KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend Avenue.
We were approached a few
a scheme which was explained to us in the following language:
"We (the schemers) will place a half dozen men in your city and will
visit every house, offering for sale a ticket costing the purchaser 25 cents.
This will entitle the holder any time within six months to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $2.75 making a total of $3 00 a dozen
Cabinets and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame and
pictures you can represent as worth t4, $5 or $6; we will swear it's worth
whatever vou say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the
25 cents that, we collect. Oh, yes, the public will bite at worse than this.
But :U a great scheme as the frame you give away costs $12 00 per hurt
dred, 12cts with every order. Suppose one of your neighbors were to go
into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $2.00 per dozen, say the extra
picture and frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme be
would get $2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame. Eh?
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the leading photo
grapher but we are bound to work it through some one Yes, we may
strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. We give no bond
that he will continue in business, but he will if he can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than he now obtains. "
It is needless to say that RASMU83EN declined to employ peddlers and
tramps to work such questionable tactics. The only means we use to
create business are:

The loc il post of the rand Army of
the Repab'ic, at a meeting Monday even'
ing passe I the following resolutions,
which are selNexplanatory:
Where. B, On June 18, 1889, an arti
cle was pu aligned in the Rock Island
Daily Ah sub purporting to voice the
sentiments of this post as expressing in
dignation liecause the sum of $25 was
gratuitously allowed by our committee on
memorial trrangements to Comrade Wil
liam McPbaeters for delivering his ad
dress at th ; Island cemetery, May 80;
therefore t e it
Resolved, That instead of feeling the
least indigiant, this post hereby indorses
the action of said committee on such ex
penditure to Comrade McPbeeter for his
able and excellent address delivered on
said occasi in, and that too at a less ex
pense than such services have heretofore
Resolved, That we believe the motive
for such pc blication was personal and in
tended to 1 1 jure the character and stand
ing of Comrade MePheetera, whom we
esteem highly as a brave soldier, an able
orator and patriotic citizen.
Resolved, That a copy of these resolus
tions be furnished to the Rock Island
Argus with a request that said paper
give it the name publicity that it gave the
article to which the resolutions refer.
Also that the resolutions be published in
Thomas Campbell, Commander.
OfEcial: Morris T. Stafford,
The above resolutions were banded to
the Argot for publication Tuesday
morning, b it with no intimation on the
part of the post to pay for their publica
tion. Taking for granted, however, that
the post thinks the A rods owes an apol
ogy for the article which called them
forth, we will publish them gratuitously.
The Abo jb is no more surprised than
the public generally that Buford post
should lend its official endorsement to
the unprecedented and unpatriotic act of
charging a :'ee for what should, especially
to ati old soldier, be a labor of love.
When the Argus stated in its issue of
June 13th, 1 hat there was indignation ex
pressed ami Bg members of Buford post
over the c barge of $25 made by Rev.
McPheetere for the address deliv
ered by him on Memorial day,
it stated the truth, and reiter
ates the statement now, notwithstand
ing the resolution passed Monday even
ing. Upon inq airy, indeed we are pleased to
find that the resolutions are as severely
condemned by old soldiers, whose pan
triotism. and service to their country is
unquestioned, but who do not parade
their bravery before the public contin
ually, as was the bill of Rev. McPheetere.
These veterans, while mortified that one
claiming to be an old soldier, should re
quest remui eration for paving proper re
spect to th) memory of his dead com'
rades, feel no less outraged that the post
should expend funds donated bv the city,
for such put pose.
As near a a we can ascertain the white
washing r solutions were passed after
most of the members who had been pres
ent had lef :, and a large majority of the
post knew nothing about them until
they were :en in print.
The resol jtions appearing in the Union
Tuesday morning had only the name of
Adjutant 8 afford attached, but the copy
sent to the Argus contained the name of
Commander Campbell. This of itself
looked a little suspicious, and happening
to meet Mr Campbell yesterday, he was
asked if he had signed them. He said he
had not, and didn't know anything about
them. Thii looks as though everything
wasn't just right. But the resolutions
were adopte d, whether correctly or not,
and are not only a complete endorse
ment of Re". McPheetere, but charges
the Argus with being actuated by per
spnal motives and intending to injure the
reverend ge ltleman's standing. This is
not true, ami if the gentlemen who passed
them possessed a reasonable degree
of propriety, they would not misconstrue
our motives. Inasmuch, however, as the
few very pat riotic gentlemen who are so
prominent and conspicuous in grand army
affairs, have seen fit to sustain Rev.
MePheetera and place themselves on the
same level, it may not be out of place to
investigate tills matter a little.
At the tin e the city council appro
priated $20(' towards defraying the legits
imate expenses for memorial day services.
that official body was criticized aa over
stepping the powers delegated to it-
While the appropriation was clearly an
illegal one no particular remonstrance
was raised, ronsidering the sacredness of
the purpose for which it was donated.
But the quei tion may now be raised.
"what did tl e post do with that money T"
The council did not intend to giye the
$200 to the (general fund ofthe post, but
simply to as list in defraying the expenses
on that particular occasion. If there is
any balance it should be paid back into
the city treat ury. Besides it is hardly
probable that the council would have al
lowed the pest a cent if it supposed for an
instant a pot lion of it was to be paid a
hired speal er. The only honorable
course for the post to pursue, under the
circtimstanct s, is to refund the city the
$25 paid Mc Pheetera, and whatever bal
ance, if any, is left of the $200. It had
better pass a resolution of such charac
ter, before it tries to exonerate McPbee
ter. -.- . - ' - - - - --

THAT STONE CONTRACT.
Hr.MehareaaaB'a fTaaneeeaafal Effort
f Defeat the Clevelaaa Coaapaay.
The awarding of the contract to fur
nish stone for the arsenal dam to the
Cleveland Stone company is a great dis
appointment to Architect Schureman, of
this city, as well as to the workmen who
expected employment here. Mr. Schure
man put in three weeks at his own ex
pense, working for Rock Island's inter
ests, going to Washington and interest
ing some of the Ohio congressmen in the
matter. Something has evidently changed
Oen. Benet's mind since Mr. Schureman
saw him at Washington. At that time he
appeared to be convinced that it would
not be advisable to accept the Cleveland
Co's. bid, and he favored cutting the
stone here. The representatives of the
company have evidently not been idle,
however, in the interim, as the final out
come iudicatea. With yesterday the time
would have expired when proposals could
have been accepted without advertising
for new bids. The Argus of yesterday
evening referred to a letter received by
Congressman Gest by the Moline Busi
ness Men's association, showing that
there was no hope of having the stone
cut here. He says:
Dear Sir: Saturday evening I called
on the secretary of war relative to Rock
Island dam. He had just returned to
Washington and had examined all the
papers in the ease. Mr. Schureman, in
the paper he presented, claimed that the
Berea Stone Co.'s bid was not the lowest.
but the chief of ordnance, Oen. Benet,
reported that after a critical examination
by Himself in his office, it was found to
be the lowest, and the contract is accord-
ngly awarded to that company. I had
hoped that it might be found consistent
with the interests of the government that
the stone be cut on the Island, and there
by give employment to our people, but I
could not insist upon it at an extra ex
pense to the government. Yours truly,
W. H. UEbT.
Mr. Schureman feels confident that if
the city had authorized him to stay in
Washington until the matter was fully
disposed of, he would have gained his

At the adjourned meeting of the board
