of Thursday morning's bomb throw-

perpetrators of the outrages the
Democrat of tins morning says:
What seems a plausi'ble tale was
told by John Schell. who lives on the
Iillnois bottoms opposite Muscatine.
He came to town today and said that
his brother-in-law carried three
strangers in his wagon across the
bottoms to Muscatine's high bridge
Wednesday night. They lt-rt him a
coat as security for their passage
money. Thursday afternoon and
evcningwhistlesaiid calls were heard
to proceed from a barn over in the
bottoms, now surrounded by water.
Toward midnight Thursday night
someone took three men out of that
barn in a skiff and landed them on
the drv road, whence they -struck di
rectly for the bluffs in Illinois. The
three men tally with the three explo
sions, and the circumstances all lit.
The story stands unproved.

Western Roads are Disappointed Other
That the much expected grand rush
to the World's Fair has disappointed
a great many railroad oflicials, partic
ularly those of the western roads
there can be no doubt. More than
one reason can be assigned for it,
however, but that does not compen
sate the companies for the additional
expense they have nearly all gone to
in making preparations. Just before
the fair there was not a road that
would let go of a bit of its passenger
rolling stock, though each was look
ing to add a little to its own. The
cold and wet weather has dampened
the enthusiasm of many prospective
visitors while others are waiting for
the completion of the fair itself.
The Kock Island did a big business
the lirst few days of the fair and it
even taxed its facilities there being
several extra trains from the west
each day. It did not last long, how
ever, and though the business is said
to be greatly in excess of that of last
year, it is not anywhere near what
most railroad men thought it would

wagon near Sixth street, but his foot
was caught in one of the wheels and
he was dragged and pounded along
the pavement and across the railroad
tracks at Fifth street, the frightened
animal running three blocks before

FOR MABEL LA GRANGE.
The Ladies Interested in the Case of the
The following has been submitted
to the Argus for publication:
Bock Island, May 13 The readers
of our city papers are all familiar
with the sad story of Mabel Ia Orange,
the voung girl confined in our county
jail awaiting trial upon the charge of
infanticide. A number of people in
our city, among them ladies of the
W. C. T. U., are very much interest
ed in her case, and anxious that it
shall be properly presented in the
courts, that judgment may not fall
too heavily upon her head.
They have no disposition to con
done crime, or defeat law and justice.
but they feel that there is at least a
reasonable doubt of her being guilty
of the crime charged, but even grant
ing this that there are many palliat
ing circumstances which should be
fully brought to light. She is not
yet 16 years of age; the surroundings
and influences ot ner me inns iar
have been far from fortunate; an evil
counsellor was at hand, and at the
time at which it is charged she com
mitted the crime, her- whole system
was in a diseasjd. fevered condition,
her brain confused from the linger
ing influences of drugs, and her men
tal condition altogether desperate
from the misery of her situation.
Surely it cannot be wrong if we al
low our hearts to grow tender to
ward this girl, slender and delicate
even for her years, who has made her
awful mistake so early in life. Had
she been a more hardened, experi
enced, or less friendless sinner, the
law would not now have its hold up
on her. "Man's inhumanity to man
makes countless thousands mourn."
Woman's inhumanity to woman is
proverbial. Shall we not in this case
contradict the proverbs, and both
men and w omen help to render it cer
tain, that justice shall be done this
child, w ho is herself so keenly alive
to the misery of her position?
An Appeal for Aid.
The cost of legal defense will be
$100, of which relatives have prom
ised $2.", while the W. C. T. U. have
guaranteed to raise the remainder.
Thev are anxious for your help in
this matter, and any sum which your
interest in this ease mav prompt you
to trive mav be left at the olliees of
the Aua s. Union or Kock Islander.

What are known as the Sangamon

Lumbermen along the tributaries
of the upper Mississippi claim that
the past winter's snowfall was the
heaviest know n for 20 years past, and
for this reason was an unfavorable
one for operators except where they
had extra easy chances, says the
Lumberman. The prospects for get
ting the logs out is good, as the
streams are full, although the cold
w ater is holding the ice in many places
and allowing the water to run over
it. The upper lakes will not be open
for a couple of weeks, unless there is
an exceptional change in the weath

Leech lake, anil others in that re
