Memorial day, the sacred occasion when just and honorable tribute is paid to a nation's dead, was appro priately observed in Bock Island to day; The order of the day began with the annual exercises at the county soldiers' monument in court house square. These were preceded dt a procession, which formed on Third avenue and Sixteenth street under the direction ol Marshal of the Day C. J.

Medill, Jr., presided in the ceremonies on the platform near the county monument, the pro gram opening with a bogle call to the assemblv, and the rendition of "America" by Bleuer's band. Then Rev. R. F. Sweet, rector of Trinity chnrch, offered prayer, speaking as follows: O, God. who art the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord ol lord: the Almighty timer 01 nations; we adore and mag nify Thy glorious name for all the great things which Thou hast done us: we render Tnee thanks for the goodly heritage which Thou bast given us: for the civil and religions privileges wnicn we enjoy, ana ur toe multiplied manifestations cf Thy favor toward us. Grant that we may show forth our thankfulness for these, Thy mercies, by living ia reverence 01 thy almighty power and dam in Ian, in humble reliance on Thy good ness and mercy, and in holy obedi enoe to . Ihy righteous laws. 1 re serve, we beseech lbee, to our country the blessings of peace: re store them to nations deprived of them, and secure them to all the people of the earth. May the King dom of the Prince of Pescecome, and reigning in the hearts and lives of men; unite them in holy fellowship; that so their only strife may be, who shall sho forth with most humble and holy fervor the praises of Him who hath loved them, and made them kings and priests unto Uod. We implore my messing on an legislative, ju dicial and executive authority, that they may have grace, wisdom and nnderstandmg, so to discbarge their duties as most enectallv to pro. mote Thy glory, tbe interests cf true religion and virtue and the peace, good order and welfare of this state and nation; we prav for those whom we especially commemnrat this da;, whose lives were so unselfishly given to tne great cause 01 country and home. May tha lesson of their de votion be deeply imprinted on our hearts, and may their graves be ever watered with the tears of a grateful people. Bless all those who still survive as witnesses of what men can do for the support of law and order, make tbeir declining years happy with the tnbu e of a country's gratitude, and finally bring them to peaceful rest in Jesus. O, AI mighty God, who has never failed those who nave put tneir trust in Thee; and dost honor the people who honor Thee; imprint on our hearts, e beseech inee, a deep and bahitual sense of this great truth that the only security for the continuance of the blessings which we enioy con' sists in our acknowledgment of Thy soveriga and gracions Providence and in humble and holy submission to the gospel of Thy son. Je-us Christ; to Whom all power is given on heaven and earth, and Who is one with the Father and the Holy Ghost in the eternal Godhead, our Mediator and Redeemer. . Amen. The 11. O. quartet sang "We Gather Here With Beverence." and Mayor Medill made a short address. in which he said that this aseem blage met . today for the purpose of paying tribute to the vast army of unnumbered dead, who gave id their lives that the nation might live. He apoke of the propriety of such a custom, when we review tbe memories of their acts of valor, and In a feeling manner mentioned the parting aeenes of loved ones whose home-coming was waited for in vain. In closing1 he paid a high tribute to the old soldiers who preserved a single flag for the grandest nation on earth. Tka Otatl f taw Day. Hon. L D. Thomason, of Aledo. then delivered tha oration at tha day. ' Of one thing I am truly eon- vinced," said the speaker, in begin ning, "that these exercises are not held for the advancement of any party or politics. The true mission of today ia to treat of patriot ism." It is proper on an oc casion like this, Mr. Thomason said to devote some attention and time to the formative period in this union. He then went back to the revolutionary times and said that during the progress of the war for independence, tne colonies nan agreed to the articles of confedera tion. They were a grand and worthy document, yet in many respects they were inadequate to tne general good and welfare of the people. They represented a loose union of in dependent commonwealths. They admitted the sovereignty of each state, and hence it was inevitable that they must be revised. But Instead of a revision they were dispensed with, and n tneir steaa was araiteu and adopted what is now our federal constitution. Thus the government machinery was set in motion, with th9 lather 01 bis coun try at its head. Unfortunately, there naa crept in among our people a curse which was to test tbe strength 01 the constitu tion, and shake the very foundations of onr government. Beautiful indeed was the garment of liberty, woven with the warpen woof of colonial struggles, but an evil genius threw into the shuttle that wove the go den cloth of freedom, the scarlet thread of bondage. The annihilation of thia curse resulted in one of the most ghastly strifes that ever sev ered and slaughtered tbe men of the nation. Mo civil war waa ever waged among the people of. a conn try without having the effect of re forming some of the principles of government of that nation. The bnai result 01 such reformation was either to ennoble or demoralize that race of people. lf K form Wlthoat KcvalaUoa. No great and everlasting reform was ever accomplished, the speaker maintained, without a revolution. More especially was this true of t past than the present. Ue then spoke of the gathering to call to mind the loving memories of the past. whose recollection will linger like the sunlight on the water lillies' bed. Go ing back to the days of '61, he spoke of the odious slave laws, that sold human beings like cattle, tore the child from the arms of the weeping mother, and when the bay of tha bloodhounds was the only music of the nation. He followed the boys in blue on their weary marches over the southern battlefields until the climax at Appomattox, when 800.000 bondsmen were sprinkled with the baptism of liberty. Passing on through the nation's history he com paced the country of today with the conditions 3D years ago.'and spoke of the glories of American achieve ment. with all the invention of modern times the United States has placed the results of her genius in every civilized country. He spoke to the old soldiers in a touching manner, referring to tbeir devotion to the flag, and mentioned the high station the United States enjojs among the nations of the earth, for which these veterans, by their noble d.eds, carved the foundation. In this connection he called attention to tbe duty we owe to these defenders of the republic, the last of whom will soon cross the river of life and bade all to lead them gently by friend ship's hand down to the eJge of the waters of the silent river. In closing the speaker said that a Decoration day address was intom p etc without a reference to Abra ham Lincoln. He then recounted the life of him of whom he spoke, and paid a elowic? tribute, over- flawing with lofty sentiments to his undaunted courage and fidelity to those principles that placed him on the pinnacle of fame. His address had tbe closest attention and was able, eloquent and inspiring. reace to tbe Brave" was sung t)f the H.

The Rodman RiflVs tired a salute to tbe dead, the audience sang under the direction ef Profs. Housel, Bowl by and "Daugherty, "America." and with taps, the last bugle call and the benediction by Rev.

His Former Wife Arrested For Burning the House. Joseph Kipp Confesses to Having Done the Job. Developments of a startling nature are gradually coming to light in the case of tbe late Adam Alday, of Mo- line, and if what bis sons. William and Edward Alday, claim, can be substantiated by facts, someone will probably have to answer to a charge of murder. Adam Alday, who was an extensive property bolder, died in October. 1895. His residence was destroyed by fire in January, 1896. It was always looaea upon as a mys terious affair, and accusations of in- cendiarlsn were freely made. Last night, Mrs. Mary Osbar, Mr. Alday's former wife, was arrestea at her home in Davenport by Deputy Sher iff Hull. She is accused of arson. Har orellminarv hearius; waa eon. tinned bv Magistrate Stafford until June 6. ahe being released on 3i0 ha.il. which was lurntsnea dv ner hnaband. Hans Osbar. and Peter Frle. Joseph Kipp, the old man. arrested a few daa ago, accused of setting Are to the Aider house, has con tossed his crime. In an affidavit, sworn to before County Clerk H. Kohler, May 87, Kipp says: On tbe 15th day of January.1896 I set fire to the residence of Adam Alday, at the instigation of Mrs Aldav. for a Jersey eow and f40. I chopped kindling wood, and piled it in tne cellar, being provided with five gallons tf kerosene, and broke the stairway and partition so as to give a draft even to the tower. raised the windows two inches on the upper floor, and placed all the paper and carpet, saturate witn kerosene, on the stairway, when Mrs Alday was about to leave for Davenport, so as to be out of the way of suspicion. The house being prepared, I told her I would not set it afire if tbe wind was not in the proper direction; late at night entered the house, and set it afire under tbe stair way of the main honse and then untfer the kitchen. Then I went home and remained there until between 6 and 7 o'clock. The two trunks were inside of the building near the door when I went up in the morning; not burned and contents saved. I was there off and on two weeks in the day time until about fonr days before Adam Aider's death. During that time I saw the doctor there once before he died. We fed him whisky, soda ater and ginger ale. We gave him no medicine dur ing the time I was there. I did cot hear the doctor say that be must not have anything but whisky. I did not want the cow, because it would arouse suspicion, and William Alday was to sell the cow and I was to get the proceeds, but I did not get them, he keeping the money.1' AstoHUOeatk In his will, Adam Alday left three lots apiece to hia aons, Edward and William. The remainder of his es tate was bequeathed t his wife-, who afterward married Hans Osbar, of Davenport. The Alday boys are now attempting to break tbe will. They have retained Hij Beerdaley and U. Searle. They charge that undue influence was exercised over their father in making the will. They also claim that his death t cauae i by foul means, alleging that poison ws administered during bis last ill- nets The aTest of Mrs. Osbar is the culmination of what was rofarrrd to in la-t night's A noes Mrs. Osbar hefore ber marriage to Adam Alday was Mrs. Reimers She was for many yeara employed in tho Alday househould Adam Alday's flrat wife died in Minnesota three years ago. tier death, which it was claimed was samewhat of a mystery, e-eated no little talk at the time. Mr. Alday was shortly afterward married to Mrs. Reimers. 9. o nun, wno wa employed as d tecive by tbe Alday boys together evidence to assist them in breaking tbe will, esys be has now discovered that the houses belonging . to Adam Aioay in Minnesota were destroyed Dy nre several years ago. The mo tive for borning tbe Moliae home stead is not stated, and who admin istered the poison, if it was admin istered. Is not clear just now, but Detective Hull claims that the coil of evidence is rapidly coming to. gether. There is some talk of exhuming naam uuay s remains.
