AS TO VINTON.
Should be Defeated as a Matter
of Principle. ,
VOTE THEEE FOB MULLIGAN,
The Independent Candidate Hu Violated
all Roles of Political Obligation and no
Keeord aa a Public Offioer Excuses Ills
Present Attitude Poor Gratitude for
What the Party Has Done for Him.
Mr. V;nton is partdiug and ctrcufatiae
hia record as a member of the last legis
lature as affording sufficient grout d for
his present candidacy, and the circom
stancis attending it. No matter what
Mr. Vinton's rtcotd. it . does not furnish
an excuse for his treachery to his party
Hsd it been his purpose to stand on hi-
record in the present campaign, regara
less of the understanding under which le
was nominated by the democratic prtf,
had it been his intention to demand a re -elf
ectioa this time on the strength of his rec
ord as a legislator, irrespective of all cir
cumstances and conditions, he should
never have gone before the democratic
legislative cocvention as a candidate.
But having submitted himself to the will
of tbe convention he was bound by every
principle of honor, politically and mor
ally to abide by th reeult, to say nothing
of his previous obligations to tbe party
those attending bis nomination two years
lie is Alone Responsible.
Mr. Vinton is alone responsible for his
candidacy. His assertion that his course
is sustained by the democratic state cen
tral committee is without foundation.
There is not a particle of ground for such
a position on Mr. Vinton span. His
candidacy under such circumstances is an
insult to tbe state central committee.
The s ate central committee of no party
would encourage or advise a bolter from
the ranks of his parly. Mr. Vinton can
not lay the responsibility of bis position
to the democratic state central commit
tee or to any one other than himself. He
is iLdiiidually at.d solely responsible for
the position he is assuming, aad he alone
will suffer the consequences.
Will be Snowed Under.
There is no doubt as a matter of course.
but that Mr. Vinton will be defeated. It
is tbe duty of democrats to make it a
point to see that be is defeated. He has
cot only chown himself shamefully dis
loyal to his party, but has displaced poor
gratitude to that party for wnat it has
done tor him.
It is tbe paramount and important
duty of democrats to cast three votes for
J. H. Mulligan for representative. It is
the duty of democrats everywhere in the
Twenty first district to repudiate Vin
ton's candidacy. All democrats should
le to their party and its pledge and
in us particular case, nowhere more
than in Rock Island county and in Mo
line, where Vinton is doing his hardest
work. In that city the party should sup
plant 1 possible evidences of clanishness
by al!r. i-minded appreciation of princi
ple and stand by the ticket.
Has Stubbornly Persisted.
Mr. Vinton has been given abutd-int
opportunity to withdraw from the field
and support the ticket of the party which
supported him two years ago. Many
and representative eemocrats have ap
pealed to him and urged him not be
guilty of such a mistake on his part, such
an exhibition of base ingratitude. The
Argus has withheld public censure until
the last moment hoping that he would
reason with himself and see his dutv
But he h is stubbornly, selfishly, without
regard to prt lea' y or tbe wishes of
bis friends insisted upon the course be is
pursuing, lie can thank himself for the
