About 9 o'clock the members of the Rock Island Light Artillery Company assembled at the soldiers' monument in Court Square and neatly deoorated the shaft, While this was going on Dr. Gregg ar rived, and, mounting the ladder, placed a handsome wreath about the shoulders of the figure on top of x the monument. This was a gift of Mrs. Col. Flagler, Mrs. Brown Mapes, of Moline, also pre sented a wreath to the artillery company which was placed upon the brow of the figure. About 10.30 a train of four coaches and four box oars arrived over the Peoria road, crowded with excursionists from Galva, Cambridge, and other places be tween this city and there. The excur siou was in charge of Messrs. M. Skim- mons and S. Rockwell, of Cambridge, and the proceeds of the affair will be given to the Methodist church at Cambridge, ihe excursion numbered about 450 people. It was met at the train by Dr, Greg and A, K. Philleo, and about one- half of the crowd proceeded to Court Square where about 100 people had al ready assembled around the monument. After the firing of a salute by the artillery company, Dr. Gregg mounted a gun car riage and called the meeting to order, and then introduced Rev. H. M. Lancy, of the Fifth Avenue M. E. church, who made a short prayer. Dr. Gregg then made a short speech In opening his remarks he said that it might be all very well for Davenport, and Iowa people generally, and also for tMo- line people, to decorate the graves in the national cemetery at Rock Island Arse nal, but his first love was to decorate the monument er acted in memory of 413 brave men from Rock Island county He said that not one man buried at Rock Island Arsenal was from this city or county they were either Iowa men who died at CamD McClellan or were negro iruardsof the Confederate prisoners on the Island and nct one-third had ever been near enough to a battle to smell powder. He meant no disrespect to the dead but he believed the first duty of the people of this county was to decorate to the mem ory of their own heroic dead. He closed by introducing Rev. J. R, Findley, of the Central Presbyterian church, who pro- nounsed a benediction. After the benediction, and before the crowd had time to disperse, Dr. Gregg stated that he had been requested to open the meeting again. and then followed short speeches from Capt. L. M. Haver- stick, Rev. Nisbet, of the Baptist church, and State Senator Moderwell, of Henry county, after which the meeting closed again. After dinner, the Galva and Cambridge excursionists boarded their tram and were taken across Sylvan Water bridge to Rock Island Arsenal, where they partici pated in the exercises at the national cemetery. AT ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL. 1 The programme for proceedings at the national cemetery, at Rock Island Ar senal, was published in The Argcs some days ago, and we suppose was carried out this afternoon, though we cannot give de tails to-day without keeping back our paper to a late hour. We will give parti culars to-morrow. IX DAVENPORT. At Oakdale Cemetery in Davenport the graves of Major Chas. Foster. Col. Wentz and Capt. Slaymaker were decorated with evergreen wreaths, and the grave of the gallant Col- William Hall, of the Eleventh Iowa Infantry, was decorated with an ele gant wreath of flowers and handsome bou quets. 1 his grave was decorated by Col. Hall's daughter.Elsie,of this ity. These, we think, are all the soldiers' graves iu Oakdale Cemetery. How Railroads Are Assessed for Tax- ! ' ' '" ation. Last week, in a short note, we stated that Mr. P, L. Cable, owner of the Rock sland & Mercer county railroad had filed a map (drawn by Mr. Henry Harrison, one of his clerks and a draughtsman) in our county clerk's office showing the line of the road in this county, length, width, amount on which taxes should be paid. etc., The following te a copy of - the table attached to the map: BLACK HAWK. TOWNSHIP Right of way Mam tract Sidetrack Depot building BOWLING TOWNSHIP Right of way Main track. Side tracks Depot buildings , BDOINGTON TOWNSHIP. Right of way Mam iracK... Side track Depot building Total i feet. ! 29.557 at 522 Total ! acres. 50,00-100 12,796: 38,07-100: 1,33s' 21.177 492 49,08-100 Total value. 2,024.00 14,778 50 261.00 400.00 1,283.00 6,898.00 669 00 800 00 1,961.00 10,538.50 246.00 131,70-100 $43,101.00 Total...., The amount listed by Mr. Cable, for taxation, is 50 cents a foot for the road bed, ties, rails, bridges and fence, or, in other words, 50 cents a foot for the im provements, and $40 an acre for the land outside of the improvements. This is at the same rate as the second track on the C.R. I. & P. R. R. was taxed for last year and is over three times the rate that the Peoria road and the St. Louis road paid taxes on last ye-r. This week another map and table, pre pared by Ben T. Cable, was filed in Mer cer county, covering the property of the road in that county. Both maps are good specimens of draughting and map making, but we understand that Mr. Harrison rather thinks Ben has executed the best job, though they are both very good The length ot main track in Rock Island county (including 4 miles oyer the P, & R, I. R. R.) is 16 miles. In Mercer county 10 miles. The right of way, main and side tracks improvements, etc., in Mercer, foots up $34,035.00. The company owns one locomotive listed at $4,500,00; one passenger and baggage car, combined, $1,500 total $6,000. The proportion of this sum listed for taxation in this county is $3,G92,00 aud in Meicer $2,308,00. Returns are made, by the county clerks, of the amount listed by each railroad com pany in each county to the state board of equalization, and the state board fix the final figures, as to the board shall seem just and right, taking into account every thing connected with thi value of the property on which taxes are to be paid. The Fire Cracker Nuisance. The National Board of Underwriters, of New York, is bold enough to disagree with old John Adams ks to the ui tde of cele brating th '"glorious Fourth." and sendsl out broadcast over the land circulars ask ing the various city sounciU to prohibit the use of fire crackers on the -'nation' birth day." They aim more at fire crackers and squibs than at the rockets and candles. Whether it is agreeable to the small boy or not. the suggestion and plan is a sensi-; ble one. Rock Island has an ordinance for bidding the burnin of these missiles in the street, aui has had for these many years. but it was never enforced until last year, when Mayor Butler took commendable measures to enforce, it, and it was pretty well done, thoueh not auite as strbtly as it should hsve been. However, a good beginning was made, and this year we hope to see him put ou the brakes and stop the whole nonsense. The Board of Under writers, in their report, say: From inquiries instituted by 493 insur ance companies. ao0 c.uer engineers and 771 chiefs of police, the loss by conflagra tion directly traceable to fire crackers since January, 1865, is estimated at $20,000,000; two conflagrations alone aggregated a total loss of $15,000,000. The value of tire- works of American manufacture sold from 1866 to 1876 amounted to $2.556. 000, and the invoice value ot the fire crackers im ported since 1865 is less than $1,500,000, but the repoit says: "We find that ou one day only of the present year the lias occa sioned by these incendiaries amounted to twenty-five per cent, of the tnnl invoice value of all imported in 1875." There port adds that every dollar's worth of lira crackers imported into this country has oc casioned a direct loss by fire of more than one hundred dollars, and the query h pro pounded: "Is not $154,574.16 tev. -re tax upon insurance capital for the gratification of juvenile patriotism ?"

Last evening a man named James Clark, about 30 years of age, und a section hand on the Peoria road, complained to Policeman Gorman that Jack Johnson, of Milan, an engineer out of employment, had robbed him of $17. After questioning the man closely Gorman was convinced that be was lying to him, and on calling Deputy Mar shall Blackburn, that officer was also con vinced that there had been no robbery. Ho took Clark down to the Peoria depot and searched him, finding nothing. They then blurted after Johnson, Clark lagging behind. Capt. Blackburn seemed to have an eye over bis shoulder, for he soon saw Clark have something iu his bands aud quick as a cat he turned and seized him by the hands and found bis money. He was jailed aud this uioruiug taken before Jus tice Hayden. ior some lime be protested that Johnson had robbed him, but finally, after having contradicted himself many times in his answers to questions from the officers, be made the following confession: A Card.
