CO 0 EH C 0 an M '"3 c Ever since the street car syndicate achieved the victory In 'Rock Island of getting the necessary rights to the bridge the few in Rock Island whose selfish in terests were alone affected by a move so important for the general public have been harboring the thought and chuck-. ling over it too, that Mr. Holmes would never make arrangements with the Rock Island road lhat would let him over the bridge. Whtn that gentleman told an Arqcs reporter a few weeks ago that there were a few interests yet to haft monize before the bridge line could be built, the monopoly organ came out and intimated that it would be a pretty long while before Mr. Holmes brought about the desired harmony . But he has not been sleeping, many as are the enter prises he controls. In the superior court of Cuok county yesterday Mr. Holmes applied for and obtained two in junctions restraining the Rock Island road from interfering with him in bit operations over Rock Island tracks in this city or the Rock Island bridge. The first of these injunctions is to "restrain the Rock Island road from interfering in any manner with the construction or operation of the Moline & Rock Island Horse Railroad company or its street railway tracks and street railway cars on Twenty-fourth street in the city of Rock Island, Illinois, acrOBs 8econd avenue and across the tricks and right of way cl limed by the said C , R I. & P. rail- 'ty company aod adjacent to the prem ises." The other is sought by and granted the Davenport & Rock Island Street Rilway company, also of the Holmes syndicate, restraining the C. K I. & P. road from interfering in any manner w;th the con strurtinn or operation of the lines of railway of the said Davenport & Rock Island Street Riilway company upon or across the bridge over the Mississippi which connects the island of IWk Island with the slate of Iowa, and from remove ing or disturbing its rails after tbey have been laid upon said bridges and from any legal proceedings by way of injunction or otherwise for the purpose of delaying satd Davenport & R-x-k Island Street Railway company in the construction or operation of Its said railway upon said bridge." As a consequence of these newly ac quired rights, Mr L. J. Lurk, general superintendent of track buiMiug of the Holmes Cnicaao lines, arrived this morn iog and after being in consultation with Supt. Schnitirer all day, it was decided to commence the construction of the line to the bridge via Third avenue tomorrow morning, and now comes as a resull'tm- ploymeDt for ne hundred more men whom Supt Sehnitger advertises for to report for duty at the corner of Third avenue and Twentieth street at 6 o'clock tomorrow morning. Meanwhile the track building operations on the M. & R. I line will be pushed westward down fourtb sveniM in cbatve of Mr. Cozatt, who has returned from Kansas. Three car ioads of straight steel rails for Rock Island bridge were delivered in Davenport this morning. ANNIVERSARY SURPRISE. The rnwalroate TUlt Two Bark laland Baxlneaa Hoaaca la a Day Waa. Maaiaklll aad Robinson A Tallaflerra Eaabarraftfted. According to the merchant's say, If there is one creature that survives this weather more than another. It is as un welcome old dame known as misfortune, an imaginary being which has visited two Rock island business houses within the past twelve hours and threatened others. But Rock Island is not the only city she has paid her respects to. In every city of the west, assisted and encouraged as she has been by unseasonable weather up to the present time, she has intruded her self upon many business communities. For a long time the commercial atmosphere ha been impregnated with rumors and even bold assertions of what might come, and would surely come if the weather did not change. Delightful as the atmosphere has been to the general run of humanity so far this season, it has been unhealthy even to the most critical stag to the, enter rising merchant who made hay while the sun shone and laid in goods for climatic changes which did not come. The rever sal of the slang-expression would have been true in tats case, for it was any thing but a "cold day when he got left. Never before in the historv of Rock Island, has the approach of winter, wit nessed so extensive, varied and elaborate a stock of winter goods in the local marts than has the present. Many merchant staked his all ii his Btock, and in som instances, by this enterprise and daring has the merchant perished. The back ward season has given a blue lone to bus iness. Bradstreet reports this condition of sffairs to exist throughout the west, where the merchant has prepared himself in advance for the usual kind of weath er. The report therefore that spread over town last night that two of the business houses of the city had closed their doors was not received with bo much surprise as regret. Although it was known that the reverses were to come, an eff jrt had been made to enshroud the actual coodi lion in secrecy until the assignments filed at the county clerk's office divulgei the facts. The first of these was that of WSC I1AM-KII.L. merchant tailor, who made an assii meat to Mr. Geo. Foster, and whose schedule shows the following: L1ABI.1TICB. Hrnklemao, Jackson A .

Mr. ana Mrs. uempsey s most intimate friends of the First Baptist church, together with a number of Mr. Demjftey's fellow employes of the Bur lington road, assembled at Mrs. Frank Horns' residence near by and proceeded rith packages and bundles to Mr. Demp- sey's house. A.fter the guests bad been mtde welcome and comfortable, Rev. H.C.

Though almost bewildered by the wealth and profusion of the gifts, Mr Dempsey recovered himself sufficiently to make a happy response.

Hood's Sarsaparilla ii a purelj vegeta ble preparation, being free from injuri ous ingredients. It is peculiar in iu curative power. At the Theatre. Bartley Campbell's comedy drama. "My Geraldine," was presented by a well selected company to a fair sized and highly appreciative audience at Harper's theatre last evening. The play, like all of Bartley Campbell's productions, pre sents many exaggerated and unnatural situations crowned by results equally as far drawn. But the verse likewise char acteristic of the great play wricht is beau tiful. The "Mary Carroll" of Marie Brainard, a lady well known to Rock Island theatre soers, was good what there was of it- TrojaGriswold made a pretty "Nora," while Seth Smith's "Phil Car roll" and Bryan O Lynn s " 1 eddy ' were both worthy impersonations, the latter's original song and dance being particular ly enjoyable. THE NOBLES. The next attraction will be the appear ance on Friday evening of this week of the eminent artist and popular favorites. Milton and Dollie Nobles, in Mr. Nobles' latest and most successful work, "From Sire to Son." The York Herald says of it: Milton Nobles' powerful new drama "From Sire to Son," is drawing large and fashionable audiences at the Grand Opera House. The play is most skill fully contracted, and the interest I maintained to the end. Mr. Nobles does some superb acting when temporarily stricken with speechlessness in the first act, and wins a spontaneous curtain fall nightly by his splendid work at the end of the second act, when he recovers the power of speech. The company an unusually strong one, and the stage settings nch and appropriate. Dollie Nobles' sympathetic acting in the dual role of mother and daughter is one of the most excellent features in an altogethe excellent performance. "From Dire Son" has promptly taken its positio among the very beet productions of na live dramatists.
