and thanking the board of educat on for
providing so admirably for the glowing

of teachers tor every step to the Joor of '
the High school itself. It is hand tome in
appearance, convenient in arrangement,
and baa all the requirements of comfort
"I speak for my neighbors as well as
myself when I say we are pleated with

children, whose advancement it life is
more to us than our personal a ms and

our sincere thanks to the board of educa

schools of Hock Island and re ider tbe
path of learning less thorny to the young
and tender feet."
PltEMDEXT THOMAS' REPLY.
President T. II. Thomas, of t le Board
of Education, responded as follows:
Ladies and Gentlemen: On behalf
of the Board of Education, I l id you a
bearty welcome to tbe opening of our
new school building. I desire to thank
the people of this immediate vi inity for
tbe One flag the? bave kindlv donated
this scbool. It seeini to me the moot ap
propriate gift that coald have possibly
been given one that will help engraft
in tbe minds of tbe children educated
here love of country, its flag and its in
stitutions, among which one of tbe moat
mportant is our public school svstem.
The presentation of this flag gives the
board more pleasure than any .bing elae
could have done, because we tx lieve it to
be an indica'.iou of your approval f and
aatisfaction with tbe building. Tbe board
re proud of it. We believe it to be one
f the beat school building in the slate
for tbe amount of mwneT cxpenJed, con
taining, aa it does, every modern im
provement. Another very a lpropriate
hing you did was the select on of Mr.
R imeis to make the presentat od. No
person baa done as much as lie toward
securing you this school buildiig. Some
members would bsve preferrec waiting a
year or two before erecting it, having
expended f 30.000 for a high (.cbool two
years ago, but when by his till rts the old
house was shown to be un
safe, tbey were unanimous in or
dering its erection. I belitve in good
schools and good buildings. I. helps any
city that bas them. The first inquiry of
man of a family before he locates in a
place is "what kind of schools bave you?"
A persoj'a first impression of a city is
formed from tbe character of .tscburchea
and acboola. Allow me again to thank
you for your attendance and attention.
I shall conclude by giving yt u a general
idea of tbe condition of our pi b!ic schools
compared with July, 1987. For several
years previous to that date tbe tax levy
bad been from $23,000 to f 23.000: the
expense of teachers and i an 1 tors being
about that amount. At this time thev
are nearly 130,000 We were in debt
about $13.0(10. We bave linoe made
three tax leviea in 1887 and 1SSS. $35.
0(H) each, and in 1888 $40.00 ). We now
owe $43,500 In 6 per cent londs, have
built two fine school buildin n and fitted
them up at a cost of $4 7.000: ao al
though onr lax levy for tha past three
years is larger our next atoual report
will shew a decrease of our indebtedness
of $17,000 and two fine moiern scbool
bouses built in accord with tba wanta of
tbe times and worth all tbey cost. Tbe
total coat of this building, not including
furniture, is about 16.0U0.
In conclusion President Thomas re
quested that Mr. Reimera now present
to tbe principal
of the buildicg. Miss McDonald, and he
did ao In tbe following language:
"Miss AIcuosaLD: In 3ehalf of my
neighbors and myself, I tender to you, as
principal of this scbool, th.s banner of
our country to float from ita flig-staff on
every day that tbe aun shines, we ask
you to think of 'all that this flag sym-
Doiizes to you ana to impi rt your own
love and veneration for it to those who in
time will be guardians of Its destiny.
There is nothing in all this world like
bAVing a flag and keeping t in view. It
reprisenla moral principle, high purpose,
and fidelity in all the relations of life.
Tbe one wbo keeps his eye on tbe flag
aloft will not stoop or falter. Take,
therefore, this banner and as you teach
tbe prescribed branches of education to
tbe children tn your care, impart to them
also a thorough knowledge of their coun
try and its institutions and teach them
that tbe stars and stripes are tbe outward
and visible manifeaiatic n of freedom.

Mias McDonald expressed tbe thanks
of the school to Mr. I timers, and bis
neighbors for the beautiful banner, and
In behalf of tbe leacben of the school
presented him with m basket of flowers as
a token of appreciation f his thoughtful
kindneas and good will, not only on this
happy occasion, but a. remembrance
and recognition of bis services aj presi
dent of the board In tbe past.
A resolution expresdve of the thanks
of tbe community to tbe architect and
builders was offered by Mr. 8. W. Mc
Muter, and passed unanimously.
AX OLD TIKI PCPTL.
Mr. Oliver Olson wai then Introduced
as one ot the pupils of iie former tchoel
when it was a two rooti building, and he
made a very pleasant address, stating
that be was one of tha pupil of the old
Fourth ward scbool thirty years ago. Tbe
little two-room bouse was plenty large
enough In those days; it is by thinking of
tbe difference in numbers attending as
well as by tbe accommodations provided,
that we realize the grewth In population
that baa taken place. He well remem
bered bis first impressions, and paid a
glowing tribute to the kindness and con
aiderationa of Mias Peaae, bis first teach
er, whose memory will ever live in the
hearts of those who were under her care
and to Mias PLoebe Con ant, now Mrs.
J. M. Beardaley, whose sweetness and
amiability made the children almost
adore her. Kindness, be assur
ed the teachers, never fails of its
effect upon tbe scholars, and is
also remembered in all tbe after days.
He also spoke of the advantages of re
ceiving a schooling under the American
system aa inculcating the ideas of msking
real American citizens than which a
greater honor doea not exist.
"Tbe "Star Spangled Banner was ren
dered by tbe children in unison and in
response to an enthusiastic expression of
approval on tbe part ot those present
"Atnerica"waa sung. The flag, wbicb is
sixteen feet long with forty-two stars and
bears in gold letters "No. 6," had in tbe
meantime been pulled up and was floating
gracefully from the flags taf as tbe chil
dren left tbe building and they saluted
it with a hearty cheer that demonstrated
the possession of that most cherished of
all instincts patriotism.

Tbe facts of the case, as brufly as they

A. Herbert, H. Wright and T. Clinton,

tbe number was telling a story. Follow

the boys, and upon reaching a certain
corner the boys stopped and by this time
they were all laughing heartily at the
Tbe women passed them and one of
tbem turning sharply remarked.
'You are snickering at tbe wrong
parties and if you don't stop I will come
back and slap you," this latter threat
being particularly addressed to Clinton.

to go on about ber business, that he and
bis companions avert) not laughing at

The Ditpatch of last evening details the

in last evening's Argus, as follows:
Train Ne. IS, due here at 7:85, left
Rock Island on time (7:10) and had pro
ceeded as far as Sixth street, Moline, all

street, the engine, it is supposed, broke
the rail. Tbe combination smoking and

passenger car passed over the break in
safety. Tbe rail was spread, however,
by the forward car, and tbe rear truck
of the last coach ran off the track. After

trucks to tbe coach, broke and tbe

Mr. Uregory Brown is the champion
corn grower in these parts. His rows

eleven bushels to the row, which at least.
will make 110 bushels to the acre. There

which bas been pastured quite a number
of years. Tbe land was subsoiled and
tbe corn was planted in drills, one erain
in a place six or seven inches apart.
The bulk of the poverty among work
ing men and their families in England is
attributable to misappropriated earnings,
and not to free trade. Tbe republican
press of this country is a chronic liar on
this subject. If the poverty in England
is traceable to free trade, may we infer
then that tbe poverty and destitution that
exists in France, Germany and tbe United
States is due to protection?

It is said vice-President Morton feels
very indignant at tbe L:quor Dealers' asso
ciation of Terre Haute, Ind.. for taking
tbe liberty to elect blm an honorary mem
tier. "Birds or a leather will flock to
gether." A correspondent from Washington
ssys, "Mr. Morton bimseir ssjs be hss
rented all tbe rooms in tbe "Sborebam
for an aggregate rental of $40,000 a year.
while the help alone, without counting
fuel, light or any other subject of ex
pense, will cost $3,000 a mortn or $88.-
000 a year." Therefore the bar buffet
instead of being an incidental feature of
tbe Shorehain, will be tbe main branch of
tbe establishment out of wbicb the main
profits must come.
At this writing I bave before me a
diagram of tbe Sborebam "Cafe." which
shows both a bar and a buffet, fourteen
tables, a cashier, cigars, three doors which
are entrances from H street, upon two of
theae are printed tbe word "cafe." Vice
President Morton draws $8,000 salary
from tbe government of this country and
yet be may have as good right to run a

that tbe Lord bas been very good to Rock

mayor and other officials. Is it not bor
dering upon blasphemy to claim that the
Lord ia author of the bad aa well aa the
good? But then that Is only on a par
with Harrison claiming that "the Lord
elected him. If that is republican blas

adoption of a resolution or passage of a
law, that it waa a formal declaration that
the mover waa in favor of the project,

has been more than once a subject
of comment It waa particularly no

meeting, when he moved to adopt tbe or
