Names Candidate for Senator Two Years Before Expiration of Pres ent Member's Term. ! D In the fear that his reason was de serting him, William R. Mesmer. a Burlington, Iowa, primer, who came to Rock Island last week with his wife and two children, is believed to have destroyed himself. He was last seen at 1:2 o'clock Sat urday night on the Rock Island bridge. His wife has appealed to the polite to search for him. Mesmer, for 17 years was employed on the Burlington Hawk-Eye. Hu holds membership in Tyjographk al Union Xo. 75 and of Modern Woodmen Camp No. M of that city. His health has been poorly and on the advice of his physician he left Bur lington in the hope that a change of surroundings might prove beneficial. Turns lli. Wife- Hack. Meaner and his family had arranged to spend the summer with Mrs. If ea rner's mother, Mrs. Sophie Kkiuud. who conducts a boarding bouse at L'L'lm; Fourth avenue-. They arrived ai Mrs. Eklunds last week. Saturday evening at y:: Mesmer left the house, stating that he was going to the barber shop of William Furlong, two blocks wesc f Mrs. Eklund s home, to get shaved. Mrs. Mesmer walked a block wltn her husband, feeling that it would be better for him to have company in a .strange city, but he protested that he was able to care for himself, and on his urgent request the wife returned to the house. That was the last seen of Mesmer by any member of his family. He had onlv :;." cents with him. Whether he visited the barber shop could not be ascertained by Mrs. Mesmer. tension unit Mt-ilieint-. M earner's mind has been affected slightly for some time. His dementia when first noticeable was of a relig- ous turn. More recently it centered n medicine. He is of the impression thai the medicine that the physicians have been administering to him is un dermlning his reason, lie Is of a highly nervous temperament, and one f his peculiarities that will distin guish him from others is a continuous troking of bis forehead with his hand. When not at this he is either picking his teeth or paring his finger nails. Mesmer, when he left Saturday night, wore a brown striped suit, with blue gingham shirt. His hat was a derby. He has two gold front teeth. His height is E feet 1 inches and his weight 145 pounds. RIVER RIPLETS. The steamer St. Paul, which was due in this port from the north at 1U o'clock Sunday morning, did not make her appearance here until 5 o'clock this morning . She was delayed twice, once near La Crosse. Saturday night, when she was compelled to tie up for five hours on account of a den.se fog, and again for four hours at Le Claire, when she was caught in a heavy wind and rainstorm. However, these delays will not make her late out of St. Louis, where she arrives tomorrow uorning. leaving there Wednesday af crnoon. The loat landings ai the river today were busy places. The river excur sions out of and to Hock Island were liberally patronized. A conservative estimate of those who came to Rock Island on the steamer Winona from Claire and intermediate points is about three hundred people. This is the only excursion given on the river 'o this city. The .1. S took 600 people to Clinton this morning and returned his afternoon with about twice thai number, the passenger:- on board the Winona taking the hie steamer from Le Claire to Rock Island on the re 'urn trip to this city.

The socialists of the Thirty-third district held their senatorial conven tion at the Rock Island Industrial home yesterday afternoon and nom inated Nels E. L. Bohman for state senator and Paul L. Henneberg for representative. In view of the fact that the election for senator is two years off. it shows that the socialists are not as slow as people might think they are. Brother Bohman. if he labors for the cause as he is exjiected to by the brother mem bers of his party, will have covered the district several times over before the nominations of candidates by the other parties. L. S. McCabe, of this city, is the present member of the upper branch of the general assembly from this district. Whether he is to ask his parly to return him for an other term has not been learned offi cially, but it is presumed that he will try at least to live up to the record of his predecessor. Hon. William Payne, of Zuma. Mr. Henneberg is one of the pioneers in the socialistic movement in Rock Island, and is a conspicuous figure at all the met tings of that party that are held hereabout. He is a machinist by trade. Mr. Bohman is a printer em ployed at the Lutheran August ana Book Concern. Qua Hach Fires at Crowd of Children Having Celebration Near His Home.
