One of the motormen who had been
running a Tower train during the

recklessness last evening in backing
his train from Seventeenth street to
the Moline avenue car barns, pushing
the trailer first. The experiment
doubtless saved the motorman a lit

in any respect and ought not be re

A special from Burlington says:
Representatives of the old line in
surance companies in this city have
received from George E. Red field, in
spector of the eastern part of the Iowa
inspection bureau, circulars advising
them that on anil after August 1 the
existing rates on all mercantile risks
will be advanced t'O per cent, and on
Hour mills, elevators, sawmills, etc.,
an increase of 50 per cent, is ordered.
The reason given for this increase is
I the great increase in fire losses. The
agents here are indignant over the
raise and a meeting was called and
resolutions adopted voicing their
protest. The increase of 20 per
cent, is considered an outrajre as the
agents had been promised a reduc
tion of the rates as soon as the city
had completed its waterworks. The
city has a splendid system of water
works now and if the 20 per cent, in
crease is insisted upon many policies
win ie cancelled.

Manager McCaddon states that the
show business is exceedingly dull
this season. The World's fair, to at
tend which, people are, as a rule,
economizing in denying themselves
other modes of amusement, and the
dull times are combining to make it
exceedingly difficult for the great
shows traveling under big expense to
make ends meet. It is indeed a
small wonder that the Forepaiiffh
combination carries as much as it
does under these circumstances. The
show has been losing monevfor some
time, but Mr. McCaddon expressed
himself as highly pleased with Rock
Island and the business done here.
He was very happy, he said, to be
able to name the sacred little animal
born here after a citv that had left
such a pleasant impression on his
Manager McCaddon was particu
larly interested in and pleased with
the local street railway system.
Means of transjortation is a matter
of the greatest importance to us,"
he said, "for getting people to the
grounds is half the battle. I am sur
prised at the excellence of your
street railways here. Two-minute
trains and of the first-class cars at
that, to the show grounds,is a luxury
that we don't come across in one city

C. L. Dean, the press t.gent of the

a scholar, and the local papers are
under obligations to him for many
courtesies and attentions. He has
been with the show but a short
time, giving up a position on the
Chicago limes to temporarily act in
the place of George O. Starr, the
former press agent, who is Europe
acting in the capacity of foreign pur
chasing agent. His services have
been so eminently satisfactory to the
show and to the public that he has
been induced to abandon the news

with the 1-orepaugh management.

The old man who drives tke but
termilk cart in the Forcpaugh
parade, and is often arrested bv un
suspecting policemen, is a most gen
ial old fellow personally. His name
is John Manning, and he doesn't
make up his face a particle. He told
some amusing incidents of his ex
periences in his parade act. There
is seldom a city in which he does not
manage to get taken in by the police
one or mure times during the
parade. He got a little more than
he bargained for at St. Louis, how
ever, recently. He was arrested by
a policeman for disturbing the peace
and locked up in a station over night,
and in spite of all explanations was
fined the next morning for selling
milk without a license. He paid his
fine like a little man and was event
ually reimbursed by the show com
pany, all the attaches considering it
the best joke of the season. Mr.
Manning has been with the show for
five or six years, and is one of its
best features, lie says he changes
the role of his character every year
to keep the police in ignorance of his
identity. It will be remembered
that he drove a load of hay in the
parade here two years ago.
One of the expert bareback riders
sprained his ankle severely during
the jH-rformance Saturday night,
while making a somersault on horse
