TUESDAY. SEPT., 15, 1885. Off on Jaunt. W. P. Quayle, the dudish heavy weight business manager of the Argus, and An drew Thompson, who hag acted as trav eling correspondent and circulator during the summer, and is consequently foot sore and weaiy from tramping over the county, left for Chicago this morning for a few days' recreation trip, which both are deserving of. Upon their return, Mr. QiiAyle will be found in his usual capacity with renewed vigor, and Mr. Thompson will resume charge of his school in BowN lug township. A Clever Catch. Yesterday morning Officer Swaiuaker, of the Peoria police force, arrived in this city in pursuit of one Prank Warren, who had broken jail at Peoria, where he had lccn locked up by the officer for lar ceny. He had previously been arrested in Sprimrfield, where he broke jail and fled to Peoria. About noon Officer Swainakcr espied his bird entering the stairway leading to the Western Uuion telegraph office, and corraled him. II.: left for Peoria with his prisoner last evening. Bate Ball Negotiations were opened this morning for seeming a viil to Kock Island of the female base ball club mcntionrd in these columns a week ago. The club is playm in t'liicmro todav. and it is altogether probable thkt a visit to this city will be liiHile in a week or so. Harry Sage and Frank Anderson, the Kock Maud battery, left Pueblo for home today. The Colorado press pays a jus tribute to the playing of the Hock Island pony battery." as they were termed in the west., and lays the success of the I'm lilo team in winning the state pen ant to the skill of the battery.

The charming, popular actress, Cathe rine Lewis, will appear at Harper's the- atre Thursdav evening iu her new four act comedy, entitled "Gladys." Miss Lewis, who is traveling under the management of John Templeton this sea son, is not only an actress of the high or der, but a vocalist of few equals. It was she who first sang Gilbert & Sullivan's fascinating "Olivette," and gave it its place among the leading operas of the day. The bill in which she now appears affords opportunity for both comedy act ing and vocal rendition. Wherever Miss Lewis has appeared she has been received with favor, and praise has followed in her footsteps. Those who fail to see her Thursday evening will miss a rare treat CI.ARA MORRIS. There appears to be a misunderstand ing between the manager of the Burtis Opera house and the manager of Clara Morris. Manager Harper booked the eel ebrated actress at his theatre for Sept. 22, over a week ago, and has advertised accordingly. To avoid any trouble and as a favor to the Morris management Mr. Harper cancelled the date this morn ing. THE TKMl'I.KTON'S. It has been asserted that, having as he has the management of Catherine Lewis this season, Mr. Templeton has nothing to do with Fay's operatic luing that the fairy vocalist is shifting for herself. Such is not the case. Fay and Alice Vane and the entire company are filling a season's engagement at the Bijou theatre in New York city, and are under John Temples ton's able management as usual. MEDDLESOME MAYOR M UK DOCK. Those HunipdMicked Gutter Crossiugs- Ity Whose Supremo Authority They Were Removed. The assumption of Mayor Murdock in governing municipal affairs and the dic- tatory spirit displayed by him is unpar alleled. By what authority he has taken upon himself to order the iron gutter crossings, tor which something in the neighborhood of $15 was expended, in a question not easily decided. Unless the the suggestion which he offered at the last meeting of the city council, pertain ing to the sale of the city's old iron, and which was accepted in good part and passed in resolution form by the alder men, pertained to the crossings. If such was the meaning of the meddlesome may or's suggestion, it was nothing more or less than a hypocritical way of disposing of a matter in which be had no legal say- In the council chamber he is simply a presiding officer, and has no voice except when asked for an opinion. Yet, hardly any subject Is brought up, that he does not air himself upon it and volunteer his opinion before it is passed to the aldermen for consideration. An Ariius reporter approached Street Commissioner MiCarlhy on the hump backed crossing subject yesterday, and asked him under whose order he was re moving tliem. He replied that lu was given instructions from the sine ana alley committee. nut suppose Nielli t hi r. Duett, "Nii;ht In Wilier," I.mmiUini Ml. I'U'asaniK anil Mr. Kmicke Violin Suin. ..

The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy is making arraugements for the St. Louii fair and other attractions in that city dur ing the next month. The exposition iK'iis this month and closes October 28, and will be followed by the musical con veution in the exposition hall, which will continue three days. The fair opens Oo tuber fi, and on the Cth the Veiled Proph et pageant occurs; on the 8th the Trad ers' parade, and during the entire week the city will lie illuminated beautifully To the end that all desiring to visit St Louis during the week may do so at lit tie expense, the "Q." will sell tickets from October 3 to 10, good to return on the 12th, for one fure for the round trip a rale at which everybody may travel Two trains of six coaches and three sleepers each will leave Uock Island the night before the Veiled Prophets' parade, fair and FflMiva' . The Uock Island rink was auspiciously opened under the auspices of the parish of St. Joseph's church last evening, and from the attendance and receipts on the 0 ening night, the venture promises U lie a paying one for the church. The af fair is of the nature of a fair and festival, which with the skating during the even ing, makes the whole exceedingly agreea ble aud attractive indued. Tables richly decontted ornament the centre of the hall, while at the same time leaving the usual course free for skating. Several young ladies of the church are in alteu d nice to wait upon the tables, and the arrangement is such that people may eat driuk and be merry while the skiling in progress. The fair and festival con tinues for twelve nights and a better place to pass an eveuing could not be sought. Hoard of Education The school hoard met iu uiljoiirued session at 7:;!0 Saturday evening. There were dreseiit all tlie directors except J. M. Buford and F. M. Siimett. In President u ford's absence Mr. Barge was called to the chair. The text book committee recommended the adoption of Packard's zoology in lieu of Teni.y. now in use. The following rule was iinauimously I.d: Children 6 years of age, or who u ny itltiiu to that age at any time during the uricnt tei'in, mav be admitted the tir.il eek of said term by presenting to the aclier a cerliticiite trom the superiiileu- i lit. As a member of the commit lee on teachers. Mr. Barge reported that there were insufficient accommodations for sealing pupils of the eighth and ninth rules iu t lie bii;li school building, and recommended that a room lie secured in the neighborhood of the high school building, and a teacher be appointed for these pupils. The tionrd appointed Miss Mina 0. Bowen to the place at tj:!5 per month, and empowered F. M. Sinnett as a committee ot one to secure Ihe temporary pinners. The commillec on janitors was authorized to employ a janitor. The following bills were allowed and ordered paid: K. Craiiiiitnn. ifl.S.Stl; E. II. Collins, $10 80; J. 11. Heaves. 19 !2; John T. Noftsker, J'.t'.l.T'J; Charles Smith, lSO.TO; Henry Dart's Sons, $:S.S0; M. C. Flick, 31.15; Mr Calligan, ?3S 25; Charles Ben son, $23.70. the instructions came indirectly fiom the mayor. So far the iron gultc crossings in the central and busiucss por tion of the city have been replaced by iu ferior wn.ideu ones material that i worth 50 per cent less than the iron ones A considerable amount of indignation has been expressed at the mayor's assum ing authority and he will be given op porli.nity to explain at the next council meeting. He misled the council, and his scheme is not to be allowed to pass tin noticed. If he, who is so desirous of puts ting his cheeky nose into matters that don't concern him iiloiie.wouid turn his atten tion to the miserable condition of the streets Seventeenth street from Second avenue to First for instance, and guide the movement of the street commissioner rather than meddle with what concerns the council only, tax payers would be better satisfied. The Street Flirt. Whatever idea the young girls who practice street Itirting may entertain of their seemingly innocent pastime, it may tie set down as a certainty that when respectable young man desires the lie- iiuaintance of one who may some day be come his wife, he does nut go out on the street and seek her ncquaintancc through a flirtation. But, on the other hand, the flirt on the street, no matter how inno cent and fair hur intentions mav be, is the last person he would seek as his life's companion. He de-ires purity, without and above suspicion. The young lade who engages in this kind of pastime should bear in mind that she not only en lungers her reputation and leaves a stain upon her good name, but that her name is a byword among those with whom she flirts, to be bandied about in the saloons on the street corners, and in the low down, unholy places in the city, fastening on her otherwise fair name a stigma or stain that will follow her years after she sees her folly amt atU'inpts to mend he ways. Quite a Compliment It is usually customary for county school superintendents to exchange the sets of examination questions used for applicants for teachers' certificates, plan which is mutually beneficial to su perintendents and pupils. In keeping Willi all good customs, County Huperin tendent Southwell has pursued this prac tice for some lime, and last week he sent a card ot his ouestions to D. T. Stewart, county superintendent of Edgar county who by the way is one of the oldest and best known county superintendents in the state. This morning Mr. Southwell re ceived a letter from Mr. Stewart, which the latter said: "I am in receipt of your set of quesliuus. aud Ihey are the best I have ever seen. I will send you mine." Mr. Southwell is hereby made the subject of a rare conipliiLcnl, as all who are interested iu the Uock Island county schools will be pleased to know. County Building.

Alderman John Lafrenz and Marshal Eckhart are in Oskaloosa todav, consult ing with Mayor Murdock iu relation to the new Hock river bridge. We should like to know what Mr. Eckhart has to do with the management of city affairs? Has he not enough to do to look after ids im mediate department, or has it reached that degree of proficiency when it needs no further attention from the chief? Per haps, though, Mr. Murdock has taken Mr. Eckhart mto his confidence as a side partner or private secretary. Bill Nye thinks that "honesty is the best policy" for every one who deals with an editor. He says: "Don't attempt to cheat an editor out of a year's subscrip tion to his paper, or any other sum Cheat the miuister, cheat the lawyer, cheat the doctor, cheat anybody or every body, but if you have any regard for fu ture consequences, don't fool with the printer. He will get even w ith you and more to. You will be up for something, or want some public favor for yourself or some of your friends, and just when your luck is. a "thing of beauty and joy for ever, the printer wilt open upon you ami knock your air castles into a cocked hat at the first fire. He'll subdue you, and then you'll cuss your stupidity for a driveling idiot, go hire some mau to knock you low ii and kick Von then foi railing."

The Chippewa Logging company held its annual meeting at Beef Slough last week, a very large attendance of nu m tiers being present. The amount of logs on the Chippewa and its tributaries, il is stated, will be two hundred million less than at the close of the season a year ago. A resolution was adopted authorizing the officers of the company to contract for and purchase two hundred million feet ol new logs during the coining winter. Thi; is against four hundred and twenty mil lion feet of logs contracted for aud cut last winter.
