FOR STATE SENATOR.
The Senatorial Committee Delegates the Authority oft'omplr ting the Ticket to the t'onnty Com mittee. The actios of ihe Henry democratic convention yesterday in placing the names ot Marx D. Hauberg and John T. Piait on the democratic ticket of that county, virtually releases the senatorial committee from any further responsibilities in the matter, acd the two members of this committee in this county sent the follow ing explanatory letter to the Rock Island county committee this morning: Rock Island, October, 19. Ausuet Hnei-tii Esq County Committee. Cbaino&n Democratic Dear Sir: On the 2d day of Sept., 1886 a democratic convention of delegates from Henry and Rock Island counties was held at ('twibridye, III., at which time John T. Kenworthy, Esu., was nomina ted as democratic candidate for repre st nlative from this district to the state legislature. At the same time a senator ial rominiiti e was appointed for this dis trict, consist-in;: of the undersigned of this county and L. C. Dituick, Esq., of Hcn. ry. No nomination of a senatorial can diilate was made at this convention, Placed bv the nonaction of the con veniion in a situation, which, liy reason of events then, and subsequently trans luring, seemed to mjuire more than or dinary care anddiliberation, and, perhaps mure than usual circumspection in con- sii.rin: tb annus elements Iikelv to enter into the senatorial contest in con nuliou with local interests and a general MipMn of the democratic ticket in each rounlv. the senatorial committee recog i ized the iinMiilance of prudence and ni'Mleralion on their part, and the ceces si;v of conservative and watchful inactiv ity until political action in various direc tions tending to effect the democratic 'itlioi: j-hmihl become more distinct and pronounced. The official action of the Henry countv democratic committee on the 18th inst. in endorsing and adopting the candidacy of -Marx D. Hauberj: for senator, has pre cluded, aud entirely superceded the necessity of any action by the senatorial committee so far as relates to a senatorial candidate in Henry county; and haviug to that extent assumed to act of their own uii-tiou and authority, the undersigned as members of the senatorial committee de dine to tike further action in relation to a candidate, aud would respectfully sug gest and recommend to the Rock Island democratic county committee to take of iieia! action thereon and non inate or en dorse such a person for senatorial can didate as in their judgement may seem tit and proper. Respectfully Yours, L. V. lilJlNDI.NIi. Wm. MiExiry. Rock l-.!uml County members of Sen. Com . Alter receiving the above from the senatorial committee, the following call "Was issued by the chairman of thecouuty committee: To the Members of the llt-mocnitic County tom nmtee: Rock Island, Oct. 19. On account of the action of the Rock Island county members of the senatorial committee of Ibis district, we think it heal that the county committee meet Friday, the 22d day of Oct., at 2 p. m., at the Jefferson club rooms in this city. August HrEsnsr.. Ch'n. Wm. McExiky. Sec'y. Mhonld Howl. The Union should howl and cons demn the Dora Wiley opera company and Sharp Silvia and his friends, because in the performance of the opera "La Ma3 cotte" at Harper's theatre last evening, the great curiosity, Parson Morgan, was made the subject of a stage joke. A pro duction was spoken of as "a treatise on the Miwotto by A. R. Morgon." It was asked who Morgan was, and the reply was that he. was a candidate for sheriff tmt would never get there. The repub lican organs, all of which will swear to a lie if one will start it, have not gotten through yelping yet for an injury (?) done Morgan by Luke Schoolcraft at the minstrels a week ago, aud all of the fneuds of the demo cratic candidate are charged as having instigated the joke. By the time a few more Irrupts enme to Rock Island ami make the parson the subject of their wit and sarcasm, tbe republican sheets will make up tlieir minds that the republican shrievalty nominee is something of curiosity, and that a strauger is not in t!ie citv very long without hearing of him.

Hall, Lorimer, Douglass, Pang born, while the women were Hattie Connen, Ella Coon, Laura Coon and Minnie Welch. There were altogether thirteen men indicted, all of whom are representative business men and manufacturers of Monmouth: and more prominent names are yet to be divulged it is said, by the evidence before the court. The Monmouth Gazette speaks of some of the evidence submitted yester day, bringing out language used at the ' picnic" as vulgar and profane; "lan guage that would not be proper to pub lish."

Locomotive 252 was pulling it, and Engineer Jesse Parker, of the Savan na and Milwaukee day run, was at the throttle. The magnificent coaches four in number, being a diner, sleeper and two observation cars were lettered Pencsj-lvania Central Railway." They were all private coa?hes, and the occu pants were the chief officials and direct' ors of the great system of roads imlica ted. The train left St. Paul, where the party sojourned Sunday, early yes terday morning. Arriving in the city. the distinguished visitors were driv to the Harper house, where, by previous arrangement, as heretofore stated in the A nr. us, rooms had been pre pared for their reception. Manager Lowry bad directed bis steward, Mr. Price, to exert his best efforts in prepar iog the supper, and the result was a mos elaborate spread. The visitors expressed it the best -meal they had partaken of since leaving Chicago, and they had been at St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, St Paul and Minneapolis. During the evening President W. B Ferguson, of the Business Men's associa tion, Dr. J. YV . Stewart, Messrs. A. C. Dart, C. J. Dart, J. S. Gilmore. Capt. T. Robinson. II. D. Mack, S. J. Keator, and other representative citizens of Rock Island, Messrs. Geo. H. French and James T. Lane, of Davenport, called, and were presented to the distinguished visitors by sir. jjowry. Ihe evening was spent chatting pleasantly, the gentlemen ex pressing themselves as much pleased with what they were able to see of Rock Isl ana, and their regrets at being compelled by future engagements to limit their stay here to so short a time. They coinpli mented the seenerv on the C, M. A: St. P. and the C , 15. A N. on the west aDd cast shores of the Mississippi from Savan na and Sabula north, as tbe finest they had ever seen. THE NAMES ot the gentlemen composing the parly arc appended, and from their official positions an idea of their distinction in the railroad and commercial circles of the world, may be obtained- G. B. Rob erts, president, Pennsylvania Central, N P. Shorlridge, D. B. Cummins, U. D. Welsh. J. P. Wetheril!, directors; J N.McCullougu, first vice president, William Thaw, Thomas D. Messier, vice presidents Pan Handle railway; S. B. Liggett, secretary and D. S. Xewhall. assistant secretary. Hon. John Scott, solicitor, of the Pennsylvania Central railway. The gentlemen with private secretaries aud baggagemen numbered in all sixteen persons. One would naturally suppose that in tbe visit of so prominent a party, tbere would be something of LOCAL SIGNIFICANCE attached. Sucb an impression however, the gentlemen apparently wish to avoid. n response to the queries of an Aroub reporter Preisdent Roberu said last even tig'. "The reason of our visit west is purely for pleasure to ourselves. We make this trip annually, but as a usual thing extend it no farther west than Chicago. This vear we were in duced to come out over the other roads with a view to seeing how they are operated. The object of our trip is not for extending or purchas ing west of our present termini." The same expression was made by Vice President McCuIlough, and Secetary Lig !'ett, both of whom were interviewed. The coming of the magnates to Rock Island started many wild rumors as to the probable outcome thereof, many thinking the purpose was tbe building of an exten siou through here for the west. It has been said that the company has acquired control of the Toledo, Peoria & Western road, one of the lines of the old Wabash system and extending from the state line east, directly west through Peoria to Keokuk and Burlington, Iowa. The old Illinois and Midland or Vandalia line has been for sale for some time, and this, it is also stated, the Pennsylvania Central has been figuring on. Then there is the Chicago, St. Louis & Western road stretching from Chicago to Peoria, it having former ly been the Chicago, Pekin & Western road, and with the purchase or control of these lines the Pennsylvania Central will have a direct line east from Burlington to Toledo through Peoria, and another line from Peoria to Chicago, and under those circumstances it would be reasonable to suppose a connection with Rock Island would be sought, a bridge across the river at this point, and the Pennsylvania would he on the high way to Minneapo lis, aud Omaha, with a line from Burling ton to Kansas City. By such extensions a snoHT crrr would be made to the eastern seaboard via feoria and the necessity or going through Chicago be avoided. The Penn sylvania now has western termini at Chi cago, St. Louis and Indianapolis, and there beiug a constant uneasiness among the eastern trunk lines, it is easy to sur mise that a western outlet would be sought by some of these great roads. The party left for Burlington by spec ial train this morning over the C, B. & Q, Superintendents Besalcr and Brown accompanying. A special engine No 139 was ordered in by Superintendent Brown U take them down in a hurry. The party was met at Burlington by C. . Perkins, president, and T. J. Potter, first vice president of the C, B. & Q , and thence they proceed east through Peoria and over the C, St. L. & W mentioned above, to Chicago, arriving tbere tonight.

There was a great turnout at the dem ocratic and peoples mass meetings at miian last evening, lie meeting was held in the town hall and over five hun dred were present and manifested their sympathy with tbe sentiments urged by enthusiastic applause. II. L. Franing was chairman. E. W. Hurst, Esq., was the first speaker. lie appealed to those present to cast aside parry passion and prejudice and dispassionately consider the question at issue in this campaign. He made a comparison between the record of the present democratic administration and the tepublican administration that preceded. He showed that under the it publican administration over 300,000,000 acres of land had been given to corpora tions and although these corporations had forfeited a large portion of this land through their failure to carry out their contract with the government, that none of it was reclaimed and restored to the people until the democratic party was re stored to power. He showed that tbe tariff was increased by the republican party fromjan average of twenty and one fourth per cent to over forty per cent through which over $623,000,000 of ex cessive taxes was collected from the pos pie during the last six years of republi can administration. Mr. Hursi showed that in the first year of Cleveland's ad ministration the public debt had been de creased 8S,O00,00O whiie in the last year of Arthur's administration it had b?en increased $33,000. lie considered it of tlie highest importance that the Juruocratic party should be successful in this campaign, that the president might be strengthened in his efforts to bring about needed reforms. No democrat should be swerved from his dutv to his party in this election . Congressman W. H. Neece was then introduced, and was warmlv received. He dwelt at length on the land question. showing that the democratic house of representatives had passed bills restoring about 100.01X1,000 acres of land to the people, and that in these bills it was pro vided that these lands should be kept fur free homes for actual settlers. Speaking of the public debt, he said it was being rapidly liquidated by the present demo cratic administration; that $40,000,000 bonds had been called since the adjourn ment of congress. He declared himself in favor of liberal pensions for soldiers, and Imped the time would come when every soldier would re ceive a just pension from the govern ment. He was in favor of the Hennepin canal as a measure of actual necessity to the commercial interests of the north west and the whole country. Mr. Neece said that he bad been re quested to answer a charge made through the medium of a communication appear iug in tbe columns of the Union, of this city, charging that he had been associat ed wttn Hon. Wm. Springer in canvass ing the state in organizing lodges of the Knights of tbe Golden Circle in 1864. He desired to stamp the charge as abso-! lutely false, and without any foundation, iu fact. Mr. Neece simply submitted his record in congress to the voters of this district, and if he had not conducted him self just as he had stated he would be fore entering congress, he asked for no support now. He was the friend of hon est iudustrv, in whatever branch it might be, and the rights of the laborer were foremost and uptiermosl with him. It was one of Mr. Neccc's ablest speeches and he held tbe close attention of bis hearers throughout, the only interruption being the outbursts of applause which greeted him during the course of bis re marks. Tonight Congressman Neece and oth ers wili speak at Coal Valley. A Good Investment. Anvone who has ever dealt iu lands. knows that no investment of monev will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefully made. To the absolute Bafety of 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 the great tide of immi 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 of these states. To the f sim mer tbey hold out special inducements. Cheap laud, easy term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable bim to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay rent for the land be occupies here, or the interest on the money he has invested in it. If you are looking for a safe place to uvest money, where it will pnv you a large and sure profit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to oiler.

The Rodman Rifles Should Enter the ttrand Military Drill at Wash Ington. The following information pertaining to the national drill and encampment for infantry, cavalry artillery, zouaves and cadet corps to be held at Washington from May 23 to 30 next inclusive, will interest our military boys the Rodman Rifles who may take part and come home "covered with glory" as it were. There is to be 35 ,000 in cash prizes The attendance of companies from every state in tbe union will be large, and in order to limit the attendance to such number as can be provided for, only such companies as are known to be first-class in their drill and discipline and earnest in their efforts to prepare themselves for the occasion will be invited. Thus far the national drill committee has 6hown broad liberality, and no doubt this will prove to be one of the finest military en campments ever held in the United Slates, attracting to witness its drilis, representative soldiers from every coun try in the world. On the 30th of May all the troops composing the encampment with tbe President of the United States, and his cabinet, the general commanding the army, his staff, and all the principal officers of the United States army, to getberwith representative citizens from all parts of the country, will join as one in the services of decorating the craves of the soldiers buried in the National cemetery, which will make one of the grandest sights ever witnessed in this country. A time tbere was when Rock Island could boast of as fine and well disci plined a company as wore brass buttons, and with proper practice there is nothing to hinder the Rodman Rifles going down to Washington and winning distinction on this great occasion. The boys have sbonn themselves to be as brave as there are in the state in point of response to duty, and would prove equally as deserv- of praise in a contest for skill and proficiency in drill. Will the boys go? That is the question first to be decided. If they do, it means a prompt decision on their part and a determination to stand up with Ihe best. It means work and hard work, from now on until tbe time comes to start. Dubuque, Davenport, Muscatine and other cities intend sen ilia their companies, and Rock Island should not be behind.
