Illinois in the Forthcoming Xa
The Itr&iirlt Hradqnartera or the Dtm
orratin Katlonal Committee In
dilea. o-t'ontrrtuman Cable.
As shown bjr the New York dispatches,
at the mteting of the campaign commit
tee of the democratic national committee
Thursday, it was decided to establish
headquarters at Chicago, the territory as
signed to the same embracing seven west
ern states, namely: Illinois, Iowa, Wis
consin, Michigan, Minnesota, North Da
kota and South Dakota. The Herald
says: "The Btven western states named
are placed in entire charge of a subcommittee-
This subcommittee was ap
pointed today and consists of Messrs.
Dickinson of Michigan, Cable of Illinois
and Wall of Wisconsin. Mr. Dickinson
was named first on the committee by
Chairman Ilarrity, and this fact appar
ently makes him the chairman and active
man. But Mr. Dickinson is also chair -man
of the campaign committee of the
national committee aijd will be needed in
New York tV.e gr. ntcr part of the time.
It is. therefor., c-xpeote-t that the other
members of the buheounnittee. Cable and
Wa'l will have the bulk of the Chicago
work upon their shoulders. They are
both capable men, active and enthusias
tic, and good organizers. The probabil
ities are that Congressman Cable will le
the most active member at the Chicago
office, although the details of the orgau
izaiion have not been decided upon and
will not be until Mr Dickinson recovers
from the indisposition from which he is
now suffering and meets his follow mem'
bers of the committee in consultation. It
is expected that Messrs. Cable and Wall
will proceed to Chicago next week, open
headquarters and organize a force of
The establishment of the Chicago
headquarters means the carrying of the
campaign actively into Illinois, and is due
to Committeeman Cable's exertions.
The Herald says:
Congressman Cable was delighted at
the decision of the committee t estab
lish western offices. "The very fact
thit toe national committee has pid this
compliment to the democrats of the west
will have a good effect, he said. "West
ern democrats were never before so
much in earnest nor so aggressive in
halfadozn western states They will
fjel thu the national organ. zilion is
with them in their struggle for wnat has
been the republican stronghold. Of
course the Chicago headquarters will be
subsidiary to and auxiliary ith the na
tional ccmiLittee rather than independ
ent of it, and working in complete har
mony with the national committee.
"Sbfct; committees are of too much im
portance, nre too vitat to our success, to
be ignored, and it will be the duty of the
organization which may be established at
the western office to help the state com
mittees in every way in their power. I
know something of the situation in the
seven we-Jtern states which the subcom
mittee is too look after, and I have little
doubt that we shall carry a number of
these states for Cleveland and Stevenson.
In Illinois and Wisconsin the outlook is
really encouraging, as shown by the fact
that the republican leaders are already
much elarmed about the result of the
elections in those states. The west is
destined to play an important part in the
restoration of the democratic party to
power at Washington."
Labor Iay Arrangement.
At the rtgular weekly meeting of the
Labor day committees at Hillier's hall
last night a good attendance from both
Moline and Davenport was present, and
the reports from t le different committees
show that the woik of making arranges
merits for an elaborate obseryance of the
day here is getting along in a yery' grati
fying manner. A uniform rate of one
and one-third fare has been secured on
all railroads and as the event has been
thoroughly advertised throughout the sur
roundingcountry amuch larger crowd than
has ever before attended is expected. Com
mittees were g appointed to visit the
owners of factories and mills and ask
them to close down on that day so as to
allow their employees to tahe part in the
celebration. AH business men and fac
tories are requested to take part in the
Tjarade and people living along the line
of march can show their appreciation dt
the workingman's holiday oy decorating
their homes for the occasion. It will
probably eclipse anything in this line
The canoe regatta to be held at Moline

W. C. Blanchard, the deaf mute, who
was nearly killed by being knocked down

met with another misfortune yesterday
evening that will effect him for some time
to come. Blanchard is quite thrifty and
had invested his summer's earnings in a
house boat, which he had built just be
low the water works building. It has just
been completed and he had moved, and
last night on returning from a trip down
town he discovered it to be fire. Blan
chard made an effort to save at least his
clothing, but the fire was under too great
a headway and he found it impossible to
save any of his belongings. A still alarm
was turned into fbe fire department
which responded in excellent time, but
were only needed in keeping the fire from
cars near by. The loss will not be much.
but it falls heavy on Blanchard, who
seems to be particularly unfortunate.

The home team left over the C, M. &

Nearly all the members of the o!d Jol-
iet club have secured new berths. Mc
Vicker, Hofer and Mahoney are the only
ones still in doubt as to their naw fields
of labor. The Southern league has cap-
tured all the men so far. Murray and
Jones go to Atlanta, Gi., having re
ceived an advantageous offer from that
point. Sharpe, Fisher and Weihl have
already left for Montgamery. Carroll
and Donnelly go to Macon and Nichol
son to Chattanooga.
If there is a league anywhere in this
vicinity next yeir, then surely Rock Isl-
and-Moline and Rockford ought to be in
it. Such pluck as is being displayed by
the management of both teams speaks
volumes for the cities they represent.
