HUBST FOR GOVERNOR
Chicago Democrats Pay Rock
Islander a High Com
pliment. TO HEAD THE STATE TICKET.
Ad Honor. However, That Is Not Sought,
and In View of the Candldarr of Mr.
I -add Won'd Not Ke Accepted I'nder
Any Circumstances Action Appreciated
Democratic papers in Chicago have
been paying some neat compliments
to Representative E. W. Hurst, of this
city, in the discussion of suitable
candidates for the head of the demo
cratic state ticket. The Eagle, for in
stance, says: "In casting about for
the strongest man to nominate for
governor, the Illinois democracy have
about come to the conclusion that
Hon. Elmore W. Hurst, of Rock Isl
and, is the coming man. Many be
lieve that Mr. Hurst -in lead the par
ty to victory. He is well known
HON K. W. HIK-T.
throughout the state and made a
most creditable record in the Illinois
legislature. The presidential battle
must be fcught in the middle west
this year, and as Illinois is considered
a pivotal state. Mr. Hurst's nomina
tion me:ins much in this presidential
year, us he has a strong and enthusi
astic following, not alone in Illinois,
but throughout the entire west, ami
also commands the conlidenee and re
spect of the democratic party, in
which he has been a life-long worker.
Mr. Hurst'rt supporters say he is
voung and progressive and a level
headed man of affairs. He has
amassed a fortune in private business
ami is a man of high standing. West
ern democrats aver that a better se
lection for governor of Illinois than
Elmore W. Hurst could not he made."
And Here l Another.
And here is what Standard Opinion
savs mi the same subject: "The latest
additions to the list of available dem
ocratic candidates for governor are
Judge Murray F. Tuley. of Chicago;
Hon. Elmore W. Hurst, of Rock Isl
and; Hon. Samuel Alschuler, of Auro
ra, and Hon. Reed Green, of Cairo.
They are lifelong democrats and have
had legislative experience, which has
fitted them in an eminent degree for
the position of chief executive of the
great state of Illinois. Mr. Hurst is
regarded as one 01 the ablest of the
many able members of the general as
sembly, and has many friends through
out the Mate who are urging his
claims. One of these a former state
committeeman from the central part
of the state writes to Standard Opin
ion as follows: -While yon are easting
about for good gubernatorial timber,
do not overlook one of the brightest.
most popular and cleanest legislators
we have in Illinois, Elmore W. Hurst,
of Rock Island, a man of abilitv, aline
speaker, and of strong political back
ing and wealth. With such a man at
the helm, southern Illinois will roll
up a democratic majority greater than
in 1X92.' "
Bat He la Not a Candidate. yr
When spoken to on the subject of
his candidacy as snggested by the
Chicago papers. Mr. Hurst said today
that while lie greatly appreciated the
consideration of his name in connec
tion w ith the discussion of those avail
able for such high distinction, that
he was in no sense a candidate for the
gubernatorial nomination. With so
eminently worthy a candidate already
in the field from this section of the
state as Hon. C. K. Ladd. of Kewanee,
there was no occasion for any more
candidates from this part of Illinois.
Mr. Hurst reiterated the sense of
honor he felt, however, in being men
tioned by his friends in Chicago and
elsewhere in this connection.
Harry Moore (colored), driver of
one of the city dump carts, had an
accident today on Seventh avenue,
which, although painless to him. will
be a little costly to him in replacing
a wooden limb. Harry was in
Schmidt's drug store, when the horse
started on the run. In atttempting
to stop the animal Harry fell, the
wagon running over the artificial
member and breaking it.

you to grant the pending ordinance

Dr. Samuel W. Lincoln, of Moline,
lies at the point of death at St. An
thony's hospital, as the result of In
juries sustained in a runaway in this
city last night. He has been uncsn
sclous since he was hurt, and the
physicians who are attending him
say the chances for his recovery are
The runaway occurred about 7
o'clock, shortly "after Dr. Lincoln had
driven his team out of C. W. Negus'
livery stable on Third avenue. The
horses are young and spirited, and
the fact that they bad been housed up
during the greater part of the after
noon, whetted their apjetites for exer
cise. The doctor held the reins loose
ly, and as the horses crossed the ave
nue at Seventeenth street they struck
out on a gallop, dashing east at a
break-neck speed. A citizen who
saw the mad and reckless dash
across Eighteenth street, said a lady
and gentleman walking together had
a narrow escape from being run down,
while a little farther east the team
crashed into another rig, damag
ing it somewhat. Dr. Lincoln
seemed helpless in his efforts
to subdue the now frothing and
frightened animals, and the racket
cauted by their sweep over the street
car tracks at Twentieth could be
heard for blocks. Continuing the mad
dening dash the hordes about eighty
feet eastward ran into tlie curbing on
the south side of the thoroughfare,
throwing the driver violently asrainst
the curb. The buggy was demol
ished. One horse jumped over a
fence into a yard. The other ran into
the alley back of Hartz & Ullemeyer's
Dr. Lincoln lay unconscious, blood
oozing from his mouth and eais. The
ambulance was summoned and he
was conveyed to St. Anthony's hos
pital, where he was attended by Drs.
J. P. Comegys G. (i. Craig, Sr., ami
.1. R. Hollowbush. Dr. Lincoln's skull
was bruised, causing contusion of the
brain, while the left arm was fractured
at the shoulder, and there were other
cuts and contusions about the body.
A consultation was held on Dr.
Lincoln's case at noon by Drs. J. P.
Comegys, J. R. Hollow bufch, G. L.
