HAD BETTER STICK
Democrats to Gain Nothing by
Participating in Republican
Side of Primary -
TO NEGLECT OF THEIR OWN
Besides Disfranchising Themselves
Thfy Would Only Jeopardize
Democrats should be on their guard
about being drawn into republican fac
tional fights in the primaries of Aug.
8. remembering that under the law,
the voting of the republican colors in
the primaries amounts to disfranchis
ing a democrat in his own party pri
maries for a period of two years. At.
least he is subject ,to challenge for
that time after if he deserts. The
democratic party needs all its mem
bers especially at a time when party
affairs in the country are in the har
monious promising condition that now
exists. Not only would any number
of democrats participating in the re
publican primaries deprive the party
of its strength when it is seeking to
regain the nomination for minority
representative, but if anything like an
even number of the party members
should be lined up, on opposite sides
of, say the republican state's attor
neyship fight,, it would amount1 to
nothing, and the loser would be the
party to whom these votes belong.
Hrttrr Help Out Party.
Instead of mixing in republican
squabbles, the democrats would do far
better to canvass the situation as to
minority representative in their own
party and consolidate the vote as far
as may be on the strongest and most
available Rock Island county candi-
ate. whoever he may be, and thus
bring the nomination back to this
Authorities Make Inquiry Into
Stories Relative to Death of
Boy by Drowning.
GIVEN LITTLE CREDENCE
Theory Generally Accepted as to Trag
edy in Davenport Is That Acci
dent Was the Cause.
Rufus King, a 9-year-old Davenport
ioy, was drowned Saturday atternooii
about. 4 o'clock in a stone quarry south
of the city on the Rockingham road.
The lad was in swimming with a num
ber of companions when the accident
occurred, and it lias not been clearly
settled yet just how the drowning was
brought about. Stories were started
at first saying that some of the com
panions of the boy had held him un
der the water until he strangled, and
others said that he had gone out Into
the deep water where It was so chilly
that it had given him a . cramp. The
stone quarry is 15 feet deep in some
places, and the water is very cold, as
comes from springs which flow
through the rocks.
Mother In Prontrat-l.
The quarries have always been a fa
vorite place for the small boys to swim.
and this is not the first death that has
been charged to them. The police re
covered the body about two hours af-
er the drowning, and it was removed
to the undertaker's, where an inquest
was held this afternoon. The police
had about 15 of the companions of the
lad, who were present at the time, and
uiey win investigate tne story in re
gard to the holding of the boy under
water thoroughly, although the older
this story gets the less it is believed.

Meeting at Barstow.
LOCAL MEN IN ATTENOANCi
Promoters Declare They Have 85 Per
Cent of Right of Way Needed

There was a largely attended inter
urban meeting at Barstow Saturday
evening, and the proposed Rock River
Traction company line connecting

cussed, and the proposition explained
by the promoters. Judge C. J. Searle,

W. Cole, secretary; J. S. Orendorft
and Senator W. W. Cole, all of Gene
seo. were present representing the
company, it was stated that the line
between. Geneseo and Rock Island is
tne keynote of the whole proposition,
and unless it can be built the entire
project will be dropped. It is pro
posed to cross the river at Cleveland,
and pass through Barstow, if the resi
dents there show .proper encourage
ment. The 100 miles of line will cost,
it is estimated, $1,800,000. .The road
is to be financed by the American
Engineering company of Indianapolis
en the basis of cost plus 10 per cent
The company Is to raise by popular
stock subscription $GOO,00. Princeton
is ready with $200,000, Sterling has an
other $200,000, Geneseo has $35,000
and more toward its $100,000 allot
ment, and another $100,000 is to be
distributed in the tri-cities. The pro
moters take up 49 per cent remaining.

Those present were enthusiastic

was appointed chairman of a commit
tee of five which he will name to in
vestigate the proposition. Fred Frells
and Frank Payne have been "named as
two members of the committee.
v Conference in Davenport.
An important conference which may
result in something tangible toward
the construction of the Rock Island
Southern line from Monmouth, and
Galesburg to Rock Island is being held
in Davenport today, and it appears
that an effort is being made to enlist
the Walsh interests in the company.
P. T. Walsh and Thomas Walsh are
out looking .over the proposed line.
There seems also to be something of
the terminal question involved in the
conference .and it is said that Gales-
burg has made a proposition with a
view to securing the terminal of the
trl-city line. A proposition to Mon
mouth has already been advanced.
