A precipe was filled by S W. Searle
and J T. Kenworthy in tbe office of tbe
clerk of the circuit court yesterday for
suit of James M. Beck against J. W. Pot
ter, publisher of Thb Argus, for $3,000
Tm. A noes is informed by Mr. Searle,
chief counsel for the plaintiff, that the
suit to be began is based on the write-up
of a tomalley establishment in this city,
and appearing in Saturday night's ARGrs,
that hi client is a tomalley man, and he
alleges damages because the nature
o! thj article appearing Saturday
night h is proven detrimental to his night
trade ic the novelty. Ridiculous as it
may seem, Mr. Searle when esked if he
visited the tomalley establishment to
which TnE A kg us had made reference to
learn whether the statement appearing in
this papjr was justifiable, said he had not
looked into it. but he "supposed it had
been clet.ned up before th:s." At any
rate he as in the case "merely as a mt
ter of business "
It is unnecessary for The Argus to
enter into detail in explanation of its po
sition in tLe matter, which to the
public it requirts no defense. The
same statement appearing in connection
with the tr:iele referred to may be re
peated tb it the investigation was made
purely and en'.irjlv in tbe interests of
public health. It was directed without
bias or prejudice. A reporter was dele
gated to visit, a building wherein it was
supposed tbe industry was carried on and
to write ur. his observations without col
oring or exaggeration, lie discharged
the assign nent, and it may be further
said, that the picture which he saw was
not represented in all its revolting details.
The Argu presented the impressions
thus secured as briefly as the story could be
toul.md without any attempt at anything
in tbe line of sensationalism. Pursuing
quite a different policy from that ob
served by the eminent chief counsel fcr
the plaintiff, it made a careful investiga
tion of tbe merits of the case before tak
ing hold of i:. It took no chances of
assuming a filse position, or one of un
fafrnrss toward anyone. It performed
its duty toward the public, stated nothing
but unvarnished facts and has nothing to
retract or regret. It is prepared to verify
everything that has appeared in these
columns, and is ready for trial.

The meeting of the democratic county
committee at the court house at 2 o'clock
this afternoon was called to order by
Chairman T. 8. Silvia, who presided,
while Daniel W. Gould, of Moline, acted
as secretary. It was decided to hold two
county conventions, the first April 14
and tbe primaries on April 9. The fol
lowing resolusion was adopted:
Whereas, The democratic county
committee of Rock Island coanty be
lieve the democratic party, the party of
tbe people, earnestly devoted to their
interests and welfare, and to the growth,
development and advancement of the re
public: and recognizing now, as hereto
fore, that "unnecessary taxation
is unjust taxation," we renew
our adhesion to the principles enun
ciated in the message of President
Cleveland for congress in 18S7 and re
affirmed by the national democratic con
vention in 1883: and recognizing the
eminent abilities as a lender displayed by
John M. Palmer in 1883 and 1890, and
believing that his high character as a cit
izen, statesman and soldier make him an
available candidate for the presidency, we
join the democracy of Cook county in
commending him to the people of the
state and nation; and believing, as we do,
that the record made by John M. Palmer
in his official life is such as to impress
the people that he has the very high
est conception of official duty and
integrity, and feeling assured that with
him as our standard-bearer the electoral
vote of Illinois will be transferred to the
democratic columa, we pledge ourselves
to use all honorable means to secure for
him the nomination for the office of pres
ident; and inasmuch as John M. Palmer
is the true exponent of the doctrine that
"the rights of the pe -pie are safe with
the people," and as he points by precept
ana example to tne tact mat success cm
be attained when and only when the
people take their own affairs into their
own hands, we cordially invite the demo
cratic voters of Illinois to co-operate with
us in the work to which we stand pledged
and in giving public expression, in all
appropriate ways, to their manifest de
sire for the same.

medicines which are sold. It cures diseases
of the blood and skin by removing the poison

supplies good blood and tissue for the wasted
parts. lJon't be imposed on by substitutes,
which are said to be just as good, for it is not
