dall Grove, four miles southeast of
Miian, in which is situated the
ground owned y the Kock Islanfl
District Camp Meeting association, is
the scene of life and activity. Pol
itic past two weeks people have be- n
moving into tin moss-covered ami
rain blackened cottages called by a
wondering linle ' three-year hl.
"barns," ami the place made b.veiv
by memories f a year ago, is the
scene of happy greetings. Kveryone
displays remarkable energy in mak
ing cozy little nests of t!ie cottages.
The old camp kettle gives way to
modern utensil-, ami the ancient' tire
of sticks is quite discountenanced bv
the blaze of a Modern gasoline stove:
and in one cot age we really saw a
beautiful nick e' lamp heater for the
possible raiin day, a pretty ingrain
carpet, and a i lirror large enough to
give the desirable full-length view.
It is .piite like playing keep house,
and the calls exchanged are entirely
informal. T icre is no dissembling,
the caller actually confesses the ob
ject ot me vis t to be a curiosity to
take an inve ltorv of the neighbor's
belongings, while there is much
boasting and display on the part , of
nosi ami hostess, ami n verv candid
avowal of all make-shifts.

about in seaich of something inter

first bv the larire board in"; tent
which by the way is no tent at all.
but another "barn" like the rest,
only very much larger, the wonder
ingly we looked at a man w ho seem
ed to be acting in the capacity of a
landlord. This man. like the "barn,"
was not entirely w hat he seemed, but
turned out to be a minister, and the
pastor of 1 1 e M. P.. church at Milan.
Still he seetned to know something
of Ihebtisiiess carried on. ami in
formed us t lat tlie Milan people who
have on hand the building of a nice
new churcii. had undertaken the
manageniei t of the boarding tent
this year hi the hope of gaining some
financial a'd for I heir enterprise.
These good people have gone at the
matter wit 1 a will, and 1; v the mem or v
of sundry church suppers we till
know what good meals church peo
ple can give. Put this is not left to
conjecture, for all the boarders with
whom we have conversed, express
themselvoas being delighted, sav
ing that there never has been such
board offei eil theie before, and so

is tinder this roof a grocery and
such a g-ocery, too! Canned goods

The preliminary examination of
Mrs. Jennie Chandler and Cal. liar
son, the pair caught in the act of plac
ing logs on the Kock Island tracks
near Riverview paik Sunday night,
was held at police headquarters this
morning before Joliee Magistrate
Sehroeder. The only witnesses call
ed were Chief Sexton ami Detective
Gray, of Chicago. Chief Sexton tes
tified that on Sunday night at about
8:3o, he was in the vicinity of the C.
II. I. & P. railway tracks at Kivcr
view park and detected the defen
dant, Harson, placing two tics on the
west hound track in a V shape, and
the woman was standing watching
him, and through motions made ly
her, concluded that she was instruct
ing Harson as the manner of placing
the ties. The chief also testified to
having heen mistaken ly Mrs. Chand
ler, for Harson and that she said to
him: "Come, put some more on the
Then Detective Gray was.callod.
and testified that. he.was in the cm.
ploy of the Thiel detective agency of
Chicago; that on the night of Sun
da. Aug.! 2rttli, he was in the vicin
ity of the C 15. I. & T. tracks at
Kivervicw park, and that he was
about So or 40 feet from the defend
ants at the time of placing the tics
and that he could hear Mrs. Chand
ler say, "Put some more on: hurn
up!'1 His testimony corroborated
that of Chief Sexton materially. On
being asked in which way the apex of
theV was pointed, he replied, 'east.'
These were the only witnesses ex
amined, and after some talk by At
torney McKniry in behalf of Mrs.
Chandler, Magistrate Sehroeder
fixed the bond 'at 2.0i.) each, and
the. prisoners were committed to the
county jail in default.

Illinois politicians are predicting
t lie appointment ot John C. Donnelly,
of Woodstock, protege of the late
Klijah M. Haines, as United States
marshal for northern Illinois.
The only formidable opposition
that developed against Donnelly's
camliilacy was by air. Cable s candr
date, ex-Sheriff Siivis of Kock Island
Senator Palmer had endorsed Mr.
Donnelly. Since returning to Wash
ington the senator has concentrated
his efforts to secure the early appoint
ment of the Woodstock statesman.
While Mr. Cable has put up a strong
fight in favor of Siivis for marshal,
he found many of his political co
workers here who were willing to in
dorse Spangler, the candidate for
revenue collector in whom Mr. Cable
has been so much interested, but
were opposed to Mr. Cable's friend
from Kock Island.
The Cook county democracy, ac
cording to advices, favor Donnellv
tor ot internal revenue. Senator
Palmer is making a personal fight
for Donnelly's appointment and,
while he has indorsed Twohigagainst
Spangler for collector of internal
revenue, the senator's principal fight
seems to lie on Oie marshalship. It
is predicted now that Mr. Cable will
have to be satisfied with the appoint
ment of Spangler for internal reve
nue collector, which now seems rea
sonably certain, and that Senator
Palmer's friend Donnelly will be mar

A Couimui.ieation Relating: to Rock River
llrldgeft, Kte.
At last night's meeting of the.
city council a communication
from Capt. Marshall, of the'
engineers' oflice' in
advising the raising of the
bridges over Kock river was read.
Capt. Marshall says that the bridges
are not as high above high water
mark as they should be, and that
they were carried out once and
might be again.
A communication was also read
from Sam DeSant acknowledging the
receipt of the map of Davenport,;
Kock Island and Moline drawn up by
M. llueh'mger. Mr. DeSant highly
compliments the work and has
placed it in a conspicuous place in
the Iowa state building at the fair.
What's the matter with the Illinois
building part of the time?
A communication was then read
from M. Hucbinger in which he
states lhat now be is prepared to
make a map for sanitary purposes
showing a complete system of sew
ers and the location of water and ga
mains together with all the data
necessary for the further improve
ment in the city, including paving,
etc. It seems that Mr. Hucbinger
made a map of the city in which he
was to do all the above, but upon in
vestigation it was found that all the
sewers were not there.
The Towers.
Aid. Fdadel made a motion, which
was unanimously carried, to do away
with the old eye-sores, namely the
electric light towers. At the time
they were ordered down before the
affa'irs of the Hrush Electric Co. were
in the hands of a receiver, but now
they are not, ami the Priish Co. has
been ordered to take them down.
Fire hi a lSrcwcry Cupnl t.
An alarm of fire was sounded at 11
o'clock this morning from box 63, lo
cated at Wagner's brewery, anil re
sponding to it the department was
given a long run. but it was made in
splendid time. The cause was the
discovery of flames in one of the cu
polas at the Atlantieibrewery and
at the corner of the porch overhang
ing the northwest corner of the
brewery building. The flames in
both instances were quickly subdued,
having been held in check by a small
hose pending the arrival of the lire
men who soon did the rest, there be
ing no occasion for using the depart
ment hose, although Assistant Chief
Collier had it laid ready for busi
ness if needed. The loss will not
exceed .5'). which is fully covered by
insurance. The fires caught prob
ably from sparks from the brewery
The alarm served to emphasize the
necessity of a company in the cast
end of town as the locality like at
the extreme western portion of the
city is too far away to expect a com
pany to reach in time for effective
service from its location in the cen
tral portion of the city.

On the 17th of September last year
Dora or Dolly Weichert, then aged
about 10 years, was struck bv a Kock
Island passenger train at the Forty-
sixtli street crossing. She was
thrown 10 or 15 feet into the air,
alighting on her head and being ren
dered unconscious but no bones were
broken, and as she soon regained
consciousness it was thought at the
time that there was no permanent
injury. The accident i recalled by'
a flO.OOO damage suit filed Saturday
in the district court across the river
by Rudolph Weichert. the girl's fa
ther, against the Kock Island railway
company. The nominal plaintiff is
the little girl whose home is still in
Rock Island. It is alleged that per
manent bodily and mental injuries
have resulted from the accident.
The accident was one of those where
two f rains were passing in opposite
directions, and the little girl saw but
one of them.

Owing to the absence of President
Jackson from the city it will be re
membered the regular monthly meet

should have been, but it will occur
next Thursday evening instead. On
that occasion the annual election of
oflicers will occur, committee reports
will be made and other action taken
looking to the association's future.
It is greatly desired Jhat all members
make a special effort to be present.
The association has clone too much
good work for Kock Island and there
is too much yet in store for it to do.
for it to droj) out of existence now.
