THE HOCK ISLAND AKGUS. MONDAY, MAY 5. 1890.
THE DAILY AKGUSI
JOHN W- POTTER.
Monday, Mat 5. 1890.
Tom A. Marshall,, of the Keithsburg
Gun club, won the Inter-States medal at
the shouting tournament, at Kirk wood,
last week, over sportsmen from Gales
burg. Burlington aad nearly all the larger
towns in this part of the country. Mar
shall is a crack shot and can bold his own
with any of 'em. Keithburg AWm.
Mr. Marshall is the democratic member
of the legislature from the Twenty fourth
district, which accounts for his clear eye
and steady nerve.
Colonel Clabksoh's speech at Pitta
bnrg, observes the New York Star, shows
a correct appreciation of the current of
American political thought, coupled with
a singular misapprehension of the causes
of it. He admits the superior progress of
democratic newspaper and periodical lit
erature, in which the republicans used to
lead, and deplores the fact that "in later
days the democrats have been beating us
at our own game."
In 1375 Samuel J. Tildcn made similar
observations, but of reversed application,
n Miog the necessity for greater activity
in democratic publications. lie then set
lo motion the remarkable political propa
ganda through the press that helped his
election to the presidency in 1875; Since
that time the democracy has steadily
gained in the contest of intelligence, the
conditions of which were, as Mr. Clark
son justly says, properly appreciated by
Col. Brice in opening the intellectual and
educational campaign of 1838.
Thus far the remarks of the late assist
ant postmaster general are sound and
fair. Where he is lacking in his failure
to appreciate the fact that it is because
riht and reason are with the democracy
that the press is becoming democratic.
The popular science and intelligence
have revolted against the practices of de
generate republicanism, and republican
journals have lacked public support.
Democratic gains have been largely from
long established publications whicn have
become disgusted with floater fund meth
ods on account of the pressure of general
sentiment as mucb as from their own
change of conviction. A party that has
not the right side of the argument cannot
long control the press of an intelligent
and patriotic people.
For an object lesson in the causes of
the revulsion of the intelligence, virtue
and patriotism of the land against the re
publicanism he defends, Colonel Clarksnn
has no need to look beyond those who
surrounded him at the Pittsburg banquet
or to Q iay and Reed.

LOXDOX, May 5. Yesterday should be
come a memorable ona in the history of
demonstrations on the part of the laboring
classes of England for it was never equaled
since the days of monster outpourings of
the people which characterized the reform
movement of 1867. The most moderate es
timate of the number of people taking
part in the Hyde Park meeting is 500,000,of
which 200,000 came in the processions and
800,000 gathered at will. This is a very
conservative calculation, however, and
some observers, accustomed to gauge
large crowds, do not hesitate to assert that
fully 1,000,000 people participated in the
Composition of the Tarade.
There were 150 bands of music in the
processions. The affair was a three-headed
one, the largest number of men being un
der the leadership of the Trades council h
distinctively non-Socialistic body. A some
what less numerous contingent acknowl
edged the leadership of the Central com
mittee, which leans strongly toward Social
ism, while a third and relatively small
division was under the control of the out
and out Socialistic organization known a
the Socialistic Democratic Federation. All
possibility of strife and friction among the
various bodies had been avoided by careful
previous arrangements, and foronce people
of all shades of opinion on the labor ques
tion joined in a common movement.
RaKtfed, but Good Humored.
The TrHdes Council procession was badly
led, and for the most part was hardly bet
ter than a straggling mob of iil-condi
tioned, dirty and ragged men, whose ap
pearance made it plain that they repre
sented the unemployed rather than the
working men. These forlorn hosts made
no attempt to keep step, even when they
were within hearing of music. They
moved along pell-mell, but despite their
miserable uppearunce they manifested
great good nature, and indulged in much
horse play and rude joking among them
selves. T heir gorgeous banners were in
odd contrast with the evident poverty of
Seme at Hyde Phi k.
ltie central committees procession
moved in much the best form, and was
made up of a more well-to-do set of work
men. When all the marchers had reached
the park the scene was an imposing one.
The plainness of garb characterizing the
assemblage as a whole was largely off
set oy rue gay banners and by t lie surpris
ing prevalence of jiersonal decoration in
the sham- of bright ribbons, rosettes, etc.,
some lieing the badgesof the unions, others
impromptu emtadlishments. The scene
resembled a huge fair, the crowd outside
of the dense central portion lieing dis
persed in smaller groups, each made
up of the auditors of some orator
of more moderate fame than that
of the leaders who addressed the main
crowd from the central platforms. The
park, three quarters of a mile long by half
a mile wild, was crammed with a solid
mass of jieople, while all the streets and
ways leading to the park were more or less
A Uenuneiatinn of France.
The White Chapel distict seemed to
have disgorged a considerable fraction of
its unhappy denizens to swell the throng.
The crowd ebbed and flowed, and instead
of one meeting there was, properly speak
Ing, a continuous succession of audiences.
The inarching, or coming and going, con
tinued from 2 o'clock until after nightfall,
The best speakers were those furnished by
the Central committee.including the more
noted of the moderate Socialistic leaders.
La Fargue, a Frenchman, was one of the
few speakers who indulged in violent lan
guage. He declared that France was ruled
by a syndicate of sweaters and swindlers,
who should lie swept away.
No Police Interference.
Groups of marchers continued to arrive
long after darkness had put an end to the
speaking. The day waa an orderly one,
despite the thronged condition of the
Btreets. The police did not interfere in any
way with the processions or meetings, ex
cept to put a veto upon an attempt to lead
an elephant through the streets as part of
the turn-out. The only arrests were those
of thieves, who were out in great force,
their prey being naturally the spectators
on the sidewalks, rather than the hnmble
marchers in the streets. Altogether the
demonstration was a creditable one to the
great eight-hour movement.
RESTS WITH THE STRIKERS.
The Arbitration Committee In the Chicago
Carpenters' Strike A preen.
Ciikaoo, May 5 When the striking
carpenters meet this afternoon it is pro
bable that they will be called ujkiii to rut ify
a decision reached by Judges Driggs, Tuley
and McConnell and agreed to by their owu
committee and the commit tee; from the
new Bosses' association. It is understood
that the agreement provides that the men
shall report for work on Tuesday or
Wednesday morning; that they will work
eight hours a day; will refuse to work for
the old master carpenters unless the latter
sign the agreement and become members
of the new Bosses' association.
The Wage. Question to Walt.
i-inauy, mat mey win leave tue ques
tion of wages in abeyance until the iudi
cial umpires get ready to determine it. It
seems that the arbitrating committees
could not agree on wages. The original
demand of the union was for 40 cents an
hour. The bosses offered 30 cents. The men
"shaved" their demand to 35 cents, and the
bosses offered 82X cents. Neither side
would unbend on Saturday, but it Is like
ly that the umpires will settle the point
satisfactorily. The whole mutter is now
practically in the hands of the strikers,and
whatever they choose to do this afternoon
will be final.
Iron Moldera and Wood Carver.
The iron molders held a brief but inter
esting meeting in Zepf's West Lake street
ball yesterday. The principal subject dis
cussed was the strike of the men in the big
malleable shops on the black road. Their
action in demanding an increase of 10 per
cent, in wages, a ten-hour day, and SO per
cent, increase for overtime was indorsed.
The wood carvers and turners held a
meeting yesterday afternoon, and deter
mined by a unanimous vote to demand the
eight-hour day for every member of the
craft, as well as a guarantee of minimum
wages equivalent to 25 cents an hour.
Trouble for tha Packing; Houses.
A mass-meeting of union and non-union
coopers employed at the stock yards was
held yesterday afternoon. Several vigor-
ousspeeches in favor of going out aud stay
ing until their dematul for an eight-hour
clay was complied with were made and en
thusiastically applauded. It is altogether
likely that every cooper employed in the
packing houses will go out on a strike.
Planing Mills and Elsewhere.
It is believed that all the planing mill
owners will grant the demunds of their
men for an eight-hour day and resume
operations. The painters' union is reor
ganizing. The uuion was disorganized at
the strike two years ago, but the men only
work eight hours. Their grievance is now
that their wages vary from 25 to 35 cents
and they want some changes in the scale.
AH the workmen in the employ of the
gas trust have demanded eight hours,
which the trust haa flatly refused to grant.

St. Pacl, May 5. The windstorm of
Saturday culminated in a heavy snowfall
yesterday, which was general all over the
stare and over Dakota. It was a very wet
snow, melting almost as rapidly as it fell,
and in case a frost ia averted will be of
inestimable value to the crops Reports to
the state statistician show that in all of
the western and southern portions of Min
nesota, and in the central and eastern part
of South Dakota, the snow changed to
warm rain and fell most where the moist
tire was most needed for the crops. In the

At Buffalo.Minn., the greatest snowstorm
ever seen in central Minnesota iu May is

yesterday morning aud continued all day.
There was a heavy fall, but it melted

RECORDS ON THE DIAMOND.
Keview of the Bane Ball Situation Soorea
Saturday and Sunday.
T Chicago, May 5. The base ball war goes
gaily on, and if dollars and cents are what
the experts are after the Brotherhood has
undoubtedly the best of it, as the attend
ance at their games daily averages nearly
twice as great as that at the league games.
It is stated that the Pittsburg League club
has met the cut in prices in that city to 25
cents mode by the Brotherhood. In regard
to skill in playing the two rivals average
about even, according to tables printed
during last week. It is a question, how
ever, whether the averages would have
been so nearly alike had the League been
playing against Brotherhood clubs, which
would lie a truer test of their relative skill.
The two competing aggregations have not
yet tested their respective popularity in
this city, the heavy rain of Saturday pre
venting en uer from playing the first games
in which they were both to have played
here Oh the same afternoon.

WaSHIXGTOS City, May 5. That death
loves a shining mark has probably never
in the history of this city been more fre
quently demonstrated than within the
past few months. First the dread mes
senger summoned Kelly of Pensylvania,
then Randall, and Saturday the city was
startled by the news that Beck of Kentucky
had been suddenly stricken as he stepped
across the railway station here on his ar
rival from New York, where he had gone
Friday. Although his death was not un
expected by those who knew him well, the
manner of his taking off was so sudden as
to greatly shock all in the wide circle of
The Fatal Summons.
Accompanied by hisdaughter, Mrs. (Jood
loe, wife of Maj. Goodloe, of the United
States marine corps, he iot off the train
with the rest of the passeugers, and walked
with his daughter the entire length of the
platform and through the gate leading to
the station proper. He seemed to walk
with an effort aud to breathe with lubor,
but these symptoms were the the usual ac
companiments of exertion with him for
some months past. After passing into the
station the senator and his daughter
stopped, and were joined by his private
secretary, who had brought a carriage to
take them home. A few words were ex
changed with regard to the care of bag
gage, when the senator suddenly turned
pale, and with the remark I feel dizzy,"
fell in.o the arms ot his companions. They
could not supjiort his weight, and he
dropped to the Moor, where he died before
the physicians who were promptly sum
moned could get to his side. The illness
which was a preenrsor to the sad event le
gan a little less than two years ago, when
he was threatened with heart trouble.
Ills Ilirth and Public Career.
Senator Heck came from the shire in
Scotland where the poet Burns wrotcjiis
sweetest songs. He was born Feb. 13.1S-J3.
He went to Kentucky as a Ixiy, and was
educated at a little college in Islington.
There he also studied law, and there he
afterward became the partner of John C.
Breckinridge. He served four terms in
congress from the Iiexington district, and
at the lime of his death was in his third
term in the senate, and had been elected
to a fourth. Senator Beck was no orator,
and it is a remarkable fact that, not leing
such, he could lie elected from a district
which produced Clay and Breckenridge.
He was the only man who made a name
in Kent ucky n.s a statesman who was not a
gifted speaker, and he owed his success to
a well-balanced brain, a pleasant manner,
and excellent "horse sense."
Ills Appearance in the Forum.
He was a curious speaker. A giant of a
man; tall, broad-shouldered, and big
hearted, his very weight commanded at
tention. He had a broad, full face, cov
ered with a grizzly beard of iron-gray,
bright, black eyes, full of earnestness, and
a pleasant mouth. When speaking he
would grow much excited and the words
would flow out in a torrent. He talked
faster than any man in the senate, and be
always wilted his collar during a speech.
In a Kentucky campaign Senator Sher
man is reported as saying: '"Beck rests
while he is speaking." If this was so it
was a curious kind of resting, and one
which would hardly take the place of
The Senator's Life at Woodreve A Crow
for Senator Vest.
Since the death of Mrs. Beck, some three
or four years ago, the senator has passed
very little time in his state, spending his
summer months and occasional holidays
with his only daughter, Mrs. Goodloe. In
the winter their home was at the Elizabeth
house, but in the summer they occupied
their country seat, alout three miles from
town, from which the most charming view
of Washington aud the surrounding
country in every direction is obtained.

from it the land slopes in every direction,

He Helped About the Farm.
Here in the summer afternoons one
would find Senator Beck sitting enjoying
the coo breeze or straying atiout the
grounds helping Betty, as he called Mrs.
Goodloe, feed the chickens, nurse the
young orphaned calves, hive the bees,
hunt for the gui nea-hen, or turkey nests.

ments were with the rod and gun. He
frequently put to blush young officers-
friends of Maj. Goutlloe, when the glass
balls would ny to pieces under his steady
Bagging a Itish of Crow.
One day the senator was found in a very
happy mood overkilling a crow which had
beeu making sad havoc among the cher
ries. He was maturing a plan to seud
the crow to Senator Vest as the first game
of the season, hoping he would indulge
literally in a "dish of crow," which deli

Mrs. Goodloe said that she had lx-en
awakened that morning by bearing her
father going stealthily down-stairs, and,
kuowiug his then critical condition, she
ran out to attend to his wants, when she
spied him descending the stairway on tip
toe in his night shirt, shot-gun in baud.
From his brusque exterior one would not
have supposed Senator Beck to lie a fine,
classical scholar, but he was, and he de
lighted in repeating pages from the clas
sical aud modern poets. This fund of knowl
edge, together with that education which
contact with the world iu the struggle with
poverry gives, had whetted his mind to a
brilliancy and keenness of wit seldom
found among tliuse of his nationality, lie
seemed to have more more of the quick
wit of the sister race the Irish.
Hla General I'opularlty.
All about the Capitol was heard the
most sincere and earnest expressions of re
gret yesterday afternoon. Mr. Beck was
extremely popular With the mem
bers of the senate and its employes
and officers alike. He had many warm
friends on the Republican side of the
chamber, and no enemies. Senator Beck
was greatly beloved by the emnloves
of the senate for his uniform kindness and
courtesy and his active interest iu their
welfare. Instances of this were repeated
Sunday. One of them was the case of
John Dudley, a colored man, an old sol
dier and member of the G. A. R.. who had
been discharged from his place. He went
to Senator Beck and presented his case.
On the floor of the senate the warm
hearted Kentnckian made a plea for the
colored man, with whon he had not been
previously acquainted, that was so effec
tive that Dudley is still upon the rolls of
tne uapitol force.

Arrangements for Senator Beck's fu-!

The formal announcement of his death

Hoard's words when asked by a corre
!oiiriit as to his intention in case the
state nominating convention should uttcb
up a compromise plutfomi in relation to
the Dennett law for him to stand on, which
should le conspicuous for its omission of
the vital principles of that law. He did
not consider that the recent meeting of
Republicans had any liearing on the con

and that I do stick to, for every child reared
in this country should lie taught reading,
