CAUSE CLAIMS THE VICTORY.
Knox Seems to Have Been
Defeated at Any Rate.
But There Are Talks of Com
bine For Aldermen.
The primary election condncted
by the republican party in Bock I si
ana Saturday was attended by one
of the most bitter skirmishes that
has ever been known in the history
of either party in the city. The
fight for supremacy was much more
earnest and desperate on the part of
the party within whose limits it was
raging than wonld have been a
struggle against a political loe. The
result of the caucuses, conducted as
they were, .afforded a test of the
merits of the primary election, and
its application proved such a farce
that it was dimcuit to determine
which of the warring factions was the
more pronounced against it Saturday
night. While it was abused in some
wards by the restrictions imposed
oy autocratic judges, who carried
their lcquiries to the extent.
it was oeclared, of impudence,
in others tbe laxity observed
was amusing. The same ele
ment in many instances who were
protesting against non-republicans
voting were rushing men in of con
trary political convictions by
the wholesale in their own be
half. There were any nam
ber of so-called converts admitted to
the ballot box by the very ones who
were denouncing the other lello ws
for doing the same thing, and the
general consequence was a denunci
ation, by all elements, ol the law. It
was regarded as not only an ex pen
sive but an unaecsssarr and intlTict
ual luxury. .
Un the lace ol the returns Carse
claims the victory. The Knox-Uaas
combination, which it has been
sought to conceal, and the existence
ol which had been openly denied.
was fully demonstrated during the
day and was proven beyond question
in the evening, when the men who
had supported Haas were all shown
to be for Knox. The city attorney
had aim ply permitted his name to be
used, and then had thrown his whole
influence into the fight in behalf of
the major, and the result was that
he came out at the little end of the
horn. As for Kennedy and Nelson,
each ol the aspiring aldermen sim
ply oarried his own ward, whereas
the former, through his ticket in the
tilth ward, very plainly saved the
mayor the chagrin oi repudiation in
his own bailiwick. The battle
ground was in the Fourth and Fifth
wards, and in both of them the hard
est fighting was done. The Knox
Haas combination carried both and
that was all. The three lower
were decidedly for Carse. nards
although stiff fights had been put np
in eacn, especially in the Third.
where at one time during the day
Deputy Sheriff Benson, finding
things going against him. cleared
the room of the Carse element, claim
ing that the time had arrived for the
exercise of his duties as a peace offi
cer. The incident served to inten
sify the feeling that prevailed, and
tne representatives there ol the Carse
innnence redoubled their efforts
From that instant it was as much of
a fight against the sheriff's office
Third ward ring as for Carse, and
which ring in the end was effectn
ally put to rout. Kennedy, as said,
held nts own ward, the Sixth, and
Nelson was able to keep tho Seventh
intact for himself.

While Carse will go into the con
vention with a lead he must have a
combination with Kennedy or Nelson
to win, and from the confident way
the cx -mayor views the situation,
some such ombinalioa seem to be
in the air. Nelson conld help Knox
out materially, but in this lies the
ex-mayor's only hope of ga'n, and
this will not ba enough to nominate.
The feeling between Knox and Ken
nedy running throughout the past
year ia auoh that it is unreasonable
to suppose that Kennedy wiil lick
the hand that struck him Inasmuch,
however, as it is largely now a fight
of the field against Carse, Knox may

or Kennedy, or what ia more likely
