Samuel Alacbuler and Others. Abraham Lincoln, the patriot mid man. was remembered last evening by the Rock Island Club, which join ed with pet pie of his native state and of the nation in bestowing laure's'of love and reverence at his shrine. It was the second Lincoln observ ance at the clubhouse, and brought together, aside from the members, several distinguished gentlemen from abroad, including Hon. .lames II. Rck els, pre: ident f the Commercial Na tional bank, Chicago, and Hon. Sam uel Alschuler, cue of the leading bar risters i f Chicago and who two years ago was the deim cratie candidate for governor of Illinois. Accompanying Mr. Kckels from Chicago were J. C. MeKeon and K. M. Landis. Letters of regret were read from (!v, S. R. Van Sant, of Minnesota; (lov. Richard Yates, nf Illinois; Gov. Cummins, of Iowa; Senalors Hopkins. Illinois, Al lison and Dolliver. Iowa. Col. V. . Low den. of Chicago, and Congress men I!. F. Mar&h and G. Y. Prince. One hundred and ten persons were seated. This was the number limited, tiie tables having been arranged in the billiard room. The room ww ex quisitely dee rate 1 in the national colors, the scheme having been con ceived by .lust us R. Tuckis. Rusts of Lincoln graced the west and north wails, on the east wall there was a huge oil painting of the martyred president, while in other sections of the room there were hung likenesses of McKiniey, Roosevelt and Logan. Greenery was intertwined with Amer ican flags, with which the walls were draped, and the light from the incan descents radiated through tinsel cov erings of re I. w hite and blue, pro ducing a beautiful color e fleet. The sejving -f the banquet was begun at s o'clock. Manager R. R. Lawlor oul sliining his former efforts in this di reclion, the following being the menu: Acadian Cream Soup. Manhattan. Celery. Salted Almonds. Olives. Whitefish. Maitre d'llotei. Parisian Potatoes. Ilaut Sa.iterne. Tenderloin of Reef, a la Cherron. French l'eas. Potatoes Marchioness. Ice Cream. Silver Cake. Tomato Waldorf.

Head, president i f the club, ollicintcd ;:s toat master, and. as on former occasions. showed himself mot admirably fitted. After dwell ing on the ccasion for the gathering, the honoring of the memory of a son of IKimis. whose manhood, patriot ism and self-sacritiee ha 1 won him tin highest office in the land, rising from a position of obscurity without the heritage even of a noble lineage. Mr. Head prefaced the introduction of each speaker by relating some feat ure of the hitter's life in a manner that never failed to surprise the one at whom it was directed, and brought dov n t he house. Mr. Kckels was the first speaker. "For more than forty years the pe ple of the world huve turned with af fectionate remembrance to him (Lin coln) and poured out their earnest expressions of appreciation of his memory.' said the speaker. "With out regard to politics, creed or nati'. nality we ought to turn to him. for of all the great citizens of patriot ic endeavor, unselfish effort, he tow ers above them all." He was great, the speaker continued, in his love of law. patriotism, for that which makes i:p true Hh.erty. Of all the great acts and ordinances there was none great er than the one which formed the northwest territory. ut of which grew the state t:f Illinois. The eman cipation pr elamatioii. to which Lin coin aflixed hN signature, that the negro should be released from bond age. ha taken its place alongside the two great ordinances that became ef fective in the years before its crea tion the magna oharta of England and the declaration of independence. Out of all the struggles and privations that were hN it is no wonder that he shonl 1 have moved to make this mas tor stroke in lvehalf of human rights. Illinois, i 11 all its traditions, before his time and since, has been a state where liberty on the part of .citizens had prevailed, but who shall say anyone contributed more than him. Mr. Kck els doubled if there live! a poet whose pen or a painter whose brush could do justice to Lincoln. He was a commoner, hut he drew to hint al! classes. He was n iover of his cuin try. a lover of his race. He believed in ihe supremacy of the law. that law that finds itself written in the heart of a true manhood. U' li ve of law and order could be studied with profit by every man. voting and old. Example of Poiibl!ltlc-. Linci In was the best example of the pos-dbdities cf American manhood. Without education r the prestige f a m lde name. h made for .himself that which today was withiu the reach of every man who was willing to abide by law an 1 patriotism and embrace opportunities as they were offered to him. Out of great dix-our- 'agemcnt he emerged the leader of bis people, the preserver of a nation. Sue cess would come to any man who had the courage and fixedness of purpose to persevere and .pursue to the end his undertakings. There were great deeds to be accomplished in these piping times of peace as there were dining the civil strife. "What we need." said Mr. Eckels, "is a revival of patriotism, not produced by the tramp of soldiers, but an expression that finds its loudest action in each citizen inquiring of himself if he is doing his full dutv towards his fellows, his na tion and his state. The malcontent who is carping against the adminis tration of the state and national laws should ask himself if he is doing his duty. You cannot build up a state or nation until you have first been puri fied and built up. The aggregate must be an expression of the individ ual's total." Mr. Kckels said he was an optimist. Lincoln was not a pessi mist, but sin optimist. Mr. Kckels be lieved the rptiniist was the best pa triot this country could produce. Lin coln believed in Ood and trusted the American people, and the end of his. administration saw the union preserv ed. When he died, the pathos of his death and the heroism of his life took hold cf the people, who thought of him no longer as a republican parti san, but as an American citizen, a pa triot and a man. Form by Rnxdwle. Robert Rexdale. of this city, recited an original poem entitled "Xo More the Rugle Calls to Arms:" Reside the martyr's storied tomb, 1 dream of battles wc n; The armies pass in dim review, Reyond the setting sun. And dory guards the nation's dead, Where flows the Sangamon. Unto this hallowed spot of earth. The first spring blossom comes; No more the bugle calls to arms. Nor sound of throbbing drums; Rut safe within the cannon's mouth The drowsy beetle hums. Far down the vista of the past, I see the senate grave I hear the clash of fierce debate Around the shackled slave; Again I see the fighting hosts. The fleets upon the wave. Rut Lincoln's voice at dettysburg, Clear ringing through the years. Hath naught of anger for the foe. Xo note of servih fears; I feel the pnthoF of his words, The tribute of his tears. "Fourscore and sever years ago. Our fathers gave to thee This country of the starry flag. ' Ci nceived in liberty And dedicated to the thought That all men should be free. "Xow- we engage in civil war. To test by death and pain. If such it nation, s.o cs.neeived. Is destined fo retaain; "To prove that t lies-5', our honored dead. Shall not have died in vain. "And we have come to dedicate A portion of this field. To be a final resting place For him who would not yield Rut. dying as the Spartan died. Came home upon his shield." The tide of battle surges on. Death rides amid the fray; A million hearths are desolate. Their idols torn away; The mother moutneth for her sons Among the bine and gray. Thus do I dream, O. Sangamon, Reneath this wooded shade. The story of the sacrifice On war's red siltar laid And thus I sing thy martyr's name. Whose glory shall not fade. Mr. Rexdale responded to an encore, reciting "The Homage of the Drum." Mr. AUchaler on "Blue and Gray." "The Rltie and the Oray" was the toast assigned Mr. Alschuler. who be gan by showing something of the lighter side of Lincoln's life, repeat ing a number i f stories that were at tributed to him. In Lincoln's stories was displayed his real philosophy. He was a great man because he did not tower above other men. because he was essentinlly human. As some one had sail. Ood must have loved the common people, for He made so many of them. Many of the acts of Lincoln were made known thri ugh his stor ies. His stories gave an index to his chaiactcr. He had a horror of the ofiice-seeker. Once when a mild 'case of smallpox was ilis-covered in his family, he notified his secretary to invite all the office-seekers to come to him: that in w he had something for all of them. Turning to the causes lending i:p to the civil conflict. Mr. Abchuler said the bone of contention had always been there. It was noth ing new. It was a festering sore that affected both the north and south, and no I'niteil Slates could long have ex isted had not bet n performed that gieat operation reimving the sore from the body politic. It was remov ed by force of circumstances, but the blue and fhe gray went forth from the north and the south, fighting and living, that their country migbt live on in' unity, peace and proserity. Bout for th Tnwtnwtrr. "The Toastmaster" was a subject treated most ehquently by .ludge Nathaniel French, of DavenHrt. who traced the ev lution of this most .es jential f unctir nary, and concluded with a witty arraignment of the per sonal attributes of the president of the club who was acting in that ca pacity Iat evening. There was orchestral nd vocal mu sic, most of the selections being of a patriotic order. The banquet adjourn ed with the single.- bv the audience of "Marching Through Georgia, the GETS NINE MONTHS William McCreliis is Found Guilty of Petit Larceny by Jury. HEAD TURNS STATE'S EVIDENCE Latter Escapes IVith Sixty Days Oiber Matters in . Court. William McCreliis. found guilty of petit larcenry, the jury returning its verdict this morning fixing the value of the stolen property at $14.37".:.. was sentenced by Judge F. D. Ramsay to serve nine months in the county jail and pay a fine of SI. McCreliis was indicted for grand larceny, and con viction on this charge would have sent Jiis to the penitentiary. Louis Head, indicted for the same offense, the theft of copper wire from the Central I'nion Telephone com pany, of which corporation both 'de fendant were employes, turned state's evidence, and after McCreliis had received his sentence, withdrew his plea of not guilty, entered when ho was arraigned recently, and plead ed guilty to petit larceny. .ludge Ramsay sentenced him to CO days in the county jail. Arnold Motion Overrated. The motion to quash the indict ment against Charles If. Arnold for working a confidence game in having time checks cashed while employed as storekeeper-' for the Rock Island road at Davenport, was overruled by Judge Ramsay. Mrs. Glllapn Given Divorce. Lydia (iillapp was divorced from .lames Gillapp on the grounds of in fidelity. Two years ago, while Gillapp was living in Pleasant Valley with .lyra Skinner, a child was bom tot-he couple. Oillapp stole away with the child, taking it in a basket to Free port, where he was apprehended and arrested. The child is now at the Union Mi: sioti on Aiken street. Finriley Trial xt XVrrU.
