It is said that it is the iuteulion of Commodore Davidson to equip the War Eagle during this winter, with a ncwiy invented electric engine.

The Pinkerton agency says that it bus not yet dropped the C, I!. I. & P. ex press robbery business ami murder of Nichols which occurred the 13th of April last. The impression prevails among the officers of the road that the robbery was J i ne by men familiar with railroad and alro express business. Superintendent Koyce thinks that the matter may soon V cleared up. It is bis belief that the money stolen, which was in large bills, has never been used; that sooner or later Hie parlies who got it will try lo paw the notes, and that then detection and arrest will follow. Another Improi-ement. CoJ. Baylor has made another improve ment upon the arsenal, and one that the people of Rock Island will very greatly appreciate. It is the connecting of the commandant's headquarters with this city by telephone, and thus bringing our citizens into more intimate relationship with an institution with which there is always more or less coinrriunicatiuu. Co!. Baylor ba eommtneed a good work ei HORROR BROUGHT HOME. Ira, . A. Hair of this City, Perishes t' fa tiie Terrible Wreck on the C, SI. St. P. Koad. To read of a terrible catastrophe ins volving the loss of many lives in frightfoi manoer, always while carrying with He hock, awakens those human sympathies which go out to the afflicted in tune of misfortune or grief. The tid in of such as accident as occurred on the C, M. & St. P. road yesterday morning, and of which a detailed ac count is given in another column of this paper, while impressing all with sadness and terror, the accompaning horror and indescribable (rightfulness of the calam ity are not fully realized until it is learned thst some one from our own city is among the lost. It will be many a heart in Hock Island that will be plunged into grief when it is learned that Mrs. G. A Marr, of this city, from all present in dications, was among those who perished in that terrible wreck. In the Chicago Tribune's report of the catastrophe apH.ars the following: One of the guests of tiie Grand Pacific said that a friend of Mrs. Marr, the wife of a civil engineer formerly 'at Rock Isl and, called at the company's office yester- lay and inquired if that lady was among the missing. He said that nc naa accom panied Mrs. Marr to the depot night be fore last. She would not take a sleeper, saying that she could not sleep well, and preferred to travel in the day coach. She boarded this particular car, and is believed to be among those who lost their lives iu the wreck. The InlerOrean says: Mrs. Marr wife of a civil engineer at Rock Island, III., came from Houghton, Mich., to visit friends near Chicago. She boarded the wrecked train for the north. Before starting she told her friends that she had rested so poorly the last time that she traveled in a sleeper that she in tended traveling this time in the coach. Her friends tried to dissuade her, but she was determined. She took tbe coach, and, it is presumed, perished. Mr. Marr has been tor sometime en gaged in making government surveys at Portage lake canal, Michigan. Hough ton is on that lake, and as the Inter O' tii'i said the Mrs. Marr whom it is fear ed has perished, had recently been there. t is probable that it is the Mrs. Marr of Rock Island who is meant. An Amirs re porter called upon Maj. Mckenzie this morning id wiiose department or service Mr. Marr was engaged, aud that gentleman said he had been at St. Paul the firt of the week, and while there learned that Mr. Marr aud bis wife were ex pected there shortly. It is al together probable, therefore, that the lady was enroute to meet her husband when she met her frightful death. 1 Mrs. Marr was the bride of about eight mouths. Ilcr maiden name was Cordelia lJutler, and Mr. Marr mar ried her at liuffalo, N, T., February 2t!i, last, bringing her immediately to this city, aud their home was at the Harper house until his duties took him awav, but they expected to return to Rock Island during the winter, or next spring at any rate.' During her brief res idence in this city, Mrs. Marr bail made many friends here, as in Davenport and! Moline. Sbc was always cheerful and bright, and had a happy faculty of enter taining that made her a popular favorite with the guests at the hotel, and in the circles in which she moved. At the time of President Cleveland's marriage to Miss Frankie Folsom last June, Mis. Marr furnished some interest ing intelligence concerning the new first lady of the land, which appeared in the Aunt's at that time, Mrs. Marr having submitted to an interview on the subject, and being a life long acquaintance and schoolmate of the president's bride, as well as having had a personal acquain tance with Mr. Cleveland for years, she was enabled to give to the public some facts that had not been made known. Mrs. Marr and Mrs. Cleveland had been brought up together, their families being neighbors, and in their early days were members of the same Sunday school class, and the interview with her on a subject that was occupying the attention of the nntion at the time, was widely read, copied andom cmented upon. Mr. aud Mrs. Marr left Rock Island the middle of last June, going first to Colora do, and stopping here on their way east, later on in the season. They expected to make this city their home again, as soon as there was work for Mr. Marr in the government office here. A Poor Kxrune. The Union of this morning seeks to make political capital out a report from Andalusia that Geo. Woodruff, who is stumping the county in the interests of the and people's ticket, had been drunk there, and blames Sharp Sil vis for it all . In the first place Mr. Sil vis has nothing to do with Mr. Woodruff. The latter is making speeches over the county in the interest of tbe Kuights of Labor ticket, which, because that ticket includes Mr. Silvis, does not make that gentleman responsible for the mural con duet of all who advocate bis election. If a candidate must be responsible fur the conduct of all who would desire bis election, Morgan would not stand Tery high, as the residents along Second ave nue have become thoroughly disgusted long ago with the drunken hiliarity tbat accompanies the yells, "hurrah for Mor gan!" at all hours of the night. This conduct is displayed by men who are kuown to be republican wheel-horses, and have held offices which that party has secured for them. The way these drunken politicians go howling through the streets for Morgan would not be tol erated in any city where police regulation went for anything. Uaj h Frein the Headlight.

In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and tbe great tide of immis gration into these states has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable.

W.B- tarry Explains MrWabney'e An imas, anil Relates ssne Molld Trnths.. - Carbon Cliff. Oct. 27. In looking over last week's Union under the head of "Hampton Hap)enings," I still find the same mud Blinging style used that has characterized all the writings of the Hampton correspondent eince this cam- Daien besnn. 1 had not imennea 10 ibkc any part in replying to any of the charges which Mr. McJSaliney naa maae agaoioi Mr. Silvis, believing that when any one resorts to the contemptible practice of slurring and trying lo injure the charac ter and reputation of an individual sim ply because he is a candidate for office, that he is only injuring himself in the es timation of the public. It must be ap parent to everyone who has read the Hampton correspondence to the Union that a great deal of personal feeling has been exhibited by the writer against Mr. Silvis. And why? Simply because the correspondent, Mr. McNabney. who was a candidate for the office of town clerk last spring, was not elected. This is the sum and substance of tbe whole matter, and it cannot successfully be denied. Now tbe idea that Mr. Silvis is responsi ble for tbe defeat of Mr. MeNdmey is preposterous, and for several reasons. It is well known that Mr. Silvis was sick on election day, and could not attend the polls; he was attended by Dr. Hun ter, of Hampton, and if such was not the case (as Mr. McNabney has intimated) why, in all reason, did be not get a statement frum Dr. Hunter to that effect, and thereby prove the imputation which he is trving so hard to make the public believe? The truth of the mailer is, Mr. McNabney was defeated by his own neighbors residents of the village of Hampton aud vicinity. I have talked with several citizens of Hampton about this matter men or influence whose word cannot be impeached, and they told me that especially did they work against Mr. McMabnev, aud that tn anv event his defeat would have been certain. A;ain, r. McNabney would hive us believe that he and his friends will carry the town of Hampton for Morgan. That being the case, aud Mr. McNabney wielding such powerful influence, why did he not use it for his own election last spring, and not say that Sharp Silvis de feated him, when Sharp was not at the election at all? Oh, consistency, thou art a jewel! He further says that he is informed that when Marx Hauberc ran for shei- iff against Mr. Ankrum six years ago, that Mr. Silvis was at home, sick. In reply to this statement 1 will say of my own personal knowledge that Sharp Sil vis both voted and worked for Mr. Hau- berg'8 election and against Ankrum at that lime, as also did ids brother !. S. Sdvis. and thev both u-ed llieir teams 10 haul voters to the polis. Now one ot two things is certain. Either Mr. McNabney 'e informant has told that which is abso lutely untrue or else he has willfully per verted Ibe facts in the case. As 1 stalid before I had not intended to go into this newspaper controversy, but when Mr. Mcabney assails with sucti unwarranted accusations as the above, the reputation of a man who has tieen a friend and a neighbor to me for years, I deem it my duty as a friend to refute them. The question is asked (tn fear that such is thc case) is Silvis entitled to the support of the k. of L. I answer most assuredly be is, and none know it better than the K. of L.. an organization composed of men of intelligence ,who know their rights and have the courage to.votc for them. We arc well aware of the fact that the re publican prty have tried every means in their powor to secure the K. of L. vote for their monopolistic lawyer candidate for congress W. H. Gcsl. as well as for Mr. Morgan, the republican candidate for sheriff. If any one can show good reasons why either of the ataive candi dates arc entitled,to the K. of. L. support why don t tuev produce it. I hey have failed decidedly, up to the present to show any argument whatever, why the K. of L. should rally at the monopolistic call of the republican bosses to the sup port of the above named candidates, for indications goto prove that they arc the only candidates for which the political bosses are particularly working for, will ing to sacrifice the balance of the ticket to secure the election of Gest and Mor gan. It is pretty generally known, that to further their schemes in this direc tion the wire pullers and political bosses of the republican parly have secured the services of Robert Bennett, who at one time was a leading tii'ure in the ranks of the K. of L , la help bolster up the cause of the railroad corporations by advocating the caudi dacy of Wm. ii, Gest, who for years has been a conspicious representative ot rail road interests as their paid aud retained attorney. The means used by which the conversion of Mr. Bennett was brought about, we are notable to state, butjtuis we do know. That a few days ago Captain Bcunett, of Moline, made a visit to some of the leading republican manufacturing firms of Moline for the purpose of mak ing a campaign assessment, aud when some of the parties ohjected on the ground that they had already paid enough toward that purpose, the reply was maae that this money should only be used in Moline, and especially toward securing the election of Mr. Morgan. Thus showing that even a man's great goodness will not elect him to office without the help of tbe money which they have been crying so strong ly against. It is possible that Mr. Mor gan is not aware that any money is being used for his election, but we think it im probable, and to substitute our doubts in the matter, we would simply refer him to Mr. John vogle. the genial proprietor of a saloon in Rapids City and; ask him 10 expiaiu me circiimsiauies 01 me in terview which he had with Mr. Pal O'Mara, and how it came that Mr. O Mara gave him $10 to setup Morgan beer .to the bovs. also claiming that he fO'Mara had the appointing of the deputy sheriff if Mr. Morgan was elected. It would seem tbat the relationship existing be tween Mr. O'Mara and Mr. Morgan was of a very confidents! nature from these circumstances, and that if any money was used to help the cause alon; it would certainly be placed where it would do the most good, for the disburs ing agents would certainly have to ac count for the manner in which they used the money. But, then of course, every one knows that there is no money spent for beer to aid in the election of Mr, Morgan. Oh, no. It is rumored that Mr. Robert Bennett will speak in this place in the interest of Gest and Morgan. 1 will say in refer ence to to this matter that the people of Carbon Cliff bave heard him speak sever al times on tbe wrong practice as he then styled it. of sending railroad lawyers to the legislature and to congress, and it would seem that his advocacy of Mr. Gest 's election to congress would be in strange harmony with his former speech es. It is of course expected that Mr. Bennett will carry the K. of L. with him in the support of Gest and Morgan. But the K. of L , are not bound down to the one man's power, and the 2d of No vember will demonstrate the fact. The question is asked in tbe Hampton cor respondence, is Sharp Silvis entitled to the support, of tbe K. of L. I an swer most assuredly he is, and none know it better tban the K. of L, and as a pointer I will state for the benefit of oms that u It will Vt th wm tbftt Carbon Cliff assembly, No. 417S, will sup port Silvis Bolrdly for ' sheriff, with only four rotes in the entire assembly against him, and when the very prominent cit izen of this place, who had made such a careful canvass of the town as referred to in tbe Moline Kep'Mimn some time ago, or anv one else says tbat this town is going for Morgan, he simply doesfnot know what be is talking about- Sharp Bit vis' friends will give him an overwhelm-1 majority on the Snd day of November, proving to his opponents that they have based their calculations on an imaginary strength which they have never possess-. ed.
