Tbe Rock Island "civil service commis
sion" baa had its fi st aittinir, Ttie p
peistmer.t of a substitute mail carrier to
succeed John Johnson, resigned, was the
subjact under consideration and the out
come .f tbe deliberations was the selec
tion of George Montgomery, son of Alex
Montgomery, for the place. Of course
tbe qualifications of Mr. Montgomery
political and otherwise, for the position
were subjected to the most rigid investi
gation ou tbe part of Mr. Wells' board.
It is to be hoped Mr. Montgomery has not
given up a good j b to accept tbe tor org
conferred by the postoffice commission.
The A rots' reference to the new mail
wagoD was made yesterday upon the ad
vice of a gentleman who had seen it and
thereby spoke complimentary of tbe ap

observation to be sadly at fault in coiu
sarison with the wagons in use in the
larger cities. In fact it is painted black
where it should be white, and has. more
the appearance of a canvas covered

An up town family who are devoted

The Long; Distance Telephone Looks Like
People of the tri-cities who are oc
casionally put to it to keep their temper
when trying to talk across the river will
be interested in the following item from
the Chicago Post of Tuesday eveniBg:
Hellol Boston, how's tbe back bay
skating T" said Wendell Baker, address
ing his remarks to a receiver in the
Quincy street offices of the American
Telephone and Telegraph company this
afternoon There was a noisless
scamper of the invited guests present to
secure places near the instrument, and
Mr. B.ktr, a moment later, received the
reply over the long telephone wire that
stretches across the continent to tbe
Hub, "Fairly good. How about that
thaw in Chicago?" The instrument worked
to p rfection, and soon 20 receivers were
cut in, and the visitors were treated to a
rendition of "My Country, Tis of Thee,"
played on a cornet by a Boston soloist,
over 1.000 miles away. The tones,
even to the softest notes, could
be plainly heard. As the music ceased
the auditors in Chicago distinctly beard
the applause that was rendered the soloist
in Boston. A local soloist repeated tbe
stirring s lection for the delight of the
Bostonians. The feat of establishing
tt-lephouic coromunioa'ioa with New
Yotk, which was done several months
ago, was repeated with a few miles added
to the copper circuit A number of prom
inent citizens and members of the press
were present when the successful trial of
the Boston wire was made. Merchants
can use the line instead ot the telegraph.
