THE ARGUS. SATURDAY, JULY 28, 190C.
THE DANGER IN INDIFFERENCE
DESPITE PRIMARY LAW SAFEGUARDS
Democrats Have Much at Stake In Choosing of Candidates for
the Legislature and Likewise for Sheriff Should
be Alert to Conditions.
The safe guards, such as there are in
the new primary law, which, while
eliminating, or at least minimizing, tha
oppomiuitits fo p -iitical jobbery ami
cn-ruption. and tLus contributing to
tT.e pu'ifyiut; of ihe ballot should not
be taken as removing occasion for con
cern in the minds of those who beliee
in legitimate party primaries.
In ether w.nls representative demo
crats s-IiouM T.ot rest in the thought
tat un1cr the circumstances their sole
cb'.igation to I'-.eir party is discharged
whf-n th-y ?:o to the polls and cast
their Lallcts toi their choice.
As a uiaiicr of fact there is a sur
prising prevalence of apathy in both
the republican and the democratic
parties in view of the primaries to be
held one week from to:!ay. And yt
there are vital contests on in 'oih
parties. In the democratic party there
are two candidates for the democratic
minority legislative nomination in J. G.
Button and Jaliu I.ooiicy, and in th?
contest for sheriff in Cornelius Dono
a and Peter Schlueter. In both in
stances the issue involves not only the
question of the choice of candidates for
the respective offices, but the control
of the senatorial committee and the
It is for the democratic voters of
Rock Island county to express them
selves on the strength of the candidates
who ask recognition at the hands of the
Absolute harmony, so far as The Ar
gus knows, prevails in the party
throughout the county. The way to
keep it in such a condition is to keep
discordant influences out. And the
only way to accomplish that'end is to
be alert. There Is no doubt as to how
the majority of the democrats stand.
The primary law, regardless of what
assurances it may offer In the way of
decently conducted primary elections,
will be of little avail if the party is in
different to its own welfare." It Is al
ways at such times when the members
of any political organization are off
their guard that disrupting elements
seize control. It is the element that
allies itself with both political parties
and uses both as subjects for barter
and sale that is most to be despised
and opposed in both parties.
The democrats have an important
duty to perform in next Saturday's
primaries. They are confronted with
the obligation of selecting a candidate
for the legislature, with whom they
may go before the senatorial conven
tion demanding the recognition that is
due the dominant county in the dis
trict. and back of whom the whole
force of the party may stand unaui
mously without a blush and ask con
In the nomination of a candidate for
sheriff, the party can afford to make
no mistake. The right kind of a man
will stand the best show of winning
that has been offered the party in
years. Indeed, the election of a demo
cratic sheriff is now conceded by many
republicans provided the party
It is well for the democrats of the
county to consider all these facts, and
not only do their own duty one week
from today, but see that the:r neigh
bors do theirs.
PARKER PRESENTS CULLOM SIDE OF
THAT BALLOT PRINTING PROPOSITION
John W. Parker, ex-Yates leader, ex
president of the Illinois League of Re
publican Clubs, and ex-chief clerk at
the Western Hospital for the Insane,

campaign in Rock Island county, tells

afternoon. auroios of the expense of
f'The facts," said Mr. Parker., "are
simply these: The Cullom forces de
sired a clear-cut contest with the Yates
followers, covering state, congressional
and senatorial delegates. The only
way for both sides to secure this was
by liaviug rival delegations to the
three conventions named, but these
delegations would have to be attached
to lists of county delegates in which
the Cullom people have not the slight

"Before presenting this plan, the at

Cullom people and their only expecta

HARD SHOWERS STRIKE CITY
Afterncon Rain Floods Streets Light
ning Stuns Several.
Two of the hardest showers of the
season struck the city this afternoon,
both being accompanied by an electri
cal display, and severe wind. The
streeU were flooded for a short time,
but the damage was limited to wash
ing dirt down from the hills. Precau
tion was taken at the Tri-City power
plant to shut off circuits during the
most severe l'ghtning. Street car lines
experienced some trouble.
A bolt of lightn'ng this afternoon
shattered a tree on the edge of Long
view park, near Seventeenth avenue
and Fifteenth street. Mrs. E. A. Mil
ler, residing nearby, was slightly burn
ed from the stroke, and others were
stunned for a few minutes.

Commauder Buck's escort will be
composed of men averaging C5 years
In age. The men will wear blue sult3,
white caps, with blue and gold trim
mings for the officers and plain gold
for the privates, and gaiters. A martial
band will be included in the escort
One of the members will be Lester
