PLUM FOR SEARLE
Governor Yates Rewards His
Rock Island County Cam
MEMBER OF BOARD OF CLAIMS
I'oaition Psjs S1..100 a Year Prom
Uetl lie Will Not be !!
tarbed by Deneen.
Gov. Richard Yates lias rewarded
the leader of his cause in Rock Island
county in th" recent campaign for the
nomination for chief ex'-cutlre of the
state by appointing Charlea J. BeniM
a member or the Illinois board of
!aims, succeeding J. E. McClure, of
Carllnville-, who resigned some time
;ig to accept the position of commis
sioner of the- Southern penitentiary.
The appointment was announced last
Mr. Searle lias been in Chicago tak
ing in the national republican conven
tion, and will not return home until to
morrow, but from a source that can
be accepted as reliable it is learned
that be will accept the plum tendered
htm, and that there is a further tin-
derataadias 'ia' n" is not 10 ,,e dis"
tarbed in the event lhat Dem-en SUC
eeeaa te the governorship next fall.
;Ue I p Male Joh Receeatljr.
The appointment has come to Mr.
Bearle without any win -pulling, it is
claimed. It will be remembered that
spine few moatba ago be resigned as
president of the board or trustees of
t.ie Macomb Normal school, giving as
hi: reason that it seriously interfered
with Itirn private practice at home. The
school was completed aad la mailing
order aad he felt he had fulfilled his
duty to his stat".
Membership in the board or claims
is worth about S I .r.n per year. Bat
one mrrttnc is held each year, it
continues about six weeks. The board
paaaca oa all claim that are tiled
a aii::! the state and reports them
bach with recommendations to the
general assembly. The oourC eon
vi nes at Springfield oa the third Mon
day r each August.
Vatra Caatrola OatoUc t'ook.
Since the recent convention at
Springfield there has been any amount
or evidence to show thai there is a
compact between the governor and
Deneen, the effect of which is that
Yates is to remain in control of the
patronage outside Cook county. Pe
nceu is to be master in ('imk. Already
hundreds of officeholder in that conn
tj have been deeapitaled by Yates In
cause of their coldness toward him in
his run for renomination, and frieads
of Deneen given the places. Deneen.
Should he be elected in the fall. Is to
keep his bands off In the state out
side cf Cook.
Mr. Searle is understood to have
had a conference with the governor
before giving his consent to accept
ance of the proffered membership in
the board of claims. He could not af
ford to take it if he were to be re
moved after one silting of the board,
but evidently the governor put at rest
any doubts be gjight have felt as to
the permanency m the berth.
This is bad news for the Lowden
delegation from Rock Island count y
that neglected to- climb in the hand
wagon in the recent convention at
THE CLIFF DWELLEES AT
THE ST. LOUIS EXPOSITION
The cliff dwellers of Colorado, New
Mexico and the gn a: southwest hare
been bodily ransferred to the world s
fair. Their exhibit is today regard
ed by tho.se who have lcen fortunate
enough to visit the- out -of t he-way re
gion where these strange people
dwell as the most interesting of all the
so-called human spectacles now to be
ecu In St. Louifj In this display we
tind a reproduction of the famous
Battle Rock mountain which rises out
or the- desert in Colorado near the
Utah line. At the world's fair this
Battle Roek miniature and the repro-
iuc-tion or the surrounding mountain
ous country have been given over to
the elifT dwellers themselves, some
three hundred Moki and Zuni Indians,
who, in the heart cr the e-ity
of St. Louis, are living their
lives over again precisely as the trav
eler fin is tluin In th ir native coun
They have cut the ir homes -into this
imitation roek and here the visitors
can sie tlie-iu pursuing their daily avo
cations. They have brought with them
their instruments or warfare; their
picturesque clothing :uid implements,
md in the museum attached to the
lift dwellers exhibit there are mum
mies so oM that the- best instructed in
such matters refuse to declare when
Lhls outward form of man existed in
he unknown yesterday. They show
heir methods or grinding and reaping,
and use the same b moke-stained ves
sels for cooking that are used thou
sands id Utiles away from their pres
ent place of lire. There are in tliisnrouj)
of 300 .Moki and Zuni Indians, medi
cine nun. chiefs, and a whole aborigi
nal kindergarten or little childre n who
have remarkably adapted themselves
to lire in a big city, which, in all hu
man probability, they will never agaiti
see. for at the close of the exposition
they must go back to the ir c liff dwell
ings in the Colorado desert.
Connected with the c iifi dwellers ex
hibit is a Mokl theatre. Like all the
simple font of the desert, the Mokis
have their insniration which they act
out In a series of play? and other formf
of theatrical entertainment, and iney
conclude these with the most remark
able of all exhibitions, the famous
snake dance in which a number of
medicine men and chiefs take part in
the portrayal of this wonderful cere
mony, the unparalleled pageant of the
Pueblo Indians of Tusayan. Ariz., to
see the original of which would take
the ordinary traveler thousands of
miles from his home and compel the
expenditure of thousands of dollars.
The Indians here do not use any
make-believe snakes, but the actual
serpents, which they handle with a
freedom calculated to chill the blood
o fthe Caucasian. These venomous
serpents have a deep signficance for
these aborigines. This dance takes
place in the desert country of New
Mexico, on the 25th of August, and
continues until the precise moment
when the medicine men can predict
with unfailing certainty the annual
rainfall of the region. How these wiz
ards of the sky. by their wierd incanta
tions, draw the water of the clouds
down to earth can be well understood
when the ceremony itself is witnessed,
as is here shown in the cliff dwe llers.
The are a handsome race of clean
limbed savages, who. far above any
other aborigines, testify by their very
demeanor an ancestry that stretches
as far. if not farthe r than the Egyp
tians mentioned in the- sacred writings.
For educational associations that have
come- to the world's lair, the dirt" dwell
ers exhibit has proven absolutely
untune. The children among the
tribes are a source of never ending
entertainment to old ami young alike.
The boys and girls watch with fase-i
nation the war dances er the Mokis.
and people or mature- minds are lost
in admiral ion in contemplating the
handicrafts of these wonderful sav
ages. Their dwellings are open for
inspection at all times, and as they are
built one above the other hundreds of
feet from the ground, we- j;re struck
hy the fact that no matter what the
surroundings may be, human nature
has maintained its sameness from cen
tury to century back to the elawn of

CELEBRATION FOR CHILDREN
Marking Close of School Term
Shoot let the Feature.
A new king and queen will be
crowned today at Huber's garden at
the annual binl shoot and children's
picnic of the l'lattdeutschen Schwes
tern. It is an outing provided for the
young folks marking the close cr their
school work Tor the term. They are
the children of the members of the
Schwestern. and the mothers have
charge or the picnic.
The children and their mothers
marched from Turner hall this morn
ing following Seconei avenue from
Sixteenth to Twentieth streets, thence
south to Firth avenue, and east to the
garden. They were led by Blotter's
Kcvh. Rldea in i hariota.
At the heael of the procession in
improvised chariots, garlanded with
tlajis and Sowers, rode the kinii and
queen ol last year's shoot, Master
KYanck. sem ef Clans Franck. and
.Miss Bckermann, the daughter of Wil
liam Bckermaaa. There were 150
boys ami girls in line. The girls came
first, marching three abreast, two
larger ones hearing a floral arch un
der which walked a smaller girl, all
nattily attired in white dressts. The
boys walked two abreast and each
bore a decorated cane.
The bird shoot is a custom brought
rrom the fatherland, where it is made
one er the Important restivals of the
spring. While the celebrations in this
country are not on such large scale,
owing to lack of numbers, still they
are entered into with the- same en
thusiastic spirit, ami each year grow

The shooting feature creates keen
rivalry among the children, all of
whom are expected to compete. There
are two contests, one each for the

tance. Tlie- boy and girl first to knock
off the heael of the bird are declared

prizes for the king and queen are a

IOWAN CLAIMS TO HAVE
I. W. Fowler, receiver of the Illinois
& Iowa Coal company at Ottumwa.
Iowa, claims to have discovered
George B. Cortelyou, chairman of the
national republican committee. Some
thing less than a score or years ago
Mr. Fowler was in New York. He had
been at the postoflice and went from
there to the office oi a friend. As he
went in he met a man coming down
the steps, who seemed to be in the ut
most distress of mind and as though
life had ost all its sweetness. Hi- was
discouraged and desperate.
His appe-aranee attracted the at
tention of Mr. Fowler, who inciuired
who he was. His friend replied that
it was George B. Cortelyou, one of the
best stenographers in New York, who
was out of luck, out of money, out of
friends and with his wife and children
would be put out of his house the next
day. Mr. Fowler happened to know a
postofftc inspector who needed a re
ally good stenographer and he went
after Cortelyou and with him to the
postoflice. Corte lyou got the job. Next
he was moved to Washington, and
went steadily up the ladder, finally
ileitis made secretary to President
McKlnley and coming into especial
prominence when McKinley was shot
down in Buffalo.
Needless to say. when Mr. Fowler
visits Washington, Mr. Cortalyou fin.is
time to make his visit pleasant.

KNACK IN BUYING PEARLS:
HED WING A GREAT CENTER.
Red Wing's fanu which of course is
a great big splash to those who claim
the city as their Home-, has reached
far away in ripples that extend even
to New York, in at least one particular,
that of Mississippi pearls, says the
Red Wing Republican.
Tbe 1psi few days has produce-d an
unusual influx of pearl buyers. B. Gold
tr.an. of Prairie- du Chien, which Is only
nominally a mailing point, as he hails
from New York, is the most familiar
party among the river folks and
those- who pursue the festive clam to
With his genial smile ami expansive
person he can produce that atmos
phere only in which can satisfactory
business be done.
After a short visit from him a clam
camp is as short of pe-arls as a chick
en is ol' teeth. Besides, Mr. Goldman,
who is in Red Wing on his second vis
it this season, Charles V. Miller, also
of New York, is on the ground or the
waier. in this instance. A third here
is Anthony Hope, and the clamtners
say then- are- more to follow.
Pearl buying is a science. Not onl)
must a man be an accurate judge of
pearls, whose price- varies with eacli
shade- of color and degree of round
ness but he must be able to lower the
thousand-dollar estimate or the clam
digger to the- stern reality of a hundred-dollar
price without making the
owner think it is the- buyers' fault thai
there i.; a defect in the pearl.
Then. too. buying is not all. The
Hammers must be round, scattered as
they are- in a hundred and one differ
ent place s in creek, slough, back chan
nel, lake and rive-r.
The wise buyer doesn't bargain with
his pilot. He- gives him a "five'' and
says: "I want to go where I can get
pearls; .uive- me I've- dollars' worth."
And he gets the pearls, while- his clos
er competitor who has the- price- of
the be-st boat ami so much per hour for
the rowing all figured out. sees the
beauties of the riven- and bank. He
has forgotten to pay for the "know
