Negotiations which have been pending
for sometime with C. N. Hooper, re pre

dustry to Hock Island resulted last
night is a practica consumption
oi the deal. The required
capital stock has been nearly all sub

cal men having became interested in the
project. The question of site has not
yet been entirely determined, but is very
likely will bo in a day or two. Several
very desirable locations have been of
fered Mr. Hooper gratis , and strong in
ducements held out to him by each. He
has all the sites under consideration and
will make his seclection as soon as possi
The new industry brings to Rock It-l
and all the way from 20 to 40 skilled me
chanics with their families and will em
ploy when in full operation, 100 men in
a'.l. Mr. Hooper has been identified
with the works ever since they started, is
thoroughly experienced and practical and
added to these advantages has a large
acquaintance with the trade throughout
the country, and withal is a very pleas
ant gentlenian who will prove a
valuable acquisition to Rock Island
business and social circles.
This make s two new industries the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement as
sociation has planted in Rock Island this
fall, representing a capital investment of
$75,000 and giving employment to 150
men. And what is better still, thi asso
ciation has another on the string, as im
portant as either of these, which it will
in all probability secure.
On Tuesdt.y evening at Harper's thea
tre we are to have that rollicking comedy,
The Devil's Editor," of which the Phil
adelphia Tines says:
Quite a Urge company of acknowledged
fun-makers served a double purpose at
the Park last night. Besides opening the
season at thht handsome house, they in
troduced to Philadelphia a new farce
comedy cf the most uproarious descrip
tion. "The Devil's Editor," is the title
of this new tspirant for public favor, and
it was presetted in an exceedingly clever
manner by sn exceedingly clever com
pany. The play itself is a vehicle on
which a nun.ber of highly amusing cir
cumstances ride, bnt they combine to
excite laughter, and the large au
dience that helped to open the season
went away well pleased with the
entertainmet t provided. Sheridan and
Flynn, who perpetuated that awful Mc
Ginty song, head the company, but they
are ably assisted by little Alice Harrison,
than whom to better actress at present
graces the farce-comedy branch of the
profession. She sings and dacces with
all her old-time spirit and is the life of
the plav. OLher parts are played by
Frank Doane, Thomas J. Grady, Henry
S- Mack Ha tie Delaro Barnes, Hattie
Anderson, racie Chase and many oth
ers. The soaas are bright, the dialogue
witty, and as the piece is well staged and

Sprague's "Social Session" company
drew another large audience last evening.
This is one of the very few attractions
whose audier ces increase with each per
formance. The company is one of the
best we have ever had in farce-comedy,
and is fully as good as "City Directory,"
"Parlor MaUb," etc. The performance
is more than pleasing; it is excellent.
Everybody knows Jarbeau. She is the
pretty, witty, fascinating little woman,
charming singer and daring dancer who
has seen us, and whom we have seen, in
some of the neatest burlesque and farce
comedy work on the stage. The piece in
which she appears was written for her
appearance as a star, and she has carried
it and made money with it for four years,
That is sufiic ent evidence of her popu
larity and merit. She will appear at the
Burtis at Davenport next Tuesday even
The Port Byron school case which
has attracted so much attention in the
circuit court the past week was concluded
this morning. The arguments were all
finished and the case went to the jury
The jury returned a - verdict of net
guilty lute this afternoon.
The arguments in the Swing-Emmons
habeas corpus case came up before Judge
Smith again this morning and at the
outset. Attorney William McEnlry, on
behalf of the defendant, said that if the
states attorney would come into open
court and state that he had made an ex
amination of the evidence In this case
and that he btlieved there was sufficient
evidence to a-arrant the magistrate in
holding the defendant to the grand jury,
he would press the habeas corpus no fur
ther. The ca.ie is proceeding this after -noon,
with John Looney and J. T. Ken
worthy appea-ing for the prosecution,
and William HcEniry and E. E. Par
menter for tbo defense.

body at the Evcnaville Waterways con
vention this month. The delegations of
the Tri citws oueht to join teams and go
in a body. There will even be enough of
them to take a special car if they choose.
Why not this aggregued delegation go
there in that waj ? The expense will not
be materially increased, and the effect
upon the convention of such a solid body
of representative citizens will be worth
securing. The convention of next vear
ought by all means to be entertained at
this point, and that will be a good way
to go after it Davenport Democrat.
This morning Mayor McConochie ap
pointed ex-Mayor Henry Carse and Capt.
Durham delegates on behalf of the city.
Both will go.
Apropos of what the Democrat says
about Davenport securing the convention
iextyear.it may be expected that the
Rock Island delegates will jMn han-'s to
secure that end. Rock Island has never
shown a spirit of antagonism to Diven
port, but rather has been disposed friend
ship. Speaking of the importance of the con
vention at Evansvi le and of the improve
ment of our Inland waterways, Capt.
George Lamont said thismorninc: "Rock
Island is very much in need of some river
improvements. Never before was this
more keenly realizad than during the sea
son of low water we have jast had. I
tell you $10,000 to $15,000 devoted to
digging out ihe harbor in front of the
city would be wisely expended, and the
government would give it surely if it
would give 15,000 to Port Byron for sim
ilar purposes. As it is now boats cannot
make a landing here in low water, and it
is all the ferry can do to get in and out at
any time now. The matter is one which
should receive the attention of the Rock
Island Improvement association, too, it
seems to me."

Henry Swanson, a resident of Moline,
about 50 years of age, was badly injured
by being run over by an electric car at
at the corner of Second and Iowa streets.
Davenport, last evening at about 8
o'clock. According to the story of the
motorneer of the car the man was under
the influence of liquor and was walking
along the street car track. The motor
man claims to have rung his gong and
stopped his car twice and then attempted
to pass the man when he was fairly out
of the way, but that Swanson' stag
gered back into the track just in time to
get run over. One of the man's legs was
broken in two places and was nearly sev
ered at the ankle. Ee was taken in the
patrol wagon to the police station, where
Dr. Hill dressed the injured limb as well
as was possible. He was then taken to
Mercy hospital. There the injured limb
was amputated at the ankle.
Dr. Allen, who with Dr. Hill, per
formed the amputation, reports that the
man is as comfortable as could be ex
pected and would probably survive the
mishap and resultant operation.
The 7-year-old daughter of Detlef
Steffen, of Davenport, was the victim of
a sad and unusual accident yesterday
afternoon. She was playing near her
home, when a horse that had escaped
from the stable of William Witt ran over
her, the horse implanting its foot on the
little one's breast, inflicting injuries from
which she died within a few minutes.
A serious accident occurred this morn
ing in the car house of the Davenport &
Rock Island railway company on the
Davenport side. E. W. Forsyth,
workman in the company's employ, had
been employed on the second floor and
stepped upon the elevator to go down
when it dropped to the floor, a distance
of 20 feet, Mr. Forsyth falling with it and
sustaining miuries about tne Dacs and
Bpine which may prove fatal.
