They call the present assembly of
the Illinois legislature an extraordi
nary session, but did you ever see a
session of the Illinois general assem
bly that wasn't?
On by one the good men of th na
tional administration are being ellm

gone and if there are any good ones
left they will have to stand up while

Th success of the fight of the worn
en of Washington for street cars with
steps low enough to meet the exlgen
cies of hobble skirts should be record
ed among the memorable .triumphs in
the agitation for feminine rights.
Th swiftness of the people of the
southwest Is well illustrated in the fact
that four members of the New Mexico
legislature have been arrested for
bribery in connection with the elec
tion of United States senators. Illinois
was organized as a state something
like 80 years before it could get four
people under arrest for bribery in con
nection with the election of a I'nited
States senator, while New Mexico was
in action In the matter in about four
months. There is nothing slow about
the people of the southwest.
The tariff is a splendid thing if you
want to fill the poor houses to the
brim. Around Lawrence, Mass., Fall
lilver and those other places that had
more strikes, more lockouts than other
places there are more people living on
stsrvation wages than in any other
part of the t'nlted States, jet most
of the business of that part of the
country enjoys the benefits of the pro
hibitive tariff to a greater extent than
any other interest in the United States.
It has been proven by the experience
of the -working people 1n those com
munities that the tariff is no good for
The California State Federation of
Labor bas issued an open letter ad

vertisements of California as an Ideal
place for men who desire employment
at high wages are branded falsehoods,
and of those who issue these adver
tisements it is said: "Gold is the on

Is a chance to grasp a dime, they
crave It, and would take it out of the
palsied hand of advanced age or from
the helpless fingers of puny infancy,
without a pang of conscience, or the
slightest regret Such is the charac
ter of the men responsible for the
false pictures of California conditions
now being spread throughout the
world. There is no demand for labor
nothing but idleness on every hand.
Our streets are lined with Idle men
in search of employment, many of
them without means to sustain them
selves, and compelled to depend upon
the charity of strangers."

CONSIDER THE CAUSE.
Now that the fever has subsided.
Rock Island may consider, rationally
and without irritation, the cause of the
ill that lias overtaken it. What has
happened within the space of hours,
it may be said, is not due to the ex
posure of a day, a week, or a year, but of
years. Rock Island has paid the inerita
able penalty for, a series of violations of
the laws of healthful government. It has
suffered the culminating sorrow of
long train of afflictions, not the least
of which have been shameful and
scandalous venting of public slander
and public blackguardism which have
poisoned the body politic and arrayed
man against man.
Toung me n have grown from youth
with the wrong ideas in their heads, so
long has the reflection of impure
doctrine and practice been held up
to them w Ithout protest on the part of
the lawful agencies.
It is always when the desperate con
dition of affairs is precipitated that
th under element of disorder comes to
the surface and public characters are
seen for what they are. It Is the crucial
test that brings forth the man on the
one hand and the disturber on the oth
er. And the line of demarcation be
comes clearer and distinctly defined
between the good and useful citizen
and the bad and dangerous citizen.
Thus It Is that are presented the
questions that every man In Rock Is
land who is worthy of its citizenship
may consider calmly and sensibly, and
so considering nfay solve the problem
of bricglng out of the storm" and dis
cord a happier and a brighter morn for
Rock Island, when law shall be re
spected, the element of hatred and
evil disappear, the stain be removed,
and peace and good order prevail.

Besides the advantage resultant to

also to be observed that it is better to

continued to administer the doses im

Now Dr. Bolster proceeded to write

a strange coincidence of fate each one
of Dr. Pepper's orders flatly contra
dicted those of his distinguished col
league, although he had not set eyes
on the other's orders. Dr. Pepper was
Bemis Blaine's family doctor, and he
had in a moment of desperation, en
gendered by Bemis Blaine's contrari
ness to respond to bis treatment, called
in Dr. Bolster in consultation upon the
case. Dr. Bolster had remained ever
since, and now it was a dally custom
for the rival physicians to go to the
sickroom in company and wrangle over
the prostrate and pain racked form of
If he Is no better tomorrow we may

Folk before he left.
'Operate?" Dr. Pepper fairly danced
np and down. "I've always promised
Bemis that so long as I lived I'd never
stick a knife into blm. He don't be
lieve in operations."
"I shall perform the operation my
self," returned Dr. Bolster, coolly pull
ing on his woolen gloves. His long
chin whiskers wagged aggressively.
"Never! Bemis is my patient, and
if anybody Operates I shall!" Little
Dr. Pepper drew himself up to his full
est height and glared at bis burly op
ponent. "Gentlemen." cried Miss Folk tim
idly, "shall I continue to give the
spirits of niter to reduce the fever?"
"Yes," chipped Dr. Pepper quickly.
"No," vetoed Dr. Bolster.
Miss Folk looked appealingly from
one to another. Tears gathered behind
her thick lashes. "Something must be
done," she whispered, with, a sob in
The doctors confronted each other in

"Nonsense. Feed him up." Dr. Pep

"Atlantic City for him," ordered Dr,
"Rubbish! No place like the Adiron
Hacks." "Oh. doctors !" cried Mis Folk from
the upper ball, and by the nurse's tone
the two doctors knew that something
had happened to their patient.
"Ill bet he's gone. I predicted it"
puffed Dr. Bolster.
' "Must have taken some of your bea
j stuff, then," growled Dr. Pepper,
who had known Bemis Blaine fro til
childhood and loved him like a brother.
But there was no material evidenco
that Bemij Blaine was dead In the
sickroom they ranged themselves on
either side of the wide bed and stared
at the white counterpaine.
B lis Blain was nowhere t ls
seen. He hsd disappeared from his

an examination of the room and house

While consternation reigned in the
Blaine household, where the mother
and sisters of the absent Bemis ran
distractedly to and fro and the nurse
waited impatiently for the return of
the doctors, those two rivals were rac
ing each other down the shore roa
with apparently little heed to the 'dis
appearance of their best paying pa
tient. "If you'll stop zigzagging in front of
me I can pass you easily!" roared Dr.
Pepper to the physician in front.
"I'm willing to give your old mouse
trap a fair chance!" bellowed Dr. Bol
ster, turning his machine sharply to
tbe right a grave mistake, which he
discovered too late.
Dr. Pepper turned his machine to
the right There was a slckenlnar
crash, and then the moon witnessed
two angry doctors glaring at each
other from the wreckage of two ma
chines. The first thought that leaped to the
mind of each was the repair toll for
his machine, the second thought was
how to pay It, and the third, a comfort
ing one, was the reflection that Bemis
Blaine was a patient whose bill might
be stretched indefinitely.

"No. You?" Dr. Bolster was equsl
ly loath to spend time or sympathy
upon his colleague.
"No. If you'll excuse me Til hurry

"So have I," said Dr. Bolster quick

Dr. Bolster laughed wildly. "Why,

school, doctor, believes In fattening the
patient, and what Is the matter?"
For answer Dr. Pepper beckoned his
rival toward a dimly lighted window.
"Look!" he said weakly.
Renvlew village possessed a Chinese
laundry, and part of this laundry was
devoted to the savory preparation and
serving of chop suey and other delecta
ble Chinese dishes. The calico cur
tain was pushed aside, and within tbe
dimly lighted interior of the restaurant
a large man was seated, eating almost
ravenously of a large plate of chop
suey. The man wore a red dressing
gown, a golf cap, a pair of knitted bed
slippers and sadly needed a shave.
Watching him enjoy this meal were
The rival doctors pressed their
noses against the flyspecked pane of
glass. There were Beinls Blaine's moth
er and two sisters and the pretty
nurse, the shoemaker from the corner
and tbe village constable.
Just then Bemis Blaine pushed back
his chair, paid his bill and padded to
ward the door in his knitted slippers.
"You're a sick man!" yelped Dr. Pep
per, leaping fit his lale patient. ,
"Man, you're risked your life!" cried
Dr. Bolster as he clutched Blaine's
hand. He was thinking about bis bro
