tered tuit in tbe circuit court tbia morn
ing for $10,000 damages iigatnst the
morning Union for libel. Ci ruit Clerk
Gamble Issued a summona aid placed it
in Sheriff Silvia hands for set me.
The ground of tbe auit ia the extended
and abusive article appealing in last
Wednesday's Union beaded "Tbe Mc
Eniry cheek." and which treats of the al
lowance by the council or a till for 500
for legal services on the part of Mr. Mc
Eniry outside of bis duties as city attor
ney and during tbe period of bis incum
bency of the offloe of city attorney. Tbe
chief assertions made by the Union
to which Mr. McEniry takes exception is
of "betraying tbe city's interests." in dis
missing lbs esses against the revolting
butchers in connection with the
abattoir, sod pending la the Henry
county court. Mr. McEairy further
considers that his character is outraged
by tbe Union'$ intimaticn that be
would prefer the bill be settled ac
cording to Judge Glenn's ideas than
Judge Smith's, an accusatic n, which, by
tbe way. casts as severe and entirely un
just rtttectlon upon Judgr Glenn, as it
does oj Mr.McEnlry. There ire'numerous
other charges contained io the Union'
article, which Mr. McEniry does not cite
separately. but which he spetksof in gen
erl terms as of a nature wholly unjus
tifiable, and warranting darmges.
Without entering in the least into the
controversy which is at the bottom of the
present suit, it is no more loan candid to
.ale that the Union has seemed to take
particular delight in abusiig Mr. McEds
iry ever since he became city attorney;
nor has it confined It attacka to tbe nas
ture of purely political Indulgence, but
baa taken seeming pleasi re in giving
space to personalities, si inderous and
Mr. McEniry has not made it a point to
express his displeasure witti any assaults
that have been made duriig the beat of
political passion, though the Union has
made many that were not only cowardly
and out of place, but wholly without
foundation, but be does ieel that when
his manhood,. his person il character is
attacked, he has bnt one proper redress in
tbe maintenance of bis a-lf-rrspcct and
that is to seek the pro ection of tie
courts. This he has done
The Lnion which issoclaracterislically
and proverbially weak mcuthed about its
advocacy of anything in a line of public
improvements, such as pr moling fire de
partment efficiency and ot jer measures of
ftjual importance which are likely to
meet with opposition, lias carried its
vindictive policy toward Mr. McEoiry
to an extreme that is as audacious in its
tendency as it is inconsistent with its
course toward matters where pluck and
bravery should be displajed.
Tks "SUlver In "
Tonight at Harper's tbi atre will be pro
duced the great spectacular drama, "The
Silver King," which is al early an estab
lished favorite with tbe theatre going and
other people of Rock Islaid. The play
has the justly deserv. d reputation of
ieing as good as a sermrn. Tbe Brook
lyn J-.'ag'e says:
The Brooklyn theatre was crowded last
evening. Tbe "Silver King" company
opened a week's engager lent there yt s'er-
day and gave an eicfcll. nt performance
of tbe pretty melodrama. The "Silver
King" is such a well k lown ulav that
a description of it woul 1 be suiieifiuons.
It is tbe play of all others of its class,
where tbe story told is dear and concise.
tbe plot consistent and simple, and tbe
scenery grand. As " rVilfred Denver,"
Mr. Marlande Clarke nude quite a hit at
tbe Brooklyn. He is an actor of easy
power and grace, not loud nor blus
tering in tbe heavy I nes. but has the
happy faculty of stepp ng right into fa
vor as soon as he mak s his appearance
on the stage. Miss .ilillie blnOord as
Nellie Denver," divided tbe honors of
tbe evening with Mr. Clarke. The com
pany all through, in fart, is admirably
well balanced, and tbet are no unpleas

"Olive Skinner," is i:ntitled to special
mention. Last evening she played a
double role, and pltyed it well. The
scenery carried by tbU company is suffi
cient to stock an ordinary theatre. The
arenea are superb an 1 add much to the
effect of the play. All the accessories

parade ot Odd Fellows yesterday after
noon. It waa in command f f Gen. Oreo
dorf, commander of the brigade of Illi

the sun shining brightly on their swords
and the gold on their uniforms, and with
their plumes dancing in tbe air, and ban
ners and flags floating over tbem, made

members of the grand lodge closed tbe

length. Tbe competitive drill followed.
Adjutant General Vance. Capt Gaines
Lawson, United States army, and Gen.
F. M. Frost, of Columbus, Ohio, of the
staff of tbe commtnder in-chief of the
tbe Patriarchs Militant, were the judges.
The various evolutions were performed
with a decision very creditable to tbe men
engaged in tbe drill when it is taken into
consideration the iofrequency and brief
ness of their drills at home. It was very
evident tbat Grand Canton Excelsior No.
1, of Chicago, excelled their competitors.

bad made the last presentation and had
concluded a few eloquent remarks. Gen
eral Frost, of Columbus. Ohio, surprised
him by stepping forward and presenting
him with a splendid jewel cf a General
officer of the staff of the commander-in-
chief. The jewel was tbe gift of Gen.
OrendorfJ's staff and showed very thought
ful consideration and esteem for their

o'clock yesterday morning in the repre

the unwritten work of the order. There

ERB HAS THE CUP.
A tfttabhoraly roaaht Battle,
aa Exreedlaa-ly Narrow
Over Badd at Davenport.
Tbe shoot for the American Field wing
shot champion cup of tbe United States.
between C. W. Budd. of Des Moinea,
and Fred Erb, of Lafayette, Ind., took
place at the grounds of the Forest Gun
club at Davenport yesterday, and was
witnessed by about three hundred per
sona, many attending from this city. Tbe
official scorer was George Ferral; S. A,
Tucker was referee. Tbe judges were.
for Erb, Dr. Davis, of Lafayette; for
Budd. R. B. Organ, of Chicago. Among
those in attendance outside the city, were,
C. P. Richards, editor of tbe American
Field; Mr. Whitfield, of tbe Kansas City
Referee; C F. Cahoon, Freeport, 111.;
Dr. Ady, West Liberty; J. Davis, Musca
tine; John Smith, of Audobon.
Eib won tbe trophy, by the narrow
margin of 43 to 42, and the Democrat-
OatetU says of the contest in general:
Aside from Budd's last lost bird there
was not a wild shot. A tougher lot of
pigeons never left tbe trap. They were
far above the average. Birds have been
seen upon rare occasions that flew better
a little but there never was a lot that
died harder. Budd lost eight and Erb
seven bints. Out of these fifteen three
were killed out ot bounds, so that only
twelve escaped the park. Of thebe twelve
as stated above, one went away un
ruffled. Every one of the othera went
away badly demoralized, some of them
mortally wounded, but bound to wing it
as fur as tbey could. Tbey flew wicked
ly enough. Tbey came out of the trap
in all kinds of shapes, but the thot aN
ways caught them before they went far.
Budd downed a number of difficult in
comers and right-quarterers, which
seemed to fall to his lot in unusual num
bers, snd Erb made a number of remarka
ble clean kills at tbe trap, before the bird
had fairly had time to get off tbe ground.
Budd used his second bairel on a number
of birds tbat seemed safely sent to grass,
but be did it as a precautionary measure.
Long experience bad Uught him how
prone the dead pigeon is to come to life
and fly away after being considered safe.
Mr. Erb made a number of great shots
with his second barrel. He seemed
slightly more nervous than Mr. Budd and
died more quickly. In consequence of
this he failed to kill with bis first sev
eral tiroes, but in a large proportion
of instances he ran up the score
with his second, and those shots
were some of them remarkably clean
kill. Several of bis lost birds got away
by climbing right up in tbe air, his shots
seeming, in Iho-e cases, to pass beneath
them. Budd, on the other hand, whs
evidently shooting behind his quarters,
so that tbey caught only the edge ot tbe
load in several instances.
Tbe trophy for which the match was
shot is a beautiful solid silver cup vnlued
at $350. Two years of unbroken holding
aeainst all comers entitles to possession;
condition tbat will keep it wandering up
and down tbe earth for a good many
years before it finds a resting place. It
now reposes in the safety deposit vaults
of a bank in Des Moines, but will be
turned over to Mr. Erb by Mr. Budd,
upon the rder of Dr. Rowe of the
American Field Dr. Rowe and his
friends left for Chicago last evening and
Mr. Bund went to Des Moinea. and Mr.
Erb and Mr. Davis will go home this
morning. Mr. Budd will not issue a
challenge to Mr. Erb for some time, but
may do so in tbe future. He is soon to
leave with a party on a special car for an
extended tour of the west and south, and
ill not be in Iowa or able to shoot Mr.
Erb for half a year at least."

for tliis city, atid there met a member of bis
congregation, a lady well known in social
circli's bore. The lad; bad a valise and
small package wbch rested on tha Boor of
the waiting room. Beside tbem were eeveraJ
small crocks of preserve. As the train came
in the gallant di vine took tba valise and pack
ago aud preserves and placed tbem in tha
avat be had found for the lady, and then oc
cupied the seat in front. At one of the sta
tions an ageut came in and displayed a dis
patch notifying hitn l hat tha preserves bad
been stok-n and the thief was on board the
train. The reverend gentleman waa natu
rally much confused, lie explained that ba
thought tbey belonged to the lady, while she

was considerable laughing on board the train
when the facts became known. The rever
