at Cambridge. M. J. McEniry, of
Moline, and J. H. Andrews, of Kewa
nee, both of whom claim to have been
duly nominated, filed notice of contest
with Secretary of State JamejA. Rose,
who, in accordance with thfi statutes,
referred the matter for settlement to
the judges of the counties comprising
the senatorial district. The secretary
of state fixed the date and selected
Rock Island as the place of the hearing
of the contest.

delegation. It will be recalled that
the Henry county delegates immedi
ately on the calling of the convention,
although iu the minority, sought to
run affairs with a high hand, even at
tempting to deny Rock Inland, which
had the majority delegation, a voice

apparent that Henry county's plan
was simply to prolong the convention
beyond the limitation in which the
tiling of nomination papers is required
and thereby give a clear field for .J.
H. Andrews as au independent nomi
nee, Rock Island's delegates perfected
the organization and in regular form
nominated M. J. McEniry for repre
sentative. Henry county, seeing, it
had been beaten at its "own game,
then hurriedly called its delegates to
gether and named J. H. Andrews as

K. Blish, of Kewanee, Henry county,

Tenth congressional district, has sent

Blish, who is a banker and lawyer of
Kewanee, gives no reason for his ac
tion except to slate that he declines to
stand longer for the office."
