A Kansas City grocer sold imita

handed him a real one.
"Why does a man lie to his wife?"
asks a writer. Because he knows no
one else would believe him.
Boost for Rock Island. It is a good
deal better and more satisfactory to
build up than to tear down.
Speaker Cannon says he has de
clined to be a candidate f6r the presi
dency fifteen times. A sort of a six-teen-to-one
candidate, as it were.
President Roosevelt seems to have
put the lid on over the ambition of
Reformer Hughes to he the nominee
if the republican party for president.
Will the great fight of ISSi'i be dupli
cated and the Roosevelt-Taft cohorts
go down as the celebrated (Irant le

litld was nominated?
Tin? political upheaval in Japan is
due to finance, reports a dispatch from
Tokio. Yes, and a political upheaval
is due here if the republicans don't
produce a new stock of prosperity.
The St. Lous Republic arises to the
occasion with the remark: '"If the
motto Is restored to the coin it will
be because congress knows that the
country needs something better than
the republican party to trust in."
The Spirit of Annexation.
There has been no occasion for hard
feelings developing in South Rock Is
land over the proposition looking to
annexation of a part of the territory
to the city of Rock Island. There
has been no kidnaping process at
tempted, no undercover tactics em
ployed and no disposition evinced to
act other than with the full knowledge
and consent of all concerned. Peopli
have a right to differ on all questions
of public policy. Thoy have a right
to express their opinions and tal.p
their position and adhere to it. But
nothing has arisen to give excuse for
a spirit of hatred and false accusation
toward Rock Island.
It is much easier to obstruct tha
to construct, to tear down than to
build up, but it is better to boost than
to knock, and sooner or later the ele
ment in South Rock Island that seeks
to go ahead, will win.
All there is to the proposition is
that Rock Island wants to grow, and
it wants its territorial lines extended
as far as the good people of the terri
tory immediately contiguous will per
mit them to go. Prompted by publi.
and progressive spirit and the most
kindly of feelings toward its neighbors
Rock Island welcomes all to come
among us and be a part of a common
municipality. If they do not want to
accept of the invitation, and if any
considerable portion of the people em
braced in the territory discountenance
the act of their own community in
asking for admission, no one is going
io try force.
The heartiest measure of encourage
ment goes out from Rock Island to
the progressive citizens who have
enlisted themselves in the proposition,
and even if the territory that may seek
admission should not he as large a?
hoped for, all who come will be wel
come, and the others will bo treated
with equal cordialitv. under similar
circumstances, at another time.
Purity and Patronage.
Tho president is not using his pat
ronage In the interest of Taff. He
Fays so himself. Anyone who says he
is is a "liar"; he also says that him
self. . It is true that four men who
had been supporting Foraker in
Ohio flopped to Taft and were prompt
ly nominated to be postmasters, but if
any man saj-s the president is using
his patronage in Taft's interest he is
an "undesirable" citizen, a traitor and
a poltroon. Six federal officeholders
are in the New York county committee,
and they supported Congressman Par
sons and Bennett in postponing a res
olution for the indorsement "of Gover
nor Hughes; but if any man says the
president is using the power of pat
ronage against ' the governor he is
"scurillous, vain, vindictive, disloyal"
and other'things too numerous to men
At present the president is only say
ing those thingsprlvately to people
K T R A 0 E SI i dc I
who can be depended on lo leave them
around in the vicinity of newspaper
row. But thj? tide of presidential
wrath is rising rapidly, and it is inti
mated that if a few more persons re
peat the story that patronage is being
used in the Taft interest the dam will
t,ive way and a desolating flood of pres
idential vituperation jsvill burst forth
and flow down the valley, overwhelm
ing the miscreants.
By way of refutation it is pointed
out that a prominent federal official
in Indiana is heartily supporting the
Fairbanks boom. Why not? No one
supposes Mr. Fairbanks can be nomin
ated; Illinois and Wisconsin and Iowa
are going to have favorite sons in the
field, and the more there are of them
the easier it will be for Taft to win.
But Taft has got to. have the Ohio del
egation, and Hughes must not have the
New York delegation. That is plain
enough. That is Vhere the federal
officeholders are working for Taft.
An Indiana delegation for Fairbanks
will add vtry much in offsetting the in
fluence of an Illinois delegation for
Cannon. It wouldn't do to have the
thing too unanimous anyway.
TAKES A POSITION
AGAINST DRY TOWN
Argument Raised as to Effect of Pro
hibition Under Local
Rock Island, Jan. 29. Editor The
Argus: Referring to an article in yes
terday's issue of your paper relative
to the proposed submission to the legal
voters of the city of Rock Island of
the question as io whether this city
should be made anti-saloon territory.
l desire to make a few suggestions
which may be worthy of consideration.
In the first place, it seems to me that
the conditions of the liquor traffic in
the city as they exist at. the present
lime do not cah for any change as a
matter of necessity, at least not for
such a radical change as is contem
plated by those who favor an affirma
tive answer to this question. The con
ditions lure are greatly exaggerated
by the opponents of the liquor traffic
As a rule, our saloons are conducted
properly and do not give sufficient rea
sons for such serious complaints as to
necessitate the entire abolition of the
business, except in the minds of those
who either have a personal interest in
a continuation of the agitation against
the liquor traffic, or who wish to in
dulge in this ngitttion as in a spirit
which originate;! in a very narrow-
minded consideration of human affairs
and the relations between men. j
There may be some Occurrences in
cident to the business which are ob
jectionable, but there are many other
pursuits and occupations which are
sources of evil, which have their
cause, not so much in these pursuits
themselves, but. in their abuse and the
frailty of human nature, in human pas
sions, as greed and avarice. But even
such matter can easily be remedied
by a proper enforcement of laws ami
ordinances and a strict police control
and supervision. Absolute extinction
has never been conducive of a desired
On the other hand, look at the re
sults of such Agitation. It is conducive
of strife in the community, of setting
men and citizens against each other
who have lived, and would were it not
for this agitation, always live in peace
and ha rmo ny. I understand that, in
the endeavor to obtain the necessary
signatures to this petition, some can
vassers use the argument that the
signing of the petition would not oblige
those signers to vote for the proposi
tion. If this does not impose an obli
gation, at least a moral obligation, to
favor the proposition by vote later on.
why induce the voters to assist the
proposition in the first instance?
Again, this petition is a public doc
ument, open to the inspection and
scrutiny of any citizen. Does any one
believe that those who are interested
in the other side of the question will

who may be found to participate in !
causing loss, injury and damage to
them? And will not this very discov-
fry cause ill-feeling ampng men
whose relations otherwise would'
be.'ajl that may De desired? Whatever
the result may be, this agitation must !
be conducive of a serious disturbance
of whatever relations have so far, ex-,
isted between the different elements,
Of this community.
Again, consider for a moment the '
material result of the carrying of the:
proposition. Thousands of dollars
worth of property would be render
useless and indirectly destroyed; mm-
dreds of people would lose their means
of support; many business pursuits,
now depending largely upon the saloon
business for income and revenue.
would be largely injured and hamper
ed; a large amount would be with
drawn from the exchequer of the city.
which, heaven knows, needs every dol
lar of revenue to defray the expenses
of the administration.
Thanking you for your indulgence,
I am yours, respectfully,
A TAXPAYER AND LEGAL VOTER.

Just here PrisciUa's rapid little mon

She suddenly remembered that she
had come to the end of her directions.
For the sixth time she was about to

bright blue sign of "Female Help"
flaunting iteelf down a side street
caught ber eye.

ward It, which ended in an iguomini
ous collision with a corner newsstand.
When both had regained their equilib
rium. Priscilla. giving her fur boa a
careless toss over her shoulder, started
a second time toward the garish sym
bol of her hopes.
This time a plaintive little wail re
strained her. Where did it come from?
There was not a child in sight. She
walked a step or- two in the direction
of the sound, and there, curled up un
der the shelter of a newsstand, was
a mite of humanity, blue and pinched
with the cold.
"Why. you poor dear!" exclaimed
Priscilla. "Wheit) is your mother? Are

Priscilla looked about perplexed.
Seeing a shopkeeper watching her cu

she asked almost-itcusiugly.
"Shure." replied the shopkeeper. "He

A Misleading Poll.
The Washington Post and the New

country with polls of the members of
the house of representatives as to their
presidential preferences. Nothing has
so long and ,so thoroughly been dis
credited in polities as a poll iu which
names are not mentioned. The aver

"Where does he live?" demanded
The man pointed to a dingy looking
tenement house next door tp the em
ployment ofiice. To his utter amaze
ment. Priscilla tooped down, gathered
the whining waif In her arms, wrap
ped her fur boa around him and walk
ed toward the house w ith her burden.
From the curious tenants she soon
found out which particular door led
into the child's home. The key was
hanging in a dark corner near by.
Once inside. Priscilla laid the child
down on a broken, disorderly bed and
then shivered as she stood helpless In
the gloom and chill of the place.
There was neither fire, fuel nor food.
Priscilla knelt dowu beside the child
and chafed his little cold hands till
there was some degree of warmth in
them. Then she summoned up her
courage, knocked at the door of the
adjoining Hat and begged the woman
who answered to take the child in be
side ber lire while she herself went
out to get food for him.
She had just returned with her arms
full of bundles when she bumped into
a man in the dark hallway equally
incumbered. An avalanche of paper
"I beg your pardon," came simul
taneously from both.
Then as they stooped to the task of
picking up their respective lelougings
the man ventured an inquiry.
"Can you tell me where the Ilorri
gans live, I wonder?"
"I haven't the least idea," replied
Priscilla. "I'm a stranger here my
self." The commotion had caused the sud
den apparition of several toiTsled head:-.
from behind half opened doors. l?j
the dim light that flickered out Pris
cilla stole an Inquisitive look at the
man beside her.
"Gerald Hollister!" she exclaimed
excitedly and in her amazement drop
ped all her paper bags again.
"Priscilla Ballad!" he exclaimed, and
his paper bags followed PrisciUa's.
It is quite probable had not the
squeaking doors stretched their curios
ity a bit toy far that Priscilla and Ger
aid would have spent the rest of the
morning dropping and picking up par
cels. But Priscilla. catching sight of
the woman in whose care she had left
her little charge, rushert past her. grab
bed up the child and commanded Ger
ald to follow her.
Imagine Mrs. Horrigan's surprise a
half hour or so later, when she came
in from her day's cleaning, to find
seated by a crackling hot stove, with
little Jim in her arms, an "illigant giu
tleman wid a fur coat at the back iv
im, and. more thau that, shtandin'
near Mm, shtirring gruel as if her life
depended on it, a lienutiful young lady
with cheeks glowin like roses."
The woman listened like one spell
bound to the explanations that follow
ed, only half comprehending how it
was that a gentleman who had Itecome
interested in little Jim from buying pa
pers of him night and morning should
for that reason be now holding the
child In his arms "f'r all the wor-rld."
as she afterward told the neighbors,
"as if he was Jim's father that's dead,
bless his sowl." Nor was PrisciUa's
bitterly opposed to Mr. Bf.vtn, wen
able to find fifty-three members, names
not given, who divided their vote
among several other candidates. Mr.
Bryan, of course, however, had more
than a two-thirds majority of all the
Democratic memlters. While not at
taching much significance to polls. I

Tho Next Secretary of the Interior
Of all the states or territories of the
Union the new -state of Oklahoma
brings the most business to the interior
department. In time doubtless it will
be rivaled by the great territory of
Alaska, which has wonderful natural
resources, but today Oklahoma leads all.
A strong effort is being made by the
people of the state, irrespective of par
ty, to develop sentiment in both parties
to appoint some Oklahoman secretary
of the interior. There is scarcely
doubt that the state will go heavily
Democratic in the next election. But
even so and should the nation be1 lost
to the Democrats the claim of the ma
terial interests of the state for repre
seutation in the interior department
would be a just and a strong one.
Mr. Clarence II. Douglas, owner of the
Muskogee Phoenix, a Republican pa
per, is pushing this movement strong
ly. Mr. Douglas, who was the Be
publican caucus nominee against Sena
tor Gore, is fighting the present pur
pose of the Republican party of the
state to send to Chicago a delegutlon
instructed for Roosevelt. His argu
me"t is that to enforce any candidate
upon the delegation would greatly In
jure the prospects of securing a prom
Ise, or possibly even the Insertion of a
plank In the platform declaring for
an Oklahoma secretary of the Interior
would be very remote.
