any of our citizens, whether for political
or other reasons, through the representa
tions of such an irresponsible individual
as this man Beaumont, who is without
standing in his own home or anywhere
A striking illustration of the genus
political bum is W. F. Beaumont. He
claims Monmouth, the beautiful capital
city of Warren countyj as his abiding
place, but occasionally be makes little
incursions into neighboring cities, where
be attempts to palm himself oS as a
statesman of no mean rack. People who
have ever met h m, and tnere are many
who have had thit unpleasant experience,
never eive Mr. I eaumont an opportunity
to renew the foricd acquaintance, if they
see him first. Ilutalat! Mr. Beaumont
has a keen eye and it is difficult to get
toe drop oifhim.
In August, 18 )0, when the Rock Island
county delegates went to Monmouth with
the avowed intention of nominating Ben
T. Cable for c meress, they were ad -dressed
at very frequent intervals by a
person with a glib tongue and a very,
very strong breath. In the open air said
breath would loe its strength in mingling
with the circumambient atmosphere, but
at close quarters indoors it had a blight
ing effect upon tverybody and everything
it came in contact with. Inquiry reveal
ed the fact that the sadly ttilicted indi
vidual was W. F. Beaumont. To the
Cable men Mr. Beaumont was a warm
supporter of the gentleman from Rock
Island, but he would change front when
be met a Xeice advocate. In other
words Mr. Beuu nont exercised great dip
lomacy in Liu language, and it took a per
son of great discernment to Cid upon
which side of the political fence Mr.
Beaumout stood. lie was in the con
vention hall, of course, and watched the
proceedings wit a considerable interest.
Whtn the climax came and Mr. Cable
was nominated n the 10th ballot, the
Rock Island delegates discovered it was
only a few minutes to tr&in time, and
tbev hurried to the depot as quickly as
The sudden departure of the victors
from the field of battle was a bitter blow
for Mr. Beaumont. He had been smack
ing his lips in t.n'.icipa'.ion of drinking
1 ,ng and often :o the success of the can
didate. But h)w ruthlessly were his
hopes dispelled' lie was sad and a woe
begone expression settled over his erst
while radiant face he hadn't tasted his
favorite beverage for a whole hour.
Something must be done and that
quickly," reasoned the forlorn Beaumont,
and buttoning hiB Prince Albert coat
tightly around his Appollo form, he
turned his head.ight toward Rock Island.
It was a night t f terror for the rodentia
along the C., B. fc Q. track between here
and Monmouth. The dawn of day found
Beaumont in Rock Island. He was
thirsty, very, hungry and sore of foot,
but bis adaman .ine cheek was still intact.
From hiB yest pocket he extracted a list
of the delegates to the congressional con
vention, and proceeded to pay them his
compliments m turn. It took him a
couple of day 8 to make the rounds, and
finally some kind hearted soul bought him
a ticket for Monmouth, admonishing him
never to return.
But alas and alack! he is here again.
He still thirsts; his breath is still less
fragrant than the rose, and he is as much
of a nuisance as ever. But, sorry tore
late, the former love and veneration for
Mr. Cable, so prominently displayed by
the Monmouth freak, has turned appar
ently to an undying hatred. His mission
to Rock Island at this time is for revenge!
How to wreai the most direful conse
quences to Mr. Cable was the thought
most uppermost in his mind. A happy
idea penetrated bis muddied brain.
The aid of the political enemies of Mr.
Cable should be invoked. He drifted
into the postoice and threw bis arms
rrW.tinn&tf-lv around Boss "Wells as
though he was b long lost brother. When
his mission was disclosed Wells hugged
him in return.
M fripnd " said Wells, "you are a
much abused it.dividual. If I were you
I would exD06- this man Cable, he has
treated you shamefully.'
"Vm T w 11 be aveneed, but how to
do it. that is tha question."
TThir rnme with me to the Union
office, I will arrange that," said Wells.
They went, and found the Union as
gullible as usual. The heading of the
article reads: "Gratitude How Beau
mont of Monmouth, compassed Congress
man Cables n jmination and how the
ervice was repaid." Then follows a lot
of slush to the fleet that Beaumont had
secured Mr. Cable's nomination
terwards come to Rock Island
nesa was dull st Monmouth, in the hope
at securine employment through air
here: how Mr. Cable
vouit O tuuuw..
had snubbed h m, and finally how Beau
mnnt had sled in the Armory and hac
stolen a tomato from in front of May's
eTorerv to ease his gnawing Yitals.
Beaumont's utatement and the Union's
article are ooth intensely amnsing, to say
th least, but it is nevertheless passing
trangethata professed reputable jour-
Complaint has been made by a number
of Rock Island people who attended the
theatre at Davenport Wednesday night of
the lack of accommodation by the Daven
port & Rock Island Street Railway com
pany. Tney state they paid double fare
over the bridge to be dumped at the rail
way tracks at the foot of Twenty-fourth
street, while the car proceeded back to
Davenport. It is a fact since the erec
tion of the viaduct was commenced the
railway company has been obliged to
transfer its passengers at the foot of
Twenty-fourth street, and it may have
heen regarded as not worth while to hold
an electric car there to meet the late car
from DaveDport. Under such circum
stances the late Elm street horse car
might be sent ud to meet fhe Davenport
car, or some similar arrangement made,
as there no doubt will be in the future.
Th blame for the oversight is probably
chargeable to one of the undersuperinten-
dents at the Davenport side who operate?

the curiosities the syndicate got when it
parchased the Davenport Central line and
in keeping with the poMcy of that road
