Tha Triple Plum.
Tbe three leathers of the Prioce of
"Wales, with the German motto. "Ich
Plen" ("I serve"), are supposed to be
the arms of tbe blind king of Bohe
mia, whom Kdwnrd IIl.'s sod. the
JHnck I'rince. overcame at Crewy.
The captor. It will be remembered,
waited Id his own tent opoo hi a cap
tive; hence a special significance to
tbe worda "I serve.' In this, how
ever, we hare a story that history re
funes to accept Tbe triple plnme. In
deed, as well as feathers of various
numbers, came Into general ose about
the time of Edward III. But It was
cot unknown before that time, and
even at that time .It was not the dis
tinctive cognizance of tbe Prince of
Moles. Other members of tbe royal
fuuilly bore It as well as be. Not till

(Qulncy Journal )
Every citizen of this country who Is
worth while has political convictions.
A nonpartisan man is a nonentity.
While our state constitution was so
drawn as to enable us to remove ju
dicial elections as far as possible from
the influence of politics, and while we
. all believe .firmly in a nonpartisan Ju-
alciary, it was never conceived and
, has never been advocated, that our
' courts could or should be composed of
nonpartisan men. The nonpartlean
; ship of tbe bench can only be maln
t tained by keeping on It men who dif-
fer in their political convictions,
j A few of the republican newspapers
. of this supreme judicial district In ad-
I vocating the election of Mr. Grier are
i seeking to take advantage of the well
; known policy of this state to maintain
!a nonpartisan bench. 'They concede
that this contest ahould be n on parti
Ban in character and urge the voter
to forget the political convictions of
Mr. Grier and vote for him because
of his excellent qualifications.
This appeal Is adroit. While asking
the voter to observe nonpartisanship
and vote for Mr. Grier, it really asks
htm to repudiate the policy of this
state to maintain a nonpartisan judi
ciary, for the election of Mr. Grier
would almost wholly destroy the non
partisan character of the supreme
court. The only way in which the non
partisanship of that court can be main
tained is by keeping its membership
as nearly equally divided as may be
between the two great political par
ties. Among the most commendable acta
of President Taft. if indeed it is not
! among the greatest of his actions, was
the appointment of Justices Lurton
and Lamar, democrats, as members
of the supreme court of the United
States, and the promotion of Justice
White, also a democrat, to be chief
justice of that great court.
Justices Lurton and Lamar were not
appointed because they were nonpar
tisan men without, political convic-
' tinna Rnth nt t hfiia mean a t-h Aamn
crats, and they were made members of
the supreme court by a republican
president because they were democrats
and for the sole purpose of thus pre
serving the nonpartisan status of the
greatest court in the world.
j President Taft could have found
many republican judges and lawyers
as well qualified as either Lurton or
: Lamar, and in fact waa urged to con-
; aider and appoint such men, but know
; ing that their appointment would re
jsult in making the supreme court a

Mr. Crier's friends and admirers are
urging that he la eminently well quali

Grant It. His election would leave
but one democrat in a court of last re

bers. This would result In making our
supreme court a partisan body and
would entirely defeat the purposes of
the framers of our constitution. Jus
tice Cooke Is equally well qualified to
retain this position. For the past two
years he has filled the office credita
bly, and his work has met with gen-'

Why Vote for Him?
Why vote for Charles A. Clark? He
is a republican through and -through.
A republican not for revenue, but from
belief and principles. His platform is
one that cannot but convince the. most
skeptical that he stands flat-footed for
the best Interests of the people of this
senatorial district. He believes that
no public servant of the people should
take a pass from any railroad. He de
clares that if elected he will not ac
cept free transportation, but will pay
his fare and thus be un trammeled by
corporate influence. He stands for
temperance, declaring that he will pro
tect and defend the present .efficient
local option law, using his very best
endeavor that It remain upon the stat
ute books in its present form. He de
clares himself in favor of a law which
will provide for the promotion of
means that will eradicate from Illinois
the disease which baa swept away mil
lions of dollars worth of the farmers'
swine. He criticises the last legisla
ture which failed to provide the means
of obtaining a serum of known worth
which would ex terminate tbia evil. He
declares himself in favor of an eco
nomical state administration; one
where the people will receive full value
'for every dollar expended. Nominate

Urbana, March 27. A committee

tural and vocational education bill for
Illinois. The selection of thia commit
tee was the principal action of a con
ference between a committee of the

cultural and allied education ahould b
placed in Illinois currlculums. B. F.
