An improved process of glass blowiog

extraordinary floe quality of glass turned

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

to produce a5 clear, clean and bright a

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 alarm from the Seventh ward at

burning ef a barn near Augustnna col

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

The barn was a new one and valued

The ( hieaeo, Burlington A Northern
to Build 400 Miles More or Track.
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. &

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. Iieece,

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.

A Good Investment.
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

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
