It was first blood for the Ainsworth

caucus of republicans of the Tenth
congressional district and of Rock
Island county in mis district, ine
Gest contingent, wore a wear
ied, worried look at the con
clusion of the events of the
day, as it was clearly apparent that
so far as Knck island county
is concerned the Ainsworth crowd
had the best of it. Another thing
that made the Grstites tired was the
deTelopment of the hostility that is
felt to their candidate in other coun
ties of the district particularly in
Knox. There, it seems, Gest is re
garded as a political foe. They rec
ognise down in Knox that the only
opposition that came to the
time-honored custom of permitting
the sitting member in a reconstruct
ed district to be retained was from
Gest's friends, and still fresher in
their memories is the unsightly spec
tacle of Gest coming; out for the suc
cession before their dead congress
man ooay naa oeen auverea to
them for burial. Beyond this, too,
they feel that having been conceded
the right to name the congressman
in the new district, they should
be permitted to nil the place once
given them by the district, but
of ' which death robbed them.
Furthermore, they maintain that
Gest is alone responsible for the
rivalry that has sprung up be
tween the north and south end of
the district, and that had it not been
for his eagerness there would have
been no opposition manifested to
their providing for the vacancy that
misfortune created. In still another
sense they remember down in Knox
the opposition that Gest led to Judge
Smith's renomination fur jutge, and
that afterward, when the latter s res
ignation occurred, he was one of the
foremost in knocking out the Knox
county candidate. Thompson, for the
succession. Hence it is that while
Knox county is determined to make
a fight for the nomination, that coun
ty will not be apt to undertake t
swallow the chilly-coated Ueet pill
under any circumstances, no matter
who may be the political physician
who prescribes it, or the desperau-
condition that may make it advisa
ble. So that while struggling for
their rights, Knox county worthies
will be likewise struggling with
equal positiveness against what they
believe to be wrong.

Mrs. Schwatka spoke for an hour
of the travels and interesting inci-

her husband, in which she generally
participated. The subject for the
afternoon was Cliff and Cave Dwell

dwellers and those who lived in caves
in the cliffs, which was about the
only characteristic to distinguish
them. She described their home
life, manner and customs, their re
ligion, their sport, how they hunt
and fish. Her description of their re

Palmer house, according to the Mo-

partnership arrangement for the
manufacture of electric batteries, the
amount being sufficient to obtain a
half interest in the patent, which
Craig assured his loaner would real

Mrs. Piper to buy the furnishings
of a residence at 2634 Prai

could sell the property in a few
weeks for a much larger amount than

working another aristocratic widow
