The patrol was called out last ev

day. The trip resulted in the arrest
of John Shannon, a well-known local
character, who had absorbed a .little
too much election ambrosia. He was
allowed to go this morning, having
sobered up. Otherwise the depart
ment had a very quiet day, in spite of
the fact that there were more people
at the polls than ever before at a
Bock Island city election.

HURST TALKED OF
FOR SUPREME BENCH
Hock Island Attorney Mentioned for
New Fourth District Supreme
Bock Island may have a candidate
for the supreme bench of the state
from the Fourth district after all.
Friends of Hon. E. W. Hurst yester
day started a little movement in be
half of his candidacy for the demo
cratic nomination. While Mr.
Hurst has not yet given his consent
to the use of his name in that con
nection he appreciates highly the
honor of being so considered and his
friends have expressed the hope of
inducing him to enter the race.
If Mr. Hurst can be prevailed upon
to sta'nd for the democratic nomina
tion, he will be very apt to win it, for
he is well known and well liked
throughout the district, as he is, in
the state at large, anil there is little,
doubt of his success in the election.
Added to his personal popularity,
he is acknowledged to be one of the
ablest and foremost lawyers in this
