Gen. Lewis Han back, of Kansas
City, was introduced by Gen. W.
A. Srhmitt, chairman of the dav.
After alluding to the tiag, to which
all loyal Americans should look
and cling, as does the christian to
the cross, the speaker described the
condition of the north and touth in
April, 1S61. While the north was
all id a hustle with preparations for
the business of the coming year, and
with no thought of the great danger
impending; the south was clouded,
mm were busy organizing them
selves, the streets resounded with
the tread of marching feet, and the
air was full of treason. He described
the consternation created on April
1-'. 1X01, when the news Hashed
through the country that Sumpter
hal lieen phreu upon, lie spoke of
the panic it created in a little church
in Morgan county. 111., where the
sw:iker was raised', and spoke with
rev crciitial respect of the old gray
haired minister who had charge of
the little Hock. His glowing and af
fectionate description of Abraham
Lincoln, his youth, manhood and
statesmanship, and last, his brutal
anil cowardly assassination, was re
ceived with applause well deserved.
Gen. Han back described his joining
a regiment in Jacksonville. 111., in
18dl, under the command of one
whose tenacity of purpose, whose
bravery and to whom he was much
attached. Napoleon B. Buford, in a
manner effective and showing hearti
iness and sincerity. He also spoke
affectionately of the late Dr. E. II.
Bowman and D. B. Scars, to the for
mer of whom he was greatly at
tached. He sympathized with the
widows and mothers whose hearts
bled for their lost, and described the
grief of a poor man and women named
Ebe, at learning of their son's death
at the battle of Bellmont, Nov. 7,
1801. The general spoke of the day
to come when he said a monument
whose apex would pierce the very
clouds and on whose sides, standing
out clearly and boldly, would be seen
the inscription, "To the Loyal
Women of America."
He spoke of the respect due to the
old soldiers and of the calumny with
which they were lieing talked of at
the prcsont time, and said: "When
thev Bre gone flags will be unfurled
and take the place ol calumny." He
said that the fraudulent G. A. R.
men were as few as the angel visits
to those mat inn- such charges, in
conclusion the general spoke the
poem, "Flags, Only Flags."
The police force made its Crst ap
pearance in new summer uiniomin.
The veterans have ffone to Chippi
annock this afternoon to dedicate the
waves of the soldier dead there.

The home team lost yesterday to
Omaha, but won this morning, giv
ing the visitors a thorough drubbing
and knocking Baxcndalc out of the
box in the fourth inning. Andrews
pitched the game of his life for Rock
Island, but three hits being made off
his delivery, and Zeis supported him
lN-hind the bat splendidly. It is
gratifying to know that Andrews'
luck has changed, for he has been
winning games right along that
w-ere in the face of his work lost
through the mere force of circum
stances. The "doctor" has found
his mascot, undoubtedly. A feature
was the fact that only 25 went to the
bat for Omaha. It is a source of sat
isfaction to lind that Baxendale, who
deserted the Twin-City team two
years ago after Sage had made him
all that he was in the pitcher's box,
has not improved so much that local
admirers of the game need shed
any tears over the fact that he is not
on the team this year. The home
club went at him this morning in a
manner that had a tendency to show
that they have no particular fond
ness for the Baxendale stripe of hall
players. By previous agreement,
only seven innings were played this
"morning, and they resulted:

it went toward the bleachers, and

scored. Cantillion got his base on

and Seery got a base on balls. Jack

Yesterday's Democratic County Conven
tion. Yesterday's democratic county
convention was one of the best
organized and best managed ever
held in the county. Mayor Medill
proved an admirable executive officer,
and the expeditious manner in which
the work was put through without
friction or discord was a creditable
evidence of his ability.
The outcome of the" convention left
no bitterness or feeling, as did the
result of the republican convention
held the previous week. The major
ity ruicu in an things, the only dif
ference of sentiment being on the
propriety of favoring the nomination
of a candidate for United States sen-J
ator in the state convention, and on
this point the preponderance of senti
ment opposed to giving any expres
sion was overwneimino-. The prin
ciples enunciated in the platform of
resolutions were timely and prop
er. There is a marked difference
indeed, in which the resolution con
demning the proscription as to creed
in politics fared in the hands of the
democratic convention and the way
practically tho same resolution sub
mitted by Dr. Truesdalc in the re
publican convention was hushed.
The compliment paid to Hon. Ben T.
Cable by his home county which
seized the opportunity thus to for
mally present his name as a candi
date for United Stafs senator from
the great state of Illinois is fullv
merited and the act is as graceful as
it is belittino-.
The logic and eloquence ilisplaved
by Messrs. L. C. Blanding and M. J.
Mc-Eniry on the floor of the conven
tion in support of the proper applica
tion of parliamentary law. were fea
tures of the proceedings, convincing
in tneir character, and thus obviating
any possible chance for exception to
me enxur s rulinp-s.
The candidates nominated for the
various county offices are all repre
sentative, old-time democrats, party
workers ani popular citizens ol tn
county, jney win each and all go
into the canvass with a vim and a
purpose to win that will carry the
dav next November.

Mr. Merrell's I'npopniar Discourse.
KotK Islanp. Mav 30. Editor
A kg i8: The vituperative remarks of
a local clergyman should be beneath
the serious notice of a member of a
christian church, but when a minis
ter of the gospel introduces his petty
prejudices in a ceremonial sacred to
the memory of federal soldiers who
died for their countrj-, it is high time
for someone to call, h'alt!
Rev. I. W. Merrell is responsible
for some of the most bigoted remarks
that were ever uttered by a clergy
man from a christian pulpit. We
fear he is not posted on the historv
of the societ v of Jesuits as he should
be before coins; into this subject.
I am not eritic'.sino- the srentleman
because I am a Catholic, but I take
exceptions to his attempt to create
trouble in a liberty-loving commu
nity. P". M. Maiiek,
