THE KOCK ISLAND AKGUS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1886.
Aimee Tonight. Marie Aimee, who is as sprightly now as she was when she first appeared on the stage, will produce her universally successful comedy, "Mam'zelle," at Har per's theatre tonight. This vivacious little actress will sing new songs, amongst which there is one, which many critics say rivals her famous "I'retly as a Pic ture." The supporting company prom ises to be good, and a night of excellent comedy is promised. Aimee is an actress of high merit and skill, and her perfor mances are of that rare stamp which will give delight no matter how frequently they may be seen. "Mam'zelle" is in itself a thoroughly enjoyable comedy, full of the most amusing complications dramatic surprises, and keeps the aud ience in continuous hilarity during the two hours and a half it holds the stage. A Snrkrr. A little confidence game was enacted on Conductor Whitfield's train on the C, B. & N., at Savanna yesterday morning. A wild, untamed cowboy from Dakota was the victim, and ho was "worked" by an old and benevolent lookingcntleman, whose appearance belied his true nature. First, the old gentleman wanted a check of $70e cashed, but the cowboy hadn't ridden a broncho long enough to earn that amount The o g. went on to state that he had a freight bill of $40 to p ly and as lis was going to the Siiine place the c. b. was destined for Quincy if he could borrow that sum be would have the check cashed at one of the stations along ihe road anil relurn the money. At this seemingly fair proposition the c. h. went down in his jeans and handed out four trisp SHI hills. Just before the train started for Kock l:-land, the o. g. quietly slipped off the cars. After the train bad got under full headway the c. b. began to look for his "partner," but in vain. He Bsked Conductor Whitfield if such a per son was on the train, and being answered in the negative, a gory look came in his eyes, and he dropped off at the first sta tion and started on the back track.

A mysterious telepuone message to the criminal court building Friday afternoon requested S'ate's Attorney Grinnell to wmt at his office until a well-known pri vate citizen arrived at his, the state's at torneys office. The citizen aud Mr. Iluu hins, an attache of the Chicago ami Rock Island railroad company, within a tew minutes of the sending of that mes sage, gppcartd at the office of Sheriff Hanchett anil mysteriously requested a permit from the sheriff to interview the population of the county jail individually and collectively. A few minutes before I! o'clock, when the mantle of night bad closed the eyes, so to speak, of the crim inal court reporter, or was supposed to have done so, the private citizen and Hutchins, in company with a detective or two and Mr. Daniel Donohue, assistant state's attorney, entered the portals of the county jail, and handing the mandate of Sheriff Hanchett, or rather that of his deputy, the sheriff elect, to the guardian angel at the door, a-ked to see Mr. IIel den, a young man who is now serving a term of imprisonment for an offense of very modest dimensions, such as is usual ly punished by a short term of imprison ment in this comparative Hades, but who, having six months yet to serve, is naturally anxious to shorten the terui. Reinforced by this young man, ihe dele gation entered the jail and then spent the best part of an hour in pumping that young man . The story that he told was to the effect that he was present when the pian for what is known as the Kock Isl and Railroad robliery was planned by the men who committed it. The men, he said, who were present on lhat occasion were Dickens, Hopkins, and Sanders, gentle men whose ways have long been under the eyes of the law. and the driver of one of the express wagons of the Chicago and Kock Island railioad company, whose name he did not know, but whom he said he could easily recognize if an opportuni ty was given him to do so. The people's legal guardians, the private citizen, and the aforesaid detectives professed not to believe a word of what young Helden told them, but it is supposed that the ex pression of the refusal to believe was simply meant as a blind to lull the suspic ions and stay the legs ot the suspected individuals, suouid tuey by untimely chance hear that the law wants them. It appears that Ilelden's connection with the robbery was made known by his send ing to Detective McSion to see him at the jail aeveral weeks ago. Recent develop Mfii have tended to prove what Helden mw. CtUrrh is a constitutional disease Mix A firaprilla. Is a constitutional remedy. It cures catarrh, Uive it a trial. AXEXT THE ABATTOIR. Opinion of the Pnblie and of the Bar, on Jodie Vlenn'g Derioion. In his ruling given in the circuit court yesterday overruling the prayer on the part of the city that the Hutsing inj unction on the city abattoir be dissolved, Judge Glenn seems to base that decision lipou the strength of the following, which is takes from his ruling : Oq the eighteenth day of December, 1865, the city council of the city of Chi cago passed an ordinance which provided that all the slaughtering of animals for city consumption should be done on a particular lot, at the establishment of a particular firm, except that done at tue regular packing houses for packing pup. poses. This ordinance provided for the erection of good, ample and complete buildings and yards, with the necessary conveniences, fixtures and arrangements, including hot and cold water, gas light, etc., for slaughtering and taking care of animals. It also conferred the right of all butchers to take their animals to that place and slaughter them therein. It also provided for furnishiug the several butchers with a division or portion of the building, etc. The ordinance further provided that the firm owning the estab lishment should keep the buildings. yards and premises in good condition, and remove the filth, etc.Tthereforelrom. as they may be required by ordinance. There was an additional provision that the firm should receive as compensation for the use of their establisnment the usual offal of the animals slaughtered therein bv the Beveral butchers and m! more. The establishment was to be kept pen at all times to the inspection of the city health officer or any of bis deputies. This ordinance provided that no other' laughtering establishment or establish ments should be suffered or permitted within the city limits, nor should any slaughtering bv butchers or others be suffered or permitted except as provided in this ordinance, under a penalty ot not less than twenty five dollars or exceeding one hundred dollars for each and every offence. This ordinance was held by the supreme court of the state in the case of the city of Chicago vs Kurnpff, 45 III 91. to be void, because it was unreasonable, oppressive and tended to create a moo oply. The decision of Judge Glenn is a dis. appoiutment to the majority of the people of Rock Island, and is not at all popular with the general public. But it is emin ent authority on the legal situation of the matter, nevertheless. Willi a view, how ever, of gaining the opinions of members of the bar on the subject a number of attorneys were interviewed this morning, with the following result: E. E. rarmenter; "I have not looked up the law, but I think the tendency of the court is to hold that cities have author ity to regulate 6uch institutions. I hardly think the Chicago case on which Judge Glenn bases his decision, hits this case, as i'. is a private enterprise while this public. The progressive idea of the court is to give cities the authority to regulate sauitary affairs. I thiuk the upreme court would reverse Judge Gleuu's decision. Adair Pleasants: "No lawyer can give an opiuion of any value until he has weighed the arguments of lawyers on both sides, as Judge Glenn has. The main question in the case is one about which the best legal minds might honest ly differ; the question as to the power of the city to do what it has tried to do is a pure question of law, and it is uiv opinion that Judge Glenn, having examined the authorities on both sides, is probably right. There should be no feelings in volved in the matter, as Dr. Craig's mo tives are the best, aud alt good citizens should hold up his hands in his efforts to better the sanitary condition of the city." E. W. Hur.-t: "I donot believe that the opinion of any lawyer who had made but a cursory examination of an important question like this, upun which the best legal minds diHer, should be given much weight as ag-tiost the opinion of thoe who had spent much time and study upon the question, and as Judge Glenn had un- douhiedly carefully examined the ques tion before rendering his decision. I am inclined to think his decision was right and would be sustained. That the ques tion was one upon which the highest authorities differed, however, is shown by Judge Glenn's decision, in which he cites the fact that the supreme court of Wisconsin and the supreme court of the United States have announced a doctrine at variance with his decision. Judge Glenn's decision being based principally upon tlnf decision of our supreme court in the case of the city of Chicago vs Rumpff." Jos. L Haas: "I think the decision of Judge Glenn will be reversed, if it is tak en to the supreme court of the state. He evidently bases the decision arrived al, on the case of the city of Chicago vs Rumpff. which, though similar, is not like the case in Question, as there is no attempt to institute a monopoly here. I believe the supreme court will reverse Judge Glenn's decision, on the ground that the city has a right to adopt sanitary measures of such n nature." Maj. II. C Connelly: "I think that the city should have the right to reg ulate matters of this kind on general principles. It is a delicate matter for me to analyze Judge Glenn's decision, after his thorough study of the case, and pre sumption on my part, to criticise his de cision. I think, however, that the case should not stop here: that it should go up to a higher court." ol. Curtis, Maj. Bcardsley, Messrs. J, T. Kenworthy and Oliver Olsen were ins terrogatcd, but declined to give opinions on the ground that they had not given the case sufficient attention to decidedly express themselves This afternoon the attorneys are wrest ling over an attempt on the part of the city to get the case in shape to take it to the appellate court on its way tbe sui prcme authority of the state. An Accident. Henry Wendelburg, an employe at the upper saw mill, met with an unfortunate accident this forenoon, catching his left hand in Ihe machinery and sustaining such injuries that Dr. Craig was obliged to amputate the second and third fingers, the first and fourth being also badly lacer ated.

Additional Hieh School Teachers Ow ing to Increase In Attendance- Other Matters. A special meeting of the board of edu cation was held last evening. There were present President Stafford and Di rectors Welch, Keimere, Barge nnd Dur ham, and Secretary Kemtrle. The board appointed Miss Nellie Rey nolds, of Aurora, an additional teacher at the high school, the particular branches under her charge to be composition and literature. Her salary is to be f 75 per month. The new teacher comes with the best recommendations, having had eight years' experience in the Aurora high school, and has made the branches she is to teach a constant study. The reason of the addition to the high school corps is the great increase in the high school at tendance, there having been an advance of thirty-three per cent, in attendance for the month of October, in 1886, over the average for the same month for six years. The average for six years was ninety-three, while last month it was 126. showing that the work was too much for the force employed, and the additional teacher was a necessity. This coupled with the fact that the board is anxious to give more particular attention to the English branches, led to the engagement of another instructor in tbe high school. The committee on text books was au- thoiized to refund several volumes of the high school library. The superintendent was instructed to close on Wednesday evening, the 24th, until the following Monday morning, for tbe Thanksgiving vacation. The following bills were allowed: Harlz & Bahnsen. 107 HS; S. E. Pet- tit. 1.5; C. 11. Stoddard. 14; J. G. Hunloon. $1.50; Stewart A Montgomery, 62.45; R. I'rarupton. f9 53; John Volk & Co., 1.10; J. D. Tavlor, f 15.60, Mott & Lidders, SOc; Union Printing Co. $5.25; S S Ktmble. $30 18. T. II. Thomas, f 9 30; J. T. Foftsker, $13.93; Henry Dart's Sons, $5.50. The following resolution was adopt ed: Ktxihml. That the hoard issue bonds to the amount of $1S,5ih.i in sums to suit purchasers, w ith interest not to exceed 5 iHTcint tier annum, aud the bonds to mature in the month of December each year as follows: $3.5iri in iss; $.",imO in 1SS9; So.OOO in 190, and $5,000 in 1S91: and that the matter of disposal of the bonds lie referred to the Finance com mittec with instructions to investigate and report to the board at an early hour. It was decided to allow Janitor Smith if Building No. 1, $20 for services of ad litional help in cleaning his building. Mrs. Culligan, janitor of No. 4, was al lowed $20 for the s.itne reason, and Mrs. McLaughlin was allowed $'t for the same. J. I.. Kriiten Every Member of the bar in Kock Isl and county is pained by the intelligence of the unfortunate accident which hus befallen Monmouth's distinguished at torney, J. L. Dryden, mentioned in last evening's Alters. The Monmouth (V.iz - ettt of last night furnishes the following late and additional information, concern ing the condition of the sufferer and par ticulars of the accident: Tlietc is no great change in the condi tion of Mr. Dryden. The fact that he is not much worse gives hope, but nolbine can relieve the seriousness of his phy- ical state. He lies in a semi-conscious or comatose condition. His breathing is heavy and at times he talks rather de liriously. It is thought that he recog nized the doctor this morning. His pulse at times is about normal. The marKs of ihe injuties he received show plainly. The cut on the forehead is nut large, but the blood has settled lielow the eres. There is a large bruise on Ihe right side near the hip, besides the wounds in the vi cinity of the abdomen. He turns over in the bed more readilv than would be ex pected aud has once or twice tried to get up although he was of course restrained by his attendants. An evidence of the sympathy with the injured man, who was so generally known and respected, is the frequent inquiry about how be is getting along. Throughout the city the people anxiously learn the latest reports and ex press hopes of his improvement. It seems as though tbe sympathetic pulse of tbe public beat with lhat of the sufferer. So far as Mr. Drydcn's delirious talk relates to the accident, it discloses noth ing except the fact that lie was attempt ; to get across the track, chat was the last mental exertion before he was struck by the engine and he is still, so far as bis mental strength is concerned, straining every nerve to escape the dan ger from the incoming engine. It is probable that should he recover to tell the story of the accident, that the last thing be would he able to recount would be the effort he was making to get across the track. The train which struck Mr. Dryden was in charge of Conductor Terry and Engineer Pat Murriu, of locomotive 308. t'onrt t'olliiiKN The grand jury returned into court this morning with the following indictments and were finally discharged by Judge Glenn: Charles A. P.rowning. forgery. John Weslley Kittell, embezzlement one indictment, forgery two indict me n Is. Jas. Allen and Robert Lee, robbery. The prisoners were brought into court, aud pleas of guilty entered in all cases, except, as to to Lee, who plead not guilty. The court appointed Col. Curtis to de fend Browning, aud Mr. Kenworthy to defend Kittell and Allen. The prisoners insisted upon their pleas, and Judge Glenn sentenced Browning to eighteen months in the penitentiary, Kittell to three vears, and Allen to ten years. Browning is the man who attempted to pass a forged order on the Golden Eagle clothing house, Kittell is the man who committed embezzlement and for gery on J. B. Ellis, and Allen the man, who with Lee and others, held up farmer Twelftrce near the C, B. & H . yards the other day. It was shown that Allen and Lee after robbing their victim and beat him until he was unconcious, laid him across the track so that a train being switched down before he recovered consciousness would have caused him a frightful death. These important facts were not covered in the indictment, however. Lee is about as tough a looking custo mer as one generally meets. Ho For California! . W.

To the absolute safety of a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of interest which can be obtained on any safe loan. 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 the great tide of immis gration into these states has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, free as it is from the long rigourous cold winter, added to a soil unsu passed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the far-, mer they hold out special inducements. Cheap land, easy term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay rent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on tbe money he has invested in it. If you are looking for a safe place to invest money, where it will pay you a large and sure profit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to offer. I will make the visit profitable to you. Office over American Express office, Kock Is land. 11 1. Saviixk Johnston. MOLINE. The Friday club arranged a program for the season last evening.
