VALUABLE LAW LIBRARY.
That of the Late J adze Grant to Re.
mala at Davenport or Interest to
Rack I. land Banisters.
A meeting of the Scott county bar was
held yesttrday afternoon at the court
house, at Davenport, to consider the pur
chane of the great law library of the late
Judge Grant. The committee appointed
at the meeting of Oct. 10 last to organize
and Incorporate a library association, re
ported the woik done. One hundred and
fourteen shares of $50 each had been
subscribed for by the lawyers of Daven
port and a few outside friends who had
manifested an interest in the project, and
19 shares had been placed in Rock Island.
This made a total of $6,500 that could be
considered as raised, exclusive of a sub
scription of at least $500 and possibly
more, promised by Judge Dillon. No
subscriptions had been solicited from the
business men of the city, but the com
mittee felt that it had received all the
he'p from the legal fraternity that could
The Democrat sas:
There was but one voice at the meeting
the lawyers wished to see that library
remain in Davenport. It is the center to
which all the lawyers of this city and sur
rounding country gravitates when look,
ing np law and precedents on an Import
ant case. It has been a Davenport insti
tution for two tcoie years. The lawyers
have depended upon it largely and have
neglected to stock their private libraries.
If the collection ef books is removed
from here their will be no good library
nearer than Des Moines. The discussion
deyeloped the opinisn that the legal fra
ternity of Rock Island and Moline had
not shown a very lively interest in the
matter, judging from their subscriptions,
but it was determined not to urge the
matter npen them nor to go outside the
ranks of the interested persons for fnnds.
Several of the attorneys expressed a wil
lingness to increase their subscriptions
rather than to allow the library to leave
the city, and the paper wss pasped around
and the subscriptions secured in 10 min
utes, more or less, incressjd the amount
pledged to 9,150. Another $1,000 will
be needed for bringing the collection up
to date, for the purchase of cases etc.,
but no trouble is anticipated in securing
this s:.rn. Oa motion of Mayor Ficke,
heartily seconded by several others, the
committee was aulhurizxi to take further
subscriptions from members of the bar
not present and buy the library. It is
understood that it can be purchased for
The plan for an association that met
with eeneral approval at the October
meeting involved the purchase of the
library and 'he assurance of tickets to
lawyers at $ 33 per annum. It was esti
mated that at least 40 of these tickets
could be disposed of in the three cities
and surrounding towns, thus assuring the
association an income of $1,440 annually.
This might be increased somewhat by a
charge of a nominal fee of non-ticket
holders for each time the library was
used by them. The income would allow
400 annually to keep the library up to
date, and after the payment of an annual
dividend upon the capital stock of 5 per
cent would leave $32J for the reserve
How to Vote Tomorrow.
Walk irto the polling place and give
your namd, and residence if'required. If
you are entitled to vote, a ticket will be
handed you by one of the election judges.
Retire at once to the voting booth and
there mark your ticket. If yeu want to
the straight democratic ticket all you have
to do is to make a cross (X) in the circle
to the left anl opposite the word demo
cratic. Make no other mark on the
ticket, but fold it so that the signature on
the back will show and then leave the
booth and hand it to the judge. If you
want to scratch your ticket you must be
very careful or your ticket will be thrown
out. Say for instance that yoa want to
vote for all the democratic candidates ex ¬
cept one. In order to scratch him and vote
for his opponent, you make a cross in
the circle at the head of the democratic
ticket, just as if ycu were going to vote
straight, then make a cross in the square
opposite and to the left of the name of
the republican candidate you wish to
vote fcr. Make no other marks on the
ticket. If you want to vote for several
of the republican candidates the process
is the same. Make a cross in the circle
at the head of the democratic ticket, and
put crosses in the rquares opposite the
names of the republican candidates you
desire to vote for.
Note also this exception If there are
two or more persons to be elected to the
same position, as in members of the
county board, this plan of scratching will
not do. In such cases you must begin at
the top of the ticket and put a cross in
the square opposite tho name of each
person you wish to vote for. The safest
way is to vote the democratic ticket
