OPPONENT'S HANDS TIED
Politically and Socially Getting
Out the Full Vote is
An important meeting was held at
the city democratic headquarters on
Eighteenth street SaturJv evening
as a windup of the campaign. H. L.
Wheelan presided, and after making a
few remarks on the outlook, introduced
William C. Allen, the candidate of the
party for the office of state's attor
noy. Mr. Alien urged the member:
of the party to uo ail in their power
to secure the full vote of the Jemoc
racy of the county Tuesday. He asked
that the democrats of the county take
advantage of the peculiar situation in
t his campaign for the office of state's
attorney, and in the other fights of the
campa'gn. for the success of the ticket
In stating his position as a candi
date Mr. Allen said:
"If elected to the office for which
I am a candidate I will conduct that
office without fear or favor. I believe
that my opponent is a man who is
bound by such alliances, political and
social, that he can not conduct the of
fice without his actions being controll
ed by others."
Mould Know Xn M. -inter.
The office of state's ptforney re
quires an incumbent who will be abso
lutely independent in his actions, and
one who is not tinder obligations or
bound by political alliances. Mr. Al
len assured his hearers t hat his con
duct in the office of state's attorney, if
elected, would be what his own con
science defined as right, and that he
would know no master in the proper
conduct of the office. He mentioned
the causes that had made it impossible
for the candidates on the county ticket,
himself included, to get into the cam
paign until so late, but declared that
the most had been made of the remain
ing time, and that he looked for the
success of the entire ticket Tuesday.
Mionlil tict Out Ilie Voir.
John YV. Welch was the next speaker
of the evening. He spoke at some
lenght on the necessity of putting forth
every effort Tuesday, and urged thr.
earnest work of every democrat. 'Yo;
can not vote several times, but if you
get some neighbor or friend to vote
and vote for the democratic ticket
your action will have the same effect,'
said Mr. Welch. "We owe it to our
candidates, to our party, and to our
selves to make the best endeavor pos
sible on election day, to elect oui
Mr. Welch predicted the success of
the national ticker. "The dem
ocratic voters should not neglect tc
vote for our candidate for represent a
five. Hon. Oeorge A. Cooke." Mr
Welch siad. "for with Mr. Stringer as
governor of the state and I believe
he will be elected we need democrat
ic backing for him in the legislature.
All I'y-M on DlMtrlt-t.
"This in the district that is looked
to by the state leaders to make tht
bst effort possible, and every vote?
should se that the anticipations o
the leaders for Mr. Cooke's electiot
are fulfilled. Never before in the his
tory of the state, since the time oi
Altgeld. have we had a candidate whe
carried on such an energetic and sue
cessful campaign in Illinois, as haf
Lawrence H. Stringer, and this cam
paign work on his part bespeaks sue
cess for our ticket. Even in Cool
county the republicans are admitting
that we have an even show to elect
Stringer, and we will do if if every
voter of the ticket assists in getting
out the full vote."
With an earnest plea for the work n'
the entire democracy, and for united
I efforts, and discarding of personal dis-
iik s and ill feelings. Mr. Welch closed
be program of the evening.

COMPARE THE TWO
AND THEN DECIDE
Here is the difference between Allen
and Scott, the respective candidates
for the office of state's attorney:
Scott has been holding a public of
fice ever since he left school, first in
the postoffice, then as an attache of the
United States legation to Switzerland,
then and until now as city attorney,
and now he aspires to the ofiiee of
Allen in the meantime has been en
gaged in the careful and industrious
practice of the law in which he has
attained a reputation as among the
most conscientious at the Rock Island
county bar. He has never aspired to
any office, became the nominee for
county judge at the earnest solicitation
of his party and ran 1,400 votes ahead
of his ticket in the county: became
the candidate for state's attorney at
the call of the decent element of the
democratic party in the county, has
made nttie or no campaign in nis
own behalf, his only statement being
that if elected he would go into the
office without friends to reward or ene
mies to punish, and would conduct the
ofice entirely according to the dictates
of his conscience.
As to the volume of business that
either of the candidates enjoys individ
ually. The Argus does not propose to
discuss. From the indisputed expos
ures that have been made by Mr. Mc-
Caskrin, Mr. Scott has had some trans
actions that are not in the highest
sense creditable, to say nothing of the
etent to which he is politically bound
to John Looney.
It is up to the voters in whom the
responsibility reposes absolutely, to de
termine which of the two they want for
WHICH OF THE TWO

rclected will have influence and stand
ing with one of the great parties in the
Illinois legislature, who has conducted
his campaign along lines of decency
ai.d fairness to his opponents, and has
appealed simply to the calm judgment
of his own party, whose candidate he
is and whom he will he bound to serve
in ai! matters strictly political if elect
ed. Or. the man who has conducted his
campaign purely al nig the lines ot
abuse of his opponents, who while be
in? a republican has hesitated to admit
it lest he lose a few votes, who having
attacked the candidates of both polit
ical parties which will dominate' the
legislature will have no standing with

had been struck by his assailants. He
was lifted to his feet, and after some
effort was roused from his stupor, after
which he related the circumstances of
the robbery as b. st his memory serv
HobliiTv In ilir Motlvr.
That robbery was the motive was
indicated by the fact that . all the
money that the young man liad with
him, was taken from his pockets. He
did not know his assailants.
Detective Richard Carnes was as
signed to investigate the case. He
has learned, he states, that Clark
spent the evening in Davenport with
two young man friends from this side
of the river, and that they quarreled
during the return trip over the bridge.
The officer had been informed that
there was a woman at the bottom of
the difficulty, and that Clark stood
alone, having incurred the displeasure
of his two friends.

They parted company at the Twenty
fourth street viaduct. Clark coming
west on Third avenue to Twentieth

south on Twenty-fourth. While there
is no evidence to support such a theory
the officers suggest the possibility of
the other two boys having followed
Clark up and given him a beating.
