REV. MATEER IS HERE.
Nineteen Years a Presbyterian
Missionary at Wei Hien,
TELLS OP TEOTJBLE IS TEE OBIEST.
Causes Leading Up to the On
slaught on the For
Rev. It. M. Mateer, for 19 years a
Presbyterian missionary at Wei Hien,
China, is the guest of his old class
mate, Rev. W. S. Marqais, pastor of
the Broadway church. He will preach
at the Broadway Sunday morning.
While it is somewhat comforting to
Dr. Mateer to be away from China just
now, when the missionaries of all
denominations are in peril, yet his
absence from his accustomed dnties
at this time is an accident that he
would not hare sought had he known
what was coming, lie is therefore
rather fortune favored in being out
of the country just at the present, and
in October he returns again to hi9
held. "While the district in wbich
I am located. " said Dr. Mateer this
morniDg, "is not in the region f
China so seriously affected by the
Boxer movement, and the Chinamen
in the province are as a whole friend
ly, yet we are not so far from the
scene of the main trouble that it may
not break in, or break out, there at any
time. In fact Germany is just now
beginning operations on a new rail
road that is to invade the territory,
and this may arouse the Boxer sym
pathizers, as anvtbing like foreign
innovation is apt to furnish the sig
nal for revolt and uprising among the
more ignorant and consequently the
more dangerous and more disturbing
Rnmm for Dissensions
Dr. Mateer stated that there are
two distinct reasons for the internal
dissensions among the natives of
China, one of these beiDg the mis
taken way in which a religious de
nomination pursues its cause tnere.
and the other the tendency of an out
side nation to advance its enterprises
without the employment of interpret
ers capable of intelligently informing
the natives as to the intent and object
of their presence in the country. Then
there is an element of Chinese hostuu
to the dynasty, or more particular
ly the dowager empress, who is per
sisting in her control of the throne,
despite the fact that the actual heir,
her nephew, passed his majority sev
eral years ago.
Dr. Mateer comes from a foreign
missionary family. He has two
brothers now in the held in China, one
of whom has been 37 years in the
work, and still another brother died
while in the performance of this
DIFFICULT TO GET JURY.
Only Four Men Accepted In the Jasperson.
Only four of the 12 jurymen needed
to try Charles Jasperson and Charles
Dvnahoo, the alleged grave robbers,
bad been secured at 3 o'clock this af
ternoon. Yesterday counsel for the
defense filed an affidavit objecting to
attaches of the sheriff's office summon
ing talesmen, claiming the officers are
prejudiced against the defendants.
Judge Gest thereupon appointed
Court Stenographer H. D. Blakemore
a special bailiff to hunt up jurymen,
and Mr. Blakemore was out bright
and early this morning summoning
nearly every man he met to report at
9 o'clock sharp at the court room.
HELLO GIRLS ARE RIVALS.
Day Operators to UIt Kzcorslon and
is' lent Operators Trolley Party.
Operators of the Central Union
Telephone company have chosen sides
and are vieing with one another in
the entertainment line. In former
years the girls united in giving their
friends a steamboat ride on the river.
While they are not disbelievers in the
motto that "In union there is
strength." still they feel that there
are enough of them to swing two en
terprises, and to that end have di
vided, the day operators on one side
and the night operators on the other.
The former will have a moonlight
river excursion Thursday of next
week, and the latter will have a trol
ley ride and a dance at the Watch
Tower Tuesday niht. Both the
trolley party and the -excursion are
being boomed as only the hello girls
know how to boom them, and the re
sult will undoubtedly be that both
will be liberally patronized.
Judge Hand oa the Bench.
Judge John P. Hand, of the su

day, and P. G. Rennick, chairman of
the county central committee, took
dinner with him at the depot. Judge
Hand was in the city for nearly two
hours, and was on his way to Spring
field, where he today received his cer
tificate of election as justice of the su
preme conrt of Illinois for the Fifth
district, and was sworn into office.
Judge Hand was, of course, feeling
very good over the result of the elec

Diamond Jo Packets Should Stop Here for
Passengers, at Least.
The Diamond Jo line having made
a number of stops at Bock Island of
Ute for fuel, it is now in order for the
steamers to go still further aad make
the landings and in the proper
manner, too, for passengers. If
the Jo line cannot use the new
warehouse that the present coun
cil has granted to the Acme Packet
company, it can surely touch here for
passengers, for as it has been suggested
people will not perish," and the
company may as well have the benefit
of more passenger traffic from Rock
Island as not by simply caning lor it.
To be sure there are quite a number
of river tourists ticketed from this
city who go to Davenport, but this
number has diminished since it be
came known that Diamond Jo repre
sentatives on that side were abetting
in the opposition to the company
manifesting a spirit of friendliness
toward Rock Island.

Several pupils' recitals have been
given at the academy since it was es
tablished in Rock Island, but on ac
count of the limited room, com
paratively few people had seen
the work of the scholars, nence
the decision of the sisters to
secure the theatre. The result was
an audience that filled every seat in
the house, and an entertainment that
was meritorious in the highest sense
from beginning to end. A feature
that was especially pleasing was the
versatility displayed by the young
ladies, showing a thoroughness ol
training that reflected equal credit on
the student and the tutor.
The exercises opened with a selec
tion by the mandolin club, after which
the salutatory was delivered by Miss
Anna Larkin, a little Rock Island
lady, whose accomplishments as a
reader are well known. The other
numbers were: Vocal solo. "Ava

the musical numbers on the pro

justice to the others taking part in
the entertainment, however, to make
special mention of the singing of Miss

shows an earnestness in her work that
