Those interested Jn the Thirty-third
district senatorial contest are just now
speculating on the next tack to be
taken by J. H. Andrew?, Henry coun
ty's energetic and persistent aspirant
as by next Saturday he must decide
in which role he desires to appear on
the ballot democratic or independent
candidate having, as is known, filed
certificates as the nominee of both
There seems little question that his
appointment as democratic candidate
is irregular and will be so established
if forced for a judicial opinion, from
the fact, as heretofore stated, he was
chosen by the minority of a commit
tee that has no standing before the
law, because the proceedings of the
convention that composed it have been
declared invalid by the judges of the
May Ran Independent.
This being the case, it is probable
Mr. Andrewu will elect to so before
the people as an independent candi
date, leaving M. J. McEniry. whose
nomination papers are on tile a

J. 11. Andrews was in the city last

NO MORE STREET FAIRS
SAYS PREACHER McVETY.
Here is what Rev. T. W. McVety
pastor of the First Methodist church
of that city, has to say regarding last
week's street fair at Galesburg:
"The girls who came to the front of
these tents were unquestionably the
very scum of the lowest life. I am
told that the management received
800 from these shows, but. that was
a sorry pittance when compared with
the intluence that such shows must
have upon the morals of the commun
lty. Ine oldest citizen never saw as
tough women in Ga'esburg. The city
is fortunate in passing through the
fair without any damage suits being
brought against the city. I think
this will be our last street fair. In
deed an intimation of another such
fair would provoke a remonstrance on
the part of the business men and the

J. A. WHITE'S HEROIC
FIGHT AGAINST DEATH.
John A. White, well known here as
the partner of H. A. Stone in the di
rectory business, is reported dying in
a hospital at Peoria in consequence of
injuries received during a political
demonstration in that city.
Told that he must surely die, and to
prepare for the final end, he manifests
a wonderful tenacity to lire, ana ae-
clared at last accounts that he would
not die. The attending physicians
had abandoned all hope, and the
members of the family were gathered
about him, awaiting the end. The
doctors stated that he might live an
hour, he might live a day, but he was
rapidly approaching dissolution, and
there was nothing they could do for
Mr. White was himself informed of
his true condition, but he said he
would not die; he would recover.
Fred Thomas, otherwise known as
Frank Haroun, and a lesser light in
contemporaneous fields registering as
C. P. Funk, bear the distinction
of having been the first appre
hended crooks to be accorded trans
portation in the new patrol wagon.
It was a breezy last night ride from
the state across the river in which
Haroun lost his hat, and being quite
bare beneath his sky piece, would
probably have taken cold had it not
been for several heaters he had inside
The pair were jugged for the theft
of an overcoat belonging to Eugene
Leherington, who had laid it for a
few minutes on a radiator at Given'a
saloou. Leherington is a contractor
employed on the Peoria' road and an
old friend of Jim Given. The two
had not met for years and it was the
surprise of the meeting that led the
former to leave his coat in an exposed
place near the outer door. The thieves
were at once traced toward Davenport,
followed by the patrol wagon, and
caught in possession of the coat.
In the preliminary hearing this
morning before Magistrate Stafford,
the case was continued till Saturday.
Haroun is well known to the police,
having appeared as defendant in sev
eral cases here and elsewhere. He
served a terra in the Iowa peni
tentiary, being sent up from Clinton,
and a couple of years ago narrowly
escaped conviction here for robbery
in connection with a woman. Since
that time he has turned his attention
to music, composing several songs.
C. Van Lake was brought before
Justice Cramer this morning charged
with abandoning his family. The case
was continued till tomorrow after
John Peaglase was given a hearing

Good Ftahtne In Illinois.
The Peoria Star says that black b'.-is
fishing at the lower free bridge was
never so good as now in the history of
the Illinois river. Everybody who
goes forth with rod and line gets a nice
string. This comes of seining the
river regularly, and thus
of the turtles, gars and dogfish, and
all the big monsters that gobble the
little lish. Rock and Green rivers are
not seined, and you couldn't catch a
string of black bass in either stream in
