in the Ki:stablkhment of the Lonilon
Clothing company, the practical conclu
sions arrived at being brk fly stated last
A conference was held yesteidiy at the
Ilarper between Sweeney & Walker, at
torneys for the lodgement creditors.
Jackson & Hurst, attorneys for the at
taching creditors, and Hon. Charles Dun
ham, of Ganeseo, who represented J. B.
8x. the purchacer of the stock. The
conference continued al! the morniDg and
until late in the afternoon when a settlp.
ment was agreed upon whereby the entire
Stock was sold to J. B. Sax for 24 000
that amount being immediately used in
paying off the creditors who were repre
sented. The following are the exct figures:
Sheriff's cofto, $326.64; Sweeney &
Walker, $11.304 34; and Jackson &
Hurst, 13 869 12. The store will con
tinue under the name of the London
Clothing f tore, and will be managed by
Messrs. E J.Leveen and M. C. Rice, the
latter bein? from Ottumwa,Iowa,and who
will ehorily become a resident of Rock
Island. Mr. Sax, who enjoys the repu
tation of being the most extensive cloth
ing dealer in Iowa, being Urgely interest
ed in that business at Ottumwa.will give
the business here bis personal attention,
and by increasing the stock and assort
ment, will give Rook Island a
store s?cond to none in the
state outside of Chicago. He
is a wide-Hwake progressive business man
of sound judgment, and his varied expire
knee acd business qualifications will
make him a valuable acquisition to Rock
Island business circles. Mr.. Sax has
other attachments in Reck Island which
will tend to make bis associations here
more pie want, being a sonMnlaw of
Meyer Kosenfield, and be naturally
feels an ciiuual amount of interest in
locating hjre. Tue work of invoicing
the stock was begun this morning, and
the store will probably not be thrown
open to the public for a number of days,
due notice of which will be given. Tue
very low price at which the stock was
purchased will make it possible for Mr.
Sax to giva the public the benefit of the
reduction, which be has signified his in
tention of doing.
tueoiacotps oi clerks will remain
under the new proprietorship, with the ex
ception of T. F. LtiVelle who has signed
a contract with acotber Rock Island firm.
and his mi ny friends will be pleased to
learn that be will remain in the city.
Tonight at Harper's theatre will be ere
sented the great melodramatic produc
tion, "777 " The Chicago Glebe says of
A. YY. i reemont made his appearance
in the drama. '777." at Havlin theatre
yesterday. Both the matinee and the
evening performance were well attended.
The scene is laid in a Louisiana prison,
' 777 being the number of one of the
prisoners. The dialect stories and skits
compose a good proportion of the entire
play, and in many cases the work is highly
commendable. One of the finest scenes
is a graphic representation of -the Ne
Orleans gsmbling dens.
The 'Ttail of rtkin," which is one of
the brightest of all comic operas that has
ever been produced on the American
state within the last decade, will be given
at the Buitis opera bouse, Davenport,
Ibis evening. The company is composed
of 40 peop e including some of tbe best
talent of tie lyric stsga. No expense has
been spare 1 by tbe management to give
out theatre-goers a real treat both to tbe
eye bnd car. The costumes are perfectly
gorgeous, itnd those who may have had
the nleaaute of seeing the opera in tbe
past, will readily discover that new muBic,
songs and duets have been added. This
comoanv c irries their own orchestra as
well as all Hcenery used in tbe production,
which is an assurance that the opera will
be presented in first class style. When
seats are Disced on sale, we advise our
friends to secure them early, so as to be
able to have a good choice.

An End to tbe Fioeeedtas:..
The Peoria Transcript of yesterday
morning contains the following with
reference to the disposition of the Henne
pin canal condemn ation suits in the United
Stales courl :
Yesterday in the United Riotu
the case of the condemned lands along the
proposed route of the Hennepin canal was
taken up. Earlier in the term tbiB cise
was expected to mean long litigation, acd
it Was planned to impanel the iury here
and then lake them to Rock l.land e.ud
over the csnal route. But the case came
to a sudden termination. After the jury
had been impane.led it was announced
that the entire matter had been comprom
ised. There are 82 land nvnura ;nur
38ttd in tbe Droceertino-n. ni nil f thm
bHd entered Into an agreement to settle
wnnm.i timber litigation. All that re
mained for the jury to do was to fettle
tbe question of damages in some ca9es
wnere u ntd not already been done.
Tbe principal property hclJcrs obtain
ing judgment were as follows:
David PdVne. $!S9: A . Potorann
P. HnioaeeJ. $493 20; Swan Johnson.

rahN-wt.Tg. $400; M. Bochm.n, $125.
There weie some 50 other small claims,
nsn-e' ii -si receiving $3. and G M. Lu
ken $52. while the
each. It was expected that theri would
be a claim of $3,000 from D. L. Cunkle
for water power Improvement in front of
the town of Milan, but this was dismissed,
as slated in last night's Abotjs. The city
of Rock Island and the town of Milan
giye all the dctired right of way across
certain highways, conditional on the con
struction of bridgrs, and a contract of
similar tenor which is subject to ratifica
tion by tbe secretary of war, was taken
The condemnation of tbis right of way
leaves no obstacle in the way of the exe
cution of the contracts for the work.
The plans and specifications are all in
shape. Bids by contractors will have to
be invited, contract made, opened in due
form, deliberated upon, and contracts
awarded. This furnishes a good deal of
clerical and official work, and will occupy
a considerable amount .of time. Tbe
contractors cannot do anything before
next spring. Frost will be in the way of
work in a very short time, and there will
be nothing to do but to wait. For this
delay, as tbe Democrat trnly states, tbe
people of Rock Island, Day cd port, and
the west have to thank the untiring en
ergy that left unturned no stone
that could possibly be placed as a stum
bling block in the path of the work.
One whole season has been lost and
nothing has been tangibly gained by the
delay. It remains to be seen whether or
not the work of obstruction will be con
tinued next season

Pure Ulupe Juice.
An old German who bas been making
wine in this town for many years past not
long ago conceived the idea of selling tin
fermented grape juice by the glass. Ac
cordingly he set up a little cider press in
the front of his establishment and adver
tised grape juice at live cents a glass. He
buys grapes by the crate and squeezes out
the juice right before the eyes of his cus
tomers. He pours it into glasses from a
stone pitcher, and it is an uncommonly
popular drink because its purity is abso
lutely assured. New York Sun.

Tbe people of Burlington, Dubuque
and elsewhere who have been fighting
the Hennepin canal have not been con
sulting the interests of the Mississippi
river or the welfare of tbe country in gen
eral. 1 he attitude of the river men ia
well set forth in The River, a veritable
rivermen's advocate, published at St
Louis. It says:
With tbe influence in congress that the
opening of tbe Hennepin canal would
bring from Chicago and the great north
west, the people could ask for double tbe
appropriation now asked for acd get it.

Probably the most useful
thing I have received this fall,
is an alcohol lamp, stand, and
kettle, all brass, which I am
now showing. It is pretty
enough to be ornamental, and
cheap enough for any one. For
the sick room, or for any one
who wishes to heat say a quart
of water at a moment's notice,
they are j net the thing.
