The petition asking Mr. Fred. Hass to
contest the election of Wm. McConoehie
as mayor of Rock Island continues to re
ceive signatures, and there is ever; indi
cation that it will be of such a charac
ter, when it reaches Mr. Hass, that he
will feel it his duty to make the contest.
He stated this morning:, that he was per
fectly willing to do so as he believed
the outcome of such proceedings would
elect him mayor, but he wouldn't enter
into a matter of so much consequence
and one which requires so much atten
tion, simply on his own behalf. If he
had assurances that it was the wish of his
friends, be would go into it, with deter
mioation and energy to obtain his righto,
no matter how much trouble and incon
enience it caused him.

known to the police as an inebriate, was
picked np on Twenty-third street near
Fifth avenue last night in a demoralized
condition, from imbibing too much
"jam-maker ginger," as she termed it,
and complained otit giving her crumps .
She was carried into a yard and detained
until the police patrol could be sent for.
Meanwhile ahe talked so much about her
premonitions of death, that Dr. Barth was
aent for, but pronounced it a case that
need cause no alarm. The patrol wagon
finally arrived and, on the way to the
station, the safron hued princess enter
tained Deputy Marshal Kramer and offi
cer Cary on the evils of too much
"jam maker ginger. This morning
she was taken into the anguished pres

Mr. Jacob Wait will represent the town
of Edgingtoo on the board of supervisors
for the ensuing year. The returns made
by the election board showed a tie vote
between Mr. R. Montgomery, the repub
lican candidate, and himself. Yesterday
it was decided to draw lots for the place.
Two slips of paper were placed in a box,
the word "supervisor" being written on
one, and the other left blank. Mr.
Montgomery waived the privilege ef his
opponent drawing first, and Wait brought
the "supervisor' slip out, thus winning
In regard to the Edgington elec
tion, however, a gentleman from
that neighborhood said today that
when the ballots were being count
ed one democratic ticket was found
with Jacob Wait's name scratched and
the letters "R. M." substituted, which
was counted for Mr. Montgomery. The
judge, John Morton, at first refused to
count the vote at all, and also one sim
ilarly marked with the initials of the re
publican candidate for assessor over Mr.
Elliott's name, but when the footings
showed one majority for Mr. Wait, he re
versed his decision, and announced the
result a tie on supervisor. Ot course if
Mr. Montgomery had received a majority
without that vote, it would never have
been counted for him. As it was Morton
was compelled to stultify himself and
show his intense partisanship to give Mr
Montgomery another chance by lottery or
a new election.
Mr. W. J. Oahagen, township collector
for Rock Island, has settled with County
Treasurer Scbafer. His return shows the
largest collection ever made by a collec

deavored to fill the office of collector ac
cording to the law governing that office
and has collected over 80 per cent of the
personal tax levy a record he may well
feel pioud of, for be is the first collector
to insist upon the payment of personal
tax, and while he may have made a few
enemies by enforcing the law, be should
have the approval of all the taxpayers of
this city. He acted wisely in the ap

Event ar the Centennial Anniversary
the Thirtieth r thlalMonth.
On Tuesday, the 30th of this month
three weeks from yesterday the cities of
importance throughout the country are
preparing in some way to commemorate
the centennial anniversary of the inaugur
ation of the first president of the United
States, Oen. Geo. Washington. It has
been suggested, and the proposition is
not only a patriotic but a wise one, that
Rock Island be not behind otherjeities in
this mode of patriotic demonstration and
The president of the United States has
issued a proclamation calling upon the
people everywhere to fittingly give thanks
to the Giver of all Good for the hun
dred years of prosperity as a nation that
the United States of America are about
to pass. In conformity with this procla-.
mation the bishops of the Episcopal
church have instructed the clergy
throughout the land to hold services on
the morning of the day at 9 o'clock using
the same form ot worship that. Washing
ton participated in one, -hundred years
ago. Obedient to. thts order Rev. R. F.
Sweet, rector -of Trinity parish, bas ar
ranged Jor services at Trinity church at
9 o'clock in the morning of the anniver
sary day, and in which the Rodman
Rifles, Buford post, G. A. R. and Beards-
ley camp, Sons of Veterans, have been
invited to take part. The Rifles have ac
cepted the invitation and the other mili
tary organizations are quite likely to do
But there has been a suggestion that
Rock Island as a city assume the respon
sibility of a patriotic celebration on the
evening of the day which is to be so
fittingly observed, rcgligiously in the
morning. The plan is not an expensive
one, but it is to get suitable fireworks,
request a general illumination of build
ings and business streets and have a
torchlight procession, with plenty of
powder and a racket such as is character
istic of the Fourth of July.
The Flambeau club of the late cam
paign still has its uniforms and torches
and this company, together with the mil
itary organizations of the city, might
provide a parade that would do the occa
sion the honor that a city like Rock Isl
and should provide. It is the aim, of
course, to make the celebration whollv
non-political, and such it would be.
Here are ideas that the Citizens' Im
provement association might consider at
its meeting tomorrow night. Will Rock
Island be behind other cities in its spirit
of patriotism and local pride?

Washington City, April 10. The general
land office is n aking every effort to get the
offices at Kingfisher Station and Guthrie,
Oklahoma, ready for business by noon on the
23d, when the territory will be opened, but
it is going to be pretty difficult. No postoifica
is open at either place. At Guthr.ujra' post

has not yet filed his bond, and there may be
some delay about getting his office opened.
The office hers is not informed whether King

of ap.y klud. It is twenty-five or thirty miles
from a railroal, and th. facilities for build

No end of trouble is anticipated from the
enormous rush into this very limited tract.
For every well-watered and well-situated
quarter nectioi there will be a dozen claim
ants, and they will all initiate their claims so
nearly simultaneously that the only witnesses
will be rival claimants. It will thus be sim
ply impossible to determine who located first,
and hundreds of disputes will have to be set
tled by a prim tive appeal to force. It will
be a wise course for every man who wants a
slice of Oklaho na to get on it at the earliest
possible niome at after noon on the 23d of
April and devote himself to making a bur
row or a hat a id breaking up a little ground
for a crop. H- bas three months alter mak

Somewhere between four-fifths and nine
tenths of the people who are going to rush
into Oklahoma a week from next Monday
will get no land because there won't be land
enough to go round They will be pretty
certain to camp down on all the unoccupied
lands of tber.vilized Indian tribes. It is
very doubtful if the government would at
tempt to drive them off these lands by the
bayonet, and nothing less than the entire
army could accomplish it The boomers will
get the land, an. 1 the govern mailt will probably
settle with the Indians. The Cherokee out
let, containing some 6,000,000 acres, may also
be thrown open by the president's proclama
tion as soon as the commissioners and the In
dians agree on the terms of cession, and as
this tract is three times as large as the por
tion of Oklahoma, that will lie opened on the

lief to the throngs that will be inside Okla

Secretary Rusk Insues a Pamphlet for the
Ileueftt of Granger.
Washington City, April 10. The first
document pub.ished under the authority of
Governor Rusk, secretary of agriculture, is
"Bulletin No. 1" about the agricultural ex
periment stations of the department of agri
culture. This pamphlet, advanoe copies of
which were furnished to the press last night,
contains a great deal of information relating
to the history and prospects of the agricul
tural experiment stations, which are now con
ducting scientific and practical experiments
on soils, manw-es, tillage, crops, stock feed
ing, dairying, horticulture, eta, in the differ
ent states. tSich institutions for scientific
investigation ir behalf of agriculture have
been long in operation in Europe. The first
one in this country was begun in Connecticut,
in the chemical laboratory of Wesle an uni
versity fourteen years ago. Other states fol
lowed the exan pie, and in 1S87 congress es
poused the enterprise and appropriated $15,
000 per annum to each state and territory for
the purpose. 1 he enterprise has enlisted in
its support the bast universities and colleges
and the ablest investigators of the country,
as well as a pre-it army of practical farmers,
to whom it has already brought substantial
All the states and one territory Dakota
now have agricultural experiment stations.
Several states have two; Louisiana has
three. The tofcil number now in operation
is forty-six, or. counting branch stations,
nearly sixty. They employ more than 370
scientists and agriculturists, and receive this
year $.W5.000 from the national government
and about tl-5 000 from the states and other
sources. This is one of the most important
of the government scientific enterprises, and,
although so young, is the largest of the sort
yet undertaken by any nation. An especially
favorable feature is the cordial co-operation
between the stations and the de
partment of agriculture at Washington,
which is charged by congress with the
duty of superri ling and aiding the stations in
their work. The office of experimental sta
tions, acting w ith the Association of Amer
ican Agricultural colleges and Experiment
stations, is able to accomplish much in thU
Una There is thus established a direct con
nection between the national department and
the people of tha country, which must result
m great good.
The bulletin xmtains an introduction by
Secretary Rust, who considers it a high
tribute to the intelligence and wjsdom of
the people that tbey have so rapidly appreci
ated the usefulness of thus "calling the
highest science to the aid of the arts and in
dustries of life. ''

World regarding the municipal elections in
Montana territory from Butte, M. T., say:
''Reports from Anaconda, Deer Lodge,
and Missoula show that they, as well as this
city, went Democratic, while Helena, Boze
man, and Great Falls went Republican.
Sixty per cent of the vote lies west of the
Rocky mountain range. Monday's election
is conceded by the most conservative Repub
licans to mean two United States senators
and a representative for the Democracy. Mr.
(. lark, the candidate for delegate to oongress
last fall, and Marcus Daly, mansger of the
Great Anaconda works, labored for the Dem
ocrats. 'In Butte City the Republicans elected two
aldermen, out of seven, the Democrats elect
ing the mayor, treasurer, city attorney and
the rest of the Democratic ticket. Anacon

now goes Democratic by 650. Butte went
Republican last fall by 1,500; it is now Demo

THE BURNING WAGES QUESTION.
Trouble It re wing at the Ohio Coat Mines
Operators In Council.
Colcmbi s, O., April 10. A meeting of
Ohio coal oivrators was held here vesterdav
for the pill-pi' of discussing the mining sit
uation, uiiieh is growing critical in this
stato. Several meetings of the miners bave
been held here recently for the purpose of de
fining a policy relative to the scale of prices
for next year's work, which begins on May
1. Tim operators declare that, Iwenuse of
western competition, they can not alTord to
continue paying the 'present scale, while the
miners are loth to accept any re
duction. Consequently serious strikes in
various parts of the state will be the
result unless some definite arrangement be
tween the operators and miners ismade
very soon. No positive agreement could be
made by the ojerators relative to the scale
question, as the majority of them absolutely
refuse to make any concessions to the miners.
It was. however, ilecidiKl to send a delega
tion of the opera tors to the joint meeting of
the miners and operators at Pittsburg, which
will he held on Monday neit It is thought
that by placing the matter before this con
vention the dispute mav be settled.
