Aa Overflew Heettac. ; ;
At tbe first appearance of Mv E. W. "
Bliss before a Rock Inland audience
yesterday afternoon, there wati such an
andience to welcome him as wn well cel.
culated to encourage his hear; and give
promise of successful meeUnja in the
future. The meeting began at 8 p. m,
in tbe Central Presbyterian church. A
half hour before tba time a large choir
had collected and was practk log under
the leadership of Mr. P. H. Cli rk of Bos
son who accompanies Mr. Bliss. Mr.
Clark Is a fine singer and tbe music bids
fair to be one of the prominent features
of the meetings hereafter. When the time
came for Mr. Bliss to beg n i.ia address
almost every available seat in the large
auditorium was taken. Mr. Bliss is a
large robust, healthy looking business
man. He is not a minister, but a man
who has given up his business and devot
ed his life to the work of salvation.
His talks are a plain, simple, direct, pre
sentation of the gospel with little or no
attempt at oratory. His first address was
to christian people, pointing ut to them
their duty in respect , to these meetings
and to the unsaved. Sinners are waiting
to be spoken to, he said, and if they are
saved, Ged's people must go to them tell
them of the Saviour and invite them to
MR BLISS' ETENINS MI ETINO.
An immense revival meeting was held
at the Central Presbytarian church last
evening. It was conducted by Envange
list E. W. Bliss of Chicago, assisted by
Revs. Jno. H. Kerr. W. S. Marquis and
H.C.Marshall, all of tin protestant
churches with tbe exception of the Chris
tisn, uniting. P. H.Clark, the famousBos
ton singer took charge of the consolidated
chorua ot fifty voices. The church was
crowded before the time ci me for the
opening of the services, and it was ne
cessary to hold an overflow meeting at
the First Baptist church, where it was
taken in charge by Revs. Taylor and Que.
Evangelist Bliss who conducted the
meeting at tbe Central church, and who
will continue to hold two maetings dally,
the afternoon at the Broadvey and evet
ning at the Central for ten days, is a
forcible and logical speaker itnd throws an
earnestness and zeal into I is work that
holds bis bearers and wimi their confi
dence from the first. His discourse last
evening was based oa St Paul's epistle
to the Romans, 1:1017:
For I am not ashamed of the Inapel of Chri.t
for It 1. tbe DOWer Of God nnto lilntlnn tn ...r.
one that beherelh.
For thereto I. th righteougneeii of Ood revealed
from faith to faith.
Mr. Bliss stated that hi never knew
anyone who confessed ihe gospel of
Christ to be ashamed of it. He had known
people who proressei to be christians to
be ashamed of it when pat in a corner.
The religion that is bued on tbe gospel
gives courage, joy and pet.ee. Tbe gos
pel curies lire, liberty and blessing to all
who believe in it. Ehanu. is always as
sociated with sin. There is no sin con
nected with the gospel. There is error
and deception in the chris' lanlty of those
not led by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
They lack the very essence of salvation.
Jesus Christ must havti access to the
hearts of all true believe ts, through the
goepel. Because people may be reading the
bible and giving to the church is no as
surance that they will be saved. Pray
ers, right living, and goocl works wUl not
save. Salvation must co;neonlv throueh
the blood of Jesus Chrisu Be not de
ceived as Saul was, who had to be strick
en down before he found that he was in
error and was deceive!. Saul found
though be labored for vet rs in what he
thought tbe right way, that righteousness
was the gift of Ood through Christ; that
to be saved one must repent of his sins
and believe in Jesus Chri.t. It was an
easy thing to turn from tin, the evange
list held, f"r Ood meets the turning sin
ner with open arms and he is made right
in an instant if he but bslievea in Christ.
The gospel brings hope iind joy to all. no
matter how oppressed or sorrowful their
At the close of bis sermon Mr, Bliss
gave an opportunity to tall who desired
to profess Christianity tc rise, and a num

The republicans held a convention at
the court house this morning. Tbe ob
ject thereof was not explained, 'or some
reason, but it was understood to be for
tbe purpose of selecting delegates to
represent Rock Island county in a con
vention to be held at Cambridge tomor
row, presumably for the purpose of nomi
nating a candidate for tbe legislature on
account of tbe fact that W. C. Collins
who ran for the office last t ummer sent
his resignation 4o tbe governor of the of
fice he was candidate for before he knew
whether he was elected or not All the
shining lights of the party were present.
Boss Wells called the meeting to order
He said tbe chairman of the county com
mittee was absent and he had been dele
gated to perform this duty, and to nomi
nate Hon. H. A. Aiosworth of Molioefor
chairman. Mr. Aiosworth was elected
and returned thanks for the honor. M.
E. Sweeney was elected secretary . The
chair named as a committee on credentials.
Howard Wtlls of Rock Island, Dr. James
Cozad of Edgington and W. T. Ball of
Moline. Boss Wells went up and put his
arms around the chairman and whispered
something very confidentially in his ear.
The chair then announced that Mr. Wells
had declined to act as chairman of the
committee on credentials and that Spen
cer Mattibon had been appokted in bia
place. The convention made no objec
tion and the committee got to work.
The committee in due time reported the
list of delegates entitled to seats in tbe
convention as agreed upon at Saturday
night's primaries, Howard Wells having
been chosen delegate at large in Rock
Island and H. Eobler in Moline, Port
Byron, Drury and 8outh Moline being
without delegates present. Tbe conven
tion then got down to business after all
delegations bad been inttructed to fill
vacancies in tbeir numbers.
A motion prevailed that tbe conven
tion proceed to take an informal ballot
expressive of its choice of a candidate
before tomorrow's convention.
A motion was carried that a committee
of three be appointed to choose the dele
gates, and the chair named Messrs Wells
of Rock Island, Deere of Moline and
Nicholson of Coe.
The chair appointed as tellers tbe ori
ginal committee on credentials.
Wm. Payne, of Zuma, S. W. Heath, of
Bowling.J. C Adams and W. A. Schmitt,
of Rock Island, and J. O. Osborne, of
Zuma, were put before tbe convention as
candidates. Tbe ballot was taken with
tbe following result: Heath 18, Payne
48, Oeborne 18, Adams 13. Schmitt 8,
Bowgbton 2. Carae 2.
Mr. J. C. Adams withdrew and Mr.
Haaa stated that he had txea authorized
to withdraw the name of Henry Carae.
Tbe formal ballot was taken and resulted:
Heath IS, Payne 71, Osborne 19. Mr.
Payne was therefore declared tbe pre
ference of the convention, and the dele.
gates io be chosen were instructed to cast
their votes for Mr. Payne.
The committee to select delegates re
ported the following which were approved
by the convention: C- H. Deere, C. L.
