Nothing to Conceal, the Other a
Put Master of the Art of Political
Trickery Promise Already Blade In
the Event of Success.
Tbe marked contrast in the meth
ods and manners of tbe tw o candi
dates now standing for the mayoralty
of Rock Island is figuring as 6trongly
as an element in lavoroi tbe retention
of the present executive, as are the in
nuences interested in the outcome.
Mavor Medill has always been sought
for the nomination and election. Mr.
McConochie has always sought the
office. Mr. Medill has always com
manded the influences of all classes of
citizens regardless of politics. Mr.
McConochie has appealed exclusively
to political manipulators, and has re
lied entirely upon political trickery
to push him in. Mr. Medill has not
been a dealer in the trades and ante-
election promises in politics. Mr.
McConochie has worked the trade and
double promise act until it found
hitn out and defeated him. and when
he trieii to regain lavor ov the same
means his own party paper denounced
him as a man whose "reputation as a
maker and breaker of promises is
of Listing description." Mr. Medill
is willing to be kuown by his deeds,
ana to stand iy his record as a man
and a public official. Mr. McConochie
is going about buttonholing people
lagging for support and attempt
ing to explain- broken promises, how
be happens to be hooked up with the
'corner" that once fought him be-
cause he failed to keep his pledges
with that center of political manipu
lation, and promising to do anything,
no matter what, so it meets tbe fancy
of the one at that particular moment
lnion Indulges In Falsehood In Attempt
ing' to Belittle Mr. Marshall's Record.
Unable to confront the arguments
in favor of the reelection of City At
torney C. B. Marshall, whose excellent
record as the legal representative of
Rock Island the past two years is ud.
precedented, having fought earnestly
and victoriously in the courts in
behalf of the municipality, and suc
ceeded in enforcing the 8-hour law in
connection with city contracts, the
Id ion of today resorts to prevarica
Hon and misrepresentation in its
vain attempt to counteract thealmos
unanimous support that has been vol
untarily pledged to Mr. Marshall
The most glaring of its falsehoods
in reference to the .thirtieth street
improvement, claiming that Mr.
Mar Khali was defeated in the main
legal points in that improvement
Such a statement is ridiculous to
those who know tbe tacts, which are
these: The improvement of Thirtieth
street was ordered made by special
taxation acc rding to frontage- Os-
born & Curtis were large holders on
the street, but on account of the con
dition of the land which was depreci
ated in value, City Attorney Marshall
and Mayor Medill agreed to a reduc
tion of their assessment. These gen
tlcruen however, would not accept
the proffered compromise, and on the
contention that the onlinauce was in
validated by the o-hour clause, pro
ceeded to tight the ordinance in the
county court. There the assessment
was contirmeu, Osuorn Curtis por
tion being reducea, but not in excess
of the amount Messrs Marshall and
Medill originally offered to reduce
it. The other 30 property holders.
who assisted in opposing the eonlir
mation of the ordinance, did not re
ceive any reduction whatever.

Mr. Medill has never been a party
to ante-elect ion slates and com Lima
tions, and is not now. Mr. McCon
ochie never run for oflice that he did
not have a half doen offices promised
three doen men, and now the
eviience is too apparent to Iks
disguised that, while moving much
more cautiously than heretofore, the
pledge-making is going on just as of
yore. Uut it is proceeding with this
part of the program through the me
dium of the "corner."
Phil and Steve Provided For.
Asa matter of course. Wily Wil
liam has insisted that his old and
trustworthy friend and fellow sufferer.
Phil Miller, be provided for in his old
berth if the time comes to deliver
the goods but the rent is left to the
wise and far seeing "corner." This
being the case, it is not to be doubted
that Steve O'Connor is to Ikj slated for
superintendent of streets, in return
for tli3 delivery of the teamsters
vote provided he can deliver the vote
in accordance with his boast. . There
is somethiug of an impression that
the health commissioners hip has also
been used as a means of natchinir ur
iruce, nut this is not authentic
I he "corner" refuses to le interviewed
on that point. But Miller and O'Con
ner are tixed for the present.
FACTS AS TO TWENTIETH.
Cannot be Reverned by Prevarication and
Misrepresentation by the I'nlon.
n lanes iwo-iairas 01 a column in
this morning s Lmon to attempt to
explain away and to successfully mis
represent the facts appearing in last
night's Akocs as to the improvement
of iwcntieth street. The situation
there is just exactly as The Ai:;rs
stated it. The lower section was put
in under McConochie, and the people
have found since how inadequately
the city was protected in the matter
of proper indemnification for the
faithful icrformance of the contract
under which the work was done. The
upier section was contracted for un
der McConochie. but held up until
Medill came in the first time, when he
foiced the improvement through, by
giving Cthc interested land owners
their choice between Twentieth and
Seventeenth to tbe city limits. Then
the objection were promptly with
drawn, and the tirst paved avenue of
approach to the city from the south
limits was put through.
And a comparison of the character
of the paving on the two sections of
Twentieth and of the records of the
city as to when and how tbe jobs were
done w ill afford practical proof as to
the respective merits of the two un
dertakings, and the indisputable facts
in miier case.

Why tiof Recognize 111m, Too?
Despite the fact that the Union has
given due credit to the "corner s
under 1kss, Steve O'Connor, for the
part he promises to play in the pend
ing campaign, in lining up and deliv
ering inc teamsters to tne support or
the "corner" cured ticket, it hasfaiiel
so far to give proper recognition to
the other boasted deliverer of the
labor vote, the Li Hung Chang of the
campaign, who is endeavoring des
perately but vainly to fulfill his
pledge to bring around tbe labor
unions, one at a time, to the support
of the McConochie ticket. These, we
believe, are the first instances in the
history of local politics where so Ixjld
a move has been undertaken, and it-is
doubtless because of the ticklishness
of them that thev are proceeding with
so much quietness. It is doubtful if
labor has ever been subjected to
greater indignity than it has by
the politician, who has the au
dacity to imagine that he can convert
tbe vote ol intelligent union men, who
forget more in the morning before
breakfast than be learns all day, to
his own uses.

appropriate public reception for tho
Rock Island, Moline and Davenport
members of the 8th Illinois volun
teers on their return were taken at a
conference of colored citizens held
last night at Hillicr's hall, on Market
square. Henry Hurris, of Kock Island,
was chairman of the meeting, and J.
M. Busse. of Moline, was secretary.
Various ideas as to a proper dem
onstration in honor of the boys who
were willing to sacrifice their lives in
another clime, that an oppressed peo
ple might be liberated and that the
dignity of Uncle Sam's flag might be
upheld, were discussed. Suggestions
that met with unanimous approval
were offered by Ilevs. C. II. 1 nomas,
of Kock Island, and L. J. Phillips, of
Meline. These were to the effect that
the soldiers be met at the train with
bands of music and escorted through
the streets of Kock Island, merchants
to be asked to decorate, and the parade
to be followed by a gathering at a ball,
where a program of speaking by
prominent citizens of the three towns
and instrumental and vocal music
shall be carried out. Later, on it was
thought proper, a banquet should be
tendered the boys.
It was decided to appoint an ar
rangement committee of 27 members,
nine from each city, of which Henry
Burris shall be chairman. The com.
mittee is to have general charge of
the reception and will solicit the
money necessary to defray the ex

pastor of the Second Baptist church,
is the head of the band of colored
men that weut to the front with the

ant of one of the companies.
The boys have acquitted themselves
nobly at the front, and it is proposed
by the people hereabout to show to
them that their acts of patriotism
and valor are appreciated.

cities will also be invited to partici
