The "Entire Ticket the Keeatt of a Com
bine. They had a "deal" of a time at the
republican city-townsbip convention
at the court house Saturday night.
There has not been so much dicker
ing and combining in a political con
vention in Bock Island before. The
strategic work began at the open
ing, when the Collins boys, one from
the Fourth and one from'the Fifth as
sumed the reins of manipulation.
Their first object was to nominate
Knox for mayor, no matter who per
ished in the attempt. Then they
sought vindication of the countV
board in its extreme devotion to
them by the renomination of
Assistant Supervisors Sinnet and
Oberg. Both these objects ac
complished, the rest was of second
ary consideration, but it was all
agreeable to Collins. The conven
tion not only ended the public career
of William McConochie, but it
knocked him out as the chairman of
the city-township committee as well,
and elevated the Third ward aspir
ant to the chairmanship as a part of
his reward for insuring Knox of the
nomination. It nominated for clerk
the present alderman from the First
ward, whose only qualification for
tne ouiee is tne lact of bis being in
with the Collms-Knox pull. The
other candidates were made subser
vient to the 6arae influence.
The Calling to Order the Last Political
Act of Wily Bill.
Chairman McConochie called the
convention to order promptly on the
dot at 7:3 J. I here baa been a ner
vousness manifest in the ex-mayor's
demeanor tbrougbout tbe evening.
His was the air of one who bad an in
evitable ordeal before him. and like
the man who was going to be bun;,
was anxious to have it over with, as
long as it could ijot be helped. The
execution came in the season and the
Wily William met his political doom
wun cairn resignation. lie was
quietlv, but surely put out of
the business turned down as grace
fullv as it is possible to do it.
Upon the chairman's suggestion
that the first duty was the nomina
tion or a chairman. Mai. J. AI.
Beardsley proposed E. E. l'armenter
for temporary presiding officer. He
was duly elected. Mr. 1'armen
ter flaunted in the convention's
face the fact that he had a
right to make a speech if he chose.
but owing to the business before the
convention he would waive tbe privi
lcsre. John Kinck was suggested by
J. J. Ingram as temporary secretary
ana auiy elected. Air. Kinck read
the call and the convention was read v
for business. Thereupon Mai
Beardsley moved that the temporarv
organization be made permanent.
This carried, and then the major had
another motion. It was that the
chairmen of the different ward dele
gations submit their lists to tbe sec
retary, that he might read them
This idea, too, like the mayor's two
previous ones, met with the conven
tion's favor. The credentials were
submitted and read, showing but a
few proxies and substitutes for those
named in tbe ward caucuses. Chair,
man Collins, however, who was tie
feated in the Fourth ward caucus be
came a delegate through the courte
sy of J. H. Liedtke, from the
Fourth, and he was very much
in it. In fact he usurped the
rights of tbe delepation chairman.
Mr. Jackson, and did most of
the talking; briefly he rnn things.
Maj. Beardsley was again on his feet
with a motion tnat each ward cast
the full vote of the delegation. Prof
Foss offered a substitute that the
delegation be authorized to fill any
vacancies that might occur. Nomi
nations for mayor were now declared
in order, and J. D. Warnock's motion
to proceed with an informal ballot
was adopted. A wise idea struck J
J. Ingram that nominating speeches
be dispensed with, lhe convention
approved of the suggestion. The
chair was authorized to appoint
three tellers and he named John Kol-
lofl. J. J. Ingram and C. W. Foss.
Tbe Ficht for Head of the Ticket.
An informal ballot for mavor with
out nominations was ordered, and it
developed candidates and strength
as follows: is. t. Knox, 24; Henry
Carse, 12; William McConochie, 10:
F. II. Schroeder. 8; William Ken
nedy. 13. Then followed 16 formal
ballots before the decisive vote that
carried the honors to the Fifth ward
candidate. In the meantime there
was all kinds of voting. McCono-
chie's strength gradually diminished
from tbe first, and in the l?th ballot
the one who had stood by him went
outside the field and cast one for
Donaldson, but then came back into
the list before the convention, but
McConochie was -bo more. The
strength of the other candidates
wavered, but tbe sending of two
votes to Schroeder in the 14th ballot
did the business, the Third ward
taking the bait and going over to
Knox with the understanding that
the favor was to come back when the
time came to name a city clerk can
didate bnt the favor came not. as
after . events testified. Other dele
gate made a break, the Fifth ward
crowd became excited and plumped
its vote twice, which with otber
irregularities made a showing of 11 ,
more votes man me convention was
entitled to. Delegate Jackson de
manded an explanation as there bad
been other irregular ballots during
the evening, but Teller Foss hastened
to make explanation, to the Fifth
ward baving voted its quota twice.

Delegate Edwards moved to make
the nomination unanimous, which
was carried. The nominee being
called for, Mr. Knox mounted the
rostrum and was duly introdnced
and returned his thanks for the
houor, and pledged his support for
the entire republican ticket.
For City Clerk.
Then came the contest over the
nomination for city clerk, with an in
formal ballot first, which brought
out candidates as follows: C. F.
Bladel, 38; J. F. Munger, 16; W. J.
Uarrold, 10; W. Zies. 3. The formal
ballot nominated the First ward
alderman as follows: Bladel, 40;
Munger. 24; Zies, 3. The Fifth had
not done the Third any good that
anybody could see.
Mr. Bladel was thereupon declared
the nominee and was called for and
expressed his thanks. He would do
all he could for the republican ticket,
and expected his friends to do the

22. It was another irregular ballot,
with a total of 74. Another ballot
was ordered which gave Haas 53;

The nomination for city treasurer
being in order, Robert Chamberlin
was nominated by J. T. Francis, and
Charles A. Spencer by Dr. E. M. Sala.
A formal ballot was ordered, and it
gave: Chamberlin, 37; Spencer, SI.
The result indicated one vote too
many, and another ballot was essen

Chamberlin was declared the nomi

Nominations for assistant super

were named. A ballot was decided
upon with the understanding that
two names were to be placed on each
ballot, tbe two receiving the highest
number of votes, providing it be 34
or over, be declared tbe nominees.
The count showed: Crubangh, 16;

The Ballot for Collector.
The convention proceeded next
with the nomination of a candidate
for collector. Henry Holland, Frank
Burger, Fred Hillier, William Baker
and Samuel Nelson were presented.
Maj. Bcardslcv moved an informal
ballot. It resulted: Baker, 16;
Holland. 18; Hillier, 14; Burger, 10;
Nelson 9. Then followed a scene
that was highly entertaining. Ap
parently there was a feeling some
where that somebody had not been
acting square. Frof. Foss went
over into the First ward crowd and
for the instant abandoned his' school
room mannerism and language. He
was plainly ruffled, and the extremes
of tbe city geographically speaking,
met and had it out. Prof. William
son seconding the alderman in all
that he said. At the same time the
Fifth and Second ward delegates
were caucussing, but no decisive
vote came until the fifth formal bal
lot, when Baker and Hillier com
bined. (and sent Holland glimmer
ing when be was within one of tbe
nomination, and at tbe same time
fixed it up for Freeman for assessor.
