Our Next Congressman Talks to the Farm
ers of tht Lower Knl of the County on the
Tariff Doctrine and its Application to
Them Guy C. Scott Speaks at Tort By
ron Political Notes.
Unquestionably the greatest political
iemoustratiou ever held in the lower end
of Rock Island county was that of the
democrats in honor of Truman Pluntz at
Edgington last night. The entire town
was illuminated, the stores, houses and
even the trees being hung with iay col
ored lanterns. The parade was headed
by a cross band from Buffalo, Iowa, a
drum corps n'eo furnishing music, and
the column inc'udea clubs from Elgiog
ton, Reynolds, A; dilusia, Bnd a good
representation of democratic citizens from
Buffalo Prairie, Illinois City, Drury and
Hamlet. A brilliant display of fireworks
was shown prior to the meeting which
was held at Stoddard's hall and which con
tained 1,100 peop!", a great mauy repub i
cans being present, and giving the closest
attention to the arguments of the bright
future congressman. There were a num
ber of ladies present aleo. The Moline
glee club rendered a number of apt cam
paign Bongs, Stc d lard's hall nevrr be
fore contained eo large and so enthusias
tic a crowd of people.
I'lants Talks to the Farmers.
It was 8:30 o'clock when Mr. Plan'z
was introduced by B. F. Fountain chair
man of the meeting in s short but appro
priate address. Mr. Plantz was tendered
a complimentary reception and spoke for
two hours and a half, presenting one of
bis exhaustive and irrefutable arguments
on the tariff, speaking of its application
to the farmers. Be took up the republican
claims mide during the last year that the
price of wheat h'ving risen to 90 cents
to $1 per bushel, was due to protection.
calliDg attention to the fact that it was
the foreign demand crowing out of the
crop failure and consequent famine in Rus
sia that had brought about such condi
tions. tbat in other words it was the for
eign market that democrats are contend
ing for that bad brought the increased
price for wheat, but tbat since that mar
ket had been closed by the better crop
conditions this sear, wheat bad gone
down to 60 and 65 cents pr bushel, and
that since theu we had not heard a chirp
from the republicans about the ellect of
the McKinley bill.
Next he took up tne claims of the Mc
K-cleyites.that the raising of the tariff on
grain laid by the McKinley bill would
fl nd this country with foreign cereals
end the home farmer would have no
market for his products. In refutation of
uch an argument Mr. Plantz presented
the following figures of actual imports
during the year 1889, previous to the
time the McKinley bill went into effi-ct:
Corn S,H buxhela
Mr. Piau'.z held that it wt.s not the im-
norti that the former was afraid of in
the way of competition. What the far
mcr wanted was a foreign market in
which to trade his farm products for
clothing and the necessaries of life.
It was an able and practical discussion
of the tariff issue and was enthusiastically
Guy C. Scott at Port liyron.
There was a rousing democratic rally
at Port Byron last night. A large num
ber of farmers from the surrounding
country came in. and the rink, where the
meeting' was held, was .crowded to tbc
doors. The Port Byron Silver band
tamed out . and furnished music for the
occasion, and the result was the largest
democratic rally that has been held in the
upper end this year. At 8 o'clock the
ball was full of people, and the moeting
was colled to o.d ;r by E. M. Rogere.who
after a few preliminary remarks, intro
duced the speaker, Hon. Guy C. Scott, of
His introduction was received by et
thvsiastic applause, and he began
his address by referring very touching
ly to the i fll'cTion of the
prcs:d:nt saying, however, that while
the millions would turn a moment from
the strife and turmoil to shed a sympa
thetic tear with the chief executive in hit
hour of iffl ction, a grave state of af
fairs that concerns a great nation's wel
fare and prosperity confronts the Ameri
can people that cannot be lost sight of.
The speaker then mentioned the late
accessions to democracy, dwelling at
some length upon the life and character
of Judge. Gresham, and followed this
with a passing mention of Wayne Mc
Veagh, Judge Cooley and others who
bave bad the courage of their convictions
and joined hands with democracy, also
speaking of the effect that the
C'.ange of Er-G- A. R. Commander
John P. Rea wosld have upon the wav
ering ones. Mr. Scott then took up the
currency question, and in an open and
straightforward manner explained the po
sition of the democratic party and the
cause for the adoption of the plank ' o
which the republicans object in order to
divert the attention of the public from
the real questions at issue. Later the
speaker entered into an able discussion
of the question cf a protective tariff, and
submitted several telling arguments
showing the inconsistency of the repub
lican party when the linn they now sub
mit to go by is followed out to its
logical conclusion. He exposed
the fallacy of "the foreigner pajs the tax"
bugaboo and showed how it effects the
farmer and laborer to whom it is an un
just burden. In closing he spoke of the
d.-ad issues that are at times planted in
t-ie f ce of the younger democrats, and
said they had -een settled and settled
right and that there could be no occasion
for resurrecting them. Af'er express
ing his confldence.in de cocral'c &ucce?s
he closed his sddrest).
His r mirks were given the closest at
tention by the large audience and deeply
impressed his hearers. His manner of
delivery is easy, not a word was t-poken
that could bave offended any republican
p-esent of which there were a good
C. M. MorrUon of Chicago a nephew
of Eon. W. R. Morrison was in the
audience and an attentive listener.
Tonight Mr. Plantz speaks at Moline
and Guy C. Scott talks at Illinois City.
All good democrats should cast three
votes for J. H. Mulligan for representa
tive on election day. It is a dangerous
policy to risk a single vote on an inde
pendent can ti-Jate, and it is a good plan
this year to sit dawn on a candidate, who
having failed to receive a parly nomin -
tion. ges before the people afterward as
a bolting candidate.

A stranger in the city worked a bouus
check draft on two Rock Islar-d business
houses last night, but got nipped trying
it on a third one. He woiked one at
Schneider's cash shoe store and another
at the Biker & Housman hardware store
but failed in trying to shove one onChas
Bunche, a clerk at Hansgen's grocery.
The latter was suspicious, however and
when the clerk went to get bis employer's

a hurry. He was however stopped in

from Thomas Kerr, formerly of Milan,
now located at Minneapolis, to which

Minneapolis. Minn., Oct. 24. Edi
tor Argus: I Intended to catl at The
ARGUd office before leaving Rock Island,
and have my paper sent to this place, but
business was such that I could not pos
sibly get in. I regret very much to leave
Illinois so near a presidential election
and lose my vote, not because my yote
was needed in Itlitoia, for I believe the
state is safely democratic, but I regret to
lose my vote for the first time since I
cast my first ballot for Martin Van Ba
re n in 1836, and there is not a hole, in my
blanket up to the present time.
The democrats are alive up here. I at
tended the Mills meeting in this place

largest political meeting I ever attended.

Look Out For Roorbacks.
It is expected that within the two
weeks preceding the election the Repub
licans will undertake to spring all sorts
of stories about Judge Altgeld. Con
spicuous among these will be an attempt
to make it appear that he is in some de
gree the friend, ally or benficiary of
"Mike" McDonald. People who are
acquainted with Chicago politics know
that "Mike" McDonald has been defeated
repeatedly in his precinct within the
last few years. That his influence in the
convention amounts to little or nothing,
and that the assertions supjKrted by
proof that any given candidate on any
ticket is his agent is equivalent to an
assured defeat. "Mike" McDonald does
not control any element in the Demo
cratic party in Chicago. Judge Altgeld
has never had any relations with Mc
During the Cleveland administration
Judge Altgeld was classed with the anti
gang Democrats. The accusation that
Judge Altgeld is a Socialist and at the
same time in alliance with "Mike" Mc
Donald is a possibility that nobody ex
cept persons who are stupidly unac
quainted with Chicago politics and Illi
nois affairs generally, would give a
moment's credence to. "Mike" McDon
ald never had any use for Altgeld for the
reason that he could not control him,
but McDonald has frequently made the
assertion that nobody could get there
quicker than he himself could. When
it became aara-nt that Altgeld would
be elected MeDuiiald supported him and
rushed to the front and endeavored to
make it appear that he was doing the
principle part of the work.
As a matter of fact up to the last m in
ute McDonald was for General Black for
governor. Those Democrats who at
tended the state convention will recall
this as being the fact.
What the Hon. George G. Vest says in
regard to the superiority of the Hirsch
