Tbe drama, as its name indicates, is or

Mr. McCarthy sings and dances beautU

THE BOCK ISLAND
8AD AND TERRIBLE.
Aa Asreal Weaaaa Killed ajr the Cava
Kaarfal AreMnt atMeltae Maiar-
Mrs. Urika Westman, a widow lady
residing at 527 Thirteenth street, Moline,
was ran over and killed cn tbe C, B. &
Q. tracks and at the Fifteenth street
crossing in Moline shortly after 5 o'clcck
Saturday evening. Tbe woman, it ap
pears, was attempting to cross the tracks
and was struck by a freight car which
was being switched down Into the yards
alone, and dragged sixty feet and shock
ingly mutilated. A flagman not twenty-.
five feet away exerted himself desperately
to warn the poor woman of her danger,
but she did not see him, the sad calamity
serving as a strong endorsement of the
argument so frequently advanced by tbe
Altai's that gates are tbe only absolute
preventive of accidents at railway cros
sings where trains frequently pass. The
only actual witness to the awful fatality
in question was Dr. W. K. Sloan wbo
was driving home from his office and nar
rowly escaped himself, as he bad crossed
several tracks and the car was well upon
bim before be saw it. Tbe gates would
have prevented tbe doctor from getting
into the way of danger aa he did.
Coroner Hawes went to Moline yester
day and held an inquest at the police ata
tion, summoning as a jury, J. B. Oak-
leaf. E. J. Baldwin. B. B. Cowtler, Ed.
Kittleson. Myron Jordan and O. O.
Tbe testimony showed that tbe woman
was a sewing woman and had been down
town to see a tailor for whom she did
piece work, and had no relatives in Mo
line, though she bad lived in Moline for
twenty years. Sbe had a son. Axel, in
Chicago, and a daughter, Anna, who
teaches in an academy in Nebraska. Sbe
bsd attempted to cross in front of tbe car
and it being then dusky apparently did
not see the car which struck and killed
ber. Tbe car was what is known as a
"flying car," being detached from tbe en
gine, and bad been switched down by
locomotive 351, L. V. Adams, engineer.
There wss a brakeman on the car with a
lantern, and tbe switchman, Wm. Hurley,
nsed a lantern for a signal. Yardmaster
Hardy Better, and his helper, John .
Albrecbt, were in charge of the switch
Tbe remains were taken to tbe police
station, where they were found to be ter
ribly mutilated. There was a cut on tbe
forehead, while tbe cbest and abdomen
were crushed, the right arm being en
tirely severed. The body was identified
by S. J. Johnson, in whose bouse tbe
woman was a tenant, and wbo tes
tified that sbe was about fifty years of
age, and very poor.
The verdict of the jury was tbat "Mr.
Ulrika Westman came to ber death by
being run over by box car 878, or the C,
B. fc Q. railroad, on tbe Fifteenth street
crossing in tbe city of Moline, in said
county, on the 23d of November. A. D.
IX 1HK CHURCHES.
The Revival at the Klrwt Haatlwt
Vewlerdaj ' Seraaaaa
The revival at the First Baptist church
continues lo deepen in Interest. Last
eveniog a full bouse greeted the leaders
and the most serious attention was given
all through tbe service which lasted until
nine o'clock, when the principal part of
the congregation was dismissed, about a
hundred remaining to an after meeting.
The inquiry meeting was very informal
in its conduct and christian men and
women could be seen in different parts of
tbe bouse talking and praying with ins
quirers. After a second dismission a
goodly number still remained and it was
not till almost half past ten that the
workers and some inquirers left tbe room
and tbe lights were turned off.
The sermon by Rev. Oilman Parker was
very plain and powerful. He developed
in a logical and effective manner the
ideas that man is a three-fold being
physical, intellectual and spiritual and
that tbe Divine being had provided for
the satisfaction of tbe needs of all parts
of cur nature. Ue showed conclusively
that tbe wants or one part or our being
cannot, could not be satisfied witb tbat
which was provided for the other part,
and that the only satisfactory portion for
the spiritual man is Christ, the
bread of life. A most profound
Impression was created toward
the close of tbe sermon by the narration
of a circumstance which occurred at the
rail of the Pemberton mills. In the
midst of this narration Rev. Mr. Leland,
wbo was sitting at tbe organ, sang two
stanzas of "I'm Ooing Home to Die No
More." During the aioging many were
moved to tears.
During tbe first half hour or the ser
vice the choir of about thirty voices led
by the pastor, sang several stirring selec
tions, tbe congregation joining. This
witb opening anthem and a solo by Mr.
Leland entitled "Jesus Saves." constitut
ed a very interesting aong service. The
meetings continue every evening except
Saturday, witb song service at 7:80, ser
mon at 8 and inquiry meeting at the
close of tbe sermon. Tbe subject of tbe
sermon this evening will lie "S ml Sav
ing." At the Central Presbyterian church
yesterday morning. Rev. A. B. Meldrum
preached a strong sermon on "The Ef
fect or Rejecting the Oospel." the theory
of tbe preacher being tbat the idolatry of
the heathens, if sincere, was more accept
able lo the sight of Ood tban the ignor
ance of the scriptures shown among many
professing christians, Mr. Meldrum hold
ing tbat all would alike be judged by bow
they made use of their opportunities for
enlightenment on God's word.
Rev. O. W. Oue preached one of his
best sermons last evening on tbe subject
of "Capital and Labor."

! THE HENNEPIN'S HISTORY. I
Interesting Talk With One of the
CwaareaajBsaa T. J. Meatereaa aatl
What He Haa teSay eftae Meaaare
Aa Eatertalalas latervlew.
Mr. B. F. TillinghaBt. managing editor
of the Davenport Democrat- OntetU, spent
a day with Congressman T. J. Hecder
son, who is described as the father of tbe
Hennepin canal project, at the general's
home at Princeton, and in the correspon
dence which results tbe following sp
Tbe "earliest" advocates or Hennepin
waterway are strangely numerous. Many
ui mem are oeaa, nut more or them alive.
All but one should blush when the truth
is told as it is here for the first time in a
daily newspaper. Six years ago Oen.
uenaerson was Invited, among other men
prominent in public life, to join Henry
Villard's Northern Pacific excursion
across tbe continent. At Seattle a crowd
of ten thousand persons gathered to hear
the oratory. Just before the general
spoke a stranger gave him a bit of lapcr
with pencil scratches upon it. There
and then was Hennepin proclaimed be-
iore its original Adam. Deciphering the
marks tbe note read:
I am tbe first one that originated tha
idea of the Hennepin canal in 1834.
ept. 15, 1883. Jacob Oatlob.
A short time afterward. Mr. Oavlor.
since deceased, wrote a letter to Oen.
Henderson. He said that be cama to
Illinois in 1884 from Ohio, where he
worked on a canal. Naturally enough be
saw the opportunity nature bad pointed
out for man's benefit. A canal from
Hennepin to Rock Island took tangible
form in his mind. Mr. Oaylor went over
tbe ground on foot and satisfied himself
tbat bis plan was feasible. Returning
to Putnam be unfolded tbe project to bis
older bratber, and tbe two tiaylors went
over tbe country together. Tbey called
on Dr. Langworthy and others, all of
whom became interested. Hand bills
were circulated, a public meeting was
held, and among others who tben advo
cated tbe building or tbe Hennepin canal
wss Dr. Langworthy. Wm. Durley.now
living at Hennepin, remembers being
present at this meeting fifty five years
ago. Oaylor. be says, bad some practi-.
cal ideas, and these views have been con
firmed by surveys since. Before he died
be saw that the Rock river route would
be better tban his own, which terminated
at Watertown. He proposed to teed the
canal by reservoirs on Green river.
t rom this starting point tbe Hennepin
canal has become, through long years of
earnest agitation, a national protect to
laciiitate the commerce of tbe country.
It is interstate in every sense and local in
none. The wrangling over terminal
points that has weighted down the meas
ure and defeated favorable legislation In
congress is a disgrace peculiar to men of
narrow views a ho look to nothing beyond
personal gain. In future work this
curse ought to be lifted, and a broad.
liberal view maintained. Tbe nation
needs tbe canal, but it does not care for
Davenport, Rock Island, Moline. Water-
town, Fulton or points below or above
tbetn. Oen. Henderson is free to aav
that he has been crippled bv conflicting
claimants more tban be has been helped.
tie Knows bow to meet opposition at
Washington if tbe line of support is kept
solid behind bin:.
Everyoodv knows that surveys and
estimates have been made over and over
again by private parties and by the gov
ernment. All possible information as to
pinna, cost and routes is easily available.
The secretary of war has recommended
what is known as the Rock river route,
not in the interest of any locality but be
cause, after considering all the evidence,
that is the most practicable. The last
congress authorized the appointment of a
commission to finally settle details and
until their report is submitted all move
ments must he mails in tbe dark. Gen.
Henderson admits that about all "de
pends upon these reports as to wbat we
may or can do." He has no plan of op
erations in view. A section of the last
river and harbor bill designated a com
mission lo look after the Chicago end or
tbe proposed "national waterway." This
is the drainage scheme whose friends have
been multiplying of late. Tbey have be
come so strong tbat they cannot be ig
nored. Tbey want tbe canal from Hen
nepin to Lake Michigan improved in cons
nection with the Illinois river. They
will work for this first; but they also are
awaiting tbe report of tbe commission to
be submitted to the next congress. Of
course the advocates or the Chicago
drainage scheme will turn np in force and
demand priority or attention. But Oen.
Henderson will not consent to this as tbe
leader of the Hennepin enterprise. He
has given them to understand that the
friends or the Hennepin will not take
second place, but will loin forces witb
tbem and make tbe fight for tbe two pros
iects a common one. "I've no aort of
objection." Oen. Henderson says, "to
their project. I will do what I can for
It; but I will not submit to have the nen-
nepin lost sight of or take any other tban
ejual place. Tbe members from the
south ought to favor tbe joint enterprise
and I think they will. But tbe Chicago
drainage plan would Dot accommodate
tbe people of the northwest at all. In
fact it is of very little importance wilhs
out the Hennepin."
Tbe speakership race must be run tie-
fore any forecasts about coming legisla
tion can lie intelligently made. It la
charged by those who oppoae bim, tbat
Mr. lteed, tbe favorite in the field, baa in
variably opposed all bills providing ap
propriations for river and harbor im
provements. Indeed, so it is claimed,
be Is held responsible for tbe failure of
11 such measures since he became a
leader of the house. Tbis is overdrawn
as Oen. Henderson thinks, and the part
be will take is yet to be decided after a
full examination of tbe situation on tbe
ground where be will lie as these lines are
Another question is that of changing
the rules. If they remain as they are
now it may lie best to refer the Henne
pin bill to tbe committee on railways and
csnals. But of late this committee baa
bten a harrier through which Hennepin
could not get with unanimous recom
mendation. And so a clause has been at
tached to the river and barbor bill, and
appropriations for surveys and commis
sions secured in tbis way. Among those
most likely to tie at tbe bead of tbe river
and barbor committee in tbe next boue
is Oen. Henderson himself. This would
be a matter for rejoicing a token of
"It is hard to tell from tbis distance
what we can do," Oen. Henderson ob
served reflectively. "Tbe new members,
or whom there are a good many, are to
be looked after and their views learned.
Some warm friends remain among the
old congressmen, and some have been
lost." President Harrison, he thinks,
would be friendly under certain condi
tions to tbe Hennepin. He expressed
himself, though with some caution, when
in the senate. The president's position
is tbat tbe government ought to own not
only tbe western extension to tbe Mis
sissippi, but the eastern or Chicago end.
"I would like to have Iowa maintain
its interest in Hennepin," tbe general res
marked with some manifest feeling. "Sbe
bas long been at the front the best
friend among tbe states. Her governors,
legislatures and people have done much,
and they can do more. But Iowa does
not feel deeply concerned in the Illinois
river route without the Rock Island line.'
He continued: "I do not know at
present of toy single move that can be
made to tell. Keep up the agitation by
all means; don't fold your arms and be
silent; let the people of tbe country
know that this canal la demanded In the
name of commerce."

half enough," says a mother, whose son,
almost blind with scrofula, was cured by

pass ordinances to that effect.
