morning by John Sallivan lying on
the floor of the harness room at the
Uenning Brewing Company's barn,
located in the alley north of Second
avenue, between Fifteenth and Six
teenth streets, weltering in a pool of
his own blood. His throat was hacked
in seven places, while beside him lay
a pocketknife with a blade about two
inches long, indicating that it was a
case of attempted suicide.
Drs. J. F. Comegys and E. M. Sala
were summoned and Kane was taken
in the ambulance to St. Anthony's
From the little talking he was able
to do. it was evident that he was
laboring under the delusion induced
by drink that he was about to be
hanged for some crime and he had
taken this course in preference. At
the hospital it was found that one
stroke of the knife had penetrated the
windpipe and that he was bleeding
internally. This could not be com

STBOUG MEN DESIRE TO COME.
And There Are Those With a-
Pull Too The Busy Book
There are on file more than fifty
applications for the superintendency of
the Rock Island public schools, to fill
the vacancy created by the resignation
of Prof. R. G.Young, who goes to Butte,
Mont. Some of the candidates for the
position are now in the city, and the
efforts that are being put forth by and
in behalf of these learned gentlemen
indicate the standard to which the
head of the Rock Island school system
has risen. It is a healthy sign, one
that Rock Island is glad to see. and
the people are happy to have men
prominent in one of life's noblest
callings coming here seeking to be
intrusted with the direction of that
which is nearest to the people Rock
Island's model school system.
It cannot bo said that the idea of
enlisting the advantages of political
and personal pulls in support of the
ambitious is an agreeable one.
however. If there is one public
oflice that should be held aloof
from the influences of favoritism and
politicians, it is the city school super
intendency. Merit is the first and
only consideration in determining
as to the man. This comment is di
rected at no particular candidate for
the vacancy in the Rock Island
schools 60on to be tilled.
The Bar 7 Book Man.
While the practice of lobbying in
behalf of any candidate for such a
position, is to be deprecated, the
energy of the book agent is,
perhaps, the most tiresome fea
ture of these latter days of school
government. The innovation is one
that should be exceedingly repugnant
to all friends of the public school, and
tax ptyers generally. The represen
tative of the school book publishing
house has become the most meddle,
soui" and. what must be to the fair
minded school director, the most an
noying proposition that has to be
handled in connection with school
management. It has become so
in Rock Island, at least, that
in all that transpires affecting the
schools, this busy individual and
the term is applied in a general sense
- feels that he must have his- say.
He must be here every time there is a
school election. He was much in
evidence and in the plural number
just preceding and during the recent
school election. Whenever a change
is to be made in the corps of instruc
tors, he is sure to be on hand, and
doubtless the board will not be per
mitted to fill the present vacancy
without bearing fuliy from the man
who thinks the curriculum should be
so devised as to make that for which
he exists indispensable in conducting
the schools successfully.
First of All a School Man.
It is a good recommendation for a
school man to have friends who are
ready and willing to go to any
reasonable extent for him. It is a
testimonial to his worth as a man as
well as professionally. It is therefore
gratifying to see candidates coming
here accompanied by zealous
and enthusiastic friends work
ing for them. But when it comes
to pulling wires, political and other
wise, it is something else. The Rock
Island schools want a school man who
cannot be too strongly recommended
by those who know him as such. But
they do not want simply a- man with
