J I:. A DONALDSON. Secretary,
t: Ronat :j, 4. 5 an,i 6 JI atonic Temple,
The first election in Rock Island under
the provisions ot the tew Australian
ballot law of -.he state of Illi
nois is in progress today, and
the requirements which insure sc
crecy, individual responsibility and intel
ligence in voting, are meeting with ex
pressions of satisf iction everywhere. For
the most part the election is proceeding
quietly, although .here are close contests,
particularly in tie Third, Fourth and
Sixth wards. I'rospects were never
brighter for democrats in a city or town
ship election, and indications point not
only to the triumph of the entire town
ticket, but to the majority of the alder
The pell worker is conspicuous .by his
absence in most of the wards, the new
law requiring thst poll workers remain
at least 100 feet from the voting place.
One disgraceful incident of the elec
tion is the active partisan interest taken
by a member of the police force in the
candidacy of an up-tewn alderman who
is standing far reelection. This police
man has made hiaself very officious and
offensive in his electioneering for the al
derman whose protege he is, and has
gone so far as to wager on the result,
and bragged of having bluffed citizens
because they declined to bet with him on
the result of the (lection. If all our po
licemen were to follow the example of
thin individual, who boasts af doing as he
pleases and does so pretty much Rock
Island would htve a force af peace and
law guardians truly to be proud of.
The most contemptible incident of
tbe present campaign was the publish
ing at the last moment of a personal let-
j ter from Robert McOee, formerly of this
city, to John Sullivan, a resident of the
Third ward, in which R. C. Lloyd is the
democratic candidate for alderman. It
was purely a personal letter from Mr.
McOee to a friend as he sup
posed, In wlich he asked him
to exert himself particularly to
bring about Mr. Lloyd's election, but that
friend, instead cf prizing it with becom
ing confidence,gave it publicity. Had Mr.
McGee wished to make the same breach
of confidence by publishing Sullivan's
reply, it would 9how that he not only
promised .to ' work for and support Mr.
Lloyd, but entered into abuse of his po
litical opponent and his friends, and for
whom, strange to say, we now find Sulli
van exerting him self .

Springfield. March 21. A. D.. lRfla
In compliance with the law of the state,
I do hereby designate and appoint Fri
day, the 8th day of April, A. D., 1892, as
Arbor Day. I earnestly request the peo
ple to observe the day "by planting trees,
shrubs and vines, and I especially enjain
the teachers and scholars in our public

day in a suitable and an appropriate
Let an increased interest be manifested
in the planting and protection of forest

homes, highways and public places will
be beautified, and a lasting benefit con
ferred upon the people of our common

set my hand and caused the great seal

DEPARTMENT OF WBUC INSTRUCTION.
SPRrsenKLD, 111., March 21, 1892.
To the county superintendents, teach
ers and pupils of the state greeting:
In conformity with the governor's procla
mation, I take this opportunity of calling
attention to the observance of Arbor Day,
by appropriate exercises in connection
with the planting of trees, shrubs and
flowering plants on the school premises,
thus adding to the beauty and attractive
ness of the schools. The teachers will
perform a patriotic act by implanting in
the minds and hearts of the growing gen
eration a love of the beautiful, and by
teaching the yoath of the state lessons of
humanity to plants as well as to animals.
To protect and cherish whatever we have
of forest and shade trees in our prairie
state is no less a duty and pleasure than
to add to their number, annually. Very
respectfully yours, Hesry Raab,
Supt. Public Instruction.
Neil Burgess' spectacular comedy, "The
County Fair," was presented for tbe first
time in Rock Island at Harper's theatre
last evening. The scenic effects were
very unique and consequently much ad
mired . Tbe company was weak all the
way through, except as to the quartette
singing in the third act, although the pro
duction gives opportunity for some ar
tistic work in tbe comedy line. The
horse race in the last act waB a startling
piece of realism in stage mechanism, and
was exceedingly creditable.

the Arch street theatre this week . Last
