Rock Island, 111.
The great republican flag raisins: and
pow-wow took place as advertised at the
corner of Ninth street and Third avenue,
last night. The Sixth ward republican
club marched down to the Flambeau's
headquarters opposite Spencer Square,
where the two organizations formed in
line headed by Bleuer's band, and
marched down to the scene of the flag
raising. The Flambeaus presented a
very neat appearance with their new out
fit, which was about the only thing that
broke the monotony of the dizzy perform
ance. On arrival at the corner of Ninth street
Bleuer's band discoursed some
music, and after a hot
breath from the Flambeaus, the stars
and stripes were hauled up with cheers.
Then the Plow Shop baud played ta-ra-ra
boom-de-Bje and J. B. Oakleaf of Mo
lioe was introduced to the larze crowd
composed mainly of women and children
who had gathered to see the fun. Mr.
Oakleaf's remarks were of the free and
easy variety. He spoke of everything
from the deluge to the Johnstown flood,
and his speech abounded in such stagger
ing statements as "show me a city where
vice and ignorance predominates, and
I'll show you a democratic majority." He
also touched cn the woman's suffrage
question and said they ought to be al
lowed to vote, and then became extreme'
ly personal by remarking that his own
wife knew more than he did, but of
course the crowd didn't care anything
about that and Mr. Oakleaf resumed his
seat shortly after.
W. H- Gest was then brought forward
and made a sort of a Harrison front door
speech to the people of his own ward,
which was mainly devoted to calling the
people's attention to the fltg of the free
as it hung there in its pride. "What
tiolds up that flag?" shouted Mr. Gest,"
meaning, of course, that it was the grand
old party that did it, when a kid over in
the dark yelled btck, "The pole can't
you see? ' and the cruel crowd laughed a
C- J. Searle was next trotted out and
he just cut a large crimson-colored gash
clear around the Second ward. He laid
the democratic perty on bis little dissect
in? table and to his own satisfaction, at
least, he just slashed it every way, .and
after he nad finished there wasn't a per
son in the crowd that didn't believe but
that Searle bad been born to save the
M. M. Sturgeon had the duty assigned
him of breaking up the meeting, and he
walked right into his task with a
will. He .told of the glorious achieve
ments of that party as it has oft been told
before, and of how it loved the laboring
man as no other party did before. His
remarks were quite extended, and be
closed with a sweet good night, after
whiihl. D. Burgh thanked everyone
for their attendance, and the meeting
A Kew Parket.
Such has been the success of the Le
clede Packet company of Burlington in
running their boat, the Pauline, that the
company will put.on a new packet on
the upper river which they have recent
ly purchased from Ohio river parties.
This packet will run out of Burlington
for the upper river with her upper termi
nus probably at Bock Island or Daven
port, although her owners may conclude
to rua her on the lower
river. The intention, however, is to
run an up river boat. The nime of
the craft is Matt F. Allen, a large full
cabin packet, that was originally built
for the Cumberland river, and is believed
to combine the two qualities of speed and
light draft so pre-eminently necessary
for successfully navigating the upper
Mississippi in all stages of water. The
new boat is 145 feet in length and 28 feet
in beam, being nearly 25 feet longer and
eighth feet broader than the Pauline. A
better opinion of the boat's size may
be gained from the fact that she is just
six feet shorter than the Josephine.
A. PalafBl Accident.
Simon Poehlman, a teamster in the em
plop of Stewart & Montgomery, met with
a serious and very painful accident yes
terday. While driving out of a doorway
at the Lime association building on
Twentieth street he was caught in the
frame of the door in such a manner that
he was terribly squeezed before the horses
could be stopped. He was picked up and
taken to bis home in a buggy, where he
was attended by Drs. Bernhardt and
Truesdale, who found that he had sus
tained a fracture of the collar bone near
its junction with the breast bone, which
is a very rare occur an ce. He was made
as comfortable as possible, though be
w lsc"r -Swing from some bruises
about the head. He will probably not
tftj be able to be about for some time.

MK. M'KNIRY'S ADDRESS.
The Remarks of the Next State's At
torney Before the lemoeraiIe Con
The remarks of M. J. McEniry, demo
cratic nominee for state's attorney, be
fore the county convention last Wednes
day, though entirely impromptu, was a
masterly affair. The morning paper
having attempted to misconstrue Mr.
McEniry's remarks, they are herewith
given in full:
It is somewhat of a surprise to me to
be in this manner unanimously chosen
bv this deliberative assembly, the most of
whom I have known for a great many
years and some from my infancy. I was
not an aspirant for this honor at your
hands but, nevertheless, I fully appre
ciate your cocfidecce in calling me to
make a canvass before the people of this
county. The office is one of the most
important in the county and that is con
ferred by a free people. I did not de
sire to become your standard bearer . in
this contest. I have repeatedly advised
my friends not to urge my selection nor
to allow my name to be presented. I am
not an office seeker. I prefer very much
that some other should be called to this
mission, but as you doubtless have known
me so long, and during this time I never
was known to shirk h duty, when
cailed I shall accept. I appreciate the
fact that never since I was born was
there a candidate elected on the demo
cratic ticket in this county on what is
known as a presidential election. So the
task is not a small one, but with your
assistance I will canvass the county as
best we can, and I have considerable
faith in the liberality of thought in this
county, and candidates and principles are
weighed as they are and not what cer
tain political bosses would have the peo
ple belieye they are.
Not having sought this nomination, I
have made no bargain, barter, trade or
pledge in order to obtain it, nor will 1 to
get votes at the polls. If I should be
elected I shall perform the duties of the
office to the verv best of my humble abil
ity, and in its administration I shall know
no political party, class, clique, faction,
nationality, creed of condition.
All persons having business to conduct
with that official if it should be your hum
ble servant will find the duties of the
office, performed in the interest of jus
tice according to law, and the best for
tbe county. "'A public office is a public
trust" and if I should be elected I will be

club. Tbe services of an attorney
have been retained, and an attempt will

count of marital difficulties and worrv
over a facial diefigurement, ending her
life by taking 25 cents worth of mor

yesterday afternoon took a like quantity
of the same drug, but the fact came to
be known in time to permit of bis life
being prolonged, it being necessary to
take him out into tbe street and walk him
back and forth to prevent his falling
asleep, and thus assisting the deadly
drug in its wotk. After having been
treated to some extent at home. Parsons
was taken to tbe home of his parents,
