RATHER A SMALL TRICK
Katlin clerk Harry e. Braoka or
the FovtoDtre Remaved Without
caaae by Boms M'rlis.
Harry G. Brooks, for 11 years mailing
clerk at the Rock Island postofnee, was
removed by Postmaster Wells last even
ing, and Calvin Fry who has been about
the office for a year, promoted to Mr.
Brooks' position with the title of assistant
postmaster, while D. F. Krell has been
made asistant mailing clerk and delivery
clerk. The removal cf Mr. Brooks has
occasioned a great deal of comment in
the city, not only because he is exceed
ingly popular, but is an experienced and
efficient clerk, having served faithfully
under three different postmasters.
After investigating the case in all its var
ious phases there can be no reasonable
excuse for his removal, except that Mr.
Wells formed a dislike for him.
When seen this morning as to bis Tea
son for making the change, the postmas
ter said: "I hope to better the service
by so doing," and when asked if he con
sidered Mi. Fry with one year's experi
ence a better man than Brooks with 11,
he said -yes." When asked why, he
stated that he would do the work as he
wanted it done, and Brooks had not.
Mr. Wells intimated that his reason for
removing Brooks was insubordination,
though bis conversation showed oa the
face of it that the underlying reason
would be more apt to be personal preju
dice. Harrv Brooks was seen later in the day,
and stated that he had been discharged
without scarcely a moment's warning;
that shortly before closing time last
night Postmaster Wells had en tered his
department and informed him that before
he went home he wanted to see him. He
then started off, but turning back, said:
"In the meantime you can write out your
resignation, if you care to." Mr. Brooks
indignantly declined to do so, staling that
he had no reason for resigning. When
he finished his work he went into the
postmaster's office and asked him for an
explanation cf his disctarge, to wnich
Mr. Wells replied that he didn't know that
he had to state, nor did he give
him the satisfaction of explaining
his action. "I have been in the
postoffice 11 years,"eaid Mr. Brooks, "and
for several years have been mailing clerk.
I haye attended to my duties faithfully
and have worked hard; until 18 months
ago putting in 16 and IS hours a day. I
am a republican, as good a one as Mr.
Wells is. though I have not permitted
politics to interfere with my work which,
I think speaks for itself. Mr. Wells has
treated me in a very unfair manner, as he
did not broach the subject of my dis
missal to me until last night, and then
gave me no excuse for doing so. 1 pro
pose, howeyer, to know why I have been
so treated. 1 don't care for tbe position,
but it is the unprincipled way I have been
The general public sentiment all oyer
the city sustains Mr. Brooks, and Post
master Wells' course is condemned by
leading republicans who have heretofore
been Lis friends.

Wm. Timmons. postmaster of I3avi!le,

more fcT me than all other medicines
combined, for that bad feeling arising
from kidney and liver trouble." John
Leslie, farmer and stockman, or same
says: "Find Electric Bitters to be tbe
best kidney and liver medicine: made me
feel like a new man. J. W. Gardner,
hardware merchant, same town, says
"Electric Bitters is just the thing for i
man who is all run down and don't care
whether he lives or dies; he found new
strength, good appetite and felt just like
he had a new lease on life." Only 50c,
