The Rock Island county delegation re
turned from Bushnell last niebt after
having placed Gest among the relics of
the past. When the delegation went
down it was known to be just lukewarm
and that was all, and after its arrival there
the fact was doubly demonstrated. The
utter absence of any buttonholing tactics
on the part of the delegates from this
county showed only too plainly that they
were there more as a matter of foim than
anything else. That the delegation se-.
lected was not in harmony with the in
structions given was made apparent at
every turn. Only 18 out of the 31 ap
pointed were in attendance, which
showed that there was trouble some
where in whipping them into line.
It was amusin-; to note the difference
in the expression f the faces of the Rock
Island delegates on the return trip from
what it hml bi rn on the way down.
Something fct-mid to please them all.
and most anyone could have guessed
what it was. "Steve" Hull claims
the honor singly of having worked Stur
jeon'a nomination through. "Steve" is a
pretty smooth fellow, but fee hasn't yet
explained how he managed to secure
Sturgeon's nomination was somewhat
of a -surprise. It was decided in the
morning to present his name, and was
given him as a sort of Balm of Gilead
The effects were almost instantaneous,
and it is wonderful the change it has
The feeling in the lower end of the
district was very bitter toward Gest, it
bewig the general opinion expressed by
the delegates from the lower counties
tkat he did not ar.crit a renomination; and
tfee Rack Island contingent didn't labor
very hard to tell them anything different,

A venae Paving; Contract.
The Roekford Construction company
finished up the Third avenue pavement
clear as far as Twentieth street Tuesday
night, and the avenue was thrown open
to traffic west of that street. The con
tractors yesterday took up a portion of
the Twentieth street intersection put in by
them on the Twentieth street job, and in
whici inferior brick were used, the com
pany at the time agreeing to replace
them as soon as they began to show
signs of wearing. Although these brick
have he'd their own remarkably well
and there was no particular occasion
to remove them, the contractors took ad
yanlage of the situation requiring a
charge in the catch basin at Twentieth
street and Third avenue and the conse
guent removal of some of the brick, and
put in the quarter of the intersection
with good vitrified brick. The Rock
ford company believes in doing its work
3 it goes, and doing it right.
The company is now hustling the
Third avenue work ea9t of Twentieth
and will reach the viaduct in two weeks'
time at the present rite of progress.

It will be remembered that the street

in prospect, and a number of contractors

Anthraelte I Advancing.
Anthracite coal is advancing in price
almost dailv. In Davenport people are
clubbing together and buying their win
tera supply of hard c al by the ton in
hopes of saving money in the aggregate
bv the operation. Lickawaaa and Scran-
ton are sold at $8 25 this summer, and
Lehigh at $8-75. The retail figure is 75
cents a ton more than last year, but even
this is staled by the dealers to be 25 cents
a von untJer the market as they are s.iid
to be buvine for an eve dollar more
thacthen. It is not known positively
that there will be another advance wilh
the ilrst of September, but ttoere is good
reason to believe that such a move on the
part or the men in control is m prepara
tion. This rise may be 25 cents, and it
maybe 50. In any event it is likely to be
all -the customer of the coal merchant
wants it to be.

The Sew Order Which la
Ions to Nome of I'nele
The government order as to gaugers,
which takes the cream of the income of
that adjunct to Uncle Sam's revenue ser
vice, ia appended.
The provisions of the legislative, iu-
dicial and executive appropriation act of
congress, approved July 16. 1892, relat
ing io internal revenue, require all pack
ages of distilled spirits filled on the
premises of an authorized rectifier on and
after the 15th instant, to be gauged.
marked and stamped bv the rectifier.
This is to be done under regulations, ser
ies 7. No. 7. suDDlement No. 2. now in
press and shortly to be issued.
Consequently all assignments of gau
gers for duty at rectifying houses in
gauging spirits after rectification wi l be
revoked at the close of business on Sat
urday, the 13th inst.
Stamps may be issued to rectifieis
upon application therefor, which for the
present may be luide in duplicate, upon
form 237 adapted for that purpose, in
which the packages will ba severally de
scribed by their respective wine and
proor gallons contents, together with the
details of the weighing or gauging, as the
case may be. The serial numbers of the
stanop3 will be entered in column one by
the collector, and the copies disposed of
as now required by regulaiton."
Following are directions for stamping,
etc. The circular is dated Aug 10, 1893,
and is signed by Commissioner John W.
As heretofore stated in The Ahgus,
the above order has been construed so
that the rectifier's gauger gets the benefit
of the dump, which means that when
raw liquors are received for rectifying
the local gauger gauges it and r moves
the stamps. There his duties cease; it
cuts his perquisites in two io the middle.
