A very strong pressure is being
brought to bear up 3n Mr. Fred Hass.snd
a pressure, too. that he it not likely to
disrespect, to bribe a contest as to Wm.
McConocbie's eleciion to the mayoralty
of R "cW Island. Among those urging
Mr. Hass to enter such proceedings are
some of the most representative citizens
of Rock Island, as many of the republi
cans in fact as democrats, and
the movement is therefore non-par
tUan in nature. The ground of
such steps is the alleged illegal
ity of at least tlflrty.flve votes cast
by non resident citizens students of
Augustana Theological Seminary, the
validity of whtse votes has been
a matter of serious question for
many years. The objoct of a contest
would be therefore, not to settle the may
oralty of Rock Island alone, but to finally
and for all time dispose of a much vexed
question. Mr. Hess would, it is safe to
say, be subserving the wishes of nine
tenths of the peorje of Rock Island in
making the contest outlined. The Arous
is prompted by neiiber personal nor politi
cal feeling toward the students n coming
to the decision that a course such as ia
spoken of would ha eminently right. It
would be far from our purpose or
thought to accuse the students
of August an a College of wilfully
and intentionally voting illegally, yet
it is a fact ttiat many republi
cans as well as deriocrats believe there is
a portion of the young men who attend
the college whom the provisions of the
constitution deny the right of suffrage in
On last Tuesday there were at the
nearest calculation flftythree votes
polled in the Seventh ward as coming
fromAugU8iana ollego. A portion of
that number of course included the fac
ulty and some of the students who have
been here long nough to claim resi
dence in the state, but at least tbirtv-five
were transitory citizens students who
are her only as students, and whose
homes are actually elsewhere. It is this
class of voteis whose ballots are in con
troversy such as can be settled by legal
opinion only. No claims are made as to
bow those studerts voted; that is no
body's business, if they had a right to
at all. The questicn simply is, bav3 they
or not a legal right to vote? And if Mr.
Hass makes the contest, the results, no
matter what they may be, will be bene
ficial to the entire community.
It so happens that the constitutionality
of those thirty five votes enters this year
very materially in .o the outcome of the
city election. Taey are sufficient to
swing it either wj and this is what has
aroused such a generally prevailing sen
timent in favor of a contest.
Apropos of this subject the decision of
Judge Breese in ihe case of Dale vs.
Irwin, on the question of students in
Shurtleff College i.t upper Alton voting,
will be of interest. Judge Breese, said:
"As a general f ict, however, under
graduates of colleges are no more identi
fied with residents of tbe town in which
tbey are pursuing their studies, than the
merest strangers, und should ali the seats
of learning in the United States be polled,
not more than one student in twenty
would be found to possess the proper
qualification of a tesident of the town."
A Maaterly Effort.
Bishop John P. Newman, D. D , of
the Methodist church, preached a grand
sermon at tbe First M. . church last
eyening before a very large congregation
composed of memters from the churches
of Davenport and Moline, as well as
Rock Island. Tb) bishop's theme was
"Concentrated Efforts," and the dis
course was an eljquent and masterly
In the afternoon the bishop received
tho official members of tbe church, and
took occasion to encourage the determis
nation to build a new church, and urged
that every effort b put forward to reach
The bishop baa leea a great traveler in
bis labors for tbe Master. He believes
the world can btr saved, not by faith
alone, but by labo- in the upbuilding of
christians upon 4arth. He, therefore,
has great confidence in the outcome of
missionary labor. He says tbe world has
had many surprises, and tbe conquest of
it for Christ will te one of them for tbe
future historian to record. He does not
estimate the triumphs of Christianity by
arithmetical calculations. It has a
broader and deep r foundation and great
er permeating effect than tbe mere state
ment that tbe world has 1,500,000.000
inhabitants and TOO.COO are under chris
tian influences would seem to convey.
The bishop gives many interesting in
cidents of bis obiervations in bis travels
around the world to show why be bad not
merely a faith but a zeal in tbe mission

All of the townships throughout tbe

. How big is Bobby Bennett, pat
I heu o much about.
They called bim little giant once.
Did he torn tbe rascals out?
He mum be great; I hear them say
Be boisee all the state
And lota that people never knew
He carries in nit pate.
The workingmen and K. of L.
He carried right along;
He mart be wise, he mast be great.
He most be wondrous strons.
My simple lad, you merely ace
The surface of the man ;
You do not see the hidden spring,
Or know the cunning pian
By which he weaves hia little web.
And caeta hia magic spell.
But, there are those who under tand
Your father knows him well;
I'll draw hia picture for you.
But remea ber what I say
Don't breathe a word to anyone.
It might give bob away.
He is not great in stature, boy.
He la but a little man.
His face la mild and open.
And his month is but a span.
A modest little whisker runs
Around his mobile face.
And lends in air of dignity
While summing np a case.
In publie estimation
He stands Teryblgbly now ;
His fingers arcasp tbe city's teat.
And he thinks he owns tbe cow.
And wbo. you ask, has placed him .
On a pinnacle so taight
Trie workingmen have put him there.
And I'm going to tell you why.
There wao a time when Bennett strove
To belp bis fellow men ;
He labored hard, with fluent tongue,
And wielded well the pen.
The workingmen are never slow
To recognize a friend.
And should he ask a favor
They a helping band will lend.
And so, they made him alderman.
And In the K. of L.'
The offices they gave to hlra
I have not time to telL,
Tbey sent him, aa their Ablegate,
To represent their will;
They owed him love and loyalty.
And they gladly patd the bill.
They trmde him or, he got there
Master Workman of tbe stata;
And he waa not fairly etttstjed
Till they made bim magistrate.
But Shakespeare says, "There Is a tide
In tbe affairs of men.
Which, tnken at tbe proper time.
Decides the future then."
And men a tide came quickly
In the life of little Bob,
Wbioh "nipped his prospects In the biul,"
And proved a sorry job.
He used the high position
That the Workmen bad bestowed.
To bolster np tbe enemy.
lie traveled, wrote and blowed
Against tbe friends of lnbor.
H is voice was first to shout.
We know not the condition.
But we know he sold as out.
The republicans have got htm.
Since last he turned his coat ;
Now he a-ks the honest workman
To reward him with his vote.
The workman may be timple.
His education scant.
But tbe man who stabs him tn the back
Can never more implant
The seeds of confidence and love.
Of harmony and trust.
Thoueh he be a skillful gardener.
Trie seeds will turn to dust.
to I thin tbe friends of labor
Will prove they are not blind.
And Bobby's strength and greatness, boy.

the Chicago Herald did use the word

ring that was struggling for ascendency
in Chicago. Both Rock Island and Chi

result is, that Chicago, which is a bigger
city, did better than Rock Ishtnd.

That Hary woro false hair, and of many
different colors, there is every ruaaon to be
lieve. Elizabeth is knoTru to have had a col
lection of eighty wigs, and her dear cousin,
with tho unusual ad vantages of so many
seasons in Paris, is not likely to have been far
behind her. Among the statements of the
accounts of her personal expenditure are
numerous items of perruques de choveux. and
Sir Francis Knoll ik, writing to Burleigh of
the ever faithful "Mistress Mary Beton, the
finest bufcker, that is to say tho finest dresser
of a woman's head of bair that is to be seen
In any country," says: "And among the
pretty devices sbo did set such a curled hair
upon tho queen, that was said to be perewyke
taut snewed very delicately. And every
other day she hath a new device of hair
dressing, without any cost, and yet setting
forth a woman gavlie weU." This variety
and eccentricity of coiffure naturally adds
to the confusion, and makes greater the diffi
culty in identifying positively any of the por
traits or descriptions of her. Historians say
that her mother was tall and beautiful, that
car father was dignified, having a fair com
plexion and light hair; and other and con
temporaneous historians say that she in
herited rnmt of the characteristics of her
parents, "being about the ordinary size, with
