Last evening at Amorv hall oe-
etirreil the grand inaugural ball given
by the lOung Men s Mi'vcnson club
in honor of the inaugural ceremonies
at Washington today. The invita
tions went were well responded to and
the result was one of the happiest
gatherings that has occurred this
llanclMome Decora Uoeih .
The interior of the hall had heen
gailv ami elaborately decorated for
the event and the resti t had a very
striking effect. Red. white and blue
festoons were looped at ross the cen
ter aud front end to end, the balcony
and side walls being alike handsome
ly decorated. At the extreme end of
the hall was the Stevenson club ban
ner, while on either side were the
jKirt raits of Cleveland and Stevenson,
the one word Welcome" overhang
ing the whole. Upon arrival the
guests were met by a reception com
mittee and every court 'sy extended.
Among those present w is a large del
egation from the Horace ISoics club
of Davenport, accompanied by their
ladies. Besides the del 'gations from
Moline and Davenpirt. a large
number from abroad v ere present,
making it one of the must largely at
tended balls of the ycai. there being
about 100 couples in all. Bleuer's
orchestra furnished ex -client music
and for several hour-; the merry
throng indulged in dancing.
Supper anil Speeches
At midnight the da ice. was sus

spread which had been prepared un
der the supervision of Mrs. Herkert,
was enjoyed by the guests. Presi

rappeil for order and in a few well
chosen remarks bid a cordial wel
come to those present, expressing his
gratification at the presence of the
Horace'Boiesclub. Th -n saving that
a few remarks on an occasion of this
kind would be in order, President
Huesing called upon Vice President
Blanding. The latter 'nude a very
pleasing response, spe iking of the
appropriateness of an occasion of
of this kind jui-t at this
time. He spoke of the great number
of appointive ollices--the greatest
number perhaps in the history of the
world that are about o be turned
over into the hands of t.nothcr politi
cal party, and that too with the best
of feeling and in a graceful, orderly
manner. He then spoc briefly of
what mistakes might tc made in the
chosing of a president, remarking
that no such mistake had been made
this time and of the conlidence re
posed in hint by the pe ple at large.
In dosing he mentioi.ed our own
representative, the ice president
elect, in whose honor the club had
been named, and bid a hearty wel
come to the Horace Boies club.
On Behalf of the Role Club.
Henry Vollmer, of Davenport, the
talented young president of the Hor

sponse, in which he extended the
hand of goodfellowship across the
great father of waters, and spoke of
the organization of tun two young
clubs and of the work they had ac
complished in the la-it campaign.
His remarks, while not lengthy, were
of an entertaining character aud a
lilting close to an event of the kind.
After the supper had been linished
the guests returned to the hall,
where terpsichorean delights were in
dulged in until a late hjur.

from being killed on the way out of
St. Louis Thursday morning. He
was in charge of the St. Louis pas
senger due here in the evening an'd
it was while at Bridge Junction, just
this side of St. Louis, that the acci
dent occurred. He had stepped up
on another track to give his engineer
a signal to pull out, and did not no
tice a switch engine that was ap
proaching swiftly. The noise of en
gines prevented him from hearing it
and he was struck in the back and
thrown under his own train. The
accident occured in the twinkling of
an eye, and though Mr. Study vin was
somewhat bruised and shocked, he
did not sustain any serious conse

A DELAYED CARGO.
Months Between India anil IJix-k
lil.iml Big Freight Charges.
Warnock & Ralston, the soap man
ufacturers, yesterday received u car
load cargo of cocoanut oil from the
East India islands that has no doubt
seen some pretty stormy times. It
consists of some 30 pipes of oil and
was shipped from the island of Cey
lon, one of the East India group, on
the fourth day of last July. The
cargo was shipwrecked on the west
coast of Africa and then being towed
to East Loudon Africa, lay there
about two months, being agaiu start
ed on its vayage from that port in
October, reaching Boston some days
ago. A remarkable fact in connec
tion with the shipment of these oils
is the small amount of leakage
that is sustained while they are in
transit. The casks or pipes, as they
are termed, are used in shipping
rums and wines from Germany and
the other European countries into In
dia, and are then utilized by the na
tives in exporting their oils. The
pipes are said to be the linest kind of
cooperage, which is evidenced by the
fact that scarcely any of the liquid
escapes during the long voyage to this
ltig Freight Ohargee.
Another peculiar thing is the mat
ter of freight charges, the amount
charged by rail from Boston to this
city being in excess of the freight
from Ceylon to Boston, the difference
beiug made by the freight classifica
tion in this country.

The County Board and the East
man Poormaster Case.
APPEALING IT HIGHER FOB WHAT?
Involving au IOnoruioiis Expense to the
County for no rurpose Except the grati
fication of Pure Obstinacy Queer. I ilea a
of Economy Theae Costs so Far.
The board of supervisors as stated
in the report of yesterday's proceed
ings has determined to "appeal the
Eastman poormaster case to the ap
pellate court. The facts surround
ing this case are familliar to all and
are of such a nature that the outcome
involves no particularly momentous
questions. The point of issue merely
was as to whether the appointive
power was vested in the township or
the county in the matter of poor
masters. E. L. Eastman was ap
pointed poormaster by the Moline
city council nearly two years ago.
Mr. Eastmen had some political ene
mies in the county board and when
his bond came up for approval, they
succeeded in having it rejected anil
the board took it upon themselves to
appoint L. F. Kerns poormaster in
The Issue Involved.
From this sprung the issue b 'tween
the county board and the city of Mo
line as to the appointing power. The
matter went into the circuit court,
where Judge Glenn recently rendered
a decision, ordering the county board
to approve Mr. Eastman's bond as
the properly appointed poormaster.
The decision of the court evidently
wounded the inllated feelings of some
members of the board and they re
solved not to submit to it, but to car
ry the case higher regardless of the
consequences to the tax payers, who
have no interest in the matter and
who can reap no possible benefit no
matter what the outcome of the case
in the far distant future, when from
all that now- appears, the supreme
court of the United States may event
ually be called upon to tussle witli
the case and hand down the final
The Expense to the County
So that the petty stubbornness and
spitework on the part of the board of
supervisors, which boasts of its oco
nomic methods, has already cost the
county $6':i. will run the expense up
to $1,000 by the time it gets to the
appellate court. The attorney fees
up to date will not be under" $500.
The court costs so far are $57.50.
The utter absurdity of the board's
position, therefore, in its determina
tion to get around the laws of the
state and sustain a position once as
sumed, however wrong, is not likely
to meet with the approval of the peo
ple of uhe county, whose interests the
f-npervisors are suposed to guard,
instead of indulging in the child's
play characteristic of the present
Wise Men Chance Their Opinions.
Attorney -General Moloney has
written a " letter to City Attorney
Oakleaf. of Moline in which he states
that he was erroneous in his opinion
as to the application of the Austral
ion ballot law to recent elections ".on
High school sites held in Moline and
that upon more careful study he
tinds that the section has no applica
tion to such election. In explana
tion Mr. Moloney manfully acknowl
edges his error as follows: "I am
satisfied ou an examination of the
section referred to, that you are
right, and that my suggeston to Mr.
Swensson was erroneous. You will
communicate with him to that effect.
At the time I received his communi
cation I was overwhelmed with busi
ness, and in the hurry of the moment
I failed to give it the attention that
it deserved. Indeed, I depended too
much on my recollection of that sec
tion of the statute, without particu
larly referring to it, except in a gen
eral way. You are right and I was
wrong, "and I am always glad to be
put upon the right track whenever I
