Thb Moline city council adopted tbe
ordinances last night empowering tbe
Holmes syndicate to adopt electricity as a
motive power on its lines running through
tbat city, but providing tbat a conductor
be placed on every car on the Union line,
and that the Moline & Rock IsUnd road
pay to tbe city of Moline one per cent of
its gross earnings In Rock Island and Mo
line. It is bard to understand why Mo
liiie should foltow tbe rxample of Daven
port in attempting to handicap tbe Holmes
people in tbeir efforts to give the people
tbe best possible street railway service. As
to tbe Moline council demanding any per
cent of tbe earnings in Rock Island is too
silly to consider, and it should make no
unreasonable demands in its own
city. The telephone company, too, is
hampering tbb Holmes company all it
can in putting up it wires, but this mat
ter is likely to be sstisfac'orily settled.
Tue work of preparing for the electric
equipment is going etadily forward in
Rock Island, however. Poles are being
erected for the "overhead wire, tbe under
ground wire except In the paved portions,
being for the most part in. Rock Island
will bi in reidiness for the commence
ment of tbe electric railway system and
will have its cars running before Daven
poJt and Moline get tbro igh seeing how
much they can hamper the Holmes syn
dicate in its enterprise.

An Hydrophobia Preventive.
Col. V. G. Hill says that alum water is
an unfailing swcilic for hydrophobia. In
bis younger days, when he was wont to
room over tbe hills of Coweta in quest of
aeer ana other game which abounded iu
our forests at that time, rattlesnakes were
very numerous, and it was no uncommon
occurrence for hunting dogs to be bitten
by them. Tbe remedy in such cases was a
strong solution of alum (which was al
ways carried along for such emergencies).
with which the dog would be drenched as
soon as bitten. Uaually iu half an hour
the dog would be up and oa the trail again,
and as active and alert as If uothing had
happened. Some time since his dog, with
several others, was bitten by a rabid
canine, and remembering his old remedy
for rattlesnake bites he drenched the dog
with alum water. All the other dogs bit
ten developed hydrophobia, while his has
never shown the slightest symptom of ra
bies, though nearly a year has elapsed since
it was bitten. Newman (Ua.) Herald.
How the Earth W11 Weighed.
In 1773 Professor Maskelyne, with his
assistants, made experiments at Mount
Schihallion, Perthshire, Scotland, by which
they determined that the attraction ex
erted by that mountain caused the plumb
liue to deviate nearly six seconds from it,
normal. Professors Playfair, Cavendish
and Ilutton, knowing the structural com
position of Schihallion, determined that
the mean density of the mountain was to
that of the earth ad 5 to 8. From this the
mean density of tbe earth as compared
with water wan determined to be as u is to
1. Other more recent experiments made
the ratio vary from 'i to 6'i to 1. Taking
6 as the average result of all experi
ments, the diameter of the earth as 7,912.41
miles, and tbe weight of a cubic foot of
water as CS.S2 pouudti, the weight of the
aarth would bu 5,84'J trillions of tons of

Republicans of Illinois are in despt rate
straits about tbeir candidates for coog; ess,
says tbe Chicago Ketci. The managers
of tbe party ignored tbe school issue, on
tbe (lea that this was a national campaign
and that it had to be fought out on the
national issue of the tariff. Pretense was
made tbat tbls wou'd sweep tbe state for
republican success. But only foretime
was thia theory held.
Tbe members of the state central c il
mittee suddenly awoke to a realiettioi of
the fact tbat several of their nominees for
enncress are in danger of defeat. In the
1st district Mr. Taylor is threatened by a
revolt in bis party ranks; Mr. Mason in
fie 3d, is not at all secure; Mr. Hil1, in
tbe 8tb. is having a hot tight; Mr Pc st,
in the 10th, is unable to make a canvtss
because of ill-beallb; the defeat of Mr
Gest, in tbe 11th, is reluctantly admitted;
and tbe warfare upon Mr. Caooon in the
15lh may result in bis retirement in spite
of bis prominence, long service, and use
fulness. Tbe tariff bad done it all, aid
still tbe central committee held to tbe
McKinley bill and let tbe compulsory
education question go
Political and public surprise at such
short-sighted policy was expressed in the
most emphatic terms. Men of promi
nence in every congressional district in
the state urged tbe committee to mae
the issue of the school bouse direct, and
declared tbat upon that ques ion the re
publicans could win by overwhelmii g
majorities. Wr y the commiitee bet-ili-ted-they
could not conjecture, and maiiy
of them have expressed themselves in
strong terms upon what they pronouuet d
an unpralleled exbib tion of stupidiiv,
Now, however, tbe secrets of the execu
tive committee-room are leuking out, and
the force of Chairman Jones' txpressinn
tbat this "is a national campaign" is b
coming apparent. Senator Cullom ia to
be a candidate frr the republicsn .nomi
nation for the presidency in 18U2. and t
is deemed necessary for his Bucctss 1 1
elect the congressmen and the legifUtur-?
on the issue of the tariff. It is uot tn -lit
ved there csn be a national campaign
on the question of tbe maintenance of tbe
school bouse, and a canvass of tbat kind
in Illinois) tbls year would let the senator
sink into insignificance a: a presidential
possibility. Tbe question could not be
wholly ignored, ami tbe senator himself
has bad somethiog to say in beh If o
compulsory education, hut bv the orders
of the party managers the su! j ;ct is to bt
kept in the ba kt round,
A little while ago it was believed by
the stale committee that tbe tariff wou'u
be popular. It was learned the contrary.
Then it became necessary to take another
tack and attempt to carry things with a
wboop and hurrah from the stump. Ar
rangements were made to bring Speaker
Reed into the state, and it wss announced
tbat he woul I speak 10 Congressman
Cannon's, Hill's and Gest's districts as
well as in Chicago. It has argued tbat
the presence of the quorum counter
would be worth thousands of votes in
these localities. Tbe announcement of
Mr. Reed's eoming was received with en1
thusiasm by strong republicans, but it
did not have the effect desired. Tbe op
position to tbe candidates in half
dozen districts intensified rather than
diminished from day to day. Something
else bad to be done to stay tbe tide.
Money was the thing determined
upon. It is a great power on election
day and just preceding it. A fact known
to a number of "insiders" jn republican
affairs is tbat tbe state centrsl committee
made an earnest appeal to tbe moneyed
men of the party to come to the rescue.
Conferences have been held with them
during tbe week. The national commit
tee was notified of the emergency and
consented to take a band. The culmina
tion of these talks aout the necessity
for bard cash probably came, and it is
believed the Illinois republicans were
promised all tbe money they will need to
be placed "where it will do the most
good" for the party.
