Palmer day in Rock Island was ushered in by Cleveland weather, and since it was in thia ideal way that the great statesman who presides over the destinies of the re public contributed his influence to the suc cess of today's celebration, it was but proper that bis name should shire in the glories and honors bestowed. 80 it was, for while this haa been in every sense Gen. Palmer's day, honored as be his been as the city's distinguished guest, the noble, honest, fearless statesman whom A DRIVE ON THE If LAND .

It has been iadeed the demo cratic party's day, and what a glorious, joyous occasion of general and popular rejoicing it has been. THE CITY'S WELCOME . The city has put on holiday attire and has received her visitors as they have been brought in from all directions by special traios and farmers' wagons, with beauti fully decorated streets and buildings and in a spirit of welcome and genuine hospi tality. Never before have the streetB of Rock Island presented a more gorg eous sigbt; never before hus there betn such a prevailing spirit of good reeling; never before has the populace turoed out in such numbers; never before has the city contained so many people; never be fore has Rock Island so honored one of the state and nation's great men as she has Gov. Palmer today. According to the lowest estimate the population of Rock Island was doubled today. People flocked in from points in all directions within a radius of one hun dred miles Not before in the history of Rock Island has there been such an in- pouring from the country. No political demonstration, no tented caravan, no show, not even that of the republican party ten days ago, brought such an immense attendance of the honest titters 1 of the soil. And too, thpre was an en tirely different feeling in the promptings of those who came into Rock Island to day. It has cot been curiosity that has brought so many hither it has been an interest in public affairs and men not be fore experienced or witnessed since the war; it has been enthusiasm and patriot ism. THE GOVERNOR'S ARRIVAL. Short as the notice was, and informal as were the preparations, a great crowd assembled at the R. I. fc P. depot last evening anxious to see and to welcome the past and future governor of Illinois. The train was due at 7:35, and while it was announced that the train was ten minutes late, it wag not more than four minutes over due when it rolled into the depot and a shout went up from the as sembled multitude as Governor Palmer in company with Maj. L. M. Buford, City Attorney McEniry and E. W. Hurst, of this city, C. 8. Darrow, of Chicago, and J. L. Pickering, special representative of the Chicago Herald and St. Louis Repub lie, stepped on the platform. Gov- vernor Palmer and party were met at the depot by Mayor Branding and other members of the reception commit tee and a great mass of citizens, com pletely filling the platform, while drawn up In open file on Twentieth street extending from First to Second avenues. were the Island City club in command of Captain J. E. Reidy and Lieutenant J. E. Swan and Henry Simmons and the Sunnyside club in command of President Henry Ltddera and Lieutenants Exner and Carney. The turn out of both clubs was extremely large, especially when it is considered that no notice was given previous to that appearing in laat even' ing's Argus. The Island Cities had 140 men out and made a very attractive ap pearance in their new dress high hats. The governor and party and reception committee at once took carriages, and headed by Bleuer's band and ti e marching clubs in the rear, proceeded down Second avenue to the Rock Island bouse, which was nicely decorated and illuminated. Landlord Munger had pre pared for Gen. Palmer and party a splen did supper, which was served under the supervision of Chief Clerk Bloom, in the ladies' ordinary, adjoining the dining ball. Those dining, with Gen. Palmer were: 0. S. Darrow and J. L Pickering, of Chicago; Mayor V. M. Blanding, Maj L. M. Buford, E. W. Hurst. Alderman B. Winter. J. R. Johnston, J. H. Kerr, D. G. Pecher City Attorney McEairy and John W. Potter. Afterward Gov. Palmer descended to the rotunda where he held AN INFORMAL RECEPTION, which lasted fully an hour and a half, a constant stream of people passing through all that time, anxious to grasp the hand of the honored statesman.

It took the procession an hour to pass given point, and it was the most at tractive and telling, as well as the most extensive, ever seen in western Illinois. Total Sl.00" POLITICAL POINTERS. Delos P. Phelp8,of Monmouth, mem ber of the democratic slate central com mittee, is among the visitors. Capt- Robinson, president of the Ferry company, has generously given orders to Capt. Cameron of the ferry.that all torch bearers from Daven port be passed free on the ferry this evening. Tonight there will be a Bhort torch light procession in Rock Island prior to going to Moline, where there will be a grand parade, after which Gov. Palmer and Mr. Darrow will speak. Gen. Palmer and party viewed the pro cession from the balcony of the Rock Isl and house and was loudly cheered by the various detachments as they passed. Conductor Coons, of the C, B. A Q., who brought up the Prentiss glee club this morning and who is a great admirer of the club's namesake, gave the singers all the privileges of the train and they in turn rendered Beveral choice selections. Gov. Palmer was not received and banqueted by the aristocracy. He was received by the sturdy, rough fisted la boring man, the mechanic, railroad man and the farmer. It does not follow from this, however, that Palmer was not wel comed, not as Fifer was, by his best friends. The Prentiss Glee club of Scioto, Mc- Donough county, arrived this morning. It is composed of E. D. McHenry, C. N. Wilson, E D. McMann and H. H. Chars ter, and the music is all original, the c lub being one of the finest campaign organi zations in the state. Hon. Wm. Prentiss reached this city this morning from Preemption where he spoke to a tremendous audience last night. The house was crowded and peo ple nearly hung onto the windows, while the entrance was completely jammed The greatest of enthusiasm prevailed. Hon. Andrew Welch, democratic can didate for Btate auditor, arrived from Chicago this morning. Mr. Welch says he came out of bis unpleasant experience at Gnlesburg last Saturday night all right und that the fellows who attacked him were simp'y drunken hoodlums. Land lord Munger, of the Rock Island bouse, gave Welch the firBt meal he ever ate in Illinois. It was just about the close cf the war and Welch was a poor boy with no home and without friends. MALE M0RM0XISM. A Woman Living WHs Two Mmbad J not Ovrr the House Border. There is or has been for some time considerable indignation raging just over the Moline line, the residents claiming that a woman in that vicinity is living with two husbands. The womm against whom the alleged charges are made has been divorced from one husband and is married again, and her former liege lord and with whom the matrimonial bans have been severed is a boarder in the household of herself and husband No. 2. While the people in the neighborhood do not raise objection to this part of the performance, they look upon it as a trifle peculiar. The seosa- tional part of the business, however, is that the woman of the household seems to be importunate" in be stowing her affectiens upon both male members of the household. She accompanies both at different times in buggy riding and pleasant walks and seems in the absence of one, it matters not which, to entertain the other with all the grace and charm of a loving and de voted spouse. The neighbors have become accustomed to term the case one of "Male Mormon ism" and say many have become indig nant and promise to bring about an in vestigation if things continue as they are reported to be.

The banners and transparencies, such a great number and variety of which has not before been seen in a political demon stration, were neatly gotten up and while the mottoes were pointed and striking there was nothing either offensive or in sulting in the language used, nor any des parture from truth in composition.

The Davenport Time of list evening contains tbe following particulars of a peculiar and some w bat exciting accident on the electric road at Davenport yester day morning: This morning about 7 o'clock a thoughtless panic seized the occupants of two cars on the electric road, which was brought about in ibis manner: A car was com in? down Brady street be tween Seventh and Eighth and en deavored to stop on the switch till the up-bound car should pass it. But all efforts to brine it to a bait were fruitless. It aeems that the track in front of Dr. Peck's residence was cov ered with fallen leaves, rendering it so extremely Sivpery as to place the car be vond the control of the driver. Down it rushed with a John Gilpin speed, when the up -town car noticing the trouble and fearing a collision, reversed its course and slid downward with all due h&ete to es cape. Both cars, however, were stopped before reaching r itth street. Both cars contained a number of pas' seneers, most of whom became nervous at this Jack and Gill performance, and in their baste to ewape jumped white the enrs were going down the incline. Among them was Miss fcmma slater, who was supposed to be seriously hurt. She was taken into tbe residence ot Kev. Dr. Gum eit, and after resting a short time was driven home in a carriage. Beyond a sprained ankle there was no injury done this lady. M. A. L. Mossman came off with only a few bruiseB. The company can readily euard against any recurrence of this kind of accident by placing sand boxes on the cars. These they have already prepared and will be put in position today. Bad Rvnawayii. One of those vicious brutes owned by the City Paint works got on its high horse this morning and kicked up the dust at a lively rate on Seventeenth street near Third avenue. Little Willie Druck millerwas in the wagon at the time, and was thrown out of ths wagon and terri bly cut and bruised. He was carried to his borne, 1405 F.fth avenue, where Dr Dr. S. C. Plummer made an examination and found the scalp to have received one deep cut two inches long, a contusion on the side of the head where the scalp was torn loose and the head otherwise cut and bruised. There was also a cut five iuches long on the front of the right leg below the knee exposing tbe bone. The fingers were also bruised . The unfortunate little fellow bore his pains with patience and heroism. Tbe injuries are, however, not of a necessarily serious nature. A few months agu the boy's father, Fred Drue k mi Her, had a leg broken while driv ing: one of the firm's horses, and it was only one of a good many runaways the same horse indulged in about that time A frightful runaway occurred down on West Third street in Davenport yes terday. Henry and James Grenwald were driving the delivery rig of Mengel Bros., the butchers. When they reached the point where the Southwestern road crosses Third street, the horses became frightened and dashed westward on Third upBetttng the wagen a few blocks dis tant, breaking the fills and throwing the boys out. The Greenwald boys were picked up in an unconcious condition. The wagon was considerably smashed up. Had the boys been thrown a foot farther than they were, they would have struck their heads on the curbing and probably have been killed. t'oanty BnildlBc TUATTSPBUS. 6 Wm J Campbell to Amanda J Wil son, set nw and sf dw,, 2, 10, 1 $600.

Tomorrow evening the jolly popular comedy, "A Cold Day," is to be present ed at Harper's theatre. Tbe Cincinnati Sun says of the comedy: This cozy family theatre was packed to the doors at both performances yesterday, and judging from the amount of laugh ter, "A Cold Day. or the Laplanders, "has suielv caught on, and will not get left. Fisher and Sampson have secured a eom-jy pany which is far above the average, in tact, every member may be called an ar tist. The play, of course, is light, with only enough plot to make it interesting, but it iB full of fun, replete with catchy and sparkling songs, duets, etc. Tbe sceneries and properties carried by the company are new. In short, it is as com plete a comedy as one wmnes to see, and their business will surely be large. "A Cold Day" wiil be given daily. BR1KFLETS. Wood choppers wanted at Edgewood park Monday.

School Books and all other CHINA'S SEDAN CHAIR. Aa Elegant and Aarebla Thide Work for the Bearra. The etarant and dignified and agreeable- vehicle of China belong peculiarly to tbe oath. It is the sedan chair. The comfort of this conveyance has been brought as nearly to perfection as circumstances will allow. In cities where many wealthy men reside dans are often seen which are real works of art. The eaat is luxuriously cushioned and padded, lined with blue or crimson satin. Comfortable elbow rests, a shelf behind for a large package, and another in front for pipe or book, or small parcel; windowiof alas. with silk blinds, and the exterior of blue cloth, with embroidered ornaments and tas sels hanging from the top all around the four sides, vv hat more elegant and commo dious vehicle can you with for than that! Unfortunately these an not for public hire. The best chairs for hire are fairly comfort able, but tt is well to carry a cushion for toe eat and back.
