YOUNG MEN'S CLUB.
An Active Political Organization
It is to Be Sure.
IT BEARS STEVENSON'S NAME.
Last Nlhf M et-t in K And the Part It Is Pro
poned to Take in the Coming Campaign
The I'ntfbrma Adopted The Increased
Membership PlnK Hats for lUO at Least.
There was a rousing meeting of the
young democracy of the city at the rooms
of the Young Men's Stevenson club last
night. The clnb started out one week
ago with about 40 members and when it
came time to call the meeting to order
last evening the two large rooms were
literally packed with enthusiastic young
democrats. A reference to the roll book
showed that in the neighborhood of 120
had signed their names to become mem
bers of the club.
President Huesing was in the chair, and
encouraging reports were heard from the
different committees appointed at the
last meeting. The soliciting committee
appointed to soiic t funds among the
older democrats mule a most gratifying
report, and have also pledges that will
put the organization on a sound financial
basis. A rt;port from the committee ap
pointed to arrange for providing the
club with silk hats and such other uni
form as was thought proper, reported
heving ordered 6 dozen silk hats which
would have been sufficient at the time,
but the club bad since grown so that the
same committee was instructed to make
the order 100 hate, but by the time
meeting adjourned nearly 20 more had
signed the roll. The committee also re
ported favorably on providing the club
with black cape coats, canes and badges,
and were accordingly i: structed to make
arrangements for tbe latter.
As the club also contains a large num
ber of einpers the initiative steps toward
organizing a glee club were taken, and
the result will no doubt be some vocal
musij for the campaign. It was also
decided that upon a call at
any time from Pre-sidnet Huesing
the club would meet at Turner hall,
where it will be given some pointers
on military tactics so that it will make a
belter appearance. l'be secretary read
an invitation from the democrats of
South Rock Island inviting the club to
participate in a grand flg raiting there
next Saturday night. The invitation
was accepted, and the club decided to at
tenl if tbe uniforms arrive by that time.
I he iare attendance last night and the
growing interest sows that the organiza
tion is destined to be one of the strong
est of its kind in this vicinity. The
rooms have been handsomely decorated
the wall being ornamented with por
traits of the party leaders, and everything
is being done to make it pleasant for
Cowden Maket a Race.
Articles of agreement were signed yes-
terday between J.'.hnny Cowden. Rock
Island's crack sprinter and Harry Hill
who is being backed by Davenporters for
a 100-yard sprint, which will b-s on
Wednesday, Oct. 5, either in this city or
Davenport. The match is for $500 a sMe
Ytsterday S100 was placed in the hands
of J. T. O'Connor, who is the stake
bolder, and f 150 more will be put up
next Saturday, the rt maining amount to
be forthcoming cn tbe day of the race
According to the agreement Shef
field rales are to govern
the match, which will be from a pistol
shot start and will be run between 3
and 4 o'clock, p. m. Hill as he is
known, claims to bail from nowhere in
particular but apparently has plenty of
backing, and says bis friends wiil be oa
band the day of the race with plenty of
money. Cowden is too well known to
need an introduction, and it is needless to
say has plenty of frienda who will back
him agairst "Cookoo" Collins or any
one else, and tbe result will no doubt
be an interesting event.
News was received this morning which
will carry sorrow to many hearts in Rock
Island. It was tbe intelligence of the
death of Mrs. T. W. Beck with of Ster
ling, who breathed her last Saturday
night. The deceased was 33 years of
age, and it- was last summer during tbe
Knights Templar conclave at Denver,
that Mrs. Beckwith, as one of tbe Sir
Knight party of Sterling, made the ac
quaintance of those composing tbe Rock
Inland Templar party, and brief as was
the association of 13 days, all who met
the lady there were impressed with her
sweet and gentle nature, and feelings
aud ties of friendship were formed that
death will not sever. Words of sym
pathy that come from the heart will go to
the afflicted husband and children. Sir
Knight Mack of Everts commandery.wbo
had charge of the Sir Knights Templar
party to Denver and return, ordered
that a suitable floral design be sent to tbe
family on the occasion of tbe funeral as
Everts commandery's tribute.

Peter Prey's canvass for the office of

The democrats of Edgington are to
have a meeting tonight for the purpose
of forming a democratic club. Arrange
ments are in progress for a rally in the
near future, when speeches will be made.
M. J. McEniry, democratic candidate
for state's attorney, is gaining votes all
over tbe county every day. On Friday
evening be addressed a big meeting at
Coal Valley, and Saturday evening he
spoke to a trtmendous outpouring at
Tbe republicans of Edgington a week
ago Saturday night floated a Harrison
and Reid flag diagonally across the main
street of the village, suspending it from
a rope attached to poles reaching 40 feet
from tbe ground. On last Saturday
night tbe democrats secured two hickory
poles 77 feet high and eleva'ed tbe Cleve
land and 8tevenson standard 37 feet
above the republican banner. The dem
ocrats down that way as everywhere, can
generally go the republicans one better
every time they want to.
The local republicans are making great
preparations for the Fifer day exercises
next Friday. If they don't have a dem
onstration it won't be their fault. But
it will not be of a ppontaneous nature.
It will be forced, regardless of the under
current of opposition to Fifer and bis
political ring which is sc strongly preva
lent in Rock Island. The republ cans
are in the habit of depending upon noise
and bluster and their Friday blowout
will not count for much It is argument
that goes in these days and consequently
tbeyare decidedly not in it.

An Error and the Result.
Through a typographical error The
Argus announced last evening that
grapes would be sold at M. Arnold's
grocery at 25 cents a basket. It should
have read 35 cents a basket, but the mis
use of one figure taught Mr. Arnold the
advantage or it might be said in this
single case the disadvantage of adver
tising in The Argus The demand for
those 25 cents a basket grapes was
greater than he had made any cacula
tions for, and the worst of It was that
everybody expected tbem at 10 cents
less than Mr. Arnold had planned to sell
them at. Ho was equal to the emer
gency, however, and no one was disap
pointed. He let tbem go at tbe figure
quoted, and Thr Argus, which had
caused tbe misunderstanding this room
ing made proper reparation te Mr. Ar
nold. Joseph Ruby, of Columbia. Pa , suffer
