Represents One of Rock Isl and's Pioneer Families. IS AN OLD TIME DEMOCRAT. Possesses All the Require ments for the Office. Is Popular Throughout the County. Charles W. Nopus, democratic can didate for sheriff, represents one of the pioneer families of Rock Island county. There was no one liettcr known or more highly respected in Uock Island in his d'av than the late Isaac Negus. He was an original city builder, and early promoter, a man of unflinching integrity, and a democrat through and through. His mantle has fallen upon his son. in whom the democrats have a can didate for sheriff of Rock Island county. Like his distinguished father, he is straightforward and up- 2 -11 1 .1 ngui in an ms dealings, is popular with all. is known throughout the county, and is a rock-ribbed, thor oughgoing democrat of the old school Charles W. Negus was born in Rock Island in September, 1845. He was reared here, where all his life has been spent. From the time he left school until 1869 he was identified with his father's business interests, but in the year mentioned he em barked in the steamboat business, purchasing the steamer, Jennie Brown. For three years he was de voted to the river trade, the first year being engaged in towing mate rial for the construction of the Hock Island bridge, and the other two con ducting a local packet in the Rock Island, Davenport and Clinton trade. Then he again associated himself with his father, becoming the latter's confidential clerk, in which capacity be served until the death of the elder Negus, although incidentally he has always been engaged more or less in the stock business. Since his father's demise, Mr. Ne gus has looked after his own estate, which included, until recently, an interest in the Rock Island bouse property. He has always been one of the city's most extensive and best tax payers. He is progressive and public spirited as a business man. and is possessed of those qualities which will fit him for an ideal sheriff of the county. Mr. Negus was alderman from the Third ward in 1888-90, and by his vote vand influence encouraged the adoption of the system of paving and grading under which Rock Isl and has gone so steadily forward, be ing himself one of the tax payers who were hit the hardest by the "im provement at the outset. Police I'olnta. t The license of John Boos, the Fourth avenue saloon keeper, who plead guilty in the county court the other day to three charges of selling liquor to minors, was revoked by Mayor Medill today at noon. Ernie Krebs. a little fellow about eight years of age, who has been making a practice of going around the two town begging, was arrested yesterday in Moline by Oflicer Kear ney of that city, who brought him to Rock Island. Chief Sexton recog nized the little fellow as being the same boy he had seen begging on the streets here, but who wonuld not dis close bisresidencc. Word was sent to Davenport, asking if the police knew if such a family lived over there, and it was learned that Ernie resided with hiB parents, south of Fifth street, between Main and Harrison. When Chief Sexton and Oflicer Kear ney started to Davenport with the boy, he cried, saying that his parents sent him out every morning about 6 o'clock, and If be returned with less than $1 he would be severely thrashed. His home was found to be at the place stated above, where a lazy father and mother were discov ered in a dark, dingy, filthy and di lapidated shanty, not being as much as furnished. When asked as to their cruelty to the child, the parents emphatically denied the assertion. criAs. w. negus. SATURDAY? OCTOBER 6, 1894. THE BALLOT LAW. The Sapreme Comrt Has Roadered M De clatoa lp It. An item has been going the rounds of the state in fact it appeared in Thic Attars some weeks ago to the effect that the supreme court of the state had handed down an opinion upon the Australian ballot law, and the legal construction established by the highest tribunal in the state was to the effect that in order to vote the straight ticket the circle at the top and to the left of the partv to be voted for must be marked, and there must be no other marks on the tick et, whereas, in order to vote a split ticket the cross at the top must be omitted and one made in the square before each name voted for, and that only such candidates so indicated would be counted by the judges of election as having "cen voted for. It so happens that this same item found its wav into the ITni.,n morning, and in fact has been given pretty general publicity. No Declalun lilv.n .

The Akgls has re ceived reply from each clerk to the effect that the supreme court has in no instance given an opinion as to me manner oi voting under the Aus tralian law. Hence, it will be seen that the statement to the effect nf l.xnl in struction of the method of balloii.i"- nau been made, is entirely in error, and the manner, as set forth in tu law stands, the law providing that uere me intention is to vote the straight ticket, it is ncccssarv mnrolc to make the cross at the "top, but ... i .i ... . wiiere mere is a disposition to vote for candidates on the ormnsin.r tirlot the cross is to be made at the top : . . i , . i . . jum tue same ami anotner 'S to be made in the square opposite the can didates to be voted for on anv of the other tickets individually.

As prophesied in The Akcos a few evenings ago, a change is to be made in the chief dispatcher's oflice of the Rock Island, although it is to be hoped it will effect no more than the removal of the three dispatchers on the main line to Des Moines. The change, as near as cap be learned, is to be made in the interests of econ omy and policy. As soon as ar rangements can he made, possibly in 10 days, or so. the transfer will be executed. The southwestern dis patchers will remain here, from what can be learned, as no steps to the contrary have vet been made. Rock Island will continue as the head quarters of the trainmaster and chief dispatcher, as this is the terminal point of the two divisions which they preside over. The New Tlaae Card.
