THE ARGUS. Published Dally and Weekly at 1624 Becond avenue. Rock Island, 111. En tered at the postofflce as second-class matter. BY THE J. W. POTTER CO. TERMS Dally, 10 cents per week. Weekly, $1 per year In advance. All communications of argumenta tive character, political or religious, must have real name attached for pub lication. No such articles will be print ed over fictitious signatures. Correspondence solicited from every township in Rock Island county. Tuesday, July 12, 1904. Judge Parker has never been beaten for a political otfice and he never .will be. The Japanese fighting front is said to be 120 miles long. Every few miles It is very hot. The Chicago Chronicle started in to run Bryan out of the democratic par ty, but it seems that Bryan has run the Chronicle out. And the best of it that everybody seems to be satisfied. Judge Parker has been a life long and consistent democrat, a man of sound views and moral courage, with firmness of character that will com mand the respect and confidence of the people. Conservative and inde pendent citizens throughout the union will be glad of the opportunity of voting for him. After reading his joke book, a re publican editor writes that the demo crats may lose in 1004 because the hall in which Parker was nominated in St. Louis was on Thirteenth street. He might have gone further and said that thirteen people had entered the convention before the fourteenth got in. Oh, these superstitous cut -tips! Emanating from the J sources from which came prior to the demo cratic national convention, all sorts of rumors designed to cause mischief, and reflecting upon the good faith of the Illinois delegation, and the impos sible attitude of certain distinguished members of the delegation, now come reports that followers of Bryan are planning a bolt of the St. Louis ticket and an alliance with the populists. As was the case in the former instance, these announcements, are as a matter of fact without the slightest founda tion, the wish being father to the thought, ami that is the beginning and the end of it. The only bolt that has developed from the action of the dem ocratic national convention is that of the Chicago Chronicle, which for eight years has proven such a nuisance that democrats were getting ready to read it out anyway. Good Itiddance. The Chicago Chronicle has parted company with the democrat ic party and allied itself with the republican party, uccording to editorial announce ment appearing in its columns this morning. The Chronicle has de serted the democratic party be cause that paper's dictations were unavailing in the national con vention at St. Louis, and because the party declined to refuse consiilera tion to the twice chosen leader of the party in a national campaign, in ex planation of its attitude, the Chronicle declares : "It is bad enough to have .Mr. Bryan dominating radical democratic conven tions. When Mr. Bryan is able to si lence a "conservative" democratic con vention the situation becomes intoler able. A mixture of William Jennings Bryanism and David B. Hillism is in supportable. "The Chronicle is not in sympathy with Mr. Bryan's ideas. For eight years it has refused to believe that Mr. Bryan's ideas were acceptable to the real democrats of the country. The result at St. Louis appears to end the discussion. He and Hill an in control. He and Hill have named the ticket and made the platform. "A timid eastern democrat, who fondly imagined that he could be nom inated as an unknown, has been placed on the ticket with an octogenarian free silverite from West Virginia and supplied with a platform which amounts to an indorsement of the plat forms of Chicago and Kansas City. The populist ic west and the reaction ary south are again in alliance, with a new leader it is true, but with no change in principle and purpose. The ticket bears the stamp of populism. There is not a plank in the platform which was not modified by populism. "The democratic party is attached to Bryanism. It is subservient to Bryan. It has been persuaded against its natural inclinations to nominate an unknown candidate whom Bryan has antagonized, but it has permitted Bryan to do the rest. The democratic party is Bryan and there is no reason to suppose that its triumph under the leadership of a man who voted twice for Bryan and free silver, and boasted of it. would be anything else than a triumph for Bryan. "Disagreeing fundamentally with this leader and this party in moat tilings and agreeing with the republi can party in the essentials of its creed. The Chronicle today takes leave of the democratic party and allies itself with the republicans." There will be no tears shed by loyal democrats at this parting- If ever there was a nuisance and a men ace to a great party the Chicago Chronicle has. since it came into ex istence, borne that relation to the democratic party. Pretending to es pouse the principles of democracy, it has been an exponent of plutocracy and hence the handmaid of republi canism. It has always been violently opiosed to the democratic organiza tion and candidates in Cook county and in Chicago, and notwithstanding that iis efforts have been futile, the fact that it pretended to be democra' l. has made it dangerous to an extent at least, and if it had some influence among democrats, happily it will not have henceforth. The party has long been weary of its dyspeptic grunt and complaint, and must regard its with drawal as a most healthful sign. The republican party is welcome to the rhroniele and all that goes with it. It need hardly be said that ihe Chron icle will find the paths that it has chosen more familiar, its relations more congenial and its labors more consistent with its cause than has been the case with it up to this time. Union With Honor. St. Louis Republic: The demo cratic party has agreed uion a plat form. The act marks a triumphant union of democratic hosts. Every ele ment of the party has been allowed full participation in the deliberations. Bvery sentiment has been considered, and every claim and contest allowed full development and value. There have been strong presenta tions of views. An earnest hearing has been given to all questions and differences. In the end the entire representation of the party has uni ted in a conclusion. Democracy, like t great and indissoluble family, has settled its differences and found that on vital issues it is one. It is a glo rious consummation and one gratify ing to every true democrat in this broad nation. The result is a platform to meet the approval of every worthy class and interest in the union. It declares the fundaments! principles f the party as they affct immediate prol-b-nis of national life. The platform as it stands is com prehensive as to all matters and, in the opinion of the united convention, conclusive upon these matters of present-day importance. The live is sues have been adequately, sanely and satisfactorily treated. Democratic union without dissent embodies sanity and understanding. The platform is its complete expression. The treat ment of the vital issues will accord with the better and larger public opinion of the country. The party has taken the best ground. As to honesty and economy in gov ernment, as to the trust and tariff evils ami the menace of imperialism. democracy's attitude meets the tests of conservatism and intelligence. It is a progressive and vigorous, but prudent .democracy which is defined in the platform. Nothing more significant has mark ed Jhe politics of this nation for many decades than the amicable consolida tion of all the elements of the demo cratic party. It is an event which cannot be magnified: an event the im portanee of which cannot be exagger ated, it will have pronounced effect upon the country's career. It cannot fail now to be the subject of widest rejoicing by the democrats of all sec tions. Democracy's days of estrange ment are over. It is now indivisible and indivisibility means invincibility.

Jack Is at : times feminine, at times masculine. Strange to say. I like my lover best When be is feminine. 1 suppose, to be strictly grammatical. I should say j "when she is feminine." but there is 1 no word in the English language which stands for "be or she.' We use "he" at times to stand for both. Therefore whether he is acting like a man or a woman I shall call him "he." Sometimes Jack pays me compli ments, sometimes tells me the truth -if it is the truth blurting it out sud denly and gruffly. He often criticises my dress, at times approving of my -oslume, at times deer ring it. 1 was dresed for a ball the other evening and, suddenly looking up, saw Jack re garding me intently. As my gaze met his nn expression of admiration sud denly lighted up his face. "Ton are very pretty, dear," he said. "I'm glad you like my costume." I replied. "Have you any suggestions?" "It Is perfect. You might take that rose from over your right temple anil put it farther back. There: that will do. It is a great Improvement." I walked away from him, turning my head, while he kept bis eye fixed on the rose. "Very pretty," he snid. "And your train follows you gracefully. You are sure to have plenty of attention this evening. Your card will be filled be fore you have been In the ballroom ten minutes Then, when the fellows come up and ask for a dance, you will n-- your head, hold out jour card and note their disappointment. It will be de lightful." If Jack would always talk to me like this I would like him better. But he doesn't. Sometimes he looks at me In a most unsatisfactory way and says what he looks. "You're a dowdy looking thing." he said to me the other day. "That dress hangs on you In wrinkles and makes you appear as old as your grandmoth er." "Well, I can t help it," I replied. "Mine. B. has tried three times to fit me and failed every time. She'll not have another chance." This is where Jack Is feminine, when he Is prattling about dress. But some times he talks to me ubout my good and vetk points. He Is very change able I read him some verses lately that I had Just written, und ho was in ec Btadea over them. I read them to him again in a week, and he called them rubbish. Jack's only rival is Ernest Field. He is very different from Jack, being al ways manly. He rarely notices my dress or compliments me. but when he does I prise it far more than Jack's shifting opinions. I read him the verses that Jack at first admired, then called rubbish. He listened respectful ly till 1 got through, then said. "Very pretty," In a bored kind of a way. "Shall we go for a walk 7" I could have scratched out bis eyes. After that Jack called hie a fool to waste my time dribbling over common place sentimental rhymes. Occasional ly he Is very sensible, but I have no ticed that I get the benefit of his good sense after Finest has rapped me over the knuckles. The next time I saw Er nest I told him that I was ashamed of my poetic effusion and would not of fend again. "Your verses are much better thau the average," he said, " but only a gen ius can avoid being commonplace in verse." Yesterday Ernest told me that be would call this evening and would have something very especial to say to me. It quite took my breath away, for I knew very well what that something would be. How could I give up Jack? When Ernest was announced I had been ready and waiting for him half an hour. It was the longest half hour I had ever known. Jack and I were reading I was pretending to read at the time in the library. I looked up from my book, ami Jack looked up at the same moment. He knew what I was waiting for, and I saw him shiver. There was a sharp ring at the bell, a heavy step In the hall it seemed as if un undertaker had come to measure me and the maid came in to tell me that Mr. Field was in the drawing room. I gave Jack a half assuring look and went to meet my fate, what ever it might he, for I was in a state of Indecision. I hoped Ernest would lead up to what he had to say gradually, but he didn't. lie began by saying that it bet ter understanding should exist between two !;. who had been so much to gether, and he had called to do his part in bringing that understanding alout. That part was to tell me that he loved me and wished me to be his wife. Perhaps It was the way he did It. At any rate, I said after a short si lence that he was too late: that I al ready had a lover who was the only one to whom I could entirely give my self. I was very sorry if ho had con strued a friendliness on my part to mean love. I had not intentionally misled him. The expression that came over his face was one of terrible disappoint ment. It was surprising to me after his very methodical proposition. It broke down my resolution. "I only wish." he said, "that I were in his place. God grant that he may make you happy, as you deserve." ' Ernest," I said in a comforting tone and reaching for his hand, "my lover has a fault which may after all kill my affection for him. He is very changeable. Do you wish to see him? IxKk!" I pointed to my reflection in a mirror. "Jaqueline:" he exclaimed, radiant, and took me in bis arms ELIZA L. WHITCOMB. Inflammatory Rheumatism Cured in Three Days. Morton I Hill, of Lebanon.
