The perpltxlties thsU confront the

Carse-corner clique is the cry of the
element who pinned their faith to
the Knox Haas combination. Mayor
Knox is in a quandary. Me is in the
predicament of a man who wants to
do something, who thinks ha can do
it, but does not know exactiy how.
Tne only satisfaction that remains
for him in the existing situation re
poses in the opportunities for re

The geographical phase of the situa

to uarse and make him the nominee,
although it is not beyond the range
of possibility that tha Kennedv men
may be held in their ward until
enough delegates are coaxed over
from the neighboring Seventh to
nominate tne up town man. These
same tactics maybe applied with the
hope of nominating Nelson by baiting
votes from th S xih. There may be

Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Thee, of
Davenport, were thrown from a
buggy on Third avenue near the via
duct approach abont 8 o'clock last
evening, but fortunately escaped any
more serious injury than a bad shak
ing up. Their horse became fright
ened at a street car which was mov
ing east, and started down the ave
nun at a lively gait, colliding with a
road cart, and capsizing and damag
ing the buggy, which' belongs to a
Davenport liveryman, to the extent
of abont 25. The horte continued
its run down as far aa the postoffice,
