The Geneseo Republic, which by

concerning the agreement reached in
Moliue to concentrate on H. A. Ains
worth for congress:
"This virtually settles the ques
tion of Bock Island's choice. It will
also have decided influence with
Henry county, for Mr. Ainsworth
has but so recently gone from among
us that we still look upon him as a
favorite son. We know him of old,
know that he is a man of highest
integrity, earnest republicanism, and
qualified by large business experi
ence and past legislative duties to
ably represent the district. As state
senator he took rank among the
Ablest men in the closely balanced

the late Gen. John A. Logan as

tory were his public services then
that he would have been renominated
without a dissenting voice had not
his private interests imperatively de
manded that he decline the honor.
We believe we represent the senti
ment of Henry county republicans
when we say that with Mr. Ainsworth
a candidate they will enroll under
his standard if they go outside the

worth, of Moline. If a republican

Gen. Post, then the man from Mo
line cannot be improved upon. He
is not a great speech-maker; he is
not a political schemer, but he is a
successful business man, and one
who has given a great deal of study
to public questions."

STRIKE SITUATION MORE SERIOUS.
Buna CatfcaU rmat at Wark Sar the
Bbookltv, Jan. 8H At the stables of
the cross Una on Kent arenas. Green
Point, the situation Is mote serious than
ever before. Bev. Father O'Hare, who
has charge of the Green Point parish,
spoke to the new motonnen and conduc
tor who were taking out the ears. He
begged them to leave their cars aad Join
the strikers. "Come on men; act like
men and Join the strikers. They will take
care of yon," was his oft repeated request.
And aerer! men Jumped from the ears
amidst the cheers of on-lookera. Big
crowds congregated In the vicinity of the
stables and the tracks were obstructed
with barrels, boxes and refuse.
A good deal of stone throwing wa done
by the mob despite the efforts of Father
O'Hare, who frequently entreated the
men not to use violence. The policemen
charged the mob with their night sticks
and the crowd fell back. Father O'Hare
received a letter from Mayor Schleren,
sent by messenger. The mayor said that
if the disorder at Green Point did not
cease he would at once send the militia
there. Traffic on the Hamilton avenue
line was resumed yesterday afternoon
after twelve days' suspension. The Third
avenue line was operated with scarcely
any interruption and little show of hos
tility. Thirty-five property owners residing
Hicks and Sackett streets sent a petiiw i
to the grand jury denouncing the killing
of Thomas Kearney. The petition de
nounces Major Cochran as a "cold-blooded
murderer." President Lewis, of the
Brooklyn Heights company, has sent out
notices to the strikers that he will take
back enough to fill vacancies on the com
pany's terms. The state arbitration com
mission examined Presidents Lewis and
Norton as to the strike. They asked
Mayor Schleren to attend, but he posi
At 5:U p. m. the trolley wires that were

avenue were repaired and the half-hundred
cars which had been stalled on both
tracks for four hours proceeded on their

was the most encouraging day for him
since the beginning of the strike, basing
his belief on the fact that many new men
are deserting the companies, which is a
fact without doubt. He says it is done
without violence or intimidation. A pe
culiar part of this matter is that In this
day of dissemination of news the new
men say they did not know there was a

Mills Takes the Floor.
Mills then rose to make the speech on
the Hawaiian queetlon he had given notice
of. There was much Interest manifested
and the senator was followed with mark
ed attention. At the outset Mills went
out of the beaten path and arraigned the
sugar interest as responsible for the con
stant excitement over Hawaii. "It is an
old story," said Mills, with great earnest
ness. "There is a powerful sugar inter
est In this country and in Hawaii. It is
an interest demanding that tho great
power of the United States be exercised
in its behalf. This interest is manifesting
itself in the United States senate in de
mands for Intervention in the affairs of
Hawaii. It is manifesting itself in an ar
raignment of the president of the United
States because he does not use the power
of the United States navy to maintain its
Interest In Hawaii." Mills proceeded to
lay down the proposition that the senate
was going too far in directing the execu
tive branch as to what use it should make
of the navy or the army.
A Straaga Doctriae.
It was a strange doctrine, said Mills,
that the legislative branch should as
sume the prerogative to direct another
branch of government what it should do.
"If the legislative branch can calf on the
executive branch," declared Mills, "then
it can call on the judicial branch. We
will then be able to call on the chief ju
dicial body of the country to furnish us
Information as to why they affirmed the
legality of the legal tender act."
Mills declared that If this doctrine was
conceded then the executive branch was
powerless. The president of the United
States could be brought to the bar of the
senate at any time to give his reasons or
to direct his course. It would be a sorry
moment far the American people when
their executive head was thus made the
creature of the senate or the legislative
branch of the government.
