A somewhat novel, yet altogether
:i rather serious accident, occurred
on the Union line branch of the street
railw ay company's system at 8:30 yes
terday afternoon. Motor car 43 was
coming down Thirty-eighth street
toward Moline avenue at a pretty
good rate, when about in the" middle
of the block, the lrake beam broke,
and Motormati Clark to his amaze
ment found that he had no control of
his car, which was gaining in speed
at every revolution. For an instant
the raotorman lost his wits and by
the time he got them back again his
ear had shot across Moline avenue
and into the ear accountant's shelter
at the foot of the street in the I'.. II.
I. & P. yards. Car Clerk Devine and
K. Kieller. who were in the house at
the time, saw through the window j
the motor cominjr dircctlv toward
them, but before they could reach the
door it was upon them, the shantv
being tipped over and the stove
thrown against the door, so that es
cape was impossible until things
could be righted. Kverything was
topsyturvy and when Clerk Devine
got outside to survey his surround
ings he found his quarters were
moved down unceremoniously onto
the east hound main track of the
Hock Island road, and it was fortu
nate, indeed, that a train did not
happen to be pulling out at that par
The nioter car carried a good load
of passengers, mostly ladies, and
naturally considerable alarm was
felt, although the accident was over
ami the danger passed, before any
one fully realized the peril. The car
was in charge of Motormeu Clark and
Conductor Arnell and the motorman
notwithstanding the danger he risked
deserves credit for having stood to
his post until the car stopped. The
front wheels of the car struck the
eurbinsj on the north side of the ave
nue cutting their way as prettily as
if it had been snow instead of stone.
The car was not greatly damaged. the
hood and dash being somewhat disfig
urcdwhich with the brakebcam will
be all the harm done. The car will be
taken to Davenport for repairs and
repainting at once. The total dam
ages resulting from the accident will
not exceed 3.".

THE NEW TORPEDO BOAT. TELEGRAPH POLES TAX
The Clty-TownHhip Commlttoe Meeting.
There was a largely attended meet
ing of the city-township committee
and democrats generally, at Turner
hall last night and much enthusiasm
was manifested. Chairman Wheelan
presided. If the city campaign is as
enthusiastic throughout as the first
meeting, which was held last night,
democracy will score a sweeping vic
tory this spring. It was decided to
hold the ward primaries on Wednes
day evening, March 15. and the city
township convention on Thursday
evening. March 16, at Turner hall.
The basis of representation will be
one delegate for every 25 votes or
major portion thereof, which will be
based upon the vote for Cleveland at
the last election. Other matters of
imKrtance were discussed and at
tended to. the meeting being one of
the most interesting held in a long
After the business had been trans
acted remarks were made by J. W.
Welch and others upon the situation.
An aggressive spirit, such as will un
doubtedly characterize the campaign
was shown in the selection of a date
two days previous to the republican
convention, showing that it is pro
posed not to be guided by the action
of that body in selecting candidates.

The One K,'iusr ISnilt at Dubuque "ertng
Completion Oes, riptlon.
Not long before the opening of
navigation this spring, people living
in cities along the river will have an
opportunity of seeing some interest
ing craft pass by here on their way
to the gulf. Reference is made to
the government boats now being
built at Dubuque. As the days
lengthen and mercury seems more in
clined to st iy up within reasonable
limits the work on the government
boats progresses to a degree far more
perceptible than for some time back.
says the Dubuque Times:
The indom is now receiving the
attention of a large force of men and
preparations are being made for set
ting her up just east of the torpedo
boat on the banks of the ice harbor.
Her frames are being bent into shape
and will be ready as soon as needed.
She will, as appears from the draw
ings, be a trim little vessel.
The work on the machinery for the
torpt'do boat is fast drawing
toward Completion and they are re
markable pieces of machinery. The
cylinders have just been given extra
ordinary tests and have been found
absolutely perfect, and as there are
so many in this twin quadruple ex
pansion combination when they are
all pronounced perfect the balance
of the machinery may be taken as
correct. Kvery piece has been criti
cally inspected, the working parts
properly tempered and made accord
ing to positive plans and orders fur
nished by the government. With the
finishing of the crank shafts the ma
chinery will be quite ready to be
placed on board.
Work on the boat is now of that
kind which is denominated finishing
the lining up of the stern pipes for
the shaft ing. furnishing quarters, etc.,
and before many weeks the little
beauty will slide out into the water.
The I.l-it of Those I'roposml From Which
the Vuterx may llok Their Winner.
The democrats all over the citv are
bringing forth their aldermanic can
didates, and in every ward strong and
capable men are being talked of for
the nominations which are to be
made next Wednesday night.
In the First ward William Kot h is be
ing discussed with much enthusiasm
and is very apt to be nominated.
In the Second ward Charles Dur-
niann. Sewall Dodge and E. D. Mc
Cartney have been proposed.
In the Third the democrats are
talking up Aid. Dan Corken, Rasil
Winter and John Slroehle.
In the Fourth ward A. D. Huesing

E. D. Kreiter. representing the
George It. Dickinson Paper 'ompany
of St. Louis, was in the city yester
day calling on his trade. Kreiter is
one of those individuals who pos
sesses the happy faculty of shedding
sunshine all about w herever his foot
steps are turned. He is naturally a
picturesque personality with a face
that would be the envy of Adonis and
which, when in conversation, is con
stantly illuminated by a smile that is
simply heavenly: a poem in itself.
The house which Kreiter travels for
is in St. Louis, but his home is in
Chicago, and the two cities have been
at sword's points on frequent occa
sions on the matter of claiming his
citizenship. He never leaves either
city without taking a train. and w hen
on'tlie road puts up at the hotels.
Out in Iowa they call him Hoke
Smith, and Kreiter is proud of the
suggestion, for he is the ideal of
voitn" and vigorous manhood. He
comes fo Rock Island once in 60 days
and never fails to draw his salary.

The l"nitel states Supreme Court Ken
i!cr!i an Important Decision.
The United States supreme court
ha just handed down a decision that
is likely to be of interest in every
city in the country.
In IS1") the city of St. Louis passed
an ordinance taxing the Western
Union Telegraph company $5 a pole
on each pole it had in use inside the
corporation limits. The company
paid no attention to the ordinance.
Subsequently the city sued to recov
er some $20,000 in delinquent taxes
under those unpaid levies. The com
pany defended and carried the case
to the top. The highest tribunal in
the land decides that the lew is legal
and correct and that the company
must pay it.
Sweeping iu Its Effect.
The supreme court holds, in an
opinion given by Judge Brewer, that
the per pole was evidently a
license tax, for it was not laid on the
basis of the business done. It holds
that it was. in realty a rental charged
for the use of the public streets, and
that the city had as much right to
charge such rental as for use of a
room in the city hall. There is
nothing in the charter of the com
pany exempting it from taxation
on the ground that the public street s
are post routes. The court did not
pass upon the question as to the rea
sonableness of the rate charged, the
case coming before it in advance of
any investigation of this point by the
lower court. Justice Brown dissented,
basing his dissent on the ground
that the tax of per pole amounted
to 4 t per cent, of the returned valua
tion of the company's St. Louis prop
erty and was unreasonable.
I niteit for Life.
At 7 o'clock last night at the home
of the bride's father, B. II. Redeker,
of South Rock Island, occurred the
marriage of Miss Christine Redeker
to William Emig. of Topeka, Kas.,
Rev. Charles Emig. of Brighton, Kas.,
officiating, assisted by Rev. J. C.
Rapp. of the German Methodist
church, of this city. Only a few
friends witnessed the ceremony and
afterward joined in a fitting celebra
tion of the event. The bride is well
known to a large circle of friends, by
whom she is held in high esteem.
The groom was formerly a resident
of South Rock Island. The happy
couple after a short wedding tour
will make their home at lopeka,

The Milan Canning Co. has pur
chased three acres of ground of Sears
Bros., located on the river just west
of the National Clay Co's. plant in
South Rock Island, and will move its
plant there. It is understood that
the Messrs. Sears have become inter
ested in the canning company and
with the additional shipping facil
ities the business will have a new im
petus. Since the location has been
changed it might not be a bad idea
for the company to make a fresh bid
for fame bv substituting the words
Rock Island for Milan.

The Moline Malleable Iron works

mination, is a great surprise to the
people of Moline. as the company

grets Moline's loss, as it removes: a
valuable industry from this community.
