Rock Island & Milan street railway, at

this morning, and thus ended the anx

been a topic of conversation the past few
months. No other bids were made, ft 33,

that he makes the purchase on behalf of

while the line will be run in coo junction
with the remainder of the system, it will
be owned independently. Mr. Louders
back also slated that if the purchasers re
ceived the proper encouragement they
would re-equip the road and spend as
much as $40,000 to put it in first class
shape. . Of course, Mr. Louderback and
his associates hope to acquire the tower

While Mr. Louderback's associates are

May's grocery is about to inaugurate
the policy so popular with the 'eading
dry goods stores of a series of special
ales to enable people to secure a supply
of standard and seasonable articles at a
material reduction from regular prices.
. The first of these sales has been fixed
for Wednesday next, and will be for one
day only. At 9 o'clock promptly, an im
mense supply of all kinds of canned
goods, consisting of fruits, vegetables,
fish and meats will be offered at special
prices that housekeepers will do well to
take advantage of. These canned goods
are from the best factories, with brands
of recognized excellence, and have been
purchased expressly for this sale.
Everybody is invited to leave their or
ders early, not because the supply is
limited, but to guard against delay on
account of overcrowding. There will be
enough of everything offered, so that the
last customer will be served as well as
the first but it is well to get in the or
ders as early as is convenient.

CHand by Hi JoIr.
A well known and influential German
democrat expressed some solid views of
the present political situation in Rock
Island this morning and expressed them
emphatically when he said: "I tell you
I have had all that I want of this catch-,
youaj Bcneme 01 tne repuDlicms- 1 am
opposed to Joe Haas for city attorney.
tnough he be of my own material. Bis
manner of conducting the campaign last
tail disgusted me thoroughly. Haas
and also Eoehler have been going out
among the German democrats and saying
that they were republicans only in namr,
but were more in accord with the demo
cratlc party as to principle. When I
heard Haas publicly declare himself as a
republican in Thursday night's conven
tion I could not belo but think of "Old
Guard's" letter which he of course en
dorsed and which said the democratic
party wsb composed of copperheads - acd
saloon keepers." Now wh la I resent all
such assertions, I am equally opposed to
the plan of the mayor in making such
representations in one community and
then going to the saloon keepers them
selves and importuning them to vote for
him on tbe ground that he has befriended
them I dislike this sort of political hy
pocrisy and I will not sustain anyone who
upholds it. be he German, Irish, Ameri
can or Norweigan."
' I am a democrat, because I believe the
party more nearly represents the interests
of the Germans. The great mass of the
German people of Iowa and of our stale
think so, and particularly aie they war
ranted in such belief by the present fight
being made by the party in Chicago in
behalf of personal liberty. Mr. Ohl
weiler I say. tberefore, will get the Ger
man vote solid; not because he is a Ger
man, but because he is ( democrat and
is opposed to the policy of recognizing
Germans who are republicans for office
only, who under the mere pretence of
being republicans class all democrats as
saloon keepers and copperheads. The
Germans are not so easily hoodwinked."
Haao Was a Fallsr.
The Union extols Joe L- Baas as a
model city attorney, whereas as a matter
of fact he has been as big a failure as a
city attorney as could be. To be sure he
has been obliging and ha? no doubt done
tbe best in his power, as it has been his
good fortune to be attorney during most
of our special assessment improvements
where there was a good deal of work to
be done by the attorney, though it re
quired no particular tact or ability as
Mr. Haas has himself confessed he has
merely been the tool of the mayor, any
way. In tbe matter of suits against tie
city bis administration has been one con
tinuous series of blunders. Tbe Dies
case, the fact that in the Blakemore suit
which Mr. Haas' predecessor Mr. McEoiry
held the damage down to $1 and on the
trial with Haas on the defense $1,000 was
the verdict are illustrations of this fact.
Tbe Union claims thtt there were $35,-
000 in damage suits against the city when
Haas went into office, which has been
scaled down to $4,000. As one suit for
$10,000 was withdrawn by W. A. Meese
it does not leave a great amount to Haas'
credit. In fact he has won but one suit
the Lindquist case since going into
office. As stated before Mr. Haas has
made a very willing and accommodating
city attorney, but that ia all.
Aa latsartaat Coaveatlos.
Judge Murphy, of Davenport, was in
the city this morning and called at The
Argus office to exhibit a call for a con
vention at Kansas City next Tuesday,
April 14, to be known as the Western
State Commercial congress, which is to
last a week and which is to discuss the
needs of the west, among other things
the transportation and improvment of wa
ter ways, and the various interests of the
Mississippi valley. It is important that
Rock Island should have at least three
delegates at that convention. Daven
port will be represented and it behooves
our Improvement association to take ac
tion with reference to the matter.
Secretary 8earle has called a meeting
of the Improvement association at 7
o'clock tomorrow evening.

The Detroit Sleep Fastlna; Match.
Detroit, Mich., April ft Wonderland's
turnstiles clicked 10,000 times yesterday
for as many persons anxious to see the
light between sleep and the two men,
Townsend and Cuuningham. who havj
successfully battled with it for over six
days. Townsend dared not rest a mo
ment from Lis wild pace up and down
and Cunningham seemed like a man in a
dream. It in likely that they will stay to
1 o'clock this afternoon, when the race
is over. A bag containing 500 in gold
was hung up in plain sight of the men
yesterday, to give them courage.
A Drastic Railway Bill Beaten.
ST. Paul, Minn., April 6. In the house
Saturday morning a vigorous effort was
made to reconsider, amend and pass the
Currier railroad bill, which bad been de
feated Friday, but it failed. The obiec-
tionable feature in the bill is that making
tne terminal ana commodity tariff con
form to the distance tariff, and as thia
was insisted on by the friends of the bill
the motion to recousider was defeated.
This disposes of extreme railroad legisla
tion in this legislature, other pendine
bills being much more acceptable to the
War Against Non. Sectarian Schools.
QUEBEC, April n. Cardinal Tacherean
and tbe entire Roman Catholic hierarchy
have entered upon a war against tbe Man
itoba school act, and in all their churches
yesterday a joint mandement signed by
them was read, after which in the Basil
ica Cardinal Tacherean preached strongly
in its support, urging tbe faithful to de
clare against the act, and demand its di
avowal at Ottawa, The act in question
prohibits religious instruction in public
schools in Manitoba, making them all
non-sectarian, as in tbe United States.
The Rhode Island Election.
Providence, R. L, April 6 The Rhode
Island election resulted in giving Davis,
Democrat, 1,254 votes more than Ladd,
Republican, but 960 votes too few to elect.
The legislature ' stands Republicans, 56
Democrats, 36; Independent, 1. Twenty
five members are yet to be chosen, so that
if the Republicans fail to elect a single
one, they will still have a majority on
joint ballot of four.
Edmonds' Senatorial Ambition.
Washington CiTr, April 1 Senator
Edmunds yesterday celebrated ! tbe
twenty-fifth anniversary of his appoint
ment to the senate. Mr. Edmunds has no
intention of resigning bis seat, it being
hie ambition to eclipse the record made
by Thomas H. Benton, of Missouri, who
was a senator for thirty years and six
months, continuous service.
