way. A patron gets sidetracked into an old

chance of saving money on his groceries.
In trading with Shields its different. He is
always on the lookout

And when he gets one his patrons profit
thereby. If he doesn't find one he cuts to

- The morning pmper emits a whine
aaent the prospect of defeat of its
proposed surrender of the .special
charter under which the Rock Island
schools are operated, and it fails to
nnderstand whj the teachers who
have so much at heart in the election
next Tuesday shonld be generally
disposed to oppose any change in the
iaw at inis time, me morning
paper further Indulges in a disserta
tion aboot its 20-year career a coin
cidence that it tallies exactly with
Kip van Winkle's record and about
how it has always fought for the best
interests and highest good of all. This
is a nice bit ol philosophy coming
from a paper whose editor was about
last Tuesday seeking to induce can
didates to take the field in opposi
tion to tnose wno 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
snouia 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- od
the fight of a man with the charac
teristics of Ament against the teach
ers who have been here for Tears and
have become endeared to the people, is
wonderf oily consistent with its boast
of this morning. Day after day the
columns of the morning paper have
oeen abandoned to calumny and
venom such as would more properly
belong to the Sunday Sun from the
pen oi the superintendent, devoted
to respectable people without regard
to sex who have offended him by ap
holding the teachers, while the Union
has accompanied the same with ex
pfessions of admiration of the super
intendent and his masterly capacity
for sweeping awsy his accusers by a
aasn oi nis pen, wnne ireqnent al
lusion has been made to "this
scholarly gentleman" and his lor-
icat deductions." 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
The Oat and Oat lerae.
The issue in the election next
Tuesday is simply Ament. The
teachers are against him. The Union.
Dr. Kinyon snd the board members
whom tMa latter controls are for
him. The Union and Dr. Kinyon
are the originators of the scheme
to v change the school law.
There is a motive in the
desired change. With it success.
ini ur. Kinyon, although defeated
now which, however, he does not
propose to be if he can help it, let
me teachers understand that Imag
ines he could rally his strength on
an election for nine members, under
new provisions, to elect a majority of
next year's board and then woe to
the teachers who have asserted them
selves now. The noble spirit which
dominates the board at present con
trolled by Kinyon and Ament, was
thown when it dropped Principals
H&Uey and Kirkpatrick at the an
nual election and declined to accept
the. superintendent's resignation.
Atf another election when the present
losue nas oeen settled and order and
discipline reestablished in the schools
under a new superintendent, it may
be well enough to talk about a
change in the charter. At such a
time the public will be better pre
pare u to act upon is, ana mere win
be no conflicting interests and no
complications to prevent its success
ful execution. We have had stir
enough in the schools for one year.
Let ns have a year of peace and res
toration, men we will be better
prepared to talk of a change in the
system about the time of the gen
eral election, when everything can
be done properly. In the meantime
the teachers cannot be blamed for
There have been a great many re
ports spread among the teachers and
others for the purpose of confusing

kind enough to impart the advice

voted upon properly the whole elec
tion would be illegal. Others have
suggested the application of the pro
visions oi tne Australian naiiot Jaw,
which are of no effect in an election
affecting schools conducted under a
special charter. There are to be no
crosses made on the ticket next Tues
day, and bnt for the superfluous pro
vision tacked on to the bottom it
wonld be unnecessary to make a
