The .Sosrre from which McConochie Lnt
et Kndopiemeut ('omps
The latest contributor to the
columns of the McConochie organ
writes his initials in accordance with
his ideas of public improvements.
He adopts the style of the China
man and subscribes himself from rijfh!
to loft. His impressions of what
agencies are responsible for public
improvements are thus evinced as
contrary to the modern American
way of doing. In short the same idea
that would attribute Rock Island's
advancement to the mayor alone, to
the exclusion of the council and the
cooperative efforts of the Improve
ment association, and who, while
thus setting up such convictions,
is lending all his energies and inge
nuity to the cause of his long-time
friend and the backer of the mayor in
his efforts to thwart the extension of
those improvements that are attrib
uted to the mayor alone. Thus
"S. D. L." is today doing a double
service, for his long time friend, . 'apt.
Hobinson in his newspaper contribu
tion and likowisoin his efforts in court
to block the Twentieth street paving
extension, the first decided opposi
tion in fact that has been made to
our present tyst,m of popular im
provements. lolii lKtuble Duty.
In this wise the same cunning
hand that has so often sought to
control anil sway the public thought
in Rock Island, and shape public
policy so that it will favor his par
ticular ends is once more manifest,
while in the double capacity of editor
and lawyer, the energies of --S. 1.K."
are enlisted in his behalf. There are
people in Rook Island who w ill not
bo surprised either that the columns
of the Union are at the disposal of
anything "S. I). E." may choose to
contribute, nor would thev have been
surprised had thev appeared as edi
torial sentiment, much as they did
during the time mat naper was so
free to express itself as on the attempt
to secure rival ferrv franchises and
durinir which period the mayor was
a f refiuent caller at the office of "S
I). E." and at the parlors of the Hock
Island National bank.
However, as to the comments of
S. D. K..'' on the relations of th
mavor to public improvements, and
those of the Auci s tu public improve
ments. It is tpiite refreshing as :
matter of course to have tne views on
these two subjects of one who has been
so prominently identilied with all as
S.I). E." has. and now is. Hecause bv
the merest accident Mr. McConochie
has been mayor during the progress
nock Island has made in street im
provements., it does not stand that he
and he alone has furthered them.
I he full extent of w hat the mavor
has done has been to approve of the
ordinances providing tor such im
provements, which ordinances were
made possible of adoption through
the purchase of our street car lines
by outside capitalists, and through
the firmness of the council, encour
aged by the Improvement associa
tion in taking the matter properly in
hand. "S. 1. E. " has been careful
to avoid giving any credit either to
tin; council or the Improvement as
sociation in regard to all these
public improvements in his anx
ietv to r-ay something moan
about the Aiiiii s. Ho perhaps still
had in mind the spectacle of Aid. Mc
C'onochie rising in his scat in the
council chamber and sarcastically al
luding to "that mutual admiration
society over on tin; corner."' as refer
ring to the Improvement association,
of which Mr. Meilill was then secre
tary, and which was preparing the
preliminaries for the paving and oth
er improvements which the council
in its capacity took up so thoroughly
and so well afterward.
A special Easter service will be
held at the First M. E. church next
Sundav morning. It will be given
under the head of '-What the First
Methodist church of Rock Island is
doing in obedience to the command
of Our Risen Lord." presented in
two parts: Part 1, "What Are We
Doing at Home?" told bv the presi
dents of the various bodies in the
church which have for their object
the interests of the local church.
Part II. "What Are We Doing
Abroad?" told by representatives of
the different organizations in the
church which have for their object
the advancement of the cause of
Christ abroad, followed by the cere
mony of the unveiling of the cross.
The programme will be interspersed
with beautiful Easter music bv the
chorus choir and special mixed and
male quartettes, lhe church will be
beautifully decorated, and a cordial
invitation is extended to all.
The Union's talk about mud sling-
in' is indeed amazing as applied to
the Audi's. Let him that is without
sin, it has been said, cast the first
stone, lhe Akgi's ueues the Union
to point a single instance where this
pajer has resorted to mud slinging.
It has maue no anacK upon tne
mayor's personal character or allud-
d to it in any lorm, nor does it pro-
iKise to. It has exposed and criti
cised his public and political acts
and published repeated evidences of
his duplicity, treachery and betrayal
as regards his official and political
onduct. The Union on the contrary
has made the most contemptable in
sinuations about Mr. Medill, and
without the least foundation at that,
having acknowledged in each case
that its remarks were based purely
Tim Mayor's ThoaghtfalneM for 'a Kela
ttve mud What It Coat.
Mayor McConochie is partial to
Miller, and in return Miller is partial
to the mayor, as for instance: Dur
ing two months last winter one of the
most important beats in the city
that of the C. R. I. & P. was with
out an officer. It so happened that
the patrolman on that beat, who was
laid up eight weeks with sickness is
a brother-in-law to his honor, and in
consequence, the chief of the police
department, saw no occasion to make
any particular note of his fur
lough, and the x pay roll shows
no omission. There is no dispo
sition to assail an officer who is so
unfortunate as to be sick, Vut the
tax payers do not contribute their
money that it may be spent in keep
ing relatives in paying positions
while an entire end of the city is left
every night for two months without
police protection of any kind.
When the people in that end of the
city become aware of how they were
denied police protection they will no
doubt more than ever determine to
put an end to the third term aspira
tions of McConochie and Miller.
Kutminjr. Our Own Husiiiesft.
Because the Union permits its col
umns to le used as a dumping ground
for all the refuse and abuse that
anonymous correspondents may de
sire to throw into a campaign, and be
cause t he mayor is just now himself
directing the course of that sheet, it
imagines outside sources other than
the staff of the Aiiiiisarc responsible
for what it contains. It therefore
blames Mr. Medill for not shaping the
policy of the Akki'S to suit "S. 1).
K.' and the rest of the McConochie
crowd. In reply to this, let the Ak
tiis assure the Union that not Mr.
Medill or any other person not con
nected with the Ak;i s is responsible
for what it contains. This paper is
not run subject to the dictation ot
candidates or outside influences. It
conducts its campaigns as far as
it is concerned. in accordance with
its own best judgment and
is reaily to verify all that it pub
lishes. It welcomes communications
fn any subject, but does not propose
to make a practice of surrendering
the editorial chair to correspondents,
and no communication is published
but what the name of the writer is
known to the editor. Just now the
Ai;;rs is fighting MeConoehioism in
all its forms. It knows whereof it
speaks at all times and not more so
than when it says that the masses of
the people are with us and that T. J
Medill is to be Rock Island s next
Another Campaign Canaril.
One of the arguments that is being
quietlv circulated bv the Millcrites
to damage Mr. Medill. they having
failed in their non-resident asser
tions, is to the effect that he is not
property holder. For the benefit of
those who may chance to be misl
bv those ridiculous statements it
may be said that Mr. Medill together
with W. S. Knowlton owns one of the
most substantial business blocks in
the city, located on .second avenue
and Fifteenth street, and which last
year was remodeled and rebuilt bj
them being valued at $S.OiM. In
addition to this he owns t wo lots upon
onojof w hich is a house of modern do
sign, in South Park and also 24 lots
just across the Moline line. lhe as
sertion that he is not a property hold
er is about on a par with the balance
of the opposition's campaign stock in
Mud in the Seventh Ward.
Ruck Islanp. 111., March 81. Ei
itok AiiGt s: It is unjust that the
Union should sling so much mud at
rhe democratic candidate of the
Seventh ward. Mr. Bein is a man of
exceptionaoie qualities, eminenwv
able to creditably represent tne ward
in the council and will do so beyond
a itouut. air. tsein owns ins nome
where he resides, the report circu
lated bv the friends of the republi
can candidate, notwithstanding. He
is interested in the ward, a progres
sive man, and will poll more repub
lican votes than anv candidate that
ever made the race. As a republi
can and in the best interests of the
ward I shall vote for Mr. Bein and
advise all the rest to do so.

"I made no such remark, that the
mayor's statement of my case in yes
terday's Union was a manly and
straig'htforward one." said Water
works Superintendent Murrin to an
Akgi's reporter today. "What I did
say when approached by a Union rep
resentative in regard to the mayor's
statement was that 'it was all right.'
I did not say that I had heard many
favorable comments, as I am credited
with having said. I have not dis
cussed with anyone, the matter of the
mayor's action as regards Mr. Reddig
and myself. Of course, as matters
have so shaped themselves that I
have not been disturbed. I ought to
say it was all right.'" And the su
perintendent smiled significantly.

lo attribute the improvements
Rock Island has made in the past live
years to McConochie is as ruliculou
as to give him credit for the advance
ment of our sister cities. Moline
and Davenport have made. The
purchase of the street railways of the
three cities was the starting xint of
all the improvements which McCono
chie has taken upon himself the
credit of. It is generally conceded
that but for the substitution of
double for single tracks thus reliev
ing the first burdens of pavement, the
property holders would have made
more remonstance than they did at
the start. Once commenced the
pavement has been extended to all
the ends of the city, and the improve
ment became so popular that people
clamored for it, irrespective of the
part the street car company took of
the expense. In short the pavement
has done its own talking since the
first was put in.
