The raft boat Thistle came within an
inch of colliding with the draw pier at
Rock Island bridge on her way down
with a raft of lumber this morning. Just
as the boat was shoving the raft through
the draw a guy line broke on the right
si !e and the boat swung around toward
the pier. The pilot with rare presence
of mind, however, ordered the cutting of
all the ropes holding the raft. This was
dine in a twinkling with axes, and the
boat quickly righted, and the pilot back
ing up got out of the way of the danger.
It was a lose C"M, and a number of peo
ple on board, including two ladies, were
thoroughly fripitened. The raft floated
helplessly witl he current, and became
fast on a sand ir near the Rock Island
shore, hut the Thistle finally got her off
and proceeded on down the river.
Tbe only i.minder of the famous
White C'litr lite in the good old days
whfn Diamond J Reynolds and Com
modore Davidson used to cut and slash
each other, is now to be seen on the Dan
Thayer. Her stacks still wear the white
chokers, and the old timers .on the river
still gazs at them reminiscently as they
draw into sight. The Dan Thayer is
still owned by the Davidson interest.

lulda Lorine formerly of Moline, died
in Davenport Sunday morning from the
effects of a dose of carbolic acid admin
istered by her own hand. The deed was
committed in her roo n up stairs over the
restaurant where she was employed. Her
sister who works in Rock Island, says
that she was ill Saturday and sent for
Hulda to stay with her all night. Hulda
called "Brick" Monroe a hackman, with
whom she was acquainted to take her
bock to Davenport. On the way. over
the river the two had a quarrel, but
whether this led her to take her life is not
known. Sunday morning someone
about tbe house called her, and failing to
get a response, the door of the room was
broken open. Physicians were hastily
summoned, but it was too late for medi
cal skill to be of any avail .
Hoodlnmm In thy ttallrry.
A source of much annoyance to pa
trons of Harper's theatre during the last
few performances, has been the noise
made by gallery gods in the way of
whistling and hooting, which has also
been carried into the stairways and hall
ways at the close of the entertainments.
Manager Montrose has labored in vain
to put a stop to this nuisance and so j
have tbe police, but he is determined to
succeed, and unless these little hoodlums
take warning they may wish they bad

At last night's meeting of the city
council the action taken instructing the
city clerk to advertise for bids for the Thir

reconsidered and it was then decided to
ask for private bids for the same work.
On motion of Aid. Corken the clerk was
instructed to ask for private bids for
painting the city bridge at Rock river.
In relation to theU. S. Engineer's of
fice of the Illinois and Mississipi canal,
asking for passage of government teams
over the bridges, on motion of Aid. Knox
it was decided to charge all parties with
Aid. Corken of the fire and light com
mittee, made a report relative to the in
crease in the salary of the fire depart
ment, the committee being unable to
come to any agreement. Tbe committee,
however, recommended that the old steam
engine be cleaned up and sold. It rec
ommends further thut another company
be stationed in the east end
and one also in the west end as soon as
possible, and the surplus engine
houses be offered for sale. Tbe report
was received and referred to the finance
and fire and light committees. Aid.
Corken moved that the chief of the fire
department be required to 6leep at the
Central engine house in order to be al
ways on hand, which was carried. This
action was commendable as the chief
should invariably be first on the ground
to handle a fire properly.
The ordinance committee with the city
attorney was then on motion of Aid.
Huesing instructed to prepare an ordi
nance for the p-iving of Fourth avenue
from First to Twentieth streets, and
Twenty-third to Twenty -fourth street

Third to Fifth avenue. These are to be

will be the best of its kind in the city.
An ordinance was also ordered drawn for

should include Seventeenth, which is if

A communication from V. M. Bland

clerk from John D. Cameron, of Chicago,
who is desirous of establishing a gas

and light. It asks for the privilege of
putting up the works and laying mains
