A. Frederick Collins, who was to
have been in Rock Island last night
to speak before the Men's club of
Broadway Presbyterian church, has
not arrived here yet, and the officers
of the club have not heard a word
from the lecturer explaining the rea
son for his default. He was to have
spoken on "Wireless Telegraphy and
Telephony," and 125 men were present
to hear the lecture, as Mr. Collins Is a
widely recognized authority on the sub
ject. In the absence of Mr. Collins an Im
promptu program was arranged. A. D.
Welch, president of the club, called a
man from each profession to tell why
ho had chosen his particular line of
work. Senator F. A. Landee of Mo
line was the first speaker. President
Welch assigned to him the subject,
"Is It Possible for a. Politician to Be
Honest?" Senator Landee admitted
that there were dishonest politicians.
He said that all that was necessary
was to "smile and look wise, and let
the other fellow do the talking." He
said that since he had gone to Spring
field he had become a "night hawk"
Just because he had to "be on the job"
and see that the other fellows did not
slip something up their sleeves while
he was sleeping.
Minister at Piano.
Rev. W. G. Oglevee, assistant pastor
of Broadway Presbyterian church, told
what he knew about music, and con
tributed two finely executed piano se
lections. Dr. F. A. Smith is chairman of the
speakers' committee of the club. Pres
ident Welch asked him which he would
rather be, "A doctor on a cold night
at 2:30 in the morning and receive a
call from a party living six miles out
In the country, or chairman of tho
speakers' committee when the speaker
falls to appear." Dr. Smith has un
doubtedly received such a call, and he
chose the chairmanship of the speak
ers' committee without' the slightest
Jndre en "Anything.
Judge Olmsted, as both barrister and
Judge, was called upon to defend the
lawyer. President Welch instructed
him before he launched into his speech,
"If you think that you are not justified
In defending the lawyer, you may talk
about anything." Strange as It may
seem, the judge chose "Anything" for
E. C. Hart was called upon to de
fend the real estate man. His subject
was, "Explain how a man can sell a
farm he has not got to a man that does
not want it and has no money to pay
for it?" Mr. Hart said he would will
ingly explain if any of the men present
would step Into his odce. He extend
ed a very cordial Invitation to all, but
