The demoorats of Molinu held their
caucuses Wednesday and appointed
nineteen delegates to the county conven
tion which meets tomorrow. Tlicy were
instructed for Mr. Eugene Lewis for
state's attorney. No preferences have
been expressed elsewhere in the county,
but the Indications all point to Mr.
Lewis' unanimous nomination. There is
a growing feeling that be can be elected,
republicans as well as democrats an
nouncing their intention of giving him a
4'aavaoNing for the Fair.
The Hock Island incorporators of the
Rock Island county fair association, be
ing unable to personally attend to the
matter of securing the cooperation of
tbe. farmers in their project, liave secured
the services of Mr. J. N. Iluntoon to
visit the farmers throughout the county
and explain the advantages of the
enterprise to them and solicit subscrip
tions to the capital stock. The pros
pectus of the fair has been published,
and commented upon from time to time
in the Akocs, and it is one that com
mends itself to the farmers, as to all
classes of citizens. It is a matter of in
terest to everybody in the county, and it
is hoped as such it will be looked upon
by the farmers whom Mr. Iluntoon
The Paving Conirarf.
Up to 8 30 this afternoon the contract
between the city and Atkinson & Olof
for the paving of Second avenue had not
been signed by the contracting Arm,
though the contractors are in readiness
toperform their part of tbe agreement,
having secured Messrs. E. P. Reynolds
and J. J. Reimers as bondsmen, and will
no doubt do so before night.
It is not necessary that judgment be
obtained before the work of paving is
commenced, though such action is neces
sary before money can be obtained; a
statement to tbe contrary having been
erroneously made. City Attorney Haas
says tbecity has enough funds tocommence
the work, and he will push the court pro
ceedings as fast as possible and expects
no trouble in obtaining judgments.

Deafness is caused by nn inflamed con

deafness is tbe result, and unless the in

the recipient of most vigorous applause as
He said he had not known that he would be
called upon until just before he left Mr.
Bowen's residence, but would not be so un
civil as to decline to express his thanks for
the hearty welcome ho had received. He
complimented his bearers that their patriot

Chicaoo, July 5. Ths weather yesterday
was all that could lie desired, the heat of tbe
bright sun Isung tempered by a cool breeze
from the north. Business down town was
generally suspended, anil the usually busy
streets were comparatively dtaerteil The
parks were thronged with picnicers, and tba
suburtian trains were crowded with those
desiring to send the day away from the
city. At Cheltenham Beach, where tba
eight-hour demonstration was held, the after
noon entertainment consisted of speeches,
games ami contests for prizes. Speeches
were made by Samuel Gompers, of New

At Riverdale the American league, or
United Order of Deputies held its annual
picnic, Ttie picnic of tha Veteran Union
1-e.gue occurred at Island park, Momence,

Ogdens Grove. Despite the shallow that has
bwn coat upon the Clan-na-Gael society by
the murder of Dr. Cronln and the unwilling
ness of any Irishman to participate in the
sport of the day, the Clan-na-Gacl held its
annual picnic at Oswald's Grove.
The fire works display at night was gen
eral, the cracker popped, the rocket swept
upward, and the saxon wheel, rosette and
other more costly pieces of pyrotechnical in
genuity made every street brilliant, and tha
small boy as well as his dad felt that it was
good that the Fourth came once a year any
how. The celebration was genoral everywhere,
so the telegraph tells us.

"Fedendism," he said, "has never been erad
icated in this country. The poisonous germs
of distrust of popular government still linger
In the i ifected househol 1 of the Republican
party. The Democratic party although de
feated at tbe last election, looks to the future
with at solute confidence. Its record is un
stained by either tbe theft or the purchase or
the preiidency. It scorns to obtain power
by deceiving and corrupting the people."
A Letter from Cleveland.
Letters of regret wore read from a number
of gentlemeu, among them one from jex
President Cleveland, saying: "Every patri
otic American should rejoice that the cele
bration of the Fourth of July is still engaged
in with zest and enthusiasm, and that laps
of time doe not efface the appreciation of
tbe stiiendous fact which this celebration
commemorates. Beneath every
other sentiment there should exist a deter
minatif n that individual liberty, as claimed
by the fathers of our republic, shall in no
mannet be endangered, and that the will of
the peo lie shall in no manner be betrayed."
Aftei speeches by Governors Biggs and
Wilson and Hon. B. F. Shivcly, of Indiana,

A 3REAT BREWERY IN RUINS.
Tbe 1tl:l Establishment of Falk, Jung
Itnrt-hert, Milwaukee, Destroyed.
Milwaukeb, Wis., July 5. The Falk,
Jung & Borchert Brew ing company plant,
located on South l'ierce street, between
Twenty fourth and Twenty-fifth avenues,
was toti 11 y destroyed by fire yesterday after
noon. Not a building of tbe great plant was
spared. The fire originated in the malt
house ai d sjx-ead with great rapidity, de
stroying the malt house, tbe brew houso, th
offices, the bottling department, and finally
spreadii g to the lieer cellars, which at l p.
m. were still burning.
An Estimate of the l.os.
The tf tnl loss is estimated at from $7i 10,000
to $SK),iKX, and the insurance reaches only
half of this sum. The lieer cellars contained
53,000 1 arrets of the amber fluid, and the
bottling department was stocked with 0,000
barrels more, ready for shipment to the
south. As the brewery is located at the city
limits it was very difficult for the firedepart
ment to do effective work, and two hour
after the fire had started the groat plant was
a mass of ruins. Tbe cause of the fire is un
known, imt it is supposed to have heon over
heating of the malt house.
Pacts About the Plant.
The ci pacity of the brewery was C0,0iKJ
barrels of beer per year, and KI men were
employe I in the establishment The company
was a consolidation of the former, Falk
Brewing company and the Jouns Jt Borchert
Brewing company, which were merged into
one, w ith a capital of (l,000,OiN. Very ex
pensive improveme nts in the shape of addi
tional Machinery to the old Falk Brewing
company bad just be.n completed, amount
ing to f lUO.i 00, and a new refrigerator,
which al ne cost 1 50,000, had just been put
into plate. All of this was destroyed by the
fire. Si cteen large tanks of ammonia used
in conne rlion with the refrigerator exploded
and helpM to spread the fire to the adjoining
building. No one was seriously injured by
the fire. The brewery will be rebuilt im
mediately. Mcfli.s'i Jury men Try Another Case,
Charleston, S. C, July 5. The jury in
the case of John Weir, a factory oerative,
on trial for the murder of William Munzen
maier, Vednesday fulfilled public expecta
tlon by returning a verdict of "not guilty."
It was admitted by all who heard the testi
mony that the state at the best had only
made ou: a case of manslaughter, but as six
of the M :Dow jurymen were on the jury
public at xiety was directed to these men,
who weri now to sit in judgment on a man
who at least had a good plea of self -defenca.
The jurymen were equal to the occasion.

that they might listen to the eloquent ora

was made to settle down to business, but
finally, at the ending of Maginnis' peroration,
the Butte tmn.l of thirty pieces started up on
a lively tune, and the din and uproar

BROKER CARR'S CUSSECNESS.
It Causes a Number of Trusting Souls to
Monrn for Their Lost.
New York, July 5. The offices of Alfred
Carr & Co., bankers and brokers, 36 Pine
street, were in charge Wednesday of a
deputy sheriff. All day long Mr. Carr's
erstwhile customers, wbo are sadly looking
for some 140,000 of vanished cash, passed
frequently in and out. It is tbe old, old
story, in which tbe affable broker, so full ot
good nature and the knowledge of tbe way
prices were going, has departed with the
funds intrusted to his care.
The Customers Saw Him Off.
Carr did not take the midnight train for
Montreal, as many of his predecessors and
prototypes have done. He departed in broad
daylight, and the Cunard line steamship
Etruria carried him off on Saturday, amid
tbe waving of friendly handkerchiefs on tba
dock and jocular good -by s from his custom
ers, whom he had particularly invited to
come down to tbe pier and see him off.
Now They Know Why He Went.
Some how - or other the seed of suspicion
was sown Sunday, and when the customers
got down to the office at 10 o'clock Monday
morning they began to draw checks on their
cash balances. L M. Freese, whom Mr. Carr
bad always referred to as his general man
ager, simply said that he could not honor the
checks because be had no money, and the
confidential clerk and bookkeeper of the con
cern confirmed Mr. Freese's statement.
He Took SMO.OOO with Him.
What the situation is at present it is pretty
difficult to say. There were two or three
dozen regular customers, and they say their
losses range from $500 to $7,000. How much
tbe losses are all told cannot now be est
mated. But tbe amount will not be less than
$40,000. Thirty thousand dollars of this, it
is said, he squandered before bis departure.
The other $10,000 be took away with him.
Carr had smaller customers than those In
New York, and they were located all through
tbe neighboring couutry and invested money
with hitn in response to seductive circulars
which he was iu the habit of mailing twice a
month in very large quantities.
Cheerful Facts from His Bookkeeper.
The book keeper cheeriully explained that
Mr. Carr had simply conducted a bucket
shop business, and that the orders he re
ceived from his customers were never exe
cuted. There was a pretense of executing
them over a telephone in the office connected
with the Consolidated Stock and Petroleum
exchange, but no actual transactions ever
occurred. The man at the other end, tha
bookkeeper averred, was a petroleum ex
change broker named George D. Bancroft,
who received the orders, entered them in bis
book, accepted $1 on every 100 shares, but
never bought or sold anthing.
Went Abroad for His "Health."
Mr. Carr also operated in the market him
self, and as he had been a lear for some
time, and the market has been distinctly
bullish in tone, with prices steadily advanc
ing, as a matter of course he came to grief.
found that bis bank account was running
dangerously low, and came to the conclusion
that tbe only way to get out safely was to
get out quickly, and this it what -he has
done. He told tbe confiding customers wbo
came down to see him off that be was onlv
going over for a little trip on account of his
health, and that he would be back in a
month, but the customers now are of the
opinion that Mr. Carr was not telling the

relieve the sufferings of the victims.
