Maiy improvements of a suostantial
naturs bave been made by the C, R. I.
& P. in and about Rock Island in tbe
past year. Tbere was talk a few months
ago of tbe company moving tbo division
end 1 3 Geoeseo where more track room
could be secured and which would also
shorten tbe division, but that talk has all
passed away and in its stead have come
improvements that not only make this
tbe permanent division end, but lock to
Rock Inland becoming the headquarters
of th 3 company west of Chicago. By
utilizing tbe f pace before left vacant be
twtei tracks, filling up ditches, etc., tbe
comiany has been able to secure consid
erable additional track room, and is
cons antly making more convenient ar-
rang .ments, being apparently now satis
fied with tbe location of the roundhouse,
A new time card will go into effect on
tbe (!., B. & Q tomorrow that will make
several chmges in tbe running of trains.
Tbe Sterlicg passenger will leave aboat
40 n inutcs later in the morning and the
S'. Louis passenger about 20 minutes
later. The St. Louis passenger will also
arrive here later in tbe evening, and tbe
Sav .cna passenger will leave at 6:45 p.
m. hereafter instead of 5:45 as formerly
Tae new time card will go into effect
on tbe a, R. I. & P. on the first Sunday
in May, or one week from next San-
day. It romises to embody some radi
cal haog s and will give Rock Island at
least two more daily passenger trains. The
new Denver limited, which will be put on
the new card will leave Chicago about
10:5 a. m. and pats through this city
about 3:45 p m.
Conductor Barney McNaney, of the
C. , M. & 8t. P., is back on this division
again, and will hereafter run into tbe city
in ("ooductor Perritt's place. Birney
formerly ran into Rock Island on the old
mirnight exprea?, and has hosts of
friends here who will be glad to know
tbac he is again to be among us.
Foreman David Fry, of the C, R. I.

working on tbe dump last night. The
palm of bis band is badly lacerated, and
tbe injury will probably ditable him for
soite time, though nothing permanent
will probably result.
JoLn Dwjer, the veteran owner of the
R. I. & P. transfer between this city and
Davenport, is lying in a critical condition
at his heme in that city. He has oper
au d the transfer lir.e for over 25 years,
an 1 is known to almost every one about
the depots here.
"Gene' Devine, an east end brakeman
on Conductor Logan's train, unfortun
ately got bis right hand caught while
mt.king a coupling at Ouawa yesterday,
with the result that he lost a part of the
in Jex finger and will probably not be
able to be at work for some time.
Freight business on all tbe roads is a
tr flc light just at present. It has kept
up pretty well for tbe past CO days, but
di ring tbe last 10 days there has been a
perceptible falling off. There has been
a slight decrease in passenger traffic also
A new order has gone into effect on tbe
C , R. I. & P. which provides that all old
bi akemen shall havj tbe preference on
fast runt. It is a sign of the company s
a ipreciationf of faithful service and is
lUtwie appreciated by tbe men.

The general committee in charge of
the solicitation of subscriptions to the
Twin -City Columbian project, are anx
ious to receive as complete reports as it
is possible to make from the house to
house solicitors at next Monday night's
meeting. There remains but one week
more for work and it is the desire that
the totals so tar bd figured up by Monday
night, so that a systematic effort may be
made among our business men during the
week to reach the $50 000 which Rock
Island stands good lo furnish. There is
no doubt that our business men will do a
good deal more than they have when
properly approached. They realize, as
they must indeed, that they are to be
benefitted if anybody is in particu.ar, by
the success of the exposition project. It
will be worth hundreds and thousands
of dollars to the business of
every merchant in Rock Island. The
figures which have been presented
with reference to the Davenport
fair demonstrate this fact beyond contro
versy. The increase in the traffic between
tbe two cities, the overwhelming rush
upon our restaurants and hotels last fall
show how much an attraction of this
kind means to Rock Island, even with it
in our own town, and it may be further
added that the banks of Rock Island show
a gain of $25,000 during tair week in
Davenport last year. How much greater
would be tbe results if tbe attractions
were held cn this side of the river.
The reception of the committee which
appeared before the county board yester
day showed how popular the enterprise
has become in the country district al
ready. After the gentlemen had been
heard in presentation of the plans
of tbe project, the supervisors all
expressed themselves in favor of it and
willing to help it in every way possible in
their respective communities.
Let our city do its sbare, and it will not
be to the shame of Rock Island should
the undertaking fail, but The Argus has
never considered that there was any dan
ger of it failing.
Helpea Load tbe K.flrn
A survivor oi tbe mack Hawfc war is
still living in Freeport, in the person of
Mrs. William Lawhorn. She is the widow
of one of that band of settlers who helped
to build the fort on Apple river, which was
afterward attacked by the Indians. It was
constructed of split logs set en end and
making a stockade 12 feet high. Tbe
wagons and goods of tbe settlers' fam
ilies were taken ineide. and there gath
ered the men, women and children,
when the news reached them of the ad
vance of Black Hawk and his blood
thirsty warriors. The whites did not
have long to wait. Three hundred and
fifty braves in full war-paint suddenly
appeared on the crest of tbe prairie
After three hours of hard fighting, tbe
Indians were repulsed by the sharp and
unerring fire from the settlers' rilLs tak
ing their dead with tbem. Oce of the
whites, Haskel Rhodes, was killed and two
were wounded. During tbe siege Mrs.
Lawhorn and the other women moulded
bullets and helped tbe men to load their
rifles. As tbe Indians drew off, the set
tlers sallied forth, only to fall into an
ambuscade and lose several of their force.
Mrs. .Lawhorn attends the reunions of tbe
few Black Hawk veterans who surviye.
She is now nearly 92 years old, and was
about 30 years of age at the time of the
fight on Apple river.
Toniall-) Thi Term.
Yesterday was the last day of service
for the May term of court. A total of 73
new cases have been filed in the circuit
clerk's office, 36 of which are in chancery
and 42 in law. It may be a noteworthy
fact that ''Tomalley" Searle, having fail
ed to support his precipe by filing bis
bill of damages against The A rocs tbe
grievance which be alleges on behalf of
his itinerant clients, will not be heard at
tbe May term, in view of which the pub
lic will no doubt breathe easy.
At the meeting of the supervisors yes
terday afternoon tbe judiciary committee,
who were instructed to in juire into tbe
legality of the city councils of Molineand
Rock Island appointing their respective
poormaster, reported that the cities bad
such right under the law. Tbe question
then arose who should pay their salary
tbe city or the county and ' after being
discussed at some length, it was laid over
until the July meeting. After transact
ing considerable other business of minor
importance, the board adjourned.
