Campbell, Secretary of Mu nicipal League of Rock Is land County:) "I want to express my great thank fulness to the voters of the city of Rock Island for their show of apprecia tion of the business-like manner in which the Municipal league had tried to conduct its eamDaian. "S3 I -we have succeeded In keeping this I campaign aosoiuteiy clean as Tar as i we are concerned and have refrained 'from bringing any personalities into this matter. "Although we were often requested to publish the petition that brought about this election, we refrained from so do ing, to conserve the business interests of the city that might have been haz arded otherwise. "This league was formed for the bet terment of the community and business Interests of this city. We have made friends all through the city, and from the size of the vote in favor of Rock Island still having legitimate saloons, we feel that we have fully accomplish ed our purpose.' j TAMOUS PUBLISHER IS DYING IN EGYPT ;:,4 433 593 4S7 471 317 296 291 306 (By J. H. Hauberg, President of the Rock Island Local Option League.) "In view of the results of the election on the local option proposition in Rock Island and Moline today, I feel that the sole solution for us lies in the pas sage of county option laws throughout the state so that we may hit the nai on the head as a unit to gain our point. l think we shall charter a motorboat and come down town hereafter. I feel somewhat pessimistic over the out come right now, but It's a long road that has no turn. The votes show us conclusively that the people of Rock Island are not built our way. They like the hilarity, the bright lights and the lively scenes too well to vote our way. We are not crying about the appar ent discrepancy in the registration as compared with former elections and that of today- However, it is probable that we shall investigate the matter. Whether or not we shall do anything further remaln8 to be seen. "Promise has been made for regula tion of the liquor traffic, but whether there will be strict enforcement of the laws in this regard, I am not sure. Of one thing the people may rest assured: we shall not give up the fight, but shall come back to the fight either within two years, or later, with forces recup erated and better organized than in this campaign. We admit our weak ness in many precincts, but shall con- I centrate our efforts for the next battle. It has been four years since the Law and Order league last fought the li quor dealers. I do not see wherein our side has made any- gain. However, when we have studied results finally, we may be able to see where we have strengthened our proposition." James Gordon Bennett. James Gordon Bennett, owner of the New York Herald, la In Cairo, Egypt, seriously 111, and visitors are forbid den by his physicians. He is very weak, eats nothing and two doctors and nurses are in constant attendance. It is feared that Mr. Bennett's illness will prove fatal. Caught on the Bounce. "When the night wind "whines abont the gunning cabin nestled in the beach hills the hearts within grow reminis cent. "The best canvasback shooting I ever had, was down off the mouth of Crazy Inlet." said the parson. "A ripping northeaster was blowing, and I was out on the end of the point alone. The ducks came down wind along the edge of the shoal, and they were so far away that It was Just impossible to kill them outright I could hare had a hundred shots that day, they came-so thick, but I let a lot of them go by. At dark I had picked up twenty-two birds. Not one of them was dead when I flvopped them as they wneeled by; but, boys, I didn't have to shoot a single cripple In the water." Curley gave the parson a long look, filled and lighted his pipe, then snort ed In disgust, for he was an old hand, and he knew that one needed more than a pinch of salt to capture a wounded canvasback in open water. "Suppose you hypnotized those birds you couldn't kill dead into coming ashore for you to wring their necks?" he grunted. "No," said the parson slowly; "they . were going so fast that when I knocked "em down they'd hit the water and bound up ten or fifteen feet. Then I'd kfll-'em on the fjtst bem nee' with the socond barrel."

Then Law adjusted a harness around her, gave her "bo'sun's chair" (which isn't a chair, but a sliver of wood In a sling) to sit on and up the 18-inch steel pole she went. "Gee. you ought to see the Jays down in the street giving me the once ove:" 6he exclaimed as she got part way aloft and looked down. "Does my hair look alright?" There certainly were enough "jays" looking on. From Wall street itself not much could be seen; but from a few blocks away the spectacle was ap parent in all its danger. All the upper windows In the Singer, Woolworth, Liberty Tower and other big buildings were filled, and it wasn't long before the Equitable Trust com pany roof was crowded with steno graphers and clerks who had heard what wa.3 going on above them. "Lots of ups and downs In this bus iness, Rod!" the girl called to Law as she rested half way up. "But It's darned hard work!" So it was. She had to haul herself mounting it. Tl.en she waved her hand whole weight with each haul. Also there was a good "stiff wind blowing and swinging the slim upper part of the pole. Ent she kept going until she reached very close to the gilt ball sur mounting It. Then she waved her hand cheerfully. Coming down it wasn't so hard, though she got stuck half way and had to wait a few minutes until Law in structed her how to untangle one of the ropes. . It took Ler half an hour to climb the pole and half that time to descend. Just to show what he could do.

No, not particularly dangerous to hear her tell it. Indeed, a "pipe," to use her own phraseology. Her act was merely to climb an 85-foot flagpole surmounting the 310-foot Equitable Trust building at No. 37 Wall street, to show that a woman may be a steeplejack (or Is it Bteeplejlll?) as well as a man.
