The lirst session of the Swedish
Lutheran Synod of North America
which meets here was opened in the
Swedish Lutheran church at Moline
last evening. There was a general
meeting of the delegates, after which
President Sward, of the Synod de
livered his opening address. It was
uite lengthy and interesting. This
morning the business session was
called to order in the College
chapel, and preparations wen- made
for the regular organization. A
great portion tf the morning was
consumed in the; reading of the pres.
ident's report, which gave results
that were highly gratifying. .The
only important business transacted
was thf election of a president of the
synod, J. P. Sward, whose home
is at Minneapolis, being reelected.
President Sward is one of the fore
most Swedish Lutherns in thel'nited

Frank Gofton was going down Race street
the other day at a 2:40 gait. At the corner
of Fifth street a small boy stopped him Aid
asked him to give him two nickels for a
dime. The good natured Frank complied
with the request. It was all the change he
had with him at the time. When he got
down near Fourth, he felt thirsty and went
in and called for a seltzer. Frank tendered
the dime in payment, when the man threw
it back, saving it was spurious. Luckily
he was acquainted, and he was told to make
it right next time. Cincinnati Enquirer.

Barn Ilurni The Loss.
An alarm turned in from box 14
shortly after 9 o'clock this morning,
brought out the iire department to
the residence of Joseph Rosenlield on
Third avenue and Eleventh street,
where the 2-story frame barn in
the rear facing Eleventh street, was
bfound in a mass of flames. Two
streams were put on and in a short
time the lire was under control, but
not before the barn was damaged to,
perhaps, the amount of $500. On
this there is an insurance of $500 in
the Phoenix, of Hartford, in-Buford's
agency. It so .happened that there
was no live stock in the barn at the
time of the iire. the buggies and
principal other articles down stairs
having been gotten out. There was,
however, some other goods, such as
storm doors, screens, etc., stored
there, which will amount to perhaps
$200, on which there was no insur
ance. Origin of the Fire.
Just how the barn caught is not
known. A cook stove was set up
down stairs where a girl was ironing.
She went into the house for some
thing.and on returning found the in
terior in flames. It probably caught
from a defective flue in the second
story, as the whole upper part was
in a blaze in no time. The barn be
longing to S. F. Cooke, just across the
alley from the Rosenlield structure,
also" caught, but was kept wet down
and the loss will not amount to $50,
which is also covered by insurance.
The department did good work, as
without it the lire would undoubted
ly have spread to adjoining buildings
which are thickly built there.
Two early morning alarms were re
sponded to", both of which were false.
The first one at 2:30 this morning
was sent in bv a police otlicer making
his report from box ;'i at Seventh
avenue and Twenty-third street. The
second alarm was at i'trJ.i and regis
tered in the waterworks from box 13
at Fifth street and Seventh avenue,
though it did not alarm the central
engine house at all. A rear spring
on the hook and ladder was broken
on the way to the tirsf down town
alarm this morning and in conse
quence the truck did not get to the
Rosenlield tire, hut it whs repaired
and was readv for work again before

ter Matter Fail.
A prolonged struggle seems immi
in-lit in the matter of the disagree
ment between the Contracting Car
penters' association and the Carpen

tinal conference of the joint commit
tee of the contractors and journey
men carpenters, the latter offered to
submit the entire matter to arbitra
tion and to abide hy the result what
ever it might be, and pending the
outcome to return to work this morn
ing. The boss carpenters, however
rejected the overture, and as a con
sequence the men are sun oui.
The following statement of the sit
nation was sent out by the Carpen
ters' union last night:

mittees of conference of the Con trac

tonight, but failed to come to an
agreement. The committee of Union

know of no other or fairer means of
adjustment we are compelled to let
the matter rest where it is.

GREAT INJUSTICE DONE
The lieinoval of Miss Kane From the
Schools The Klertimi.
The discussion of the removal,
without cause, of Miss Jennie A.
Kane from the corps of public school
teachers by the board of education
at its meeting Saturday, has lieen
attended liy much feeling, the gener
al impression freely expressed on all
sides being that not only has a great
injustice been done the lady in ques-
tinn. but that when it is taken into
consideration the ground assumed bv
the members opposed to the
teacher s reappointment, it is con
sidered little less than an outrage.
hen the A. I . A. organization
took it upon itself to run the schools
of Rock Islam, it was asserted bv
many that once in control of the
schools discrimination against teach
ers of Roman Catholic faith would
follow, but others there were who
disclaimed belief in the employment
ot any such tactics. In the light of
recent events the anticipations look-
ins; to such a course cannot, oe re

Two months ago if a man wanted
a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate
City (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are, good. The objection to the lirst
is its cost, and to the second,' the
wearing out of the filtering discs.
Today, in the so-called "Rapid"
filter, patented April 4th, the good
points of both - filters are combined.
I have the "Rapid," and will be glad
to show it.
