Matbsw, Chairman. Kewaae,Ill ,F.b. 18 18 The most supremely, inntterably indifferent individual in Rock Island on the congressional candidacy just now is C. J. Searle. And indeed he baa reasons. Toronto is ran on strict Sabbsth arian lines. The town clock is per mitted to run on Sunday, bat every, thing else ceases labor on the first day of the week. Nast, the famoaa old-tince car toonist, is in Washington engaged in painting a picture of the surrender of Lee at Appomatoz, to go into the public library at Grant's old home. Galena. Illinois, as a state, is to be peti tioned to conduct such geological in. vestigations as will result in the lo cation of shale beds from which -the best quality of paving brick material can be obtained. The Gestites, we are inclined to believe, will have a much more diffi cult task in running off with the con vention at Oalva tban they did in capturing some of the caucuses in this city even if Joe Haas is a dele gate. Gov. Moktox, of New Turk, is an exceedingly graceful host. - He is hospitable by nature, and his ten dency to make his guests happy has been encouraged by large wealth and by long experience'in public and so ciety life. Thb Union's attempt to figure out a mathematical basis lor believing that Gest can be nominated at Galva. and its effrontery in assuming that other counties may be expected to sustain him, is positively painful but then, no matt r. The provision for f lOU.OOO in the amendment to the sundry civil ap propriation bill for the first install ment of the $490,000 allotted by the government fr the replacing of the present Bock Island bridge with a modern double-track bridge, is a good thing for this locality. It will afford much employment as well as strengthen the ties that bind. the community. Or the 12.690.152 homes and farms in the United States. 1,1X6,174 are occupied by pore blacks and 224.595 by mnlattoes. Of the negroes. 207, 616 own their homes or farms, and 978.558 rent them. Of the mnlat toes, 56.672 own, and 067,923 rent. Or the negro owners, 467,705 are men and 39,911 are women; of the Ben, 148.545 own their farms or homes without incumbrance, and 19,160 are mortgaged. Of the women, 86,841 have their farms and homes free from debt and 3.080 carry mortgages. This percentage is a great deal better than that of the white race as regards mortgages. The percentage of mort gaged property for the entire United States is 38.97. The percentage of mortgaged property owned by the negro population is'only 10.71. The percentage of property held bv col ored men without mortgage is 33.53. ine percentage neia by colored wo men without mortgage is 92.28. PatTI Frwport Bulletin. President Cleveland has thrown consternation into the ranks of the leading republican aspirants for the nomination in 1896. They have tried to hinder him in the adminis tration of affairs ever since his in augurauon, cnannns turn witn in ability to rescue the country from the financial embarassment into which it had fallen through republi can maladministration, and seeming to gloat over the fact that they were deluding the country into believing that the democratic 'party was hope lessly aiviae on tne great question of today, while their party was one of harmony and brotherly'love, and only needed the opportunity of speedily placing the country on a firm financial basis. Bat President Cleveland eat down on them the other day. He sent a message to contrresi on the financial question and there bv compelled the members to stand up in line and be counted oal one sine or ine otner 01 mus uauon, How Beed squirmed. He recognized the situation at once, bat ne saw no way out. There was the great army of silverttes in the far west, and there was the great army of strong financiers, boards of trade, etc.. all over the . great country sending petitions and telegrams urging con gress to adopt the suggestions of the president. He feels that he must do something to hold the support of both, bat, like most men who try to do so, failed. In order to please the former, he offered a substitute for the bill prepared along the lines of Cleveland's message, bat failed to have it adopted; in order to please the latter, he actually voted for the administration bill. The vote showed that the republicans are hopelessly divided on the great question of finance. And now Reed is wishing he had kept hands off. for many re publican members are already look ing for another candidate for speaker. Senator Allison, another aspirant, profiting by the blunders of Reed, is seeking to straddle in another way. He has no solution to offer, but wants to be named as the republican candidate without an expression on tne silver question, leaving that for the congressional districts to settle. Good bye Allison; the people won't wait tin 1997. fticnanley, the third prominent aspirant, is not in con gress, and therefore escapes the necessity of taking a stand in the question at issue, but as "Bill" Mc. Kinley's prominence is due entirely to the McKinley "Bill," which was torn to pieces in 1892, ant as the present democratic tariff law is grow ing more popular every day, the probabilities are that his chances by next year will not be worth consid ering. It is to be hoped that the president will call the new republican congress in special session this spring and make them show their colors. Every democrat would applaud the act. The Dlsoewory Savad Bil Life. G. Caillonette, druggist. Beavers Tine, 111., says: -To Dr. King's Sew Discovery I owe my life.
