dor From the Adjutant (ieueral.
An important ordrhis been issued
from the office of the adjutant general of
the state which will be read with interest
by all members of the state militia, and
particularly by the boys of the Sixth reg
iment, to which Corop my A. the Rodman
Rifles, belongs. The order reorganizes
tbe Llinois National Guard by making it
composed of three instead of two brig
ades, and Col. William Clendenin, of Mo
line, commander of the Sixth Infantry, is
appointed coanmanderof the new brigade
with the rank of brigadier general. Tbe
brigade will consist of the Third and
Sixth Infantry and Troop B, of Eleom
it;;ton. The firat brigade consists of the
First and Second Intacry. Battery D. of
Chicago, and Troop A. of Chicago, Gen
eral diaries' Fiiziin.ou?, commander.
The second hrigade co isists of the Fourth

The d'vision of the state militia into
three brigades ha9 bci n under discussion
for some time. The first attempt at a
b.-ijjaoe encampment in 1891 showed
t'mt the grounds wen: not large enough
to accommodate th-ee regiments, but
thit two would have room. The pres
ent organization of tl.ree brigades is un
doubtedly tbe best thing that could be
done for the militia, end the appointment
of Col. Clendenin to command the Third
brigade is just what rught to have been

Gen. Cieudenin eatered the Illinois
National Guard Aug. 21, 1877. as 2d
lieutenant of the com pany organised by
layman uregory. rne company was
temporarily attached to the Fourth in
iantry, nut in September became a part
or me r ourreei.m battalion. Jan. 4,
1878, Lieut. Ciendenin was promoted to
the 1st lieutenancy, and Nov. 27th the
same year he became captain of the com
pany. May 30, 1879, he was elected
msjor of the Sixth regiment. July 10,
1830, he whs again promoted to tbe lieu-
tenant colonelcy, and May 17, 1882, he
was elected colonel, t position to which
he has been twice rejected. Ee has al
ways been a popular man in the regiment,
as bis continued promotion and his third
election to the colcnrlcy shows. The
regiment, in his 10 Years' command of
it, has been brought to a high degrte of
efficiency by his work and that of the
other officers of the regiment. There
has been infused it to tiie regiment a
sfirit that hs made every man in is want
to mnke it the best in the state.
This promotion will probably make
Lieut. Colonel D. Jt-cfc Foster colonel,
and Msj. Kittilson lieu'.entant colonel.
Both are popular in the regiment, and
there will probably be no opposition to
their promotion. Capt. Blanchard, of
Ottawa, is tbe senior captain.

THE ARGUb, FRIDAY
AROUND A SHAFT.
r,rUo Experience of m Young Kan In
A mo:t singular and remarkable acd
aent occurred in Davenport the other
afternoon. The scene of the affair was
Lehrklnd's brewery in the west end and
the victim was Charles Faulkner, son of
Capt. Faulkner of the police force.
Young Faulkner was helping to pack
ice in the shed and was at the time of the
accident, standing near the hoisting ma
chinety, which, when in motion, runs at
a highspeed. His clothes being wet he
happened to touch the large pulley while
In action, to which his clothes quickly
froze, and in an instant he was whirling
around and around. With almost super
human presence of mind he succeeded in
holding his head in such a position as to
prevent it coming in contact with any
thing. He was unable, however, to look
ut for his head and feet too, and while
he guarded his head the force with which
he was 40 liines hurled around, beat the
heels off of a brand new pair of heavy
shoes. The machinery was stopped as
quickly as human (C irts possibly could,
but not any to soon for young Faulk
ner, for the s r lie, saock uiiJ excitement
had by thit time almost used him up.
He was n moved fr m his p r.lous po
sition, but upon ex imitation tie was
found in beUer condition than the boys
with whom he was working bad reason
to h ipe for. Fortunately for him he
was badly bruised, but no bones were

in a f ir way to recovery.
During lhe schkoii young Faulkner is
employed in the rier business in the em
ploy of the government, while its the win

again be seen on tbe streets.
The Packet Season Prospeota.
The river men, of course, have little to
do at present but fiad congenial company
and indulge in yarns and prophecies
The Hannibal Courier reporter has at
tended one of these gatherings and
springs the following:
It is a grave question just what tbe
Diamond Jo line will do next year. There
is strong talk that the Eagle company will
purcnase tlie line, but it is nothing more
than talk so far. E. M. Dickey, who had
so much to do with making the line a
success, is now in Chicago, and he, as
well as Capt. Killeen, have about all thty
can attend to without devoting any part
of their time to the river business, conse
quently it is not improbable that they
would be clad to have an opportunity to
abandon the river business.
If the Diamond Joe is to remain in the
river it needs about two more boats of
light craft and as fast as possible. The
Sidney is all right, as well as the Gem
City, but the Pittsburg is too heavy and
draws too much water to do much good
when the water is as low as in recent
years. The steamer St. Paul, which is
now on the market, would be an advan
tageous purchase for tbe Diamond Jo for
the through trade, and the fact that the
Diamond Jo people would be glad to
abandon the river if it could be done
without too great loss.
A Creditable Publication.
The Muscatine News-Tiibune issued a
40-page illustrated edition yesterday
morning devoted to Muscatine's interests
and advantages, which is in the highest
sense a credit to tbe publishers and more
particularly to Joseph G. Van Lent, up
on whom the editorial management of the
paper devolves. Tbe special issue alluded
to is a review ef the events of the city
during tbe past year, taking ud the trade,
manufacturing and building, etc , under
different heads and treating each subject
exhaustively and in an exceedingly read
able manner. The issue is metropolitan,
complete and entertaining, and the peo
ple of Muscatine should be proud of it. as
they doubtless are.
