President Hartzell's Address to
SOME IKTEEESTIKO EAELY HISTORY
Kcvlw the Advance or Civilisation from
the Time ot the Fir White Settlers
The Wlldernem Has Blossomed as a Rom
Date or Kliglliillty Changed.
In his valedictory address before
the eounty pioneers at their annual
pionie at Moline yesterday, President
Hartzell in transferring the eane of
authority to his sueeessor, S. W. Mc
Master, the 29th president of the so
ciety, made one of the most interest
speeches ever delivered bufore
the pioneers. It was brimful of rem
iniscences of our early history. In
beginning he said he was one of the
eharter members, and that he left
Pennsylvania in 1S35. and came to
Koek Island via the Ohio and Missis
sippi rivers. The first letter he
wrote to his sweetheart was dated
from Farrnington, and the postage
was 25 cents. In 1835 the county
was located and the county scat
named Stephenson. In 1836 he went
back l. Pennsylvania and made the
best investment of his life, taking to
himself n wife with whom he had
lived now 67 years. He came near
losing her once when a large Indian
asked C. H. Case, his brother-in-law,
if he thought he could buy that
squaw, who was with his wife. He
ottered five ponies for her. When
Mr. Case told him that she was mar
ried, he replied that Indians some
times sold their wives. '-If be had
persisted," said Mr.. Hartzell, -there
might have been a fuss when
I got home.'" Said he:
"The natives, among them i!ack
Hawk, came to the village to trade
and to have their war dances. I met
Keokuk, who succeeded Black Hawk,
in 1837. I heard him make a noble
plea before the United States land
agents, who were here to treat for
the lands west of the Oes Moines
river. The meeting was held on Le
Clairc's addition to Davenport.
There were 1,400 Indians present,
and the treaty was ratified. Fort
Armstrong was occupied bv a garri
son of soldiers. That fall they" were
moved to Prairie l)u Chicn." The
country was sparsely settled, but a
few families farming in a small way.
They grew up with the growth of the
I was one of the first men that

Hock Island, and I saw three of his
murderers pay the penalty of their
crime. When we look back half a
century, as some of us can, truly can
we say, 'The wilderness has blos
somed as n rose.' Towns and cities
have been built. Within a radius of
10 miles in our own locality, ihree
cities are located, with some 70,000
inhabitants. The emigrants and
sturdy 3'oemen have built up the
country; the hills are dotted with
churches and schools, and the child
ren are learning the duties of life."

Manager Sage is considering two
proiositions for his team at the close
of the league season. One is to take
the club to Burlington and plav a
series there as a Burlington
nine, and the other is to make an
exhibition tour. The latter would
be more satisfactory all around, un
doubtedly, not only in a profitable
sense, but to the lovers of the game
who have supported the team here
and who are a little sentimental
about sharing its glory with other
cities. Its success, if it wins the
pennantwill be identified with Koek
Island, and under these circum
stance a series of exhibition games
would pay here as well as anywhere.

purely an issue to be settled among
the other political jiajK-rs. However,
the Union is entirely right in main,
taining that it is the duty of the
judges and clerks of election to as
sign the printing of the ballots, and
they alone can do it, so that the
board s action in advertising for bids
is of no effect. The ruction of the
eleeiion law i ;i:ite plain, and ha?
been given before, but it may be re
published. In defining the duties of
judges and clerk.,it says: -Thcy.(the
judges and clerkf) shall eause'to be
puoiisncit prior to the day of election
in at loast two newspapers, repre
senting the political parties which
east at the preceding election the
largest and next largest number of

made as herein provided, and to be
voted for at such election, as near as
