GRAFF "BUTTED IN"
Argus Correspondent Finds Peo
ria Congressman Endorsed Buck
for Local Postoffice.
AND M'KINNEY IS INDIGNANT
Singular Similarity of Situation Relat
ing Both to Rock Island and
Washington, D. C, Jan. 19. (Special
to The Argus). The fight over the
postmastership at Rock Island has
brought to light a remarkable condi
tion of affairs and establishes a prece
dent in the violation of political ethics.
Representative McKinney fearing the
merit system order of the postmaster
general has so far declined to endorse
any candidate for the Rock Island of
fice. Gruff "Hutted lu."
In the meantime Representative
Graff of Peoria steps in and endorses
E. H. Buck. I cannot recall another
instance where one member of con
grcss has deliberately "butted In" on
the patronage of another member, and
when I informed Mr. McKinney today
that Graff is behind the Buck candi
dacy, he threw up his hands and de
manded. "By what right! Surely there
must be some mistake."
Mt-Kiunry Told of ItecorriN on File.
He was assured that Mr. Graff's re
commendation is on file at the postof
fice department, whereupon he declar
ed he would make an investigation at
"Graff lias trouble enough of his
own," said Representative McKinney,
"without trying to make appointments
in my district." Saying which he
grabbed his hat and made a hasty exit
presumably for the office of the post
Mr. Graff cannot be found. He has
not been on the floor of the house this
week, but the records stand against
UlniHtril n linny Man.
R. V. Olmsted has been very busy
during the last few days pulling the
wires that lend to the throne, but he
has failed so far to get McKinney's en
Moline Situation luntiiiil.
The same situation that applies to
Rock Island under the merit system
exists with refrence to the Moline post-
office. The present incumbent appears
to have an excellent record and Mc
Kinney positively refuses to make an
endorsement for either office until he
knows whether or not the present post
masters will be retained under the
merit system. CLUM.

SKATING ON THE PAVEMENT
Ice in Streets Affords Sport for the
Boys skating up Second avenue and
on numerous other streets could be
seen today after the storm of sleet and
rain, which added to the" coat of ice
that had covered pavement and walks.
While such a condition Is found at
some time nearly every winter, it is
seldom that it continues so long as it
has this week. The usual number of
accidents have been recorded as a re
sult of the ice on the walks, some quite
serious and some of minor importance.
