A GOOD RECORD.
That of Hon. George W. TIntoa in the
least Lf-Kiaiatnrr-YVlll the Xamina.
tion Come ta Hln Aaralaf
The Moline Republican-Journal de
votes a column to a resume of the record
of Hon. George W. Vinton, of that city,
in the last legislature, a record surely to
be proud of, and says: "Though little
has been said concerning the legislative
contest in next fall's campaign, there
seems'to be a strong feeling throughout
Rock Island county in favor of the re
election of Hon. George W. Vinton for
another term as minority representative.
There is a general recognition of the
faithful and conscientious service ren
dered by him during the last session.
Mr. Vinton accomplished much more than
the average legislator, and worked hard
to show his appreciation of the splendid
vote given him at the last elec
tion." The paper reproduces the figures
of the election returns two years ago
showing that his vote was several hun
dred more than that of either of the suc
cessful republican candidates and ssys
"under the present system of representa
tion two republicans ' and one democrat,
who is known as the minority representa
tive, are invuriably chosen." Then it
turns attention to the record made by Mr
Vinton as a legislator and says :
During his term Mr. Vin'on wielded
an influence in the house that was very
unusual for a new member. A glance at
the house journal for 1891 will convince
anyone that Mr. Vinton was anything
but idle in the 37 h assembly. It shows
that he was appointed on several import
ant committees, being chairman of the
public charities committee and a member
of agriculture, manufacturers, militia af
fairs, fish and game and world s fair six
in all. It will show, too, that he was al
ways on the side of the people.
This part of the state needs a hospital
for the insane. Mr. Vinton's measure
appropriating $400 000 was far advanced
and would surely have passed had more
time been granted before adjournment.
Mr Vinton was aut tor of the world's fair
appropriation bill, which passed. His
prominent part in securing the $135,000
appropriation for the militia in the face
of very unfavorable circumstances is a
part of the history of the legislature and
needs no comment. He introduced a bill
covering union labels and trade marks,
whxb was passed. He introduced the
measure ceding the government the via
duct ground at Rock Island, which was
passed. He introduced a bill to exempt
all public highways over 66 feet wide
from taxation, which was lost. He vo
ted for and advocated the penal reforma
tory measure, which was pissed. He
voted for and advocated the stockyards
bill. He voted for and advocated the
week pay bill. He voted for and advo
cated the Australian sys'em of voting.
He voted 'for and advocated the public
hospital tax bill for cities and villages
and many other measures that could be
mentioned did space permit, and was al'
ways found opposing legislation that was
vicious or corrupt.
We feel it no more than an act of jus
tice to say that no representative of tbis
district ever strove harder or with greater
success to serve his constituents; no -withstanding
three months had been
spent in the election of a senator. Mr.
Vinton cast his vote in every one of the
154 ballots forJGeu. Palmer and was one
of his stau ncbest supporters. The farm
ers and laboring people are bis strongest
friends because they know him to be in
corruptible, honorable, upright and ready
to stand on his merits.
