Mr. Eugene Lewis of Moline has wriu
ten a letter to the Chicago Eeral I bearing
on tbe Collins ease in which he Bagaosee
me legal aspect pretty lhorou(hly. He
In an editorial of the flth inct
la effect, that tbe democrats In it t Twenty
first district, who hold that Wllon is en
tilled to his seat in the house oil account
of tbe ineligibility of Collins, are clearly
in the wrong, and cite a statutu, presum
ably Sec. 122. Chap. 46. Rt. t ut. Elec
tions, as decisive of. tbe quest ir a. Does
tbls statute apply to this case? The con
stitution of Illinois (1870) pro rides that
"each house shi ll be the
judge of tbe election returns aadqualifr
ctlonsof its members," Art 4, See. 9.
in any togfelative act changt abrogate
or modify tbe fundamental aw of the
state? Clearly not. If not. ibis clause
referred to by vou does not dipicily apply
to this case. Very possibly it may apply
to every elective . office except to that of
members of the general asset ably. But
U may be claimed that on acct unt of this
statute tbe members of tbe bcoe should
be guided by it on moral grounds.
It is clear from the constita .Ion of the
state that this is a question for the house
of representatives to settle, and it is
equally true that they ought to be gov
erned in their decision by the law of the
land, whatever it may be, ap plicable to
such cases. It Is a presumnti n when the
legislature enacts a statue tl. at its pur
pose is to modify or re Deal i ha exiatlns-
law upon the subject.
Tbe nassage then of thesta'uteof 1872,
sec. 122, of chapter 40, cleat ly indicates
mat Derore its passage, the h w was that
in case of an election, where tae candidate
having the highest number ot votes was
neligtble. tbe eligible candidate next
bluhtst would take tbe officii. This be
ing unrepexled as to membeni of tbe gen
eral assembly, is still the law . Hence tbe
correct inference to be dratrn from tbe
act of the legislature quo' ed by yon -would
be directly opposite from the one
you draw and would he that Wilson is en
tiilod to bis seat. Doub'.lt-ss there are
precedents for snob a case tliat may have
weight with the house in m tklng its de
oislon in tbls rase.
Strong arguments may bit made why
tbe legislature should decidtt this way or
that, but the matter rce's absolutely with
tbe house. Section 03 of tbe act you
quote (chapter 40) gives lb 9 n this tight if
It were needed.
It msy be a serious quest on of public
policy whether tbe legislature shall en
courage even tbe majority to make void
a legally called election in a district by
votiDg blanks or by voting for a candi
date whom the constitution has declared
ineligible, whether they dolt through
stupidity or design.
Tae Sew Draw Pier at Berk, salaael
Bridge Fraetieally f ; anapteted.
The stonework of tbe new draw pier at
the Rock Island bridge is completed, and.
as the Davenport Democra' fays, "Thus
la completed one of the finest pieces of
masonry that exists on toe Mississippi
river and one that will res st the brunt of
the ice and tbe action of the water for
decades to come. Tbe work has been In
spected every day by Cel. Whlttemore
and he has enoouraged the use of the
beat of material and workmanship. "
Toe outside walls of tbe pier are seven
feet tbick at the base and three and one
half on top, twenty-two leet high, and
show a total length of 68 i feet. Besides
this there are six cross witlls, each twenty-six
feet long and a but tress which will
lend strength to the uppe corner of the
pier next to tbe main channel where
the greatest pressure and wear from float
ing ice will be felt. Ad lad stability is
given to the structure by twenty-eight
iron bare, one and thr.-fourth inches
thick, which pass through both walls and
rivet them together as fl rmly as the hand
of fate. The two upp v sections into
which the pier is divide 1 by the cross
walls will be filled in sol d with rock ta
ken from the cribs which have supported
the cofferdam. The veierable structure
has passed its period of usefulness and is
gradually being demolished. Tbe rock
filling is beiog transfers sd to tbe interior
of tbe new pier, and tl is work will be
completed early - in January; Tben the
cofferdams will be removed.

The pubiio would ranch rather have bad
tbe street superintendent do the cleaning
for two reasons. In lbs first place
because they pay bint to do It, and ia tbe
second place because it is not likely that
be would have been swift and energetic,
enough in his work to have raised so
much dust. In a word if Rock Island
had a street commissioner who could bs

no dust for the wind to kick up as as has
