The Proper Ticket for School
REPRESEHT THE BEST TJTEBESTS.
Tbe Emmm Why K. A. Doaaldaea aad
J. W. Walek Shseld be Elected Over tlie
Belt-Announced Candidate The Votlug
Plaeee. Tomorrow occurs the annual elec
tion for members of the board of
education of tho Kock Island school
district. Two directors are to be
elected to till the places of F. E.
Bobbins and H. If. rolsom, whose
terms expire. The voting places are
to be the No. 1 school house in the
First ward, the old No. S school in
the Fourth ward, and the old No.
7 school in the Seventh ward. Tax
payers should bear the places in
mind and none snouia laii to vote.
Domldwa mad Welch Should Win.
There are abundant reasons why
the best - interests of the public
school system suggest the election
of Messrs. B. A. Donaldson and J. W.
Welch, the popular candidates over
F. E. Bobbins and Mrs. W. A. Norris,
who were announced several weeks
ago, really long before the election
was tnougbt oi uy people in general,
who, from what it can be learned,
arc not in the field in response to
any'expression of pnblic sentiment
or "of a desire which is at all wide
spread or general. It will be re
membered that the outgoing direc
tors, Messrs. Bobbins and Folsom,
were elected three years ago. ' There
was no reason to think Mr, Bobbins
should be a candidate any more than
Mr. Folsom. The latter had given the
matter no attention, but would have
been willing to stand for re-election
had it not been for the ad
vantage taken to force him off the
board, and be was summed at the en
tirely premature announcement that
Mr.Uobbins had formed a combination
by which he and Mrs. W. A. Norris
were formally announced as candi
dates. This was five weeks ago.
There was naturally much inquiry as
to why Mr. Bobbins should be con
sidered a candidate and Mr. Folsom
not, and many of pur representative
citizens called on the latter and asked
him to become a candidate, there be
ins nothing in Mr. Folsom's record to
justify his enforced retirement, and
the public becoming satisnea mat.
there was a systematic effort to force
him out bceause he had not fallen
entirely in with the wishes of the de
sire of one man to rule the board,
the teachers and all that pertained to
the public school system. The situa
tion was canvassed. Others of our
business men competent to become
members of the board and guard the
school system from manipulation by
any clique or ring, or any individual.
were proposed. Air. rolsom s record
was investigated. It was found that
in all respects ho had discharged his
duty faithfully and acceptably, but
in some instances he had opposed
certain movements that he did not
consider consistent with good school
government. He had followed his
conscientious convictions, and had
been outspoken in these convictions.
(Jn this occonnt he was slated fcr re-
tirement. Public opinion seemed to
uphold Mr. Folsom, and those who
took the interest in the matter mat
tho situation warranted, found that
Mr. Folsom and, J. W. Welch, a for
mer member of the board, more near
ly met the views of the majority of the
people as just the men for election,
and they were duly announced. A
few days later Mr. Folsom concluded
that inasmuch as there were influ
ences opposed to him the same in
fluence that nad crowded mm on
and, convinced that candidates agree
able to all who have a proper disin
terested feeling lor the schools
should be selected, he withdrew and
B. A. Donaldson became the general
ly accepted candidate in his olace.
Having been solicited to become a
candidate, as Mr. Folsom and Mr.
Welch had, he finally consented, and
Messrs. Donaldson and Welch be
came regarded as the popular candi
dates. The same system that has
obtained in the past is applicable to
them. They are not self-announced
candidates, and hundreds of our cit
izens expressed themselves that they
met the public idea of the matter
exactly, whereas, as to Mr. Bobbins
and Mrs. Norri4bere has yet to be
found the source that is responsible
for their entering the field besides
the fact that the one man who is
seek inj: to control and rnle the board
arranged the combination to the ex
elusion of Mr. Folsom because he
conld not control him.
Mea or Broad Views Dcasanded.
With the present condition of
school affairs, financial and other
wise, there is a just demand for bus
iness men such as Messrs. Donaldson
and Welch are. The mere suspic
ion that any individual, no matter
who he is, is seeking to run the
schools, and is putting up certain
candidates regardless of who they
are, is sufficient ground for the
broad-minded tax payers to step in
and elect those whom they know are
qualified, whom they know will
guard, zea'ously the interests of the
schools and who will see that the
designs of any one man are not al
lowed to be carried ont. From snch
evidence as has come to light, it is
possible that the board has made a
mistake in the choice of its new su
perintendent. There is no desire to
arouse prejudice toward the ap
pointee at the outset, but from his
own conduct, from the record that
follows him from the little town
from which he was selected to pre
side ever the school system which
tax payers have at great expense
built up tbbe one of the bestln the
country, from the opinion of school
men. not only in onrown countv. but
elsewhere, it is, to say the least, es
sential that men be selected who will
see that the future hoard shall con
trol the superintendent, as well as
all that pertains to the schoo'i, and
that nothing shall be allowed that
will tend to demoralize or jeopardize
so important an object of public
thought, attention and interest as
our public school system. . .
In every conceivable light. Messrs.
Donaldson and. Welch are the best
candidates for members of the board
of education to be selected tomor

Is one ot the great differences in' ready-made clothing.
There is as much difference between ready-made clothing
makers as there is between merchant tailors. Some
concerns make good np so poorly that the goods is
really worth more before it is cut up than after being
made. Oar clothing is made by reputable concerns, all
or it. Our finer grades are made up better than the
cheaper ones in some respects, but the cheaper-grades
are made up with but one end in view service.
Ton pay us for clothes represents so much v all it. If
you buy a $4 suit of as for yourself, it has got to give
you good service. It it don't we'll give you a new snit
to make it good. If you add a dollar to the four dollars
and buy a $5 suit you get a dollar's worth mere value.
If yon double your "V" and buy a $10 suit you'll get a
suit that'a worth exactly twice as much as the $4 one, -and
you'll save $5 by buying it of as. We're going to
sell suits this week 'and at the same time show you how
to make every dollar
