Tbe bUz 9 which be created near the Bur
lington round bouee, there were many
who wern disposed to claim was not the
ork of s d incendiary, but investigation
bj tbe police revealed tbe fact that it was.
Officer Kramer, after making a close ex
aninatio i of the property, informed an
Argus teporter this morning that he
was satis led that the little building ws
fired, as the ttcVe was in an entirely dif
ferent part of tbe building from the place
where tha lire originated, acd further
more there was no fire in tbe stove last
The ah.rm at 750 o'clock last evening
cime-froiu the C, B. & Q. round house.
Tne paid department responded with its
usual promptness, and found the frame
building nt the corner of First avenue
and Fiftesnth street, which is used as a
repair shop, in flames. Tbe prompt ac
tion of th) departmeet subdued thu flames,
but not btfore tbe roof of tbe
building bad been badly damaged, and
the loss will probably be about $200.
The fire as undoubtedly the work of an
incendiary, as there bad been no fire in
the build ng since morning, and the roof
being new, no sparks could possibly have
gotten into the place where the fire orig
inated, w bicb was in tbe second story
among some encrine curtains and seasoned
lumber, which occupied the upper floor.
William Uice, the night man, had been
in tbe bui ding a short time before, and
obf erved nothing unusual .
Later in tbe evening a couple of suspi
cious loot ing individuals were seen lurk
ing about tbe Silver Plating works, and tbe
police wee communicated with by tele
phone. Tbe patrol wagon was stnt up
flying, but when it arrived tbe men had
disappeared, and though a careful search
of the pit mises was made, they could not

The city of Davenport and the B ., C.
R. & N. road are still at sword's points
over the railroad company having taken
possession of ground for a switch and
the city hiving ripped up the tracks tres-
pasBirg or. th forbidden teiritory. Sat
urday Joe R. Lane, attorney for the
road, secu red from Judge Brannaa at
Muscatine, a temporary injunction res
straining tbe city from farther interfering
with the ti ack. In conversation about
tbe matter, Mr, Lane, the attorney of the
company, said that the company consid
ered the ordinance as fully covering the
case. Thu ground upon which tbe track
is laid is in private ownership, and the
owners had signified their willingness to
have tbe track laid. The city has no right
to tear it tip, not owning the ground and
having nothing to do with its ownership
or possession. Even if tbe city did have
rights, it was wrong In tearing up tbe
track. . There is no sanction under law
for tbe renoval of any track in such a
manner. All that can be done in advance
of tbe laying of a track is to secure
injunction against that work, and af
ter a lra:k is down all that can
be done t) secure an appraisement of
damage in 3icted and collect them from
the owner of tbe track. In this country
railroads can take property wherever it is
necessary, as far as that goes, upon pay
ment of ju;it damages to the owners from
whom it is seized. Mr. Lane did not
say that the company would seek to col
lect from tbe city the sum in which it has
been damaged by the action of tbe latter
in the removal of tbe track, but he inti
mated that this case will be carried to the
conclusion, whatever that may be. Tbe
company bad understood, he said, that it
had certain rights heie. These rights are
now in disoute, and now the company
will proceed to determine whether it does
in fact pos wss those rights or not.
Tbe city's representatives were com
plaining S aturday that their shoulders
were sore tnd there muscles strained with
tbe un won ;ed exertion of lifting rails and
ties, but they bad no regrets for what
they had d me. Aid. Smith was quite as
positive as Mayor Ficke that the rights of
the city ha 1 been trampled in tbe dust,
along with its dignity, but, be said, the
work of demolition had been done un
der the advice of the city attorney. The
city's reprejentatives still hold the opin.
ion that the cempany tried to steal a mean
march on it, and do not accept the state
ment that it was necessary to lay the
track at nu;ht if it was to be laid at all.
The end is not yet.

The special Y. M. C. A. services at tbe
First M. E. church at 8 o'clock yesterday
afternoon were presided over by A. D.
S Derry. president of the Rock Island as
sociation, and opened with congregational
singing followed by scripture reading by
Rev. J. II. Kerr. This was followed by
a solo by Dr. Charles McCandless, of
Davenport, entitled, "Where is HeavenT
The first speaker was Q. C. Blakeslee,
the ceceral secretary of the Rock Island
Y. M. C. A. The audience listened to
a most interesting address, Mr. Blakeslee
giving some of his own experience in tbe
work. He poetesses the ability of holding
the closest attention of his bearers, and
the giving of such facts as are listened to
with mucrj appreciation. He gave an
outline t f the field of work and what ef
forts were made to reach the young men
of today for the cause of Christ and the
church. This demands organization, and
this the state committee and international
committee are the central points from
which it is given, and men, who make
suggestions in regard to carrying on the
work, visit the associations throughout the
entire country, for the purpose of
strengthening weak associations, and
outlining work for others. The work of
the international committee is divided
into about seven parts. The work for
young men in colleges, is a most
important part of the work. It is said
that those who leave college without bes
comiug christians while in college, seldom
do so. There are at present 60,000 young
men in our colleges. The work atnorg
the 1,800.000 is one that is attracting the
attention of our moneyed tings, is the
second part. EHoits are being made to
reach the 500.000 colored young men in
the south, also the German speaking
young men, work for commercial trav
elers, work in tbe larger cities and work
in foreign lands, is demanding tbe time
and money of many young men in this
country for the prosecution cf the work.
Tbe second speaker was E. B. Mc
Kown. Mr. McKown stated that the in
ternational committee was composed of
39 business men from almost every state
in the union, who give their services von
untary, meeting once a month, and plan
ning work for their secretaries. He gave
some interesting facts concerning their
work, and the many young men who were
reached by their efforts. He also stated
that our own association was indebted to
them for our existence.
Frank Nadler, of Davenport, was tbe
third speaker. His manner of address
and enthusiasm which he possesses has
won for him many warm friends. He
occupies responsible positions in the as
sociation which he represents, and a man
with better business capabilities is seldom
met with. Mr. Nadler spoke of tbe re
sponsibility as a association, as individuals
and as people. Many of his own experien
ces were givtn, which portrayed tbe ne
cessity of an existing association in this
and every other city in tbe United States.
At tbe request of the international
committee a collection was taken np for
the prosecution of its work, which was
liberally responded to . The meeting was
closed with prayer by Rev. Merrill.

Another instance of premeditated devil
try occurred on Second avenue at
5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, when
Axtel Johnson, of Moline, stand
ing on the north side of Second
avenue hurled a ro:k through the west
window of I. Bamberger's clotbing
store. Officer Kramer who happened to
be in tbe block promptly took Johnson
into custody, and to him tbe prisoner
sta'ed that he had fired a revolver nt a
man across the street and that be bad
shot too high acd the bullet bad done the
mischief. Officer Kramer has the rock
which was thrown, however, and also has
proof that Johnson had previously stated
that he intended to commit some act of
depredation to get in jail for the winter.
He had stated that be had some money
and as soon as it was spent be would be
prepared to get in jail for the winter.
There is a man awaiting trial in jail just
now for a similar offense, and if both
could be sent to tbe renitentiaiy for their
offense it might cure them of their vil
lainy and also prevent further such
acts of violence.
There is nothing new in the Hill case.
Chief Miller accompanied Hill to Daven
port Saturday night and Druggist Har
rison, of whom he purchased the nitric
acid, identified Hill as tbe man to whom
he sold tbe vitriol. When Mr. Harrison
told Hill that he was the man who puis
chased the acid the latter became enraged
and called Mr. Harrison a liar, the insult
being promptly resented by Mr. Har
rison's brother.and but for tbe interference
of Chief Miller there would have been
serious trouble. Mr. Harrison says he
would take his oath that Hill was the man
who bought tbe nitric acid, that he gave
his name as William Johnson of Daven
port, and said he wanted it for a friend
living in the country .
Will Morrison, colored, of this city, and
Link Roberts, of Davenport, got into
trouble over a colored woman in Daven
port Saturday night, and the result was
that Roberts drew a razor and slashed
Morrison across tbe neck. He was
afterward caught and taken to the police
station, but as Morrison's cut is not seri
ous, he will probably be let down pret'y

last week inspecting the Christy Cracker

O. H. Jewell, of the Jewell Filter,
Chicago, arrived this mornirg and he
states the improvements on the Cable
filter plant at the waterworks will be
oomplfted in a month's Urns.
"You see," said Mr. Jewe'l, "we first
figured at 2.000,000 gallons pumping
capacity in 2t hours, whereas the city
uses the Dest part of that amount be
tween 7 a. in. and 7 p. m. in hail liie
time contemplated, owing to Rock Island
being a much larger mannfecturing
center than we were aware cf. Owing
to this fact the filter plants end pumps
were run beyond their capacity . In order
to obviate all difficulties and to mske the
plant enlinly satisfactory, Mr. Cable has
arranged with trie to increase the pumping
capacity to 4 iOo.Oilu tsiid ilc inter piaiil
proportionately, so that when cur present
plans are carried out Bock Island will
have the purest water in the world, I can
guarantee that. Mr. Cable has also
arranged to have the filter house enlarged
and improved and put in the best condi
tion possible. It is expected that the
plant will be in runniug rbspe and in
complete operation by Dec. 1. The in'
creased capacity and improvements will
involve a large additional outlay of 'unda,

thing shall be first class and he will accept
