one. Three vears ajjo a viniii' man

irustana collejri' at Rock Island,
preached scoral months as a supply
here for t he first Lutheran church
and lv his eloquence ami winninp;
address succeeded in ijainin"; a
strong hold on many of the
congregation. Meanwhile rumors
that he was licentious jot into circu
lation and dually became so serious
that he was released from the First
Lutheran church pulpit. The trou
ble culminated in his arrest, the war
rant. ( harini; him with the paternity
of the child of a former domestic of
Au;ustana college. He insisted on
his innocence, a part of the First Lu
theran coiiofeirat ion and others ral-i
lied around him. and with these as a
nucleus he organized the Elim Free
Lutheran chinch. His accusers he
caused to be arraigned before the
l inted States district court at 1'eoria
on a charfre of libel, but they
pleaded just itii'at ion and on proof
were sustained. The Elim con
gregation still adhered to him and
went so far as to attempt to build an
edifice far bevond their means, and
for the last two years in a half-lin-islied
condition. Nybladh united
three other preachers with him and
thev formed the Free Lutheran
church of America, electinj; him
bishop. They next proposed start
in"" a college here and did organize
on"a small scale. The last year Un
church has been in such financial
straits that it became necessary to
seek aid from some other denomina
tion. The efforts culminated in Un
practical admission of the eon;rera
tion by the late convention of the
diocese of Quincv at Peoria. It is
understood thatN'vbladh is to retire.

engaged E. A. Wounds to mov.! it to

MolineV Kurly History.
William .Jackson has received from
the committee on arrangements for
Moline's semi-centennial celebration,
June (. an invitation to deliver an
address at that time on the '-Early
Growth and History of Moline." Mr.
Jackson is as well qualified to speak
on this topic, perhaps, as any man
in Rock Island county. When he ar
rived in this part of the country, Mo
line was but ! years old. It was in
the vcar 1S"j2 that Mr. Jackson lo
cated there, and for the succeeding
It) vears he worked steadily in the
John Deere plow works, during
which time he drilled every hole
made in all the plows manufactured
at the shops there. So that when he
left the factory to study law he had
acquired a practical knowledge of
that which has made Moline famous
plow making, and he is thorough
ly familiar with the events that have
attended the growth of that city, as
well as Rock Island.
