Edgington Wednesday night, at Moline
Thursday night, and Cordova Friday
night. In all these towns preparations
are in progress for enthusiastic demon

the democrats of the lower end of the

years ago, again asking them to
put him into tfflce, is burdtning the
the community by bis presence again to
day. What this individual of many po
litical reverses may hope to gain by ao
many visits to Rock Island county it is
difficult to discern. He certainly cannot
expect to gain anything by contrasting
himself with Truman Plan's. One is the
representative of the common people
plain, unostentatious, standirg for a prin

conceited, standing for self. The latter
is not tbe democratic candidate.

A Sad Search for a Missing
A LETTER FOUND BY FRIENDS.
A. L.. Moore, of Florence, Minn., Here to
Try and Find Some Trace of His Brother,
Who Disappeared at Port Brron Several
Months Ago Searching the Coroner's
Records In Davenport No Clue Yet.
It will be remembered by the Argus
readers that last summer this paper
printed an extended account of the dis
appearance under very mysterious cir
cumstances of a young man named B rt
E Moore.of Port Byron, who left there very
suddenly. leaving all his clothing and also
money deposited in bank. His friends
thereafter waiting several weeks and find
ing no trace of him. made a diligent search
but could discover notb'ng that would
throw any light whatever on his where
abouts. The young man had said nothing
about leaving the to wn.the first of his ab-
ence being discovered the morning after
he ief t, when he did not open up tbe hard
ware stoie where he was employed. It
was learned that dsy that be had pur
chased a ticket for Moline, but beyond
that no trace whatever of him could be
found not even of his arrival there.
A L. Moore of Florence. Minn., a
brother of the missing young man, ar
rived in the ci'y on Saturday, intending
to do what be could toward clearing up
the mystery surrounding young Moore's
absence. He went at once to Coroner
McCartney's office in Davenport, where
he examined the rinps and other articles
that were on tbe body of the young man
found in Shaw's eddy, j ist above the
Rock IsUnd bridge last May. Mr.
Moore has two photographs of his miss
ing brother which Coroner McCorioty
savs bear a striking resemblance
to tbe features ef the dead
body found in tbe river. The shirt
tab on the body was marked H. N. H
but this Mr. Moore thinks may bave
been exchanged! in a laundry. Since
tbe article was published in
this paper young Moore's friends
while going through his trunk came
across some letter, and among them one
written to a sister in Minnesota which
bad never been mailed It spoke of the
probability of his leaving Port Byron .and
added that she should not be surprised if
he ws: missing some day. Tnis tends to
throw some light upon his disappearance
and his brother is now looking up every
detail connected with tbe case in hopes
of finding some trace.
