A striking feature of the Saturday
night parade waa the appearance of
one prominent residence along the
line of march. Whiter one half of
this bode was brilliantly illumi

in Egyptian darkness. The line of
contrast was drawn as distinctly In
the middle of the front door as it
could have been, while conspicuously
displayed was this explanatory pla
card: "TVs House Is Divided.
Many inquiries were made as to
whose residence it was that presented

Out of the results of the election in

stamping the inconsistency of the
claims of repudiation which have
Deen laid to the door oi tne party in
the late campaign. .For while in
the presidential contest this was
made a purely one sided issue, in
kock island count tne question oi
public honor was submitted, and the
people asked to declare whether they
would sustain or repudiate the coun
ty's obligations incurred with their
consent twoC tears ago. While, as
has been said before, the county's
honor was saved through nock isl
and's vote, there were as many demo

as republicans, in the countj at large
the vote is the greatest against the

MAKE A FIVE-MILE MARCH.
Republican, stir I'p tbe Towa Saturday
Saturday night's republican ratifi
cation proved the noisiest demon
stration in the history of the three
cities, unless it was that of the night
following the final adoption ot the
Hennepin canal bill, and that, too,
was much more impromptu. How
ever, the political racket of Saturday
night served all intents and pur
poses. As a species of pandemonium
it was a success. Preceded by the
clamor of bells and the shrieking of
whistles, which began as early as 6
o'clock in the afternoon and contin
uing in fact until 9 at night, a pro
cession composed of marching clubs,
the Tri-City' bind and Bleuer'a ban 1.
and floits containing all manner of
exasperating, noise-producing instru
ment marched over five mile of
streets. The conglomeration ot dis
turbances w.is no respecter of per-
sjns. it simply was out lor a time,
and it had it. It was a success in
all that it was designed to be, and
the public is glad that it is over.
Wednesdav night Davenport will
celebrate and Kock Island will go
over and help ber out. Mouoe was
conspicuous for its limited represen
tation here eiatnrday night nut Dav
