REV. REED'S SIDE.
The Former Moline Pastor Tells
He Attribute the Late HenMtiea
frith WMeb. Hi, sua, was Cob.
Rev. J.H. C. Reed, late of Grand Island,
Neb., is in Moline, and when seen by a
Republican reporter yesterday morning
M to the recent sensation with which his
name has been associated, and asked ifjhe
had not taken the matter cimly, he said:"
Took it canal j f Well, yes 1 did.
though I admit I am surprised at my
self. Some people would probably have
got mad and gone on the war path, but
you know that never pays, no matter
how mad a man may feel. There might be
some satisfaction in meeting the slanderer
face to face with a hlacksnake, and still
that wouldn't help your case. . Public
sympathy is generally so much on the
Bide of the innocent person whose charac
ter is atsailed that slander, generally
works its own revenge."
"Who do you think started the elope
ment story, Mr. Read?" asked the Repub
"Those maturs are pretty hard to sif t
but as near as I could Aid out a h alf
fitted hotel clerk was at the bottom of it,
and the imaginative reporter got the few
tips he needed from him. That is as
near as I could come to locating it when
I returned to Grand Island."
"When did you first bear of the sensation?-'
You see, Miss Zjdiker and myself
boarded tbe morning train at G.-and Isl
and, she to go to Franklin, her form er
home, on a visit to friends, while I had
purchased a ticket to Emerson, la.,
where I expected to join my wife. Just
before the train reached Hastings the
news agent r.ame through and by mere
chance I bought a Bee. Tne second ar -tide
my eye lighted on was the one with
sensations! headlines, relatingthe story of
"What does Miss Zediker propose to do
"Ob, I haven't seen her. I understand
she didn't hear of it until tbe Bee came to
hand in Franklin tbe next day while
among friends there."
Mr. Reed says the story has been very
thoroughly retracted by all the papers
west of the Missouri, and pretty generally
east He stopped at Emerson, Iowa,
where Mrs. Reed is visiting, and found
that she wocld be detained in Emerson
for some days on aceount of a severe in
jury received by their little boy. Mr.
Reed has not yet decided whether to locate
In Moline or in Rock Island In partner
ship with Mr. Zediker.

Keeftrdlas Early dailnc
We notice a card from Joseph & Levin
sky, calling themselves "The London
Clothing Co," stating that they were com
pelled to again keep open eyenings and
that while they kept closed, others slyly
"worked in trade." This is the second
attack on the integrity of Rock Island'6
clothing firms. The first, where they
attributed tbe defacing of a few sign
boards to jealous competitors. As
muuu lueir t'jLupeuiurB ii au anyming
to be jealous about. None of the firms
thought the low insinuations worth
their notice. But when these wind
bags come again and try acd lay the
blame of their own diings on some of
their competitors, we for one object. We
don't believe there is a firm in the ci'y
who would go back on the:r agreement,
and unless Messrs. Joseph &
Levinsky can name tbe par
ties they refer to their card must
be accepted as an unscrupulous black

Thursday night in "Leah, tae Forsaken."
As applying to a star whose art is as
well known, as Miss Mather's, words of
commendation would be superfluous.
It is only necessary to announce that
she will appear next Thursday night at
Harper's theatre, and that tbe sale of re
