THE HOCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1889.
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN V. POTTER.
M OH DAT. Bkftkmdkk 3 1889.
Corporal Tanker got bit little en
dorscront through tbe Milwaukee en
campmsnt All right, but that doesn't re
move the unbiased impression that tbe
corporal it squandering tbe people's
money la a rrckless manner.
It ii certainly unfortunate for Presi
dont llarrlaoo, says tbe Philadelphia
Tiimt, that his accepted attitude toward
the workingtnen is such that tbe labor
organizations of Indianapolis refused tbe
Invitation to turn out and welcome him to
his old home. With the milla and facto
riea of highly protected products failing
In unusual numbers; with tbe wagea of
labor reduced in nearly all protected in
dustrles, and with monopoly combines
rapidly multiplying to Increase tbe coat of
tbe nweMnriP of life, it ia not surprising
that worklntrmen are unwilling to entbuae
over the frnita of Ibo administration
that waa to be tbe harbinger of Increased
wanes and enlarged industrial prosperity.
There is much food for presidential re
flection, while receiving the natural bom
age of old friendships in Indianapolis, in
tbe tact that the workingmcn arc conspic
uous by their absence in the welcome.
Tbe workingmcn are, the supreme power
of tbe republic, and when tbey feel tbe
effect of grinding taxes and reduced wages
there is revolution in the ai It is jn tbe
power of President Harrison to remedy
this unpromising condition by demand
ing Just tax laws and the overthrow of
monopoly. Will he do it?
Loko Jones was a powerful factor in
republican politics in Illinois when John
A. Logan, whose henchman he was, was
alive. The Springfield Iittitter says be
has a good deal of force of character, an
unlimited amount of "gall." is something
of a strategist, and ia thoroughly posted.
He waa for years chairman of the repub
lican stale central committee, hut after
Logan's drath be was mustered out, and
baa not ainre been recognized as an under
boss even. The elongated gentleman has
ever since been chafing under tbe humil
iation, and seems disposed now to assert
himself again. He was at Milwaukee
during the Grand Army encampment, and
bis free talk indicated this. He waa em
phatic and outspoken in his denunciation
of Cullom and Fifi r, and of Foraker in
Ohio. lie spoke of these men as political
hoasea who made the. beat interests of tbe
g. o. p. subordinate to their own ambi
tion, and declared that both Illinois and
Ohio were in danger of falling into the
handa of the Phillistines i. e.,thede
mocracy. Never, perhaps, in tbe history
of Illinois republicanism was that cor
rupt old party in greater danger than it
is today. It is torn by factional feuds;
statesmen of the Dan Hogan and John
R. Tanner stripe are advanced to posi
tions of honor and trust, while better
men are kept to the rear; there is a
wide spreading feeling of diaaatisfaction
with tbe Fifer administration, and every
thing seems to point to the speedy de
liverance of tbe state from the hands of
tbe spoilsmen who have been so long in

The barrel bad bard'y been scratched, and
the party were so pleased that thun and
there a solemn vow was made to use it to go
over tbe falls in at the earliest possible dite.
Blending on the bead of the submerged bar

water, Graham lifted a class of liquor to his
lips, and said? "1 drink to the health of a
greater venture than this, which, God help

Tba police officials on both sides of tbe falls

There tbe manhole was opened and Graham
entered the barrel. He was dressed in the
tights in which all of bis famous feats have
been performed, in addition to which he
wore a heavy outer shirt. He nrst placed a

STATEMENT OF MR. 0. E. BOLLES.
All Intention of Discourtesy to the Old
Soldier Itisrlalmed and the Chaise Re-
fpndialad MaJ. Sherman Repeats His
Charice Geu. Sherman's View of It He
Thinks There Was Too Uttte Politeness
in the Way He Was "Fired."
Chicago, Sept 2 C E. Bolles, of Phil
Sheridan post, makes tbe following state
ment iu regard to the alleged rudeneas of
members of Phil Sheridau post to Gen. Shan
man on tlie cars between Mdwaukee and
Chicago. "An employe of the company took
me to the car and informed the porter that
I bad tickets for twenty seaU iu the body of
the car. I found the car two-
thirds full, and amoug others Gen.
Hheruian and brother. How many more be
longed to his tarty 1 did not know. I had
tickets for ail tbe chairs. Gan. Sherman in
formed me that a car was reserved for him.
and that he had been brought to tbU one. I
informed him. and also Maj. SHermnn that
as tbe party I hired the car from brought me
to this car llu;, e was a mistake somewhere,
and lor them to keep tUaj- seats untd it was
'While talcing with tie general and the
major tbe porter came iu and told him that
teais were reserved in the next car for him.
Tbe geueral told the mayor to go and serf,
which he did, and returned and went into
the other car with the general. Shortly af
terward tbe major came into our car. I
went to him aud said: 'Major, I regret that
the mistake occurred and hope you found
your car without any trouble.'
Tbe major replied 'Sir, 1 will not talk
about tbU matter, 1 will not say a word,'
and turned and left the car. I did not think
any member of Phil Sheridan post except
myself spoke to Gen. Sherman."
Maj. Sherman insists that the manner in
which his brother was notified that he was in
the wrontr car was very offensive and en
tirely unwarranted, and bo the matter rests
GEN. SHERMAN'S ACCOUNT.
He Doesn't Srcn to Feel Very Badly About
New York, Sept 2. Gen. W. T. Sher
man, who has arrived from the west, told
yesterday of bis experience in Milwaukee
with members of Phil Sheridnn prt, G. A.
R, of Chicago. He said that he and his
brother, Maj. Hoyt Sherman, being bound
from Milwaukee to Chicago, were shown to
a certain car by one of the railway men, and
they not only took poss ssion of the two
seats which they supiosed they bad engaged,
but the general, seeing several adjacent seats
vacant, hospitably invited Senator Mamler
snn and Gen. lilcArlhur, who had joined
them, to occupy two of them.
Notified ol a Mistake.
He had scarcely done this w hen the color
ed porter rauie to hiui and said: "Geueral
Sherman, your seats are ill the car ahead."
He anil his brother accordingly went to the
next car and occupied the two seats which
they bdd engaged and paid for. G.-ncrai
Slier man did not know the Grand Army
men w ho caused huu and his brother to Ua
ousted from the seats they h.id taken at
first, but be says they knew bim, and ha 1
bim ousted with their open eyes.
t'omvlalns of Discourtesy. 433
He thinks they had a perfect right to oust
him, but he thinks they might bave been
more polite in doing it He said nothing to
them, however, but bis brother gave a piece
of his mind to the initiator of th" movement.
Although lie was very tired, having spent
the greater piirt of the previous day in shak
ing hand with the Grand Army comrades,
tlie move to the other car did not inconveui
euce Liiu, and he and his brother were quite
as comfortably off as tbey would have been
in the seats they had tirst taken.
Slanderaon aud. StcArtknr.
Senator Mauderson and Geu. McArthur,
however, were not so fv.rtuuule. They were
bounced from Phil Sheridan Post's car with
the Hbermau-, aud, as they bad no seats,
they bad to stand or sit ou extemporise
chairs for a long tiuia Geu. Shermau s ke
of the affair good-temperedly throughout

one dreaded disease that science has
been able cure in all its stages, and that
is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the

of the disease, and giving the patient
strength, by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work.
