TAFT HERE BUT ONCE AND THEN AS
GUEST OF PRESS CLUB
The first and only time William II.
Taft, republican nominee for president.
visited Rock Island was June 11, 1907,
just one year, and one week prior to
tho day of his nomination. He came as
a-guefet of the Tri-City Press club. At
that time he was -preparing for his fa
mous tour of the world, tho object of
which was lo convey the official greet
ings of the United States to Japau
and Russia and mayhap to. ascertain'
definitely for himself just what there
was back of all the talk of war in the
orient involving the United States that
was going the rounds about that lime.
SecretaryTaftwasmet at the train and
escorted to Rock Island arsenal, where
he put in gome time visiting the shops
and making a general inspection of the
entire establishment. He was duly im
pressed with the magnitude and the ad
vantages of the ars(nal as a manufac
turing plant, and in the event of his
election as president there is no doubt
that his visit here will prove to have
been of material benefit to the three

port, the function ; being one of the'
most pretentious ever given in'
the' three 'cities. Of 1 course, the
guest, of the evening delivered an ad-'
dress, in response: to the toast, "The
President of the United States." Gen
eral Crozier, General Bell, Colotiel
Blunt, and Hon.' E. W. Hurst of this'
city were. among the other speakers.
Later Secretary Taft was elected to
honorary membership in th club. j
' Prior to Judge Taft'svisit here the
club orf several occasions had had Hon.'
W. J. Bryan as its guest and had alsOj
elected him an Honorary member. Mr.
Bryan's nomination at Denver being
practically assured; and Mr. Taft's al-j
ready accomplished by the republicans,!
the press club feels reasonably certain;
that it has had the honor of entertain- j

VISIT OF PATTISON
HAS BEEN POSTPONED
Democratic Gubernatorial Aspirant De
fers Coming Here Until a
O. H. Wright of Freepott, chairman
of the democratic campaign committee,
for Hon. Douglas Pattison of that city
for governor of Illinois, has written to
Rock Island cancelling the date for Mr.
Pattison's appearance here until a later
time, perhaps after the Denver con
vention. Mr. Pattison, who as known
is the democratic minority leader in
the Illinois house, is making a whirl
wind campaign of. the state for the
party's gubernatorial nomination and
is making friends wherever he speaks.
He had been booked for next Tues
day in Rock Island. He is through hi.s
experience in the lower house in which
he has taken so conspicuous a position,
as well as through his ability and par
ty loyalty peculiarly fitted not only to
make a splendid impression on bis own
party, but to combat the opposition, no
matter whether the nominee be Doneen
or Yates. In other words, Pattison
knows where all the blow holes are in
the republican armor.
Mr. Pattison will undoubtedly be
greeTed by a large outpouring of demo
crats and citizens generally when he
visits Rock Island.
Notice is hereby given that an "elec
tion will be held on Tuesday, the 30th
day of Juno A. D. 1908, in the city of
Rock Island, 111., for the purpose of
electing two members of the board of
education of Rock. Island school dis
trict." The polling place for said elec
tion will be at Flick's livery stable,
1912 Third avenue. Which election
will be opened at 8 o'clock in the
morning and continue open until 7
o'clock in the afternoon of that day.
The judges and clerks of election re
siding in the first precincts of the
Fourth ward will be the judges and
clerks for this electiori.
