World became disgusted with Mr.
McKinley's imperialistic craze, and
now supporting the Kansas City plat
form, it says: -
"In its presentation of American
principles and policies, in opposition
to imperialism and militarism, the
democratic platform constitutes about
as powerful a campaign document as
was ever issued, it is self-explana
tory. It needs no supplement of ar
gument. , It states tne simple yet
splendid truths in a way that carries
straight to the mind and conscience
of the man whose ideals are the tra
ditional and time-tested ideals of his
country. The World - takes a spacial
pride in tne fact that the democratic
platform contains this embodiment of
conscience and wisdom. tor tee
World was the first to suspect in the
late Bummer of 189S the secret of Mr.
McKinley's failure to muster out the
volunteers and his vague outgivings
about 'currents of destiny.' And
late in August when Mr. McKinley
showed definitely that he was yielding
to the imperialistic craze, the World
began its campaign by getting the
opinions of a hundred eminent Amer
icans upon the question 'What shall
we do with the Philippines r lhese

Sept. 4 and republished throughout
the country, started alignment for and
"Ihe World continued to appeal to
Mr. McKinley along the lines indi
cated in these sentences from an edi
torial of Sept, 17. 1898. Shall
we disavow our historic sympathy
with oppressed people struggling for
freedom? Is our doctrine that 'gov
ernments derive their jusu powers
from the consent of the governed' to
be repudiated as to the 9.000,000 in
habitants of this group of islands at
the antipodes? Are we to have an
other war and this time war not of
liberation but of subjugation, not for
freedom but for conquest?'
Ihe world has steadily opposed
imperialism and militarism and. urged
opposition on the democratic party
when Mr. McKinley had definitely
committed his party to those poli
cies. Its ideas of a right platform
were contained in an editorial pub
lished on April 18, under the heading.

with teams from early dawn.
Tne two preceding annual picnics
have been grand successes, but the
third will far outstrip them, both in

diversity of attendance.
The town will be gaily decorated
for the occasion through private ef

arches will span the streets along the
line of march.
The celebration proper will be
held at Longview park, which is
located in the pasture west of Sev

avenue and is well sodded and shaded.
At 11 o'clock in the morning there
will be a parade of Woodmen, For

afterncon will .be taken up with

to be carried out in a manner long to

Error la Jadfmenl.
The arrest of Verd Miller, who will
be tried Monday, for a violation of the
tandem ordinance, was undoubtedly a
lack of judgment on the part of the
officer. The object of the law is not
to prevent people, under stress of
circumstances, from hauling two rigs
with one team, and. if the mayor is
countenacing such a ridiculous
course, his tendency is to defeat
the real intent of the ordinance,
which, if justly enforced, is to
stop the drawing of truck wagons
tandem, from which practice two
deaths of children have resulted in a
short time, as well as to prevent
cruelty to animals and protect labor.
It is nothing unusual to see two heav
ily loaded wagons drawn by one team
and driven by a mere boy. In other
words, the purpose of the tandem
law, as The Argus sees it, is to end
the practice of one team and one man
doing the work of two teams and two
menTas well as to prevent accidents.
Before the adoption by the city
council of the tandem ordinance, the
Rock Island Fuel company, in many
instances, hauled two loads of wood
at a time with one team. The compa
ny,' as said in The Abgus last even
ing, intends obey ing the law, but says
it will alsorr.i.v the price. The pric?
to patrons froai First to Twentieth
streets will ,,main the same, but
from Tweni"cta to Twenty-fourth an
increase of 10 cents per load wiU be
made; Twenty-fourth to Thirtieth 20
cents, and from Thirtieth to Thiity
eighth, SO cents.

A Special Invitation
Is extended to very lady in this city
to call at 2121 Fourth avenue, and in
spect the splendid work being done
by the scholars in the Diamond
Garment Cutter school." The man
agers wish us to say to tbo public
that they only have room for a few
moro students. "First come, first
served." An investigation will con
vince those who are in favor of "prac
tical education" that this is tho
chance of a lifetime. Parents, if you
want your daughters educated in n ,
useful art of cutting and fitting any'
kind of garments worn, our advice to
you is consult tbo managers of the
above named school ero it is to lain.
We point a few words of comment-:
tion from those who have' taken t'
vauUge of the instructions.
An Experienced Dress Makers' Opinion. "
Galesburg, III., Nov. 8, 180:.--I--took
a course of lessons in the
Diamond Garment Cutting school and
can say that -I am well pleased. 1 """
have been following dressmaking for
several years, aud have used other -.-systems
of cutting, but find that the
Diamond Garment Cutter is the best
of all. I can heartily recommend the
system as a perfect guide in tho mat
ter of .cutting dresses, and in fact
garments of every description.
I am respectfully,
From Hollos. III.
Moline, 111., April 2, 1900. I havT
taken full instruction in the Diamond
Garment Cutter and am deIightedaM
with the system. With it I can per"
fectly cut and tit any kind or stvle of
garment worn. I would not be with
out it. Yours truly.
