THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY i OCTOBER 15, 1886.
FRANKLIN T. OLDT. The Democratic Candidate tor state Superintendent of Public In struction in the City. Prof. Franklin T. OMt. of Lanark, Carroll county, democratic candidate for state superintendent of public instruction, is in tbe city, and will remain here a few days, tbe guest of bia many friends. Prof. Oldt is a man of bright intel lect, thorough educational advantages and of strong executive ability. He has held numerous positions of prominence in the educational institutions of Carroll county, and is eminently qualified to make a worthy successor to Superintend ent Raab. Prof. Oldt is virtually a local candidate for Ibis important state office as coming from the northern part of the state, which includes Ibis section, be sbould and will receive a cordial and hearty support from Rock Island and adjoining coun ties. Tt is an opportunity rarely offered in .stale politics to vote for a man who comes from our own immediate neighbor hood, and in Ibis case the interest of the community should be considered in ad vauoe of party bias. Old man Edwards, who is Prof. Oldt's opponent, might bave been a proper per son for tbe place in his earlier years, but that day has long passed by. All his fac ulties have been steadily fitiling for a long lime past, so much that he retired from the profession of teaching several years ago. His memory and bis eyesight are said to be especially weak. Indeed, it is positively asserted that he is unable to recognize old friends upon the street, owing to his failing faculties. It would be the height of folly in the people to i let t a ni'in to so important a position as school superintendent who is so infirm that be was compelled to retire from the state normal school on account of his disabilities. It would be particularly foolish when a man like Prof. Oldt, who is in the full possession of his mental and physical powers, is in the field. Medical Hen in Meeting-. The regular quarterly meeting of the Iowa and Illinois Central District Med ical association convened in the board of education rooms in this city at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Pr. 3. AV. Baker of Daveuport, presidcut of the associa tion and Dr. i. L. Eystcr of Rock Islaud. secretary, were in their places. There were present Drs. Baker, Cantwell, Grant, Nichols and Hazen of Davenport, Mor giu of Pitrt Byron. Dunn of Moline, Cowden. Plumrner, Truesdale and Eys ter of this city. The minutes of previous meeting were read and approved. Bill of the secretary for $1.50 for printing and postage was allowed aud ordered paid. Dr. Stella B. iiefcolls then read an in teresting papqr ou "Ex-Optiolmic Goi tre." On motion the paper was received, and a general discussion of the subject ensued. Dr. Cowden then read a care fully prepared paper on "Typhoid Fev er," which on motion was received, and produced an interesting discussion on the subject. At tbe next meeting papers will be read on "Extra Uterine Fa'ta tion," by Dr. Morgan, of Port Byron. Jfr. orthnp i-'oneral. The funeral services of the late Mrs. J. H. Nortbrup were held at the M. E. church at Hampton at 9 o'clock this morning, the services being conducted by Presiding Elder P. A. Cool, who deliv ered a beautiful and impressive discourse, an appropriate tribute to the useful christian life which had ended. Kev. Miller also took part in the services. The remains were brought to this city in a special car on the C, M. & St. P road. A large number of Hampton and Carbon Cliff people came down with the relatives aud friends. The pall bearers, Messrs. .1. T. NoRsker, E. H. Buck, J. L Free man, J. F. Robinson, S. S. Remble and Dr. W. T. MagHI, conveyed the casket to the hearse, and the procession formed ' tnd proceeded to C'bippiannock, where the interment took place The services at the grave were conducted by Presid ing Elder Cool and Kev. It. G. Pearce There were many handsome floral tokens. t'oni:reMnian Seeee. Congre-sman W. H. Neece will arrive from thj lterend of the district tomor row morning, and tomorrow night he will addn ss a mass meeting at Hampton. The following week Mr. Neece will spf ak every night in different parts of the county, and before be gets through he will completely take the wind out of (Jest's sails. Mr. Neece is a forcible and logical speaker, and he makes a much bct'.er impression upon the stump than does bis opponent. He is right on all public questions and discusses them in telligently. While Gest makes promises to the laboring classes, Mr. Neece proves himself to be the friend of labor by his acts in congress. It remains with tbe democracy of Rock Island county in a great measure to decide whether Mr. Neece shall continue to represent the dis trict in congress or not. If they do their duty hi reelection is assured - The Wrong Idea. The Sid. C. France company paraded the streets this afternoon on horse bi-k. attired in cow-boy attire, advertising the performance of Jesse James at the Olympic theatre at Davenport tonight. "Looks like a democratic procesiion" a lid one of a crowd in front of the Rock Island bouse. "Not at all", responded another, ' it is republican for all the world; can't you sec that fellow in the lead with the bloody shirt." And no more remarks were made until the procession bad gone by. Knight for ccce. The Chicago Daily A'eaj has tbe follow ing, which will remove any doubt as to where tbe Knights of Labor stand on Congressman Neece's reelection: The republicans of the Rock Island congressional dfstrict claim that the Knights of Labor at Moline and Rock Island do not support the labor-union convention's induruemcnt of Neece, but will vote for Gest. The state lecturer of thu Knights of Labor who has been through that district, says the knights have indorsed Neece in all their assem blies, and will give him their ainmat aol ld vote It fa upon this bt 5ec9 paf8tlsUi. . A FOE TO FREEMEN. Kev. A. R. M oraran at the Oranare Pic nic at Preemption in Jalv. Oa July 13 last, the annual Orange picnic was held at Preemption. Tbe Orange flag was displayed, English airs were discoursed and a great time had. Rev. A. R. Morgan was there, of course. He bad not turned his back upon the pulpit then, but he was laying his lines for the' shrievalty nomination, bis inten tion being to abandon preaching and de vote his energies to polities, should be be successful in securing such nomination. Morgan thought it would be a great po litical hit to go out there and talk against Catholicism and he went and made a speech, which tbe Union, in com menting on at tbe time, said by way of attempting to excuse tbe indiscretion of a probable republican nominee, "The speech of Mr. Morgan needs but few comments. We expected something good and was not disappointed." The principal speech, which was en dorsed by all present, including Morgan, was made by Rev. Henry Brink. Tbe Union's report of it says: "The wit of the Rev. Henry Brink, the last speaker, was enjoyed by all. He bandied Cutholicism with ungloved hands. He thought that although it might comb its hair and black its boots, it was the same old Cath olicism still. And if it was standing back and gritting its teeth, it was only because it knew that it was subject to the powers that be." Morgan pronounced it the greatest success in tbe picnic line he had ever attended. He estimated the at tendance to 4,000 to 5,000, and came borne, thinking in his egotistical way, that every one of those five thousand would vote for him because he had sueered at a christian lakh because it differed from his own, and gloated'ever tbe oppressions which have beset the Irish people under the doctrines in Eng, land which he at this meeting applauded. The A Kin s would not make this cam paign a fight on religious sects or creeds far from that it would honor and re spect all christian denominations and faiths, but where a minister of the gospel enters the political field and seeks to make votes for himself by drawing the sectarian line and condemning those who differ in creed from the church he repre. sents, it is the duty of the press in defer ence of other religious beliefs, to speak. The attention of the Argus has just been called to Morgan's speech at that time. We did not consider the meeting of sufficient general importance to have a representative present, and as the only mention was made in the obscure morn ing paper published in this city, there are doubtless others who were not aware that these speeches had been made. Theatrical. JohuC'hysler was in tbe city yesterday arranging for the appearance of the Fielding comedy ideals at Harper's thea tre next week, commencing Tuesday evening. Tbe Dubuque Herald says: A crowded house greeted the renowned Fieldings last evening at the Standard. The night was one of humor and laugh ter. The entire company is a superb one, and the stars, Mr. Fielding and Miss Maggie Fielding, are supported by a powerful company. Tbe singing of Miss Fielding was artistically rendered. Mr. John Fielding as "K. G. Hopper." the lightning agent, was very happy, and Miss Maggie Fielding as "Janet Vau ghan" was exceedingly clever. At Harper's theatre Monday evening will appear the Dora Wiley comic opera company. "The funniest show in the world," says the St. Louis Pott Diipatch. Polk's "Mixed - Pickles," the ludicrous comedy that has made many a side split and caused many a theatre owner to nail the shingles on his roof down tighter and which Manager Knell will be obliged to do next Sunday morning, appears at Harper's theatre Saturday evening. Siys the New York Dramatic JVcwa: "Mixed Pickles," a three act farce from the pen of Dr. T. H. Sayre, was produced at the Fourteenth Street theatre last night for tbe first time in New York. Its in terest depends npon cleverlv arranged in cidents rather than upon any well-defined plot. But these incidents are in them selves funny, and they follow each other so quickly and atford such brisk action that tbe fun doesn't bave a chance to lag. The lines are bright and the character ization is amusing, although it tends to burlesque. Last night the play was un usually well acted throughout. Mr. J. B. Polk, as a mischievous practical joker, who impersonates his clergyman brother and thereby sets many worthy people at sixes and sevens, was very happy and did not lose a point. Mr. Alexander Vincent, the honored head of a family but inclined to be fast, made a distinct hit and shared the honors with Mr. Polk Mrs. Geo. Devere, Miss Julia Polk, Miss Jennie Christie. Miss Nellie Sheldon, and Messrs. Rainford and Cooke acquitted themselves most creditably. I he aud ience was large and laughed incessantly througout the performance. Seduced Bates on ton C-, B ft Q- The dedication of the Illinois Soldiers ami Sailois' Home, and the Veterans' Re- Union is to lake place at Qniucv, 111., on October 19th 20th and 21st, 1836. Tbe universal interest in the home, and the great number of attractions provided for the entertainment of visitors to the city, among which may be mentioned the camp of the Grand Army I'osts, the Regatta. lbs. parade and review of soldiery, the fireworks, illuminations and evening street parade with flambeaux and floats representing American war scenes, as well as the dedication of the home, at which a long list of distinguished speak era will be present all this, and much more. will, it is expected, attract a great number of people to that citv on the dates mentioned. For this occasion, tbe Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad will sell tickets to Qucncy from all stations on its lines in Illinois at ono fare for tbe round trip. Special rates also made for organized bodies, U. A.- K., Woman s Relief Corps and State Militia Tickets can be obtained at any station in Illinois of the C, B. & Q. R. R. on Oct tober 18th. 19th, and 20tb, good on date of sale only, and limited for return to October 22d inclusive. Hcv. j. J. Lackey. Rev. G. J. Luckey. the newly appoint ed pastor of the M. E. church of this city, comes from Geneseo. The Henry county New says of him : His talents preeminently fit him for a larger field of labor than Geneseo. Per sonally speaking as one outside the pale Of the church, inougn strongly in sym pathy with it, we never saw a Methodist minister leave Geneseo whom we regm taora thus Mr, iiuctf QUITE A CURIOSITY. People In the Lower End of the Coun ty Anxlons to See the Parson, but Are IHnappolnted The Re publican Sleeting-. Dburt, Oct. 14. It had been re ported for tbe l'ist week or ten days that the Rev. A. R. Morgan would speak in tbe Baptist church and talk to the people on the political outlook of the county. Rather a small crowd gathered at tbe church at about seven o'clock. Tbe arrival of Morgan was patiently awaited, and about 8 o'clock Dr. Bnugbton, of Edgington, and Uncle Billy Bruncr arrived. They brought tbe report that Mr. Morgan could not be present, having an engagement else where, and they came for the purpose of speaking to the people in bis stead. After Mr. Boughton had spent about an hour talking of tbe planetary system, continental money and endeavored to say something about greenbacks, about which h knew little or nothing, we were surprised by the arrival of Mr. Gest and two others Mr. Sturgeon and Mr. Adair Pleasants, of Rock Island. Mr. Gest was introduced, and dis coursed on the tariff question, pension laws and cave his views on the land mo nopoly. He expressed himself to be a high protective tariff man, and was in favor of giving all soldiers a pension, whether disabled or not. Speaking of our public lands, Mr. Gest realized that our public domains were fast slipping away, but seemed to have forgotten that it was his party that allowed foreign cap ilalists and home and foreign corporations to become possessed of so many of our acres. He bandied all those questions like a man who bad been out of politics for the last twenty years. Mr. Sturgeon was then introduced and said he had not come for the purpose of making a speech, that the others had picked him uo on the streets of Ilock Island and that the party had not had anything to eat since morning: that be felt more like eating than talking, and in fact be talked and acted like a very hungry man, and about all he did say was he wanted us all to vote for Gest. Mr. Pleasants was next introduced and made a very flowery ( ?) speech. He said he had been a life long republican and never scratched bis ticket, but be hoped there were democrats and greenbackers in the house (of which there were more than republicans) and his advice to them was to scratch their ticket, and vote for W. II. Gest. One would judge by the speaker's remarks that tbey had at lost sight of the balance of tbe ticket, and tbeir whole aim and object was to secure enough votes to elect W. H . Gest. Uncle Billy Bruncr was called upon and made the most glow ing speech of the evening. He took up the candidateson both the county ticket", saying he was well acquainted with all of them. He spoke in very complimentary terms of each one, w hich pleased the audi ence very mnch, and be wound up by saying he thought the best fellows in the bunch would get the most votes. The meeting closed and it was raining quite hard and tbe last seen of the speakers they were standing in tbe middle of the road in tbe rain wondering where they were going to stay all night. A Few Cold Farts. Moline Chimee. Mm. ink. Oct. 13. In consideration of the deluge of campaign lies burled at one of tbe candidates on the people's ticket, it becomes necessity to reveal to the public the utter falsehoods and contemp tible misrepresentations that have appear ed from time to time in some of the bri lliant republican journals of this city. In the first place I wish to produce the testi many of one of the neighbors of the can didate for sheriff, Mr- Sharp Silvis, a man of eminent respectability and of an old and honored family, who has known Mr. Silvis ever since he was a mere lad. and who watched him grow from youth to manhood without one blot or stain upon h is character, and who has seen htm tbe boy teamster begrimed with coal dint, I he emblem of honest labor Day after day and year after, yearpursuing an honest calling, and reaping the reward of success that is merited only by the honest and industrious. It is a well-known fact that a few years ago one of Mr. Silvis' neigh bors, who was a poor man, was taken sick, and, during the hot months several times Mr. Silvis took a wheelbarrow, and wheeled over to his sick and unfortunate neigobor large pieces of ice. Further more, notwithstanding the garbled state ment to the contrary by one of the old partv organs, there is not a man living who ever worked for Mr. Silvis but who will readily support the above statement respecting Mr. Silvis' generosity and lib erality of spii it, and in answer to tbe statement made by the reverend candi date on the republican ticket some time ago "to look with suspicion on any can didate who spends more than the office is worth to him to get elected." I would say. Suppose Mr. Silvis should spendjraore money than the office is worth, it is His own hard earned cash and not the con tents of a contribution box or the pro ceeds of a donation party, and in spend ing the money he would only be demon strating tbe spirit of his nature, that is, tbe spirit of "give," not "take." and the public would be equally justified in look ing with suspicion on a man who would exchange a seat in a "synagogue" for a hangman's post, and who would get up before a crowd three or four nights in a week to ask for tbe oost. Geo. Rii.et. A Watch Xovelty. Miss C. L. Patterson, the popular jews eler, has just received the latest novelty in watches, which is called the automatic time keeper. The method of indicating tbe time is operated automatically. In stead of a dial covering the face of the watches, there are three smalll dials, one of which gives the hour of tbe day in figures, the other dial the minutes past the hour, the machinery changing the figures in -each minute and hour. There is also a minute dial giving time in seconds. Tbe new watch is just the thing for railroad and telegraph opera tors, as it is more convenient for denot ing time.

A Good Investment Anyone who has ever dealt in lands. knows that no investment of money will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefully made. To the absolute safety o'. a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of interest which can be obtained on any safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and tbe great tide of immts gration into these states Has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. Tbe climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, free as it is from the long rigourous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development or these states, i o lue lar mer tbey hold out special inducements. Cheap land, easy term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less latwrr than is required to pay rent for the land be occupies here, or the interest on the money be has invested In it. . If you are looking for a safe place to invest money, where it will pay yon I large and sure profit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what I have to offer. I will make the visit profitable to you. Office over American Express office. Rock Is land, 111. Savillk Johnston. At Cordova.
