A feasible View.
Editor J. C. Coulson, of the La Uarper,
published at the thriving town of La
Barpe, Hancock county, takes a philo
sopical and very sensible view of the con
gressional situation in this district. In a
recent issue of his paper he says:
There seems to be a determined effort
on the part of a large majority of the
democrats of this district to make a strong
effort to recapture the district from Con
greasman Gest. It is a foregone conclu
sion that that gentleman will be renomi
nated and the democrats argue that with
proper organization and a good leader the
district may be rescued from the hands of
the republicans at the coming contest. It
wfll be necessary to use prudential ludg
men I and harmonize every effort, securing
to the candidate the full streneth of the
party in the district, and the selection of
such candidate must be wisely considered;
a man of intelligence; of more than aver
age ability; a leader worthy to be fol
lowed; a fearless advocate of the peo
ple's rights. We would not urge local
itv as a qualification, but all things
equal otherwise, it might be well to con
sider that. All know that Congressman
Gest has held Rock Island county solidly
almost, because of the great interests tbe
government holds in that part of tbe
district, and tbe people gave hearty sup
port to their local candidate, because they
thought their interests would be best sub
served in his hands. Now! The demo
crats have a man in the person of Ben
Cable, who is folly conversant with the
needs of that locality as is Mr. Gest. He
is a man of ability and a very popular
man; one wto holds tbe respect of all
classes, and one who would serve tbe
people, if sent to congress, as well as anv
we hsve yet had. Democracy can make
no mistake in placing Mr. Cable in the
neld. He is tbe peer of any possible can
didate and locality in this instance must
be taken into consideration.

urdayThe Crop Report.
Washington Citt, Jane 80. McComas
opened the debate Saturday in the house
on the national election bill, and for a time
during his peech the house was a regular
menagerie at feeding time, fornoise. Bland
twitted him for Baying nothing when the
power of local government in the District
was taken away, which Bland interpreted
as disfranchising the colored men of the
District. There was a great uproar for a
time, during which McComas could be
heard above the din declaring that when
the gentleman from Missouri stood on this
Door and affected an interest in giving
suffrage to 8,000 or 10,000 black voters of
the District, and when he recalled the faot
that the gentleman during his long serv
ice here had never raised his voice in be
half of the 8,000,000 or 10,000,000 of poor
and oppressed black men in this country,
he felt like saying, In the language of the
Scriptures: "Thou hypocrite, first cast the
beam out of thine own eye."
Bland's Hot Retort.
Bland denounced McComas as unwor
thy of confidence, and vehemently de
clared that it was he and his colleagues
who were the hypocrites in pretending for
party purposes an nnfelt interest in the
negro. At this point the uoroar became
so great that nothing could be heard save
the commingled tlfouts of the debaters
and the rapping of the speaker's gavel.

Republicans Charged with Fraud.
They were guilty of frauds in '7o, in
Montana last year, and in this house in
this session in turning out elected mem
bers. Referring to Reed's speech at Pitts
burg he said that Reed felt that he was
required to rise above principle for the
beuetlt of party. . Hs thinks it proper that
the blacks ought not to control their own
local government, but rssarts the right of
the Republican party to have his vote in
its favor at the national election. He tol
erates negro proscription for state pur
poses and denies it when the domination
of his party is at stake.
Henderson on Hemphill's Speech.
Henderson of Iowa read from the speech
of Hemphill the passage declaring the
whites must either rule or leave tbe
south, and that they would not laave it.
He wanted no further proof than that
declaration that the blacks of South Caro
lina would not be allowed to exercise the
rights guaranteed by the constitution.
This declaration meant defiance of ths
will of the majority, and defiance of the
constitution. He felt warranted in saying
that it was as dangerous as armed re
bellion, and he meant it. The shot-gun.
the dagger, was to protect the south from
constitutionally enacted laws if they in
terfered with Democratic political con
A Hot Blast at the Ilemoeraey.
Under God he declared that Grover
Cleveland had no right to his seat in the
White House, and that the Democratic
party bad not bad an honest majority in
the house in twenty-five years. He
wanted to say that before he should con
sent that a minority should govern a ma
jority he would favor the protection of
every ballot by a killing bullet. Ap
plause. The house had been told that
what was needed was not a new south
but a new north. They would get it. The
north had peacefully and patiently sub
mitted to this injustice. The people of the
north had seen their fellow-countrymen
butchered on the altar of liberty. A new
north was at hand which would enforce
the law and the rights of every citizen.
A Republican In Opposition.
The next speaker was Republican,
Ewart of North Carolina, and like Lehl
bach of New Jersey he was not in har
mony with his fellow partisans. He said
hs was aware of the penalty he would
ha ve to pay for his opposition. Unfortu
netely politics bad come to such a pass
that under the rule of King Caucus men
would vote for measures that deep down
in their hearts they did not believe in.
They knew deep down in their hearts that
this was as damnable and vicious a piece
of legislation as ever was put on the stat
ute books. As to the negroes' political
rights, speaking for his own state, he un
hesitatingly asserted that no Republican
in the state, black or white, was prevented
from casting his vote. The elections there
were absolutely fair.
Very Few Negro Republicans.
He was sick and tired of the sontimental
talk of the negro problem. There was no
uch problem. It was a delusion to sup
pose the negro was voting the Repub
lican ticket solidly. He was doing noth
ing of tbe kind. Many of them were vot
ing the Democratic ticket; and it was get
ting more and more difficult every year
for the Republican party to control the
negro. He had no hesitation in saying
that not three tenths of the negroes of the
south would vote for the Republican party
if an election were held to-morrow. As
to the talk of no Republicans coming up
hare from the south, why, North Carolina
sent as many Republicans here as the
great state of Indiana. Laughter.
Greenhalg-e on Rip Van Winkles.
Greenhalge of Massachusetts said the
objections made to the bill ware worthy of
consideration. They were interesting, if
not original or instructive. Seme of them
resembled Rip Van Winkle. They had
slept twenty years, but had not, like Rip,
awakened: He had yesterday listened to
Vaux, and he dryly added: "I have now
dropped the subject of Rip Van Winkle.
Comparisons are odious."

Cincinnati, .tune 80. Joe Russell, of
Ludlow, Ky., and Jack Tyrrell, of Green
ville, Ky., jumped from the Chesapeake
and Ohio railroad bridge over the Kana
wha at Charleston, W. Va., early Friday
morning. It was a mutch between them
for a purse, the winner to make the bet
ter jump and come out in better shape.
I hey walked out on the pathwav of the
bridge until diiectly above the. middle
of the channel. The water is 185 feet be
low. lyrrell was attired in vellow
and greeu tights, while Russell's colors
were red and white. The latter, in addi
tion, had weights attached to his shoul
ders and feet.
Tyrrell Makes a Bad Jump.
Russell won the toss, and decided to take
second jump. Tyrrell bounded over the
rail, and hung with his hands from the
iion bar. The referee gave the word, and
he dropped, continuing erect until within
a few feet of the water, when he swerved,
and struck with his riKht side. When he
arose to the surface he was evidently in
trouble. He was unable to swim, and
blood was flowing from his mouth. A
boat was near at hand, and he wa quickly
rowed in and restored to his seuses.
Remarkable Performance of Russell.
Tyrrell had hardly struck the water be
fore Russell was standing on the bridge
gnara waiting for the word. At the sig
nal he dived head first, turning a somer
sault in mid-air, and striking the water
squarely with the soles of his feet. He
went down like a flash, but quickly reap
peared, and began to strike out vigorous
ly for the boat. He was taken in and did
not seem to be any the worse for his
plunge. When the shore was reached
Tyrrell was unable to walk without as
sistance. He continued to have internal
hemorrhage and grew worse after being
placed on the train. It is thought that
two or more of his ribs are broken.
NATIONAL GAME MATTERS.
Some Figures on Profit and Loss The
Latest Scores In the Field.
Chicaoo, June 30. The situation In
bate ball mutters brought about by the
rivalry of the two big aggregations has
developed a new mathematical expert; he
is the base ball financurs statistician, and
one of them has been at work figuring
how the profit and loss accounts stand.
He takes the period from April 19 to Juue
10, and calculates that one of the combin
ations has a very pretty deticit on
hand already, the league facing nearly
$30,000 in exenses that the turnstiles show
no receipts against. The Brotherhood, ac
cording to this authority, is about F-,000
ahead. League cluhs which have more
than paid expenses are those of Philadel
phia and Brooklyn only, while Brother
hood clulis in the same happy condition
are New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chi
cago, and Brooklyn. The Chicago League
club is put down for a deficit of f.5,3ii5.
Saturday's attendance was very discourag
ing for the League, the number being

TEN BROECK'S GLORY DEPARTED.
His Time for a Mile No Longer the Best
ltoclne the Monarch.
Chicago, June 80. Twelve thousand ex
cited enthusiasts howled allegiance to the
new monarch of the turf at Washington
park Saturday afternoon, wnen Racine
beat the famous Ten Broeck's time for 1
mile, and made the record 1:M(V la the
race Racine was an overwhelming favor
ite at prohibitive odds. When the flag
fell Churchill Clark was in the lead, but
Racine" flew past him at once, and led by a
length at the quarter, where Almout was
second and Jed third.
The Struggle on the Home Stretch.
There was little change in the order of
running until the home stretch was
turned, whon Racine was two lengths in
iront ana gulloping easy, witu the others,
except Gymnast and Marion C, hopelessly
beaten. When the grand stand was
reached Marion C, by a terrific hurst of
speed, began gaining, but Narvice, the
Mexican riding Racine, had only to
loosen the rein, when tbe great colt
quickly regained his lead . and dashed
under the wire a wiuuer, and untouched
by spur or whip.
Another Triumph for Washington Park.
Another record was broken in the Oak
wood handicap,, in which Teuton ran 0
furlongs in 1:52, making the mile in
1:3. From the start the favorite. Teu

armed herself, but practiced until she be
came an expert with the pistol.

when there were but few trains, the young

stopped to parley, saying, '"You wouldn't
shoot," and just then the brave young
woman took delilierate aim. The burg

from the opening in fhe window, but did
not leave. While the young woman held

London, June 30. The conflict between
Turkish soldiers and Armenians at Erzer
oum is viewed with alarm in diplomatic
circles and on the continent. The danger
is that the Conflict in Erzeroum .may lead
to open rebellion all over Armenia, in
which event Russia would undoubtedly
take sides with the Christians, and seize
Erzeroum, if not the whole of Armenia,
thus bringing on the long dreaded cat as
trophe of a Euroiiean war. Russia at the
present moment has a large f.irce within
easy marching distance of Erzeroum, and
could overrun the whole country before
any of the powers could bring troops into
Insolence of Turkish Soldiers.
Complaints are liecoming very general
In Constantinople of the insolence of tbe
Turkish soldiers towards ladies walking
in the streets. During the last few days
several such caws have occurred in tbe
Grande Rue Pera. and the general arro
gance of the soldiers towards all Christ
ians has become veiy noticeable?- Even
Turkish ladies are not exempt from sim
ilar insults, and the Turks themselves
fear that the excessive militarism which is
now rampant in Constantinople may be
productive of evil consequences to them.

INPIANAIH)LIS, June !!. Representative
Lee Wilson, of Shelby county, who was
convicted of pension frauds and fint-d $.,
appeared before Judge Woods and said
that he was unable to pay the fine. L'nder
the law lie can lie released in thirty days
by applying for release under the "poor

much incensed at the demand of Wilson
to lie jailed for thirty days, aud said to his
attorney: "I have already expressed iny
indignation at the termination of this
case I did not anticipate anything of the
kind when the fine was imposed."

A Voted Month.
From Keokuk, la.. Democrat.
August, 1887. was a noted month. It
gave extreme beat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous to the
public health. Cases of colic, cholera
morbus and diarrhoea were abundant and
there were numerous calls at he drug
stores for Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. Druggists of
this city tell us that this remedy has been
more frequently called for during the
past month than any other preparation,
and that it has proven a panacea for the
very worst cases. Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is a mer
itorious medicinal preparation for all
summer complaints for which it is recom
mended, and grows in popularity in this
city and vicinity. The sales are increas
ing rapidly and wonderful cares are re
ported. Sold by Harts & Bahnsen.

LAKE FRONT PARK AFTER ALL.
Site of the World' Fair aa Good aa
Chosen A Hig rudertakine;.
Chicaoo, June 80. The most important
development Saturday in world's fair
matters waa that Vice President Bryan
waa "too previous" in stating in his
speech at the banquet Thursday night
that the Lake Front park had been def
inately abandoned as a site. A meeting
of the directors was held Saturday night
at which a resolution was adopted by m
vote of 23 to 10 approving the lake front
site and instructing the buildings and
and grounds committee to go ahead with
the necessary preparations, provided the
national commission approves. It was
said by Ferd Peck that it was almost
a foregone conclusion that tbe national
commissioners would approve, although
Mr. Peck voted against the site.

The selection of the site, if the plan is
carried out. means much lor Chicago. It
will leave for this city for all time, a park
of nearly 50.1 acres in the heart of the city,
where there is only a narrow strip of
ground dignified with the name or park
now. It will settle the long standing liti
gation as to ownership of ground in that
part of the city, which has cost thousands
of dollars and would hive cat thousands
more. It will give to the RlinoisCentral
railway a right of way that no one can
dispute and ground to build a fine railway
station upou. And last it will gives

point in the city could large crowds be so

It w ill cost money lots of it to pre

will be required to till up the lake to the
proper level, and the total expense iaesti

and to pay the city U-siiies tlH,(KiO for

that the work can be dune in time, and no
one seems to doubt that the en

The site will contain nearly twice as many
acres as that on which" the Paris exposi
tion of last year was held.
The National Commissioners.
The national commissioners met Satur
