WEDNESDAY. JULY 15, 1885. A Pilot Diet. Bos Dorrance, the well known river pilot, died at Le Claire this morning, at the ape of fifty-two. Circuit Conn. The circuit court met in adjourned ses aion at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Judge Pleasants presiding. Business continued from the May term is to be attended to. following the Example. Over in Davenport the board of health is thinking seriously of erecting an abat toir, and it is very probable that a move ment will be made in that direction at an early date. This is one good result of Rock Island's commendable action last Monday night. The city across the river is acting wisely in following the example of Rock Island in this matter. Haw Principal. David W. Rcid.'who was last evening elected principal of school No. 1 by the board of education, to succeed Miss Fleta 8. Muse, is a graduate of the State Nor mal school, has had several years exper ience in teaching and in the supervision of school work. He is thirty years of age and married. For two years he had charge of the public schools at Normal. He comes highly endorsed and will un doubtedly make as efficient a principal as bis worthy predecessor. A Mtatako. The Union this morning contains a statement to the effect that the Central Union Telephone company has "rescinded the order requiring subscribers to our local exch anges to call by number, and hereafter calls may be made by name or number." This is erroneous, or prema ture to say the least. Manager Griffith has received no such instructions as indi cated by the above statement. The num ber system is still in force and is likely to remain so for the present. Bass Ball. A highly interesting game of base ball occurred on Sunday in South Kock Iskml A picked nine from the Rock Island house were going to play another nine, but ilie latter failed to put in an appearance. The "Slough Lilies," a club composed of kids about two feet high, agreed to tackle the Rock Island house nine. The game was played, and the "Slough Lilies" were successful by a score ot 10 to 3. The hotel nine were somewhat chagrined at being defeated by such an inf:uitile or ganization and kept the matter as quiet as possible. ExpreM Enterprise. The American Express company has issued a notice that passengers visiting Europe and wishing to avoid delay in New York on their return can have their baggage forwarded in bond by the Amer ican Express company to any of the, prin cipal cities of the country. Baggage may also be sent from Europe without being opened iu New York. The rates from New York will be the ordinary through rates of the company and no charge will be made for bonding, brokerage, permits, cartage, etc. School District Fight. The Aroos has on several occasions re ferred to the school district squabble which has agitated the staid citizens of Coe township for some time. An appli cation was made by several gentlemen for a new school district, and the question was discussed pro and con with consider able earnestness. Finally Superintendent Southwell went up to Coe to "sit" on the case. His decision was that the prayer of the petitioners for a new district should be granted. But now the directors of the adjoining districts have daubed on their war paint and say that these things shall not be. John Shall, director of dis trict No. 4, Mark Iluuberg, of No. 1, and P. F. Cox, of No. 9, were in the city yesterday, for the purpose of see ing a lawyer, swearing by the nine gods in the Roman calendar that tbey will bring the matter into court and contest every inch of the ground. All this howl is raised from the fact that the proposed new district will take 8G0 acres, from district No. 4, 1,000 from No. 1 and 400 from No. 9. What appeared to be the end of the squabble seems to be really only the beginning, for if the matter once gets into the courts, the final settlement of the difficulty can be placed some time in the distant future. Public School System. The board of education met in ad journed session at 7:30 last evening, President Sinnet and all the directors ex cept the retiring member D. Donaldson, being present, Mr. J. W. Welch, the newly elected director took his seat. The board was then reorganized with the election of the following officers: President, J, M. Buford; Treasurer, Cor nelius C. Lynde. Owing to the fact that both the Union and Argus had made the same bid for printing the annual report, a ballot was taken by the board which resulted in the almost unanimous choice of the Arous. The president and clerk were author ized to issue orders for salaries as they mature. David W. Reid was appointed principal of school No. 1, at a salary of $1,000 per annum. The salary of Miss Bessie A. Reynolds, teacher in building No. 1, was advanced from $35 to $40 per mouth. President Buford announced the fol lowing standing committees for the ensu ing school year: Teachers, Text Books and Disciplines Directors Sinnet and Barge. Printing, Blank Books and Furniture Directors Barge and Buford. Fuel, Heating, Ventilation and Jani torsWelch and Stafford. Buildings, Improvements and Repairs Stafford and Sinnet. Finance, General Supplies and Audit ing Buford and Welch. The board then adjourned to meet on or before the first of August to name the tax levy.

Wright's Stereopticon Entertain ment Lsst Night: As large an andience as ever assembled in Harper's theatre witnessed Rev. J. H. Wright's stereopticon entertainment on the "Sunny South" last evening. The illuminated lecture was given under the auspices of Buford Post, Q. A. R., and so great was the general desire to see the novelty, that the selling of tickets had to be stopped and nearly 800 people were turned away. The stereopticon views were thrown upon a canvas by means of oxybydrogen light, Mr. Wright describing them fully as they appeared. First came a series of il lustrations "befo' the wah," showing Eva and Topsy, Uncle Tom, Eva's farewell and death of Uncle Tom. Then the scenes during the war were given, show ing the following scries: Fort Sumpter daylight, moonlight and on fire; leaving Washington; at the front; battle of Ft. Donclson; Pittsburg landing; searching for the dead and wounded; on picket; in the hospital; Monitor and Merrimac; Kearsarge and the Alabama; siege of Yicksburg; how our boys fought at Gettysburg; Chickamauga and Lookout Mountain; Sherman's march to the sea; "The Star Spangled Banner;" General U. S. Grant; dirge by the orchestra, during which was shown Lincoln and Garfield's pictures: monuments at Bunker Hill, Greenwood, N. Y.; Mt. Vernon. Rock Island, and of Seward, Thomas and Mc Pherson. For the second part of the entertain ment, which was an illustration of what the lecturer saw through his camera, the following were among the illustrations shown: At St. Louis; Cairo transfer; Mi lan, Tenn. ; governor's residence; Jack son, Miss.; Gen. Joseph E. Johnson's for titicalions, one half mile west of the city; our breakdown, V. & M. R. It., Vicks burg; hotel; Grant's "cut off canal" (pres ent channel of the Mississippi); Castle Hill; Washington street; Jackson road; eaves where they got away from the U. S. shells; Devil's Backbone and "Whist ling Dick," U.S. national cemetery, its Gateway, drives and 16.000 graves; Grant f'emberton treaty monument. In commencing the third part of the I programme, glimpses of the sights about New Orleans were given, add then came the exposition scenes, the buildings and grounds from various points. In the gov ernment and state building, state exhib its; navy display; the Greeley exhibit; "cotton is king;" launching tho life boat; liberty bell. Main building, Mexican and Ch'mese displays; the music hall; machin ery department, etc., etc.; Mexican oc tagonal building, horticultural hall, fruit; flowers; fountains and cacti in abundance. The art gallery, disconso late Cupid (statuary); fmong the pictures. Mr. Wright reproduced upon his canvas, in ;losing, the finest paintings in the col lection "The Minute Men of '76," "Driv ing the Last Spike," and others some thing heretofore unatlempted. The members of the post as well as Mr. Wright are deeply grateful for the handsome appreciation of the entertain ment attested. The public could have shown no better manifestation of interest in the "Grand Army boys," or could money have been spent to better purpose, aside from the fact that those who went were well repaid. It was a $300 house, of which about $200 will be cleared. A Oratnitom Ininlc Rock Island, July 15. Editor Annus: Alderman Larkin, in a meeting of the council Monday night, made the remark "they are only butchers any way," as if butchers, as a class, are not the equal of men of other callings. The butchers have, perhaps, as many un worthy members as any other class and as a class, have iust as worthy men in their ranks as can be found in this community and it is beneath the character of any man to cast a slur upon them. I know that the majority of the alderman's constitu ents will not justify him in making any insidious allusions towards butchers. The action of the butchers in opposing the establishment of the city slaughter house with a French name, was the cause of the alderman's contemptuous remark. I would respectfully remind the alderman that because I am a butcher does not de prive me of my rights to express opin ions in opposition to his, and that while I concede the right and duty of the city council to regulate and control the sale of meats and to inspect all food offered for sale in the city, I do not concede that in the exercise of that right and duty it should place any unnecessary restraint or onerous tax upon my calling or that an alderman should throw obloquy upon that calling. The butchers pay their taxes and licenses and will pay for the privi leges granted them by the city council as cheerfully as any other citizen. Butcher. SlBlKBASi SIFTINUS. Illinois City, July 13.

The Tri-City Meeting of the T. M. C. A. at Davenport YesterdayPa pers and Discussions. AFTERNOON SESSION. At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon the tri-city conference of the Y. M. C. A. of Davenport, Rock Island and Moline, opened at Library hall in the presence of a liberal attendance, with representatives present from each association. The pro gramme was opened with devotional ex ercises by Frank Nadler, of this city, which was followed by reading of reports from the associations, indicating growth and steady progress. Mr. D. C. Whee lock, of Moline, read a paper upon the subject of "Tri-city Intervisitation." A discussion followed on the interest ing paper, and a motion prevailed that committees be appointed by each associa tion in the tri-cities for the purpose of carrying out the plan of intervisitation . Mr. Elmer Brown, of Chicago, addressed the audience entertainingly on the sub ject of "Proper use of theecular work." Mr. Cockran, of Milwaukee, Wis., then spoke on the subject of "How to reach young men." He thought prudence and wisdom should be used in greeting young men . He recommended a firm grasp of the hand and an earnest word. It was proper that inquiry into his spiritual con dition should be made. Assure him of your hearty sympathy and you will draw that young man into the association. He believed in canvassing the churches and everywhere where young men most did congregate, even the barrooms. Throw around him all those hearty ties that will satisfy him there is something in what you say. He would not undertake to ar gue the question of doctrine with any one asked to become a Christian, but would lake him to some minister of the gospel. The question box was conducted by Slate Secretary Brown, of Illinois, after which the conference adjourned until night. EVENING SESSION. There was a much larger attendance at the evening than at tho afternoon session and possibly the exercises were more in teresting. Mr. J. N. Mason, president of the Moline association, opened the ex ercises with prayer, when Mr. E. E. Brown, assistant state secretary of Illi nois, read an instructive paper on "Ladies Auxiliary." Mr. N. W. Woodford, former secretary of the Davenport Y. M. C. A., delivered an address on the relation of the associa tion to the church, which held the closest attention of the audience throughout. Mr. I. E. Brown submitted a report of the Atlanta convention, after which the con ference adjourned. At. 6 o'clock in the evening the delegates took tea at the local Y. M. C. A. rooms. Steamboating. An anonymous correspondent, who is probably on employe of the St. Louis & St. Paul packet company, has sent out the following: Davenport, July 7. Ed. Com. Gaz.; I notice a special in your Sunday, July 6, edition, headed "Racing on the Upper Mississippi," which stated- the rice be tween the Mary Morton and St. Paul re sulted in the Morton reaching St. Paul two hours and fifty five minutes ahead of the St. Paul. As it failed to state the reason why she so reached there ahead, I propose to give the facts: The St. Paul lost ten hours at Keokuk, repairing ma chinery (a very good reason the Morton did not see her after leaving Keokuk), and left there eight hours behind the Morton, and thus gained over five hours on her between here and St. Paul, and returned here three hours ahead of the Morton, after lying five hours at the rapids on her way down. It will do to talk about the Morton running with the St. Paul, or the Pittsbugh with the War Eagle, but they can't do it on water. Blood will tell, and facts are stubborn things. Jocko. If every incident associated with the Moi ton's beating the St. Paul had been enumerated it would have cast a reflec tion upon the latter steamer, which was withheld at the time through sympathy. Upon leaving St. Louis the St. Paul car ried nothing. She had previously transferred all her freight to the fast steamer Gem City, which put out for Keokuk an hour ahead of the starting time of the Mary Morton and St. Paul. The St. Paul had no cargo, and for this reason expected to beat the Mary Morton to Keokuk, take her cargo from the Gem City, and by so doing get such a start that she could easily win the race . But the Morton with a heavy trip was too much for the St. Paul from the start. The St. Paul could not get away from her all the way to Keokuk, where she had to stop and take her freight. That is what the "repairing machinery" amounted to. Further the Morton lost three hours at Davenport by a break down, an hour at Muscatine by the drowning of a deck hand, aud then won the race. The Dia mond Jo is not in for racing. Its steam ers are for the comfort of tourists and the traveling public, but when assailed it is able to hold up its end. llirLETS. The War Eagle made such an exertion on her last round trip that she has broken down and the St. Paul had to turn back at Keokuk and take her trip. Two Saint line boats are now laid up the War Ea- j gle and Gem City. It is understood the Centenniel will be sent out now. She will find slow work at the present stage of water. It is estimated that there are 80,000,000 feet of rafted pine lumber and logs, val ued at $1,700,000, laid up in the sloughs and barges on the Upper Mississippi wait ing movement to points where it is to be taken out on the bank. The Centennial, the largest boat on in land waters in the world, will be up to morrow in place of the War Eagle. Capt. Davidson is the skipper. The Mary Morton, the race horse of the upper Mississippi, came down last night with a good trip. The handsome flagship Pittsburg, of the Diamond Jo fleet, will be up tomor row afternoon, The elegant Sidney is due down to morrow. Get your awnings, tents, wagon cov ers, etc., of G. H.

O'Brien, a rising young lawyer of Davenport, and well known in this city, was the victim of a fearful and probably fatal fall between midnight and 5:30 this morning. It was at the time last mentioned that he was found coma tose and in a pool of his own blood in the rear of Der Democrat building in Daven port, ne was conveyed to a livery sta ble placed upon a stretcher, and a physician summoned and every effort used to bring the unfortunate young man to consciousness, but to no avail. It was found that his skull was cracked from the top of the head and a little to the right of the centre, clear down to the base of the brain, and a quantity of the brain had found its way out. His face was badly bruised, the right side being mutilated be yond expression. The reason of his being found where he was is not definitely known. It is only evident that he had fallen from the window of his office twenty-four feet above. Between the window and the ground is a coping which is spattered with blood and flesh, showing that he had struck it in his terrible descent. He had, although a comparatively young man, been for several vears a hard drinker, and the theory advanced is that he entered his office some time after midnight for he was seen in a state of intoxication about that time had gone to the window sill, sat down with his back to the alley, had gone to sleep and had fallen out backward. When the fact of the young man's ter rible accident became known, ugly rumors got afloat; one was that there was foul play, that his awful fate was the result of a quarrel, and he had been purposely thrown out of the window. Chief Kes slcr, of the Davenpoit police force, im mediately ordered a thorough investiga tion of the case, and O'Brien's wherea bouts were traced to the time of his being carried to his room in a state of helpless intoxication by two friends, who placed him in a chair and left him. Later it is probable be went to the window to get cool air, sal down as stated above, and fell out while asleep. From 8 to 9 o'clock last evening he was in this city, and was drinking hard then The young man who has met su?h a thrilling fate as a cause of his own dis sipation, was one of the brightest and most promising members of the Scott county bar. Though young in years, only SO he had accomplished a great deal in the legal profession. He was in telligent and considerable of an orator. Last fall he was elected a justice of the peace on the democratic ticket, but he re signed the office a short time since, his bondsmen refusing to vouch for him longer unless he mended his ways. At 3 o'clock this afternoon he had not yet recovered consciousness, and his death is expected at any time. Bongh Accidents. Xels Nelson, a Swede from Davenport, was driving to this city this morning, and just as he ;ot off the Government bridge his horse began limping. After crossing the railroad track he slopped and got out, aud lifting up the hind foot of the horse foi.nd that a stone had got fastened in the shoe, lie was attempting to remove it when the animal kicked him in the head knocking him senseless and breaking the skull. Dr. Plummer was summoned and the sufferer was taken across the river to Mercy hospital, where he lies at the point of death. Yesterday afternoon, William Itinck, the grocer, corner of Seventh avenue and Fourteenth and a half street, was thrown from his wagon and painfully though not seriously injured. Base Ball for Blood. There is soon to be a red hot game of base ball at Brooklyn, Iowa, between the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific nine of this city, and the one at Brooklyn. The two nines, all employes of the road, had a game at Brooklyn on the Fourth, but owing to the unfairness of the umpire the winning nine was not decided upon, the match being for $50 a side or $100 to the winning side. So another challenge has passed between the nines, and a match has been arranged for the near fu ture, the nines having by mutual agree ment added $100 each to the prize, mak ing it $300. It will be an exciting game, as the nines are evenly matched, aud are both determined upon victory. County Court A warrant was sworn out iu the county court this morning for the arrest of U. Abundi, M. D., for practicing medicine without a license . Last night Sheriff Reticker returned from Cordova with F.J. Drexel, whom he arrested for selling liquor without a li cense.

Members of the Commission Meet in Springfield and Lay Down Rules lor Competing Towns. The members of the commission to lo cate the Soldiers' and Sailors' home as sembled in Springfield yesterday morn ing, and at once discovered that they had a far more difficult job upon their hands than they at first supposed. The first thing they encountered were delegations from Peoria, Decatur and Alton, all anx ious to button hole them in the interest of their respective localities. It was de tcrmined that the commission would have to sit down upon this mode of proceeding or it would have delegations following it all over the state. In an informal manner the delegations present were allowed to extend invitations to the commission to visit the places they represented, after which the board went into secret session and organized by electing Col . W. W. Berry, of Adams, president; Capt II. M. Hall, of Richland, secretary, and Phocion Howard, clerk. Considerable lime was consumed in a discussion as to the best method to be pursued in visiting the va rious points and receiving the delegations, and the matter was finally decided by adopting the following: Resolved, That all applications for lo cation of the soldiers' and sailors' home be made in writing to the board at Spring field, and shall be filed in the office of the governor on or before Aug. 1, and no ap plication will be received or considered after that date. Resoived, That such applications as do not show that the proposed site corres ponds substantially with the requirements of the statutes will not be considered. Each application must be authenticated, so as to entitle it to credit. Resolved, That this board will visit such localities as (lie proper applications, at which visit proposals will be recived anil sites inspected. The board tben adjourned to meet in Springfield on Aug. 4, when, after look ing over applications, a visitation route will be laid out, and the board will pro ceed upon its inspection of sites. In the evening the commission was en tertained by the governor at the execu tive mansion, and the late trains carried a majority of Hie members to their homes. Realizing that they have an arduous duty to perform, and of the numerous appli cations for the location all but one must be disappointed, the board has expressed a determination of making haste slowly, so that the question of a site for the home is bound to be an open question for many months. The resolutions of the commis sion should be heeded by the citizens of Rock Island. The committee on loca tion should have its work in readiness for the presenting of Rock Island as a favor able site, and the application should not be tardy in getting to Springfield.
