The republicans of Rock Islam!
county resemble in some respects the
bands of Coxeyites which are roam-
mg over the land. The common,
wealers are clamoring fur good mails,
but the local republicans are running
over each other to secure good offices!
iue "announcement" columns ot
the republican press are tilli-il t
overflowing with solicitations for
support ny numerous olliee-seekin"'
patriots, and tlte local columns of thn
aforesaid papers are lninl.-no.l
biographical sketches tending to
tickle the vanity of the different as
pirants. We are told that many of
them have "bled" and all but died in
defense of theircountrv, and all have
been straight-out" republicans from
infancy. The cause of this unusual
ly large crop of candidates is un
doubtedly traceable to the republi
can victories, which have recently
been achieved in municipal and vil
lage elections, which the aspirants
conclude are going to continue right
aiong. 11:1 an average maioritv of
mis county, ol course,
there has never !een a dearth of can
didates before a republican county
convention, but the scramble is more
general this year than ever, bv renrn

tion is equal to an election. In fact
it is asserted that a "hobo" could not

A short time since it looked n.
though the Kock Island republicans
would bo magnanimous enough to let
Congressman Tost have a renouiina
tion without opposition, but they
have at last determined to even trv
for that. The political aspirations Jf
ex-C'ongressmau Gesl have been dug
out of the scrap pile in the re
puhiican charm ! house; and a des
pcraic uuempi is lo lie made to re
juvenate and revivify them. Then
there is the statesmau from Edging
ton, who refuses to release the sena
torial plum from his capacious maw.
He is laboring under the impression
that two terms in the lower and one in
the u pper house of the state legisla
ture is not sufficient fur a man of his
towering intcllect.and he demands an
other term ia the senate. Ho ex
pressed himself while in the city the

bodily to Candidate lletneuway al a
proper juncture of the proceedings.
It will not do to be too precipitate in
this action, as the result might be
disastrous in showing that Moline
was dictating the construction of the
entire ticket, which will virtually ba
the case. It is also on the program
to give the trensurership to Fred
Iitterington, as a sop to the lower
end. and also for the purpose of re-
bukin"' the upper end for the Tear-

a tool in their hands. Adams' friends
are makinsr a heroic fight in his lc
half, and may be able to secure him
a renomination, although it looks ex

The democrats are not at all cast
down by the plethora of republican
candidates, nor by the boastings of
their adversaries. For 12 successive
years the democracy have held the

without a struggle. They have won

A MYSTERIOUS HATCHET.
Found In a Cellar on Twentjr-tlrat Street
' Yenterilay. '"' '
Yesterday afternoon Carl Grant, a
machine agent living at 211 Twenty-

tion a hatchet which he thought bore
evidences of having been used for
purposes other than chopping wood,
as clinging to it, Mr Grant reported.

The matter was investigated this

who made a visit to the neighborhood
and gleaned from the neighbors an

and seemed to have something like
traces of hair adhering to it. The
hatchet was given to Grant, and he
examined it thoroughly and eame to
the conclusion that the rust on the
hatchet was that of blood, and that
it had lieen used tor some tout pur
poses, so he took it to the police sta
tion as stated above.

Last January there lived in the

of the gay times of yore still
lingers in the minds of the neigh

Chief Sexton is of the opinion that
no desperate deed was committed
with the hatchet, but that the rust
on it was the result of having been
so long in some damp place.
Mrs. A. Hose, who was arrested for
writing threatening letters to Mag

money thereby, had her hearing yes

Sehroeder and was bound over to the
Circuit Court in $100 bonds.

The Equipment of the Bridge Llae Ar
The new cars for the bridge line of
the Davenport & Rock Island Rail
way company arrived this morning
from St. Louis. They are five in
number, and after being inspected in
the upper Rock Island yards by Sec
retary Lardner and Snpt. Schnitger,
it was determined to ship them over
to Davenport, where they can be un
loaded directly onto the tracks ot the
company without interrupting travel!
No effort will be spared to have the
cars running by next Sunday.
The- cars, which were coni
strftcted by the St. Louis Car
ompany, are numbered 55. 66. 57.
5s and 59, are painted green, the reg
ulation color of the liridge line, and
lettered with the company's name on
the sides and on the dashboards.
The words "Bridge Line" are etched
in the side and end transoms. Thev
are 18 feet long with 12 win
dows, boinir two feet longer than
those now in use, but are lower and
a trifle narrower. They are equip
ped with the most improved elec
trical mechanism, each having two T.
II. 25-horse power inotors, while the
gates ton the platforms, the railing
along the sides protecting the win
dows and other devices contributing
to safety, are of the most improved
pauern. ine cars are provided with
10 incandescent lights to a car with
handsome white porcelain reflectors.
The cars will also be heated by elec
tricity. The interior is gotten up in
accordance with the best skill and
taste of the car building art. The
wood work is of cherry neatly carved.
The ceilings are of veneering highly
ornamented, and running the entire
length of the car directly over the
windows, are modern advertis-
ng racks. The seats are neat
ly upholstered. The windows are
incased in rubber. and in
stead of wooden blinds, curtains
are used, all of which will insure
quiet. The cars arc equal to the
best street railway rolling stoek
manufactured, and the company is
deserving ot praise for thus improv
ing me advantages it has provided
all over its svstcru for the benefit of
the public of the three cities.
