NEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS
Smallpox Danger Passes. After the
city had been exposed to the disease
and a large number of cases had come
to the attention of the. health depart
ment, Davenport has practically been

smallpox plague, and there now re
main only the last vestiges of the dis
ease in the city. Four cases whieh
are oil convalescents, the victims be

ist party of Davenport has placed a
full county ticket in the field, nomina
tion papers having been filed announc
ing the following candidates for nom
ination for the various county offices:
County clerk, Frank Helder'; sheriff,
C. A. Greenamyer; auditor, Milo M.

William Stelk; supervisor, Henry
COO Out cf Work for Summer. No
tices posted at the factory of the Corn
Products company notified the 500 em
ployes that the works would be shut
down indefinitely after this week.
The employes understand this to
mean a shut down until next fall, and
the notices were the most unwelcome
announcement that could have been
made to them. The order came on the
heels of one for the opening of work
at full blast, for which grain had been
put to steep which" it is understood
will have to be shipped to some of
the company's other plants. Some of
the mechanics on the force, it is stat
ed, are offered work in other plants
of the company. The company spent
half a million electrifying and modern
izing its plant here, and some $250,000
building a can factory that is all
ready to grind out the cans. There
will be general regret if it is to lie
idle all summer, as well as failure to
understand why the company's most
modern plant should be closed down.
Thotis Nearly Out of Danger. The
assailant of George Thotis, who is
now at St. Luke's hospital under the
care of a physician, is still at large
and n trace has ever been found of
the man, who is charged with assault
with intent to commit murder, al

the country have been notified and

almost out of danger although there
is still a leakage of the bowels which
has not yet healed, and a perforation

Striking One Mado by England's New
Premier That Has Come True.
Herbert . Henry Asquith. who suc
ceeded the late Sir Henry Campbell
Bannenuan as prime minister of Eng
land, has beeu in turn a member of
parliament, a privy counselor, secre
tary of the state home department,
ecclesiastical commissioner, chancellor
of the exchequer and, lastly, premier.
He is one of the most cultured men in
the cabinet, for from his earliest days
he has been an enthusiastic student
In his school days his oue dream was
to rise to political power. He cared
for no sport. His chief recreation
was reading verbatim parliamentary
reports iu the newspapers. Apropos
of this it is told how he used to bor
row n copy of the London Times
every morning from a frieudly news
ageut and go out and, read it., sitting
under the hedge of the cricket field
while his schoolfellows were enjoyin
games. As a barrister he has won
success which attends only a very
small proportion of those who go in
for the law. but it has been the out
come of much striving, for at first he
met with reverses ou every hand. He
has said that it was the greatest day
of his life when he got into parlia
ment. His enthusiasm ou that oeca
slon was so marked that when parlia
ment oieued he to'.d a fellow member
that one day he would be prime minis
ter and was laughed at for his pains.
As a strong man Mr. Asquith Is In
a class by himself. Ho combines with
the fearlessness and pugnacity of
Koosevelt tue taciturnity, uud cynicism
of Choate. the wide intellectuality of
the late John Hay and the debating
ability of Bryan. No man in British
public life can staud against him iu a
forensic battle. He Is a lawyer by
trainiug. the greatest lawyer in Eng
land, and he is as merciless in the
house of commons as if he were con
ducting a cross examination.

All Saloons Stay. Yesterday after
noon 61 saloon license fees of $500
each had been paid to the city clerk.
It was thought ' that some of the saloons-'
would be abandoned on account
of the high license, but there are just
as many in the city to' do business
now as there were when half as much
license was charged by the. city. It
was thought "by some that, three or
four saloonkeepers would give up the
business and also the" saloon location,
but that-has not proven -so.- While
there were several changes made in
proprietorship of saloons, some quit
ting the business, others immediately
purchased the stock to continue the
business. Hence, the city revenue
from this, source - will be $01,000,
whereas last year it was $30,500.

"A UN-AMERICAN ACT."
View of Mrs. Donald McLean on Gift
of Chesapeake Flag to England.
The news that William Waldorf As
tor had givou the Chesapeake's lias to
England created great excitement in
the ranks of the Daughters of the
American Revolution while iu conven
ticn in Washington.
From the president general. Mrs.
Donald McLean, to the last alternate
all expressed regret that an American
should so far forget nil ideas of pro
priety as to give away his country's
liattlenag. Mrs. Mclean left a din
ner party when she heard the iiewn
and Issued the following statement:
'It is incredible, if it is true, which 1
am inclined to doubt, for it is the most
un-American thing I ever heard of.
Next to the Revolutionary struggle the
war of 181 certainly awakens the
pride of every American. Its relics
should be preserved, especially from
the English, for any American who
has ever heard those immortal words.
Don't give up the ship,' could certain
ly never think of giving up the flag. . It
passes belief, nnd I am inclined to
t'oubf the correctness of the cable
gram.' - ,
A Curious Souvenir.
A short time ago Pope Fius X. gave
an audience to a group of distinguished
Americans. While they were convers
ing the reverend gentleman took from
a compartment in a nearby desk a
piece of paper and, handing It to oue
of the party, said, "By the way, allow
me to present yon with n little
souvenir of yonr. visit to Tius X."
The recipient, upon examining his
treasure, found It to be the return
coupon of a railroad ticket from Venice
to Rome, says the May Bohemlau. It
was the one purchased by Cardinal
Giuseppi Sarto to attend the meeting
of cardinals at Rome' after the death
of Leo. . As we all know, he has never
returned to Venice.
There is probably no medicine made
that is relied upon with more implicit
confidence than Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera rand Diarrhoea Remedy. Dur
ing the third of . a century lit which
it has been in use, people have learned
that it is the ope remedy that never
fails. When reduced , with water and
sweetened it Is pleasant to take. For
