H. H. Matlock, Superintendent of tbe
Central Union Telephone comptny, wbo
with other officials of the company, was in
Rock Island yesterday, called at Tbs
Argus effice last evening to explain some
of the causes of the unsatisfactory condi
tion cf the service to which The Argus
Las made extended reference or late.
"We realize the service is faulty," Mr.
Matlock said, "and we are doing our best
to remedy it. We know our patrons are
Buffering and we are endeavoring to
eliminate the trouble. What is more, we
propose to accomplish the improvement
if it can be done by any appliance or ex
pert The noise on the wires of the
local exchange, we think, has for tbe most
part disappeared, but there is still dis
cord on the trunk lines. The local ser
vice was interrupted here during the put
ting in of improvements, such as the
cable etc., and I don't think there wi'.l be
any further complaint with reference to
it. Now we are devoting our attention
to the trunk lines. We have been exper
imenting wi.h a device today and think
if you will call up Moline you will note
the change." Tbe reporter accepted tbe
suggestion and it was observed that con
versation could bej carried on clearly and
"Now" Mr. Matlock continued, "we are
merely txptrimtDting today, and the
appliance will be taken oS tonight, and
doubtless other mssns of attaining the
end so much desired to the traak lines
will be tried. When our experts deter
mine upon the superior contrivance
it will be adopted and if one thing fails
another will be tried until asceptable
solution of tbe difficulty is arrived at.
"We are not surprised that there should
be complaint," the superintendent said,
in conclusion. "Oar lines to Moline
and Davenport our trunk lines, as 1
have described them, are not giving sat
isfaction, owing to their close proximity
to tbe electric light and street railway
power wires, but we propose to n medy
the trouble at any cost. We have al
ready expended a great deal of money
for improvement of the service, and we
will not stop spending money until we
get trie system in Ue condition we want
it and as tte public wants it."

Tbe Rock Island Union has come out
in a lengtbv editorial advocating the can
didacy of W U. Gest tor nominal! n for
the office of attorney general on the re
publican Btate ticket next year It savs
the desire for Gest's nomination "is so
general as to be practically universal
among tbe republicans with whom we
have conferred." "Mr. Gest has lone
been regarded as one of the soundest ard
ablest attorney practicing at tbe bar of
our state." "No lawyer in I linois is bet
ter equipped to fill tbe position of attor
ney general. These are specimens of
adulation taken from the Union's article.
We doubt, however, if tbe republic
cans, eyen if his political strength had
not been so seriously shattered as it was
by bis overwhelming defeat last fa'l.
would deBire Gest's candidacv. He is
not only weak politically, but has never
shown any partirnlar brilliancy that anys
one knows of.
Tnere is a mystery about the Uaion's
style of politics that needs explanation.
With plenty of good, able timber at hand,
it always selects that which is poorest.
It put up Crawford. It put UDSlereeon.
It has proposed candidate after candidate
who has proved a disgrace to their partyl
it now passes oy sucu men in its own
burg as Wilhsm Jackson and Judge Ira
Wilkinson, wbo are men of recognised
ability, and selects for a high office one
who is neither politically strong nor men
Tbe Moline republicans say tbey are
Bick and tired of this style of politics,
which in the long tun is weakening tbeir
party. It is fair to assume that a good
many republicans outside Moline also
feel much the same way. Tbey are pray
ing for df liverance from that style of pol
itics which seeks to gratify tbe ambition
of one man at the expense of tbe party.
