It is rratifyiii to note too, that the spring card about to be is. sued affords more advantages to Kock Island than any heretofore is sued, and will (five the city as satis factory a train service as 'could be wished for. Although the Atlantic accommodations west, and the Feru accommodations east, are not to be restorctl as originally supposed, yet we are to have what is as gool in the way of trains both ways, if not better.

S;ui;h. two fishermen residing near Andalusia, were arrested h- State I Same Warden C. II. ISlow and James First yesterday. Coulter, it seems, is running a fishery near Au duttisia, and for years past he has been doing so, but illegally. Warden lllow anil his assistant. First, have for the past week or more been wag ing war on the lisheraen at Musca tine and Andalusia. Coulter has some liftv or seventy-live nets stretched in the sloughs about. Anda lusia, and when he robs them he takes his lish to Muscatine where lie sells them. The case came up before Magis trate Schroedcr. ami Coulter was lined $50 and costs and .Smith $10 and costs. Smith paid and left last even ing for Muscatine to raise the money for Coulter's line. A Warning. Warden ISlow is here to enfore the law as to all game law breakers, and is determined to exterminate the un fair practice of seining lish. He does not intend to stop at that, but will do all in his power to stop illegal shooting of ducks between April 1 am! Sept. 1. For the hcin-litof the small boys, Mr. F.low wishes to say that the shooting of robhius, bluejays, and, in fact, all our songsters and plumage birds, is illegal, and he is determined to put a stop to it, even if he must arrest ami prosecute them, ami they will do well to take warniug and de sist from their illegal practices.

A young man in Wyoming has written a letter telling his impressions of what he saw when he visited the train carrying Kelly's army to the east, and which Kock Island may have the honor of entertaining in the near future. He says: I boarded a passenger train and went out live miles to meet it. The army was conveyed across this great slate in freight-cars and the 1.200 men were fairly well dressed, with intelligent faces and not unlike labor ing men we find and see all over the country. They const it.irtn an army of crusaders going 1t Washington to apeal to the pride of the national legislators. I observed the men care fully and they seemed to be hones! ami earnest. I asked myself, to what are we coming? And the inspiration I guiucd from looking into the faces of those 1,200 men and the determin ation that shown from them has til led mc full. Completely Carried Away With the Arm)-. "A banner on one of thenars read: (old at a premium: humanity at a discount.' Oh! thought I." 'That bread should be so dear ami flesh and blood so cheap!1 Those men kind, careful, considerate. tc:iccful, willing and able to work! The lesson will sink deep into the hearts of thou sands of men and women who watch them as ihev make their way across the country. It will sink home if the army ever reaches Washington. 'Little, narrow governors in this state and that state ill try to stop the How. but the seed sown in the mountain where the pure a!r breeds good citizens and patriots has done its work alreadj'. Corporate greed and ollicial ignorance ami rascality may slop these men short of Wash ington, but their plea will march on. Their demand will be answered soon er than they believe. Not all the 1.200 have strong minds but al! are flush and blood, ami the inspiration of their presence a struggle alive petition to the pow ers that be cannot go unanswered. I say 1 hat blessed are Kelly ami Coev and Fryc! I ask forgiveness that I at llrst ridiculed them and the movement I have seen. 1 have been convinced, ami with me many hun dreds who saw the petition of flesh and bl od." TO FORM A CLUB. Rcpnltliran- Meet and Ii-trruilne to Make an I-iTort. Inspired by the unusual results of the recent city-township election, a number of the leading republicans of the city, every one of whom claims to hiiiiself the credit of swinging this result as It went, met last evening at the rooms of the Kock Island Citi zens1 Improvement association it talk over how it all happer.edind to consider and reflect upon some means of binding together in bonds of mu tual satisfaction and admiration the chosen ones who were ihus permitted to assemble and to rejoice among themselves over the conquests their valor and sagacity had made possi ble. The resolution presented and adoptetl in the Union office the night of the election, was not thought of in the enthusiasm of the hour, not one of those present last night entertaining for a moment the thought that anyone, other than himself individually had been in it to any serious extent on election day, as far as contributing to the result went. Arpttlnted a Committee. After due deliberation the meeting was called to order, ami Capt. II. A. McDonald was elected chairman and John Kiuek secretary. Then after further deliberation it was decided to appoint a committee on constitution and by-laws and report at a meeting April i'5. These were the favored oues: John Kolloff, First ward; Wil liam Haker, Second ward; V. II. Schroedcr, Third ward; Sam Arndt, Fourth ward; W. 11. Ferguson. Fifth ward; William McConochie. Sixth ward, and Joshua Jlassclijuist, Sev enth wartl. Whether this ambitious band will go the way of the ill fated liberal re publican club of two years a"o re mains to be seen. Turned From the Allar Ta'.ilc. Several hundred members of the order of Modern Woodmen of Amer ica, residing in the three cities, will be interestetl in learning of a lively church light at Hampshire Sunday, which came near resulting ,n blow's! The German Lutherans held quarter ly services at the Evangelical church. Kev. Otto Gainer, of North riattp. officiating. All ran smoothly until the time came to partake of the sacra ment of the Lord's supper, when the pastor flatly refused to ad minister to live members of the church, Fred Weltering, William Nursewick. William Follman, Fret! Kassow ami Fred Geiitschiftv, because they are members of the Modem Woodmen of America. Kev. Gruner insisted Jhat he was acting in accord ance with n decree from "the confer ence which must be strictlv obeyed, and said that he was convinced that the Modern Woodmen of America and other secret Societies are antagonistic to the church and its teaehiii"?. - Mr. Weltering acted as vpokc smun for the iiiemlMTs. and told IUjv. Gruner that he was a willful prevaricator. The live members then withdrew from the building. i A Smart Womaa Is always ready lot any emergency. She keeps a bottle of Parks' .

A Former Kock Islander Xnici.le In St. Louis. Sad indeed is the fate which befell William Ililden, a former Kock Isl ander, in St. Louis a few da3"s since. Hilden was, until last fall, a molder in the employ of the Kock Island Stove works, and resided at the corner of Eighth street and Seventh aveuue. He was a sober and indus trious fellow, and when work became slow there last fall, ho moved to St. l-ouis. but could not liud work, ami during the winter has subsisted on money derived from little jobs about the city. lie seemed to take to heart greatly his enforced idleness, and of late has brooded over it a great .leal, and about two weeks ago. he became violently insane, ami was incarcerated in the insane ward in the St. Iotiis jail. Deupcratc Suiei.Ie. On Monday, April it, the attennant brought him his l.reakfast, ami Hil den, while the attendant's back was turned, secured a galvanized tin cup ami secreted it. The attendant left, and Hilden then drew forth the cup, and breaking it, cut his throat with the rough edge. Hilden was Ms years of age, ami w as the fat her of two children, w ho are left with his bereaved wife tn mourn his loss. He was well known and liked in K.tek island, and was a member of Kock Island camp. No. M. W. A. The remains were interred at Keokuk. THE NEW HOSPITAL. .raJiii ItecuH ati.l l'rojx-cls Itricht for a Mre l;i:llllnS. The Franciscan sisters of St. An thony's hospital have been laboring umier many difficulties since their arrival in "Kock Island about one year ago. The want 01 room and conveniences required for the care of the sick have been a great obstacle in the path of their progress. Oa Tuesday morning, however, the work of gratling for the new hospital was begun, as the sisters are pleased to inform the good citizens of Kock Island and Moline. and they sincerely trust that the kindness and generosi ty of the past will continue in the future, and through the same assis tance they will soon be able to pre sent the city with a building which will be an ornament aid a blosin", as well tis a great aid t j the sisters in their work. Have A--om;iiie!ud Slue!:. In one short year the sisters have accomplished wonders for the good ol humanity, and in the care of the sufferiug. liut still this result has not been achieved without the untir ing ami unseilish work of those who deserve the highest credit am! who in their efforts ask for the coopera tion of every citizen in Kock Island and Mo'.inc, and hope that the idea, as entertained by some, that all are not welcome, has been blotted out. - The Aunny tuc.ti Lt-tter. The Chicago Post has the following which in a general way ought to be food for reflection for the Union and some of the brave-hearted correspon dents who undertake to light its bat tles for it, when occasion mar. re quire: The Kaptists of the town of Mata wan. which is in the county of Mon mouth, in the state of New Jersey, are sensible folk. They received an anonymous letter inclosing charges against their pastor. They torc!up the letter and held a meeting at which the pastor's salary was in creased. Good for the Baptists. The man who will write an anonvmous perso na!, letter save to a 'charity fund would steal a halo. He is always a t oward ami a liar and frequently he is a fool. He never succeeds in his purpose except when his letters are addressed to his kind. It llmi'l Cost A tit thine To try Farks" Sure Cure. A snecilic tor t he cure of all diseases peculiar tu women.
