IU Fa SWta Atttaetioa The Simple
IM7 at the EleetlM, Which Oscars
- The morning paper emits a whine
anent the prospect of defeat of its
proposed surrender of the .special
chatter under which the Rock Island
schools are operated, and it fails to
understand whj the teachers who
have so mnch at heart in the election
next Tuesday should be generally
disposed to oppose any change in the
law at this time. The morning
paper farther indulges in a disserta
tion aboot its 20-year career a coin
cidence that it tallies exactly with
Rip Van Winkle's record and about
how it has alwava fontrht for th H.t
interests and highest good of all. This
is a nice on 01 pnuoeopny coming'
from a paper whose editor was about
last Tuesday seeking to induce can
didates to take the field in opposi
tion to those who are known to up
hold the teachers1 cause, and which
move the Union explained yesterday
was in order to place the proposition
to change the school law properly
before the people. Yet in the face of
these facts the morning paper fails
to comprehend why the teachers'
should oppose any measure in con
nection with the election which has
been identified with an effort hostile
to their cause. Aside from this the
attitude of the Union in taking up
the fight of a man with the charac
teristics of Ament against the teach
ers who have been here for years and
have become endeared to the people, is
wonderfully consistent with its boast
of this morning. Day after day the
columns of the morning paper have
been abandoned to calumny and
venom such as would more properly
belong to the Sunday Sun from the
pen ol the superintendent, devoted
to respectable people without regard
to rex who have offended him by up
holding the teachers, while the Union
baa accompanied the same with ex
pressions of admiration of the super
intendent and his masterly capacity
for sweeping awsy his accutera by a
dash of his pen, while frequent al
lusion has been maie to "this
scholarly gentleman" and his "log
ical deductions.11 The teachers have
seen quite enough to understand ex
actly where the Union stands. They
expect no quarter from it, they seek
none, and they propose to give it
