When he arrived there he wm informed that one of the party was dead! and he was re quested to hold an inquest no, to "sit upon the body." The accommodating 'squire complied with the request, called a jury, and then seated nimselt on tne corpse (?) What the verdict was we are unable to learn. A passenger who arrived on the evening Peoria train says that when the train passed the camp ground the whole party, with uncovered heads, was engaged burying the unfortunate youth and only his head was visible when the gentleman last looked. Later special dispatch: the body of the young man buried on Saturday was exhumed by some unknown person or per- sans during the night, and was carried off. "Uncle John's" demijohn or rather, the contents was found to be lowered about two inches; a horse and buggy is missing; the tracks lead to Kock Island, and but that is all known at present of the myste rious affair. A liberal reward has been offered for the apprehension of the parties engaged in the body snatching. Give the Colored Citizens a chance at - the Public Crib. An exchange in speaking of the neglect of the Republicans north to share the emoluments and rich spoils of government pap with "the colored man and a brother," stys The colored Republicans of Cincinnati are becoming restive. They do not like that basis of partnership which requires them to furnish all their votes to the party and get nothing ia retnrn. Ihey held "large and enthusiastic" meeting Tuesday night and took the matter into considers tion, They declared that "the colored voters of Cincinnati have been for a long time rallying to the support of white Re publican office-Beakers, depending on their fair promises of political recognition and proportionate representation, which prom tseshave been totally ignored;" that they nave not had a colored representative in a municipal office of trust or honor save cleaning sewers and the carrying of offa! from the polico stations;" and they resolv ed to "form a union of colored voters of Cincinnati for pushing competeut colored men to the front," aod pledged themselves to vote unitedly for representative color ed men." It seams, then, that while there may not be a color line in voting in Ohio, there is a vory distinct color line in office holding there. Just as Jolly in Petticoats. A queer affair was reported at this office. An elderly woman, with tears in her eyes, had a pitiful story to tell of how hard she was trying to raise her granddaughter in the path of rectitude. Thus far she has succeeded very well, but the young girl was up to so many tricks and ways of deception, that the old lady feared some- thing would happen one of these days. "The girl is too young to have a beau yet," said the grandmother, "and she is my son's child he is now dead and gone I don't want her to have company. One of her Sunday-Bchool class a young woman was coming round. Of course J. bad no objection. It was 9 o'clock before she came. There they were in the parlor alone, and about JO o'clock 1 thought the girls were rather late. I went down stajrs roftly and went to the key hole and list ened. Nothing was heard. I thought to myself that they had slipped out. 1 open ed the door and what do you think 1 saw? There sat one girl on the lap of the other girl, and I noticed the strange girl bad very short hair. They jumped up when I came in, and upon my honor l found out that ibe other woman was a young man j 1 t a. a w ureaaeu in woman 8 domes, l was so mad 1 could have scalded him to death. and would have done so, had he not rush ed out of the house.

Important telegrams still coming, an extra edition of The Argus will be issued at 8 o'clock this evening. The New Dummy Kallroad The Pro poaed Route from Moline to Milan. In conversation with an Argus reporter, the other day, C. II. Stoddard, who has the subscription books of the proposed dummy railroad from Moline to Milan, stated that about $30,000, of the $60,000 of stock, had been subscribed for but added that many persons who had advo cated the building of the road, and had promised to take stock, had now refused to do so. It is claimed that the dummies to be used on the road, should it be constructed, will bo so built tkat there will be no noise from escaping steam, either in starting or topping the cars; that they can be run faster; stopped as easy as horse cars, and can be run much cheaper. Mr. Stoddard says these dummies are now being used on various street car lines in Philadelphia and other eastern cities, and give entire satis faction horses paying no more attention to them than they do to the horse cars, The only question with those who invest their money in this enterprise will be will it pay? The routes for the proposed road are: From Milan across the city bridges; follow the Milan road up to the road which leads to the cemetery ; turn east on that road to the cemetery gate; then follow the bluff (or cemetery) road to the city, coming in on 12th street to fourth avenue; have a branch lead from here west on Fourth avenue to Weyerhauser & Denkman's saw mill; have the main line go east on Fourth avenue to 17th street, where a branch will go down 17th street to the ferry landing; then go east on Fourth avenue to 18th street; south on 18th street to Seventh avenue; then east on Seventh avenue to Moline. It is also proposed to run the lino from near the front of Dr. Gregg's place up the ravine in the' rear of his residence, coming out at the top of the bluff at Elm street, in Rodman's Sub division, and thence cn the bluff to Moline. Bat this route, Mr. Stoddard thinks, will not be agreed to although he would prefer it. as it would add to the value of his property on the bluff. Rock Island Board of Education Meet ing. The board of education met at S o' clock Saturday evening. Present, Messrs. S. WT. McMastcr, Dr. C. Truesdale. M. D. Merrill, J. M. Buford and Wm. H. Gest. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The following bills were presented and allowed: John Koch, repafriutr lucks S S 50 Weyerhauser & Denknian , lumber. 14 40 Peter Ward, drayuse 5 25 1,000 ou SI 00 10U 00 10 00 18 00 6 00 J. D.

Wm. H, Gest presented resolutions, which were adopted authorizing the issu ing of bonds to defray the coBt of building the new school house, $11,000, of which $3,000 are payable in three years, $3,000 in four years, and $5,000 in four year??, ail bearing 8 per cent, interest. Clark II. Connelly was elected as teacher in the High school seventh grade, and Bridget Cavaoaugh, Sarah Johnson, MioDie Bnggs and Jennie C. Woods to inter mediate departments, at a salary of $40 per month. On motion of Dr. C. Truesdale the presi dent and clerk were authorized to sign orders for the salaries of the superintendent, teachers and janitors monthly, as they fall due. The clerk was also authorized to com mence a new series of orders, after which the board adjourned to meet at call of president. The StrikeNotes around Town. Inquiry at the various railroad offices elicited no indication? of an immediate strike. At the C. B. & Q., Gen. Dana,superin tendent, apprehends no danger and says he has no bad men in his division, lie thinks the trouble at St. Louis is caused by outside men. At the Peoria everything is quiet, aod trains are moving regularly. No strike is feared on this line, as the men are paid higher wages than on any other road, and get their pay promptly each month. The Mercer County is running uninter ruptedly. No strike is likely to occur. On the Rock Island & Chicago no strike had commenced up to 4 o'clock, but ru mors were rife of an intended one to-night Inquiry among those supposed to know failed to authenticate the rumor, however, although it is likely to occur. A Solace for the Aged. In the decline of life, as the vigor of the system wanes, and infirmities attack it to which in early life it was a straneer, the use of a safe medicinal stimulant is highly advisable. Nothing, as experience shows, is so admirablo adapted to the wants of old people as Uostctter's Stomach Bitters. It is a real solace to the aged, and the best safeguard they can possibly use against the complaints to which they are peculiarly lia ble. It invigorates the body and cheers the mind, is pure, agreeable and effective. Rheumatism, lumbago and gout are more frequently developed in age than in youth or middle life. Ilostetter's Bitters are an excellent remedy for those painful disor ders, and also fortily the system against them. They never create undue excite ment, are gentle in their action, and are infinitely purer han the unmedioated sti mulants ot commerce. The Hillsaala Burglary.

During the night he dreamed that he could not tell a he and that he was honestly elected to thw office he now holds but he woke up in the mor ning and found it "but a dream. Last Tuesday a farm hand named Sleissman, employed by Thos. Boney, whose tarm lies some ten miles east ot Mua catine, received a severe kick Irom a vi cious house, which tore away the half of his face. He suffered terribly until Thursday night when death came to his relief. A Council Bluffs dispatch of Friday says that an unsuccessful attempt was made that evening to wreck the eastern- bound express on the Chicago. Rock Is land & Pacific Railroad, near Neola. Some rails and ties were thrown across the track, but were discovered before aoy damage was done, by the timely arrival of section men. The foreman of the grand jury at New Orleans, which presented the returning board s indictment, says the jury was composed of four democrats, four negroes and eight conservatives and liberals, The action was taken on their own voli tion. The testimony, he says, is plentiful, and is damaging to other prominent persons outside Louisiana. A fellow named John Hall snatched a watch from the pocket of Chas. A. C. Harris, of Montezuma, Iowa, while the latter was seated in a passenger car, over the river, Friday night. After an exciting chase Harris succeeded in capturing Hall, who was jailed. I he watch was tound in a yard, where the thief had thrown it. He has since been held under $1,200 bonds for trial The excursion to Muscatine on the Diamond Joe, Sunday, left this city at 10 o'clock arriving in that city about o clock.

When food was offered him he could not eat it, and was left to take care ot himself. The next, day he was found near the same place, literally dying ot starvation, and was con veyed at 1 1 o'clock to DeWitt, where he expired two hours afterwards, and was buried at six. lie was better clad than most of the tramps. Mrs. Lizzie M. Frame, by her attor ney, ueorge 1. lluboeu, jaq., enters suit in the District Court for a divorce from her husband, Banks frame, who is some where in Texas at present. The parties were married in Chicago, in February, 1873, and petition states that Banks deserted her in 18T5, and has ever since absented himself, and neglected to support her and their child, a daughter nearly 4 years old. She asks, on this showing, a divorce and cuotody of the child. M. V. Gannon, Esq., of Davenport has filed a petition, through his attorney, W. A. Foster, Esq., with the clerk of the circuit court, over the river claiming $5,000 damages from the city of Daven port for injuries received because of the city's negligence in failing to keep, on the 22d of December, 1876, and for weeks previous.

A Minneapolis man's cow has a jump ing calf that indulges in the pastime of climbing stairs and viewing the world from high windows and capering around over dangerous roofs. The call's mother re gards these eccentricities with aDxicty and astonishment much as the hen did her progeny, when her brood of ducks went splashing into the wster. The ownor would weight the calf down to its proper sphere, but he is curious to see what will come of it. It is quite probable that a oompetent zoologist would pronounce that Minneapolis calf to be an ambitous gam boling gnat The mother and the man had better reconsider the question of identity. Another Republican offioe holder in Iowa has turned out to be a defaulter. In formation received from Cresco, the coun ty seat of Howard county, whose Treasu rer has figured disgracefully of late in a sham drowning case, and was subsequently seen fleeing for parts unknown, is to the effect that after two days' incessant drill ing upon the safe, it was opened, revealing to Kyte's bondsmen the sum of $60.10. The report of the Treasurer June 1, 1877, showed a surplus of $14,000 on hand- The examination of the books will probably disclose even a greater deficiency to his as tonished bondsmen. Kyte was known as a "good fellow" with all the meaning which the term implies. He was free with mon ey, weather it waa his own or other peo ple'sit made no difference. He is a mar ried man, respectably connected, but be came entwined in the toils of one or more woman outside of bis family, who proved his downfall, crusing him to feign being drowned, rob the county safe, and flee the country.

Moline has caught the infection of the eastern strikers, and Saturday night and bunday secret meetings of laboring men were Held to canvass the situation and con aider the feasibility of striking here. The first fruits of these meetings became ap parent this morning when the time came for wOrk to commence at the Moline Wagon Co's shops.- A reporter for the Argus called upon the officers of th agon Co. this morning and elicited the following: R. It is reported upon the streets this morning that your employe have inaugurated a strike. Is it true Officer Yes. R. What was the occasion or tnis movement t umcer a proposed reduction of wages on a portion of our workmen. We have been for several months paying 25 to aO per cent, higher for common laborers thau other manufac tories io Moline; we were also paying some ot the men more wages than others i ? it , , ana in me proposed reduction it was our purpose to equalize the matter and cut only those who were receiving the highest wages. We have been paying roust-abouts $1.30 per day of 10 hours, whereas Detre & Co. have been paying but $1,17, and jveaier con nave a number of men working 11 hours per day for $1.
