If the sun shines tomorrow, there
will be smiles on the faces of the
Island City fans, during the entire
afternoon, and also on the faces of
the Davenport fans for part of the af
ternoon at least. The occasion for the
broad grins will be the game which
will be played by the teams from
Davenport and Rock Island and it
will be the first time the two teams
have met in three years, as Davenport
has been compelled to sit out in the
cold as far as the baseball world is
concerned for two seasons during
which time they could look across the
river and see Rock Island playing.
Getting back into the game again
will bring grins of delight to the Dav-
enporters as they come into Island
City park tomorrow afternoon, but
Jack Tighe promises that the smiles
will all be in possession of the Rock
Island fans when the game is over.
The game will start promptly at 3
o'clock and it is expected that there

The circus has not been as successful
financially this year as in the past,
not because of any lack of work on
the part of the managers of the circus,
but rather because there has been a

the public. It may be that . the price

HE voters of this Judicial Circuit

the qualifications of the Judges
to be nominated and elected this spring.
The matter is of too much importance to
every resident of the district to be light
ly passed over. "
The ability, character and habits of
the candidates for" this" office shoutd" be
carefully looked into, and, to a great ex
tent, tho voter will be governed in his
choice for the three- Judges by tho past
records of the candidates.
I want every Republican to make a
thorough investigation of me, and what
I have done as a practising attorney and
is City Attorney of Moline, for I realize
"ully that the men to be nominated- and
.'loctt'd must bo men whoso characters
and abilities will stand the most rigid
scrutiny. They must possess the legaf .
qualifications to fill such an important
office. ' ?
I have been City Attorney of Moline
for four years and have filled that pos
ition to the entire -satisfaction of the
people. During that time I have ob
tained in every personal injury suit a

tion against the Central Union Tele
