The Da vec port Leader has a very
sensible article oa the revival of
Mississippi river commerce and in
cidentally it is exceedingly applica
ble to tho efforts being made in
Kock Island to establish and main
tain a permanent and improved levee.
The past year along the river has
demonstrated that there is still
money in river business, and that
there is likely to be a revival of.the
old time trade that will be inpirfn!.
Tho trade needs working up. This
seems to be the great trouble. The
oid Hue river men seem to tbiuk that
trade should come to them as a mat
ter ol course, and when with rapid
transit on the various competing
lines of railroad the trade on the
river dropped oil they gave up and
said that the days for water trans
portation Wire ot the past.
In this as in many other
things the old line river men were
mistaken, and some of them
are now able to sec their mistake in
the splendid business that has been
d'Mie by the pickets along the river
the past summer, and in fact, for sev
eral reasons bacc in the short trade.
A new school o' river men are now
taking hold of the business. They
are hustlers and allow no moss to ac
cumulate on the hulls of their crafts.
Where there has been no business,
and in trade that the old line men
sank money, they have come in and
with push and energy, promptness
and purse vera ucc they havo made it
pay and pay well. The old 'fresh
water salts' were want to laugh at
these men and call them land lub-
onrs, ami sav mat sucn ana such a
boat owner 'tried to make that short
lino trade pay but failed, aud he was
the best pilot or captain or something
or other on the river, and if he could
not make it pay no land lubber can.1
'l!n-v nave tlono it, though, and now
these uid timers sit on the river
bank and watch the boats go In-
crowded with passeogers and their
decks crowded with freight. Tho
old timers took what came to them
and sought after nothing. When the
packet business dropped off the bulk
of the business that was done was
rafting. Now that is falling olT. too.
and the drift naturally enough is
back to the packet trade.
The Levee KRCoarag-ed.
"This should bo encouraged by all
oi me cities along the river, and
those which have levees to improve
should lose no time in doing so.
Davenport has made a step in the
right tlirection, but the work is only
negiip. it Hliouid be kept up. Kock
Island tried to do so, but the mayor
vetoed the ordinance and the coun
cil is considering the matter of pass
ing it over the veto. This may be
done at the next meeting."

LINCOLNS LAY THE LASH.
Rival Third Avenue Organization Pat Oat
of the Itaslneu Lnat Night.
The names of the republican pres
idential team were pasted on a Hag
which was tacked up in the noith-
e-ist end of the Fifth ward last night.
And there was some discussion on
the republican sido of the questions,
which are .now confounding the
voter. It was a pretty loud af
fair all around but a considerable
amount of enthusiasm emanated from
the honest souls of democrats living
in that neighborhood who could not
refrain from laughiug at tho cock-
and-bull stories which the speakers
wcro attempting to put up.
In the hrst place there was a par
ade. It was the best turnout which
the republicans have had yet. The
affair was under the direction of the
Lincoln club, which was obliged to
stjnd the ordeal of playing sicond
fiddle to the Mi-Kin ley van Saturday
night. So the Third avenue push
was put out oi ine business right
last night. Capt. F. A. Freer, Har
ry Carse, Charley Searle and Doc
l nomas rone in a carnage, which
held second hag in tho walk, the
band being in front. Then came the
Lincoln aggregation and its auxil
iaries, 'ibe McKinley club played
taiiender. Hlcucr'a brass band 'led
the yellow fellows. They marched
up the line and down again and fin
ally came to a halt on the west side
of the Fifth avenue pharmacy on
Twenty-third street, where the faith
ful had erected a three-legged plat
form with the telegraph pole as a
substitue for number four.
There were no horsemen in the
parade this time, but Col. Cbannon,
the military head of the Lincoln
clubs, w;.s to have ridden a steed, in
order to even up the impression
which Col. William Harrison Jordan
made for the rival organization in
its late doings. Mr. Jordan carried
oil along with the remainder of the
common folk last night, although he
altered his appearanco to the amount
of wcaricg a seaweed in tho north
west corn.r of his duster. Mayor
Knox also walked. He is a member
of tho McKinley club. Doc Thomas1
bluo feeling, which was brought
ahmt by the white winged boys be
ing obliged to take the Mckinley
dust Saturday night, gave way to "a
beam of radiant smiles which were
interspersed with chuckles when last
night's pageant passtd his place of
business on the corner of the square.
Hat the blow almost killed C jilins.
The ilag was shoved heavenward
after the crowd had got settled at
von Koeckcritz's drug store corner.
and as it went up the zephyis
sang "Arran tio On" as thev plived
with the branches on Hobart's upper
Hp and tickled McKinley Hill under
me lower tecui. Then tbo speaking
went on. Charley Scar'e made that
speech which he "has delivered word
for word 31 times in the present
campaign. Capt. F. A. Freer, Con
gressman mace's faithful substitute
talked for an hour or so on the beau
ties of old glory and concluded by
mentioning inc laci mat tne parties
differed on the money question.
And the band played "He Home
r.arly lonight My Dear Hoy."
Dig down to the cause of your
sickness, if you want to get well and
stay well. Most likely it is indiges
tion. The irritating poisons ot fer-
imnurg, pmrid lood, K-rt in the
stomach by indigestion, cause head-
eacn, neuralgia, nervousness, dizzi
ness, stomachache, nausea, irritabil
ity, and all the other well known
symptoms ot indigestion.
They also cause many pains and
disorders which arc often laid to oth
er causes, and hence are not easily
carta. But as soon as the noisons
are removed, all these symptoms and
disorders disappear, because thro is
nothing left to cause them. Noth
ing succeeds in this like Shaker Di
gestive Cordial, because it prevents
the undigested food from fermenting
in the stomach and helps the stom
ach to digest its food.
