THE A1LMIGHTY DOLLAR
Is dominant in everything, but money is not all
that you have to think of when you are ordering
FURNITURE AND CARPETS.
Spend your money blindly and nothing but good
luck will give you your moneys' worth; spend it
intelligently and you will get your almighty dol
lar back again. Does not style count for some
thing, and durability for something more? If
you do not get both of these, what sort of an in
vestment are you making? Whether you or
they be big or little, you will do justice to your
dollar and justice to your judgment. If you want

THE QUICK BOYCOTT.
Aa Affidavit Settlac Forth aaUaaer
Maaalagorthe limber Day Ointenl
tla. . B. H. -Quick. say, the Moline Dispatch,
seems to have become pretty thoroughly
convinced that the members of the labor
organizations had ordered a boycott
against him, because of a suspicion It at
existed that he bad been instrumental in
procuring the indictment of Rishsri
Brown for selling liquor at the Labor day
picnic, in iolation of the state law,
which beer was sold for the purpose of
helping de'ray the expenses of the Labor
Having been thus convinced Mr QiSck
went before the Labor day committee and
maue an affliavit that he was "not
guilty," and in fact knew nothing as to
who had done the business. . The com
mittee met in Molioe Wednesday night,
and authorized the following:
To whom it may concern: A report
that B. H. Qiick had been instrumental
in bringing about the indictment and
prostcution of the Libor celebration
committee has circulated widely among;
the general public, and has proved dam
aging to his business interests. To throw
the right light on the matter, and to re
lieve the public of all doubt of his ha v.
ing anything to do, or even knowing of
any person who did, with the case, Mr.
Quick presented a sworn statement to
the Labor committee to the effect that he
bad nothing whatever to do with it.
Resolved, That this matter having been
thoroughly investigated, this (Labor day)
committee attaches no blame whatever to
Mr. Quick, and believes him not guilty
of the serious charges preferred against
Following is Mr. Q lick's affidavit,
sworn to before J. B. Oakleaf, notary
To whom it man concern, and mora particularly
to the Labor day commute: Greeting:
I am lofoimed and know it to be a
fact, that a bojeott is ordered on me by
the various labor organizations of this
city, for the reason, it is alleged,, that I
was a parly in prosecuting those who had
the Labor day celebration in charge for
selling liquors on the picnic grounds, and
that I was instrumental in getting an in
dictment against the sellers.
In the first place, I want to assert
that I am not guilty of the above
charge, in any manner or form; that I
had no band whatever in the prosecu
tion, nor did I lend any assistance, in
any manntr, to the same, and further-,
more I had not been spoket, to by any
one on the subject, regard1 g the said
prosecution, and all that I kjow regard
ing the same is what I have seen and read
in the daily papers, and what I have
learned by talking with the various mem
bers of the above named committee. I
was not aware that any steps were being
taken by anyone to procure an indictment
or to prosecute the sellers above named,
in any manner. If I am to suffer for acts
done by others and of which I am entire
ly innocent, in every sense of the word,
it is wrong, and I know that you do not,
nor does anyone, want me to suffer for
acts done by others, and of wBich I am
innocent. I hope that you will thorough
ly investigate this matter so that I need
not be held to blame for an act, or acts,
done by others, of which I am innocent.
I ask to remain yours respectfully.
B. H. Quick.
The Dispatch adds:
We are informed by a member of the
committee that there was really no boy
cott proclaimed, but that the general un
derstanding among the labor organiz i
tions interested that Mr. Quick was in
strumental in securing the indictment,
may have had a bad effect upon bis busi
ness. Krlshtand Witty.
Without making any pretention to dra
matic excellence. "The Devil's Editor,"
which was presented last night for the
first time at the Park theatre, is a very
clever entertainment. It is one of those
nondescript productions nowadays so
popular, possessing just enough of a
story to afford excuse for the appearance
of the players, and in its general compo
sition strongly reminded one of the "Tin
8oldier." "A Bbttle of Ink." "A Rag
Baby," and other creations. "The Devil's
Editor" may safely be assured of a pros
perous career. What slight thread
of the dramatic the play possesses
is ingeniously woven while the dia
logue is bright and witty. The songs, of
which there is an abundance, deal with
familiar subjects, and, being catchy, are
likely to prove popular. Tne company is
admirably equipped for the varied ds
mands imposed upon it. Alice Harrison
contributes the best of the little dramatic
talent required, and also sings and dances
with her old time attractiveness. Sheri
dan and Flynn, who are responsib'e for
the Mc Ginty song, furnish some new songs
of tbe same order and an unlimited, fund
of humor. The rest of the cast is . quite
up to the best average. Adequate stage
mounting gives tbe finishing to a really
bright and interesting performance. L

THE NEW ELECTION LAW.
A School far laatraeileiarthe Voter la
the Reeeat Htatatary Previsions
The last session of the legislature gave
tbe state of Illinois a new law regulating
the method of casting the suffrages of
citiisns, it being substantially the Aus
tralian plan. It is a complex method of
voting, entirely new to our people, and
on its first use is subject to some misun
derstanding both in the vote and in the
counting. It possesses great advantages,
however, in its secrecy, placing tbe full
responsibility of bis choice on every voter
and preventing all possibility Of the bully
ragging of workingmen. Tbe Moline
Republican-Journal suggests that an ar
rangement be effected by both parties,
acting jointly, for conducting the form of
an election at some convenient point by
which representatives of every ward may
be educated in the new form of casting
the ballot and making the count.
Such an experiment could be made
nearly free of expense. The use of
some suitable place for holding a sample
election is not difficult to secure, and tbe
printing of tbe ballots is inexpensive. All
candidates to be voted for are placed on
one ticket. Tbe ticket is large, and its
great array of names is confusing. Ev
ery elector has to educate himself to the
idea. It is simple in theory, but not al
ways so plain in practice. It would be
a great gain for the smooth; running of
the first election under the law if voters
could be in a measure accustomed to the
proceedings before a regular election
But if the casting of the votes is com
plex. the ascertaining of the result of the
voting is rx.uch more so. It requires the
most painstaking work of the counting
clerks and officers, and is a long and la
borious undert&kibg. New questions
come up at every step, and it is a puzzle
at first to know what should and what
should not be done. Hence it is impor
tant that the officials and clerks oa whom
the duty of conducting tbe election is
likely to fall use every metns to imform
themselves in advance. This can be done
by tbe plan proposed.
The smooth running of the u:.w law
cannot be expected on tbe first trial with
nut making a special effort like this to
mute its intricacies known and secure a
uniform practice on certain of its details
The means indicated above are important
to this end, and wholly practicable.
