The following resolution was adopted by the

be it resolved. That it is this sense of this Com
mittee, that the Australian Ballot law applies to
the election of officers at the annual town n eet
ingtoall elections exctptas specially excepted

Thk annourcement that the Standard
Oil Trust had dissolved of i 8 own will
till comes in the belated press.. The fact
that it was immediately reorganized with
a new name and on a plan more satisfac
tory to the larger holders of iis certificates
follows very haltingly in the journalistic
The statement that Presi.ent Harrison
will accept a renomination if unanimous
lj tendered bears evidence of genuine
ness' so unimpeachable as to disarm doubt.
The current statement that be Is not seek'
ing a renomination is at once subject to
denial.- If not tendered unanimously
there is every reason to believe the nomi
nation will be vigorously scuffed for, and
a prominent official, said to be in the
president's confidence, practically so as
serts when he says the story that contrary
reports .are without foundation. The
president seems to want it known that
he is a hustler.

There are seven memorial days
which mark the principal events in the
history of the coming of tbe Savior. Tbe
first is Advent, which begins tbe chris
tian year-, and reminds us of Christ's
birth, or His coming into this world
Christmas, in memory of Christ's birth
day, i Epiphany, applied to the festival
observed in' commemoration of the
Lord's manifestation; to the wise
men of the east, the representatives
f the Gentile wcild. Lent, so called
from .the old English Lenten or spring,
observed in' the springtide of ' the year as
a season of speC'al meditation on Christ
in His humiliation. Easter, on which
ChrUtA triumphal rising from: the grave
is commemorated. Ascension, 40 days
after EisVer, in memory of Christ's as
cension into heaven, and Pentacost or
Whitsunday, the spiritual birthday of tbe
Of all these, Easter is the most gener
ally observed". The custom of " Easter
cervices is not confined to any creed, sect
or branch, but all churches observe it to
a greater or less degree. No church is
so poor and obscure but it can hang up
some foliage, place a pot of flowers on
the pulpit and " sing ap propriate music
Eister in Rock Island is one of the "big''
days of the year. Every church observes it
and the services grow . more- elaborate
each year. Rock Island will bear witness
to tbis fact tomorrow.
JlrKiilo'" Tariff an thV Work
