J. B JOHNSTON,
Prospet of a Repetition of the
Flood of '88.
Canneltfts Alarm ft the LowrrF.nil of
Town Last Xiht-The Water Is
romlDe up jnatthe same
Will Rock Island experience another
season c f extreme hitrh water?
If thc river continues to rise in the
next three diys at the rate it has in the
put thrje, that question will most assur
edly be answered is the affirmative.
The steady gains since Sunday last are
notonl indicated in the water register at
the government gua?e at Rock Island
bridge, but in'the inflow at the lower end
of the city the rising waters having
broken throueb and submerged the dist
rict about the bid abattoir and the
Farrell fertilizing works, and advanced
as far as the railroad embankment and
dike of the R. I. & P. road which served
as the only bulwark of defense to so
many homes during the flood of four
years a io.
A wi ti report spread through the city
last night that the dike along the Peoria
tracks in ibe western part of town had
broken and that the water was rushing
into th.j low land in that part of the city,
endangering property there, which caused
considc rable consternation among a good
many citizens who had no knowledee of
tbe height of the water. In a short time
after the alarm was sent out the patrol
wsgon, containing Mayor McConochie,
Chief Miller, Street SuperintendentBlais
dell an 1 a half dozen policemen, and pro
vided with shovels and as many sacks as
could t e secured in a hurry, was on the
scene. Representatives of the press and
a large lumber of citizens had hurried
there also, and in a few minutes a large
force o f men was at work. It was found that
danger of the embankment giving away
had been greatly magnified. The spot
where the water was coming through was
at the extreme end of the lumber yards
where a stone culvert passes under the
railroad embankment. A flood gate that
should have been in the mouth of the cul
vert w-s out of place, and this was first
adjusted, after which a large number of
the sacks that had been brought down
were filed with sand and thrown into the
water in front of the flood gate thus pre
vettirg the water from backing up into
tbe slough back of tbe tracks. Train
Dispa cher Greecough, of theR. I. & P.,
was a' so on hand and had a couple of
cars of sand switched in which wire also
unloaded at that point, making it compara
tively safe. The company's tracks are
in got d shape and no serious damage will
probtb'y occur in that vicinity unless the
water should raise high .enough to flow
over 'he tracks which would require a
raise of several feet.
In 'he city generally the advance has
not occasioned any serious inconvenience
as ve . The stage of the water at noon
today was 13 30 and has been gradually
rising ail day . The high water of 18SS,
when the stage reached its maximum
mnik, was IS C, which was two-tenths of
a foot higher than it was when it reached
its htighth in 1S30.
The lower end pumping apparatus is
in constant operation and is keeping the
8ewes from backing up, preventing inun
dation of the lower part of the city.

Manager Sage this morning receiyed a
telegram from Barney McLaughlin, of
Lowell, Mass., who signed for second
baseman, received his advance money and
then failed to report, and who was black
listed by the local team stating that be
was sick acd in trouble, and asking that
if he wired back his $50 advance money
would he be given his release. Manager
Sage replied that he would place the mat
ter before the league, a two -thirds vote
of which is required to reinstate a black
listed player. Manager Sage has no use
for McLaughlin now as he has a better
man in O Day, but he has no desire to
pursue hirn as long as he is in trouble,
and is anxious to act fairly. The ma
agement is only desirous of protecting
itself, and as long as players behave them
selves, will be treated right, but no trifl
ing should be tolerated. The best thing
that can be done now of course, is to re
cover McLiughlin'a advance money and
let him go that will be done if the league
Mackey was out having a time again
last night, and also boasting that he
would desert the team at the first oppor

because he wants it. Manager Sage
ought to suspi-nd him and send him home
until he cornea to his senses, and if neces

Manager Sage, with the approval of the
club, this rooming made First Baseman

amply qualified to fill, and he will enter
upon his duties at once, thus relieving
Manager Sage of a part of his duties, but

A Frivol on Exrnne.
If there is any man who delights to ex
hibit his natural instincts and become a
smart alerk more than the Rock Island
postmaster, he has not come under the
observation of the majority of people in
Rock Island. When The Argus of last
evening made a statement of the delays
noted between tbe mailing and delivery
of letters in Rock Island, the post
master sent hot haste, so he says, to The
Argus to find the cause of thc complaint.
Supt. of Carriers Koenigsaecker, who made
tbe inquiry, however, stated that he bad
come voluntarily to seek the information
and the facts surrounding the complaint
appearing in Toe Argus were freely
communicated to Mr. Koenigsaecker. But
it appears in this morning's Union that
the information was only sought to give
tbe late boss something to talk about in
a newspaper, and not as a means of
remedying the service. And so after saying
that he had been provided with all that
he sought as to the com plaint, and after
giving no explanation whatever of the
difficulty. Mr. Wells says: "I only write
this to place the postofflce as well as Tiie
Argus office right before the public." As
far as The Argus is concerned it is very
much obliged to Mr. Wells for his consid
eration, although it cannot see where his
explanation is satisfactory. As regards
the postofflce and how his explana tion
will be received, of courss The Argus is
not in a position to know. It may add,
however, that if Mr. Wells will send one of
bis hirelings around again or permit him
to come voluntarily The Argus will fur
nish him some more pointers about weak
ness in his service in the matter of de
linquent delivery of letters and give him
something more to talk about in bis
The letter in question by the way
which Mr. Well 8 hastens to say "was
probably taken out of the box at 3:30
May 31. and postmarked 7 a. m." not
withstanding that it was mailed before
7 o'clock May 30 as a matter of fact
bears the postmark of the Rock Island
office May 30, 11:80 a. m., 1892, and
accordingly must have been taken from
the box tbe last time preceding that
tbe box was robbed, or at 7 a. m., which
amply verifies what appeared in last
night's Argus, and places the blame
nowhere else than in Mr. Wells' post
offlce. As said before when Mr. Wells
gets through looking into this matter if
he will send around he may have some
thing additional to think about and write
