The Panama canal was not under way In those days, but the Hennepin canal was and hence the conservation of the waterway rights and privileges was repeatedly urged. The Argus protested against per mitting railroads or other corpora tions being granted any further fran chises that would curtail the ad vantages of river transportation. Time and again railroads sought track rights there and The Argus in every Instance fought the granting of the desired privileges. Saturday noon at the Rock Island club, Thomas Wilkinson of Burling ton, president of the Upper Mississippi Improvement association spoke of the urgency of providing for terminals along the river, In view of the com pletion of the Panama canal and eventually the systematic deepening of the main channel of the river from St. Louis to St. Paul. Mr. Wilkinson advised that all cities along the river reaiRt any encroachments by the rail roads on the levees and that the river fronts be safeguarded for future river commerce. The advice was timely. This grand old river that has been flowing on peacefully by Rock Island's door for years will yet mean more to the city and to all cities that Jet its banks than the people of this genera tion realize. So once again, "save the levee." Viewed from any angle the Issue In the Inauguration of the recall as at present applied to Rock Isiand, is the vindication of the disreputable saloon. rnOGKESSIVK IV Al.li RESPECTS The more that is learned of Wood row Wilson the more common be comes the agreement that he is not only progressive but patriotic and po tential.

Civil and criminal prosecution of Here is something to think about and to think about very seriously: Woman hat prided herself thus far upon the fact that heretofore the large majority of applicants for divorco were women. It has been proof posi tive, apparently, that man is a tyrant and a brute, and that most men make undesirable husbands. The divorce court has been wom an's road to freedom. That man has not availed himself of It more fre quently has been considered another proof that a wife Is an angel imposed upon; that a husband knows ne has a good thing and doesn't want to lose it. Well, the husbands are waking up to the extent that now 50 per cent of the divorces are applied for by men. This in spite of the fact that there are many more grounds for divorce for a wife than there are for a husband. It is not very flattering, is It? Perhaps some women aren't such abused angels, after all! Perhaps Mr. Henpeck Is going to lug islanders who have looked upon rebellion as the surest and straight est road to sinecures. John Bull is in the mood Just now to comb Canada for Indian runners who can win as Thorpe and Sockalex- nopoly and stock-watering; an amend ment of the anti trust law to make It fully effective.

Perhaps the man who loves home and children and the simple life will seek another chance, with another wife who doesn't spend on "show" all that he can earn. - Maybe the husbands of the nagger, the slouch, the fault-finder, the gad der, the "nervous" woman, the mar ried flirt and a few others pne knows of, will ask freedom in the divorce court. Maybe, too, the husband who Is Just tired of his wife, will manage to get rid of her in a perfectly legal way, so that he may have a fresh spouse. Anyway, it behooves wives to con sider this divorce matter, now, from both sides the husband's as well as the wife's. Most divorces. If the truth were known, result from faults in both. Of course there are men with whom no decent woman could or should live. But there is also the woman who takes advantage of a husband's habit of loyalty, by heaping countless mis- erics upon him. A certain gallantry In the average man has kept many out of the divorce court. But gallantry toward women seems waning more and more, and we are actually being treated to an ex hibition of men asking for their "lights," as well as women. Let us hope that the new divorce situation will make girls choose their marital mates more carefully, and that a girl will rather take the safety of single blessedness than the possibil ity of a divorce after matrimony has made her a dependent. Let us hope, too, that the quarrel some wife will think twice before ut tering her frequent threat of divorce. The worm may turn. Humor and Philosophy r 9VJCAf ft.

Trial by Jury in cases of indirect fer. and l.rth he and Ms children profit ' contempt ; rigid impartiality in all BY CLYDE H. TAVEIMNER. (Special Correspondence of The Argus.) Washington, July 20. The demo cratic house of representatives, by the passage of a bill to create a de partment of labor, has paved the way for a distinct ad- ancement to the cause of labor. The organized working men of the country have for years sought representation in the president's cabinet, and a spe cial department to Investigate and improve the con ditions of labor. The democratic ; house gave ear to this appeal and the new depart-1 ment of labor practically assur ed as a result, of labor, as pro vided in the house bill, provides for a secretary of labor, who shall be a member of the president's cabinet and three assistant secretaries, together with such clerks and oilicials as may be necessary to carry on the business of the department. The bill author izes the collection of statistics rela tive to the conditions of labor.- It authorizes the secretary of labor to act as mediator in lahor disputes, thereby giving the influence of the government toward industrial peace. IN FAVOR OK BIl.l.. Chairman Wilson of Pennsylvania, who had charge of the bill on the floor, made several masterful speeches' giess. TAvEMNER The department ln Its favor and he also bore the brunt of the debate Incidental to the passage of the measure. Mr. Wilson pointed out that while there are upwards of 30.000,000 labor ers in the United States, they have, up to this time, been without direct representation in the president's cabi net. One of the most important feat ures of the bill, if not its most val uable provision, is that which author izes the secretary of labor to act as umpire in labor disputes. Chairman Wilson pointed out that this provision of the bill would make it a measure of the greatest value, not only to the parties directly interested, but to the general public as well. The secretary of labor, he explained, would have the confidence of both sides, and would be ln a position to bring the contend ing parties together on a basis of agreement. TO ADVANCE LABOR'S CAUSE. Mr. Wilson, President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor and the "labor group" in congress are un animous in the belief that this bill will advance the cause of labor Im measurably in this country. While it does not provide for arbitration In la bor disputes, it does make it easier for tho two factions to get together. and this, the labor leaders say, is al ways the hardest step in the settle ment of a trade dispute. The new department, in addition. will prove of immense educational aliie, in that it will distribute facts and figures showing the condition of labor in all industries. And educa tion, says Chairman Wilson, is the main thing needed to better the con dition of the worker. The democrat ic bill is one of the greatest victories the working man ever gained in con- Fleeting. The June bug- Uvea a very brief And uneventful life. Be hardly gets acquainted with.

"Tut, tut!" said Mr. Clode under his breath as he placed his umbrella In the stand and stooped to pick up the spool. Ills neat and orderly spirit was shocked at the sight of the tangled thread on the floor. So he began to wind It on to the spool, and he wound most industrious ly for five minutes before he reached the end of the thread, which had a small loop In It This he fastened neatly ln the little notch cut ln the end of the, spool and dropped the spool on the table beside the parlor door. At least Mr. Clode thought he dropped the spool there, but as a matter of fact it rolled off into the umbrella stand and fell among the fold of Mr. Clode's silk umbella.- At the dinner table Phineas Clode was pleased to note that a newcomer was placed opposite to him. She was a small, fair woman, rather delicate looking, and as she walked into the ; dining room he noted that she limped slightly. Mrs. Rowell, his landlady, in troduced Phineas to the stranger. Her name was Miss Cynthia Felton. "Miss Felton is my second cousin," said Mrs. Rowell, with an amiable smile at the middle aged bachelor. who was In every respect her "star" boarder.

He was startled out of a dream of many quiet games of chess with Miss Felton by the voice of Mrs. Benuett, his next neighbor. "Somebody taken your lace?" she said la her hard shrill voice. "I call that mean." "Oh, no; I didn't say any one had taken it'" protested Miss Felton, with a shocked glance around the table. "I merely said I had lost it." Meantime Phineas Clode ate his supper quite Innocent of any partici pation iu the disappearance of the lace. He had planned out his evening with the same precision that he devoted to the neatly kept ledgers in the ware bouse where he had been bead book keeper for many years. As soon as he had eaten his dinner he would walk three times around the block while he smoked a cigar. Then he would return to bis boarding house and read the evening paper in hla com fortable alcove bedroom. As soon as be bad met Miss Felton, however, he thought he recognized the quiet, concentrated mind of a chess player. If she didn't know bow to play he might teach her. Bo after he bad walked around the block three times and returned to the boarding house parlor to report that tbe ruin had censed, although the sky was still overcast, be Joined Miss Fel ton at the round table where she was engaged ln some Intricate needlework which employed the drawing of many threads from a piece of linen and then sewing the threads together In confus ing groups that finally evolved into a chhrmli.g pattern. "This Is called drawn work," explain ed Miss Felton ln response to bis ques tion. "The lace yon lost I heard you men tion it nt the tHble was It something like this?" Phineas gazed vaguely around the room as though he thought some lucky chance might reveal the hiding place of the lost lace. "Oh, no, Indeed. It was knitted lace. It was such a pretty pattern!" "What was it like?" Inquired I'hln ens gravely. He was Interested In It and growing more so every moment because Mtas Felton was so sweet. "Well," said Miss Felton, dropping her work and folding her pretty white hand:, "it had a background of tiuy butterflies with rosea here and there. A friend of mine originated the pat tern and set tbe stitches for me Just before I left home. She has since died. So the midsummer love pattern that's what she called It will never be made after all." "Midsummer love," repeated Phin eas remlniscently. "Seems to me I used to know a song called that" "Yes, there is one I used to know that It went this way." And Miss Felton hummed under her breath In a sweet, rich tone, and Phineas Joined players at the other end of the room encored their effort After awhile Miss Felton went to the piano and played some accompa niments for Phineas, who sang "The Soldier's Farewell" and "Mary ef Ar gyll." Then, to Phineas' delight he learned that Miss Felton was a devot ed chess player, and the rest of the evening was spent ln a quiet corner of the room over the chess table. At exactly 8:30 the next morning Phineas Clode put on his hat and mackintosh and picked his umbrella, out of the hall stand, for It was raln-i lng again. As he accomplished thl apparently unimportant act Miss Fel ton came slowly down the stairway, while at the same moment theret emerged from the dining room, which: he had Jnst left, Mrs. Bennett and Miss Chase, the stenographer. When morning greetings had been exchanged Mrs. Bennett called up to Miss Felton, who had paused halfwayi down the stairs. ' "Did you find yotrr lace, Utaa Feb ton?" I "No. Indeed; not a trace of It" ! "Odd where 'tis," cUpped Miss Chased' "Raining?" she asked Phineas. "Yes, I believe so," replied PhtneacJ giving his umbrella a little shake as h opened the front door. Then that spool of thread flew ouq and rolled slowly down the breadth of red csrpet Phineas stared. Mrs. Bennett amlled! significantly at Miss Chase, who mur mured, "Search mel" Miss Felton peered over the banister and looked al the spool. "Why, that looks like my thread,, she cried. "Where can it have come from, and where Is my lace?" "It came out of Mr. Clode's nmbreU' la," said Mrs. Bennett dryly as she j picked up the spool and handed it to Miss Felton. Mrs. Bennett did not Ilka Mr. Clode that is, not since he had) given her plainly to understand that he was quite satisfied with his state of single blessedness. Mrs. Bennett was a stout, blond widow. "So long!" murmured Miss Chase,1 taking herself and her stenographic sentences from the house, and she was Immediately followed by Mrs. Ben nett "I haven't the slightest idea how 11 happened. Miss Felton," stammered! Phineas, growing redder every moment as Mlsg Felton looked oddly at him, That is, I thought I placed the spool on the table last night It must have: fallen into my umbrella." "But where did yon find It, MrJ Clode?" asked the little woman gently. Then Phineas recollected all about the kitten which had been playing with a spool of thread ln the front hall tbe evening before and how he had rescued the spool and carefully wound the loose thread upon it and finally bad fastened the little loop ln the end of the thread ln tbe notch in tbe spool. Miss Felton shook her head regret fully. "Ah, Mr. Clode, see what you have done. It was you who unraveled my knitted lace, the pattern of mid summer love. It was on the table be side me, and I never saw it as it was pulled to the floor. It is amusing too!" She laughed a gay little laugh, and Phineas Clode felt a desire to embrace her then and there for her sweetness in not being severe with him. He un derstood that ladles were very partic ular about their lace patterns and might beconio attached to some partic ular ones, and he would not have blam ed her If she had cut his acquaintance then and there. For the first time in his life he was late to business thnt morning, and ho pnld so little attention to his under lings in the olllee that they put In an amazingly Idle day. When the office was closed lie put on bis hnt and paid a visit to an old friend of his mother's, an aged lady who lived ln Brooklyn and whom he remembered to be al ways engaged lu some sort of "fancy work." "Midsummer love lace pattern?" she murmured In response to his blushing Inquiry. "What's got Into you, Fbln eas? Not knitting lace, are you?" "No, ludeedl" he hastened to ensure her. "I merely want It for a friend." "Well, I haven't got such a thing, but I have got a pattern you can take to her. No one ever made It except my self, but I'll send it to her because she's your friend, Phineas." And she gave it to him In a sealed envelope, and he went away happy as a boy. After dinner be gave It to Miss Fel ton, while the others wrangled over bridge In the next room. "I hope It will in a small measure replace the one I destroyed." be said meekly as she opened the envelope and drew out tbe pattern. It was a dainty design of wreaths of orange leaves and blossoms, and pinned to It. was a bit of paper on which was scrawled In an angular, old fusbloned hand. "Bride's Wreath." They bent their heads over the love ly pattern, and a faint color bloomed ln each face. "I hope that may be prophetic," mnrmure.1 Phineas softly, and Cynthia Felton did not chide him for saj-ltur It .
