COME HOME HAPPY
Woodmen of Rock Island and M

FEEL THEY WERE WELL TREATED
The Handicap as to the Next
State Meeting Location Kan
sas Heard From.
The delegates and other citizens of
Rock Island and Moline who attended
the state camp, M. W. A., at Peoria
returned home last night. The rep
reseutatives of both cities were happy
over the result of the state camp as
far as the interests in which they
were particularly interested are con
cerned. Rock Island was naturally
proud of the exceptional compliment
paid Maj. C. W. Hawes in his rem
dorsement by acclamation for the
office of head clerk in a convention in
which there were so many varyjng
interests and, unavoidably under such
circumstances, so much friction at
times. Moline was elated over the
success of Dr. Kerns for Illinois head
physician after a hard fight. There
was no disappointment on tbe part of
Rock Island over the location of the
next state head camp. As has buen
already told, the city was peculiarly
handicapped and could not, under the
prevailing situation, appear ' in the
light of being a candidate. Having
the head onice here, whno a great
eard in the city's favor, nevertheless
opened the way to the charge that too
much was being asked, unless the
matter was carefully handled. Then.
too. Rock Island having the head
clerk, against whom there was no
suggestioVof opposition, it was real
ized that there must be no tight
raised in behalf of a question of con
But the point that meat affected the
local situation was that involving the
candidacy of Dr. Kerns, of Moline, for
reelection: Dr. Kerns was charged to
Rock Island, too, and any effort that
would nave been made in behalf ot
any other claim from this locality
would until his success was assured,
have been disastrous to him. Such a
misfortune no one from K'jck Island
was desirous oi causing, in fact
Rock Island went to Peoria loyal to
Dr. Kerns' cause, and was unwilling
to make any move that would jeopar
dize him.- It was therefore necessary
to defer any step toward securing the
camD until tbe election oi hend physi
cian had passed at 1 o'clock yester
day. ' -
Bock Island's Nice Ovatljo.
In the meantime Bloomington, De
catur, Chicago, Springfield and Cairo
bad been hustling for a day and a
half, and all that Rock Island could
do was to extend a heartv invitation
to the Illinois state caniD to hold it a
next biennial session in the city
where the head omze is located, lhe
fact was mide clear that there was to
be no fight for the honor a? far as
Rock Islaul was concerned, but that
the city would esteem it an honor to
have the convention held here.
There was less than an hour to set up
tbe city's position, and yet when tbe
convention came to vote on tbe loca
tion question, Rock Island received
the greatest oration of any city sug
gested. The invitation was presented
by W. 1 Klein, of Pike county, one of
the best Known and most popular
Woodmen of the state, and seconded
by Hon. George M. Boyd, of Chicago,
formerly of Davenport, who, despite
tbe fact that bis own city was a can
didate, was happy in the opportunity

city that has the head office of a great

As stated in yesterday's dispatches,
the Rock Island county delegates to
the St. Paul head camp are: . Dr. J. F.
Myers, and James McNamara, of
Rock Island; ' M. J, McEniry,
of Moline, and W. H. Wenks, of
Andalusia. The alternates are Miles
Skinner, of Watertown; F. S. Cool, of
Cordova; B. C. Woods, of EJgington,
and J. is. uakleal, of Moiine. Fred tr.
White, of Pontiac, was elected state
consul; William Grove, of Macoupin
county, state clerk, and W. F. Albcrt

The Iowa state camp yesterday
elected Jerry Green, of Davenport,
state head consul.
Kansas Heard From.
A letter to The Ak;us from Wich
ita. Kas., states that the Kansas head
camp, in session there yesterday,
adopted the following resolution,
which . has a significant ring to it:
"Whereas, The delegation from Kan
sas to the last head camp, by resolu
tion unanimously adopted, pledged its
support to the reelection of the head
officers then composing the executive
council of our order, and in return so
licited from the executive council the
reappointment of Neighbor J., G
Johnson, of our state, to his position
as general attorney; and, whereas,
said delegation faithfully kept its
pledge and each of said head officers
received the unanimous support of
our state delegation in said bead
camp; and, whereas, at the first meet
ing of said executive council following
said head camp, four of its members,
disregarding the request of our state,
and as we believe, the unanimous
wish of our order, used their power
as a majority of said executive coun
cil and refused to reappoint our Kan
sas neighbor to his position, but gave
it to one of their own number. Now
therefore be it resolved. That this
state camp protest against and de
nounce said action by said four head
officers as unfraternal, unneighborly
and unjust, an insult to the Kansas
neighbors, and an unwarranted and
undeserved reproach to as capable
and valuable an official as ever served
the Modern Woodmen of America."
Two Theatre Prepositions.
G. If. Johnston, who is promoting
the new theatre project in Rock Is
land, and C. II. Deere, of Moline. each
have propositions before tbe Moline

erection of a play house there. '; Mr.
Johnston's terms are the same as
thoso adopted here. Mr. Daere sug
gests that a seat sale canvass be
undertaken and the subscriptions
turned over to the one submitting the
best plan for a theatre. The associ
