Belleville, Feb. 5. Edward F.
Dunne of Chicago and Samuel Al
schuler of Aurora, rivals for the dem
ocratic gubernatorial nomination,
were guests of the St. Clair county
democrats here Saturday, and each
was given an opportunity of de
nouncing the republican administra
tion and making pledges according to
his Individual platform. Mr. Dunne
attacked the Deneen administration
for extravagance and laid stress upon
the "jackpot" disclosures in the leg
islature, besides condemning the
Deneen-Busse-Campbell county slate
which was nominated in Chicago to
day. Mr. Alschuler said the demo
crats have an excellent chance to car
ry the state and warned against the
outcropping of factional fights such
as are disrupting the republicans, ac
cording to his statements. "Lust for
power and pelf has been the obses
sion of the republican oligarchy, even
in the face of the storm of indigna
tion which haa arisen against them."
said Mr. Dunne. "The primary elec
tion law, which they allowed to be
paused only after the people had
spoken only too plainly, offers no
barrier to their audacious plan for
maintaining control of the state gov
ernment." Springfield, Feb. 6. The one big
political event of the week will be
the filing of nominating petitions for
rtate and county offices on Friday,
Feb. 9. For over 40 days watchers
have been holding down chairs in
front of the office of Secretary of
State James A. Rose in order to be
first in line to file petitions of candi
dates whom they represent. There
are four chairs now being occupied
at the west door of the secretary's
office and the common belief Is that
two of them belong to the Lorimer
Lincoln league faction of the repub
lican party and the other two are
being held In the interest of candi
dates identified with the Roger C.
Sullivan faction of the democratic
Prty. Secretary of State Rose
follows the plan he adopted last year
the 40 days' vigil of the watchers on
VUU1UC VII IUQ OCbl CUU J O VLUW
will avail them nothing. Last year
petitions which arrived at the secre
tary's office in the early morning
mail were filed ahead of those
brought to the office by the candi
dates themselves or their personal
representatives. The first day for
Tiling petitions has become an im
portant point in primary election
campaigns in Illinois.
It is then that
of both parties will be, and marks
the start of the real fight for the
ncmlnations for the various offices, i
Governor Deneen, who was indorsed
for renomination Saturday by the
republican county convention at Chi
cago, returned to Springfield Sunday.
Springfield, Feb. 5. Attorneys for
Senator Shelby M. Cullom filed their
enswer Saturday to the petition and
protest of Hugh S. Magill. They deny
t':at the Magill petition was filed or
offered to be filed prior to the time
that the Cullom petitions were on
the desk of the filing officer in the
secretary of state's office and he had
received notice thereof. It is also
denied that at the time Mr. Bailey,
messenger of Magill, met James Gul
lett, filing officer of the secretary of
state, he either offered the petition
to Mr. Gullett or informed him he de
sired to file the Magill petition. Sec
retary of State Rose has ordered that
the Magill petitioners Bhall file briefs
la the matter on or before Feb. 8;
the Cullom petitioners are to answer
on or before Feb. 15; the Magill pe
titioner will then have to Feb. 20
la which to file an answer.

date for the democratic nomination
for township collector subject to the
decision of the city-township conven
tion and invite the support of my

X. N. Riddell addressed a meet
ing of men yesterday afternoon
at the First Methodist church on The
New Man and Twentieth Century Prob
lems," the meeting setting a new mark
for men's gatherings in the city. In
suite of cold and storm an audience
assembled that filled the auditorium
of the church to overflowing, packed
the galleries, and ran out Into the Sun
day school Toom. The size of the au
dience was no more remarkable than
its quality, for It was made up of men
of every class and condition, and was.
above all, an audience of thoughtful,
earnest seekers after truth. They
heard the truth declared fearlessly and
fully, and before they left the meet
lng many of the men had seen visions
of undreamed of possibilities In them
selves that sent them out to live new
lives and to make new places of use
fulness for themselves in the world.
The meeting was conducted by the
Y. M. C. A-, C. D. McLane, as president
of the local association, presided, and
Introduced the speaker. A short ser
vice of song was started before the
time announced for the beginning of
the meeting, and selections were de
lightfully rendered by the Wennerberg
quartet of Augustana college. The stu
dents from Augustana occupied the
gallery of the church, and made a
striking assemblage of young manhood.
TEIf.S OF RIGHT LIVING.
Mr. Riddell's message was one of in
spiration and challenge to men. He
spoke not at all in the usual manner,
but instead of painting the blackness
of sin and the dangers of dissipation,
he showed the splendor of clean living
and the possibilities in life for the
man who will direct his energies to
the higher and nobler elements. He
preached the possibility of making the
city and the nation right by making
Its individual citizens right, by giving
them right Ideals and the inspiration
to attain them.
After speaking for more than an
hour and a half, Mr. Riddell issued a
challenge to the men to join him in a
pledge for a better condition in their
own lives, and In the city, and almost
without exception the vast crowd
sprang to their feet, pledging them
selves to right living and to an effort
to help make the city the kind of a
city they would like to live in.
WII.I. PRIVT I.ECTIRE.
As the lecturer was about to dismiss
his audience, one man demanded a
hearing for a proposition he had to
! make. He stated that the lecture was
too good a thing to be limited to those
who had heard it given, and proposed
to start a subscription to make it pos
sible to put a printed copy into the
hands or every man in Rock Island
who will read it. A prominent busi
ness man rose and said, "Order the
books; they will be paid for." The
crowd cheered, and many expressed
the desire to help. H.- B. Hayden was
appointed to receive contributions for
the purpose. As a result of this ac
tion in a very short time there will be
a large supply of the lecture on "The
New Man and Twentieth Century
Problems" in the hands of a local com
mittee for free distribution, so that all
may have and read the lecture.
Tonight Mr. Riddell will give one of
his strongest lectures, "Science and
Religion," which is the first in a series
on "Vital Christianity." The lectures
will continue throughout the week at
the First M. E. church, beginning at 3
o'clock each evening.
