Brown, for two years and half superintendent of the St. Louis and Koek Inland division or Itic C, B. A Q , have been justly recognized in his promotion to the superintendency of the Iowa liuts of the "Burlington route." with headquarters at Burlingto Mr. Brown has been on the St. Louis division of this road for seven years, coining from Wilton, Iowa, where he was division train dispatcher on the C , It. I. & P., to act in a similar capacity for the C. B. & Q The officials of the great Burlington were not long in realizing his ability, and he was elevated to a position of greater responsibility at the first op poriunity. Now he is given one of the highest offices in the service of the road he has so successfully and ably repre sented, lie will have under bis super vision the three great Iowa main line di visions, as well as all branches in that state, in all about one thousand miles of roai. Mr. Blown is to succeed Mr. W. F. Merrill, who is to have charge of the Hannibal & St. Jo, Council Bluffs & Kansas City, Kansas City, St. Joseph 4 Council Bluffs and other western lines of the C , B. & Q. system. He will be suc ceeded on the St. Louis division by L. E. Johnson, of Aurora, master mechanic ot the Chicago division, and the vacancy created by Mr. Johnson's promotion will be filled by the advancement of Mr. A. Forsyth, master mechanic of thisdivis ion. Mr Jones, foreman of the round house at Ottumwa is coming to Beards town to take the place of Mr. Forsyth. TRACK TALK The C , B. & Q is out with its annual calendar. It is a neat and attractive souvenir of the great " Burlington Route" The Railroad Retieie says: What gives promise of becoming 8 wholesale decapitation is going on anioni; the pas senger conductors of the C. R. I. fc P. railroad. Within a week passenger con ductors Powles, Mooney and Tew have been ivlieved permanently and Conductor Mce has resigned . Where is Truman ? The wiid winds and a sad-eyed wife are sighing for one Truman Gilbert, who was wont to haunt these scenes on a monthly pilgrimage for the wholesale tobacco house of J. K. Sweeney & C.. of Clinton. Udbert, who succeeded Fr!ak Rhodes as traveling representative of the firm, was at the Rock Island house just before Thanksgiving, and collected about $3U0 of outstanding debts here. This, ttgethcr with other colleclio us, mileage books, etc., made about $4ii0 of the firm's money in his possession. Whether the gay and festive drummer ye arned for the ijuiet and tranquility of Canada with this small amount of boodle is not known, but he nevertheless mysteriously and ef fectually disappeared from the guzo of those who love and want him most. The victimized employer and the anxious but hopeful wife were in the city yesterday on the trail ot the erring Truman, aud al though mine host Munger scoured the neighboring bailiwicks in a symp tlhetic mood, no clew w.vs gained of he who is so sadly missed. Jowepli Murphy Tonight. Joseph Murphy, the celebrated actor, is to appear at the Burlis opera house at Oavenorl tonight, in his famous origi nal play, "Kerry Gow." This extraordi nary attraction will be attended by many from this side of the river, the ice bridge being solid, end affording all desirous of attending.a pleasant little walk over and back in the moonlight. See what the Cincinnati Xtin.Iotirn.i'. says of the play to be produced tonight: Probably there is no belter Irish comedy on the American stage with the ossible exception of some of Bouric.iullH th'tn Fred Mars den's 'Kerry Gow," and prob ably no belter Irish comedian thn Mr Joseph Murphy, with the single exception of Mr Boiieicault himself. Big hearted, frank, blundering Dan O'llara how every true lover's heart goes out to him in his courtship .of Nora, and his desperation in the ordeal of expressing his wishes to herfathei! The making of the horse shoe in the third act und the home-coming of the carrier pigeons in the fourth act are beautifully natural aud charmim; scenes. Mr. Murptiv was met by a good sized audience at Halm's last cvenirig.ai ! of course received his customary meed of applause. His singing as u-uil elicited warm approval and recalls. Library Knanf.

The entertainment given by the ladies of the Eiist Methodist Episcopal church last evening was very largely attend ed, and a decided success in every partic ular. Tne supper tables were well patron ized during the early part of the evening, nd later on the ice cream an 1 cake stands did the business in the eatable line. The fancy tables, under the general supervision of Mrs. Magill, were well supplied with beautiful aud neatly wrought articles, which met a rtady sale, while the "doll carnival" was a delight ful feature of the entertainment. This department was ill charge of Mrs. Albert J. Taylor and Misses Minnie Magill and Clira Walker. There was a group ot the inanimate and diminutive misses nestled in the snowy folds of a slanting couch, reachiug from the ceiling lo the Uoor. There was an admiring purchaser for every doll, and it was not long before their ranks was sadly depleted. The exercises of the evening opeued with a duet by Misses Jackson and Stod dard. Mr. Rcid, principal of school No. I, then gave a sketch of "Mother Goose,'' and little Myrtle Buck and Fred Pollard created considerable amusement by giv. leg a recitation and song, representing oid folks. Miss Jfaskery favored the audience with some fine instrumental music, and then "Mother Goose" aud her pageant made their apiearance, the chtractcrs and impersonators being as follows: Mother Gjose, Gcrlic Wilcox; King Cole. John Noflsker; Page, Roland Sturgeon; Fiddlers, George Luckev, Harry Cool and Willie Sweeney; To Market, Willie Colburn; Duffy Down Dilly. Hattie Camper; Little Boy l!!ue, Eddie Riniser; Mistress Mary, Minnie Peterson; Market Woman, Annie Boehl; Hot Cross Bans, Herbert Clem ent; Jack and Jill, Willie Thompson and Clara Bowen; Upon My Honor, Ma'ide Campbell; Little Polly Flinders. Eila Spraguc; Little Miss Muffelt. Mamie Scbindler; Little Bo Peep, Julia Spencer; Simple Simon, Clinton Cash. All the little oues acquitted themselves creditably and great praise is due Mrs. J. F. Robin son and Miss Minuic Mail', who supr- ntended the affair. The soap bubble contest was in charge of Mrs. Ueid.and the judges were Messrs. lilanchard, Olsen aud Wells. Th? prize was awarded George Spencer. Mr. E. D. Sweenev. in behalf of the ladies of the church, presented Mrs. Luekey, wife of the pastor, and Mrs. Cool, wife of the presiding elder, with two nice quilts, which the ladies accepted with thanks. The proceeds ot the entertainment amounted to about $150, and the ladies are very well pleased over the result. A Good Investment. Anyone who has ever dealt in lands, knows that no investment of money will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefully made. To the absolute safety or 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 esH'cially lands are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The gootl season and the great tide of immiK gration into these slates has made invest ment there doubiy safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, fiee as it is from the long rigourous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the far mer they hold out special iuducemeuls. C heap land, eav term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than ia required lo pay rent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money he has invested in it. If you are looking for a sale place to invest money, where it will pay you a large and sure profit, or if you are a farm er auu want alarm of your own, call on rue and see what I have to offer. I will make the visit profitable to you. Office over American Express office, Hock Is land. Ill SaVILLK Jott.VSTON. erre--t-cstt WnrthinjEton. A Washington correspondent remarks upon the opening of congress: In the front row of the main yaliery, near the clock, was Mr. W. H. Gest. Ncce's successor. If the expression on Mr. Gist's face was any indication of his true feelinz, no man on the door or in the gHlicrv felt betler than he. He was evi dently at .jieace with ail the world, par ticuiarly W. H. Gest, aud, closing his eyes, lasped into a reterie, probably thinking of Put O'Mara. Mr. Sturgeon and other like republicans who boosted him into office. Mr. Jfeece has the best electioneering outfit in all the country. It consists of an old buggy, a set of dilap Mated harness, and a sway-backed, spavinced horse. The rig twit: carried him to victory. He relied upon the rail roads this time and got left. The buggy and harness are stored away. The horse has the most cemfortable stall in the Neece barn, and in 1888 the old lean; will probably take the road again. "Nick" Worthiuston looked just a trifle glum, and taking his old seat shot his right hand in his panulonni pocket, leaned back his head, and studied the decora tions of the ceiling. Poller Point. Last night the police arrested Mis. Green, Nellie Barenes, May Hilchcock and Billy Baabe, on the charge of vagran cy. Mrs. Green Is a druuken and disrep utable character of the worst sort, and May Hitchcock is a female whom the county is supporting and she is at present under the treatment of the county physi cian, but notwithstanding these facts, she is out on the streets and in the saloons al most every night. Billy Baabe is an ex convict, having served a term in the Rock Island county jail for an assault with in tent to comm:t rape, and he is now just out of the Clinton county jail. A bad lot, indeed.

FAVORABLE TO HEXXEPIX. Report of the Board or Enatueera The Koek Inland Montr the Beat. The Hennepin canal bill is already at tracting the attention of congress, and from present indications the opposing statesmen will have to make more than an ordinary endeavor to defeat it this lime. A Washington special to the Chi cago Timet of this morning, says: The report of the Comatock board of engiueers on the Hennepin canal is in the main acceptable to the friends of the pro ject, but there are some parts of it that do not suit them. The report presents in a very strong light the commercial importance of the canal, and shows that there are no serious difficulties in the way of its construction. The board makes no estimate of its cost. Its cordial endorse ment of the canal on commercial and military grounds will prove a material help to the friends of the canal. The board, however, leans to the Marias d Osier route. This is the shortest and cheapest, but much of it lies through such low flooded lands that when Maj. Benvuard made his survey of it three years ago iu the dtyest month of the year the survevors were unable to pass over a good part of the line. Besides, there are no commercial lines at tuts end of the route to make use of the canal, and the mouth of the canal would be in the mid dle of along reach of rapids. Boats might easily go dow n these rapids to enter the canal at Rock Island, but they would hardly care to go to the rapids to enter the canal at Marais d Osier. Iu his re port Maj. Benyuard, without strongly deciding in favor of any of the routes, plainly gave the Rock island route the preference for commercial reasons. The llanbury report, made a year ago, pre ferred the Marais d'Osier roule on ac count of lesser cost, but the commercial reasons for haviug the canal end at Rock Island were so obvious that Gen. Newtou, then chief of engiueers. pre fixed to the 11 anbury report a strong argument for the Rock Island route, and Gen. Bennett, who was then acting-secretary ot war, transmitted the reports w ith a very emphatic indorsement of the Rock Island route. There is good reason to expect that Gen. Duane, the present chief of engineers, and Secretary Endi cott will both cast their influence in favor of the Rock Island route. Gen. Bennett, as chief of ordnance, and therefore deep ly interested in everything that will con tribute to the efficiency of the Rock Isl and arsenal, is very anxious to have the canal end in the vicinity of the arsenal. The board has found out that the im provement in the Illinois at Henry made ty the state but with the aid of a land craM was not covered by the stated cession. It is believed that this over sight can be remedied by the action of the legislature. The board is also in favor of utilizing the Illinois river to Joliet and to Hennepin as a part of the waterway from the Mississippi to Lake Michigan. The report of the board of engineers will probably be transmitted to congress in a few days. The enterprise has a much better standing before con gress for this reason than it ever had be fore. JhllKY AND HIE CANAL. The Chicago Tribune says: Mr. Murphy, who is in Washington, was yesterday asked if the Hennepin canal people had given up their efforts. "Give up Hennepin?" 1ic replied. "We give up nothing. Why a report has been made by the engineers in accordance with the direction, of the river and har bor bill, last session and the report will soon be before congress, if the govern ment printer ever gets a chance to print it. The secretary of war has promised to give Ihe committee a hearing on Tues day next, and there is life in Ihe Hen nepin yet." John C. Dorr, of the citi zens' committee. says: -'We are awaiting the report of the board of army engineers who were instructed to inves tigate the question, and who will report not only the cost of the cpnal, but upon its commercial necessity, and I am confi dent thai these officers will report that the canal will be of great advantage.
