The School Kleet ioii-
The school election, as was antici
pated, is passing oil' very quietly,
there being no candidates but the two
pushed forward by the A. P. A. The
women are taking an unusual inter
est in the election, but the vot
in" is all one way. A num
ber of bugaboo stories about
dark horses are being circulated
bv the members of the A. P. A. who

imaginary enemies. It has even gone
so far that the names of two citizens
have been circulated as being candi
dates, who were to be sprung at 3
o'clock for a still hunt, but nothing
has been developed so far nor is there
likely to be.

Success of the Trl-City Klectric Company
The Tri-City Electric Sprinkler
company's car has now been running
a sufficient length of time in Rock
Island to demonstrate its merit and
practicability, and the general public
satisfaction that is expressed over the
methods employed is evidence enough
that it is just what the three cities
needed and that it" should be en
couraged in every way possible.
Some of the most apparent advan
tages over t he old qdans are letter
work, more frequent service, Sunday
sprinkling and cheaper rates. The
com pa n v should receive such encour
agement from the city as will result
in the putting on of another car and
establishing additional wagon routes,
to the end that the lower end of the
city as well as Seventh avenue. Sev
enteenth arid. Nineteenth streets may
be sprinkled, while down town Garn
sey as well as Spencer square should
have the advantage of the. service.
It is to be hoped the ity Will offer
such enducements to the company as
may serve to increase the excellent
service now provided, rather than to
A Novel Machine.
The car at present in use is at
tracting much attention from visitors
to the city, and the company is re
ceiving great credit for introducing
so novel and popular a machine in
the three cities in advance, it might
be said, of any other city in the
eountrv. with t he except ion of Louis
ville, which is the home of the in
ventor. The fact may also be men
tioned of the great improvement
over the old way of sprinkling with
a waixon. the saving to the wear oT
the streets a well as the much better
looking piece of machinery used for
Ihe work than the old wagon.
The car is equipped with a Wesi
iiiiXhouse, single reduction, 2i"'-horse
power motor, and air brake attach
ment eontribuing fuiet and ease in
running, and making it possible to
stop the car very quickly and lesson-,
inir t he danger of accidents. Theeom
panv has already expended a large
amount of money in getting the
necessary equipment so that the three
cities might show to be in advance
of other cities this Columbian year,
and some considerable risk was taken
in making the outlay as thecompanv
was not certain that the thing would
be a success, for fear Jhat water
could not be taken on fast enough to
enable the sprinkling car to keep out
of the way of the passenger cars, but
the car can be tilled with 2,000 gal
lons of water in less than two min
utes, and only neglect or inefficiency
on the part of the men in charge of
it, will delay the regular traffic of
the street railway lines, which the
sprinkler com pa-v guarantees not to

The ClerkH Meet inc.
Last evening at the Rock Island
house was the time set for the joint
meeting of the business men aud
clerks "for the purpose of agreeing
upon an hour for closing the stores
during the heated term. The clerks
were therein force, but only one bus
iness man showed up and conse
quently the clerks held a meeting of
their own. The matter was talked
over, and it then developed that the
business men or several of them, at
least had agreed among themselves
previously that the hour should be 8
o'clock the same as last year hence
their absence from the meeting. It
was then decided to issue the yellow
window cards indicating the hour for
closing and distribute them among
the merchants ready for use July 5.
After some discussion the feeling
seemed to prevail that a clerks' union
should be organized, and accordingly
a committee was appointed to look
up the matter of a constitution as is
had in other cities, and other matters
pertaining to its organization. It is
purposed to include clerks in every
branch of business in the new union.
