DEED EXCHANGED AST) PAID FOR. The Rasmassen Property Gats Over to the treat Order far T.430-AB Admirable Location far the rat-pose tieelgaed As surance of Removal. The deed transferring the Rasnius- en property at the corner if Third aveuue and Fifteenth street to the Modern Woodmen of America, was made a matter of record today. Toe Attors some weeks ago referred ex. tensivelv to the successful outcome of the negotiations between the repre sentatives ot the older in this city and Mr. Rassmussea, and the latter has since came in from Califorria to close ap the deal. Through Jackson ec tiurnt, representing the Woodmen, and Adair l'leasauts in behalf cf Mr. Kasniussen, the transaction whs to. day completed. The property in eludes dimensions of 93 leet on Ttird avenue by 150 feet on Fifteenth street, and passes into the hands of the Woodmen in consideration of 17,450. a check for which on the treas urer of the order was placed in Mr. Itaaniussen's hands last evening. In the purchase of this property the society of Modern Woodiuen of America has made an admirable se lection. The location is the best imaginable, convenient to the new postofhee, while the cilices are sufli cienlly remote from the busy thor oughfares to insure comparative quiet to the woiking forces. The oodmen ouicers having purchased the ground outright have thown two things. The first is that the order, which at its last meeting ap propriated funds for the bnildiog, pref-rs to be independent of local contributors, and those therefore who have generously made subscrip tions to the fund for the site can let them stand for a grand d nionstra- tion when the corner tone for the prize so long struggled for is laid. Head Offices Coming-. The art in the second place shows the confidence or the head ollicers in the ultimate triumph of tie order over the obstacles that have been thrown in the wav of its carrvins oat its own will to remove from Ful ton to Kock Island. The obstruc tionism probably realize as well as any that their fight is hopeless, but they are now merely seeking to re tard the removal, for it is believed the ruling of the lower court dissolv ing the injunction will be promptly sustained ny me higher court when it reaches it, and that the order will be free to remove its seat of govern ment to i's twice selected city.

Chief of Police Etzal Makes as Early MoiiiIdjc Catch. Chief of Police Etzel was up with old sol this morning and before the dew had bid farewell to the moon he might hava been seen strollioe along the river lank. To those who saw his mysterious movements it might be explained that he was only there as a spectator. He heard about the lire across the river during the night and he came down like other carious folks to get a peep at the remains if possible. But while meandering up toward the station the chief became inter ested in a pair of young fellows one of them colored who were going through some rather peculiar maneu vers. They would separate occa sionally, and a few blocks farther on they wouli crnie together again. The chief immediately suspected something wrong. So when the pair reached Sixteenth street he pulled ihem. But on searching them he was dis appointed, as they were in possession of nothing of value, as he suspected, although the colored fellow had nu merous articles which it was evident came to him by unfair dealing. The pair told a story ot leaving Chi cago on account of no work, and said that they were headed for nowhere in particular. They were released and. instructed to shake this commu nity. THE ENCAMPMENT ENDS. Commander Cochran's Address the Feat, nre of the Closlns; Day. The feature of the afternoon ot the closing day of the first annual re union ot the veterans of the Tenth Congressional district yesterday was the address by Hon W. U. Cochran, of Sullivan, department commander ot the Illinois U. A. K. Mr. Coch ran's address was extensive and elo quent as well as largely patriotic. Ha termed it a sermon and it partook of the nature of a plea for the perpe tuation of the institutions which grew out of the varand the advance ment of the lessons such as are in culcated by the old soldiers, of right and justice for which the war was fought. He urged the instilling in the minds of the young of the prt the old soldiers took iu the civil strife, that tbey may know that like the veterans they have a part in the memories of that awful struggle. The young people in Illinois today are equal to these of former genera tions, but they should have the doc trine of true patriotism preached to them by those who fought for it. Short addresses were also made by Col. Clements and Capt. Freer and letters of regret from invited guests were read by Secretary Qayle frm Gen. Harrison. Gen. R. J. Oglesby, Gov. Altgeld, Gen. T. J. Henderson, W. A. Northcott, John R. Tanner, Joe Fifer, T. E. Milchrist and a tele gram from Gen. J. C. Black.

Fifth Ward Itnll Dog; Meets Waterloo in the Woods. Twc canines fought a bloody bat tle in the woods south ot the city last night. A delegation of the- fa vored witnessed the mill, which re sulted in the defeat of "Brannigan," the terror of his race in the "Fifth ward. The owner of "Urannigan" had al ways eonsidered his beast about the finest that ever crossed the kind's highway. And "Brannigan" has sustained his reputation in many battles. But another Fifth ward dog fanci r became the possessor of an animal a short time ago which he said could put anything in the town under the sod. Brannigan V owner heard of this and last night's go was the result. The location of the battle grounds was a short distance south of the residence section of the citv and right umler the. eves of the police.

Babcock, 1725 Second avenae IRRESISTIBLE IKE. Clement of Carbondale Before a Chilly Crowd. FLAG AND FLAMBEAU FUBOB. Hearing That ho Was to HaraDi.ee, the Pious Pi luce Preferred Net to Participate -Trled to Talk Tariff, hat Made to Moat Money A Sorry Mpeetacle. Republicans held a seance at the corner ot Eighteenth street and Sec ond avenue last night. A Hag bear ing photographs said to resemble the appearances of the champions of the grand old party was boosted, and Ike Clements, the silvery-locked shouUr from Carbondale. expounded repub lican doctrine and' arraigned the democratic party until everyone in the crowd had the chills and the torches began to gasp for want of oil. It was the Lincoln club's doings. Of course that organization with its antiquated bird led the procession. The "yellow heads" carried up the rear, bat with a noticeable degree of displeasure. They also had counte nances like G o'clock in the morn ing and many of the members re fussed to don the regalia because the opposing organization was the "whole thing." The Lincclns were accompanied by their auxiliaries, the plow shop and Hebrew clubs. The McKinley drillers were obliged to take dust from all of these. Some fireworks were exploded while the marchers passed up Second avenue. The procession paus-.d for awhile in front of the Harper house, where the llaiubeaus did the war dance for the edification of the distinguished gen tlemen who were booked to make talks from the two-by-four band stand which had been erected on the corner of Eighteenth street and Sec ond avenue. And then the band played a few bars of -Ben Bolt." The selection was appropriate. It was about as solemn and chilly act ing crowd of campaigners as ever greeted a public speaker. Arriving ai me platform Marry Carse asked the assemblage to listen for a mo ment. He was sorry to announce that Congressman Prince, who had been slated as one of the prin cipal speakers, had been suddenlv called away early in the evening. And the band played. "There is One Vacant Chair." But the chairman said he had an other gentleman who would do. It was Ike Clements. So Ike mounted a chair and began his harangue. f.one Winded Talk. Mr. Clements talked for just two hours and a half and his auditors knew about as ranch when he con eluded as when he began. Ike did his Des t. He means well; but like all the rest belonging to bis crowd. he unloads too much shenanagan for bis hearers. They get onto his curves before he proceeds very far. The speaker said the democrats were trying to make the money question the issue of the nresent campaign. He wanted to know whnt was the matter with the tariff measure, Discovering that the crowd would not warm up on the tariff qiestion Mr. Clements proceeded to tell how disastrous would be the success of the democratic party to the wage earners, lie lolaied the working men and told them how gal lantly the Canton protectionist was fighting . for their cause. and how if Bryan was elected their wages would be cut in twain as a consequence of cheap money follow ing me tree and unlimited coinage ot silver. He ranted on in sympa thetic terms for the "poor laboring man" until it became tiresome, and the little flush of enthusiasm which would occasionally greet one of his climaxes died away, and it was necessary for the reception commit tee to ass the band to make a racket whenever the speaker would strike an attitude to keep htm from getting inn chilis. Mr. Clements finally let up when he heard the arsenal peal forth 10 oeus, ana for which he was accorded a vote of thanks by the audience. There was no more speaking. And the band played a medley.
