Tbe theatre contained all who could be
comfortably sealed and many besides.
The most of the city churches dispensed
with their evening services and pastor and
people joined in the exercises. On the
stage were President Wra. Jacssoo and
other members of the Rock Island branch
of the society, Mayor McConochie, Pres.

tbe inspiration at facing such an audience
attending a meeting in tbe interests of
humanity, human sympathy and bumnn

to commence at the foundation and buil 1
up, strengthening and bracing tbe struc
ture as it advances. This is the object of
the Humane society; it imposes an ob
ligation to be kind to every living crea

kindness has special reference to tie
prevention of cruelty to animals; yet ti e
society did not believe in resorting to
law if its pu puses could be accomplished
otherwise, such as by teaching and im

FATHER THOMAS MACEtN
was then introduced, and be began by
saying that tbe gospel just preached by
Mr. Jackson might have been preached
by St. Paul, or tbe pope in Rove,
and it finds a responsive echo in the
hearts of all who believe in the suppres
sion of cruelty. Differ at we may as to
forma of worship, we do not differ one
iota in tbe doctrine of humanity. .This
thing of cruelty toward the aoi
mals Ood bad created Is wrong, and the
practice of encouraging dog fights and
bull fights is barbarous and has an evil ten
dency with all and should be put down by
public opinion as well as by the law. Then
Father Mackin recalled the scene t of
bloodshed and barbarity in the Colisei m in
tbe days when Rome was in the zeni h of
its power and glory, when tbe populace
turned out to satisfy their morbid appe
tites and rejoice in human and at imal
butcheries, wnen to witness a contest to
the death between gladiators or bet ween

Mayor Wm. McConochie was then in
troduced by President Jackson, and
spoke as follows:
Mr Chairman, Ladies and Gentle
men: I fully appreciate tbe courtesies
extended, but I will not flatter myself
with tbe idea that this audience cme to
bear anttbmg I mieht asv. I wi'l not
detain you when there are so many able
and pleasing speakers present who can
and will address you. but 1 will lake this
opportunity of expressing my sympathy
in behalf of a noble canse, and say that
' your efforts should be encouraged and
i Misuined by all well-minded people.
Your aims, aa I understand them, are to
ameliorate the condition, not only of the
weak and unfortunate of tbe human fam
ily, but also extending support and pro
tection to those members of tbe brute
creation ao closely allied to mankind, and
especially those noble and faithful ani
mals whose destinies have been linked
with tbe human race through all tbeir
trials and tribulations since tbe founda
tion of the world, who have always
proved themselves faithful and kind, and
instances can be cited where thev have
shown a love and devotion to their mas
ters that is beyond human comprehen
sion. Their services are indist enable.
While men may buy and own them by
tbe laws ordained from on high, it is the
duty of every christian land to enact
such laws and to strictly enforce them to
protect all domestic aoimais from the
brutality of tbeir ijhuman masters. I
do not know whether the aims and scope
of this organization is broad and wide
enougn to enfold under its protecting
wings that unfortunate class members

aud of people of whom he would ever
cherish the fondest remembrances. His
only regret was that be was not still one
of them in citizenship. He desired to
present the greetings of Rock Island's
sister city, and the wish tbat they might
have Ood speed in their ereat work.
When consolidation takes place he hoped
the people of Rock Island would go up
and show the people of that part of town
how to bold a humane society meeting.
He commended heartily tbe work of tbe
humane society, and believed that the
teachings of mercy showed with the
children. He referred to Father Mack-
in's illustration of the growth of the race
from the first power of tbe brute force to
the control of the brute, until tbe intellect
ual force held sway. We are now enter
ing upon an age when the teacher of
mercy and love is but echoing the first
teachings and lessons of tbe child of

develope these tender influences of kind

peculiar age aa be would appear, as only
the surface appears, but it should not be

MR. FRANE NADLER
Mr. Nadler commenced bis remarks by
reading a portion of scripture from the
22 J chapter of Numbers, relative to
Baalam's ass, and this was cited by Mr.
Nadler as the only recorded instance
where the ass had got tbe best of an ar
gument with man. He desired to speak
on the subject of tbe Humane society
from the standpoint of a business man.
The society ought to exist because of tbe
value ot the dumb animal to trade and
commerce If for nothing eUe. Viewing
it in tbe interests of humanity this was
the first time in tbe century tbat tbe
sympathetic response had come to tbe cry
of the dumb brute. Mr. Nadler was glad
to commend the society as having within
its province too, a purpose to provide
better facilitiea for the transportation of
cattle and also in tbe appliances for tbe
slaughter of cattle, tbe prevention of cats
tie being overheated before slaughter and
further in Insuring pure milk. In thia
respect the movement touched more
points than most people were aware of.
Thus it was that from a sanitary point of
view, as well as humane, the influence
for good waa great and far reaching, as
putting 4 check on injudicious food as
well aa promoting the cause of humanity.
The speaker in conclusion touched upon
the check-rein and the slaughter of the
innocent birds aa matters coming within
the scope of the society'! good work.

waa introduced, and commended heartily
the work of the society as having its
foundation with the utterance of the
Saviour when he said, ''Blessed are
tbe Merciful . " He spoke of the society's
elevating influences as promoting tender'
ness of feeling. It was a work which
was started in Egypt several years ago,
and spread into Europe and Africa. He
wanted to see the society take the beasts
of burden away from their masters, the
children away from their parents, and
tbe wives away from their husbands
when they abused them. He hoped that
the mayor would turn tbe whole police
force loose on the city in enforcing the
law with regard to the work of humanity.

and the killing of the songsters of nature.
REV. D. F. CARNAfJAN,
representing the American Educatiotal
Aid society, was called upon and spoke
briefly, on tbe close alliance between tbe
organization he represented and tbe one
f humane endeavor, nia object waa to
find homes for homeless, helpless chil
dren, to take them out of the ways of
cruelty and unkindness and to put them
where they would properly be brought
op aod cared for.
Mr. Jackson announced the regret of
Rev, H . C Leland, pastor of the First
Baptist church and bia congregation, at
not being able, because of a previous ar
rangement, to join in the ceremonies;
and a qusrttt, composed of Messrs. Col
lins, Robinson, Nolteker and Stafford,
aang, "Nearer My God to Tbee."
REV. o E PLATT
was presented and made a short address.
One of the brightest things of tbe Anglo-
Saxon race was that it was an intellec
tual race, and when you apply to intellect
you get a ready response. This was
fhown in tbe growth of this society. He
alluded to the fact that ladies often,
thoughtlessly perhaps, were guilty of
cruelty such as the declarations of this
organization prohibit, in the way of driv
ing too highly checked horses, etc. This
should be stopped, ne furthermore fav.
ored the enforcement of tbe law in all
cases of cruelty to animals and the apply
ing of the most extreme penalties in all
cases of violation.
With more singing by tbe choir and

that he spoke on in Moline the night be

speaker held that there was a systematic
and well organized and determined effort
