a larj;e number of callers by Messrs. T. 8.
Silvis, William McEniry, J.W. Potter
To an Akgcs representative who had a
few tjinutes chat with the judge between
intro luctlons, he said: ''I am merely
making a social'call, and sm not making
a business of talking politics at the pres
ent i me."
Pressed for his opinion on state issues
aid tbe school question in particular, he
said: "A'.l cur people seem to be har
monized on that subject. Tbe re
publicans have at last discovered
the trror of their wavs on this all
important subject, and have come around
to th; same view we have entertained on
the subject. Had they come to this con
clusion, however, I before they took des
perate measures, which brought forth a
unanimous expression of disapproval
from allfquarttrs of the state and the re
sultaat repudiation on their part of their
prev.ous legislative enactment and exec
utive sanction, it would have been less
embarrassing to them as a matter of couise
and they would have less to explain this
year. TheJ democrats are, of course, in
favot of aicompulsory education law, but
one without the obnoxious and oppres
sive features so characteristic of the pres
cut republican law, strikes them as more
designed to accomplish the desired ends,
and tt the same time be more within the
scope of reason and justice."
"Do you think the tariff issue will en
ter tetany considerable extent in etat'
"It deed, I do. I have little doubt that
it will be one of tbe leading issues of the
campaign this year. Like its position on
the school law of the state, the demo
cratic party occupies ground with refer-
ence to the tariff in its relations to our
whole countryjthat will bring it forth for
diecu islonand instruction in every place
in thH land where a ballot is to be cast
"What is your candid opinion of the
outlook in the state as to the results of
the e ectionT"
"Taere is every indication that the
democrats will carry the state by a large
"And Cook county T"
"Cook county will be overwhelmingly
democratic. The majority is estimated
at from 10,000 to 20,000."
Jue ge Altgeld was asked if he would
visit Rock Island later in the campaign
and n.ake a speech, and his reply was
that he most assuredly would. "My
purpese on this visit," he said, "is to be
come acquainted with as many of the
busin;8s and professional men, the farm
ers, laborers, the active men generally of
the slate as I can. They are the men
who make and control great states, and
they t.re the men I am anxious to see and
become acquainted with. The every day
working people of the state who consti
tute tie bulk of our people and whose
voice governs the state, are the cnes
whom I desire to meet."
The Judge said that he already visited
18 of the 102 counties of the state, and
proposed to visit them all at least twice
durin ; the campaign if it was possible
for hi n to do so. During the past week
he has visited Princeton, Kewanee,
Galva, Toulon, Cambridge, Oquawka,
Keithuburg, Aledo and Cable. He puts

is spending it visiting Kansas City, Oma

The C. R. I. & P. is certainly doing
all that could be expected of it in the
way of improvements. It has now been
decided to paint the round bouse, switch

yards that needs a coat ct color.
C. G, Wilson, superintendent of the

Western Union Telegraph Company and
is now in his new position.
All the passenger trains of the C. R

the river and accordingly a number of
crews have their lay over here. It has
also made it necessary for several fami

Yardmaster MiQuaid, of the C, R. I.

over the tracks in the yards where 6and
has been used for road ballast and some
of the tracks east of the round house arc
being planked, where the coaches will be
washed and cleaned.
The land slide that occurred on the

all been cleared away and all trains are
now running straight through instead of
around by Muscatine.

Notwithstanding the report of the fall
up the river the old Father of Waters has
continued to rise at this point during the
last 24 hours. The water is now lap
ping close up to the railroad tracks on
First avenue. The embankment in the
lower part of town along the R. I. & P.
road is still in good condition and no
danger is feared from that point. The
stage of water at the Rock Island bridge
at neon today was 14:90 Bgainst 14.15
yesterday, but is now rising very Blowly
and is almost at a standstill, so that un
less another rise comes no danger need
be feared. In Davenport tbe water is up
along Front street and has blocked
out the B. C. R. & N. but to
serious damage has yet been done. At
Dubuque more or less damage has teen
done and saw mills, etc., are all closed
down. The Wapsie bottoms at Clinton
are all overflowed as are also the Marias
de Osier bottoms opposite, but no great
amount of damage is reported from either
locality. Down the river at Fort Madis
son, Muscatine and Burlington tbe river
is out of its banks and is spreading over
the low lands.
Health Commissioner Eyster wishes to
call the attention of residehts.and partic
ularly those in the central portion of tbe
city, to their sewer connections. The
high water in the west end of the city and
wherever tbe sewers empty, has made it
dangerous on account of the water backing
up, which is likely on account of no ven
tilation, to create sewer gas. On this
account he suggests that all residents
with sewer connections be careful to keep
traps closed and their houses well venti

The LeClaire Navigation company
has had a another break-down. Thurs
day morning Capt. Blair received a tel
egram notifying him that the Volunteer
came to grief Wednesday between Belle
vue and Dubuque. She broke a crank,
end then her big pitman ran wild and
she knocked out both ends of the cyl
inder of ths engine on the disabled side,
and, as far as known, broke out part of
the cylinder itself. The boat was got
into Dubuque by running one side, and
there she is laid up for repairs. Her
stroke is two inches shorter than that of
the Silver Crescent, but an effort is to be
made to place a crank of the latter on
her while tbe Crescent is being repaired
at LeClaire. With two of the best boats
in the fleet laid up at the same time,
and especiallv just now when time means
large money, the navigation company
feels that its lines have fallen in unpleas
ant places. It has been singularly for
tunate in times past, but now it seems to
be having all the wrecks, while its com
petitors are free. Two have happened
in close order.
That Tired Feeling
Is often the forerunner ef serious illness,
which may be broken up if a god tonic
like Hood's Sarsaparilla is taken in seas
son. This medicine invigorates the kid
neys and liver to remove the waste from
the system, purifies the blood and builds
up the strength.
Constipation is caused by loss of the
peristaltic action of the bowels. Hood's
Pills restore tbis action and invigorate the
