The 1-air Show l ight, but Are Overcome by Officers Kantz mod Bender Probable Looters of m Davenport Safe Three Km. Iiienres Entered Minor Misdeeds. About 2 o'clock this morning Offi cers Kautz and Bender had a livelv . ... j ip.nne wiin iwo fellows near Joe Ilubcr's saloon, on Fifth avenue. In catching these two men, the officers have no doubt landed a couple of smooth burglars. At the time of their arrest the men were prowling around the lluber residence, evidently seek ing to gain an entrance. Kach of them had on his person a loaded 32 calibre revolver, which was carried in an outside overcoat pocket, so that in case of trouble, a protector could be drawn very easily. It was only coming upon the fellows un awares that saved the officers from being forced to exchange shots with them. It was only with the greatest difficulty, and after a superior man ful struggle ou the part of the officers, that the men were overcome, having had hold of their pistols, but were grab bed before being able to get them out of their pockets. At the point of their revolvers the officers managed to get their captors to the box and call the wagon. Another suspicious looking fellow giving his name as John Acton, was also taken down with thorn, and is supposed to be used as spotter by the two when doing their jobs, as he was standing on the sidewalk outside of the saloon looking around while his supposed pals were getting acquainted with the lay of the land. Ou arriving at po. lice headquarters the two registered as Al Donahoo and C. W. Ilitt. Each had a box of cartridges, while Doia hoo also had $43. The men had come to this city from Davenport, where they claim'they had spent two days looking for work. Hitt fays he is a Pullman striker, and Donahoo claims New York as his home. They are well-dressed, sleek-looking indi viduals, and from all appearances have not done much hard work dur ing their days. Information was received from Davenport this morning that a safe had been blown ojen over there, ami something over if 10 taken, during last night, and it is supposed the work was done by these fellows, as the amount in their possession seems to correspond with that looted from the safe. The Iavenport 8-tfc, The safe in Knostman & Son's fur niture store on East, Second street. Davenport, was the one looted, and Chief Kessler, accompanied bv Mr. Knostman, called on Chief Sexton at noon today to identify the money found in the possession of Ilitt and Donahoo. While Mr. Knostman is not positive that the money is that taken from his safe. 13 cents in pen nies and a S-cent piece found on Hilt's person, corresponded exactly with the amount of small change which he left in the safe together with the fit). The m'n also had a pearl handled knife, which Mr. Knostman thinks belongs to his wife. Mrs. Knostman is expected over this afternoon, and if she identities the knife, the men who broke open the safe are captured. John Acton, who was arrested as a supposed pal of Hitt and Donahoo. was released this afternoon. lturclarim. The residence of W. B. Ferguson, 702 Twenty-first street, was entered early Sunday morning, and a gold ring and child's wrap taken. About the same time the residences of Al bert Huesing, 840 Twentieth street, and Alphons Mosenfelder, 808 Twen tieth street, were also ransacked, a boy's silver watch being taken at the former place. Nothing is missed from Alosenfelder's house, the ma rauder having evidently been scared away when they were about to carry off a lot of silverware which thev had taken out of the cupboard aqd placed on the table. I'ollce Folnta. Three bums were arrested bv Officer Carnes this morning about 2 o'clock, for quarreling in a barn on Twenty-second street, and taken to the station in the wagon. They were ordered to leave town this morning. William Brown, who boarded at Koenigsaecker's restaurant on Third avenue and Twenty-first street, was arrested by Officer Weigand for creating a disturbance in Murray's saloon, opposite Speneer square, about 12 o'clock Saturday night. He was lined f-3 and costs this morn ing by Magistrate Schroeder. Com plaint was also made against Murray for running a disorderly house, and he was assessed $5 and costs. A forlorn looking female wan. dered into the police station about 2 o'clock this morning, wearing a man's white straw hat, her garments all covered with sawdust, and also carrying a good load of corn juice. She told Captain Kramer that two fellows had dragged her into an alley near Seventeenth street back of Fourth avenue, made her drink a bottle full of whisky and criminally assaulted her. Then they kicked and abused her. When she came to her senses she was lying in an old wagon. Her hat was also missing, and the old straw hat left in its stead. She accompanied Officer Carnes to the scene of the assault, but no trace of her assailants could be found. The woman is a stranger in the town and is a hard looking character, claiming her home as Osh- kosh. Wis. She was locked up, and win no nourit gel a sentence under the soiled dove ordinance. THE LAST SUMMONS. Peter Ward an Old Resident Die at Dav enportOther Obituary. Feter Ward, an old time and high ly resqiected citizen of Rpck Island, died at his home, 504 Iowa street, Dav enport, at C o'clock this morning of the aflirmities of extreme old age. He would have attained his 9.1th year had he survived until Dec. 20 next. He was one of Rock Island's early residents and was familiar until about twelve years ago as a drayman. Since his removal to Davenport at that time he has lived in retirement. He leaves with his wife four daugh ters, Mrs. Anne Collins, Mrs. Lizzie Stewart, and Misses Mamie and Tcs sie Ward. The funeral will occur from St. Anthony's church, Davenport, at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning. Mrs. KlK-rtoW Death. The Muscatine Journal of Satur day evening has" the following obit- uarv of Mrs. Ldgerton, sister of W. B. Mclntyre of this city, whose fu neral occurred there Saturdav after noon, the remains being taken to Oconomowochies for interment. The many friends .if Mrs. Edger ton, oldest daughter of II. A. Mcln tyre. residing on West Third street were painfully surprised to hear of her death, which occurred at do clock this morning, resulting from sciatic rheumatism and other complications. Harriet Blanche Mclntvre was born in Wilton, Oct. 20, 1S..G, and there grew to womanhood. She was a graduate of the Wilton High school and also of the Wilton Collegiate in stitute. She was married Sept. 2, 1879, to Henry Lloyd Edgortrt. The union was a happy one and their married life was spent in Chicago, but Mr. Edgerton's health failed and he went to Arizona, hoping for a restoration, but it was oi no avail, ana ne aiea in t no-enix, 111 April, 1891. After her husband's death Mrs. Edgcrton made her home with her parents in this city. She had been in poor health for some time, but nothing immediately seri ous was feared until a few davs ago. She was bright, intelligent and hand some, and possessed those traits that endeared her in the hearts of all her associates. She was a member of the Presbyterian church, and held a high position iu social circles. Her loj-s will be mourned by her two little sons, Robert and-Harold, aged 10 find 13 years, respectively; also her parents, three brothers, Charles C, of Oskaloosa; James E.. of Colorado Springs; William.B.. of Hock Island, and one sister, Miss Marv, of this city. Errrtt. George Errctt died at Harlan. Iowa, Oct. 9. ng.id 79 years, ' 11 months and 11 days. He was born in Westmoreland county. Pa., Oct. 28, I814, and there he "passed his early life, removing with his familv to Rock Island county in 1852. March 10, 1870, he settled in Shelby county, Iowa, and has resided there continually ever since. Kanrrals.- The funeral of the late W. A. John ston was held from the Central Pres byterian church at o'clock this af ternoon and was largely attended. Rev. J. II. Kerr officiating. The pall bearers were: John Williams, J'. R. Lewis and John Paridon from Noble Lodge No. 1, A. O. U. W., and Wil liam Rinck, W. L. Sweeney and W. A. Guthrie from Rock Island lodge Xn. 18. I. O. O. F. The funeral of the late Lorenzo C. Elliott was held from his late home in Buffalo Prairie township yester day morning, and was one of the lar gest ever held iu the county, the pro cession being three miles long. The services were conducted bv Illinois City lodge, A. F. &, A. M., Capt. H. C. Cleaveland, of this city, officiating as worshipful master, a number of other Masons from Rock Island also attending. There were Masons pres ent from Andalusia. Pre-emption and Reynolds. Rev. Sallows, of Edging ton, conducted the religious exer cises. A Queer Provedure. The Union indulges in a queer pro cedure in its Sunday morning paper in referring to the injunction pro ceedings between the Tri-City Elec tric Sprinkler company and the Davenport & Rock Island Railway company in taking sides in an issue that is purely in the line of litiga tion. The Akgi s on Saturday inter viewed representatives of both com panies. Mr. Guyer on the part of the sprinkler company, and Mr. Lardner in behalf of the street car company, in order to present the matter faith fully and became assured that the proceedings, as was stated then, are entirely on interpretation of contract, Mr. Lardner in fact being particular to assure The Augls that there was no ill feeling between the two com panies, and desiring that nothing be said as coming from him that would indicate any unfriendliness on his part toward the other company. Both these institutions have given Rock Island such magnificent ser vice in their respective lines that the public can, without judging of a con troversy that involves purely legal controversies, only hope that it may be satisfactorily a'djusted. feeling as sured meanwhile that there is no likelihood but that we will have both the excellent street car service and the street sprinkling arrangement after the courts have passed upon the point at issue that has arisen as to a mere technicality in the contract be tween the two. Matters of law should not be tried in newspapers. OFFENSES TO DECENCY. The Moraine Taper Disci ImlnatWm With out m Difference. A remarkable freak in the way of consistency the Union becomes in its attempt to shield republicans for one offense against good order by accus ing them of a breach of the or dinary usages of common decency. inoneparagrapn in us sunuay issue, the morning paper feigns to depre cate the disgraceful incident on Mar ket square while the column was forming for Friday night's parade in honor of Vice President Stevenson and wherein a number of members of tne Horace Boies club of Davenport were made the victims of obnoxious missiles, which the Union says vere thrown by hoodlums, and in which it furthermore says: The club and its friends are justly indignant at this uncalled-for out rage, but not more so than the re publicans of Rock Island who have always been the earnest advocates of free speech and orderly assemblages, and who are doubly hurt that such a thing could be done in Rock Island, and the victims be visitors from a sister city." Supreme (.-onlftteacv. Mark the expression as to the re publicans of Rock Island always be ing the earnest advocates of ""free speech and orderly assemblages,' then let it be recalled that in its Sat urday's issue in referring to the im mense assemblage at Harper's theatre inc preceding evening, the Union assumed that the republicans in the autiiencc woulil get off some pecu liarly sioiiam i.is-os nctore which the applause would die away," and then again yesterday morning it sol emnly declares the hissing at Har- jer's theatre during ice President Stevenson's speech was perfectly right and proper." Yet the republicans of Rock Island "have always been the earnest advo cates of free speech and orderlv as semblages," to quote the Union's own utterance. This distinction with out a difference is somewhat difficult of comprehension, and it does look as if the republicans of Rock Island really cared for their reputation they had better suppress the Union, wnicn is itseir their worst accuser. Thk Alters has made no accusa tion as to who was guilty of flintrinir the eggs at the democratic column, nor has it attributed the disgraceful proceeding to any political partv. but it is, nevertheless, saiislied in its own mind that an individual so ill bred as to hiss a public speaker or even in his presence, and so unpatri otic as 10 snow so much disrespect to the vice president of the United states, no matter to what polit ical party he belongs, or under what auspices or conditions he speaks, would be guilty of throwing rotten eggs on th street, or of any other disreputable act. Put that in your pipe, Mr. Union. McCabe's 24th anniversary this week. McCabe's 24th anniversary this week. KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when ightly used.
