The public has become 'familiar
with the dual methods of McCono
ehio as regards the relations between
himself ami Schroeder in the matter
of the mayoralty nomination on the
republican ticket. The MeC'onochie
duplicity with reference ' to Street
Superintendent Harris has
full v explained. I?oth of
currences are sutheient to
true idea of McCoiiochie's
disrejjard honor or
cal nature, and his utter
for the obligations of
friendship when considered in con
nection with his own political ad
Duality on all Occasion.
The mayor's duality on all occa
sions hasjfoiind hi moot .and no one who
at all familiar with his methods po
litically and as a public official, can
entertain the least confidence in him
or his ways. His double deal in r
tendcivies have been no more clearlv
fthbwrrthan as applied to the office of
health commissioner. two years
ajr when MeConoehie was a candi
date for reelection he made certain
pledges that in the event of his suc
cess he would appoint Dr. C B. Kin
yon health commissioner. After the
election MeC'onochie called on Dr.
Eyster. told him that he was obliged
to appoint Dr. Kinyon. but that per
sonally he would prefer to appoint
him. (Dr. Eyster.) Tne mayor t here
upon suggested to the latter the
policy of preventing Dr. Kinvon's
confirmation. He suggested certain
alderman who could be prevailed up
on to oppose Dr Kinvon and said
that failinir of conlirnialion id the at-
pointmentof Dr. Kinyon he would be
perfectly at liberty to name Dr. Ey
iJeeet ion oT tr Kinyon.
Then joinj to Dr. Kinvon, MeCon
oehie toid him how Dr. Eyster was
working among certain of the alder
men to defeat his confirmation, and
assured him that while he would be
only too happy to appoint him. he
was fearful that Dr. Eyster. who was
leaving no stone unturned to retain
the office, was workinsr to defeat his
confirmation, and that of course if he
(Dr. Kinyon) was not confirmed he
could not do reasonably otherwise
than reappoint Dr. Eyster. Having
thus squared himself with both Drs.
Eyster and Kinyon. as he supposed,
he awaiti'd the results. When the
council met lie appointed Dr.Kinyon.
The vote of the council on the confir
mation stood 4 to 4. and the mayor
stated he would not cast the deciding
vote to confirm his own appoint
ments. I hereupon lie appointed lr
Eyster, who was confirmed.
Deception of Ir. i;yter.
The council had no sooner ad
journed that night than he hunted up
Dr. Eyster, heartily congratulated
hini on his conlirnialion. told him he
was his favorite all along, and that it
was a source of gratification to him
to know that the council had failed to
sustain Dr. Kinvon's appointment.
The next day he met Dr. Kinyon. ex
tended his sympathies and regrets to
him on the fact that he had not been
endorsed lv the council and told him
it was a put up job on the part of Dr.
Eyster and his friends to prevent his
(Kinvon's) confirmation, and put him
in a position where could not consis
tently do otherie than name Eys
ter. The I'rlile of Mrfonorhie Again.
Officer (ilass. the mayor's pet, made
a painful display of his qualifications
as a peace officer on Sat urday after
noon. A man who had been drinking
considerably was doing some loud
talking on Moline avenue near Thirty-first
street, when the pride of the
force happened along. The citizen
who was doing the talking made some
remark about not being arrested,
when Glass walked up to him dclib-
erateh- and struck him with his list
on the jaw. The man staggered
away, and the officer instead of either
arresting him or letting him alone
entirely, told his friends to take him
home. The man after being assault
ed in this manner by the officer be
came abusive, and a clinch followed,
in which there was a mixed up affair,
but he was finally landed in the po
lice station. There is no call for an
officer to display his pugilistic pow-
rs before he even attempts to arrest
man, no matter what the circum
stances mar be.

Lost His Life For a Bet.
Count Edward Romero, one of the
wealthiest men 1 in Portugal, recently
lost his life through a bet. He had

a lady rider at the circus, which con
sisted in falling head over heels to the
ground from the horse while it walked
on its hind legs. The horse, however,
fell backward on the count, who died

Mae" Isn't In It.
Realizing that T. J. Medill's elec
tion is a foregone conclusion, the
Union has already comfiienced.it s cus
tomary impudence by suggesting
municipal appointments. Yesterday
morning it proposed John McDarrah
for city marshal. McDarrah, how
ever, will be obliged to disappoint
the Union as he is not looking for any
thing in Rock Island. He is sailing
higher since getting into statepolitics,
and besides that notwithstanding that
Mr. Medill's election is assured, he is
not following the example of his pre
decessor and plastering himself
with ante election pledges.
However, Mr. McDarrah has spoken
himself on the subject:
Rock Island, March 27. Editor of
the Argls. I notice in it's yester
day's issue the Union seeks to compli
ment me by stating that I said that
if Medill was elected I was to be
chief of police. This is untrue. I
hardly know Mr.'Medill, having never
met him more than a couple of times
and have never had any conversation
whatever with him in regard to his
appointments if elected. My' duties
at Springfield occupy my at
tention. anl besides my ambition is
to rise higher instead of to come
down. John McDakkah.

An Important Influence.
One phase of the movement known as
university extension has net received due
attention. What can the system do toward
directing the reading of the young into
Our librarians tells us that it large part
of the reading of the young is novel read
ing. Beyond a certain extent this is an un
deniable evil. Id meeting it two methods
have been used. One the old method
consists in discouraging such reading.
There are still parts of our country under
Puritan influence in which this is the only
method conscientiously used. The result is
a resorting to the street in t he case of boys
and to gossip in the case of girls.
The new method which might also le
called the positive consists in putting into
the hands of the young other reading t-"ti
novels and eliciting a lively interest m it.
This requires an effort, but the end is well
worthy such expenditure of energy and
money. Kate Field's Washington.
The hard weather is favorable to the
study of frost crystals, and I'rofessor Mel
dola has drawn attention to t he lieautiful
arborescent patterns sometimes produced
by frost on our muddy pavements. Snow
and ice crystals, like other crystals, are nor
mally rectangular, but when their free
growth is impeded they nre sometimes cur
vilinear. These curving forms, resembling
vegetation, such as ferns and mosses, ae
also seen in the crystallization of metals
from solutions under the influence of elec
tric current and in the "dendrites" of geol
ogy, an example of which is seen in t he
moss agate. Yv e may add that the abo
rescent figures produced by lightning and
electric sparks are very similar to these.
All these phenomena are connected, in some
way not yet understood, with stresses in the
ether. Xew York Commercial Advertiser.
A Doe Embezzler.
Professor Fontaine of the Lycee at Ver

belonged to the progenitors of our bank
officials who have made their home recent

spending his vacation in Inverness. About
that town they were followed by a dog that
was sent out with a locked box on his neck
to solicit alms for a school. When M. Fon
taine undertook; to put a penny In the box,
the dog caught it in his mouth and ran
away. They followed and saw him enter
a baker's shop, where he bought a bun and
ate it. This was found to be a trick of the
dog, who might fairly be set down as an
embezzler of trust funds. St. Louis Globe
