Saturday, May 17, 1884. An Elevator. In the near future we are told, that Mr. Ben Harper, the genial host of the popu lar Harper house, will place an elevator in his hotel. With this improvement, Rock Island would have a hotel, which for accommodations and completeness, conld not be surpassed in the western country. A Circus. Wood la! we are to have a circus. The f advance agent of S. A. Barrett & Co'.'s New United States KaUroad shows, was here yesterday and took out a license to show in this city on June 6th. This will be the first show of the season, and no doubt will be liberally patronized. A Barked Tree. One of the hackmen hitched his team to a tree in Union square yesterday, and went away. While he was gone one of the horses bit off a lot of the tree in such a manner that it will cause the tree to die. This is an outrage, and it is to be hoped the hackman if he can be found, will be severely fined. A Platform -The workmen have torn up the plat form that used to run along the south side of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy depot. This platform was torn up, so a new switch could be built to the ice house. The Workmen are now busy grading and putting down the ties for this new switch. River Hipleta The Springer, the new boat on the Saints' line, from the Ohio river, is not such a fast boat after all, judging from the way in which the Mary Morton is leading her. The Springer left St. Louis one hour after the Morton, but the latter boat reached Rock Island at noon yester day, the Springer arriving five hours later. Boating. These are nice nights and the young - people and taking advantage of the fact and are enjoying themselves. A great many of them go out promenading while a number go out boat riding. The latter is quite an enjoyable way of enjoying one's self. These moonlight nights are very prolific in love matches, the fruits of which will be seen in vears to come. The Sisters. There were only a few of the ladies of Rock Island attended the meeting held at the Harder house yesterday for the pur J pose of-iioing something to retain the hospital and the Sisters here. There was '., time enough given. We hope that another meeting will be held, and the aim for which it is called, meet with success. Fishing. Te9terday Messrs. C. B. Marshall, George Gray, and R. N. Reece went out to Rock river on a fishing expedition. They started early in the morning and stayed until the shades of evening, and had B most glorious day of sport . They succeeded in catching any amount of fish. Aa Mr. Marshall was the only married gentleman in the party, the other boys turned their fish over to him. T- - A New Hello Girl Miss Carrie Ohlweiler has resigned the position of night operator at the central telephone office. Miss Grace Aster will in the future fill her place, and will, we predict give entire satisfaction to the patrons of the exchange. We are sorry to lose Miss Ohlweiler, for she has proven an efficient operator, and her many friends wQl be sorry to learn that she is to leave the city for Muscatine, Iowa, where she has secured a much better position .

This morning Dr. Thos. Gait and wife, and their sons, Lee and John Gait, re turned from Colorado Spring, accom panied by Hiram Cable, son of R. R. Cable, president of the Rock Island & Peoria railroad. Dr. Gait was seen by an Abqcs reporter this afternoon. He is looking exceedingly well, and says that the trip was also very beneficial to his wife, who is now much improved in health. We are pleased to know this fact, as are many of the friends of the doctor and his amiable wife. Street!. The road and streets on Third avenue between Twentieth and Twentyfourth streets are being fixed up. The workmen have been engaged since Thursday in putting rock on the streets, and in pound ing it up into small pieces. Here is the solution of a problem that has long been giving the good citizens of the town much worry. Let every tramp that the police can catch be put to work pounding rock on the streets. If this is done the tramps will give this city a wide berth, something that all of us will be glad of. Fred Krell, the restaurant man on Second avenue, is having a new walk put down in front of his store, this is some thing that has long been needed. Notice. As my doctors agree that I must quit smoking, also business, or die some duy before I have time to pull my boots on. (Now I do not propose to do either.) But what I want, is, all persons knowing themselves indebted to me, to call and settle the same at my office, before June 1st." AU unpaid principals and interest due on notes, call at Mitchell & Lynde's brink and settle. Any one having any claims against mc will present them at my office. If I am compelled to pass in my checks I want to leave my estate in shape that pirates, praying hypocrites, and blackmailing shyster lawyers cannot rob ft 8 they have me. My real estate in Bock Island is all for sale. For par ticulars After Jane 1st inquire of my son or E. M. Sweeney, postomce block 17d6t O. J. Dimick. W. W. Bowlby relumed from Proph etstown and Erie last evening, where he had been on business. He sold five pianos fn the above named towns during his absence. A Picnic. If you want to see a happy set of inno cent little toddlers, ranging all the way up from four to twelve years old, just take a walk around Union square about four o'clock in the afternoon. There are about twentyfive children who congregate there and hava a regular picnic playing on the grass. It is a pleasant sight to see them play and enjoy themselves in their innocent way. Circuit Court. Circuit court has been going along in the usual tenor of its way all this week. A number of the old cases which have been standing on the docket have been disposed of. The jury in the case of Ross & Rice, for use, v John Clark et al, came in this morning and returned a verdict for the defendant. The court adjourned at noon today until 2 o'clock Monday afternoon, when a new set of jurors will be sworn in. Everts Commandery. Everts Commandery, No. 18, Knights Templar, expect to have a big time next Wednesday, at which time work will be performed on the Red Cross and Templar degrees. It is expected that Louis K Storkel, Grand Sword Bearer of the Grand Commandery of Illinois, and inspector for this district will be present to confer the degrees. Singers. Yesterday evening our citizens were treated to some fine singing by a strolling band of Italian girls. There were three girls in the party. The eldest girl bad only one arm, the next oldest had two arms and played an accordion, while the smallest girl, a little midget, took up the collection. The largest girl done the singing and she bad one of the finest voices we ever heard. They serenaded every store on Nineteenth street, and of course were well rewarded for their music. The Firemen. The boys of the Rescue Hose company have been engaged in repainting and cleaning up their fire engine. It now looks as fresh as a daisy and will loom up immense in the parade next Thursday. The Rescue boys are an energetic set of lads, and deserve great prisse. Not to be behind any of the rest of the boys the Holly Hose company boys have new suits. The suits fit like paper on the wall. The caps are regulation caps, and set the suits off to perfection. The Holly boys are a genial set, as happy as the days are long, and when it comes to getting to a fire, the are ribt there on the double ouick. A Chase. A commercial man and a girl were rid ing in a hack last night, making Home howl, as it were. A peeler gave chase to the hack, told the hackman to stop or he would make a sieve out of him. The hackman, who didn't want to go heaven not just then anyhow, stopped. But the drummer was not to be caught. He made a leap out of the carriage, but in doing so ripped a pair of new pants in such a manner that they won't be fit to wear any more, but all the same made his escape, The peeler only wanted the drummer, so he let the girl and the hackman go. The drummer is a Chicago man, and represents a wholesale boot and shoe house. Guess his name. Oypiy Jock Old Gypsy Jack struck town yesterday. Gypsy Jack is a noted character in police circles. In the sere and melancholy leaf he used to give the police no end of trouble . He was engaged in nearly every devilment that turned up. He has been arrested a number of times for horse stealing. About four years ago Jack went off. The police didn't know where he was, and carediess. The town was better off without him, and the more he stayed away the better pleased they were. But now he has returned. But he isn't the same Jack any more. Some time ago he got in a row and the other fellow gouged one of his eyes out. This left Jack with only one eye, but he had life left, and as he dtdn'l care anything for beauty, it mat -tered little to him, whether school kept or not so he breathed, lived and had bis being. He told us confidentially this morning that he had reformed and was going to lead a new life. If be will only try, we stand ready to aid him with our prayers. Another Candidate. Truly the uncertainty and doubt exist ing in politics is very great. Several weeks ago, yea, even before the snow had disappeared from the hilltops, had Capt. H. C. Cleaveland announced himself as a candidate for the legislature subject to the decision of his republican friends in convention assembled. For weeks and weeks he had undisputed way in the leg islative field, and he was just beginning to congratulate himself that he would have no opposition, and that he would hold down the same seat in the state hall at Springfield which he did last year, when lo, and behold there comes a dark vision across his path, and a citizen from the rural districts has shied his caster in the ring, and announces his determination to smote the captain right and left. The man who has thus dared to beard the lion in his den, so to speak, is W. F. Crawford, who has a domicile in the town of Edging ton. Crawford comes to the front, not with a faint heart, but proclaims in tones loud and long that he will have Cleaveland's scalp dangling at his belt before many moons We sympathize with the captain in bis deep affection. It is no small matter to have one's heart set on some coveted prize, and then when it is almost within his grasp, to have some one step between and pluck the dainty morsel. But we would advise Cleaveland not to despair. Let him take fresh courage, and brace np bis spine. Let him sharpen up his weap ons of war, and then enter the ring with a whoop that will strike terror and dismay to the heart of his country adversary We give this advice to Cleaveland for we know he is in dire distress, and needs assistance. The Union is loud in its praise of his opponent and tells of his heroic deeds in the dark hours of the war. If it comes to the worst we will publish the captain's record, and then the Union will be sorry tnat they said anvtning about fighting and Crawford's prowess. The FiiUvaL . There was a large attendance at the flower festival at the Central Presbyterian church last night. The good ladies of that church had left nothing undone that would aid to the programme of the even ing,' and as a matter of course, all who attended enjoyed themselves in a huge manner. The ice cream was delicious, the strawberries large and luscious, and the cake, well, you onght to have been there and partook of it, to have had a knowl edge of its sweetness. The receipts of the evening were large, and the money taken in will be used for the benefit of the church. A Familiar Place At the present time there is a very charming young lidy from a neighbor hood town visiting a young lady in this city. This young lady of the first part is a preacher's daughter. Two nights ago she came up town to the postoffice alone While returning home she met a great many young men, and every one of them spoke to her and said it was a nice even ing, etc. When she got back home, she said to her cousin, "why, what familier people you have here in Rock Island. In coming home I met over twenty young men and they all lifted their hats to me and said it was a nice evening. Out where I live we don't speak to people unless we know them " The young lady did not know that the boys were trying to make a mash, bnt when she reads this her unsophisticated mind will probably be somewhat enlightened on Rock Island familiarity. The Baueat Place in Chicago. Chicago Herald, May 10. Any person who visits the advertising agency of Lord & Thomas, McCormick mock, will not doubt that they are trans acting an immense business with the newspaters of the country. A thorough Knowledge ot their business, coupled with energy ana a literal use or their own medicine, has placed them in the front rank of advertising agencies in the United States. We will not state the exact amount, but we will say that during the past few weeks they have closed contracts which will aggregate hundreds of thousands of dollars, and this business has been se cured in competition with the eastern agencies, thus demonstrating their claim of possessing unequalled "facilities." Their business offices are veritable hives of industry, every member of their efficient corps of employes being furnished with work enough to develop their working energies. We think this firm might well adopt as their motto "Courtesy and Energy." The Herald cougratulate9 them on their merited success. The County Building. TRANSFERS. 15 F. E. Palmer to D. F.

Bond filed and approved.- AU Abont a Coat. There was quite a lively time in Jus tice Cooke's office this afternoon over an arbitration case. Some time ago Conrad Schneider thought he would look better if he had a new suit of clothes. He called on Melchoir Koch, the tailor, and left an OTder for the same. In due time the clothes were made and sent to Schneider's house. Mr. Schneider think ing he would make his first appearance in bis new suit at church, waited until one Sunday morning before he tried them on. The pants fitted him "susht like the paper on the wall," and as he gazed in the mirror and saw how nicely he looked in them, he smole a smile of sweet content ment. The vest was next put on, and he could find no objection to it. But what was his consternation when he jumped into the coat. It was a regular ?, and he cwme near being lost in its deep recesses. The sleeves were too long, and the collar came up above his ears. One look in the glass was sufficient. and with a jerk he rid himself of the garment. He had put up $36 in good money for the clothes, and he did not want to lose the use of them on account of the coat. He did not take it back to Eoch, however, but when Monday morning came, he showed up at Marschall's tailor shop with the uncouth article. Marschall said he would remake it for $9.50. Schneider agreed to this and went away. But Marschall found that it was a bigger job than he contracted for, and consequently charged $11.90 for the work. When Schneider came to pay the bill he kicked hard, and refused to settle on that basis. Both were stubborn and would not relent, so the matter was brought be fore 'Squire Cooke. Messrs. Ram- skill, Hoppe and Zimmer three ex perts, with the shears and needle were summoned, and asked to decide whether if a man was very economical and worked real hard that he could have reflxed the coat for loss than $11.90. The arbitra tors looked over the garment carefully. counted the number of stitches, etc.; and rendered the verdict in favor of Marschall saying that they would not hare done the work for a cent less. This settled it. Schneider was satisfied. He went down into his trouser's pocket, pulled forth his wallet, and planked down the cash. Round trip tickets at greatly reduced rates are now on sale at the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific passenger station on Moline avenue,, to: Albert Lea, Spirit Lake, Minneapolis, St faul, Lake Minne- tonka, Dulutb, and Clear Lake.

Let Rock Island Have a Grand Celebra tion of the Motional Holiday. It behooves the patriotic citizen, who is a numerous individual in Rock Island, to think something about celebrating the Fourth of July here this year. It is emi nently proper that this city should have a bang up lum turn blow out on the na tional holiday this year. This city is booming . The presidential campaign is upon us. It is a year pregnant with great events. Therefore should Rock Island arouse herself and make the welkin ring upon the reoccurrence of the Declaration of Independence. Our Rod man Rifles are booming. Let 'em boom. Let the eagle scream. Hang out the banners on the outer walls. Let the big bells gladly ring in the glorious day. Let the atmosphere resound with the detonations of fire crackers, torpedoes and toy pistols: Let sounding brass and tinkling cymbals sound both in sonorous strains. Let the rattling drum and the wry necked fife be heard from the thor oughfares and highways. Let the silver tongued orator discourse proudly and eloquently on our national greatness. Let harmonious choirs lift up their voices in swelling anthems. Let surpliced priests solemnly pronounce pious invocations. Call out the mlitia, the police force, the brave fire laddies, and the secret societies, the trade and manufacturers in gaudy wagons, the masquers and burlesquers in various disguises and let a procession be formed that will reach from Rock Island to Milan. Let the rocket's red glare light up the evening air. Let fantastic fire whirl hither and thither and around and around. Let all the people turn out. Call in the neighbors. Let them come from farm and workshop, from valley and hillside. Let all the country come and unite in a whooping, rousing, grand hurrah ! The Whitney Fleet Sheriff Reticker placed three men in charge of the fleet Thursday afternoon. Along towards dusk, the mtn engaged on the boats, told them that they could re main on board until midnight, when they would have to get off, as it was the inten tion to go down stream. The men, who had been drinking some, were becoming boisterous, and one of the deputies came up town and told Sheriff Reticker that there would likely be trouble. The sher iff hitched up his fastest horse, and with Deputy Sheriff Silvis went down to the fleet It was about 80 'clock : when the sheriff boarded the boat. The roustabouts put on a brave appearance, and it looked as if they would ignore the sheriff. Ret icker walked aboard first and Silvis fol lowed, ine men were ordered to go ashoTe, but they did not seem Inclined to obey. They saw our stalwart deputy sheriff shed his coat, and spit on his hands. He started for tbem and tbey got off in such a hurry, that some of them came near falling in the water. Capt. Whitney will take his fleet back to Keokuk, Iowa, either today or tomor row, and the business of the firm will be conducted by the receiver, Mr. Cole. The Kahlke Bros, have a lien of (3,000 against the boats, which must be settled. Major Connelly is attorney for the Kahlke Bros, and Capt Whitney, while Parks & Pleas ants are attorneys for the receiver. It is to be hoped now that this matter will be arranged to the satisfaction of all parties concerned. The Sunday Programme. Twentieth street Evangelical Lutheran church: the Rev. C. A.
