In Moline the vote was so light

to a precinct, and there being nine

"-Faust,"' as given by the M ii rison
company, will be the attraction at
Harper's theatre Thursday evening.
While the world " endures, Goethe's
tragic story of "Faust and Marguer
ite ' will coutinue to live. The story
has been celebrated in song, and in
its operatic form has been elaborate
ly staged for many years, but it re
mained for this company to present
it in worthy dramatic form with all
the effects and accessories necessary
to give it weirdness intended by the
author. In this version the role of
Mephisto is made a jolly jovial devil,
one well calculated to enchain the
souls of men in the ;lanioiir of for
bidden pleasures. The scenic effects
are strongly brought out and serve
to accentuate the dramatic situation
in a vivid manner. One of the most
notable effects is at the end of the
first act, where Mephisto exults over
the capture of the soul of Faust,
when midst darkness and thunder
bursts," the blazing cross appears
over the cathedral doors. In the
garden scene again, where the flow
ers burst into bloom by electricity,
and the duel scene when Mephisto
conies to the aid of Faust, the Hash
ing steel produces a pale blue flame,
giving a weird effect, reaching its
climax in the scene of the witches"
carnival in the Urocken, where the
electric fluid plays cn important
part, ending in a shower of lire, and
in the clo-iug scene where the angel
Marguerite is bearing the senseless
form of Fanst heavenward, making
Mephisto's linal end.
On Friday evening the great
wrestling match between Farmer"
Martin Burns, who Las never been
seen defeated here, and 1. II. Car

place at Harper's theatre. It is an

Maj. J. M. r.c:uV.slcy. of Koek Isl
and, was at the Craml I'.icilic yester
day and felt some interest "in the
meeting of prominent citizens to se
cure a new government building
here. Relatively, he says, Uock Isl
and is as much dissatisfied as Chi
cago with the apathy and niggardli
ness of the government. Some time
ago congress appropriated t7A,0"J0
for the erection at uock Island of a
structure for a postoflico and other
public oflices, lint the amount is re
garded as inad"iinate. About f 15,-
0110 of the sum has been expended for
ground on which to build and other
preliminary expenses, leaving only
;o.00 for the building itself. This.
Maj. Beardsley says, will put up no
such structure as is demanded, nor
large enough to accommodate all the
government oflices. Besides, it
would be a disgrace to the govern
ment ami the town, when placed
alongside of the magnificent new
county building, which is to cost
about ;f l.W.um. Koek island is an
important national as well as busi
ness center, and no flimsy, $GO,000
structure will answer government
purposes, Maj. Beardsley thinks.
The United States engineering de
partment for improvement of the
Mississippi river and waterways,
from St. Paul to St. Louis, has 'its
headquarters there. Rock Island is
also a port of entry and is an import
ant internal revenue point.

closiug his brief remarks, Mr. HiV
richsen paid a high tribute to the
tiring president, Delos 1. . Plrsifts,
whom ho declared to bp able, realous
and absolutely clean. Dennis Hogan
nominated Theodore Nelson for scc-n-tnry.
Sain It. Chase nominated
Thomas Galian for vice chairman,
ad .1. V. Potter nominated V. It.
I'.rinton for treasurer. All three
were elected by acclamation.
Franklin Mar-Vrnfch SeahK.
l'ranklin MacYeugh was in the
room, and upon being invited to ad
drops the committee, responded
briefly. He expressed his gratifica
tion upon the harmonions organiza
tion of the committee and thonght it
was the very best that could be se
lected from the material the party
has in the state. He did not qui U
agree with the chairman when' he
said it was no part of the commit-
tee's work to construct platforms. 1
He believed the committee was the!
most competent tribunal in the state
to discharge that duty, and he rec
ommended that it lose no -time in
getting ready to put forth a declara
tion of the principles o the party.
It was, as Air.- Hinrichscn had said,
the duty of the committee to organ
ize for victory, bnt democrats must
recognize the fact that in self defense
and in the performance of duty to the
people, a campaign of education
must be carried forward. It was
not enough to organize for the pur
pose of gett;ng out the vote. There
must be an effort made to stimulate
democratic thought. Democrats
must be taught to support tliO'T own
principles. If they had done this in
the last campaign they might have
been defeated, bnt not have been
overwhelmed. Let the work of edu
cation, Mr. MacVcagh argued, begin
at once. He believed the principles
of the democratic party were the
principles of the jieople, and yet,
strange to say, the people went" back
on them at the late election. The
party must be taught to stand by its
principles and the work of education
should be entered npon at once.
