was a warm night. The Journal thns
tells the storv.
'Fully twenty-one persons assem

the purpose of hearing H. A. Weld
tell why be should be elected state's

Dr. Whiteside having assumed a re

Warm weather, beautiful night and
the fact that it was Tuesday were
given as the causes for the slim at
tendance. Mr. Weld opened by saying
that he was not prepared to make
a speech, as he received the
invitation only six days ago. An
other reason he assigned was the
fact that the issues have not been
definitely defined by the national
administration, and he doubtless real
ized that he might make a break
Notwithstanding that he had
pledged to let the boys off, he kept
going for half an hour, playing about
the edges of what be thought the is

man, went back to the war in the
south for a chance to pick fault

they were a republican blessing and
predicting the election of William Mc

sure that McKinley will figure in the
issue somewhere. Mr. Weld invited
himself for a return date, 'after he
gets the bang of the thing.1 and the
administration maps out his re
marks, and the boys seemed willing
that be should return. Later, to tnow
that be was all right, he joined the
club, planking down the quarter neces
sary to put him in good standing.
This was after Capt. Bennett pledged
him a large vote from the seventh

Mr Weld though the latter seemed
a little crestfallen that the captain

ALSO CANDIDATE US ANOTHER CITY
Shown In an Inaccuracy aa to a Com
Xbe attention or ihearqus was
called today to the fact that a certain
section of Twenty-first street had not
been visited by the census enumera
tor, and fearing that the district
might be included in the precinct of
the Fifth ward already reported as
completed, the people who fear they
have been omitted desire this refer
ence to the matter. The explanation
of the circumstance, however, is de
veloped in the fact that the first precinct
is the one completed instead of the sec
ond. The fact that attention has been
called to the inaccuracy so promptly,
is nevertheless gratifying to The Alt
ers, for it indicates the interest that
has been awakened in the enumera
tion, and that no one wants to be
missed. This is right. If there is
anyone in the completed first pre
cinct in the Fifth, in which Mr. Ja
cobs has made such a record for expe
ditious work, who has been passed.
The Argcs is sure the enumerator
will be glad to be apprised of the fact.
And while this is up, the opportunity
is taken by The A kg us to state that
as fast as enumerators report their
work completed, if any who may not
have received a call from the cen
sus taker will make the fact known to
The Argus it will undertake to di
rect the attention of the proper offi
cial to the fact
The matter of the absence from the
city of one family from the
iirsl precinct in the fourth
ward during the taking of
of the census was brought to the at
tention of The Argus today and
through this directions were given by
which the information will reach the
enumerator in the district where
the family residess. People gen
erally whose neighbors to their
knowledge through absence from town
or ortherwise may be overlooked, owe
it to their city to report such fact to
the census enumerator in that local
ity, and failing to find such official
The Argus will always be ready to
contribute its eforts to the end that
none may be omitted.

There is a likelihood that Robert G.
Young, superintendent of the Rock
Island public schools, will resign with
the close of 'the present term to ac
cept a more responsible and more
Mr. Young has been called to the
superintendency of the public schools
at Dubuque, Iowa, and while the
board of education there is awaiting
a definite answer from him, he is a
candidate for the position of superin
tendent in-one of the principal cities
of the northwest, a city whose schools
have attained a standard of efficiency
that is recognized throughout the
country, and whose board of educa
tion has already claimed several of
the leading instructors of Rock Island,
Davenport and Moline.
Mr. xoung came to Rock Island
four years ago from Montana, bis
reputation as an educator preceded
him here, but his success in improv
ing the schools has far exceeded ex
pectations. The wonder is that he
could have accomplished such good
results in so short a period. He has
elevated the schools to a position
that has won Rock Island the
distinction of having one of the best
public school systems in the west a
standing that has attracted the atten
tion of outside beards of education
and resulted in the loss to the high
school of some of the most able
teachers it has had.
It is sincerel t hoped there may be
some turn in affairs that will induce
Mr. Young to remain in Rock Island,
but in justice to himself it is proba
ble he cannot do so.
Offer to Mr. Darby.
J. F. Darby, principal of the high
school, has also received a tempting
offer from another city, but he has not
determined jet what he will do. The
high school under his administration
has advanced in its work, perfect dis
cipline has been established, and in
all respects the school has gone ahead.
Mr. Darby is one of the bright and
promising young educators of Illinois
and all would regret to hear of his
leaving the city.
