Graves, the ever genial, jolly baggageman at the upper depot, passed the fiftieth milestone in bis journey of life today. From appearances, one would think Mr. Graves had lived but half that number of years; he is hale, stout and hearty and good for another half century if he continues to take as good caie of himself as he has. Last night thero arrived jn the city a nicely dressed and well behaving boy of nix years, named Carl Cramer. He had come down from Dubuque, thinking he was enroute to Seneca, where his uncle resides. Deputy Marshal Hull took him to his home, where he remained over night, and this morning Marshal Eckhart telegraphed to Seneca and found that the boy had missed connections. He was, accordingly, despatched to his original destination. A Few of the Things He Hears Upon the StreetsVarious Opinions on Various Topics. "I tell you," said the pilgrim's military friend, "that if you would just give the people a little waking up on the Rodman Rifle reception, the result would be suc cessful."

The Jefferson Cluh. ' The Jefferson club held an ad journed meeting lust night at their rooms on Sec ond avenue. Several members of the county committee who came in to attend the meeting of that body today were present.

Notwithstanding, tlieinclometicy of till weather on the night previous , and the threatening weather a'l day yesterday, there was a gathering of about five hun dred at Black Hawk's watch tower on the occasion of the regular annual picnic of the old settlers' society of Rock Island county. A sum ptuous dinner was served beneath the trees south of the pavilion on the tower, after which President Lusk. Tice President Il.iblmrd, Hon. W. W. Warner, of Henry county, and P. A. Armstrong, of La Salle county, made ap propriate and pleasing addresses. Re marks were also made by Col. A. W. Perry, William Cook, and others. The old folks exchanged compliments, talked of the days of yore, and after singing "Auld Lang Syne," in a' manner that made the woods fairly ring, adjourned. A Dead Soldier. On the Cannon ball train from Minuet apolis this morning was a delegation from company I, of that city of the Minnesota state militia, composed of Capt. Osgood, Lieut, Heffeflnger, Sergeants Braden aid . Palmer and Privates Moreland and Craig, with the remains of one of their company, Theodore Ford, who died suddenly Thucsday. The delegation will accom pany the body to Chicago, where it will be turned over to brothers of the de ceased and conducted to Kingston, Onta rio, the place of interment. . The cannon ball train from St. Paul this morning brought home from the great waterway convention, W. li. Fer guson, president of the Rock Island Busi ness Men's association; Morris Rosenfield, W. H. Gest, Esq., August Huesing, Maj. M. Beardsley, and Aldermen Sinnet and Larkin. Others of the Rock Isl and delegation remained over to attend the banquet last evening, and will prob ably anive home tonight. From Maj. J. M. Beardsley, who was a member of the committee on resolutions, an Argus reporter was enabled to ascer tain the manner in which the Hennepin clause, as framed by him, was received in the committee meeting previous to its adoption by the convention. When asked concerning it, Maj. Beardsley replied that there was something of a heated discussion in the committee session when his resolution came up, Congressman Hatch, of Missouri, being especially hos tile to it. "But I told him," said the Ma jor, "that we had come with our hatch ets prepared to fight; that the wishes of the people of Iowa and Illinois were not to be ignored in the sentiment of convention for the improvement of the water courses of the country, and if that resolution, or the substance of it was not embodied in the convention's resolutions, the delegations from Iowa and Illinois would pack up and go home right straight. We had come to claim our rights and if necessary to fight for hem." Selected as 1 was, said the major, "as a member of that committee, I knew full well what was expected of me. We were there to fight for the Hennepin, and it now remained with run whether or not our claims were to lie recognized. I was determined therefore having hal the good- fortune to be placed on that committee to express and claim the rights of our delegation." "Did vour threat about the Iowa and Illinois delegations clearing out, have the desired effect?" put in the scribe. "Well, I should say it did. The corns mittee knew full well that we were there for business, and my resolution was em bodied on the general resolutions exact ly as written and introduced by me. And so it passed the convention." The resolution alluded to may be found in a full report of the convention's pro ceedings on another page. The reporter conversed with Presides Ferguson, Alderman Sinnett and others of the delegates, and Maj. Beardsley seemed to voice the sentiment of all when he said "We come home with flying col ors; the canal has been favored by one of the greatest waterway conventions ever held in the west, and the outlook for the Hennepin was never as good as now.

Seymour, Campaign Co., Ill . ) Sept. 1. 1885. Demi Doctok: A little over a year ago I came to you, suffering with dis eased lungs, which troubled me a good deal, and catarrh in the head. My nerves were badly affected and teeble, and my memory very poor. I had terrible sick head aches which put me in bed, and nearly crazy with pain, so 1 could not take care of my baby. I also had a large tumor in my side aud my heart gave me much pain. I doctored at home, also in Campaign and Chicago, but none did me any good ! only for a moment until I came to you. When I had been treating with you about one month I could see and feel a change, and I have been improving ever since. My tumors are all gone, I am not bothered now with my lungs, and I am doing my housework and feel real well, and expect to continue so. Your faithful patient, Mrs. Anna Avis. To Dr. Mrs. Keck. And so the evidences of Doctor Keek's good work continue to pour in. Mrs. Keck is now at her Infirmary, and has numerous appointments with her many patients. THE COUNTY FAIR. Hillsdale, Sept. 3. . This morning early, people from all dN rections began pouring in, and by 11 clock tne grounds seemed to contain one mass of people, all enjoying them selves as they only can at this fair. Not lees than two thousand were here. Dur- ng the early part of the day the officers were so busy that they could not fill the programme out in the afternoon. The amusements were not lacking. First came the ladies' riding for which there were five entries: Miss Anna Feaster, MissBeale, Miss Cox, Miss Kil7.cn and Miss Emma Johnson. The premiums were: for the best, a lady's saddle, valued at J 10; Miss Anna Feaster secured it. Second premium, 13, Miss Beale; third. (1, Miss Cox. Next came the boys' riding for all boys under twelve years of age. There were four entries. Frank Payne received first premium, Charlie Blackmail second. The third was considered a tie between Jim- mie Wreath aud Charles Gcnung, and was divided between them. Then came the balloon ascension. which exceeded that of yesterday. It was undoubtedly one of the best ever made on this fair ground. The balloon arose at 3 p. m. amid the greatest enthusiasm, all admitting that Mr. Parker, our farmer balloonist, knows his business. II reached the dizzy height of four thousand feet, floated eastward and landed safe and sound about one mile from here in Mr. Walker's corn field. List, lint not least, was the race among the officers of the fair for two hats, the first out to have first choice, and secoud. second choice. The officers who had sand" enough to run were: D. M. Mar tin, vice president; Jno. Liphardt, mar shal; John Johnson, director; John Hahn, director. If you ever saw Jay-Eye-S(!e or MaudS. trot, you mav have some idea of the sliced maintained by Martin on the home stretch, securing first hat. John Liphardt came in second, puffing and snorting, reminding one of the exhaust pipe of an engine. Henry Opcndike (who did not run) says Liphardt would have gained the race if he would stay at home more closely. John Hahn astonished the natives by coming in fourth; still John can't complain; he received one hat last year, and that w ill last him very likely his lifetime. 1 his race attracted more attention than any other. It is supposed by some that considerable money passed hands, one man having offered to bet all he had, which, being counted, was five cents. He bet, lost, and walked home The showing of DRAFT HOUSES took place in the afternoon and was one of the best displays every made. For best stallious for draft, L. 8. Pearsoll's celebrated stallion DcLessrp took first premium. DcLessep is a French Nor man, imported from France in 1884, bv Virgin and Brown, of Fairbury, III., of whom Mr. Pearsoll purchased him, at Die fat stock show in Chicago, in October last. Mr. Pearsoll also received tint prt miiim on best three year old colt for draft and best suckling colt. Mr. Pear soil is one of the best stock raisers in the county, raising none but full bloods FRIDAY, BEIT. 4. Last night's rain deb ured many from coming, but still all living in the iinmedi ate vicinity were on the grounds enjoying themselves even better than yesterday, the crowd not being so large. The rain has had a detrimental effect upon the financial interests of the fair, but on the whole it has been a success. There has been one of TUE BEST DISPLAYS of agricultural products, faucv work and mechanical arts ever made. The general sentiment is "I never enjoyed myself as well anywhere and am going every day next year. The premiums paid will ag gregate f 800. These will all lie paid by bat-unlay. The amusements this afternoon were the most diverting of the fair. The slow mule race, which was won ly Geo Bryant, was the source of GREAT MHIUUMKNT to all. The conditions of the race were each one ride the other's mule, the last one in to win. The sack race attracted much attention. Jno. Hardy won th (2.51) hat. NOTES.

This afternoon just as the farmer'bal loonist, Parker, had his air ship filled ready to start, it caught fire and before it could be checked had burned a large hole in it allowing the hot air to escape, let ting it fall to the ground a shaiieless mass. This was quite an unfortunate affair, one that will cos'. Mr. 1'urkcr much incou venience. The fair has closed and everything has been removed from the grouuds. TOWN TALK. - A proposition has been made for the settlement of the Coe school matter, but it does not seem to meet the approbation of many who are, or have been in favor of the division us it was made some time ago. Those who registered from Rock Island today are: Sheriff Reticker, Jno.T. Ken worthy, County Superintendent South well and Circuit Clerk Bowman. Representative Paddelford, of Henry county, looked down upon his constitu ents today . Peck & Son have some, fine graded colts on exhibition, two and three years old. Martin and Gherhardt served all with refreshment?. Martin is one of those con vivial spirits who does all in his power to please. Rock Island is quite a political center today, it being the time designated for the meeting of the democratic county central committee, per call of the chairman, Mr. August Huesing. Although the object of the meeting was not stated in the call, it is generally understood that the matter of making recommendations to Congress man Neece for persons to fill the fourth class postofiices in the county would come up for consideration. Besides the members of the committee from the dif ferent towns, several applicants for post offices were on hand with their friends in order to see that their interests might not be jeopardized by their absence. Chairman Huesing called the committee to order at 2 o'clock this afternoon. George W. Henry acted as secretary. The secretary called the roll, and the follows ng members answered to their names: Hampton No. 1, Sain Heagv; No. 2, D. A. Weatherhead; No. 3. R. M. Milch- ell.

Nteee: At a meeting of the Rock Island conn- ty democratic committee held on Sept. 5th, 1885, it was resolved that it is the sense ot this committee that the appointments in this county should be made as speedily as possible and to further the matter of appoint ments, we respectfully beg to suggest that the member or menders of the dem ocratic county committee of the locality where the appointments are to be made recommend the applicants lor your hon orable consideration. A mo ton to adjourn was then carried THE COUNTY COMMITTEE.

W. H. Gest, H. A Ainsworth and J. M. Btytrdslcy. Patricl Grogan and Patrick Gainey were con victed at Rock Island in January, 1880, of the murder of Conrad Whillick. Gro gan was sentenced for life. Gainey was pardoned after serving a short term Grogan will now have about two years and seven months to serve, as he has good time credits amounting to five years aud nine months. No Foatmastar let. Mr. Meigs Wait, of Reynolds, says we were mistaken in saying that James Has- kins had beea appointed postmaster at Reynolds. He was simplyelected as a member of the county committee, and is not a candidate for the post office. We are sorry that our statement was wrong, but hope soon to be able to report a dctn ocralic postmaster from Reynolds.
