III Roam at the Rock Island House
and Escapes A-phyxlat-.on ,by Kot
Heine Able to tUerp.
E. H. Parks, of Elkhorn, Wis., came
down on tbe Milwaukee road last night
and registered at tbe Rock Island house.
He went to bed shortly after and nothing
was heard from him until about 2 o'clock
this morning, when he came down to the
office and said he was nmble to sleep.
Night Clerk Black at once detected tbe
odor of gas on bis clothes and went up
to the room that Parks had just left aad
found ihe gas turned on, and the room
and hall filltd with gas. He immediately
opened the windows and allowed it to
escape, atd then went back down stairs
and askel the stranger how he had put
out the light up stairs last night.
"Blowed it out," came the reply.
' Didn't you notice something wrong.
or didn't your head ached?'' inquired the
'I put the cover over my hesd." re
plied tbe stranger, "but I couldu't sleep.
m not used to traveling, I guis-;" and
his last statement was to all appearances
correct, as be became greatly excittd
when told that he came very near blow-
ng out his own liht also, and finally
aid he remembered reading something
about people being asphyxiated, but nev
er knew what it was before, and be
wouldn't tat;e any chances with gas its
again, and so sat up the rest of the night.

Speafcing of the split in tbe First Bap
tist church in Moline, the Republican
Journal of last evening statts:
There was a very important meeting
of the entire membership cf the Firat
Baptist church, seceders excepted, last
evening. The prudential committee, an
outline of whose action has been given,
made their report. Messrs. J. .K.
Groom aDd P. A. Keller, the committee
appointed by tbe seceding members, were
present, out Pastor Young invited them
to leave the church, saying it was con
trary to church usages for any of tbe ap
plicants to be present when their cases
were being passed upon . The gentlemen
retired, when after further deliberation a
vote was taken and letters of dismissal
granted to S3. Tbe church refused letters
to three of the applicants, against whom,
they assert, charges are resting. One of
these three, it is claimed, refused to par-
don a sister of tbe church when she asked
forgiviness, in this way violating her
church covenant. The three members
say they would appe-,1 their cases were
there any higher tribunals as in the Meth
odist chutch. As it is the probability is
they wi,l simply drop out, and associate
with the new church.
At a meeting at the house of Rev. J.
C. H. Read in Moline last night tbe Tab
ernacle Baptist church was formally or
ganized, and it was decided to hold ser
vices in the Y. M. C. A. building Sun
day morning and evening. Rev. Read.
who had withdrawn from the. old church,
and also J. K. Groom and wife, and W.
H.. Carpenter, tbe latter three of whom
bad been refused letters of dismissal, were
admitted to the new congregation on con
fession of faith. Rev. J. C. H. Read was
extended a call as supply pastor and acs
cepted. The first service cf tbe new
church will be held next Sunday morning
when Mr. Read will preach on the "Mis
sion of a New Chnrch."
Two men, strangers in the city, applied
for lodging at the II itel G jrdon on Mar
ket square last nigbt. They were as
signed to a room, and before midnight
they had entered the room of a regular
boarder named Smith and relieved his
pockets of a silver watch and $2 in
money. They then left the hotel and
are at large.
A few days ago a $20 bill was stolen
from the shew case in the shooting gal
lery under the Hotel Gordon. The po
lice were notified, and Chiet Miller sus
pected a boy named Clyde Chipping,
living in Guyer's addition, of the theft.
He got after the boy, who returned the
bill to its owner by poking it through the
keyhole. Chief Miller nabbed the boy,
and also has conclusive evidence that he
and another boy robbed the house of
