Whereas, Nearly four years have
elapsed since the passage of the act
authorizing a public building in the
city of Hock Island, without any
start being made toward the erection
of said building, while oil the other

directed to appoint some suitable
person to go to Washington, in

and such oilier matters as affect the
interests of this locality, and that a
committee of three be appointed by
the president to solicit funds to de
fray the traveling expenses of this
course to pursue. It is evident that
Congressman Tost is powerless to
accomplish anything in the matter,
and the association should put its
case in the hands of one who may be
in a position to do more.

Gnyer named as the committee on
solicitation of funds to send a rep

The ecstasy aroused among repub
licans, especially those who had been
relieved from public service in the
past, through the instruments of the
people, over the fact that they won a
victory Tuesday, did not subside
yesterday; on the contrary it found
vent last night in a rip-snorting dem
onstration which lasted during most
of the evtcing, after which the par.
ticipants went home feeling that thev
had done themselves proud. That
same identical band playing that
same identical tune in "that same
identical way, that formed the dis
tinctive feature of Tuesday night's
spontaneous outburst was at the head
of the line. One was able to discern
that the boys constit utingit had been

on last night, which they did not
have time to get into on their previ
Bast night the Flambeaus, the relic
of the campaign of Ben Harrison,
were out, white suits, flaming
torches, and all. There was a pa
rade through most of the streets,
during which all the victors of Tues
day's contest in the lower end were
serenaded, "Honey" Johnson repeat
ing his speech of Tuesday night about
"what's the matter with me?" atiJ

Searle Mount the New Stand.
There were cries for Searlc, who
mounted the new band stand in Mar
ket square, flapped his w ings, crew
and said something that sounded
like: "See what a big boy ant I
way np here and you way down
there." Then he told how nice he
always felt when addressing a re
publican crowd. Then he "spoke
about Ben Harrison and the Ameri
can Hag, and how the democrats had
pulled it down the Hag in the
Sandwich islands. He said the young
men had done the business Tuesday,
and that they would again be heard
from next fall, when they would re
deem Illinois by RM,(nitj majority,
and two years later they would elect
Bill MrKiuley or McKinlev Bill, or
somebody else president. There
were cries for McConoehie, but
.iiac siinpiy advanced and said a
few words confidentially to the lads
in white, and admonished them that
he had a substitute in Mai. Beard s-
slcy. The msjor was some distance
remote at the drinking fountain
and while the crowd took up the' cry
of "Bcardsley ! Beanlsley!"' he heod"
ed it not, and the procession re
formed and marched off a disap

blooming state's attorney.
The Flambeau club proeet-ded up
town and paid respect to the various
winners, leaving (Jeorge Schneider in
a state of hysterics that threatened
nervous prostration today, and then

The secretary was asked if he had
received the books of the association
from the former secretary, S. W.
Searlc. Secretary Day said he had
received the minutes of the associa
tion, and i receip.t book for the year
ending Aug. o, ls'.:, but no
account of the financial transac
tions of the association.
After considerable discussion in
which all present took part, and in
w hich the ex-secretary was freely de
nounced for his conduct, and many
suggestions made as to proceedings
against hint under the criminal code
in the event of failure now to make
a satisfactory explanation of the dis
position of "the association funds,
which have passed through his
hands, it was moved and seconded
and carried that a committee con
sisting of the president, vice presi
dent and secretary be instructed to
call on S. W. Searle, the former sec
retary, and demand an accounting,
and to take legal action if necessary.
The records of the association arc
in a very unsatisfactory condition as
was shown last evening, and not at
all creditable to the past secretary.

the assaciation. The Akul'S believes
it should withhold its purpose to

today when preparations were begun
for the erection of a building on the
corner of Second avenue and Twen

passed through the minds of every

the builditiL'. Were various. Some
thought that it was a union depot.
and others that the C. U. I. & 1. was
erecting a denot. But. alas! cruel
fate, as the building developed it
proved to be nothing more than an
