BEAUTIFUL SUBURBAN WEDDING.
Sylvan Height the Scene of a Ilrllliant
Kvent in the Presence of a I.arjre An-x-mMaRO
of Frlenila Two of the
County's Itest Known Young People
.Joined For Life.
Sylvan Heights, the beautiful su
burban home of Mr. and Mrs. T. S.
Silvis, was the scene of an interest
ing and happy event last evening,
witnessing as it did the joining in
the sacred bonds of matrimony of
Miss Henrietta, daughter of the host,
to William II. White, of Milan. The
ceremony was performed at S:30
o'clock iv Kev. J. II. Kerr, of the
Central Presbyterian church, this
city, the impressive ritual of the
Frotestant Episcopal church being
used. The brida". pair stood at the
south end of the east parlor, the
floral decorations being a most ad
mirable feature and consisted of a
lovely bank of ferns, palms, lilies,
etc., "in front of which the wedding
was celebrated, while evergreens
were arranged in graceful festoons
from the ceiling. The guests, which
included the relatives and a large
number of friends, were pleasantly
reeeived by Mr. and Mrs. Silvis. a
mandolin I'.rehest ra stationed in the
library on the second lloor enlivening
the scene with delightful strains and
executing a grand wedding march as
the bridal couple entered and took
position. The bride appeared in
a rich gown of white silk trimmed
with lace, her ornaments were dia
monds, while she carried a boiiijuet
of bridal roses. The groom w ore t he
conventional evening dress of black.
Following the ceremony calne a
season nf congratulation, alter which
all repaired to the dining hall, where
a bounteous wedding feast was
spread. Mr. and Mrs. White were
recipients of many bridal gifts, mag
nificent, ornamental and useful.
It had been planned to gie the
bridal couple the customary seiid-otT
on their departure on their wedding
trip, but in anticipation' of it they
had slipped away during the festivi
ties, and when the search began they

were on their way ov carnage n .Mo
line, where they took a train for tin
east on their "wedding trip, which
will include the World's" fair, of
course, as well as other points of in
terest, and on their return they will
be at home to their friends at Milan.

The contest over the appointment
of an internal revenue collector for
Chicago is waxing warm at Wash

ravoi Tvvohig at tirst. but it is now
conceded that the persistency and

the conditions. The Chicago Tost

Mr. IMirborow looked just a trifle
crest fallen as he came out of t he w hite
house. His talks had not been so
fruitful of encouragement as he had
expected. lie appreciated the force
of Cable's attack. He told the presi
dent of Senator r.ihner's interest and
said that he bcliced that it had a
good effect: but he was not now pre
pared to sav that Twohig had a walk
awav. lle'wdiind up by declaring
that he should sec the secretary -and
the president tomorrow again and
that the fight uotild be a very .bitter
one. It has now become a contest
between Senator rainier and Mr.
Durborow on one side and Cable and
the Cook county democracy on tin

AT THE TOWER.
The Modern Wnodmrn Festivities Yester
day Afternoon .
Probably no gathering of people
that ever assembled on anypot in
this vicinity was more lavish in its
praises of the place and the weather
than that which congregated at Hlack
Hawk Tower yesterday afternoon.
The day was indeed an ideal one, and
no one could linger among the trees
without feeling that it was one day
in a thousand. Reneath the many
beautiful shade trees picnic parties
had spread their lunches, while the
younger people enjoyed the. View
dancing pavilions and other amiisf
ments that are provided. The pro
gram proper was necessarily cut
somewhat short on account of some
of the otlicers leaving for home.
Maj. fl:ives' Remarks.
After the addresses spoken of yes
terday afternoon had been delivered
Ma"). Hawes, the genial head clerk of
the order, was introduced and spoke
at some length. He expressed his
gratification at being, able to be
among his old friends for whom he
always had a warm spot, and later
gave great praise to the head otlicers
and directors of the order for their
zealous labors on behalf of the order.
He spoke of their efforts at Spring
field during the last session of the
legislature in securing the passage
of the bill referred to yesterday, by
which it will be comparatively easy
to remove the head offices of t he or
der to this city. Director J. C John
son, of Kansas, was then introduced
and made a bright brief speech.

He was followed bv Head Consul
Northcott. who made the closing ad

peculiar to him and were greatly en
joved by all his auditors. Iilcucr's
ba"nd furnished both brass and string
music, and in the evening hundreds
w ho had been unable to go out dur

delightful evening and made the
Tower a visit. On the whole the
picnic, w hich had been handled in
sueli a manner that all were enter

THEY KNOW COMFORT.
A Tret ty New Home for the Kapiiis Pilots
Some time when you haven't any
thing to do drop down to the river
front ami take a look at the new
quarters of the rapids pilots. Al
most anv morning, afternoon, or
evening you will find one, or perhaps
all of the three social occupants of
quarters chatting pleasantly with
some friend about the good old days
ou the Mississippi, when, as Mark
Twain puts it. -'it amounted to some
thing to be a steamboat pilot.'1 For
a i!aee to spend a social hour, there
is not a more agreeable spot to be
found anywhere. Capts. Wash
Hight. Andy "Coleman and Dos Hol
sapple. who for several seasons past
have been the recognized rapidi
pilots, are in a pool whereby they
take their turn at running the
rapids. Here, right n the bank of
the river, where they can be most
cotiv cnient to tin ir w ork, they have
established a joint home. Two port
able houses have been built w it h fold
ingdoors between. and arc lit ted up to
the queen's taste. The houses which
were designed by the gentlemen
themselves, were built by Hudson iv
Parker. and are models of conven
ience and comfort.
Are Near a Hand.
All of the gentlemen have their
homes elsewhere, but. sleep at their
i. natters w here the passing boats can
loiwfi mid 'ct them dav or night.
Not onlv have the gentlemen bi

but shade t rees have been

coolest snots on therivei
u Hl.-.i iri.it v ;iid inviting a nlaci
as this to spend the warm nays it is
litl Ie wonder that the popular pilots
are not seen much on thejiot streets.
Another noteworthy improvement
that has been made is thai i the ap
pearance of the Diamond Jo ware
house w hieh Capt. I.amont has had
rebuilt. Although Kock Island's
river front has no' Crccian architec
ture to adorn it. it is far from being
as bad as that of many oilier cities
not a hundred miles away.

The committee has a letter from

Class company, offering the plant for
sale at $i7,5t)0 cash, which is consid
ered very reasonable.
Should lie Attended To.
The matter is one that should re
ceive the attention of our business
men. and some steps be taken that
iv ill insure the retention of this in
dustry in Hock Island. The above
figure's were taken from the books of
tin- company by the local committee.
The men w ho are doing w hat they
can to save this factory for Kock Isl
and have lived here from lo to I'M
years, and are anxious to remain
here. If their efforts are not at
tended bv some degree of encourage
ment, of course t hey will be obliged
to go elsewhere for work, and Kock
Island's business interests will suffer
bv the loss of NO families.
The factory has rim here !': years
and has prospered right along, and it
is entirely safe to presume that the
fact. irv can sti ml v t he local market
and that t he dilference in freight will
more than cover the advantage of
saving in fuel of the factories loca
ted in the natural gas belts.

"When a Kanaka feels a bit out of sorts
he imajcines that he liasnotlieen diligent
enough in his devotions to some particu
lar pod. He immediately procures a
bunch of avva or something in the nature
of a comforting drink, and after a short
prayer to his mountain or river deity be
murmurs apologetically, "Here's your
food" or "Here's your drink." as the
case may be. Then he devours the sol
ids or liquids himself. If the Kanaka's
health improves, the god is appeased. If
sickness still creeps over him. he tnms
to the II:;hr.Tir!. f l':e is im
mediately hunted r.; and ::i;.roached
with a Imnch of nwa or n pi.ir. Then the
Kanaka dilates riio:i his infirmities, and
the Kahuna begins preparing to drive
out the sickness or the evil spirit.
The patient is stripiied and laid flat,
and wnth a bunch of ti leaves the Ka
huna rubs him till over, murmuring
meaningless words the while. If the
Kanaka gets well, the Kahuna's influ
ence is increased. If the Kanaka dies, he
was a doomed man anyhow, and the Ka
huna did his lK-st. Such of the Kanakas
as patronize a Kahnna nowadays do it
covertly, and the Kahunas keep under
cover. Honolulu Cor. Chicago Tribune.
