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.

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.

Fourth avenue saloon keeper, who

liquor to minors, was revoked by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.

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.

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.
