BURLINGTON DID POORLY. IBE reel AGAINST HODOR.' National Temperance Congress in Session in New York City. A Veteran Washington Journalist Orders Him Oat of a Restaurant and the Barly Bostonian “Git* Up and Gits”—Other News. The Washington, June ll.—An excitingly interesting if not sensational scene occurred at John Chamberlin's celebrated restaurant this evening. A party of well-known newspaper men from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, dined this evening at Chamberlin’s. At the latter place Mr. Isaac Bromley, one of the brightest and most intellectual writers in the country, and for a long time connected with the New York Tribune, gave a dinner to a party of his newspaper friends in the main saloon. They had just seated themselves at the table, when a tall, well-made muscular man came up, and was introduced to the party as John L. Sullivan. It was indeed the noted prize-fighter, and he w'as pretty well “loaded.*’ Mr. Ollie Osborne, the bright young editor of the New Haven Refuter, was one of the dinner party, and when Sullivan coolly drew up a chair and took a seat at tho table, Mr. Osborne shoved his chair back, as much as to say if this man is going to he a guest at this table, I am not. Sullivan noticed the cut. and commenced using some rather boisterous language about himself, saying that be was a gentleman, etc. After speaking his speech he offered his hand to Mr. Bromley. The latter, iii the meantime, was looking Sullivan straight in the eye, and when the big hand of the slugger was reached toward him he refused to accept it. Sullivan demanded an explanation, and he got it quick and spirited from Mr. Bromley, who said:    “This is a private dinner party, sir, and these gentlemen are my guests and you are an offensive intruder. I refuse to take your hand because you are a bully and a coward.” The big bruiser looked at Mr. Bromley as though he would like to maul him up, hut the latter looked him square in the face and never flinched. Sullivan, however, contented himself in firing off a few explosive words, and when he finished. Mr. Bromley demanded that lie should leave the table. Sullivan gazed at Mr. Bromley, amazed at his coolness and courage. The latter sat quietly in his seat and commanded Sullivan to leave tho table. In the meantime, the latter had arisen from his seat, and was standing directly iii front of Bromley, looking at him savagely. There were many gentlemen in the dinning hall at the time, and there was much suppressed excitement. The guests of Mr. Bromley were extremely nervous and embarrassed, and moved restlessly in their seats. All present expected to see the notorious prize lighter kick over the table, and with his sledge-hammer blows pound all present to a jelly, but he did nothing of the kind. After looking at Mr. Bromley for a full minute, while the latter quietly continued his meal, Sullivan turned on his heel and walked out of the room. It was a clear case where nerve and intellectuality triumphed over brute force. Mr. Bromley is an old man; but he is dead game, and Sullivan no doubt made up his mind that he had met the wrong man to bluff. COLUMBUS CAR STRIKE. The Street Railway Company Makes Another Unsuccessful Effort to Move Cars. Columbus, Ohio, June ll.—The consolidated street railway made another effort to start street ears this morning, and the results and scenes enacted were similar to those of Monday.

Dr. Deems was made president of the National Temperance congress which convened here tc-day and began its work by discussing the question “Is state and national prohibition desirable and feasible?*’ He held it to be desirable and instanced the condition of Maine now* and before its temperance legislation. Robert Graham, who was introduced as a representative of the church movement in behalf of temperance, took the ground that national or state prohibition was neither desirable nor feasible. The total prohibition of sale or manufacture of wines and fermented or distilled liquors, he said, would be an extreme law and should have an impregnable basis. Prohibition, he asserted, was not effective. In spite of it the sale of liquor goes on practically openly in part of the land, in Bangor and other towns of Maine and in New Hampshire, Vermont and Iowa. He was in favor of high license. The next topic taken up was “The Battle at Omaha.” the opening address being made by Prof. Cornwall, of Aberdeen. South Dakota. This referred to the pending struggle in behalf of the prohibition amendment in Nebraska. The speaker said the struggle was sure to lead to success throughout the state of Nebraska. The result depended on the city of Omaha. They needed assistance in their battle against the saloon powder. If prohibition lost the fight in Nebraska. Iowa would be wrested from them, but if successful he could foresee the entire northwest free from liquor. The day was given up to the discussion of papers on kindred topics. ILLINOIS POLITICS.

[Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye.] Rock Island, 111., June IO.—The republican county convention was a most harmonious body. The first two nominations were made without opposition, it wras generally eonceeded that Hon. Lucian Adams should succeed himself and there was no question of opposition to the nomination of Col. II. Kahler as county clerk. His experience as deputy under R. A. Donaldson, who declined a re-nomination; qualified him for the duties. The above named are both popular men within the party and area source of strength in being drawing cards from the other party. Luther Pearsall, a retired farmer, was nominated for sheriff and he will he sw’orn into the office the first Monday of next December which is the day appointed by law' for the incoming and the outgoing to change. Thos. Campbell an old soldier was honored with the nomination for the office of county treasurer. If he does not receive a rousing majority it will not be for want of his friends and general popularity. J. IL Southwell was renominated to look after the educational interest of the county. Hon. Win. F. Crawford was endorsed as a fit candidate to the senatorial convention to represent Henry and Rock Island counties in the state senate. W. C. Collins was named as the choice of the convention for representative iii the lowrer house of the state legislature. There was one resolution which was passed without a dissenting voice, to-wit:    Endorsing    the renomination of W. IL Gest for congress. This was a matter of love on the part of the delegates, a majority of w'hom have known or been acquainted with his good w’ork for the past two years. There, is no mistaking the fact that Mr. Gest has a w'arm spot in the hearts of the people of this county. Those same warm friends are ever ready to lend a helping hand to their friend or whoever else aspires to his place. There is something about the composition of tho general republican of Rock Island county—it is harmony. They fight their battles in the caucus, convention or elsewhere, hut when the nominations are made they lock arms and stand back to back for the good cause. Laggards and half-wav men receive no comfort. MISSOURI DEMOCRATS. KiUed by a Switch Engine. Peoria, IIL.

Shortly after the election in that state, which went for prohibition, the liquor dealers and brewers resorted to all manner of strategyto smuggle beverages into the towns of the Hawkeye state. I was in the railroad business then, and we discovered suddenly that we were receiving new freight that was not mentioned in the classification sheets. "For instance, at one of the meetinsof the western classification committee a question arose as to the classification of Milwaukee conversation water. We were all iii the dark as to what now mineral water had been sprung upon us. and we never found out further than what we surmised when we saw the labels on the bottles, which bore such names as the ‘Philip Best Brewing company.' *Pabst Brewing company.’etc. There was another liquid that came up for classification, known as lagerino. ’in kegs, L. C. L..' etc. The kegs bore labels similar to those on tin' bottles of conversation water. Nerve tonic and vinegar-ine were beverages that sprung suddenly into popular favor after the prohibition law’ went into effect. Some of our brewer shippers got to shipping hardware in kegs to Iowa. but that commodity was never consigned to other states. 11 seemed to be a peculiar kind of hardware, adapted to the wants of the Iowans alone. "Along about the time I refer to walking canes flew into popularity in Iowa, and nearly every man in the state carried them. It was fashionable to change them often each day. and they sold like hot cakes at fifty cents each—just common, ordinary ten cent canes, such as we boys used to throw rings at in Nebraska City when the circus was in town. I spent a day in Dubuque once and bought a cane, because I saw every man I met carried one. I tried it on the first lamp post I came to and broke it in tho middle. A lot of amber-colored stuff ran out. and I discovered that inside was a little glass tube running the length of the stick. The cane was loaded with something. I thought it was arnica, but one of my friends told me it was peach brandy. “I went out with the officials at another time in our president's car, and while at Albia some one discovered that the stock of bottled goods had been left behind. Martin Brown—that was our colored porter—said never mind, he’d run out and get some cocoanuts. He came back with a dozen, and we had w hisky sours every morning the rest of the trip. “Eh? No: I never drank a drop, I should have used the pronoun ’they' instead of ‘we.' Cocoanuts were quoted higher in Iowa than in any other state in the union. I found that the end of the nut was punctured, the milk drawn out and spirits blown in. We, raised the classification on cocoanuts at tin* next meeting to three times first class. “There were two distinct grades of eggs sold by the Iowa grocers. Imported eggs sold for $3 a dozen and the common hen article for 12 cents. The imported contained extract of corn juice. They were tampered with in a manner similar to the cocoanuts."

[Special to The Hawk-Eye. Wapello. la.. June ll.—This place was visited by a severe cyclone last evening about seven o'clock. It came from tho northwest and first struck the fair ground, where it destroyed the judges* stand, amphitheater, floral hall, kitchen and ticket office.

His daughter by his second wife arrived here on Friday last. and with the aid of the police located lier father at 815 Main street. What was her astonishment to find him married to a third wife.
