THE SCHOOL ELECTION.
A Ulanee at the Candidate Wht Are
Being Talked offer the Faaitlaaaor
Trnat aad Honor.
One week from tomorrow occurs the
election for two members of the board of
education. The Argus has mentioned
the names of probable candidates as they
have been brought before the public by
their friends. They are the present mem
bers. President T. H. Thomas and Mr.
W. S. Knowlton, and also Maj. II. O.
Connelly. Dr. Carl Bernhardt. Dr. C. B.
Kinyon and Mr. J. W. Welch. Messrs.
Thomas, Connelly, Welch and Knowlton
have all served on the school board and
their policy in school matters is well
known. Mr. Thomas bas made a pro
gressive and conservative member and so
bas Mr. Knowlton. Years ago Maj
Connelly was president of the board, and
it is because of the course he pursued
then that there is a desire to see him re
elected. Mr. Welch likewise, is a fotmer
director, and lie made such an excellent
one that Lis friends are determined the
public schools shall have the advantage
of more of his services.
Desirous of learning the views of Drs.
Bernhardt and Kinyon as to what should
constitute the policy of a member of the
board an A Rous reporter sought inter
views with these gentlemen. Dr. Bern
hardi stated that he was a cand date, and
when asked as to his views of a public
school system, he said: "I am in full
sympathy with our public school laws; I
think a thorough, practical education in
the English language should be compul
sory, and with one or to other modift
cations I think the present law of Illinois
is all right." When asked as to the re
port that he tent his children to paro
chial schools, the doctor replied:
"I have a daughter who will graduate
from our high school next year, and an
other graduated from our ninth grade
this year. This doesn't show any failure
on my part to appreciate our public
school system, does itT I have sent all
my, children to the primary department
of the German Lutheran school, but after
they get through the early branches I
send them to the public schools, and am
glad that there are such excellent oppor
tunities that they may take advantage
Dr. Kinyon said: "I am not a candi
date for election to the school board. I
have never given my cousent to the use
of my name, but if my friends put me
forward and elect me I should consider
it an honor, of course."
In reply to an inquiry as to his opinion
of our present schools. Dr. Kinyon said:
"We have a most excellent school system
in Rock Island. I don't know of an im
provement I could suggest In it. anl
there being abundance of good timber
no dearth of candidates whatever I
can see no reason why I should give my
self any concern, and I certainly shall
not, as I am not a candidate, and would
not believe in going out and working for
myself if I were.- I must say, th ougli,
that I like the suggestion of the Akous
as to a non-partisan ticket. I believe the
public schools should be kept aloof from
politics, and I therefore deprecate any
thing that looks to giving any one party
control of the public schools. There is
no room for it in this state or any oth
In connection with his remarks upon
the American flag, with which he pro
poses to adorn his pulpit in his new
church, Rev. G. W. Que spoke upon the
school election question in the rink yes
terday morning. He stated that a time
there was when all churches had their
parochial schools, but all of the protes-
tant denominations had given them up
and were supporting the public schools
entirely. He said furthermore that the
disposition of all the candidates tor
membership of the board of education
should lie understood on this subject.

and none voted for who were not in full

school before the parochial school, and

J. N. Harris, 3 Fulton Market, New

"I have been using Brandretu's pills
for the last ten years. They are a won
derful medicine. There ia nothing equal
to them as blood purifiers and liver regu
lators. But I wish to state how remark
ably they cure rheumatism; and how eas
ily. I was affected by rbematistn of the
legs. My business wholesale fish dealer
naturally leads me to damp places. I
was so bad I could not walk.and at night I
suffered fearfully- I tried balsams, ear
saparillas and all kinds of tinctures, but
they did me no good and I was afraid of
being a cripple. I finally commenced
using Brandreth's pills. I took two every
night for ten nights, then I began to im
prove. I continued taking them for for
ty days and I got entirely well.
Now whenever sick I take Brandreth's
pills. They never fail."
Brandreth's Pills are the oldest, safest
and best blood puriSer and purgative
known. Tbey are purely vegetable,
therefore harmless. They Always pro
duce the same effect. Other purgatives
require increased doses and finally cease
acting altogether. A course of one or
two of Brandreth's Pills taken each night
is a positive cure for constipation, head
ache and all bilious disorders.
Brandreth's Pills are sold in every drug
and medicine store, either plain or sugar
