PRIHCE PLAII WIIIS,
Republican Congressional Con
vention Called to Meet
at Calva May 3.
ROCK I8LA2JD COLDLY SHTJBBED.
Result of Today's Committee Meeting.
Which la Anything; Mat Cordial nnd
Calls Fro posed Lot feast Off-The
Efforts Made la Searle'e Behalf Are
The republican congressional com
mittee of the Tenth district had an
animated session at the Harper bouse
this afternoon. The tempest in a
teapot was precipitated by the discus
sion of the time and place of holding
the congressional convention and
likewise the much-talkei-of love feast.
It will be remembered that at the
meeting of the committee a few weeks
since at Galesburg to determine the
time and place when the commit
tee should sit in solemn ses
sion to fix the date and location of
the congressional convention, there
was a sharp issue between the Prince
and Searle factions. The present
congressman's supporters sought an
early convention, while the friends of
the Rock Inland man lined themselves
up for the policv of procrastination.
To them delay was life itself, and
thus pathetically appealing to tbe
others of the committee, they won.
The Love Feast Planned.
Tuesday. April 24, was marked on
tbe calendar as the date when the
committee should next assemble. It
was further agreed that on that occa
sion representative republicans from
throughout the district were to be
invited to meet with the committee
and candidates, drink from the loving
cup, feast, make merry, and incident
ally see what a big boy Searle is in
But times have changed. There
have btcn a few county conven
tions since that other meeting
down the district, and seizing upon
the new aspect of tbe situation thus
developed, the committee members,
recognizing their allegiance to the
royal diadem of the Prince apparent,
decided to up9et the purpose of the
(Jalesburg meeting, and hence the
call for the gathering in Hock Island
Hate Fixed Lot Feat Oft.
After considerable parleying, begin
ning with the assembling of the com
mittee this morning, it was decided
this afternoon that the congressional
convention be held at Galva May 3.
It was the desire of the Searle sup
porters that no date be fixed at this
time not till the county conventions
in Stark and Mercer have been held
and failing in winning over a majority
of the committeemen to their way of
thinking, they consented to a later
date, May 7, the convention to occur
in Kock Island, but they were over
whelmed, and the motion of A. G.
Hammond, of Stark, that the conven
tion be held at Galva May 3 was
adopted, almost unanimously, a mo
tion to lay on the table failing to re
ceive a second. This is unquestion
ably a victory for the Prince men.
The committee reconsidered the ac
tion taken at Galesburg for the Jove
feast at Kock Island the 24th of April,
and officially declared this meeting oft.
The congressional committee is
composed of: Knox county, ' O. L.
Campbell. Knoxville. chairman; Hen
ry, S. V. Deem, Galva. secretary;
Mercer, D. N. Blazer, Aledo; Kock
Island, Walter Johnston, Kock Island;
Stark, A. G. Hammond, Wyoming;
Whiteside, George S. Sard am, Fulton.
All the members were present but Mr.
Others in the city to keep tab on
the meeting of the committee were:
F. A. Freer. G. C. Gale and A. S.
Green. Galesburg; A. W. Errett and
T. P. Pierce, Kewanee, and James Mc
Kinney, of Aledo.

HOLDING CITY'S CONTROL.
Any Plan for the Lotso Warehouse Most
So ProTlde la the Genera. Opinion.
The consensus of public opinion
gathered by The Argcs with refer
ence to the levee warehouse proposi
tion is that the city must accept no
solution that involves the abandon
ment of municipal control. While
many hold to the idea that the quick
est and best way out of the difficulty
is for the city to build and own the
warehouse and thereby be done with it,
the suggestion that has lieen made
that the packet companies be author
ized to put up the building and give
to the city a proportionate iuterest in
it, and the authority to control it and
to dispose of any disagreement that
may arise, is not unpopular.

Story That Rock Island Road's
Roundhouse May Be Re
moved to Moline.
RECENT LAUD PURCHASE THESE.
Persistent Talk That It Is Possessed
by the C. ft. I. & P. Company and Will
be Occupied for Other Than Yard Pur
poses. Although Official Information is
While no direct information can be
obtained from officials of the com
pany, the rumor will not down that
the Rock Island road is the possessor
of the tract of land purchased a few
days ago in Moline for $30,000, a
transaction mentioned in The Argus
at the time, and that, furthermore,
the property is to be occupied for
yard purposes by the company, and
possibly may be the future location
of the roundhouse now situated in
this city, or at least a part of it.
It is known that the company is
cramped for yard accommodations in
Moline, from which point its freight
business is large and growing, and in
Rock Island, too, the road, although
enjoying extensive yard accommoda
tions, could use more.
Casting About for Land.
For several years the company has
been searching about for a suitable
strip of land, and it is believed this
has been secured in Moline. Whether
it will result in the eventual loss to
this city of the roundhouse or other
terminal advantage, remains for time
to tell, although it is hardly pos
sible that the company, so closely
allied with Rock Island, will sever
any of its relations, at least to the ex
tent that reports have represented.
