The old settler of Moline who has

Republican-Journal gives the follow
ing narrative that is Avell worthy of
Early in the summer of 1812 the
government fitted out Major Camp
bell with a large keel boat, a small
one and a barge loaded with ammu
nition and provisions for 60 men, and
sent Uiem up the rirer to reinforce
Prairie du Chien. They started from
St. Louis early in the season and
when they got above the mouth of
Rock river they met old Hlack Hawk
and treated with him, giving him
some flour and other provisions.
The next day, when one of the boats
reached Campbell's island and the
other, boat and the barge were half
a mile below them, they stopped for
breakfast, and while there Hlack
Hawk's forces came ami fired on
them, killing some of the men. The
men in the big keel along-side of the
island, on hearing the guns, dropped
down to reinforce the others, and
about the time they got there Maj.
Campbell had got his men into the
keel and shoved out into the river.
The wind was blowing very hard and
the big keel cast anchor, but the
boat blew ashore so that they could
not step over from the boat onto the
band. As quick as Campbell's forces
left, the Indians began to rob the
barge, anil when they had got all out
of it they set it afire and burned it
to the water's edge. Hy this time
the other keel boat, with IX men on
it, commenced liring on the Indians.
Three men were killed inside of the
keel boat, living 15 men on board.
In the afternoon an Indian sneaked
up and stuck his head in a port hole
to see how many men there wen:
Killed the Indian.
A man inside shot the Indian and
killed him. If the Indian had got
away the men in the boat would
never have escaped. At sundown
the wind died down and they pushed
the boat out into the river. The In
dians fired at them as long as they
could. Next day they went down to
a sandbar and buried those three
men who were killed. I got this in
formation from a man named Smith,
who fought the Indians in that keel
boat at t hat time.
When I came here in 1"2!) the
wreck of the big boat was plain to be
seen. Two men named Smith pulled
it up on the bank and get enough
lumber out of it to floor two houses.
A short time after this defeat of
Campbell's, General Taylor was
started up the river with supplies
and reinforcements for Prairie du
Chien. When they got up about the
mouth of Rock river the Hritish had
brought down two pieces of cannon
and lired on (Jen. Tavlor and drove
him back. That was the reason that
Prairie du Chien had to surrender to
the Hritish. Rkn.i. Goki.k.

Conferring AVith Officials.
A conference with railroad officials
and switchmen was held at the Kim
ball house at Davenport Tuesday
night. It was attended by Assistant
General Manager Allen, Superintend
ent Ewing. of the Illinois division.
General Yardmaster Swan. Day
Yardmaster McQuade, of Rock Isl
and, and a delegation of switchmen.
The general theme under discus
sion was the dismissal of employes
due to the enforcement of the rules
against drinking while on duty.
Some of the meu avIio haA-e been let
out have made application for rein
statement, while others have asked
for the evidence on which they were
Lismissed. As stated before the
men view dismissals in the light
of au attack on their union, but the
officials declare that it is done in ac
cordance with business principles
and in the general interest of the
road. Since the enforcement of this
rule has been begun here, 15 em
ployes have been let out and they
make the allegation that their places
have not been filled by total ab
stainers. The conference resulted in no defi
nite conclusion beyond the fact that
the men who were discharged for
cause would not, be reinstated.
