The funeral ceremonies of the late
State's Attorney Patrick O'Mara were
held at 3t. Joseph's Catholic church at 9
o'clock this morning and the large edifice
was fillt d. Judge Glenn, of the circuit
court. Judge Adams, of the county court,
and the majority of the members of the
bar of llock Island county, were present,
as wen all the county officials. Buford
post, 243, G. A. R., Mayor McConochie
and a number of council men and Magis
trate Wivill, Marshal Miller and the po
lice in a body. Sheriff Silvis acted as
The ceremonies, which were conducted
by Rev. Father Thomas Mackin, were in
accordance with the solemn ritual of the
Roman Catholic church, and the sermon
by Fatter Mackin was one of that rever
end gentleman's best efforts an eloquent
tribute to the dead attorney.
It seemed but as yesterday, the preacher
said, that the voice of Hon. Patrick
O'Mara, now hushed in silence forever,
was eloquently lifted up on behalf of the
dignity, peace and justice of Illinois.
Then h3 stood before the earthly tribunal
pleadin,; his cause that the sacred trust
reposed in him to guard the rights of the
people might not be imposed upon. Now
he has irone before a higher court the
tribunal of Jesus Christ. Then was
given a short sketch of the life of the
decease!, during which reference was
made to the fact of his parents fleeing
from Inland, his father dying on ship
board and the widow coming to America,
the asylum of the oppressed, the land of
charity, generosity and love, with her
childreti. The speaker alluded to the
troubles and disadvantages that beset
the young man, Patrick O'Mara, on every
side in his early years, there being no
schools and his mother was in almost
destitute circumstances. He managed to
keep bisself clothed until the war broke
out, when, being seized with that spirit of
patriotism that is born of love of home,
he went to the battlefield and contribu
ted aa far as he could individually for the
putting down of the rebellion and the
establishment of the rights and liberties
of all people for all time to come. But
coming out of the war this patriot and
youthfi 1 hero found there were still things
to overcome before he could be a full
man among his fellow men. He must
overcone ignorance, and with other
weapons of warfare he must fight an
other fl ht equally as hard for him as the
other, t ut of a different kind. So he
left hone again, and when he again re
turned be had conquered as well as on
the firs .
Still be bad one difficulty to overcome
yet poverty. But with the same un
failing, unflinching will power that
always carried him through, be set
about ti advance himself in bis chosen
profess on to the best of bis ability.
While he had neither the attainments of
Gladstt ne, the dash of Logan or the gifts
of a Webster, he was able to show him
self a s ildier, a statesman and a lawyer.
He overcame as far as his own strength
would go, the rebellion; he overcame
ignoraiice and he overcame poverty.
The speaker dwelt upon the great will
power which had been characteristic of
bis ear y life, shown also by Mr. O'Mara
in his final illness how be persistently
stuck to the duties of bis office when too
feeble r.o de so and when he should have
been in bed. He spoke of the generosity
of his disposition; his gentle sympathetic
nature and his desire at all times to do
right, though he may have failed;
and i Jl such times he deeply re
CTetted his mistake. He was pos
sessed of the qualities of a gentleman,
and his face though emaciated and
with the ashen hue of death upon it,
was a perfect picture of tenderness and
sweetness. But the soul of Patrick
O'Mara was free from earthly care and
struggle, freer than be could make it,
while te aits in communion with ethers
who hid gone before, and with Jesus
Christ as the great tribunal.
At the close of the ceremony opportu
nity wiia given to view the remains, and
a great many did so. The body rested
in a miignificent casket of red cedar and
broad cloth covering, heayily draped and
with solid silver mountings. Though the
face w is greatly emaciated, as would .be
expected from long illness, yet the ex
pressicn was natural and composed.
The floral tributes were very profuse
and h radsome, an open book with the
words "Final Decree" in blue immortelles,
from the county bar association, a beau
tiful star from Maj. Beardsley and a cross
from tie family being the most noticea
ble. Mr. J. V. Mahoney was summoned to
bis hoiae at Sioux City last night, and a
change in the list of pall bearers became
necessary, Wm. Corcoran being substi
tuted, the others being as orignally
planned, James Byrnes, J. M. Beardsley,

A TOKEN OF ESTEEM.
Frtattpal W. H. Hatch Pretested
With aa Elesaat Tlate Fleee by the
The most astonished man ia Rock Isl
and this morning was W. H. Hatch, the
principal of the Rock Island high school.
When upon awakening, he reached under
his pillow for his time piece to see what
the hour was, he was surprised to find
that he grasped a heavy gold watch in
stead of the silver one he is accustomed
to carrying. His first impression, natur
ally enough, was that he waa still asleep,
and dreaming, but when after rubbing bid
eyes and taking another look at the gold
piece, he found a little letter of explana
tion attached to it, he thought different
ly, for be read "With best wishes of
graduates, present high school and teach
ers." The beautiful gift is an indication
of the high esteem in which Mr. Hatch,
who is about to retire from the principal
ship of the high school, is held by his as
sistants and pupils. The watch is of
solid gold, with Waltham movement, and
has every improvement that the most
modern genius of the watchmaker's skill
can provide. It was ordered expressly
through Mr. H. D. Folsom, the jeweler,
and the engraving is a part of the best
workmanship, the figures '89 appearing
on the outer case, while on the inside
case is a wonderfully accurate miniature
engraving of the new high school build
ing and below it the words, "W. H.
Hatch." Nothing could have touched
Mr. Hatch deeper than this design, for
the building is one of his greatest sources
or pride, he having been very largely in
strumental in securing its erection, and
in fact planning, to a large extent, the
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Hatch made
an address to both teachers and pupils in
which he bid them farewell and this
morning he feelingly expressed his ap
preciation of the gift and his acceptance

The Davenports lost again yesterday,
having dropped its seventh successive
game since leaving home. The club has
been handicapped siuce the injury of
Kappel and Harrington . Yesterday's de
feat sent them down to fourth place.
Within a week or two the club will be in
excellent shape to play ball, and there is
every reason to believe that they will
aoon be at the top again. Yesterday the
club signed Yaik. catcher. He played
last season with Wheeling, W. Va., the
same league with which Allen and Rout
cliffe played. He began this season with
the Pittsburgs and was released to the
Detroits, when the Pittsburgs signed
Wells, of Kansas City. This was early in
the season. Shortly after signing with
the Detroits he sprained his ankle and
was unable to play and was released. He
comes here with an excellent record. He
caught more games than any other
catcher but one in the Tri-state league
last season. He ranked seventh out of
22 catchers. Yaik will report Saturday,

Hoyt's "Bunch of Keys" was present
ed to a fair audience at Harper's theatre
last evening, and a greater quantity of
stuff and nonsense has not been put upon
a Rock Island stage for some time. The
musical features were all that held the
audience, and they were first class, the
quartette rendition of "Hard Times,"
and "Suanee River," being of the high
est merit, as was the trio Bong, "Razzle
Dazzle." . Miss Florence Hamilton, a beautiful
and accomplished actress, supported by
a strong company, will begin a week's
engagement at Harper's theatre next
Monday night. Miss Hamilton will pre
sent a list of plays entirely new to popu
lar price companies, opening in Bartley
Campbell's successful drama, "Divorce,"
and during the engagement the "Shaugh
ran." "American Born," "My Husband."
"The Lost Child," "Clear Grit" and Chaa.
Dickens' masterpiece, "Oliver Twist."
With this repertoire there is no question
but what Miss Hamilton will play to a
successful week's business.
