We are the Western agents for the stove manufactures of Taplin, Rice & Co., and carry the largest stock of stoves west of Chicago. In buying of us you virtually huy of the manufacturers and at lower prices than any rAatt dealer can afford to make. It will pay you to see ns before you buy anything in the shape of a stove. WILLARD BAKER & CO., Opposite Harper Honse, Rock Island. General Superintendent Royce, of the C, R. I. & P., has Issued an order to all trainmftn on the Rock bland system, which has caused quite a commotion among the men themselves, and is 'likely to create much interest to the oublic. The new order directs that comaenciog De cember 1, 188S,e&chcooducior,eogiaeer, yard master, train dispatcher, section or bridge foreman, and officer connected with the operating department, and all employes in responsible positions as to the running of trains will be required to carry watch of certain standard of excellence. and shall have their watches examined by the company's examiner for certificate as to condition and quality, and once every three months thereafter. Each person will be furnished with a certificate which tbey must lake to cne of the company's examiners, who, if the watch is accepted, will sign and return to-bead of depart ment where party is employed. No charge will be made against the owner for this examination, but in case the watch will not come up to the standard of ex celtence required, it will have to be re placed by one which will. Each person should compare his watch with the standard time of the road and make a note of any variation on the memoran dum blank at least once a week. The blank, with directions; is to be furnished by the examiners. The other directions are as follows: If the watches need cleaning or repair ing, the? must be left with the com pan v 'a examiner tor tual purpose if the owner so desires, but it he prefers to take it to hi watchmaker, he is at liberty to do so, but the waich that he carries during the time that his own is being cleaned or repaiied must be examined by the company s ex bminer. Where watches are left with the company's examiner to be cleaned or re paired, a watch will be loaned by him to the owner :o be us ed during the time that the watch is under repairs. A watch rejected by one examiner caunot be parsed upon by another, txceptbythe chief examiner. The standard determined on shall be of a grade which shall be equal to what is known among the general American movement as the "15-jew eled patent regulator, adjusted to heat and cold." As railroad employes are continually coming in contact with more or less magnetism in telegraph offices and upon the road, and so much electricity is being used by the public, that an employe is in danger of having biB watch ruined or rendered unrelia ble by becoming magnetized, and it hav ing been demonstrated that this cm be overcome by the anti-magneiic shield, it is recommended that all employes con nected with the operating department provide themselves with watches protect ed by these shields as early as possible. Examiners will be appointed, who will be competent watchmakers; they wilt be located at Chicago, Peru, Peoria, Rock Island, Davenport. Brooklyn, Des Moines. Stuart, Atlantic, Avoca, Council Bluffs, Washington, Eldoo, Trenton, St. Joseph, Leavenworth, Kansas City and Keokuk. Their names and addresses will be given in a subsequent circular. Arrangements have been made with the examiners to carry a grade of watches of the required standard of excellence, and with either gold, silver or filled cases, containing the anti-magnetic shield (with out extra charge), and at the minimum cost of same, and will also allow pay ments to be made on the monthly or in stallment plan, to be deducted from the roll of the employe. Died In Colorado. A special from Georgetown, Col., speaks of the death there of Chas. J. Yates, a former wel 1 known citizen and merchant of Rock Island, who left here shortly after the close of the war. He had been a resident of Georgetown for twenty years. The cause of his death was a stroke of apoplexy superinduced by fall. About eighteen years ago he erected the Yates house at Georgetown, which has been run from that day up to the present time, the greater portion of the time by Mr. Yates. He is one of the few men who lived to this time who par ticipated in the Black Hawk war. Afters wards he was a soldier in the war with Mexico. This he followed up by joining the federal forces for the suppressing of the late rebellion. For several years past he has been quite feeble in health and bis demise was not unexpected. 1888. : a s J co mm eh. 3 t aS f 9 Pit I a lZ Rrx-kTflaud 4OT1 8395 ltt 1S76 Mercer 1 SJ3!t 1SW fell 443 McDonoiigh Si St M7B lf) 154 Hancock $rtt 899 415 Warren 2716 SM3 2fj0 053 Scbnyler 115 4 7fj 4S Henderson 1380 frtr 61 403 Totdi 19' 57 l.aeo mi!

Tbe jubilant republicans will celebrate tbeir victory in Rock Island tomorrow night. Mr. Chas. L. Walker, who is chairman of the committee on arrange ment, and Maj. C. C. Carter, who is to be marshal, have been hustling about for several days getting things in readiness for tbe grand blow out over the success of free whisky and free Chinamen. It is proposed to overdo the racket at Daven' port Wednesday night if possible, and the heathenish calliope is to be brought across the river to help carry out such a programme. There will be a street parade about the business part of town, going no further east than Twentieth street west than Fourteenth street, and a dis play of fire works on Market Square The Oread Dlaraae. The dread disease, diphtheria, is pre' vailing almost to the extent of an epi' demic in Moline, and some of the city physicians there have termed the type malignant and advised the closing of tbe schools. The majority of the doctors in that city, however, pronounce the die ease the result of filth and lack of sanv tary precautions on tbe part of the city The disease has proven fatal in tbe ma. jorlty of cases where It has appeared, and the city authorities should be ou the safe aide and forbid public gatherings and public funerals of deathB from tbe die- ease until it is shown that it has disap peared. Under the present alarming con dition of affairs in Moline, such public demonstrations as that of yesterday and last night ought never to have been toler ated. TweTrmanfer ttnaifi. Two steamers of tbe Lineban Ferry company arrived last night, landing at Davenport., One was the immense trans fer boat, Geo. W. Parker, and the other the Campbell. Tbe former left early this morning and the Campbell during the middle of the forenoon. The great Par ker was brought over the rapids by Andy Coleman, and he aays she is the finest handling boat that be ever took over the rapids. The Parker will go into the transfer trade at Paducah, Ey., and the Campbell In tbe transfer trade at Evans- vulclnd. A Dream. A dream has been dreamed which may not have at all been a dream. The dreamer who dreitnt this dream, how ever, says he dreamt the dream as fol lows: The car in which he traveled, he imagined, was one of Pullman's best, and is to be used to convey Harrison to Washington, this being its trial trip. After aligbting at the station be proceed ed directly to the great entrant to the popular regions below. He thought he met wilb no difficulty whatever in find ing the place, as he noticed a constant flow of people tramping toward the great arched entrance. On entering he was at once singled out by the guide ss a per sonage of a little more tban ordinary prominence, so he was shown a little more respect than tbe "common herd, and was ushered into tbe august presence of the chief mogul of a department. This mogul, he thought, was a fair representation of the hideous demon frequently pictured by the prohib tionists aB the personification of diBtilled corn juice. His reception formed quite a contrast fro-n the surrounding at' moaphere, as tbe former was moderately cool while the latter was most uncomforts ably hot. Owing to his partial prnmi nence and his former acquaintance with the chief mogul he was not cast into the fiery furnace at once, but at his request be was permitted to look through the different front rooms under tbe direction of an imp. In one room he beheld thousand or more people standing on one side and a row of furnaces on the other. Among those present were many whom be knew in Rock Island county and other places, but ibis did not surprise bim in the least. Here were several imps at work punching the fire and throwing the natives in, and sb each one would be cast to his fate upon a bed of coals, only a little "zip," similar to that produced by a fly when comins in contact with the blaze of a lighted lamp would be heard. They passed from this room to another, through which extended what seemed to be a lot of tel egraph wires. On these wires were hung lot of people, the whole exciting the curiosity of the visitor, wbo ventured to ask the imp what all that meant. Tbe mp replied: "Those fellows voted for high taxes at the recent election, they are too green to burn at present, so we hung them up to dry." This explan ation being sufficient they passed on into another room. Here were furnaces on eitber side. The atmosphere was terrible to withstand, but the great yawning fire was still more terrible. A great noise was suddenly heard, the dreamer raised p from the cot upon which be had take his midday nap, and after rubbing hi eyes learned that the cannon was being fired over Boss Wells' chances for the postoffice. Repnbllran Enthsiiiaam Tneorke at Marine an the Air Fine wtth Bit tordant Hound. Tbe immaculate g. o. p., the free- whisky, high priced clothing, ofc-L,ora-how-we-do-love-the-laboring-man party, the political organiiation of mutual id miration and benefit between manufact urer and laborer, belched forth great joy at Moline last night on account of the election of Harrison and Gamble. They paraded, yelled and tooted tin horns and painted the eastern suburb t sunset nue. They vied.with each other in making un earthly noises and kicked up so much dust and powder that the plague-stricken village did not get a wink of sleep all night. This morning there was seri ous thought of arresting the whole gang, including Deere, Rosenfleld, Wells, Kohltr, etc., for disturbing the peace. They enjoyed themselves hugely and worked themselves up to blood boiling heat, while the democrats long may they live were diligently searching for a real chilly spot where they could go and freeze to dtatb. The republicans wore roosters on their hats nd coats and a profusion of pretty badges all over themselves. Boss Wells, wbo is charged with beingjthe cause of the misctiief.kept out of flight, though it is reported he was in the city and even went so far as to raise the flowing bowl to the health of the candidate whose election had made the extract free and plentiful. There was any amount of discordant noises, for had been determined that the occasion should fittingly celebrate the temporary salvation of "Proud Moline's" re publicanism so terribly shattered by Sharp Silvia two years ago. Moliie con tinues to stand by her political parson and though cruelly slain by the penpie of Rock Island county on whom it was sought to impose him, he is still to be pro vided for by Cncle Sam because he belong to Moline. It was to be sure a lively, bright colored night for Moline. and tbe only wonder is that a peace loving people coald have survived it. uis Kckhart THE FAIR. Louis Eckhart, G ttinc Even Beyond ivi.tcat on. The Rock Island railroad ompany has filed application in the Uuited States dis trict court for the appointment ot a refer ee to confer with two others and decide pon the amount of damage to be paid by the railway comp-tny for the right of way through the Cherokee nation in tbe ndian territory. Tbe petition says that by an act of the legislature, approved March 2, 1887, the Chicago, Kansas & Nebraska railway company was granted the right to construct and operate a line through the Indian territory, beginning at the city of Caldwell, in Sumner county. and running to Fort Reno, in Indian territory, and from that place to Galves ton, Texas, and another line in the direc tion of Cisco Fodas. A map of the pro posed line was filed and approved by the secretary of the interior, and a copy was also filed in the office of John B. Mayes chief of the Cherokee nation. The law also provides that three referees shall be appointed to decide the amount of dam ages. One is to be appointed by the president of the United States, one by the chief of the Isdian nation and one by the president of the railway company con cerned. It is mde public in the papers filed that the president has appointed W. A. J. Sparks, ol Illinois, and the railroad company has appoiotea ex-ttovernor Crawford of Kansas, but the Indian chief stubbornly refuses To make any appoint ment, and declares that the railroad shall not be bui'.t through his country. The court is asked to appoint the third ref eree. WATCHES AND DIAMONDS. Watrhpa and Diamond round in Tea ad Coffee A SeTel Way af Intra- rlncGeodn. The names of all persons finding dia monds, watches, etc., will be added to this list daily. The Pacific Coast Tea Co, of San Francuco, have refitted the store at 309 West Second street, and in order to introduce tbeir goods, this company puts for thirty daya, souvenirs in every can of tea and coffee sold, such as solid gold, silver and nickle watches, also gen uine di tmonds in solid gold settings; also money and many other articles of less value. Every case contains a souvenir. The coffee can and contents weighs about three pounds; tbe tea can and contents about one and a half pounds. This ex pensive and novel way of advertising will be discontinued after thirty days, and those really choice goods will be sold strictly upon their merits, but without tne souvenir, ot course every purcnaser must not expect to get a diamond or a watch. This company claims tbat they have just as good a right to give away watches, diamonds, jewelry and money as their competiters have to give away glassware, chromos, etc. Get up a club.

The ponderous intellect of eome local republican enthusiast has been shame fully and cruelly wasted in tbe prepara tion of a railroad pass issued over the "Solid South Railroad to Cleveland Grove via Bandana Salt River. The thing is very funny and all republicans laugh at it of course, but it is feared the fellow wbo originated it must be laid out with brain fever by this time.

Willard Spenser's famous and popular opera, I ne i,uue ijcoon, was pro duced with all its musical and operatic grandeur, rich scenic effects and magnifi cent costumes, at Turner Grand opera house Pavenport, last evening, and many attended from this city.

R- Wilber Dramatic company puts in an entire week at Har per's theatre next week. The greatest drawing card of Mr. Wilber's uresent troupe is the farce comedy, "Three Wives to One Hushand," of which the Cleveland Plaindeoler says: Of all farce comedies recently produced here, "Three Wives to One Husband" is the funniest. The plot though not elab orate possesses the merit of originally, which is saying a great deal in these days of senseless compounds of hackneyed tales that are being palmed off as original plays. The comedy abounds in comical situations from first to last. The wed- wing scene in tbe second act. where tbe bridegroom under the influence of a sleep ing potion persists in falling asleep, is one of the many laughable incidents in the comedy, and fairly shook the house with laughter. The same play will be run all week. An Illrsal ttrand Jnry. Judge Howatt has decided tbat the Muscatine county grand jury for 1888 was illegally drawn. This decision in validates all tbe saloon indictments re turned this year, as well as all other work done by the grand jury, except in cases where further proceedings have been taken, twenty-five cases, however, being affected, all of which are dismissed. A new grand jury will be summoned for the December terra. The judge based his decision upon the fact tbat tbe judges of election returned 96 names of suitable jurors instead of 75, the correct number, and that tne auditor permitted this whole number to go to the clerk and sheriff, who in turn drew 12 names from them fJ use of envelopes (each envelope containing the names Irom one tewnship and a name being taken from each of the first 12 envelopes drawn out) instead of putting all tbe names on slips in the box at once and drawing 12 names ali ps therefrom.
