There was a marked difference in
the language and general drift of the
lecturer's remarks, the slandering
nature of which alone was accounta
ble for Sunday evening's unpleasant
ness. He eliminated his sarcasm
and caustic illustrations of Catholic
ism, and made very few references
which would tend to incite the ven
geance of those whose religion was
being attacked. In the event of any
disturbance, however, Clark was
well prepared, having secured the
attendance of the Moline, Davenport,

lecturer's remarks were brief, stating
this was necessary, as the order was

his intention of beginning a series of

evening, when he will again speak on

one of the body guards, apparently
thinking things were terminating
