STATIONERY. H a o b THE ADVANCE IN FLOUK. ''MELT CM IN PARVO." THE CATHOLIC MISSION. BUY THE OLD REFRIGERATOR. Sixteen Walls for the Pres ervation ot Ice. T What Brad at reel Attribute the CatueHome Local Opinions on this All Important Knbjecr. One hears much talk about the advance of 40 to 60 per cent in price of flour, ac cording to grade and people are inclined to place the cause on "Old Hutch's" cor ner on wheat. Bfadstreet'e explains that tbe conditions of the wheat market is the true cause. Had thesn conditions not existed Hutchinson would have failed in his corner. The advance in flour is, of course, nearly in proportion to gain in proportion to gain in wheat. In England, where lies our chief market for a large share of our total annual flour exporta tion, the price of home grown wheat has declined, owing to poor quality, but flour (from home grown wheat) has advanced about 2 per barrel. With this situation to back the 30 per cent higher winter wheat in the Uoitert States and a greater advance n the price of No. 1 hard spring wheat (owing to decreased production.) the 40 per cent edvance in the price of Sour in the United States is thoroughly warranted bv apparent international trade conditions. In brief, nearly if not quite the hole appreciation in the price of flour is legiti mately based upon the apparent statisti cal position of wheat, and has been in fluenced but triflngly, if at all, through additional impetus lent by the late Sep1 ember corner. Keduced exports, re duced purchases by millers, higher prices for wheat and for bread, are not, there fore, the outcome of the corner in Sep tember wheat, and have not been aug mented 5 per cent., if at all, by it. It is a common error with many to mistake for a cause that which should be classed as an outcome or consequence. Two business men were talking the matter over in a well known drug store yesterday and a conclusion that both agreed upon was that no matter how much wheat and flour advanced the far mer would not be a nickle financially wiser for it. Because they both said the wheat was in the hands of the middlemen the elevator owners before it was har vested or even sown. That the increase in the demand for modern expensive machinery had made it necessary to bor row money to cultivate tbe soil and grow and harvest the gram and the crops were mortgaged for this money before the grain was put in the ground. "Mara and the Juries. It is not likely now because Pat O'Mara is a candidate for state's attorney that bis manipulations of two years ago will be forgotten when he attempted to buy votes for Parson Morgan, and besides offering pecuniary assistance said that if Mr. Morgan was elected he would ap point a friend of his as deputy, and there fore considerable influence could be brought to bear on juries. As state's attorney, O'Mara would hsve more fluence with tbe juries than any other one man, and if he showed such a disposi tion to interfere with the ends of justice ras accredited to him two years ago, it is hardly probable that the people of the county will care to elect him to position of such great trust. Down tne 4i-eat Kiver. Messrs. Jim Dixon, Judd Repine, Dick Newberry and Dan Strec feer started for tbe mouth of the Mississippi yesterday on it boat of their own construction. The barge was fully equipped with warm cabin, a stove, table, benches, bed, cook ing utensils and a good supply of provis ions. Tbe boys expect to fl9h and hunt and take in all the important cities along the route and reach New Orleans about the holiday season. It will no doubt be a pleaseant as well as a novel trip. Other flat boats are in course of construction for tbe same journey. Sef-Ceania. Beautifully FiiisM. Ml Me, A Remarkable Coincidence. A remarkable series of coincidence is shown in the deaths of two young men of Jackson county, Iowa. Their names were William Shanahanand Dennis Bon ovan. They were each born and raised in the Barae town, were each twenty-seven years of age, both avere married the same day and both their wives died within a day of each other. Both the younz young died yesterday and they win be buried tomorrow. It is said an old fortune teller long ago ctst their hor oscopes and said their fortunes would be identical. I turn to Bin Kofk fount? Horaeofthit Rioted Corrependent . Bomethinx of Iowa Things In the Upper Knd. , Josltth. Oct. 17. After a month's oleasant visit to Iowa we arrived at home on Thursday morning. The western part of the state is suffering from high freight rates and high rates of interest. - Honey can be borrowed upon real estate at seven per cent, but as notes fall due, two per cent per month is charged, and as a con sequence a large amount of farm property is falling into the hands of the money lenders. The voung peoule had a party on Fri day evening last at the residence of Mrs. Ed. Donnabue. Messrs. Stephenson and Brant were the musicians of the evening. Twenty-three numbers were issued. A large number of hoes and shoals have died and are still dying in this local -ity and surrounding country. All kinds of recommended nostrums have been ad ministered to no purpose. The hog seems to be an awkward patient to deal with. We are told 'the devil entered the swine." and I believe he forgot to come out. For onr part we wish the animal would soon become extinct. Our motto is, "less measly pork and moie juicy deef." But so long as it is the cuBtom of the country to waste the corn crop upon the critter, farmers should remember that dogs should either be shot or tied up. Tbey prowl round at night and will carry disease from one yard to another. Tbe political excitement that seemed to prevail in this locality a few weeks ago has somewhat subsided. One of our far mers in a soliloquy was overheard to say; "It is strange that the farmers of this country have had the wool drawn over their eyes so Jong by these protective blatherskites. But then they are beginning to understand better what concerns their own interests." On our return home on Thursday even ing last we were serenaded by those cele brated guitarists Mes9rs. Tomer and Parker. After playing an air outside they entered our residence and for a couple of hours discoursed the most ex quisite and angelic music which for the time heme Beemed to transport us to tbe seventh heaven. Thanks gentlemen, come again. "If the republican party is going to let opium in free, wouldn't it be good policy to let John Chinaman in to smoke it It will be remembered that Mr. Saville Johnston, in his speech at Joslin, claimed the prohibitory law of Iowa as a republi can measure. In reply I stated that the prohibitionists having become 12,000 strong and the republican party fearing defeat, made overtures to the probibi tionists to submit a prohibitory amend ment and that tbis was the agreement entered into. As the truth of this has been called in question, I would say that the Rev. J. H. Lozier, who was the first third party candidate for governor and who is now a republican stump speaker, substantiates the above as correct. And J. Ellen Foster, president of the Iowa W. C. T. V., was the author of the phrase, 12,000 strong, in describing the vote of Dr. Jessup for governor in 1877. "The actual number of votes cast was 10,545 according to one table and 10,639 according to another. This was immed iately followed by a radical conversion on the part of the republican party." Why didn't James G. Blaine travel through and point out to ns the number of poor people in those protected coun tries France, Germany, Russia and Italy and remind us that wageB were lower in those countries than in free trade Eng land? WThy don't he show us the condi tion of that old protected country China, where skilled labor earns twenty cents a day, and its inhabitants are driven away by the thousands to seek homes elsewhere. If he had spent half the time traveling through England with his eyes open that be has spent coaching it over the hills of Scotland with Carnegie, he would have made the grand discovery that the bulk of England's pauperism is the result of intemperance and misap propriated earnings and not in any way connected with free trade. Ex-Supervisor John L. Noah is dan gerously sick with inflammatory rheuma tism . He is not expected to recover. Dr Morgan is in attendance. Mr. C. H. Hubbart, of the implement firm, is driving out today to collect some of that which we are told is the "root of all evil." A. G. Brewster is now comfortably ensconced in his new store. It is hand some, roomy and convenient . This is the day appointed for register ing, and tbe officers are gathering for that purpose. Multuh in Parvo . The Interesting and Impressive Ser vices which are Daily Being Con ducted at St. Joseph's Chnreh. The priests who are conducting the mission services In St. Joseph's Catholic church, as mentioned in yesterday's Anacs, are what are called "Paulists,'' taking the name from St. Paul, and be lieving that they were called to the gos pel much after the manner in which the apostle was himself. There is something peculiar about these priests, as they are all converts to Catholicism from some other religious denomination. Father Lyman was a Congregational minister of much prominence before entering the Roman Catholic priesthood, though Fa ther Smith has worn no other priestly orders than those of the church, he now serves. The priests are both from New York city, and with others are sent out to lecture on the dogmas of the Ro man Catholic church. They were at Davenport last week. Both are scholarly men, and orators. Services are being held daily at 5 a. m., 7 a. m., 8:30 a. m. and 7:30 p. m., while mornings and afternoons are devoted by the yisiting priests to hearing confessions. BRIKFLETS. Will G.

There will be a Sunday school anniver sary at the Methodist church next Sab bath afternoon and evening. Last week Daniel Jones, of Western township. Mercer county, two miles east of here, died. He was over eighty years of age, and a native of Wales. Mr. Wm. McUonigal, who formerly lived near Minersville, was a brother-in-law of Samuel Montgomery, but has for some time lived in Chicago. The re mains were interred in Homestead ceme tery on Saturday. Mr. McGonigal was a native of Ireland. He had been ailing for over a year.and was about sixty years of age. On the 13th F. C. Killing, Sr., of Rural, died. He had been confined to his bed tor over seven weeks. His disease was a type of typhoid fever. Mr. Kil ling was a native of Westphalia. Ger many, and was born Nov. 23, 1824. He came to this country in 1836, landing at St. Louis and living there one year. From there he went to Camanche and from thence to Lyons where he remained till 1841, and for three years was in the employ of E. P. Reynolds & Co. In 1844 he purchased a farm io Rural town Bhip, where he has resided ever since. He was married to Miss Jane Patterson. Si'pt. 15, 1852, the result ol this union beius six children, three of whom sur vive him; William H. and Jennie W. who are single, and r ranees u. who is mar ried; the three preceding him being John, born in 1853; Mary, in 1857; and the other one died in infancy in 1864. Mr. K. has filled many important offices of trust in the township. He served as postmaster a number of years. He was a man of strict integrity, a good neighbor, charitable and attentive to the afflicted. He joined Beulah Presbyterian church in 1854 and has been a constant member and liberal supporter ever since. His remains were laid in their last resting place in the family lot in Beulah ceme tery on the 15th inst. A very large con course of relatives and friends followed to the grave. The services were con ducted by the Rev. Black, of the United Presbyterian church. The scripture les sons were solemn and the sermon appro priate. The choir sang the twenty-third psalm and concluded the exercies with "JMearer My ttoa, to inee. ine oe reaved family, through the officiating minister, gave their sincere thanks for the kindness of the people during the illness and to the respect shown to the memory of the deceased in attending the last sad rites.

Of course he buys a box of the fasteners, and the lady seeks another victim to practice her art upon. Keeplc Dark. At Turner Grand opera house at Dav. enport next Sunday the great comedian. 8. T.

Patrick O'Mara, of this city, was one of the tail-end orators. In a spirit of all candor and fairness it must be said that the grandson of his grandfather is gain ing in favor among this class right along. SvOiie Beyond. There died at the residence of his son, Mr. Ira G. Whitehead, at Sears yester day. Mr. Silas Whitehead, one of the pioneer residents of Rock Island county. He had been broken down by the infirmi ties of age for some time. He was born at Columbia, Ohio, July 21, 1803, and came to Rock Island countv in 1839, his home having been here constantly eince. He leaves two sons, who are the last sur viving members of his family Ira G. Whitehead and another son in California. He was a -brother of the late Ira White head, president of the late Rock Island county old settlers' society. The funeral was held at 2:30 this afternoon, and was largely attended. (Jetting Better. The glad and gratifying news comes from Quincy that Dr. Bowman is rallying from the shock of his recent injuries re sulting from the falling of the amphithe atre there, in a munner that is surprising to his medical attendants. At last rcr ports received this morning he was gain ing steadily and unless a relapse comes, will be in condition to be brought home the last of the week. If indomitable never-failing will is all that is necessary to pull the doctor through, he will get along all right, and the prayers of tbe community are that he may. Swt-n. Itleb Cuming. The democratic county commute has been fortunate in securing a date in Rock Island for Gen. Herman Lieb, of Chica go, the well known German orator and writer on economic questions. He will speak at Harper's theatre on Friday even ing, and one of the best addresses of the campaign is promised, as there is proba bly no man in the state who has studied the tariff question more carefully and in telligently than Gen. Lieb. Follttra In the Connty. Hon. T. J. Scofleld delivered a master ly tariff address before a large audience in the Port Byron rink last evening and Hod E. W.

Owing to the fact that Stoddard's ball at Edgington is engaged on next Friday evening for a dance, the democratic meeting advertised for that night has been cancelled, and a meeting will held there later. How Jnstire Mlm-arrles in Fate or -'Suspects." Mr. Borodin, a well known writer for the Russian magazine, "Amiais of the Father land," was banished to the province of Ya kutsk on account of the 'dangerous" and "pernicious" character of a manuscript found in his house by the police during a search. This manuscript was a copy of an article upon the economic condition of the province of Viatka, which Mr. Borodin had sent to the above named magazine, but which lrp to that time had not been published. Mr. Borodin went to Eastern Siberia in a con vict's gray overcoat with a yellow ace of diamonds on his back, and three or four months after his arrival in Ya'iUtsk he had the pleasure of reading in the "Annals of the Fatherland" the very same article for which he had been exiled. The minister of the in terior had sent him to Siberia merely for having in his possession a "dangerous" and "pernicious" manuscript, ana men lira o. Petersburg committee of censorship had cer tified that another copy of that same manu script was perfectly harmless, and had al lowed it to be published, without tne cnange of a line, in one of the most popular and widely circulated magazines in the empire. A gentleman named utensin, m -aioscow, was exiled to Siberia by administrative pro cess in ISSo merely because, to adopt the language of the order which was issued for his arrest, he was "suspected of an Intention to put himself into an illegal position." The high crime which Mr. Otchkin was "sus pected of an intention" to commit was the taking of a fictitious name In place of hia own. Upon what ground he was "suspected of an intention" to do this terrible thing he never knew. Another exile of my acquaintance, Mr. , was banished merely because he was friend of Mr. Z , who was awaiting trial on tho charge of political conspiracy. When Mr. Z --'s case came to a Judicial investication he was found to be innocent and was acquitted; but in the meantime Mr. X , merely for being a mena or tnis in nocent man, had gone to Siberia by adminis trative process. In another case a young stndent, caliea Vladimir Sidorski (I use a fictious name), was arrested by mistake instead of another and a different Sidorski named Victor, whose presence in Moscow was regarded by some body as "prejudicial to social order." Vladi mir protested that he was not Victor, that he did not know Victor, and that nis arrest in the place of Victor was the result of a stupid blunder; but his protestations were of no avail. The police were too mucn occu pied in unearthing "conspiracies" and look ing after "untrustworthy" people to devote any time to a troublesome verification of an insignificant student s identity. 1 here must have been something wrong about him, they argued, or he would not have been arrested. and the safest thing to do with him was to send him to Siberia, whoever he might be ami to Siberia be was sent. When the con voy officer called the roll of the outgoing ex ile party Vladimir Sidorski failed to answer to Victor Sidorski'a name, and the officer, with a curse, cried: "Victor Sidorskil Why don't you answer to your namef' "It is not my name," replied Vladimir, 'and I wout answer to it. It's another Si dorski who ought to bo going to Siberia." " VV hat is your name thenr Vladimir told him. The officer coolly erased the name "Victor" in the roll of the party, inserted the name "Vladimir" and re marked cynically: "It doesn't make a d d bit of diLerenceF tieorge K.ennan m Tne Centurv.

There are about twelve cases of diph theria in the city at the present time, and although the fact of several having been reported close together has caused alarm and given prevalence to the idea that there is something of an epidemic as is j the caee in Moline this is not so.

Notwithstanding that tbe Abocs has sboxn that City Attorney McEnir; was agisted in only one case, (Weinberger) for which the city had to pay $150, the Union continues to state that additional fees of $437.25 were allowed. Before criticising Mr . McEniry too severely, it might be well for the Union to pay a lit tle attention to the present state's attor ney, to whom O'Mara even gave a direct slap iu the face in his speeches at the be ginning of the campaign, by saying that if he was elected state's attorney he would not be found soliciting the board of supervisors for an appropriation to pay additional counsel for prosecuting some case.
