Rock Island county democrats are not
afraid to vote their preferences in open
convention. What they do is open and
The farmers were out in force yester
day and their influence had a tjreat deal
to do with the shaping of the personnel
of the county ticket.
Thk young democracy have three pop
ular representatives on the county ticket,
all of them possessing elements of
strength that will show the wisdom of
their nominations when the votes are
counted next November.
The soldiers were kindly remembered
by the democratic county convention in
nominating an old veteran for the princi
pal county oQlie. Several republican
grand army men have already been heart!
to say that Gordon would get their votes.
The selection of Sheriff T. S. Silvia as
chairman of the democratic county cen
tral committeer was a wise and judicious
action on the part of the democratic
convention. It insures & vigorous cam
paign, and will instill confidence in the
party throughout the county.
The enthusiasm and harmony of yes
tc relay 's convention was in striking con
trust with that of the republicans, where
discord and wrangling were the prevail
ing features. Every delegate went home
with the conviction deep in his breast
that an invincible ticket had been placed
in the field.
Col. Hjalmar Kohler is in the
"dumps" today. He seems to have just
comprehended that there is another mac
in the count? :Lat Can and will discharge
the duties of county clerk. And that
such a man lives in Moline makes the
discovery doul.ly unwelcome to Kohler.
Mk. Adam Stamh. the gentleman
whose name was presented to yesterday's
convention as the "lower end" candi
date for county treasurer, is one of the
most prominent and popular young
farmers of that section. Considering the
lateness with which his candidacy was
announced, the vote given him was quite
I'oor Tom Campbell! It is rather
cruel to blast bis hopes and ambitions so
early in the fray. But be still has the
position of official crop reporter to fall
back on. While it seems to be actually
necessary to Tom's peace of mind to hold
an office of some kind, still the people
seem inclined to withhold the county
treasurersbip from him just the same.
Hon. W. H. Gest will be the republi
can candidate for congress from the Elev
enth district, and Hon.B.T. Cable will be
the democratic candidate. The contest
will be a close odd, owing to the fact
that both live in Rock Island, and are
popular at home. The closer the contest
the better, because the winner must rep-,
resent the district well or go under the
next time. Alexis Argiu.
"Capt. Turnbull will make a model
congressman." Monmouth AtUu.
When is the captain to be elected? If
the Allan would notice "how the cat is
jumping" it would abandon all hopes
of Turnbull receiving the nomina
tion, by the republicans. Keitbsburg
townsbio was opposed to Gest, and sent
an anti-Gest delegation to the republican
convention, but when tbey arrived in
Aledo they found a different state of af
fairs, and a Gest delegation was ap
pointed to the congressional convention.

Why don't the republicans of the 11th
district nominate Col. Robert Moir, of
Oquawka for congress T We venture the
prediction that Reed and McKinley
would have found him a rougher nut to
crack than Butterworth of Ohio. Had
Moir been in congress be would have
made as stormy a speech as Butterworth
against the McKinley outrage, and when
he came to vote there is no power on
earth that would or could have made that
honest old Scotchman vote for that out
rage on the people. Moir could not be
in harmony with the eastern bosses of the
party, but be would be with the party in
the 11th Illinois district on that question.
He has more brains than half a dozen
men like Gst, but he can't be controlled

At the Monument Site.
.The mass of H'ople in front and around
the monument by 'lt. m., the hour set. for
the exercises to le given, was simply im
possible to estimate. It was a sea of faces
that extended in every di red iou about as
rar as tne eye couiii reacu. the pro
gramme at the statue was as follows: A

I'nveilitig the Statue.
An interesting incident of the ceremo
nies was the unveiling of the statue. This
duty hadbeeji assigned to Mrs. Hendricks.
She had received an ovation all along tin
line oi marcn. ana again wtien she was
seen to ascend the platform and take her
seat. The close of the singing of the
hymn "America" was the signal to unveil
and as the strains of music reused the
widow of the revered statesman pulled
the line which unloosed the l!ag which
veiled the statue.and as the folds fell awav
and uncovered the well-known features of
the dead statesman a mighty shout went
up that rolled from center to circumfer
ence of the vast throng and was taken u
again and again until the roar was lik
the meeting of mighty waters.
Senator Turple's Address.
A dedicatory ode by .Tames Whitcomh
Riley was then read, and the address of
the day followed. Senator Turnip t'iirg
the Seaker. His oration was a fining
eulogy of the great 11. .osier statesman.
He traced his career from his birth in
Ohio to his untimely death: told of bis
firm stand for the I'nion in the days of 'HI,
defended and eulogized his position dur
ing reconstruction tlays, when he insisted
that the states bail never been out of the
Union; that the acts of secession were in-
vaiui, nnu mat as soon as the war was
over the southern states dropped back
Into their places in the I'nion with all
their rights unimpaired. Said the orator:
Thiis he taught the lesson of those days
never to lie forgotten, that the war had
been waged for the preservation of the
Lnion, not frrrThe destruction of the
states," and he declared that Hendricks'
position had been repeatedly continued
since that time by the United Slates su
Close of Torpic's Address.
In conclusion the speaker said: "If
Webster lie styled the expounder of the
constitution of the old constitution, with
its half truths and compromises, upon a
subject noted, but mummed therein. Hen
dricks may be as justly called the ex
pounder of the new. If the one is known
as the constructionist, the other will In
known as the reconstructionist of his age
as the true interpreter of the constitu

and character of the union thus reformed,
restored, and re-established.
Aniid the clangor of arms, the shout

scarcely died away, lie was pre-eminently
the civilian and publicist of that moment

More than thirty years ago he had lieen
the envoy of the same society to offer a
similar tribute to the memory of Daniel

and works of Hendricks and in conclud

wreath as a token of the esteem and ad

HilL The governor had come to the ded
ication with the express condition that ho
should not be asked to sieak, but. the de
mand was too vociferous and he slowly re
sponded. As he went forward he was
greeted with enthusiastic cheers. He said
that Hendricks was "the cool, steady,
loyal, unostentatious, but consistent suit
porter of the government in its days of
peril; he loved his state as he loved his
country; his successes in life were your
pride aud glory and when lie died it was
your hour of mourning."
Ala Fnnie the Nation's.
Continuing the governor baid: "His
fame, however, does not lielongto Indiana
alone; it belongs to New York as well, and
to tne whole Union. It should not 1; for
gotten that while he was the governor of
your state and your servant in many other
stations of trust within your domain, he
was also a representative in congress, a
senator of the United States and Mie vice
president of the nation. There is not a
citizen in any part of this broad laud of
ours, no matter how humble he may lie, or
under what skies ho may have I aim born,
who may not justly feel that of the glory
which the life and public services of
Thomas A. Hendricks reflected upon the
wholo country some share belongs to
a Tribute from New York.
The governor concluded his remarks with
the following words: "Among the illustri
ous men who have been given to the
country by the mighty west during the
last half century, anil whose lives aud in
fluences have helped shape our national
destiny, conspicuous will stand forth that
distinguishedcliaracter whose pame is on
every lip at thiA-sjrur, ana wliose mem
ory will especially ever remain eng -af ted
upon the hearts and entwined ia t ie af
fections of the people of Indiana. Ttie cit
izens of New York, for whom I pi rticu
larly speak to-day, audio whose behalf I
am permitted to pay this brief tribute to
one whom we regarded as the typical
American of bis time, join with you,
through their representatives here, in
dedicating this monument, and in ex
pressing their admiration for the genius,
the patriotism, the integrity, the frivate
life and public character of Thomas A.
Hendricks, the scholar, the jurist, the
representative, the senator, the go ernor,
the vice presideut and always th-3 man
of the people,"
M'ortls of Praise from Ohio.
When the speaker resumed his seat and
the cheering had subsided, Grvernor
t'ampliell was called for. He spoke briefly
as follows: "Indiana emblazons the bright
est page of her history with the name of
him whose monument is here dedicated
with such becoming ceremony. Ohio
stands modestly aside, yet, nevertheless,
rejoices in the lesser glory which is re
flected upon herself. She gave birth to
Thomas A. Hendricks; resigned hitn at an
early age to the state of his adoption;
watched his growth with maternal fond
ness, ami lamented his death. Sho comes
to his bier the second mourner in that
great concourse of commonwealths which
to-day pays homage to his memory.''

tJray, and then the denedictioit was pro
nounced. (egrets Tor Wou-Attenlanc.
A letter of regret at inability to attend
was read from President Harrison, who
said that public business kept him at
Washington City, but that it would have
afforded him much pleasure to have
"joined in the testimonial of respect and
affection for his distinguished fellow
townsman. "His eminent public services
ajid his faithful discharge of m my and
important official duties render the com
memoration of his public and private
virtues mo t fitting and proper." wrote
the president. Attorney tieneral Miller
also expressed his regret that he could not
attend the ceremonies and sent a brief
eulogy. Letters in the same tone were re
ceived from Vice I'resideut Moiton aud
Chief Justice Fuller.
A Visit to Mrs. Hendricks.
Governor Hill and Gen. Sickles paid a
long visit to Mrs. Hendricks at her resi
dence. She presented the governor with
a gold headed cane which had be-in given
to Governor Hendricks by the state offi
cers in lsTti, and tien. Sickles received a
cane which hail lieen received from the
Shelby county Democracy in the lifties.
In the course of the visit Gen. Sickles is
said to have remarked that Cleveland had
lieen unfortunate in giving offense to old
line Democrats and taking up with new
men and that I he ex-president hail taken
up with the civil service reformers a little
prematurely, liefore he knew miichalKut
them. Whereat Mrs. Hendricks went to

CASUALTIES AT A FIRE.
An I lilerly Woman Iirops Dead and
Others Fatally Hurt.
Indianapolis. July 2. A midnight fire
at the hamlet of Middletown proved very
disastrous, aside from the Jirojierty dam
aged, which only amounted to aliout
$-'1,000. The whole town turned out to
fight it, aud "Grandma" Misehart, an age
lady, dropped .dead from excitement. It
proved contagious and Capt. C. C. Sheri
dan fell in a cataleptic fit which came near
proving fatal. Then Clint Mowrey rushed
into his burning meat store to recover his
books and cash. The door closed behind
him and he jumped out through a win
dow. He was so badly burned, however,
while imprisoned, that recovery is impos
sible. To cud the list of casualties Dan
iel Iiickle was knocked down and fatally
trampled upon by a horse which his son,
who was alarming the town, rode through
the crowd at breakneck speed.
A SIGNIFICANT OMISSION.
No Loyal Toasts at the Birthday Itanquet
I-oNiHix, July 2. The Conservative
and l iiionists, and some I,ilieraU are
severely commenting on the fact that at
the birt hday dinner given Parnell no loyal
toasts wore offered. This omission is re
garded as the more flagrant because of
the fuct that, the day was also the anni
versary of the coronation of QueerTX'ic
toria, of whom no meution was made in
the toasts or speeches. The Parnellites
admit the breach of custom in neglecting
the proixmal of a toast to her majesty, but
explain that the dinner waa a private one,
and had no political character or signifi
cance whatever. The omission was unfor
tunate, however, aud will undoubtedly lie
alluded to witli effect by Hal four, to show
that the Irish are hoielessly disloyal.

love, shot his sweetheart and a man who
tried to save her, and then put a bullet
through his own heart last night. Chap

habits. The rejection precipitated a spree
during which he remained away from the
He Begins a Fusillade.
Last night he called on Mrs. F.lsner in
an apparently solier condition. She in
vited him into the parlor, and his first
question was: "What, is my bill? I want
to pay it." The unfortunate woman
named the sum, and Chapman reached in
his pocket, but instead of a purse he
pulled out a pistol and liegan firing at
Mrs. F.lsner. She screamed and ran out
to the street, closely pursued by Chap
man. He tired three times and missed.
The fourth shot struck her in the back as
she was escaping through a confectionery

Michael Milgrim, the proprietor of the
t-tore, struck Chapman and got in front of
the woman. Chapman tired again and
shot Milgrim through the body. After
gazing for a few seconds at the txxlies of
the two victims the murderer put the
muzzle of the weapon to his heart, pulled
the trigger and fell dead. Mrs. Klstier
and Milgrim are stilt alive, but their
wounds are believed to lie mortal.
