Vow Hon Company A new hose company was organized in ibe Seventh ward Saturday evening, the meeting being presided over by Alilcrmac Scbra-der, William Kerr acting in the ca pacity of secretary. Robert Wagner ana It. Schwecke wito tellers. The "Gilpin Hose Company' was decided upon aa the name, and organization was completed with the election of the following officers: Foreman Robert Wagner. Assistant foreman George Browner. KecretaryT-John Linehan. Treasurer Rudolph Schwecke. The company starts with a good mem bership. Alderman Schroder was ex tended a vote of thauks for his efforts in behalf of the new company. A Bartinv Hiver- The season for rafting upon the Chip- u'wu will close in about two weeks, and fur it is believed by lumbermen that the chitnut's iu the channel of the river uml the existence of other obstructions, as l tie result of the flood of Hepteuiber, 1hs, have caused more damage to rafts tlmu has been felt fur ttuy season for the lnf,t ten yniiB, considering the amount of lumber thus trmiNported . Neatly all the mills Hie uow running, clearing up fur a ilntil close of the sawing season nf 1885, and though a large supply of logs is still in store, the .season's work has been vury satisfactory. There will be no demand for men to work in the woods hero this wilder, as hundreds of available men are idle, waiting for a chance to hire out at almost any wages. The Motor. The first trip of the motor on the Rock Wand & Milan road into the city was eiirtcieyestnrdsy forenoon, May or Murdock, City Attorney Sweeney and others com ing in on (he trial test, togetberwith Sec retary Uuyer and the dieentors of the road. No difficulty was experienced in navigating on the tracks in the city and no accident was met with. Today the motor is running every hour from the corner of Maihet sipiare and Third ave nue. A number of the citizens in the vi cinity uf the new terminus of the road have given vent to indignant feelings to day and opeuly denounced the city fathers for allowing the arrangement. An Anotfs repoitcr rode out several blocks on a car to which tbu motor was attached this morning, and although horses seemed to avoid coming in direct contact with the institution, they did not seem frantic or much alarmed. A Good Choice. A democratic caucus was held at the Wide Awake hose house Saturday evens jug for the purpose of putting in the field a nominee to succeed ex Alderman George W. Henry in the Third ward. The meeting was largely attended and was called to order by W. E. Young chairman of the ward committee who was made presiding officer of the meet ing. Louis Ohweiler was called to the Secretary's desk. Peter Schlemmer and Gus Stengle were appointed tellers, and an informal ballot, resulted as follows: U. Winter, 27; J. MoaenfeMor. 3; C. V. Negus, 1. Mr. Whiter was thereupon nominated by acclamation. Than UnsiHiia Winter uo better nomin atiou could have been made. He has been a resident of Hock Island since childhood, embarked in business here, and is at present a member of the pros perous wholesale liquor house of Mott, Winter & Co. He has always taken ins Iciest in the city's welfare, and is with all a representative citizen. He will he un animously elected. t The Next Attraction- "Hun-Oaks" will be the next attraction at Harper's theatre. The Pelroit Free J'nsn of the 8lh says: The interesting drams, "Burr Oaks," was revived at White's theatre last night in the presence of an audience that nearly tilled the immense auditorium. The scenic e (Tec is are a trifle less heavy and preten tious than they were last season, but there is quite enough iu that way to give the play all needed embellishment, and the play is one of continuous and thrill ing interest. Every act and every scene was received with many complimentary demonstrations last night. The principal parts are capably acted by Miss Genes vieve Rogers, I. It. Higins, M. O. Higs gins, I Jen Saekett, W. J. Hollon, and Miss Irene Worrcll-Holton . Geuevieve Rogers impersonation of Margie Oaks is neat, intelligent and sympathetic, and Mr. Higgins' liuvr Oaks has some notable touches. The ladies and gentlemen of the company nil woik well together, and the result of their joint, endeavor is an agree able and moving representation of a drama that possesses a large inherent in terest.

The Hennepin Clinnmioim in the Oar- den City What the Great City Proposes to do this Winter, While in Chicago a tlav or two ago a B. P. Telliughast, of tbe Davenport Democrat called at the office of ExGov. William Bross, president of the Chicago Tribune Com pan. Gov. Bross has aU ways been one of the most active of Chi. cago's leading commercial forces, yet be has found time to serve his state at its capital for four years, and to devote much time and energy to public interests. He has been an important factor in the growth of his city, having been for thirty eight years one of its leading citizens. It is a fact that to Gov. Bross belongs the honor of being among the very Crat to advocate internal improvements in tbe west. Among nil the early and laLc friends of. a water connection between Lake Michigan and Mississippi river no one has a more splendid record lor per sistent and t'ffeclive work than be. Ilia enthusiasm has grown us tbe yvtxrn have rolled by, aud to d;ty be is recognized as one of tbu leading cbain- pions of tbe Hennepin cuniil. As long ago as tbe liock Jsluml convention in 1873 he was regarded as Hennepin's vet eran, lie was present ut the Des Moioes convention, at tbu Davenport convention lie was made presiding olllccr of tbe great St. Paul Wtiter way gathering- hi August last. Of every conference and conven tion for twenty years whose object was to reduce transportation charges lie lms been an influential p.irt. Thu J)emern( oi Sunday contains a full iiecount of its representative's interview, the following being an ubsMactof Gov. Bross' remarks: "The friends of the Hennepin canal and the people of the west have occasion to congratulate themselves as they never bud before. The measure bus more friends in cougres aud outside of that body than evea before. You find evi dence of this iu the St. Paul convention whleb was attended by the best, men iu the west. It is my impression that more and stronger men attended that meeting than were ever before present at a waier way convention." "The only opposition lo tbe Hennepin Cftnal," explained Gov. Biobs. "comes fiom cranky men everywhere, not from any particular section of the country. Any level headed man who examines the subject will bo iu favor of it The Springfield (Mass.) Hipuhlicm, the New York Time and tfttn, and the 1'hiladel paia 5TfHtare specimens. They assail tbe Hennepin canal because they have tbe insane idea that there should bo no inter nal improvements in the country, and be cause the canal, in their opinion, would hurt the railroads. I want to say Hint, in my judgment, if the very men who edit these papers would carefully examine the advantages of the canal they would favor it." 'l am told," said the interviewer, "thtrt Chicago is looking upon the canal project with move favor than formerly?" 'Yes, that is true. Our business 'men who uuderstaud it or will take the time to consider it, are all interested. I think Chicago will make a united effort, before the next congress. Our people, regard tbe canal as an essential part of the improve meut of the MissiM'dppi river anil the ays tern which connects the great lakes with the St. Lawrence. The reason Chicago has been lukewarm is because business men have so much to think of. Time is precious. Now, however, they have de termined to bring it before the board of trade in such a way as to secure llm sue cess of theeuterprise," Kecurring to the enemies of the Henne pin Gov. B. was asked to locate any op position that might come to thulium in the west. He said; "1 cau't locale tbe opposition. There aitfrmen in -Wisconsin who waul thu Wis consin river made into a cutml across the slate. They will do nothing for the Mis sissippi aud Lake Michigan improvement. There used to be some opposition in St. Louis, but there is none now in thatquar ter because we arc considering it as a part of their own great river. And more, they know we have become so strong that we must have a finger in the pio else they will not have any pie baked-.1' "In point of long service, ability, and , earnestness Gen. Thomas J. Henderson,1 of the 7th district of tbe slate, stands at the head. He is now serving his sixth continuous term, although his district has been changed, and he has never lost an opportunity to advance the iniereeLs of the canal, ile has matte many irionon among congressmen whose party views are opposed to his own. Congressman Murphy of Davenport, and Neecu of the Hock Island di.strict, have been good friends of the canal. I think Senator (Julloin uf Illinois will do gallant work, and be considered as the special champion of our cause. Senator Allison, of your own state, has been a staunch friend and will continue to be." "I consider Edward Russell, of Dav enport, one of the main advoeales of the measure, and one of its most intelligent promoters. Mr. Hussell is the etlleient secretary of tbe Michigan and. Mississippi canal commission, and has been for years. He knows more about the transportation question, as it is related to this waterway improvement, and can make astrongei argument than any other man. Give him that compliment from me, for be deseives it, and more, too." With now ami then an interruption. Gov. Bross continued to speak of those who have been of great service- iu advanc ing the people's interest: "There is John C. Dore, formerly pres ident of the Chicago board of trade. He is now in Europe. He has been iu Washington a great deal on this business. He is oue of the most intelligent workers in tbe country. He knowswhat the, can als are doing in this countiy, in France aud England. I am assured by Mr. Dore and Judge Fryc, who is tbe promoter of the Florida ship canal project, that the canals in Germany, France and England are paying belter thau the railroads. This act has given an impetus to cauul build- ing for the last ten years, uot only be cause they pay but because they arc es sential to the commerce of the people who build them." "How much ought the next congress In your judgement, appropriate for be ginning the canal?" was a question asked at this point. "It ought to be not less than $l.t)oo, 000. The sum asked for, of the last eon gresa was ridiculously small." The Democrat representative suggested that tbe friends of the canal would be glad to know that they could Count on tbe personal induence of Gov. Bross at tbe national capital the coming winter. He promptly furnished the information by saying "I wilt go to Washington this winter if I am needed. I was there lust winter for a short time, but now I am prepared to go and stay." It was the opinion of Gov. Bross that much work is yet to be done, and if it is done intelligently the object sought w ill be accomplished. One more rally on tbe: part 'of tbe friends of the Heunepin canal and it U believed this national work will le P'co.srnfzed by a national conjjrtss aa u shouK i;e the statement nriy b: madj with confidence that tbu uutlook to-day is more favorable than it ever has been for the early corcprtion of the most im por'attt commercial enterprise of the age the Hennepin canal.

STEKKING STEAMBOATS A Veterans liperience hi the Pilot House KriuiusceiHva of Life on the Obi MislBippi, a Hulf a dozen river men sat around the fire in the Diamond Jo warehouse one evening lust week, the weather worn countenance of one in particular aa the glow from the fire reflected upon it, be tokened a life spent on the "Great Father of Waters." The subject of conversa tion was the sinking of the grain barge ou the upper rapids the other day, an 1 of course each "river rat" had some personal experience to iclate. The one, however, alluded to abeve, seemed to have spent more years in the pilothouse than any of the others. He, iu fact, had been schooled ou the Mississippi, and he bad studied Iho crooks aud turns, the saud bars, and land marks of the groat river, with as much diligence as a school boy does his lessons when he. doesn't waut to make them up after 4 o'clock iu tbe afternoon. His had beeu a life of steamboat navigation, ami he knew bow to tell what be had seen, and tbe cx perieuce he had at the wheel in a way that was interesting indeed. "Well," said he, "there was never a pilot that lived but what met with an ac cident, some lime iu his life. Now the man that was at tbe wheel when that barge went down the other day, is just as good a man as ever touched a wheel iu the Mississippi, or any other river for that matter, and it was no fault of his that the ace id e id occurred. A steamboat is a mighty queer institution to handle, for iu order to manage one a pilot must study the actions of his boat and what she is likely to do uuder certain circumstauccs just as a jockey does bis trotting steed. One little jump at a critical moment might stud the boat to the d 1. And I know of no place on Ibe river where as much caution and care must be used us ou the upper rapids be tween Hock Island and LeClairu. Every steamboat has its tricks tricks that are peculiar with itself. So with the Sidney; just as she got at that critical poiut on the rapids the other day she made a sud den turn, and all that the pilot could do, could not have prevented her from hav ing her own way. The consequence was tbe barge struck a rock aud down she went. The pilot knew jist where he was and the condition of the river channel, but he didn't know what the boat was going to do, and so he got left. He had not been on her enough to study bet tricks; that was what was the mailer." "But this reminds me of a little exjer ieiicu I once had. It was a great many years ago, - aud I was captain and first pilot on the steamer Dubuque. Wo weic couii'.ig down tuo river witu two uargea iu low, jutt 03 the Sidney was, and were at Clinton. My partner was on watch, but as wu were soon to go through a bridge there, which is by tho way one of tbe most difficult to pass ou the river, I was called up. Well I backed her out and got into the middle of thu river, so that I thought we could drop down through the draw as slick as a whistle. We started ahead, and just as we got down close to the bridge, too close to stop her and back up, shu truvy a sudden turn and awny went one of thu barge's against the pa-r.ftiid Wiuiin the bottom of the river iu nu instant. I tell you gentle men I was so mad at that boat I could have Hogged her. But you see that one coincidence is a forcible il lustration of what 1 am telling you. Boats are just like animals exactly, and unless a man is up to their tricks they will get awuy with him cvcr.y time and generally just at the wrong time. A man who fol lows the river for a number of jears will become thoroughly acquainted with the channel, but he must become acqu tinted with the craft he is to handle before ho is safe." "It takes grit to be a pilot. Tne best pilot in the j continually liable to au accident. Think of the responsibility tint tests upon the shoulders oi a passen ger packet pilot. hie wrong move might land hundreds of souls in a watery sep ulchre. He must keep his senses about htm. He must be ever mindful of his duty and then, the darned boat is liable to act the fool, aud be will he blamed for il." nonntv Bnilrtiatr IMtOHATK. 24 Estate of Michael Hiexiuger, de ceased.
