A BRIGHT EPISTLE,
BiKtr4 Attack. Cpa the Area for
Aaarrttic that the Legality;' A
nitui College Utadeaia Votlug
Hhaald t e laqalw lata.
An anonymous individual, whose bril
liancy and ambition are offset, we regret
to say, by bigotry and lack of experience,
bas sent a communication to the morning
newspaper published in ibis city and
which that institution eagerly published
attacking the Abgus for holding the
belief of a large part of the population
of Rock Islind, that there is a question as
to whether the transient students at that
college are legally privileged to vole in
Rock Islard; and for publishing the
names of thirty-six of these students who
are known to have voted, at the last
election, an 1 whose residences are indi
cated by their own registration, as else
where. Fordoing this the Argus has
been accuse d by this smart correspond
ent of doing its utmost to create
prejudice, snd ill feeling against the
college. The correspondent who makes
that accusation may be too bigoted, or
he may be so far above the average in
telligence that he cannot comprehend it,
but, to express it plainly, he is guilty of
a barefaced And malicious falsehood.
The sophemore who thus assails the
A rods egotistically remarks "the gentle
men belonging to the college, who vote
at our elections, usually vote indepen
dently, according to their best judgment,
and as they .re possessed of far more
than the average intelligence of the vots
ing population, are not at all likely to
vote blindly." The Argus, which does
not place itself above the common herd
of humanity or the average intelligence
of man, does nevertheless take it upon
itself to remark, though it docs so in its
most humble manner, even to clothing
itself in sack-cloth and ashes, that it has
never attacke i August sd a college; it has
never been otherwise than friendly to that
institution ct learning under any
and all conlitions. It has upheld
it, supported it, and striven to aid
it in every way possible, as its faculty
know. How much less would it be apt
now to raise 1a voice in opposition to it
when it conta ns within its walls young
men possessed of "far more than the
average intelligence of the voting popula
tion." How fortunate Rock Island is in
having these highly cultured, nature's
gifted youths amoi g us, and how kind
and consideraie it would be of the college
faculty to tag :bem so that we may know
and gaze upon them with admiration and
awe when th:y come down town and
mingle with the common herd the
"average voticg population "
Of course in the face of the high self
estimation in which the sophomore holds
himself, the high (f) opinion in which he
holds also the classes who, by their bal
lots, shape not only the policy of the city
government of Rock Island, but the des
tiny of the greatest nation on earth, the
A Rous would not presume to take too
many liberties in replying to the state
ments which he makes, but it will say this
much frankly: that the assertion that
"the gentlemen belonging to the college,
who vote at o ir elections usually vote
independently according to their best
judgment," is toBh, notwithstanding the
supreme intellect of those voters. It
is as utterly barren of truth as
the remark that the Arocs has attempted
to create any ill feeling toward Augus-
tana college. The students of that col
lege notwithstinding that they "are
possessed of far more than the average
intelligence of tie voting population"
vote like so maty geese or cattle, one
leads and the others follow; as one goes
the others go. But this is nobody's bus
iness and it would not have been brought
in but for the high-sounding self-con
ceited remark of the sophomore.
The Arocs has only to repeat that it
bas no desire to enter into a controversy
with Augustana college or the students,
and in candor, it does not believe that
the endorsement of that institution goes
with the communication which is respon
sible for these r;marks. Neither does
the Abgus belie v j that all the students
have the exal:ed opinion of them
selves as the one who wrote the bril
liant epistle. Tl e Argus has. in the line
of duty as a newspaper, agitated the
question of investigating the legality of
certain of the stu ients voting, without
Questioning how they voted or making
anything of a personal or disrespectful
attack upon them. For this, and this
alone, a great ma is of pent up intellect is
thrown away upon the world, which, in
this country, is composed of no more in
telligence than tl e "average voting pop

Mr. Fred. Hass, to a degree not known
to political warfa -e in this vicinity be
fore, has turned i s attention to profer
ing him taffy now, in hopes of influenc
ing hi ra agau.si entering into i
contest for the mayoralty, which
would be fatal tj McConochie's plans.
For instance, it snys: "We believe Mr,
Hass is a man of too much good sense
and has the peace and welfare of the city
too much at heart '.to engage in such a
contest, if the Argus has not." The
Argus does not pretend to know or say
what Mr. Hass intends doing, with re
gard to the contest, but it is satisfied that
Mr. Hass is not lively to look favorably
upon the Union, or to court favor from
any such quarters

LOW WATER AND LOGS.

What Hay Cone at Mtlll Farther e

"The present stage of the water is
about as directly opposite, ta what it was
last year at this time as it could well be,"
said Captain Wash Hight, the veteran
river pilot, this morning, in reply to an
inquiry as to the present stage of water
and its probable effect upon logging op
erations. "Yes," continued the captain, "if the
river should decline two inches more it
would require two boats to get a raft
over the rapids. And it would not take
an inch more of a decline to stop the
mills for want of logs. Tou see, just be
fore the river closes in the fall, the raft
ers drop their rafts down into the bays
along the river such as Lansing bay and
Lindon's bay. These are the first taken
out in the spring and are what the mills
are running on now and which last until
the logs can be gotten out of Beef Slough.
The trouble is now, it is getting too low
water to get logs out of Beet Slough and
consequently mills will have to stop."
"But I look for higher water with the
June rise, which seldom fails. In my ex
perience of forty yesrs I have known the
