pledge and faith to the subscribers
ot the Rock Island Community
fund. The Sanation Army had the
opportunity to participate in the
Community fund of 1922, to the ex
tent of $2,000, but did not elect to
do so. It will again have the op
portunity to participate In the 1923
Community fund, if it so desires."
"The allowance made tne salva
tion Army, amounting to (2,000,
was in the same ratio as the allow
ance made other participating or
ganizations, in order to keep the
total amount of the entire budget
within the limits of the total
amount of money the committee
thought could be raised,'' Mr. Hilde

ganization la the fund received as
much as it requested in Its budget
The Salvation Army was not de
nied the right to participate, but
refrained from participating of its
own choice. The army participated
in the 1921 fund. In view of the
fact that several other organiza
tions, which contemplated cam
paigns have refrained from doing
so on account of the conditions sur
rounding the Community fund, the
board of directors of the chamber
felt that the Salvation Army should
have done likewise and waited to
participate la the 1923 fund."

damages against the city of East
Moline, for flood waters which he
alleged to have been caused by the
East atollae storm drain project In

occupied the court 10 days. Olson's
salt was for 13.000 damages and
was oae of six started by property
owners and residents along Fif
teenth avenue in the vicinity of
Second street It was believed that
settlement would be effected in the
other cases. . The city, it is report
ed, refused settlement ror suo.
The Jury found the National Con

. Washington, Nov. 29. Republican
leaders predicted passage bf the
administration shipping hill by a
comfortable margin when the house
proceeds to a final vote, not later
than ip.n. today. Although sev
eral changes in the bill were adopt-
. ed yesterday all were offered by
Republicans and rejection of near
ly two score, amendments offered
by Democrats sustained confidence
of a safe margin. ,
, Important among the 'changes
voted yesterday was an amendment
necessitating authorization by con
gress each year of payments from
the merchant marine fund to oper
ators of American ships, this being
viewed not only as doing away with
a permanent application but also
as affording a check on expendi
tures. Other amendments adopted
would exclude from receiving gov
ernment aid concerns operating
ships tor their own benefit, except
where they transport cargoes of
other shippers; withhold govern
ment aid for all voyages on which
liquor was carried, and reduce from
1,000 to 600 gross tons the mini
mum tonnage for sailing vessels
eligible for government aid.
Legality of the procedure
through which township bound
aries of Rock Island are alleged toj
have extended to the ' munclpal
boundaries of the city will go be

The bill is being prepared by
State's Attorney B. S. Bell now
and is ready for filing but it is
likely that with the change in the

mine legality of the action and the
result was that last spring two

Remember That Date!
Come to the
All liberty-loving citizens are urged to keep in mind the unusual date of
the election when the PROPOSED ILLINOIS CONSTITUTION of 1922
is to be submitted to the voters. Turnout! Warn your neighbors to turn
out, even if Christmas shopping be neglected and you have to wade
through drifts of snow. Your rights and your liberties are at stake! Re
member a bare majority fixes this Constitution upon you and your chil
dren for perhaps generations to come. YOUR VOTE MAY BE THE
ONE NEEDED TO DEFEAT THIS CHARTER OF DESPOTISM.
Twelve Reasons why the Proposed New
Constitution Should be Voted Down:
1. The rig-ht of bail, which in all stales is reserved
to the humblest citizen, and which is kept sacred and
inviolate in the constitution we now have is (see Sec. 71
taken away by dropping; from this new draft the words
, : theXonstitutioQ of 1870 which guarantee this rifht.
2. The attoraey-ceheral, on chaires less than of
murder, is empowered in Sec. 8 to ro into any county and
Jail citizens by filinr informations arainst them, upon
htm own judgment or design, without having to ro be
fore any court or submit evidence to a fraud Jury ahow
3. Under Sees. 93 and 132, the state supreme court
is riven absolute powers over the lives and liberties of .
citizens. These provisions open the way to untold op
pression, ineludinr abolition of trial by jury and indefi
nite imprisonment of citizens without executive pardon.
With Sec 89 givinr almost life tenure and vast power
to nine men oa the supreme bench, toe people are made
helpless. Section 97 undermines the elective judiciary
by riving- power to the supreme court to appoint judges
almost without limit. Judges appointing other judges
is not even tolerated in the federal system.
4. Under Sec. 212 all persons of military age would
be conscripted for the state militia, regardless of relig
ious or conscientious scruples as reserved in our present
constitution. Under Sec 78. this universally conscripted
militia is turned into a police force to guard private
property, which is contrary to Sec. 14, Art. 5. of tne
5. Sees. 141 and 142 propose to relieve the direct
taxes on intangibles, such as stocks and bonds, and put
the burdens upon business men. professional men. school
teacher farmers, mechanics, and laborers. Sec. 145,
paragraph 2. fixes it so that every manufacturing plant
in the state may be exempted from taxation under the
operation of Sec. 143. while Sec. 146 enables the freeing
from taxation of the country estates of wealthy men,
aa "forest preserves."
6. Under Sec. 49 the attorney-general and two other
6tate officials may supplant the legislature and gerry
mander the state, with no appeal from their decision.
This grant of power to three politicians, making the
legislative branch subject to their will, is without pre
cedent in any modern constitution.
7. Sec 23 would do away with minority renmes
tation, thus enabling majorities in the general assembly
to promote and conceal their questionable work. The
drastic provisions of this new constitution arainst the
people's liberties can be given speedy statutory enforce
ment under this section.
8. School teachers salaries are not only to be taxed
under Sec. 141, but under Sec. 206 the retiring pension
funds for superannuated teachers would be destroyed, '
thus injuring the cause of public education.
9. Though the framers of this constitution receivsd
direct and positive instruction from the voters at lbs
polls Nov. 4. 1919. to provide for separate vote Dec. 12
on the legislative initiative and referendum and the ;
public ownership of utilities, these principles were ex
cluded, and will not appear ou the ballot Dec 12 as
required by the public.
10. Beside preventing the legislature, in Sec. 49,
from enacting state guarantee of bank deposits, the safe
guards now afforded to depositors in Sec. 6. Art. 11. of
the present constitution are taken away, in Sec 64 of
the proposed constitution.
11. Though this new document omits, and then
fore proposes to repeal, all sections in article 11 of our
present constitution which favor the public by requirioff
railroads and other corporations to list their stocks aad
bonds so the income thereof may be traced: requiring
banks to publish quarterly statements of their condi
tion; requiring competing railroads to avoid consoliaVv
tion or watering their stocks, these pamphlets which in
circulated by the convention committee conceal this .fact.,
Can Never Be Changed!
12. Sec. 21 says that the form of government rtm
the state under this document shall never be "modified."
That the .framers were in earnest .about this is shows
by the amending section (233 1. Under the wording of
this section THE PROPOSED NEW CONSTITUTION
NEVER CAN BE AMENDED, eince it prevents ssf
amendment being adopted which does not receive enough
votes at the polls to equal the aggregate majority far
153 members of the house of representatives, wait
experience shows to be impossible.
