THE FIGHT IS ON.
Republican County Convention
in Full Sway.
LIVELf TIME AT THE OPERA HOUSE
remanent Organization Effected, County
Committee and Committees to Select
Delegates to Other Conventions Ap.
pointed at the Morning SeMion Adams
Tor Judge. Kohler for Clerk, end Hem
enwsy for Sheriff.
It was all that was expected of it.
With so much to contend with,
with so many complications and
combinations surrounding ;tt w;th
so much of the internecine strife
raging, with so much individual en
ergy for self-aggrandizement pre
vailing, the party was overw helmed
by the situations, and fell subservi
ent to the dic tates of those who,
through strategy and experience.'
were powerful enough to control it.
It was a pitiful spectacle to those
who. foe years past, had witnessed
the party surmount obstacles, and
who, on this occasion, saw but the
intercropping of the power within.
There was no evidence of a great
party asserting itself today.
The preliminary skirmishes that
have been in progress for the past
two months, were carried on up to
the last moment. While there was
more activity yesterday, if possible,
than on any previous day, culminat
ing in various conditional combina
tions of the "you scratch my back,
I scratch jours" order, the most
ambitious candidates did not suspend
their energies until the last un was
It became apparent last night thai
Judge Adams had decidedly the best
of it for renontination, while it was
freely conceded that Kohler would
find but little opposition in his path
for receiving the convention's appro
bation. Nevertheless, Kohlerdid not
rest well. He felt riled and uglv
generally toward all mankind, lie
didn't want anyone to talk to him,
but he felt, at times, like talking a
good deal himself and he did. He
lost control of himself, jH-rmitted an
gry passion to sway his proud soul,
sputtered like a gilly, and acted like
a loon. For a man who was san
guincly impressed, his demeanor was
considerably ruffled, and he boarded
a car for Moline with an air at outs
with all mankind, the little epi
sode of the day having evidently had
a most disastrous and depressing ef
fect on the colonel's over sensitive
To Down Hcutcnway.
Last night the Atkinson and Eck
hart forces effected a combination to
beat Hemenway if possible the
agreement was short and simple. If
Atkinson developed the strength, Eck
hart was to throw his influence to
him on condition that he was to have
the deputyship in the event of suc
cess, and if Eckhart was to manifest
the more strength of the two, Atkin
son was 1o act likewise.
Among the candidates for county
superintendent, there were variois
attempts at combinations, but the
appearance of Charles Ege, of Cordo
va, as a "dark horse at the last mo
ment so In-fuddled the friends of the
various aspirants that compromise or
even an "intelligent understanding"'
was out of the question. The situa
tion as to treasurer was left contin
gent on the action of the convention
as to the other nominations.
It was not to be disguised that
Moline would have considerable to
say alout the ruling spirit of the
convention. Having landed Kohler
in advance, the delegation from that
city retained the balance of power
to name the sheriff and control the
deputy, and with this condition and
the others noted facing it, the con
From the time the sun made his
first bluff at aptiearanee until the
hour announced for the gathering of
the convention, the streets swarmed
with candidates and delegates, block
ading the streets at several corners,
and many of the emissaries button
holing every passer-by. It was ap
parent, even to the most casual ob
server, that Moline had come down
fully prepared to rule the roost, ami
if there was nothing in the prelimi
naries to reveal such a purpose.
Mayor Ilcnnett jgave the thing away
later, when, on assuming the chair,
he pulled from his pocket the lists
of Moline candidates for the various
places at the convention's disjtosal,
and rend them as they were to be
provided for, explaining at the same
time, however, that this was not a
cut and dried scheme on Moline's
Called to Order.
Though Chairman Keator, who was
boss of the situation within the the
atre, attempted to call the conven
tion to order at the appointed hour,
it was 11:20 when all the delegates
were seated according to ward or
precinct. At that time Chairman
Heater and Secretary Searle ap
proached the center of the stage to
gether, the manner of their appear
ance proving, as was intended, a
stage play, eliciting applause from
the audience. Mr. Keator called the
convention to order, and Mr. Searle,
obedient to his bidding, read the
The first thing in order being the
nomination of a temporary chairman.
Dr. C. B. Kinyon was at once on his
feet to present the name of Capt. W.
C. Bennett, mayor of Moline. Wil
liam Jackson amended the motion to
the effect that Capt. Bennett be de
clared the permanent chairman. The
motion carried with unanimity and
the result was greeted with hearty
applause. Mr. Keator received the
chairman in the wings of the theatre
am), escorting him to the front, in
troduced him. The captain expressed
his appreciation of the honor con.
ferred, and spoke of the size and im
portance of the convention. He re
alized the duties before him and the
extent to which it might tax his abil
ity before he got through with it. He
made a plea for good nature and
harmony in the proceedings. To
aid in carrying out that aim, Maj.
Beardsley slipped up behind the
chairman and placed a claw hammer
on his table.
The nomination of a secretary be
ing in order, W. n. Edwards named
F. C. Denkmann, and Horst von
Koeckritz suggested William Jack
son. The later withdrew in favor of
Mr. Denkmann as the permanent
secretary, and the convention ap
proved of the proposition. The
chair suggested that delegates on
arising to speak give their names and
ward or precinct they represented.
The next business being the selec
tion of a committee on credentials.
Delegate Carpenter, of Moline, pro
posed a committee composed of
seven, and the following were duly
elected: William Jackson and Thomas
Smart, of Kock Island; Dr. Froek, of
Cordova; John S. Bruner, of Buffalo
Prairie; George E. Brown, of Black
Hawk; Charles A. Barnard and It. A.
Smith, of Moline.
A committee of seven 011 resolu
tions was thercujKjn selected com
posed of: C. L. Walker and Dr. C.
B. Kinyon, of Rock Island; Charles
Spickler, of Drury; F. E. Rogers, of
l'ort Bvron: J. M. Hutchinson, of
Rural, and D. O. lleed and F. A.
Lande, of Moline.
Delegate Jackson moved the ap
pointment of 10 to report delegates
to the state, congressional and legis
lative conventions, on the recon
vening of the convention in the after
noon. Delegate Morgan, of Moline,
offered as an amendment a motion
for the appointment of three com
mittees, each of seven members, to
appoint the delegates resjiectively
to the various conventions. The
amendment prevailed. The commit
tees were thereupon appointed as
To select delegates to state con
vention: H. H. Holland and Albert
Johnson, of Rock Island; G. Tucker,
of Buffalo Prairie: F. II. Cooper, of
South Moline; A. F. Hollister, of
Coe; William Butter worth and J.
W. Morgan, of Moline.
To Select Delegates to the Con
gressional Convention William Jack
son and C. W. Foss, of Rock Island;
Dr. Bendle, of Drnry; G. E. Brown,
of Black Hawk; Clark Corbin, of Car
bon Cliff; Orcar Peal and C. H. Per
rin, of Moline.
To Select Delegates to the Senator
ial Convention L. S. McCabe and
J. R. Hollowbush. Kock Island;
James B. Clark, Bowling; I. A. Men
tcer, of South Moline; Dr. John ltei
ter, of Zuma, and C. F. Grantz
and S. S. Crompton, of Moline.
The chair suggested the appoint
ment of a county central committee
then and there, and Delegate Morgan
proposed the appointment of a com
mittee of seven in the same manner
that the other committees had been
named. Delegate Sinionson amended
the motion to the effect that the con
vention name the committee mem
bers, and the amendment being
adopted, the convention proceeded
with its task with the following re
sult: Cordova S. S. Cool.

The names thus presented were
confirmed by the convention.
Hilly Mason to the Fore.
Delegate Bennett then suggested
that inasmuch as Hon. W. E. Mason,
of Chicago, was present, he be in
vited to address the convention. The
idea was accepted, and Maon ap
peared. - He made one of his char
acteristically funny speeches, sacri
ficing logic for humor and sarcasm;
said present hard times were all due
to the democratic party and the
Wilson bill; that the Coxey army
movement was likewise chargeable
to democratic policy, and declared
that the republican party would
again get into power,, pass the Force
bill again with his aid; that Swift
had been rightfully elected mayor
of Chicago, over Hopkins at the last
election because they had no force
bill there. He condemned the rule
of the senate which provides for sen
atorial courtesy, called the upper
house of congress a house of lords,
waved the bloody shirt, and retired.
The Afternoon Session.
Every available seat on the first
floor of the theatre was occupied, and
the galleries were well filled when
the convention reassembled this af
ternoon. Dr. Truesdale offered a set
of resolutions which he desired to
have read to the convention. Under
the rule of the convention, they
should have been submitted to the
committee on - resolutions first, but
the doctor was anxious to have them
read, and altera number of conflict,
ing motions, the convention consent
ed to having the resolutions read at
