Said to Be Under the Thumb of De
plorable Influences Now They
Are Saying Very Little.
Utile short of a public calamity
wcu'.d the nomination of L. M. Magill
for state's attorney of Rock Islan
be, according to local republican or
pans before the primaries. Since the
fall campaign has been on they have
been saying very little, which Is
pretty fair indication that their origl
nal views are still held.
Then it was declared that the protec
tion of life and liberty and the pursuit
of happiness in this county would be
uncertain in the event of the nomina
tion and election of Magill, the reason
as. declared being that he was abso
lutely under the control of certain de
plorable influences that have left their
blackening impress upon the communi
ty for years.
I'p to the Votera,.
Now it. is up to the voters to say
whether this man, so denounced in his
own party, shall triumph over Robert
R. Reynolds, the democratic nominee,
against whom no charges or suspicion
have ever been entertained.
Added to this, Mr. Reynolds Is a man
of broad experience as a trial lawyer,
which Mr. Magill is not, and Mr, Rey
nolds is satisfied with the salary'of
53,500 per year as fixed by the super
visors, and which provoked complaint
from Mr. Magill as being inadequate. "
The republicans held forth last night
at their -headquarters at the Turner
hall and held what they counted the
biggest and most important meeting
in their campaign. . A. C. Rankin, for
mer treasurer of the American Federa
tion of Labor, was the speaker. Con
sidering how thoroughly the meeting
vas advertised, and the fact that Mr.
Rankin is a man who has been hon
ored with a high office by organized
labor, it might have been expected
that a large -crowd would have been I
attracted to the meeting. But as a
matter of fact there were not over
150 men in the hall, and of those two
thirds were politicians rather than, la
boring men, and of the whole number
in the audience less than 40 were
showing any interest in the speaker's
remarks, and this small number was
doing all of the applauding. Many
of those who went expecting to hear
some discussion of the relation of the
prosperity of the laboring man to tha
republican party openly showed their
opinion of the speech by leaving the
Drain In Grnrrnlltlen.'
Mr. Rankin talked in generalities
and personal attacks on Mr. Bryan,
and told stories rather than discuss
ing campaign issues. He took occa
sion several times to compare political
situations to biblical events, and drew
weak comparisons that proved dis
tasteful to many in the audience.
The speaker held that the demo
cratic slogan, "Shall the People Rule?"
is an insult to republicans, and he
was very indignant about it. He con
sidered it qiite improper to- imply
that the people do not rule, and that
the republican party is controlled by
the trusts and private interests. Mr.
Rankin could hardly suppress tears
when he told of the unkindness of
such insinuations. But he stopped
when he called it an- insult, and went
on to some other, subject with - the
mere statement that it is an insult
and that the people , do rule.
The orator devoted much of' his talk
to personal attacks against ;Mr. Bryan
and other leaders in - the democratic
party. He made!an' unsupported
charge that Mr. Brr'aA' and the "demo
cratic party is opposed to organized
labor, and claimed that because the
union label does not appear on the
Commoner, printed by union employes,
Mr. Bryan is arrayed against labor.
Of course he had his lines to speak
in regard to Deneen, and he put in
the customary plea 'for the 'whble
ticket, national, state and local.
I tke ITrMltleM.
Aiderman August Utke presided as
chairman of the meeting. B. F. Knox
was on the platform, giving signals
for the applause, while Dr. Joseph
DeSiiva stood in the rear of the hall,
on hand to see that everything went
smoothly, and guarding to see that no
traitor got beyond the door.
