Last evening was another hummer
at the industrial fair. Camp 26, M.
W. A., had charge of the program and
the crowd was well entertained. The
first number was an exhibition of club
swinging by Capt. Samuel Davis.
Then followed an exhibition drill
by the foresters1 team which elicited
frequent applause. After Ben Imhof
had performed a number of difficult
tricks on a bicycle, H. A. Potter gave
a whistling solo.
Lastly came a competitive drill by
the foresters for a medal which was
held by Sergt. Hackett. Capt. L. E.
Hemenway was judge, and as each
member made a mistake he dropped
out of the ranks. The medal was
awarded to Maurico Do Kay. Tonight
is German night and the Moline Tur
ners will give an exhibition.

KEV. NEWLANDS MAY BOWL:
The members of the Congregational
church cf Stillman Valley, III., de
clare untrue the reports that their
fastor. Rev. R. W. Newlands, former
y of Port Byron, resigned because of
their objection to his devotion to the
rime of bowling. John A. Atwood,
clerk of the church, sends tbe Chicago
Tribune the following:
"The Congregational church of
Stillman Valley, 111., desires to con
tradict certain statements recently
published regarding its pastor, Rev.
R. W. Newlands, and to state that
they are without foundation. Mr.
Newlands resigned entirely on his
own volition, having received a call to
a church in the east,- and instead of

Mayoral Situation Grows
Republican leaders of the Fourth and
Seventh wards met last night and
fixed up slates that the voters of their
party are supposed to stand by next
week whether they like the complexion
of them or not.
The po3toQi3e was very mush in
evidence at both gatherings, a sudden
spurt of activity that is probably ac
counted for in the near approach of
the expiration of the term of the pres
ent postmaster, who naturally expects
to be retained four years longer.
The Fourth ward seance was held
in a room on the second floor of the
Masonic temple. After Postmaster
T. H. Thomas had been appointed
chairman and M. M. Sturgeon secre
tary, Aid. Charley Willis turned on
his holiday smile and nudged his fel-
I lows that he was there to receive any
j encouragement they might feel dis
I posed to hand him. And so they in-
dorsed Charley for renouiinauon.

Program In the Seventh.
Up in tho Seventh the program
makers got together in tbe old No. 7
school, elected Assistant Postmaster

Then followed a season of speeches,

telling what good police magistrates
they would make, J. W. Tubbs ask
ing support for tne collectorship
nomination, William Lucklum for
assistant supervisor and G. P. Xissen
for assessor. The decision of the
board of education in ordering the re
moval of the old No. 7 school was
criticised. It is the only building
available in the ward for holding
meetings and elections, and it was de
cided to make an effort to havo the
action of the board rescinded.
In some quarters, as a result of last
night's republican meetings, it is
claimed Knox has the lead in the race
for mayor, and while the friends of
the administration are not boasting,
it is understood they are laughing up
their sleeves, and simply ask: tbe un

instance, the Fourth ward delegate

Mr. Atwood himself adds: "While
it is true that Mr. Newlands occasion
ally plays a friendly game of bowling
with tbe yonng men of his congrega
tion, I have never beard him unkindly
criticised by . any one because of his
participating in" this healthful and
popular pastime. He has never been
taken to task by anyone because of
bowling; neither has he had any al
tercation with one of the trustees or
any other person on this account."
