part of the country delegates voted
aye. and the Moline. delegates, wliosi

the chair and duly extended his
thanks to the convention.

wrangle ensued over the matter and
on a vivo voce vote the temper of the
delegates was nol plain, ho a divis

was lost by a comfortable margin.
The original motion was then put and
irried on a division.
As members of this committee the

delegates, were getting slightly upon
their respective ears and when the
chair ruled a motion to do away with
the report of the committee on cre
dentials, accept the delegates as
seated and proceed to business
out of order there was a rum
ble of wrath. There Was a loud. pro
test developed about this time also
against the appointing of a commit
tee on permanent organization, which
had already leen done, and some of
the Moline delegates insisted that the
organization -was already permanent,
having been generally accepted as
such when the second chairman and

: M. M. Sturgeon then moved that an
informal ballot be taken to decide
the position of the delegates as be
tween Judge Gest and Mr. Hood, the
accepted aspirants for the nomina
tion. The roll was called by pre
cincts, Mr. Wood receiving the solid
votes of Moline, South Moline and

the judicial committee from this
county the convention adjourned.
Hot Shot for Grave.
A sensat ional incident preceded the
adoption of the resolutions when
Frank Walker, a delegate from Canoe
Creek, arose in his place in the top
row of seats in the jury box and
moved an amendment that the name
of Emery Graves be stricken out in
the clause indorsing his candidacy,
lie followed the motion up with a
most bitter attack upon the character
of Mr. Graves, continuing till he was
hissed and bawled down by the con
vention. Another from Canoe Creek
arose to state that the sentiments of
the recalcitrant member were not
those of the rest of the delegates
from that en.l of the county. After
the convention Walker and this dele
gate had a heated argument on the
sidewalk near the court house, but
did not come to blows.
With everything so nicely arranged
in advance it was to be supposed! that
E. D. Sweeney would have received
sufficient coaching to enable him to
preside over the convention without
a slip, but such was not the case. Mr.
Sweeney repeatedly- spoke to the del-
gates as though he were addressing
the jury, referred to himself as "the
ourt," and manifested other signs of

TEIES TO DO SEBIOUS DAMAGE
Cuts Peter Van Neste With Razor
and Shoots Out Win
Henry De Wanlee, a Belgian, got
drunk last night and after being
ejected from one saloon he repaired
to the place kept by Peter Van Neste
at Twenty-fourth street and Fifth
avenue, and started trouble. When
the proprietor tried to put him out
he drew a razor and cut Van Neste in
the leg, inflicting slight wounds.
Once outside of the saloon he dug up
a revolver and fired at the front of
the place, smashing some glass, but
luckily hitting no one. The night po
licemen traced De Wanlee toward the
lower end of the city, but were unable
to effect his arrest. .. 4. -. ,:
