THE DAMAGE 81 IT. The ranti-M tnlrT iki in the Hand, of the J or j Cloning Arguments. The slander case of Grantz against .McKniry which has occupied the at tention of the court for the pa-t week, was civen to the jury this morning at 10 o'clock, after a lengthy charge bv the court. The argu ments of the counsel, two on a side, occupied the time until the evening adjournment, and were listened to by a large audience or interested spectators. j. l. nenworiny maae tne nrst reech for the plaintiff occupying the time until noon and until 3 o'clock after the noon recess. William McEnirv then occupied the attention of the court for an hoar. He claimed that the action of the post' master under the great provocation as detailed bv the witnesses was jus tifiable: that the conduct of the plaintiff was despicable and a breach of his oath as clerk in the postoflice: that one who would c induct him self as plaintiff did would not be un likely to commit the breaches chanred, and at any rate would not suffer in character by the language used against him. E. D. Sweeney closed the argument for the dcfeDse It was a plain review of facts and application of law to thm. The chief points were that the acts of the postmaster, 11 not legauv jusiinaoie. were at least so morally, and that the language used by Mr. McEniry was uttered in the beat of passion and was not used in any mali cious sense: that the injury to the plaintiffs character, if any there was. was not occasioned by the defendant's language, but by the plaintiff himself, bv his conduct in the nice ana in cringing tais suit, and that there was in fact no damage to the plaintiff and he should receive none. Great stress was put upon the proof showing that the plaintiff was he one who wonld likely know about the missing money, and that he would be the one who should account or it in some way; and that in view j of this fact the" words used, if not i justifiable in a legal sense, certainly i would warrant the jury in finding no 'damage to the plaintiff's character, 1 W. 11. Gest closed the plaintiff's argument in an hoar's speech. He called attention to the insidious character of slanderers generally, and the inability to compensate one who was thus injured; to the youth of the plaintiff with his life before him and the great damage this g con duct of the defendant would d him. Then in a perorat'on he called upon the jury to vindicate the plaintiff and punish the defendant, and thus serve as an example for all persons in like manner offoi'ding. The Verrtlet. The jury took the case and re turned into court at 4 o'clock this afternoon, finding the defendant guilty and placing the damage at 81. THE SCHOOL DIRECTORS. Public Sentiment Sen in. to Have Centered oa II. D- FsIhu and J. W. Welcn. The discussion of candidates for members of the board of education which has been indulged, in during the past few days, has formed an ex pression of publfc sentiment which has crystalled on II. D. Folsom and J. W. Welch as the most favored candi dates, and friends of the public school system who have taken an interest in the matter, have succeeded in ob taining the consent of these two gen tlemen to be considered candidates. It is with a sense of deep satisfaction that The Akgi'S makes this an nouncement, as both represent in a lar-re degree the truest and best qualifications for membership of the school lo:ird. 15otn nave nan tne ex perience that identification with the tublic school Rvstem alone can give. Both are fully acquainted with the exact conditioi, of school funds. Both are good business men, and as men of experience and business men, they seem to be tne very candidates we want this year above all others. The Right Hen Exactly. The jtorms expiring are those of Messrs. F. E. Uobbins and H. D. Fol som, and the somewhat premature announcement of a combination which excluded Mr. Folsom, not withstanding that he had not per sonally sought a renomination, has led to the discussion of available candidates, the outcome of which is the formation of the ticket which is in this connection announced. Messrs. Fo'.sotu and Welch it is believed will bo generally accepted as the right mn exactly for mem bers of the board of education, not only in their respective individual capacities, but particularly as their candidacy comes with the force of public opinion in which so many peo ple have been instrumental in form ing.

George worked Geneso before he came to Rock Isl and, and he left there with abundant fruits from his enterprise. Yester day he was tikea off a train at Cam bridge after leaving Rock Island, and escorted back to Geneseo for a hear ing. The Hc-cand Mgtit. The second night of the Indus trial Fair drew a good attendance and furnished an abundance of en tertainment. The program was lengthy and varied, such as to please all. and admirably presented under the direction of E."E. Ziegler, who has secured the cooperation of the best taient to assist him during every evening of the fair. In lat uight's entertainment llollo Teal played a violin overture, the Svea Male Quartet sang nicely two selec tions, the Orpheus, Symphony and Harmony Mandolin clubs consoli dated, gave pleasing numbers. Miss Inas Wiilinms recited "The Maniac" cleverly. Miss Caecile Rohde sang two solos pleasingly. Miss Florence Les ser cpntributed a piano solo and ac companied the singing, E. E. Ziegler artistically executed a medley of operatic airs on the violin, the Or pheus and- Harmony clubs gave a selection, ana :.later Dan Jensen, a talented youngster, played the "Washington Post," a drum solo ac companied by piano and the three M. ndolin clubs.

Tha Proper retlttoa a Retards Coasld eratioa of Public Bights as Well aa Thoee Who Enjojr tba Pastime of Biding Bikea. The action of the Rock Island Cycle club in preparing a memorial to the city council regulating the use of bicycles is both timely and proper. With wholesome consideration of the interests of cyclers, it likewise voices a just regard for the rights of the public at large. People who enjoy the pastime or bicycle riding snouid be as considerate ol tne rignts ol the pedestrian as they expoet the pedes trian to be of the rights of the wheel men. There are people who have a reckless disregard for everybody else. These people sometimes ride bicycles,, and they sometimes do not. and they get in the way of bicycles the same as they get in front of vehi cles and street cars and expect them to turn out. Worthy of Consideration. As said, the proposition of the Rock Island Cycling club contem plates the highest consideration of all interests. In the appeal of the board of directors to the council the statement is made on behalf of the club, that miny of its members are property-holders and tax-payers of the city of Rock Island; that 'the members of the organization, in com mon with all other well meaning citi zens, feel an interest in the welfare and good name of the city; that at the present time there are several hun dred bicycles in daily use on the streets of the city by persons of all nges, from children to adnlts; that the increasing number of riders de mand that suitable legislation be en acted by the city council. Ve, therefore, respectfully sug gest," say the petitioners, that we are in favor of your body enacting an ordinance which in substance re quires a bicycle bell to be attacuea to each bicycle ridden on our streets. both in day time and night; that each bicvele must be provided with a lantern to be- carried after dark, except on moonlight nights; that coasting on Twentieth street hill, be tween Lighteenth and Ninth avenues. be absolutely prohibited; that the speed of bicycle riders be restricted in day time to not more than twelve miles an hour, and in the night time to not more than eight miles an hcur; that as near as practicable. bicycle riders, especially after dark, take the right side of the street with reference to the direction in which such rider is going." Keep the Street. Clean. It is also urged that the safety of aheelmen and others depends upon keeping the paved streets free from' obstructions and as clean as possible. The petition is certainly worthy of the council's favor. The New llirectorjr. . The general canvass for informa tion for the new directory is com pleted.
