The War Eagle went up this moiuiug. The race horse Mary Morton will be down in the morning. The Coo Fair. Tne Coe fair was a success socially and we trust also financially. An Aunts re porter accouiimnied Deputy Slit nll Silvis, Circuit Clerk lowtnau and other digua laries to the fair on Priday. George Ikn uug was smiling at the eu trance, greeting one and all in his pleasant way. We were on Ihe grounds but a short time when We missed Silvis, but finally found him in the judges stand, where he had been call by general request to decide who should be entitled to the blue libbon in the la dies' driving eihibiliou. Meanwhile the reporter took in tuu sights, shook hands with old friends, and listened to the mu sical notes of tht! Port Byrou cornet band, under the able leadership of C. C. Coyne, lie was surprised to see Brothers Schall aud Swisher in friendly intercourse wilh Brothers lVarsoll and Ueiiung, as but a few short weeks before they were at dag gers drawu over the Coe school district tight. But our surprise vanished when we learned that the dillicullies betweeu them had been amicably settled, and that without bloodshed. It was a sort of vic tory for lVarsoll and (iemiug. for the new district will not be iulerlered with, but they did not gain their point w ithout some concessions. Taken all together the brethren did wisely in burying the hatchet when they did. But to the fair. The afternoon found a large crowd on the grounds, aud every body seemed to enjoy themselves either in looking at Ihe exhibits, chatting with friends, watching the races and bull games, or winning cigars by throwing at the rag baby. ExsMayor Molt, Deputy Internal Revenue Collector Henry, and his predecessor. Capt, Beardsley, V'alen-, line Dauber and otliet Hoi k Islanders too numerous to mention, made their ftiienr ance and joined iu the fuu. Silvis slill held the position of judge, and he. with his colleagues gave good satisfaction. Two little fellows entered for the boys'rid iug contest, and the one that did not win the premium a fine banjo was ready to cry, when the deputy sheriff' tossed him a $5 gold piece from his own private purse, aud told the little fellow uot to be discouraged but to endeavor to do better in the future. Either the money or the w ords of wisdom braced the boy up won derfully, and he disappeared from the track in boyish glee. John Slrcckfus, of this ciiy, captured the trotting race, after tive hotly contest . cd heats, with his tine stallion, the two first being taken by Allen's horse, of Port ' Byron. John's friends claimed that he was holding his horse at first, and told him to scud him for all he was worth, as they had their money staked on him. After this lie seemed to trot better, anys way winning the next three heats. Hurrah for ihe Puritan. 8a.kdy Hook, -Sept. 14. .Special. The Puritan is now two miles ahead of the Ueuesta aud going. The weather is . favorable and there is every prospect of her winning the race. At the home of his daughter, in Rey nolds last night, occurred the death of Joseph Seaver, who had been for forty years a resident of the county and was consequently numbered one of its first settlers. Deceased had been for a num ber of years a sufferer from ft kidney af fection, which caused his death. He was in his day an industrious and hard work ing farmer, but was forced by a;e to res tire, and for a number of years has livetl with his daughter. He owued at the lime of Ids death, however, 240 acres of fine land iu Edgington township, his es tate being valued at soim-thins: in the neighborhood of (15,000. Mr. Seavers was born in Scott county . Va , Sept. 22, 1805. but at an early age he removed with his parents to Switzer land county, Indiana, where on August 8, IS:? he was joined iu matri- inonv wilh Miss Sarah Dodge, of liock Island county. Nine children was the fruit of the union four sons. Benjamin P, Joseph H. William II. and Charles T, and five daughters. Hnsha. Esther, K Sarah M. Mary M. and Ida E. Though Mr. Seavers was never before the public in the sense, of an office holder; he was prominently known for his industry aud excellent qualities. He was a strong democrat in politics, and in a pri vate way did much to aitl and promote its principles. He was a Baptist and a ilea con 111 the church at Ueyiiolils. lie came to BiM'k I .l.'iinl county in IStl. and has lived lute constantly since, lie was know n to those intimately acquainted with him as "Uncle Joe." The First Gun ... Ihe political compaign in the eastern part of Iowa was most auspiciously be-. gun in Davenport Sat.utday evening. A large crowd f;iccd a rain storm to bear (Jen. Weaver discuss the issues of the hour. Xo man in the slate commands more resiwct for his ability and sterling fighting qualities than docs Gen. Weaver. In Iowa politics lie is a veteran. As a 1 ampaign speaker he has few equals. He took up the long republican platform and showed it to be a tissue of delusion platitudes, a mockery and a platform . It is demanding just what Ihe republicans of Iowa have had the power to perform for thirty years and utterly failed to do it. In other regards the platform eric lustily for the very enactments which its candidates for governor has opposed re peatedly by his vote and voice (en Weaver correctly st y led it a deception lie cxoost ii Mr. L.arrahees record am showed its weakness, aud monopolistic tendency. He. by way of comparison spoki- eloquently and truly of Senator Whiting's the democratic gubernatorial candidate long life iu Iowa, and his con sistcnt effort to serve the masses of the people. The issues of prohibition h' iliscussetl candidly and fully, pledging Mr. (iillelte, the candidate for lieutenant governor on the demo' ratie ticket to car ry out the will of the people, if elected us expressed in the plat form adopted at Ce dar Ripids in August. Every question of importance was taken up and fa'ulv treated. Mayor Claussen, of Davenport, in fol lowing tieu. Weaver, emphasized all that he had said. He denounced the prohtb ilory law and the republican party for en doming it. In every respect the meetin; was a success and it w ill be followed by splendid results. Hkollar Sept. Term. A, D. 1S85.

Considerable excitement prevailed in the lower end of the city Saturday even ing, over the rumor that J. E. Ilorton, well kuown in that vicinity, had commit ted suicide. The origin of the rumor is attributed to the Bnding of Mr. Horton by his sou in a semi-conscience condition aud an empty bottle labeled 'digitalis poison" by his side, aud the hasty sum moning of a physician. Dr. G. L. Eyss ter arrived in a short time, but found nothing serious the matter, and soon had the patient restiug quietly, although he refused lo submit to medical treatment, In Ihe evening the rumor got out that he had died, but yesterday, however, he sur prised the neighborhood by appearing on the streets in an apparently henllhy condi' tion. An Audita reporter called upon Mr Ilorton, at his home 912 First avenue this morning; and he expressed his indig nation at the stories which had found vent concerning him . He said he was in the habit of drinking occasionally, and on the eveuing of question he had drank considerable gin, which as it was apt to do brought on palpitation of the heart and he took the digitalis to cause relaxation. "I have taken it for similar affections," he said "and know its nature as well as you know the nature of water. The reporter also interviewed August Heimbeck. druggist at the comer of Third avenue and Tenth streel, of whom the digitalis was procured. Mr. Heiin berk said he thought the drug was taken with suicidal intent, that Mr. Hotlou purchased half an ounce, whereas ten or fifteen drops was an ordinary dose. H had no idea that Mr. Horton intended Liking the entire half ounce at once when he sold it to him. Dr. Ejster said when spoken to about it that the dose was not such au unusual I v large one, and he did not believe it was taken with in tent al suicide. At any rate it was a rash act. and it w ill probably never be known to any but Mr. Horton whether he really meant to cud his mortal exis tence or not.
