GREAT DOINGS ARE
When Champ Clark, Colonel
Lewis and P. J. Lucey Come
to Bock Island.
HOLDS TAFT AND T. R.
TRUST VIEWS WRONG
The officers of the democratic coun
ty committee and the Wilson Demo
cratic club met last evening at the
democratic headquarter In the Rock
Island house and named a reception
committee for the democratic gala day
exercises In Rock Island next Monday.
The committee, whi:h is composed of
democrats of Rock Island and Moline
and the county at large, is to act as
escort to the distinguished speakers of
ths day, Colonel James Hamilton
Lewis and P. J. Lucey, who speak in
the afternoon at the Illinois theatre,
and to Speaker Champ Clark, who will
be heard In the evening at 8 o'clock at
the same place.
The action of the county committee
and the Wilson club in extending a
special Invitation to ladies to be pres
ent at both the afternoon and evening
meetings at the Illinois theatre, is
meeting with general approval. The
committee propones to Bee that the
best accommodations in the house are
reserved for the ladies, and it Is grat
ifying to know that there is a general
desire among the ladies to hear both
Colonel Lewis and Speaker Clark, as
well as Mr. Lucy. Colonel Lewis,
who speaks in the afternoon, is regard
ed as one of the most finished oratora
In the country. His addresses, on what
ever subject, are regarded as classics,
and he la such a platform speaker that
people as a rule would gladly give a
good round price to hear him in any
Chautauqua course. It will cost noth
ing to hear him on the issues of the
campaign at the Illinois theatre next
Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. P. J.
Lucey la also an entertaining talker.
And aa for an Speaker Champ Clark,
who will be heard in the evening, is
concerned, who does not. want to see
and bear Champ Clark, one of the no
blest of the public men of his day hon
est and fearless, a statesman, of the
old school, a grand old s'ithern gen
tleman, beloved by his party and by
the public generally as few men have
been In all the country's annals.
Champ Clark will pack the house in
the evening and Colonel Lewis and Mr.
Lucey will have a big audience in the
nieuer a band will furnish music on
both occasions, and In the selection of
airs, the good old "Houn' Dawg" song
will not be lost sight of.
It will be a great occasion In Rock
Island, both afttrnoon and evening.
At Work On Loop Again.
Real work on the eomf! i ion of the
section of track which will make the

Louis Brandeia, the eminent Boston
lawyer, is proving a great help to
Wilson In the present campaign.
Brandeia la a republican, but believes
that Taft if too friendly to the big
Interesta and that Roosevelt's plan to
regulate rather than destroy the trusts
U wrong. Brandeia believes that
Wilson's plan of destroying monopoly
whenever possible is correct and for
this reason is using all his influence
In behalf of the democratic candidate.

One of the Most Significant
Developments of the Cam
paign in New York.
New York, Oct 8. One of the most
significant developments of the pres
ent presidential campaign has been
the large number of republicans of
national prominence who have sacri
ficed their party to come out la sup
port of Governor Wood row Wilson's
candidacy. More than 40,000 of these
republicans, all whom avow progres
aire principles, are to be found this
fall fighting in the raaks with the
forces of the New Jersey governor.
Their alienation from their old polit
ical kinsmen is due in almost every
instance to their conviction that the
time has arrived when they should
put aside mere party fea'.ty for a cause
based en higher principles. While
ardent republicans at heart, they find
absolutely no inspiration in the lead
ership of President Taft because of
his generally admitted reactionary be
liefs and they have no sympathy for
Colonel Roosevelt's third term move
ment. Governor Wilson, in this crisis,
seemed to measure up to their esti
mate as a true progressive and they
decided to cast their political fortunes
Most notable perhaps among these
dissenting progressive republicans are
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, the govern
ment's former chief chemist; Rudo'.ph
Spreckels, whose war on graft and
civic corruption in San Francisco
has made him a national figure; Louis
Brandies, the noted Boston lawyer-reformer;
United States Senator John
D. Works of California; Senator
Robert M. La Follette, who is devot
ing his trenchant pen to Governor
Wilson's cause; Senator John J. Blaln
of Wisconsin, one of Senator La Fel
lette's chief aides in the fight for the
republican presidential nomination;
Jacob Schiff, the noted banker-philanthropist;
Claus A. Spreckles, the Cali
fornia sugar refiner who has spent
a fortune and 15 years of his life in
a war on the sugar trust; his brother,
John O. Spreckels, publisher of the
San Francisco Call and a life-lojg
republican; Wallace Batchelder, law
yer and former Roosevelt rough rider,
who was the third term party's state
chairman in Vermont before his split
with Colonel Roosevelt; Dr. J. N. Hur
ty, health officer of Indiana; Dr. Wil
liam Jay Schieffelin, wealthy philan
thropist and civic reformer; Jacob
Schiff. banker-philanthropist; Charles
R. Crane of Chicago; Raymond B.
Fosdlm, former commissioner of pub-
lie accounts of New York; John B.
Rathom, publisher of 1he Providence,
I R. I., Journal ; Rev. Madison C. Peters,
for years active in civic reform In
New York; Erman J. Rid sway, pub
lisher of Everybody's Magazine; Hej
ry C. Niles, former Pennsylvania state
chairman of the Lincoln party; Sam
uel S. Fels, manufacturer, of Philadel
phia; Powell ' Evans, manufacturer.
Philadelphia, and a host of others of
All of these notable men, represent
ing as they do every shade of busi
ness, social and Industrial activity,
are giving their support to Governor
Wilson through purely disinterested
motives. They believe that his elec
toin will mean an end of the sys
tem of special privilege fostered tra
der successive republican administra
tions and a return of governmental
control to the people.
New York, Oct. 8. More than 40,000
progressive republicans have pledged
their support to Governor Wilson
through the Wilson National Progres
sive republican league. These figures
are taken from the enrollment lists
of the league, which now has .head
quarters in New York, Philadelphia!
Chicago, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Pitts
burgh and San Francisco. The organ
ization of this league, the Influence
of which will be significant in the
November election, is the result of
a little more than six weeks' work.
That is has become nation-wide is due
largely to the activities of Rudolph
Spreckels, the wealthy San Francisco
reformer, who has spent the past 10
years in an uncompromising war on
all forms of graft and governmental
dishonesty; Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, the
government's former chief chemist,
and Senator John J. Blaine of Wiscon
sin, law partner of Senator La Fol
lette and chief aide of the senator id
his fight for the republican presiden
tial nomination. These men, likely
many thousands of Senator La Fol-
lette's loyal supporters, were deeply
disappointed at the failure of the re
publican convention to name a pro
gressive candidate. Not realizing on
the hopes of Senator La Follette, they
would have been satisfied with a pro
gressive of the type of Governor Had-
ley of Missouri, or Senator Cummins
of Iowa. They declined to follow Col
onel Roosevelt out of the republican
party because they had not sympathy
with the third term movement. The
fight to purge the republican party of
its reactionary element should be
made within the party, they held, and
not as adherents of the colonel, who
to the former La Follette supporters
is in no sense a progressive,
Soon after the Chicago convention
Rudolph Spreckels called a meeting of
a group of leading progressive re
publicans in Chicago. In addition to
Dr. WMley and Senator Blaine, Mr.
Spreckels consulted with Senator La
Follette auid Louis Brandeis, the noted
lawyer and reformer. They gave their
warm endorsement of the league move
ment. Other meetings were held in
San Francisco, New York and Chica
go, the result of which was a decision
to support Governor Wilson because
he in the Judgment of the league mem-

TRIBUNE SEES A
CHANGE FOR TAV
Even Republican Paper Admits
Judge Searle Can Hardly
The Chicago Tribune of today says:
It was announced yesterday that the
only two speeches Champ Clark will
make in Illinois during the presiden
tial campaign will be made by the
speaker for his personal friend, Clyde
H. Tavenner, a Washingtoa corre
spondent, whose residence is in Cor
dova, and who is running for congress
on the democratic ticket in the Four
teenth Illinois district.
"The two addresses will be made on
Oct. 14. One will be in Monmouth
on the afternoon of that day, and the
other in Rock Island in the evening.
Mr. Clark has said that he would
rather make the speeches for Taven
ner than 'any man in America.'
"The situation in the 14th dis
trict is an interesting one. Although
the district normally is republican by
about 4,000, Tavenner stands an ex
cellent chance of winning the con
gressional seat, it is asserted. His op
ponent is C. J. Searle,' an attorney.
Searle is the nomiaee of the Taft re
publicans, but is said to be favoring
"In addition to having the support
of Champ Clark and other democratic
leaders, as well as the democratic
organization in the district. Taven

Dr. Harvey W. Wiley declares the
most important campaign document
yet issued by the democratic national
committee is a booklet prepared for
tbe Woman's National Wilson and
Marshall organization. It discloses
some new and startling facts in con
nection with the long fight for pure
food. It hsows how the efforts of the
bureau on pure food were blocked by
the administrations of both Roosevelt
and Taft. These booklets are going
to be distributed this year throughout
the country by the democratic na
In the booklet Mrs. Borden Harrl
man, president of the national organ
ization, makes a strong appeal to the
women of the country in which she
"No subject is more vital to women
than health in the home. No function
is so essentially the women's func
tion as the protection of the food sup
ply, the protection of sanitary and
hygienic working conditions and the
general conservation of human life.
I therefore appeal to the patriotio
women of America for their active
participation in the present great
light which, is being waged by the
Wilson and Marshall campaign in be
half of these measures."
The General Federation of Women's
Clubs at tbe biennial conference held
June 26-July 6, declared that "the ad
ministration of the department of ag
riculture has been and is such that
at present the" law is prostituted for
the benefit of the special interests
and the welfare of the people Is Ig
nored," and adopted a resolution call
ing upon the president to "so organ
ize the department that the food and
drug act shall in the future be hon
estly administered in the interest of
the consumers of the nation."
The operations of the "invisible
government" in permitting the adul
terators of foods to go unprosecuted
and thus protecting the interests, is
reviewed, and the situation Is sum
med up as follows:
"The law as passed by congress was
Intended to be administered In the
Interest of the consumer. The law as
modified by the executive orders of

How Ho Would Stop Dueling.
Dueling survived in England until
about tbe middle of the forties, "when,"
says Lady Dorothy Nevlll. "an en
counter between Lieutenant Colonel
Fawcett and Lieutenant Monro. In
which the former was shot dead, led
to a debate in the house of commons
owing to the wife of the former being
refused a pension. On this occasion
Sir Charles Napier declared that but
one way existed of effectually putting
an end to dueling. No duel should be
allowed which was not fought across
a table. Of the two pistols ased only
one should be loaded with ball, lota
being drawn to see who should have
the loaded one. If this produced no
result then both pistols should be load
ed with ball and the survivor, abould
there be one, hanged."
Ad vie From Her Lawyer.
Timothy Coffin, who was prominent
at the Bristol county bar in the last
century, once secured the acquittal of
an old woman accused of stealing a
piece of pork. As she was leaving tbe
courtroom she put ber band to ber
