Part of the Kock Island county
delegation returned from the repub

morning train today, haing left the
capital before the business of the
dav was all transacted. A few oth
ers came at non, but a number went
to Chicago and will not le home till
tomorrow. It seems .to he the gen
eral concensus of opinion among
those who were on the ground that
the ambition of Oeorge Y. Gamble to
secure the nomination as clerk of
tlu appellate court for the Second
district were sacrificed entirely upon
the senatorial altar. It is held that
the race for the nomination was so
close that a turn of the hand on the

The ihciiiIhts of the Kock Island
county delegation who placed Mr.

that Dawes ease was hopeless, to in

for Hopkins and thus give Mr. ('am

The majority of the dYlcgat ion
from this count v, however, headed by
C. II. Deere, Y. A. Meese and L. M.
Magill, of Moline, refused to desert
Daw cm and went down to oblivion,
carrying Mr. Gamble with them. The
Kock Island county delegates voted

is asserted that Mr. Gamhk' in the
first place hail the favor of Hopkins,
but the complexion of the local bunch
could not be overlooked.

A LARGER SCHOOL
Effort to Increase Enrollment in
NOW HAVE ADEQUATE QUARTERS
Eighth Grade Pupils in City and
Rural Districts Alike to
Principal J. F. Darby, of the high
school, is planning a vigorous cam
paign for the spring and summer to
secure as large an enrollment as pos
sible in the freshman class of next
fall. For several years past the
quarters of the school have been too
limited to warrant any particular ef
fort to increase the number of pupils
attending, but with the opening of the
new b(iilding all this will be changed
and a considerable number of addi
tional students can be accommodated
at small additional cost to the city.
The plan is to enlist not only the
efforts of the high school teachers
and high school pupils in the city to
use their personal efforts among the
members of this year's eighth grade.
but to reach out to the country and
make an effort to interest all those
who successfully pass the finals in
the rural schools and in the villages
throughout the county.
Iteeeptlon for Klurhtli irale.
The- eighth grade pupils of the city
will be given a reception by the high
school pupils next Wednesday after
noon at llie Sunday sediool room of
the ISroadwav Presbyterian church
for the purpose of promoting the ac
quaintance of the present and pros
pi'ctive st udents. This pain was adopt
ed several years ago, but was omitted
last year on account of inadequate
facilities. There are .over two hun
dred pupils who will graduate from
the eighth grade this spring. They
will be entertained in an informal
way Tin 1 a program will be given, in
cluding a piano duet by Misses KIsa
Simon and May O'Connor; reading, by
Miss Mabel Conner; vocal solo. Miss
Gertie Carse; piano solo. Miss Maliel

The matter of improving the
grounds surrounding the new high
school has already been taken up and
a committee appointed to take charge
of the work as soon as building op
erations have ceased and the accum
ulated rubbish has been removed.
