The fact that Rock Island county
is in dire need of a new court house
is conceded throughout the county

struction, would be but temporary,
and sooner or later the court house
matter must be disposed of finally.
In the light of this fact, the only
question that can possibly arise is,
is it policy to delay? Will there
come a time more favorable to build
than bowP If there will not, whv
the delay? If there are any tenable
grounds for opposition now, will the
future lessen such grounds for op-
think so. The onlv thins to be
settled is, have the people
of Rock Island county sufficient
pride and public spirit "to erect a
new court bouse, and if they have,
have they the means can thev afford
to? The Aitiit s believes the heart is
willing, and the wav is open. The
county was never in better condition
to issue bonds than now, and with
the fact heretofore so clearly and
convincingly established that the ad
ditional tax will amount to no more
than 8 cents to the f 100 of assessed
valuation, principal, interest and
all, what possible ground is there for
hesitancy; what man who reasons
with himself can fail to determine to
cast his vote on the affirmative side
of the issue? Who is there who
would not rather pay eicht cents ad
ditional taxes every year on every
tlOO worth of taxable property he
possesses, man to see tbe f3U,iX)0

The school law requires county
superintendents' to hold an annual
institute for the instruction of teach
ers and those who may desire to
teach. '" Under ' the administra
tion of Superintendent Marshall
a series of institutes have been
held in this county, which in breadth
and character of the work done, were
second to none in the state. It is
difficult to provide institute work
which will exactly meet the needs of
all the teachers, and it is only
through a close, an intimate ac
quaintance with the teachers of the
county and their work, that this end
can be even approximated. The suc
cess of the Rock Island county insti
tutes has been due to the character
of the work provided, and the broad
lines of professional instruct inn pur

ity of the instructors selected to do

Sooth Recti leiasMlere Waat the Location of
the Hebrew Barlal l.roaaaa Change a.
The purchase of four lots north of
the Chippiannock cemetery by the
representatives of the Russian Jew
ish congregation of this city, to be
nsed as a separate burial ground by
the people of this creed, has caused
considerable uneasiness among the
residents of Sonth Rock Island, es
pecially those having property in the
vicinjty of Brashar street. The reso
lution read at the city council mect-
ng luesday evening, at the instiga
tion of the South Rock Island prop
erty holders, attributes the stand
taken against tbe cemetery to the
fact that it will injuriously affect the
valuation of abuttiug property. The
petition, which was referred to tbe
ordinance and health committees and
the city attorney, also asks
the council to make some provision
preventing tbe purchase of land for
burial purposes within one mile of
the city limits. If the provisions set
forth in the resolution are granted
it means the nullification of the usage
of the ground purchased by the He-
Drews as a cemetery, wherein, it is
understood, a body has already been
taiu to rest, as the burial grounds
are within tbe desired limitations.
Action Taken at Sears.
After the move taken by South
Rock Island property holders became
known at Scars, and presumably
with the thought that should the
Russian Jews be compelled to change
their cemetery location, a point fur
ther sonth wonld be decided upon,
the town council of Sears on Wednes
day evening passed by unanimous
vote an ordinance in relation to tbe es
tablishment of cemeteries. It prohib
