Schriver the XIan for the
WILL CANVAS VOTE
When Harry M. Schriver announced his platform and in
vited support as a candidate for mayor under the operation of
the new commission form of municipal government. The Argus
pledged him its support not only on the strength of his posi
tion, hut because it knew him to be a man of good character
who could be relied upon to do what he said.
Briefly stated, Mr. Schriver in his declaration of principles
upheld the ideals of the commission form of government, de
clared his purpose if elected mayor to cooperate with his asso
ciate commissioners in giving to Bock Island a creditable ad
ministration of public affairs, unhampered by considerations
of politics and uninfluenced by elements inimical to the pub
lic good. He maintained that Rock Island should have the best
chief of police, the best captain of police the best chief of the
fire department the best superintendent df the waterworks
and the best heads of all departments that it would be possible
to secure, irrespective of partisanship, and that the same
rule should apply to all subordinate positions.
These are the things precisely that the commission form of
Mr. Schriver has grown in strength as the campaign has
progressed. He has borne himself in a dignified manner, and
on the eve of election it may be truly said, in. all respects he
has proven a model candidates
Early in the canvass he asked that so far as he was con-
for the commissioners. ,4 cerned he would prefer that all that savored of bitterness of
strife be eliminated. He declined to indulge in personalities,
but said he would stand ready at all times to defend his
character and this he has done. ,
"I think I realize the great honor that would come to me
in election to the mayoralty of Rock Island at any time" Mr.
Schriver said today in conversation with a representative of
The Argus, "and particularly on so important an occasion as
the inauguration of the commission form of government. If I
am elected mayor of this city tomorrow, and I have every rea
son to believe I will be, it shall be my sole desire and aim to
prove worthy of the confidence reposed in me. I know
what it will mean to the city to have their affairs properly
conducted, and I know what it will mean to me.
"I stand where I did at the opening of the campaign. I
stand on the principles of the commission form of municipal
government, and I wish to say further that I have no alliance
with any political party or any political faction or ring, and
no political party or faction or ring will control me or dom
inate my policies or action. No dishonorable element in the
community will have consideration much less influence at my
hands. I propose to be jealous of the reputation I will make in
the event of my election. Realizing fully that it is a rare op
portunity, it will be my first and only aim to give to the peo
ple the very best that is in me and do all in my power to
make Rock Island what all the people want it to be one of
the best cities on the map."
Thus Mr. Schriver gives every promise of an-intelligent,
sensible and business-like administration of the office for
which he is standing.
If he is elected mayor tomorrow, as he surely will be,
and he wears as well in the office as he has as a candidate,
the people will be satisfied that they have made no mistake
in their choice.

The Plain Duty of Every
The polls open in the various precincts at 7 o'clock to
morrow morning and close at 5 in the afternoon. 'It is urged
upon judges that there be no delay in the morning in order
that Rock Island arsenal employes and railroad men have
abundant opportunity to vote before going to work.
There are two requisites to insuring a fair and honest ex
pression of the people in any election or on any proposition.
The first is to see that all who are entitled to vote do so;
the second is to see that none who is not entitled to vote.be
allowed to exercise that privilege.
The people should always vote. They should prize the
privilege and exercise it even at cost of inconvenience or hard
ship. Do not be a don't-care. Interest in the city which is
your home and in all that pertains to its conduct, should
dictate that you do at least enough for it as to vote. You
wouid resent it if your right to vote were challenged. You
should prize the inalienable right.
There has been more or less talk since the primary, of
floaters participating in the preliminary election and of the
likelihood of an attempt to repeat the operation tomorrow.
In view of these allegations as applied to certain precincts,
the election judges in the precincts where the irregularities
appeared to have been committed, struck from the register
lists the names of all whose residence was open to contro
versy, in order that those under suspicion should be required
to register again or in the case of attempting to vote
should be required to swear their votes in election day.
This is one method of insuring a fair and honest expres
sion of the legally constituted citizenship.
The other way is for every citizen to cast his vote.

The owner of the property in

property to her husband, subject to
a mortgage. Shortly afterwards, the
husband was indicted on a serious
charge and engaged me to defend

further agreement that I pay off

to set aside the will and in the mean
time the mortgage was foreclosed
and the property sold at public auc

I had the property bid in at said
