To D. W. Johnson of Port Byron
was given the $5 chair which was
the prize offered to the oldest set
tler in attendance. Mr. Johnson was
born in Rock Island In November,
1833, and he has lived continuously
in the county the greater part of
the time since. His nearest compet
itor for honors was Mrs. E. Hoover,
who came to the county Jan. 31,
Phil Mitchell gave the address of
welcome. The chief address was by
J. B. Oakleaf of Moiine.
DITY TO THE FATHERS.
Mr. Oakleaf said in part:
"Every generation owes a duty to
the succeeding generation, in fact,
it Is a legacy that each generation
must leave to the succeeding genera
tion, and that legacy should be a
true record of what that generation
knew, had seen or .witnessed, for the
best history is made up from the
reminiscences of the people at the
time when the event occurred, and
the writing of that history should
not be left till the generation has
passed away. The most valuable
history is now hidden away in news
papers and magazines and if such
newspapers and N magazines are pre
served, the future historian can then
compile a creditable history of the
time of which he is writing. I am
sorry that no one has written a true
history of this county. If such a his
tory had been written 50 years ago
much that is now lost would have
been preserved to future generations.
A very creditable history of the city
of Davenport was written in 1858,
and that history is priceless. Rome
one in Davenport, or Scott county,
should continue it from that time to
is soon i.ovr.
"As I stated, much interesting his
tory and details are hidden in the
files of tlie newspapers, but the his
tory that is being saved through our
local papers wiil soon he lost, for
the reason that the paper that Is now
being used is not permanent and it
will take but a comparatively few
years to make the print illegible. A
law should be passed making it obli
gatory upon the local press to print
on good serviceable paper that will
last throughout all time, two or
three copies of each edition and each
volume bound and filed at the court
house and that the expense of such
printing and binding should be
borne by the county. Every genera
tion is making history that should
be preserved for there are many peo
ple who can give valuable informa
ticn, but lacking terminal facilities
much valuable information is lost.

"We have a County Historical so
ciety, alHliated with the state his
torical society, of which I have the
honor of being secretary, yet we are
not get'ing much material for future j
use, but it is a beginning and we 1
trust that the membership will in
crease bo as to include some of the
leading citizens from each township
in the county.
"We have an Interesting county
and from an historical point of view
it 13 one of the grt-atest counties
in Illinois. We little realize its
beauty, its historical interest or its
setting, but strangers within out
gates will go away charmed with its
beauty, its legends and history. We
know that the historian nearly a
hundred years ago wrote the truth
when he stated, 'getting down a pair
of compasaes large enough to in
clude 35 miles around the lower end
of Rock Island and taking a sweep
around it, you would have within
the circle the handsomest and most
delightful spot of the same size on
the whole globe, so far as nature can
produce anything called beautiful.'
With such evidence nearly a century
old, we should not fall to perpetuate
the history of that beautiful spot to
which the writer refers.

was bounded cn the west by the Miss

river, in a line drawn from the
"great bend in the Mississippi to the
Illinois river." This line la the
south line of Rock Island county end

on account of the advantages held
out by the government to the sol

WHEN LINCOLN WAS FIERR
"This county, as you know, leaded
strongly toward the Whig doctrine
and consequently was very pro
nounced in abolition sentiments. Be
ing a hard county to reach from
other parts of the state, it was for
that reason that very few speaker
of a national reputation came into
Rock Island county. I have asserted,
and no one has been able to prove
to the contrary, that the only time
Abraham Lincoln was even ln this
county was when he came here as a
volunteer in the Black Hawk war,
and never got north of Rock river in
this county. He was north and
south of us, for we have evidence of
the fact that he surveyed the town
of New Boston, just below us a few
miles on the Mississippi, and he sur
veyed the town of Albany, immed
iately north of us. He evidently
went to Albany by steam boat, em
barking down river somewhere and It
may be that when the steam boat,
that carried him up the river, land
ed at Rock Island, which It evidently
did, he may have gone on 6hore, but
that is merely a conjecture. If this
county had been a county' with
strong pro-slavery sentiments, Abra
ham Lincoln would have been here
and done his part towards bringing
