TrtK simple announcement hy llie
Atutrs that Hon. W. r . Crawford was
looking forward to the senatorial nomina1
tion nt'Xt fall, hits caused a vial of wrath
to explode in the vicinity of the Moline
lltmibHcnn office, litre it) what that
paper Bay about it:
This (littrict will not make uch amis
take the republican party fdinuld not.
A "wooden tuan" wottlil serve tis as well
and the time has come when there should
he a ton to mich nonsense. Fvl'n have
a man of recognized ahility . If there-
puhlican party cannot unite on a more
acceptable man than he ami we believe
they can the voter hsd belter empha
ize their disapproval at the ballot box.
As we have previously said, Crawford
makes a eood farmer, but that is the
place for him.
It will now be in order for Bro. Craw
ford to ro tip to Moline the next time he
cornea to town with a load of pumpkins
and leave the largest in the lot for the
Republican editor. This is the way to
win his heart.
I'ollflrn In the orihweot
The republicans believe they are sure
of carrying north anil south Dakota and
Washington, and while they are not
1opeful of Montana, they are preparing
to make a light to carry every one of the
new states on a plan that seems to take
nothing for granted. They will send
money anil their best managers and
speakers into the norlhwest. They htve
already begun active operations there,
and the democratic national committee
has no time to lose in counter opera
tions. The St. Louis lltpub'ic says it must
iiot be taken for granted that the demo
cratic party cannot gain a foothold in the
northwest. We have Montana already,
and we will hoKl it unless it is deliberate
ly thrown away. In Washington, the
party has good prospects and in North
Dakota excellent fighting ground.
Nothing of this must be surrendered
and the fight must be made
more. The circumstances are all favor
able to the democrats. A republican
president who is daily becoming more
unpopular has undertaken to control the
politics of the new states from the Dis
trict of Columbia. The administration
system of patronage bosaism is in full
play in all of them. Its disadvantages to

who are favored by the administration
With encouragement and help from the
national committee, the local democrats
can be stimulated to equal activity. If
they see a chance for an aggressive cam
paign, they will not f ail to accomplish
more than is expected of them; but if the
party, nationally, surrenders the control
of the new states, nothing that can be
done locally wi;l overcome the lead the
republican party already 1ms in Washing
ton and the two Dukotus. All four of
the new states must be fought for from
the start. And it is time to start.

There is only one wav to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an intUaied con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the ins
tlammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucus surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any rase of deafness (caused by catarrh )

New York, July 2. The Clyde line
steamship Oziitna, which was cnptunnl by

at the Erie basin, Rrooklyn. Her captain
C O. Kockwel , the son of Commander
Rockwell of the Yantie," V. S. N., was seen
by a United Press reporter, to whom he
gave the following version of the affair
The Oruma Stopped.
"On the morning of June 9," he said
"when we were about thirty-two miles from
Oonaives, we sighted a fleet of three vessels
who evidently intended to intercept our
vessel. They pi oved to be the thn-e gun
boats of Presi lent Legitime, named La

The La IVfeuse rinxl a shot across our lions
and commanded that we should heave to,
and sent a boat alongside iu charge of the
first officer witl instructions that I should
at once come aboard the La Defense and re
port to the captain of that vessel.

"My answer to the above was that if the

I didn't prt'Kise leaving it. When the Hay

American mil iiter then demanded the reason
of the seizure by tho Haytien government,
and also a proi ipt release. No reply was
received that di y to this demand.
The 0ippen Take a Hand.
"The next morning at daylight the United

that the Izama was going U (iounives and
that he proposed taking her there. Tho re

London, July 2. The city of Naples, iu
Italy, began house cleaning yesterday on a
scale never la-fore paralleled in the history
of municipalities in any part of the globe.
The plnns contemplate the demolition of
,000 houses and sixty-t wo churches in the
most thickly settled and most squalid parU
of the city, where the narrow Btroets, filled
with perennial lilth, breed pestilence and
death. It is promised to erect in their stead
well built houses and to lay out fine, broad
streets, that will let in the air and the sun
shine to the inhabitants.
l'aekod Like Sardine.
Naples is the most thickly populated city
tu Europe, and the quarter to be thus re-
vatisi contains now a population of 10S,-
dl, or (KH to the acre. It is propose.! to re-
luce this population just one half. All the
(eoplo now residing in these slums have re
ceived notice to quit, and when tho -work has
Ikvii completed the new buildings will pro
bably have an entirely new set of occupants.
The Work anil the- Cost.
The cost of this immense improvement will
lie enormous and is to Iki borne largely by
the Italian L'overnment. 1 lie work to lie
done involves tho destruction of 144 old
streets and the widening of 127 others, the
total or partial destruction of fifty-six
fondaci, or slums, ninl 5-7 isolated groiqw of
houses. The (.ayments which will have to
tie made to the owners of the houses to lie
torn down, for their appraised value will
alone amount to i"'.,7.V.00O. Add to this the
cost of the work of demolition, mid of the
new streets and squares to lie laid out nnd it
will le seen that this is the most exieusive
piece of house cleaning ever undertaken.
Nearly 12,(mo laborers were set to work
yesterday tearing down the filthy old rook
eries in the doomed quarter.
A CJreat Sanitary Improvement.
This improvement, it is expecte 1, will take
four years to complete, but when finished it
will make the city one of tho most desirable
from a sanitary s.int of view in F.uroe, in
stead of what it is now, the very worst. The
improvements have lioen contemplated ever
since tlio great ciioiera epidemic ol jsm.
which so thoroughly demonstrated their
necessity, but it was not until two months
ago that the Italian parliament passed a bill
authorizing the work.
THE IRISH QUESTION UP.
Sextan and Gladstone Criticise the Tories
aud Mulfunr Has Something to Say.
IaiNDon, July 2. Iu tho house of com
mons last evening Thomas Sexton made a
motion to adjourn, and delivered a sin'ech in
which he spoke in unmeasured criticism of
the action of the government officials in
"precipitating riot and bloodshed" at Cork
Sunday. He challenged the ministers to
attempt some adequate explanation of their
conduct, and soko of Sunday's events in
Cork as the most memorable and the most
disgraceful that had occurred even under the
present regime of force and brutality. Ked-
uiotid also sistke. and in a most impassioned
spiwh accused the government of promoting
blo.xlsh.sl and exciting turmoil to further
their own unholy purposes.
Gladstone said that the government did
not reply to most serious allegations which
had been made against them, allegations
which required the fullest explanation. They
could by such ill timed retii"enee he to
stifle inquiry in a direction in which the peo
ple were determined to have the fullest in
formation and they must not complain there
fore if the matter is raised again.
ltnlfour Make Keply.
Balfour rose to defend tho action of the
government. The gentlemen on the other
side, he said, persisted iu siM-aking as thou;
the events iu Cork Sunday constituted a con
viction of the government on every charge
which it as possible for the untrammeled
Imagination of a malignant and unreasoning
opposition to hurl at them. As a matter of
fact, he detiie I that those events furnish even
a prima facie case ugninst tho government.
