The democrat ie caucuses in IJock
Island Saturday evening for the
choice of delegates to Wednesday's
county convention centered on the
minority representative race, the
candidates being T. A. 1'enrler, .1. I.

delegate tickets supported by" Mr.

It was the first time the democrats
of the city have taken advantage of
the provisions of the primary elec
tion law. The polls were open
from C till '. in the evening
giving all who desired an opportunity
to express their preference in the
matter of delegates. Kverywhere
the polls were conducted in a quiet
and orderly manner. The pri
maries were characterized by a
marked lack of interest among demo
crats in general, with the exception
of in the Fifth ward, where both Mr.
Looney and T. A. Pender, out for the
same office, reside. There a large
vote was polled.
While general results indicate that
Mr. Looncv obtained a majority oT
the delegates in this city, it will be
seen from a comparison of the lists
in the several wards, that some of
the men choosen to represent their
vvardsjn the county convention were
on other tickets than the one upon
which they were elected. Therefore,
whether or not all the delegations
will vote solid is said by representa
tives of the different wards to be a

In the Second there was consider

PRETTY POOR EXCUSE
IN STREET CAR LINE
Those Sabbath breaking, soul de
stroying, nerve irritating cars of the
Tri-City Kailway company that are
too dilapidated to run anywhere
else were again heard from in Hock
Island yesterday. The equipment de
partment evidently imagines that by
shoviitg them over here so far away
from the base of operations lhat
they cannot be heard at Davenport
it can forget that they exist. 'I lit'
company would be indicted if such
neglected rattletraps were run in
Davenport. It is unfortunate that a
corporation that in other respect?
so merits popularity should iermit
such discrimination in the distribu
tion tif its rolling stock.
