Andrew Ward was fined $i and cost; for intoxication in the police court thi: morning. Albert Amimrg. ot Moline, was re leased from jail this morning on dismis sal of tbc case against him for burglary of the lower mill store, bv Magistrate Bennett. Sight I'rwwierN. Some time last night burglars who were evidently more in search of food than gold, entered Schuett's butcher shop on Moiine avenue and got away with big piece of bokigua sausage. They also broke into the cellar of Mr. Brn Hank residence, corner of Twenty-sixth slree and Fifth avenue, and helped themselves to jelly, milk, cake, etc. They made no effort to enter the upper part of the house and from the looks of what they left, could not have cone away hungry Joy t borrow. A sad occurrence horrified those w ho attended the picnic of the North Dave port Mission Sunday school at OfTerman Island Saturday. A number of the boy were in swimming, -the shallow wal which surrounds the island heme ilceme safe. About 4 o'clock Edwin Stanley who was in the water with the others, stepped in a bole, slr.ingled and s ink The others tried to save him, but the could not. An alarm i given and number hurried to the shore. The bod was recovered un I all efforts at rcausc tation were futile. The deceased was 1 years of age, a bright, nnnly youth, o good promise und held in great esteem by his man v friends. He would have graduated from school No. 4 into the high school next Thursday, standin: second among the bovs in a class of U' The t'olori-d Brethrm. The colored Baptist ministers of the tri-citles held a meeting in Davenpoi yesterday afternoon that was not alto gether harmonious. Rev. Wilson, of this city, was the target for considerable cen sure, which was burled at him in force It is said that the reverend gcnllem was not even allowed the privilege of de fending himself, being hissed down upon arising to his feet. The cause of all th spleen against Bro. Wilson is said arise from the fact that he has been very successful in church work, especial ly in raising funds to pay off the indebt edness of parishes. His success has evi dently filled his co laborers in the vine yard with the ugly spirit of jealousy, which broke forth in a violent outburst yesterday. Notwithstanding the o,pofi. tion manifested against bim. Bro. Wilson proposes to continue his good work with renewed vim. Andaluitia will Olrlirate. Mr. Henry Von Ach, of Andalusia, was in the city this morning, for the purpose of ordering bills and making other ar rangements for a grand Fourth of July celebration at his town. The exercises will take place on Saturday, and will be of a very interesting character. The or ator of the. day will tie Messrs. M. M. Corbett and W. H. Ltindy, of this city, while music will be furnished by Res torff's military baud of Duvunport. Mr. Lorenzo Parmcntcr will be president of the day. The procession will leave An dalusia for Kelt's grove at 10 a. m., which will include the rag-muffin parade, with Bro. Gardner's Lime Kiln club. In the afternoon there will be a prize live pigeon shooting match by the Edgington gun club, in which all neighboring clubs re invited to complete. There will also be boat and sack racing. On tbe whole Andalusia proposes to do herself proud on that day, and it looks as though she would PROH I BITION CONVENTION. Whs! wm Den at the Meeting at the Rack 1st an hoaae Kat araay Anerneen. Pursuant to call the county prohibition convention was held at the Kock Island house Saturday afternoon. There were present: Alfred Williams, H. L. Bullen and N. C. Tyrrell, of Moline; J. H. Reeves. of Rock Island, and Robert Maxwell and George Allen, of Port Byron, Rev. I. Read Rock Island. George Allen was called to the chair, and Alfred Wil- iams, was made secretary. The call was read, and it was thought desirable to ap point four delegates to the State Prohibit ion convention to be held at Spring- eld next Wednesday, in addition to the ono delegate, mis. m. r.. aictzgar, or Moline already appointed by the W. C. V. It was suggested that four dele gates be selected and after due deliberation these were chosen: The Rev. A. Harper. Port Ryroo; The Rev. I. W. Read, Rock Island; H. L. Bnlien, Moline; Fred E. White, Moline. Messrs. Williams and Allen agreed to head a list of subscriptions with 15 each toward defraying the expenses of the delegates. On motion of the Rev. I. W. Read, couim'ttee of two from Rock Island, two from Moline and one one from Port By ron, was appointed to perfect for the coming campaign, a county organization. This committee was made to consist of Kingsbury, J. H. Reeves, Rock Isl and; N. C. Tyrrell, A. Williams, Moline: and the Rev. A. Harper, Port Byron. The committee was empowered to expand and enlarge itself by the addition of one additional member from each township in the county. Mlvrr Kiplrt. The War Eagle will be down Wednes day evening. Tte Pitt sburg is due back Thursday for St. Louis. The St Paul will leave for the north Wednesday evening. The Sidney will be up at 9 o'clock to night and clear for the north at daybreak. The Dick Clyde took several hundred people to Offerman's island yesterday. It is rumored that Matt Sullivan, late chief clerk ot of the lennesaee river slesmer, Henry A. Tyler, and now of the Diamond Jo steamer Sidney, has been offered and will accept the position of chief clerk on the Citv of Florence. Tom Boland has bought the Minnie Herman from a party at Reed's Linding, and is having her fitted out with upiier works 45 feet aft and 15 feet for ward of the pilot house. Frank Lathrop and partner are doing the work in the slougb, just north of the levee. Captain Boland says the boat will stand bim in f 3,8tW when ready to leave. She is in tended for the Missouri river where the captain has secured a contract from the Northwestern Feed company and the Ohio Feed company of St. Paul, to trans port 2,100 tons of coal between points on the Missouri. The excursion on the Centennial down the liver Saturday night, was anything but a success. In the first place the boat did not arrive until 9 o'clock at night from the south. Persons intent upon going became discouraged, and those who had gathered upon the shores on both sides of "the river dispersed before the arrival of the steamer. The boat go! off at 10 o'clock and when about three miles below the city became fast on saud bar and remained there until o'clock yesterdi-y morning, when the Mary Morion on her down trip pulled her off and started her back. There was no music on board and the excursionists must have had a weary time of it. The Centennial went north in the afternoon Hay front the Headlight. Conductor Hitcbcoct brought in train of four hundred Turners from Peor ia yesterday to attend the picnic at Mo line. Tlierc were four car loads. It is now stated that tbe first pafnenge.r train on tbe C, B. & N., between Fultou and East Dubuque, will be put on about the first of July. The C, M. &, St. P. has altered its special rate somewhat, making the fare from Rock Island to Chicago or Council Bluffs 9 with $4 rebate at destination This is one to protect local traffic. An additional tr.iiu has been put un the C, M. & St. P. road between Racine and Western Union junction, to connect vtfth the limited express. The new ar rangement will not interfere with the running of trains into Rock Island, how ever. The bill presented in congress early this spring, authorizing the Chicago, Bur lington & Northern railroad company to build a combined wagon and railroad bridge at Dubuque, passed Saturday Oen . Weaver presented bill. It is given on pretty good authority that the Eist Shore road expects to reach Dubuque over the present bridge and that in the event that satisfactory arrangements are made, a bridge will be built at Eagle Point, when the business of the road far as Dubuque is concerned, will war rant sueb au investment. Irishman Again. Him k Island, June 21 Editor Aunts: Be kind enough allow me space in your paper to state tne position which old Joe takes. He is like a ship without a rudder and an in sane captain; all the crew trying to take so many different courses at the same time. The Knights of Labor that were formerly District No. 13, have shown their feelings towards him and are ignor ing Ins dirty sheet on account of Ills rod flag principles. I would like to ask old Joe why he don't give us the narnea of those who Btopped his dirty sheet when he gives the names of those, who pay "cash for the liock Inlander." Old Joe is a great man for fishing, and when he couldn't fish and catch to suit himself in those lakes that Fcrron is interested in, through spite be keepa criticizing and trying to make little of Ferron. Allow me to tell Joe that there is a new lake formed by Magistrate Bennett; it is an artificial lake, for which Mr. Ben nett has received a supply of water under false pretenses, and if old Joe fancies the kind of fish that are in it, he may have them; they are only skip-jacks, and very few ear for them. - iBWBJtAjr. THE REBELLING BUTCHERS. The 'lty' Meve a Sir. HaeRlncs Temporary lajaaetlon the Abattoir. A great deal of interest is manifested as to what will be the action of the city in its present condition of being deprived of the use and management of its abat toirs under the recent injunction of Mr. August Huesing. The first step it is understood will be a motion before Judge Smith, of the circuit court who issued the present injunction, by the city's counsel for a new and larger bond. The law re quires that in such cases injunctions. etc. the petitions for such service must be accompanied by a sufficient bond. The amount required in this matter was $500, which the city claims is too small and which certainly seems so. .A motion will therefore be made for a new bond with specifications that the amount be in creased to $5,000, at least. It is apparent now that there will be a fierce legal warfare between the city's counsel and the attorneys of the revolting butchers. The city is determined to dig solve the injunction which has been placed upon it, and the butchers headed by Mr. Huesing, are determined that the injunction be held, it is said, until the present city administration steps out, when they hope to amend their griev ances before a new council and new mayor. It is to be hoped the allegations of tte butchers will be speedily met and ispensed with by the city and that i' may assume control of its slaughtering and inspecting quarters, which is es sential to the health of the city. Mr. Huesing has engaged as counsel for the rebelling butchers, Judge I. O- Wilkinson, William Jackson, Esq., and Hon. Charles, Dunham, of Ciencseo while the city's side will be represented by Messrs. W. H. (Jest, E. D. Sweeney, M. M. Sturgeon and City Attorney M. E Sweeney. To be Here. Sure. Dr. S. C. Plummer is in receipt of a personal letter from. Gen. W. T. Sher man, who is president of the society of the Army of tbe Tennessee, in which Ihe distinguished general states that he will be in Rock Island, September 15 and 16, without fail. He leaves for California soon to attend the Grand Army meeting there in August, and then will go British America, traveling eastwatd over the Canadian Pacific road to Winnipej and w ill be in St. Paul on September 10 and arrive here about the 12lh, in order that be may rest until tbe society meets A M rather Tree. The following item appears in tbe Du buque Herald under the heading "A first class barometer:" Galena has a tree which has proved one ot thn most relia b!e barometers. Tbe same has been watched for the past two years by Mr. Edward Martield, one of tbc partners of the brm of Clune & Martield, grain deal ers, as to its predictions, and the gentle man states that be has never known it to fail. It predicts rain or a storm by turn' ing its leaves upwards. This it will do, in some instances, twentv-four hours in advance and at other times not less than four hours. The tree is in front of tbe residence of Dr. W. S. Crawford on Bench street and opposite the grain house Clue & Martield. Scientists are unable to explain this strange phenomenon. is supposed the roots of tbe tree are im bedded in some large opening under neath. The tree barometer will now fie watched with unusual interest henceforth by weather prophets. The tree is what is known as a "mouutain locust" and is very rare in this latitude. The Galena irazette adds: Dr. Craw ford has been engaged since the appear ance of this interesting item, in looking for the above interesting described mountain locus," and as soon as he dis covers it he is going to send to Boston for some more scientists to come and ex plain "this strange phenomenon." In the meantime, local weather prophets will watch the tree as soon as Dr. Craw ford discovers it. Maville JohBHton.

The streets on the route of the n arch ing Turners on Saturday evening were lined with spectators, and from begin ning to end it was a continued ovation. About three hundred were supplied with torches, and three bands the Pekin band, the Light Guard band of this city and the Davenport drum corps played tunes to which all kept step. Tbe busi ness houses and shops were nearly all decorated. Many arches and lines span ned the streets to which was affixed or suspended from banners with inscriptions welcoming the stranger visitors. At the opera house where the procession terminated, long tables were spread and soon every man had sandwiches and beer, not. though, until Mayor Scbillinger had wel comed the visitors to the city in one of his short cbaractenstic speeches, in which much is said in a few words. Conrad Grantz responded. The balance of the evening was spent in pure and un adulterated fun. the lJe kin band played several very difficult pieces in a masterly manner and the Light Guard equaled, if it did not surpass them in harmonious sounds. About a dozen got on the stage and played tbrough fine tooth combs, elic iting sounds of applause. Prof. Witter was also encored after one of bis songs which was finely sung.
