It will be remembered that it was not
long ago that the lumbermen were com
plaining because the drives were not
coming. It they complain at all now it
U because the booms may not be strong
enough to hold the Iocs.
At the Iowa Episcopal diocesan con
vention at Davenport an effort was made
to establish an additional diocese with
headquarters at Des Moines. The meas
ure was opposed on account of expenses.
and goes over for another year. Illinois
has three dioceses, those of Chicago,
Quincy and Springfield. The latter dic
ceae has iuet chosen an assistant to
Bishop Seymour in the person of Dean
Bale of Davenport cathedral.
The report that the Rock Islander
would come oat last week as a republican
paper, seems to have been substantially
correct, although no official announces
mentis made to that effect. In a column
article, however, it renounces the princi
ples of the people's party as enunciated
in the national platform lately adopted at
St. Louis . The leaders of the labor party
are termed "disappointed office seekers,"
and in conclusion the paper commits it
self to the support of Gov. Fifer's candi
dacy. It is now in order for the Rock
Islauder to haul down its antiquated
heading as the champion of the laboring
and industrial classes and proclaim its
allegiance to McEinley ism and protected
stake, like money or property, it might
be excusable to give room for preferences
and to trust one who violated a pledge a
sect nd time. But the school question
conc erns all christian parents, the chris
tian church, and is a cause of conscience
and our God.
Tor the sake of our conscience and to
assert our principles on ths school ques
tion, we must cast our votes solidly for
the democratic party and the'r candidates,
becaisesaid party, with iegard to the
school issue, contends for sound princi
ples tnd offers, with respect to the past
as wt U as to the future, the best guaranty
for the maintenance of said principles."

Tne Stampede to Altgeld.
Much and desperate as may be the aim
of the republicans to conceal the fact, the
German Lutherans have gone to Altgeld.
The Chicago Daily News, independent,
views the attitude of the Lutherans as
ancealable. It its issue of Thursday last
The revolt against the republican state
ticket is more general than had been sun
posed. In Chicago only a corporal's
guard oi republicans stand by the party
ticket, ine stampede first announced in
the columns of the News-Record has
came and swept everything before it
Aiast evening delegates representing
an or ine uerman .Lutheran churches in
Cook coun'y met at Apollo hall in the
Central Music hall building to pass upon
the report of the school committee. This
report said: "We must cast our votes
solidly for the democratic party and its
candidates." Fifty churches were repre
sented and more than 250 delegates sat in
tne meeting. The report passed with
but four dissenting voices, and the over
whelming vote was followed by loud and
continued cheering. It was an exciting
cession. ine lew wno were loyal to
Fifer made a gallant right; but their
voices were drowned in the clamorous in
dorsement of the democratic state ticket.
The meeting came about in this way:
When the Illinois district of the Missouri
synod of the German Lutheran church
met in unicago early tnis winter it was
decided that in order to secure the repeal
of the present compulsory education law
the German Lutherans should act as a
body with the party which would agree
in good faith to repeal the act and offer a
satisfactory guaranty to carry out the
promise. A school committee was ap
pointed to judge between the republican
and democratic parties and make a report
to tne churches. This committee offered
its report last evening to delegates repre
senting the Cook county delegations.
The substance of the report has already
been printed in the News Record. It will
be circulated among the 45,000 memb' rs
of the church in the state. Under ordin
ary circumstances over 80.000 German
Lutherans vote the republican ticket.
'inese are the figures or Henry W
The report arraigns the record of the
republican party, and says that Fifer two
years aeo assailed the German Lutherans
and that the nomination of Edwards at
that time was a declaration for the pres
ent law, that the republican senate failed
to properly amend the law and that the
party has nominated "Gov. Fifer, who
opposed us publicly, and Lieut. Gov.
Ray, who twice cast his deciding vote
againBt us." It is alleged that the new
promises made by the republicans are die
tated by fear rather than change of heart
The democrats are commended for their
platform declarations in 1890. for nomi
nating Raab for state superintendent in
low, lor favoring the adoption of amend
menu directed toward a removal of the
objectionable features, for demanding the
unconditional repeal of the law and for
nominating Judge Altgeld, who is called
the "champion of right principles."
The report concludes:
"In the face of facts above stated, the
question is forced upon us: Which par
ty deserves to be trusted for the sake of
our cause? Not the republican party,
after the experience we have had with it
Can we expect that it will honestly com
ply with its promise after we know that
it sees no wrong in violating a pledge T
It even declarea that it has nothing to re
eret, its broken promises notwithstand
ing. The.democratic party kept its word
Two years ago it championed our cause
and its present declarations are in full
harmony with its past honorable actions.
"The school committee, therefore, can
recommend but one line of action. If
there were any personal advantages at

truth concerning her illness and mar
velous re:overy by the aid of Hood's

said the eau e was ulcers in the stomach. At
this time mj mother said she wanted to make

but finding it. would comfort her, I began tak

subside, I se ?med to feel a little stronger, but
thought it on ly fancy. I was so weak I could
only take ten drops of Sarsaparllla at first.
In two week'i I was able to sit up a few min
