SOCX XSX.AVD, XZ.X.ZVOZS, Wednesday, March 7. IS77. Mr. "Plain Facts" And His Abuse of the Majority of the Doctors. HIS COMMUNICATION RIDDLED THROUGH AND THROUGH. The; Abominably Tiltliy Water .Rock Inland Drinks. To the Editor of The Argus. In the Kock Island Union of the 3d and 4th inst- may be found a great amount of stuff which, apparently, was intended to incite a feeling of hate among the peo ple of Rock Island toward what the writers were pleased to style "the major ity of the doctors," and all this because they honestly declared their belief in regard to a "probability" of the water in Kock Island containing the poison which caus ed the epidemic of diarrhoea in that city. The water of the river, it was believed, was, "probably,"the bearer of poison, but the wells also were suspected. Ooe of the correspondents of the Union, styling 1 If 111 tl tl . M 1 . . nimscu i lain r acta, even said that a "combination" had been formed in order to overthrow the water works at Rock Is land. Let "Plain Facts" offer a reason why such an object should or did exist in me minas ot tne majority ot doctors, or retract his falsehood. "Plain Facts" said: "Personally, re gard suoh a conclusion as was arrived at by the majority of .doctors, on Thursday, as an insult to the intelligence many ot'MV friends good and reliable citizens MY family and MYSELF" and, I say 0. My And this personal pronoun then says, "When the majority of doctors tell ME, that the diarrhoea epidemic in Rock Island is probably the renult of drinking hydrant water 1 am obliged to say that they speak either in culpable ignorance or through wilful perversion ot what they must knoxo to be the truth." This sounds like an old lady down east, who was at a loss to know why all the world were fools ex cept nerseu. irue, ne says, l am aware that when some men have taken one side of a question, nothing will induce them to change their opinions, lhey call tnis consistency or nrmness. lne proper word is obstinacy." Now, if man ever made a bed for himself, "Plain Facts" did it in the last few sentences. A man acts consistently when he adheres to facts established by science and common sense, but when a man stick to an idea because it is his and for no other earthly reason, then he is obstinate and in this particu lar case, obstinacy and "Plain Facts" are synonymous, "Put him in his little bed. ' "Plain facts." even endorsed by figure head facts, has no right to make the statement that "those from other places may safely be presumed to give an opinion on what they don't know anything about," unless he allows that, having himself only "negative proof" he is writing about some thing he knows nothing about. Should "Plain Facts" endeavor to per suade men that the earth remains fixed, and that the gun revolves around the earth, and a majority refuse to support his idea, under what pretext has he any claim to say that ho regarded their refusal as an insult? What has a vote, on the "probability" of the presence of sewage poison in tho water to do with him, his family or his good reliable-citizen friends? "Plain Facts" holds up a bread and but ter idea, but it seems like a threat, at least a warniuK. "As it is," h peaking of the Doc tors, "they ruu the risk of losing the con fidence of the intelligent community." Now, lust he might think somehody was scared, I say "lot them lose." "Charge! Chester, charge I" A community may, without much intelligence, succeed in hum bugging simple-minded country chaps to continue their patronage, buy and sell. (ities have succeeded in concealing the fact that small pox, cholera and other dis eases existed in their midst, for the reason that, should the people know the truth, they would, through tear, shun the city, and trade would suffer. I don't say that "Plain Facts" would be guilty of such a thing, but he evidently would be pleased to have the majority of Doctors agree with him that the water in Rock Island is pure and good and wholesome, and that the little epidemic didn't amount to anything, lie would, no doubt, be pleased to hear "All quiet on the Mississippi." I don't believo the business men of Rock Island would object to the announcement of the nature of the cause, nor of its locality -they are "not that kind of clothes pins." The Union contained much ugeful infor mation on the subject of bacteria, vibrion cs, common salt, etc., and also that the water board "had heard that diarrhoea was ut Milan, Hampton and Port Hyron. about the time it existed in Rock Island." therefore they think there is jnsit.ive rrof that the diseitse is not caused by any ag'-ncy confined to the city. I wouid res ppcttiillv request uny one interested, to address a letter of inquiry, in regard to the facts relating to the disease in Port Ryron, to Dr. Flemmiog, and, while they are in the business, also address Dr. Lit tlefleld, of Meardstown, Illinois, 7'liei have no quarrel with Hock Island water works, and they ean give some information which will be to the point. Hundreds have visited Rock Island, some of them many times, this winter, and in no instance have any had diarrhoea except such as partook of tho water. It is presumed that whisky, added to the water, may and does destroy certain noxious matters in the water, and this fact may account for the boasted escape from the disease, in some cases. It would not do to give the whisky a bad name in Rock Island. No. no, that would cause a greater explosion than the bugal oo "combination" agaiust the wa terworks, and would "hurt business." Dr. Farquharson, in his report, said: "Though tho question of the production of disease from drinking water was not directly submitted to me, 1 may be allowed to state that the cause of disease, such as tho subtle germs of cholera and typhoid lever, may undoubtedly exist in water, and yet lie entirely inappreciable to the sense f man, m matter how well aued In instruments an the microxcojw, and ao to iieucitie tests, i no mos; we can uoiu regaru to ttiese poisons a n 7 them tint r.f , i" l. .1 ""f water, vy lne Ul08t scru pulous care in ti j . i jneventiuf, the folding of, the drinking water hu sewaae uu- HMrw o we uruilema water hu nn. from nLmn rlutu.. .1..... ,1 "'U ..uu UIUUi, uitoc uestructivo enter. agents No people in the civilized world, outside the ctty ot Hock Island, are so ben?ch ed as to believe even large rivers susceptible of furnishing pure wholesome water when taken lrom a point just below what ,..u,,c..y called a chain SL.

If the people ot Kock Island I mean the intelligent, good and reliable citizens get mad because we say we be lieve that excrementitious matters eet into their hydrants and wells, and that they are made sick thereby, and if they cling to their water as to their first love, why. let them call at "Minehaha"if they please.

March S. 1RTT To the Editors of The Argus: Gentlemen: W ill you keeD unfurled the flag of "Hard Money" currency and its so called "equivalent Wild Cat" banks, and suffer a fifth defeat? Or will you, as pro posed by J efferson and Jackson, as bet ter than bank notes, unfurl the Treasury Note or Greenback flag and tri- umpn with Uavis in l80 f I want a Greenback newspaper but I do not want to send for the Aledo Banner. Yours, &o.,'.&o.. 13. G.Wright. The Arqus is always glad to hear from Mr. Wright, and republishes now what it said months ago. that it is in favor of the following principles: 1. Abolish the National banks,and leave the business ot exchange, loans, deposits. etc., to private bankers, like our Mitchell & Lynde banking house. 2. Have no other paper currency but the United States treasury notes (commonly called Greenbacks) and in quantities only necessary for the business of the country, and make them payable in gold, on de mand, at the U. S. sub-treasurer's in the different cities. 3. Make the Greenback convertible into U. S. bonds bearing a low rate of interest And TnE Argus then added the follow ing: If these are the principles of the Green back party, on the currency, we do not see any reason why the Democracy should not adopt them. We do not understand that the Greenback party desire such an infla tion of the currency as to disturb values, or any inflation at all beyond the necessi ties of business.

TIlEhl,EhI, MANY ACCIITJNTY AND FIRES nhur jr ccnr from the use f the ordinary sul niatrv parlor matches. Either kind of these .ies ignite readily upon any surface. To p re nt fire or accidents, which are liable to occur frnm their careless use EPI1KA1M SMITH. 919 St. John St., Philadelphia, invented a match known as "Pennsylvania Safety Match," which needs only one trial for the public to know its importance. Its peculiarity is that it cannot be inn i ted except on the special preparation furnished with each box. They do not emit, any disagreeable odor or make a.iy startling, crackliug sound on being ignited. They contain neither sulphur nor phosphorus, neither are they poisonous. Another important point Is that they are perfectly safe in the hands of children : and the rats and mice carry ing them off can do no damage. Mr. Smith also manufacturers a special rubher to be placed near match Bates, thereby making these matches as con venient as those which lgnitu on any surface. With these improvements they are very desirable for private dwellings land business houses in whith combustible matter is kept. In case one should be dropped on the floor there would be no danger of Its burning the carpet or igniting i by any acciden tal means. Grocers have them for sale.

All English Anvils, after a time, become hollowing on the face by continued hammering in use, on account of the fibrous nature of the wrought iron causing it to 'settle," under the steel.- Bnt the body of the Kagle Anvil being of crys tallized iron, such settling cannot occur; and the steel face therefore remains perfectly true. Also, it has the great advantage, that being of a more solid material, and, consequently, with less re bound, the piece forged receives ihe FULL effect of the hammer, instead of a part of it be ng wasted by the rebound, as with a wrought iron Anvil. More work can therefore be done on this Anvil with a hammer one-fifth lighter than required for a wrought iron Anvil which is more elastic. The working snrface is in one piece of Jisrop's Best Tool Cast Ptekl. accurately gronnd, bard ened and given the proper temper for the heaviest work. The horn is of tough untempered steel.
