Excitement Caused Death. Those in
attendance at Saturday's republican
convention at Turner hall and who
listened to the eloquent address of its
temporary chairman. Henry Olson of
Dixon, will be surprised to learn that
the excitement of the occasion was too
much for Mr. Olson and that his death
followed a few hours later. Mr. Olson
presided as the temporary chairman
until relieved of this duty by the ap
pointment of the permanent chairman
in the person of Chris Marti. During
the time Mr. Olson presided, there
was some confusion over a number
of motions presented, which, together
with the exertions used by him in de
livering his powerful address, is sup
posed to have been too great a strain
for his constitution. Mr. Olson left
the hall shortly after 2 o'clock and
wandered east on Third street. At
o'clock he was found unconscious on
West Second street between Rock Is
land and Iowa. He was taken in the
city ambulance to St. Luke's hospital
but died at t.:4." o'clock without re
gaining consciousness. Apoplexy, mie
to the excirement of the convention. Is
given as the cause of his death. Mr
Olson had also been troubled with
heart ailment for many years.

ANECDOTE ABOUT HITT.
How Martyred President Showed Hla
Kegjard For Illlmula CoacrMiiau.
The late Robert Roberts Hitt, for
many years a representative from Illi
nois, was educated at Rock River sem
inary, founded by .his father, now
Mount Morris college, and at De Pauw
university, at Asbury. 111. While in
the seminary he became Interested lu
the study of stenography and soon be
came a master of it. He became Inter
ested la Journalism and obtained em
ployment on the staff of the Chicago
When it was learned that he knew
shorthand, he was regarded as a "star"
reporter and was assigned to report
the great debates between Douglas
and Lincoln in 3Sr3. when the "Little
Giant" and the "rail splitter" were ri
val candidates for the senate and can
vassed the state in a joint debate
which has ever since been memorable
ill the political history of Illinois.
Many stories are told of the part Mr.
Hitt played in the campaign of that
year. Mr. Lincoln recognized perhaps
better than any one else the importance
of that debate in bringing him con
spicuously before the country. His re
gird for Mr. Hitt Is shown in the fol
On one of the meeting days, a very
hot and sultry one, an immense crowd
had gathered at Freeport, drawn from
all the country roundabout. The meet
ing was hold In an open field, as none
of the public squares or crossroads
would accommodate the crowd. The
announcement had been made lhat the
speaking would begin at 2:3rt o'dotik
precisely, and at that hour everybody
and everything seemed to be In readi
ness. Mr. Lincoln had beeti billed for the
first speech, and the multitude waited
with bated breath for him to login the
lHittle. Hut he did not rise. Instead of
that he sat twisting in his chair and
craning bis long neck Ihis way and
that, as If looking for some lost object.
Mr. Douglas seemed mystified at all
this. He was perfectly composed him
self, and his stenographer was putting
a needle point on one of his pencils.
Presently Mr. Lincoln half rose, bent
forward and opened his mouth, while
all the crowd strained its cars to listen.
Instead of pouring forth a torrent of
eloquence, however, his lips emitted
only these words:
There was a moment's silence, and
then a wave of merriment swept over
the multitude. Mr. Lincoln, apparent
ly unconscious of everything except his
own anxiety, spoke again. "Does any
body know where Hitt is?"'
This was too much for every one, and
a peal of hearty laughter was the re
sponse. Just then some person in the
rear of the crowd shouted. "Hilt's com
ing!" And In a minute or two a per
spiring youth, much agitated and out
of breath, worked his way through the
dense mass of humanity and was help
ed upon the platform. Mr. Lincoln
heaved a deep sigh of satisfaction,
paused until the newcomer could get
his notebook and pencil well in hand.
and then plunged into his speech with
a zest which made it seem all the more
eloquent for the brief diversion which
had preceded it. The phrase. "Where's
Hitt?" became a byword throughout
Quit Too Early; Fired. Hereafter
employes at the Silvis shops will be
more cautious and ascertain the exact
time of day before they begin the re
moval of their overalls preparatory to
leaving for their homes after the day's
work. Thursday night 10 workmen
washed up and took off their overalls
a few minutes before 0. and today that
.same number of men are seeking em
ployment. The men had just pulled
off their overalls when Superintendent
G. W. Sidel passed through the shops

Moline's young attorneys, sailed Sept.

Saturday in South Moline. When A.

pasture in the morning he discovered
the articles of clothing lying near the
well. He picked them up and found
in one pocket an invitation to the Mo

only clue to whom they belong. The
coat is of grayish mixed goods and the
necktie a light one.

The Spanish Queen on Stamp.
Queen Victoria of Spain has lost no
time in lending the pleasing Impress
of her features to complicate the ama
teur's collection of postage stamps,
says P. T. O. of Loudon. The new
stamp shows the arms of Spain with
the royal crown and the portrait of
the queen in relief. Although one or
two letters from Spain have of late
arrived wifh several of these stamps.
they do not appear to take the place of
the ordinary postage stamps of com
merce. Published at the price of about
a penny apiece, they were privately
designed to aid the funds of a society
for the prevention of tuberculosis.
somewhat after the fashion of King
Edward's hospital stamps In England.
Consequently every letter that bears
one of Queen Victoria's stamps is real

Another Poor Bunch. The only re

Sol Smith Russell's "A Poor Relation,"
at the Illinois Saturday, was the work
of the juvenile actors, but really it is
a shame to set these children such an
example in dramatic art as presented
by the adult members of the company.
Such desecrations of good plays should
be stopped. The reputation of the play
itself attract ed fair audiences at both

Tickled the President. President
Roosevelt is an enthusiastic playgoer,
e'litering into the spirit of a play with
the same zest which distinguishes him
in all tilings that he dues. The St.
Louis Republic is authority for the fol
lowing anecdote illustrative ;f his
hearty enjoyment of a good play. Tho
president was a conspicuous figure in
one of the boxes of the opening per
formance of Leo Ditrichstcin's hilar
ious farce, "Before and After." in Wash
ington last season, which was attended
by a number of the diplomatic corps.
His loud laughter during the first act
increased the general mirth of the oc
casion .for everybody. During the sec
ond act Mr. Roosevelt called one of the
ushers to his side and requested that
the lights should be extinguished in the
president's box. as he was attracting
altogether too much attention from the
audience by his uncontrollable out
bursts of amusement. "I am laughing
so hard." he explained to the usher,

The company that Manager Joseph M.
