Democrats Confident of Maeren.
This democratic county convention for
the p irpose of placing in nomination a
candilate for the office of state's at
torney for the special election to be held
July "6 to choose a successor to the late
Patrhk O'Mara, met pursuant to the call
of the county committee in the court room
at the court house at 1 o'clock this af
ternoon. Consideting the fact that this
is the busy time of the year in the coun
try tt ere was a remarkably large attend
anoe from all over the county, as well as
the cities of Rock Island and Moline,
and tie heartiest enthusiasm prevailed.
In tho face of the result of the recent re
publican convention, it was apparent to
all th it only the selection of the right
candi late was essential to the success of
the democratic ticket. Fully realizing
this fiict the convention fitted its choice
to tbf circumstance in the nomination of
Mr. Eugene Lewis, of Moline.
It fas 1:30 o'clock when the conven
tion was called to order by Mr. George
W. V nton, of Moline, chairman of the
county committee, who named Alderman
Winslow Howard, of Rock Island, as
chairman. The selection was endorsed
by the delegates, and taking the chair,
Mr. Howard returned his thanks for the
honor conferred upon him. On motion
H. . Caateel, was made secretary. A
committee of five on credentials was
named by the chair on motion of R. D.
BuforJ, as follows: John Sehafer, Port
Byrot ; M. J. McEniry. Moline; Jos.

Nominations being in order for state's
attorney, B. D. Buford arose and named
Eugece Lewis, Esq.. of Moline. He
was a good attorney, a reliable man in
U4 would mue bu
excellt nt candidate. The nomination
was quickly seconded by Andrew Don
alson, of Rural, and H. C. Wivill, of
this city, and upon motion it was made
unanimous by acclamation.
The chair appointed Geo. W. Vinton
and B D. Buford a committee to escort
Mr. Lewis to the rostrum, where be was
greete i with a storm of applause. The
nominee commenced by sayine that he
was more accustomed to standing on the
floor of the court room than on
the elevation occupied by the cirs
cuit judge. He thanked the con
vention heartily for the unanimous Dom
ination for the important office of state's
attorney an office in which a man
should know no friends or enemies, pol
itics or religion, but only men charged
with crime, and prosecute all alike. The
speaker said if he was elected he would
perform the duties pertaining to the office
to the best of bis ability, and he would
guarantee that the democratic party
would not be ashamed of his conduct
should he be chosen. Mr. Lewis said the
campaign would be short, but he would
do all in his power to be elected, and
wanted hiB friends throughout the coun
ty to exert themselves as much as possi
ble. If the democrats did their duty he
would be successful at the polls,
Mr. M. J. McEniry, of Moline, was
then called for and made an excellent
speech in support of the nominee. He
was pleased to see so many present,
whicL showed the democrats of the
county were wideawake. They had
nominated a man of whom the party
could be proud, and against whom no
chart es could be brought, and his
unan mous nomination proved conclu
sivelj that Mr. Lewis was the man for the
hour, and that he would be triumphantly
elected on the 16th of July. He had the
high moral character and all the neces
sarr attributes to fill the office creditably.
He was a good iadee of law and knew
how jo draw an indictment correctly. Mr
McEiirv was loudly applauded at inter'
vala (lurinelis speech.
Af ar an exhortation by Frank Schrad
er, oi' Moline, and Frank Lucas, of Rock
Islani.iMr. Wm. McEniry responded to
numerous calls, and made one of his
characteristic good speeches, which was
well received. At the conclusion of his
remarks the convention adjourned, feel
ins that it bad made a wise selection in
the choice of a candidate, and confident
that the people would endorse its action
at the polls.

was the daughter of C. W. Anderson,

received many hearty congratulations.
A FLAT FAILURE.
How theObnoxIonsMeasare Operates
and What I Thamht of It XOW---A
Change Kot Unlikely
While on a trip through the interior of
Iowa last week, an Argus representa
tive was enabled casually to observe and
learn of the working of Iowa's famous
prohibitory law. It was in those por
tions of the Hawkeye state where the law
originally had its most devoted friends
and staunchest, unceasing advocates that
the writer had an opportunity to learn of
its present status- That the measure is
weak in minds where it was once re
ceived with enthusiasm, it does not take
but a short while to discern . Yet it is a
fact equally true that those whose
confidence in prohibition is waning,
are no leBS heartily in sympa-i
tby with the suppression of the
liquor traffic, but they question now the
means of accomplishing the end sought,
and not the end itself. Experience has
plainly taught them that prohibition is
not the way, and while some who once re
posed their faith in the doctrines of
prohibitory enactment, shake their heads
when questioned as to what they think of
their pet scheme.do not hail with delight
the idea of high license simply because
they believe liquor an evil and cannot
consistently favor licensing an evil, are
frank to acknowledge that for practical
results it would accomplish vastly more
than absolute prohibition.
Said one gentleman who two years ago
was one of the most earnest and immov
able believers in the idea of entire for
biddance, "I believe the plan of prohibi
tion is right, but I am beginning to doubt
its policy. I would like to see it enforce.!,
but don't believe it can be now. I have
arrived at this conviction not only
through a careful observation and inves
tigation of the operation of the measure
in our own slate, but have been prompted
in it in no small degree by the recent
overwhelming backsets similar measures
have received in the east. I don't believe
any law of such a nature can be framed
that cannot be eluded or violated. I
have heard the argument raised, to be
sure, that prohibition can be enforced the
same as any other law, but I hesitate to
sustain such an opinion. The liquor
question is one of those things you can
not meet as squarely as other issues
treated in the law in the light of crime.
You cannot enforce prohibition of the
liquor traffic; it cannot be done, and all
attempts in that direction lead to deceit
and hypocrisy in manners not otherwise
conceived and therefore provoke an evil
that is more to be deplored tnan the law
ful sale of intoxicating beverages."
Another representative Iowan re
marked: "When a man attempts to tell
you that while prohibition is a flat
failure in the frontier cities such
as Davenport, Dubuque, Sioux City
and Council Bluffs, etc., it is a
success in the interior, politely inform
him that be does not know what he is
talking about. Here is a town where the
ordinary observer would think the law
was respected to the letter, and if you
were in such a condition that a drop of
liquor would save your life, you could
not go to a drug store and get it, yet I
can take you to a place where you can
get all you want if you want a drink. I
can show vou a man who 'stands in' and
that is all that is necessary in any Iowa
town, I care not where it is. So it is, a
man may need brandy or whisky or beer
for medicinal purposes and be may die
for the want of it in the sight of the law. j
15! !Udi2&VorZhe vVrf purpose the
law contemplates denying him of. We
don't have the great amount of drug
store dram shops in Iowa as they do in
Kansas; they don't dodge the law here in
that way as a rule, though there are some
pharmacists who are getting a good
livelihood out of their little 'side
issues.' But there are plenty of
places in every town of any size and im
portance in Iowa, where the man who
wants his drink can get it, and be does
get it, too. You might ask how this
liquor gets into Iowa. I would answer.
Easily enough! It comes in from such
cities as you hail from kock island,
Peoria, Qulncy, and even from Chfcago,
in the shape of packages labelled 'salt,'
'sugar,' 'nails' and all such things."
"Yes," put in another citizen, "and the
most obnoxious featura is that in locali
ties where liquor creates the most crime
the largest cities I mean the law is
moet openly violated, and it fails where
it should be most stringently enforced.
It is my opinion that the only way you
can meet this liquor question fairly and
I want to see it downed is to educate
the people as to its evils, not attempt to
These are only a few of the expres
sion! heard on the subject, and all of
which contributed to the formation of
the opinion that within two years at
least, the law which is now a disgrace
to the Iowa statute books, will be re
pealed, and high license substituted.
People who were once most conspicuous
in their advocacy of prohibition, are now
either quiet or open in avowing their
disapproval of it, as a result of exper
