Condition of Porto Rico Worse
Than When Under Span
The appearance of Judge N. E.
Worthington, of Peoria.at Harper's the
atre last eveningdrew a splendid audi
ence, ihe speech, while not lacking
in rhetorical strength, was essentially
sensible, clear and convincing.
The marching corps of the Bryan
and Stevenson Anti-imperialistic
club made its banner turnout, having
over 125 men in line. It assembled at
headquarters at 8 o'clock and, headed
by Bleuer's band, marched east to
Eighteenth street and north to the
ferrv landing, where 0 members of
the Scott county marching club dis
embarked and joined the procession
at the head. I he line of march To I
lowed was south on Eighteenth street
to Third avenue, east to Twentieth
street, north to Second avenue, and
west to the theatre. At the Harper
house tne speaker s carriage fell in
line. All along the way the streets
were crowded, the throng surging into
the street and hindering the evolu
tions of the marchers. The marching
club from Davenport appeared in
white suits with nickled helmets, and
their various formations were executed
with the promptness and precision
coming from long and careful drill.
1. J. Medill was chairman of the
evening, lhe Bryan ana btevenson
Glee club, consisting: of Messrs. Dav-
enpoat, Welsh, Sherwcod and Corken

number and took so well that it was
Administration's Change of Ileait.
Judge Worthington, on being intro
duced, began with a reference to the
remarkable change of heart exhibited
by the administration in the last two
years, lie quoted from the public
utterances of both of the republican
candidates to show where they stood
formerly, and compared those views
with the ones now urged.. The
speaker then dished up Mr. McKinley
and Mr. Roosevelt in a manner so or
iginal and so forcible as to bring down
a storm of applause.
laking up the question of the Phil
ippines, the judge stated the course
that should have been pursued by this
vernment, and showed that that
course is now recommended by the
democratic party. The conquest that
is now being waged without the dec
laration of war by congress and with
out tne wui or tne people being con
sulted is inexcusable on every ground.
least of all upon that cf a desire to
spread the christian faith. When
American soldiers landed in the isl
acds the natives had accomplished a
revolution and had the Spaniards
cooped up in Manila. Ihe aa
ministration has played the part of a
conhdence swindler toward them and
now asks as a reward to be returned
to Washington for four years more.
As to our constitutional rights in
the matter, the speaker quoted Daniel
Hebater and llliam 11. beward to
show that a colonial policy is an im
possibility without a direct violation
of the terms of that instrument.
Public Opposed to Philippine War.
The war in the Philippines begets
no enthusiasm, ihe heart of the
people is not in it. Imagine our sol
diers there going into battle singing
The Battle Hymn of the Republic!"
It would be rankest blasphemy in
The judge produced indisputable
authority bearing him out in the
statement that the condition of Porto
Rico is worse now than under Spanish
rule and that the natives regret that
thev did not resist the invasion of
United States troops. After clearlv
expounding the harmful character oi
every variety of trust and pointing
out the exceedingly meagre probabil
ity of the republican party doing any
thing to hamper the forces that" con
trol it, the speaker closed with the
recommendation of a simple remedy
of democratic "osone" at Washing
ton and a tribute to the .democratic
nominees that brought the audience
to its feet in vociferous applause.

&ENEY chaeged with violence
In Attempting to Defeat the Will
of the Majority Evidence
The much-aired contest between M.
J. McEniry and J. H. Andrews for
the place on the ticket a3 democratic
candidate for minority representative
in the Thirtv-third senatorial district
of Illinois was placed in the hands of
Judges Adams and Turner, of Rock
Island and Henry counties respec
lively, at 9 o'clock last evening, at
which time E. D. Sweeney made the
closing argument for Mr. McEniry.
The judges were in session till
midnight and met again this morning,
but failed to come to a decision
Judge Turner was compelled to go
home today and left on the 8:05 train
for .Cambridge. A meeting will be
held before Monday, which is the last
dav on which a decision can be handed
in, and Judge Adams feels that there
will be no difficulty in arriving at
Jahns With Henry County.
The Henry county faction failed to
locate Leo Deisenroth yesterday after
noon, so L. O. Jahns was put on the
stand. Mr. Jahns had Deisenroth
proxy. On cross-examination he ad
mitted having attended the populist
congressional convention at Galva
but said he had taken no part in the
proceedings and had urged the aban
donment of the attempt to run a pop
ulist candidate. He declared he had
no aspirations to be a candidate for
minority representative on the demo
cratic ticket when he felt that Kocfc
Island county hid no right to the
After Mr. Ryan had been recalled to
testify on the Henry county conven
tion, Judge Wilson announced that
the evidence of Henry county was all
in, and A llaam McEniry was put on
the stand in rebuttal. He explained
how the delegates had been selected
at the Rock Island county convention.
and was followed by Mr. Waller, of
Kewanee. who said that no alternates
had been Chosen at the Henry county
convention. Judge Adams ruled
against an attempt to bring in further
evidence in regard to the senatorial
convention, and Mr. McEnirv's attor
neys said they had nothing further to
Majority Should Rale.
It was then 5 o'clock and a quarter
of an hour later William McEuirv be
gan the pleadings, consuming half an
hour and covering the salient points
of the contention of his side. He con
tended that the question was whether
the minority had the right to thwart
the will of the majority by fraud and
sharp practice and read irom various
authorities to show that the will of
the majority is supreme. Mr. Pleas
ants here interrupted to admit that
the majority should rule, but said
Rock Island delegates were not in the
majority. Mr. McEniry concluded
with the declaration that violence had
been used against his colleagues and
that they were not bound to face
danger to complete their business.
Mr. rleasants, in presenting Mr.
Andrews' case, insisted that the
proxies should not be considered as
delegates and claimed that one of
Hock Island's regular delegates was for
Andrews. This would give each man
13 supporters in the convention. He
declared 'that Mr. McEnirv's followers
had bolted from the organization that
they had recognized in various ways,
that they had started all disorder and
were legally suppressed.
An Evening Session.
The arguments of Judge Wilson
and Mr. Sweeney were heard at an
evening session. The former took up
his half hour in a general review of
the case, bringing out few new points,
and indulging in a good deal of chaff
at the expense of democrats in gen
eral and the contestants in particu
lar. He felt moved to explain. his con
nection with tie case and his action
in taking a seat on the platform at a
djmocratic meeting in Moline Wed
Mr. Sweeney made the closing ar
gument. After chiding Judge llson
for his light treatment of the case he
reviewed Mr. McEuiry's contentions,
adding a point here and there, and
closed urging the necessity for care
ful consideration by the judges.

secretary of state bear the names of
