mothers today. Many Rock Island mothers
have solved the questions and are trading at

Rev. R. F. Sweet, rector of Trinity

O, God. who art the blessed and
only Potentate, the King of kings
and Lord ol lord: the Almighty
timer 01 nations; we adore and mag
nify Thy glorious name for all the
great things which Thou hast done

favor toward us. Grant that we may
show forth our thankfulness for these,
Thy mercies, by living ia reverence
01 thy almighty power and dam in

ness and mercy, and in holy obedi
enoe to . Ihy righteous laws. 1 re
serve, we beseech lbee, to our

people of the earth. May the King

in holy fellowship; that so their

forth with most humble and holy
fervor the praises of Him who hath
loved them, and made them kings

happy with the tnbu e of a country's
gratitude, and finally bring them to
peaceful rest in Jesus. O, AI

and Redeemer. . Amen.
The 11. O. quartet sang "We
Gather Here With Beverence." and
Mayor Medill made a short address.
in which he said that this aseem
blage met . today for the purpose of
paying tribute to the vast army of
unnumbered dead, who gave id
their lives that the nation might
live. He apoke of the propriety of
such a custom, when we review tbe
memories of their acts of valor, and
In a feeling manner mentioned the
parting aeenes of loved ones whose
home-coming was waited for in vain.
In closing1 he paid a high tribute to
the old soldiers who preserved a
single flag for the grandest nation on
Tka Otatl f taw Day.

then delivered tha oration at tha
day. ' Of one thing I am truly eon-
vinced," said the speaker, in begin
ning, "that these exercises are not
held for the advancement of any
party or politics. The true mission
of today ia to treat of patriot
ism." It is proper on an oc
casion like this, Mr. Thomason
said to devote some attention and
time to the formative period in this
union. He then went back to the
revolutionary times and said that
during the progress of the war for
independence, tne colonies nan
agreed to the articles of confedera
tion. They were a grand and worthy
document, yet in many respects they
were inadequate to tne general good
and welfare of the people. They
represented a loose union of in
dependent commonwealths. They
admitted the sovereignty of
each state, and hence it was
inevitable that they must be
revised. But Instead of a revision
they were dispensed with, and
n tneir steaa was araiteu
and adopted what is now
our federal constitution. Thus the
government machinery was set in
motion, with th9 lather 01 bis coun
try at its head.
Unfortunately, there naa crept in
among our people a curse which was
to test tbe strength 01 the constitu
tion, and shake the very foundations
of onr government. Beautiful indeed
was the garment of liberty, woven
with the warpen woof of colonial
struggles, but an evil genius threw
into the shuttle that wove the go den
cloth of freedom, the scarlet thread
of bondage. The annihilation of
thia curse resulted in one of the
most ghastly strifes that ever sev
ered and slaughtered tbe men of the
nation. Mo civil war waa ever
waged among the people of. a conn
try without having the effect of re
forming some of the principles of
government of that nation. The
bnai result 01 such reformation was
either to ennoble or demoralize
that race of people.
lf K form Wlthoat KcvalaUoa.
No great and everlasting reform
was ever accomplished, the speaker
maintained, without a revolution.
More especially was this true of t
past than the present. Ue then
spoke of the gathering to call to
mind the loving memories of the past.
whose recollection will linger like the
sunlight on the water lillies' bed. Go
ing back to the days of '61, he spoke
of the odious slave laws, that sold
human beings like cattle, tore the
child from the arms of the weeping
mother, and when the bay of tha
bloodhounds was the only music of
the nation. He followed the boys in
blue on their weary marches over
the southern battlefields until the
climax at Appomattox, when 800.000
bondsmen were sprinkled with the
baptism of liberty. Passing on
through the nation's history he com
paced the country of today with the
conditions 3D years ago.'and spoke
of the glories of American achieve
ment. with all the invention of
modern times the United States has
placed the results of her genius in
every civilized country. He spoke
to the old soldiers in a touching
manner, referring to tbeir devotion
to the flag, and mentioned the high
station the United States enjojs
among the nations of the earth, for
which these veterans, by their noble
d.eds, carved the foundation. In this
connection he called attention to tbe
duty we owe to these defenders of
the republic, the last of whom will
soon cross the river of life and bade
all to lead them gently by friend
ship's hand down to the eJge of the
waters of the silent river.
In closing the speaker said that a
Decoration day address was intom
p etc without a reference to Abra
ham Lincoln. He then recounted
the life of him of whom he spoke,
and paid a elowic? tribute, over-
flawing with lofty sentiments to his
undaunted courage and fidelity to
those principles that placed him on
the pinnacle of fame. His address
had tbe closest attention and was
able, eloquent and inspiring.

WAS IT A
Startling Charges ia the Case
of Adam Alday.
POISONED DURIMG ILLKESS.
His Former Wife Arrested
For Burning the House.
Joseph Kipp Confesses
Having Done the Job.
Developments of a startling nature
are gradually coming to light in the
case of tbe late Adam Alday, of Mo-
line, and if what bis sons. William
and Edward Alday, claim, can be
substantiated by facts, someone will
probably have to answer to a charge
of murder. Adam Alday, who was
an extensive property bolder, died
in October. 1895. His residence was
destroyed by fire in January, 1896.
It was always looaea upon as a mys
terious affair, and accusations of in-
cendiarlsn were freely made. Last
night, Mrs. Mary Osbar, Mr. Alday's
former wife, was arrestea at her
home in Davenport by Deputy Sher
iff Hull. She is accused of arson.

Joseph Kipp, the old man. arrested
a few daa ago, accused of setting
Are to the Aider house, has con
tossed his crime. In an affidavit,
sworn to before County Clerk H.
Kohler, May 87, Kipp says:
On tbe 15th day of January.1896
I set fire to the residence of Adam
Alday, at the instigation of Mrs
Aldav. for a Jersey eow and f40. I
chopped kindling wood, and piled it
in tne cellar, being provided with
five gallons tf kerosene, and broke
the stairway and partition so as to
give a draft even to the tower.
raised the windows two inches on
the upper floor, and placed all the
paper and carpet, saturate witn
kerosene, on the stairway, when
Mrs Alday was about to leave for
Davenport, so as to be out of the
way of suspicion. The house being
prepared, I told her I would not set
it afire if tbe wind was not in the
proper direction; late at night
entered the house, and set
it afire under tbe stair
way of the main honse
and then untfer the kitchen. Then I
went home and remained there until
between 6 and 7 o'clock. The two
trunks were inside of the building
near the door when I went up in the
morning; not burned and contents
saved. I was there off and on two
weeks in the day time until about
fonr days before Adam Aider's death.
During that time I saw the doctor
there once before he died. We fed
him whisky, soda ater and ginger
ale. We gave him no medicine dur
ing the time I was there. I did cot
hear the doctor say that be must not
have anything but whisky. I did
not want the cow, because it would
arouse suspicion, and William Alday
was to sell the cow and I was to get
the proceeds, but I did not get them,
he keeping the money.1'
In his will, Adam Alday left three
lots apiece to hia aons, Edward and
William. The remainder of his es
tate was bequeathed t his wife-, who
afterward married Hans Osbar, of
Davenport. The Alday boys are now
attempting to break tbe will. They
have retained Hij Beerdaley and U.
Searle. They charge that undue
influence was exercised over their
father in making the will. They
also claim that his death t cauae i
