ORDINARY KIND OF CLOTHES
JUST THE KIND YOU WANT,
ALL IN COMBINE?
That is What Some Aldermen
Now Think of Pump
WINNER WAS CERTAINLY NEXT
Disadvantage of Limitation of Adver
tising Is Further Illustra
ted. Regardless of every consideration of
worth and price so far as the success
ful bidder in the pump deal is concern
ed, the more the aldermen who kept
themselves clear of the combine, reflect
the more do they become convinced
that the pump that won was "it." so to
spt-an, irom the tlrst. . .
Indeed the quPSTTon thalls entering
he minds of some is if there really
was any competition amone the bidders
that were permitted to submit propo
sitions. After the exclusivtness that
was thrown about' the opportunity to
biu. and the paring down process had
Deen gone through with, there remain
ed but three pumps btfore the council
for consideration. The reoresentativ
of one of these had for some reason de
serted before the final vote came. This
left practically but two pumps before
tne council when the time for action
was reached, and one of these had not
been seriously considered in a eeneral
sens.?. The aldermen, therefore, who
voted negatively on the proposition to
close the deal with the successful bill
der, tecorded themselves more against
the nature of the transaction than in
opposition to the pump that was select
ed, it. as has been suspected, the few
remaining bidders were in reality in a
combine, the reason is all the more
dear that the city should in the first
place have widened the scope of oppor
tunities to bid sufficiently to admin ol
many more bids than were actually
Horn Bni-k Some Tim.
The whole matter therefore goes
back to the time the city originally
took up consideration of the pump pur
chase question. As is known the city
some time ago adopted the wise policy
of laying aside each year a certain
amount to go exclusively into the wa
terworks fund, to be applied, when
time should warrant, on the purchase
of a new pump, it being realized that
in the natural course of events such
an emergency would have to be met.
Through some means, the a'.ert repre
seuta'lve of the successful concern
has known ail along every move that
has been made in the direction of the
pump purchase, and has made frpouent
vitdts here. In a word he baa beea
what the contractors term "nursing"
the Rock Island job. Pretty good evi
dence of how well he was acquainted
with what it was projos.td to expend
here, was given by one of the alder
men quoted on the pump deal in yes
urday's Argus, who remarked that the
fund to be spent was f L'o.noo. and that
the successful concern's bid was iust
$2 :. That is what might be termed
just getting inside the nionev." And
in this is afforded stnncth to the art;ii-
riient of another abb rman for readver
tising. "If we had advertised again
and given out the impression that we
were only going to sinnd $2U.(iim. the
lowest bid might have hern $19,0!'mi."
said the alderman.
Kor It I ri.in tbr Flrxt.
As is known, a few of the aldermen
were uncompromisingly for the Snow
pump from the first. It may be that the
Snow is the only one on the the mar
ket that fits the ntcuiiar rentiirftiient s
of the city of Rock Island, apart from
the fact that in bidding it had ground
floor advantages that put it below a'J
other bidders and yet pretty close up
to the amount that it was promised to
expend. As has been repeatedly said,
the pump that filled the bill in require
ments and price, and had loyal friends
who were willing to go the limit for it
from the first did not need to resort to
outside influences to make good. The
fact that it had the lowest bid. and that
it was just what was wanted, if such
was the case, possessed sufficient
merit to command the support that it
was entitled to. It was the fact that it
did not seem content to stand on its
own bottom that aroused the indigna
tion of some of the aldermen, one of
w hom, as referred to yesterday, came to
The Argus to express his condemna
tion of what he said he knew was be
ing done in its behalf. It should be
said, however, this same alderman
rushed into the combine line-up in time
for 11th hour repentance.

These are the things together with
the haste exhibited in closing up the
deal without permitting a readvertising
that might have brought lower bids
without serious loss of time, that gives

REVENUE LAW IS
People cf Lower End of County Hold
Men Prosecuted at Peoria
The Reynolds Press is disposed to
criticize the manner in which the rev
enue law is being construed in the
prosecution of the four men from the
lower end of the county who are con
fined in the federal prison at Peoria for
tiling, perhaps unwittingly, an alco
holic beverage represented as a harm
less summer drink. Says the Press:
'Probably 95 per cent of the people
if Reynolds and Taylor Ridge are ex
pressing their sincere sympathy for the
tour men at present confined like dan
terous criminals in a federal prison in
Peoria. And many of those who are
fully acquainted with the circumstan
ces connected with the matter are not
x bit backward in voicing a very
healthy contempt for the court that
has seen fit to inflict a sentence so se
vere upon men morally innocent of any
wrongful deed. Incidents like these
end to lessen the respect that all good
men try to have fwr so called law and
