This is the solution of The Altai's
prize word contest, and the first to
submit the correct sentence thus
composed was Miss Olga Rochow, of
800 Fourth avenue.
Tiik Rock Isl.m Ai:;rs has been
the medium through which a deserv
ing young laily receives a most valu
able prize, conisting of a $20'.) li
brary. Perhaps not hing of an edu
cational nature has been insti
tuted of recent years in this city that
has received such hearty support as
our "Seven Age" contest, in connec
tion with the World-Herald's Ency
Answers commenced to come in
immediately after Tuesday night's
paper, which left the press at 4:10,
made its apponrance. It is a pleas
ure to Tiik Altai's to see such an in
terest manifested by our young peo
ple in the cause of education, for the
boys and girls of today are to be the
readers of tomorrow.
The first correct answer to the
word contest was received at The
Altars otticc at exactly 4:55 p. m.,
Tuesday, the 30th. It was signed by
Olga Rochow, and read, "The boy
who seeks is father to the man who
speaks," this being the lirst answer
received, which was the same as the
one delivered to Supt. Kemble in
sealed envelope. We therefore an
nounce that Miss Olga Rochow is the
winner of the lirst prize, which con
sists of one complete set (25 volumes)
of the World-Herald's famous Ency
clopedia Rritannica and a bookcase
made expressly to hold it.
The Successful Young l aily.
A reporter found Miss Rochow at
her home, 300 Fourth avenue, and he
is pleased to state that she is a very
charming and pleasant young lady.
She was horn in Uavenport, and wa?
15 vears old last February. She has.
however, made Rock Island her honn
for the last five years. She attends
the High school, loth grade, and i:
in Mrs. Eastman's room. She grail
uated from school No. 1 last June
Her father is Mr. Carl Rochow, man
ajer of the Mill store. We can be
speak for Miss Rochow a bright fu
ture, as in addition to her excellent-
school advantages she will now have
in her home the greatest reference
library in the Knrli.-h laiiiniaire. to
which she can refer any time and s(
cure correct information relative to
anv subject which ninv come up in
her school studies.

The Closing of tht-MitlM'l La;range Case
The case of Mable LaGrange, on
trial for the murder of her infant
child, is still in hearing in the cir
cuit court. Ihe whole day yester
day was taken up in hearing the
opinions of medical experts in re
gard to different hypothetical propo
sitions submitted to them. At the
conclusion of the testimony of Dr. J.
W. Morgan, of Moline. Dr. Wessel,
also of Moline, and Drs. Rernhardi
and Craig, of this city, were called
and gave their expert opinions on
hypothetical questions submitted.
This done, the defense had presented
its case and this morning the prose
cution presented its rebuttal testi
mony. Ex-Chief of Police Miller and
Night Captain Kramer were put on
the stand and testified to the fact
that defendant had told them on the
night she was arrested that the doc
tor had nothing to do with the
drowning of the child. Harry Means,
Mrs. Jnlia Swinton and Henry Swin
ton were then placed upon the stand
again and questioned concerning the
defendant's actions as to sanity or
insanity, both before and after the
night of April 6.
Evidence All In.
The rebuttal tesiimony being all
in the arguments were "begun this
morning. State's Attorney Searle
opening for the prosecution M. M.
Sturgeon followed, making an able
speech in behalf of the defendant,
the case being eloquently closed for
the state by Mr. Searle.

The Rock Island Still Reaching Oat Rail
The Rock Island is about to add 34
miles of line in northern Iowa to its
system. Some time ago the people
of Jackson, Minn., went down to Des
Moines in a body and besought the
Rock Island to build from Ruthven,
la., to their town. The Milwaukee
then was the only road they had, and
they complained that it was not giv
ing them a square deal. They
wanted the Rock Island there to hold
the Milwaukee down. The result of
the conference was that the road and
the )co pie interested in its extension
fixed upon a mutual agreement
whereby the latter bear a considera
ble part of the expense of construc
tion, and the road take the line and
operate it. The territory is good,
and the shippers in this section
ought to lind it worth cultivating.
A Switchman Injured.
Thomas liurke, a switchman in
the C, R. I. & r. yards, got caught
while making a coupling, about 3
this morning, with the result that
his left forearm was mashed almost
to a pulp. Dr. Hummer was sent
for, and upon arrival, found that the
injuries were such that it would be
necessary to amputate a portion of
the member. The man was removed
to St. Anthony's hospital, where Drs.
Hummer and Hollowbush ampu
tated the arm about one-third the
distance from the elbow up. Hurke

Replying to a Misleading Statement on the
Part or the I'nion.
Rock Island, June 3. Editor Aii
Gi s: A rather misleading article in
this morning's Union has induced us
to make the following statement to
the general public in order to let
them see the real inwardness of the
case;. Frni the very beginning of
our existence as a union, we were
met by. some of the contractors in a
spirit of kindliness, which has con
tinued and for which we are grate
ful. Others again have met us with
antagonism, which we think has also
continued, even if it has been sleep
ing ever since the organization of
theC. "C. A. We have been expect
ing an attack of some kind, and if
this case had not arisen, (if it really
has arisen and not been manufact
ured) some other one would have
been made. We are confident had
the same thing happened to anv
other firm of the C. C. A. there would
not have been any trouble. They
would have simply said to Robinson":
"You have to do one of two things,
either act as a man of honor and be
reinstated, or quit mv employ, we
will not on your account raise any
disturbance.'1 Or, if Mr. Collins had
told our committee that lie preferred
Robinson to his union employes; we'
would have quietly withdrawn and
the matter have ended there. Mr.
Collins, however, saw fit to bring
the matter before the C. C. A., and
induced them, many of them against
their letter judgment, and not ex
pecting such consequences, but
merely to give him their moral sup
port, anil we do not doubt some of
them are really glad to involve
Collins alone against 16(5. By en
dorsing the resolution, however,
they left us no alternative but to
treat them all alike. Should any
member of the C. C. A. at any time
withdraw his name from said en
dorsement, his or their employes will
i go to work immediately. In regard
I to the last manifesto a" la Carnegie
about returning to work on or before
June 5. they may try their hand at
tilling this town with the scum and
the outcasts of our trade from the
large cities, if they wish and think
they will fill (he bill, and further
more to remember that a bobtail

There is yet no change in the sit
uation of the carpenters' lockout.
As Monday is the day set by the con
tractors as the limit for the men to
return to work, that day will deter
mine whether or not the lockout will
lie a protracted one.

at some length, and from what trans,

The general spread of the English lan
guage over the world has been resisted
most stubbornly on British soil at home.
The legislative assembly of Jersey re
jected, by a vote of 27 to 6, a bill to per
mit the use of English in the assembly
at the option of a member. This action
of course affirms the principle that
French is the official language. The
country parishes are resolutely opposed
to the introduction of English, although
it has made great progress in the towns
of late years, and it is said many of the
deputies are now unable to express
tnemselves correctly in French.
Mr. Gladstone's government has been
asked by Beveral Welsh members of par

number of Irish people who do not speak
English at all is still considerable, and

One of the saddest of ocean mysteries
was the fate of the 120 souls who sailed
from Philadelphia on Dec. 1, 1889, in the
ironclad Atlanta, or Triumfo, as she was

by the government of Hayti, and she
