Conclusion of Yesterday's Prohibi
Thr t emort Med il Content And the
Addr Md.tn the Evening.
Tbe county prohibition convention has
concluded its session and adjourned.
The Demorest medal contest took place
at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon there
being eight contestants. The names an d
subjects being' as follows: "Responsi
bility of the Liquor Traffic," Clarence
Spalding, Rock Island; "Prohibition the
Hope of Oar Country," Lester Minor, of
Milan; "The New Declaration of Inde
pendence," Hester Berglund, of Molice;
"Young America War Cry," Fred Green,
of Coal Valley; "The English Sparrow,"
Willie Eeel.of Milan; "Who is to Blame V'
Waller Rogers, of Port Byron: "A Bar
ren of Whiskey." Alice Reed, of Port
Byron, "Young America's War Cry,"
Will Bennett, Moline.
The contest was a close one, each
showing marked ability, and the judges
found it a hard matter to decide where
the lot should fall, but Clarence Spaulds
ing, of this citj, was finally selected as
the one who should carry off the honors
of the day, and accordingly ex Gov.
Jotn P. St. John, of Kansas, in a short
speech, presented the medal to the young
man, reminding him that in after years
he would look back upon that day as one
of the happiest events or his life. Ad
journment was then taken until the eve
ning at 8 o'clock.
Last evening Harper's theatre contain-,
ed an audience of fair numbers to hear
exGovernor John P. St. John, of Kan
sas. H. L. Bullen. of Moline, presided,
and there were also on the stage, Rev.
H. C. Marshall, Rev. C E. Taylor and
L.4C. Daueherty and Mrs. Mary Metz
gar. Tbe exercises opened with the sieg
ing of "America" to piano accompani
ment, Mr. Dougherty leading.
The speaker oftheevening.Gov. St.
John, was introduced by Mr. Bullen, and
he waded at once into his subject, the
l'quor question, without preliminaries.
Away back in the '50's, he said, there
was on the statute boots of Illinois a
law which imposed penalties to the ex
tent of two years' imprisonment and
000 fine for extending kindness or show
ing humanity to a colored man, so great
was the opposition in this state to.the col
ored man, to say nothing of the hostility
to the abolition of' slivery
lo rive a colored man food or
clothing was a crime in this state punish
able under tbe law. The speaker knew
this to be a fait because be had been
tried for favoring a colored man as late
as 162 in this state, but he believed it to
be a case of God's law against man's and
be had obeyed God's law. Yet he sid
tbe license liquor laws on the statute
books of Illinois today which permitted
the existence of 13.131 retail liquor estab
lishments are 10 times more heathenish.
more deciding and more damnable than
the blatR laws of Illinois ever were. Tbe
legalized liquor traffic of Illinois, he held,
rjbs tne scsts of the state of bread
clothins and -Le!ter, the state of its man'
hood, robs tbe home of peace, prosperity
and happiness and robs the victim of all
hope of immortality. He claimed that
all crime was traceable to the liquor
traffic and asserted that be stood at thst
moment in a hot bed of licensed s'.averj
He spoke of bo;btne oil parties as siioon
uartits. which had licensed and coun
tenanced a number of liquor establish
ments which if put in a line would form
a street 8i) miles long, which he termed a
legalized street of hell.
He switched around from state to na
tional politics, cutting right and left into
both the democratic and republican par
ties, asserting that tbe Fourth of July
spread eagle declaration that this was a
government of the people, for the people
and by tbe people was false, that the
great trouble was people let others do tbtir
thinking, and accepted the words and
thoughts of others without thinking for
themselves. He touched upon the sub
ject of women's suffrage, and held that
tbe prevailing jmpression in the republi
can party seemed to be that women were
not people, but were only fit to darn
socks, wash dishes and keep up tbe
churches. He thanked the Lord that he
belonged to a party which placed women
on an equality with man, through tbe
medium of the ballot box . Returning again
to the liquor question he ventured tbe
prediction that 25 years bence would find
all the saloons blotted out of existence,
when we shall be more ashamed of our
present laws than we ever were
of. slavery. The will of tbe people
lie said is alone responsible for
such laws, all of which orjginate
in the ballot. There is the strength of
the law, and the man who votes for either
of the old parties votes for licensing tbe
liquor traffic and is no better than the
saloon keeper. The wblsky voter makes
the whisky party which makes the
whisky law for tbe whisky saloon.
Mr. St. John spoke modestly of his own
record as a Union soldier and alluded
to himself as one of those soldiers who
votes as he shot that is for home and
country. He accused the government of
being in partnership with tbe liquor traf-
1c as demonstrated by tbe internal reven
ue laws. He exhibit-d a copy of a
pamphlet entitled, "Malt and Beer in
Spanish Aintrica," and held that it was
issued by Secretary of State Blaine to pro
mote tbe beer and malt trade in Spanish
America. He said be had written for a
number of copies of this pamphlet but
had received answer from Mr, Blaine that
the edition was exiusted. He had de
sired them for distribution among the
pastors of his town, and could not get
ibem, yet a little old Irishman
claiming to represent New York saloons
and a German pretending to be a Chicago
brewer had no trouble in getting all they
He held the secretary of state up to
scorn as a self-convicted liar and exhib
ited his signature to substantiate tbe
charge. He spoke of the Divenport sa
loon keepers as as much rebels against tbe
stale of Iowa as were the men who fired
on Ft. Sumpter, against the nation. He
denounced the wine car in President
Harrison's recent special train, and sar
castically alluded to Vice-President
Morton's saloon or buffet in his new
hotel in Washington. He paid his
respects in his own way to both the old
parties, but dii not offvr anything partic
ularly new in support of his own.
The Pilots Kooxt.
One of the coolest places during the
hot afternoons that it has yet been tbe
good luck by one of The Argus scribes
to find on his daily round is the rapids
pilots' office near the Seventeenth street
landing. There the genial rapids pilots,
Messrs. Wash Height, Doss. Holsapple,
Andy Coleman and Zic Suiter, who com
pose the "pilots' pool," spend their
spare time waiting for the many rafters
which these gentlemen have so often
guided safely over the rapids.
The interior of the office is tastily fur
nished in such a manner as makes it a
very pleasant place to whi!e away their
leisure hours, and here the visitor can
hear described the remarkable perform
ances of some of tbe old time boats on
tbe Mississippi. The outsiJe of the office
is decorated ith two large signs which
read, "Rapids' Pilots' Office." designat
ing to the captains of passing steamers
that here a skillful navigator of the rap
ids can always be found. There .are
few places that tbe scribe takes mote
pleasure in visiting than tbe temporary
abode of the above mentioned genial
Fine Ite-itleore Lot at Ant-lion.
The netice of the public is cal.ed to
the advertisment of tbe Schnell syndicate
on lbs fourth page where can be s:en a
plat of their addition. These lots, as will
be seen by tbe plat, lay between S venth
