Monmouth talks of repealing her
curfew ordinance. It is as much of
a dead letter there as it has become in
Hock Island. -
Ax English authority estimates that
the expenditures of American travel
ers in Europe this year will amount to
f 1 05, 000. 000.
It would be a great injustice to the
weather after all that was said dur

that the prevailing conditions todav
are verv agreeable.
The republicans are so sure of au
easv victory in Ohio this year that
thev are pleading with Gov. Roose

in their behalf.

Molixe has been honored by (iov.
Tanner by the selection of two of
her citizens as representatives to
the trust congress to be held in
Chicago. C II. Deere and W.
f. Eastman have lcen so named, but
the former is credited to Rock Island.
The people here will raise no objec
tion to Mr. Deere representing them
on any occasion, but it does seem that
the governor might have fixed things
tip be! ween the two distinguished
Moline gentlemen to the end that he
might have selected either one with

John Riley Tanner was repudiated
by the republicans of Morgan county,
the home of young Dick Yates yester
day. Charles S. Kannells, chairman
of the state committee, and one of the
governor's most active henchmen,
was snowed under in his homo prima
ry district by a vote of over two to
one because of this friendship. The
attitude of the republicans of Morgan
county can West be judged by perusal
of the following resolution, adopted
at the primaries held in the Sixth dis
trict yesterday: "We are opposed to
the nomination of John H. Tanner by
our party for next governor of Illinois
and niiest our committeemen and
delegates to do what may le in their

well of the Philippines and says that
he is at a loss to know why this gov

might be desirable possessions in the
future, but savs that, as it will be im
possible for a native American to en
dure the climate there and compete
with the native and Chinese labor, he
does not think, as do his comrades,
that it will ever make a desirable
home possession on that account. He
states that the volunteers, and many
