REMEMBER KAM & FLEMMIN&, MAKE A SPECIALTY IN LOW PRICES, N"o. 1811 Second Avenue. Between Eighteenth and Nineteenth Streets, iKw-KiuTRAss Bpir.Dixol ROCK ISLAND, ILL. A Mtsrmy Time in the Earli Political Hlatary of Koek IsUsd-How a ctty Ticket waa "Made" and Warn. Referring to the article appearing in the Arqds the other day, in reference to the directory of I860, an old citizsn Rave a reporter some?points of equally inter esting nature. He aaid the city election in the spring of 1859 waa more exciting than any election he had ever seen in Rock Island and he had witnessed a good many. R. M. Marshall, a Kentucky lawyer living here at that time, and O. J. Dimick were factional leaders. Both lived in the Third ward, both were dem ocrats, both headed rival factions and both had candidates r aldermen. Repeated attempts were made in the ward to nominate a candidate, but the meetings all broke up in a row. The Arohs informant said it was on this occasion when a tremendous meeting was held in an old building on Madison, now Twentieth street, r The hall was jammed. Capt. Friziell. regarded as a man of de cision as well as nerve, was made chair man. His friends insisted that he could control the wild elements. His effort failed. The crowd became boistrous and "?7. and Friziell, fearing personal at tack, to escape the angry multitude, jumped from the platform through a back window and got out. The lights were put out and the audience dissolved. Capt. Friizell was always joked about this incident in his life, but he insisted if he did lose his hat in the melee, he got out without any broken bones. The election day was close at hand. Dayid Hawes.the present coroner, was the republican candidate. Dr. liraekett was on a citizens' ticket and Mr. Jacob Norris waa an independent candidate. The democrats in the different wards had failed in their efforts to reconcile the various factions. A few ot the leaders decided to call a mass meeting in the court house. The crowd was enormous. Everybody went to see a row. The fao tionists had been seen and given to un derstand that they must keep quiet; every now and then there was danger of an explosion, but finally the meeting was snauea lor business, it had been ar-. ranged for Mr. Isaac Negus to act chairman. A hat of democrats had been selected as the committee and a ticket for mayor, aldermen and other officers had been agreed upon for this committee to present to the meeting. Mr. Negus did not show up at the proper time. He was visited at bis home hurriedly, where he wa9 found. He insisted he could not go, that a row was certain and he did not wish to be in it. Erery argument possi ble was used to get him out and he finallv consented. But after arriving at the court house he insisted some one else should take the chair. But be was told that upon this occasion it was expected every democrat would do his duty. He took the chair. Harry Williams, book keeper at that time in Mitchell & Cable's bank, was made secretary. He too in sisted on decliniog. After a word of en couragmcnt.quietly spoken to bim he took his seat beside Mr. Negus. With out being invited, Dr. Ciolina took the floor and commenced a vehement speech. A whisper in bis ear soon silenced him. Then County Treasurer Robert Shaw moved that a committee be appointed to nominate a ticket. Mr. Negus had beeu handed the names of the committee dur ing the day, with the request that he memorize tbem'so that be could appoint without besitationor delay. When fctne time came tor him to an nounce the committee, the names had es caped him. He deliberately drew the list from his pocket and commenced repeat ing the names. Qaincy j McNeil espied bim. and rising from his 'seat, yelled out: 'Hello! Negus, what are you taking from your pocket?'' This created a yell, but the old man kept at his work. He announced the committee; they retired and very soon returned with Capt. T. J. Buford for mayor, Messrs. Mylo Lee, James M. Bu ford, David L. Cunkle and John Warner foraldermen and other city officers. The election came off and every man on the democratic ticket was elected. The dem ocrats of Rock Island never made a more complete sweep or gained a more trium phant victory. Everybody was excited. Processions paraded the streets with bands playiog at the head of enthusiastic followers, and the friends of the different tickets worked with a will for victory. Good Pnrpeaea far Which the Brother hood Wu Institute and How They Are Too be Aeeoaapltshed. The new pilot organization, the officers of which were given in last night'a A Rons ia not a "pool." The wage question does not enter into the objects of the as sociation . The name is "The Brother hood of Upper Mississippi Pilots" and the chief object is by organized effort, to secure the further improvement of the river and the prevention of obstructions, thus making its navigation less difficult and dangerous. The pilots hope, by as, sociation, to improve their efficiency and be thereby better enabled to perform their duties with satisfaction to them selves and their employers. No action was taken prejudicial to the interests of tbo pilots' employers and no effort was made to fix the rate of wages, but each individual member was left to stand on his own merits aa to the compensation which he shall receive, and with the most friendly feelings their employers are in vited to assist them in a movement that is intended to benefit all. The association will locate fifteen "In formation Boxes" at convenient places along the river, where valuable informal tion as to snags, changes in the channel and other causes of danger will be depos ited by members learning of the same. Each member will have a key to these boxes and can keep well posted- all the time. It will be the duty of a brother hood pilot, in possession of information of special importance to hail any steamer be meets having association pilots, and deliver such information or give such warning as will be necessary to prevent accident or danger. They have also em ployed an assistant secretary, who will have a list of all members desiring em ployment. Owners and masters can ap ply to him for information which will en able them to secure pilots, when needed on short notice. This plan will bring man and job together in the quickest possible time. There are several evils that can only be remedied by united ef fort, and many possible benefits that can only be secured by acting together harmony. The next annual meeting will be held at Stillwater. Minn , on the first Tuesday in December, 1889 IH A PITIABLE PLIGHT. A Woman la whirh Rock Island May be Iotereated, Heartleoaly Deserted, hot Helped by the Omaha Police. As Omaha paper has the following which may involve more or less interest to Rock Island: A sad case of sickness developed at No. 1310 Davenport street, this morning. mi a- unuci, wins ui luc -uuuaciimnD, rents rooms at the above number. While this lady was out of the city Saturday. her housekeeper rented a room to one Wil liams, a Western U nion telegraph opera tor. Williams represented that his wife had just arrived from the east, and the two were given a room that bail formerly been occupied by Williams and a fellow operator, Martin, also employed by the Western Union. After Williams and the woman bad occupied the same room until morning, Williams left and has not been seen since. At 1 o'clock Monday the woman, whom he represented as his wife, gave premature birth to a child. She is now lying at the point of death. since the unfortunate young woman was taken sick she has made a confes sion. Her story Is that she was employed at the Globe hotel as a dining room girl. raor to her coming to Omaha her home was in Rock Island, 111. Last summer, while in Muscatine, la , she met a man named Miller, who be trayed her and was the father of her child. On July 4 Miller was accidentally shot and killed. This was after tbey were engaged to be married. She then came to Omaha and has worked here at different places since. Williams and Martin, she claims were her friends, but it is a fact they deserted her when she was at the point of death and needed s friend if she ever did. Both these men have resigned their positions wiih the Western Union Telegraph company. Her affidavit made before (Jeorge W. Peck, a notary public, was to the effect that Miller was the father of the illegiti mate child and that the miscan-iHge was wholly caused by her slipping and falling on the sidewalk. Doctors Coe and Nichols are attending her. Her name, she says, is Minnie Burger The police have raised $35, which tbey gave to her today, as she was left penni less. Had Mrs. Leeder been at home when the woman was brought to her bouse, it is not likely that Bhe would have been admitted, but now the woman is too sick to be moved. Williams is strongly suspected by the police of knowing too mub about ttie affair, and if he can be found there is no doubt that he will be arrested. Detec tive Ormsby is still working on the cese. ew Elm Street Grocery DANQTJARD & BROWNER Hdve just opened a Grocery on Moline Avenue, foot of Elm street, with a splendid line ol choice Family Groceries and Provisions, They solicit a share of the trade and will make prices as low M the lowest.

John Dillon, the comedian, well known to theatre-goers in this city, a short time since was en route from Ft. Scott to Kan sas City to fill an engsgement at the lat ter place, when, glancing over a morning paper, bis eye fell upon a piteous appeal to the good people of that city to come to the aid of the children's home that was about to be abandoned. John is a father and a grandfather, and the thought of four score helpless babies being thrown out upon the mercies of a cold world was too diuch for his generous nature. Call tng his manager he said: "Here is a chance to sbow what we would do with the 'earth' if we had it. Give them benefit, not of a quarter or half, but the entire receipts." The matter was sub mitted to one of the secret societies wbo in connection with the christian ladies took the benefit in charge. Tickets sold rapidly; many capitalists not to be out done by the comedian'! liberality, paid $100 for seats. The theatre was crowded and the curtain went up on an audience representing over $3,000, every penny of which was turned over to the home. The history of the stage does not furnish nobler or more generous act. The Paraaox. Lovett & Johnson's equine and canine paradox opened its engagement at Har per's theatre last evening. The troupe is composed of fourteen ponies and about fifty dogs, all so finely trained that they do all but speik. and one or two of the dogs make a good stagger at that. The performances are all entertaining and amusing and are given under the direc tion of Prof. Staub. The most novel and at once interesting features were "The visit of Mr. and Mrs Benedict" an act performed by the dogs "Benedict," "King" and "Count." The backing act by the ponies "Romeo" and Juliet," the waltzing act by the ponies "Dottie Dim ple and "Eureka." the teetering perfois mance of the ponies "Sour Drop" and Juliet," the revolving pyramid by twelve dogs, and the one by five ponies and and twenty-five dogs, and by far the most marvelous, the tight rope walking feat by the dog "King" The natural persistency of this animal and final success after falling several times when he had almost accomplished it. waa won derfut and brought forth enthusiastic ap plause. The programmers crowded with pretty ana unique performances, in dem onstration of what can be done by pa tience and firmness with dumb animals. This afternoon there was a matinee, and to-night the entertainment will be giyen for the last time. Hoopital KepoitfbrSovemlier.

Schnitger looses a valuable assistant. The entertainment to be given for the benefit of the High School piano, at Harper's Theatre next Tuesday night by the famous Imperial quartet, of Chicago, will be one of the most select and in every way cultured entertainments of the season. A very worthy cause will be aided by patronizing it. There is a very pretty and attractive winter scene in one of the show windows of the Golden Eagle emporium. The ! view shows a snow palace, a skating sur face with cracks in the ice and danger signs, a vast field of snow, toboggan slide, snow man, etc. The arrangement is very neatly designed and realistic in appearance.
