THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1S6.
STEVE HULL. The Dandy "Cop" of the Night Force on a Tare. He Trim t Break a a llt Forty at TaraerHall aaa ia the Warat r It A Little Iaalae Kiatary f Pallea Affairs. Another disgraceful affair, one bows ever that is simply on a par with the manage jient of polios matters under Mur dick's hoodlum administration, occurred Saturday night,and while it will probably not result in even censure to tbe offend ing officer from the executive of the city, tbe prospects are that it will be brought before tbe council at its next meeting in such hape as to lead to Deputy Marshal Hull's decapitation. Several of tbe city alderman hare on this occasion seen for themselves and realized by this experi ence what tbe Argus has long stated to be the condition of the police affairs of the city. The factory boys at tbe Rock Island Glass works had a ball at Turner hall Saturday night. As far as can be learned it bid fair to be an orderly party, not in the least requiring tbe services of an officer. But Hull was there, and he was beastly drunk, an if there was a dis. turbance it was created by bis irresponsi ble conduct. In the early part of tbe evening he became so boisterous in bis conduct that Alderman Howard. chairman of the potke committee, finally took him from I be ball and endeavored to get him into the station, advisin; him to lie down and rest,- but Hull was not to be per suaded, and Mr. Howard then appealed to tbe marshal, telling biro that Hull was intoxicated and should e attended to. The marshal expressed his knowledge of his assistant's condition but did net seem disposed to act in the matter. Later Hull entered the hall again and with seemingly no provocation, assaulted a man named Fred Holdorf with his club, and took him to the station. Alderman Howard followed to the station, and asked Eckart if the man arrested was to be locked up. and remarked that Hull was tbe more intoxicated of tbe two. Tbe head of the force replied that he would turn tbe prisoner out as soon as Hull went away. Hull afterward ordered that the ball should cetse, on the ground that it was a disorderly affiir, and he commtnded that it break up immediately. Alderman Howard was appealed to, aod as be saw that everything was progre-ising quietly he told those in charge to proceed and pay no attention to Hull's orders. At 1 o'clock in the morning Hull caused anoth er disturbance by attempting to make an arrest without cause, and failing to cap ture the fellow, pulled out his revo'.ver and fired at him, the pistol shot arousing the neighborhood. It is asserted that a number of those participating in the affair, then became tired of the officer's conduct, and seizing him deprived bimof his star and revolver and cut several of the brass buttons from his coat and vest and carried him into the station. This ended tbe fracas. and those who stripped the drunken officer of his authority gave the "city a rebuke t hat all citizens will commend especially the tax payers. Aid. Winter, who lives near the scene of Saturday night's disturbance, and was called out by the deputy marshal's shoot ing, says as far as be can learn it was unprovoked and uncalled for, and that an officer has no right to use his fire arms unless he is handling a desperate charac ter, or a criminal who is fleeing from justice. Tbe deputy marshal could cer tainly have had no use for his revolver with tbe orderly crowd of that night. Mr. Winter thinks the matter should certaiuly be brought before tbe council. He looks upou tbe action of the officer as a disgrace. Aid. Schafer, ho was present at tbe hall during a part of ttie evening, and realized the deputy marshal's condition, is indignant and says tbe matter should be investi gated . It would of course be useless to bring tbe affair to the attention of Mayor Mur dock. He lias had reason to dismiss Deputy Marshal null on many occasions before. If he bad been at ail cons.?ious of his duty he would have discharged the deputy marshal when he assaulted a privaic citizen upon the streets last sum mer, and again when he refused to do his duty, and prevented one of his sub ordinates from doing so at Harper's the atre week before last, in both of which cases the mayor had an acquaintance with the facts, or at least should of bad. The first time an officer apriears under the influence of liquor his suspension is waranted; even the marshal realizes this, for here is what be says in his "police rules." a copy of which every officer on tbe force is provided with: Officers ere forbidden to go into saloons for the purpose of drinking or playing earws of any kind, whether on or off duty; nor will any officer be allowed to leave the city without a written permit from tbe city marshal. At the cud of his set of rules, of which the above is one, Eckbart says: Any officer reported as violating any of the above rules will be suspended until his case, can be investigated. The rules went into effect August 11 last, are signed by the marshal and writ ten with n type writer. But it seems that Hull had violated some part of tbem be fore, as the following, which is a verbatim copy of na order from the marshal, will show: Rock Inland, Nov. 19, 1886. S. 0. Hull Uepuj Marshal I am very sorrow but it becomes my Duty to Suspcnl as Deputy Marshal until! further orders L. V. Eckhast, City Marshal. The foregoing is printed from an order fro m tbe marshal which, after being served on the deputy marshal and passing through his hands, (VII into the possession of an A nous reporter. The marshal's order is followed as far as possible in the above, us to orthography and general construction. How tho deputy got back into tbe good graces of his superior is not known, but bit. case "must certainly have been investigated." Tbe council should take it upon itself to discbarge Hull without consulting the mayor. THE WEATHER. A Kafcjeet la Wfelea Everybody Ik latere tea. Besides ita many natural and commer cial advantages, Rock Island may be said to have "a corner" on tbe weather, for in onr midst dwells tbe seer and prognasticator Mansill. From a little borne notoriety, Hansill'a reputation as a weather prophet has grown world wide, and now be is posing as tbe greatest of tbe great, at least the Chicago Inter Octn thinks he is the most reliable of any in tbe list. It says: The weather for tbe coming year is a subject of universal interest. In Chicago jt can not be said that any professional or mercantile or social interest is free from tbe influence of its importance. While this is tbe fact with regard to the city and its concerns, it is equally forcible as effecting the lake lines of trade in the east and the landed constituencies in tbe west; in other words, agricultural com munities and merchant marine are both deeply concerned with the seasons of next year. Tbe forecasting of the weather is a difficult task, and tbe man who under takes it must be a brave man indeed if be would continue to apply nimself thereto. The average professional weather prophet has run bis course and bad his day . Wiggins, Tice, and all the other storm-kings where are they now? "Gone glimmering through tbe dream of things that were "A schoolboy's tale,, the wonder of an hour!" Some who have not become s notori ous have, however, remained; Foster, of Iowa, bas made several successful bits, so to speak. It may be said tbat Mansill, tbe Kock Island, III., man, has worn about tbe best thus far of any of tbem. He has been quietly engaged studying the weather for years. It is no part of bis custom to startle tbe world with re markable predictions of great events. tie realizes that the people, as a rule, are deeply interested in the average ol the weather. For ten years he has issued his unpretending almanac, and for ten years he has come very near gettiDg down to tbe facte in regard to tbe weath er. He leaves tbe pyrotechnics of the planets to others, and applies himself to common folk's every-day weather. His almanac for the year 1887 is just out, and is a quite interesting document. Professor Mansill gives a table which may be useful for reference. It is what he calls tbe dates of tbe worst planetary s'.orm and earth disturbances. These are the dates: Month. Date. January 8 to 11, 16-17. & to 2; rebruary TtoS.i lv5 March -.. 8 to 10, 21 to24 April 7 and 8. SO to 34 -Mav. 5 to 7.21 to 2 Juoe stoB, 11 to 27 July 3-4. 11-12.20 to 23 Autfurt 3-4. It to U September 17 to 25. 2t-37 October 2-3, 7 to 9, 12 to Tiovemtier 1 to II. 13 to ai, 25-sfc oecemoer. 3 17, 11-12, 23 to 25, 3u u It is predicted tbat tbe year 1887 will be a better crop year than for several years past. It is .expected to possess a long, pleasant, crop producing season. suitable for agricultural products. There win oe many severe and tedious storms. or more than what occurred during the summer season over tbe drought district of tbe northwestern states during the past year, it is not expected tbat this winter will be very severe, although there may possibly be some cold terms. Tbe weather lor January is announced as probably moderate. It is likely February will be the coldest, stormiest month of the winter. March will be moderate. with some severe storms, followed by cobi spells for a few days at a time. Apnl will be a moderate and rather mild or fair month. May will be likewise, at least two-ibirds of it, aad after that six weeks of cool and stosra weather may be expected, thus bringing the weather to July, wnicn will be hot. The warmth will continue till it g'trleg. into a pleasant autumn, extending fm into November. Then come stormy times, wjib cold weather in Oecember. The fanaer is advised bv Prof. Mansill to plant he corn by May 20. in order to carry it lboag h the last cooler days of May and juoat'ter which tbe weather will be favorable t U. Small grain is to he sown equally enrly. and grain and corn will do well in the corn belt. The cold spell in May aad June will greatly aid wheat to fill out aad ma ture in a suitable season, and give a fair harvest and good crops. The wheat crop of Northern Europe is expected to do better next year than for army years pist. The ladiaa M areheaae. The Chicago Timet of yesterday, con tained the following special from Wash ington: Hon. W. H. Gest, of Illinois, is very desirous of securing the location of the Indian supply warehouse at Rack Island. He bas during the week held several con sultations with Commissioner Atkins about the matter, and at great length pictured the advantages of tbe town arising from its railway and river facul ties. Mr. Gest is just a trifle discour aged respecting tbe outlook. He Bays the government does not propose to pur chase suitable grounds and erect perma nent buildings. Commissioner Atkins thinks the secretary of tbe interior will order tbe leasing of a store 30Uxl5(l feet. Tbe lease will be for one year, with the privilege of renewal. Mr. Gest says Rock Island does not afford a building which meets the requirments of the de Dartmenl. nor could be conscientiously advise the erection of such a one. partic ularly since it is understood that only on e year's occupancy would be guaranteed by the government. He believes the depot will be located at Chicago, St. Louis, or Omaha, with the chances in favor of Chicago. It is not likely, therefore' that Rock Island will get tbe warehouse. The uncertainty of the length of time for which the warehouse would be located at one point does not admit of any particu lar effort or extra inducements to secure it, and as Rock Island bas not a building of tbe required capacity, there is no use to think further of it. The Illlal Clnb. The club rooms of the Illini Club on Seventeenth street and First avenue, were opened this afternoon for tbe first time. The rooms have been magnificently papered and furnished. The floor of the reading, or reception room is covered by a rich Brussells carpet, the woodwork is finished in cherry, while the billiard room has -a matting covering and tho appointments throughout tbe suite are elegant and tbe very best. A Bay. Alderman B. Winter wears an unusu ally pleasant smile this morniog, and investigation as to the cause reveals the fact that there is a fine boy at the alder derman'g house on Third avenue, west of Turner hall, who arrived early Sunday morning, making five in Mr. and Mrs. Winter's bright little family.

That the toboggan is to be among tbe out of door sports of Rock Island society the coming winter, seasoa. is now an assured fact. For some time tbe organ ization of a toboggan club in tbe city has been in progress, the only draw-back being as to where would be a suitable place for the slide; and 'who might be looked to, to prepare it for the purposes desired. This difficulty has been over come by Mr. J. P. Newburg, who has com menced the construction of a slide on tbe suitable slope jult eastofBlack Hawk's watch tower. The silo selected is admi rably adopted for the purposes, no trestle work being required, and the platform on which the toboggan is to slide will be flooded each night in order tbat a slippery surface may be had the next morning. When the weather is suitable for the toboggan sliding the Rock Island & Milan street cars will make regular trips to the summit of the tower carrying those desir ous of engaging in the sport within a very short distance of the starting place.

DETERMINED TO DIE. aiwatav aUrarel tavr areas a taelf IaaieteH fate. Gustav Birgel, a your.g man of good family in Germany, who was sent from here to his native land a little over a year ago, because of a weak mind, and who has since returned lo this country, attempted to end bis existence in a horri ble manner Saturday evening. Switch engine No. 6 of the R I. & P. was push ing a train of loaded cars down to tbe depot; Birgel approached the track near the foot of Eighteenth street aud throw ing down a bundle which be bad in bis arms, deliberately stretched himself across the rails. Fred Berger, of the Merchant's Electric Light company, ob served the man a strange actions and rushing out rescued him from his would be self-inflicted fate, just in time, tbe end of the car striking him as he was taken from the track. Birgel then walked up toward the bridge. His peculiar actions attracted the attention of a guard, who arrested him and gave him over to the police. He ap peared determined to die.and bad not the guard have taken him in charge, would probably have jumped into the river. He is tbe only child of a good family, and a life of dissipation has probably brought him to bis present condition. The Rapids Pilot Inbrachlla. Among the interesting cases to be tried at the January term of the federal court in Keokuk are those of Dorrence and McCaffrey, pilots of LeClaire, who are accused of violating the government rules of navigation in piloting without a licenvo. One of these is that requiring steamboats approaching each other from opposite directions to blow a blast at a distance of no less than eight hundred yards. A great many whistles are not distinctly heard that distance, and the rule is seldom observed, boats generally signaling each other when they are not further apart than three hundred yards. If the wind is blowing, confusion is al ways sure to result, and confusion of whistles and signals accounts for a large majority of collisions. It is understood tbat an effort will be made to bring this matter before congress at the present session and have tbe law bo amended as to have fit changes in sleamboatin as ap plied to raft towing. At present tbe law it a dead letter and is not enforced. Far the Plaintiff.

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 of a government bond, is added a profit far in execs of rate of interest which can he obtained on any safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands arc raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and the great tide of itmni. gration into these grates 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 unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, bas made possible the wonderful development of thew 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 be occupies here, or the interest on the 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 I have to offer.
