The Trial of thfi PreaMI KI4r of
the Koek llan SI. E. IMMrlrt and
the Peart a Preaefcer Kaa...The
A conclus on was reached in the trial
of Presiding Elder M. A. Head at Gales
burg Wednesday evening, and the com.
mitted made its report. The committee
And that tbt charge, that of defamation of
character, is not sustained, but that one
specification (wherein tbe elder had ac
cused Iter. Hooher with owing debts
amounting ti $1.8(0 which they found be
bad made provision for) is proven. They
simply recommend that Elder Head be
reprimanded, but unite in recommending
that the bisl op return him to this district
for another ' ear.
Before th close of the conference Rev.
M. A. Head, as presiding elder of the
Rock Island district, read bis report.
The Rev. M. A. Head was born in
Highland county, O , March 4, 1845. He
was convert h1 at the age of eight year,
and united with tbe M. E. church. He
was educate ! at tbe Ohio Wesleyan uni
versity, loct.ted at Delaware, O. He
served as a private in the wai of tbe re
bellion, and is now a member of the G.
A. R. In 166 be entered tbe Cincinnati
conference, and in I860 was transferred
to the Central Illinois conference, in
which be ha received the following ap
poiotmente: Molioe, Carthage, Macomb,
Abington, Oalva. Siren tor, Peoria, fi
nancial secrrtary of Hedding college, and
presiding elder of the Rock Island dis
trict. The Rev. M. A. Head is an unlirs
ing worker. Iu the management of Rock
Island diHtiict during the past year bis
course has been highly commended.
Brief extracts from bis lengthy report
will be of irterest:
About eijht hundred conversions and
six hundred accessions have been repor
ted on the ristrict this year. Four new
churches hare been dedicated. In South
Moline a heiuliful church property, worth
$2,000, hm been secured and ded
icated fiee from debt. This
commendable and successful enter
prise is largely due to tbe untir:
iog energy of Dr. Albro, the pastor of
our First church in Moline. At Btrstow,
on the Hampton charge, a little society ot
twelve members, organized a year ago,
has succee led in building a beautiful
church, val led at $1.61 HI, which wax ded
icated free of debt June 16 At Carbon
Cliff, on the same charge, where for
twentystive years our people have been
worshiping in a echnol. a beautiful new
church, valued al $1,SOO, was dedicated
free from debt. To Brother Peregoy,
tbe pHRtor of Hampton charge, is largely
due the success ot both these church en
terprises. Brother Peregoy believes in
the pernev trance of the saints and has
shown his faitb by his works. By pa
tient and liersevering toil he Anally ac
complished the desire of bis heart.
At Rock Island the foundation for a
new and beautiful new stone church
building has been completed, the corner
stone being laid with appropriate cere
monies Set tember 23 by Bishop Ninde.
When com leted the church will cohI not
less than f ::0.000, and will be the hand
somest chuveb building, outside and in
side, thai I have seen within the bounds
of our conference. j
Presiding Elder Head arrived home
from Dales urg last evening, and this
morning left for Iowa City on church
j matters. During the forenoon a telegram
came to bin that he had been reappoint
ed presidinc elder of the Rck Island dis
trict for the ensuing year.
A Mlawins; Knlfht.
The K. tf P. lodge, at Poplar Bluff,
Mo., is sending out circular letters asking
the bretbrei, generally to report anything
they may know of the whereabouts of a
missing knight, John J. SchaeSer, a
butcher by trade, thirty-two years of age,
Ave feet four inches tall, weight 145
pounds, blu ; eyes, dark curly bair, dark
mustache, ore dark coat and vest and
wore light pantaloons. He left Popular
Bluff ftlarct 15, with John W. Spralding
and a ten- ear-old boy. After visiting
St. Louis, Butte City, Mont., and other
western pla:e, finally about May 11, the
trio landed at Davenport, and put up at
the Lindell aouse. On Monday. May 13,
Schaeffer vent from Davenport to Mo
line, and S iradling to Rock Island, both
looking for work. When they returned
to the hotel in Davenport some time in
the evening. Scbacffer told Sprad
ling tlmt the Armour Packing
company wanted a man to go
to some town, (name unknown).
aliout tw.-nty miles from Daven
port, to wo-k in a butcher shop, and that
he (Schaeff ;r) would run over the next
morning and see about it. On tbe morn
ing of the "4th be left the hotel, osten
sibly to boi.rd tbe 5 o'clock train going
south. After Schaeffer's return from Mo
line, and Ssradling's return from Rock
Island, he (Schaeffer) told Spradling that
he bad met. a man that day who be bad
once worked with, and for this or some
other reasi n unknown, Schaeffer seemed
to be somewhat agitated. Since the
Tuesday n orning he left the hotel in
Davenport, Schaeffer has not been seen
or heard ol by bis friends, lie ieft his
baggage at the hotel with Spradling and
tbe little 1 oy, and after remaining over a
week witLout news of Schaeffer, Sprad
ling retun.ed to Poplar Bluff. Tbe mis
sing man bad about $250 when he reached
Davenport, and whether be has been
robbed and murdered, or bas disappeared
voluntarily, can only be conjectured.

A VERY HAD HOY.
Thr Voath wu 'aad the Troablr In
One of Oar Koek lland MrhoolN
The result of Supt. Kemble's investi
gation of the trouble in one of the school
buildings yesterday was to show that tbe
principal, in dealing with a very bad and
unruly boy, had shaken him in suih a
manner that he fell from the seat and
struck his bead on) the basehoard, in
Dieting a scalp wound, which amounted
to little more than a scratch. From
what could be learned the principal was
in no light censurable. This morning
the boy, who lives very near the build
ing, attempted to create a disturbance
among the other children of tbe build
ing, and it was thought neces
sary at one time to telephone the
police station, but meanwhile a member
of the board of education who has con
siderable influence over tbe boy and bis
parents, happening to be in that part of
town, saw the boy's deviltry and gave him
a talking to that he will not soon forget.
Supt. Eemble expresses much regret
that so much should have been made of
so little and says there was nothing in
tbe affair to create the least excitement
or to show that the boy was abused in
any particular. Fie does not expect any
further trouble in the school.
Mike Smith, a character who has for a
long time been about the Union hotel on
Twentieth street, having evinced symp

Joseph Kirby, claiming to be from Kan

evening's Arous that I had been arrested
and fined for assaulting Mrs. Mathias

honestly aay ber charges are not true, but
tbe trouble was about tbe saloon keeper
