The obtaining of the Brooks tract, the
details c. nceming which appeared in last
evening' AKous.for Columbian purposes,
places hi important responsibility on the

duty to the two Cities which is commend
able in a high degree, and have manifes
ted their coifidence in the people to carry
out what, they have undertaken to do.
The people will not.forsake them. They
will tbo'v that they are not only willing,
but capable of doing all that is
expected of them completing the or
ganization of the Twin-City asso
ciation. It now becomes the duty cf ev
ery citiz :n of both cities to do his part.
It is essential to the success of the pro
ject, and it is all that is essential. The
land now belongs to the people provid
ed they want it and will avail themselves
of the opportunity to secure it. There
has been no such idea as fail in the
minds of those who have undertaken this
great public enterprise from the first, and
yeeterdsj's transaction strengthens the
confidence of those who have stood by it,
stimulates the courage of these who have
had fears and gives the whole project an
impetus that will ca.ry it through to suc
cess. . Saturday evening the Twin-City Col
umbian committee will hold an adjourn

MR. CABLE'S WORK.
Mr. Haas Brines a ttlowlnc it-port
of the Labors of the Reek Island
"You cannot speak too highly of the
work of Congressman Cable," said Fred
Hass th's morning. "I say this not so
much because of the personal admiration
I have always bad for Mr. Cable, as I do
because I consider his efforts deserving
of the appreciation of his constituents.
There is not a harder working member of
the house, and this is true of him all the
time. Notwithstanding, too, that he is
laboring under the disadvantage of the
determination of Chairman Uolman, of
the appropriations committee to cut ev
erything down to the last notch, con
sistent with absolute needs, Mr. Cable
will accomplish much more than the av
erage member of the house. He is a man
of influence, and commands the admira
tion of every member of the house, be
cajse of his energy, his genialty and so
cial qualities. He an'l Congressman
are Hayes working.I might say, night and
day for their districts, the interests of

cured it will be mainly through the efi

"Uontlanrd for nervier
In the circuit court yesterdiy when
Judce Gienn was calling the law docket
for defaults, when the case was reached of
James M. Beck vs. The Argcs the to-,
malley suit Mr. Searle had the entry
made, "continued for service." The
great tomalley attorney wou'd have acted
in accordance with the truthful sit
uation and subjected himself to less ridi
cule in the eyes of the bar bai he man -fully
entered the order of dismissal which
he will eventually make. His order of
"continued for 8ervi-"e," is as absurd as
his bringing the suit and fully on a par
with such act, for it was upon instruc
tions from Mr. Searle bimEelf to bold the
papers until further orders that the sher
iff did not serve them- Perhaps Searle
has adopted this method of delaying mat
ter until he can raise from his much
abused clients the necessary court costs.
The copious rainfall of the past two
nights have not only swollen all the rivers
hereabouts, filled cellars, wells and cis
terns in Rock Island, but reports from
several of the country villages are that
they are inundated and that while no ex
tensive damage is done no end t incon
venience has been occasioned.
The heavy rains played havoc again
last night with the C, R. I. & P. tracks
at Tiskilwa, Wyanet and other places
along the line. The damage was the
greatest near Tiekllwa where the track
was washed out about the same distance
that it was a day or two ago. Up to 3
o'clock this afternoon no train had passed
west through the city since last night at 1
o'c'ock. No. 6 goiag east this morning
was sent down on the "Q"from Port By
ron Junction and went into Chicago over
the main line of that road. The other
three east-bound trains are going in
over their own line as it is expected that
the road will all be open again this eve
ning. The Fifth avenue sewer has become
clogged up during the past few days and
last night's rain overflowed it so that the
water is standing in great puddles all
over the low ground at Seventeenth street
and Fifth avenue. Workmen tried to
flush the sewer this morning, but with
little success. A little water is running
through the sewer, but not a pre at deal.

A Mntiiared Bsdy Found in the River
at Daves part That Causes a Sensa
tion. The body of an unknown man was
found lodged against a raft in the river
near the Licdsay mill in Davenport on
Wednesday morning. The body was re
moved to Halligan's undertaking rooms,
where an inquest was held at which it
was revealed beyond a doubt that the
man had been murdered and thrown into
the river. His neck and nose were found
to have been broken and a bullet had en
tered the back of his head and come out
the left eye.carrying the latter with it. His
skull was also fractured and his head ter
ribly bruised, showing conclusively that
he had been brutally murdered. Nothing
was found on the body that would lead
to its identity. A clue to it, he wever, may
be had in the letters "H. N. H. or H. U.
H." that mark the lapel of his shirt, the
middle letter not being clearly defined.
An effort is being made to have the body
