C. H. Stoddard breathed his last at
his home, 731 Nineteenth street at 11
o'clock last night. He bad been uncon
scious for 34 hours before the final eum
mons came, and for a month or more had
been confined to his bed. Be had been
for a numl er of 'years a sufferer from
kidney ane bladder troubles, and since
last spring bis condition had been more
or less f eri )us, though during the sum
mer he had been able to be about for a
day or so.
Mr. Stoddard was born Sept.
25. 1823, in Cairo, N. Y.. a small
town at the foot of the Catskill moun
tains. His parents removed to Mason
ville, Delaware county. New York, when
he was yrt quite young, and he was
raised on a farm, assisting his father
with his wi rk. and attending a little dis
trict school in the neighborhood for one
or two mo iths during tbe winter. Un
reaching the age of 21 he started to make
his own way in the world. He had no
money and none of the advantages that
most of t?eyouDgmen have in these
days. But he possessed an abundance of
energy aid courage, and by
hard woit, faithfulness to duty
and the strictest economy he
managed U secure an education as
civil engineer at Oxford academy, Oxford,
X. Y. For a number cf years he fol
lowed civil engineering and surveying ic
New York i.nd Pennsylvania, and he as
sisted in locating tbe first railroad built
over tbe Al'eehaney mountains in Penns
sylvaniv In 1849 50 he was principal
of tbe public schools in Ilailidaysburgb,
Pa., and after serving acceptably in this
position he decided to coma west. The
year 1851 found him located in Rock
Island as a civil engineer and surveyor
which avochtion he has followed ever
since coming here'. He assisted in
locating the line of the Rock Island
railroad from Davenport across tbe
state of Icwa and also in the lo
ca'ion of the old Rock ford, Rock
Island and Bt. Louis roid, now the C, B
& Q In etrly years much of his time
was devoted to the locating of govern
ment lands n Iowa. He always mani
fested a dec p and substantial interest In
all that looked to Rock Island's up-building,
and could be depended upon to aid
as far as his means would justify, all new
industries and enterprises. He was one
of the stockholders in the Rock Is'.and
Watch company, the Rock Island Glass
company, tl e Rock Island Stove company,
the Rock Island & Milan road, and a di
rector in the latter corporation. He was
a director in the Rock Island National
bank at tbe time of his death and had
formerly beim a director in tbe Moline
National baik. Politically, be was a re
publican, aid bad been from tbe organi
zation of the party. Religiously he was
a Methodist, and was for 40 years one of
the most active members of the Metho
dist church in Rock Island. He was
known to most everybody in Rock Island,
always had a kind word for all, and many
are the expressions of grief that are heard
today over bis death.

Theodore Holdorf this morning swore
out a warrant for the arrest of Henry B
Littig on a charge of attempting to rape
the wife of the farmer. Littig was ar
rested by Officer Kramer this morning,
and his hearing will probably take place
this evening. Mrs. Holdorf's story is to
the effect that Liitig fo lowed her from
the corner of Twe'fth s'reet and Third
avenue till within a block of her borne,
on Eighth avenue and Seventeenth street
and that when they reached that point

attempted to accomplish his purpose.

The Union this morning after havirg
sat placidly by and published no part of
the circumstantial evidence accumulated
by Chief Miller in the Hill yitriol throwing
case until enough was furnished to ess
tablish a good basis of suspicion, and
then writhed because other papers had
published tbe information first, quotes
from the statutes to sustain a charge that
Chief Miller was regligent of his duty in
not holding Hill. The Argcs. which
has published daily all tbe facts in the
case as fast as they were obtained, and
which the police were perfectly justified
in quoting to tbe Union as authority on
such matters, knows that Chief Miller has
been aaxious to prosecute Hill from the
first. But be did not feel justified in doing
so without the advice of the state.s attorney.
in whose absence he consulted, not only
the best legal authority in tbe city, but
two judges and the acting state's attorney.
and was advised to let Hill go. Thb
Ahgtjs, as sail before, has no disposition
to shield the police, and it thinks the
Union ought to be tbe last to attack
them, for had some members of the night
force been as diligent in guarding their
beats as they have in running to tin
Union office every time that they pulled a
common drunk -or a vag for the mere
purpose of seeing their names in print

It appears that Uncle Jere Rusk is
congratulating tbe farmers upon the rosy
outlook, ior their surplus crop is sure
to bring good prices." Well. Uncle Jeie,
who is to be thanked for that? Are not
what are called good prices for American
farm products tbe result of abundant
crops in this country and a scarcity in
Europe? We would remind Uncle Jere
and all such that the farmers of this coun
try are wiUling to risk the price of farm
products if supply and . demand are al
lowed to govern the price. What tbe
farmers bave most seriously to complain
against is that the cost of most of their
supplies is made dearer by what is called
a protective tariff . Seel , ,

upon this, our transitory life, mentioning
that the strongest ties that bind a man
upon esrth are of a social nature. He
pictured the bright vision of a happy
hoite on a winter's nigbt, ith the chil
dren clustered about the hearth, and
afterward spoke at some length on the ad
vantages to be gained by being bonded
together in social union, andinclosicg
described the aims and workings of the
order, and elaborated the vast benefits to
be d-rivtd from it.
A quartette composed of Mrs. S. W.
Searle, Miss Jessie Bogue, Dr. W. H.
