that the Union has made a dismal failure
in trying to control the board.
The Vnlon the MrheI Kleetloa.
Whenever an opportunity is offered the
Union seems to have the inherent faculty
of making itself ridiculously absurd. This
morning it goes further and establishes a
reputation for asininity and downright
puerility. 'It objects to democrats serv
ing on the school board, because it says
they are opposed to the compulsory edu
cation law; il thinks they are reaction",
ists and in short their opinions on educa
tional matters disqualifies them from
having anything to do with the manage
ment of the schools.
The Union' position is hypocritical and
false and an insult to all intelligent peo
pie, democrats and republicans alike
has always been the aim in Rock Island
to eliminate politics from school matters,
and we are pleased to say that this course
has been rigidly observed up to this time,
and notwithstanding the unwarranted
and unpatriotic position of the Union, we
think the good sober sense of the
people will still maintain a respect
for this rule. While the A Rous
the past has sometimes suggested
the advisability and fairness of hav
ing the political complexion of the
board as equally divided as possible, it
has probably supported more republicans
than democrats. But this dictum of the
morning sheet that no democrat shall be
elected to the board of education is an
unjustifiable and insufferable piece of in
Even if the statement made by the sil

were opposed to compulsory educa

laws of the stale, and it is a matter of in
difference what the membet's predilec

Tf?e Anti-Trust Bill as Agreed I'pon
the Senate and House Conferrees.
Washington City, June 12 The report
of the house conferrees on the anti-trust
bill which was presented to the house yes
terday (Wand dissenting) says that in the
original bill two things were declared ille
gal, viz: contracts in restraint of inter
state trade or commerce and the monopo
lization of such trade, Its only object was
the control of the trusts, so-called, so far
as such combinations in their relation to
interstate trade are within the reach of
the federal legislation. The house amend

agreements entered into for the purchase
or sale of commodities, or in the trans

the Com in a PaJL
Washington City, June 12. Col. J. W.
Avery, private secretary to Senator Brown,
of Georgia, has just returned to Washing
ton City after a long visit. to Atlanta.
Speaking of the present political situation
in Georgia, he said: "The Farmers' -Alliance
is a most powerful organization in
our state. The Democratic party numbers
about 150,000 voters in Georgia, and the Alii
ance has 100,000 members. That means
that two-thirds as many aa there are in the
Democratic party are members of the Alli
ance. That they mean to take a hand in
politics is settled. They will try to elect a
governor, capture the legislature and
United States senatorship, and elect at
least three congressmen. The state con
vention will le held early in Angust, and
the decree of their success iu that will
probably determine their action in the
congressional conventions which will fol

went to work at 6 o'clock the next morn

crowd, a young Irishman entered and
took a look at- the body.
"An' when did poor Mike die?" he asked.
"Poor bye. Sure, an' its Michael Ford
I've known this many a year."
As no one knew the dead man.no one
could tell him, and he left to notify
Michael's friends of his sudden demise.
And They Came to the Wake.
Later in the evening he returned with

way they passed several hours. Sorrow
getting the better of them it was decided
that their deceased friend should lie

It was necessary for some of the party to

treated to somewhat noisy proof of the

The church was crowded, the guests in

Kingston, Ont, June 12. Quite a rip
ple of excitement was created at Ferry
wharf yesterday afternoon by an order
given by Col. Colton, commandant of Bat
tery A, stationed at Kingston, prohibiting
a Canadian military band boarding the
American steamer St. Lawrence until she
had lowered the stars and stripes. A few
days ago the management of the steamer
received permission from the Canadian
government to call at Canadian . ports
down the St. Sawrence river to collect ex
cursionists. The boat was engaged by the
Canadian Order of Foresters for aa excur
sion to the Thousand islands. Among
those most prominent iu the party was
Mayor Brennan, of this city, who had en
gaged Battery A band to escort the ecur
sionists. When about to board the boat
the mayor was informed by Col. Colton
that the band must not tard the steamer
until the American flag was hauled down.
Wouldn't Lower Old tilory.
This order caused great commotion
among the Foresters and their friends.
The owners of the steamer, however, after
being consulted, refused to obey the order,
and so informed Col. Colton. The Amer
ican flag was flying at the end of the
steamlr's bowsprit and the Union Jack
at the top of the staff at the 1hw of the
boat, and the stars and stripes also pre
dominated at the stem. Col. Colton was
interviewed last evening by a reporter with
reference to the matter of allowing the
men to land in American ports wearing
British military uniforms.

He said: "It is against the regulations
