Tbe regular quarterly conference of
the First M. B. church was held last
evening. Presiding Elder M. A.. Head of
ibe Rock Island district ii tbe chair,
the following resolutions ere presented
and adopted unanimously:
Whereas. Brother Oue has served as
pastor with great acceptability for the
last four years, during whici time he pro
jected and pushed to completion our new
church, of which we are ail proud and
bos by his unceasing- pastoral work and
effectual labors as a true and faithful
minister of Christ, added to our member
ship so that we are now nesr 500 strong.
Whereas, No new minister who
could be sent to us, could take up the
work of our charge at its present stage
and carry it on for the coming year with
tbe hope of tbe same success that Brother
Wherbas, There rem tins yet one
year to complete bis full five year term
with us. therefore be it
Resolved, That it is the unanimous
wisb and desire of the First Methodist
church of Rock Island that Brother Gue
be returned to us for ano her year and
that we request our Presidi ig Elder. Rev.
M. A. Head, to represent tais for us to
the presiding bishop of the annual con
ference to be held at Molice on tbe 9;h
of September nest, and tbat he use all
proper efforts to accomplish this purpose.
Resolutions were also adopted endors
ing the action of tbe ladies of the church
in inviting the Northwestern branch of
the Woman's Foreign Missionary society
to be held here in September, 1S92. This
society met at Indianapolis last year and
there were 500 delegates, present. A
stenuous effort will be mad i by the cburch
to have the society meet in Rock Island
a year hence.
The conference further passed resolu
tions commending the work of the ladies
cf the church in releasing the obligation
of f 3.000 on the new edifice of the de
nomination in this city.

lug. Aug. 2.. indications give promise

TERMANEXT CAMP GROUSDS.
Anent this last announcement it may
be of interest to say that there is every
likelihood of this encamp cent being the
last one held at the present camp grounds.
Rev. M. A. Head has had in mind for
soa.e time tbe establishment of a camp
ground on VandruH's island, tbe idea
being to make it non-sectarian and to lay
the grounds out into villages for the
various denominations, tbe tents of each
religious society being of different colors
in accordance with a pi in similar to
tbat observed at Lake Geneva.
Mr. Head has talked with Mana
ger Louderback, of the Rxk Island &
Milan street railway company, on the
subject, and that gentleman has not only
offered to provide all the Mreet car facil
ities desirable in trackage nnd cars hut
to make a cash donation cf f 500 toward
erecting the main buildings. There is no
better site in the country for Chautan -qua
society grounds than VandrufTs isl
and, and it is to be hoped the plans under
consideration will be attended by success
of lag warraata Praerea-
r Bexna la the Circuit Caart.
A suit in quo warranto has been filed
in tbe circuit court entitled "The people
of Illinois vs. Conrad Elelman, et al."
The proceedings are merely a further de
velopment of the unpleasantness in tbe
Zion German Lutheran church of Hampton
bluff and the use of the state name is a
fiction in law that is made necessary in
quo warranto proceedings. It is virtu
ally the regularly elected trustees of the
cburch bringing suit against tbe men
who were afterward elected trustees, as
the complainants claim illegally, and is
to require tbe latter to sow cause why
they are holding the offise of trustees
aud discharging the functions thereof.
Some months ago the pastor of Zion
church at Hampton, Rev. B. Win ter at
tempted to ex pel certain leading members
because they belonged to tbe Farmers'
Mutual Benefit association. Tbe result
was a split. Tbe excummunicated mem
bers would not be excummunicated. The
church, it seems, had never yet been in
corporated according to the statute. So
the faction sympathizing with the F. M.
B. A: members held a regularly called
meeting and formed such a corporation,
electing a set of trustees. The Winter
faction subsequently held a meeling of
their own, and went through tbe motions
of forming a corporation and electing
trustees. The first elected trustees em
ployed Attorneys Carl Kuehl, of Moline,
Charles Dunham, of Geneseo, and J. T.
Kenwortby. of Rock Island, to lock after
their case, and the result is the beginning
of these proceedings.
The complainants claim the Winter
trustees were cot legally elected because
tbe meeting as not regularly called, and
tbat furthermore the election took place
on Sunday, and the law does not recog
nize any business done on that day
authorizing administrator to compromise
claim against C, R. I. & P. Ry Co.

Joslis, July 23. Mis3 Birdie Oiborne
is spending her vacation with friends and
relations at her old home near Joslin.
Ia the day time the weather is warm
and pleasant, but tbe nights have been
too cold for corn."
The steam thresher is again abroad in
tbe land, and is moviog from farm to
farm like a living thing.
Is it not a scandalous shame that f arm
ers wheD they shou'.d be taking care of
their crops are compelled to serve on
juries in cities to try gamh ersT
On Sunday last there was a picnic and
Sunday school convention at Cleveland,
Henry county. Quite a number went
from this side of Rock river. Mr. Hun
toon, of Moline, gave a temperance ad
dress. Oar creamery at Joslin is approaching
completion? The work has been delayed
on account of some of the men imbibing
too freely of alcohol: Mr. Little contem
plates making use of his steam engine for
tbe purpose of grinding feed for the farm
ers, which will be a great convenience.
"Corn is king." Tilling of the soil is not
only the oldest occupation, but it is the
most important and neccessary occupa
tion of man. Tbe success of most all
legitimate business enterprises hangs up
on the prosperity and success of agricul
ture. Business men know this by in
stinct, and feel it in their bones, which
frequently calls forth the question, "How
are the crops?'' Whea we rob agricul1.
ture for the protection and benefit of any
other business, we are simply "killing the
goose to get the golden egg," and the
present condition of farmers shows that
they cannot withstand this treatment for
ever. Bat tben under our form of gov
ernment, this condition of things is sims
ply self-inflicted punishment by the far
mers upon themselves. They hae voted
themselves into their present condition.
by yoting against their own interests, and
they will bave to vote themselves out of
it. Farmers have no right to call upon the
goverumcnt to make their business more
remunerative by enabling them to fix a
higher price upon their products. The
law of supply and demand should be the
great regulator of prices the world over,
and it should be a hanging efftmse to in
terfere with tnis arrangement, cot only
upon what farmers have to sll, but like
wise upon what they have to purchase,
and we dare any person to show that
this would be unjust and unreasonable.

Deafness Cant b Cured
by local applications, a they cannot
reach the diceased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constituti nl remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous lining of tbe Eustach
ian tube. When this tuD ) gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless tha im
fiammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an i iflamed condii
tion of the mucous surface.
We will give 100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catanb) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure
