there is not much real certainty about them. But there
is a certainty about the signs of low prices which ate to

FIERCE FIGHT ON
Yates and Lowden Managers Are
;.. Both Claiming a Vic
tory. NEED 177 VOTES TO C0BTE0L
Primaries la City in Progress From
1 to 7 O'Clock This Evening '
Coal Valley for GoTernor.
Results in the contest for the in
dorsement for governor in -Rock Isl
and county will be had tonight on the
termination of one of the bitterest
republican factional fights that has
4 ever occurred in the county.
-Moline caucuses have taken place,
as have those in Hampton, South Mo
line and Coal Valley. The city of Rock
Island is holding primaries, opening
this afternoon at 1 and closing at 7,
Vvhile in the remainder of the rural
districts the caucuses are called' for
this evening at 8 o'clock.
Early in the afternoon evidence of
the pitch to which the opposing sides
are wrought was had in the Fourth
ward polling place, at Frick's livery
stable. A difference developed over
the filling of a vacancy among the
judges and it grew so warm that a
riot call was sent in and half a dozen
blue coats responded in short order.
Comparative quiet was soon restored.
Five members of the police force
were already on the ground taking ac
tive part in the caucus. Chief Phil
Miller standing shoulder to shoulder
with John P. Looney, both passing out
Claim of Maoacers.
Control of the count- convention is
claimed by C. J. Searle, manager of
the city campaign for Yates, and 15. D.
Connelly, wh.o is acting in a similar
capacity for Lowden.
Mr. Searle said: "We will carry the
First, Second, Fourth, Fifth and Sev
enth wards, and have a fighting chance
in the Third and Sixth. The five wards
of which we feel reasonably sure in
Kock Island, with the Fifth ward in
Moline. the solid South Moline delega
tion, and the entire country, except
ing a few of the southern townships.
will give us control of the county con
vention, with votes to spare.- It de
pends entirely on the getting out of
the republican vote. If the party
members turn out and do their full
duty there is no doubt in my mind of
our winning the day. We have taken
precautions to prevent the voting of
the bands of floaters we understand
the Lowden managers have in readi
ness to spring in some of the close
wards along about dark. Every man
who can not show his right to vote
will be challenged. We are standing
for clean politics. If it is the will of
the republicans of the city of Rock
Island that Richard Yafe; should not
be renominated I am content to abide
the result, but we do not propose to
have a crowd of paid heelers register
ing the verdict of our party.
Lawden Only Nel Four VFardn.
Mr. Connelly said: "Four wards in
the city will give us the 177 votes
requisite to organize the convention.
We will carry the First, Third, Fourth.
Sixth and Seventh, and it would not j
surprise me if the Lowden ticket won j
in every ward in the city. We are not
worrying about the country districts.
While expecting that some of them
will go for our candidate, really .we
will not need them, as the P9 delegates
in Moline, 10 in South Moline and
those of the four wards, in Hock Isl-!
and of which we are sure will give us
control of the convention. We will
watch every vote that is cast at to
day's primaries and will see to it that
none bnt those entitled to do so. par

' Coal Valley for Yatea. . j
The republicans of Coal .Valley held
their'caucus last evening, electing a
Yates delegation composed of Dr. W.
F. Myers, II. R. Martin. T. J. Murphy,
J. L. Johnson-and C. G. Buck.
In the Seventh ward the contest
has caused an estrangement of old
alliances that have f;ught shoulder)
to shoulder for years, involving the
college, book concern, and other in
terests. In the past few days a
strong'Yates sentiment has developed
and there is to be one of the liveliest
fights f any ward in the city.
The Sout h Moline delegation is claim
ed solid bv the Yates side, but the
Lowden managers declare that 10 o
the 14'will be ftMmT voting with them
in the county convention. Some one
is going to be fooled on the South Mo
line delegation, that's sure.
One of the tricks charged to the
Yates managers is the placing of dele
gate tickets, with a Lowden badge at

during the night. This was resorted
to on the theory that many of the
