Nellie Ely doubtless thought she
made a record that could not be dn
plicated when she encircled the globe
in 0 days, but she would have had
her eves opened had she been fortu
nate enough to have been one of the
excursionists who took advantage of
the "Trip Around the World" ar
ranged for last night by the ladies of
the first iUetbodist church. Only
two hours was consumed in covering
the wide stretch of land and sea, and
one was not obliged to hustle particu
larly, either, being allowed to tarry
-JO minutes at each city and enjoy the
hospitality of the inhabitants, shak-
ng hands with the dignitaries and
taking a bite of something to appease
the feelings of the inner man, which
would become considerably sharpened
by the whizzing ride through the
brisk evening air over the pavement
in omnibuses. Such a happy and
uniformly good-natured crowd of
tourists is seldom enceuntered
Everybody seemed to know everybody
else and with the cordial greetings
that were extended to the trarvelers

tries and the excellent accommoda
tions provided, the trip was made
A Great Success.
It provea one of the most unique
and successful affairs ever given in
Kock Island under the auspices of a
church. Its purpose was to raise
fundi with which to assist in paying
for the new parsonage that the Meth
odists are having erected for their
pastor, Ker. C. O. McCulloch. Up

undertaking. And the ladies who
planned the entertainment have rea

At London the visitors were ushered
into the royal court, receiving, a sweet
smile aud bow from Oueen Victoria
and ladies of her court and the Prince
of Wales. In entering into the pres
ence of her royal highness, who was
seated upon her throne, it was neces
sary to pass beneath swords hell

stalwart aud appropriately uni

AH ATTEMPTED EXPLANATION.
State's Executive Makes a Ituncllnff
Job Worse by Trying to Say What
He Meant to Say Accused of Exhib

The disparaging reference indulged
in by Gev. Tanner in the course of his
remarks at the Harper house Thurs
day evening, apropos of the War witn
Spain, and the insignificance alleged
by him of the battles on Cuban soil.
to say nothing of his slighting allu
sion to those who gained fame in those
battles, has aroused indignation all
over the state. In Chicago the gov
ernor has already been called to ac
count for his surprising statements.
and he has made an attempt at an ex
planation which will be amusing to
those who heard his expression of sen
timent. The Tribune of this morning
Gov. Tanner was at the Great
Northern hotel yesterday. He stopped
here on his way from Rock Island,
where he visited the new insane asy
lum Thursday, to Springfield, for
which city he left late last night.
When his attention was called to the
speech he made at Rack Island, in
which he was reported as saying the
battle of San Juan would hardly have
been considered a skirmish in the civil
war and that the only purpose served
bv that and other battles of the war
with Spain was to make a few heroes,
he said :
" 'The statement regarding the bat
tle of San Juan is substantially cor
rect so far as it goes, but the infer
ence to be derived from the brief pub
lished account of my speech is alto
gether erroneous. I did not intend to
east any reflection on the men engaged
in that battle, and made the compari
son for the purpose of illustrating how
greatly this country has grown since
the civil war, that it should be able to
vanquish so easily a country like
Spain, and that it is so strong that it
does not need to enter any alliance
with England or any other power.'

the governor of Illinois making any
such statement. Illinois made a re
markable record duringthe campaign.
and if Gov. tanner indulged in any
criticism whatever he was indiscreet.
He certainly showed bid taste, for he
wanted to go of a brigadier general.
" -If Gov. Tanner wanted to please
the veterans of the civil war by belit
tling the work of our soldiers in the
last war, he would not receive the
support of the G. A. R. veterans,

The Price of a Suit
Of clothes is not always the true expression
of its worth. It is "equally true that a
really good suit of clothes cannot be sold for
less than a certain sum. If you pay less,
and when 3'ou get down to a" certain point
what you get is worth nothing and veiir
money might as well have Ikjcii thrown
the street. Clothes bearing this lalel
the best made iu the world.
Twe STEIN-iJIvOCH Co.
The price range is adapted to every purse,
and each price represents just what twice
the amount would buy of made to measuro
clothes. In buying these garments you get
sterling values for your money, and thu
price is held down just as low as good
clothes can be made for. If you seek to
save a few dollars by cheaper garments you
get worthless ones and all is wasted. We know this so perfectly
well that without hesitation we say we will give you back your
money if you are dissatislied.
