The First Solemn Occasion Thin Morning
Followed by the Second TIiIm Afternoon

Tall Hearers -The Double Fatality rub.
Sadly in contract with the occasion
of a week ag) today, when a party of
about 20 of Hock Island's best known
you up peopl) started for Camp Vag
abondia on ihe banks of Hock river
were the events of today, when two
of the brightest and nuift promi
nent members of that party were
taken from the darkened homes into
which they were brought Saturday
afternoon, a vay to the silent city of
rest. Thus- came the concluding
chapter brought about by the sor
rowful affair of last Saturday morn,
ing. No past occurrence in Rock
Island's history has awakened more
genuine grief than has been manifest
on all sides over the shocking death
of Clark II. Buford and Miss Fannie
Sudlow, and if sympathy pure and
deep-felt could soothe the acking
hearts of those from whom these
young peopl ? have been so suddenly
taken, an entire community seeks to
Ami in addition to the expressions
of condolence that were offered from
pceple in llock Island and vicinity,
telegrams offering consolation came
in by the score from various parts of
the country. Among the first of
these messages were those from e
Congressma.i Ben T. Cable at Rye
Reach, N. II., who is related
to both famine". Saturday evening
Mr and Mrs. R. R. Cable' and lien
Cable, of Ch'cago, arrived in response
to news of the sad affair. It is a dou
bly sorrow! ul bereavement to Mr.
('able, inasmuch as both young peo
ple were relited to him. Mr. Ruford
being his brother-in-law. and Miss
Sudlow his neice. Others from
abroad who came to attend tiie fu
neral of Mr. Buford were: Mrs. Hal
Morgan, of Louisville, and Miss Vcno
Herndon. ( f Lexington. Ky., Dr.
Streeter, and Lewis Osborn.of Chica
go, and C. O. Tfei!. of Arcnzville. 111.
At both houses of sorrow there
was a great profusion of tloral
offerings, beautiful in design. All
the florist- in the three cities
found their supplies nearly exhaust
ed, while many tributescame in from
Chicago and elsewhere. The vonng
people composing Camp Yagahondia
sent to each home a tloral circle with
a Mar in th center, while the young
gentlemen of the party sent a broken
wheel for J r. Buford and a broken
tloral lyre for Miss Sudlow. The
architects ff the three cities sent a
handsome design emblematic of the
profession for Mr. Ruford. There
were other beautiful designs and a
great mass of flowers at both homes
which it is impossible to enumerate.

tor directed the arrangements. There
was a large attendance at the house,
including relatives and friends from
Davenport. An extensive funeral
cortege proceeded to Oakdale ceme-
were tenderly entrusted to the grave.
The Fatal Locality.
From what has been learned since
the shocking double drowning of
Saturday and the peril of the others
composing the bathing party, it is
evident that the bathers struck the
most dangerous and treacherous
place there is along Rock river, from
six to ten lives having been lost
within 100 yards of where Saturday's
fatality occurred in the past. The
water cuts a deep pocket through
the sand bar there, and this together
with the swift running under cur
rent makes it impossible for
any one unless an extraordinary
good swimmer to get out when once
precipitated into its depths. There
is a rocky bottom, and it was only by
reaching some of the most prominent
of these rocks that the survivors es
caped Saturday. When Mr. Buford's
body was recovered there was a
bruise on the right side of the face
near the temple, which may indicate
lhat as he went down in his efforts i
save his companion. Miss Sudlow, he
may have struck a rock, rendering
him unconscious, and this may ac
count for the fact that his body did
not rise again.
The bathing parties from Camp
Vagabondia previous to Saturday, it
seems, pursued a different course,
sticking closely to the sandbar. Not
all of tliose who went in Saturday
had been in before and they appeared
to make the fatal mistake of entering
the water at the wrong place. .
The ton tent Itetnrcn Cable and Uurliorow
Some of the Illinois members of
congress and fello politicians from
that state will reach Washington
early this week. Ex-Congressman
Snow expects them to aid him in his
tight for the position of sergeant-at-arms
of the house. Among those
expected is ex-Congressman Cable
and Congressman Durborow. The
cause of their promised simultan
eous appearance is thus explained by
a local capital paper:
Ex-Representative Cable and Rep.
resentative Dnborow are still at it,
the former behind Mr. Snanjrler, the
latter behind Mr. Twohig, and the
object of the struggle is the Chicago
collfctorship. This matter of com
bat is apparent ly no nearer settle
ment than six months ago. Which
will win no man at proent may saj
The ofih-c is located , in Mr. Dur
borow's district. Mr. Cable was
chairman of the national democratic
committee for Illinois in the last
campaign, ami as such did remarka
ble work for the democratic party.
Up to date he has been more success
ful in tilling offices than any con
gressman from that state. He 'is not
confident of success in the present
instance. Those who know him,
however, know that he will not
abandon the fight until the nomina
tion is made. Mr. Cable's pugnacity
is one of his most distinguished char
acteristics. He is a tireless fighter,
of large wealth, independent of every,
one and speaks his mind upon all
subjects with a refreshing freedom.
These qualities make him an oppo
nent who will bear a great deal of
watching and will be of especial
prominence in the senatorial fight of
next year. Mr. Cullom's term does
not expire until 1895. but the legis
lature which will elect is to be chosen
in the fall of 18D4.
It is no secret that Mr. Cable
wants to be United States senator.
His very laudable ambition in this
direction has been known to his con
gressional delegation and other Illi
noisans of prominence for some time
past. The struggle will come over
the composition of the legislature.
It is generally granted that if a ma
jority of democrats-be given seats no
faction worthy of t lie Cable steel will
make an appearance. If the repub
licans win the democrats, of course,
will not contest. Among the Illinois
congressmen it seems to be the gen
eral impression that the next legis
lature will be democratic unless the
action of Governor Atgeld in pardon
ing the anarchists reacts upon the
party of the state much more se
riously than is now expected. If
present calculations are not astray
the public is apt to see Mr. Cable in
the upper chamber.

TM-City Saving Itank Act In Protection
of Their Interext.
In view of the stringency of money
matters and the unnecessary timidi
ty on the part of depositors which
mighfateny time give undue cause
for alarm seriously affectinr monc-
tary institutions, a conference was
held Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock.
of representatives of savings banks
of the three cities which resulted in
the adoption of the following:
Notice to Depositors.
Believing that it will be for the
best interests of all our depositors
and the community generally, that
the withdrawal of funds bv thought-
ess and timid depositors should be
checked before our cash resources are
exhausted, we. the undersigned sav
ings banks, have decided to hereafter
demand the O davs'.nolice in writ
ing provided for by the by-laws, aiTd
the savings bank law of the state,
which we have hitherto waived.
By order of our boards of direc
tors: German Savings bank. Davenport
Savings bank. Scott County Savings
bank. Union Savings bank," Farmers'
and Mechanics Savings bank, of Dav
enport, Iowa: Rock Island Savings
bank, of Rock Island. III.; Moline
State Savings bank. Peoples' Savings
bank, of Moline, 111.
A Wip Precaution.
This is merely a precautionary
move, and a wise one. It is a step
in me interest ot self-protection and
more particularly in the interest of
the depositors themselves. The
stringency now prevailing in no way
affects the security of deposits in
savings banks, because they are by
the banks loaned on farms and
other real estate which in all
cases nre worth from two to three
times the amount loaned, yet at such
times some thoughtles or timid per
sons will withdraw their deposits.
thereby injuring themselves by los
ing interest and by placing their
money alike within the reach of the
burglar ami the impecunious bor
rowing friend who never pays back.
They at the same time injure the
general public and the business in
terests by withdrawing from circula
tion that money which otherwise
could be placed at the disposal of
farmers, mills, factories and busi
ness nun. Fortunately the savings
bank laws have chid savings banks
with a power to protect themselves
against such thoughtlessness or
timid persons by providing that they
may require 00 days, written notice
of the withdrawal of any deposits.
The savings banks, of New York,
adopted a similar course a week ao,
regarding it as the safest way of of
fering protection to their depositors
ana to tneir business interest.
