CtySpD ITS CAREER.
The-- (Liieral Club Winds Up
After Having Changed It Name In Or
der to Receive Recognition, It
. ,:, Died Without Grace Lut Night.
At the office of E. E. P&rmenter, in
the Mitchell & Lynde building last night,
occurred the death bed scene of the erst
while Liberal Republican club of Rock
Islaud. B'.inding flashes of lurid light
ning shot athwart the heavens, and
shone in at the window, lighting up the
room where & tcece so painful that it de
fies description, was enacted. Eight
stalwart men, whose sturdy frames were
bowed with the grief of Bad t ipair.'hov
ered about a table, and attempted to re
suscitate the sinking infant, but it was
too late, and as the hands of the clock
pointed It 8:20, it passed to the great be
yond. It was a sad night for the Tip
peeanoe tribe for the little one that they
bad so lovingly cherished, had passed
away, and all that was left to do was to
get consolation from the cold world.
In the absence of the president, Dr
Eyster was called to the chair, and Old
Lady Conant walked in her sleep up to

Rock Island, everybody seeming to
know without being told the reason why

The shuffling footsteps of Much-a-Talk
Sweeney were beard down the ball and a
moment later he slunk in on the assem
bled Warriors followed by Never-Say-Die
Collins. They had come to arrange a
truce between the ward republican clubs
and the central club and from the dis
cussion that followed it was this, that if
the ward clubs were to be subordinate to
the Central or Liberal idea they were not
in it, but ir on the other hand the Central
was willing to be just a common affair
like the other ones, then it was all right.
It was discussed in all its phases, but as
his lateness. Mr. Wells, hadn't shown up
as per agreement.and the mourners of the
late Liberal idea couldn't be brought to
ake their proper medicine at the hands
of the city ommittee. it was decided to
adjourn until tomorrow night when it is
hoped the pill will be sugar-coated, and
the club can be taken in along with the
