in this city, and, sifter having a little

Assist mt General Manager Allen,
of the H ck Island road, telegraphed
to the Davenport dispatcher's otlice
yesterday to have Observer Walz
send hiri a report of the condition of
the at nosphere of this vicin
ity this morning. Jewell stopped
his ga I blowing operations at
Muscatine island tit 7:lo a.
m. today, and Mr. Allen wanted
to knt iv what shape ithe air is
left in It hadn't rained yet,
but Mr. Walz stated yes
terday that there a slight
probability of such a phenome
non haj pening. Mr. Walz couldn't
find Mr. Jewell's trade mark on tin
indications anywhere. Mr. Jewell
says that if he "fails it will be his first
failure to cause rain this season in a
live das' trial and will lay his fail
ure to the low attitude of the island,
which is 000 feet lower than any
point h has ever operated at.
This morning gate he up the un
dertaking as a bad job. At
noon t day it was reported perfectly
clear at Muscatine, though the best
signs of rain were visible here that
have manifested themselves for some
time, in fact a gentle shower falling
shortly after dil.ner.
A Sure Slicn.
L. M rris, of Good laud, Kan., who
claims to be a rainmaker himself,
was in the city ' yesterday on his way
to Monmouth, where he expects to
maker contract for a watetfall. He
asks $M0 for eaeh success he makes
in earning precipitation, but Presid
ing Eliler Head jf the Methodist
church, made a suggestion today,
which was to the effect that before
anv money was paid out for rain the
people should wait until after camp
meelirg. which begins a week from
next Monday and which never fails to
bring rain," and that if t his year
proves no exception to the rule the
money be turned to him for the es
tablisl mcntof a Chautauqua grounds
on Big island.
The weather indications are fair
with conditions favorable to local
thunder storms; continued high tem
perati re tomorrow and Saturday.
The maximum temperature today
was 94, as high as it has been this
lanileaon Muxt Hang.
Gov. Altgeld has refused to grant
a reprieve in the case of William J.
Jamieson, the negro doctor who mur

Quincv, and Jamieson will die on the

Friday Aug. 18. Col. W. W. Berry,
of Quincy.was present to plead for the
prisoner, and Carl E. Kpler repre
sented the state. The case was
taken to the appellate court on a
writ or error, but as that court does
not n eet tmtil October a reprieve
would have been necessary in order
to have them hear the case. The in
sanitv plea was put forth.
ABANDONED HER BABE.
Mra.' Lowea' Inhumanity to an Infant
Last Tuesday a woman about 22
years old, well dressed and apparent
ly well-to-do arrived in the city and
secured- board and lodging at the
residence of George Koenigsaecker,
2736 Fifth avenue. She gave her
name as Mrs. Lowes, stating-that she
had come from Milwaukee, where her
husband was employed in a glass j
iactory. She was accompanied by a
3-months-old bov, which she said was
her son. Last night she abandoned .
the child and disappeared. This was '
between 10 and 11 o'clock, and about J
that time she was seen at the Hock
Island depot in company with a
stranger of the opposite sex, who
purchased two tickets for Chicago. j
Claimed to Have Acquaintance in Savann i.
Yesterday in conversation at Mr.
Koenigsaecker's house, the woman
saiil she had a friend in Savanna by
the name of Mrs. Cook, and also two
brothers there, and intimated that
she proposed paying a visit to that
city. She seemed to have plenty of
money, was well appearing and neat
ly dressed, wearing a jrrav dress with
white waist, anil whitejhat trimmed
with blue ribbon and white feather.
She was of medium stature, dark
complected, and had dark hair. The
police have been furnished this de
scription of her, and Chief Sexton is
endeavoring to locate her.
The child she has cruelly aban
doned is at Mr. Koenigsaecker's
house, and the family is naturally
desirous that some disposition be
made of it. It will proh&hlv be
turned over to the care of theKdtiea
tional Relief society if the woman
does not return.

A alinipMC of the Out-of-Innr Living Along
The campers on VandrufT's island

all appearances they are. The camps
are many, and various are the names

Miss Laura, Jim Wright and Olof
Hanson, as its occupants.
Camp Comfort" is exactly what
its name indicates, and is composed
of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Lloyd and
son, Elwood. Annie Shields and
Maggie Gaetjer. This camp includes
the champion lady swimmer of the
island, so they say.
Uiverside camp" is the name giv

Tha State Hoard Meet at Springfield and
The .state board of equalization
met Tuesday, a Springfield, in annual
session. The board is composed of
21 members, including Auditor Gore,
who is a member by virtue of his
office. Eleven "of the members are
republicans, including M. 'M. Stur
geon of this city, the representative
for the Eleventh congressional dis
trict. Auditor Gore was elected
chainnan; W. II. Eubanks, of Spring
field, secretary, and Elijah Jones, of
Springfield, doorkeeper. Mr. Eu
banks was chief clerk under Auditor
Pavey. and Mr. Jones was for several
years janitor of the state board of
health office. The standing com
mittees as announced by Chairman
Gore places Mr. Sturgeon on the com
mittee on town and city lots.
The auditor announced that he had
received information from Chicago
that the Cook county returns would
not be ready before the 20th or 25th
of the month. Pending their arrival
the board adjourned to meet Aug. 22,
and Mr. Sturgeon reached home
The Governor Will Not Act.
Gov. Altgeld will make no appoint
ments to make up the requisite num
ber of one from each congressional
district under the new apportion
ment. Attorney General Moloney
gave an opinion that there Were two
vacancies existing in the board, but
he is unable to determine where
they are. The members of the board
of equalization were elected at the
general election last fall, and the ap
portionment bill was passed last
spring. There has been no election
since then, and the governor will
make no appointments, as the law
provides that the board shall be com
posed of members, one to be elected
from each congressional district. It
is evident from this that the new ap
portionment cannot operate until the
next election. Judge Lyman Trum
bull, of Chicago, gave a lengthy
opiuion to the governor at the lat
ter's request, and Gov. Altgeld
speaking to a State Register reporter,
"The opinion of Judge Trumbull
agrees with that of the attorney gen
eral of the state, that there is no va
cancy as to 20 of the members of the
board; that is, that all of the mem
bers who were elected at the last
general election are still members of
the board without regard to the
question as to whether either the
boundaries or the number of theirdis
tricts have been changed. There is
a difference of opinion as to whether
two members could be added for the
two congressional districts that are
in existence now, and were not in
existance at the last election. Judge
Trumbull holds that it cannot be
done, while the attorney general is
of the opinion that there is a vacan
cy, but he does not state in the opin
ion which he rendered where this va
cancy is, and in consultation with
him he says that some serious ques
tions might again rise in determin
ing where to locate two more mem
bers if we were to appoint them.
Inasmuch as there is no doubt about
the legality of the board as it is now
constituted, and as we might get
into serious complications if we at
tempt to add any members to the
board at present, I have decided not
to do so."
Judge Trumbull in his opinion
gives first the law governing the
election of the members of the board
of equalization, and says section 125
of chapter 46, entitled elections, de
clares among other causes, that an
elective office shall become vacant
on the incumbent's "ceasing to be
an inhabitant oT the state; or, if the
office is local, his ceasing to be an
inhabitant of the district, county,
tewn or precinct for which he is
