Enumerators Have a Meeting:
Today at Carse Build"
A school of instruction for the Rock
Island census enumerators, whfl are
to begin their canvass tomorrow, was
held this morning at the Carse build
ing. E. H. McKown acted as chair
man of the meeting. The written in
structions from headquarters were
carefully read and discussed so that
the enumerators thoroughly under
stand their duties.
The Rock Island enumerators are:
First ward, Edwin B. McKown. Mil
dred Warnock; Second ward, Helen
J. Folsuin. Albert li. Zeis: Third
ward, Mrs. Elizabeth Dirt, Jennie A.
Johnston; Fourth ward, Oscar L An
derson, Mrs. Jessie W. Birrett; Fifth
ward, James C. Jacobs. Mamie A.
Smith; Sixth ward, John T. Stephens,
ellie J. Irougb; Seventh ward, A
(. Bersell aud John A. Bexell.
Frank W. Welch has been appointed
enumerator for the factory district in
Rock I -laud.
Another meeting will be held next
week, when W. C. Galloway, of Alcdo,
district supervisor, will le present.
Mrs. Jessie . Barrett, one of the
citv enumerators, has received in
structions which settles a question
that has been in dispute among the
local enumerators, and which is to
the effect that this supervising dis
trict will be known as No. I aud not
No. 47, as some have been inclined to
Moiittiet All Nanui.
One thing that was ollicially im
pressed upon the enumerators this
morning and a matter it is of tue ut
most importance was that nobody
must be omitted. To fulfill this re
quirement is not only a duty imposed
upon the enumerators, but apart from
it they should feel a sense of pride in
the city that they doubtless will to
make a showing of population honest
and of full merit.

Gcucseo. May 2'J. Editor of Tun
Ak;i s: I notice in Ijik Ai:;is
the statement that the Henry
county democrats had made no
choice for minority representative.
which I wish to inform you is not
correct. On the vote of not allowing
the first delegates (Mulligan dele
gates), selected at Kewanee to take
part in voting ou the temporary or
ganization, the vote standing 10S fur
exc luding to ;0 against, Hon. Jonas
Olson (Andrews) was elected tem
orary chairman ; also in submitting
the iirt of delegates to tho senatorial
convention every delegate of the 12
selected is an Andrews man. All
were the personal choice of Mr. An
drews, and were accepted by the con
vention without a dissenting vote.
This convention was controlled by
the Andrews faction by a large ma
jority, ami when the Mulligan forces
sw they were beat, they asked to be
let down as easy as possible. I hope
Rock Island county will not try and
change the precedent of long stand
ing existing between the two coun
ties, or we may have another Ken-worthy-I'iatt
contest, which took
place a number of years ago, when
Rock Island county tried to take the
nomination from Henry county, when
they were entitled to the same by pre
cedent. I may attcDd your county conven
tion June 6 at Hock I.-land and should
I come down, I will call on you.
Regards to you and all my old
democratic friends. I am respect
fully yours, William llottT.

GEN. BLACK'S ADDRESS.
Feature of Memorial Kzerclsea at Kock
The event of the Memorial day cer
emonies at the national cemetery at
Rock Island arsenal yesterday after
noon was the address of Gen. John C.
Black, of Chicago.
He spoke of the significance of Mem
orial day, the "Nation's Sabbath," the
day above all others when hearts beat
with the true patriotic fervor as the
memory of the deeds of the soldiers
of the Go's como with redoubled t-irve
to the American mind. Patriotism is
now as it was then, the greatest force
in the life and being of a nation. It
is the indefinable feeling which
causes tho heart to thrill at the very
name "America, " tho sublime passion
which makes the nation's tlag as it
rises from the earth the grandest
thing in the whole world. It was
this patriotism that brought the sol
diers together by hundreds of thou
sauds at the first tap of the drum
when the nation was threatened with
strife which might tear it asunder.
The people had grown to love their
country, purchased by blood shed for
liberty by their fathers. 1 hey said
to themselves "this country has been
our cradle, and if it need bo it shal
bo our grave, but wherever we die
one Hag shall lloat above our tomb."
They determined calmly end rever
ently, with more reverence that fills
the country today, that the graves of
Washington and Hamilton should find
a sepulchre in the breast of a united
"We are a united country, said
(ien. Ulack. When tho new troubles
darkened the horizon of this country
two years ago, the boys of Iowa and
the boys of Florida, the boys of Geor
gia and the boys of Illinois, lifted up
their voices with the cry, 'We are the
free sons of a free country and aie
ready to go wherever our country
sends us.' It was worth something
to see a scene of that kind. You sol
diers did not dream as you fought one
another in the south that while you
yet lived, your sons, side by side.

Yet, so it is, and it is hard to tell
