AH EVEHTJTG AT WATCH, TOWER.
Appreciation of the Order' Ex-Attorney's
Effective Work In Connection With Head
OflBce Removal Attested In Eulogistic
Speeches lie U Given a Handsome Silver
A work which has for a period of
years. commanded in so large a degree
the energies of the Woodmen and citi
zens of Rock Island, and has in so
broad an extent engaged the attention
of the community at large, both
within and without the order, a work
which for so long awakened the in
tense earnestness and determination
on the part of all our people, was hap
pily rounded out last evening by the
bestowal of a fitting testimonial upon
one who has been so identified with
those joint eudeavors on the part of a
great order and a city as to indissolu
uly associate his name with the
achievements of both.
The occasion was the presentation,
on behalf of the Woodmen generally
1 1! 1 ytxyTii'
J. C. JOHNSON.
and citizen of Rock Island thrjugh
the original committee, and r -'presenting
three Woodmen camps o. the
citv on head ollice removal, to Hon.
J. G. Johnson, former general attor
ney of the order, of a tribute of the
high appreciation and esteem in which
he is held in Rock Island. The com
mittee and the citizens who were asso
ciated with the committee in the
event could not have adopted a more
entirely pleasing, as well as appropri
ate, manner of celebrating the consum
mation of a task fraught with many
difficulties and perplexities, but com
pleted as the reward of unflagging de
votion. To Woodcraft in Rock Isl
and, the home city of the great order,
Johnson is what the sweet prince of
Denmark is to the masterplay of Ham
let. And who can better judge of a
man's worth and the elements which
are his of triu greatness than
those who see him in moments
of most severe ordeal, moments
that test the wits and try the
soul. The Woodmen and the cit
izens of Rock Island have seen J.
G. Johnson under such circum
stances, and thev have seen a man
undaunted by. adversity, unfaltering
in fidelity to a trust, unwavering in
the execution, of a doty even at
the risk of life. Iu the relation that
Rock Island bears to the Modern
Woodmen, the city is in a position to
know and to realize the inner character
of the man who during his ollicial con
nection with the order was entrusted
with some of the most exacting re
sponsibilities looking to the society's
welfare, if not its very existence.
Happy and Appropriate Affair.
It was meet that the committee
which .had played so important a part
in all the affairs of the Woodmen or
der so far as this city, her claims,
and mutual interests are con
cerned, and the citizens who
had cooperated with the committee
in many ways, should adopt this
method of closing its affairs prior
to reporting back to the camps.
Hence an invitation was extended
to Mr. Johnson to meet and dine
with the committee and friends
at Black Hawk inn on this occasion.
Head Clerk C. W. Hawes and those of
the official board of the order who
were in the city. Directors B.
D. Smith and Marvin (jnackenbush,
and General Attorney J. W. White,
were also of the party which left the
city on the 8:30 car for the Tower last
evening. Reaching the delightful
summer resort, an hour was
spent sociably on the verandas,
and at 10 o'clock the party gathered
about tables which bad been spread
in the private dining rooms on the
second floor, where Manager McHugh
as usual did himself proud in the na-
ture of the repast. When this had
been served and cigars had been
passed, Chairman W. C. Mauck
er of the committee of fifteen, act
ing as president of the evening,
made a few appropriate introductory
remarks, speaking of the event as
witnessing the culmination of the
work of the committee of fifteen rep
resenting the various camps in Bock
Island of the Modern Woodmen on
head office removal. He then traced
briefly the circumstances of the ap
pointment of the committee and its
labors in harmony with the head
officers for the removal of the head
office to this city. It was right and
fitting now, Mr. Maucker said, that
the committee, prior to reporting back
to its respective camps and asking
to be discharged, peiform a pleasant
duty which it had assumed on this
occasion. He spoke of those who
outside of the committee had been
identified with the work, and referred
regretfully to the absence of Hon.
Willi m "Jackson and Hon. E W.
Hurst, both of whom, though out of
the city, had shown that they were
present in spirit through words of
greeting on the occasion. The com
mittee had not an Admiral Dewey,
Mr. Maucker said, to stand for its
achievements, but it had a Commo
doro Sturgeon, who had commanded
a fleet in the enemy's waters on an
historical occasion, whom he there
upon introduced to voice further the
sentiments of the committee and citi
zens on this occasion.
SPEAKS WORDS OF APPRECIATION.
Mr. Sturgeon Tells of How Kock Islaud
Feels Toward Mr. Johnson.
In responding Mr. Sturgeon stated
that he had been commissioned to
speak for Woodmen and citizens of
Rock Island In a genei'al way, and for
others in a special way. He had not
been familiar, he said, with the com
mittee of local Woodmen camps, and
was not a member of the Woodmen
order, and while he had taken an in
terest in the question of the removal
all along, as any public spirited citi
zen would in any affair in
which the city was concerned,
his deepest interest was aroused when
he became familiarwith the work being
done by his esteemed and honored
friend, Mr. Johnson, and the latter's
great legal battle against unusual and
tremendous odds. The speaker said he
doubted if there would ever again
come a time in Mr. Johnson's career,
or if there had ever been a time to so
thoroughly try his personal worth
and metal, his worth to the order he
had served so faithfully and with such
signal distinction. Mr. Sturgeon spoke
of the days in the great undertaking,
when the wheels moved slowly,
when time dragged and when cir-.
cumstances were most discourag
ing, and yet these were days when
Mr. Johnson,.lost not heart nor pluck,
and the Woodmen order and the citi
zens of Roctflsland knew that noth
ing was' neglected that faithfulness
and fidelity to a trust could suggest.
The people of Rock Island, Mr. Stur
geon said, every one of whom was
Mr. Johnson's friend, appreciated to
the limit what he had done for the
city, and particularly what he bad
done for the order. 'After referring
thus to what he had been commis
sioned to fray to Mr. Johnson on be
half of his friends and neighbors in
Rock Island, Mr. Sturgeon said he
wished to speak also as a member of
the bar, and here he paid a professional
tribute to Mr. Johnson's work and
worth. As a brother in the practice
of law, Mr. Sturgeon pronounced it
as his verdict that Mr. Johnson had.
through his achievements, won the
everlasting appreciation and esteem
of the legal profession in this county.
Mr. Sturgeon spoke at some length of
the magnificent work of Mr. Johnson
in the legal contest in which the order
was striving to carry 'out its own will
in the government of its own . affairs.
It was in the hour of the general at
torney's most trying experience in
that contest that the sympathy
and admiration of the bar of Rock
