It vas a Desperate Attempt to
But the t'rowil Had to be Invited to
Applaud the Ticket nnd Then It
was Very Weak Hat m day
The republicans of Rock Island, or at
least a portion of them, made a vigorous
and desperate attempt to ratify the nomi
nation of Harrison and Reid Saturday
night. Notwithstanding that the pro
posed event had been properly tn
n unced, and that the late Mr Wells had
Bleuer's band out parading the Btreets
for an hour before the meeting was
called, it was a very small band of the
faithful that assembled about Mr. Well's
select carriage load when it drew up on
Market Square, the place announced for
the meeting at 8 o'clock. Then such a
hustling as there was! A. messenter was
dispatched between tne cfti:es of
Sweeney & Walker and Mr. Lee Gait
on onposite sides of the square in
hot haste. The crowd which had
been drawn hither by the band
which at once began playing,
"Marching Through Georgia," stood
meanwhile spell bound gazing with awe
at the men in the carriages. The ex
planation of the cause of the flurry be
twecn the two offices on opposite fides
of the square was soon explained by the
flis'uing of two locomotive headlights, by
means of which it was hoped to compete
with the moon in illuminating the scene.
After the desired effects had been pro
duced, E. D. Sweeney, who had been
deputised to master the ceremonies, a"
rose in the carriage and solemnly an
nounced that two hours before a wave of
enthusiasm had been started on the At
lantic coast over the nomination of Har
rison and had been started west. It had
rolled over the Al'eghanies and come
west uutil it h&d struck the Mississippi
valley, and after the people here had ex
pressel themselves it would start on a
cross the plains and over the Rockies to
the Pacific, where it would pass out
through the Golden gate and but Mr.
Sweeney did not say whether it would go
on to the Honolulu, because no
doubt, of the limited time at his dis
posal. He, however, lauded Harrison's
nomination to the kies, with the rising
inflection ou Harrison. He was the
best president that had ever sat is the
white house; be was the greatest man
that had ever lived, the lustre of whose
glorious deeds outshone everything be
fore recorded in our national his
tory. And so Vr. Sweeney talked and
talked until he was hoarse and finally sat
down, after having introduced Dr. Pat
rick Gregg. The doctor made a short
talk, much less impassioned than that
of his predecessor, and it was with nota
bly less of an iffirt The venerable doc
tor thought, that the country was safe in
the hands of either party, but safer he
believed in the hands of Harrison than
anyone else. He renewed his feality
to republican d ictrines and quietly re
tired to his seat in the carriage.
C. J. Sear.e then made a studied effort
to make an impression. He commenced
by apologizing for his own appearance
and paying the somewhat left-banded
compliment to those who had spoken and
were to come, by saying that the com.
mittee had inconsiderately placed the
poorest speaker first, but that if the
crowd would be patient it would get the
dessert later on. Mr. Searle, it may be ex
plained, is a candidate for the republican
nomination for state's attorney, and in
justice to his practices as a lawyer it
should be said that he is not the individ
ual who became the laughine stock of ths
community in connection with a suit
against The Aitocs a few months since
but bis aspirations are such that it was
incumbent upon him to make the best of
his opportunities Saturd ay night. And
he did. He first recited the history of
the United States, then told in particular
all about the civil war, and presented
some startling facts that bad never been
heard before about the men who put it
down and he said something about it be
ing a good plan to pension the disable 1
survivors. There was a possibility, he
said in the same connection, of a charge
of administration next fall, but not a pro
bability. He tried to show why there
should not be, the sum and substance of
his remarks being that Harrison ought to
be re-elected because he is a republican .
Mr. Sweeney with a flourish of trump
ets brought on the dessert ex-Congressman
W. H. Geat. Mr. Gest's remarks
were begun, continued and ended in
praise of the billion-dollar congress, of
which it will be remembered, he was a
member. The democrats he said, had de
nounced the appropriations of the last
republican congress and yet had already
prepared a river and harbor bill with
$50,000,000 "and," said Mr. Gest, "I
thank God for it." He talked about the
innumerable benefits that never came
from the McKinley bill, made prophecies
about who would probably be the demo
cratic nominee, and retired.
Up to this time there had not been a
sound indicative of the un orking of en
thusiasm on the part of the audience,
though every speiker had paused at each
mention of the name of Harrison to per
mit it Not even had Mr. Sweeney's
statement in detail .of the prog
ress of the tidal wave of
enthusiasm ocross the country brought it
out. 8o Mr. Sweeney got up and put it
right at the audienoe. He proposed three
cheers for Harrison and Ueid and with the
assistance of the band they were given.
The crowd then dispersed.
There were three conspicuous features
of the affair; one was, aa heretofore
stated, the failure of the crowd to en
thuse or to land the mention of Harrison's
name, until invited to do so, another the
absence of the late Mr. Well's who
was undoubtedly telegraphing the pror
ceedings to Harrison, and the other was
the frantic effort made by Deputy Col
lector Bostock to be invited to speak.
Bostock did all bu ask those in charge of
the meeting to call upon him, and when
all was oyer, and he found that it was not
to he recorded that he was ai:ong
the first to declare his approbation of Mr.
Harrison's renomination his face took an
expression of hopeless despair that was
