Note from Mr. "WilliamJKerns.
Mount, Ills , March 19th 1877.
To the Editors of the Rock Island Argus.
In your Saturday eyening paper, refer
ring to the question of postmaster here,
you say the postmaster&nip has narrow
ed down to two men each representing
opposite factions, L. E. Hemenway and
Win. Kerne, Aa the case now stands,
the tatter has the inside track having the
support of the '"ins," the anti Hawley
men." Iu this you are not correctly in
formed, so far as it relates to me. I am
ut now uor have 1 been for nearly eight
years an applicant for the office in ques
tion, ror all of this time I have support
ed the present postmaster, and uow when
Mr. Weils proposes to retire 1 favor the
appointment ot Mr. Hemenway to fill the
place, and 1 believe, Mr. Editor, that you
will say my choice is a wise one. As to
the anii-liawley parly, there is no such
thing here. Mr. Hawley has permanently
retired from the business of making and
unmaking postmasters, aud if his political
epitaph shall ever be written I suggest
that it may be said that here lieth a man
who broke down from the efforts of an
over-load of official patronage."
lruly yours,
Wm. Kerns.
The Abbott Concert.
Oneof the best social organizations in this
vicinity, in fact in the state, is the Sylvan
lioat Club, ot Moline. 1 his club is com
posed of the best young men in the citv
and has done much to merit the gratitude
ot our citizens tor the excellent enter
tainment given under its auspices. The
Barnabee Concert Company, was a card
tor Moline, and when the club announced
it on the bills it was liberallv praised for
the enterprise shown. Then we have had
among the lecturers some of the most tal
ented ot America s orators It was the
Sylvan Cmb, that gave us Swing. Parsons.
and others, and the public displayed their
appreciation by liberal patronage. En
couraged by the manner in which their
efforts have been reciprocated, the mem-'
bers of the club conceived the idea of giv
ing to Moline an entertainment which is
seldom witnessed outside of Chicago, or
the Eastern cities, and accordingly through
the indefatigable persistency ot Messrs.
Tillioghast, Koator and Moore, and in ad
vance of all others, the club announces a
concert by Miss Emma Abbott, America's
favorite Prima Donna, to be given on ed
nesday evening, of this week, at the Con
gregational church. Miss Abbott will be
supported by Signor Brignoli, the world-
renowned tenor, bignor rerranto. basso
buffo; Mr. W. R. Case, the eminent
