Sixteen Walls for the Pres ervation ot Ice. The Yoaac f ViiIbIbbbb In. atiseta Arrwrte la Rork Inland, Trim His Slory or Crime Trala Wrecking; and Other Diabolical Plot. Orcutt, the young burglar and train wrecker run in bj Officer Meenan in this city a week ago, and now in jail at Iowa City, where he has been wanted for some time, has by the confession of his own lips demonstrated that he ia a rillain of the darkest stripe. Since revealing his own wickedness and devilish plots he has become extremely nervous, and acta as though he were being pursued. In an in terview Orcutt stated that associating with bad company got him into his pres ent trouble. He states there was a tough lot of boys in Iowa City a couple of years ago, and be went with tbem. Hia own story of the attempt to wreck the train shows how desperate he was. He say 8: "I wanted to make some money. I talked over with the boys the idea of wrecking the train and getting a lot of cash. We would have been successful.but they all went back on me. and I concluded to do it myself. One dark night I went to the tool bouse east of the depot, broke in and got a set of tools that would open the rails . I carried them in a round abou t way to the west side of the river and picked out the best place, taking point just where there is a sharp curve. I intended after the wreck to show up as I had happened to come along like any one living near there. Had gone anywhere else my presence there would have given me away, but I took that place because I could be there when the crowd began to gather and I could have gotten lots of money by getting into the express car in the confusion and lots of people would have been thrown out or fallen under the cars whom I could have robbed. I knew that the train always car ried lots of express money and lots of people who had lots of money. Well, when I got there it was late. I went to work and got the fish bolts partly unloosened when I thought I heard some one coming down the track. I was mis taken in this, but I lost a lot of time. I went to work again and was just getting the rails loose when I saw the express coming. Ot course I had to stop then. and I hid myself in a lot of bushes. I thought I had done enough to throw the train, but she went over sailing and noth inh happened at all. Then I took the tools and hid them in a good place. About a week later I tried the same game on the east Bide of the river, and had, I thought, plenty of time, but when I had just started I saw a train coming a good way out east. Tou can see a long ways east of the city on the trark. I had to stop before I had it as I wanted it. I was trying to loosen a rail right over the first culvert east ot the city. The train came along and it too went over all right. I saw then that it was a freight train and I thought that I would go at it again, but tbe track walkers came so soon after that. When I started again I saw the express coming from the east and gave it up for a bad job. But I hid the tools in or near Ragan's nursery and dp termined I would try it later on. Mr. Ragan found the tools and informed tbe company and after that I could not get any tools.1 Orcutt is indifferent as to his fate, He says he is in for it and expects to get at least fifteen years in the penitentiary for bis crimes. When asked what led him to make his confession he answered "Why when Detective Ray got me from the Rock Island police I soon saw that he had been watching me a long time, and some oi the leilows 1 bad been running with were really detectives in dlsguisi and they pumped all out of me. I might as well own up when they had the tvi dence." Orcutt says his mother died whan he was very young; he does not remember much about her. His father has always been good to bim, but he had the train- wrecking ideas in his head and he could not rest until he tried to carry bis schemes into execution. THE STATE CONVENTION.

Dr. Brookes will give bible readings at each of the afternoon sessions of the convention, and help out the work of the coavention in many other ways. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Buford will entertain him while here. BWEDONA'S SENSATION. two Todbc In an Prominent Yonnc Lady In the Toll on a Choice or Bnrcinrjr MarprlolBC Bevelm tioaa. The Moline DitpaUh of last evening has the following particulars of a first class sensation in Mercer county: A profound atnsation was created at Swedona, just over the line in Mercer county, last Saturday, by the airest of three young people of that village for burglary. The partiea arrested are Harry Chilberg, Joseph Froerong and Miss Belle Huyck. Saturday morning Constable Reed Tomlinson and Deputy James Q. Clark called upon Miss Huyck at her home, one mile northeat of 8wedona, with evidence enough to demand what she knew of the burglary of Mr. Jaaeroerg s store at owe. dona last winter, and of 8. J- Ickenbom's store at Ophiem last spring; and on tbe strength of ber evidence Chilberg and Froerong were immediately bunted up and taken into custoday by the officers. They were given a preliminary bearing before a justice of the peace, and in default of the necessary bonds were committed to the county jail at Aledo, both making confes sion before leaving. Miss Huyi k was ar rested Saturday night at about 10 o'clock as being the acknowledged accomplice of the two young men, having secreted money and articles taken from both places. The preliminary neanng was, owing to the lateness ot the hour, de ferred until today. The arreBts were a great surprise to the general public, though not so to a few who assisted the officers in tracing the crime to the guilty parlies. The Jader berg store at Swedona was entered two or three times in succession last winter, and a considerable amount ot cash taken, together with a goodly supply of cigars and tobacco. But the largest raid was committed some months after at Ophiem, a small town, about three miles east of Swedona, in Henry county, the restaurant and store owned by S. J. Ickenbom, being entered and over $75 worth of watches, jewelry and other valuables taken. Since then tbe officers have been Becretly at work, and have gradually tightened the coil of evidence about three of Swedona's most popular young people. Child berg is not more than eighteen years of age, and is considered one of the most handsome and stylish fellows in tbe neighborhood and not long since entered Lombard Uni versity at Galesburg with fine prospects. He is well connected, being the son of Leander Childberg, a prominent and wealthy citizen of Richland Grove town1 ship, and very respectable. But the greatest surprise of all is the implication of Belle Huvck, a reigning belle of the place, and a brunette of more than ordi nary good looks She is about twenty years ot age. and tbe daughter of a wid owed mother. She has several grown brothers and sisters, til highly respected in the community. COAL VALLEY. 1 Coal Vallkt, Sept. 17. Wm. and P. C. Killing have commenced working theii sufcar cane.

The funeral' of Wm. Lee, of Cable, took place in the cemetery on Sunday. The remains were brought here by special train; two coaches filled with persons from Cable. Milan and Rock Island. The services were conducted by the Masonic "rner. mere Were something over sixty members of the diflerentlodgea present rum UW orton MUan and Roct! ui. and. The Hon. H. C. Cleaveland con ducted the services. Rev. A. R. Mor gan preached the sermon and Messrs. Cooke, Dodge and Don, of Hock Island, did tbe singing.; The assemblage of peo ple was very larga. The services were held in the Presbyterian church. The de ceased was fifty-two yews of age and leaves a wife and five children. At the funeral yesterday a horse be came unruly, reared and fell back on the cart in which Mrs. James Reed and son were ridijg. Some one near by rescued Mrs. Heed in time to prevent the animal from falling upon her. She was not in jured only shocked by tbe fright. Albert Thomas remains were interrea in our cemetery last Thursday. He was raised here, but has been living m Angus. Iowa, for some years. He had an attack of diphtheria, followed by typhoid fever The deceased was about twenty years of age. ! On Friday last there was a man here from Gilva. Henry county a collector for an agricultural implement house. He hired Battersby & Savilte's team to tike him to the country. Something went wrong with tbe harness. In the trouble the man got frightened, and jumping out of the wagon broke his leg. Dr. Huyett reduced tbe fracture. He was put on an express car and sent to his home the next day. . . 1 i BK1K.KLKTS. outa. BAinuife Both or Mitcotli. ft Ltvdk, I Kock Iilaxd, September S, 188S.

On Thursday evening of this week the pretty little comedy queen, Miss Mattie Vickers, appears at Harper's theare. will be one of tbe best comedy attractions of the theatrical year. We give below recent notice given Mattie Vickers by the Detroit Free Pretn. It is interesting; read it. Miss Mattie Vickers is unaffectedlv fresh and buoyant. She seems to love her work, and to put her whole heart and soul into it. She has a demonstrative personality, and she knows how to exers cise it. She has a style of ber own. a novelty in her method and manner, quite distinct from any other artist in ber special line. She never misses a point in the words she has to utter, whether hum orous or pathetic. She can also deliver little bus of sentiments with exquisite tenderness. Her dancing iB really in spiriting; we have not seen anything so full of animation and graceful ease. Criticism of tbe drama is unthought of in the presence of so strong and fascinating an individuality. Mr. J. E. Hurd, advance representa tive of the Prescott-HcLean company. was a caller at tbe Argus office today. Bis fine company headed by two of the greateat American stars, is booked for a day next week in "Virginius at Har per's theatre, and Mr. Hurd promises one of the most refined and best entertain' ments the city has ever had. Manager Steel is getting in a first class order of attractions and is deserving of success. The grand vocal and instrumental con cert at tbe Burtis opera house last even ing was attended by a fair audience. The tenor soloist. Prof. U. Whitmore, of Boa- ton, assisted by the Concordia Zither club, the famous T. K. quartette and Prof, liowlby s quartette, rendered a pro gramme that was excellent, indeed. The concert was a good one and should be re peated. Davenport Denwcnn-uazette Rock Island won honors at the Mt. Joy fair across the river last week.

Mhltipero twrievanreM. The Iowa slate railroad commissioners met at Davenport for a five days' session yesterday, to hear and consider tbe com plaints ot the wholesale merchants and the manufacturers in Davenport against the Chicago. Rock Island & Pacific rail road, the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern and the Minneapolis & St. Paul railroads jointly, and against the C, R I. & P. and the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad company separately, for exorbitant rates charged in the transpor tation of their manufactured articles, goods, wares and farm products. Hon. James T. Lane, of Divenport, appears as counsel for the complainants, while there are present oo behalf of the roads, General Solicitor Fish and General Freight Agent Bird of the C, M & St. P.; Thomas Wright, attorney for theC , R. I. & P. ; General Solicitor Tracy.of the B. , C. R. & N.; E. . Cook and Jobn C. Bills, attorneys for the C, R. I. & P.; General Freight Agent Sage, and other road officials and stenographers. The claim of the jobbers of Dtvenport is that the railroad companies mentioned are unreasonable in their freight charges out of Davenport, and discriminate against the petitioners. Yesterday was consumed in examining Fred Wild, commissioner of the tri city shippers' bureau, and a number of tbe wholesale merchants of DaveDport. Concerning the C..M. & St. P. Commis sioner Wild furnished some interesting in formation as to the Iowa dis tance freight tariff of May 10, which gov erned the roacis until Aug. 13, when it was slightly changed by the roads; tbe freight tariff Davenport to different points in Iowa on the C, R. I. & P. is sued December 20 last; the tariff issued by theC, R. I. & P. Chicago to points in Illinois in August a year ago, which ruled up to the lime it was changed De cember 20; the Iowa distance tariff is sued August 13 last, at present in force, which changed the May 10 tariff some little, and other tariffs. Then he looked at a statement showing the average rates of the tariffs compared with that of May 10. He said the latter document was pre pared in hia office. Several other tariffs marked as exhibits given and also his comparisons to show the average of in crease over tariffs used before May 10, and comparison of Iowa tariffs in use with those in Illinois. TheBe tariffs in eluded figures on the three roads com plained of mileage tariffs, terminal tariffs, distance tariffs, through tariffs and every other class and Mr. Wild ex plained the differences. Concerning the business of the C , M & St. P., Solicitor Fish made some inter esting statements. It operates 5,695 miles of railroad and receives (650,000 gross, less than it did in 1887. Con cerning the general business of the Mil waukee, be said J30, 000,000 of the capital will not receive 1 per cent dividend, and the balance of C21.0U0.000 will not re ceive 5 per cent. The company has put a mortgage of $2,500,000 to pay a divi dend, and tbe dividend was necessary in order to preserve the credit of the com pany. Tbe investigation will occupy almost the entire week and some interesting in formation to shippers and manufacturers promises to be developed. 12- la MeBiBriaa. Last evening Buford post, 243, G. A.
