ROW IN THE ROAD.
Trouble Near the Camp Mwtiiie Gronndi
Vettt wday Afternoon.
People who attended the camp
meeting at T ndall's grove yesterday
were entertai led with something that
was not a part of the religious ob
servance of he day. though atone
time during the afternoon it bid
fare to rival it in the attention at
tracted. It -urns that an agree
ment had bten made between the
management of the camp meeting
and the people that nothing should
be sold w ithir a mile of the grounds,
but James McWilliams. of Milan,
had rented some ground adjoining
the camp groi nds for the purjose of
taking care of horses, and was run
ning a cigar stand in connection.
PreMuiii'' Elder Head was informed
of this, and going out seized the
cigars, about .$00 in number, and 75
cents in money which was the
amount of Mi Williams' sales. Mc
Williams' dignity was injured to
such an extent that he was going -to
make it hot" for the elder, but Mr.
Head obtained the services of a few
constables and special police and
they took McWilliams in charge, and
it is reported made him deposit $."
as a bond for lis appearance. Mc
Williams then eft the camp grounds
and the constables followed him.
When once in the road the fun be
gan. McWilliams' friends rushed at
the constables and one of them re
ceived a couple of right handers and
of course this v as too much for the
protectors of the peace so one of
them drew a revolver and said gen
tlemen make way here!"1 Well, the
crowd did move and fast too, and the
dispute was setled for a time at
The Second Heat.
But just as eace was about to
reign supreme out jumped a man, a
brother of one of the constables, who
said he would "punch"' any man who
laid a hand on his brother, and pull
ed o!T his coat. The signal was suf
licent and other oats came off as if a
bath-house was in sight, and had
Cookou" Collins been there looking
for a --snap." he would have been
sadly deceived, for that one man
went up the roar at a 2-minute gait.
It i understood that the matter
will lind its way into the courts be
fore it is fully adjusted.
The Hi -key lluux.
port that Tim Hiekev, the
printer, was shot and killed at the
mouth .f Rock river Thursday eve
ning is positivily denied by Mr.
Hiekey himself. He says that he
was in Davenport all the time he was
stated to have b'-en in camp there.
and that he was nut shot to the best
of his knowledge and belief. The
rumor of his fate was traced to its
origin in some wild talk of a shoot
ing affray at the disreputable camp
above the city, mentioned elsewhere.
Mr. Hickey had nothing to do with
either of them, and he is still verv
much in evidence to his own relief.
He was considerably unnerved when
he read that he h: d been murdered.
He received congratulations on all
hands yesterday. Davenport Demo
