The Interment of a Once Brilliant
The Liberal Kepabllean Club la Sol
emnly lit Away A Si amber
T Lesser jlub Formed
G. M. Looslxt.
The Liberal republican idea of cam
paign clubs was formally and solemnly
consigned to oblivion last night, never
again to rise, it the leaders and manipu
lators of party policy on that side of the
fence in Rock Island.are consulted. Pur
suant to arrangements agreed upon after
the death bed scene Tuesday night, a
number of the members of the party as
sembled at the office of E . B. Parmenter
last evening. The first solemn duty was
the interment of the late lamented idea,
so cruelly and prematurely cut short.
This office was performed, it should be
stated, with ceremonies of a becomingly
sorrowful nature. It was an intensely
solemn occasion, so much so that no one
ventured to speak. There were no words
of eloquence at the untimely taking off.
The once brilliant ide was simply ins
tarred, interred deep and interred for
ever. In the place of the late lamented, there
then came forth the Rock Island Repub
lish club, and then Much-Subdued Wil
cox pleadingly asked if the action of
changing the name of the club did away
with the official appointments, to which
Chairman Eyster replied in the negative.
Messrs Wilcox, Perry and Con ant were
thereupon appointed a committee on
It was still apparent that the adminis
tration was not showing the motherly
spirit to the new organization even
though it bad been changed to attain that
end, that it should, and a motion was
offered and accepted that something
should be done placing all elements of
the party on a more equal footing, and
including a proposition to make Post
master Howard Wells chairman of a com
mittee to make changes and additions to
the official roll. Flattering as was this
off r to ihe administration representa
tive, who had up to this time manifested
a dignified iniiifforence to the efforts of
those composing the Liberal reservation,
he did not propose to accept the proffer
until all things came his way. He was
not a member of the Liberal
club, he said, if it had merely changed its
name. If the club would adopt the league
rules of straigh-lce 1 republicanism
without any quibbling or side shows, he
would be willing to accept. A number
of members hastened to assure him that
when tbe Liberal idea expired, the club
had sought recognition among the clubs
of the republican league. Being thus
informed. Mr. Wells consented to serve
and a motion was quickly made and
adopted that the proposed committee on
changing and adding be composed of
Howard Wells, chairman, and a member
from each ward, and the committee was
then fixed up as follows:
Chairman, Howard Wells; First ward,
Andrew Johnson; Second ward. J. A.
Genung: Third ward. Dr. C. B. Kinyon,
Fourth ward. Dr. G. G. Craig, Fifth
ward. Charles Oswald; Sixth ward, Will
iam Edwards; Seventh ward, M. E.
I-, wa9 decided to have the committee
on headquarters report at the next
meeting, to conduct the campaign on the
same basis as four years ago when the
Wells war whoop firs: became known
and to send five delegates, in addition to
the oresident and secretary, to the league
convention at Springfield, Aug. 18.
These delegates as selected are: C. F.
Lynde, William McConochie, C. F.
Gaetjer. Dr. C. B. Kinyon and Morris
Rosenfield. The meeting adjourned, as
the Union puts it subject to the call of
tbe reorganizing committee.
SOME OTHER CXTJBS.
Tne First and Second Ward Republi
can club completed its organization at a
meeting at the Phoenix hoBe bouse last
Committees were appointed for various
purposes, including the placing of a
flag at Third avenue and Ninth street.
Adair Pleasants. E. Kreis, L. Y. Eck
hart, A. Genung and Phil Miller were
appointed delegates to the league con
vention. President I. D. Burgh and Sec
retary A. C Peterson being ex-officio
delegates. After the clerk makes a can
vass of the field it will no doubt see tbe
wisdom of consutling some of its com
mitteemen before enlisting them as mem
bers. The Third and Fourth ward club was
organized at tbe office of M. E. Sweeney.
It was determined to term the club tbe
Central Republican League club, and an
invitation was . extended to the republi
cans of tbe Fifth ward, who have thus
far been left out in the cold in the club
forming business, to ioin the club at its
next meeting. S. J. Collins was
elected president and John Rinck secre
tary. Messrs. William Rinck, W. B.
Ferguson. W. H. McCarthy, B. F. De
Gear and Dr. C. C. Carter were appointed
delegates to the League convention, with
the president and secretary. Messrs. S.
8. HullOeorge Perry and B. F. DeGear
were appointed a committee 'to secure
rooms and instructed to co-operate with
other -committees with a view to joint
occupancy with the Rock Island and
WORTH LOOKING AFTER.
Tbe Lower Brldare Idea tShoald Not
Bo Lost Bight Of.
The object of last night's adjourned
meeting of the Rock Island Citizens' Im
provement association was to receive
and consider the report of the special
committee delegated to look into tbe mat
ter of the lower bridge across Rock river
in the vicinity of the Hennepin canal.
The anticipated report, however, was not
forthcoming, and there was nothing to
do, but adiourn until such time as the
committee may be ready to commun icate
the result of its investigations.
The lower bridge project is, in
the estimation of The Argus, of more
importance than all may regard it. Tbe
present plan is simply to bridge over the
river 'near Big Island temporarily and
while the canal is being built, a pontoon
bridge being sufficient for all such pur
poses. The better proposition, how
ever, looks ' beyond a temporary struc
ture, and to a permanent bridge thrown
across the stream near the mouth of Rock
river that will give Rock Island ready ac
cess at all times to the lower end of the

J. K. Groom, formerly of the Molina
Dispatch and Rock Island Union, and
severed his connection with the piper
forthwith. At the sam'i time Rtlph
Haverstick, local editor resigned, and
today the last issue of the paper as
a daily is to be issued. Hereafter the
paper will return to its weekly edi

it and the Tri-City Trade Journal joint

as to hi3 future, and miy locate either in
Peoria or Chicago.
The Daily Rock Islander closes the
second week of its publication tonight,
and ceases because it has not proven a
paying venture, and the outlook was not
hopeful for improvement. Commenting on
tbe first appearance of, the new paper.inits
issue of Aug. 1, The Argus made this
statement, and it has no reason for a
change of the views thus expressed:
It is no child's play to make a success
financially of issuing a paper daily, or of
filling it with readable local news day
after day in a city tho size of R .ck Isl -and.
and it requires work to accomplish
either. If the Rock Islander can find a
field of usefulness in Rock Island, it has
only the best wishes of The Argus for
The scenic effects of "The Ensign,"
tbe new and nautical drama by William
Haworth, are said to be on a scale simi
lar to the great spectacular shows. "The
Erjsign" is not strickly a spectacular
drama, however. Its managers claim
sufficient merit for it irrespective of
scenery; at the same time they have pro
vided the most elaborate and expensive
scenic outfit for the play. There are five
great scenes, each scene original and
treating of a subject never before han
dled by the scenic artist. There is one
stage picture, painted by John H Young,
of the Broadway theatre. New York,
which shows tbe interior of a man-of-war
at sea. It is a sectional view, show
ing the main deck and tbe gun deck, and
illustrating the double action of the
drama. The details of this scene are
from photographs and color studies
made ou board a U. 8. man-of-war lying
at tbe Brooklyn yard. It is one of tbe
most powerful creations ever put on the
stage. "The Ensign,' will be Riven at
the Burtis Opera House on Wednesday,
