kt the aseembly hall ef the Rock Isl
anc High school building last night oc
cur red the eighteenth annual meeting
am social of the High School Alumni
Asj ociation, which had been postponed
fro n Monday evening on account of the
we ither. Nearly 300 of the alumni and
its friends were present, and the affair
pre vtd one of the most enjoyable in the
hie ory of the organization.
The exercises were opeued with prayer
by Rev. F. W. Merrell, after which
Rs ph Haverstick introduced the class of
'"98." In so doing he explained the
aims and objects of the association and
of the brilliant record left by the class
just graduated, after which he gave a

They have two Cooks and a Stewart to
look after their domestic concerns, but
ar sadly in need of a floctor as one of the
bors is continually complaining of a

yeir from now they may not be separated
by a rod Normoyle, but may be living
pi.- kcefoJly, contented within the limits of
thi? their adopted city. Ladies and gen
tlemen, members of the Alumni, I have
tht honor and exceeding pleasure of in
trt ducing to you the class of 1892."
The speech was responded to on behalf
of the class by Paul Cieland in a very
happy manner, after which Mi?s Carrie
Kt mble rendered a charming piano solo
wl ich was followed by a select reading
"A Foreigner's Idea of America," by
M ss Emmi Battles. The Hith school
q;:rtelte, composed of Prof. J, A. Bis
In p, Paul Cieland and Mi:scs Louise
Whisler and Blanche Cieland, then sang
"S weet and Low," with piano accompan
iment by Miss Nettie Coyne.
At the conclusion of this part of the
pr igrsmme refreshments were served,
th s being followed by the election of of
fic:rs which resulted as follows:
President Ralph Haverstick '90.
Vice-President Mi38 Jessie Frick '91.

The Union Bays that in Mr. Gest's suit
ag tinst the city it is " Mr. Gest and not
tho city that is the aggrieved partv."
Tfce Union is making a desperate attempt
to help Gest out of his action against our
ta payers, but has tackled a difficult un
de -taking. It is a new rule of law that
mt kes the plaintiff in a case, the espec
ial y grieved party before the case is ever
he ird . There are times when the very
ac: of the bringing of a suit gives ibe de
de endant a grievance, and a just one
too. At all events grievances are gener
ally determined by court and jury. It
w. uld a pretty state of affairs indeed in
th-s country if all a man had to do to
establish a grievance would be to
br ng snit. As well dispense with
co irts and juries and simply retain the
clerk to record " grievances " and let the
de ense in all cases take the consequences.
Tee Argds believes Mr. Gest or any
other individual who sues the city should
establish his grievance in court before re
ceiving one cent. In a word The Argcs
do :s not believe in paying tribute to every
mi n who sues the city, especially when
it is intended to advance his political

THAT CONVENTION CALL.
Wiry Haas was O v. rrnied Yesterdny
amJ tin- Tim- and Place Changed
Vest and the Forlorn Hop-.
The repudiation of J. L. Haas' action in
calling the congressional convention in
Rock Island, July 7, by the meeting of
the committee yesterday, was about a
humiliating treatment as a hard working
politician is usually subjected to. There
were but two members from the lower end
of the district present, but they were two
to one and sufficient to knock out Mr.
Haas ana that was done, and the date
changed to August 17, aud the place,
Bushnell. The party, however, ought not
to blame Mr. Haas, who in his original
call was working under the hypnotic
influence no doubt.of his office neighbor,
Mr. Gest. The party, though, is in a pit
iable state of uncertainty as to what it
ought to do. The selection of a candi
date depends entirely upon circumstances.
Gest is willing and anxious to be the
nominee, but the party is not so desirous
of selecting him unless all other plans
fail. In fact the party is at sea as to an
available candidate, and is fostered
solely by the hope that Mr. Cable may de
cline to be the democratic nominee.
Should such good fortune befall the re
publicans eyery republican corn field in
the lower end of the district would pre
sent a candidate, and Gest as a matter of
course would not be in il at all, at all.
Gest in other words is being held back by
the party to lead its foilorn hope agiinBt
Mr. Cable who is just as sure to be again
triumphantly elected as he i3 to be the
democratic nominee. The republicans
therefore might as well go ahead with
thtir duck killing and put up the game.
If Gest is willing, better take him at his
word, for he is apparently the only man
who wants it in the face of the present
state of affairs. And the men who con
trolled y s;erday's action and secured a
postponement until to was late enough to
see whether Mr. Cable would accept a
renc mination and fixed the place so that
in the event of such good fortune they
could control the nomination, may as well
give up the ship now as any time and pin
taeir faith to Rock Island's obstructionist.
W.H. Gest. He seems to be the best the
party can offer here, but he is good enough
for the sacrifice.
Frank Williams was sent down to the
county jail yesterday for yagrancy, his
means of support being invisible.
Frank Bleuer was before Justice Cooke
yesterday on complaint of John Wol
fraum who alledged the former had
threatened to whip him. The justice
p aced Bleuer under bonis of S50 to keep
the peace for six months.
Jack Kennedy was out on a jaunt with
a jag lat night and the police ran him in
for disturbing the peace and quiet of his
mother's home. He will probably be
uiven a hearing tomorrow.

The Joliet aggregation took two games
yesterday from our team, the first by a
score of 4 to 1 and the second by a score
of 5 to 2. Both were interesting games
and tfce Twin-City's have nothing to
be ashamed of, the work of both B-trtson
and Baxendale being good. Cushman
has arrived in Joliet and will proba. ly
pitch today. Fielder Roberts arrived
here from Texas last night and left for
Joliet this morning and will in all proba
bility also play teiday. He is a goodlook
ing athletic fellow and has the appearance
of a ball player. Today's Chicago papers
state that the Quincy team has been
taken in hand by other parties there and
that in order to give all a show a new
season will be started June 16, which
will be tomorrow, so that today's games
will end the old season, this being the
conditions under which Q iincy remains
in the league. A telegram from M E.

The Xiw Iron Bridge at Covington
Collapses With i.r--of40 Lives.
Cincinnati, June 15 The new iron
bridge between Newport and Covineton
collapsed today, killing 40 people.
ine ondge was really in the course of
erection oyer the Licking river, between
Covington and Newport, Ky. Forty-five
woramen were on it. So far as known
only two escaped unhurt. Others were
either killed by the crushing of iron and
timbers, or were drowned. The cause is
surmised to be the weakening of wooden
structure ot the false work the High
river bridge having washed cut '.he earth
about the supports. Today a force of
men wss engaged in putting in place the
heavy iron work on the main span.
Suddenly without warning there was a
crackling sound of breaking timbers
swaying of the structure and headlong
plunge of the whole mass of timbers,
iron and helpless workmen into the Lick
ing river 50 feet below. Very few
forms were seen struggling on the sur
face as most of the men were pinioned
beneath the wreck.
