THE ABeUB. SATURDAY. JUNE 6. ISSa
JOTS OF JUNE
June is the month of roses, the happy season of
(lowers when all nature is glad. But there are
other joys, for instance getting nearly two
dollars worth of groceries for what one dollar
used to buy. That's what makes home happy.
There is ONE place and ONLY ONE where
the measure and quality keeps the same, while
the prices keep getting lower. Shields It is who
keeps them guessing.

It was wheelmen's night and a
goodly number, considering the op
pressive condition of the atmosphere,
were on hand. It was a success.
Upward of one hundred and fifty
riders participated in the parade ar
ranged lor last night by the Young
Men's Christian Association. Travers
ing the more prominent thorough'
fares, along which red light and pyro-
teenmes were generously displayed,
with their gaily illuminated wheels,
the long line presented a bewildering
sight and one that will be long re
membered by all who enjoyed wit
nessing the spectacle. W nile nearly
all of the wheels were more or less
decorated, there were several which
were so gorgeously arrayed as to
relegate the others to the background.
wnere tne attention they otner-
ise would receive came not.
To some of the decorations much
time and no little expense were at
tached. But the result warranted
it. The parade was nice; it was all
right; to be plain, it was immense;
and the association has offered a re
ward for the apprehension of anyone
who did not enjoy it.
ine nrst evidence of the approach
of evening had hardly put in an ap
pearance before the merry tingle of
oeus Degan to sound about tne
Young Men's Christian Association
at the corner of Nineteenth street
and Third avenue. Gradually the
riders assembled until the surround
ing thoroughfares were pretty well
lined up with wheels that were dec
orated and wheels that were not
decorated. Anyway there was a
whole lot of them there And it
would have taken Uarnum's circus to
attract as large a crowd of people as
lined the streets to witness last

It was shortly after 8 o'clock when
the riders fell in line along Eigh

Ta the case of Misses Kerr and
Carl, both were dressed alike, and
had their wheels decorated about
the same, so it was left with them'
selves to decide who would take second
prize. Miss Miller, the winner of
the first prize, was prettily attired in
a pure white costume, which corre
sponded with the decorations of her
wheel. Miss Kate Elliott likewise
attracted ronch attention as she bore
grarcfuily the colors of the associa-

Democratic County Nominations Soon to
One week from today the demo
cratic caucuses are to be held pre
paratory, to the county convention to
meet at the court bouse the following
Wednesday, June 17. The Argus
has sought to impress upon the party
the duty of naming strong and repre
sentative men and of securing candi
dates who will not only accept, but
wax pnt forth every enortfor the suc
cess of the party. It has been the his
tory of the democratic party in city as
well as county affairs, that with it
the office ha sought the man, while
with the republican party the exact
opposite is true the candidates have
demanded the offices, and once in
stalled, have clung to them as tena
ciously as if the intent of the law was
to extend a life lease to the incum
bent once selected. That is true of
the circuit clerk and of the state's at
torney in the present campaign as in
augurated by the republican party.
j.ne democracy has only to name
good men to win. The party is seek
ing sucn candidates and when they
are picked they should not hesitate
to respond to their party's call. It
is the party that seeks its men that in
the end is bound to command public
respect and public support. The
government was not founded for the
purpose of keeping chronics in office,
and in Rock Island county the only
way to mate a change is to elect
democrats. The coming county con
vention will pick the right kind of

Attempt to Ucemo the Attractions
The town of Sears has made itself
ridiculous by adopting an ordinance
iicensmg the attractions at the Tower.
The improvements made at this his
toric resort by the Tri-Citv Railway
company have made the neighborhood
wnat it is, a source or attraction and
admiration, and the ordinance looks
very much like revenge for the com
pany having fenced in its open air
theatre which the people out there

resist the oppression which Sears
seeks to impose, even if it comes to
