Unless the indicatlons'are all awry,
William K. Morrison will be the
unanimous choice of the democrats
for president when the national con-
vention convenes. Ho matter how
democrats may be divided on other
questions, there is a 'singular unani
mity among them as to the expedi
ency and propriety of making
Col. Morrison the standard bearer of
the party next year. Sound money
men and radical silverites sink their
differences when the question of se-
lecting s presidential nominee is
broached. Morrison has no literary
nureau, nor is there an organization
in his interest. The movement
seems to be spontaneous, and to be
encouraged from all sections of the
countrv. The sound money men
from Kew York and New England,
the sound money men and the radi
cal silverites from the south, the ex
treme free coinage and the sound
money men from the west, all de
clare that they can support Morrison,
and that he can poll the full party
sirengm. in tact there is nobody
else talked of for the democratic pres
idential nomination. Men who are au
thorized to speak for Mr. Whitney say
that he is not a candidate. There is
nothing in the talk of a third term
for Cleveland. The president never
countenanced the .agitation connect
ing him with a third term of the
presidency. Mr. Carlisle has many
admirers, but there seems to be i
feeling that because of the result of
the recent election in Kentucky, Mr.
Carlisle is no longer an availability.
Occasionally extreme free coinage
men declare that one of their school
must be nominated, but in the next
breath he will admit that Morrison
would be entirely satisfactory, and
would receive the full party vote,
notwithstanding his attitude on the
money question. The unanimity of
democratic feeling upon this subject
is attracting much attention, and is
considered rather ominous by the
republicans. Let two democrats
meet ia the corridors of a hotel, or
on the street, and one ask the other:
Whom do the democrats in your
region want for president?" The in
variable reply will be, Colonel Mor
rison." The consensus of opinion
has been so centralised on Morrison

that at this time nearly all the dem
ocrats in Washington feel that he
will be nominated by acclamation.
The republicans do not approve of
mis uusninuij among me uemo
crats. They feel that with the'dem
ocrats united and enthusiastic in sup.
pori oi a canaiaaie.approvea Dy all the
party, republican dreams of empire
next year might have been in vain.
Republican hopes of victory next
year-have been based largely on an
ticipation of democratic abstention
from the polls. But when republi
cans hear democrats of all shades of
belief declaring that Morrison would
be satisfactory to all the party, they
begin to feci that there will be an
old-fashioned political battle next
year, no walk-over, no landslide, and
the issue rather doubtful. The ex
treme free coinage men in the demo
cratic party are much more moderate
than they were when the Fifty-third
congress adjourned. Publicly they
still talk of nominating a free coinage
man, and putting a free coinage
Plank in the democratic platform,
rivately they admit that the chances
of the free coisage men controlling
the national convention are now very
slim and getting slimmer weekly.
Three extreme free coinage demo
cratic senators with whom I have con
versed duringthe past week say they
will be satisfied with a declaration in
favor of bimetallism and will be will
ing to ignore the question of ratio.
On the other hand, the republican
free coinage men seem to be becom
ing more aggressive. They claim
that the republicans cannot elect
their candidate without the electoral
votes of the western mining states,
and that these votes will not be given
to any man running on a "gold bug"
filatform. In fact, in a general way
t might be said that the democrats
here are preparing to light the com
mon enemy and cease lighting among
themselves. The western republi
cans indicate that they are more de
sirous of a first class family feud
among themselves than an open bat
tle with the democrats. In fact, the
republican leaders are expecting
mat iney win nave more ditucuity in
harmonizing conflicting views and
conflicting ambitions during the en
suing congress than at any time
since Blaine and Conkling ceased to
be factors in republican leadership.

Otto Nold, son of Henry Nold. who
has been attending a medical college
in Tennessee, not feeling very well,
has returned home for the winter.
The counters and shelving of W.
H. Whitesides' new store are about
all in. They are now pntting on the
finishing touches, and the building
will soon be ready for occupancy.
lbe bovs oi Joslin have adopted a
new method of hunting rabbits. They
set a step-ladder in the center of a
cornfield. ' One boy with a gun
mounts and takes a position on the
top while the others go to the out
skirts of the field and drive the rab
bits toward the center. It is claimed
that the boy with the gun can see
rabbits coming for 40 rods.
Thursday evening last the Wood

discovery that they are embarrassed

Sunday last Mrs. Elizabeth Will
iams had just returned home from a
visit to Mrs. Wesley Hanna when she
was suddenly taken sick and fell to
the floor. Her friends worked with
her for some time and finally thought
she was dead. However, they sent
ior ur. cooker ana she tonally rallied
and is now some better. The doctor
said it was an affection of the heart.
The funeral of Mrs. Wesley Hanna
was held at the residence and was
conducted by the Rev. Thompson, of
the Methodist church. The Zuma
choir rendered efficient service by
singing three select pieces. The minis!
ter stated that Mrs. Hanna was born
Oct. 24, 1818. came to Rock Island
county in 1849, was married Oct. 10,
1850, died Nov. 24 at the age of 77
years and one month. The minister
in his remarks stated that he had
never visited any one from whom ' he
had received more spiritual assist
ance than he had from Sister Hanna,
who had kept close to the church for
60 years. The minister did not take
a text nor preach a sermon, but
closed a very appropriate address
with the following wprds: "Let ns
all live with the soul object in view.
