Utrnpn Beglna the U publican Straf
According to YVashiagtjn advices
the postoffice department ha de
cided that sufficient cause is con.
twined in 'serious charges'1 filed
gainst Postmaster M. J. McEairy,
ot Moline, to warrant his removal, and
Congressman Prince has. been al-
vised to recommend a successor.
Mr. McEniry has as yet received no
official notification of his canteni
plated dismissal, nor has he, he says,
had even an intimation of -he nature
of the charges fiied'against him. He
states, however, that if they are
pnrely of a political nature. he bows
humoly to the will of the powers
that be, but he d esn't propose to
submit without protest to imputa
tions as broad as those contained in
the Washington dispatch, no matter
whether he is removed or not. If
serious fault has been found with his
official acts, he believes ha has a
right to know what it is, the nature
of the charge and thei name of tho
person preferring it, not with a view
or hope of retaining the offijo, bat
that he may have opportunity to de
fend his personal character.
A number of Moline business men
were interviewed this morning with
reference to thd reported purpose of
the department to remove Postmas
ter McEairy on the strength of "ser
ious charges," and there was much
surprise expressed at the informa
tion, for the general opinion was
that he had made a modtl postmas
ter, and had conduced the cilije in a
businesi-Iike and satisfactory man
ner. Now For tha Tasa'a.
It need hardly be taid that the
prospective removal of Postmaster
McEniry together with the sugges
tion to Congressman frince will re

his distant relationship with the

will be the result. The chances for

Mat r la Moratoa Paper's Stabbirn
ea u to lUbw.
The Union's obstinate opposition
to the appointment of a police ma
tron in Rock Island led it to present
a ridiculous spectacle in its at
tempted reply yesterday to the array
of arguments gleaned from the let
ters in Saturday's Argcs of
chiefs of police in other cities in
support of the need of such an ad
junct to onr police system. Taking
the varions duties that are properly
assigned to the iffi-e as a matter of
convenience in addition to those of
necessity belonging to it, the morn
ing paper disregards entirely the
most essential requirements by
garbling the letters mat The Argus
had printed. It then insists that
inasmuch as atl of the nses made of
the matron in some of the other
cities are not necessary in Rock Inl
and, and that as the chief aim is to
attend to women, and the women
she has to attend to are for the most
part the class Rxk Island is not cul
tivating, we "should not seek to
facilitate a change from condi
tions essentially healthful and well
deserving ot 'perpetuation." Was
there ever more senseless and silly
argument presented even by the
Union? Yet the t elf tame psptr con
tends that the duties of matron are
just what it imagined them to be.
The line of reasoning to which the
Union abandons itself ia just what
might have been exported of it, when
it was energetically opposing a paid
ore aepanmeni as it is now tne po
nce matron mat as long as nock
Island was not cultivating fires it
did rot need a reliable, properly rig
ulated, paid department. Now its
argument is that because Rock Isl
and is not cultivating a certain class
if women whom the law is called
upon to deal with it requires no
proper means of treating with such
casts. On th same theory dismiss
he police force on the ground that
Rock Island is not cultivating crimi.

emanating from sueb. Three

the reputation of the city was be-
smirched, and slandered, and lied
about through the columns of that

deserving of p rpe'.oation that the , Lolifse Installment company's qnar

But the fact that the morn-
paper ha9 established its own incon-
sistency in one respect only makes
its inconsistency in another retard
the more apDarer.t. and reallu
laugh provoking. Any person cf
average intelligence wou'd not for a
minute doubt that if the moial con
ditions of Rock Island are healthy,
the way to continue them so is to
engage moral influence; which
moral influences do not "facilitate
a change from conditions essentially
heaithful," baton the contrary pro
mote those conditions "well deserv

fort and good of humanity, in

her bands as to nuke it neressary
to add janitor's duties to keep her

mayor and ' city council had made
abundantly satisfactory headway in
the matter ot a site for the proposed

would the major or any of the com

that it is but necessary to agree
