AN INSULT TO LABOR.
The Pretentions of Political I'nder Bosses

The mere attempt of machine-dried
politicians to line up labor organiza
tions at the behest of the "corner.
and thus enjoy the distinction of hay.
ing used laboi anions for the further
ance of ends purely political, is one
of the most audacious, as well as th
most desperate, undertakings of the
present campaign. The bare fact that
an ex-mail carrier, and one who
trying to make good his chances for
reappointment to his old place, should
have been selected as one whose
duties are to accomplish this
and who has already boasted
having made one conquest, is ev
dence of the political trickery back
of it. And the very thought that a
under-political boss who blows of
controlling the teamsters of the city
and a mongolian politician dow
town should assume to deliver th
labor vote of Uock Island, throu
resolution or in person, to any ticket
is a gross insult to everv intelligen
labor union man iu the city. Th
sustaining virtue ot labor iu organi
zation is the elimination of politics
from its councils and actions, and
the presumptuous purpose to trod
under foot this principle now in tha
mad rush to force a corner on politic
into control despite the wishes of th
people, will fall beneath the weight
of iis own iniquity. No boss politi
cian carries the labor vote of Uock
Island around in his pocket t
deliver it as the fruits of his own toil
to the support of any ticket, especiall
one which after the niachine-nuid
candidate for the mayoralty, is main!

The Reservoir Amour the Greatest of
Ills Achievements Aart From Keeping
' the City Apace With Others In Point
of Modern Improvement and Devel
opment. It has scarcely been before in the
history of local politics that the gen
eral inclination of ail classes of voters
has been so marked a week in advance
of the election as is the case at the
present time. The people seem to
have made up their minds as to the
course they propose to take, and that
i, to continue the present adminis
tration in ollice, to the end that it
may not only have opportunity to
complete the good work in hand, but
that public appreciation may be given
of an administration that has been so
painstaking and industrious in kehalf
of the public good. The friends of
the administration, although gratified
by the signs of the times so unmis
takably apparent on every hand, are
determined to relax no effort to make
the election day verdict as nearly
unanimous as possible. All the argu
ments that can advanced on purely
political grounds cannot shake the
determination of the people of Rock
Island, irrespective of politics, to re
turn to the executive chair a man
who has been faithful in the discharge
of his duty, and one who has held the
welfare of the city foremost at all
time?. The city of Rock island has
advanced more in size and import
ance, and in the characteristics of a
modern city in the time that Mayor
Medill has been in office than in any
dozen years of prior history.
