The Aral's hastens to offer its ac
knowledgement to Steve and Phil,
of their profound consideration.
Gt"Y C. Scott, one of the most pop
alar young democrats of Mercer
county, is the democratic candidate
for mayor of Aledo.
The city would take big chances
in the substitution of C. F. Blade as
city clerk for A. D. Hucsing. and in
. an important ollice like this, the best
is none too good.
The Union is always very sensi
tive, yea. and inattentive as to where
it is trodding in political campaigns.
Hence its painful reference to per
sons stubbing their toes this niorn
iJ. After all The Akgcs' carriage
stoop is about as much of an orna
ment to Second avenue as the
Union's lone watchman, and about as
useful since the latter cannot be used
to tie horses to.
R. Ki s hmaxn is making one of
the strongest and best canvasses ever
conducted by a candidate in Rock
Island for mayor. He is a man who
wins friends and confidence rapidly
and he keeps them.
The republican organ should not
by its own course measure the atti
tude of a newspaper toward the can
didates of the party it represents.
The Argus does not demand a fee
for the mention of a candidate's
name either before or after the con
Tention. The Union offers a suggestion f. at
might give the lone watchman some
thing to dn in view of the fact that
he ia not to have what he is banking
on he might keep inattentive per
sons along Second avenue from stub
bing their toes on a public con'
After next Tucsdav the tax pay'
era of the county will realize that
they can petition the county board
on a subject, whether it be the prin
ciple of recognition or objection to a
proposed course of action without
being termed bovcottcrs" bv the

The city s pohev has in recent
Tears been to keep a rood man in
the office of city clerk, when once se
cured. Indeed, this was the main
argument that burdened the columns
of the Union np to two years ago
luring the biennial spring cam
paigns and it invariablv won. But
the Union has forgotten all about
It is to be regretted the editor of
the Union should have such a feeling
of soreness about the stone carriage
stoop in front of The Argus ollice as
to drag it into a political campaign
with the assertion that it is only
for inattentive persons to stub
their toes against.' Had not the ed
itor of the Union better take the
middle of the street when he is not
sure cf his bearings?
It should be remembered that
there is a congressional candidate to
be elected next Tuesday as well as a
municipal and township ticket. Fred
K. Bastian, of Fulton, the democratic
candidate, is an intelligent and pro-
srrcitsitc-spiriicu citizen wno IS la-
miliar with the district and its needs,
and is particularly closelv identified
with and interested in Rock Island
county, owing to the fact that White
side countv. like Rock Island, is look
ing for so ;niuch fromtheHennepin
The Union's talk about Bladel's
qualifications for city clerk is staff
and nonsense, and no one knows it
better than Bladel himself, to whom
defeat would prove in reality the
greatest kindness. Bladel has no
idea of attempting to assume the
practical duties of clerk in the possi
ble contingency of election, and the
active affairs of the ollice would, un
der such a condition, be in the hands
of one of his kinsmen, while Bladel
would draw the salary for the use of
TnE reason that Steve Collins and
Phil Miller are not running for office,
let The Aegi s say to the Union, is
that both are too foxy to submit
their fate to the people. They pre
fer to make the combinatons and
then get the fruits afterward. Col
lins has already taken his share and
is now asking the public through
Sinnet and Oberg if he can have it.
With Miller, it all depends upon
.in ox whether there is anything in
life worth living for or not.
The 36th general assembly passed
a law that the governor should ap
point each year three citizens who
should act as a committee to inspect
the Northwestern Military academy
at Highland Park, 111. In accord
ance with this law. Gov. Altgeld has
appointed as such committee for
ix;i.: Brigadier General Harris A.
Wheeler, ef Chicago, commander of
the First brigade. Illinois National
guard; Col. Sam Burdette. staff rep
resentative of the Chicago Jimcs
Herald. Chicago, and CaDl. William
S. Campbell, Springfield. The in-
pection will probably be made some
time in April.

Edward Atkinson has written for
the April nnmber of the Forum an
article of unusual economic interest
on "The Battle of Standards and the
Fall of Prices," showing why prices
have declined and en what'articles.
Scribncr's Magazine for April
abounds in Faster features. The
cover itself is a very striking ar
rangement ol lilies, ihe frontis
piece is a particularly excellent en
graving by Closson of a painting
called "The Worphipers." Then
follows a striking series of Faster
pictures by four of the best illustra
tors of our day Smedley, Lynch,
Abbey and Weeks. These illustra
tions represent Faster scenes in New
York, Paris, old England and Jeru
salem. Another original feature of
the number is an Easter hymn,
written many years ago by Thomas
Blackburn, interpreted in a series of
six full pages by Henry McfJarter.
These pictures sre of remarkable
decorative value. The number
abounds in other interesting reading.
Home and Country, New York, for
April, the Easter number, has a very
appropriate and seasonable as well as
beautiful frontispiece entitled. "An
Easter Morn." It is but one of sev
eral full page engravings in the
highest art. The illustrated articles

"The Beautiful Models of Paris,
in the March Cosmopolitan, satisfy a
long felt curioMty in regard to the
women who have been posing for the
world's famous paintings. The Cos
mopolitan has carefully gathered a
collection of the most famous of these
portraits and used them to illustrate
an interesting article by a distin
guished French critic, Fr. Thiebault
Sisson. Nor does the beauty of the
originals fall short of the ideal on the
painter s canvas. In the same num
ber is a delightful article about the
famed sea-girt isle, for so many cen
turies a fortress and prison Mont-Saint-Micbel.

written from personal experiences, is
perhaps the most thrilling tale of ex
ploration of the ocean's depths ever
put on paper. Ihe nctioa of this
number is unusually entertaining.
Probably no two words in the
English language are more misused
and abused than -lady" and wo
man." and there is much wisdom
therefore, in a popular discussion of
the proper usage of the words, such
as is given in the April Ladies' Home
Journal by Margaret Heland, Mrs
Burton Harrison and Sarah Orne
Jewett. "The Burning (Question of
Domestic Service' is treated intelli
gently and interestingly by the count
ess of Aberdeen. Jessie Bartlett
Davis, the well known contralto of
the "Bostonians." contributes a val
uable article on the Uses of a Con
tralto Voice;" Mrs. Burton Harrison
speaks of the deportment of "The
Well Bred Girl Abroad." and her
travel requirements; Kate Greena-
wav, whose quaint pictures have
never before appeared in the pages
of a magazine, is represented by a
page of April children, whose his tor
ies are delightfully told in rhvme by
