rest. The republicans helped them
selves to all tbey conld lay their
hands on and would like to have had
more. Yet the democrats made a
gallant stand against the enemy in
the face of the tremendous odds
against them. There were many
things that operated to the advant
age of the party triumphant. The
increased vote was one thing, and
the democrat! not having the
inexhaustible funds at their disposal
for every outlay incident to a great
campaigo, could not secure the ad
vance tally estimate that the local
adherents of Mark Hanna were en
abled to. Further than that the re
publicans of Rock Island county had
the most superb party organization
in U'jck Island countthe republican
party has ever had. The republican
management throughout the state
looked upon Rock Island county as
having the banner organization of
the party. Never was so much prac
tical political work done by the re.
publicans either in a systematic or
demonstrative manner. The demo
crats, however, took their stand and
they held their own even in the face
of the obstacles to success. 1
The democrats saved the member
of the legislature from the wreck in
the election of Willi am McEoiry, and

Whea enough news had been re
ceived from which to base a conclusion
as to the general result, the Mc Kin-
ley adherents in Bock Island became
wild and uncontrollable. They got
out the Lincoln club band and with
bazoos, horns, tin pans and cowbells,
they marched np Second avenue and
then down again, at the same time
creating a din. in the midst of which
the inspiring strains of "Marching
Through Georgia" by the bsnd were
almost drowned. It was confusion
made manifest, bedltm let loose it
was a crowd drunk with dolight and
excitement, and it marched and
yelled until it was exhausted. Some
of the eathusiaits were still screach
ing at daylight this morning, and
they have been keeping it up all day.
This morning a broom bearing bri
gade was formed at the republican
tent and started out to parade the
