Tbtre was not the usual oratory which
the aldermen throw in for nothing at
las' night's council neeting.but there
was so me discussioL of matters of im

considerable public interest. The reso

waterway convention at some point be

An 1 uuHumlly Bu-y lay in the Loral
A German, who gives his name as
William Sohuble, was robbed of $175 in
money by twocompaaiots while comiDg
from Davenport in a hack driven by Wil
liam Perry last night. The victim re
lated his story to Officer Mulqueen on
Twenty-fourth street last ntht and
pointed out a man to the t Hi :er whom he
said was one of the n en that had robbed
cim. He was arrest" d and taken to tbe
Armory, where be give his came as John
Leslie, but claimed to know nothing tf
tLe robbery. Tbe man who had been
robbed went back to Davenport and noti
fied the police the-e, and two officers
came over to ttis side to look
for the guilty parties suppos'ng that
the robbery had been committed on that
side of the river, but ii has since developed
that it wis done while the hack was
crossing the north approach to the via
duct on what is known as the slough
bridge. John Allen, known among his
associates as "Yellow ' Allen, was arrested
by the pe'.ice at the City hotel on Twen
tiethreet this morning and $100 was
found on bis person. Tbe two men were
taken.to Davenport befere the exact loca
tionof the robbery had been determined,
and if the men refuse to come over to this
side it will be necessary to get out requi
sitionjpapere. l'eiry, the hackman, is
also under arrest in Davenport and all
three will be brought over to have thei
heuing as soon as possible.
William McCaw was brought before
Magistrate.Wivill jes erday afternoon on
a charge ef larceny on complaint of Otto
Rahn, who claims that he and McCaw
had exchanged horses on trial prepara
tory to trading, and that as he was not
satisfied with McCaw's horse he went to
get his own back, but that individual re
fused to .return Raha's horse, claiming
that they had traded Rahn then at
tempted to replevin it, but the horse had
disappeared, and now the charge of lar
ceny is lodged against McCaw. Tbe case
was postponed until 'oday, and is being
tried this afternorn before Magistrate
Theodore Hnldof, Henry Butler, Au
gust GoUsch and WTliam Eckerman are
being tried for essault and battery before
Justice Cook this afternoon on warrants
sworn out by Jamex Campbell. The
case grows out of the free for all that
occurred at GoUsch 's place on Saturday
night. There was bo evidence against
the accused and they were discharged.
Miss Anna Koester, the fair maid of

is in this city.
George Thompson was fined 93 and
