The members of the different camps cf
Woodmen of the city met at the Armory
building last evening at 7 o'clock where
they were joined by a large number from
Moline and the camps in surrounding
towns, and from there mrched to the
Harper house and escorted the
visiting directors to Harper's theatre.
There were about 200 men in line
and made a very creditable appearance.
The programme at the theatre was
opened with Borne enlivening music by the
band, after which Mayor William McCon
ochie was introduced and after bidding
the visiting Woodmen a hearty welcome
to the city he spoke of the innumerable
benefits that reverted to members of the
order and paid a glowing tribute to it as
an alliance that bound men together in
the bonds of trae brotherly love. After
this he went into the history of secret
organizations and outlined it to the pres'
ent day. During the course of his re
marks he took occasion to Bay that these
societies had fought their Way step by
step despite the "harmless frowns of
some of the churches and the mouthings
of a few long haired men and short haired
women and cranks," and followed this by
saying that they tad done more to elevate
the human race than all other agencies
combined, and then gave expression to
"It has always been the policy of both
churcn and state to combine in an unholy
alliance as a matter of self-protection,
and during the dark ages it was the policy
of the church to stamp out all the intelli
gence in the world except what was in
their own narrow fold. And I am sorry
to say, but it is a fact nevertheless, and
the history of the world will prove the
truth of my assertion, that Christianity and
tyranny have always marched hand in hand
down through all the bges in all their
efforts to suppress the spreading of uni
versal liberty and free thought and have
always combined to crush every effort of
the people to disenthrall themselves from
the gtilling yoke of a corrupt ar.d licen
tious court aided and abetted by
a rotten religious hierarchy in rob
bing and plundering the people under
the sanction of a law called the
"divine right of kings" the churches
always ccming to their assistance, throw
ing thi-ir powerful influence into the bal
ance against the rights and liberties of
the people, and using the deceptive
weapons of superstition and bigotry to
accomplish tneir purposes.
Is it any wonder then nnd r such cir
cumstances tnat tnc people would rse in
their mi;bt and destroy both church and
state, reversing the established customs
of centuries when demagogues, backed
by a down trodden rice, vaulting sud
deniy into power, frenzied with madness
at their pevious wrongs, mistaking li
cence for liberty, cutting the heads eff
their kings and rulers and drenching the
eartn with tbe blood or tneir prelates and
spiritual advisers, abolishing all law, de
throning the Christian church and in
mockery setting up a goddess of reason
with its demoralizing effects, and as a
natural consequence bringing on a reign
of terror with its mad whirling giddy
dance of death, forming the bloodiest
drama in tbe history in the world.
Thank Qm, a brighter day has dawned
Both church and state have learned tbe
bitter lessons of experience from the his
tory of tbe past. They no longer frown
on any lawful combination organized for
mutual protection and moral development
and the day is not far distant when every
church will recognize in them their
etaunchest allies in tbe cause of human
ity. I think tbe time has come for the
church and these organizations to unite
their forces in a warfare against the
greatest monster of the age, the enemy
of the human race, training all their guns
on tbe ramparts of King Alcohol and
make it one of the fundamental princi
pies of our creed to throw our great com
bined moral influence around our num
bers, restraining them in their excesses and
make it one of tbe inflexible rules of our
cfurch in order to admit no man to mi-m
bersbip who is in anv way connected
with tbe nefarious and vicious traf
fic." W. T. Haydecker was next introduced
and responded warmly to the address of
Mayor McConochie, in which he thanked
the citizens and Woodmen of Rock, Island
for the cordial welcome extended. He
then spoke of the wonderful growth of
the order throughout tbe great northwest
and of the strength it is constantly gain
ing. He mentioned the benefits to
be derived from secret organizations, cit
ing the successes of some of the greatest
bit ties which history records as instances
of th:s, after which he spoke briefly of
the advantages of this order over insur
ance companies and beneficiary associa
tions, giving figures to substantiate his
claims, during the oourse of which he
took occasion to give the "old line" in
surance companies a gracious let down
on accojnt of the amount of money col
lected each year and paid out to high
salaried officers or kept in reserve funds
In closing he pud a compliment to
the integrity and faithfulness of Head
Clerk C. W. Hawes.and as he termed him,
"your other little Rock Island hero, H.E.
Casteel," for tbe faithful discharge of
their duties. Bleuer's band then enter
tained the audience with some selections.
President William Jackson, of the Cil
izens' Improvement association was then
called. He began by speaking of the as
sociation and co-operation of men, say
ing that it ran parallel to every day life
and was of indescribable benefit
men. He said it helped to make better
beings of us all. and if these alone were
the only benefits to be deriyed it would j
be sufficient. Mr. Jacksan then spoke
britfly on the grand and nob'e objects of
orders of this kind, and closed with a trib
ute to the man who provided forhl fam
ily before his demise. His speech wi s
full of good thoughts and received hearty
City Attorney Joseph L. Haas was nex.
introduced, and briefly reviewed the woc-
cerous growth of the Modern Woodmen
of America, after which he called the at
tention of the neighbors to the trials
through which the order had passed and
of Us having risen Ptceoix like from its
own ashes, until today it shines out a
beacon light to the world. He then con
gratulated the order on its success, and in
closing wished it ever enduring success
and prosperity. Miss Liphardt. of Hills
dale, then favored the' audience with a
charmingly rendered piano sole.
A. R Talbot, of Lincoln, Neb., one of
the directors, was then introduced and in
a few brief remarks he spoke ef the state
he represented and the magic growth of
the order saying that it was developing
with the growth of the ideas of our ad
vanced civilization, and in so doing re
lated a touching anecdote illustrating tie
spirit of fraternity of this enlightened
age. His remarks were somewhat bri. f,
but yery interesting. Emil Jacobsoa
rendered a vocal solo which reraivri
much merited applause and respondeJ
with another pleasing selection.
Head Clerk C. W. Hawes was
called upon and spoke briefly of bis hav
ing been born and raked in the city, and
after speaking affectionately of his gray
haired sire, David HaweB. who sat before
him in the audience, he gave some
reminiscences of his vouncer davs in
Rock Island, acd expressed his pride and
gladness at having occasion to meet so
many of his old friends. He then related
the recent changes that had taken place
in the order and gave Rock Island coun
ty its lull share of credit due from its
efforts in bringing about this much
Oliver Olson was next introduced and
spoke and glowing terms of tbe benefits
that would be derived from becoming a
member of a society of this kind, and in
this connection he took occasion to pay a
compliment to our worthy townsman, C.
W. Hawes, the head clerk of the order,
after which he closed by bidding the v.s
iters a hearty welcome and extended to
them the warmest of friendlv feelinsr
from tbe cit.jcs of Rock Island. A
well ex. cuted piano duet bv the Jlissss
Liphardt and Ringe came next.
Rev. C. E. Taylor, spoke briifly
on the aims acd objects of the order, ar.d
called bis hearers' attention to the sacred
precincts of the home, and
spoke of the duties of every
man to provide for bis family while he
has hi health. He then mentioned the
enormous salaries paid out by insurance
organizations and commended the order of
the Modern Woodmen to all men who
wish to secure f heap insurance and at the
same time ei joy the advantages ot broth
Hon. J. W. White, of Tampico, 111.,
