The Davenport RaNines Men's Association
Manipulated hy the Mluoritj.
At the meeting of the Davenport
Business Men's association last
night, action was again taken
relative to electric cars on
the Rock Island bridges, of
which the Tribune f this morning
F. W. Smith moved to reconsid
er the resolution adopted at the last
meeting eonueming the scheme ot
running electric cars across the
bridge. He said he was against the
project; hut as there had been threats
of reconsideration, he wanted to
have the matter settled as far as the
association is concerned. The mo
tion prevailed, and there was a
lenthy discussion; theonly onespeak
ing in favor of the project being Mr.
Davidson. There was no use argue
ing. as nearly all present were
against 1 lie project As there were
less than 80 in the rooms, it doesn't
look as though an expression of the
association had been obtained yet.
The resolution was readopted.
It looks as if the association was
being manipulated on this question
hy the same few who directed the ac
tion al the previous meeting, and
that the full voice of the association
is ditlicult to obtain on the matter.
That precious few may be able to
rub' th? Davenport Business Men's
association, but it will not rule the
community when it comes to the
iiuestion of the convenience of the
masses as against the interests of a
monopoly that has run things here
for years, and is willing to turn
heaven and earth to tight down com
petition in any form.
Tor the Davenport Business Men's
association it can only be said that
either it lias been misinformed as to
facts and has never seen the majority
report of its own committer on rapid
transit, or someone very much inter
ested in the ferry has a great pull
with it. TllF.-Ai;tu s. which does not
feel like judging its motives too has
tily, is disposed to believe that
the majority resolution referred to
has not been "properly brought be
This opinion is prompted by the
following, which appears in this
morning's Davenport Democrat:
Mr. Davison was in favor of action
being postponed until further time
could be taken for investigation. In
reply it was urged that the matter
had been as fully investigated as it
was possible that it could be. Xn
such condition of affairs existed, al
most, on any other bridge that could
be mentioned certainly on no bridge
traversed by electric cars a narrow
roadway that compelled teams to
keep in the street car tracks, railway
trains above on the bridge and be
neath on the viaduct, a draw that
compelled . frequent closing of the
bridge and consequent blockades,
and so on.
On the contrary the committee
presented abundant evidence from
i-ities similarly sit uated to Lock Isl
and Davenpott. setting forth under
oath the fact that both electric and
cable car had been operated on
bridges and had proved invariably as
safe and unobjectionable as horse-cars.
LOWER END ENTERPRISE.
Samuel Bciska. the man found near
the upper lumber yards on the rail
road tracks, was lined and costs
yesterday afternoon for intoxication.
Swan Nelson, an old offender, was
picked up by Officer Mulqueen last
evening at Twentieth sfrcet and Fifth
avenue, where he was sweetly sleep
ing with a curbstone for a pillow.
This morning he denied having had
a ride in the patrol wagon, but the
evidence was sufficient to warrant
that lie didn't know whether he was
dead or alive last evening, so Magis
trate Schroeder fined him ii and
Officers Crotnpton and Dumbauld
this morning arrested twoyoung men
on Twentieth street on suspicion of
their having committed the burglary
at the Denkmann residence on Sun
day evening, answering as they did
the descriptions of the men seen
about the premises and neighbor
hood. The men gave their names as
David Tabor and Fred Dunell of Cold
Water, and Fverett. Mich., respec
tively, and had in their possession
some property marked W. & D..
which, while it has not been identi
lied as belonging to the Denkmann
household, forms a peculiar coinci
dence, to sav the least.

Directors and Otticers for the Drury Toll
The stockholders of the Drury Toll
road held a meeting in Muscatine the
other evening for the purpose of
electing Ave directors under the
terms of the recent subscriptions.
The meeting organized with W. II.
Hoopes as chairman and W. L. Mull
as secretary. By request C. Lilli
bridge gave a short sketch of the
original organization of the compa
ny, which was duly incorporated un
der the laws of Iowa, and with
a limited amount of capital,
only sufficient for the pnrpo.-Q
of enabling it to perfect prelimi
nary work. As the present directors '
only held their positions temporari
ly, the election of a new board was
in order. After the reading of the'
artielexof incorporation as recorded,
a ballot was taken, resulting in the
choice of S. G. Stein, Henry Mur
dock, W. L. Mull. U. B Huff'and C.
Lillibridge for directors, who are to
serve for one year. Mr. Murdock
being a stockholder from Drury
township was placed on the board by
a practically unanimous vote, as all
conceded the wisdom of having one
member from the Illinois side of the
The O Hirers.
The directors met at Muscatine
yesterday and elected ollicers as fol
lows: President Chester Lillibridge.
Vice President S. G. Stein.
Secretary K. B. Huff.
Treasurer A. B. Brown.
Superintendent of Construction
The board ordered an assessment
of 10 per cent, on subscriptions, the
same to be payable Sept. L'G.

to achieve this week anil they solicit your aid in the accomplish
ment. RESULTS to be gained in our imjess goois department will be the
clearing of some hundreds of remnants, the accumulation of the

nants are marked in plain figures, do your- own deducting, in
many instances you can save enough to buy the dress trimmings.
This week only.

dozen handsome window shades with dado, mounted on spring
rollers with fixtures complete, price has never been less than 35c,

Two Crew Coaches on Fire in the Knck Isl
The alarm of lire last evening sent
in from box 03, called the department
to the C, R. T. & P. ra lroad yards,
near the round house, and the ap
paratus, responded promptly. A
wild report hail become current in
the city that the Kock Island round
house or depot was on lire. The
street cars were crowded with people
going to the scene. When the de
partment arrived it was found that
two cabooses were on tire, numbers
12.H0 and 12.140. Number 12.140
was damaged the most. It was in
charge of Conductor Karney. and he
was sleeping in it when Porter John
Puss awakened him. The other ca
boose. 12,1 to. was not damaged quite
as badly, but the loss on both coaches
will probably amount to about $400.
Car number 12.140 was in charge of
Saved the Kound House.
No doubt but for the promptness
of the yard men. the round house
would have been burned, but the ca
booses were moved on a clear track,
and the lire department had plenty
of chance to extinguish the liames,
which was done in good shape.
The burning coaches caused a
bright illumination in the east,
which caused the reprt as to dire
destruction in progress.
In Iralse of Milj. Mackenzie.
The following is from a column of
river chat in the Sunday St. Louis
A pilot of prominence who has just
returned from (Juincy. who has been
running as a pilot between St. Louis
and Keokuk since isstr,. and wluis a
close observer of low water every
season, said: In the olden time
pilots' gauges for recording the
depth of the water were not what
they are now. We were obliged to
locate marks on the bank, such as
Smoots" Rock" and 'Mechanics' Rock',
and to rely upon them for gauges.
Since then the gauges adopted are
the railroad bridges that span the
river, and they furnish us with a
more certain plan to keep a record of
high and low water.
As to river improvements gener
ally, too much praise cannot be given
to Major Mackenzie and his corps of
assistants for their efficient and dur
able work at the different shallows.
Last year, when there was two feet
on Louisiana gauge, there was but
four feet in the shallow places, while
now there is seven inches on Louisi
ana gauge and three feet 10 inches in
the channel and three-and-a-half feet
steamboat water, which is surely an
improvement, and due to the work
done in the last two years by the gov
ernment. I think all that Maj. Mack
enzie needs is money to demonstrate
the utility of his work."

Furniture Trafle Sales
Without long-tailed words, the
statement in plain clothes is that the
manufacturers of furniture have
found out that if they will give
us their best material designs and
workmanship and not try to humbug
with prices, we can give' them quick
We have just placed on sale a car-
loaa ot ocuroom suits ranging
price from $15.50 to $35.00
These are by far the best values ever placed in this market for
the money. Even the cheapest set is hard wood double top tine
bevel mirror, and the finish and workmanship are as good as oa
any set you could buy elsewhere for from $1$ to $20.
FOLDING BEDS $l'.t to $45 these are special
WARDROBES $lo to $20.
You can't equal them elsewhere for price, style, quality or
finish. There has been a kind of race-horse rapidity to the way in
which the legs of tables, bedsteads, couches and cither furniture
have moved off some to freshen up old houses, and others to be
hid away until ready to move into the new house.

An Infant's Honrs
Friday afternoon, it is learned, a
find was made in the west end of the
city that mav open up the discovery
of a tragedy or lead simply to a puz
zling question that will never be an
swered. On that day some boys, who were
playing about an old barn in the
vicinity of the Canning works there,
eame upon some bones. The people
who have seen them pronounce them
to be the bones of both hands and
some other bones of a child, and
a very young child. With the find no
evidence that would indicate murder
were noted, but it appears that the
bones have been there for a long
time, and other suspicions circum
stances might by this time be entire
ly obliterated. "The authorities do
riot appear to have been made ac
quainted with the find, and it is not
known that any investigation is be
ing ntade in the matter. Davenport
