Thi Rock Island democracy didnt
make quite at clean a sweep at iu Chica
go friend but it was enough of a victory
for genuine rejoicing.
Facktiocslt inclined individuals

paper was elected mayor bf 6,000 plu

phatically declared that he will not seek
the republican nomination for congress.it
might not be impertinent to ask if he is a
candidate for the state senatorship. An
anxious public would like to hear from
the gentleman on the subject.

and tbe democrats were so well satisfied
they placel no one against him. Pears all
should not infer by this, however, that if
he secures tbe republican nomination for
sheriff he will have such an easv time of

interview in a recent issue of the Chicago
InUr-OceaA, containing an endorsement
of the Hon. W. II. Gest, the Davenport
These are Mr. Deere 's views, but from
other sources it is learned thai right in
Rock Island county there is much dis
satisfaction with the man who has been
in Washington two terms, leaving many
things undone that should have been ac
Messrs. C. B. Marshall and Thos.
Karr, of Cordova, will no doubt agree
with Shakspeare. that "good luck lies in
odd numbers." They were candidates on
the democratic ticket for the offices of
town clerk and collector, respectively, at
Taesday's election, and when the vote
was counted it was discovered that their
republican opponents had tied them. In
both instances the vote was 91, and in
drawing lot Messrs. Marshall and Karr
Tom Campbell is pretty cute after a1.).
He saw the handwriticg on the wall and
wouldn't allow himself to be nominated
for supervisor of South Rock Island, thus
jeopsrdizing his chances for tbe republi
can nomination tor county treasurer.
Not so with bis opponents, P. F.Cox and
T. J. Murphy. The former was badly
beaten for assessor of Coe by Frank Gar

While this is not an illustration of the
saying that "fools rush in where angels
fear to tread," it displays considera
ble political sagacity on the part f Bro.
The city elections held throughout Ill
inois and Wisconsin on Tuesday, were
one series of democratic victories. The
cleanest sweep was mule in Chicago,
where the democrats elected a.'l their
candidates in the Souih. North and West
towns. This is especially grat'.fyia
from the fact that the South side has bees
steadfastly republican since its organiza
tion. The democracy of the state was
particularly interested, as the result
would indicate whether the grand victory
of a year ago was a transitory triumph,
or if it was to be repealed at each recur
ing election. The answer to this query is

to Tbe Tribune from Das Moines, la., says:
A conference of an ti-Prohibition Repub
licans was held in this city yetrday, at
which about ICO delegates were present, rep
resenting twenty of the cities of Iowa. The
movement is one started for the purpose of
forcing the Republican party in Iowa to
throw over its prohibition principle. and
return to the advocacy of a lioen, the rea
son being that in many of the cities of the
state the law is so openly violated that tbe
saloons are far worse than under a license

The men gather! here yes tenia v are Re
publicans who have not followed the party
into Prohibition, and who believe that the
party will be wholly defeated unless the law
is repealeii. Some stirring speeches were
made and resolutions adopt d declaring
that the party in Iowa should not endanger
tbe national party by espousing local issues,
and denouncing prohibition.
Some of the Views Expressed.
Ex-Governor Kirk wood was expected to
be present, but illness in his family kept him
at borne. He, however, sent a letter ex
pressing lull sympathy with the object of
convention. "Personallv, the governor
says, I am in favor of local option and high
license, with most stringent regulations.
favor this policy beoauw I believe it will
better promote the public welfare t. an the
present law does.
The reading of this letter was loudly ap
plauded. George E. Bubbell, of Scott
county, formerly a Prohibitionist, presided
over the convention. He said in his speech
that he would still be a Prohibitionist if that
policy ecuki be enforced. fcBut in Scott
county," he said, "the will of the people is
against it. The officials elected are hostile
t it. Grand Juries composed of good men
refuse to indict tbe guilty in the face of the

ClNOTSSAn. April i Quite a sensation
was created in this city yesterday when it

Two weeks ago Halstead left

maxe New York his home and edit the paper
fr.-ica Uere. But there is another side to
ocy. It is asserted that during the last
campaign Haistead made several mistakes
that were costly to the Republican party, and
the stockholders of the paper, at the annual
lection two weeks ago, kicked up a row
over Halstead's management. Tbe result
was the board of directors politely told Mr.
Halstead that if he was anxious to live in
New York he could do so. He went to the
big city, where be now residns. and tbe only
thing heard from him is a column of matter
that appears in the paper every day. The

Rosrwt, April a The C. B. and Q an
nua! report was published yesterday, and in
it Prctadeot Perkins devotes, t wo pages to a
review of tbe rail way airuata as affected by
legislation. He says: "It is more and more
apparent as time goes on t! at until the in

Ropes for Relief from the People.
'flight modifications to the two provi
sions, while preserving all the psople want
namely, just and uniform rates would
enable the roads, with reasonable state taws,
to so regulate themselves as to give a fair
opportunity for profit. This- is becoming so
obvious that your directors hope the public
will no longer refuse to five the relief.
Railroads are fixtures, and c tnnot be taken
away, no matter bow unprofitable they are.
Roads in thj west are owned almost wholly
by persons living in the ea.t, hence public
opinion bas been slow to see ' hat regulations
making road-i unprontabU 'vould either de
prive people of facilities for transportation
or hurt them in any o h?r wiy.
What Existing Conditions Will Io.
"The prosperity of the co umuuitv is so
largely dependent upon thf faciliti-s for
transportation that tbe public will insist
upon having them. We arv forced to the
conclusion that the laws mu-t an 1 will be
aniendel by the good seasa ot the p.vple, so
that roads can be managed i busing un
dertakings ou businss prioc.pies. Present
returns do not encourage the invitra?nt of

Farsiixotox, Mo., April i The women's
crusade, which swept bke a prairie fire in
autumn over the entire western part f Mis
souri a few weeks ago, has broken out ngain
with renewed vigor. Yesterday morning a
determined band of women of all claame of
society started on a liquor -wrecking expjdi
tion with very successful results, The
women had heard that a wagon load of beer
was en route to town and carefully laid
their plans. About 0 o'clock Mrs. W illiams
and Mrs. Foster, two leading matrons, mar
shaled a force of more than two-score de
termined women armed with axes, hatchets
and other weapons suitable for smashing in
heads either of beer barrels or of individ
uals who did not agree with them.
Society Belles In the Ranks.
In the ranks were staid matrons, young
mothers, such well known local society
belles as Juiie Samb-r, Fraukie Slosson and
Edna cUminiers, who willingly followed
their mothers' lead as young crusaders. A
the women tell into line tu-.-ir faces flushed
with indignation, and, unmindful of the as
tonished looks of the male bytaaders,' hose
rental ks were anything but coniplimeutary,
they Marched along four abreast, keeping
step r-ith the precisun of soldiers, and sing
ing temperance bymns.
Thomson Came Doss
Turning down the road to IVlassus they
waylaid a wagonload of beer about a half a
mile from this place. August Thomson, the
driver of the wagon, was told to dismount.
He hesitated, and attempted to whip up his
horses, but the women were too quick for
him, and a dozen held his horses' beads and
pulled back on the wagon wheels while Mrs,
Foster a-ked him if he would come down
peacefully or if they should come up after
him. He came down.
The Tanglefoot Spilled.
Then at the request of Julie Sander the
terror -.t icken driver assisted in unloading
six barrels, fourteen half terreU, and six
teen eighth barrels of rich export beer,
w hich was originally intended for the palates
of the male citizens of Farmington. Then
the axes and hatchets began to play on the
heads of the beer barrels. The women
pouuded the buns out of all tbe casks and
let the beer run by the wayside. It was a
warm morning, and as the bungs were
driven in the ter tpurted out of the barrels

aroused women, tut not dampening their

The reformers then loaded themselves back
in the beer wagon and started for their
homes, singing temperance songs and de

gry husbands and fathers waited for them,
and some men were so ungenerous as to kick
about a delayed supper, and wth their

men are highly excited and threaten to pros

with ample means of defense, ami threatens
to take the law into his own Lands if the
women attempt to carry out their threat to
destroy all the beer iu Farmington. He
keeps a large tank full of hot water, and
says that upon the first attack be will scald
the assailants. The crusade is condemned
by conservative citixens, who fear that the
demonstrations of the women will precipi
