The Union has resumed the practices
which - characterized and disgraced ita
campaign of a year ago by admitting ir
responsible anonymous communications
making personal attacks on individuals.
It is generally conceded that a man who
attacks another over an anonymous signa
ture in a newspaper will not make the
same accusation to the face of the one
whom he publicly assails in this cowardly
manner, and it is for this reason that
hardly a day passes that The Abgtjs doea
not reject communications of this nature.
The editor f thi8 pajr must know the
name of every one contributing to its
columns in news or comment, and
no one can use thia paper to gratifv
a personal hatred, and shirk the respon
sibility of what he does. It is for this
reason that The Abocs has a contempt
for such methods as the Union practices.
In its issue of yesterday morning it ad
mita a communication signed bv "B.v in
which the ear marks, however, are plainly
discernable and in which a mean, spite
ful and entirely unfounded attack ig
made upon the superintendent of water
works in connection with the burning of
8chool Building No. 6. and udou the
council for refusing to oust the present
incumbent last spring. This is the
purport of the communication, and the
nature of the attack ia too apparent to
need further comment.
It need only be said as a matter of
truth and fairness that Rock Island never
had a more efficient waterworks superin
tendent than the present, and such at
tacks aa the one alluded to are not apt to
have a great deal of weight with thinking

Shippers will be interested in knowing
that the Western Classification Commit
tee some time ago made a regulation to
the effect- that if the ebipper would se
cure the reduced rate on the shipment he
must specify the nature of the risk he
assumes on his gocds.
ln other words, if the railroad compan
ies are to make good dmgps sustaine
by goods in transit they mus. collect more
freight for that risk; varying from 20
per cent of the charges to one full class.
If the shipper is to assume the risk, t e
must specify the dsrmges resulting from
breakage, leakage, fire,' wet or other ac
cident will be assume 1 bv him. If the
railroad company is to insure the goods,
it wants to be paid for it.
If the owner wants the benefit of the
icduced rates, he must state that be as
sumes the risk on ni bill of la ding or
his shipping ticket. Unless he does this

When anvthincr ataarla m. feat nf ftrt
years among a discriminating people like
ujc Americans, it is pretty good evidence,
that there is merit somewhere. The
value of a medicine is beat proved by its
continued use from year to year by the
buio pcisuua ana lamiues, as well aa bv
a steady increasing sale. Far if
medicines have met with auch continued
success and popularity as has mtrked
the introduction and progress of Bran

fifty yeors, are conceded to be the safest
and most effective purgative and blood

That thia ia the result of merit, and
thatBrandreth's Pilla actually perform all
that is claimed for them, is conclusively
proved by the fact that those who regard

who have used them the longest.
