" The mayor's speech before the liberal
republican reservation Friday night was a
curiosity. Among the mayor's
flights of oratory were these utterances:
"A free ballot and an honest count to
tue necro as well as to the rebel." "We
will let the bygones be bygones, and let
the dead past bury its dead". The ques
tion of the meaning of these phrases the
mayor left to his hearers as food for re
flection, as he did his criticism of the
liber! idea of republicanism.

A case of wanton recklessness in driv
ing. which is becoming more or less com
mon in the city of late, was that in which
Dr. and Mrs. G. L. Eyster b rely escaped
serious injury on Saturday night. While
driving along Moline avenue near the
Galpin Moore residence, they were run
into by another rig and the wheels locked
Dr. Eyster called to the driver of the
other rig to wait a moment, but instead
the horse was whipped up and the doc
tor's buggy was dragged quite a distance
until a wheel was broken and the occu
pants were thrown out on the pavement
the horse being barely prevented from
running away. Fortunately Dr. or Mrs
Eyster were neither seriously injured
though they sustained a aeyere shock
The doctor's horse was injured by having
the broken shaft run into his flank, but
the results will not be terions. The
reckltss drivers of the vehicle were after
ward picked up in Moline and were
brought back to this city, and at the po
lice station gave their names as Charles
Sherwood and Ed Runcie.. They were
brought before Magistrate Wivill this
morning and were each fined $10 and
costs. The police should not only guard
more against fast and reckless driving,
but should investigate the cause of every
runaway, and every case of carelessness
either in driving or in leaving horses un
hitched, be prosecuted under the city
ACCIDKXTS I2t DAVBNrORT
In Davenport Saturday evening as little
2-year old Freddie Ashlam was playing
in the street near his home at the corner
of Rock Island and Fourth streets he was
run over by one of the delivery wagons
of the Frabm brewery. One of the
wheels of the wagon went squarely across
the boy's body, and although it was itn-
possible to tell the extent of his injuries,
it is feared that internal harm of a serious
nature may be shown. Sadie Hampton,
a girl, witnessed the accident to
the Ashlam boy, and the sight, prob
amy coupled with the prostrating
effects of the heat, threw her into such
a stite of nervons hysteria as to excite
tne senous alarm oi ner relatives for a
time. The physicians called, however.
do not anticipate serious results in her
case. A little daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Milt Giaspell was the victim of an acci
dent at about the same time that the
Ashlam boy was hurt. The child fell
from the surrey in which it had been en
joying a drive with other members of the
family, at Third and Perry streets, and
one of the rear wheels of the surrey
passed over it- In this cue the weight
borne by the child was not equal to that
which passed over the Ashlam boy, but
there is also a possbility of internal in
A Dangerous Compound.
The most unstable compound known
to chemistry, and therefore the most ex
plosive substance so far discovered, is chlo
ride of nitrogen, which probably consists of
three parts of chloride united with one of
nitrogen. Its terribly explosive character,
which has so far prevented its accurate
analysis, is due to the fact that it is a com
bination of one of the most active with one
of the most inert elements in nature.
