Josun, August 1 Where is the
professional rainmaker? If there is
any man living that can by artificial
means, fetch us a gentle shower of
two or three hours' duration his ser
vices would be very valuable in Rock
Island county at the present time.
Farmers hereabouts are busy
stacking their grain and making hay.
They are hoping and wishing that it
may rain,, as the corn stands in great
need of it.
The talk in the republican papers
that the present financial stringency
is due to apprehended tariff legisla
tion is all rot. May it not be charged
to republican legislation for the last
80 years on the money qustion?
Wasn't the McKinley bill to bring
up the price of wheat" bv increasing
the tariff? The Mc Kinley bill is still
in full force and wheat is at the low
est point it has reached in a genera
tion. It is to be hoped that the far
mers can see through the attempted
Of course it is a well known fact
among the farmers that there is a
milk, butter and cheese contest at
the World's fair between the (Juern
seys. Jerseys and Short-Horn heads
of cattle. . The Jerseys are so far
ahead if they have not cost any more
for their feed. E very thing is now
weighed out to them and the cost of
their keep has to be taken into con
sideration. That has not yet been as
certained. Is it not about time that we all put
on our thinking caps and come to
some conclusion as to what is best to
be done for the welfare of the fairest
country upon earth? Is it not about
time that we wage a determined un
compromising war upon the trusts
and combinations of capital, which
have been, and still are being formed
to legally rob the producers of this
land? Legislation which enables a
Carnegie to outshine the royal fami
lies of the old world to give $50,000
diamonds as a wedding present, to
live in such splendor as is scarcely
excelled even by royalty, and in a
few years amass a fortune in addition
to all this expenditure of more than
thirty million dollars. Is it not time,
I say. that we commenced to legislate
for the greatest good to the greatest
number, and demand that the consti
tution of the United States guaran
tees equal rights and equal opportu
nities according to our means.
In my opinion the conditions which
have resulted in the present financial
difficulties were all in existence when
the democratic party came into pow
er last March, and all thinking and
intelligent republicans must be of
the same opinion. It is claimed that
the present financial trouble is sim
ply "want of confidence," and I sup
pose all people begin to feel some
thing like the Chicago shoe-black
who had 75 cents deposited in one of
the Chicago banks. Hearing, after
the bank closed the evening before
that the institution was not in a very
sound condition, he was up bright
and early the following morning and
at the bank as soon as it ojnjned.
Approaching the cashier, he asked,
confidentially, if the bank really was
in a shaky condition. The cashier
replied that the bank was all solid
and if he wanted his money he could
have it. "Well," said the shoe-black,
"if you have got it I don't want it;
but if you don't have it I want it."

The oldest engineer in the service

Miller, is dead, lie fell and sudden
ly expired in his yard at Henry, 111.,
last Thursday, after his return home
from a run. mlic was born in Fall
River. Mass., in 1828. When 14
years of age he went to sea in one of
his father's ships. When 19 he found
work on the Old Colony line in Mass
achusetts. In 1849 he'sailed to Cali
fornia with his father, and returned
the same way some time later, after
which he resumed work in the em
ploy of the Old Colony companj'. In
the spring of 1856 he came to Illinois
and went to work for the Rock Isl
and. He had learned to run and care
for an engine on the Old Colony, and
he was in demand on this
new line, then just opening
for business in the Sucker state.
He was an engineer of the old school
and style. He was in more than one
accident and wreck, but was never
injured till a year ago, when his
train, the night express out of Peoria,
was ditched by a washout, and he
was covered with water up to his
neck, and imprisoned in the debris
of the smashup. About sixteen years
ago, one of his sons, a brakeman in
the Rock Island's employ, fell off the
train near the family home and was
run over and killed." He left a wife
and three sons and three daughters.
The funeral was held at Henry Sun
day afternoon. The Rock Island ran
a special train to it, and it was at
tended by a host of railroad men and
other friends. The pall bearers were
selected from among the veteran em
ployes of the road.
