The recent determination of the Western 1'assenpor association to inu r,7. le the ticket scalping business by instructing conductors on all linos within its jurisdiction to take up all tiiileuc books when not pre sented by nno who could prove hi Ml self the original purchaser, has occa sioned no little amount of unpleas- antries oelween ticket punchers ana travelers. A conductor on the Uock Island & l'coria road cornered the son of Martin Kinsman, tho big plow luaniiiacturcr, in a pretty cute man tier the other day while the train was waiting at the depot. J he young man gulled out a mileage book bear ing the signature of Mr. Hammond, a prominent citizen of Peoria. "Are you Mr. Hammond?" asked the conductor. Yes sir," replied the young man. Then the traveler was asked if he had anything by which to prove his identity. Ho answered negatively. The conductor was still contiJcut that ho was being hoodwinked; he wanted to satisfy himself one way or the other. A man well acquainted in Peoria passed throug toe car. the conductor knew him. You are of course acquainted with Mr. Hammond," spoke up the conductor. Why, certainly," came the reply; is tie on tue train.' ' Then the conductor smil.-d a smile of satisfaction.

The Moline Cycle clcb holds a road race over the Moline-Barstow course this afternoon. Only members of the club will be alio we'd to ride. Neither the Y. M. C. A. nor the Island Citv Cvcle clabs are doing much riding the past few weeks as the weather has been too warm, but the next couple cf months will be ideal ones for count touring. Harry Simmon, of the People s National bank, it one of the most en thusiastic cyclists in Rock Island, lie bcin always ready to take a rule any pla e at any time. the National 1- A. . meet com- mences at Louisville Aug. 10, and all the old members of the league will be in attendance and shake the hand of "Grandpa" Bassett, who has never missed a national meet. Never in the history of the bicvele business has there been as niauy failures as there has been the past month. This is dne to over produc tion and lack of capital. Too many small concerns rushed into the busi ness with nothing to inn on but wind. Messrs. Jacquct and ltodgcr.s, who were here in the interest of the Au burn Cycle company the past week. hive returned to Chicago. r. S. Newcomb, of Omaha, who has been in tb city the past week visiting with John llyncs, left for Chicago last Wednesday to make a short stav before returning home. Kouls Brookman. who got thrown from his wheel while traiuin on the South Uock Island track Thursday evening and had his collar boue broken, will hardly ba in shape to race any more this s-ason. William Class ma le a trip to Al pha awhee'. Coasting matches are all the rage in the eastern cities. Rock Island has a good course for such a pastime on Twentieth street, but whether it would be advisable to recommend it to thf; use of wheelmen for such pur poses is a iiestion which the author, ities can best determine. The hill would make a beauty for coasting parties, and there is hardly any doubt, but what it could be used at intervals if riders would rfrain from abusing the privileges, as is too often the case. There was a light flickering in the windows of two Kock Island homes later than usual the other night, and acquaintances of the voung lady and gentleman who are now becoming aware of the fact that thev were obliged to walk several miles along side their wheels are having a little fun at their expense. The couple were crossing tho Milan bridges when the lady's wheel was punc tured, j ncy walked over to the old Sears flour mill, where for an hour the voung man worked over the damaged bike. Finally the journey was resumed, but before they had gonj far the same tiro exploded. Toe repairing material had leen ex hausted; so it was a case of walk The night was very warm, and when the young lady rang the door bell of tier home she could bear the clock inside pealing forth the hour of 2.

Silvia a Killing Trlbate. The republican county committee at its meeting at the Harper yes- icruay aucrnoon just before adjournment adopted the fol lowing resolution in relation to the death of ex-Sheriff T. S. Silvis, an evidence of recogni tion which should be all the more appreciated because it comes from those who, while politically opposed to the man, it nevertheless bears appreciation of a trnly noble charac ter tnat challenges the admiration of all: Whereas, We have learned with profound Borrow of the late demise of our esteemed fellow citizen, T. S Silvis, ex-sheriff and ex-chairman of the democratic county committee; a man who, though a political oppon ent, was alwavs fair and honorable in his opposition, and whom we rec ognized as an exceptionally con scientious ana emcicnt sheriff, and possessed in an unusual degree of all ihe sterling qualities of American msnhooif; therefore be it Resolved, By the republican county committee, that we ettend to the grief stricken family of the de ceased our hrartfelt sympathy in their bereaveiuent and assure them that we in common with all who knew him share in their sorrow, and deeply regret his nntimcly decease.

OHLY rOUS ACTUAL AFPROAOBES. rhe Danger or Farther Uelay Distinctly fainted Oat Cocroaehmeut That Have toe a Blade Tear by lur-lhe Coancll'e Fiaiu Uaty. "Do you know that there are but four actual approaches left to the river, and that if the council does not act without further delay they win ue g-one pernaps. ' asked a citi zen who has not heretofore spoken on the levee subject, of an Atot! representative. "Aow you go along the riverfront. Commence at Twentieth. There was a time when you could .get down to the river there, but you can't now. Then go on to Nineteenth and you win see now steatnly, but steadily the encroachment has advanced: you scarcely can provide a steam boat landing there now. So that counting Nineteenth the only streets that cau oe put through aud s-raded down to the water line are in num ber, including also Eighteenth and the two Seventeenths. It is indeed time for the council to act in this matter." A Valuable Suceestlun. "Now Col. King has an appropria tion to dredge out our harbor in cluded in the last river and harbor bill, but what use is a harbor if we do not have a good levee wharf? Boats are goiag to tie np where the ba.iness is, where commerce can reach them. If the city is determ ined to go ahead with the levee it can arrange, I bencve, with Col. King in this improvement by which it can use the material which he takes out of the river bed in improv ing the harbor. All these things can be made to work together for the public good it tho aldermen but put their shoulders to the wheel, as 1 be lieve now they are determined to." 'TWILL BE A SIGHT TO SEE. Meteoric Shower 1'rmiileert liy Aatronn- were Karly Ntxt Week. It is presumable that the shower of living meteorswhich it is predicted will bombard the earth about Mon day, Aug. lu, will be visible in Uock Island provided of course the skv in clear. Astronomers tell us that tb- sky will be veined with streaks of light as the stars shoot through the atmosphere, but the scige will be raised before the meteoric combat ants get within bailing distance. Some of the meteors joining in the fusillade mav hurl the chips from their shoulders to the earth. None of the shooters, however,- will come nearer this plain t than 75 miles, though they may leave a few rem iniscences of their visit behind them. Astronomers have scheduled the meteoric shower for Aug. 10, but, al though they have inside information, the arrangements may be upset any moment. The earth is doing the nest it can to hasten the event by traveling toward the stream of me teors at the rate of is miles a second. In fact two ot the advance agents of the heavenly visitants have already made their appearance. lite was seen by Prof. W. K. Brooks, of the Smith observatory. Ceneva, N. Y., last Tuesday, as it was taking a peep at the moon. 1'art ol another me teor recently fell to the earth in Mexico, with such terrilic force that it penetrated 7KI feet through rock and noil. A clear atmosphere will be all that is needed to enable anv one to see the futile bombardment of the stars. Bnt thousands of nietoors will shoot toward the earth in the daytime, thus interfering with a con tinuous performance. August and November are chosen every year for tho threatening but harmless fusilade. The most bril liant meteoric shower only occurs every 33 years, and is not due until 1898"or 1899. The August display is only a side show compared with tbe shower which takes 33 years to get nere. Observers will get plenty of chances to wish, however, whenever they see a shooting star within the next four or live davs. DAVENPORT DEMOCRACY.
