patch, who has been over the field at
Sprinirfield. in writing up the mem
bers from the I hirtv-thirci district, has
this to say of the Kock Island legisla
tor: "Mr. Hurst, tbe - democratic
metulier, is one of the leaders on his
side of the house. He is probably tbe
brainiest man there, and if he bad
been in the legislature the previous
term would have been made the lead;
er of the democrats. While the Dis
patch has no voice in tbe selection of
a democratic candidate, it sincerely
hojes the party will send Mr. Hurst
again, 'lie is a troublesome ieuow
to us on political questions.' said tbe
speaker. Judge Sherman, to the
writer, 'for he is ready for us every
time, but we all like aim, and hope to
have him returned. "
These prices prevail at both stores. Main store corner Fourth

Tii-Ctty Organization Happily Entertained
Davenport newspaper men were the
hosts on the occasion of the regular
monthly meeting of the Tri-Citv Press
club held at the Kimball bouse in that
city last evening. It was in all re
spects one of the pleasantest gath
erings the local newspaper men
have held since the formation of
their organization. In the absence of
President Johnson, Vice President P.
S. McGlynn, of Moline, occupied the
chair. After the routine of the club's
business had been disposed of, during
which it was determined to discon
tinue the monthly meetings for the
summer after the May meeting
in Moline. the program of
the evening's ' entertainment was
taken up. J. M. Colligan, of Kock
Island, contributed two vocal selec
tion , when J. E. Calkins, of Dav
enport, told an interesting and enter
taining narrative of two occasions in
his early experiences as a news gath
erer in interviewing Gen. Sheridan.
Andrew A. Mallon, an actor of the
old - school, then gave the club the
pleasure of a number of dramatic reci
tations, including an exhibition of
silent acting which was particularly
fine, and concluded with impersona
tions of Booth and Barrett in the
quarrel of Brutus and Cassius. At
the conclusion of the exercises, the
Davenport members entertained the
club with a line lunch,, and while the
cigars were being enjoyed there was
an informal discussion of a sugges
tion offered by S. W. Searle in behalf
of Mr. Mallon for a press club benefit.
The matter was linally referred to a
committee composed of J. J. La Velle,
of Kock Island; J. K. Calkins, of Dav
enport, and P. S. McGlynn, of Moline,
to consider and report to a meeting of
the club to be called at the discretion
of tho committee.

Saloonkeepers at Milan will con-
tinue to do business at the old stand
For some weeks it was a question
whether the jig would not be up for
tangle-foot dispensers in that village
after tbe spring election, but the sus
pense was broken when the vote was
announced at the close of the polls
last evening. The boys who tip the
high ones say the saloonkeepers are
overjoyed, and may, in order to prop
erly demonstrate their appreciation
of the effective wrk done for their
cause by the "crock-tippers' union
have another story built on their hop
It was probably the hottest election
that ever occurred in the town that
nestles on the shore of the great II
nepin canal. The temperance people
made a otrong light. They had been
agitating the movement to close up
the saloons for months, having en
gaged a professional lecturer
who did the temperance cause
more harm than good to appear
at the town ball for several
nights in their efforts to educate the
residenters against the iniquity of the
saloon. J he anti-license ladies served
lunch while the voting was in pro.
gress, and doubtless won some of the
stnrd' stownsmen over to their side
by appeasing their appetites free of
charge with daintily served delicacies.
lhe supporters of the people s or
license ticket put up an equally ener
getic light, and left no stone unturned
to bring to the polls every man within
the corporate limits who they thought
was favorable to their cause. The vote
was as follows:

Ant l-Llcrnne Winn at Port Ityron.
At Port Byron the liquor question
also figured prominently in tho elec
tion. The citizens' ticket candidates
were for a modification' of the ordi
nance giving to the druggists more
leeway in the selling of liquor for
medicinal purposes. J.he anti-license
ticket was victorious, electing for
trustees J. XV. Maxwell. B. Y. Alls-
brow and t rank McAIeekin, a maior-
ity of the village board, while the
citizens' party elected E. M. Rogers
for president, James Swisher for trus
tee and Julius L.inkc for clerk.
At Coal V aiev it was merely a
choice of candidates. The citizens'
ticket won. The vote: For presi
