Deadly Serpent Bites
Are as common in India as are stom
ach and liver disorders with us. For
the latter, however, there is a sure
remedy: Electric Bitters, the great
restorative medicine, of which S. A.
Brown of Bennettsville, S. C, says:
"They restored my wife to perfect
health, after years of suffering with
dyspepsia and a chronically torpid liv
er." Electric Bitters cure chills and
fever, malaria, biliousness, lame back,
kidney troubles and bladder disorders.

Petersen's Band Entertains
Number on the W. W.
The steamer W. V. last evening took
a large excursion from Rock Island and
Davenport, tnc ,r'P combining an ex
cursion and a conceit by Petersen's
band. There were several hundred on
board. The band played throughout
the entire trip, dancing being indulged
in by the younger members of the
company. It is expected that these ex
cursions by the band will be given
periodically during the remainder of
the summer, last evening's trip being
in the nature of an experiment.
Thousands annually bear witness to
the efficiency of Early Risers. These
pleasant, reliable little pills have long
borne a reputation second to none as a
laxative and cathartic. They are as
staple as bread in millions of homes.
Pleasant, but effective. Will promptly
relieve constipation without griping.

After a lull pending the passage of
a new primary law and its going into
effect, politics begins to take its place
in the foreground and becomes a mat
ter of general discussion in Illinois
The calling of conventions is now the
order of business, and from this time
on the campaign will be gaining in
force until all matters are settled.
At present the committeemen have
under discussion the Question of lay
ing out the delegate districts. The re
publicans have already had one meet
ing for the discussion of this question
and already the friction has begun to
develop. The principal cause is th
suspicion that certain c andidates, favor
a gerrymander in order to insure their
1'rlnvlpnl In Senittornbip.
The senatorship seems to be the one
on which these suspicions hang. Larry
Magill and Frank Landee are the can
didates. and the supporters of each are
watching closely the proposition of the
other in the formation of the districts.
Up to the time of the supreme
court's declaration that the primary
law was unconstitutional the fight for
the nomination for sheriff was almost
on a par with the senatorship, and the
number of candidates in the field made
the contest all the more interesting.
Like all others, this was dropped, but
will now be taken up with a renewed
To those who have been advised of
the make-up of the Cullom committees,
both in the county at large and town
ships, there are some interesting de
velopments. The hand of Postmaster
H. A. J. McDonald, who has come to
the front as a promoter of the inter
ests of the federal maciiiue, may plain
ly be seen. In fact, a roll of the com
mitteemen bears a great similarity to
a Yates delegation of two years ago.
Combined with a few of the steadfast
supporters of Senator Cullom are the
former Yates leaders in the various
wards of Rock Island, and there is a
liberal number from the country. In
order to make room for the Yates con
verts it becomes necessary to set aside
some of the workers in the Cullom
ranks, and this has been done. So the
absence of the names of some of those
who have heretofore been active in
the support of the senior senator is one
of the things that strikes one in the
eye as he peruses the list.
Convent ion In AIm1o.
At the meeting of the republican
congressional committee in Bushnell
yesterday it was decided to hold the
convention of Aug. 10 in Aledo, the
home of Congressman McKinney, who
will probably be nominated by accla
mation. There will be 122 delegates in
the convention, 41 from Rock Island.
This is the same representation Rock
Island had in the Marsh and McKinney

Hon. T. J. Medill. of Rock Island.
Captain Lon Bryson of Davenport, and
W. A. Meese of Moline, constitute the
nucleous of a tri-eity delegation who
are now in Washington using their ef
forts m behalf of the early completion
of the Hennepin canal. This important
undertaking although funds have been
appropriated to see it through, has
been placed in jeopardy through selfish
private interests outside the three
cities which have placed obstacles in
the way that threaten to work its ulti
mate undoing and leaving the canal in
a nearly finished condition to become
a stagnant pool and a scar upon the
state and the nation. Every effort will
be made to secure favorable action.
The completion of the canal is not
desired so much for its actual value as
a waterway as for, the effect It will
exert upon freight rates. This has en
listed the active support of all the
large shippers of the three cities. The
canal, too. would be rendered more
valuable now than as originally plan
ned from the fact that it will connect
at the Illinois river with the deep wa
terway which it is proposed to con
struct between the Great Lakes and
the Mississippi via the Illinois river
and the Chicago drainage canal. This
enterprise seems certain to be carried
out and renders it practically certain
that the Hennepin will have a terminus
in Lake Michigan, which was in doubt
before the drainage canal was undertaken.

Leon Conover, Formerly of This City,
Invalid at Wyoming, III.
Letters from Wyoming. 111., bring
word that the condition of Leon Con
over, son of Mr. and Mrs. S. N. Con
over, formerly of this city, is not re
covering from the affliction that has
rendered him an invalid for two years.
Leon, who was a member of Company
A from this city in the Spanish-American
war, suffered a severe attack of
typhoid fever in Porto Rico and was
never entirely well afterward. Two
years ago while working with Ab Lan
dis. the actuary, at Nashville, Tenn.,
Leon was stricken vith paralysis, his
lower limbs being afTected. He was
removed to Wyoming, where the fam
ily now resides and has been tenderly
cared for since by his mother, but has
grown steadily worse.
Court was adjourned yesterday af
ternoon until Monday at 2 o'clock. The
business of the term has been brought
about to a close, although there is
nothing certain about the final adjourn
ment. The lime has been well occu
pied up to the present and a large
number of matters have been disposed
of in the two weeks the court has been
sitting without a jury.
Judge Ramsay will be here next
week to take up a further hearing on
issues in the injunction case of the
Central Union Telephone company
jgainst the city of Rock Island, but
how much time will bo devoted to that
this summer is not known.
Volume of Ituxlorn.
A large volume of business has been
disposed of in the circuit court since
the opening of the September term.
more than has been turned out for sev
eral years. The docket, has been filling
up until the question of a branch court
became a serious one. but this has
been an exceptional year for business.
Outside of Jhe Xagel case, which has
not taken a great deal of the time of
the court, there was little criminal
business taken up in any of the three
terms. All of the misdemeanors were
certified to the county court for triad
and there they have practically all
been disposed of either by trial or plea.
This gave considerable more time for
the business on the civil docket.
Judge Gest's retirement from the ap
pellate bench made it possible for him
to preside most of the time. Judge
Ramsay coming for a few weeks. There
was thus no time when an adjourn
ment was taken because of the con
flict of the business of the judges.
