The Ai gds has taade allusions for eev. eral days past to mgotiations which were pendmutiat would probably culminate in the Ki:stablkhment of the Lonilon Clothing company, the practical conclu sions arrived at being brk fly stated last night. A conference was held yesteidiy at the Ilarper between Sweeney & Walker, at torneys for the lodgement creditors. Jackson & Hurst, attorneys for the at taching creditors, and Hon. Charles Dun ham, of Ganeseo, who represented J. B. 8x. the purchacer of the stock. The conference continued al! the morniDg and until late in the afternoon when a settlp. ment was agreed upon whereby the entire Stock was sold to J. B. Sax for 24 000 that amount being immediately used in paying off the creditors who were repre sented. The following are the exct figures: Sheriff's cofto, $326.64; Sweeney & Walker, $11.304 34; and Jackson & Hurst, 13 869 12. The store will con tinue under the name of the London Clothing f tore, and will be managed by Messrs. E J.Leveen and M. C. Rice, the latter bein? from Ottumwa,Iowa,and who will ehorily become a resident of Rock Island. Mr. Sax, who enjoys the repu tation of being the most extensive cloth ing dealer in Iowa, being Urgely interest ed in that business at Ottumwa.will give the business here bis personal attention, and by increasing the stock and assort ment, will give Rook Island a store s?cond to none in the state outside of Chicago. He is a wide-Hwake progressive business man of sound judgment, and his varied expire knee acd business qualifications will make him a valuable acquisition to Rock Island business circles. Mr.. Sax has other attachments in Reck Island which will tend to make bis associations here more pie want, being a sonMnlaw of Meyer Kosenfield, and be naturally feels an ciiuual amount of interest in locating hjre. Tue work of invoicing the stock was begun this morning, and the store will probably not be thrown open to the public for a number of days, due notice of which will be given. Tue very low price at which the stock was purchased will make it possible for Mr. Sax to giva the public the benefit of the reduction, which be has signified his in tention of doing. tueoiacotps oi clerks will remain under the new proprietorship, with the ex ception of T. F. LtiVelle who has signed a contract with acotber Rock Island firm. and his mi ny friends will be pleased to learn that be will remain in the city. Theatilral. Tonight at Harper's theatre will be ere sented the great melodramatic produc tion, "777 " The Chicago Glebe says of it: A. YY. i reemont made his appearance in the drama. '777." at Havlin theatre yesterday. Both the matinee and the evening performance were well attended. The scene is laid in a Louisiana prison, ' 777 being the number of one of the prisoners. The dialect stories and skits compose a good proportion of the entire play, and in many cases the work is highly commendable. One of the finest scenes is a graphic representation of -the Ne Orleans gsmbling dens. The 'Ttail of rtkin," which is one of the brightest of all comic operas that has ever been produced on the American state within the last decade, will be given at the Buitis opera bouse, Davenport, Ibis evening. The company is composed of 40 peop e including some of tbe best talent of tie lyric stsga. No expense has been spare 1 by tbe management to give out theatre-goers a real treat both to tbe eye bnd car. The costumes are perfectly gorgeous, itnd those who may have had the nleaaute of seeing the opera in tbe past, will readily discover that new muBic, songs and duets have been added. This comoanv c irries their own orchestra as well as all Hcenery used in tbe production, which is an assurance that the opera will be presented in first class style. When seats are Disced on sale, we advise our friends to secure them early, so as to be able to have a good choice.

Laod W. re DlpMed .f at Pe.rla An End to tbe Fioeeedtas:.. The Peoria Transcript of yesterday morning contains the following with reference to the disposition of the Henne pin canal condemn ation suits in the United Stales courl : Yesterday in the United Riotu the case of the condemned lands along the proposed route of the Hennepin canal was taken up. Earlier in the term tbiB cise was expected to mean long litigation, acd it Was planned to impanel the iury here and then lake them to Rock l.land e.ud over the csnal route. But the case came to a sudden termination. After the jury had been impane.led it was announced that the entire matter had been comprom ised. There are 82 land nvnura ;nur 38ttd in tbe Droceertino-n. ni nil f thm bHd entered Into an agreement to settle wnnm.i timber litigation. All that re mained for the jury to do was to fettle tbe question of damages in some ca9es wnere u ntd not already been done. Tbe principal property hclJcrs obtain ing judgment were as follows: David PdVne. $!S9: A . Potorann P. HnioaeeJ. $493 20; Swan Johnson. fSUO; P Fries. 1.430: Vmitrnfl h-ira $46t?.50; Hhusou heirs, 812; Merritt Oob'vlt. 234; C. W. Mosbt-r, $1 844; D. B- S ara' S ns, $2 500; M. C Joiin eon, l,iS9; John Tmdall. 1.196: Han- rahN-wt.Tg. $400; M. Bochm.n, $125. There weie some 50 other small claims, nsn-e' ii -si receiving $3. and G M. Lu ken $52. while the each. It was expected that theri would be a claim of $3,000 from D. L. Cunkle for water power Improvement in front of the town of Milan, but this was dismissed, as slated in last night's Abotjs. The city of Rock Island and the town of Milan giye all the dctired right of way across certain highways, conditional on the con struction of bridgrs, and a contract of similar tenor which is subject to ratifica tion by tbe secretary of war, was taken cogoiztuce of. The condemnation of tbis right of way leaves no obstacle in the way of the exe cution of the contracts for the work. The plans and specifications are all in shape. Bids by contractors will have to be invited, contract made, opened in due form, deliberated upon, and contracts awarded. This furnishes a good deal of clerical and official work, and will occupy a considerable amount .of time. Tbe contractors cannot do anything before next spring. Frost will be in the way of work in a very short time, and there will be nothing to do but to wait. For this delay, as tbe Democrat trnly states, tbe people of Rock Island, Day cd port, and the west have to thank the untiring en ergy that left unturned no stone that could possibly be placed as a stum bling block in the path of the work. One whole season has been lost and nothing has been tangibly gained by the delay. It remains to be seen whether or not the work of obstruction will be con tinued next season MILAN.

An old German who bas been making wine in this town for many years past not long ago conceived the idea of selling tin fermented grape juice by the glass. Ac cordingly he set up a little cider press in the front of his establishment and adver tised grape juice at live cents a glass. He buys grapes by the crate and squeezes out the juice right before the eyes of his cus tomers. He pours it into glasses from a stone pitcher, and it is an uncommonly popular drink because its purity is abso lutely assured. New York Sun. An Effort to Speak.

Tbe people of Burlington, Dubuque and elsewhere who have been fighting the Hennepin canal have not been con sulting the interests of the Mississippi river or the welfare of tbe country in gen eral. 1 he attitude of the river men ia well set forth in The River, a veritable rivermen's advocate, published at St Louis. It says: With tbe influence in congress that the opening of tbe Hennepin canal would bring from Chicago and the great north west, the people could ask for double tbe appropriation now asked for acd get it. "In unity there is strength," and tbe more people we get interested in western rivers the more money we will get, and if we grt the money and haye it come stead ily for 8 or 10 years there will be more boats to be seen on my part of tbe Mis sissippi river than on tbe Hudson.
