ONLY TWO SO FAR
Rock Island County Candidates
for Congressional Nom
ination ON THE REPUBLICAN TICKET
and Allen and the
of Strength of
Little change has been noted in the
congressional situation within the last
week, with the exception, perhaps, of
an increase in the work done by the
candidates. Charles J. Searle remains
as the only candidate in Rock Island
and the indications now are that Frank
(J. Allen will be the only one in Moline.
Doth are at work to capture the coun
try, the friends of each believing that
he will carry his own'city.
While the Moline men set forth that
their candidate is one who stands close
to a great mass of laboring men, the
Searle supporters are setting tip the
argument that the Rock Island man
has always been more or less a cham
pion of the rights of ihe laboring man.
and that further he is a man in line
with all of the policies of the presi
de nt: that he has on various occasions
clearly defined his position on trusts
and other industrial questions that are
now at issue in congress.
With only the two men in the race
ihe question of relative support is one
ft much discussion, early in the cam
paign though it is. It is generally set
forth that of the two Allen will have
less resistance in hij own city, but to
offst t tii is is set uj the claim that
Searle will be much stronger in the
country. The Hock Island candidate
made the fight in the last county con
vention against the increase of the rep
resentation of the cities, wresting the
control of the county central commit
tee from the country. Of course, there
are those in the country who were not
moved by this stand, believing that the
fight made was not so much because of
Ihe fact that .the country would lose
control, as it was because a certain
faction in the cities would thus gain
control. While this is heard from some
sections of the country, the general be
1'ef among the Searle supporters is
that the majority of the rural delega
tions will be for him.
The candidacy of Ceorgo C. Rankin,
of .Monmouth, which now seems to be
a certainty, gives some form to the
eampaign in the southern section of
the district. Nearly all of the remain
der of the list of jiossibilil ies mention
ed at first have shown a disinclination
to respond to the call of the candi
dates' roll and are now practically
counted out of it. Henderson comity
has the member of the board of equal
ization, which practically jnits it out of
the running. Hancock has been th
home of Col. Marsh, anod with the in
timation that Senator Merry will not
be a candidate, an end is practically
jnit to a possibility there. Lieut, (lov.
Sherman has been recognized as Mc-
Ionough"s man, but the position he has ,
laketi urns lar indicates that Warren
county will be the nter f the lower
end supjMirt. And Rankin seems to be
the most formidable candidate there.
Mercer ( Irnri I p.
The situation in Mercer county
i-eems to have cleared up somewhat,
and Ihe indications are that Hon. James
McKinney, who has been a member of
Ihe stale committee from the district
for several years, during the last four
on lite executive committee, will have
the field to himself there. States At
torney Graham and Dr. M. G. Reynolds
were both mentioned, but the under
standing now is that they are both out
of the way of McKinney.

Triumphs of Modern Surgery.
Wonderful things are done for the
human body by surgery. Organs are
taken out and scraped and polished
and put back, or they may be removed
entirely; bones are spliced; pipes take
the place of diseased sections of veins;
antiseptic dressings are applied to
wounds, bruises, burns and like injur
ies before inflammation sets in. which
causes them to heal without matura
tion and in one-third the time required
by the old treatment. Chamberlain's
Pain Balm acts on this same principle.
It is an antiseptic and when applied
to such injuries, causes them to heal
very quickly. It also allays the pain
and soreness. Keep a bottle of Paia
Balm in your home and it will save
you time and money, not to mention
the inconvenience and suffering which
such injuries entail. For sale by all

ONLY HOUSE LINCOLN EVER OWNED
The only house that Abraham Lin
coln ever owtied, the one in which lie
lived at Springfield, prior to his in
auguration as president, has been re
produced at the lewis and Clark expo
sition as headquarters for the tate of
Peculiar interest attaches to Lin
coln's Springfield home, because it was
here that Lincoln lived in Ihe happier
days of his life, after his early strug
gles lo gain an education and a liveli
hood, and before the dreadful trials
Incident to his presidency. It was dur
ing his residence in Springfield that
people came to know the human quali
ties that made Ihe man who was to
ruie the destinies of a nation an ex-
cellent neighbor, whose presence made
glad the heart of the community in
which he playej an important part.
Springfield eople knew "Abe" Lincoln
familiarly, and the older citizens still
remember the tall, rawboiu d, ugly- fea
tured man who used to romp with his
boys in the scant front yard.
Comfortable oa 94 a Week.
It was several years after his mar
riage to Miss Mary Todd that Lincoln
Iwjtight his home, and in the interim
he and Mrs. Lincoln boarded at the
Globe hotel, where, as Lincoln wrote
to a friend, "we are very comfortable,
as it costs only four dollars a week."
The house which eventually he bought
was a plain two-story structure, built
after the general style of houses of the
period. The front door opened into a
hail way. from which stairs rose to the
second story, while doors opened from
the hallway into the living rooms on eith
er side. The house was surrounded by a
wall and a picket fence.
When Mr. Lincoln bought the house
it was of the story and a half type, the
chambers on the second floor beins
low. with small windows tinder the
eaves. Mr. Lincoln was practicing law
and. after the custom of the time, he
rode the circuit, attending court in
several counties. On such occasions
he often was absent for several weekf,
and during one of these absences Mrs.
Lincoln had the roof raised, to make
the chambers more comfortable.
Springfield residents delight in telling
of this incident. When the future
president returned to Springfield, he
was found standing on the sidewalk
in front of his home, apparently very
much perplexed over something.
What's the matter?" called a neigh
bor. "Why. I've been wondering." said
Mr. Lincoln, smiling in his inimitable
way. "if I can find some one to tell
me where Abe Lincoln lives. I thought
i knew, but I don't seem to be able to
recognize his house."
fee I do a Weal to C'bareh.
Judge Herndon, who for many years
was Mr. Lincoln's law partner, relates
in his biography of ihe martyred presi
dent many incidents, which enable one
to understand the personal side of the
man. Mrs. Lincoln was a devout Pres
bytiian and attended church regular
ly, but her husband seldom accompa
nied h r. On Sunday mornings he was
accustomed to stroll down to his office
with his three boys. There he would
read while the boys played in perfect
freedom with his papers, threw bis ink

well at each olher, and caused general
havoc. The future president apparent
ly enjoyed the ir pranks, and never in
terrupted their play. Thus the morn
ing would be spent, and then the long,
unkempt father and his mischievous
sons would file in ludicrous procession
up the street, Mr. Lincoln stopping
now and then to shake hands with a
neighbor who had been to church. It
is a picture which Springfield old tim
ers still remember vividly.
That Mrs. Lincoln did not approve of
Ihe Sunday morning diversion, and in
deed of many other things which her
more plebian husband did, appears un
questioned. Mrs. Lincoln had been
reared to believe in the conventions of
society, and the uncouth actions of her
husband were a never ceasing trial to
her. Mr. Lincoln used to delight in
lying on the floor in the hall with a
chair for a pillow, reading, and when
a caller rang the bell he would answer
the ring instead of waiting for a serv
ant to open the door. This was a hab
it of which Mrs. Lincoln never suc
ceeded in breaking him.
ew l.lucola Story.
Many stories are told of the unceas
ing good humor of the Springfield at
torney, who, on the circuits, was ever
the life of any party of which he was
a part. An instance of Lincoln's ready
wit is related hy a fellow attorney.
This man being somewhat of an ath
lete, engaged in a friendly wrestling
match on the court house lawn one
morning before court was called. In
the scuffle he tore a bau rent in his
trousers and was unable to have it
repaired before being called on to ad
dress the jury. The tear showed very
plainly beneath his rather short coat,
and was the subject of jocular com
ment by the other attorneys, each of
whom started a subscription paper for
the purpose of raising funds with
which to buy a new pair of trousers for
the unfortunate man. Each of the at
torneys present subscribed to some ri
diculous sum. When Ihe subscription
paper reached Mr. Lincoln, he glanced
V the writing and then at the unfortu
nate attorney, and wrote at once. "I

GIVE UP THEIR CHARTER
Wcod Workers Affiliate With the Car
penters and Joiners.
Last evening at the Industrial Home
building a meeting was held for the
purpose of organizing Mill Men's
Union No. 770. of the Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners of America.
Most of those present wire members of
the Tri-City Union of Wood workers. It
is understood that the latter union
either has or shortly will give up Its
charter, and its members become affili
ated with the carpenters' union. There
is something of a struggle between the
carpenters' and woodworkers' interna
tional organizations for jurisdiction,
and the action last evening is a decid
ed victory for the carpenters, which
has the stronger organization and the
best backing. The following otllcers
were elected for the new union:
President II. B. IViugherty.
Secretary A. M. Philipp.
Treasurer M. Parker.
Financial secretary A
Conductor C. Boyle.
Warden W. Stoeckel.
The new organization
with the labor congress.
It begins its
career in Rock Island with a member
ship or about 00 workmen, and it is
expected that a large number of new
members will be added to the roll at
the next meeting.
Sued by His Doctor.
"A doctor here has sued me for
S12.50. which I claimed was excessive
for a case of cholera morbus," says R.
White, of Coachella. Cal. "At the trial
he praised his medical skill and medi
cine. I asked him if it was not Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy he used, as I had good reason
to believe it was. and he would not say
under oath that it was not." No doc
tor could use a better remedy than this
in a case of cholera morbus, it never
fails. Sold by all leading druggists.
