The 'board of supervisors yester
day afternoon awarded the publica
tion ot the official ballot of the No
vember election to the Weekly Bock
Islander, of this city, and the Bepab-lican-Journal.
ot "Molina. Super
visor Knner moved that Tbk Roce
(slakd Akgcs and ifollne Dispatch
be awarded the contract, bat Super-
visor v ooa Darn movea an amend
ment that the Rock Islander and
Republican-Journal be the paper so
aesignaiea. me ooara, as it has
done in its acts relating to the
court house, where the individual
members were ansioua to conceal
their acta, proceeded to a secret bal
lot, and the amendment carried 12
to 7, and then the contract was
awarded to the Rock Islander at Si
cents per running ich and the Ba-
puoiican-Journal at $15 for the tob.
The board had previously Invited
Dias lor the publication, and while
the law specifies strict! v that the
duty of awarding the printing be
longs to the judges, . yet the board
has usurped its authority and as the
judgea have so far not asserted their
rights the papers ot Rock Island and
Moline submitted bids. But the
provision ot the law that dele
gates the authority spoken of to
me j ad gee also seta forth the
nature of the papers that shall pub
lish the billot the section referred
to under chapter 2, relating- to the
duties of judges and clerks, says the
judges shall cause to be published
prior to the day of election in at least
two newspapers, it there are so many
published in ea;h county, represent
ing the political parties which cast
at the preceding election the largest
and next largest number ot votes"
a list of all the nominations, etc So
that white it is very clearly the
duty of the judges to have the pub
lication maue, the fact that this pro
vision is disregarded by these self
constituted autocrats and interpre
ters oi state law is no more a mis
apprehension ot duty than the fact
that the papers designated were
chosen. The Republican Journal is
not a democratic paper. There is
no newspaper directory in the coun
try that quotes it otherwise than an
independent paper, and this informa
tion carried np to date in Rj well's
ot this year comes from iti own
proprietors. The partisan Rock
Islander on the other band
s not a repre ontativo paper of anv
sort. It is a sheet ot limited
circuiaton ana it will no
doubt be obligged to publish a spe
cial edition of 1,000 copies to give
the official ballot any circulation at
all. and this opportunity will like
ly be seized upon by the irrepres-
iDie ueo. urait to work the ad
vertisers for another worthless drai?.
Under the principle that the Rock
Islander was favored by the board, a
hand bill with but one issue conld be
authorized by he bard to publish
the official ballot. Bat it is the
same unlawful procedure that per
mitted the furniture contract for the
court house to ro to a firm which
had stockholders in the board. The
Rock Islander publisher is a super
visor, and the board is partial to its
own members, whether the law for
bids it or not. As to the Republi.
can-Journal, it was obliged to have
toe cnairman oi the democratic
county committee give it a certifi
cate of character, and this with affi.

A large representation of the col
ored people of Ruck I stand are indig
nant nil ne canning en on that are
being made now by the republican
machine in the state to whip them
into line for Herts for state treas
urer, notwithstanding the known op
position oi tne colored race to this
man. Last spring there waa held In
Rock Island n meeting of the col
ored people, the prime object of
which was to protest ngainst the
placing ot Herts on the republican
state ticket, much less his election.
When the colored men's marching
dab was formed it was distinctly
understood that the race was to
stand out ngainst Herts, although
the dab might carry the McKiniey
banner, bar. now it is learned that
one of the leading and most influen
tial representatives of the race here.
and who .stood out the strongest
against Herts at the beginning and
np to now. has recently made a trip
id volcano on n complimentary
ucart ana nss returned with a
bundle of circulars, which he
hae been industriously circulating
I'om nouse to nouse among the col
ored people. The purport is
to place Mr. Herts in the light of a
much abused and much persecuted
individual, and thse who nasail him
as liars, persecutor and slanderers
men who betray the race to heln
others. etc; that the opposition to
Dtni u "uuuaing a race issoe on
falsehood and deceit. and treason
and hypocrisy attack Henry L.
Hertz all for democratic dollars.
The nrgnment presented is that
no colored man can afford to vote
for a cause which appeals to hi
prejudice rather than bis reason.
etc. The presumptuous method
adopted ot swinging the col
ored people into line, together
with the con ten u of the circular
have only tended to intensify the
feeling of the colored people against
Herts, nnd the attempts of his party
to force him upon them.
