The time In the circuit court this
week will be given over to the hearing
of civil cases. It was not expected to

their cases and the court will be kept
busy. The cases docketed for trial are
mostly suits for the recovery of small
amounts on notes and the like.

TARIFF LAW PURE HUMBUG
(Continued from Page One.)
in the city of Ties Moines, both speech
es being upon the subject of the tar
iff, a subject which will not down at
any man's bidding, and which, like the
poor, we have with us always.
Word for DoIIIvrr.
, "Nobody appointed me to defend
Senator Dolliver. This much, how
ever, I will say for' him. I have for
years regarded him as the greatest
orator in the republican party. I
would travel far to hear a debate on
the stump between him and the gentle
man from New York. When it was
over, I am certain that the country
for a considerable distance around
would be so fairly saturated with oil
that it would be dangerous to strike a
match in the neighborhood, and it
would not be oil out of Mr. Dolliver 's
Fordney'n' Attack on Bevrrtdge.
"The next day we heard the gentle
man from Michigan (Mr. Fordney),
who is a republican of high degree, de
liver a most bitter and vicious assault
upon Senator Beveridge, the republi
can boss of Indiana, on account of a
speech delivered recently at Indian
apolis. A stump debate between these
two eminent republicans would double
discount in interest any vaudeville
show ever pulled off in America. Lis
tening to the attack of the republican
gentleman from New York upon the
republican senator from Iowa, and the
attack of the republican gentleman
from Michigan upon the republican
senator from. Indiana, I recall ,the
words of the psalmist: 'Behold, how
good and how pleasant it is for breth
ren to dwell in unity, and then comes
to my mind the question now ringing
through the land, "What is a republi
can? Crltlditra the President.
"I will now drop the gentleman from
New York," exclaimed Mr. Clark, "and
go after bigger game, to-wit, the presi
dent of the United States. He Is not
only the chief traveler, but is the chief
spokesman for his party. He deserves ,
to be treated with candor and respect,
but I have a perfect right to discuss
his utterances as I would those of any
other public man. I wish to call at
tention of all concerned to the fact
that the president said on the 5th of
August, 1909, that 'the bill is not a
perfect bill or a complete compliance
with the promises made, strictly inter
preted.' I submit that that declaration
of the president is a flat contradiction
of the assertion of the gentleman from
New York that his bill is a perfect
compliance with the promises made
prior to the election of 1908. In Sep
tember? 1909, the president went on
an extensive speech-making tour, be
ginning' with-a speech in Boston, in
which he eulogized Senator Aldrich to
. Injured Popularity.
"That was the first serious .wound
which the president inflicted upon his
own popularity, for, right or wrong,
and I think right, the American people
hold Senator Aldrich largely respon
sible for the enormity of the Payne
Aldrich tariff bill. On the 17th of Sep
tember, 1909, the president said in
Winona, Minn.: 'On the whole, bow
ever, I am bound to say that I think
the Payne tariff bill is the best tariff
bill that the republican party ever
"When the American people read
that declaration the next morning and
remembered the utterance which I
have quoted from the president's state
ment of Aug. 5, they wondered what
change had come over the spirit of his
dream. They could not reconcile the
two statements. They know that the
tariff bill had not changed since Aug.
5, 1909. and they marveled at how a
bllL which the president declared on
that day to be neither a perfect bill
nor a complete compliance with the
promises made, could on the 17th day
of September be the best tariff bill
that the republican party ever passed."
Silver Wedding Anniversary.
Mr. and Mrs. William Krueger at
their home, 1100 Sixth street, Satur
day celebrated their 25th or silver
wedding anniversary. -At 6 o'clock
a delicious course supper was serv
ed, covers being laid for 55 guests.
Mr. and Mrs. Krueger were married
In Rock Island 25 years ago by the
late Rev. Mr. Mennicke, formerly pas
tor of the German Lutheran church.
Charles F. Kreuger of Chicago, a
brother of the groom of 25 years
ago was the best man at . that time
and at the anniversary Saturday Mr.
Krueger was present and acted as
best man .at a repetition of the mar
riage ceremony performed by Rev. Ph.
Wilbelm. Mr. and Mrs. Krueger have
two daughters. Miss Helen at home
and Mrs. Rosetta Jordan, Rock Is
land, and there are two grandsons,
William and' Harman Jordan. They
were the recipients of a number of
beautiful gifts of silver and linen.
Following the supper "a few hours
were spent together In a pleasant
way. Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Krueger of
Chicago came to be present at the
anniversary. Mr. Krueger will re
turn to his home tomorrow, return
ing the latter part of the week. Mrs.
Krueger will remain here till the
middle of next week when she and
her husband will return to Chicago.
Mr. and Mrs. Krueger are very grate
ful to their many friends for the

which they will return to Moline, and
