opened at the Harper house, and some

arrived in the city. Among the first

Recoil Departed Officer.
In connection with this session of
the grand cemmandery, it is interest
ing to note that the late H. C. Cleave
iiun, like his son, was an officer of the
state organization, and not only was
one of the most prominent members
of the orderin Rock Island, but was
;rominent throughout Illinois. Mr.
Cleaveland, however, did not live to
occupy the high office at the head of
the state Knights Templar, his death
cccuring when he was the eminent
jaand junior warden.
Mr. Cleaveland was one of the most
leioved members of Rock Island com-
jniai dery, an this is evident from the
ract that he served 17 different terms
as eminent commander of the com
mandery, then known as Everet's
eoTmandery. Mr. Cleaveland wis a
if ember of the commandery from 1S67
to the time -of his death, Aug. 15,
199. It is said of him that none
knew the ber-utiful ritual of the Ma
sonic orders better than he and that he
administered the work perfectly. His ac
curate knowledge of the rituals is some
thing of a tradition in the commandery,
and that it added to the interest of
the members is certain.

Republicans Import Speaker From
Kentucky but Secure Only
Small Audience. .
LOCAL ISSUES AVOIDED
L. M. Magill of Moline Talks and W.
A. Meese Boosts Deneen Secre
tary Bruner Tells Stories.
The republicans endeavored . to stir
up a little entnusiasm in tne cam
paign Saturday night by importing
John L. Bruner, secretary of state of
Kentucky, to address local voters. The
effort was hardly successful. The
committee sec out with the big aim of
securing an audience of 10,000 people
to hear the Kentuckian, but when the
n eeting wa3 finally called to order,
the audience could be computed in
hundreds rather than thousands. There
were a few on hand to applaud, how
ever, for the first time in the repub
lican campaign. F. O. Van Galder pre
tideci. MaR-lll Make Speeek.
L. M. Magill of Moline, who wants
to be state's attorney, was the first
speaker. He did not attempt to dis
russ local politics, but confined him
self to state or national issues. W. A.
Meese of Mohne also talked. He was
"n hand to boost Governor Deneen
?rd his administration.
Dr. Bruner did not make much of a.
sneech. He told a few stories an!
talked in a rambling way about the
recent panic and the republican tariff
p'anks. His storie3 were good, and
as long as he occupied himself with
tnrm and dil not discuss politics he
kept the audience enthused.
