Next November the people of Ruck
Inland cuuntv will bmve aa epportu-
ity of attesting their coulidence
aud appreciation of a man who has
grown up among them, and who has
ever been a willing leader in any en-
terprihe averting the well are of his
community. William McKniry is i
representative of the people. The
eruocrals in thecountv and district
had a full icalization of this fact
when they nm.iinated him at the
Wl I.I.I 1M M'KKIIIV.
recent convention for the logislature.
That the voters will ecu that he is
ntttalled in tho ollice !y a mtjority
such as he il:erve it is reasonable
Burn and reared in K ick Island
county, Mr. McKniry has from early
manuooa been laenunua witn its
progress and development. Proba
bly the hardest work lie did for his
county was in connection with the
locating of the Western hospital for
trio insane, which is now 111 course
of erection at Watertown. promis
ing to lie one of the grandest institu
tions of its nature in the United
States. From the moment it became
known that such an institution was
to be built in northwestern Illinois
Mr. McKniry was atnong the iirst to
take off his coat and go to work for
the purpose of landing the prize for
his own countv. Ha labored early
and late, and probably none know
better how faithful! v he strove to
capture the prize than Gav. Alt

ray no. The same inborn pride in
his own county which prompted the
uisttnuisncil 8t:ir.cl made by Mr.
McKniry in behalf of the hospital lo
cution nas alwavs asserted itself in
all matters pertaining to Rock Isl
and county. It is the development
of such traits that points out to the
people their best representative.
Mr. McKniry is essentially one of
us. He is with us, and where we
have, as we do now, the opportunity
to tcad to the legislature a man
whom we know, whose cnergiea
