A Good Republican Lady Take Rim
to Took tr Betraying- the . O. P.
Representative Payne was set upon by
an irate lady constituent while on the
train between JoMin and Barstow Mon
dy morning. The lady is connected
with one of the largest, best known and
mo6t active family of republicans in the
county. In this conversation for once
she did all the talking ai d scored the rep
resentative of the g. o. p. in a most
scathing manner. Said she: "Are you the
representative of the constituency that
worked as faithfully for your election es
was -ever done, or are you the representa
tive of those that did all in their power to
defeat you Our people worked for you
that you might assist in sending to the
United Slates senate- a anan that would
carry out our idea in governmental
affairs. If our people wished Streeter
or organized farmers' representa
tion then they would undoubt
edly have elected Jhe other fellow.
We are now .between two fires as
constituent of you, Crawford and Beale.
The g. o p. la febld out by our represen
tatives to only a handful of third party
en, to whom they owe no fealty, while
that noble band of 101 are battling for
principle first, la?t and all the time. Oh,
this is true and honorable consistency on
their part, as it should be in a representa
tive farm of government like ours. Tour
position is that of the dog in the manger.
Too cannot have the office for ourselves,
hence will not let that noble patriot and
soldier statesman have it."
Payne winced perceptibly nnder the
above cross fire, but made no pledges
of political reformation . Be gave a sigh
of relief when Bars tow was reache&how
ever, end hardly waited until the train
stopped before he excused himself and
scrambled from the cars.

The executive board of Augustana
college at its meeting yesterday afternoon
elected Prof. O.of Otsson, of Woodhull.
111., to succeed the late Dr. Basselq uist,
as president of that institution, subject
to the confirmation of the synod, which
will undoubtedly confirm him as com
munications have been received from sev
eral different conferences recommending
him, and asking that he be elected.
Prof. O.sson was born in Sweden
March 1, 1841. and received his educa
tion in that country, coming to the Un
ited States in 1869 and settling in Kansas
where he resided seven years, during
which time he served two terms in the
Kansas legislature. He came to Rock
Island in 1876 and for twelve years was a
professor in the seminary at Augustana.
He has made two trips to Europe, each
time traveling extensively in foreign
countries. He is the author of a number
of valuable works among which are, "To
Rome and Home Again," "Greetiaes
From Abroad," "At the Cross," and
"Christian Hope.-' Be also published a
paper in Kansas devoted to the interests
of Christianity. Hm last trip to Europe
was made in 18S9. returning to thi9
country in 1890, since which time hs has
resided in Woodhull.
The Kieetrle Equipment.
The four months originally asked for
by the street railway syndicate and
granted for equipping the Union street
railway line with electricity in Moline
expired yesterday. At the Moline coun
cil meeting Monday evening a petition
was presented asking for an extension of
time from four months to seven. Presi
de at Walker, who was present, was ac
corded the privilege of being heard in this I
matter. He said that owing to unavoid
able delay in the setting up' of their
boilers, they found it impossible to get
the road in operation within the time
limited. They have the machinery all
here, and the cars on the grouad, and
hoped to have the lines in operation bv
electricity by April 1. They, however,
asked for the longer time so that any
emergency that may arise might be met.
He also asked an extension of one month
for the completion of the Moline & Rock
Island line. Both requests were granted.
