Price 25 cents- Unanimous on Mayor. It is a fact that, last year, when Mayor Butler was announced by the Union as a Republican party candidate, he went to that office and denounced the actas against his wishes and. consent, denying. that he ever agreed to be a party candidate and should not hold himself as a party mayor if elected. Knowing this fact, and know ing also that he had'not acted the partizan in his appointments, and that he had no desire, this year, to be the candidate of either party, as a party, the Democrats paid him the compliment of a nomination which Le has gracefully accepted, as wil be seen by his letter in this paper. He therefore as much the Democratic candi date as the Republican candidate, and his past course shows that party politics wi lis M 1 fn not control his oniciai acts, in is is jus the man we want for mayor. is "Turn About," is Tair Play. The Democrats having nominated the Republican candidate for mayor Republi cans ought now to drop their candidates for aldermen and vote for those nominated by the Democrats. "Turn about" is fair pUy. Mayor Butler will recive a hearty support from all the Democratic aldermen in everything tendintr to the welfare of the city. The men preseuted by the Demo crats are, in no case, the inferior of those ruminated by the Republicans, and are generally superior. Of course neither party has presented the highest class of talent but when our leading business men and property holders absent themselves from the primaries, nothine better need lie and to the faculty that there should be standard I ever "be expected. But the Democrats have nothing to be ashamed of on a com parison of tickets. Let every Democrat, therefore, do his whole duty.and especially appeal to Republicans to show fair play by- voting for our men, iuasmuch as we vote for .theirs for mayor, and inasmuch as our candidates are heartily iu accord with faculty my Compound Fluid Extracts, which I tayr Butler in every effort lor the good cmmiuiu in me vmucn oi uic medicines, anu are preparations of uniform strength, and possessing the most advantage. To effect this, and ubviute ins inconvenience alluded to, I tiave made a number of experiments to ascertain the most effectual rtieaus of extracting the virtues of Sur- laparllla aud the Ducbu, und to discover the most eligible form for their exhibition. Tbe experi ments have resulted most favorably, aud it is with much pleasure I now offer to the public and the I The Pop Maker and Glass Blower on Sanitary Conditions. In this paper will be found a report of the water works committee, appended to which is a report from Dr. Farquharson, of Davenport, and p man Darned Morgan, on our water works water, ordered pub- ished by the city council Who is Morgan ? Why, he is the man from whom the water works committee bought the new pump. Of course he would give his customer "a character." Carse got him to write his little piece, and then brought him up and introduced him to us, and he offered this very letter to us for publication then on the 26th of last January. We read it and handed it back to Morgan, with the remark that the people of Rock Island wouldn't be likely to be influenced much by his opin ion on the subject; that we didn't think his opinion more valuable than the average of men who went around canvassing for business. But now his little letter is shoved in with the report, as though it was of some importance. Of course it proves nothing. The water works committee deny that they have been trying to whitewash or de lay investigation, but the facts don't war rant their denial. They were appointed on the 22nd of January, and ordered to procure an analysis of the water. Did they proceed to do what they were ordered to do? No. They dilly-dallied and Bhilly shallied until the river began to rise, aud until the shore ice had melted away, and until air and sun could operate on the water, and until the earth along the shore could absorb portions of the sewage, and then, when the water had become com caratively pure, they proceed to execute their order, and publish the result on the 2nd of March more than a month after they were ordered to do it, and after the water had greatly improved. Having de layed long enough to prepare'a big bucket of whitewash they proceed, more than a month afterwards, to daub it on the people but it is too thin. Ihe water works committee allude to two physicians who say positively that the water was the cause of the disease, and then the water works committee say "All the other physicians say their ob smation does not lead to such a conclusion that the dianha-a exists xoithyut reference to the water, and it is not caused by it." Is it possible that Messrs. Butler, Carse and Davis are ignorant of the facts, and thus led to state a deliberate uutruth Have they read the proceedings of th Iowa and Illinois Central Medical Associa Uon, held iu this city last week? If so they ought to make haste and retract th positive untruth they have signed and offi cially promulgated.

That is about as positive a condemnation of the location of our pump- ng works as we could expect from that committee. Next comes Dr. Farquharson's table, in which our pecple will be astonished to perceive that it he analyzed the water taken from under the draw bridge he failed to give us the results! lie only tells us about the stdiment in the water absolutely nothing else. This ooks suspicious- Why is an analysis of the water from the main channel sup pressed? Was he ordered not to analyze it? Was it necessary to the proper com position of the whitewash to suppress any analysis of the water at the main bridge? There's something about this that needs explanation, Dr. Farquharson takes a great deal of space to tell us that according to his test the water .is about alike, all around here and then he proceeds to "kick the stuffing out of" a chemical analysis in the follow ing words, viz: "Though the question of the production of disease from drinking water was not directly submitted to me, i may be al lowed to state that the causes ot disease, such as the subtle germs of cholera and typhoid fever, may undoubtedly exist in water, and yet be entirely inappreciable to the senses of man, no matter how well aided by such instruments as the micros- him but said his private business would not permit him to attend to the duties if elected A formal ballot was then ordered, but. before the vote could be taken, Mr. Buford arse and said that it was apparent to him that no man could be nominated who would take the office and who would be satislactory to the he sueRested that the convention nominate Mai.

They went to the Harper House and registered as II. L. Stone, Providence, and F. Wright, of New Yor"k. They had no bag gage, except valises. They behaved rudely at the supper table and went out soon alter supper, coming in about 1 o'clock or l:3o Sunday morning dazed drunk, aud wanted to go to bed. The house was pretty full and the best that could be done for them was rooms on ahe third floor just as good as any rooms in tho house, but up 3 flights of stairs. When they got up two flights they made so much noise and so disturbed the house that Mr. Harper ordered their bills col lected aud ihe fellows put in charge of the police. After some difficulty they were locked up in jail. Sunday morning Justice Hayden admitted them to liberty for their appearance at 9 o'clock this morning, ou putting up $25 each as security, Stone borrowed the money.for his part, of Stew art & Montgomery, he being an agent of the Nicholson File Company, Providence, and selling them goods.
