The completion of the official
count of the congressional vote
of last Tuesday in Rock Island
city affords grounds for some
interesting deductions, and the
fact is plainly apparent that Knox
alone saved his party from defeat, not
only on others of the citv and alder-
mauic nominees, but tne entire town
ship ticket. The remarkable rnn
made by the republican candidate
for -mayor, it cannot be doubted.
saved the assistant supervisors,
agaiust whom the forces of united
l&bor and a large percentage of our
pet pie who were opposed to the
methods employed by the board with
reference to the court house, cast
their votes. The vote on congress
man is a fair criterion to measure
party strength. On this basis Prince
has a plurality over Bastian of 1,025,
while the average plurality of Sin-
net ana Uberg over tneir opponents,
Kinner and Larkin, is 317 votes.
So it will be seen that the candidates
for assistant supervisors ran UJ
votes tehind their ticket, on which
party lines were drawn, and 10J21
votes behind the head of the munici
pal ticket, whose plurality is 1,320,
to whom alone they owe their salva
tion. Had ordinary conditions pre
vailed it is, tberetore, plain that
Sin net and Oberg would have been
retired, and the proof is conclusivs
that the votes directed against them
by laboring people and others were
without prejudice to the mayoral
nominee on the same ticket, who
proved such a phenomenal runner.
So in part, it may be said, the
treasurer elected owes his success to
the strength the head of the ticket
gave to all the nominees, as the dem
oo ratio candidate was exception
ally strong, and it is likely
that the democrats would other
wise have landed at least one
more alderman. While, therefore.
the force of the situation is most
pl.iniv shown on the supervisors.
there are other republicans who
may thank the coming mayor for
their election last Tuesday, while
Albert Huesing and the democratic
aldermen who pulled through may
congratulate themselves at having

Activity continues to reign in the
ranks of the republican party in the
scramble for otiice uuder the meoni
ing mayor. Every dav seems to in
crease the prospects for Phil Miller
for chief of police, as he has some of
the most zealous party workers en
listed in his behalf, but opposing
candidates are still in the lieid and
will be until someone else is victcr
or vanquished. The friends of
George Long aro pushing him for

mer, urging him, while Kooert lSen
nett is also talked of as a candidate.
The rivalry for the other offices con
tinues, as hitherto referred to.
Preceding a card of denial
from Horst von Koeckritz that he
is not a candidate for health com
missioner, the Union speaks of The
Aiwrs mentioning the names of gen
tlemen for appointive ouVes who
never thought of leing candidates
This is a matter in which The Atcors
has no interest, and certainly not
enough concern to create any hard
feelings, and the mention of the ran
didates is purely in the line of news
As to Mr. von Koeckritz, Tin
Akgts has, just as it announced
heard his name mentioned in con
nection with the oflice, and it knows
that he was a candidate both before
and after the nominating convention
but he has evidently changed b
mind. In any event the matter is of
so little consequence that The Argus
regrets having brought rebuke upon
itself by the reference to which ex
ception is taken.
However, a few more denials in
support of the Union's assertion
might be in .order and they wouli
doubtless be welcoming intelligence
to Mr. Knox. I.et us hear from some
more of tbem. The Akui s may be
doing the mayor-elect a greater kind

The base ball clubs at Rockford

in a dispatch from that city which
Interest has been aroused
throughout the Western association

claims of Rockford of that organiza
tion and Galesburg of the Eastern
Iowa league to William Kreig, the
veteran player. Kreig signed with
Manager Nicol of the Rockford team
and accepted advance money. He
sent on his uniform measure, and
seemed wili ng to play with the
Kockford team until a few weeks ago.
when he signed with the Galesburg
association to captain and manage
that club. Kreig then requested
Nicol to release him, but the latter
would not consent. The matter has
not been brought to the attention of
President Young by the Rockford
management simply on Kreig's ac
count, there being a kind feeling for
the player here."

If the foregoing dispatch be true.
this is not a laughing matter, to b
puffed away by cheap talk. It is
hard to say how Air. Kreig, if the
facts are as &tated, can break bis
Kockford contract with honor or
credit to himself. Galesburg asks
him to do nothing that is dishonora

a contract and received advance
money, and is now trying to break
that contract, what will prevent his

he would probably prefer to be found
in such an organization than in one

has proven to be.
And as between Kreig and the Rock

The Esrrclare of the Leacara' Closing
The two days1 session of the State
Epworth league concluded last even
ing at the First M. E. church with a
lectnre on the topic, "Brains," by
Rev. Frank M. Bristol, D. D., of
Evanston. Dr. Bristol is a power
ful orator with a rapid, but no less
distinct delivery, his eloquence mak
ing the edihee lairly riig. His sub
ject was discussed with a clear con
ception of the necessity of educating
the brain, which was the dictator of
man's future, and therefore should be
properly cultivated that he might ex
ercise it. The weight oi the brain.
the size of the head, said Rev. Bris
tol, could not be considered
sign oT man's intelligence.
In substantiation of this statement.be
spoke of the characteristics of differ
ently accomplished men whose head
and build were of the smallest, yet
they were the brightest and most Intel
ligent. The men with the large forms
were perhaps in the prize rings and
penitentiaries. The man with great
intelligence was just as apt to have
a small head as a large one, and, he
continued, scientists nave given np
the idea of going according to the
dimensions of the head to weigh bis
intelligence. The average brains
weigh 47 ounces, yet men have dis
tinguished themselves with 43
ounces, while those possessed with
60 ounces are among the most igno
rant. Daniel Webster had an aver
age brain weighing 43 ounces. The
Chinaman has the heaviest brain,
yet he has not demonstrated his su
periority of educational powers over
those of considerably less weight
If we were to consider a man s
knowledge by the weight of his
brain, an Ohio negro, who has 63
ounces, would be the most intelli
gent, greatest and grandest man on
Reference to Men of lilxtlnctlon.
lhe speaker referred to various
distinguished men who had very
small heads. Abraham Lincoln wore
a 6 hat, the average being TJ. Ho
had a small head and a great mind.
Deeds, and deeds alone, said Rev
Bristol, are the only characteristics
by which a man can be measured
It was the brains of our Pilgrim fath
ers which provided and upheld our
democratic institutions and govern
ment, and the perpetuity of our
grand country can only be possible
by tho exercising of brains, which
must be educated that this may be
accomplished. He urged education,
eulogized our public school system
and colleges, and believed that every
child should be compelled to attend
school, that the mind might be
awakened to its usefulness, as the
individual success of life was attrib
utable to the brain. He claimed
that the time had come when society,
as well as citizenship, demanded
brains and character. With news
papers and magazines cheaper than
cigarettes there was something vil
lainous in the voung man who at
tempted to shoulder the responsi
bilities of business and social lite
without education. There was so
many high school and college grad
uates entering the professions and
trades that the uneducated man was
gradually being crowded from his
position because of his lack of in
telligcnce. The speaker concluded
his lecture, which was interspersed
with some very witty and amusing
incidents, with an urgent appeal for
education for all classes, stating that
the school, the book and teachers
were tfce only instruments which
would bring forth the music of tb

department following, with papers
by C. B. Taylor, of limncy, and Miss
Lillian Fitzpatrick. of this city, who
presented lhe Devotional LxrvUse,
in the absence of the author, Miss
Iris James, of Colfax. A scholarly
and instructive address was given bv
Prof. S. L. Guthrie, on the necessity
of study, his subject being "The
Physic Sources of Social Strength."
The report of the resolution com
mittee, which, among othr things
sincerely thanked Rev. F. W. Merreil
and the several committees whose
efforts and courtesies contributed
largely to the success of the conven
tion, was adopted. The convention
also endorsed the V. C. T. U. peti
tion tor the suppression of the liutrir
traffic which is to be considered at
