The Akgis of yesterday mentioned
in connection with a conversation
with Supt. Bessler, of the C, B. &
Q.. the great rush east of the unem
ployed in Colorado. So far, the C,
R. I. & P. does not seem to have cap
tured its quota of the present gratui
tous through business on Colorado
emigrants. The crowd has surged
along the trans-state lines both north
and south of us. Monday Ottumwa
and Burlington played hosts for sev
eral hundred men who were out of
work and bound east. Tuesday
Clinton had its turn. The Herald of
that date has the following:
When Xo. 2). an cast-bound
freight train, pulled into Clin
ton at 12:20 a. m. today, the
tops of the box cars were literally
black with men who were bound for
the east, and notwithstanding the
fact that they had no money, they
had a good prospect of reaching their
destination. They are from the
panic-cursed districts of Colorado.
They are now called tramps because
they were forced to leave the places
where they have been at work, ami
seek new fields of labor. They came
tlown from the mountains after the
silver mines were shut tlown, and
finding no work in Denver started on
the long walk eastward over the
burning sandv plains of western
Nebraska. As they came along their
number increased until there were
enough of them to take forcible pos
session of the trains and ride free.
At Grand Island. Xcb., Monday they
were given a basket picnic by sym
pathizing citizens, and as they were
determined to come on eastward the
I". P. road furnished them with two
empty box cars to ride in. All w ho
could get in the cars did so and the
balance climbed on top of the train.
There were 250 of them when they
reached that city. They marched in
a body across the bridge, and when
Conductor Gaston, of Xo. 2). gave
the order to Engineer Montgomery
to pull out" the large body of
'busted" men climbed on board.
Threats ami remonstrance were of
no avail ami they were allowed to
ride. At Missouri Valley Gft were
offered and accepted transportation
to the wheat fields of Dakota. At
other points along the road numbers
id them were offered work by the
fanners and they willingly accepted.
Clinton Feeds Tlietu.
Word has been telegraphed ahead
that something be provided for them
here, and before the train pulled out
the patrol wagon was on hand with
30:1 sandwiches and an abundance of
hot coffee, paid for out of the pocket
ot Mayor Hughes, which was given
to the hungrv men.
After partaking of the sumptuous
bill of fare they filled their pockets
wiiu i ue remaining buns and were
profuse in their thanks for the favors.
Then they went back to the train
and climbed aboard. They say it is
hard traveling, but it is their onlv
hope of escaping the starvation that
awaited them in the Colorado min
A Strange Suicide.
Coroner McCortney, of Scott coun
ty, received word yesterday of the
suicide of John F. Riehenberg. a re
tired dairyman, living in Black
Hawk. He went at once to the home
of the man, and found that the act
had been committed in the cellar of
the new house just erected by Rieh
enberg. He had hanged himself with
a wire that he had bent in the form
of a slip-noose. At 10 o'clock he
lunched with his family, and at about
10:3i was found as stated. He was
taken tlown. still warm, but attempts
to bring him back to life were futile.
About a month ago deceased was
overcome by heat, falling to the lloor
in a West Davenport store, ami since
then at times be has exhibited evi
dences of partial aberration. It is
supposed that while in one of these
spells the deed was committed.
Mr. Riehenberg was in his 67th
year. He was a native of Germany,
but hat) lived in this country for 33
years aud served in the cause of
Union in the civil war. He was well-to-do.

A Debauch on the ltiver.
The Lone Star and barge took an
excursion out on the river last even
ing which proved anything but a se
lect affair. It was purely a Daven
port . enterprise, though some Rock
Island eople went aboard. It was
evidently gotten up for a tlebauch,
and in this respect it was a success.
The inhabitants of Bucktown of both
sexes were given free tickets, and no
regrets were sent. The boat had
hardly left the shore when the time
began and pandemonium reigned on
board until the boat landed again.
Men and women participated "with
equal fervor in the melee, and one
could get a fight . at the drop of the
hat. Beer glasses flew right and left
and one Rock Island young man was
knocked senseless by one of these
missiles. Men and women fought
alike, and for those who did not care
to join in the free-for-all, a bar had
been considerately provided, while a
game of chuckluck and other devices
of a similar character for those who
cared to indulge. It was a most dis
graceful affair in every respect.

DEMANDED HER DIAMOND
Miss Belle Richardson Has an Exciting
Kxperience In Chicago.
The Chicago papers of today relate
a rather exciting experience, which
Miss Belle Richardson, daughter of
J. J. Richardson, of the Davenport
Democrat, had in Chicago vesterday
day aftdnoon. In company with
William Ficklen, Miss Richardson
was walking along Drexel boulevard
near Forty-ninth street, when she
was confronted bv a voting man, w ho.
at the point of a revolver, demanded
her diamond pin, at the same time
clutching at her throat. He seized
the pin and immediately afterward
aimed a blow at young Ficklen, so
that young man says, that staggered
him. Ficklen recovered himself
quickly and returned the blow with
his cane, inflicting an ugly wound
oner the highwayman's left eye. A
second blow followed the lirst, 'w hich
left a similar mark over the right
Caught and CUihhed.
The- highwaymen then turned and
ran toward Cottage Grove avenue,
followed by Mr. Ficklen, beating him
at every step. The retreat con
tinued until Cottage Grove avenue
was reached. Here the highway
man hesitated for an instant for a
cable train was approaching. While
he hesitated lieklen came, it is said
by those who saw it. near enough to
deal him a blow full upon the head
which knocked him senseless. Fick
len beat the prostrate man until the
passengers from the train, which
had stoppetl. pulled him away. The
semi-conscious man was then put on
board the train and carried to For
tieth street where an officer was
found, to whom he was delivered.
The prisoner was taken to the Hvde
Park police station where he gave
the name of T. C. Wooden. He

C, M. & St. P. CHECKS.
An t.rroneous Impression That They
Would Not lie Cashed.
Yesterday was pay day on the C,
M: & St. P. road, and the local em
ployes as usual were paid tiff in
checks. Some apprehension was felt
as to the chocks being cashed as they
were drawn on the Mitchell bank of
Milwaukee, which closed its doors
Tuesday. But the local banks re
ceived telegraphic advices to honor
the cheeks when presented, as
they would be redeemable at
the Continental bank at Chi
cago, and furthermore the checks
were most of them so stamped, so
that there was no trouble in collect
ing their face value. All the Rock
Island banks were seen and at all the
information was given that tho
checks would be cashed.
In Moline the same situation was
found to exist. The First National
there paid all the checks presented,
and the Moline National stated that
it would do so if anv were offered.
The Loss of the ila.H Factory.
Rock Island. July 23. Eiutok
Amirs: I read in your paper a few
days ago an item notifying all busi
ness men to attend the Business
Men's association meeting to discuss
the Woodmen and glass factory ami
the park projects. We were "sadly
disappointed when we read the pro
ceedings of the meeting, and notic
ing that the glass factory project
was not thought of. or rather men
tioned. We thought it was the most
important matter that should have
been discussed before that body, for
the closing of the factory means the
vacating of Gft houses by the 115
hands employed there. We don't
believe the association could devote
itself to a fn-tter cause than to do
something to save this industry to
Rock Island, but the association
does not seem to be making the ef
fort it should in that direction.
Thanking you for the insertion in
your valuable paper. Citizen".
