4 t: CLEAR AS CRYSTAL." Iniprovrd rtwm of nanafaftnre at the Rvrk litlanit Cilass. Works. An improved process of glass blowiog has been introduced at the Rock Island glass works, and the success of the new arrangementjs assured a3 a result of the extraordinary floe quality of glass turned oit yesterday morning, when the im proved methods were tried for the first tinic. Mr. P- L. Mitchell, after diligently seirching all 07er the country for modes of producing a clearer glass than tbe coaipany hid been previously enabled to turn out, ran across a Frenchman not long since, who claimed to have the rem edy desired, and during the summer and fall cessation of work at the factory he was permitted to pat in his invention, by which the blowing is done by artificial gas, and the company is so well satisfied with the result that the Frenchman's pro cess has Iifcn adopted, which in the fu ture enables the Rock Island gjfis works to produce a5 clear, clean and bright a crystal as there is made anywhere in the world. And while Mr. Mitchell and the others of the company are to be coni'ruulated on the result of the experiment, they are to be commended loo, fjr the verprise they have manifested. If all u. T'.ock Wand V industries would make an cxamnie of this, there would be no reason for goirg abroad for products which are made at home. With these advantageous facilities, the U)ck Hand window glass works ex pects to double its busins the coming -. season, and it deserves to. A samule of the gliss blown by the new process may be seen, at Mike Ma ium's Tivoli HH on Second avenue, where inspection is invited. Poller I'olntH. For being drunk aud disorderly.

A desperate fight between three coal miners, who broke into the house of John Fezltr, near the cross roads, between Davenport and Blue Grass, occurred Sun day night, in which Ftzler shot and prob ably fatally wounded James Bell, one of the miners. John Case, of Port Byron, who was sent to the penitentiary a year ago for concealing stolen property, and whose sentence expired a short time since, was in the city yesterday morning. He thinks prison life wrought a great chance for the better in him, and speaks in high terms of the treatment he received while there. October and the 1'atholfra. In tbe Catholic church the month of October is especially consecrated to the devotion of the rosary, and on the first Sunday is celebrated the feast in com mrmorution of the battle of Lepanto, which broke the power of the Turks, a victory which is ascribed to the advocacy of the Virgin Mary . Pope Leo XIII. has renewed the prescriptions of last year concerning services for this month. From October 1 to November 2. five decades at least of tbc rosary, with the litanies, are to be recited evpry day in all parish churches and in public sanctuaries dedi cated to the Mother of God, as also in other churches to be selected by the ordi nary.

Coal Valley InrtulKen In a Hurt orCoa llacrattoa The Ylliase l,iss, laHDranee. Kte. Coal Valley, Oct. 12. The heaviest fire that has ever visited this place oc curred last evening about 6:30 o'clock. An old gentleman was lighting the lampi in Guisler 's old saloon building. As be reports, tbe cbandaliers fell to the floor, aod tbe explosion set lire to the building. When it was discovered, all efforts were made that could be to extinguish the flames, bat to do avail. The building stands opposite the R. I. & P. depot, within a'oout forty feet of II. Ciughey's dwelling bouse on the west, and adjoin iug a lot of frame buildings about tix in number besides several old stables in the rear. The heat was very great. The wind was blowing toward the 11. I. & P. depot, and it was with great difficulty that it was saved only by the exertions of the tiiint. Del Morgan. Mr. H. Caughey's house was saved by the exer tions of its occupants. Two frame houses were owned by Mrs Guisler and feter Mulvaney. Th'ev were very dry and the flames extended rapidly over them, and in an hour they were most ly consumed. The furniture was near ly all taken out of the buildings that were burned. The occupants were Mrs. Guisler. David Moran and Peter Mulvan ey. On east of the burned buildings stands L. B Thomas' brick stove bouse; rt was occupied by Battersby & Sons as a general merchandise store. Here the fire was ar rested as it has a zink roof, but it was thought it could not be and the cowls were taken out, which arc dam -aired considerably. Sir. Carghey also took the furniture out of his house, and it :s damaged greatly. The Itiscue hose boys from KocH Island ' ame oil', but the tUnies nt-ie well extinguishe. when they arrived, but under the Hani Chief Frank knox. they put the machine to work and did a good job in drowning out llie smould ering ruins.

The boys of lh:s company turned out promptly and were reinforced by members of the oVuer companies and with the Rescue curt Hiid the city fire engine proceeded to tbe R , I. ifc P. depot, where Superintendent Sudlow bad a train in waiting to convt v Chief Knox and his men to Coal Valley. The intelligence was first received here at 6:50; at 7:23 an engine and flat car with Engineer Perry at the throttle was in readiness, aud at 7.50 just an hour after the news was received, the Hock Island firemen were at Coal Valley. The fire was under good headway when the Rock Island'company arrived, hot the firemen from this city were not long in control! it, and at 3 o'clock this morning le turned to the city. A BARN M'KNF.n. The alarm from the Seventh ward at 7:05 this morning was occasioned by the burning ef a barn near Augustnna col lege on Seventh avenue. The barn was used by the Union Street Railway com pany as quarters for the bill horses, but all were gotte" out salely. Though the building was totally destroyed, the Gilpin hose company arrived in time to rescue adjoining property. The barn was a new one and valued at $700. Several barrels of gasoline oil were burned, together wilh p.iint, bard coal and other goods stored within. The Cables started for the fire, but I he Gilpin? had two streams playing on the building and were doing all that could be done. si the company turned back The oi igin of the file is not known.

It is a strong melodrama, wilh a powerfully told story, full of eeusalional incidents. Tbe play is admirably acted by a strong cast, and since the night of its production some of the unnecessarily long scenes have been judiciously short ened, and the performance runs smoothly and within a reasonable time. Schoolcraft, Coes & Shorlis' minslrc gave their new and novel entertainment at Harper's theatre last evening, before an unusually large audience. The pros gramme abounds in new and striking features, the singing being excellent iu all respects and the jokes new and original. Schoolcraft's local hit on tho "red nosed parson," who abandoned tbe pnlpit to cu ter the political field, brought down the house. Shortis, the eminent banjo and violin player, charmed the audienc", Schoolcraft and Seaman kept up the rip ple of mirth, and Coes maintained the dignity. The after piece, 'D.rctor Paste Cure." was above the average minstrel farc.i-s.

The special car which recently conveyed Messrs. Stone Jfc Ripley, of the Chicago, Burlington fc Quincy, over the new tracks of the Chicago Burlington & Northern, re turned Saturday to Chicago. The car is tbe property of Mr. Stone, b it was sent back to Chicago while Messrs Stone and Ripley continued lheirVip oorth to tto Canadian Pacific. It h3 been determined by the management of the new company to lay four huudred miles of track, and to be gin the work as soon as possible. One thing which has not been de termined yet, however, is where these 401) miles shall be built. The company has two surveys completed, one north up j Ike Chippewa valley and the other directly west from Dubuque, and which of these the road will build upon has not been settled. If this lins is built went from Dubuque it will be put together just as the road east of the river, that is, it will be built strictly for business and not for speculation . The track on the cast side is built to avoid great curves and heavy grades, and they have no curve on the road with is more than four de grees. As a result the road is enalned to pull much larger trains thin any other road, and run faster as well. The road is giving a little pleasure ex; cur-ion to the pass club of St. Paul and Minneapolis, which starts from there to day, arriving in Chicago some time to moirow. The company is grvaily disap pointed about being unable to gel its pus singer coaches from the Pullmau com pany who are nuking them, and therefore hive been compelled to postpone the opening for passenger traffic. Mr. E. Hoyt, superintendent of the commissary department of the C., B. & Q road, was in the city last week aud ar ranged for a storage house for the pro visions for the dining car service to be inaugurated on the R'Kk Island division Jetobcr 31. The store house will be in this city and the dining car crew w ill re-siii- here. The diner will be attached to No 1, e- "vag in at night, and No. 2 go ingou. . Hie morning. The car will run only to Mc iora, where it will be switched off and cciuu back on the next train. A t at- Statement.

And for the benefit of the smart man of the I rUoit, who never was known to get at actual facts in any item of public interest until the Arous opened the way, we will state tLnt the corres pondence in yesterday's Ti:ru, republish ed in the Argus of last evening, was pre pared and written by John Corwin, who writing up tbe most closely contested congressional districts of the slate, and in each instance makes a personal canvass of the district before expressing an opin ior..

Zuii'tt, OH- 11, 186 The article in last week's r.ion from Rose Hill has aroused the indignation of the peo ple of "Ihe upper end" irrespective of religion and politics, where the Rev. W. S. Hayes is well and favorably known, save by a vtry few narrow mind ed partisans, who, because Rev. W, S Hayes being a man of learning aud had the manhood to assert his principles and vole as be saw fil, not upon Ihe issues of a quarter of a century ago, but those of the present day and for the future. lie was as a majority of our nation was, as ("Watcher says,") for "Grover." For which "crime." as these would-be-Chrls-tians called it, few of whom would not contribute a cent towards bis salary, nor attend services, and even some few I have heard declared the marriages solemnized by a democratic minister were void. Rest assured these bitter partisans number but few of our people. We are friendly and have a warm place in our hearts for the scholarly minister and charitable soldier, Kev. W. S. Hayes. His letter will have a marked influence in the upper end for the Hon. . H.

An Independent Citizen or Bewlln Olvea HI Opinion or the Part-on. To the Editor of the Argus: Bowi.ino, III., Oct. 5 The Union of last week, in speaking of your reference to Morgan's prohibition record, says "he did not have a jng at the Coe fair, nor a keg of beer in tbe tent at the encamp ment on Vandruff's island." In reading this I was led to believe that tho idea conveyed was that the candidate in oppo sition to Mr. Morgan had whisky at the Coo fair and beer at the encampment. Now in justice to the opposition candi date, I must say the reference made by the Union, is slanderous and false in the extreme. It is my pleasure to be ac quainted wilh Mr. Morgan's opponent, and it was my pleasure to meet him as lie drove on the grounds the only day he attended the encampment and to be in -his c.iuipany a good part of the afternoon, and I know that he did not have auy spirituous liquor of any kind on ttie ground. Anyone that says he did tells a falsehood. The Union is trying to do just what Morgan is doing straddle bis (Morgan's) prohibition record hut it should tell the truth. If you. Mr. Editor, will look up Mr. Morgan's record on the temperance question tor the last ten years and compare it with hia ac tions, you will find that he has always been as inconsistent as at present. When we first learned in this section that Mr. Morgan's health had broken down, we were very sorry, anil sympa thized wilh the man. We were sorry to lose such a valuable man in tbe church, but we arc tired of his cant: "I am broken down in health and must quit preaching." Is it impossible for a man in as poor health as he claims to be, to do the amount of talk and speech miking he is doing? Ce r- taiulv he roust have made a mistake when he made that assertion, or else his health has greatly improved lately. So sis one w ho votes as he pleases and would be put dow n as a Doubtful.

Anyone who has ever dealt in land, knows that no investment of money will so surely and uiiicklr Yield a return, as such a venture if careful! v made. To the absolute safety o" a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of raU) of interest which can be oblaimd on any safe loan. In Kansas ami Neb raska especially lands arc raiding in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stabilily. The giKid seasou and the great ti le of iinmis gralion into these slates has made invest ment there doubly safe ami desirable. The climate of Southern Ncbruska and of Kansas, fiee as it is from the long rigourous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richuesa and productive- capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. 1 o tbe far mer the; hold out special inducements Cheap land, easvterm of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost aud wilh less labor than is required to pay rent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money he has invested in it.

The unfounded charge in an item in the Union that Sharp Silvis tried to in timidate the workmen who bad slruck for better wages during tbc time the Central street car railway was being built iu this city, should be contradicted, lor some people may believe the foul aspersion. A cenilcman connected with the Ilcpublir.m at the lime told the w riter yesterday that Silvis was never there in any capacity Lwhatcycr, aud that he had ample oppor- tunitv to see him if be had been there. The matter of protecting the scabs who were brought here to fill lbs strikers' places could not be avoided. Sheriff Relicker was up most of the lime in person, and had special deputies lo asMsl him to maintain what was then and is now the law. Mayor Schillinger made a speech to the disaffected persons at that time, advising them to lake the 1 Ho per! day ottered bv the contractor from Mus catine, which they did not do. This is another instance of the false, un fair and disreputab'e means used by the ood, morality party to defeat a political opponent. Dissolution Holies.
