Mb. asp Mrs. Potter Palmer are

Gcstave Ketzack, of Osbkosh, a
mtn of family, fell and broke one of
bis legs while dancing a quadrille at
St. Louis Repiblic: If the tariff
discussion is revived it will kill th
McKinley boom. If the tariff dis

no McKinlev boom. Now, what is
the use of a McKinley boom?
So far the Union is the only paper
that has the audacity to sustain the
county board of supervisors in its
extreme and defiant partiality to
Chairman S. J. Collins. But in this
it must be said that the Union is
more courageous than any of the
supervisors who voted for Collins.
When the Union gets to the end of
its string it always cries "shame!"
and tries to get everybody else to so
exclaim for it. Just now it is at
tempting to have the whole countv
say "shame!'' because The Argus
and others have freely criticised the
mutual admiration that exists
tween Chairman S. J. Collins and the
Rock Island county board of snpervi
Jacksonville Courier: What's
the matter with Clark E. Carr, the
erstwhile postofBce magnate of Gales-
burg? He talked much about him
self for congress as the successor to
the late Gen. Post, but for some cause
he disappeared about the time the
nominating work was . to begin.
From all indications Clark is no more
in it for the house than he was for
the place Senator Cullom got.
The Union attempts to relieve the
burden of Steve Collins' appointment
as superintendent of the new court
bouse, as tar as the republicans are
concerned, by asserting that demo-1
crats as well as republicans voted for
him. lhe fact that i:n lins annoinl-
ment was no more or no less than a
iKlitical reward for political services.
gives the absolute lie to this asser
tion. And the Union cannot shift
Pope Lo XIII will be 85 years of
age March 22, and all arrangements
have been completed for the celebra
tion of that event as well as the 17th
anniversary of his coronation, which
falls ou the same dav.
i uo pope
naving rcacnea sucn an advanced
age, mncn speculation as to his sue-
cessor is inevitably associated with
the celebration of the dav. From the
inner circles of the college of cardi-
nais it is learned that Cardinal Lntgi
Oalimberti is likely to be next to the
pope in tbe event of the early death
of the present occupant of St. Peter's
chair. He was the founder of the
"Moniteur de Rome," and is tbe most
trusted counselor of the pope.
At their recent state convention
the democrats of Michigan placed
themselves squarely on record on the
silver question. "The democratic
fiarty of Michigan," reads the re so
il tion which was overwhelmingly
adopted, "hails with delight the
rapidly increasing sentiment in favor
of the 'restoration of silver to the
position it so long held in the mone
tary svstem 01 our country, and un
qualifiedly declares in favor of the
free and unlimited coinage of silver
and cold, with full leiral tender now
er and at a ratio of 16 to 1, and in
vites every patriotic citizen, regard
less of previous party affiliations, to
join us in an imperative demand for
immediate legislation to that end.

Attempting to explain and excuse
the appointment of Chairman b. J
Collins as superintendent of the new
court house, the Union says: "It is
all well enongh to pitch into a man
on political grounds, but when he is
followed into his private business
and systematically hounded for
weeks the whole county feels like
crying shame.'" The ArgI'S would
like the Union to explain any part of
Mr. Collins' private business that has
been involved in the court house dis
cussion. No attack has been made
upon him personally, or the lrst
reference made to his personal af
fairs. The Akgcs has condemned
his cheek in Imposing himself on the
conntv. when all that be bad to com
mend him over others was his offi.
cial position as chairman of the re
publican countv committee, and it
has condemned the board for recog-
nizing such qnaiites as possessing
elements of superiority over those
of other candidates for the posi
tion. The Argus has freely ex
pressed its opinion of Mr. Collins1
political tactics, and the peculiar
partiality ol me ooara 10 one against
whom so many of oar tax pavers I
have protested, and it will continue
to do so.

The character of ex-Sneaker Reed
in the session jnst closed has under
gone a cheapening process wnicn
may be the effect of environment.
At the beginning of the session the
Maine man, as leader of the minority
and prospective candidate for the
presidency, left the little sqnabbl-
ings and personalities to bis follow
ers, and generally carried himself
with a large dignity compatible with I
nis position, dui as me uays wore
on. Air. tieea aenectea more ana more
from the upright. He indulged in
cheap scrimmages on the floor with
other members and tbe speaker ana
carried himself nnenvialdy throngh
them. The only proposition of im
portance to which he gave bU name
from one end of the session to the
other was a silly bid for the support
of the silverites, a cheap and flimsy
compromise that might have been
expected from a cross-roads member.
finally, on tbe last a ay oi tne ses
sion, the republican leader remained
stubbornly in bis seat while tne
