I consider the suegestlm aDneannr
in Thk Anousthe other night, relative to
the milky of the franchise for a second
bridge at this point very ti nely," said a
citizen to an Arods reporter. "The gen
eral shipping interests ami Wl m-
merce of the community de nnd the im
provement," the gentlemi.n continued.
and there is no better timo to make the
move than v right at the" pres

to consider the importance of such a
bridge aside from, the connection men
tioned in Thb Argus the o. her night, to
wit: as encouragement to the proposed
new line from the direction of Jackson
ville, which as 1 know, is & fore-runner of
another trunk line into U is commuiU ?
The C, B. & Q., as we ill know, has
alwajsbeen anxious to get over into
Iowa at this point, and sooner or later it
will, but the point I desiro to present is
this. The C . M. & St. P. now has an
important division running into Rock
Island and another running into Daven
port, but they are separated entirely here,
though not a mile ap-.rt, and the freight
can only ba transferred f -om one to the
other by means of wsgns. Now my
plan is for tbe Milwaukee to go into this
bridge tcbeme, connect its two lines here
or at Davenport, and at the
same time shorten its line from
UJicao, and also from Milwaukee to
Kans is City several mites . At the same
time this would place Rock Island, Mo-
line and Davenport on a mainline of the
roal and a pretty important one, too. This
idea has been strongly ur ;ed by Secretary
DenUoa of the Davenport Business
Men's association, and it is his opinion
that it will "not require a great deal to
bring about the consumnation. At any
rate I think that a lower bridge franchise
is worth looking after, i.nd getting hold
of it possible, for the greatest trouble,
that of getting the sanction of congress.

Tonight at Harper sttcatre the great
impersonator, Alba Hey wood and his fa
mous company give one of their intellec-
lectual entertainments at Harper's theatre
tonight. This is a company of artists
whose individual meriis have beenrecog
nized by the press and j ublic in the most
flattering manner. Tl.e combination of
talent in this artistic ensemble is un
equaled by that of any similar org&niz
tion now before the public. The selec
tions in the programme are of such gen
eral excellence and so varied in character
that all tastes are appealed to and g rati
fled. The extracts of comments from the
most reliable critics. uixn their abilities
fully warrant the high position claimed
for the company. Its appearance
this season, as in the past, may
confidently be anticipated with pleasure

Considerble anxiety and comment has
been occasioned the last day or two
among neighbors in the vicinity of the
home of Mrs. John Kt use on Fourteenth
street, which was started by a report
that had gained currency that xhe lady
was sot really dead. It will be remem
be red that the lady referred to died very
suddenly on Wednesday from heart fail
ure, which was brought on by the excite'
ment cansed by the sight of surgical in
struments, which were to be used in op
crating upon her for a blood trouble,
light flash remained t pon the right side
of the face, tnd the hands
were said to have . remained
limp instead of becoming rigid. . There
was talk of postponing the funeral
but Dr. Lndewie was called this morni
insr and made a the rough examination
and pronounced the 'voman dead beyond
a doubt, the reasoti of the nusi re
maining on the face lieing on account of
the suddenness of her death. which is said
to often produce such an effect.
The funeral was held from the late
home this afternoon at 2 o'clock, and
was in charge of lc dge 496 of D. O. IL
and the Rock Ielard Eranken Yerein.
The pall bearers were Frederick Barge,
Hans Einfeldt and Peter Beselin from
the former organization and J. M

from the latter.'

The Monthly Circular issued by the
Journeymen Stone Cutters association of
North America, acd published at Minne-
polis, devotes a column to Jo Evans,
formerly of Rock Island and afterward of
Minneapolis, accompanying the same by
cut of the subject. Wnile Jo is per
haps not as good looking as his distin
guished brother, A'd. Charles Evans, of
the Fifth ward, he nevertheless possesses
pleasant, manly countenance, in fact,
is altogether a fine looking fellow. The
Monthly Circular fails to speak of Evans
as the author of "How big is Bobby Ben
nett Pa," one of the most applicable and
enjoyable parodies he ever wrote, but it
gives him this send off, in the sentiment
of which every one in Rock Island who
knows Jo will heartily acquiesce.
The subject of the following sketch.
whose genial countenance adorns this
page, was born in Welshpool, Monteom
eryshire, North Wales, in the year 1856,
and he csme to America in 1869.
He served his apprenticeship at Rock
Island Arsenal, where he developed those
traits of character which have 6ince made
him so well and favorably known amoDg
the members of our craft- A deep thinker
and ready, forcible speaker, he rapidly
forged to the front, ts an eloquent advo
cate of tbe principles of unionism and
the well fare of tbe toiling masses. Poems
ana labor essays run naently from his
pen, and tbe readers of the Circular and
tbe labor press in past ears hive been
charmed alike by his poetry and prose,
It is an opeu secret that Brother Evans
contemplates the collection of bis songs
ana poems into book form for distribu
tion amongst the fraternity. Such poems
as "Tbe Rumper's Hell," "Don't Scab
lourself my Boy," "The Jib my Father
Wore,' sbould always be preserved
among the annuals of our trade.
As a diplomatist. Bro. Evans is at bis
best Mmmapol-s branch will not soon
forget him and Harry Jones for enlisting
the sympathies of te granite cutters at
St. Cloud at the time Matt Brven took
his scats from St. Paul to the life incur
ance building in Minneapolis in 1889.
Inside of one week after starting them
Messrs Evans and Jones bad Matt Breen
cornered and forced bim to take all tbe
scabs back to bt. Paul and pay a fine of
f 2SU lor bringing his men tbere.
His speech to the men in St. Paul when
they were out on strike in '69 will be
long remembered by tbem. It was for
cible, manly and instructive. He has
held many positions of trust and honor
in our ranks, has always acquitted him
self with profit to the organization and
credit to himself.
He is a general favorite wherever he
goes, and we are glad of this opportunity
oi presenting to his fellow craftsmen a
portrait of the author of " 1 our Tool Box
Will be Raffled By-and By."
