The republican primaries held in
Rock Island and Moline last evening
left the situation as between the two
cities on congressional preferences a
stand-off, Kock Island choosing (iest
delegates in every ward, while Mo
line selected with an aim single to
the promotion of the Ainsworthian
aspirations. In the last named city
everything was unanimous. Not so
in bock Island. The lower three
wards were solid for the ambitious
Kock Island politician, but he win
obliged to light for what he got be
yond that, a fact that was not par
ticularly complimentary to him,
where the lines of local prejudices
had been so closely drawn by his own
Ia the Gnt Wards.
In the lower wards everything ran
smoothly, but there was'a spirit of
unrest in the proceedings, a manifest
disposition to get through with busi
ness as soon as possible and out of
the reach of surprise parties. In
fact, in the Third ward Steve Hull
mentioned the fact that they were
anxious to get to business promptly
on tne uoi ana to ret through as soon
as possible, as a citizen of influence in
the .ward was expected to swoop
down with 'his gang from over the
slough and upset things." The bus
iness was finished up in just 12 min
utes, and Steve got his crowd out be
fore the swoop came. In the First
ward Thomas Smart was chairman,
aud Aid. Charles liladcl secrttarv.
Alfred Coyne, William Schnert and
illiara McGarvey were the tellers.
In the Secoad ward, Henry Carse was
chairman and Walter Johnson secre
tary. L. V. Kckhart and B. F. Do
Gear were tellers. In the Third
ward Dr. C. B. Kinyon was chair,
man and W. H. Jordan secretary.
The tellers "judges" as they were
called were named in this order:
Aid. Fred Schroeder. K. A. Donald
son and William Ramskill. Capt. Ran
som knew he had something to do, and
he responded to the name of Ram
skill for teller and did the work, the
confusion of names, however, having
no effect in carrying out the projram.
as previously prepared. The Fourth
ward caucus was held at the Ho. S
school, and this led to a little misun
derstanding, many going first to the
acenstoroed place the old Dimick
barn on I bird avenue. City Attor
ney Haas was elected chairman on C.
I" Walker's motion before Ward
Committeeman Spencer Mattison had
recovered his breath after reading
the call. J. J. Ingram was, on mo
tion of C. L. Walker, elected secre
tary. J. T. Xoftsker explained that
as there were two factions present a
teller be appointed from each.
The idea was endorsed and Spencer
Mattison and Sam Arndt were
named. The ballot proceeded with
the understanding that the 10 receiv
inli the highest number of votes be
the delegates. The lines were sharp
ly drawn and only straight tickets
were deposited. At the proper sig
nal. Chairman Haas, with the sanc
tion of the caucus, declared the bal
lots closed, and despite the cries of
no, fraud, etc., the mandate
was enforced, and although it was de
clared that 20 of those present had not
voted, the chair was firm and the count
proceeded with the result as given
below. In this ward there was con
siderable ugly feeling displayed, the
outcropping of which was the spill
ing of crimson gore on the snow out
side afterward, Jim Maucker landing
heavily on Jim Thompson, a healer.

suasion as between Gest and Ains
worth being first for one and then
for the other for some days. He was
abusive last night, and a portion of
the crowd which seemed to delight in
the pugilistic spectacle, applauded
Kothlag Like Being Solid With the Board.
The Fifth ward caucus was so jam
med when Capt. T. J. Kobinson, who
had been selected to act as master of
ceremonies, arrived, that he could
not get in. But Cap" had a
pu!l with President Bobbins of
the board of education, who
placed the assembly room of the
Kock Island High school at the
disposal of the crowd, the first time
in the history of Rock Island that a
Cublic school, in daily use as such,
as been converted into a political
caucus. But everything went last
night, and so did the crowd to the
High school. The deal with Evans
went, and also an order that every
one ba.'Ining for delegates be re-
coided. There were two challenges,
but neither was enforced. Hon. II.
C. Cleaveland was made chairman,
and made a speech, advising demo
crats not to "play in our yard."
Fred Rinck was secretary and
William Reck and Charles Spencer
were recording clerks, while Wi liam
Gansert and George Schoessel were
t -Hers. In the Sixth ward State's At
torney Sesrl wts chairman and
Magistrate W. F. Schroeder was sec
retary. All. Kennedy was "jndge"
and "Robert Lynn and Lewis Fr nt
tellers. The proceedings were
pushed through as rapidly as pos
sible, and there were ten or a dozen
ia the honse when the ballots were
closed who were not permitted to
vote. In the Seventh ward E. H.
Gover was chief manipulator
