The republicans of South Rock Island
made a desperate effort to bold a meet
ing last night at the Sontb Rock Island
town hall, but there not being a cor
poral's guard present postponement to an
indefinite time in the future was neces
sary. The cholera scare mentioned in The
Argcs last night has not yet developed
any serious consequences and probably
will not. The report was circulated that
two Belgians had come to Moline from an
infected steamer and that some more were
expected here. The Moline authorities
have no knowledge of the arrival of any
such ix migrants there and investigation
here fails to show any confirmation of the
rumors afloat. There are a large nun
ber of cases of typhoid fever in and about
the city and more are developing. Diph
theria has also developed considerably
though no serious consequences are an
ticipated from any source. The city is in
a good condition from a sanitary stands
point, wb'ch is at least encouraging..
