Congressman Wins the Henry
County Endorsement by
TOOK THE DELEGATES UNA WAKES.
Mercer County Stick to Block, Whirh
Will Show a Line I'p Without a
Choice at the Opening of Next
Wednesday's Convention in Kock Inl
and. Prince won the endorsement of
the Henry county republican con
vention yesterday through a trick.
The Searle men hal he tiled off
the astute oitieian in a former
clevely conceived plan to control the
convention, and thought thev had the
l'riuee influences scattered. The del-
gat ion to the count v convention had
been selected and the ticket nomi
nated, ami the Kock Island contingent
went out to test whistles, thinking it
was all over, when a series of resolu
tions were presented, endorsing the
president, the ( iibati war and divers
other things. And tucked in conven
lenuv among me ot Hers was
this: '-Wc commend the action of
our representatives in congress, who
have so earnestly and wisely held up
me nanus oi t lie president, not only
in the conduct of the war, but also in
those other measures necessary to the
welfare of the nation. We approve
anu endorse t lie course of the mem
ber of congress from this district
whose imprint lias leen felt oa ini
iHirtaut legislation, ami whose stand
ing in the house of representatives
lias reuected credit upon the district.
and we reiiest our delegates to the
congressional convention at Kock Isl
and June 1 to use all liunoraMi1
means to secure the nomination of
(leorge W. Prince, of (ialcshtirg. for
congress.'" And they all passed in a
iiuncii, much to the consternation of
the Searle men.
Mercer county republicans yester
day endorsed Brock for congress, which
precludes the possibilities of the nom
ination being settled in the opening
ballot, and arrays Prince against

My Dear Mrs. Durham: I want to
tell you. what you must know, that
your son was doing well in the col
lege work and seemed likely to do
better and better. Every one who
has spoken to me about him in these
last lew days lias had only good to
say of him: and he seems to
have been the kind of man
that men believe in without
hesitation. I w ish 1 might lie of some
use to you and yours. If there is any
thing that I can do about your son's
affairs in Cambridge. 1 beg you will
tell me. 1 have not gone to see vou
because I knew that all that could
lie done would be done at the hospital.
anu iiecause i knew that it 1 were in
your place I should wish to see as few
jK-rsoiisas possible. When I know-
that the college can ill spare a boy
like yours. I know somet hing of the
loss to those whom he came very
near. Believe me. very sincerely
yours. L. B. K. I'.uuins.

it may perhaps lie a comfort to you to
know t lie leelings ol respect ami re

came in contact with him even the
somewhat formal contact of teacher
and scholar. I was his adviser in his
freshman vear. He was too good a
scholar and too high-minded a man

of him. but I remember the vivid
impression of character and refine-

in one of my (leriuan courses this
year. Here the impression was only
deepened. I was struck with his
clear intelligence, with his faithful
perfiri niance of his tasks, above all
with the singular nobility and win
mug charm of his character. Slight
as our acquaintance was, 1 came to

You have the consolation of knowing
that his life was a happy oik-, un-

knew him one of those lives that
live on as a power for good. To be
saved by a painless death the sorrows
