William McEaiiy was called upon and
LIGHT ON THE WOKKIXQ OF THE NEW BAL
In his opinion it v ould be much safer for
each candidate to get at least 25 signa
tures to his noaination petitions. This
would avoid any chance of trouble
which might be made on the ground that
the democrats had no candidate in the
field at the last general election which
was the judicial e ection last June. He
also suggested tht.t the aldermanic candi
dates also fortify ThemselveB with signa
tures, which would r-quire 5 per cent of
the ward voters. "Of course," said Mr.
McEoiry, in closing, ,-no difficulty mny
ever arise, but it is better to be prepared
for any emergency."
After some discussion and a few re
marks from Chairman Welch the convene
George B. Browner, ibe candidate for
Buperyisir, is the present assistant super
visor and his pbenominal run of two
years ago is sufficient evidence of his
popularity. His record while upon the
board has amply repaid tbe confidence
imposed in h.m, and bis election is as
sured. George Lamont, who has been
nominated for assistant supervisor, is
well known, in looked upon' as just the
man for the place, and will no doubt be a
member of tbe new board. P;ter Phile
bar, the other candidate for assistant su
pervisor, is a printer, and is popular with
all classes. He is young and energetic,
a man of sound judgment, and will
be among the leaders in the race.
L C Blanding, the party's nominee
for township collector, is one of tbe most
popular candidates in tbe field. He is a
young man f exceptional ability, well
qualified to look after the duties of that
office, and is a sure winner. T. J. Me
dill, Jr., who was nominated for assessor
by acclamation. The Argcs regrets to
state baa today declined, and a meeting
of tbe city-township committee has been
callei for tomorrow evening to fill tbe
vacancy caused by bis declination.

refused to investigate as to tbe cause o f

reaching, againBt Tce A nous for its ex
posure of what the people had a right
to know should have accompanied Tru
ant Officer Kimball of tbe Rock Island
public schools to the dive of bis clif nt
early this afternoon. Had he done so be
would have found that his sense cf smell
would have conveyed to his luind what
he was not willing his sense of sight
should do for him.
Mr. Kimball went to the place to learn if
there were not schoolchildren there uoddr
the compulsory education law of the
state. Mr. Kimball found tint of the
twoyonngtr children there was a boy
who had just passed the age of 14. while
there was a little girl eight years of age
As te her, he informed the mother she
must be sent to school. His admanitioa
was met with defiance on the part of the
mother, who informed Mr Kimball
she would like to see a law that would
compel her to send her child to school if
she did not want to. The officer, how
ever, carefully explained that the law was
intended for tbe child's own good and
that it must be obeyed, and then tbe
mother altered htr conduct.
Mr. Kimball was seen by an Argcs
reporter soon efter coming eul of the place
of business of Tomalley & Co., and
questioned as to how the surroundings
impressed him. "I did not go very far
in," he said, "and in fact had no desire
to, for the odor was not altogether
"Did you go into the house at all?"
"Oh, yes, I stepped inside but not into
the living apartments."
"The odor which emanated was pretty
strong, was it?"
"My good gracious yes! It wis actu
ally sickening . "
"What did it remind you of?"
"It came about as near to the smell of
stale meat in the process of boiling as any
thing I can think of . It might not have
been that, but it smelted mighty like it,
and was sickening at any rate."
"Did you observe the surroundings? '
"Well, I looked about a little."
How were you impressed?"
"The hall had the appearance of hay
ing been quite recently swept out. but
it did not look as if it had been done by
one particularly experienced, nor did the
floor look as if it had been subjected to a
sweeping operation as a part of an estab
lished routine of the household."
"How about the general appearance of
the house so far as you saw it?"
"It was dirty. It could not be other
wise, I don't think. It is a dirty place. It
has been so for years "
