John J. tngalls Lectures in Rock Island. THE SECOUD OENTURT PROBLEM. Th. San Flower Slat. Orator Speaks of the Iodlfferrue. of American. Citizenships th. Most Formidable Question of the Day Sowing What W. Boap. ' A splendid audience greeted the renowned orator, ex-Senator John J. Ingall, of Kansas, at the chapel of Augustana college last evening. Af ter two excellent songs by the Apollo quartet the lecturer was introduced by the president of the Lyceum. Emil G. Cbindlund. Mr. Ingalls pre faced bis address with a few choice nnmorons pyrotechnics, which, ex ploding, created a storm At applause which did not subside until the speaker had slipped into his great subject, '-Problems of Our Second Century,'" after which the andience was kept spell-bound for more than an hour and 30 minutes. At the outset of his observations and in the vestibule of his remarks be spoke of what he considered to be the most serious and formidable prooiem that is threatening oar American society and civilization to day, and that is the indifference, the inattention and neglect, the igno' ranee of the educated, upright, moral and Christian classes in our society to the discharge of their political rights and duties as citizens of this republic. Because every question under this system in which we -live is a political question to be decided ov the mn and women who are growing up to manhood and woman hood. Ihey are to be decided bv them at the ballot box. Complaint of th. Times. "The complaint of the times in which we live,'" said Mr. Ingalls, and the reproach is bad government and corruption in modern society We hear constant denunciations from the pulpit, in the press and from the platform, of degredation and corrup tion in the government; p utocracy, or the government by millionaire's; oossism, or corruption in municipal affairs; boodlism in great cities, the' sale of franchises by legislatures, de fulcation of high officials in the dis charge of their duties; and there is no better place than this platform. no better auspices under which to say that for the evils, corruptions and mal-administrations of our soci ety and government, the best people are responsible. The people of this country in every community and locality have exactly as good govern ment as they deserve to have. The government in every city, town and state is what the best people saw fit to make; and, if your taxes are ex cessive, if your revenues are squan dered, and if evil and designing rogues ana knaves mount to power. it is not the fault of the institutions of society, but of the men and women who lorm that soctetv, because they neglect their political and social duties. If congress errs in its duties it is not the fault of congress, but the fault ot the people who sent the representatives there." Should Tajr Mora Attention to Politics. It is necessary, he held, for the upright, religious and edu cated classes to pay greater at tention to their political du ties. In other words they should be politicians; not in the sense of be ing seekers after office, but in a more patriotic sense, by taking constant interest in public affairs. In speak ing of the rights and privileges of American citizenship, the speaker saiu some legislation should be en acted that will prevent any man from setting foot on board a sh which is about to sail for these shores, unless be has affirmatively established the fact to the officer for that purpose appointed that he is able and willing to be a selfsupport ing, patriotic American citizen. "And I believe nothing could so far con tribute to the preservation of this great franchise and to the maintain ing 01 ennai rights lor all," con tinued Mr, Ingalls, "than for. every community, no matter where it might be, to p'ace in its law 1 . ' . . . . . . . declaration mat no man should per icrm me last act 01 American citi zenship unless able to read and write and speak the English tongue which is upon the ballot which be deposits in the box." A Remedy. In conclusion the distinguished orator said that to solve the great problems presented to the American people the true remedy will be found not in legislation or enactment, bnt in the faithful, conscientious and patriotic discharge of the political and social dnties of every American citizen. In this way shall we be eu abled to make this, as our fathers in tended it should be, a government of laws and not a government of men "And do not forget." he said, "in theJ great struggles that are before you and to whch yon are committed that there is one inexorable universal law, to which we are are all subject; a law as high as heaven and as deep as hell; law irom which none are exempt, to wnicn even tne weakest are subiect, and that is the divine law of com pen ration. id it is as true now as when written, for nations as well as for men that -We do not gather grapes from thorns nor figs from thistles;' that virtue, intelligence and industry will have their reward, and ignorance and fmmorality will have their punishment. And that which was true in the beginning is now and will be nntil time shall be no more, that 'Whatsoever a man oweth, that shall he also reap.' " THE SPECIAL EDITION. Th. Arena Fore. Agala Fanning; It. Melancholy Way. The presence of the ladies in all the various departments of a news paper office is not a privilege that befalls the common lot of those in any capacity engaged in the publi-' cation of a daily journal. Hence the pleasure which became the part of The Akgcs yesterday was one that was not secondary to the novelty of the occasion. The air ot refinement which pervaded sanctum and count, ing room left a lingering impression, which will not disappear even when the bits of ribbon, misplaced hair pins, the stubs of pencils, and the remnants of a box of tempting delica cies have been tenderly stowed away nnder proper label. Little as was the opportunity afforded the ladies to judge 01 the everyday hum drum ot a newspaper man's exist ence the fates that decree sensa tional features, such as murders, sui cides and a dozen and one happen ings a day for which man may or mav not be responsible, having willed to them a qniet uneventful day tney aouotiess realized in a small measure that work is the chief essential to success in an office of publication.. We reach this surmise by our own observation 01 the pluck. zeal and energy displayed by every lady identified with the special issue, for "never has the crown ot reward been better deserved. Pleasant Memories Will Linger. The Argus, too, feels particularly gratified, without being boastful, in having put the issue out on time last night and being equipped with the advantage of a perfecting press to dispose of it so handily. Altogether, The Argus feels like proposing anew the toast, ihe Ladies, uod Bless Them." It feels that it is better for those hours of pleasant association even the "devil" seems subdued nnder the influence.

To- Tomorrow will be Thanksgiving day, an occasion set aside by na tional and state executive for the of. fering of expressions of gratitude to the Giver of all Good for the bounte ous blessings that have been received at His hands. The protestant churches of the city, in accordance with a custom for some years ob served, will hold a union service in the morning which will also afford an opportunity for gifts to the poor. The service will be held at the First Baptist church at 10 o'clock in the morning. Rev. Ira W. Allen, of the Central Presbyterian church, will preach the sermon. The Ladies' Industrial Relief society is to make the time one of doing good for the poor of the city, when it is antici pated that all having contributions of clothing will take them to that service. It is hoped the offering will be 01 such a nature as will en able the ladies to prosecute their no ble work among the needy of the community as they are desirous of doing and have planned to do. At Trinity church there will be services at 10 a. m. and 7:30 p. m. At the morning service Rt. Rev. William Stevens Pe'rrv, bishop of Iowa, will preach. Ueneral ObaervaacM.
