TH E CCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER -18, '1886.'
R. R. CABLE. What the President of the II. I. P. has to taj' of the far hi and I'Dion lepot. President R. R. Cuble, of the C, R-1. & P. road, arrived id the city last even inc. and this uinrninK he was seen ii bis elegant priTate coach which had been ide-tracked near the R I. & P. depot by an Akcs reporter. Mr. Cable was, as usual, busy, but he lent his ear and patience to the visitor, who proceeded at once to interrogate the distinguished gen tleman on the contemplated construction of new shops by the C, R. I- & P. at some point other than Chicago. It is a settled fact," eaiJ Mr. Cable "that the C, R. I. & P. must have larger shops than the present ones in Chicago. Tae demand for roiling stock is so con slanlly increasing that we must have bet ter facilities for meeting it. Our shops in Chicago are not large enough, the uumbtr of cais e turn out annually be 1111; so much larger than was the case ten years ago, when the shops were built." "Docs the C , R I & P. contemplate removing its shops from Chicago?'' "On 11c; tuat would not be economy nor policy. But in the spring we will probably build additional ones at some poiut along the line of our road." "What are the reooiremeuls of a town d-siring the hteaiiou of these shops? What propositions should be made?" "We bave not asked for any proposi lions a vet, ihougii mail towns have ex pressed a desire Hint I he company ask l.ir such, in order iti.il proper application may be made." In reply to a qtiesliuii as to his views upoD the L'uiou depii proposition, Mr. Cble said he was uot wiiully prepared to speak. "A Uuiou depot" he said "is a good tiling, but vrtu must know that it would put us to considerable expense, and inconvenience to back our trains down from our deii to any point be low. However, the C U. I. & P. has 0 t said that it would uot go to thai trou ble, anymore ituo it his said that it would." When told thai lliok Island was ex tremely anxious to secure the car shops, the president replied, "So 1 have heard. 1 learo that a committee has been ap poiuted to coufer on the matter. This will do uoharui. Any thing of the kind of coins; tends to help 1'ie town securing it." There was some inform ition brought out by the interview with Mr. Cable which has not been given the public before. That is that the C, R I. & P. is not con templating the. removal of its Chicago shops, but only new and additional ones aloDg its line somew here, and for securing these Rock Island's opportunities are as g) las any. Ai to the Union depot, Mr. Cable apiearei! to look upon it with favor. Mr Cable is uudecided as to how long he will be in the city. It depends entire ly upon the condition of his father, Hon. Hiram Cable, brother of the late P. L. Cable, who is critically ill at his home in Davenport. Indian Money. Editor Argus: East Sacinaw, Mich, Nov. 15. Specimen collecting is now very popular. Not )oas ago I received from Washing ion a nice box of real Indian money. The lady who sent it to me says years ago her husband was an Indian trailer, and while among the Alaska Indians he col lecled this queer currency, and now hav ing no use lor it, sent it to me. The In dian money or "wampum." as the Indians call it, is a rare seasnell an inch or more in length, twire the size around of a large knitting needle, tapering, slightly bent, and fcoliow, the value of each piece to them beiug four cents. I have quite a bit more of this Indian money than I need for my own collection, and, the ed itor willing, I will say. anyone desiring a specimen of Indiau "wampum"' may have it and welcome by sending postage and directing to me. Mks F. A. Waknkr, East Saginaw, Mich. The writer of the above communica tion very kindly encloses some samples of the queer species of the coin she de scribes, and which may be seen at the Allocs office. The coin is altogether different from that circulated by the diN fereut nations of the globe. It exceeds in its oddity even the medium of trade in Chiua, which is regarded as the strangest of all monev. The Htorin. Unwelcome winter made its appearance abruptly last night, foreshadowing its approach by a fierce cold wind accompa nied by a driving snow, a combination which made it extremely disagreeable out of doors and sent the mercury down to 18 above z-.-ro, where it was discovered by the early ri-tir this m irning. Trains ou all the roads were delayed in ronspquencc of the storm, the most seri ous block out that has been experienced in years. Trains from the east on the C, R I ifc P , were three hours late; tne Southwestern c;ime in on time, but no train left Council ISlnlls or St Paul last night on account of the stotm. A train was made up at D?s Moines but u has not reached here yet. The train from St. Paul on the new C., B. & N. due here at 8 this morning left St. Paul ten hours late, and will not ar rive until 6 tonight Other trains on all the roads are more or less delayed, and in the northwest traf fic for a time was abandoned entirely. 4'onrt t'ullingM This morning Judge Glenn stenlenccd Geo. Lambert to three years for robber;, Ream Smith to two years, and Conrad Ward to one year for burglary. John Keopping and Amos Milis were held to the January term of court by Judge Glenn last evening for stealing a horse from Ida Vanatta. The Koepping and Mills horse theiving case, which fizzled nut so far as the present indictment is concerned in the circuit court yesterday, cost the county of Rock Island $119. 70 fot witnesses from Muscatine alone, to say nothmg of the witnesses from this county. It will foot up to quite an expensive proceeding, to have so little outcome. Grand Jurymen. For the September term will reassemble at tb3 Court house on' Friday morning, JfoYi 19. BY oreT of Judge Glenii. WAYS OF THE WICKED. A Farmer Mel I p Near the f, B. t. Yard- A rret of the Robbers A Forcer Captured. JV A BOLD HOBUF.RT. I A bold robbery was committed below the C. B. & Q. yards, this city, at 3:30 yesterday afternoon- Thomas Twelftree, a farmer from near Reynolds, wag met in the early part of the afternoon by four river men, employes of the Diamond Jo linefwho were returning south from Da boqoc after the close of tte steamboat season, olae lour rascals to feed the farmer into a saloon, and after getting him pretty well saturated with benzine, got him down near Fourteenth street and the river front, where they boldly robbed him of his purse containing 2j, and a gold watch, and put out. The police were informed, and having been given an accurate de scription of the robbersf Officers Wich- man andBoland arrested one of the gang, a man named Joseph Allen, in Trostel's saloon, and the stolen watch was found in his possession. Later, Officers Bren nan and Wichman overhauled three sus picious characters at the R. I. & P. de pot, who proved to be Chris. Anderson. Thomas O'Brien and Geo. Decatur, the otber three who had taken part in the crime. The piisoners all had in their pockets railroad letters from Dubuque to St. Louis. They were four of a gang of rousters and other steamboat men who have just been discharged from the Pittsi burg, aud other Diamond Jo steamers which have lied up for the winter. This morning Officer Brennan arrested another suspicious character for being an accomplice in the bold robbery, and locked him up. A KOKOER CAUGHT. Cyrus A. Bradford, better known in this vicinity as ivrus lienton, a roof painter, has at last landed in limbo, having been arrested re cently at Council Bluffs for forgery. The particular crime now laid at bin door is not specified, but there is good reason to suppose that he is just the man who is wanted in this county for a very daring forgerv and most successful swindle. About three years ago there appeared here a fine looking, well dressed, highly educated, and apparently very shrewd young man, who gave his name as Cyrus Beutoo. lfis exploits here have been described in the Arous, but a revival of the circumstances will be interesting nevertheless. He went into the patent roll painting business, but spent more time playing cards than he did at roof painting. Id the course of time be be came arquainted with and wormed into the confidence of D.T. Snyder, of Suarstown, whom he induced to go into the roof busi ness with him. After a time Benton left here and went to Kansas. Some time after.a Kansas man named Kaughman met Snyder and said to him that he (Snyder) had sold his Kansas farm for too low a price, stating that the land should have brought at least f 1,000 more than it sold for. This was news to Snyder, who de clared that be had not sold his farm at all. Inquiry developed that the purchaser of the land had bought it through Benton. The deed was afterwards sent here, and it bore, besides Mr. Snyder's signature, the notarial seal and signature of P. O Mara, to the acknowledgment. The alleged transfer was made some time during the fall of 18S5. The theory, based on as thor ough an investigation as possible, is this. That Benton came to Rock Island and put up at the Schafer house, then kept by ieorge W. McMichael, who by the way kept no register. Mr. O'Mara's offlcj is in the same house, and he otten left the door of his office unlocked when he left the office temporarily. It is supposed tiiat Benton, who was a fine peuruau, en tered O'Mara's olHce during bis absence, stole a blank deed, filled it out with O'Mara's ink, put the seal on the docu ment, and forged O'Mara's name to the acknowledgment. Ever since ttien there has been a hot hunt for Benton, and not long since Mr. Snyder went to Kansas to nstitute suit to have the fraudulent in- trumeut set aside. It is further said, says the Moline JDix- liii.-h, that soon after Benton first arrived here, one of our local detectives identified him as the man wanted for the murder of the sheriff of Coshocton county. Ohio; hat the local detective wrote to the Ohio parties, who said that Piukerton had the matter in haod, and had 13,000 n cash to work with. Correspondence with Pinkerton was not satisfactory, as the ). d. wanted $500 for his informa tion, and Pinkerton was willing to give only lOt . A Pinkerton man came down here to see if he could not catch on. and while he was watching the 1. d., Benton skipped. Benton, it seems, was also wanted for embezzling funds from King man, the Rome, N. T , nursery man If the local detective's surmise as to Bea ton's identity and connection with the Ohio murder is correct, Benton has got ten himself into mighty serious diliiculty. POLII'K POINTS .

Anyone who has ever dealt in l&udR, knows lhat no investment of money will so surely aud quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefully made. To the absolute safely o' a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of iuterest which can lie obtained on any safe loan. In Kausas aud Neb raska especially lauds are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and the great tide of inuuis gralion into these slates has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, flee as it is from the long rigourous cold winter, added to aotl uusurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the far mer they hold out sgiecial inducements. Cheap hind, easy term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own bis farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay rent fot tbsu land ue occupies nere.ir me interest on the money be has invested in it.
