HOW FIFER FARED.
Honored as Governor But Not
as a Politician.
HIS RECEPTION IN EOCK ISLAND.
Met By the Hou Ami Kseorted to the K
pullien tleadquxrters Where Kol.by
Bennett Ijys Down the Law to Him The
Parade This Afternoon Speech Making
And Other Proceeding.
Governor Joseph W. Fifer is being
honored by Rock Island today. The city
i enily attired in respect to the state's
executive. Rock Island never fails to do
honor to those upon whom political good
fortune has smiled, and tsday bids Gov
ernor Fifer welcome, notwithstanding
that he comes on a purely political mis
sion and has not before visited the city as
tbe state's executive, his last appearance
here being four years ago when he was
actuated by the same purpose that
brings him today the solicitation of
f ivors in the way cf notes.
Where Were the Crowds?
In view of Mr. Wells' representations
as to immense crowd? 20,000 people
mire or less and his urcent desire that
tbe chutcli! s establish lunch rooms, the
ladies of a Dumber of, the churches ac
cented Mr. Wills' advice and went into
business and they lost. The simple ex
planation of the cause of the failure of
such enterprising ventures is that Mr.
Wells deceived them. The people were
not here. They did net come. Com
pared with any previous political effort
on the part of either party, today's dem
onstration was tbe most dismal failure
that has ever been seen in Rock Island.
But it was not the republican parly's
fault, cor was it Rork Inland's fault.
Tbe party leaders had been busily en
gaged with preparations for weeks, and
the event had been extensively ad
vrtised. Everybody was invited to dec
orate in honor of the occasion, and the
response was pretty general, irrespective
of party aftiliations. As has been said
Rock Island did its share, but where
were the crowds? They simply were not
in it. They did not con.e. The truth
has not been slighted, unless it be to over
estimate matters, wh in it is said 2tKI peo
pie was the extent of outside people in the
city today. Campare this sbowini; with
the outpouring of four years ago when
Fifer was firs', runnict;, and one may
imagine how tbe wind is blowing, po
litically epetikins. in Illinois this year.
The tiovernor and I'rty Arrive.
Governor Fifer and his party arrived in
Rock Island at 11 o'clock on a special
train over the C..B. & Q . .consisting of a
coach and engine which brought them
from Peoria. The gubernatorial special
was aiet at tbe Bur.intg'.on depot by a
committee of republicans, composed of
Howard Wells, Mayor William McCono
chie. Senator W. F. Crawford. C. L
Walker. Henry Carse. Dr. J. W. Stewart,
B. C. Keator, Cipt. T. J. Robinson and
Representative W. B. Payne. On Doard
the train were: Governor Joseph W. Fifer,
Lieutenant Governor L. B. Ray, Secre
tary of State I. N. Pear&on. H. L. Hertz,
candidate for state treasurer, and Hon P.
S. Post of Peoria. The distinguished
party was conveyed in car
riages to republican headquarters,
on Third avenue opposite Spencer Square
where the faithful flocked. and where a re
ception was held. The leading ligh-softhe
party were introduced, and it was during
these formalities that the incident of tbe
morning took place, when Bobby Ben
nett pushed himself to the front and
being presented to the governor
commanded his undivided attention for
at least 15 minutes in laying down what
should be his reply to Judge Altgeld's ar
raignment of tbe A. P. A. auxiliary to re
publicanism. Bobby would permit no
one to interrupt him until be bad dis
charged this duty, and the governor
seemed to be highly grateful for the in
structions tht.a given.
After the reception the governor re
paired to the Harper where, with the
others of his party he dined, and then tbe
executive took a nap preparatory to this
Thla Afternoon Procession.
The procession this afternoon formed
on Twentysfourth street and Fourth av
enue, under the direction of Capt. J. M.
Beardsley and aides, and moved through
the principal streets to Sixth street and
back to court house square, where the
speeches are now being made by Gov.
Fifer and others, tbe column being made
up as follows:
Light Guard Band.
Col, Hjalinar Kohler, mounted.
Squad of 15 horsemen.
Carriages bearing Governor Fifer, C. H. Deere,
MaVor McConochie and Ur C. B. Kloyon.
Twelve carriages of local iioliticians and citiaens.

A dor.en or mo-e was .ns bearing c'tUens .
Messrs. Morris Rosen Held and C H .Deere
accompanied the gubernatorial pviy from
"Vote for Free Trade and Walk" was
one of the brilliant inscriptions.
Bobby Bennett was in bis element
when he had the governor's ear.
The decorations were very elaborate
and very nice but for what purpose!
Dr. Kinyon rode in tbe carriage with the
governor. That article in the Union this
morning did it.
Tbe ' 'caravan" came, but it was con
fined to the "one ring" free show, and
didn't draw a crowd worth a cent.
After all if the two Moline manufac
turers who accompanied the governor
from Peoria had been out of the proces
sion, what would there have been left?
Tonight the party will give vent to its
feelings in the way of a torchlight pro
cession in Moline, after which Hon. F. X.
Schoonraaker of New York will speak.
J L Pickering, one of the best known
newspaper men in the state, and who,
representing a syndicate of republican
papers, is traveling over the state with
Governor Fifer and party, called at The
Argus office this morning.
That Dr. Kinyon should evince so re
markable an interest in Governor Fifer is
explainable in part by tbe fact of tbe
present executive's partiality to the doc
tor's school of medicine, as always shown
when opportunity afforded, to honor the
STREET CAR CHANGES.
Tickets Not liooil After Today on the Syu
fllrate Line The ltrldpe I.ine.
The Davenport & Rock Island Street
Railway company makes an important
move tomorrow. Treasurer Lardcer an
nounces that beginning with the first of
the month the company abolishes the
ticket system of fares, entirely. Hereaf
ter no tickets will be sold by the street
railway company and ths nickel alone
will go. In abolishing the ticket sys
tem the street car company adopts the
practice of tbe systems ii many of the
larger cities. Tne six-tickets-for-a-quarter
plan was adopted by tbe company of
its own volition, and now with the con
stant increase in the expenses of opera
tion, including paving, etc., the com
pany thinks that it can return to the nickel
sysU m without the public feeling it seri
ously, while the difference in the end to
the company will be considerable and it
greatly needs all it can get in return for its
heavy investments in the tri-ciiies. The
Davenport Business Men's association
some time ago advised the company to
abolish tbe ticket system as a busisesa
move, and tbe company feels that consid
ering the improved service, the substitu
tion of electricity for mule power, and
rapid transit in place of slow goin? past
methods, tbe public will have no com
plaints to make of tbe change in the sys
tem of fares. Conductors will hereafter
accept no tickets except those given out
by the company in complimentary book:
form, and commutation tickets for chil
dren under 5 years, which will be sold
at a rate of 10 for 2 cents, 'and
punched by the conductor as presented.
Commencing tomorrow Supt. Schnit
ger announces that cats on the bridge
line will run west on Third avenue from
