THE ARGUS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1003.
I In the fall of 1895 1 -contracted that fear
ful disease. Blood Poison. It gained such
headway that I wu forced to resign my
position and seek relief at Hot Spring.
After spending all the means I had I went
to ilemphu. In less than three weeks I
was in a hospital, and after nine weeks of
suffering I was discharged as cured. In
less than a month every tone In my body
seemed tq be affected and felt as if they
would break at the least exertion. Again
I was compelled to resign, and I returned
t't the hospital for a seven weeks stay.
When I came out I was advised to try
farming. When I first went on the farm I
prevailed on the only firm who handled
drugs to get me one dozen bottles of S. S.
S. At that time both of my hands were
broken out with blisters and I wag covered
vi:h boils and sores. In the meantime my
druggist had gotten two dozen bottles of
S. S. S. for me and I began Jts use, and
after taking the thirteenth bottle ndt a
bo re or boil was visible. R. B. Foweia.

Independent Voters' Club Acts
WILL HOLD A MASS MEETING
Illinois Theatre is Engaged For Next
Saturday Evening Reso
At a meeting of the Independent
Voters' club held Saturday evening to
consider tbe advisability of calling a
meeting of the citlsens and Independ
ent voters of the Thirty-third senator
ial district to protest against the rul
ing of Atorney General Stead in re
gard to the marking of the ballots at
the last regular election relative to the
ejection of George V. McCaskrin to
the state legislature, it was decided
to rent the Illinois theatre next Satur
day njght for the purpose of hea'ring
Lbe facts in relation to the election
contested by George A. Cooke, tho
democratic nominee. The following
resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, In accordance with the
statutes governing the duties of the
county clerk, where it is expressly pro
vided that he shall submit to the
judges of each and every voting pre
cinct in the county printed instructions
to be tacked up" for publie Inspection
for the benefit of the voters; such
instructions were distributed and were
tacked up at every polling place; and.
Whereas. The voters of Rock Island.
Mercer and Henderson counties, in
compliance with and pursuant to such
instructions governing the marking
of the ballot for the election of repre
sentatives, placed a cross in the square
opposite the name of George W. Mc
Caskrin. in order that such cros
would indicate their intention to cast
three cotes for Georgo- W. McCaskrin
and would give the eaid Independent
candidate three votes; therefore, be it
Thrrr Votra Intended.
Resolved, That such other and fur
ther steps be taken by the committee
appointed at this meeting, consisting
of seven members as will fully advice
the election committee of the genera",
assembly whose duty It is to pass ypon
the contested election before them of
Cooke vs. McCaskrin, and to fully -inform
the general assembly of the in
tent of the voters of the Thirty-third
district to give three voters to said
McCaskrin. Having been advised by
Attorney General Hamlin, that if they
placed their cross in the square pre
ceding the name of the independent
candidate, that it would count three
votes, which is in conformity with the
statutes of the state of Illinois, and
that we use this method to show how i
we voted and to advise the public that
we are not satisfied to have our will
thwarted by subsequent opinion from
the same office. It amounts to the dis
franchisement of the voters; and this
protest will advise the public that sub
sequent rulings of this character are
in their nature retroactive and will
work a great injustice as a precedent
In the future.
The parquet will be reserved for the
seating of the ladies and an invitation
is extended to them to hear and con
sider the proiHsition that is to be
placed before the public for considera
tion. Outsiders will be invited to par
ticipate, and every effort will be made
to condemn any procedure that will

maker. Rock Iik-nd and Davenport citizens
ill take a greater interest in the pro
ceedings against Johann Hoch, the
low famous bigamist, from the fa-t
:hat some years ago he was in Dav
anport with a company of Chicago
singers, and while there made attempts
.0 win the affections of two Davenport
women. It was during the Saenger
fest in 1S98, which was attended by
jolly -companies of fingers from all
$art6 of the northwest.
Hoch came down with a party from
Chicago, and whilo the others made
efforts to secure hotel accommoda
tions, he asked for private boarding
for the week, and rented rooms from
a widow. Mrs. Schreiver, of Third and
Ripley streets. He was a very at
tractive fellow and bright and pleasant
about the home. He tried to win tht
affections of Mrs. Schreiver. who had
property worth about $15.00.
Tuna to Stepdaughter.
In this he failed, and realizing hi.
failure, he began paying attentions to
Mrs. Sehrelver's stepdaughter, Miss
Hannah Schleuter, who still residis
in Davenport, and conducts a dress
making establishment in the Unter
den Linden apartments. He was
more successful with the modiste,
and had it not been for the objections
of Mrs. Schreiver, Miss Schlueter
might now be included in the list of
Hoch's victims. She found Hoch very
agreeable, but by that time the step
mother began to be suspicious, and
protested vigorously. Her objection
prevailed and Hoch returned to Chi
cago unsuccessful in his attempt to
secure a Davenport wife.
This Davenport Saengerfest was one
of the great events of DavcnjKjrfs
Turner history, and the records were
well "preserved. They show Johann
FlfiCh's registration, and his lioardiug
place during the week of the festival.
Mrs. Schreiver died some years ago,
but Miss Schlueter v!un questioned
by friends remembered Hoch well, and
told of her experiences with him.
IMcturca Are Uecoiilzed.
He was such a prominent figure
among the Chicago company that he
was remembered readily by Prof.
Theodore R. Reese, of Davenport, who
directed the choruses of the festival
at that time. Hoch was fond of Rock
Island, and several times during the
week he spent at Davenport he was
one of a party who visited this city's
saloons, and furnished merry music
during the evening. When his pictures
were published in the newspapers sev
eral Davenort and Rock Island men
recognized him as one who had been
connected with the Saengerfest.
