Willi k attempting to pre-tnt
appearance of innocence, as to
nature of the delegation selected
bv the republican convention of
Rock Island county to the state con
vention at Peoria, the Union never
theless takes oecassion to remind the
gentlemen so selected that they are
expected to le pretty well posted as
to the feelings of Kock Island county
republicans. The morning paix-r
seeks to console its readers with the
assertion that the delegation carries
no label and is neither a Hanecv del
egation" not a "Reeves delegation."'
The fact is also commented upon that
there ha? been considerable; senti
ment of late among republicans
against instructing the state delega
tion in behalf of any particular can
didates, and tbe convention
bowed to this sentiment, thus
giving the delegate the high
est possible expression of confidence. "
The Union does not seem to realize
that thi considerable sentiment of
late" to which Kock Ishyid county
has so rracefullv bowed, alout send
ing uninstructed' delegates, has been
moulded by the Tanner machine. It
is the trick that has been worked all
over the state, and when noses are
counted at Peoria it will be found that
nine out of ten county delegation
which g" with the. "highest possible
expression of conGdence'" will turn
out for Hanecv. Nor will it surprise
anyone else here if the Union wakes
op about that time to find that Kock
Island county is with th crowd.

Either President McKinley has been
