That William McKinley will be the
choice ot the St. Louis convention
for president is generally believed.
The uncertainty which surrounds
the democratic situation, however,
makes it hazardous to prophesy as
to the presidential standard-bearers
of that party. There are a few ven
turesome individuals, however, who
are willing to make a prediction as
to what the outcome of the Chicago
convention will be as to candidates.
The latest slate maker is a" cabinet
officer, who is quoted as follows by
the Washington correspondent of the
If McKinley be nominated at St.
Louis." said a cabinet officer, shov
ing aside his correspondence and
leaning forward on his desk. -I pre
dict that William C. Whitney will be
nominated by the democrats for
president, and Ben T. Cable, of Illi
nois, for vice president."
The official paused a moment and
then leaning back in his chair, said:
Whitney wants to be president.
He does not want to be nominated only
to be defeated. I believe, with many
other democrats, that though our
party is not in the best of condition
this time, it will be able to get to
gether and by the means of a thor
ough reorganization and with the
adoption of a sound-money platform
at Chicago, defeat McKinley. This
prediction of mine is not based on
any direct information from Whitney.
But I know his opinion on the situa
tion and that under certain eitcum
stances he would become a candidate
for the nomination. To my mind,
there is no doubt that in the event of
his becoming a candidate he will be
successful. I know, too, that he
would desire a good running mate
and that appreciating the necessity
of having one member on the ticket
from the west, would seleot National
Committeeman Cable in preference
to any one else.
Are Cloaa Friends.
'lie and Cable are very close and
intimate friends. He regards Cable
a the ablest politician in the west.
He has a very high personal regard
for him, and' together they would, I
believe, make a very strong fight.
Of course, it does not necessarily fol
low that a man who is nominated for
president can select the nominee for
vice president. But Whitney, you
niuftt remember, is more of a politi
cian than any man who has been
nominated in recent years. He is a
shrewd, careful and calculating man
and would look after details which
others would ignore. Senators Brice
and Gorman, together with many
other members of the national demo
cratic committee, are for Whitney
for president, if he would accept the
nomination, and both are strong ad
mirers of Cable. I may be wrong in
my prediction. Tou have asked me
for my opinion, so I have given it."
What does the president think?"
I have not asked the president
hia opinion ot the outcome of the
convention. I know, however, he
would cheerfully use his influence in
Mr. Whitney's behalf, and that he
regards Ben Cable with a kindliness
second only to Lamont and Whitney.
If you think this prediction of mine
worth printing, without, of coarse,
using my name, just cut it out and
paste it in your hat. and look at it
the morning after the nominations
Raffalo Bill la Coining-.
Many inquiries have been made at
this office since the first announce
ment of the coming of Buffalo Bill's
Wild West and Congress of Rough
Riders ot the world, if Col. W. F.
Cody (Buffalo Bill) himself will be
present. It can be stated positively
that he will take part in both after
noon and evening exhibitions. The
further surprising statement may be
made with equal positiveness. and
that is that tbe exhibitions will be
absolutely exact duplicates, man for
man and horse for horse, as they
were at the World's Fair at Chicago.
Those who saw them at Chicago msy
be inclined to doubt the possibility
of transporting so vast an exhibition
from city to city in a night, but it
was done over 160 times last year
throughout the eastern states, and it
was on time in every town and city
without one single exception. With
tie even superior railroad facilities
in the west it may be relied upon
absolutely to be on time when it
comes here Wednesday. June 17.

Children asng and danced before
the footlights at Harper's theatre
last evening for the benefit of the In
dustrial Home association. An elab
orate prodflctioa of '-Our Country,"
a fonr-act spectacular covering im
portant historical events from the
discovery of America in 1492 by
Christopher Columbus, np to the
twentieth century, was given and
in a manner reflective of great credit
on the sweet-faced boys and
girls assuming the various roles as
well as Prof. Clendeain, under whose
personal direction the piece was
staged. He is also the author ot
Our Country." Appended is the
cast of characters:
Christopher Columbus. . Master Jamealferfleld
Ferdinand, Kin? ot Spain
Master Charles Pratt
Isabella. Castile, Queen of Spain
Miss Louella Stoddard
Miri of Honor Florence Smythe
MaKXs or Honor - (j,,, HeUs
Monks Father Perez. Master llennte WQson.

,- I Master Ernest Nichols
rages Master Milton Jones
Chancellor -Master Clyde Porter
Indian Chief Harry Larkin
Members of Royally Silas Spnit-ue. Amos
Latte, Carl Kirkman. Taeo
Frey. Oran Kyan.
The scenes which were given with
glittering effect the costumes being
specially handsome were inter
spersed with some neatly executed
dances and marches; and there were
vocal numbers by Sadie Mcllvain.
Milton Jones. Maud Bennett and Mat
tie Jones. A novel feature of the
specialties introduced in connection
with the piece was the shadow
dance which afforded much amuse
ment, especially to the younger folk.
The calcium light was employed in
all ot the scenes and dances and con
trasted with the pretty faces and
neat costumes presented, a bewilder
ing sight. And in fact" the piece
was in every particular a success
not a single hitch occurring as is
invariably the ease at entertain
ments of this character, where so
many little tots are to be looked
But one thing occasions any room
for criticism and that is the small
ness of the audience. Tet it
was not so small,, either, when the
many other attractions on here now
are taken into consideration. But
"Our Country" deserves better pat
ronage. It is given for a cause in
which all ere interested. There is a
debt on that handsome building at
the corner of Twenty-first street and
Third avonue, which will ever stand
as a monument to the industry and
thrift of the laboring people of" Rock
Island, who have banded together to
pay for it. But they need a little
assistance. This entertainment is
given for that purpose. It will be
given tonight and tomorrow after
noon. New specialties will be intro
duced at each performance. Both
should be well attended.
THE DAVENPORT LEVEE.
Taking The Coa Frvtm stock Island Work
. Is Coins: Steadily Ahead.
The levee improvement discussion
on this side of the river has led not
only to the calling np of the same
matter in Davenport, but of the put
ting of it through. The Leader ot
last evening says:
'The work on the levee improve
ment is progressing nicely. The
work between Brady and Main streets
is now about completed and a large
portion of tbe force has been trans
ferred to that portion between Perry
and Rock Island streets. However,
there is quite a force of men at work
on the extension of Brady street to
the water's edge. The street gutters
have been pnt in place on the west
side of the street and today will see
the work pretty well completed oa
the east side. There remains yet to
be done the placing of macadam be
tween the gutters. When the grad
ing is completed along the levee the
entire river front will be covered
with macadam where it is needed
and for the money Davenport will
have one of the most presentable
river fronts in the state."
The street intersection on Main
street has been paved for years with
sandstone to the water's edge. The
other improvements are but supple
mentary to this.
