We have that, anil that a little clique would retain and would mnkc the 'jreat government bridge a toll bridge, which I believe they attempted to do at on- time through a paid attorney befit representatives in contjreps, or would close it entire ly, as a means of free commu nication between these two tbrivinir cities. Why not withhold another license to this ferry company or make th?m pay what sm-li a franchise is worth? addii to the revenue of our city of not less than five pr cent on the gross re ceipts and let Davenport do the same. The ferry company his been capitalized at ftfO.000 on winch the company ex peel to pny a big dividend. We under stand that the c.-h vsluation of their property is only about $10,000 indepen dent of the franchises given by the cities of Davenport and Kck Island. Let some of the old settlers tell what they know of promises made and broken hy this ferry company to the city of Rnck Island; let them tell what the furry com pany agreed to give to the city and to the school fund of tins city for a renewal of their license then; let us consider if five per cent is too much to ask of this company for a renewal of their license. It looks verc much as though the edi tor of the Union went about town very little to eet the view of people on the subject of c'osing the avenues of trade to this ctty. Perhaps it is made very inter esting to htm to only interview residents of his own block. Let us open up to this syndicate of capitalists from Chicago, eyery avenue possible within reason and good judgment, to prosecute their treet car scheme. They came here to boom our cities; don't let us embarrass them. They came here to make money wr inenisclves, and in doing so they pro pose, make money for us. Let us take fcroader views of the situation than we have been doing for the last twenty-five years. Give these gentlemen access to wc bridge for their street cars; encour ' age the building of another fine bridge at . a central point in the city to Davenport, and if necessary to the prosperity of this city, wipe out this ferry company, which would ride over everv fancied obstruction to their nickles, rough shod. SCBSCRIBfiK. O'JIaraantl Md'hee trm at Htllndnlr, HrLLSDAiJc, Sept. 15. A crowd of about 175 gathered in town this afternoon to hear the lion. Pat O'Mara and Rev. McPheetera shoot their guns and wave their bloody rags. The natives had prepared seats and a speak ers' stand in the grove south of town on Oak alley. The Joslyn club was present with its flig on a willow pole. The Messrs. Whitesides sang "The Star Spangled Banner" and a campaign song, after which ex-Shf-riti Payne intro duced Pat O'Mara, who opened by saying that the people could see the difference in the workiog of free trade and protection, as McPbeeters wasraised un der protection and he under free trade.

He said Har rison could not help but vote as he did on the Chinese question in tbe senate. He also said that China could send a hundred million Chinamen here and not miss them, and that at that time we needed the Chinamen for laborers He said that Grover Cleveland was not the friend of the soldier; that he went fishing on decoration day and had vetoed pension bills, but di 1 not say that he had signed more pension hill than all the presidents from Washington down. His speech then lost some of its tlavor, so be dished out a little bloody shirt to season it with. He said that Cleveland aband -oned his profession of law to become a public hangman. He forgot to say that he (Pat) left the democratic party because be could not go to the legislature, and now he wants to pose as state's attorney. He then alluded to the free whisky plank and said it was to be free only on the spirits used for mechanical purposes and the arts. After some other remarks which we have not spare ro write, he set out' some more bloody shirt. He concluded by more abuse of President Cleveland, and sat down almost exhausted after bia great mental and physical labor. The glee club then" sang "The Political Barber Hhop," when the big McPbeeters took the floor and almost broke bis back in trying to look over his stomach at his feet to see if they were in position. He appears to be an escaped clown from a circus, and we were on the point of look ing around for the chow tents. His ad, diess up to the time we left was nothing but jesting and bloody shirt. We left to look after a musket, expecting to be mus tered into the service to whip the rebels Bn. We would like to hear the speakers again, as they make votes Tor Cleveland wherever they go. The crowd was about equally divided between the republicans and democrats, with aev eral prohibitionists. The oldest form the ancient Egyptians at tributed to the soul was that of a shadow a double born with each person, and following him through the various stages of lif, grow ing as he grew and declining as he declined. They applied this theory not only to human beings, bat also to gods and animals, trees and stones. Everybody and everything was held to hare its double, even beds, chairs and knives. The component particles of these doubles were so minute and subtle that or dinary people could not perceive them. Only a special order of priests or seers, gifted or trained for the purpose, could identify the doubles of the gods, and obtain from them a knowledge of past and future events. The doubles of men and inanimate objecta re mained securely hidden from sight m the or dinary course of life. Still, tbey sometimes left the body, endowed with color and voice, and went away to manifest themselves at a distance, after the maimer of modern ghosts. THE "DOUBLES1 AFTER DEATH. After death tb doubles maintained not only the characteristics of the particular man they had been associated with while in the flesh, but were subjtfted to tho common wants and pains of humunity-m-to hunger and thirst, t hat and cold, to fatigue and illness with the aggravation that, whereas the living have ways, and means of self pro tection against the evils which befall them, the dead are utterly destitute. If left to themselves tboy wero doomed to roam about the places they had inhabited, and feed upon the refuso 01 bousos, with a certainty of per ishing after prolonging their miserable ex istence for a short time. If properly at tended to if provided with food and other neoessarii'ti they had a fair chance to live on and on for an indefinite period. They did not becomo immortal; "the splendid in vention of immortality" as a prominent American statesman has called if, was un known in primitive Egypt; but at least tbey often had faciUtifs fnr survival that were al most equivalent to immortality, as is pointed ont by Mr. G. Maspero, in an interesting contribution to The Irinceton Review, enti tled 'Egyptian Souls and Their Worlds," from which the facts in tins article are mainly derived. It !s easy to believe that the germ of the latter conviction of another and everlasting life was present in this crude notion of a double a soul apart from the body whtcti might continuo its existence. under favorable conditions, for an unlimited time. Since the double was a perfect imacre of the being to which it bad been linked at birth, it was natural that it should remain near where the corjise was buried, and par ticipate in its destinies. Having grown with the body, it ought logically to decay with the body, and thus there was reason to believe that the natural term of its existence after the body's death might be measured by the time required for the human frame- to disin- tegrate completely. Therefore, tho Ecvotian savants decided the best means of arresting the decomjxisition or the soul was to stop the decomposition of the flush, and to this. Mr. Maspero suggests, we probably owo the practice of emttaluung. Tho drvmg np and hardtiningof the mummy enabled it to last for centuries, and to serve as a kind of stay tor its double. STOVE OR WOODEN BODIES. But this exnecUcnt was not wholly satis factory, since even the best of mummies could not endure forever and then what would become of tho double f The only way they found out of this difficulty was to pro vide stone or wooden bodies against the pos sibility of the mummy raoldering away. ilost of the statues discovered in Egyptian tombs, Mr. Maspero assures us, were only bodies for the doubles of tho men buned in chera. To prevent them from being broken to pieces or carried away, they walled them up in dark cells some standing, some sitting. some squatting, according to taste or con venience; and all were as like the model as At could make them, that the soul might more easily adant itself to them. There was no limit to the number of such effigies hnt the pietv or wealth of the surviv ing relatives; tho more numerous they were tho better it was for th dead. Ono statue was, after all, only one chance of perpetuity, ' and '2, 3, 10 or 9i statues gave the double so , many chances more. The statues in the tem- i pies had the same meaning us those in the 1 tombs; tho doubles of kins or gods not tho ' whole, but certain particles were fixed upon them by prayers and consecration, and ani mated them. Thus it was that they were able tomoYehnd or anus, to answer questions, and to give forth oracles. Statues were not mere works of art, they were things alive, and are even to this diy, Mr. Maspero de clares, only the double or' old has turned into a bad spirit iu modern Egypt, and haunts the spot where it was revered uges auo as a saintly soul or pml. It i wont to frighten men out of their wits, to drive them raving mad, and sometimes to kill thm. But it loses its power when the IkkIv of stone with which it consorts has leen mutibted. That is the reason. Mr. Mas;?ro informs us, why s many statues in our museums display a broken nose or a battered cheek; the fella heen who found them defacxl them in order to lame tho double in tln-ni and prevent it from doing any harm. The tomb was the house of the double, and there on certain lays th9 family brought provisions of all kinds a custom which ultimately took the form of ouVrinrs that were nitre painted or carved imitations of natural meat and drink. (ilohe-Democrat. sidner Schoonmaker yesterday rendered a dissenting opinion. He holds that the bridge company is not a oommon carrier under the act to regulate commerce, aad therefore not entitled to demand of right interchanges of traffic with the common carriers to which HOW Architect Smithmeyer the provisions of the aot apply.

WAsmNiiToii City, Sept 18. The house committee investigating the charges against Representative Stahlnecker decided yester day that under the resolution creating it the character of materials urged for use on the library building does not come in the purview of the inquiry. It was held that the interference of a mem ber of congress was their only subject of in vestigation, a congressman having no right to interfere with the acceptance or rejection by a federal officer of bids made or materials submitted whero contracts for government work are to be let, regardless of the quality of tho materials. Smithmeyer then proceeded with his testimony, and detailed the manner, places and dates of Stahlnecker's alleged importunities in behalf of cement and marble contractors. He said that Stahlnecker and Oardoza the latter representing the New York Quarry company importuned him in the interest of certain kinds of cement anrt marble, quite a number of times, aud that be came to re gard their advances suspiciously, believing that they meant to improperly influence him. He was wined and dined tn this citv and elsewhere, he said, till the conrtesh became such a burden that ho would have rejected them had be not been afraid to do so; that he knew Stahlnecker was in position to do him (Smithmeyer) official barm, and be stood the attentions and advances as lone as he did. accepting the wine and dinner and suppers during a period covering many months. only because be was afrai to reject them.

The Boycott Breaks Out at St. Louis and May Cause a Strike. St. Louis, Sept 18 The arrival in this city yesterday of the first through Chicago, Bui ling ton & Uuincv trains over the W abash tracks caused a renewal of hostilities between the brotherhood and the former company. The brotherhood engineers employed as hostlers refused to honse the "Q engines. and the Wabash wipers refused to clean them, and as a consequence they were switched to a side track where they now stand covered with mud and grease. The non- brotherhood engineers found difficulty in securing board and lodging, as the brother hood men declared tbey would not eat or sleep in the same house with them. The Vt atmsh is bound by contract to house the "Q engines, and it is feared that an order to the Wabash employes to fulfill the con tract will be followed by a strike. Hwpt.

THE CHINESE EXCLUSION BILL. The Senate Sends It to the President A Deadlock In the House. Washington City, Spt. is. A bill was introduced in the senate yesterday to reduce postage to I cent an ounce. Sherman offered a resolution directing the foreign affairs committee to inquire into the relations be tween the United Htatee ot.d Canada, and what measures are necessary to promote the friendly character thereof commercially and politically.

Blackledge. were there alone with the justice, the attorney attempting to in duce Pruitt to compromise the suit which his wife bad brought against bim to recover the value of furniture which Pruitt was about to carry with bira to Richmond, Ind., when without any warning Pruitt drew a revolver and emptied it at the woman and Mr. Black- ledge. Two shot struck Mrs. Pruitt, one in the shoulder and one in the middle of her breast, inflicting a wound which may prove fatal. The third bullet struck Blackledge in the left side, but glanced off a rib and lodged under bis arm. The lawyer at once rushed to a window and jumped to the ground, some twenty-two feet, while the old justice grabbed a chair and promptly knocked the would-be mur derer down. Pruett is a well-to-do teamster, and by hard work and the aid of a $3,000 pen sion which he drew last spring, had accumu lated considerable property, which he bad sold, and bought a farm near Richmond, to which he expected to remove with his grown up children. The fact that his wife refused to sign the deeds for tbe sale and also his be lief that she and tbe lawyers were trying to cheat htm out of his money, was the cause for the shooting.
