"We do not want a clown to sit i.i

ry C. Schaffer will not turn hand
springs on the stage nor undress him
self in public." ":; "We want t
mayor who will not pull our legs but
that is too personal and I'll not spe-ik
of it further. We need a mayor who
will appoint policemen, who will not. -1-low
burglars to drive through the al
leys with wagons and carry off on
property." Hon. William Jackson,
piesidetit of the park loard.
".McCaskrin dues not know his own
mind. He agitates big questions with
out any aim and without bringing them
to a definite conclusion. That brings
no results and no improvement, lint
serves to encourage the most disturb
ing elements in the city." H. A. Wel l.
"There are l.-'no democrats in the
city who owe no allegiance to any pir
ty candidate for mayor. They will b"
the balance of power in the election.
We appeal to them and invite them o
support Mr. Schaffer." "Vole so tint

"It is humiliating to admit, but Hock
Island Is not keeping pace with th"
advance of the common country. It
shows conditions here are wrong. Men
with money to invest would be bigg r
idiots than your mayor if they cam"
here with conditions as they are. and
the city controlled by a man subject o
the most low down and miserable bevy
of blackmailers, the lowest specimens
of humanity, that ever infested a com
munity in the Mississippi valley." - ;
We want a man with a balance who"l
in his head." "We want a man as
mayor who will pay his debts." "We
do not want a mayor who says 'tho
public de damned' when the public dis
agrees with him." "We do not want a
mayor who is liable to get mad. grab
his hat and handkerchief, and with all
his worldly possessions get out of town
over night." Charles .1. Searle.
"If elected mayor I will make good.'
Henrv C. Schaffer.
Mavor McCaskrin was correctly
characterized and caricatured last ew
ning by republican speakers at the 111:
nois theater. He was one of thos
piesent. and it is said that, as he heard
the applause brought forth by condem
nation of him as an official, he drew
further back in the inconspicuous part
ef the house in which he had seated
himself. A more perfect characterize
tion of the mayor's platform antics
which have brought humiliation and
ridicule to every citizen, than that giv
en by Hon. William Jackson, president
of the park hoard, who presided at tho
meeting, could not be presented. M
Jackson began by referring to the
birth of the republican party, in whio'
he had a part in Moline, and then led
up to local conditions. "I've bec.i
ashamed of what I have seen in th
council chamber of the city of Hocl
Island in the last two years," he said
and added, "we want, a mayor who w'tl
' work honestly and dignifledly for th"
city. We do not want a clown to si
in the mayors chair.' He said that a
man once truthfully stated that a
search of the Illinois laws revealed r.
law "to prevent a man's making a
fool of himseir." but that tint1
man has no right to bring ridicule on
those he represents, as Is the case of
the mayor. "Hundreds of citizens have
been abased by the conduct of the
chief executive of that city." Ho
told of witnessing one of the mayor's
characteristic disrobing acts on the
square, and to cmphasfzo the disgust
if such a spectacle, ho gave an imit-i-tion
of It, quoting a few of the mayor's
brazen remarks on such occasions. IP.?
.imitation was effective.
Mr. Jackson said he had seen the
mayor go through such antics but once,
but the remembrance and humiliation
of it would last a life time.
(l l,rg I'lllllioc.
"We want a mayor who will not puU
our legs," he said, and then briefly re
ferred to that insulting statement of
the mayor's in regard to the park
board. Mr. Jackson did not enter into
a discussion of this phase of the paik
board matter, however, holding it as
too personal for his discussion. He
did, however, explain something of nio
interference of the mayor with the
board in its plans for Iong View park,
lie told of the pleading of McCaskn:i
to secure himself and F. C. Denkmann
to take charge of the park systems
and said that not one of the members
of that board would allow himself
to be made a tool of by McCaskrin, but
had consented to act on the boa.d
from a sincere interest in the pane
work. He explained the plans made
by the board, and of the- mayor's In
terference by starting out with a
when thousands were required, and
when the board had made plans to se i
cure those necessary thousands. Mi. J

of the city, and as indicating the dwarf
character of the man who would bring
ridicule on the city for his own person

remarks by the reference to the R-e'i
nett robbery, and introduced H. .
Weld, as the first speaker of the pro
Mr. Weld opened his remarks by a
logical discussion of political organ
ization. He said that he asked nothing
for the republican ticket for the reason
that it is nominated by the republicans.
and insisted that nothing should bo
laid against the ticket for that reason
He devoted some time to a discus
sion of the characterization of McCask
tin by a circular letter issued yesto;-
day by the Ciiizens' Xem-Partisan asso
nation, and enlarged on the charge n
the letter that McCaskrin is an agitn
tor. He declared the mayor an agitator
because he carried the questions V-
hates to no end. "He (the mayor I
tore up the railway tracks. Why di i
he do it? He had the slot machines re
moved. Why did he not follow it up?
He closed the saloons on Sundavs for
time. We do not condemn him for
that, but if it was right to close them,
why was it not right to keep them
closed and to follow up his move?"
If yon know McCaskrin, as yon
must, and are not convinced that ho is
far from the ideal mayor, there is no
use in arguing the matter with yo i.
The only thing to do is to outvote you.
and we propose to do that." he sai.l.
Referring to the Citizens' Non-Partisan
association, ho expressed himself ns
having nothing against its principles,
but feared that that association might
bring about the very thing it was or
ganized to prevent the continuation
of McCaskrinism. "The city has noth
ing to fear from the election of Janus
McXamara." he said.
He concluded his address with an
appeal for the support of Mr. Schaffer.
md a brief reference to other candi
lates of the republican ticket. He de
nied the report that Martin Rndgr-n
is making an alliance, with McCaskrin
in the west end of the city. He said
that if James Witter is elected their
will be no necessity to appropriate $t.-
mio for special altornev's fees
Mr. Wel.l was followed by H. W.
Olmsted, who sioke briefly only in tin
Interests of his own candidaev.
State's Attorney Scott, who was the
next speaker, made an appeal for the
support of Mr. Schaffer. He urg"l
that the city clerk has been faithful to
the city's interests, and quoted M:
Schaffer's frequent remark when th.'1
council proposed an irregular or tin pro
vided for expenditure, "I won't sign
a voucher unless it is regular and the
city has tho money."

PHASES OF THE CAMPAIGN
FOR COUNTY JUDGESHIP
ROBERT R. REYNOLDS, DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE, WRITES MANLY
LETTER TO VOTERS OF COUNTY, PRESENTING THE
The following letter was sent out to- my efforts to the
day to voters throughout the county.
by Robert R. Reynolds, democratic
nominee for county judge:
Rock Island, 111., March "0. Dear
Sir: I desire to call your attention to
the fact that, at tho general election on tied
Tuesday next you will be called upon
to select a successor to the late Judge
I'arrnenter, and to remind yon that !
:itn a candidate for that office.
I solicit your support, not in a po
litical way, for I believe that tho juili-'
cial officers in this county should bo
ibsolutoly fair and unbiased and under
no obligation to repay political or ofh-
niiin of humble means
rather than to the wealthy corporations
of tho community, and while I believe
that the influential corporations are
entitled to fair and impartial treatment
from every court, I am unalterably op
posed to the idea that they are enti-
to special favors. While I am a
candidate selected by tho democraiic
party, I have never been identified wil'i
any of the factions of that par'y. I
have never been a strong faction man.
and if elected, I shall endeavor to rep
resent the people of this county fairly
and honestly without regard to party
affiliations. In this connection I wish
to call your attention lo the letter you

priva'ely in his official capacity, nor
say "the public be damned"Mn pubii"
when informed that public opinion dif
fers with his opinion.
He held that patriotic citizens do not
want in office a bag of hot air, a man
not honest in his ordinary business af
fairs, whose official acts were done noi
fiom a sense of duty, but from a sense
of political effect, a man who does n '.
know his own mind, one who goes t )

then to the opposing elemcnls to win
their support, and a man witli notiiin

fifteen years at the bar has taught me
that when a judicial candidate allews
himself to become tew closely affiliated

lessens his usefulness as a judge.
