euthuaiasm disoiaved on cither side that
there has been in previous national cam
paigns. Brass bands and torches are all
right, but they don't amount to much.
The people are thinking this year."
The arrangements for tbe torchlight
turnout tonight have all been completed,
and will be participated in by clubs from
Davenport, Molioe and this city. Tbe
clubs from here will form and march up
to Twenty-third street where the Moline
clubs will be met and the line will form

Twentieth street, north on Twentieth

Sixteenth street to Harper's theatre- The
clubs from Davenport will be met by
those from this city on Eighteenth street
promptly at 7:15, after which they will
march to Twenty sthird street.

A song by Misses Sadie and Lena Rxh

closed the meeting. Tbe hall was
nicely decorated, the meeting proving
one of the best of the campaign in Rock
Island county so far.
"The Old Feud Buried" is the way the
Union of this city heads an article in
which it makes a labored effort to show
that Major McClaughry is friendly to
Col. Marsh now and is urging bis friends
to support him. One F. A. Warden, of
Rushville. recently wrote to Major Mc
Claughry at Chicago, asking him if it
really was so that he was not acting
friendly to Col Marsh's candidacy, and if
the spark of the old feud was actually
still lingering in his eye. To the pre at
surprise of Mr. Warden Mr. McClaughry
replied that it was not so that be was
holding spite against Mr. Marsh, that he
wanted to see him elected and that he
hoped all his friends were supporting
him. Of course Major McClaughry would
be apt to reply that be was still hostile
to Col. Marsh. TLat would be very nat
ural; but contrary to expectations be
wrote the reply outlined, and this tbe
Union hastens to publisk, and after tat-
feying tbe editor of the Rasfcville
Times, urges bim to copy tbe same
that the lower end .-of the district
may be led to believe vhat all is right be
tween Marsh and McClaughry. Mr
McClaMghry'' reputation of course, is
that of an.trawary individual whownakea all
his ideas and thoughts public; that is the
reason he is chief of police of Chicago
Msj. McClaughry would be aajreat pol

he knew and .just tow he felt. 'It will be
