KENWOETHY & BEABDSLEY, THE SLANDERS OV THE BLONDE LITTLE SHEET They are Bepeated by the Chicago Times to the Injury of Bock Island. The itemizer for the Chicago Times, of yesterday, says : The citizens of Rock Island have arrived at toe conclusion that their police department la utterly corrupt, and more than suspect that the whole city government is about as bad. This is a very serious charge to make. and in a paper having the circulation of the Chicago Times it becomes a very dam- aeiriK one. It affects the honor, the integ rity, the good name, the prosperity ot all our people. The charge is false in every particular. The citizens of Rock Island have arrived no such "conclusion," nor is there the Cowardice and Inefficiency. From the Chicago Times. The business of robbing railway trains seems to have become a regular profession. Within a very short time three trains have been stopped,their mails and express pack ages rifled and their Dassengers plundered. In all these instances, the strength of the robbers has been ridiculously disproportion ate to that ot the robbed. In the last case, at Gad's Hill, in Missouri, five bri gands first captured and robbed everybody at the station, and then proceeded to stop, overpower, and plunder a train wnicn car ANNOUNCEMENTS.

Peoria Democrat. at slightest ground for arriving at any such conclusion and the Times does great in justice to the people of this city by making itself a vehicle to promulgate the viletalse hoods of Levi Michael Haverstick, the ed itor of the Union, a man who has rea sons for not liking the people of Rock Isl and or their city government. Levi Michael has a horror of all police men because one of them kicked him into the gutter, That man was an unsuitable man for the position of policeman, and he has been removed from office and we hear that he has left town. But because we happened to get one unsuitable man on the police force (who has been removed) is that any reason why Levi Michael should slander the wlme force? Levi Michael has a reason for r.ot liking the mayor, for the mayor detected him in collecting the same bill twice from the peo ple's treasury, and exposed him. lhe mavor also turned him out of the position of one of the Directors in the Library Board. Of course he don't like the maj or, and thinks the whole city government corrupt because he v a detected In collect ing a bill twice! Levi Michael don't like Rock Island. Mr. (Jrant kicked him out of the post office, and the people seemed rather glad of it. Of course he don't like Rock Island and will do what he can to injure our people but ought the limes to aid him in his slander ous efforts ? Our people think not. The citizens of Rock Island never had so reputable, honest, sober and efficient a po lice department as the present year. No vear can be cited when so few crimes have been committed here or when the crimi nal classes have been so closely watched. The only disreputable man on the police force was denounced and exposed by The ABACS and has, since, been removed, ami it was not done until The ARdVS did denounce him and demand his removal is to the city government, we never had a better one. At the close ot this ad ministration the city debt will be less than at its beginning. Our taxes have been re duced one-half ; our streets and alleys have been kept in better and cleaner order than ever before ; no virulent diseases or epi demics have prevailed during the year : order and health everywhere preserved. and the credit of the city never better. Sai'ce- Elsewhere will be found the advertisement of Heslop's Woteestershirc sauce, the famous Baltimore relish, which nrecludes the necessity tor any made sauces or gravies and is also an excellent ingredient to add to them when they are made. It is a delicious zest for all meats, game and fish and is also a magnificent stomachic, superior to any of the rojatious bitters so extensively advertized.

One but ternut surrounded and guarded the 10 or 15 inhabitants of the station. Another guarded one side of the train, and a third, the other side. The fourth brigand cap tured and took possession of the three or four men who had charge of the mails, ex press matter, and baggage. The fifth man entered the cars, overpowered the 27 able bodied passengers, and insulted, and bul lied, and relieved them of their cash. watches, and jewelry at his leisure, and with perfect impunity. The Irish sol dier who '-surrounded and toot prisoner seven of the foe, was a no-account strate gist an il hero enmnared with these butter D . . nuts, who surprised and guarded a smau town,a railway train,and robbed everybody, and all at the same time. The somewhat notorious cat's-tail strategist would not have undertaken to do the same job with less than a thousand men in action, and from one to two thousand in reserve. It is a somewhat significant fact that the only two countries in which the stopping and forcible robbery by armed men ot rail way trains prevails are &pam anu me United States. Enlightened citizens of this great and glorious republic hold them selves a peg or two above the effete and priest-ridden Spaniard. We felicitate our selves on having the greatest and best gov ernment under the sun. A government, like a tree, is known by its fruits ; and one of the legitimate fruits of a good government is, or should be, order. That is just what we have not. Usurpation sits at the head ot many ot tne states oi me south ; and nowhere does any great num ber of government officials feel bound to be honest unless it be tnat tnere is noining for them to steal. I his robbery ot mail trains could not occur under a government that caused itself to be respected. Spain has the excuse that it has now no govern ment ; that it is torn by tierce dissensions ; that anarchy has possession of its powers. In the case ot both fcpain and tins country, the conclusion is a fair One that such out rages indicate a weak, inefficient, and con temptible administration of public affairs. Meanwhile, the charm, the romance, the entire absence of risk or present danger or subseouent capture and punishment," the amount of booty realized are certain to make this species of brigandage a favorite and popular oue. We shall expect to see revived the chivalrous Claude Duvals, the Dick Turpins, the Jack Shepherds, whose operations will include the railway coach in place of the stage-coach ; and who will pursue the business with all the more zest now that there is no hanging for robbery, ami that thev have onlv to canter down among their friends on the Missouri bot tom, in order to enjoy complete safety. The Iowa robbers were known ; they were traced to their lair in Missouri: and then, owing to the presumed courages! the com munity in which they hid tuemseives tne whole state of Missouri did not dare to at teutit to arrest them. l ake the whole ot tins Business, ana n is throughout very contemptible.

Its symptoms are al most infinite in their variety, and the for lorn and despondent victims of the disease often fancy themselves the prey, in turn, of every malady This is due, in part, to the close sympathy which exists between the stomach and the brain, and iu part also to the fact that any disturbance of the di gestive function necessarily disorders the liver, the bowels and the nervous system, and effects, to some extent, the quality of the blood. E. F. Kunkel's Bitter Wine of Iron is a sure cure. This is not a new preparation, to be tried and found wanting ; it has been prescribed daily for many years in the practice of eminent physicians with unpar relled success ; it is not expected or in tended to cure all the diseases to which the human family is subject, but is warranted to cure Dyspepsia tn the most obstinate form. Kunkel's Bitter Wine of Iron nev er fails to cure. Symptoms of Dyspepsia are loss of appetite, wind and rising of the food, dryness ot the mouth, heartburn, distention of the stomach and bowels, con stipation, headache, dizziness, sleepiness and low spirits.

Judge Murphyv the Davenport Mayor, and Scott county Senator, will get puffed up with pride if he has many more com pliments like the following, from the lady correspondent of the Dubuque Times: ''The handsome man and scholar on the Democratic side of the Senate, is Senator Murphy, Mayor of Davenport.

Using up John Cleland's Farm. The I 'nion devotes seven Hues to the de cision of Judge Pleasants in the contested election case of John 11. Cleland, vs, Sam uel R. Porter. Possibly some of the rea ders of that sheet may desire to know more about the case than can be told in seven lines, if they dt they will find the inform ation they desire in The Arui s. Possi bly some of the benighted readers of that carelessly edited concern would like to know the reasons given by the Judge for sustain ing Porter. If they do they will have to look in Tue Altars for them the Union doesn't possess sufficient energy to furnish them and we doubt if the Union Cle land clique would like their dupes to see them. The seven line article of the Union on this case closes as follows : An appeal will be taken to the Supreme Court and it tue decisiott U reversed trial will be had in the court below. (Vn 'if' is still a big thing with these fel lows. Judire Pleasants.in his decision, re marked that the "it" still remains, and we say, if the Union -clique and the lawyers can make a tool of Johu Cleland long enough they will use up his farm, and fail to get him the office after all. Without a single peg to stand on, they have the assurance to ask the courts to put them in possession of an office that the people refused to give them. They seem to be under the ini impresdion that this is Louisiana! and that Durrell is Judge ! They never were more mistaken in their lives, one-half the taxes assessed under the late Republican mayor, and that too without increasing its indebtedness ! If that is an evidence of corruption it would be a bles sing to have some of that sort of corrup tion in Mr. Grant's administration ' The citizens of Rock Island do not thank the Timet itemizer for slandering them, and we suggest to him that he can find more reliable sources of information than Levi Michael Haverstick to draw up on concerning this locality.
