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

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

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

they ought to make haste and retract th
positive untruth they have signed and offi

Helmbold's Bucqu. Ilelmbold's
Buchu has long been known as one of the
most valuable medicines attainable in cer
tain classes of diseases, such as dyspepsia
chronic rheumatism, dropsy, cutaneous
affections, and especially affections of the
urinary organs. As a diuretic, it is supe
rior to almost any other medicine in use
and the great care with which it is rre
pared, the absolute purity ot the prepara
tion, and the diligence used in the selection
ot the crude material, have made it known
:ar and wide as a reliable aud effective
preparation, and one that can always be
used with safety and benefit. The great
success of Ilelmbold's Buehu has led to
the production ot many spurious prepara
tions, which are made cheaply and placed
upon the market to be sold on tbe reputa
tion acquired by Helmbold s original pre
paration. Parties who desire a really good
medicine should be careful and use Helm
hold's only.
