to order at 11 o'clock this forenoon at
Turner hall. The meeting organized
and adjourned to 2 o'clock in the af
ternoon. The republican county con
vention met at the small hall at Tur
ner hall at the same hour.- The more
important business of the conventions
will be the ratification of the nomina
tions made at the recent primary elec
tion, the adoption of a set of resolu
tions, and the selection of delegates.
Former Resident Near Death George
1j. Osbom, formerly a popular resident
of this city, is lying at the point of
death at his home in Alt. Vernon, N. Y.,
after being unconscious for the past
two days. A telegram to Attorney
Louis Block brought the sad news to
his Davenport friends, and his son.
Robert, who had come back here on
a visit, was found, and left at once
for-home when he heard of his father's
Tappendorf Gets Contract. The gen
era) contract for the erection of the
new church of the Redemptorists Fath
ers, who will establish a branch mis
sion in' Davenport upon, invitation of
Rt. Rev. James Davis, bishop of ths
Davenport diocoo, has been let to H.
Tappendorf, the Rock Island contrac
tor. Uids were opened after the com
petition, and the contract for the gen
eral construction was let. Sub-contractors
are now bidding on the plumb
ing and other details, and the other
contracts will be let in a short time.
The spot chosen is on Fremont ave
nue ami Boies street, and is only one
block north of the Mt. Ida street car
line on the Rockingham road, and
about, half way between the Davenport
Liocomofive works and thePariser gar
den. Hit by Falling Box. Robert Rehfuss
of 1111 West Sixth street, an employe
at the Rock Island arsenal, was injured
by the falling of a heavy box of metal
'at the arsenal shops Thursday. A
high pile of boxes filled with metal
parts began toppling over. A shout
of warning sent all the workmen in
the neighborhood to safety except Reh
fuss, who was struck by one of the
boxes. Several blood vessels were cut
but no bones broken.
Tried to Wreck Cars. Percy Phil
lips, colored, aged 12 years, is under
arrest charged with piling stones on
the track of the Le Claire street line
on le Claire street between Twelfth
and Thirteenth streets. Officer Ho
ineyer arrested the lad, and he will be
taken before Judge Bollinger.
Warring Parties Under Truce. The
two cases pending In Justice Oelker's
court, one against Charles Gordon,
charged with conducting a gambling
house and the other against. Henry
'Fete, charged with attempted extor-
tion, were continued indefinitely for
trial. Both parties were released on
their own recognizance. This compro
mise was reached between the parties
at war with each other. The cases
are continued with the understanding
that either party may demand a trial
at any time. It is therefore quite evi
dent that if Peto insists upon a pros
ecution of Mr. Gordon, the latter will
likewise Insist, that Peto be tried. on
the charge of extortion.

A Grand Family Medicine.
"It gives me pleasure to speak a
good word for Electric Bitters," writes
Frank Conlan of No. 436 Houston
street, New York. "Its a grand fam
ily medicine for dyspepsia and liver
complications; while for lame back
and weak kidneys it cannot be too
highly recommended." Electric Bit
ters regulate the digestive functions,
purify the blood, and impart renewed
vigor and vitality to the weak and
debilitated of both sexes. Sold under
guarantee at all druggists. 50 cents.
A REAL DELIGHT
To be eble to eet without distress
Do you suffer from any distress after meals, such as
Bloating, Flatulency, Heartburn, Vomiting, Head-
ache, Sour Risings or Nausea? Then your stomach
and digestive organs must indeed be in shape and in
need of a few doses of
at once. Delay only makes you worse Any by day
until finally, some; serious illness overtakes you.
Therefore, don't delay. It also" prevents Indigestion,
Dyspepsia, Costiveness, Sleeplessness, Liyer and
Kidney Troubles, Biliousness, Female Ills, Cramps,
Diarrhoea and Malaria, Fever and Ague. The aged
and infirm will also be especially benefitted by.taking
the Bitters. These letters should convince the most
skeptical of its merits.
