Congressman Ben T. Cable arrived in
Chicago yesterday, and at once began
looking about for the headquarters from
which the campaign in the west will be
conducted by the democratic national
"Mr. Dickinson will be here the first of
the week," said Mr. Cable, "and until
then no consultations will be held. The
only thing that worries us at present is
the locations of our headquarters. I
cannot ea definitely where they will be
until noon tomorrow. I think we will
reach a decision by that time."
"When do you expect to have your
offices in working order?"
"Not later than Tuesday."
"Will any one of you be placed at the
head of the western branch?"
"No; we are all under Chairman Har
rity, and have each equal authority.
There will be no hitch on that score, as
we are in pnfect hsrmr.ny, and it is dem
ocratic success we seek, not personal
"What in your opinion will be the re
sult of the sub-ht adquarters?"
"The very fact that the national com
mittee has paid this compliment to the
west will have a good effect. Western
democrats, who were never before so
much in earnest nor so aggressive in half
a dozen states, will feel that the national
organization is with them in their Btrug
gle with what has been the republican
stronghold. Of course, the local head
quarters will be subsidiary and auxiliary
to the national committee, rather than
independent of that orgaLization. There
will be no trouble about maintaining bar-,
monioue relations either with the nation
al committee or with the various slate
committees. The state committees are of
too n.uch importance, are too vital to our
sacct-ss lobe ignored, and it will be tbe
duty of the organization which may be
estiiMiehtd at the western office to help
the state committees in every way in
their pow r."

will have six or eight lart;e room. The

We have a task to do and will do it re
gardless of expense."
"Wb.it states will you devote the ma
jor portion of your time to?"
'Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wiscon
sin, Iowa and Minnesota, and such others
as the national committee may tee fit to
"Now know something about the
outlook in the seven states mentioned,"
said Mr. Cable, and I have little doubt
taat we shall carry a number of them for
Cleveland and Stevenson. In this sta.e
and Wisconsin the outlook is especially
encouraging, as is shown by the fact that
the republican leaders are already much
alarmed about tbe result of the election
in these states. The west is destined to
play an important part in the restoration
of the democratic party to power in
"What particular show does Illinois
stand of moving into the democratic col
umn?" "Excellent. We have great hopes of
Illinois. Judge Altgeld is as good as
elected now and we feel much encour
aged about the electoral vote. Wiscon
sin is ours sure. There is certainly doubt
about Minnesota and Iowa, but the re
publicans will have to fight for their
lives. We will have nine of Michigan's
electoral votes, and everybody knows
that Indiana is safely democratic."
"What is the outiook in New York?
"Bright; very bright. All the party is
united, and Tammany will fight as it has
never fought before."
"Will the people's party affect the re
sult in the southern stales?"
"No one can deny that the people's
party has made great progress, but not
enough to hurt us. You may rest as
sured of one thing we will make a hot.
aggressive fight, and make every inch of
territory in the states assigned us debat
able ground. It will be a campaign of
education, and by this time next week
tans of campaign literature will be
mailed daily from tbe Chicago branch.
The republicans will earn what they get
in our territory."

fixed for finances? '

The Mpieltl Meeting-of the Hnnlrlpat
Itndy Last WiKht Sidewalks to be
At the council meeting last night Aid .
Guyer brought up the subject of laying
numerous sidewalks in the Seventh ward
by special taxation, and the subject of
making a general ordinance to include
tbe whole city was then discussed by
Aids. Guyer, Schroeder, Corken, Evans,
Kennedy and Huesing, and it was finally
decided to have a special meeting next
Thursday night for the purpose of draws
ing up a general ordinance. The alder
men of each ward will report a list of
such walks in their respective wards, and
the whole ordinance will be drafted
from the lists reported. It is a most
commendable move on the part of the
council as the walks in many parts
of the city have needed attention far
sometime. While Rock Island is much
better off in tbe matter of sidewalks
than many cities of greater size, yet
there is no reason why they cannot be
made better and walks laid where there
are not any at present.
In the matter of accepting the new
waterwoiks pump the report of Superin
tendant Murrin was heard, after which a
general discussion followed and it was
agreed to refer it to the superintendent,
mayor and a mechanical expert to in
spect. A bid for the proposed new sca'e house
on Market Square was received form Sil
vers & Anderson, which was the only one
presented and it was accordingly referred
to the finance ctmmittee.
It begins to look now as though the pro
posed building for Market Square would
not be completed this fall, at least Ziot in
time for the political meetings, as nearly
every contractor is busy and will not bid
on the work.

Health Commissioner Eyster's
Views as to Cholera
Inland, cities Will Karape ir the Sea
Ports Are froperly Protected
Precaution as to
"Cholera is entirely an infectious dis
ease" said Health Commissioner Eyster in
commenting this morning on the existence
of tbe plague in Europe, and there is no
particular danger of its being communi
cated to the United States unless it be
through carelessness or failure to prop
erly watch incoming steamships and sail
ing vessels from Europe. In other words
the disease will have to break out in the
sea ports before it reaches the
interior towns. Once the in
fection reaches this country,
however, and tbe contagion gets into the
atmosphere it will spread; then there is
no telling where it will end. As I re
gard it, though, there is Dothing to in
dicate anything of a cholera epidemic
unless the disease is transported to this
country. The first great d jty at present
is to guard the sea ports."
When asked as to the fears of tbe
spread of small-pox, Dr Eyster said he
thought the state board of health was
taking the proper precautions to
prevent its spreading, and if tbe warn
ing relative to vaccination
was heeded the disease would be held in
check. The great trouble is" the doctor
said, "neglect in the matter of vaccina
tion. While parents are required by law
to have their children vaccinated before
they can enter school, thry are Negligent
In having the older children revaccin
ated, as they should be if they have not
been within la;e years."
