Gov. Juiix Riley Tanner's fine
hand is seen by clemocrat.s in an art
ful scheme that has been extensively
employed by state ofiiee holders to
win votes for Tanner's candidate for
treasurer, Whittomore. The plan is
chiefly valuable and effective because
it is simple. It consists of heads of
state institutions writing letters to
democrats in distant counties re
questing them to hold themselves in
readiness to accept an appointment
on the staff of the particular institu
tion from which the missive is writ
ten. The democrat who receives it is
urged not to disclose even to his clos
est friend the good fortune that has
befallen them, because, if he did so.
the effect would be to cause a flood of
applications to pour in upon the
writer of the letter." A democratic
leader from down the state came into
possession of one of the several thous
and communications of this c haracter,
which had been sent out of the Illi
nois stale reformatory at Pontiac by
General Superintendent George Tor
renee, and yesterday took it to state
head.iuarters in Chicago. Secretary
Rent ley quickly recognized its politi
cal import and made inquiries which
convinced him that similar ones have
been written bv Torrence and other
Tanner employes to many thousands
of democratic' voters, it snows now
desperate has become the state ma
chine, which, having despaired of
controlling the republican vote in the
state, is now turniug its attention to
sharp practices on the democratic
voters. Hot it won t work.
The taxpayers of Rock Island
county are not prepared to put the
important otlices of Kock Island county
into inconi iH'ten t hands, to parcel out
responsibilities of the highest kind as

That is the reason they will consider
qualifications above all else and vote

A servant uf the state.

That nowadays obtain.
Then list ye to the brief remarks
Coneernlntr Sister Payne.
Tis honors senatorial
This hapless freaiu-s seeks:
I suv this that ye all may know
Whereof the story speaks.
By Zuma s frugal husbandmen
The virgin soil who till.
This relio of old Roman days
Is simply known as !iU-''
Xow mark ye well, this citizen
Of bad cii'ar renown.
Is iruileless in the country.
liut he's foxy when in town.
So hen he hits the pavements here,
And shakes his rubber boots.
He shakes the farmer's interests, too.
And passes out cheroots.
It's then he loves the factory bands.
Ho acts at their behest.
Of course he loves the farmer, too.
Kut he loves the townsman best.
Be s dead in love w-ith everyone.
It s business M i to be.
He even loves the business man.
And the lovely garnishee.
With a way that's quite convincing
He has kept the votes in line.
And with water on both shoulders.
He has jrot there every time.
Of his rustic hypnotism
He has often laughed m-itb irlee,
Bui ut last the public's onto him.
As you wul shortly .see.
He still insists his record
In the lower house was clean.
Hut that Sister s nallmiz dizzy.
Is must plainly to be seen.
Thousfh stout of heart, and battling on.
His finish now he sees.
While his whiskers irently rustle
In the chill November breeze.
His bad breaks down at Springfield
Will be told on us no more.
His nvssy jokes and poor cigars.
Will be tone forevermore.
And on Tuesday just at midnight.
In the pale moon's cheerless trlow.
They will lind him sweetly sleepinn.
Neath a monstrous drift of snow.
Hour on Expansion.
One of the most calm and sensible
of republican conservative utterances
on the doctrine of expansion is that
of Senator Hoar in a speech at Wor
cester, Mass. Said he: "It is said
that Torto Kico is already ours. It
may be that Porto Itico is " to become
ours. But there is no authority un
der the constitution of the United
States to acquire any foreign territory
save bv treaty approved bv a two-
thirds vote, or bv an act of legisla
tion, in which the president, the
house of representatives and the sen
ate must unite. It is said the Phil
ippine islands are already ours by
right of conquest. For one I deny
this alleged right of conouest. Hu
man beings men, women and chil
dren, peoples are not to be won as
spoils of war or prizes in battle. It
may be that such doctrine linds a
place in the ancient and barbarous
laws of war, but it has no place in
the code of morals of the people of the
United States. I have stated else
where the conditions which, in my
judgment, warranted the acquisition
of Hawaii. Hawaii came to us with
the consent of the crown government,
the only governmsnt capable of main
taining itself there for anv consider
able length of time. In the case of the
Philippines, we are asked .to subject
a nation and hold it in subjection.
We get them by conquest and hold
them by force, in the case of the
Hawaiian inlands we get them by
compact made with their lawful gov
ernment. Some of our good friends
have said thoughtlessly in their zeal
that where the American flag goes it
must stay. Uut surely they cannot
wish to commit the country to that
doctrine. We planted it on" the City
of Mexico. But no man demanded
that it should stay there. If the war
goes on we shall plant it on the coast
of Spain, but we have no desire to
hold permanent dominion there.
'If the Philippine islands become
ours, then under the late decision of
the supreme court every child there
after born in them becomes an Ameri
can citizen, free to come, free to so.
Are you going to hold them as sub
ject s.J Are you going to have a
trained ami governing class? Are
von going to have the national tax
gatherer the most frequent and
the best knowu visitant to every
American houser Are you going to
increase manv foM vour national
These things are involved in this
wild and impassioned crv for empire
For myself. I disbelieve and hate
the notion that the American eople
are to submit to such a transforma
