"I am not waking any new burdens,

But President Cole, of the league,
who is watching what has been denom

furnish the janitor service: he warn
him that it may be the league's duty
to go to the Sangamon county grand

Mr. Cole also declares that if Mr.

For the first time in the history of
the state a republican governor will

preceded by no Cook county resident,
who was chosen to the highest office
in the gift of the state as a republican.
John P. Altgeld was from Chicago.
but he headed the democratic ticket in
1S92 when he was elected. John L.

came to the office through the resigna
tion of Richard J. Oglesby, who be

Beveridge was elected lieutenant gov
ernor at the same election with Ogles
by. First Ijidy of Slate.
Those who are interested in the so

forward with interest to the installa

executive mansion, with the attendant
possibilities or bringing Springfield so

There is no insinuation in such an

Three I.I t tie Drneena.
Three little Deneens will take the
place at the stately home of the gov
ernor which is to be vacated by the
two daughters of Gov. and Mrs. Yates.
There will stiH be a Dorothy, since
the elder of the two Deneen girls
bears the same name as does the
first-born of the Yates family. Fran
ces is the younger of the Deneens,
while a wholly new and interesting
feature is added to life at the mansion
by the introduction of Master Charles
Ashley Deneen. a typical American
boy, with many of the physical char
acteristics of his father.
The lad Is the eldest or the three
children, and is just at the age where
"animal spirits" predominate. In his
studies he is said to be a bright and
shining light, and when he is at work
it is all work, and when it is play it is
all play. With a whoop and a hurrah,
he received the news that his father
had been nominated at Springfield at
the end of the memorable deadlock.
He was at the head of a band of
followers from the neighborhood just
out of school, and the outfit trooped in
to where his mother was receiving the
congratulations of friends and neigh
bors. When she told him that his
father had won. he led his cheering
cohorts out Into the street and organ
ized an impromptu procession and for
au hour headed the jubilant host. Such
is the younger Deneen. and there is
doubtless a future awaiting him amid
the unconquered fields of juvenile
His two sisters, just as bngnt ana
Intelligent, are more subdued, touow

served mannerisms of their mother.
Both are in school and popular in their
own circle of acquaintances and com
panions. Dorothy is two years young
er than the young man or the house,
and Frances is two years behind her
sister. It is a most interesting trio.
The success that has been achieved
by the governor-elect is a manifesta
tion of what determined personal and
stubborn effort will achieve for the
young man who has an honest desire
to do something for himself. It can
r.ot be gainsaid that had not Charles
Samuel Deneen. with an inborn grit
and a backbone or steel, issued himself
ultimatum while yet a southern Illi
nois youth, that he would not fail and
that he would make sometning out 01

Mr. Deneen is essentially a southern
Illinois product, an "tgypnan uy
birthand education. Though his achiev
ments in winning honor and renown
have had their theatre in Chicago, bt.
Clair county. Just across the Missis
sippi from St. Louis, gave him birth,
and his immediate ancestors were all
intimately associated with the eariy
history, first of the territory and then
or the state.
The name Deneen comes from the
original DeNesne. which signifies little
beyond the fact that the first of the
race came from the French provinces
of Nesne along in he Seventeenth
centurv. The Deneens, who came to
America long" before the Revolutionary
war, are not French, however, but by
intermarriage combine French. Scotch.
Irish and English blood, each strain
or which Is at times apparent in the
personality of the governor-elect.
The first of the race to gain distinc

great-grandfather of Charles S. Den

sound through the southern part of the

residents will remember as one of the
pioneer Methodist ministers of south
Mr. Deneen's father, Samuel H. Den
een was born near Belleville, St.
Clair county, in 1S35, and was brought
up in Lebanon. He graduated from
McKendree college, and after gradua
tion became professor of Latin and
medieval history in that renowned in
stitution, which position he held for
Charles S. Deneen was born May 4,
1SC3, at the home of his uncle, A. W.
Metcalf, at Edwardsville, Madison
county. His parents believed in the
discipline or hard work, and young
Deneen was the benificiary of that dis
cipline. He went through the common
schools and then entered McKendree
college, graduating from the classical
course in 1SS2, and from the law
course in isso. Mr. ueneen is now
one of the trustees of his alma mater.
After his graduation he taught in the
country schools one term near New
ton, Jasper county, and two terms
near Godfrey, Madison county. All the
while he was completing his law stud
les, and late in lS5u determined to
start oi!t for himself, and set out for
Chicago, always the goal of his ambi
tion. Funds Were IjickioR.
He reached Chicago and started to
attend the Union College of Law, but
was compelled to quit after 10 weeks
because of a lack of funds. In at
tempting to acquire a law practice he
was a frequent visitor to the criminal
courts, where, through the influence of
court officials, he was given cases of
poor defendants and sometimes re
ceived a fee, but generally got nothing
more than a shake of the hand and
a mumbled thanks. Then an attorney
in St. Paul offered him a clerkship in
that city, but six months saw him back
This time he sought the advice and
presence of the pastor of an Engle-
wood church whom he had known in
southern Illinois, and from that day
his advancement has been rapid. He
made his home in that vicinity, which
was then outside the city limits of Chi
cago, and through his genial person
ality gained many friends. Meanwhile
the legal prospect was brightening, and
through men who later were his politi
cal allies in the Cook county "ma
chine he gained a satisfactory prac
tice and became associated with legal
firms which have since become noted.
In 1S91 he was married to Miss Bina
Maloney, daughter of James S. Ma
loney. a farmer of Carroll county,
and they have since made their home
in Englewood. on Sixty-third street.
All the while that Deneen was at
tending to his legal and church duties
he was losing none or his rriendships
which he had made, and early in his
Chicago career got into the political
game. One year there was being made
a determined effort to defeat William
Lorimer for the congressional nomina
tion in the old Second district, and
Lorimer needed the town of Lake, not
then a part of the city, and in which
the future governor resided.
Irimer was looking for a compe
tent manager in that territory, and ul
timately Deneen made the fight in his
district for Lorimer and won. The
next year there was a contest between
two factions over the member or the
county committee rrom the same dis
trica. Lorimer played the game quiet
ly, and when it was all over Mr.
Deneen was the committeeman. Short
ly after the town of Lake came into
the city as the Thirtieth ward, and
Deneen was the first ward committee
man. Later he extended his Influence
over the Thirty-first, the adjoining
ward, and for 14 years he has been one
of the influential members of the Cook
county "organization." For 10 years
he has been a member of the state
committee from his congressional dis
trict. Fleeted to I.eUIat ure.
In 1892 he was elected a member of
the Illinois legislature from the Sec
ond district, but served only one term.
In 1895 he was made the attorney for
the drainage board, and appointed as
his assistant Judge McEwen. one of
his earliest partners. In 1896 he re
signed to become the republican candi
date Tor state's attorney, to which he
was elected, and re-elected in 1900,
with a majority over his opponent 10,
000 votes greater than the majority or
McKinley over Bryan.

MA J. AND MRS. CONNELLY IN LAND OF FLOWERS:
ACCOUNT OF PASADENA'S TOURNAMENT OF ROSES
Maj. H. C. Connelly encloses in a
letter from his winter home at Pasa
dena, Calif., the following account of
the tournament of roses recently held
in that delightful clime, realizing that
the contrast in prevailing conditions
here and there at the present time
would afford a source of peculiar in
terest, especially in view of the fact
that many Rock Islanders, like himself
and Mrs. Connelly are enjoying the
land of sunshine and flowers:
Enthusiasm in the annual tourna
ment of roses today gave a substan
tial index to American sentiment. In
the midst of a parade of unparalleled
magnificence, in which beauty was
paramount and splendor regal, the
greatest ovation was reserved for a
company of Japanese infantry. The
brown boys, uniformed in a mixture of
Jap and American uniforms, were
greeted with tremendous applause as
they marched through the streets. -
While "roses" were honored most, all
the flowers that a tropical sun can pro
duce were used to make the tourna
Horses decked with wreaths pranced
in front of floats with gay streamers
carrying Pasadena beauties, who com
peted with nature's offerings in the con
test for attention. Roman heralds with
floral chaplets, contrasted with knights
of the middle ages, Athenians of the
early ages and Puritan fathers.
Pasadena pronounced the tourna
ment the most successful of the Ii
which it had witnessed and prompted.
Its standards are both financial and
Sunday night the city began filling
with visitors. Before sunrise the crowd
began to gather. Every country road
or street brought its line of vehicles.
Electric cars from Los Angeles deliver

eager sightseers. The steam railroads
put all their extra coaches into service.
IRON ARRIVES FOR
ROCK RIVER BRIDGE
Span Over North Branch
Four cars of iron to be used in the
construction of the double span bridge
over the north branch of Rock river
have arrived in the city, and it is ex
pected soon building operations will be
commenced by the Clinton Bridge &
It is planned to have the bridge com
pleted by March 1. This is several
months beyond the original date. It
was hoped to see electric cars running
into Milan by the first of the year. The
Tri-City Railway company has been
ready, but has been held back by the
failure to have the bridge reconstruct
ed. The present bridge is barely strong
enough to hold up the horse car and
other traffic, and the thought of at
tempting to run the heavy motors over
It has never been considered.
There is a new bridge over the south
branch of the river. That was built
last fall. The intervening bridges have
been replanked and strengthened so as
support the motors. The weakness of
the Rock river bridges has been a
stumbling block to interurban projects
also, but promoters have begun toj
warm up since they have learned what
the city has been doing, and it is believ
ed that the coming spring will see one
or more of these lines headed from tbe
east or south In this direction. The Tri-
City Railway company has proffered its
assistance in encouraging these lines
to come to Rock Island, and will make
the same concessions in the use of its
city tracks as has been-done in Dav
enport. .tl:n ;. .

Yet with all these means of transit not
half of those who desired reached Pasa
dena in time to watch the parade.
Only the vaguest estimates could be
given to the numbers. There were
enough, however, to fill every available
bit of space along the long route of
the parade. Human Ingenuity and im
agination were exhausted to make up
the parade. Each float seemed more
gorgeous than the last.
The Hotel Green sent a float which
was marked by its gorgeousness.. A
mass of pink roses carried by a dozen
pink gowned maids, each with an out
rider dressed in pink satin.
Each school in Pasadena had its
Ships, every industrial art, colonial
customs, Parisian millinery, European
splendors all had their floral proto
types. Judged by the iKor standard pf
size, the parade was still an improve
ment on the past. The line of parade
was extended far beyond that of former
years. The old line would scarcely
have been sufficient for the parade at
rest. In Pasadena style the greeting
of the Now Year was splendid. Flow
ers, more flowers and still flowers;
beauty and beauty until one wondered
whether there was any ugliness in the
world; splendor until the eyes satiated
with the dazzle of magnificence, these
were the features of the parade. Beauty
reigned and thousands paid homage as
most earnest devotees.
The only disturbing element of the
festivities was the thought that trou
sands of others who wished to join in
the celebration were delayed by lack
of tranporiation facilities.
At noon the parade was still in pro
press ,-;nd the crowd, almost satiated
with such a display of gorgeousness,
v. as surging towards the scene of more
gorgeous athletic contests, and in the
evening the celebration ends with more
dazzling balls and concerts.
TEN MILLION POUNDS
OF FISH ARE SHIPPED
Great Catch in Illinois River
ing Season Just
Ten million pounds of fish were taken
and shipped from Peoria, Pckin, Ha
vana, Bath and Beardstown during the
past year. Havana leads the list with 4,
000,000 pound and both Peoria and
Pekin are unable to reach this total by
combining their figures.
These figures, together with many
others quite as interesting, will be set
forth .in tie furthcoming report of the
Illinois fish commissioner. The total
cash value of tho product is more than
A marked feature of the business has
been the extraordinary Increase. Since
1897 the increase in the catch and ship
ments has been more than 1,000,000
per year. In 1897 the total was a little
more than 3.000,000 pounds. 'This year
it is more than 10,000,000.
