GRANT, Commiuder of the Union armies and twice ejected President of a united country, it be comes me, as Mayor, to recommend: That all citiiens abstain from their nsnal vocations and clow their workshops and plate of business on Saturday, August 8, ISC, the day of the funeral; And Jhat members of onr military and civic organizations and societies make ar rangements to Join in the procession and at tend the memorial services at the Rock Isl and County Soldiers' Monument, By the Mayor: THOS. MURDOCH. RoBEttT Koehlir, City Clerk. Bat Bali. The Nine Stars crossed bats with the Rapids City club on Tuesday at that place, and defeated the home nine by a score of 19 to 6. The two clubg will play in Rock Island on Saturday. St. Loan Exposition. The second annual exhibition of the St. Louis Exposition and Music hall as sociation will open Wednesday, StptemN ber Jkb, and close Saturday, October 24th. Gilmore's famous band, of New York, will give daily concerts aai help enliven the occasion. Coming Horn. Now that the half breed insurrection has been suppressed, Capt. John Davis, of this city, will return home to spend the winter. Be was engaged in transferring troops by water for the Canadian govern ment. His arrival is looked for in two or three weeks. Tht Postofflce This item is not to state that there is about to be a change in the postoffice.but simply to say that Postmaster Hawes is well satisfied with the change lately made in regard to the location of the stamp window, and everything is running like clock work. When ia He! T. J. Smith, who was formerly in the employ of the American Express com pany, left the city some time ago, as be said, on a pleasure trip to the south. It now trunsiiires that Smith has shaken the dust of the city frm his feet for good, and left a Urge swathe of grief behind on Hccount of numerous bills unpaid. Can't Go. Col. Hjalmar Kohler, the sauve assist nat it the county clerk's office, is steeped In despair over the fact that he has been invited to attend the Grant memorial ser vices in New York, as one of Gov. Ogles by's staff, and cannot accept because his duties have him tied hand and foot. As Kohler has achieved greatness, we are sorry that he cannot enjoy the fruits thereof Suspended. City Marshal Eckhart has suspended Officer Butler from duty, f or drunkenness. Tuesday afternoon he was up in the upper nd of town with several jovial spirits enjoying riotous conviviality. Butler's ease will be fully considered when Mayor Murdoch returns. Marshal Eckhart says he will have no bibulous soul on the po lice force as long as he regulates the city's morals. The Dimick Affair. No new points have been learned in re gard to the hasty departure of Mr. L. D. Dimick, other than it was his intention to locate in business at Kansas city. His father, O. J. Dimick, returned from Kan sas City last night, and found him ready to be guided by any advice his father might give. It is altogether probable that he will start in business again in some other city . A Pest. Reports from our numerous correspon dents throughout the county, show thai the grasshoppers are working sad devas tatioo among the crops. The farmers are out of joint in consequence, but as there is no remedy they will have to grin and bear it. They declare that some fields look worse than a free lunch of an hour's age, and that the barb wire fences are iardlj safe. Eiver Bipleti. The St. Paul touched the levee en her way down last night. The mighty War Eagle is due up to day. Agent Lamont is praying tor a clear bky next Sunday, as the Josephine will -go to Muscatine and return on an excur sion trip. Last Sunday was the day set, tut the weather played sad havoc with the arrangements. Folic Point! . John Corcoran, drunk, and full of tight, was arrested at 10 o'clock last flight by Officer Boland, and took his magisterial medicine today with s wry face. Officer Harris arrested August Hall and Thomas Qainn, .of Davenport, yesterday for trespassing on the city ordinances by selling albums without a license. The fine was $5 and costs. Blown Over. All the whispering and talk about the scandal attached to Alderman Sinnett's name has subsided, and. it is now very evident that the gentleman was the vic tim of evil reports. The Kibbys have lodged no information against him, being really afraid that Mr. Sinnett would bring suit against them for attempted black mail. We are glad that Mr. Sinnett shall continue to have the respect of all honest citizcis, as heretofore. Pure blood is absolutely necessary in order to enjoy perfect health. Hood's Sarsaparilla purifies the blood and strengthens the system. Idleneit. Several kindred spirits accompanied Jas. K. Cooke to Okoboji last night. They were his associates in musical tal entWilliam Don, Louis Knocks and Thomas Corns. Alderman S. J. Collins, Will Swiler and Fred Savage expectr to join them in a few days and help swell the anthem of joy. The haunt of bliss at which the boys will sojourn, has a most romantic name which will add much to the enjoyment of the occa sion. Cooke has promised us a poem after the style of Hiawathw on his return . In the shady nooks abounding in the lo cality he will have ample time to woo the dreamy muse and put his thoughts on paper . The Dog-Killer. The dog-exterminater was abroad in the land at an early hour this morning, armed with a double-barreled shot gun, a club and a chew of tobacco. He is a big coon, ana strikes terror to the hearts of the canines at sight. His optics fell on a little black and tan at the upper depot, a bend was drawn on the animal, and then the whole neighborhood was rudely awakened. One dose of cold lead was not enough to send the chill of death over the purp, and he was given two more. But the dog still breathed, and Mr. Dog Killer belabored it with a club until that instrumat of tor ture broke in two, when he jumped on it with botn feet and ended the farce. Band Tournament. The great band tournament takes place in Geneseo today. None of Rock Island's pet organizations entered, but we have some consolation in knowing that Mr. Sam T. Bowlby has been selected as one of the judges. This is sufficient evidence that the best musicians will rake i n the pot if the other two judges are not bought. We are surprised that cur musicians did not enter for the contest. They would have no trouble in carrying off the prize, as only such second class cities as Chicago, Moline, etc., are entered. If they could not excel in music, their good looks and showy uniforms would see them through. Wicked Molina. The Moline papers tell of the elope ment of a married woman in that city, The interested parties are John Woodber ry, son of a well known citizen of Coal- town, and Mrs. Frank Young. For some time past young Woodberry has been paying undue attention to the woman named, and the husband had been so in formed. Htr reputation is, however, not without tarnish, and the boldness of the couple in f requeuing places of amuse ment in each other's company, as is gen erally known, did not attract unusual at tention. One day last week Woodberry suddenly disappeared, taking with him a valuable bav horse belonging to his father. About this time Mrs. Young also departed and both were seen crossing the Davenport bridge together. What the Argui Would Like to Enow. If the soldiers' home will be located at Rock Island, or not. When the picnic season will shut down. When the roller skating riuks will open fur business. When Bill Hy will again summon enough courage to tackle the humpback gutter crossings. It there ever lived a waiter who wouldn't take a tip. If the present cool weather will hold on until September. When another sensation will bob up and cause the gossips' tongues to wag. If things have quieted down in south Rock Island. Why W. H. Dunker is not clothed with police authority by the mayor. Why the young men of Milan spend so much time on Big Island in the evenings. Banian and Gandaur. The Moline Dispatch says J. A. St. John, the St. Louis gentleman who takes so much interest in matters aquatic, has written to Moliae to ascertain how a race between Gauduur aud Hanlan would probably take here to be rowed late in September or early in October. It would seem that Hanlan ' fame, being world wide, should be sufficient to draw a crowd at aiy time, and more especially when it is known that he is to contest with an oarsman like Gaudaur, who is rapidly ac quiring fame equal to that of any man who pulls an oar. But the Moline Re gatta association is, naturally enough, disposed to be a little cautious about en couraging Mr. St. John to come here with Hanlan and Gaudaur, lest the race should prove as profitless, financially, as was the recent regatta here. Those who enjoy the sport, aud who would like to see the proposed race, will hope that the neces sary encouragement will yet be given. The Weather. We shall doubtless have a plenty of hot days yet this summer, but it will not be the fierce, burning downpour of July sunshine, but that close, muggy, and ex hausting heat in which the surcharged atmosphere appears to play as important a part as the gun's rays. Meanwhile the sun is hurrying to join that unrivaled twinkler the Dog Star, and to bring down upon our heads the traditional terrors of the genuine dog days. If the ancients had known that the Dog Star is really a sun a thousand times as great as our sun, they would probably have attached still more importance to the conjunction of two such blazers in the heavens. The procession of the equinoxes, however, has so wrenched the clockwork of the skies, the sun says, that the sun and Sirius do not meet until after the greatest heat of summer, in ordinary years, has passed. But this has so far proved itself to be not an ordinary year, and it . would not be surprising if the present month has some roasting days in store lor us.

Office 1719 Second avenue. . eodtf FIRST CL.VSS. That's the Kind of Chances Rock Isl and has to Secnr the Soldiers' Home. Hon. H. C. Cleaveland returned home last evening fiom Springfield, where he went in the interest of Rock Island to at tend the meeting of the soldiers' home commission, liock island was tor tun ate in having its application made out in compliance with the requirements of the bill, and it was at once classed among the cities that should be visited by the com mission. Several applications were thrown out for irregularities, Milan be in? said to be amonr the number. At Springfield," Mr. Cleaveland says "the impression prevails that Decatur is favorably considered by some of the commission, but mis supposition ongi- nates mainly from the fact that Senator Jason Rogers of that place, has kept pretty close company with the governor since the legislature adjourned. Many places have made donations of land that is offering it at $1 per acre. The commissioners assured me, however, that these places would receive no more con sideration than others, though of course, the sum expended for a site would hive to come within the prescribed limit." Being askc;d if he knew when the com mission would visit Rock Island, Mr. Cleaveland said it would probably be within four or five weeks. The commit tee meet on the 12th at Waukegan, and then proceed down the central and east ern part of the state, returning through the western portion. It is the general im pression that Rock Island's chances are among the very best. Some of the cities are exhibiting quite a rivalry to secure the location, and when any one of these becomes satisded that it cannot get the honor, the chances are that they wiii lend their assistance to Rock Island. Gen John II. Palmer said to quite an audience: "If it don't go to Springfield, I would like to have it go to Rock Island, on my old friend Sears' ground, where I visited once, and was much impressed with what I saw." Sparks From the Smokestack Conductor "Doc" Bush has recovered from his recent sickness. Capt. Tom Fuller is coatempla'.ini.' a trip to the north pole. The C, B. fc Q. has issued aa order to reduce expenses by cutting dowa the number of employes. Fully 1,3.)0 men will be laid o2 alonsr the line.

The Rock Island & Peoria road were using Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul coaches on their fast express today, as they sent their cars to Galva to convey the excursion party to Milan. Engineer buss is now using tue Sjj, a new extension engine wittt a spark ar resting smokestack. His old engine, the 2"3, is in the shops being remodeled iu style and usefulness, and when she ap pears again she will have all tLe charac teristics of a "dude." It was away last spring that we first mentioned the fact that Bliss should have one of the new style engines on account of his long and faithful ser vice to the company, and we are glad that the officials see things in the same light. Bliss can now ride on his iron horse with a "biled" shirt and stand up collar if he desires, and his laundry bill will not I e increased in the least. The Manhattan Elevated Railroad com pany, of New York, has experienced con siderable trouble ever since the road was opened with the 1 Kjomotive cabs shaking to pieces or rotting out. The life ot a good wooden cab seldom exceeded five years. To obviate these difficulties t!i: mechanical department has recently de signed an iron cab from which great dur ability is expected. No. 12 sheet iron is used, stiffened with angle irons. Wood is not used at all, except for framiug to hoid the windows. Formers have been made for bending the sheets to the proper shape, and templets for luyiDg the sheets out on, and the intention is to supply all engines with cabs of this description as fast as renewal is necessary. llr. An Enjoyable Trip. Frank III had a thoroughly enjoy Lble trip to the old country. He was ac icompanied by Mr. Michael Vetter, prominent larmer near Hamlet, Hero county. They left Rock Island on the 4th of May. At New York they boarded the city of Chicago, an Ionian line steamer, and reached Liverpool without an incident, and no particularly rough weather. It took just nine and one half days to cross the briny deep. After viewing the sights of Liverpool for a few days, the pilgrims started for London, the metropolis of England. Paris, the cen ter of fashion and French pride, was the next objective point. Then Mr. Ill's old home, Baden, Germany, was visited. He bad left Baden when he was seventeen years of age, thirty five years ago, and although the surroundings lodked natural, the faces were all strange to him. Some of his school boy friends had grown to be old men, but it required considerable questioning to ascertain the fact. From Baden Mr. Ill went to Switz erland, and then dowu the Rhine until reaching Cologne, when he crossed to Berlin. Ham berg, in Germany, and Grimsley, in England, were the last cities visited, and the return trip was made from Liverpool to New York, only one rough day being experienced. On the whole Mr. IU was delighted with the trip, which he had been looking forward to for several years past. Fire Department, Attention!
