There has not been so much dicker
ing and combining in a political con
vent ion in Rock Island before. The
strategic work began at the open
ing, wnen me uomns boys, one from
the Fourth and one from "the Fifth as
sumed the reins of manipulation.
Their first object was to nominate
Knox for major, no matter who per-
tsneu in me - attempt. I hen the
sought vindication of the county
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
oi imam Mcuonochie, but it
knocked him out as the chairman of
the city-township committee as well.
and elevated the ihird 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 qualitication for
the olhce is the fact of bis being in
with the Collins-Knox pull. The
other candidates were made subser
vient to the same influence.

Chairman McConochie called the
convention to order promptly on the
dot at 7:3J. J here bad been a ner
vousness manifest in the ex-mayor's
demeanor throughout the evening.
His was the air of one who had an in
evitable ordeal before him. and like
the man who was going to be bunj;,
was anxious to have it over with, as
long as it could not be helped. The
execution came in the season and the

fully as it is possible to do it.
Upon the chairman's suggestion
that the nrst duty was the nomina
tion of a chairman. Mai. J. M
Beardsley proposed E. E. l'armenter
for temporary presiding oflicer. He
was duly elected. Mr. i'artnen
ter flaunted in the convention's
face the fact that he had
rijrht to make a speech if he chose.
but owing to the business before the
convention he would waive the privi
lege. John Rinck was suggested by
J. J. Ingram as temporary secretary
ana duly elected. Mr. Kinck read
the call and the convention was ready
fr business. Thereupon Mai
Bcardr-ley moved that the temporary
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 the 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 the ward caucuses. Chair
man Collins, however, who was de
tested in the Fourth ward caucus be
came a delegate through the courte
sv of J. H. Liedtke, from the
Fourth, and he was very much
in it. In fact he usurped the
rights of tbe dclepation chairman.
Mr. Jackeon, and did most of
the talking; briefly he run things.
Maj. Beardsley was again on his feet
with a motion that 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. The convention
approved of the suggestion. The
chair was authorized to appoint
three tellers and he named John Kol
loff, J. J. Ingram and C. W. Foss.
The Flcht for Brad of the Ticket.
An informal ballot for mavor with
out nominations was ordered, and i
developed candidates and strength
as follows: B. F. Knox. 24: Henry
Carse, 12; William McConocbie, 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 tbe ltth ballot
the one who had stood by him went
outside the field and cast one for
Donaldson, bnt then came back into
the list before the convention, but
McConochie was no more. The
strength of the other candidates
wavered, bnt the sending of two
rotes to Schroeder in the 14th ballot
did the business, the Third ward
taking the bait and going over to
Knox with the understanding that
tbe 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
gates made a break, the Fifth ward
crowd became excited and plumped
its rote twice, wnicb witn other
irregularities made a showing of 11
more votes man we convention was
entitled to. Delegate Jackson de
manded an explanation as there bad
been other irregular ballots daring
the evening, but Teller Fobs hastened
to make explanation, as to tbe tilth
ward having voted its quota twice.

formal ballot first, which brought
out candidates as follows: C. F.
