The mad dog has put in appearance :i (his seetii n. according to a story '. liich comes from Whiteside county. rhcre is a mad dig : ea re near Fcn- ten. Several an:mals have i.ied from the rabies, and one man was bitten bv a dog which it is thought had been li'oeiilated with the deadly germs of hydrophobia. A dog became suddenly mad a day r two ago. The beast had been ill or some time, but svmptoius of ra ies did n t appear, and the animal was at large. After the signs which indicate tin- presence of hydrophobia became apparcui if was learned that the dog had been about the neighbor hood and had bitten several others. These dogs, in turn, were sei.ed with the malady, and cattle, hogs and horses were bitten as a consoijiioiice. Three horses belonging to Mr. Fiiuii- II til were bitten, and died of rabies, and it is aiil about twenty-four head of lugs a re dead or dying of rabies. Others may have been inoculated and Ihere is no telling to what extent the germs have been spread. Otto Thompson is the name of the veiling man who was bitten by a dog. which animal may have been one of those suiTcring from rabies. So far no dangerous symptoms have appear ed, but the victim and his friends await the outcome with ei nsiderable anxiet v. NATIONAL GUARD TO LOSE COMPANY OF ENGINEERS ( apt. Frank H.

PAPER IS EXCITED Truth About Late Republican Convention Works Union Into Terrible Stew. SPEAKING FOE THE COMBINE Vain Attempt to Salve the Wounds Inflicted on Rank and File of Party in Country. The Union, in its excitement this morning over the revelation of the actual state of affairs in the late re publican county convention, attrib utes to Sheriff Y. G. Heider an expres sion relative to The Argus that this paper does not believe him guilty of. Mr. Heider is in Chicago today, and therefore could not be seen, but the tactics and talk of a hoodlum have been so far from his nature, as far as The Argus has been able to know him. that it prefers meanwhile to rest its judgment on what it has seen of him rather than take the Union's word for what he is alleged to have said. There was nothing that can be construed in what The Argus said of the proceeding'- justifying an outbreak on Mr. Heider's part and no attack was made mi hint whatever. The statement ap pearing in The Argus, and which out side papers have also made, w: s thai the presence of the sheriff in the con vention alone prevtnted a riot. This assertion, which is complimentary to the sheriff rather than otherwise, has not and cantu t be successfully con tradicted. YVhilc some of the delegates left in disgust, there were plenty of the delegates, at whom the outrage of the entire proceeding was aimed, who remained to the last, ami if the threats that had been made to remove C. J. Searle from the house because he was merely standing on his parliamentary rights, had not been piieted before any attempt was made to execute them, there would have been a serious conflict. It was the sheriff solely who prevented serious trouble. I0ipsiir Hurt (Inllty. There is nothing that so disturbs the guilty as exposure of its guilty deeds. The outrage committed on decent republicans from the beginning to the end oi the county convention cannot be undone bv denia The fa- vorite expression the Union has of late resorted to in discussing such af fairs does not in any way strengthen Ihe defense it is attempting to make. It is easy recklessly to employ the word "liar" as applied to anyone that may take exception to certain ways of doing, and the freipienov with which the morning paper has used this epi thet recently is pretty direct evidence, if such were wanting, of the source of ils editorial an ! political inspiration. Anent the county convention, the tac tics of the combine were to browbeat from the opening the proceedings. The forcing of Kennedy as chairman j was a defiance. The thr It ling of till motions in the interc.-t of iti.it and parliamentary practice was in strict adherence to the program to rule the situation whether right or wrong. As the whole convention proceeding was high handed the result cannot fail to prove otherwise than weak. There werc three things the combine set out to accomplish -control the conven tion, the stale's attorney and the county committee. It did all three. The combine will again find itself face to face with the people, who are not to be intimidated or bulldoed. PAUL W. BISSICK STEALS TO AID HIS YOUNG FRIEND Paul W. Jiissick and Charles M. Han son returned to their home in Du buijue last evening in charge of the latter boy's father. Mr. Hanson is proprietor of a commissi) n house and is one of the wealthy men of the eitv. I'.issiek was employed as collector by him. I'.issiek and his son Charles are chums. Charles got into a scrape with a gill. It required $2.10 to avoid a scandal. Charley was without funds and was afraid1 to approaeli hi- father on the dillieulty into which he had gotten. I.issiek was his friend. I'.is iik had the money needed after a day's collections. The case was set-tl-d and the girl left the city. I'.issiek intended to wait a few days and then make a clean breast of the affair to his chum's father. Put he found that he did not possess the courage, and he and Hanson decided that the safest move was to leave town. The boys were firgiven by Mr. Hanson. May Lane. Pell Howard. Lottie Jen sen. May Drown, Tunic Kimball and Paul Smith were each fined for dis orderly conduct in the police court today. Aibert llernham. a stranger, was ar rested by Officer Sidney Pearson this morning while in the act of trying to sell to Mike Mintz a bicycle he had stolen from D. L. Noftsker.
