THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 31, 16.
J n it TURNING THE LEAF. Make Some Good Resolve Night To- The Death or the Old u Birth the lew Year at 1 O'clock To-nicht-Evtats of lHt. of The new year will be wedded to the republic at 13 o'clock tonight, and from New ToAto Sao Francisco the new couple will be greeted with an ovation uneqaaled in extent. The ceremony will occupy a brief space of time, but will be witnessed by a countless multitude of Decide. Ia. churches and in drinking places, in luxurious parlors and in almost roofless cottages, by people high and low, rich and poor, pure and vicious, happy and desponding, idler and toiler, will alike - witness the glorious nuptials. Whether for good or for evil none may euessf'only hope. Hope for a wider good to all mankind, for a wider spread of charily and a decay of malice; hope for a forgetfulness of the dark and un pleasant features of the past, aud hope for happiness and prosperity for all in the future. No matter what may have been the misfortunes which old 1386 may have brought, no matter what train of unfortunate events that one short year may have brought, a tear of regret will bo dropped as his tottering form, against ; which all doors are turned, seeks the only road open to him-to the cemetery. Yet even as the midnight bells are tolling for the dead, the merry chimes will ring nut, for the newly born will be welcomed by guotl resolutions for the future, as a new and spotless leaf is turned ia the astronomic calendar. LOCAL EV ENTS OF TUE YEAH. Locally speaking, 1886 has been quite a memorable year, the principal events being the death t P. L. Ctble, at Sun ' Antonio.- Tux., May 21; the death of John Deere, May 19; the death of D. 0. Dimick, of Holine, May 23; the death of Hiram Cable, of Davenport, November 20; the death of Hans Timm erman, an inmate of the county poor farm, Jan. 4; the subsequent trial of the aged Sam uel Robertson, father of the steward, for the murder, and his acquittal; the murder of Express Messenger Nichols, on the morning of Saturday, March 13, between this city and Chicago, and the escape of the fiends with $20,000; the killing of Qrant BufTum by his chum, Hurry Brookman at Andalusia, April 11; the trial of Brookman later for the murder, and his acquittal; the departure of the Rod man Rifles for Etst St. Louis, April 22, and the company's service there during the great strike in the month of April; the mysterious death of Mrs. Delia Boettger, who was thrown into the Mis sissippi river from the government bridge July 81, and the holding of her husband, Joseph Boe ttger, who is still awaiting trial, for the crime; the meeting of the Society of the Army of the Ten nessee in the early part of September, and the visit to Ruck Island duiing that week of Gen. Sherman, Gen. Logan, Gen. Belknap, Judge Gresham, and other dis tinguished personages; the fall election, resulting in Ihi triumph of the democ racy in the securing of T. S. Silvis for sheriff and John Schafer. Jr., for treas urer; the horrible bloody murder of James Jackson by Geo. Erbst, on Market square in front of Given & Bell's Siloou on Christmas night, and of the c tpture and incarceration of Erbst. The impor tant events which have occupied the at tention of the public during a large por tion of the time; the attempt of the city to properly regulate sanitary matters, the rebelling of the butchers to having their business rightly guarded, the test ing of the matter in the courts, and the first steps in the proceedings being Judge Glenn's refusal to dissolve the Huesiog injunction on the city abattoir; the building of the Union street railway between Rock Island and Moline after a great deal of opposition, and the reduc ing of the fare on the old line from ten eents to a nickel. A GLANCE AT TUE FLTL ItE. Of the future none can tell; we can only take indications for what they are worth, ar d in Rock Island we believe they are worth a good deal, and that before 1887 passes in its checks in favor of 1888, we will have the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific car shops, a union depot, a driv ing park; in fact, a genuine boom, such as the locality has been waiting f"r for -some time, and VitiKn!'Bliy cvmejfA il only ' tair start.

The sale of seats for the select New Year's entertainment to be given by Manager Knell at Harper's thealre.tomor row evening, will open tomorrow morn ing at 9 o'clock. The principal attraction will be M ile Camilli Rcnnie, a dramatic reader of note, Her impersonations are said to be particularly successful. She young, pretty and talented. Her selections will be of a varied nature. THE OPERA SEASON. Probably nothing of recent years in the amusement line announced at Rock Island, bas attracted more general inter est than the announcement of the an pearancc of the Carleton Opora company, which will sing Offenbach's most charm ing opera, "The Drum Major's Daugh ter," at Harper's theatre, Thursday even ing next. The opera has been received with the greatest favor in London, Boston and New York. It is considered by long odds the strongest opera in the Carleton repertoire. All the old favorites are with the company. The sale of seats wilt open Monday morning at C. C. Knell's promptly at 9 o'clock. First come, first served. "OI T OF BONDAOE." Mr. Ciark Hubbard, the advance agent for the Hyer Sisters.in their very success ful drama "Out ol Bondage," is in the city today. The company in support is certainly an excellent one. Who is there that bas not heard of Sam Lucas and Wallace King? The Hyer Sisters them selves have heretofore been sufficient to attract large audiences, but with the addition of tbe above artists and a really excellent company, the attraction is doubly interesting. They appear at Harper's theatre next Friday evening. Obituary. PETER EOAN. Peter Egan died at his home, 2524 Vine street, at 2;30 yesterday afternoon. De ceased was born in Ireland sixty-rive years ago, and was married in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850 to Miss Mary McDer mott, who survives her husband, with six children: P. II, Eagan.who is an engineer on the C, R. I. & P. road, and four daughters and a younger son at borne. Mr. Egaa had been a resident of Rock Island a quarter of a century and an employe of the C , R. I. & P. road for twenty years. Of late he had been flagman at the railroad crossing near the foot bridge, ne died of canter, with which he had been a sufferer for some time. He was industrious and honest. The funeral will be held from St. Joseph's church at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning HORTOS. At the residence of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Horton, 1002 Fourth avenue at 2 o'clock this morning, Fred Horton aged eighteen years, died of pneumonia after a painful illness. Tie young man was an employe of tn Rock Island Lum ber and Me.uutacturing company, diligent inuis habits and a favorite with his friends. A taeer Verdict. The verdict of the coroner's jury, (M.E. Sweeney foreman), in the matter of the murder of James Jackson by Geo. Erbst last Sunday morning, has been the subject of much comment, owing to the jury's assuming to say that there was provocation fur the deed after holds ing Erbst for murder. The coroners jury's duty ends when it ascertains the cause of the death of the person upon whose body the inquest is held. The question as to what may have been tbe cause or motive of the crime Bhould be left for the grand jury and circuit court to decide, aud had the jury been given sound legal advice the last clause of the verdict would have been omitted. Cor oner Hawes did right in expressing his disapproval of the verdict. A Mnbjeet of Charity. A subject of deeper sympathy and of charity could not be well imagined than is the widow of James Jackson, the victim of last Saturday night's bloody tragedy. Since the murder of her hus band, Mrs. Jackson has given birth to her first child, and with the little one to support, she is left penniless, with scarce ly the means to buy food; without friends, save those who have kindly volunteered their services, she is thrown upon the world. The attention of the public is called to this matter with a hope that a subscription may be started for the benefit of the unfortunate woman who, in tbe hour of her terrible affliction, ia left destitute and alone, with an infant to care for.

A Ualvanie Batter In Which a Local Physician Tfcft.ee Pride. Dr. G. G. Craig, city health commis sioner, who has been one of the most successful physicians and surgeons in Western Illinois, has at his bouse, at the head of Eighteenth street, a con trivance with which he proposes to ac complish a creat deal in electrical science, which he otherwise could not. Dr. Craig has always had a considerable con fidence in electricity if properly applied in alleviating pain and in affecting a cure in most chronic and many acute diseases. He has given much attention to experimenting in this direction, and after a thorough study of the subject, and careful inquiry as to the best appli ances in use, has secured through the agency of Mr. T. II. Thomas, of Mr. Otto Fleming, of Philadelphia, a galvan ic battery. The institution was recom mended by Dr. Bartholow, of Philadel phia, under whose tutorship Dr. Craig studied medicine, and who is one of the leading authorities on medical electricity in the United States. It took the first prize at the centennial exhibition of 1876, end has been adopted by tbe gov ernment for use in the medical and sur gical departments of the main hospital service. The battery consists of sixty Leelanehe Gonda cells, connected with the cabinet by insulated wires. By the variois appli ances within the cabinet all grades of current may be administered, from the mild anil soothing to the most exciting. The galvanometer is so constructed that the strength of the current is indicated in mille amperes, upon a dial, so that the dose of electricity is measured as accu rately as a drnggiat weighs his medicine. This feature in particular is a recent im provement, though the entire contrivance is modern in all respects. A reporter for the Argcb was shown the effects of the the electrical currents as produced by this battery last evening, the doctor showing how a soothing current could be given, how the current could be reversed in an instant through the system, and also gave a vivid idea of the extent of tbe shocks Uie instrument is capable of ad ministering in certain cases. Dr. Craig has also ordered from the same house a soapstone bath tub, which may be readily kept clean, and by means of which he may give electric baths. Dr. Craig's enterprise is certainly commendas able. A Hociatl-;-ent. The party given by Miss Carrie Jack son last evening was a very pleasant one. It is always a pleasure for young people to join in an evening entertainment and particularly so when delightful strains of music compel a total forgetfulness of the ordinary business of the day. Pleasure can not then fail to be tbe lesult. Dane ing was the main feature of the evening for those who danced, though the others enjoyed themselves equally as well in other ways. About forty couples were present and an animated happy company they were. Miss Glenn, daughter of Judge Glenn of Monmouth, was present as a guest of Miss Jackson, and rendered two vocal solos wiih very happy effect. About half after 1 the company separated, tak ing with them only pleasant remember anee8 of the evening. The BrnMh Light Company.
