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.

WHO HAVE WHEELS
The Cycle Club's Petition for
Municipal Regulation.
DESEBVES FAVORABLE ACTION.
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.

each bicvele must be provided with
a lantern to be- carried after dark,

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.
