STATIONERY. 3 H 0 0 A m W b A FATAL DRIVE. BUY THE OLD A Toudj Mmn Accidentally Kiued at Hallne--nihapa or Minor Import ance. An accident, peculiar as it was unfor tunate in its details and attended as it was by fatal results, occurred at Moline yes terday morning. Emil Schroeder, who. preTiouB to three months ago since which time he has lived in Davenport was a resident of Moline, drove over yesterday with a companion, who like himself was a painter. The name of the other man has not yst been ascer tained, but both it seems were more or less under the influence of intoxicants. At any rate the first notice that waB given them was when they attempted to borrow a shovel in the upper end of that town, not stating for what purpose they intend ed to use it, but saying that they were going out to Riverside cemetery. The nixt trace of them was when both were pulled out of a ditch on the Riverside road, both badly injured, and Schroeder fatally so. Tbe Moline patrol wagon con' veyod the sufferer to his home on Front and Brown streets, Divenport, where it was discovered upon examination that his breast and spine bad been injured, and the services of four physicians were of no avail, for at 4 o'clock this morning he breathed his last. Exactly how the acci dent occurred is not known. An eye witness says tbe men got into a dispute when nearing the fatal spot, as to which should drive, and that Schroeder siezed the Hues and the horse which was blind, stumbled down into the ditch, the bugey overturning and throwing both men out, the horse tramping and falling on Schroeder. Schroeder was thirty-two years of ae, a member of the well known family of that name formerly residing in Moline. He leaves a wife and one child, another child having died a few weeks ago of diphtheretic croup and was buried at Mo line. His wife's maiden name was Lena Binke, daughter of Hanke Binke, of Hillsdale. Schroeder was a nephew of Mr. August Herkert, of this city. Last Saturday night Gottleib Meyer, who for two months has been in the em ploy of Warner's brewery, was walking on the Burlington tracks near the eastern city limits, when he wan struck by fn i;Ut train Xo. I t and knocked into the ditch. The train was at once stopped and the man tken to the Moline police station, where Dr. Dunn examined him and found the back and left si je injured. He was brought to St. Luke's hospital, this city where he is reeling easy though very sore and it is tieiieved a rib is broken, though nothing serious is upprehended. An engineer ol tbe steamer Wes. Ram bo caught his hand in the pitman when near Moline last night and had it badly crushed, several bones being broken. QUEEN OF THE HEAVENS. aa Important Period In Fair liana's MovcnientH"llarveat and Hantrr' noon The Naa. The Bun has now passed through more than half its southerti journey across the firmament. On September 22 it swept across the equinoctial line. For three months preceding that date while the length of days had been on the decrease and that of the nights on the increase, the days were longer than the nights. The difference in length was virtually elimin inated by September 22. and at that time the day light hours and darkness were of equal length, practically speaking, all over the globe. For the next two months following the date named, the days will still continue decreasing and the nights increasing in duration, but the nights will be longer than the days. The oppo site conditions, however, will prevail all over the globe south of the equator. The October moon was new on the 5th and Hill be full on the 19th. The full moon of September 20th was the harvest moon. That which reaches its full stage on October 19ih will be the hunters' moon. The interval between the succcs sive risings of the full moon in October will be small as compared with that of other months, except August and Sep- tcmber, although it will be greater than that of tbe latter. The reason for the trifling retardation in tbe case of the bar vest month is the nearness to the ecliptic, or path of the earth's motion, of that part of the moon's orbit traversed in Sep- tember. The angular distance between the moon's orbit and the ecliptic is but little greater in October than in Septem ber. Consequently there is a compara tively short interval between successive risings of the hunters' moon. IS IT MoDERMOTT? ALASKA REFRIGERATOR. Sixteen Walls for the Pres ervation o Ice. If Mo, a Hatter Await Htm In Rork 1m land County. In yesterday's St. Louis Republic ap peared a special dispatch from Wichita, which read as follows: A man supposed to be Patrick Mc Permott, who ft.tn.1v stabbed a man at Rock Island, 111., 'ast January, was ar rested here last night, and is now in jail awaiting identification by the Rock Islnnd authorities. He made a desperate fli;ht when arrested, Htid succeeded in badly wounding an officer, and was himself badly cut about tue face and body. The correspondent evidently alludes to the murder of Oaniel Dougherty by Mc Dermott, at Edington, in March. 1885 So far no word has come to Rock Island of the Wichita capture. It is to be hoped it is McDermott that has been caught, for Rock Island county yearns to inflict tbe full penalty of the law upon him for his horrible crime, and he will sooner or later be brought to the punishment he deserves. eaig, -FOR SALE BY- WILL&RD BAKER & CO.

The funeral occurred yesterday afternoon. SAVED THE TRAIN. erolc Act of Three Tramps at Bar tow Saturday Morning. As & usual thing one rarely expects to find any virtues in a tramp. On the con trary he is generally a bundle of vicious ness and depravity. But once in a while at least the tramp will develop a good quality, as shown by tbe fire at the Rock ! river bridge near Barslow, Saturday morning. A blaze was discovered by three tramps, and only for their timely intervention a dreadful catastrophy might baye happened. They had come from Savanna and indulged in the luxury of steeping in a box car Friday night Along about 4 o'clock in the morning they awoke cold and chilly, and it was suggested that a fire be built somewhere in the vicinity. Looking down the track, however, they saw a fire already kindled. It was the C , B. & Q bridge over Rock river. Hurrying to the scene as fast as possible, they started to quench the fire. Several stringers had already been de stroyed, and the rails had sagged so that it would have been impossible for a train to have passed over it. Just then one of them beard a rumbling in the distance, and having at one time been a brakeman on the road, realized that No. 3, the night express from St. Louis was due, and unless it was signaled to in time it would go through the bridge. lie hur ned as quickly as possible over the tres tle, waving bis cap as be ran. Fortun ately Engineer El I wood was keeping sharp lookout and he stopped the train a short distance from the death trap. Con ductor Strain hurried forward, and with the assistance of his crew and the three valiant tramps, soon had the fire entirely quenched. As a reward for their fidelity and brav ery Trainmaster Stanton ordered that tbe three peregrinators be housed and fed at the company's expense, until passes ar rived from Beardstown to take them to St. Louis, their destination- New Elm Street Qrocery DANQUARD & BROWNER Have just opened a Grocery on Moline Avenue, foot of Elm street, with a splendid line of choice Family Groceries and Provisions, They solicit a share of the trade and will make prices as low the lowest.

Louis Eckhart, Meeklng Inspiration. Chairman Thomas, of the republican congressional committee, returned Saturs day evening, and the Union, which must sneak with authority, i?ives away the whole slate of affairs as Thomas found them, when it very indiscreetly says: Republicans generally, he found, realize that the majority of 1836 is too light to rest upon, and propose to do their best to build it up." This attempt to conceal fear with an appearance of boldness is altogether too thin. Mr. Thomas found Mr. Prentiss gaining gronnd with such alarming rapidity that it took his breath away, and for two days he did not know whether he was in the Eleventh congres' sional district or Nick Wortbington's dis tnct, or even over in Iowa, where every tbini; is always democratic. Finally he hied himself to Chicago and there lay the matter before the state central committee, taking care to impress upon that highly responsible body the "abominable" con dition of things in tbe Eleventh district. After it became known tbat Chairman Thomas bad returned, the faithful flocked into his drug store and hovered about him for inspiration, but alas! poor Thomas could give it not, neither could he satisfactorily satisfy their wants. They asked far beyond his power to give and they went away none of them inspired, but feeling that if it must be so, Prentiss is about as good a man as the democracy could have put up. Polirr PotntN. A boy named Hass was severely bitten in the face in the lower end of town by vicious coach doff yesterday afternoon The brute was ordered killed. Police Magistrate Bennett has moved his offire across the street into the quar ters in Buford block formerly occupied by M . M. Corlieil. The room is much more desirable from point of ventilation, heat ing and general convenience. Frank Hurto, the Davenport drunkard was taken violently ill in the county jail Saturday afternoon, and upon the pre sentation of a physician's certificate by the wife of the unfortunate man. Sheriff Silvia released him. A man registered at the Union house Saturday night as Win. Matsen, of Chi cago. Yesterday morning when the land lord went to call him, it was found that the man had gone and with him the bed- ing quilts, sheets, blankets and piK lows. He had picked up his bed and walked. Lee Lage, a deck hand on the steamer Sidney, and August Hock got into a fight in Geo. Willand's saloon on First avenue between Nineteenth and Twentieth streets Saturday afternoon and several blows bad been eichanged when the men were separated and Lage was put out. Enraged at tbis and crazed by an oyer abundance of fiery fluid, Lage begun smashing in the front of the building. Be destroyed eneugh window glnss to gain entrance, when be took possession of the roost, driving everybody oat with a great ly looking dirk, and threatening sev eral lives. The police station was tele phoned, and Marshal Brennan and Offi cers Cary Bnd Sexton responded and took Lage and Hock into custody. This morn ing Magistrate Bennett held Lage in bonds of $100 for malicious mischief, and sent to jail in default. Hock was fined $5 and costs and sent to jail to serve it out. A ovel Affair. Tbe calendar sociable given in the par lors of ths First M. E. church last Friday evening, was in keeping with the reputa tion and efforts of the ladies of that cnurcn in preparing novel and unique entertainments. The exercises opened with the appearance of "days" in the form of appropriately dressed young la dies and gentlemen who took Beats upon the stage. Mrs. C. A. Steel played an enlivening march as the "days" entered. The representatives of the American noli days and festival days and church days were notable at a glance. The Fourth of July, Christmas day, St. Patrick's day, All Hallow'een day, Easter, Good Friday and also a cold day and hot day. The costumes were appropriately designed, were striking in their adaptation and rc -resentation. The programme commenced with a reading by New Year's Day, Miss Florence Angel; School Days, Misses Mabel Campbell, Minnie Jones and Mary Freeman who sang "Three Little Maids From School;" St. Patrick's Day Miss Jennie Dickman gave a recitation Hunting Day.

Six Fw Crat Loans By tbe Rock Island Building association Oct. 16, 1888. An 1 npleaant Predicament. The Rock Island republican clubs did not go to Muscatine on the steamboat Saturdav afternoon, and they are very glad now that they followed their better judgment and remained at home. The boat which bore the Davenport brethren down river did not see Muscatine, nor did any ot the passengers. The boat lay on a sand bar about half way down for fully twelve hours, and the passengers were obliged to follow Robinson Crusoe's fashion and provide for themselves with what the strange island afforded in the shape of fuel and food. They reached home at noon yesterday and marched triumphantly through the streets of Dav enport as if they had been down helping to elect McManua and helping Pat O'Mara out in Muscatine county.

The doctor fully realizes his condition, but has fought against his injuries with a success which has been surprising, even to those who knew him best. Edward Jackson, brother of Mr. Otis Channon Jackson of "The Cafe," returned Saturdav evening from Quincy, where he spent last week. He was an eye wit ness of the terrible accident in which Dr. Bowman was so seriously injured. Mr. Jackson sat near the amphitheatre on which were seated four thou sand people. Two fire balloons had been sent up and the third was about to start when the amphiteatre came down with a crash. Fully 150 people were in jured, of which Dr. Bowman fared the most seriously. Tne display of fire works was continued for two hours after the accident, having just commenced at the time of the unfortunate occurrence. The accident was due to a failure to prop erly brace the amphitheatre at the ends. The front was braced, but the west end gave way and the whole structure tum bled in that direction. Jackson says tbe daily papers of Quincy bitterly denounce the contractor who erected it and charge him with criminal carelessness. BRIEFLKTS. The dust has been laid low.

An animated discussion of the tariff question took place down by the river this morning, at the end of which both participants were completely knocked out. Tbey were so entirely exhausted that restoratives had to be applied before signs of life and consciousness could be detected. Quite a large number of democrats went from this city to Davenport Satur day night, to hear Hon. Frank Hurd, the Ohio orator, discuss the tariff issues, and all were well repaid for their visit . It was a masterly and convincing effort fine torchlight procession was one of the evening's attractions. SHADOWING THE CLERKS. Long Fidelity b Wo Guarantee That Em ploye An Temptation FrooC Within the last ten yean there have been so many defaulters skipping to Canada after yean of honesty and trustworthy service that the officials of tbeee institutions have grown to know that long fidelity la no guar antee that the employe may not succumb to temptation at last, and that all will bear watching. Said thedetectiTe: "Ifi a strange thins;, but yoa never can tell about a man. Borne will resist any sort of lore, but many a man is honest because he has never had great temptation to be otherwise." I've known men to handle money for thirty years and never have the slightest impulse to steel it, and suddenly they would fall into the toils of some adventuress and before they knew it they were plunged into a system of peculation and falsifying accounts that ended in ruin. Or else they thought they saw the chance, by some lucky speculation, to end their long bondage to clerking, they took one big sum, failed, and the next news they had levanted over rate the Dominion. "So most of the banks keep a special detec tive for that service, and every now and then he begins to shadow a clerk. He finds out where he goes and everything he does for a week or two, and from his report tbe bank official can judge whether his accounts need looking after or not. When the detective reporta that a new clerk is seen in noted re sorts and appears to be spending considerable money, they overhaul his books very rigidly and give him to understand that a man who lives a wild life is not likely to remain in positions of trust. An old clerk who has been with a house a long time is not under regular espionage may be once a year or so the de tective devotes a week or ten days to follow ing him about and sati&f ying himself he's in no mischief. The new ones are almost al ways under surveillance, and there's not much they do that is not known. Bometimes, while we are shadowing one clerk we run across another. "1 have beard some pugilistic tales from indignant yonng fellows who objected to being shadowed, and who, having caught tbe bundling detective iu the act, had pummeled him within an inch of his life, but most of them submit good natui-edly, knowing that the bank is more or leas justified in taking such precautions. It has a good effect on many of the young fellows, too; tbey keep out of places with unsavory reputations, know ing that there is a good chance of their ap pearance there being reported at beadqnar tera, and Burn a report militating strongly against their advancement" Brooklyn Eagle.

Mr. Scofield is presidential elector for the Eleventh dis trict and he is one of the most highly re spected thoroughgoing democrats in the state. He has few equals for ability and complete understanding of national issues. The democrats of the district made a wise move in nominating him for elector, for there is no other mas in the party better qualified to advocate tbe pol icies of the party or to place them in a manner to be understood by tbe voters. Mr. ScoBeld bas been talking contino nonsly since the opening of the campaign, and by the time election day arrives will have spoken several times in every county in tbe district.
