HAVE NO FEARS OF AMENT
Maakw ASi ae aetke
The Union ad its bogy man an
mnah mistaken in the position they
assume, that there ia any fear exist
ing in Rock Island af the present
time, or that there has been ruch
anxiety that under any possible cir
cumstance Snpt. J. E. Ament might
bsretnrnea to the control 01 the
Rock Island public rchoola. No one
would be foolish enough to antici
pate, or even imagine such n contin
gency. It i) doubtful, indeed, if
the Union ttsell mas really con
sidered such, a thing possible.
Hence, not the teachers, nor
any one else has had any
misgivings on that score after the
way the public spoke June SO a year
ago. But it is the spirit ol the past.
the lingering hatred of the admirers
of the relegated superintendent,
the sworn vengeance of his followers
that haa awakened tbe feeling of
alertness on the part of the friends
of the schools. One particular i
identified with Ament's course 'has
been known to declare that he
would live tto vindicate hia friend
by removing those one in particu
lar from the schools, who darea to
be courageous enough to oppose him.
and who eventually had the satisfac
tion 1 of aeeing him ousted. It
is but the ever cropping spirit to
seize control of the schools again,
of eagerness to see friction in the
board, and of anxiety to do anything
to divide pnblie sentiment, and af
ford the coveted chance to atrike at
those who struck at Ament that
famishes the warning. No, there is
no danger of Ament coming back.
bnt it is not proposed to permit even
the shadow of the man, who cansed
the misch'ef in the schools, to be
thrown over the board, and until the
Union shows that it ia no longer con
nected with the consplraciea of those
who have been left to avenge Ament,
it will carry defeat to whom it gives
its endorsement in school affairs, just
as it did last Tuesday.
The Union seeks to set forth some
of Mr. Ament's virtues in its diatribe
this morning, which are surely out
of place in an effort whose object is
apparently to be conciliatory. We
all learned the Union's estimate of
Mr. Ament a vear ago, but it ia aim
ply justice to that gentleman to say
that it was not ao much the Innova.
tions that he sought to introduce in
the schools that wrought hia ruin, as
his methods and hia manners, and
if as the Union says, Supt. Toung
has put into successful operation
some of the same ideaa without op
position from the teachers that fact
austaina and vindicates the teachers
in their opposition to Mr. Ament, and
cot the superintendent, and estab
lishes very distinctly the difference
in the character of 'the present head
of the school corps and hia predeces
sor. As far as keeping up the fears of
the teachers and otbera is concerned,
there is no "amiable junta" organized
for such a purpose, and the Union in
seeking to pronounce the contention
of last year dead, it need only be said
there is no more effective way of
keeping a corpse before the public
than in talking about it, and the
morning paper made the first refer.
ence to the late lamented this morn
ing that haa been made for several
months. The teachers and other
supporters, of their cause in the
schools need no "amiable junta" to
arouse them. They know the house
of their friends. They know where
they received encouragement and
sympathy, and aid, and leadership
wnen tney were naeaea, ana when
that to which they would most nat
urally look for relief was tnrned
against ''them the board of ed
ucation. They fonnd the ty
rant s nana neia over them, despite
their protests and appeals. Aa hu
man beings, they look not with favor
upon what comes from an agency
like the Union that aaid the yoke
snouia not oe oroaen.

lag-la it a Jaka?
At police headquarters there is a
note (which tells of the probable
drowning of two men. The missive
waa in a bottle, which was foand
thia morning in the river between
Eleventh and Twelfth streets, by
a little son of Mr. and Mra. Joseph
Gutsweiler. Here is the message,
which is written with s lead pencil
on a soiled piece of white paper:
April 26 Whoever finds this will,
please communicate with Perry Per
kins, 311 Mulberry street. Dee
Moines. The boat ia ainking and we
are two miles from land. We have
been trying for eight hours to get
in, but impossible. Mayhap some
thing will occur which may save na,
but we have given up all hope.
H. B. Cbabv.
The finding ot messages of this na
ture in the river has become of such
frequency that the police are not in
clined to look at the present affair
seriously. There is one thing cer
tain and that is that the accident, if
it was one, did not occur around
here, as the Mississippi is not aa
wide, by long odds, aa mentioned in
the note. However, the boat may
have been foundered in one of the
northern lakes, and the bottle floated
all the way to Rock Island without
attracting any attention.

Several days ago another bottle
was taken from the Mississippi near
Willow Island, opposite Weyer
