was behaving himself in such 'vay that
the officer was obliged to conduct him to

fellow began tearing off his clothes, and
it was as much as the officer could do to
keep him in a clothed condition. At the
station when placed in a cell hi; literally
tore his clothes 'to piece". His panta
loons, shirt and everything he
could rend he made ouick ar.d sav&pe

THE ROCK ISLAND
HINTS TO CANDIDATES.
Moaae. Intrranlnsllna; With the Vntrra
While the candidates on the democrats
ic ticket for county and legislative offices
are all well received by tbe people, yet
those who are asking for support should
at least personally present themselves to
the voters. There may be an impression
among some of them that they baye lived
Idng enough in the community and are
consequently so well known, that their
appearance is not necessary. But this is
a mistake. No matter how well known
a man be he will still find a number who
have never seen him, and a greater num
ber with whom he has never talked. A
prejudice may be set aside by coming in
contact with the people, and even if such
a thing does not exist a fraternal ming
ling cannot fail to be productive of much
Those of the democratic candidates
who bave not as yet presented themselves
to the people thould lose no unnecessary
lime in doing so. If questions are to be
asked and answered new is the uiooer
lime to do it.
In this connection it should be said
Mr. Gordon in bis outings through the
county bas everything to hop for in ihe
matter of a lurge vote. The question of
majority is aa yet undecided as to extent,
but that it will be a flattering one there is
not the slightest doubt. It could hardly
be otherwise expected, as Mr. Gordon is
thoroughly, well and favorably known
throughout the county.
Let the other cand dates make them
selves as well known and there will be
nothing to regret as to size of majorities.
M hat a Vrrenbarker Maya.
A Mercer county grcenbacker, who
lives at Aledo, recently bad this to say re
garding Mr. Cable:
"Politicians, with an eye for business.
were plenty. The democratic nominee
for congress, Ben T. Cable, was a visitor,
and he became acquainted with a large
number of our people. Being a green
backer myself, and they having no candi
date, leaves us to choose between the two
old parties and vote for the one that we
think will best carry out liioee principles,
if we can find him. The quetttona that J.
S. Smith, of Rock River Stock Farm, pro
pounded to Mr. Cable in regard to free
coinage or silver, increase in the circulat
ing medium, in regard to trutU. govern
ment control of railroads, Hennepin
canal, tariff, etc.. and bis straight fors
ward answer, without any quibbling.
candor compels me to sav was unex
pectedly satisfactory. Greeubackers
ought to advocate a tariff for revenue
in preference to a tariff for robbery and
calling it protecting the American la
borer. I believe that to tax any class
of citizens to build up another class is
wrong, and howling protection to build
up a home market until there is nothing
leit nut mortgaged homes, don t make it
right. If the people would or ly stop and
think, and lay aside their prejudices, and
then think again, a political cyclone
would sweep every protectionist from the
face of tbe earth.
I had the pleasure of being made ac
quainted with Mr. Cable, and I found him
lo be a plain, frank, straightforward ap
pearing gentleman, pleasant and agreea
ble in bis manners. If all the people in
this district would read his reply to the
questions of Mr. Smith, and then could
only have the pleasure of meeting him,
there would be no doubt of the result at
the ballot box. and Mr. Gest would be
laid on the shelf for voting against the
free coinage of silver, and for the Mc-
Kinley bill, and for the Force bill requir
ing soldiers at tbe polls.''
Tbe republican press of this district
professes great surprise liecause the
friends of Mr. Cattle are not rilled with
dismay at the outlook for tbe Novemner
election. Tbe republican press is just
now engaged in trying to convince Mr.
Cable's friends that that gentleman does
not stand the ghost of a show, and might
as well give up now as a month later
when the stern decree of fate will compel
him lo rlinquih all hope of attaining to
The litest argument against Mr. Cable
is found in tbe vote two Years ago wben
Mr. Geft was elected bv a plurality of 2.-
7 over Prentiss. This is urged as a
sure indication of victory this fall. But
that was two years ago, and times change
In tbe first place 188 was a presiden
tial year. Thai in itself, as bas been
shown in the past, gives a big increase in
the republican vote. There is always a
falling down in off years among the faith
ful of lbe g. o. p.. with the result that
the idols of that party frequently gi t left
on those occasions.
Another thing. Tbe republican party
won two years ago on lbe strength of a
pledge whicb tbey have never fulfilled.
They promised t reduce the tariff and
tbey bave increased it. The people asked
iir a loar, ana the republican parly gave
mem a alone.
Altogether it looks rather bad for the
republican party. Tbe fact that Mr.Gest
received a plurality of 2.000 two years
ago, indicates nothing for this year.

Some Carious Patents. -
A western man has patented a shield to
prevent a horse from being cut by wire
fences, and this consists of a sort of armor
of padded cotton or leather which is
strapped around tbe neck, breast and front
legs or the horse. Another way of prevent
ing horses from hurting themselves on
these fences ia found in the electrical divis
ion. The wires are charged with elec
tricity, and when the horse goes against
tbem he gets a shock which drives'him
back. In the same division there is an
electric plan for preventing horses from
cribbing. Ihe manger is charged with
electricity, and the moment the horse at
tempts to crib be gets a shock. Then there
is a chicken hobbler consisting of a spring
attached to a hen's leg, whicb, if the hen
attempts to scratch, w ill move her onward,
and will in fact walk her right out of the
garden. Frank G. Carpenter's Letter.
Women Crowding- Into Journalism.
I have employed women in office work in
newspapers with considerable satisfaction,
and in numberless cases I have found that
they could do some kinds of reporting far
better than men. It is a mistake to think
that women are only fit to write fashion
articles. The editor of one of the great
SutHTtiy newspapers of New York is a
woman. And she not only manitgfs to
keep her paper in full touch with the
times, but she often leads in public thought
.Most editors trivc women a chance bv be
ing unfair to them. 1 think the day is
coming when women will do a large pro
portion of newspaper n-portinir. In ne-irlv
all the big cities they are now doinga little
of it. Even the house of parliament has
been forced to admit, a woman lo Ihe re
porters' a illery, very much to the dinzust
