Rev. Kerr on the Snap Easiness of
the Select Committee.
Tell Mr. West WbatheThUbtoflt
A Jaadlst Hloaaeir bat Oaly
by Kalr Hubs.
Learning of me snap judgment Gest
and the select committee had sprung on
the republicans of the county in order to
insure Gest of the republican congres
sional semination as far as the sup
port of Rock Island county was con
cerned. Rev. W. T. Kerr of Miln. who
has a by no'means insignificant following
all over the county and the entire district,
for that matter, came to town this
morning to look the thing up
a little. One of the first men he ran
across was Mr. Gest himself. Now, Mr.
Kerr is not a man who minces matters so
when he encountered Mr. Gest near
Mitchell & Lynde's corner, be hastened to
mke inquiry as who were the select
coTmittee of Rock Island who were at
tenrrtirjg to run the republican party of
Rock Island county.
To ibis question Mr. Gest meekly re
p.icd that he did not know. He had
merely been called on by a number of
reprtsensative republicans of Rock Isl
and who had asked him to consent to be
the candidate of the republicans of Rock
Island county, and he had consented.
Mr. Kerr said something about he did
not exactly like that way of dcing things
and that he believed in hearing from tbe
majority, and then the conversation was
turned upon other subjects.
Later when asked by an Argus re
porter as to his candidacy, Mr. Kerr
sud: "Yes, my friends ure working for
me through tbe district, and while I
should be glad to become a candidate, I
have made no formal announcement to
tbat effect. nor will I. This
much I will say, though, I am not like a
man who does not want to go to con
gress, for I do. I should appreciate the
nomination, and work bard to be elected,
but political honor is not so much to me
that I will sacrifice personal honor to at
tain it. If I may borrow an idea from a
great American, I will say, "I would
rather be honorable than be congress-

For some time past tbe Belgian Catho
lics of this city and Moline have been
desirous of securing a priest who could
address them in their mother tongue.
Bishop Spaldicg of Peoria has finally
concluded to send another priest here.
and a new congregation will accordingly
be es'.ablithed to embrace the Roman
Catholics of both Rock Island and Mo
line. Tbe priest who will have charge
of the new congregation will be Rev.
Father DeVos, now in charge of a colony
in Greeley county, Nebraska, estab
lished by Bishop Spalding, and which
bcirs his name. A new church
will be built in the east end of the city
somewhere near the Moline line though
the exct location has not yet been de
termined. There are about 200 Belgian
families in this city and nearly the same
number in Moline, and this population is
rapi dly increasing. Father DeVos will
probably be here by thelst of September
to take the census of the Belgian popula
tion, after which work on the new church
will shortly begin.
There is also a possibility that another
new church for the English epeaking
Catholics 'may be erected in ihe city in
the near future.

WHERE IS BERT E. MOORE?
A Port Byron Young Man Mysteriously
Missing: Left His Bank Account at
A case involving the mysterious dis
appearance of a young man who resided
at Port Byron has just came to light
that for some unknown reason has been
kept remarkably quiet, and is shrouded
in an impenetrable veil of mystery.
About five years ago Bert E. Moore
then a lad 16 years of age, came to Port
Byron from Dakotah, Minn., for the
purpose of learning the tinner's trade
with a cousin, W. H. Ney, who con
ducts a stoye and hardware store there.
Young Moore who was an orphan, was
taken into the Ney family and boarded
with them, and during the succeeding
four years learned his trade, and being a
bright, active lad and desirous of learn
ing more about tbe business, h3 left Mr.
Ney's employ and went to work in Mo
line. He only remained there a short
time, however, and afterward returned
to Port Byron, and again went to work
in Ney 's store. He was apparently sat
isfied with his place and was
getting along all right when
suddenly on the 15ih of April last
he disappeared without saying a word to
anyone or leaving tbe slightest intima
tion of his in'entions. Tne
first known of his having left town was
on the morning staled, when Mr. Ney,
upon coming down in the morninp, found
the store locked and no one about. He
returned to his home, and upon examin
ing the young man's bedroom, it was
found that his bed had not been occu'
pied on the previous night.
Inquiries were at once made about
town, but no one hsd seen the young
man on the previous night, till at last it
was learned that he had been to Devore's
bank, and had drawn some money, and
bad purchased a ticket for Moline. It
was then thought tbat he had become
dissatisfied, and had gone to look for
work, and no further attention was
paid to it. but as tbe days passed and
nothing was heard from him, his rela
tives became anxious, and a search was
made for him in Moline, which proved of
no avail, as no trce whatever of his ar
rival there could be found. It was 'then
thought tbat perhaps he had gone north,
as he has a brother living at Flor
ence, Minn., and another at
LaCrosse, Wis. Information from bath
of them disclosed the fact that nothing
had been heard of him there and the fam
ily have been waiting anxiously ever
since in the hope of hearing something
of his whereabouts, but not a single trace
of him has yet been found.
The circumstances surrounding the
case are mtde more mysteri
ous owing to the fact that
young Moore took no clothes whatever
with him.having left his trunk and all bis
belongings at Mr. Ney's home, and also
the remainder of his money which is still
in the bank there awaiting bis order.
As several months have now, passed
without any trace of him being found his
friends will mike an effort to clear up the
mystery that surrounds the case.

WILL BE A WINNER,
The Democratic County Ticket
When it is Named.
Who are Likely to be the Candidates
Before the Convention to be
Held Angmt 4.
Recognizing the fact tbat democratic
chances for carrying the state this fall
were never as bright as this year, the
election of Judge Alt geld having been
conceded by conservative men of both
parties in the state, and that the Elev
enth congressional district has been given
to the democrats by f organ e conclusion,
the democrats of Rock Island county are
determined to be in it with tbe party in
the state and congressional district, and
are therefore considering the moat avail
able material to compose the ticket to be
placed in the field by the county democs
racy when it assembles Aug. 24.
So far the preference is for a ticket
composed of Adam Stamm of Buffalo
Prairie for circuit clerk, M. J. McEniry
of Moliiie for state's attorney and H. C.
Wivill of Rock Island for coroner. Of
course the democracy of Rock Island
county will be strictly in it this fall with
tbe rest of the state in the contest which
is to decide the character of the national
administration for the next four years,
but with the candidates named on the
county ticket there is no possibility of
doubt as to bringing Rock Island county
into line with the democratic couniies of
Illinois may prove the pivotal state
of the union in deciding tbe political out
come, and tbe Eleventh district and Rock
Island county may determine how Illinois
stands. The democrats have only to act
wLely in the selection of their candi
dates to mike tbat result as it should be.
