Rock Island Aerie No. 956. Fra
ternal Order of Eagles, has hopes of
landing the 1915 national convention
of the order and with this end in
view they are going to boom Rock Is
land at the grand aerie which will
be held at San Francisco Aug. 21
to -26. Members of the local aeria
believe that it will require at least
three years of active campaigning to
land the convention and they feel
that now Is the time to start. Ac
cordingly they are planning to raise
a fund with which to advertise this
city and vicinity as a convention
place. An excursion will be given
Aug. 3 on the steamer W. W. and the
proceeds will be used for advertis
ing at San Francisco. Later on a so
ciable will be given at the Eagle
home with the same end in view.
ORGANIZE FRISCO CLUB.
From among the members of the
Rock Island aerie and their wives, a
club has been organized and named j
the Frisco club. All of the members
are planning on attending the San i
Francisco meeting of the Eagles of
the country and all intend to Join in
the Rock Island booster movement.
The excursion and the social will be
under the supervision of this club.
Its members are:
Past President and Mrs. C. P. Mc
Quaid. Junior Past President and
Mrs. Cai A. Crumpton, Secretary and
Mrs. J. F. Dindlnger, Treasurer and
Mrs. August Bergeson, Mr. and Mrs.
William Trefz, Mr. and Mrs. Albert
Glass, Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Lurkmann,
Thomas Sitncox, Herbert Bowman,
Henry Huyvaert, Thomas Carey and
HtE SrEfUI- COACH.
The club has secured a special ,
Pullman coarh which will be attach- The
ed to a special train from Cleveland, ;
Ohio. The train leaves here Aug.
16' and stops will be made at many
places of interest along the route.
A very advantageous railroad rate
has been secured. The Cleveland
people are going after the 1912 con
vention but their prospects of get
ting it are not very bright as it is
conceded to Louisville, Ky. How
ever, it Is believed Cleveland will get
it in 1913.

belayed Inquest Is Held
Davenport Today. j
An inquest, the holding of which
has been delayed since June 29, was i
held in Davenport this morning by
Coroner Rudolph. It was an Inquiry
into the death of James Gilbert, for
merly a conductor on the Milwaukee
road. He was killed at Llnwood
while engaged in switching. The de
lay in the inquest was caused by the!
impossibility of getting the train
crew together. The verdict of the
jury was that death came while in
the discharge of his duties and no
blame was fixed.

to Rock Island and was immediate;
placed under arrest by Officer Meenan,
who had escorted the bunch to tn
"jumping off" place. Edward was giv

ENDORSEMENT FOR TAFT
la FoUette Fails in His Effort at Ne- j
braf-ka Convention. j
Lincoln, Neb., July, 27. Nebraska!
republicans in convention here gave i
President Taft and his administra-j
tion a strong endorsement and ef-1
fectively blocked all efforts of a
small band of insurgent delegates to j
arouse sentiment for Senator Rob-!
ert M. La Follette of Wisconsin, as ai
presidential candidate. The lnsur-1
gents lacked a leader and were out- j
generalled by Victor Rosewater and
his delegation from Omaha.
Fremont, Neb., July 27. The Ne
braska democratic convention which
has been expected to place Nebraska
democrats on record, so far as con
cerned their preference for a presi
dential candidate a year hence, fail
ed to express itself on candidates or
after commendations for its own
leaders. For the most part it was a
peaceful gathering, once it was In
session. Governor Harmon had a
personal representative present at
the convention, but he soon made it
plain to the delegates that his prin
cipal business was to get acquainted
and to look over the western field.
No attempt was made to present the
name of the Ohio governor for endorsement.

the most extraordinary island In the
world. It Is an enormous man 3 ol

and is perpetually enveloped In dark
cloud, which are visible for nearly
100 miles. The Island consists almost
entirely of sulphur, with a small per
centage of gypsum. Some years ago
an attempt was made to float a com
pany to work the sulphur, which is ol
high quality, but sufficient capital was
not subscribed. Therefore the export
of sulphur from White island Is still
very small. In the interior is a lake
fully fifty acres in extent, the water
of which has a temperature of 110 de
grees F. and is strongly impregnated
with acids. On one side of this lake
are craters from which steam escapes
with great force and noise. This
steam and the vapor from the Jak
