THE ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 190J.
3 HATr np ill a nilllin NU It Ur WARNmU Koundril at Annual Meeting of Illi nois Ij'qoor Dealer Asso elation. CYCLONIC CLOUD IS SEEN Temperance Folk Are Making More Vigorous Crusade Than Ever Before. Delegates to the 25th annual con vent ion of the I liquor Dealers' Asso ciation of Illinois, now in session at Belleville, rail it a silver jubilee. "It's a jubilee all around," said one of the delegates. "We're jubileeing here, and I stipiose some of the bar tenders left in rhar.ee at home arc holding a little private silver jubilee of their own with the cash registers." Uelleille is about the nearest ap proach to a German town to be found outside of the empire itself, and th visitors are being treated to object lessons in wide openness that would cause Carrie Nation, if she were pres ent, to swap her hatchet off for a broadax. Spenk Knitllxh I.Ik Native. Time was not so long ago that an American born person needed an inter preter if he had official business to transact in Belleville, but that is changed now. Practically every citi zen speaks English like a native of Belleville. President Maiwurm's report attract ed attention and it also sounded a note of alarm. "A dark cloud," he said, "of cyclonic force is hovering over the trade in Illinois, and although we suc ceeded in preventing the passage of tin; local option bill at our last legis lature, the work of reorganizing was immediately commenced by the Anti Saloon league, and. buoyed up with large contributions of $10,000 each from Andrew Carnegie and J. H. Heinz, unci smaller donations from thousands of others, have caused them to enlarge their headquarters anil em ploy additional force in order to carry their pet scheme at the coming session of the legislature." I. Ine I t fur l"lth. He calls upon the trade to get ready to tight the measure, and says that many liquor dealers do not realize that had if not been for the heroic work of this association during the last 25 years in defeating objectionable legis lation and in other ways protecting their rights and liberties, they would long ere this have been driven out of business. "The passage of a local option bill in Illinois," he says, "is bnt for the purpose of additig fresh burdens to the saloonkeeper. It is one of those mythical laws that may sound right in theory, but not in practice, and which are too ciften forced on us by these so Celled law and order leagues only to give annoyance and increase expenses to our governing bodies, without any corresponding improvement in the con dition of affairs." "The passage of any law that re stricts the number of saloons," says President Maiwurm. "results in the Mibstiiution of the drug store. In Chi cago, since the passage and strict en forcement of the f o'clock closing or dinance, it is estimated that over MOO drug stores that formerly closed at 11 o'clock now keep open all night, and in our prohibition districts the terri tory is simply flooded with drug stores and at the junction of cross town lines there is located a drug store on each corner." '! nihf I'oltrr. Secretary M. .1. McCarthy's report was largely statistical, but not alto-; get her so. He made a plea for the re spectable liquor dealers on the ground that their business is strictly legiti mate and creditable. In Bishop Henry C. Potter, of New York, he recognizes a broad-minded person who should be a power for good. But he does not concede that the subway tavern is unique. "In no way," he says, "does this so called 'model saloon' differ from that conducted by a large majority of our members. et its opening was graced by no less a person than Bishop Pot ter, who has been in the past so out spoken in favor of the legitimate liquor dealer and the absolute necessity of a projH rly conducted saloon, and in the nurse of his remarks so aptly declar ed 'that to shut tip the saloon is the most tragic and at the same time the most comic feature of modern history." "It is hardly necessary to say that the good bishop has been most cruelly criticised by the fanatical element whose theories he has so openly de nounced: but he has earned for himself the hearty approval of all the leading journals and the greatest minds in this and other countries." Ilrnuuirra III I)hr. "It has been the policy of the Anti Saloon league ;nd other temperance fanatics." Mr. McCarthy says, "to in discriminately abuse and villify all en gaged in this business, irrespective of the business qualifications of the deal er. We claim, and justly so. that those who are members of this organization should, and do. keep respectable places, and it is unfair to class them with the dives, which we all detest and despise, conducted as they generally are by ir responsible persons who have been started in business by some brewery. because of their suppsed ability to seii !eer. ami witnout any regard to their knowlodge of the business, their moral character, and their regard lor their fellowman. It is such men that Ibring upon the trade the odium which ""justly rpaots on all. Belleville, being only an hour's ride from the Pike over St. Louis way, across the big bridge, practically all the delegates will take in the fair be fore they return to their several homes Meantime Tne local committee is giving them the time of their lives, the onl3 drawback being that there are so many total abstainers present that re freshments are a drug in the market COURT HOUSE RECORD.

Football authorities have not been planning for many changes in the style of play this fall as a result of the new rules adopted by the general com mittee early this spring and just pub lished in full. A prominent Y'ale alumnus, who has coached many teams and who has been a close student of football rules, said: "The changes are simple enough and will not cause any extensive alter ation in the game in general. The most radical is that which allows onlv four points from a field kick", insteal of five heretofore given. "Next to this is the clause which in sists that there must be six men on the scrimmage line. This expressly stipulates that, if there are not more than six men on the scrimmage line, one of those not in the line must be outside the position occupied by the end rush. "As to the penalties, they are not to be grouped this year under five and fifteen yard classes, but this change is one of clearness rather than anything else. ' "The rule which clearly defines the duties of the linesmen and the umpire is important. I.ast year the two wait ed for each other at times and there was a general misunderstanding about minor points. No benefit could be se cured during the season through a di vided responsibility. "Under the new rules the linesman is asked to watch the ends on their offside play and on kicks, to note the tripping of ends when they are going down the field on kicks, and to detect the ends in the roughing of fullbacks. The umpire is left with practically the same duties as before, with the above exceptions." ANNUAL MEETING OF THE TRI-CITY PRESS CLUB Members Enjoy Ride on New Daven port & Suburban and Banquet at Grand Isle. A ride on a special car over the new- Davenport & Suburban street railway line to Grand Isle and a banquet at that place where leading features of the annual meeting of the Tri-City Press club held last evening. The members met at the St. James hotel, Davenport, at 6 o'clock and were whisked to the island resort in short order on one of the new cars of the tri-city's latest acquisition in the shape of a traction line. The ride was ended within less than a block of the pavilion that was opened on the island at the beginning of the present season. At the pavilion the club members iouna .Manager uiaus ivuehl had pre pared for their coming. A private dining room was tastily decorated and in it one of the finest spreads ever enjoyed by the scribes was partaken of. At the business session following the banquet the reports of the retiring officers were read and various matters pertaining to the welfare of the organ ization discussed. The meeting ended with the election of the following offi cers: President Robert Rexdale, Rock Island. ice presidents I. B. Haviland, Davenport; John Sundine, Moline. Secretary E. E. Buffuni, Rock Isl and. Directors F. V. Rinck, Rock Isl and; L. R. Blaekman, Moline; R. W. Cram, Davenport. DID NO PERCEPTIBLE HARM State Crop Bulletin Reports Part of Corn Crop Safe From Frost. A cool wave passed over the state the night of the 14th and light frost formed in all sections on the morning of the 15ih. The frost was very light in character, and no preceptible dam age ensued, except slight injury to ten der plants in isolated low places. The mean temperature was deficient, rang ing 4 or 5 degrees below the season able average. Well distributed show ers occurred, putting the soil in fine condition for plowing and seeding. Farming operations, except where tem porarily interrupted by rain, were prosecuted under favorable conditions. Plowing is well under way in most sections and completed in some. A considerable area has been sown to wheat, rye. and timothy, but much seeding of wheat remains to be done. Some early sown wheat and rye fields are showing green. Corn was practically unscathed by frost, and the reports of injury in low places is inconsiderable. A portion of the crop is now safe from injury by frost .and the remainder is slowly ad vancing toward maturity. The dates fixed when the later corn will bo ripe range from Oct. 1st to Oct. 10th, and but little immature after the latter date, have been cut for corn will remain Some early fields fodder. Grasses have been revived by recent rains and ample fall feed is indicated. Clover is proceeding with satisfactory results. Broomcorn is being harvested. An average yield of good quality is indi cated. Grapes of fine quality are yield ing bountifully. Pears and plums are promising. Apples will give a fair yield in the northern section, but in the central and southern districts tho crop is very unpromising, being a fail ure in many localities. JULEP BOWS TO RYE. Tli- siimmcr birds have flown aw; The harvest fields are dry. The corn grows riper every day. The wild geese southward flv". Ami the dead leaves kiss the clay: Tile julep hows to rye. The forest wavs are growing The prairie flowers die. Bay, The thistle top is turning gray. The autumn breezes sigh. And as the soothing zephyrs play Tile julep hows t rye. The thrush lias hushed his merry lay. A haze enshrouds the sky. The sun sends down an ardent ray As swift the days pi by. And while the fairest blooms decay The julep hows to rye. The summer time in brave array Is now no longer night. The robin and the noisy jay No more we may espy. Tin- winter lime is on his way. The julep l.ws to rye. Ah. gentle mint, thy soothing sway Is (font' and none deny: No more thy soft, green, pungent spray The glass will glorify. Farewell the straws, the iced display. Tile julep hows to rye. Chicago Chronic.-. Bowling Season Opens at the Club. The bowling season at the Rock Isl and Club started off last night with a match between teams picked from the veteran followers of the sport among the members. President Charles Mc Hugh was the instigator of the match, and his team, consisting of himself. F. W. Bahnsen. Dr. L. G. Eyster, J. W. Welch and Col. C. W. Durham, de feated one composed of F. A. Head. T. J. Medill. M. S. Heagy. H. E. Curtis and C. J. Nourse. by a score of 2.039 to 2.tO. The losers paid for a supper for the party partaken of before the contest was played. Sour Stomach. When the quantity of food taken is too large or the quality too rich, sour stomach is likely to fellow, and cially so if the digestion has weakened by constipation. Eat espe been slow ly and not too freely of easily digested food. Masticate the food thoroughly. Let five hours elapse between meals, and when you feel a fullness and weight in the region of the stomach after eating, take Chamberlain's Stom ach and Liver Tablets, and the sour stomach may be avoided.
