BEAR GETS FIRST DEGREE
"Boney" Johnson Left Out in the Co'rt
World, and Deficit Left in the
A few dozen, republicans who had
been accorded the empty honor of ap
pointment as township delegates to
ratify the result of last Tuesday's
primaries, met at Turner hall last eve
ning, went through a few motions,
uncorked an assortment of whoop 'er
up oratory and adjourned.
So firmly had the idea of their own
lack of importance taken root that
they attempted nothing in the way of
original action. The ticket, which 'is
shy several constables, was not filled
out nor did the convention even adopt
th time honored motion to empower
the city township committee to take
such action. Also "Boney" Johnson's
aspirations to continue as justice even
if he can't be police magistrate were
cruelly ignored, though, mark you. the
committee ws- not instructed to leave
him off should there be a. vacancy.
City Chairman B. P. Knox called tho
gathering to order and was allowed t:
keep. his seat for, the evening. L. L.
Hance, when the curtain went up. was
discovered cozilyf' ensconced in ehargi
of the. archives, but the convention
chased him oil the .job: aniLsent Sam
Ryerson in his blace. Sam performed
his arduous duties without batting an
Cut Formalltip .Short.
After ' the call had been read all
monkeying with a list of delegates was
formally dispensed with, the names of
the triumphant ones in the township
primary were solemnly read off by B.
D. Connelly and duly endorsed. Then
Chairman Knox pulled the stopper out
and the flow of mutual admiration
and the flow of mutuaJ admiration start
ed. Mr. Knox, to begin with, allowed
that he had been in politics some him
self and he knew that unless this thing
of republicans going about with knives
up. their sleeves and hatchets for eacli
other in the bosoms of their shirt
waists is cut out the democrats., are
likely to run the whole bunch in April
C. 'On the other hand, if every repub
lican loves every other republican as
his brother, at least till after election
day there will be nothing to it.
Henry Carse, candidate for mayor,
was .beckoned to the high boards and
responded by saying that in a way the
nomination had been forced upon him,
but if elected he would. promise a
clean administration; that the factor
ies are beginning to work overtime
and wcj have an interurban headed
this way, but unless we have a clean
city administration we are Mkely to
lose the whole smear. In the appoint
ment of his assistants he would, if
elected be dominated by this idea of
making and keeping the city clean. S?
persistently did he refer to tne
stand the gaff, but after about 20 min
utes of we!l directed effort he had
dispelled at least part of it. The im
pression left with the audience was
that if he turns out as copious a
spender as he is a speaker he will do,
and the b'hoys will vote him a good
fellow, even though they fail to vote
him into office.
Clarence Schroeder, nominee for
police magistrate, "Sunny Jim" Witter,
candidate for city attorney, J. T. Nofv
sker. candidate for collector, John f.
Moeller, candidate for assessor, and
Martin Rudgren, candidate for ci'y
clerk, were called upon and each i:i
turn gave himself a boost by saying
it was the best ticket ever, etc.
The Orliclna! C'nrae Man.
By this time Fred Appelquist had
reached a stage, where he could con
tain himself no longer and butted inn
the speech making. It took him about
two seconds to let everybody knoy
that he was the original Carse man.
Henry Carse was as shy ..as a March
hare and never would have been cor
ralled to the everlasting glory And
honor of the republicans of Kock Is
land had not he (Applequist) camped
on his trail day and night, gotten out
petitions and finally filed them and
saved ( the day. Mr. Appelquist'3
language grew very picturesque in
spots and he seemed ot well sup
plied with it that the delegates decided
to make a little noise themselves and
kept it up till the speaker saw it was
no use and sat down. But it was not
for long, for after L. I Hance, sec
retary of the city township commit
tee, had been dragged out and made
his spiel. Mr. Appelquist got to going
again and was still at it when Chair
man Knox declared the meeting ad

served a nice lunch. Mrs. Sol Ivi
will be the hostess to 'the club next
. Since the first discussion of the fil
ler project, The Argus, in common
with the public generally, ha urgl
that whatever the council does, it
should go slowly in the matter, and pro
ceed cautiously and deliberately. This
advice, up to now, has been followed
to a reasonable degree, but it seems
paiticulaily proper in view of th?
opening of the bids Mouday night, to
again urge this course and particularly
since some of the bidders whose rep
resentatives are here seem solicitous
that the contract be speedily awardel.
The action of some of the represen
tatives who are already on the ground
and camped in Davenport has brought
out a discussion and general disap
proval of such a course. There1 ca.i
be no occasion now for rushing tin
filter project through.
No Xcel for HunI.
The council should follow the same
course in connection with tho bids a:;
was followed regarding the specifica
tions, and ample time given the public
to become familiar with the situation
as it .develops. There should be no
haste to get the contract awarded,
and no reason why any of the alder
men need be "worked" by any of tii).?e
who would like to install the filler. It
should bp remembered that the filter
plant is not to be purchased for the
mere sake of buying a filter, as was
lie case in the last pump purchas"
by the city, but because it is believe!
that a filter plain is needed.
It is not up to the council to make
haste, but to act Folely with the idea
of serving the best interests of the
city, and giving to Rock Island as good
a filter plant as can be secured and
at a reasonable cost.
The I.lKhtinK t 'onlrnot.'
In this connection it should be r
membored that the city is considering
a new lighting contract, and in this.
too, plenty of time should be taken,
and a contract as advantageous is
possible for the city should be secured.
As heretofore suggested, the terms
should be the same for Rock Island
and Moline. ' '

BAD AS DAVENPORT
Professor Ziv Discovers That Still
City Gets Very Little Revenue
Out of lis Resorts.
Professor Ziv,' who recently visited
Rock Island and gave this city a fair
Iy clean bill with respect to its ten
derloin resorts, is now at. Peoria mak
ing comparisons of that city '4with
Rock Island, Galesburg and Davenport
Peoria, he says, is about on a par with
Davenport, but gets uncommonly little
revenue out of its dives. Davenport,
he says, gets $'.M0 monthly out of each
of about a hundred scarlet women
while Rock Island has seven known
resorts with 39 inmates. Galesbiirg,
with no saloons,- is about in the same
class with Rock Island.
Clothing manufacturers them
selves order their suits from
the best merchant tailors. First
of all, because they know clothes
so well th at ready - mades
aren't good enough for them,
arid, secondly, because they
use their own suits as models
from which to copy ready-made
styles. This is an absolute
fact, and the tailors of the town
can prove it by showing you
their lists of clients. But mere
ly copying tailored clothes
doesn't reproduce them. First
of all, a manufacturer can't du
plicate the original in time to
sell it the same season that he
secured it, and, besides, his
tailor really planned the suit in
question to fit his own person
ality. Therefore, the man who buys
ready-made clothes is getting
out-of-date garments com
pared to the tailors standard,
and what is not up-to-date
doesn't belong on the back of
the up-to-date man. It has to
do for those who haven't iri
come enough or inclination
to be particular.

Mild weather is again having its ef
