An Appeal for Small Contribution From
the Mangel Which Will Meet With Gener
ous Response no Doubt A Party That
Hum no Carnegie to Ala It, but Will N'ot
.Suffer on That Asrount, for the People
Are With It.
The Uuion of tiiis mTiiing devotes a
column nod a half to Congressman Ben
T. Cable, whose active and successful
work as member of the democratic na
tional committee has attract, d attention
all over the country and won the admira
tion of pny workers on all aides The
chief objct of the Union's extended
notice is to publish a communication
sent out by Mr. Cnble to the representa
tive democrats of the state, speaking in
congratulatory terms of the outlook in
Illinois t-o fur, and solicit. tier funds of $5
each for the purpose of defraying the ex
ptnses -f polling tbe 9tate. The letter
which tin- Union objects so strongly to is
appended in full:
Chicago. Oct. '29 Dear Sir: For the
J nrt.ime in many years the democracy of
the west and northwest approach the
close of a presidential contest with wsll
founded hopes of victory all along the
in. Our friends in Wisconsin assure us
that withtbem it is only a question of
mnjoriiy. From Minnesota aud Iowa ad
vices indicate the success of the electoral
tickets and the gaining of legislatures,
giving us hope of winning new seats in
the United Stales ten ate in the near fu
ture. In Illinois tbe polling of counties re
veals gains that justify tiie most conserv
ative democrat in believing that at last
tbe state is to be taken from the re'
publican column. Thus far this commit
lee has carried on tbe work by means of
a fui d contributed by a few men. We
have pressing need for more money to be
used in completing tbe work we have
laid out. Our money has been ex
pended for literature and speakers. The
demand is still great, and we believe that
every democrat who is able should re
spond with his mite for the fund needed
This is not an appeal for large sums
We ask each man who can con
tribute 5 or more for the
national committee to forward
it once to the undersigned, re
prefeuiing tbe committte in the west.
Some of tbe most gratifying incidents of
he campnign have been the voluntary
comnbuiious of small eutna by earnest
democrats who have felt encouraged by
the work that has been done. May I ask
of you a prompt response to this appeal
By our mites and the force of the truths
we proclaim we believe it possible to
break the rule of monopol y . Democrats
who come to our aid in this emergency
wrl be more than repaid for their sacri
flees in the celebration of a victory se
cured through their efforts.
"A copy of the above," the Union
wi-h glee says in its comments, "may be
seen at the Union office," notwith
standing that it asserts that copies were
received only by the saloonkeepers of
Hock Island. Despite the fact that the
Union has done Mr. Cable tbe kindness
to contribute to the circulation of this
letter, even to inviting the public to
visit its office and see it, the same has re
ceived pretty general circulation. There
are very few democrats, no doubt, who
have not received copies and are liberally
responding, and those who have not
been appealed to in person should not be
offended, but act just as cheerfully. No
campaign can be conducted without
funds. Everybody with common ser.se
knows that. Mr. Cabie's methods of ap-
pealing to the masses of tbe party is a
splendid one and will be attended by
Democrats should remember, as they
doubtless will, that their party lias no
Cnrnegie mill'ion ddlar contributions
such as II. C. Frick his just communi
cated with his foreign boss for to go into
the republican csmpa:gn fund, along with
that of the Goulds, the Dupews and the
otber millionaires who owe their wealth
to the republican party The democratic
party is the party of the masses. The
masses aie democrats. The democratic
masses will see that they are not defeated
through the million dollar contributions
of Carnegie etal.
The A kg us in behalf of tbe masses
again thanks the Union for its obliging
spirit in publishing Mr. Cable's commu
nication. felled the Korkford.
J. A. Munro, better known as "Brick"
Munro, is out with a suit against
the Rockford Construction company to
recompense him for an enforced lay off
that he took this summer. He alleges
that the company, while engaged in pav
ing Brady street. Davenport, placed a
pile of rock about two feet deep by 60
long and 14 wide, on the south side
Xigbth street between Brady and Main.
July 24 Munro started to drive his back
through the street at about 10 p. m.
drove onto the pile of rocks and was
tipped into the street. He alleges that
a portion of his hack was dragged or run
over bis right foot and ankle, resulting
In an injury that rendered him unable to
work for six weeks. The hack was roc
eiderab'.y damaged, and he wants $1,000
to square accounts.
Capt. W. L. Marshall Details tbe Work
Done In September on the. Great Water
way. Capt. W. L Mirsb-dl, in a report to
tbe war department, details operations
during September. 1893. on the Henne
pin canal project as follows:
. At tbe uortrt shore abutment 65 yards
of Stone Wt re broken, 40 yards of sand
were taken fro.u luc river in skiffs, and
800 barrels ot cem -h v.tre huled from
the railroad. . An L autmect, with arms
40 and 20 feet respectively, was formed in
four sections. At the abutment on the north
shore of Carr's Island the forms were
built, filled with concrete and partially
remoyed. ' At the abutment on tbe south
shore of Cart's Island, a cofferdam was
built, and tbe foundation excavated ard
leveled with Concrete. About three
quarters of tbe levee connecting those
abutments has been built. At guard lock
tbe earth has been practically all excav
ated, ci ft.'rdams built, and an engine set
for pumping. About two acres have
been stripped of sod on the Johnson
tract, and 3.500 yards excavated and
placed in the Milan embank
ment. On the three miles of
canal trunk a large amount of work has
been done in the way of clearing, grub
bing, stripping, digging base ditches and
about 900 feet of trunk nearly completed.
At lock 36 about 1,500 y ards h'ave been
excavated, engine and Dump taken to
site, and three carloads of cement hauled
to a storehouse. At lock 37 on.v little
progress has been made. During the
present month it is proposed to complete
the levee on Carr's Island, and to con
tinue the work on tbe Milan embanks
Up to June 30. 1893, the amount ex
pended on this project was $36 990 97.
Balance unexpended at end of fipcnl year.
$463,795 99. which with $500 000 v
propriated by the act of July 13. 1892.
made a total balance available of $963 -795.99.
At tbe time of the adoption of
the present rroj.ct no work had been
done other tbau makicg preliminary sur
veys and reports. Work tince
that time has been confined to
making additional necessary surveys
near the tbe mouth of Kock river
and to the commencement of condemna
tion proceedings to secure tbe right of
way for the canal over the five miles im
mediately above tbe mouth of Rock
river. These proceedings have been
completed, lands condemned and tbe
sums awarded by the court to the owners
of the pieces of land needed, approved
and p-jid. It is estimated thit 'he total
cost of the work will be $6,925,960
BROUGHT TO TIME.
A IMvorretl Wife and Her Paramour Mar
ried This Morning Through the Strategy
of the Former's Husband.
At police headquarters last night, a
rather pleasant appearing young woman,
with a little girl perhaps 7 or 8 years of
age, was detained on tbe charge of adul
tery, her companion in crime, one Elmer
Johnson, being also in custody. Tbe
pair came to this city from Keokuk some
time ago, and although not legally man
and wife, have been living as such. All
went well until yesterday, when P. P.
Johnson, of Alena, Iowa, arriyt d in the
city and after locating the pair had
them arrested on the charge as above
stated. The woman, who gave her
name as Mrs. Agnes Johnson, was for
merly the wife of Mr. Johnson, who
makes the complaint. She secured a
divorce from her husband, who is quite
well to do, and obtained the custody of
the child and also alimony.
Not long ago Elmer Johnson, a nephew
of tbe complainant, came to this city and
tijred a place at the plow shops, work
ing at his trade that of a painter.
When tbe young man's uncle learned of
the whereabouts of bis divorced wife and
his nephew be immediately came to Rock
Island with the result stated. A confer
ence was held between the parties last
night and it was 6nally agreed that if the
pair would take out a marriage license
today aud be married that all crimiml
proceedings would be dropped. The
elder Johnson must certainly have credit
for working tbe case about right, as in
this way he gets rid of the lien that his
divorced wife had on his property.
Magistrate Wiviil tif d the nuptial knot in
the office of the chief of p-.lice this morn
ing and all parties seemed to be satisfied.
No flowery rhetoric can tell the fcnerit

Four of the employes of Rock Island

J.C.Kinney escaped with a few sprains
and Sergeant William Schmalzreid wag
also bruised about -the body and head.
Corporal Glaraton, who was driving, es
caped uninjured, he having held on to
the reins. Considering tbe suddenness
of the accident, it was a lucky escape of,
TbeEclipsear-d Verne Swain came down
and the F. C. A. Dendmann, Pilot and
Dan Thayer passed np.
The etage of water at Rock Island
bridge at noon today was 1.80, and tbe
temperature was 48.
