DAVID J. BREWER.
With the death of Dudley Buck last
October, America lost a man who, aa
organist and composer of sacred music,
was a powerful agent for the uplifting
of music In America. His compositions
were a refreshing relief and inspira
tion to church choirs thirsty for Pro
testant music of some depth and
warmth. His works include many
things in the secular line,
but it Is chiefly in connec
tion with yhis sacred music
that he will be remembered, and in
this class of composition he is accord
ed by many authorities the very high
est place among American composers.
He has written a series of short church
cantatas depicting the main events re
lating to the birth, death, resurrection
and ascension of Christ entitled "The
Coming of the King," "The Story of
the Cross." and "Christ, the Victor."
The choir of the Broadway Presby
terian church has been enlarged for
Easter and will present the last of this
series, "Christ the Victor," next Sun
day. This work begins with Good Fri
day night and carries the story
through the resurrection to the ascen
sion. A prophetic prologue as baritone
solo is the first number, followed by a
chorus, "Lamentation of the Women.''
The night watch, by a chorus of men,
describes Saturday. The Easter dawn,
divided into duet for soprano and alto,
"A3 It Began, to Dawn" chorus, "And,
Behold, There Came a Great Earth
quake;" tenor solo, "Fear Not, Ye,"
and chorus, "Allelujia, Christ is Ris
en." No. 3 describes the reappearance
of Christ, and is followed by the fa
miliar hymn, "Ye Christian Heralds,
Go Proclaim," for congregation and
choir. The report of the watch, the
questioning -of Simon Peter, when
Jesus says, "Feed My Sheep, and Fol
low Me," is closed with another hymn
by congregation and choir. "Yea, We
Will Strive to Follow Thee." The
ascension is described by an alto solo
and a baritone solo. The epilogue and
finale la a stirring chorus, "Lo, to the
Heaven of Heavens Did He Ascend,"
which modules to a beautiful, soft

PILOTED THE LAUNCH
RACiNE TO MEMPHIS
Captain Frank Wild Returns from
South and Will Run on River
Here This Summer.
Captain Frank Wild of Albany has
returned from the lower river, where
he spent the winter working for the
Hall company getting out staves in
the streams about Memphis. On his
way back he fell in at St Louis with
Stanley A. Beadle, the unfortunate pub
licity expert who undertook to make
a winter trip from Chicago down the
drainage canal, Illinois and Mississippi
rivers as the first stage of a trip to
New York. About the time he reached
Peoria the big storm struck and in two
or three days the river was closed.
After battling the ice and jumping one
dam, he finally near Alton struck a
rock and sunk his craft, the Racine.
The winter was spent in raising and
repairing the boat and in getting it to
St. Louis. There is was tied up till
the ice went out this spring.
Captain Wild came along while the
crew of the Racine were making prep
arations to resume the trip south and
was engaged as pilot to take the boat
to Memphis. This he did, and is now
here negotiating with the local gov
ernment engineers for employment on
one of the river steamers the coming

UNABLE TO KEEP UP FIGHT

Bellingham, Wash., March 24. Dr.
William H. Axtell, a close friend of
Frederick A. Cook, yesterday received
a letter from Mrs. Cook, dated Val
paraiso, Chile, in which she says the
explorer is returning to the United
States broken in health, without funds
and unable to continue his fight to
establish his claim that he discovered
the north pole. Mrs. Cook wrote that

that Cook made considerable money

HOW TO PURIFY THE
BLOOD IN THE SPRING
(From the National Home Monthly.)
At this season of the year nearly
every person requires a tonic to
cleanse the blood and purify the sys
tem from the accumulation of waste
matter that results from the inactive
life of winter.
Spring fever, dullness, languidness,
(! e disinclination to work or exercise
the general ail-around run-down,
"Oh, what's the use?" feeling- poor
ci petite, sallow complexion, liver
blotches, pimp s and eruptions of the
skin any and all of these symptoms
indicate the need of a good blood
tonic and liver invigorator.
Get from your druggist one ounce
of kardene; dissolve the kardene aud
cup sugar in pint alcohol and
add enough hot water to make a full
quart. The excellent tonic purifies
and enriches the blood, arou3es the
liver, corrects deranged digestion. e
stores lost appetite, clears the skin
and strengthens and builds up tne en

tablespoonful five minutes before each
meal and before retiring. if your
druggist is out of kardene, ask him to

WHAT CANADIAN TARIFF
WAR WOULD MEAN
TO UNITED STATES
(Continued from .Page One.)
Canadian business. Will anybody In
the United States be advantaged by
a tariff war that curtails the export
to Canada of the $157,000,000 worth
of articles enumerated above? If so,
Will Be Permanent Lou.
Not only will the United States lose
the greater part of this business dur
ing the life of the tariff war, but we
will lose a certain large proportion
of the business forever, because while
the tariff war is on, English and Ger
man firms will have an opportunity to.
build up a large clientele in Canada
a very considerable- proportion of

When the Dingley law was framed
in 1896 the exercise of a little fore
sigh ted n ess on the part of American
statesmen would have made of Can
ada an economic dependency of the
United States. At that time the Can
adian leaders were eager and willing
to establish a free trade between Can
ada and the United States. Such a
move would have laid open the tre
mendous - sources of raw material In
Canada to the manufacturers of the
United States and would .have made
of Canada, an Immense buyer of Unit
ed States manufactures. The Ameri
can Btatemen, however, proceeded on
a grab-it-all-and-give-nothing-back pol
icy which has made of Canada an In
dependent commercial nation.
Broad-Minded Offer Rejected.
Canada's broad minded offers of
1896 having been turned down by the
United States, it has since repeatedly
refused to consider reciprocal com
mercial concessions with us. In 1897,
one year after the Dingley law was
enacted, Canada took a slap at the
United States by granting to Great
Britain and most of the British col
onies a preferential reduction of 12 V6
per cent in its tariff rates. In 1898
the reduction was increased to 25 per
cent, and in 1900 to 33 Pr cent,
and it now averages 30 per cent and
applies uniformly on all articles. It
is because of preferential rates to
France that the Amorican-Canadian
commercial struggle will begin.
Back in 1S9G Canada was not a
manufacturing nation in the sense
that it could hope to supply its own
needs in manufactured goods. It has
not even yet approximated such a
condition, but a tariff war at this time
with the United States will go a long
way toward making Canada independ
ent of our markets.
Establlabed Oirn Industrie.
The result of our refusal to be
liberal to Canada in the Dingley law
was that there were established in
Canada during the succeeding 10
years not less than 150 important in
dustries. One-half of the Iron and
steel industry and one-fifth of the
lumber and wood working establish-
BOTH SIDES OF THE
(By the Local Option League.)
In Tuesday evening's paper it was
reported that Mayor McCaskrin had
stated to the -city council Monday
evening: "Cutting off the $35,000 an
nual revenue Rock Island receives
from the saloons would necessitate
the dismissal of our police, fire, health
and street departments, and we would
be obliged to carry on the business
of the municipality on 'hot air"
Will the mayor please illustrate?
Will he kindly point to a single city
which voted out the saloons two years
ago and gave up the saloon revenues
where the action he Indicates has
been found necessary?
Rockford, Galesburg. Champaign,
Paris, Jacksonville, Decatur and many
other cities contlmie to support all
departments of the city government
without saloon revenues, and prosper
in so doing. Why cannot Rock Island
do the same?
Again, we would like to ask the
mayor if some of these departments
in our city have not been practically
suspended for some time for lack of
funds even under the license system?
Is It not true that at the close of
January, 1910, the following conditions

Health fund (exhausted) 6,000
Sewer fund (exhausted) 2,000
Contingent fund (exahusted) . . 6,000
Printing fund (exhausted) 700
Fire and police funds are not entirely
exhausted, but insufficient to last out
the year. The city could certainly not

not true that at this very time the
streets are being cleaned with money
loaned by private citizens, practically

we are. How can we help so doing in
this rich, valley? But we carry a tre

there were 36 manufactured firms

of which came from the United States.

United States had established branch

These facts are significant. They
mean, on the one hand, that large
American manufacturing concerus
have found it cheaper to establish
branch plants in Canada than to
manufacture In the United States and
pay the tariff duties to get their goods
into Canada. Every time American
concerns build a branch plant across
the line, they reduce the productivity
of American manufactures in propor
tion to their product in Canada, and
they deprive the laborer of the United
States of Just that much work, while
at the same time reducing the exports
of the country by a like amount. And
if the Dingley rates alone were suffi
cient to put Canada on its feet as a
manufacturing nation, will not an ad

It is the common experience of
cities which have banished the saloon
that they do not need nearly so many
policemen. In Galesburg, the arrests
for intoxication In two wet years pre

were 2.135. In the two dry years they
were 621. If Rock Island could save
