Some time ago a dancing club was organized, with Fred Woltmann president and PreW tin'enawalt as secretary and treasurer, and at the time of it organization there were S3 member. Hence the club was giv en the novel name i f the "Thirtv Dancing club. Noon, however, the membership multiplied until the number is now 4 . It was deter mined then to gite a Mries of six dance, and last evening the first was held in the Knights of Pythias hall in the Carse block. It proved great success. No invitation is ex tended to anyone not a member, and consequents A'i ample were present. Schillinger orchestra furnished the music. f The Marrrll ( lah ' The aforrell club gave a dance last evening to its member and friends, and an eveningof pleasure was spent by all. About 25 couple were present, and a neat program was prepared and presented. Afterward the dancer responded to the strains of the Plow Shop band. Taa tlit' PowrrCvaiaaajr.

The directors are: U. H. Ueere, . cue, o. c. Davis, T. B. Davis and C O. Nason. The object of the company is to furnish Dower, beat and light to the inhabitants of Knck Island and Mo- line, in the state of Illinois and vi cinity and others by means of steam. water, air. gas or " otherwise, and for the manufacture and sale of appliance pertaining thereto."

Itaveaa-rt tfra-arrT. and brilliant t-cr Bremen, us course this morn ing in resorting to personal attack on the one hand on t he chief of the fire department for seeking to do his duty, and on the other on the chief of police for the same cause, is indica tive of the fact the soreness with which it became afflicted when the people turned down Bill McConochie is still affecting it. To say political malice i at the root" of the nonsense and stupiditv that have character! r.cil the morning paper's screed is perhaps, too charitable an excuse. Relative totiirhtinir lire In telligently, and the advantage of awaiting the arrival of the chief of a paid depnrtment who makes it a business, ion al' occasions where tires are not lieroud the control of fire men, the Union seems to be totally incompetent to rid itself of the idea of volunteers that when a fire occur there should be a much damage done by water as possible, no matter how great the fire. The Union's way of thinking is that a contest should at once W entered into when a fire occurs to see which should do the most damage, the tire itself, or the firemen with water, and if the latter succeed bravo firemen! Otherwise the department has failed in its duty. Tlw Ol.frl mt the PaM D-partaaMt. The object of a paid department, w hich it seems impossible to hammer into the Union' head, is by prompt reonse to prevent damage to save property. Not to flood and ruin a raau's personal effect while hi house is burning, bat to locate a fire first and then put it ont with a little use of water as pos sible. Very often, indeed in the ma jority of eases, what appear to be a disastrous fire, if first exactly located and attacked may be controlled, if intelligently managed, without dam age to adjoining property. The ob ject of a paid department, always on duty. is to prevent the indiscriminate use of water, and while it is some time .necessary to flood a building. the chances are that if the depart ment gets there in time, this can be saved. As for Chief Brahm, he has made an intelligent and ca pable chief so far. Because he was once a volunteer, it does not stand that be has learned nothing in his two years' experience in a paid department. In fact, had Mr. Brahm not been a member of the paid deartment, he would not have lieen guilty of the comparison the Union makes between volunteers and paid firemen. Because the Union has failed to grasp the enlightened idea is no reason that others should be so lacking in ordinarv human intellect. And the fact that Mr. Brahm is not of the Union's stripe politically, is no more to his discredit than the fact that he does not agree with it on methods of fire fighting. A rorthe loltce Ueaartawat. As for the Union's attack on Chief of Police Sexton for seeking to dis cipline his force, it is only necessary to say that its criticism of the chief on one hand for suspending ' officers tor conduct unbecoming their posi tions, and its assertion in the next breath that the force is honeycomb ed and weakened by jealousies and bickerings of which the Ryan Maucker affair is a sample, and this condition finds its explanation in the fact that The Akgis' Sexton does not possess the capacity and breadth needed in a man placet! in command of other men. is in itself evidence of the morning paper consistency. In the first place the statement as to the condition of the force is false. Rock Island has never bad a better )M1 ice force than that of the present time, and it ha never had a chief the equal of Michael H. Sexton, not even barring the instigator oi the Union's rubbish. There has been one case where action on the part of the chief was necessary to promote discipline. He has taken the matter promptly and properly in hand, and has given the, force to un derstand what to expect for this he is assailed by the Uciou for no other reason than that he succeeded the Union-McConochie chief in office. importance yet to be made, and among them are the collectors of cus toms and internal revenue and the subtreasnrer and the appraiser of Chicago. None of these, it is now said, will be announced until after the election, though the selections may be made earlier. It is learned that the Chicago applications were not in the batch considered at Wood ley last night, but Mr. Cleveland and the secretary expect to to take them up in about 10 days. Ex-Congressman Ben Cable will be here tomorrow to renew his efforts relative to the in ternal revenue collectorship at Chi cago, and it is quite likely the old ngnt between liim and the Chicago delegation will lie reopened.-1 Mr. Durborow .expects to remain some davs and so do the other Chicago members of the delegation who are interested in the collectorship. Mr. Cable Can dirt ale. Spangler and Twohig are both con sidered out of the race, but two new candidates have recently applied. They are Rivers McNeill and John ti. Cushman. . The applications of B. K. Hubbard, S. P. Cady, Max Stern and W. h. Crossette are still on file. The delegation has not yet determined which one of these candidates it will support, or whether it will support a new one not yet presented. Mr. Cable is supposed to have a candidate in concealment, and for a time it was reported that he would present the name oi either Jacob V. Kicbards or John P. Hopkins. Neither of these gentlemen i a candidate, however. so that Mr. Cable, at last accounts. was in considerable doubt as to what he should do for a substitute tor Spangler. His coming tomorrow is awaited with considerable interest bv the members of the Chicago delega tion, who are somewhat solicitous to know what kind of a campaign be is going jo open tnis time.
