NOW THINK HARD
In ordero bring before the people
generalljra better conception of Rock
Island's advantages and to cultivate a
taste for well written advertisements
THE ARGUS offers a prize of $5 worth
of books for the best display advertise
ment calculated to induce the location
of residents or factories in Rock
Island. The contest to be conducted
On the Following Conditions
(1) The contest is open to any resident of Rock
Island, male or female.
(2) Only one "ad" will be considered from each
(?) The advertisement must not contain more than
one hundred words.
(4) The contest opens Tuesday. May 18, and closes
Saturday, June $ , at 6 p. m. All "ads" must be at The
Argus office by that hour.
(5) Every "ad" must bear the full name and ad
dress of the contestant and the number of words it contains.
(6) The award of the prize will be made by a com
mittee of three, composed of T. H. Thomas, Charles Buford
and Prof. J. E. Gustus, of Augustana college.
(7) The winner will be given an order for $S worth
of books of his or her own selection.
Id This Connection It May Be Said
That an advertisement containing the
fewest words is often the most striking,
and that the most grammatical is not
always the most attractive. Common
sense and truthfulness should be
kept in mind. The ad that is the best
in all respects, the most striking, origi
nal and most likely to carry conviction
with it, will win the prize. Competitors
will bear in mind that the "ad" should
be prepared as though it were to be
used in New York papers for the pur
pose of attracting factories or residents
to Rock Island. The "ad" is to be what
is know as a display advertisement, in
other words one to be set in large bold
type to attract attention.

Washington, June 4. The senate again
made rood progress on the tariff bin
yesterday, covering about ten pages of
the metals schedule and almost com
pleting' It. The formal contest against
the measure was maintained, but all
amendments tending to change the bill
as reported were Toted down, and the
finance committee sustained. The de
bate was mainly of a technical charac
ter, the Republican senators continuing
the policy of refraining from making;
speeches. Before the tariff bill was tak
en up Tillman gave the senate another
hoar of exciting; controversy over the
proposed sugar investigation. He de
fended himself from mi hi (ah ml chama
relative to his administration of the
governorship of South Carolina, and
then moved that the committee having

Gallinger, proceeding, said the people
of each senator's state must pass upon
his character. Intimations and vague
charares had been made attainst the
members of the finance committee and
against the senator from New Jersey
(Smith). Those who knew these sen
ators needed no investigation to show
tnat tne charges were false. The sen
ator from Rhode Island 'Aldrtnhv
leading member of the finance commit
tee, had risen and had made a complete
and sweeping denial to the senate. So

paper, wnicu was tne senate to ac

these charges are false, then It is time
to aton the lies spread before the nnhn.
this slander of ink and to punish the
men guilty of tne falsehood; and until
you do so you stano convicted before
the American people." The time had
not arrived, Gallinger said, when the
American press was to be muzzled in
the manner suggested bv the mmmtn-
from South Carolina.
After Gallinger concluded Tillman
made the atatement that Tnu
Nevada had told him that he was ready
to report tne investigation resolution.
Gallinger said this could hardly be true,
as the committee had not acted. Till
man repeated his assertion, whereupon
Jones of Arkansas, the other member
of the committee, arose and In positive
tones, declared "The chairman could
