votes the machine looked on compla

into tbe teens in the ballots, a feel

developed into grave anxiety as the
20th was reached, and tin a as it

Caree to the extect that was essen

painful. Suspicions of. treacherv
datted into the minds of the machine
leaders; this gave way to indignation
and the corner" was jast working
itself into a rage when the 35th bal
lot came and tbe business was done.
BUI Edwards surely looked wise and
winked. The boys had had their fun
and had impresse'd the machine with
the importance of the Sixth ward el
ement at least. "The corner" organ
ized the conventiont. atd Dr.
Kyster's successful motion at the
outset for an open ballot enabled the
rnliDg element to direct its forces
and prevent betrayal.
Caree made an inroad into the
Fifth ward earlv in the game, taking
one delegate there which remained
with him to the last. Thereafter it
was merely a question of time when
the Sixth ward would fulfill its part
ot the compact. The mavoraltv
nomination settled, and "the corner"
having demonstrated that it was in
the saddle, it remained but ti com

own allies, such as Sam Arndt fell

who had failed to discover with
which faction he had cast his lot un
til it was too late. Supervisors Sin

The Convention ProceeClon.
The court house was packed to the
doors when the hour for calling the
convention bad arrived. Many were

and it was arranged through L. V
r.citnart to noia tbe meeting at
Turner hall. This was the signal for
a general ecram Die amcng tbe peo
pie, who were packed in the loom
like sardines. They stumbled, and
climbed, and pushed, and finally the
delegate were seated in Turner hall.

C. J. Searle moved to make the
organization permanent. H. C.
Cleaveland arose to a point of order.
He understood that the organization
was permanent when the chairman
was selected. Tbe chairman did not
coincide with the objector's view.
C. J. Searle put his motion and it
Dr. G. L. Eyster moved that the
convention proceed with an informal
ballot for mayor, and that the ballots
be rpsn. This was carried. Fred
Rinck, Mayer Rosccfield and G. H.
McKowrn were appointed tellers.
J. N. Huntoon moved that there be
no Fpeech making in presenting can
didates. All were with him.
The informal battle gave tbe First,
Second and Third wards to Cars; the
Fourth and Fifth to Knox: Sixth to!
Kennedy, and Seventh to Nelson.
The vote ttood: Caree, 43; Knox,
28; Nelson, 19; Kennedy, 13 And
thus tbe lines were drawn. The first
formal ballot did cot change the re
sult. Twenty ballots were taken be
fore there was a break. This oc
curred ' in tbe Fourth and Fifth
wards, the former giving 5 to Ken
nedy, 8 to Nelson and 1 to Knox, and
the latter 6 to Kennedy, 6 to Nelson,
and 1 to Ccrse. This made the candi
dates stand: Carse, 44; Nelson, 83;
Kennedy, 2!; Knox, 1. Oa the 25th
ba'.lot there was another slight shift
in the vote ofthe central w&ids, the
Fourth now giving 4 to Kennedy, 9 to
Nelson and 1 to Knox; and the fifth
7 to Kennedy, 5 to Ne.'sm
and 1 to Carse. This did
not chance the result, howeTer.
On the 32.1 ballot tbe Fifth came
down on "the corner" with ail the
strength at its command, but one
delegate holding out araitst the
deal to land the prize for Nelson and
remaining faithful to Carse. The
Fourth ward shifted the complimen
tary vote it bad been giving to Knox
and placed it on Kennndy. The vote
at this juncture stood: Carse, 44;
Nelaon, 43; Kennedy, 18. The
Sixth split on the following
ballot, giving 5 votes Jo Carse and
turning the remaining 8 to Kennedy.
This gave the Second ward aspirant
49, the other Six wards voting as be
fore. On the next ballot tbe tiixtb
switched its entire vote to Kennedy.
The Fourth gave 14. the Fifth 12 and
the Seventh 19 to Nelson, and the
three lower wards continued solid
for Carse, who rtctived his usual
one from the Fifth.

The 35th bsl'nt ripp;rit tta htt?
the Sixth ward delegates with the ex-
vopvauu vi uue ienneuy man ana
two Nelson supporters, rallying
arcund the Caree flag. The other
wards did not change their vote.
The Tesult was: Carse 61, Nelson
47 and Kennedy 1. A Fifth ward de!
egate attempted to move that the
romination of Carse be made unani
mous, but the gentleman next to him
held Jiim down.
There was fully a moment's chcer
ine, hats were thown up, handker
chief waived, and it seemed as if a
few of the disciples o! "the corner"
would go into hjsterics. The cha r
man finally declared Mr. Carse the
nominee for mayor. The successful
gentleman was called. He tpoke
hi heartfelt thanks for tbe nomina
tion, and said that he understood
the elements which entered into the
contest as well as anybody. I sha 1
attempt no extended remarks," he
said, -but shall use my endeavor to
make a good mayor, so that when I
retire two years hence you will all
say -well done.'" He then spoke

would follow the event, and which
would make all people feel better.
He closed by hoping to "meet you

voice from the rear.

For sometime the sentiment ot the
nartv has been favorable to the re-
nomiuation of ex-Mayor T. J. Medill
and it has so crystallized itself upon
him In the pesi dT or two that all
other candidates ive practically
withdrawn in his favor, notwith
standing that he hat persistently
dlseOnraced the nse of hi same.
and yesterday afternoon he declared
positively to an A RGC8 representative
that he could not in justice to personal
interests consent to be a candidate.
On the contrary he mast have it na.
derstood positively that he was not
to be further regarded in connection
with the nomination. This final as
surance had the effect of simply in.
creating the earnestness of the de
termiaalion to prevail upon him to
accept, and when the matter was
put on patriotis ground;, and a sense
of doty to the entire city, a well
as his party, he took a different
view of the situation. From further
conversation with Mr. Medill today
it is reasonable to presume that if
tbe nomination is tendered bim he
will not decline. This being the
case there is every indication that
Mr. Medill will again lead his party
iu victory as ne ma iour years ago.
and it may be said, too, that the
baseless reports diligently circulated
by republicans of late that he would
not run against Carse, has not been
without effect in determining his
course. Mr. Medill does not consider
opposition candiJates when runnine
