Davenport has dug up another fault
with the street railway syndicate. Tbe
Democrat says: "There is & great deal
of eni rgetic complaint to the effect that
tbe stops on the street cars here are alto
gether too high for the comfort or con
venieiice of passengers. There is toe
much truth in the fault that is found, but
it does not seem to be an easy matter
now to remedy the fault. If the motor
mechanism is to be kept off the ground
and oi.t of the mud the cars must be set
high. In some towns the steps are low
and U e motors are fairly dragged over
A n imber of attempts have been made
of late to fire the Hodge brass works at
Dubuque which Rock Island came within
aninciof securing a few months ago.
The Dibuque Telegraph says:
An iioon today another fire was dis
covered at Hodge & Watters' old brass
foundry ou the east side of Clay street
between Eighth and Ninth. The fire de
partment was sommoned and extin
guished the blaze. It was found this had
started from a pile of waste on top of a
post in the sand cellar directly beaeath
the joii-t of the first floor. Part of the
floor was burned.
A fe v weeks ago a fire was discovered
in exactly the same place at exactly tbe
same h iur of tbe day and the damage was
about the same as it was today. About
10 dijs ago another fire was discovered
n the t neiDe room. Both Mr. Watters
and Mr . Hodge were about the premises
some time before the fire this morning.
Mr. Wtaters met Mr. Hodge going in the
back way and they had an angry discus
sion. When they parted both left the
premises, Mr. Hodge saying he was go
ing to the Iowa Iron works and Mr. Wat
ters driving up town.
Officer Klauer discovered the smoke
issuing from the cellar at noon and gave
the alarm. He detected the smell of oil
in tbe f moke. The workmen told him a
suspicious character had been seen about
the place during the morning.

"Boss" Wells, after reading the narra

Saturdcy evening's Amies, suspended
him. In speaking of the matter to a
friend the boss said that he bad known
of the I ttle circumstance during the day,
but did not think it would be brought to
public notice, but the fact that the car
rier was intoxicated, and at The Argus
office st the same time, was sufficient
cause for his dismissal. The boss, no
doubt, thought that if the carrier referred
to had been at the Union office instead of
The Altai's he would have been more in
