Andrew Carnegie is quoted as saying
that a man never gets rich by working
himself, but by having others work for
him. Mr. Carnegie means, of course, as
the Peoria Herald rightly interprets, that
the way to get rich is to be a protected
manufacturer, have protected laborers
work for you, aud then pocket their pro
tection and Tours too.
The statistician is at work. He finds
that the Methodists in conference at
Omaha represent an estimated member
ship of 4.980.240. It is the largest pro
testant church in the country. The Bap
tists are a close second, having 4,292.291
as their membership. In the world are
20.000,000 Episcopalians, 16.900,000
Methodists, 15,200,00 Roman Catholics,
11,000,000 Presbyterians and 8.600.000
A farmer near Bloomington proposes
to make hard roads by simply hardening
the substance of which the roads are
originally composed. He claims to have
discovered some years ago, a process by
which common black soil may be burned
hard or vitrified, just as railroad ballast
is made from gumbo and fire clay. He
states that soil he thus treated has form
ed the bed of a highway for a short dis
tance at his home for many years, that it
has proven to have the highest excellence
for that purpose.
After the meeting of the democratic
state executive committee held in Chicago
on Monday, the question of who was
likely to be chosen national committee
man was discussed. The News-Record
says "the names of Ben Cable, John A.
King, F. H. Winston and Delos P.
Phelps were favorably mentioned. The
general impression was that Mr. Cable
would be the choice of the delegation."
It is unnecessary to say that The Argus
is for Mr. Cable, and believes further,
that the good sense of the delegation
from Illinois to the national convention,
will lead to his unanimous selection for
the important position.
In this morning's Union appears a
call for the republican convention of the
Eleventh congressional district. The con
vention Is to be held in Rock Island Thurs
day July 7th, and the Union is gratified to
make this announcement and says: "all
eyes are turned hitherward for the
candidate." Then the morning organ
pouiB forth its anguish again oyer that
terrible calamity of 1890 and holds that
"The republicans of Rock Island county
have felt it becoming in them to defer
to the wishes of the other counties.
as they should in time develop, and if
they should crystalize on a lower end
candidate to join heartily in his nom
ination. Mr. Chandler, Col. Marsh, Mr.
Robert Moir and others have been
favorably mentioned only to find
that they do not wish . to make
the race, and that the sentiment
positive from the first, has grown stead
ily with the lapse of time, that the fight
of 1892 should be to reverse the result of
1890. and pluck a glorious victory from
an unfair, undeserved and unexpected
defeat. As in other districts similarly
swept by the democratic blast the repub
licans are turning with undiminished con
fidence and a set purpose to their tried,
true and able servants, like Cannon and
Gear, who do not fail them, so the re
publicans of the Eleventh district are
looking to Oest. Our able, influential
ex-congressman is in no sense
a candidate, and his friends, in
deference to his wishes, have scrupu
lously refrained from entering into an
aggressive campaign to secure the re
i nomination which be so eminently de
serves. But if the republicans of Rock
Island county should see fit to present his
name to the congressional convention
and thus invite the nomination which
the settlement ot the district teems to de
mand, we are confident that he would
enter open the campaign with the vigor
and enthusiasm which overcame a big
adverse majority in 1886, and achieved
anot ler decisive triumph in 1888."
How mysteriously strange it is indeed
that the republicans of Rock Island
county should have so much trouble in
getting Mr. Gest to again sacrifice him
self. Particularly so is this surprising
when it is recalled how earnestly the
party, through its organ here, advised the
republicans ef the lower end to bring out
their candidates and take the nomi
nation this year A few evenings
ago, however, the federal office
holders ef the city held a conference and
decided, notwithstanding all previous in
vitations and responses, to call the con'
venti in in Rock Island, and to put Gest
forward in order to strengthen their own
positions at the front in the event of Har
rison's reelection. How the local aspir
ants who depend upon Gest for federal
pap v ill reconcile their present attitude
to their position a short time ago, will be
hard to determine. At any rate it seems
to bi Gest or nobody with them, and
there don't seem to be anybody else who
wants the nomination very badly. But
how Vie republicans of the ether end of
the dhtrict will enjoy the horse play of
Boss Wells et al is not so easily under
Hluine and Harrinou.
Grei.t efforts are being made to create
the impression in the public mind that
there it an understanding between Presi
dent Harrison and Secretary Blaine to
the eff:ct that if the secretary is a candi
date bt lore the Minneapolis convention
the president will not be. Apparently
the friends of Mr. Blaine are trying to
weaseii the hold of President Harrison
upon tie delegates pledged to him with a
.ew of eventually stampeding the con
vention to Mr. Blaine. The editor of
tbe later Ocean feels authorized
to say that there is no such understand
ng between the president and
Mr. Bake; and, in fact, that there
is no understanding whatever between
them it regard to the Minneapolis con
vention. Whatever the president may
at one time have thought on this matter.
be now feels that, in justice to friends
who have so cordially and earnestly sup
ported his candidacy, he could not with
draw even though that might be his per
sonal preference. It may just as well
be understood that the contest is too far
advanced for the president to withdraw
and the name of Benjamin Harrison will
be presented to the Minneapolis conven
tion w lelher Mr Blaine's is or not.
While tae president did not in the begin
ning actively seek renomiaation. be can
not now, after the favorable action of so
many stiles and individuals, decline the
contest forced upon him.

Mrs. Fawler, of this city, was married

strange as it may seem, five of them died
exactly two years from their marriage
day. Her present husband has been sick
for the last four months with chronic
jaundice, and was given up by four of our
best physicians; as a last resort he , began
using Sulphur Bitters, and yesterday told
our reporter that they bad saved his life,
