the other at Moline. The idea is to
supplement and increase the eflieien
cy of the state militia in a manner,
and under a system which bears the
approval s nil co-i.pcration of the

about 400 i i the two battalions of

Usually L'l-foot launches are used

are required for one company, and
the Molinn battalion having four

The Reserves use llotchkiss rapid

than the woman, and alighted in
safety. It was afterwards learned by
a reporter that the people had come

to return the tickets from Rock Isl
and to Peoria, and the man proceed

to the train to' get his wife and child,
and as they were about to leave the
train it started up and the woman
jumped, and slipping on the damp
platform and almost rolled under the

owners of the rafter, Jo Long, which
was engaged in touring on ttie upper
river. During that time Short was
the captain and pilot of the boat at
salary of $200 per month, but if their
plaint be true toward the "latter
period of their ownership of the boat

Toward the middle of June. s;2.
Short is accused of having tied up
the Long to the bank at LaCrosse and
without previous notice threw up his
position. He refused to work longer
and telegraphed the owners to come
and get the boat. Capt. McCaffrey
went up to LaCrosse, and after a de
lay of two days succeeded in getting
Short to change his mind and again
take command of the boat. Several
days later at Wabasha. Minn.. Short
again left the boat, when it was again
delayed for some time. In addition
to this, it is alleged that while in
command of the Long he did not run
it in the interest of the owners, and
they therefore make him defendant
in a suit for $100 filed against him.
