The flag raising at South Rock Islai.d
on Saturday night was a complete cue
cess, and was carrie-J out witn Tim and
enthusiasm characteristic of democracy
all over the state this year. A large del
egation from the Young Men's 8teveneon
club, together with one from the Sunny
sides, boarded a Milan car and were met
at Center Station by the Plo Company
band and the South R jck 11 and Demo
cratic club with torches an i eecorted to
the scene of the fl ig raising.
Two long poles had been erected, on
in the yards of Ed. Jens acd the other
across the road at Henry Dingeldioe'e
and after the crowd had reache 1 the spot
toe Dana struck up America, ana is a
grand illumination of red fire was touched
off the handsome new flig was hauled up
amidst the deafening cheers of st-viral
hundred who had assembled to Co Losvr
to "old glory." Af.er the chetrine, had
subsided. President George Richmond, of
the flouts Rock Inland dercocraiic cu
called the meeting to order, aai intro

He began his rem ris by rtf iring to
the appropriateness of raising the nation'
flag as symbolic of the struggle of th
country in early days in resisting ur jist
taxation the same as the people of the
country are doing today. He then spoke
of the attempts of the tariff t titters of
the republican party to have the people
beliere that the tariff of today was the
same as that advocated in early days bj
Jefferson and Madison, saytcg that was
an icsult to American intelligence for
men to get up and try to tell the people
that kind of nonesense. Mr. H irst later
entered into an able discussion of the var
ious phases of the existing tariff laws and
presented many arguments giving undis
pu table facts and figures in support of bis
statements. His address was marked by
its force and the speaker a earnestness
which carried with it conviction.
M. J. McEoiry. democratic candidate
for slate's attorney was next introduced,
and spoke of the fitness of it being left
to tke democrats to swing the first fl ig
that bad ever waived across the old Mi
lan road. On this he congratulated them
acd afterward entered into an extended
discussion of the currency question and
led his bearers through the different coun
tries of the civilized world, explaining the
relations of each on the silver question-
He afterward spoke at some length on
the tariff issue and of its effect on both
the farmer and the lab?ring man. (His re
marks were clean cut and to the po nt,
and like those of Mr. Hurst were fre
quently interrupted by loud applause.
The speakers addressed the crowd from
the front porch of the residence of Ed
Jens, whose house was gaily illuminited
as was Mr. Dtngeldine's also. On the,
road out the residences of Joseph Block
inger, John A. Pearson, Cnarles Bow
man and others were illuminated, and
were loudly cheered by the delegations
from this city. It was an enthusias ic
affair all around, and Ehows that the
democrats of South Rock Island 1 ke
those all over the state, are right in line
for the fight this fall. The meeting
closed with rot, sing cheers for the na
tional ticket, acd Aligeld, Fiaaz and the
Congressman - Springer speaks at Mo-
lire Wednesday nigbt, and it will be one
of the great events of the campaign.

In its iseue of y sterday morning the
Davenport Le-idtr announces its occu
pancy of its new home at 113 East
Second street, where an entire building
was recently leased by the Leader, and
where Manager C. W. Schlegel has dis
plated bit ideas of what should properl)
constitute a newspaper office. by remodel
ing the building throughout, acd fitting
it to meet the various nqtircments of s
modern newspaper establishment. The
budding is three stories high, the first
floor being occupied by the counting
t oom, with press room acd storage room
back r fit, the second story by the ed'
torinl and reportorial rooms, and the
third by the composing rooms. Eth
floor contains toilet rooms and all
modern conveniences. Ea:h department
is connected by a system of tubes, and
verbal communication may be had with
anyone in the building at a moment's
notice. An elevator runs from the base
ment to the top flxsr- The entire build
ing is well lighted and heated by steam.
The Leader is the youngest member of
the Davenport newspaper family, and
through enterprise and appreciation of
the requisites of a modern newspaper, it
has already worked its way to the front
rank. The Argus feels peculiar in
terest and satisfaction in the success of
the Leader, because Rock Island men are
