sensation last night. At
midnight he dashed into tbe Rock Island
house and demanded the keys to the po
lice and fire alarm box on Market square
stating that a man was pursuing him with
a knife and he desired the patrol wagon.
In his excitement, however, he inserted
the fire" key and in a second the alarm
rang out from 83, and the entire fire dei
partment and police patrol were on hand
in kss than two minutes' lime. The chief
of the fire department took possession of
the keys and Chief of Police Miller is
looking into the other side of the case to
day. This ariernoon Chief Ramskiil received
through the mail aletter from Mr. Corcoran
in which he speaks of bis mistake in call
ing out the fire department instead of
the police, end in which he
fully apologizes for so do:ng. - He also
compliments tne paid department on its
prompt response and says the city should
be proud of it.

lau evening, tbe number embracing al
most every employe of the Waeon Com
pany, to listen to the report of their com
mittee, and to thestatemeut of Mr. Rosen
field regarding the obnoxious check sys
tem. John Johnson presided. Mr.
Rosecfield was given the floor, and in a
conservative and kindly mannerexplained
tbe intention of the company in adopting
tbe system, and asked them to give it a
tr'a' for two weeks, and offered to abide
by th ir decision at the end of that time.
When the vote was taken and a division of
the house ordered, however, tbe vast
crowd was almost unanimous against the
checks, only four men voting to give them
atrial. It was then decided to hold a
meeting on next Monday evening to bear
Mr. Rosenfield's final decision. The
meeting then adjourned. Moline lia-pubiican-Journal.
