II I:; til .
Hon.- John P. McGoorty of Chicago,
candidate for, the democratic guber
natorial nomination, arrived iu Mo
line this morning and is spending the
afternoon there and at Campbell's is-,
land,.,, Aj A .o'clqclc this evening he
comeg t. Rockijsland and will spend
the evening at the Harper house,
-where he is anxious to meet Rock Is
land democrats and citizens generally.
.The reception tendered McGoorty will
be Entirely informal and ail are wel-
' come to meet him. Chairman W. C.
Maucfcer ' of the democratic county
committee extends, an invitation to all
.democrats and others to call on Mr.
McGoorty during the evening.
In n Prnnilarnt llllooiniuH.
i? Mr. McGoorty is. one of the leading
men of Illinois. ;lle has served many
years in the legislature, having been
part of the time minority leader on
the floor of the house and has always
taken a conspicuous position in the
legislation of the state. He is a bril
liant speaker; a genial, straightfor
ward citizen and a man whom it is a
pleasure to know.
The next governor of this state, is
oin'g to-be a democrat and the three
'formally announced candidates in the
field," J. f. : McGoorty, Douglas - Patti
Eon and J. Hamilton Lewis, are mak
ing an en'ergetfc campaign-in the state
for the nomination, but their plan of
campaign Is ' quite in contrast with
that with, which Governor C. S. De
Nneen'and exJoverhor Dick' Yates are
edifying the people. "There is no mud
bltnging and no personalities among
the 'democratic candidates. Each rec
ognize? " in the, others" the elements
of fitness that make a representative
candidate.' So that while each is earn
estly seeking to. win, he is not doing
it to the disparagement of his rival.
Am IiIpiiI CampnlKn.
Thi is the ideal way, to conduct a
preliminary canvass, for after it is
over, all. will be in a position to con
sistently pull together for the plucky
man. " ' . ' ' .'
Democrats of Rock Island should
do Mr, McGoorty the -honor to greet
him at the Harper house this evening.

in 'either case the identity of. tlie sender

Plated Tin Spoon3.
Here is one way of making spoons,
the process described being used In
the manufacture of one variety of ti:
In its original form the material
from which these spoons are m'lde
comes in long thin strips of steel rolled
to a uniform thickness. The strips are
twelve or fifteen feet in length and
of a T.idtu sufficient fcr the length of
the spoon tw be made. These strip:-"
are feU is. to a cutting machine, which
cuts off pieces, each of: sufficient size
for making a spoon, these being sim
ply so many small, flat pieces of sheet
steel. ' '
Then these blanks are put through a
grader, a machine with powerful rolls,
which so works the metal as to make
it thinner in those parts of the blank
that are to form the bowl and the
handle of the spoon and thicker in the
middle of the length of the blank
from which the Bhank of the spoon
will be made, so that it will be the bet
ter able to bear the bending strain that
will be put upon the spoon In nse.
From the grader the blank' goes Into
a;drop press, which cuts it into the
outline form of a spoon, though from
this press it comes out still flat.
Then in another press the bowl of
the spoon is formed, and then hi ptill
another " the. handle, and so at i last
ywi have the spoon in Its complel."

Differences of Port Byron Residents
in a Justice Court.
John P. Smith of Port Byron was
tried today in Justice J. H. Cleland's
court on the charge of assault with a
deadly weapon. Mrs. Mary Keely also
of Port Byron, was tne complainant.
It seems that the two are neighbors
and the trouble resulted from Mrs.
Keely, tying her cow to the fence
which separates the two homes. Smith
objected strenuously and attempted to
cut the. rope and free the cow and in
doing so his knife came in contact
with Mrs. Keely's hands, chitting them
somewhat. Justice Cleland bound
Smith over to the grand jury under
bonds of $200. . '

Ordinance Should Provide for Annexed

The city council Monday evening
will hold an adjourned session,
when one of the most importan mat
ters of the year will-be up for consid
eration. The council at this time will
consider the. annual appropriation or
dinance, and the allotment of the var
ious funds has been the subpect of
much consideration by the individual
aldermen,' and has kept Mayor Schaf-
t'er- and City Clerk Rudgren busy for
several weeks. Mr. Rudgren has com
pleted the report of the estimated
revenues for the year, on which the
appropriations are based, and this "w ill
be presented Monday evening...."
In New Territory.-'
There are. several matters that the
council is expected to. make provision
for in the ordinance,' and the resolu
tion accompanying.it. That pavin
and sewer improvements will have a
large part in te' distribution of the
tunas is a .certainty, it is also ex
pected .that money will be set aside
for at least preliminary work in tne
lelTitory in South Rock Island recent
iy annexed to the city. While South
Rock Island township is partially re
sponsible for the conditions there.
even since annexation, the city will
shoulder the burden, and it is thought
that the first steps will be taken in the
appropriations for this year.

The residents of the Sixth and Sev
enth wards are deeply interested in tae
allottment of funds, because of the
fact that in both wards big sewer and
drainage systems have been projected
and the preliminaries are under way,
and also becaues of the need of pro
vision for better fire protection in the
eastern part of the city. For several
years plans have been under consider
ation for adding a new fire department
company on the hill in the Seventh
ward, and returning the No. 3 com
pany to its old iuarters on Twenty-
sixth street near Seventh avenue. A
new hose house on Twelfth street near
Twelfth avenue, has also been pro
posed, as a means of providing better
protection for thq newer residence dis

The belt is filledjwith the regular num
