The fires of democratic enthusiasm
orer tbe triumph of Hon. Horace Boies
for gorernor, which are burning all orer
Iowa, were kindled at Davenport Satur
day night and tbe Democrat- Ocueits of
yesterday morning paints itself in patri
otic hues in celebration of the glorious
victory. A number of representative
democrats on this side of the river were
present. Tbe Democrat-Oatette says:
Tbe people of Davenport have ratified
and rejoiced many times, out never be
fore waa the natural impulse to give
thanks for a blessing so widespread as it
bas been since the dispatches brought the
news of tbe election of Horace Botes on
the 5th of November. It waa more than
a party triumph. It inrolres vastly more
than temporary success. It means a
radical change in tbe legislation of the
atale; a removal of burdens; a reyival of
moral and material prosperity. Tbe
irreaistible impulse was not born to die in
a day. Tbe more fully tbe victory is
realized in all its bearings tbe greater be
came tbe desire to give tbanka.
In answer to tbis spontaneous feeling
tbe people met last evening at tbe Turner
Grand opera bouse. Tbe great auditor
ium of Chicago with its seating capacity
of 10X00, would have been better
adapted for tbe occasion, but the
more tbsn two thousand persons gath
ered represented more than ten timea
many who could not got in
and therefore celebrated in tb3 streets
and in otber places. An hour before the
assemblage waa called to order tbe heav
ens were illuminated by fireworks dis
charged from tbe roof of the building.
Tbe windows were brightened by thous
ands of candle Barnes. It waa a brilliant
scene and waa witnessed by great crowds.
There would have been miles of blazing
torches had tbe streets not been impass
able almost from days of rain.
Yi ubin tbe opera house it was human
ity packed. A few flies decorated tbe
walls and festoons of tri colored bunt
ing ran around the front of tbe gallery.
Tbe front rows of tbe gallery were filled
by ladies. All in all it waa a picture of
eager eyes and expectant faces.
At exactly 8 o clock, the gentlemen
who were to take seats on the stage,
walked to their places, and as tbe fa
miliar faces appeared there was cheer
after cheer. As Hon. John C. Bills
made bis appearance, one of the old
ti mo democrats said: "There is tbe man
who oueht to be tbe next senator of tbe
United States from Iowa."
Speeches were then made by F. L.
Dodge, Mr. Bills, Mayor Claussen, L. M.
Fisber, Gustave Donald, Judge Nath
French, Hon. Walter I. Hayes, Hon. J.
W. Stewsrt, C. A. Ficke and H. C. Ful

grand torchlight parade in Davenport.

Tbe side taken by Messrs. Aster &
Jahns is that when the time came for the
old firm to disband, tbey were anxious to

financial interest in the firm than he, and
