Do. Q. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
trhieh I um acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider th real
iuterest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying thi-ir loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
aprnts down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."

merits of Castoria has woa us to look with
favor upon it."

FLOATED A FLAG.
Saturday Night's Demonstration in
the Second Ward.
Tbe Down Town Cable lab Dees It
self troo end at. J. HtEslry
makes Splendid Speech.
It has now developed that tbe republi
cans of the Second ward don't have to
even go out of their own precinct to get
pointers on how to raise the nation's
flag and do it with enthusiasm, too. Tbe
largest crowd by far tbat has assembled
at any political meeting in the city this
vear was present at tbe Second Ward
Cable club flag raising on Saturday night
at the corner of Tenth street and Third
avenue, where a beautiful 40-foot flag, to
which the names of Cleveland and Stev
eDSon and a handsome portrait of each
of those distinguished gentlemen were
appended was swung to tbe breeze.
The Second Ward club first met at the
headquarters, wbere over 100 of the
democracy formed in line bearing torches
and Chinese lanterns, and headed by the
Plow Company band marched up Second
avenue to Market Square, then on Third
avenue to the Turner hall, where they
were joined by the Third Ward demo
cratic club and the line marched back to
the scene of the flag raising. On arriv
ing there the preliminaries were arranged
and then as the band struck up the famil
iar strains of "The Red, White and Blue,"
the stars and stripes were hauled up
amidst the lusty cheeriDgof over 500 work
ingmen. To add to tha beauty of the
scene a large illumination of red fire was
touched off, and as tbe beautiful banner
floated gracefully in the evening breeze
cheer after cheer went up from the bun
dreds of patriotic hearts who bad gath
ered to do honor to the nation's
colors. It was indeed an en
thusiastic meeting, and if anyone blushed
it was one of those wbo in tbe language
of the poet, "came to scoff and remained
After the cheering had subsided. Aid.
Henry Kinner called the meeting to or
der from a platform decked with Chinese
lanterns tbat bad been provided, and in
troduced M. J. McEniry of Moline, the
demccratic candidate for state's attorney,
who for nearly an hour held the closest
attention of the assembled people in a
thorough discussion of tbe issues tbat
enter into tbe present campaign. lie
began bis remarks by expressing his
pleasure at being present on such a pa
triotic occasion and the appropriateness
of raising tbe flag in calling into action
tbat great attribute of the American peo
pie, taking occasion at the same time to
pronounce a fitting eulogy on those two
men for whom tbe public, irre
spective of party affiliation has such
profound respect. G rover Cleveland and
AdlaiE. .Stevenson. Mr. McEniry as
surcd ibis hearers that he was not out in
a mud throwing campaign and that he
would throw no slurs at anyone, be
would, however, explain wherein tbe
republican party had acted unfairly and
would certainly bold it responsible for
tbe planks embodied in its platform. Be
then entered into an earnest discussion of
the existing tariff laws under tbat mon
strosity, tbe McKinley bill confiniDg him'
self more particularly to those portions
which affect the workingmen, of which
bis audience was mainly composed. Ilia
remarks were plain and to the point, and
were frequently interrupted by enthusi
astic approval of bis bearers. Later the
speaker mentioned what a democratic
house bad done in the way of passing
measures to.relieve tbe people of this bur
den of taxation and tbe inevitable result
they met in being pigeonholed in a re
publican senate. In closing Mr. Mc
Eniry turned bis guns on tbe infamous
Force bill and explained tbe intents and
purposes of tbe proposed measuie and
tbe indignities to which some wou'd be
subject should it become a law. His rea
marks were very comprehensive and
deeply impressed bia hearers, the closing
remarks being widely applauded.
Aid. Kinner then made a few remarks
in which he referred patriotically to the
handsome new flag, and as it was already
quite late no more speaking was indulged
in ana tse crowd dispersed, it was an,
occasion very pleasant to all and well

President Ceaderbaelt'e Reply.
President Louderback, of tbe street
car company, has written to Pres
ident Smith, of the Davenport Busi
ness Men's association, declining to con
sider the unreasonable proposition of the
Davenport Business Men's association
conceding certain rights to tbe company
on condition that in future other compan
ies may have tbe use of tbe syndicate
tracks on the percentage system. Mr.
Louderback's position is very reasonable.
"In order that there may be no unnec
essary work done, or time expended un
der the impression that we would accept
an impossible proposition, we stile at
once, tbat we could not consider for a
moment, the operation of the Second
street tracks from Scott to Warren streets
with a condition imposed, that at any
time in the future, another company
could come in and have the joint use of
our tracks, at simply one-half toe cost, or
at any other price. Our franchises are
very short lived, considering our im
mense outlay, and if we carry the busi
ness through tbe period we are sinking
money, we are justly entitled to what
ever profits might accrue in the future,
during the life of our franchise. "
No business man in Davenport would
undertake any business on such a basis,
neither would anyone else. Does anyone
suppose for an instant that Mr. Peterson
would have built bis store and stocked it
with goods, and developed a large busi
ness at an immense loss, and when once
established on a paying basis allow a
competitor, of whom be knows nothing,
(and to be selected by others) to come in
and share bis business at onehalf origi
nal cost. The cases are parallel, except
that we are using the public streets, for
which we haye and are paj ing heavy
taxes for paving, as well as on our ac
tual property, and giving a service way
beyond what the city is actually sup
porting, as shown by our statement."
Davenport would serve its own best
interests by either giving the street car
company what it wants or leaving it
alone entirely, to solve its own salvation.
To offer to treat it fairly and at the same
time to impose an unreasonable condi
tion is simply holding off the inevitable.
The sooner Davenport ends its street
railway fight tbe better for Davenport.
Tbe syndicate has paid dearly for all it
has obtained in Davenport or anywhere,
and that city should adopt tbe example
of Rock Island and Moline and not only
permit tbe company to manage its own
affairs, but to offer some degree of friend
liness and protection, rather than op
pression and antsgociem.
