Springfield, March 10 Special
An immense gathering occupied the
house chamber today in anticipation of
the election of a U. S. senator. TheYuck
were escorted in between two men or
carried in on chairs. At the roll call 24
senators and 78 representatives answered'
toihe ceremony giving Phlmer 101 out of
the 102 votes cast. Adjourned.

The city election is only four weeks
away, and it is therefore high time for the
taxpayers and voters of Rock Island to be
considering and discussing who they de
sire to fill the various offices for tbe en
su ngtwo years. The greatest import
ance attaches to the election of mayor
and councilmen especially. Rock Island
has entered into a new era within the past
few years. The antiquated spirit of fogy
ism and rtUrdation has been discarded,
permanently, we trust, and in its place
has grown a desire for advancement and
progress. This sentiment for expansion
and development is reflected in paved
streets, unriyalled street cr equipment
soon to be operated by electricity, insuis
ing rapid transit, the prospective estab
lishment of a public building adequate
for the accommodation of federal require
ments, the erection of a viaduct oyer the
railroad tracks on Twentyfourth street
in the near future, which will
be a long stride toward a union
depot, the promised adoption of
a paid fire department wiih electric alarm
system and numerous other improvements
of a permanent character.
This favorable condition of affairs,
with a bright prospect ahead for grander
achievements, makes it imperative that no
mistake be made in tha selection of men
who will be inducted into offion nTt
month. A live energetic man should be
choten by the democrats as a candidate
for mayor. He should be a good business
man, familiar with the wants and grow
ing necessities of the city. The same
character of men 6bould be nominated for
the council so that the executive and
legislative branches will not clash. If
good judgment is displayed in this regtrd,
there will be do question as to the suc
cess of the democratic ticket, while on
the other hand indifference and a weak
candidate means detest.
Some IU'virl Anecdote.
Dr. Johnsons Tribute to Reynolds
Dr. Johnson's ready wit has become
proverbial. "Good morning, Oliver,"
quoth he to Goldsmith one morning,
meeting tbe modest author on the Strand.
"Whither awayr "To Sir Joshua's,"
replied Goldsmith. "And -wherefore, O
modest Noll! do yon seek Sir Joshua?"
queried Samuel. "To have my portrait
painted." "Just my lock!" retorted
Johnson, like a flash. "I've lost my bet."
"Have you a lxt?" said Goldsmith, with
a show of interest. "Yes. I bet Gar
rick five lob yon would not be immor
tal; but, by the gods, if Reynolds paints
yon I've lost." Goldsmith smiled weak
ly and passed on.
Garricb's Estimate Garrick, upon be
ing asked whether or not he thought
Hamlet crazy, replied that he really did
not know, but judged he might be if he
ever saw himself played by Barry.
The value of this witticism is some
what destroyed by the suspicion of its
having been inspired by professional
Dumas and Monte Cristo "Dumas,
said Balzac, "if yon were writing Monte
Cristo over again would you do it again
as you did it first?" "Not exactly. In
the main it would have been tbe same."
"In what respect would yon have altered
it?" "In rio resjtect I should have
augmented it." "And how?" "By send
ing the count to the United States senate
for a term. He was rich enough, heaven
knows." It was this jest that enabled
Balzac to realize why Damas was con
sidered worthy to associate with the im
It is related by an actor who overheard
the conversation that a few mornings
since Mr. Barrett left the Players' club
earlier than usual to go to the theatre. Mr.
Booth had ensconced himself with a pipe
and newspaper, and looked at his com
panion in surprise.
"Whither now, Larry?" asked the
"To rehearse," answered Mr. Barrett,
as he fastened another button.
"To rehearse? Are you always re
hearsing?" queried Booth. "It seems to
me you are doing more of it than usual
rt Well, you see, we have a new piece
on Saturday." '
"And pray, what ia the name of it?"
" 'Romeo and Juliet."'
"Come now, Larry," laughed Booth,
"and what part do you play?"
Mr. Barrett appeared for an instant
dazed. "What part do you suppose?" he
"Pray, how should I know?" answered
Booth very seriously. "Is it the nurse?"
Barrett left the club in three mighty
strides. The Theatre.
"Remote, unfriended, me'nncholy,
slow," he walked through the busy world.
People believed be waa crossed in love,
but I knew better. He had a chronic
cold and nobody had told him to cure it
with Dr. Bub's Cough Syrup.
