THE YOUNG DEMOCRACY.
Steps Taken Looking to the Forma
tion of a Local Club.

Chairman Wheelan called the meeting
to order and txplahed at length the pur
pose of the meeting. It was to adept
measures tending tiward the formatioa
or a young men s democratic club, the
object being social political advancement
and the inculcation and furtherance of
The meeting organized with the elec
tion of L. C. landing as temporary
chairman and B. D. Lament as secretary,
and after further c iscussion it was de
cided to adjourn uctil Thursday evening.
June 9, it being decided in the meantime
to enlist the membership of all young men
who are in sympathy with democratic
principles, or who may desire to affiliate
with the party.
That the organization when perfected
will enlist the membership and co-operation
of all intelligent, young democrats, it
is fair to presume. On the eve of a
great campaign on national and state
issues the party was never better equip
ped or attended by more hopeful pros
pects, than this year. On the presiden
tial ticket the party has only to place the
right man to win, while in Illinois it is a
conceded fact that Judge Altgeld will
bury Private Joe so deep that he will
never be heard of again. On the con
gressional ticket there are none who
claim any knowledge of political affairs
in th Eleventh distr ct who doubt that
Congressman Cable will be reelected
should he consent to a renomination
which will be tendered him by the unani
mous voice of the party. With such
glewirg prospects iihead of them it is
small wonder that the younger members
of the party should give expression this
early to their enthusiasm, loyalty and
determination to be In it with the rest of
them in the right that is before us.
The democratic patty has the intelli
gent and practical side of the issue in its
declaration for tariff reform. It is the
party of intelligence t.nd progress.and in
tellieent and progressive young men are
linking to its standarl. Hence the ac
tion of the oune democracy of Rock
Itiver It i plefH.
The staKe of water at Rock Island

Capt Lamont of the Diamond Jo line
is in receipt of a circular from General
Passenger Agent Bill announcing an ex
cursion rate to Dubuque on account of
the Masonic Grand Ledge of Iowa, June
6. 7 and 8, the fare Doing one fare for
the round trip.
The Diamond Jo 1 ne is out with its
time card for the month of June, and it is
a surprising fact that the name Rock Isl
and is scrupulously avoided among the
cities where the boats are supposed to
land, while other cities are mentioned, in
comparison with whioh Rock Island is
known where tbey have never been heard
of. If the Jo line wants business in Rock
Island it must let the people here know
when its boats ate to be expected here by
inserting the city's name on its time card.
There was a rise of seven inches in the
river last night, and from the reports
that come from up the liver much higher
water may be expectel. The water is
creeping pretty well up toward the rail
road tracks again, but no serious damage
is yet being done. The river is full of
drift, the result of the rii-e up above.
The chorus f the tec hundred voices
from the city schools is now well under
way. Rock Island schools are doing
their part. Next week the chorus of
six hundred adults will commence prac
tice. Let every singer in the two cities
fall into line. You will thereby secure
a reserved seat for the fire-works and
help to swell the erea'est chorus ever
heard in the Mississippi valley.
Why ib It Tuna T
It is the realization of a state of affairs
very much to be regretted that the
branch of the federal service in Rock
Isiand oyer whose destinies modest Mr.
Wells presides, must once in so often be
come a subject of public complaint.
The latest source of annoyance is the de
lay suffered in the delivery of mail de
posited in the city boxes destined to va
rious parts of the city. A recent instance
of this and it i3 only one of many was
the receipt by a Rock Island business
house of a letter at 9 o'clock one morning
which had been mailed by 7 the morning
previous. Why things are thus the late
boss should hasten to exp'ain.
THE J. S. E. KOAD.
An KfTort Being Jinrte to Mrror the
.uti-auce r the l,lne Into Ualrs
bnr. In Galesburg a strong effort is being
made to persuade the J. 8. E. line to
enter that city. The Mail of that city
W. S Gale received a letter from Pres
ident Hook, of the Jacksonville road, this
morning, in answer to one sent to him
last Satuurday, and In which it wa; sta
t?d tht-t in case the road should come
through Galesburg that this city would
furnish the right of way and depot
grounds. In his letter to Mr. Gale the
president of that road states that be is
glad to know that Gelesburg has woke
up to the fact that the road would be a
benefit to her. He further said that if
the city would guarantee the right of
way in depot grounds that the :ine would
be brought through here. Tbia
piece of news is quite encouraging to
the gentlemen who have the matter of
corresponding with the officials of the
road in charge. There is no denying the
fact that Galesburg wants the road and
that if the people set about trying to get
It they will succeed. Of course it will
require a vast amount of work to secure
the right of way, but the gentlemen
thiug it can be done, and another meet
ing for talking the matter over will prob
ably be held soon It wouid not be sur
prising if the Jacksonville & Southeast
ern trains were running in here before
another spring rolls around.
The Davenport Tribune suggests iu
the same connection:
Now if Davenport could offer the Jack
sonville Soutbets ern company a
bridge charter with preliminary surveys
and help to build it, that much together
with what Rock Island is doing would
doubtless give us a "sinch" on the pro
posed Jacksonville Southeastern ex
tension. A charter has been granted for
the construction of a bridge which
of necessity would bring it out at 'cast
one mile below the present government
bridge. The landing on the Illinois side
would be just about where the citizens of
Rock Island are endeavoring to secure
ground for the yards of the proposed ex
tension of the Jacksonville ISoutesst
ern road. This landing on the Illinois
side is not only near where Rock Island
expects to have the Jacksonville South
eastern yards located, but is also near the
Chicago, Burlington & Qiincy yards.
This latter company a few years ago were
willing to build, or help build, a bridge
across the river at this point if the people
of Davenport would promise them a rea
sonable amount of support and patron
age. There crrtainly can ba no reason
why the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
would not now be willing to make the
same proposition again.

Last night the members of the Frank
lin ho9e company met and auctioned off
the furniture, etc., in the hose house, and
also the truck and other paraphernalia,
andhereifter will not respond to any
alarms. The Franklin Hose enmpany
was organized July 80, 1838, with 20
members, and for one year responded to
alarms without receiving a cent from the
city in payment. Over $1,500 has oeen
spent by the company in improving the
city's hose house property, and an ag
gregate of oyer $4 000 has been expended
in maintaining the company. Each mem
ber has contributed an average of $50
towards the company.
The cart was purchased by William
Roth last night and Old Fritz, the horse,
who, by his wild runs, has startled many
a sleeper from his couch at night, and
thus assisted in bringing about the senti
ment for a paid department, was sold to
Weyerhauser & Denkmann. Rock Isl
and has had some of the best volunteer
companies in the state, but none better
than the Franklins, who could always be
counted on in time of danger, and tbey
it was who also assisted in bringing
about a paid system of fire protection.
The company has disbanded, but the
heroic efforts of its members, as well as
those of the other volunteer companies,
when the city was without a more mod
ern system, will always be remembered
by an appreciative public.
J. W. McNeemer was run in by the
police in Davenport last night for as

son of Moline. McNeemer explained
that Nelson had called him names which
was the reason for the trouble.
Enos Ailes yesterday swore out a
warrant charging Timothy O Connell of
Milan with assault with a deadly weap
on a result of the encounter between
the men on Saturday night, and the
case has been set for hearing to-morrow
morning before Magistrate Wivill.
O'Connell had previously sworn out a
warrant before a Milan justice charging
Ailes with assault, as he claims that the
latter was the first aggressor and that
his action was in self defense. Ailes'
hearing will probably come up later.
