repted tbe honor in a brief speech. He

ter. Please convey to my friends
of the convention my heartfelt
appreciation of their wish to bonor
me with a renomination. I feel deeply
grateful for the confidence they repose in
me, and for tbeir wish to tnve it expres
eion in making me once more the party's
candidate. Circumstances, however, make
it absolutely impossible for me to con
aider such a course. Ben T. Cable.
Judge Edmunds then placed Truman
Plantzof Warsaw in nomination for can
didate for congress. Hon. William H.
Neece of McDonough then moved
that Mr. Plantz be nominated by
acclamation. The motion was carried
and Mr. Plantz was so nominated The

Neece to find Mr. Plantz and escort him
to tbe rostrum. He responded at some
length, accepting the nomination.
H. Ii. Bartleson of McDonough was
nominated by acclamation for the sWte
board of equalization. O H., Lloyd of
Mercer watt placed in nomination, but bis
name was withdrawn.
The report of tbe committee on reso
lutions was a-iopted as follows:
The democratic party of the Eleventh
congressional district through its dele
gates in convention assembled, heartily
indorse the platform of principles enun
ciated at the Chicigo convention, and
the re-nomination of that peerless states
man and honorable citizen, Grover Cleve
land of New York and Adlai E. Steven
son of Illinois respectively, for president
and vice president.
The administration by Grover Cleve
land of tbe high office of president for
four years was wise, courageous, hon
est, independent and conservative,
and his nomination for the
third time by representatives of the na
tional democracy, gives special force to
the reforms suggested in bis official mes
seges and his public utterances.
We heartily endorse ana commend the
actions of the democratic state conven
tion held at Sprinfield. the platform
adopted and all the candidates there
named, and pledge to mat matcniess
leader, profound jurist and statesman,
John P. Altgeld, our unswerving fealty
and support in his candidacy for governor.
We congratulate the democracy of the
state upon tbe election of Gen. John M.
Palmer to the United Slates senate.
We hereby express our gratification
over the election to congress in tbii dis
trict in 1890 of Hod. Ben T. Cable, ful
ly believing that his persistent and un
tiring effort in behalf of his constituents
since taking his seat in the national house
of representatives, more than merit the
confidence reposetTin him by bis fellow
That his election as a delegate-at -large
to the national democratic convention.
and also to the position of national com
mitteeman from Illinois, together with
tbe important work assigned on the cam
paign committee at Chicago, is fully in
dicative of his high standing in the coun
cils of the party in both state and nation.
That we have implicit confidence in
his ability in this sphere of usefulness to
our party and country.
We greatly deplore his unwillingness
and inability to become a candidate at
our hands today, believing as we do that
his election would be assured if nomin -ated
without special effort on his part.
The congressional committee was se
lected as follows:
Rock Island L.C. Blanding, Rock Isl

Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb and her com
pany of midgets appear at Harper's
theatre tonight, and the little people will
doubtless be greeted by a large audience.
Tbe Dramatic Star, Seattle, Wash., June
25. 1893. says:
Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb and the Lili
putians closed a very successful eneage
nient at the opera house Friday evening,
having played two evenings, including
two matinees, and when it came to count
ing the receipts thev proved to be tLe
strongest drawing caid that has appeared
in this city for some time past, and we
doubt very much if there is another a:
traction that could draw a3 large mati
ncss as these talented little folks. Toe
performance is a most pleasing one and
is especially at:ractive to children. Mrs.
G n Tom Thumb. Count Magri and
Baron Negri ere surrounded bv some
clever aitUts, among them being Victor
Lee, Charles H. Clark, Florence McMa
bon, Polly Chester, Lena Holt, Johnny
Morris, Charley Djjle and a host of
American and European celebrities, mak
ing in all the biggest little company ever
before tbe public.
John T Kelly, the clever star of the
"McFee of Dublin" company, to be seen
at Harper's theatre next Monday even
ing, as his name implies, is an Irishman
and like a legion of his race, he is fired
with the soul of song and music, the re
s-lt being a number of the most beauti
ful songs and ballads from his pen. The
latest one is "Peggy Cline," now being
sung with enormous success ia "A Trip
to Chinatown .' Like Tom Moore, Mr.
Kelly has written scores of odes and son
nets, which he has carefully preserved,
and when he permits a favored friend to
read them the wonderful poetic part of
the man is apparent.
' Ole Olson," the great Swedish dia'ect
comedy, will be presented at Harper's
theatre next Wednesday evening. There
is always something laughable about tbe
attempts of foreigners to master the En
glish language, and to catch on to Amer
ican slang phrases. Theatre goers have
been given character work in German,
French, Italian, Negro and Irish dialect
to tbeir beans' content, but a Swedish
dialect is comparatively new to tbe stage.
"Ole Olson" brings out the struggles of a
recent importation from Sweden, to Catch
our idioms, and therein lies the novelty
of the performance. Most plays of this
kind are utterly devoid of plot. Not so
with "Ole Olson. In contains an
interesting story which claims the
attention of the spectator through
out the presentation.

Ia view of the dangers of cholera epi
oemic, mayor weasel oi Mouse bas in
structed bis police to notify all residents
of tbe city who are dumping manure in
tbe alleys to clean thetu up at once.
This order applies to any filth found.
If the matter is neglected the guilty par
ties will be arrested and must pay tLe
penalty as prescribed by ordinance.
Health Commissioner Eyster is taking all
the pr"cautions he can in Rock Island in
ordering a general cleaning up of the
city, but owing to the fears of cholera, it
would be an exceedingly wise pre
caution for our mayor to lend
force to the health commission
er's efforts in j ust such a course as is
adopted by Moline's mayor. This is no
time for dilly-dallying, but for action
and for the strict and immediate enforce
ment of all sanitary ordinances.

having coi only won the championship

Rockford. the next best club, on an exhi

with a crippled team. Yesterday's game,
which was the last one, was not very
largely attended, but those who were
there gave tbe boys who nailed the flag
for us all due credit for
their playing. O'Day was back
agin and played the right field, while
'Rickety" Hoffman held down the second
sack, Pat Cahill looking after the left
garden and doing himself proud both in
the field and at the slick. Roberts was
hitting hard again and "Ducky" Hemp
played a brilliant field gu.me, and, in fact,

The Rockford team left for home this

morrow and a beuefit game at home on
Sunday, after whic tbey separate.
The local team ha9 been dis
banded and all the players
will leave during the next few
days for their reeptc ivc homes. George
Nulton's home is in Puoria where he was
formerly employed in a railroad office.
Patsy Ljnch's home is at Denver,
where he always winters, and where he
formerly followed tte irade of a plumber.
Harry O'Day and Frank Roberts both
hail from San Fmr.cieco, where they will
return and eped the winter. "Rickety"
Hoffman claims Peoria as his home, and
he will leave for there shortly. "Ducky
Hemp is a native at S.. Louis, where the
January days will catr'n him staying
close to home. Siu.mie Collins' home
is at London, Can . and he will proba
bly go there to remain during the winter.
Bert Cunningham and Harry Sage are
too, well known to need comment and
will, of course, win'er here. Barteon
our ex pitcher who deserted the team
two weeks auo ti go to Marinette also
lives in Peoria where he will go at tLe
end of the season . Z is and McGuirk
are both in Rock I Urnl.

Patsy Lynch and George Nulton
