the time of the election was changed
from tbe odd to the even years dur

Judge Adams is a native of Juniata
eountj, Pennsylvania, where he was
admitted to the bar in. 1868. His pre
paration for his career consisted of a
course at. Jefferson college, now
Washington and Jefferson college, in
Washington county, Pennsylvania.
He spent one year in, Wooster, Ohio,
removing to Rock Island in the fail of
1869.' For five years after coming to
this city he was connected with the
firm of Osborn & Curtis. Later he
formed a partnership with M,M. Stur
geon nnder the style of Stnrgeon &
Adams, which endured till Jhe senior
partner was elected state's, attorney.

Judge Adams has been reelected" in
his present capacity five:, time serv

duties of office. In that. time great
changes have taken place and the

During the last quarter of a cen

in the county has passed in some man

time in the trial of common law
His administration has been singu

himself and the public in general, a
fact which must be attributed not
only to his abilitj- and knowledge of
the law but to Ms tact and fairness
and his fidelity in preserving the dig

decisions in matters of law been re

been appealed to a higher court.

The Athletic association at Augus

the result of this season's operations.
That is, the amount expended has
exceeded the total receipts by that
Under ordinary circumstances this
might be taken as a very discourag
ing outlook for tlie close of the first
fall in which an aggressive campaign
in this line of work has been conduct
ed. Such, however, is not the 'case,
and the sentiment in favor, of push
ing on till Augustana attains a stand
ing in athletics in keeping with her
reputation in purely intellect ual at
tainments was never more pronounc
ed than now.
The financial showing is not con
sidered discouraging in view of the
fact that the association had practic
ally nothing to begin with and has
therefore been to the expense of se
curing a complete outfit to equip the
football squad. It has nil been up
hill. work in getting the team in con
dition aTid the patronage of th pub
lic could scarcely be expected to be as
great as it would had the school tak
en part prominently in athletics here
tofore. With the showing of this fall
to look back to the games in future
are expected to draw a more liberal
patronage both from the tri-cities
and when the team is abroad.
Xegotiations are already underway
to secure a coach for another year.
Paul Coldfon, who has done such
good work here this fall, has been
made an offer, and there are others
high in athletics who are under "con
sideration. 'Hie men are preparing
to put in an aggressive season in the
gymnasium with basketball, indoor
baseball, and an indoor" track team
may be organized.

With the revival in athletics there
has also been one in a different direc
tion and it is now assured that Au-
j gustana pupils will have a college pa
