Pursuant to the call of Chairman

the court house for the purpose of se

nominate a successor to Judge A. A.

The delegates started to gather about
10 o'clock, a full attendance be ng on

Called te Order.
At 11 o'clock Boss Collins mounted
the rostrum in the court room,
looked over the assemblage, and rap
ped the convention to order. Steve
then read the call. The next thing
in order then was the selection of a
temporary chairman. Boss Collins
named J. T. Haas, and he was unan
imously chosen. The city attorney
highly appreciated the 'honor be
stowed upon him at the hands of the
convention, expressing his elated
feelings in a brief way.
William Jackson nominated W. F.
Eastman, of Moline, secretary, and
he was unanimously chosen.
J. T. Browning, of Moline, moved
that a committee of seven on creden
tials be appointed by the chair. The
motion prevailed, and the chair
named Spencer Mattison, William
Atkinson. W. F. Eastman, Axel Koh

Preparing the Preliminaries.
ine Kock Island delegates to to
day's convention met last evening at
i no iiincoin ciuo rooms lor the pur
pose of agreeing, if possible, on con
certed action, and selecting a dele
gate at large. Hon. H. C. Cleavcland
was called upon to preside, and S.
VY. Searle was elected secretary. W.
P. Quayle received the distinction of
being selected delegate at large.
Any attempt to agree upon a can
didate was found out of tne question,
so many preferences existing within
the Rock Island delegation. There
were found to be many personal
inclinations to Bigelow, of Henry, yet
there was a feeling among some of
of the more prominent delegates that
it would be policy to coincide with
the Knox delegation and confer upon
that county the candidate, and thus
get the endorsement of that countv
for the continuance of a Rock Island
county man on the bench in the office
Judge Pleasants now holds. How
ever, as stated, no definite plan of
concerted action was formulated.
Other Counties Represented.
At the county convention todar.

vacancy were represented, Knox com

Apropos of the Knox county dele
gation, it is interesting as well as
gratifying to know that Clark E.
Carr was not at the head of it. It
will be remembered that Thompson
was the choice of the republicans
there from the first, although Wil
liams was a candidate, but the latter
seeing how things were going, with
drew. Just about that time Carr got
back to Galcsburg from the big Tom
Reed meeting in Chicago. He did
not like the idea of the republicans
of Knox doing anything in his ab
sence, so he saw Williams and rees
tablished his claims to candidacy,
and took charge of matters himself,
but when the the Knox county con
vention was held, Carr was effectu
ally sidetracked and Thompson en
dorsed. From the fact that Wil
liams is here today working for the
Knox candidate, it does not look as

The transfer of the county offices
to those elected at the late election
was completed last evening, when C.
D. Gordon turned the sheriff's office
into the keeping of F. C. Hemcnwav.
The results of the election have
brought about the retirement from
the public service of two of the most
efficient county officials that have
ever served the people, in Sheriff
Gordon and Superintendent Mar
shall. Mr. Gordon by his ever cour
teous demeanor and faithfulness to
duty and the capable manner in
which he has discharged his duties,
has won many friends whose good
wishes will follow him in whatever
pursuit in life he may hereafter en
gage. County Snpt. Marshall's adminis
tration of our county 6chool system
has been a notable one. He has in
augurated pronounced reforms and
has shown himself to be not onlv an
able and thoughtful instructor, but
a man or great executive force with
peculiar cratibcation for the work he
has had in hand, and proper concep
tion oi me ocbi interests ol our pub
lic school system. His deeds have
made him known and he mav ever
view with pride the work he inaug
urated as Rock Island county's su
perintendent of schools.
The opening of the new rvmna
