Only through the vigilance of
Rock Island is the county's good
name for standing by its obligations
sustained. The vote of Mollne and
the aggregate coo o try districts was
against sustaining the county la meet
ing its bonded indebtedness con
tracted with the content of the peo
ple of the county for the court bouse
construction. Ai was staled yester
day, the special tax to meet this
emergeocy carried, as shown by the
official returns, bv 646 majority. It
was stated in Tax Aku s the dav
followiog the election that tho prop
osition had probably carried by n
small majority, but the Union of
yesterday morniog gave it ep sad
this led two of the Moline papers to
gloat last eveoiog over the apparent
success of the spirit of opposition,
thus sustaining tbe feeling prevailing
there of hostility to the court house
from the first, merely because it was
located in Rock Island. But while
these two papera were eagerly eeia
ing tbe opportunity to shout over
what they imagined was the defeat
of tbe proposition to make the court
house what it should be and to sus
tain the pledge of the people In bor
rowing the money to insure its con
struction, another piper with more
teal than prejudice nave tbe actual
vote, harrowing ns the fsct must
have been to some of its readers.

The reproduction of tbe figures
given in last evening's A nuts will
not be Inopportune now in order to
show how nobly Rock Island did its
duty. It cast 1.361 votes for the
special tax to Sis against, while Mr
line gave 622 for, to 90 ) against. Tl e
aggregate vote of the rural districts
forwasG-J9 and against 814. This
makes a total of 2.672 for, to 2.026
sgeiost. The attitude of thecounfy
districts is as significant in one re
spect as is the disposition cf Molioe.
It will be remembered that tbe orig
inal proposition to bond the
county carried through the vote
of Rock Island, and that as a kd
as it was succcs4ful the Molioe su
pervisors demanded as much repre
sentation on the committees direct
ing its construction as Rock Island,
and notwithstanding that this was
accorded them, they were uoable
logo Daca to their city and insure
the approval on tbe part of the
voters up there of what tbe msioritv
of the county bad already deter-
.e 0 m a
mmea to ao, ana what the county
was in honor bound to do. Tbe
same is true vf the country districts
Since the beginning of the court
house construction, manv of the
country members have been
stmttiog around as if tbev were
the lords of creation. Th-v wanted
all to say of tbo new building as the
representatives of the people. They
wanted all the recognition and took
tbe most conspicuous part dariog

stages of tbe work. The responsi
bility was with them as much a
