TO KNIFE THE TICKET
Purpose of a Factional Meeting
Held in Moline on Democratic
TO SUPPORT SOCIALISTIC NOMINEE
Mr. Moore Himself Undecided, Bat
A meeting was held at Industrial
hall in Moline last evening, partici
pated in by the supporters of the
particular candidacy of W. II. Moore
for' the minority representative nom
ination, at which it was decided to
support P. .1. Carlson, socialis
tic candidate for the legisla
ture in preference to O. A. Cooke,
the democratic nominee. Uenton Da
vis was chairman of the meeting? and
1J. YY. Hank secretary.
Position of Sir Moore
When interviewed by The Argus to
day Mr. Moore stated that he was not
in attendance at the meeting1, and
was still undecided as to his attitude
with reference to the course adopted.
He declared, however, that he would
not support Cooke for the legislature.
Mr. Moore advanced the argument,
nevertheless, that a move such as had
ber n inaugurated would bring? to the
polls a vote in support of the demo
cratic county ticket that would oth
erwise be indifferent owing? to Mr.
The Arfjus greatly regrets the
course that has been adopted by the
Moline faction and is likewise sorry
to learn of Mr. Moure's purpose to
knife his rival for the democratic
legislative nomination. There can be
no excuse for such an attitude. The
assertion that the object is to gain
support for the democratic county
ticket will hardly stand in justifica
tion f the move. While all good
democrats are anxious that all should
be done possible for the county tick
et, no loyal representative of the
party will desire to see anything done
that involves the sacrifice of any oth
er legally established candidate on
that ticket. Furthermore, it is quite
as inixrtant to democrats to send
a straight party representative to the
legislature as any other duty devolv
ing upon them election day. Mr
Cooke has been declared by law the
democratic candidate for minority
representative. IVyond that his de
mocracy personally is above question.
More Does Not Commend Itnelf.
The move on the part of the Moline
fad ion does not commend itself
to loyal democrats, and it is sincerely
to be hoped that -Ir. Moore will think
iM'K'e before he either joins, in or
takes any other step that would he
otherwise than strictly in accord not
only with his party in all things, but
with what has been established by
the law for his party in the particular
case in which he has been so much

from McDonald's wagon, by worm-

ald, in his defense, introduced evi
