THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. TUESDAY. OCTOBER 8, 1912.
SEARLE MUST SAY
Filing of Nomination Papers
Show He It on Both Party
LAW ON SUBJECT IS PLAIN
Compelled to Declare Whether He Is
a Republican or a Bull
THIS IS THE TICKET
TO VOTE FOR
(Special to The Argus.)
Springfield, 111., Oct. 8 The records
of nominations in Illinois, it has been
discovered, show a somewhat remark-
able situation as r?ards the candidacy
of Charles J. Searle for congress in the '
Fourteenth or Rock Island district . '
They show what both the republican
and progressive (bull moose) parties
have certified to the nomination of
Searle, despite the fact that he was
tiominated by the regular republican
I rimaries and that the bull moose par
ty declined to act in the matter of a
congressional nomination; and, fur
thermore, that it is held by Colcnel
Roosevelt himself, and his manager.
Senator Plxon, that a man cannot
erve both the republican and the pro
gressive parties at the same time.
LAW IS PI.AIV
But the filing of the two nominations
will result in something more than the
ideas or theories of party leaders. Un

hlms' lf. The statutes provide that of
ficial notice of the two nominations
must be given him, whereupon he must
Ictt which nomination he proposes to
accrpt. So It Is up to Mr. Searle at
last to say whether he is a republican
or a bull moose.
There Is talk of mandamus proceed
ings on his part to compel the secre
tary of state to place his name on both
ballots, but the law does not admit of

FIave we ever stopped tn think how
our ancestors two or three generations
back lived and flourished with little or
no ventilation In their sleeping apart

sidered a very dreadful menace to
health aud a sure Inducer of colds.
Bedrooms were kept closely shut and
yet our ancestors, many of tbi'tii. were
hardier than we and lived to good old
ages. Animals burrow In their holes
at night breathing the same air over
and over again, while birds and fowls
tuck their beads under their wings.
Of course ventilation is absolutely nec
essary for proper comfort, cleanliness
and health, but people have lived on
little or none of It for hundreds and
thousands of years. Exchange.
