The Coming College Society Event.
That indefinable something that in
vests the doings of college boys with
a more than ordinary interest bespeaks
a full house at the Illinois theatre
Monday evening. Dec. IS, when the
curtain will ring up on the concert to
be given by the University of Illinoi
Glee and Mandolin club. In securing
this splendid musical organisation, now
in its 15th successful season, the Rock
Island Club has anticipated the wishes
of tri-city theatregoers. All the world
loves a college boy, and most of us
are interested in his pranks on the
campus, his achievements in the halls
of learning, his doings in the world of
athletic sports, and last, but not least.
'.n the songs he knows so well how to
sing. An up-to-date college without its
glee club would be like the play of
Hamlet with the melancholy Dane out
of the cast. The night of Dec. IS will
be distinctively an "Illinois night," and
not only the theatre, but also the Rock
Island Club, under whose auspices the
entertainment is given, will be decora
ted with the 1'niversity of Illinois
colors. The college boys will give -i
concert at Ottawa on their way here,
and in that city, as in Rock Island,
their visit is to be made a society
event of the season.

ed by Miss Irene May Larkin, reader;
Mrs. T. B. Reidy, soprano; and Miss
Mae Culton, accompanist. Miss Krie
witz has jnsi ompleted a tour of the
west, and given a number of concerts
enroute. Having formerly visited in
this city, the reception is given that
former acquaintances may again have
the pleasure of greeting her.

THE BEST RESULTS
Exposure of the Gang as a Result
of the Mayor's Predica
And Is Now Doing the Howling While
the Orderly Saloon Keeper Takes
His in Silence.
The best result, perhaps, that ha
come from the extremities to which
the boy mayor has gone in his desire
to avenge newspaper criticism, ha.-
been found in the awakening of tlu'
public to the marauding effect of the
vilest type of debauching element in
the community. It has oft been said
that when thieves fall out honest men
get their dues. The falling out of the
gamblers, grafters and confidence men
who have been preying on this com
munity for the past six months, in the
absence of a chief of police, led to the
exposure of the mayor's unfortunate
attitude that brought upon him just
and proper censure.
While it is to be both deprecated
and deplored that the mayor should
have failed to exercise discretion or
judgment, and that the man who con
ducts his business legitimately and
quietly anil under proper ri'gulations
should be made to suffer for the sins
of the gang that brought on the entire
trouble, there is a note of satisfaction
in the rout of an element of which the
city may be well rid. It is not the le
gitimate saloonkeeper who is doing the
howling now it is the gang.
e.nnc lliirl Only Ituclf.
And, notwithstanding that the repre
sentatives ef this element, those who1
live off its plunder, who share in its
traffic, who concoct Its schemes foe
revenge and have conspired to brin
down a terrible fate on the head of
the newspaper that has done its duty,
the public may rest assured that the
gang has done more harm to itself than
to the institutions that have offended
As for The Argus, it has the same
contempt for the threats of this ele
ment that it has for it as a class. The
Argus is proud of the manifest hostility
of the gang and its recognized
sponsor, and the more conspicuous
that hostility becomes, the better The
