AVe Laugh, HA, ELA, TJ, For the l-Lone Fisherman" with a Companion got There all the same. The ylorium results attending yester day's contest at the poils in Ilock Island county, and in the Eleventh congressional district, have caused as much, if not greater rejoicing auion democrats than thai which was aroused hy the Sashing of the intelligence across the contineut two years ago, that Grover Cleveland had redeemed the national government for the democracy after a quarter of a century of republican misrule, and cor ruption. For four years the democrats liad been successful in electing a con gressman from this district. Twice iu succession had Mr. AV. II. Neece led the democratic and labor parties in this dis trict to victory and it was the remarka ble strength he Ueve!o)icd as a political worker, his popularity as a man and clean record in congress and exertions in be half of his constituents, that made him the unanimous choice of the parties he hail served so faithfully and so well for a third term. The result of vesterdav's election shows that Mr. Necee has lost none of his past strength, and that he will continue to represent this district i'l the lower house of congress. For years, or at least since the demo crats captured the district, the republican cry has been, "give us a Rock Island eoun ty man." "give us Gest and we will redeem the district." Consequently yreat things were looked for. when Mr. Gestwas made the standard bearer of the . o. p. in ihe contest just closed. Mr. Xeece expected in Rock Island couuty a harder fight than he had had on his two previous canvas es, but he never had an i lea of doing otticrwise than holding his own. and this he has done. Mr. Gest has made a strong fiirlit in Rt.ck Island city, . aiid has run well in the county, but. has been fright- follv butcb(red in Molinc. Returns from other counties in the district, indicate Mr. Neece's reelection, by a safe major ity. SII.VIS IS ELECTED. bllEUIFFHILV'ia. From the accompanying tui!c, wtiich gives returns, ns nearly as they can be oh tained until the otticial couul, it will be seen that Silvis is elected sheriff by an easy majority of forty three overMorgan, and equally as good results are that HCDAKKlt IS SUCCESSFUL too, and is elected treasurer by about 52 over Burgh. The majorities for Adams and Donaldson, candidates for judge and clerk, respectively, the same candidates of four years ago, are reduced from 1 100 to about 300, which reflects the great strength and popularity of the democratic and people's candidates, Messrs. Wilson and Cavanaugb. BENNETT DID IT. Many republicans attribute the slaugh ter ol Gest in Moline to the f .ict of Bob Bennett's flopping at the last minute, and going for Gest instead of Neece, whom he had originally pledged himself to, and whose nomination he urged. The Knights of Labor in Moline were so disgusted with the conduct of the master workman in attempting to make a political machine out ot his office, they Btood shoulder to shoulder in their determination to stamp their disapproval upon bis action.

A most deplorable result of the legisla tive contest is the defeat of J. T. Ken worthy, of this city, who was without question the most competent man in the tield. He was the minority candidate, and under ordinary circumstances would have been elected. But the Henry coun ty democracy, because the nominatioi came to Uock Island this time, bolted and joined with the labor party in the support of Piatt, who was elected and Mr. Kenworthy left at home. In conse quence Rock Island county has only one representative, and Henry county two and also the senator. Mr. Gest has a majority of 635 in the county, and republicans were claiming this afternoon that he and Mr. Xeece would come to this county on an equal footing, which circumstances would give Gest the election. In the second Iowa congressional dis tricts. Judge W. I. Hayes, of Clinton, was elected to congress yesterday by 3, 000 plurality over Kirkwood and OMeara. The bar ticket for district judges, composed of Branncn, Rogers and Leflingwell, was elected over Heinz Wyncoup and Letfingwell, the democrat ic nominees. The bar is non-partisan consisting of two democrats and one republican. The democratic county ticket was elected unanimously. THE COUNTY OFFICERS. The elected county officers are,Coui,ty Judge, Lucian Adams;CountyClerk, Rich ard A. Danaldson, both of whom are at present republican incumbents of the ollices; SherifT. Thomas S. Silvis; Treas urer, John Schafer, Jr., both democrats. The democracy has gained control of a county office, and the republicans lost one. Four years aj;o the democrats cap tured the sheriff's office; now the treasur er's office falls into their hands, aud if the democratic party continues at this rate, it is only a matter of a short time until it controls the county building, in which the "court huse ring" has for years had undisputed sway. Mr. Silvis is anxious to extend to his friends, his gratitude and appreciation of the endorsement he received at their hands at the polls yesterday, and be de sires to state that even had he been de feated in the contest which has just clos ed, he would have been no less thankful to his friends who stood by him so a-mirably.

Anyone who has ever dealt in lands, knows that no investment of money will so surely aud quickly yield a return, as uch a venture if carefully made. To the absolute safety o a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rale of interest which can be obtained on any safe loas. 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. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, free as it is from the long rigoorous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the f ar rner they hoid 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 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 invest money, where it will pay you a large and Bure protit. or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to offer.

As a stump speaker ho bad few equals. TTf has written leading articles for many daih newsjapers, and ho is a tlioi-ouh political economist. Time had evidently treated Imn hm-shly. He looked like an old burdock bun pono to seed. His shabby eo.it was buttoned tijiht to his thmat, but not tiht ennuh tc hide tho dirty flannel undershirt beneath it. for ho wonu neither collar nor muslin i:ar litent. Ilis shoes were cracked, and hishofl felt li:it was much the worse for wear. Tin re was not the slightest trace of dissipation aUmt him. He seemed downcast and lot-t in tliousht. At a loss to account for the chance in his appearance, we invited him to dine. He took a potato salad and some beer, but was moodv and reserved, lie would not talk about him self, and he eared not to talk about anybody 'lso. It was evident that ho was very int-dv. When a $o note Mas prese-d into his hand his eyes filled with tears. "I did not ask you for this," ho sai J, in a voic broken wiih emotion. 'No, indeed, you did not," we n?ned.

' He looked poor and seedy, and I gave him enough to fix hun ftclf up. That was all. He ha guw out to buy a shirt and collar and clean undercloth ing." Tbfe captain had a sarcast ic smile on his face. Come with me," he said, "and see tiow he fixes himself np, H wp.l interest men like you." After paying the reckoning, wo followed tho captain. Ho escorted us around the cor ner. Up a narrow stairway we stumbled into a little entry on ie second floor. There a bell was rung. A small panel in the center of the door was slid, anil a black fatv appear ed at the oening. The captain was recog nized, and we wero admitted without hesita tion. The room was carpeted and furnished with an attractive skloboard. AffcT moisten ing our iips we went into an adjoining apart tnent It contained -a faro bonk. Half e dozen players sat around the table. Tho silence was only broken by tho tnelluw click ing of ivory chips. One glance was enough.

He lost (he last cent of his nofjp "calling the turn." After vainly trying to beg or borrow n fresh chip he drew a long breath rtnd arose from the table. As ho saw us his face colored, and he nervously clutched his coat at the throat. ' It's worse than a taste for limor," lie said, npolop-tically. "I couldn't help it. Hut I was on the verge of good luck. If you'l only loan me $5 more IT: pay you bark in five mimitrft." His countenance fell at the shake of th head, and he went down stairs. The secret of his downfall was out. "Night, noon and morning," olwrrved t!ie captain, "ha;; le been' at the faro table for ten years, and night, noon and morning will be remain there until he dies." Ten days ago he stood before us again iii the editorial rooms of a great morning news paper. He was still Iwating the copses and dingles of life in his efforts to feed bis Mission for gambling.
