to vote for tither. The man who
votes his ballot straight loes his vote
on representative unless he otherwise
iudicatcs his preference.
Sf. J. McKnlr.
M. J. McEniry, democratic candi
date for the legislature in the Thirty
third district, has been an active party
worker ever since- he . cast his' first
vote. Twice he has served as secre
tary "of the county eentral committee,
of which he has been a member 18
years. Born on a farm in Zutna town
ship, in 1858. Mr. McEniry improved
his spare time in preparing himself
for the law, and in 1888 graduated
with high honors from t he law depart
ment of Ann Arbor uuiversity. Twelve
years ago he began the practice of his
profession in Moline. which city has
6ince been his home. In 1892. in the
face of certain defeat. Mr. McKnify,
for the sake cf his party, accepted the
state's attorneyship nominatiou and
made a personal canvass of he coun
tv. In 1892 he was aimointed post
master at Mollae by President Cleve
land, and was removed in isai be
cause of his active participation in
the Bryan campaign. Mr. McEairy
has never shirked responsibility or
duty where his patty was involvea.
Lie has made personal sacrifices in
order to keep th party machinery in
the county in operatiou. Republicans
as well as democrats in this section
aie familiar with his untiring ener
gies iu this direction. He is a demo
crat through and through, and now
stands before the people as a democrat
jn his candidacy for the legislature.
J. il. Andrew.
J. 41. Andrews, the second candi
date on the democratic ticket for the
legislature, is a native of Henry coun
ty. He was born at Geneseo 29 years
j ii anm:evs
ago. H pent hi boyhootl on a farm,
afterward taking a course at Geneseo
collegiate institute, and later graduat
ing from Knox collrg. In lS35be
established the (Jeneseo Arena, the
first daily paper to 1 published in
that town. Tiring of the newspaper
profession, he disposed of his interests
in the Arna and took up the study
of law. He searched Blackstoce for
three years, but before he had pre
pared himself for admission to the bar
bi love for newspaper life returned
and he entered the Kwanee field,
launching the Kewanee Verdict, which
he is conducting at present in part
nership with E. A. Whitney.
For a man who asks for support
at the hands of the democrats, Mr.
Andrtws' course has been somewhat
problematical. He has not been fair
to the party at all events, and beyond
that he has not been fair to Mr. Mc
Eairy. at any atage of the contest,
nor is he now before thp people.
In the first place, he has car
riei in the editorial columns of his
paper, during the present campaign,
the republican national, state and
congressional tickets," as well as the
democratic tickets, and in the latter
he has not been generous enough to
his rivat in the same' prty in which
he poses as the candidate for the leg
islature to print his name, permitting
his own name since the illegal Cam.
bridge convention to staad as the sole
candidate of the democrats for minor
ity representative. So that while the
course of Mr. Andrews in carrying
the republican ticket, together with
his persistent personal attacks on the
leading members of the democratic
party in Kewanee, taken with his in
dependent candidacy subterfuge that
pit him in a position, were he in
clined to use it, to get on the ticket
in spite of hi party, placed the
depth of his party fealty in question,
an unfairness of spirit, equally as
unfortunate for him. is shown in his
refusal to print McEairy's name in
his paper at all.
. The plea of Mr. Andrews to the
voters of 'Rock Island county for fair
ness com 33 with poor grace, indeed,
for one whoe attitude has been so
characteristically unfair to his party
and his opponent.
FINE POSTAL IMPOVEMENT.
Extension of the Rsclatratloa of Letters by
The postotHce department has
granted the local postoSice authority
to extend the registration of letters by
carriers so as to include the entire
city, with the exception of the two
business routes, which extend from
Fourteenth street to Twentieth street
south to Fifth avenue.
Business houses in the residential
districts are not excluded as under tho
old rule. Those residing at a distance
from the postollie are especially ben
efitted, inasmuch as thev can have
money or other valuable matter regis
tered at their own door.
This concession from the depart
ment was not obtained without effort,
and it is hoped the public will avail
itaelf of the advantage offered. The
extension of registration of letters by
carriers will take effect Nov. 5.

Next Tuesday afternoon at b oVlock
the polls will close on an election
which is to determine the presidency
of the United States for the ensuing
four years and seal the political fate,
temporarily at least, of various
other aspirants for the offices that
are to be tilled at this time. In Rock
Island, as throughout the country,
public interest has reached a high'
tide, but in the closing hours of the
great campaign there is an ominous
silence some have termed it the calm
before the storm, and it is pretty gen
erally conceded the latter disturbance
will result disastrously to the party
that at present holds the reins of the
Meetings were held last night by
active democrats in the several wards
of the city and arrangements made
for the checking of every vote that is
cast net Tuesday in the city. The
precaution is taken to insure an hon
est expression at the polls, to prevent
those not franchised from balloting.
It was shown a few days ago by
The Augls that either there were
many names missed by . the census
enumerators or there were names on
the registration books of the city that
do not belong there. The democratic
party demands an honest ballot
that is all.
As an evidence of the fact hereto
fore alluded to of the possibilities of
fxcess registration in Rock Island, the
democratic committee of the Fifth
ward last night, in checking over the
poll lists of the ward, as taken from
the registration of last Tuesday,
found 250 names of citizens not now
in the ward, and which were dropped
from the democratic poll books.
Simplest War Safest.
There has naturally beeu a great
deal of inquiry about the manner of
voting in view rf the complications
that have arisen over the appearance
of the names of two candidates for
minority representative on the demo
cratic ticket with three votes each.
There are several ways suggested for
voting the billot in a manner that
would come within the law. One is
to simply mark the circle at the top
and the square opposite the name of
the minority representative candidate
desired. Another is to mark the cir
cle, also the square spoken of, and in
addition draw a straight line through
the name of the candidate not desired.
Another is to omit the circle and vote
the squares clear down the ticket,
omitting the one opposite the candi
date not desired. The law and all
authorities on the question of the
application of the Australian ballot
law seem to indicate the wisdom of
avoiding any act that might mutilate
the ballot. The simplest way is the
safest and best.
