Congressman Forsakes His
ties at Washington to
IS WOBHNG MOUSE EAED.
I tattle tiroond Seems for the Moment
Transferred as Predicted a Few Day '
Ago In The Argus A Call on the ,
Inland, and a Day of General Has-!
Congressman Prince is back in this I
end of the district from Washington.
Less than a month ago. just on the '
eve oi congress declaring war on a
foreign power, the representative from
this district hastened away from the
capital and came on to Rock Island,
thinking the opportunity for winning
supjKirt was for the moment greater
here than in Washington. He spent
a week or more on the skirmish line.
and then returned to his Galeshurgj
no me irom whence lorthwitu went
assurances, which came out in the
Chicago jiapersTYfiat the congressman
was so well pleased with the outlosk
throughout the district that he felt
that he could return to his duties at
Washington conscientiously. So
Prince returned to the capital
and remained a whole week, and now
he is back in Rock Island county.
The prospect of Moline Incoming tlie
actual battle ground of the congres
sional tight with which theTepiihlican
party is now rent in Rock Island
county at least as predicted in The
Akjls a few days ago has so im
pressed itself upon the Galesburg rep
resentative that he is putting in time
in that city. Last night he held a
reception at the Keator house there,
and today he is in the hands of his
friends, who are out on a hustling lice.
A visit was paid to Rock Island arsen
al today where the men were im
pressed" with the fact, as far as
could he done without discourtesy to
Capt. Blunt, that the man who pre
vented the wages of the men lieing
reduced was on the island, and later
Moline factories were alse inspected.
Prince a Kuxtler.
That Prince is above all things else
a 'hustler, is beyond dispute. This is
particularly apparent at times like
the present when the conventions pre
ceding the congressional convention
are approaching. One or more little
trips back here "from Washington do
not amount to much when the great
end is to be considered. In the
meantime the Prince letter writing
bureau is being given a vacation to
the end that those constituting it
may study the war bulletins prepara
tory to pisting their chief when he re
turns to Washington.

WALLACE SHOWS ALL RIGHT.
Aggregation Makes a Good Impression In
The Wallace shows are in Rock Isl
and today, and while this aggregation
makes no extraordinary pretentions
of leing the great and only, vet it
created a happy surprise in all the
essential elements that combine
to make up a really fine tented
exhibition. The parade made a
particularly tine - impression as
it passed through the streets this
morning. In proportions and in com
position it was all in the world that
any tirst-class show could present.
The wagons, the trappings and the
costumes were neat, bright and clean
in appearance. There weresever.il mag
nificent coaches surmounted by bands
of music, and there were numerous
attractive features incidental to the
general character of the parade. The
animals throughout, lioth domestic
and in captivity, were line looking
and well fed. Crowds of people lined
the streets to witness the moving
sjiectade and all were more than
pleased with it.
The tents are pitched in the Gordon
lot on Moline avenue beyond Brooks'
crossing, the grounds hcing in every
way accessible, and thousands visited
them this afternoon. The exhibition
is creditable in all departments and
the circus performance one of the
best. The entertainment will lie re
peated tonight and is worth seeing.

Samples of the Water to be Kent Away
....,,, m .,.. ....
Committee Will Soon be Able to
Make a Recommendation to the Coun
cil Notes of the Session.
Mayor Medill stated at last even
ing's council meeting that a test of
the eflit iency of the natural sand filter
was in progress at the waterworks,
w here a small filter had been con
structed. The results so far were
highly gratifying-' to those who" had
pinned their faith to the natural sys
tem. Samples of the water had been
drawn, and so far as clarification was
concerned, had leen perfectly treated,
the only point to be investigated be
ing as to the removal of the' bacteria.
The mayor said that samples of the
water had lieon sent to the state uni
versity at Champaign, and to Prof.
Ezra Smit h for bacteriological tests and
the committee hoped to hear from
them soon when it would be ready to
report to the council its delinite choice
of a system of nitration for the
plant on the bluff. The couucil a few
weeks ago opened bids for the excava
tion, etc.. at the reservoir site. Sej
parate bids were invited on each por
tion of the work, the council's idea
leing to select the lowest bidder on
each and thereby save the city some
money. Now several of the contract
ors are complaining, and claim the
city cannot legally 'cut" the work
up. The contracts have not Iteen
awarded yet; the bidders' checks
are in the 'hands of the city, and if
bidders fail to do as they agreed in tho
seeifications they will lie obliged to
pay dearly for it; "so says the council.

We read altout rings used by
jieople centuries ago. We may
say rings are as old as the earth
and jdanets. because they are
said to "travel in rings.". To
day the ring is worn more than
any other product of the jew
eler's art. They are made up
in many different styles, from
the plain wedding ring to the
beautiful bejeweled set ring,
There are a great many rings
sold nowadays that are just
made to sell and not to wear.
Such rings should lie avoided.
Then there are the kind of rings
that we sell, lieautiful and tasty,
