Republicans did more fixing last
nigrht for the accommodation of
those of the faithful who will march
to the primaries to deposit their ballots
next n ednesdav. There were meet
ings in the Second, Third and Fifth
wards. It has been customary at
these gathering to express a prefer
ence from among the aspirants for
the aldermamc nomination, but last
night a snag was struck down in the
Second, where Boney Johnson and
bis friends have imagined bis re no in
ination would be a cinch, and would
be accomplished without jarring the
peace and harmony of the party in
that locality. But it has developed
coney has a rival. Max bnyder, whose
friends declare they will not allow
him to pull out of the race now for
Bonev or anybody else. So there is
likely to be a warm time at the Sec

HORSE AND RIG STOLEN.
Alexander Med ill and John Blakely Are
Thursday night a horse belonging
to Alexander Medill, keeper of lock 37
on Big island, was taken from the
stable without any trace being left to
show where it bad gone. The same
night a buggy, harness and robe be
longing to John Blakely. living three
miles southwest of Milan, disap
peared. The barn from which the
rjg was taken was locked, and the en
trance was made by taking the door
off the track. Tracks leading west on
the main road were followed several
miles the next morning, and the tele
phone' lines were used throughout the
country south, but the rig has not
been found. 1 he same parties un
doubtedly took both horse and rig,
and they must have been familiar
with the premises visited.

HURST NOT A CANDIDATE.
Present Minority Member of the Legisla
tor Would Not Accept Benomtaatioa.
In addition to the many other com
plimentary senses in which his name
as been used in the discussion of
state politics, Hon. E. W. Hurst, mi
nority representative from the Thirty
third district, has been urged b
friends and admirers in both political
parties in Rock Island and Henry
counties to consider himself a candi
date for reelection. While Mr. Hurst
has not at any time been inclined to
consider a second term in the lower
house a third term, more properly,
as his return would mean he has not
until recently regarded the movement
in his behalf "such as would justify a
formal declaration from him. He
has looked upon such suggestions as
merely casual, and has answered them
in the same spirit, by saying that he
had never considered the "proposition
seriously. Now, however, he has
reached the conclusion that in
justice to all concerned a pos
itive statement is poper, and
to an Argus representative who
conversed with him on the subject
this morning, he authorized the an
nouncement that hi is in no sense a
candidate for renomination. He ap
preciates in a high degree the evi
dences of good will and confidence on
the part of his friends, but has reached
the determination to under no circum
stances again be a candidate.
This statement on Mr. Hurst's part
will occasion a great deal of regret
and will doubtless be attended by the
formal annouueement of many good
and worthy democrats in v both Rock
Island and Henry counties for the
succession. The contingent candidacy
of W. R. Moore, of Moline, has already
been mentioned, and it is understood
thit M. J. McEniry, of the same city,
will likewise enter the list, while in
Rock Island ex-Representative William
McEniry and ex-Mayor T. J. Medill
have been spoken of in the eventof the
nomination coming to this county.

Tickets Are Disposed of.
The first annual ball, given by the
firemen at the rink last night, over
shadowed all similar events dating
back to the policemen's ball, and out
did even that in many respects.
The crowd present probably exceeded
700, and over 100 couples were on the
floor at one time. The seating ca
pacity was taxed to its utmost aud a
large number stood up in the east
end of the hall. Many were present
from Moline and Davenport. The
hard maple floor proved to bo one of
the nnest in town, and no other floor
could have come so near accommo
dating the number present.
Bleuer's full baud furnished the
music. No ordinary orchestra could
produce a sufficient volume of sound
to fill the hall.
Danced TU1 Morolor
The mayor and a number of the
council men attended, some of them
with their wives. The dancing did
not cease till 4 o'clock, when the tired
crowd voted the affair an unqualified
success, aud one that deserves liber
al patronage from year to year. Six
hundred and seventy-live tickets were
sold and $ 270 cleared for the depart
