In this connection the article in the Union of this morning, reflecting on R. II. Moore, is at once cowardly and mean and canuot help .make him friends where it was in tended to crush him. Legitimate compe tition in business is part of the laws of trade and can only be overcome by up right, honorable means, not through the contemptible channel resorted to by tha Union. Mr. Moore, of the Review may not be a brilliant writer, and perhaps has committed some trifling mistakes, but it does not follow that he should be abused, condemned and slandered because of a mistake of the "head and uot of the heart." It will not accomplish the object intended, however, and will make Mr. Moore solid friends among that class of men who detest a mean action and are always ready to coudenio those who seek to aoojmplish mercenary ends ,by ruining a fellow. com petitor. The Union will discover when too late that it has made a grave mistake in attacking Mr. Moore's character instead of meeting him like an honorable business competitor. It seeks to convey an insinu ation which it is too cowardly to openly charge. Such cowardly attacks never yet injured a man, and especially in this case will it react on the Union, as its motives in making the attack are so well under stood.

It would be a fortune to its possessor. You can stand on any corner in Moline and see a score of the kind of men the Union describes, Poor boy. Why don't some candidate ask him to "take suthin'?" 4About a week ago George Koenigs oechen, the popular driver of car No. 1, said good bye to the Doys and left for Mus catine. This would be nothing unusual. but then George was so happy over it. He seemed to be full of business. This, with several mysterious purchafes of goods not generally needed by a single man, led to the supposition that he was about to be come a Benedict. The theory proved correct, for last night George returned looking somewhat ' jaded" but good uatured as ever but not alone. The young couple have gone to housekeeping and George says "he dou't know how that was." But here drops the curtain on the peaceful ecene. May they live long and prosper.

No one saw him fall? but when discovered, his position indicated that he bad fallen backwards and turned a complete summersault. He was ren dered uncouscious by the fall and remained in that condition for over an hour, but, strange to say, his broken leg was not in jured, nor did he sustain any serious in jury otherwise.
