It was not Christmas weather; there
was the atonce of enow. ! tbe meteor,
otogical associations wo ch have existed
from the first dtys of S ta Claos. but it
was Christmas in all its cred and hap
py observances. Iq Roct Islaad the day
was ushered in with m dnight services
and celebration at Trin ty church, the
rector. Rev. R. F. Sweet, acting as cele
brant, assisted by R;v Hewitt, of Mo
line. At 5 o'clock there was early
mass at St. Joseph's church, with Father
Mackin as celebrmt. There were also
masses at 8 and 10.30. A t Trinity in the
morning there were s -rvic.-s at 10:30. the
music at that hour being particularly im
pressive, the te denra and an anthem be
ins beautifully rendered.
Rock Island had man;? happy homes

little folks from the time they first cautrbt
a glimpse of the well filled stocking in
the morning, until their jes bebtld tie

Christmas tree at nisjht. There were
joyous home gatherings and reunions, and
words of cheer and good will were heard
on every side.
At the Central Presbyterian church
yesterday morning the li tie folks were
made happy by a generous distribution of
nuts and confecliorery. Bid at the South
Rock Island chapel on Aisen street, the
previous evening, a dt-lietitful entertiin
ment was given representing a Christmas
scene, which was highly appreciated by
the lare number present.
Miss Agnes Bixby, the organist at the
Central cbunh, was presented with a
handsome upholstered patent rocker as
a token of their kind appreciation of her
willingness and talent. Tbe present was
doubly appreciated by tin young lady
owing to the fact that it was also htr
birthday, and it is a'so indicative ef the
high esteem in which Miss Bixby is hc!d
by members of that church .
A very in erestbg entertainment was
given at the First Baptist church on
Curitmas eve. The programme cons sted
of a number of wetl rende-ed songs and
recitations. A beautiful character repre
sentation of-Sinta Clam' Workshop"
was also given, in which a large number
of the young people took part, after
which the lit'.le folks were remembered
by a bountiful distribution of presents,
and en's, candies, etc.
At the Ninth street M. E. church on
ChristmaB eve a very int .-resting enter
tainment was given, conMstipg of a re
presentation of Christ in tl.e maDger by
10 little girls dressed in a proptin'e cos

of worship of the different nations. A
Christmas tree was also provided, and
tbe little ones presented wi.h large num

At the Broadway Presbyieriau church

concerning work in tbe pool
Tbe work cn tie cbtncel in tbe pool
so far as the present appropriation will
carry it, is nearly finished . Unless an
additional appropriation shall be secured
at once tbe coffer-dam will be removed
and the waters of the Mississippi will be
turned into the channel.
When the appropriation of $101,000
was made by tbe last congress it was ex
pected that that money would increase
tbe width of the channel in the pool
about 50 feet. The work already done
b-ni made a channel 150 feet wide to near
the head of the isiand, and 125 feet wide
for the remainder of tbe 400 feet in
length that was to re excavated.
The work was commenced as early in
the spricg as was practirable. by the
building of the coffer-dam. This was
rotdetx'-a strong, but the wisdom of
this has been demonstrated in that it has
not broken at any lime. Tbe season has
beca favorable for this, as the river has
been low, so that it has not hd to wiat

the ct ffer-dams here, but it is telieved
that it it would have withstood any of
Tbe work has proere9 d raptdlv all
summer. Tracks were laid so that tbe
stone and dirt could be taken on tbem to
the dumping place in trains of five or six
ears, and in this way, the dumping was
accotr plisbed more rapidly and at less
expense rhan by team hauling; and elec
tric (In. ling whs used in the latter part of
the season, which aided a little while.
The favoring season has had much to do
with the rapid work.
When tbe work is finished this fall,
the channel will be finished for tbe full
400 fe-t wide, for 2.010 feet, or to the
bead of the bland. This is one-halt the
leng'h of the channel. Tbe remainder
of the 4 OOO feet of the ehinoel is 200
feet wide, having bef-n practically fin
ished two months ao.
It will be seen by this statement that
much mote work has been done than was
expected from tbe appropriation. It is
at least three times as much, showing

A Jodem-nt AealDMt the Order in the
Mail of . 51 all by Agalnat it.
A suit of great interest to members t f
the order of Modern Woodmen of Amer
ica, was settled at Omaha last week.
D. S. Maltby obtaining a verdict for
$7,500 in a suit against the order. Tbe
case is a test one, others having claims
aggregating about $G0.OOO.
For several years after tbe order began
its existance J. C. Root, of Fulton, was
tbe head and practically tbe dictator of
tbe organization. In 1334 be entered In o
a contract with D. S Maliby and O HJ
Henderson agreeing to bind tbe M dern
Woodmen of America to pay to tbe said
Maltby and Henderson each a bonus
from tbe general fund of the order in ad
dition to tbe regular compensation or
commission for each member they
brought into the order. The bonus was
to be qual to one-fifth of the entire
sum necessary to pay tbe run
ning expenses of tbe order. Un
der these contracts thousands of dollars
were paid to Ma! toy and Henderson
while Mr. Root remained at the head of
tbe order. But Root was finally deposed
about two years ago, and after consider
able litigation he finally withdrew and
started what is called Modern Woodmen
of the World, an organization almost ex
actly like tbe Modern Woodmen of Amer
ica. Tbe present board f control of the
Modern Woodmen of America declined
to pay Messrs. Maltby and Henderson
tbe money tbey claim upon tbe contract
made with tbem by Mr. Root while he
was head of the order. It is claimed by
the present management that these con
tracts were made without tbe authority
of the order, and that tbey were conceiv
ed and executed for the purpose of de
frauding the order. The Maltby case
was brought as a test case.
