The Holy Land The " Panorama of the Holy Land" was thrown open to the public Saturday night, and was viewed by a large assem-. Mage of ladies mid i;entleiiien. Il is an exhibition in a building built and adopt -ed especially fur the purpose, at the cor-, tier of Sixteenth street and Second aven ue. The panorama is a bird's eye view of Jerusalem anil the holy land, the work of Prof. Eiseii, of Chicago, one of the artists who sketched the "siege of Vicksburg" and other noted productions. It is a mas ler piece of art, which H a rare pleas ure to look upon. Prof. Maiks explains the uileresting points of the panorama in a conversational lecture. It is an attrac tion w hich will prove both interesting and in-lniclive to all seeing it. Distinguished De egalion. There was a distinguished oartv in Roc and over Sunday. Il consisted of a delegation from the U. S. arniy Oeu. Franklin, Col. Brown, Col. Mc Mahon, Mrs. Gen. Ncdy and other olli- cialswith their wives and other ladies They came in fioin Leavenworth in an elegant pullman coach, the "Kearsargc,"' Salurday night and left last night for Milwaukee. They attended Trinity church iu the morning, and visited Col. I. W. Flagler on the government island in the afternoon. They were very tuict in their move nieiits, and seemed to avoid publicity above all things. They would not regis ter at the Harper house for fear their mum s would get into the papers. They are inspecting the various military posts and soldier home locations throughout the country, and of their wish to con ceal their presence at a stopping place is because they desire to go upon a point of inspection unexpected to the commander of such a place. Faihion and Women Fashion is the bane of a woman's life If her bonnet is not of the latest pattern she feles fidgety in church, and envies some more fortunate sister. '"After all, is life worth the living?-', the sweet tiirl graduate asks in a bouffant frock and a falsetto voice to a delighted crowd of boiupict ladened mothers anil lit tie broth ers, w hen school is split into kindling wood, and herbanpie, as the class poem est says in long metre, ''is launched on the great wide ocean of the new strange life," which means that the sweet girl graduate is relieved from the task of helping a tall young sophmore to carry her Latin grammar and her book on syn onyiuns home, and is about to begin learns iiig how to tend the door Thursdays, let down her old frocks and slap the younger members of her ma's family.

A Branch of the National League In gtullted in Rock IslandThe Officer and Order or Busi- -ness. Consequent to the recommendation of Hon. Charles Stewart Parnell, a move ment has been on foot in Rock Island for the formation of a local branch of the Irish National League of America in Rock Island. The matter has been urgently pushed and an active canvas of the pub lic opinion was made, culminating in the organization of such a branch at Norris' hall yesterday afternoon. Thomas F. Cary, president of the Land League, oc cupied the chair. Hon. P. O'Mara. after stating the object of the meeting, made some stirring remarks on the importance of organization, and requested the co operation of till Irishmen to assist Mr. Parnell in his present struggle for free dom. The following are the officers whose nominations were made unani mous: President Thomas F. Cary. Vice President Thomas Thornton. Recording Secretary John Miiloueen. Financial Secretary .las. V. Cava- nau-'li. Treasurer - Daniel Daly. Several new members were added to the rolls and lilieral contributions made. Hie object of the organization is to as sist in collet-ting a fund to aid in the elec tion of representiilivesof the Irish people to lite firilish parliament. Mr. Parnell, the Irish patriot, desires home rule in Ire land, and to be represented iu parliament in the meantime by patriots, whose sym palhies are with the cause of Ireland and liberty. To make il possible for a poor man to accept a nomination, Mr. Parnell wishes to instigate a fund, from which a guarantee of JL'UH year may tie made for the expenses of these Irish representatives whilo living in London during a session of parlia ment. The present condition of affairs is such that the land and money interest have the controlling power in the liritish parlia incut, and members beiiifr allowed no compensation for their lime and services, onlv those w ho are rich enouirh to board themselves and work for nothing besides, can hold a seat. Hence Mr. Parnell s idea, and a worthy one it is, and his friends and sympathizers in America will not be slow iu lending a helping hand to their mother land in the hour of her need and disticus. England's tyranical rule over the oppressed has hail its day; the Irish people have been serfs long enough and the day is not far distant when the Irish nation will be enjoying the blcsitig Dial arc in this land of liberty. The local organization is a noble one, and deserving of the support of every body who believes in the self government of civilize, 1 nations, the tonality of all men. .TIIES.1MTARV SITI'ATIOM. Commissioner Craig's Statement of the Healthy Condition of the Locality to the Home Commission. Health Commissioner Craig has pre pared the appended statement of the sail itary condition of the locality at the sue gestion of Ihe Soldier's home commitsion, and furnishes a flattering showing of the health of the vicinity. ( itt or Km r 1slkii i (IPFICK UK Til ClIMIIIsHIONItB OP HEALTH, V 1CIH K IhLANIJ. Act. 14, ltili. S To the members of the commission for the location of the soldiers' and sailors' home of Illinois: Genti.EMKN: I have the honor to sub mil for your consideration a brief report upon the sanitary history of the city of Rock Islam). Our locality has always been noted for its heallhf illness and the longevity of its iK'ople. 1 his mailer was fully inveslis gated by the United States government at the time the national arsenal was lo cated here, and decided a strong point in our favor. So secure however did our ieop1e live in the enjoyment of good health that all sanitary precautions against disease were utterly neglected. As a consequence, a few years ago, we had, for us, an unusual amount of sick ness. A health organization was then established and the city placed in good sanitary condition. Through the liber ality of oue of our distinguished citizens, Hon. P. L. Cable, our water supply was changed fiom near the shore at the lower part of thecitv. to the channel of the Mississippi river at a point above all pos sible danger of contamination by sewerage, and we uow have, we think, as tine and permanent a water supply as any city in the country. A large sewer has been built through the entire low and umjrained part of the city, alleys and- yards have been kept clean, anil garbage removed, vaults and cesspools have been drained out, and contents removed from the city, a thing I hat, was scarcely thought of previous to Htfl, and we have been almost entirely relieved of malarial and other diseases, as the following death rate will show: Population 11,Til.

The above rale is based upon the offi cial census of 1880, and not upon au un official enumeration the present year, which gives us a population of 13,655, aud which of course would reduce the rate. Notwithstanding the excessive heat of this season we have had but twenty three deaths from the 1st day of July to this date. Iu addition to our present sanitary ar rangements, the city is now erecting a public abattoir, so that after this year not a pound of fresh meat will be sold wilhiu our limits that has not been prepared un -der official supervision and inspection. No other city in the state can offer such assurance as to the good meat supply. We, therefore, wilh a feeling of thank fulness believe that we can offer you san itary inducements iu the way of pure water, pure air and pure food, such as can be equalled by but few places in the stale, and surpassed by none. Very re spectfully, your obedient servant, Q. U. CiiAio, M. D., Commissioner of Health. POLITICAL ISSUES OF IOWA. Scott Conntj Democratic Convention The Nominees Speech by Iowa's Next Governor. The democrats of Scott county assents bled in delegate convention at the Ger man theatre in Davenport Saturday. It being the day also for an address from State Senator C. E. Whiting, the demo cratic candidate for governor, the theatre was elegantly decorated. After the re port of the committee on credentials had been accepted, the following nominations were placed in the field: For State Senator W. O. Schmidt, of Davenport. Representatives George II. Clark, Hickory Grove; Phillip Dielz, Waleott. County Superintendent C. lv liirch- ard. County Auditor C. C. Campbell. County Treasurer R. Piicsicr. Sheriff Nat Leonard. Surveyor Thomas Murray. Coroner lr. James McCourtney. Hon C. E. Whiting. the next governor of Iowa, then delivered an address, lie said: This was a new departure in Iowa poli tics and the question might well lie asked who he was and where he came from. Thirty years ago be came to Davenport to haul loads of lumlier to his home at Marengo. That was the time before there were railroads iu Iowa. He then moved to the Missouri river, then a wilderness and for tweniy-six years continuously had been employed upon his farm. Plat form speaking was not his forte A new idea had coir.e to the men of Iowa, that the labor of this) great producing state should be represented in the highest of fice in the stale. He referred to the won derful growth of Ihe slate and the devel- opement of its natural resources. l!y labor and with the aid of east ern capital all of this had been doue. Today Iowa has a ready access to all the markets of the world. Why should not the brain power that had done all this be enabled to control and administer the affairs of the slate. He would ask the agriculturalists to what extent their taxes supported public institutions and the public schools iu the districts. You cer tainly sustain a large proportion and we want an equal share in state manage ment. Referring to the state platform of the two political parties he said he had stood on the democratic platform all the years of his manhood life. The republi can platform was one continuous array of glittering generalities and had no more power to carry out the promises they have made than two trains can pass on the same track. They say they are in favor of regulating railroad rales and transpor talioii. The distinguished gentlemau from Marshall offered an amendment to the railroad bill that completely kilied it and the railroad attorneys came to us and said we have so amended your bill as to le galize unjust discriminations, now pass il if you want to. The party that tells you they are in favor of controlling the rail roads voted down and killed the bill . The incorporators were aliens id our midst and a bill to make them citizens slumbered iu the committee room. In that platform we are told by the other parly that they propose protecting public lands. He told of the aequi sition of territory to the United States until il reached its present proportions. He claimed that during I lie first 74 years of democratic rule only a little over iil,0lH),(l00 acres were given away and a large 'portion of that was granted to the stales and for school pur poses. Iowa received more lhan Illinois did and a republican hgislalure gave it away to the railroads and never has a cent of revenue been derived from il . Gen. Gai field made the remarkable state ment that 2:0.000,HIO acres of land had been given away and l!2.tKK,(HH of that amount to corporations. Another mailer that will enter into this political cam paign was the prohibitory law. There was eeneral opposition to it anil il was a dead letter on the statue books. Whisky was free in all parts of the stale and un taxed. Dos Moines formerly received $;0,thK in revenue annually, and now there arc 155 permits there and not a cent of revenue has been received. The pro hibitory law fails in counties that were supposed to contain a strong prohibition sentiment. There was a question arising as to the honesty of the men who passed that law. The big distillery turns out 17,- 000 gallons of whisky per day, and the legislature refuse to suppress it, but passed a prohibitory law. Today the law was a dishonored aud mangled thing at the feet of its friends. The position of the democratic party' is that it be torn from the statue books and be buried for ever. There was more intoxication along the Missouri river lhan at any lime for thirty years. Why is Iowa wiser than her sister state, Illinois, where there is a li cense law. Tlje collector of internal rev enue told me that it lessened the saloons in Chicago to the number of 1,5(10 and $2,000,000 of revenue was annually de rived. If he should lie called up n to stand as the chief executive of the people at Des Moines that would his position AngustWaaUier Heview The Illiuois department of agriculture has furnished the following interesting information concerning the weather dur ing the past month: Rock Island county, D.

The Chicago Herald, one of the bright est lights in metropolitan newspaper jour nalism, issued a supplemental sheet Sat urday, which fully attested the enterprise which has marked the progress of that sheet in its rapid stride to the foremost rank among the journals (of today. The extra sheet is au ideal representation of what will be the appearance of the paper one hundred years hence. For in stance there is an imagiaary editorial on the history of the country for a ceutury back, from which the fallowing is an ex -tract: Before Cleveland became president the public offices were parcelled out among party workers. A change of party in power meant a clean sweep of the pub lic officials fruji- place. This piratical system of capture aud reward naturally developed a craze for politics, it called into life a race of politicians. Elections were fiercely contested, and the people were made to believe that the triumph of this or thai party meant the ruin of the country. At the same time nothing was at stake but the possession of the offices. G rover Cleveland did not put a st op to this. No one president could lie ex pccteil to put sudden end to the growth of generations. Isnt he began the movement which. a few years later, compassed the downfall of the old political system. He refused to make a c.lvan sweep. He kept many worthy republicans in office uulil their terms expired, lie was wise enough not to attempt I Ik; impossible by declaring that partyism or reward should end. but he sowed the good seed which grew and juicklv bore glorious fruit. As the etui ol I levclaml s lerju ap proached ihe republicans nominated for president one Logan, ami the leinccrat ic. ililicians. iltssalislieit Willi Cleveland because of his refusal to give them all the places, nominated McDonald, of Indiana. Both Logan and McDonald were spoils men, lull as many democrats were dissat isfied because Cleveland had not been nominated, and Ihe politicians had suc ceeded in m iking a nomination which meant repudiation of Cleveland's work. Logan was elected. The independents of both parties, calling themselves the mug wumps, nominated a candidate of their own and polled an enormous vole. When Logan became president he re turned to ihe, old spoils system, tint was met with such a storm of indignation from the people that he sought to retrace his steps and follow the example of Cleveland. During bis campaign, how ever, he had made hundreds ol thousands if promises, and in fulfilling these he had to make such a clean sweep that ins ail ministration became odious. At the end of Logan's term the independents of both parlies made a grand rally and Grover Cleveland became the mugwump candi date for president. Cleveland was tri umphanlly elected, and the spoils system in America came to its end. Then began the era of real reform. Office gelling was made impossible except through compel itive examination, and thus the race of politicians, having nothing to labor for, abandoned their vocation. Subsequent elections were less bitterly contested, ami parlies were continually shilling and forming about issues rather than about organized and inherited appetites for place. Presidential terms were length ened to six years, and reelection made impossible. Senators werocleeled by vole ot the iieople, and woman sutlrage was ingrafted upon the constitution. Con gressmen were elected in the autumn of the year their service was to begin, and the people of every district were given authority to instruct their delegates how to vote upon all imMrtanl matters by mailing to the bureau of public desire postal cards expressing their wish. Un delegate to vote in accordance therewith or resign. Elections were nil held liy mail, and the act i asscd, taking effect teu years later, requiring as a condition to suffrage the ability to read and write. It was during the second term of Grov er Cleveland that litest; and many other reforms were brought about, and, though Ihe titles mugwump, prohibition, demo crat and republican were preserved, they did not represent continuous organiza tions, but were some limes Used to denote parties, or remnants of parties, when Ihe issues of the il iy did not happen to In sufficiently ittiiirialit l i afford more dis tinctive lilies. Among the ideal disp.i'ches from different parts of the country, are these: Washington, Sept. 25. The new postage si-imps are nearly ready for de livery. Tin; design is very pretty, il being a picture of a man iu search of an office. The expression on the man's face is one of pain, as if he eiecled to be licked. The shading of Ihe stamp is what may properly be termed changeable. In the night the stamps glow like phos phorus. There is a barometer attached to the stamp, which will prevent the con tents of the envelope from becoming wet during a slorin. These modern hummel ers are quiet an improvement. Some of them have rubber overcoats, while others have umbrellas. The ones with overcoats have been selected by the government for the stamps. The si.e of the stamp is about that of a three quarter sheet poster and il. is put on a letter by means ot an ordinary white wash brush, tine of them, under the new regulations, will carry a box of jmerehnndise. not exceeding ,'i.VI pounds, as well as a letter.
