Republican County Con
EXPECTED THERE WILL BE E0L1
Lowden Ahead du Face of Returns
Bat Yates Controls the
South Kock Island.,.
It is likely there will be two repub
lican county conventions with con
testing delegations to the state con
vention. On the face i f the returns
Lowden was victor Saturday, but the
Yates managers have the county or
ganization and will take advantage of
the rigdit to pass on all contests.
There may Ije several of these, and as
the county committee, beginning1 with
Chairman 15. F. Knox, is nearly unani
mous for Yates, it is not difficult t.
conjecture how they will be deter
mined. As nearly as can be figured now the
vote in the county stands 1S4 for Low
den and 1(57 for Yates, giving the for
mer a majority of only seven above
the number necessary to control. The
convention meets tomorrow morning
at 11 o'clock at the court house, but
doubtless will be adjourned to the
Lowden claims Moline solid except
ing1 the Fifth ward, which will send
to the convention 17 Yates delegates.
There will be two delegations from
the First ward in Moline. The Yates
supporters will be asked to be seated
on the grounds that the other ticket
was elected by a caucus packed by
democrats an 1 was not the choice of
the republicans of the ward. Should
the Lowden representatives from Ihis
ward be unseated it would insure con
trol of the convention to Yates. There
was talk that Lowden would send con
testing delegations from the Fifth in
Moline ami the Third in Hock- Island.
but- this is denied by the local mana
gers of that candidate's campaign.
Other Town In Itlapute.
South Kock Island and South Moline
are still in.dispute. In the former town
the Lowden managers say they have
nine of the 10 votes, but the opposi
tion declares six of the delegates will
be found sidiiur with Vales. In South
Moline the Lowdcnitcs have all along
saiil they had 10 of the voles, conced
ing but four Yates, but n more
thorough canvass shows lhat the del
egation will be split about even', thus
further reducing Lowden s cinch on
control of the organization.
It is said also there are at least
two delegations in the southern part
of the county in reality belonging in
the uninstructed column, but conced
ed to Lowden, that may flop to the
governor when they learn of the
antics employed in the Fourth and
Fifth wards at the primaries Satur
Precedent est ahlisliec' 'by the na
tional and state committees is point
ed to by the county committee in jus
tification of its purpose to pass on all
contests before the organisation of
the convention tomorrow. I'nder this
plan of action the county committee
would have authority to temporarily
organize the convention, and with the
advantage of Keed's rules to back the
chair. Yates- people should have little
difficulty in starting things, at least.
I'ollre Hack t'p Loonry.
The primaries Saturday passed off
without any broken heads, but there
were numerous close call.-, at least a
dozen rights being prevented in the
Fourth ward by the police depart
ment, which had members on hand
all during the afternoon and evening
to aid Looiiey in whipping voters into
line and bulldozing a!! who might
have preferences on the governorship
that did not agree with their.-. Loon-

Some democrats were
in lth the Fourth an!
wards throtiirh the in
of Looney, while there were
of the party members who
made it a Hint to drop around to the
polls during the day to see for them
selves the part the alleged democratic
leader was playing in the afT.iirs of
the republican party.

Flames Start From Unknown Origin
in Store Room in
G. W. Mitchem. the fireman at the
public library, on returning to his du
ties at 4:T.O this morning, discovered
a small blaze in the central store
room in the basement on the south
side of the building.
The origin of the flames is entirely
a mystery. A small roll of paper
which had been lying in the corner
since last October was the only in
flammable material in the room.
After the blaze it was found that
.everal win lows were broken by the
heat and that the casing and door
leading to the lavatories was burned
away, besides an amount of plaster
which fell from the wall.
Had the building not been fire proof
theblaze might h:ve resulted seriously.

will probably be "the basis for con
tests from the Yates s-ide.
It was past midnight before the re
sult was known in the Third ward, the
Yates ticket winning 10! to 102, after
the judges had thrown out a Lowden
Fourth ward ticket and four unmark
ed ballots! one for Yates and three
for Lowden, which, had been voted
double, the outside ballots being prop

Dr. Williams and Mr. White were
close friends. Dr. Williams, in the
course of his address, said: "It rare
ly occurs that a man becomes so gen
erally and favorably known in a pop
ulous community and gathers about
him so many devoted friends in so
short a time. Men saw in him the
;ualitics of genuine manhood, and
they gave him their confidence and es
teem: they found him pure-minded
and kind and x. m at net i and the;,
rave him their love. The mot ingen
ious, tran-parcnt characters are the
most easily and quickly known. The
man in whom there is, the least re
serve, in whom thj .absence of
all pretense and dk k. ation is soon
estimated at his t rue -wVirth. His acts
and words are the true exponent-; of
Op n. Frank unit Sincere.
"Such was the character of the good
man around whose bier v e are gath
ered today. There was no duplicity in
his nature. Ho was open, frank and
sincere. He -aid what he meant; he
did what his deepei-t convictions of
duty prompted him to '. Those who
knew him Ionge.-t and best, who had
ceased to interpret his character by
his conduct an I had come to know
him. knew that he was incapable of
doing an ignoble thing. They knew
that what he did wax honest and no
ble because behind the deed was :m
honest and noble soul."
