A Day of Terrifically Torrid Tem
The Hottest of the Heni with Her-
rnry at 01 ! the Shade Belief
Some od9 remarked this morning that
it was hot, and the mild assertion was
not disputed, though It was made within
the hearing of a number of citizens. The
sun's rays I ave been positively "felt"today
and y ester lay. The pavement blistered
and glared under the torrid sunshine and
there has len all day a heavy humidity
in the atm sphere taking the starch out
of the stiff est garments and the enterprise
out of the nerviest man with neatness and
dispatch. The man who went forth
proud and jetermined this morning will re
turn home tonight humiliated and wilted.
Notwithstanding the promise of rain last
night anri the vivid lightning that
evinced tie fact that the elements
were on tl e move and that there was
clashing somewhere, this morning
dawned char, sullen and sultry. From
the first moment of his appearance Old
Sol glowed and glowed viciously, as
though he would condense a whole sum
mer's torridity into one awful day. Not
a capful of air stirred the foliage, and the
beat seemed fairly palpable to the touch.
There wat no escape from it. It perme
ated. The only thing that exhibited any
sign of enterprise and bustle was the
mercury. Early iu the morning it woke
up, turned over .and took a long breath,
then expectorated on its hands, grasped
the next riund.of the ladder and skipped
nimbly aloft to the 85 mark, from which
proud altitude it gleefully viewed the
dripping wreck its work bad wrought.
During tha balance of the day its prog
ress was steady und invincible, and
about 8 c 'clock this afternoon it poked
ts head orer the top of the tube and sur
veyed a prostrated city at its feet.
What adtserted appearance the streets
would have presented this afternoon but
for tbe school election which has brought
to tbe surface all manner of voters, who
under mst cireumstances, dou't care a
fig "whether school keeps or not." The
election has absorbed none of the heat
f anythirg it has intensified it, for it has
brought c ut a flurried brain to keep com
pany witt. an over-heated being. Those
whom duty has called out have clung to
shady sides of the stree;a and drageed
their weary weights limply along with
dripping brows and wilted liocn. Tbe
mortality among collars and shirt bos
oms will cause tbe laundry men to dance
in ghoulish glee. Even the erstwhile ir
repressive small boy gave it up in damp
distress, and contented himself with ex
ploding an occasional firecracker where
it would do the most barm. The street
car bora s suffered terribly, though they
were relieved as often as possible.
It has been the hottest dy of the sea
son according to the signal service obser
vations, the mercury registering at 91 in
tbe shade at 2 o'clock this afternoon
Yesterday it was 89. But the woather
bureau j romises relief tomorrow, when
cooler and fair weather is predicted.
Suffering, sweltering humanity will pray
that the prognosticator may bave judged
wisely this lime.
B ARD TO SWALLOW.
Thr Kflrrt That the Paid Fire ttrpart-
mpnt Has on the Moraiac Paper.
The improvement Rock Island is de
termined to make this year in its fire de
partment is a hard morse) for tbe poor
union to swallow after all, and this
morning it calls tbe fact that a paid de
partmect is to be established, a delusion
on tbe part of the Argcb. Yet it goes
further to remark that "the council ap
propriated $6,000 for the fire service
every cent it could spare, the idea being
to devote $2,000 to new bouse on tbe
Triangle; about $1,500 as payments on
an electric alarm and a chemical engine,
and the balance for current expenses.
Tbe city is assured of two firsfclass vol
unteer hose companies in tbe Franklins
and Oil pins at the extremities, and there
will be no trouble about getting a good
strong company to have charge of the
book and ladder apparatus, hose and
chemiciil engine at the Central engine
That is exactly what tbe council pro
poses t) do, and it is what the Argus has
said right along, but tbe Union certainly
has no misconception as to the meaning
of a Cr U-cluss company for the bouse on
the triangle. It surely is not misguided
and ierorant enough to think that tbe
council is going to fit up the house on
Flat-iron square and pat in a chemical en
gine atd other apparatus, characteristic of
first class department and then put the
same in charge of volunteers, or trust to
livery utable teams to get them to fires.
Bow much better would the city fare
under uch an arrangement? Promptness
the ilrst aim of a disciplined fire de-
partmt nt, and for this reason the com-
Danv i a charge of the hook and ladder
truck, the chen-ical engine if one. is
bough '. and at least one hose company
must always be on hand and paid. Tbe
council realizes this. The plan to main
tain th3 Franklins and Oilpins on tbe out
skirts is volunteers is not a bad one, but
the ce itral company must be composed
of oaiil men. This insures a paid de
partment which is causing tbe Ahgtjs so
much gratification and the Union so much
grief rnd desperation.

Halted la Marriage by the Bride's
The German Lutheran church at the
corner of Twentieth street and Fifth ave
nue was the scene of an imposing wed
ding ceremony last night. At 7 o'clock
a large congregation witnessed the mar
riage by the bride's' father, the beloved
pastor of the church. Rev. C. A. Men
nicke. of Rev. Fred Kroeger, of Brandy
wine, W. Va., and Miss Maria Mennicke.
The handsome young couple were at
tended in tbe solemn and happy event by
Mr. Ernest Mennicke and Miss Mamie
Schneider. Mr. August Moeller and Miss
Carrie Mennicke. Mr. Geo. Moeller and
Miss Rose Lothringer. Frieda Mennicke
and Annie Moeller were sweet little flows
After the ceremony a reception was
held at the home of Father Mennicke ad
joining the church, and tbe bridal couple
were the recipients not only of many
happy wishes and deserved compliments,
but numerous beautiful and uBeful pres
ents. They will remain in Rock Island
about ten days before proceeding to
their home in West Virginia.
What et Has Really Dane.
Over a week ago the Chicago Tribune
contained the following:
Mr. Gest, of the Rock Island district
has managed to do a good deal for his con
stituents this session. He has got the
senate bill for a $75,000 building at Rock
Island reported favorably and in a good
place on the calendar. He has also on
the calendar in a favorable report the bill
to establish a port of delivery at Rock
Island. He had a good deal to do with
the Hennepin appropriation of $500,010
in the river and harbor bill, which went
through the house all right and bids fair
to run the gauntlet of the senate. A pro
vision in the same bill is for a eovern
ment survey with a view to removing the
sandbar at Warsaw. Mr. Gest baa also
got through a number of private pension
and other bills for his constituents.
For some reason the Union of this city
did not get sight of this notice until last
Sunday, and it published it then no d oub
in response to a note from Washington
sharply calling attention to it, and the
paper's own neglect in overlooking it.
Now let us aee-for how much of the above
Mr. Gust is reallyWtitled to credit. The
senate bill for a government building,
which by the way was for $100,000, was
reported favorably through the efforts of
President Hass, of the Rock Island Citi
zens' Improvement association, and Sen
ator Spooner; Gest had nothing whatever
to do with it. The Hennepfn canal appro
priation'a success was due to Congressman
Henderson's efforts. Gest was ignored
and insulted by Speaker Reed, when Gen
Henderson, after he had done all the
work, courteously gave Gest a chance to
identify himself with the measure
by allowing him to go to the
speaker an J asking him to recognize
General Henderson on a certain day.
Mr. Reed's humiliating reply. ' No, sir,"
will be remembered, and Gen. Hender
son, no doubt, wished afterward he had
gone himself. The provision for the
government survey for removing a sand
bar at Warsaw came in tbe ordinary run
of river improvement work, such as Is
provided for each session, and if any
particular congressman called attention
to the desirability of the removal of the
obstruction it was Congressman Gear, of
Iowa. So after all tbe extent of Mr.
Gest's work in two terms in congress, con
sists in getting on tbe calandar in a fav
orable report the bill to establish a port
of delivery at Rock Island. Whether or
not it will get further the future will re -veal.
If some influential congressman
will help Gest out tbe bill may be suc
The Nefcaal Eleetiaa.
The election for two members of tbe
board ot education is proceeding at the
Wide-Awake hose house, and is if any
thing more animated than that of two
years ago when Directors Carter and
Knowlton were elected. D. J. Sears, the
defeated candidate then, is employing the
same tactics this year to gain the election,
and the city has undergone the disgrace
all day of seeing men hauled through the
streets from the upper saw mill in sub
jection to their boss and voted. At 3
o'clock nearly 1200 votes had been polled
of which President T. H. Thomas, Dr.
Carl Bernhardi and D. J. Sears seemed
to have the bulk, and it is among these
three candidates that the contest seems
to be. The returns will be awaited with
much eagerness tonight.
