Matters of Interest Before the
lTnppular Mare la Wrtvlnax Oat ferry
At yesterday afternoon's session of the
board of supervisors, the road and bridge
committee reported adversely on the
matter of allowing aid to Black Hawk
and Coal Valley for building bridges, etc.
The ferry franchise question then tfame
up for discusaion. as the committee corns
posed of Supervisors Ford, Woodburn
and Peterson recommended that the li
cense granted to S. N. Stewart ba re
voked on the grounds that he had not
complied with the law in maintaining a
ferry capable hf carrying horses and ve
hicles. W. n. Gett appeared for the
Rnck Island-Davenport Ferry Co. Mr.
Stewart spoke in hi) own behalf. After
a lengthy di-cussio.i Supervisor Schneider
moved that the ret ommendation of the
committee be adopted, the following be
ing the vote:
Ayes Case. Ford, Frick. Lamont,
Peterson. Schneider SiDnet, Schoon
maker, Tiiurington, Vinton, Weather
head, Woodburn. 13.
Noes Forsyth, Hanna. Hasson, Nay-
lor, topickier, Trent. Wilson. 7. Car
No matter what the reasons prompt
ing the board's action, whether in the in
terestsof safety or otherwise, it was
not a popular one, coming as it did at
the solicitation of the old ft rry company
and its attorney . The moment any cor
poration seeks to bar out competition
through legislative channels, that mo
ment it assumes a monopolistic tendency
It was this same attitude that the ferry
company adopted with reference to the
bridge railway before the council; it is
the same attitude that it has observed as
regards electric cars over the bridges
It wants all there is in the traffic between
the two cities, notwithstanding that it
has been fattening off it for years.
The Akous has no attacks to make on
the old ferry as a carrying institution
It is probably the best ferry boat on the
river, and it may be recalled that when
Cpt. Stewart appeared before the Im
provement association a few years ago in
the interests of bis pontoon bridge
scheme and unwarrantably attacked the
ferry company, this paper was quick to
come to the defense of the ferry. The
A rocs has tever failed to uphold corpor
ations that are a benefit to the
city. but when one of them
seeks to deprive other corporations of a
chance to live, the corporation so en
dt-avoring takes upon itself a defenseless
position. We say, therefore, that the
board of supervisors did not adopt a po
sition calculated to meet with public ap
probation when it not only recalled its
license to CapU Stewart's ferry boats, but
refused to grant one to another compe
titor of the long-existing Rock Island &
Davenport Ferry company.

At 3:30 the delegates enoyed a de

Today's dispatches to the Chicago pa
pers print a sensational account of the
disappearance of C. A. White of Chey
eune, Wyo.. who about 13 months ago
was married to Mrs. Jane Nagle widow
of the late Erastus Nagle, of that place,
and daughter of the late Henry Hous
man of this city. It is said that after
marrying the lady, White, who claimed
to be American manager for the London
Illustrated News, has ran things pretty
much his own way, and has been very
lavish in his expenditures of money.
About a week ago it is claimed, that by a
power of attorney he mortgaged all bis
wife's property for $75,000. and de
camped with the proceeds. .
Not a Flattering Reception
The Republican ContremlODil eplr
ant'aTallt, ana theTarnoat la
Hi Honor JLast Kiahf .
The republican city committee sort of
fell down in arranging for Col. Marsh's
reception last night. A martial band
was the best that was done in the way of
music, and the carriage repository oppo
site 8pencer Square was the inviting
plsce that he was ushered into by the
Flambeaux, who got out and circled
around town to keep up appearances.
The meeting was characterized by the
small attendance, a large portion being
democrats who came to get a look at the
candidate for congress.
The meeting was called to order by
Robert Lynn, who asked W. H. Gest, C.
J. Searle, Judge Searle to take seats on
the platform. Col. Marsh was then in
troduced, and although he started out to
talk but a few minutes, it took him over
an hour to finish his brief remarks. He
told the oft told tale of the glories of re
publicanism, and in accents
loud and long proclaimed that
the democrats didn't know
progression from retrogression. He
described from a republican standpoint
the benefits of protection and the beau
ties of reciprocity, speaking also of the
currency question. While dwelling on
the latter question he spoke of wildcat
currency, when a voice in the audience
that was choking with indignation and
beer responded. "Yes, I've had dollars go
down on me to 40 cents in Buchanan's
time." This seamed to please the
speaker and more so when he mentioned
the name of Lincoln the same voice re
plied, "Bless bis old name." The colonel
was visibly affected by these touching
remarks and a moment later he men
tioned taxation, when the same husky
voice replied, "I wish they'd take it off
whiskey," which ended the colloquy, as
the speaker turned his attention to other
parts of the room. Oa the whole the
affair was a very tame one. and it took a
mighty tffjrt on the part cf the colonel
to arouse even a ripple of enthusiasm.
When he finished it was too late for
other speakers and the meeting ad
journed. OTHER REPUBLICAN MEETINGS.

Wrddrd laac Evening.
A very happy home wedding occurred
at 230 Thirteenth street at 8 o'clock last
evening, it being the uniting in holy
bonds the lives of George V. Messplaj, of
Galesburg, and Miss Eya Rice, of this
city, the ceremony being performed at
the home of the bride's mother by Rev.
T. W. Grafton. After the ceremony a
brief season of congratulations followed,
which was followed by a bounteous wed
ding spread being served. The groom is
a well known and popular electrician of
Galesburg, and the bride a most estimable
found lady of this city, and they were
the recipients of a large number of beau
tiful presents, indicative of the high es
teem in which they are held. They

things lively on Third avenue for a few
minutes shortly after noon today. The
horse broke away from the corner of
Twentieth street, whire he was hitched,
and dashed west to the Y. M. C. A.
building, making a bolt for that institu
tion, but changing bis m!nd and turning
down Nineteenth street, was caught in
the middle of the block between Fourth
and Fifth avenue. The buggy was con
siderably damiged, but other than being
skinned somewhat about the legs the
horse was not seriously injured.
