Ont a Rr presentation na to Hta Fro
The Davenport Bulletin has made its
appearance, and the Leader contains the
following as an explanation of its publi
lication: Some time ago when the desirs of
every good democrat was to be present at
the June convention in Chicago, it oc
curred to the mind of Chancellor
Heinz, county attorney of Scott,
county chairman. member of
the popular firm of Heinz & Fisher, and
bloated bondholder, that the convention
needed his presence. In company with the
rest of the clan, the chancellor bought a
ticket to Chicago where he roamed about
according to a chancellor's will till the
convention was called. Now, the con
vention this year was was not a free-for-all
sweeps! akes affair, and before en
trance into the great shed, it was neces
sary to show your ticket. The chan
cellor had none, nor had he any influence
with which to obtain the coveted article
Remembering the power of the press, he
applied for a seat in the name of the
Davenport Bulletin. Some one said that
there was no such a sheet published in
this fair city, nor did the chancellor
have his credentials along to show that
the villain lied, but at the next conven
tion he will have all the necessaries. In
the process of time a man was discov
ered wbo had beard of the Bulletin, and
the chancellor was admitted.
That the honor and veracity of his ex
cellency may not again be doubted, we
take pleasure in announcing the first is
sue of the Bulletin, and commenting
upon it, as an addition to the press
of the city. The scope of the
journal may be seen from perusing the
following lines taken from its pros pec
tus, upon which we refrain from com
menting: "The Davenport Bulletin begs leave to
announce that it has no apology to offer
for its appearance and disappearance
as our fundamental rule is to charge
nothing for advertising nor subscription."
Nothing but straight matter is con
tained in the Bulletin, matter which
tastes of authoritv not only municipal,
county and state, but even that of the
supreme authority at Washington. In
fact, the entire space of itself and sup
plement is devoted to the public ser
vants not the least of whom is the chan
cellor himself. Unlike most supple
ments, thatjissued by the Bulletin con
tains more matter than the journal itself,
information which will be of greatest in
tertst to all wbo receive a copy and those
who are represented therein.
Published on this day (July 31) only,
to appreciate the value of tha compila
tion it will be necessary to hang it on
the wall and refer to it whenever you
wish to know anything about the offi
cers of the city, countv, township, state
or courts. Accompanying the issue there
is a box of Havannas freely distributed
to all who call at the office and out of
justice to the giver it must be said that
bis cigars are on par witb his editorials.

about midnight that word was sent the
officials of the United States express,
who were to take care of tim, that he
could not be shipped he had hurt him
self again. It seems that during the day
Allerton showed great improvement.
His keeper led him out of his stable and
allowed him to graza at the end of a
rope, and he broke away and trotted
around a little on the mile track. The
exercise seemed to do him good, but
later be lay down and rolled over and in
getting up bore his weight too heavily
upon his injured leg, with the result that
he immediately showed , much increased
lameness. So he was not shipped today.
