A Ratification Jubilee That Spoke the En

Fire Reign Tomorrow Night's Demon
stration a Rock Island Committee
Davenport celebrated the democratic
victory last night. The heavens reflected
the glow of the Are that was kindled on
the earth, or so much of it as is included
in the corporate limits' of Davenoort.
Csnnon boomed, people shrieked with
loy.iin pans and saws were beaten rockets
and Roman candles rent the air and tin
hcras and kszooB were blown. The
Uteyenson club of Rock Island and the
Cabie club of Moline and other d-. mo
ertts ana citizens of the Twin Cities
went over and enjoyed the occasion. A
bonfire burned at the foot of Main street
which Etnt up a bright fbnie. The pro
cji-sioa whs a feature. Speaking of the
colume as it moved through the streets,
ill? Democrat says:
Ntxt CMJie the Stevenson club of Rock
Island, 8J men. neatly uniformed in
white ulfcUrs. As they pasped along the
crowd reeled them heartily, with shouts
of " Illinois! Hurrah for Illinois!"
From one of tne floats in the proces
sion a black-bordered handbill was dis
tributed generously that bore the follow
ing mysterious inscription:
"Sad death of the Mi Klnley bill. It
fell from Grace Nov 8. 18K2, with theG.
O. P., into the bottom of the mock tur
tle soiip with Mr. McGinty, and will be
resurrected when the American people
go crazy. Respectfully.
Committee Meeting Tonight.
All the committees in any way con
nected with tomorrow night's demon
s ration will bear in mind the meeting at
Turner hall tonight, which all are re
quested to attend. All arrangemen's
not heretofore made will be completed
to-night and every effort made to make
it a rousing success. Persons liviog
hlong the line of march should not for
get their illumination on that night,
which will add greatly to the occasion.
Every democratic club in the city should
lurn out, as they doubtless will, acd
make the pe.rade a feature.
At Sooth Bwk Island
The rcmocrats of South Rock Island
met at the Town ball there last night
ana decided to send a big delegation to

The Blue Eirth City (Minn.) Poet
says: "F. L. Hunt, assisted by home tal
ent, presented "True Blue" to the peo
pie of Blue Earth City on Thursday,
Friday and Saturday evenings at the
opera house. Good audiences creeled
them at each performance and the play
gave great satisfaction, which was at
tested by the fact that the interest in the
play did not lag and the largest audience
of the tiries greeted them on tne latt
evening. The Woman's Relief Corps
netted about f 300 for their share. We
do not feel it necessary to individually
mertion our local talent that assisted Mr.
Hunt; suffice it to say that all did ere: I
lent. Mr. Hunt is a dandy as "Jake

Haverly 'a MhutreU.
There are few men in the amusement
business before the American public who
haye seen the successes aud reverses that
J. H. Haverly has. Yet with all Hav
erly very seldom disappoints his audi
ences. Last night was the exception to
such a rule, however. His Mastodon
minstrels were not what they were
cracked up to be. In fact they were in
every way inferior to the orgatiz ition
that appeared in Rock Island a few
months ago. There wers some very
good features, but the performance on
the whole was rather ragged. Billy Rice
had a cold and couldn't sing, and left for
Chicago daring the evening. Elssell,
tne musket wonder, was not with the
troupe. Everything was boiled down

The Rock Island Committee to the M
A. Head Camp.
Messrs. E W. Hurst. E. H. Guver,
George F. Roth and Jehn Ohlweiler
leave tonight for Omaha, where the bead
camp of the M. W. A. meets Thursday.
It is the mission of the gentlemen to put
forth every effort in behalf of securing
t be location of the head offleesof the order,
which will in all probability be moved
from Fulton to some 'her city in Illinois.
The Rock Island committee will have as
inducements to offer a desirable site on
Fifteenth street opposite court house
square, on which may be erected a per
manent building for the order, and also
a suite of rooms in Mitchell & Lynde's
building for temporary quarters.
mex island presents advantages for the
location X the head offices that are
contained in few other cities, not only in
its admirable location but in its accessi
bility by rail from all points. The head j
offices are worth working for. Rocklsland
sends an excellent committee to look af
ter its interests and will be very apt to
land the prizt.

Power tn Iron Mining.
The power used in iron ore mining in the
United States is enormous. The official
returns from the various mines report a
total of more than l,100steam boilers, with
an aggregate of some 58,000 horsepower;
and these boilers furnish steam to about
1,100 steam engines, including air com
pressors, hotetiDg machinery, engines for
criving washers, crushers, etc., some of
large size. These engines, however, do not
in most instances include the motive
power for pumps, in a majority of cases
the latter being rated independent of
steam engines, as a locomotive would be.
In the returns made, however, there were
about eighty pumps mentioned independ
ent of steam engines, twenty locomotives
used in and about the mines, four steam
hovels employed in digging or handling
ore, eight turbine wheels driving machin
ery, and ten air compressors worked by
Of course the application of steam and
compressed air in the iron mines has very
largely reduced the number of animals
employed in and about the mines, and it is
to be remarked that Michigan, on account
of its numerous deep mines, and as the
largest producer of iron ore, stands at the
head of these data of macb inery and power.
