the prominent speakers for the coming
meeting in Rock Island, It is fitting
that something be said of the presi
dent of the Farmers' National con

of rtiose who assisted Rock Island in
securing this big convention. Mr.1
Stahl, with Colonel E. W. Wiclcey of
East Chicago, on the Invitation of L.
H. Strayer, came to Rock Island and
preecnted the matter to local- inter-j
evts. He and Colonel Wickcy were de
lighted with the city and the idea of
hedding the convention here. Their in
tluence in the executive committee, of

He has been the moving spirit of the
Farmers' National e-ongress for some

has issued a booklet for general circu

and elescriptive and historical matter.
The links are conceded to be among J
the finest in America. From the stand
point of natural beauty and surround

it would be difficult to excel tjjem.
There are. 18 holes, covering a course
of 0,1 C4 yards, which lies along tho fj
north side of Rock island. liberal
ioeim is afforded, tho sod is perfect,
and groves skirt the way for a largo
part eif the distance. Another feature
that, renders the links suitable for im
portant matches is the system of road
ways by which the play can be follow
ed in vehicles from beginning to end.

The idea of forming a golf club hero
originated in July, 897. when a num
ber of gentlemen and ladies of Rock
Island anel Moline and Davenport were
invited by CloneI (then Captain)
Stanhope E. Hlunt, commanding Rock
Island arsenal, to play golf over a
seven-hole course which had just been
laid out at the arsenal by him and
Captain William S. Peirce. and the ac
ceptances were so general a club or

authority of General D. W. Flagler, the
chief of ordnance, a small locker house

lengthened to nine holes, of about 2,

In October, 1903. the locker house
ivas destroyed by fire, and a month
later the club requested permission to
replace it with a structure that would
provide a suitable club house for their
organization. General William Crozier,
chief of ordnance, V. S. army, approv
ed the request, and license to continue
tho use of the golf links and to erect
a new building was on Dec. 5. 1905,
granted by William H. Taft, secretary
Liberal subscriptions having been
made by the members, a club house
was designed by and erected under the
direction of Colonel Blunt, and opened
to members in April. 1900.
In this building the club has an in
vestment of about $10, SOU, and in spe
cial pre-paration of. the golf course
