His Methods Are Denounced bet
the Republicans Keep
Democrats of long standing and in
fluence from all parts of the city have
during the past few days commended
the course The Argus, has taken in
repudiating to the extent of its inter
est in the party, Icnejim in the
conduct of party affairs in Hock Isl
and city and county. The fact that
The Argus, in commori with all demo
cratic influences in the countv who
have the higher and better influences
of the party at heart, has declined,
positively and uncompromisingly to
longer recognize the claims of John
I. liooney upon the party,' or to give
countenance to any proceeding in the
name of democracy which may bear
the stamp of his influence, is hailed
with satisfaction and confidence. This
action involves a duty which every
loyal representative of the party
must come to realize, and t is both
gratifying and fortunate that so many
of the party rank and file have at
once come to this conclusion.
Pror.n Objectionable Element.
Mr. Looney has proven (in. objection
able element not only in the conven
tions and caucuses of the party, but
in the role of leadership he has es
tablished himself as a would-be dic
tator, a disrupter and a fizzle. It
would therefore be an evidence of
abandonment, and of political Kiiicide
for the party to under any circum
stances hesitate to renounce as well
as denounce any proceeding conducted
in the party's name that would have
back of it the influence of Looney or
any of his followers. Self respecting
democracy will not be bound by
Looneyism; on the contrary, it will
insist that those who owe their politi
cal standing or existence to .lolin
Looney, look to him absolutely for
support and recognition. Mr. Looney
evidently has influence with the re
publican city administration in -Kock
land. To that organization he now
belongs, and to the support of that
organization he should devote himself
It is well written tht no man can
serve two masters. The democrats are
not inclined to dispute or to crave the
Looney mastery in any sense.

High School Girls Demonstrate
Superiority at Basketball
SHUT OUT FIRST HALF 16 TO 0
Final Score 18 to 8 Hljjb School
Boys Win From the V. M.
C. A. Team.
Two exceptionally fine games of
basketball, both resulting in favor of
the local high school, were witnessed
last evening at the high school gym
nasium. The Kock Island high school
girls won from Davenport high school
by a score of 18 to 8, and the high
school boys won from the Y. M. C. A.
team to the tune of 4S to 20.
The girls game began with a field
basket for Hock Island and continued
a series of baskets for the same side.
The Davenport girls fought determin
edly. The score showed 10 to 0 at the
end of the first half. Fourteen of
these points were made by the basket
forward. Blanche Smith. All the girls
deserve honorable mention, especially
Gail Postlewaite, the basket guard.
Not a fonl was called on the Kock Isl
and girls during the first half a note
worthy record. Their team work was
also extremely fine. At the end of the
first half Miss Otto, who played cen
ter for Davenport, was injured, not
seriously, but so that she was taken
out and Miss Morgan put in her place.
The Davenport guards changed places
and apparently their team was great
ly strengthened. The Kock Islanders
seemed to have lost their ability to
make baskets, and 20 minutes more
playing brought the score to IS to S.
In size, the visiting team had greatly
the advantage, but the advantage did
not extend to basket throwing. The
teams lined up as follows:

The boys game was interesting and
well played. The score says that the
high school boys had far the best of
the bargain, but the first half was
very close up to the last few minutes
of play. At the end it stood 20 to 15.
The second half was more one-sided,
the score being IS to 5. Of the high
school boys, Sullivan and Morrison
deserve especial praise, though every
man played his part in a highb cred
itable manner. Liitt made some very
pretty baskets. The lineup of the
boys' teams was;

FOR SOUTH ROCK ISLAND
The retail grocery trade of J. P.
Siero n & Co.. located at the old fair
grounds in South Kock Island, has
grown to such an extent during the
past three years that W. C. Maucker.
the owner of the property, has decid
ed to erect a fine two-story brick
building. 32 feet front and HO feet
deep, .to cost about $5,000, work to
commence at once.
Another, noted improvement is the
reorganization of the old firm, which
was composed of J. P. Siemon and W.
C. Maucker, but as Mr. Maucker can
give no time to" the business, and as
the new firm proposes to carry a gen
eral merchandise line and require ex
perienced help, they hae received and
accepter! a proposition from Fred C.
Davis, son of Ferdinand Datis. tobuy
a tbirJ interest in the business. Mr.
