EXPECTED THERE WILL BE BOLT
Lowden Ahead oi Face of Returns
Bat Yates Controls the
South Rock Island.
It is likely there will be two repub
lican county conventions with con
testing delegations to the state con
vention. On the face of the returns
Lowden was ictor Saturday, but the
Yates managers have the county or
ganization and will take advantage of
the rig-lit to pass on all contests.
There may lie several of these, and as
the county committee, beginning with
Chairman 15. P. Knox, is nearly unani
mous for Yates, it is not difficult to
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 107 for Yates, givinjy 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
ing 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
m the grounds that the other ticket
was elected by a caucus packed b''
democrats an 1 was not tlm choice of
the republicans of the ward. Should
the Lowden representatives from this
ward be unseated it would insure con
trol of the convention to Yates. 1 here
was talk that Lowden would send con-
t est iiiif delegations from the Fifth in
Moline and the Third in Rock Islam1.!
but this is denied bv the local matfa-
jjers of that candidate's campaign.
Other Towns In Olnpnte.
N South Rock Island and South Moline
ire 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 Yates. In South
Moline the Lowdenites hae all aloii'j
said they had lu of the otes, conced
ing hut four o Yates, but a more
thorough canvass shows that the del
egation will be split about ever, 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 uninstrticted column, but conced
ed to Lowden, that may Hop to the
governor when they learn of the
antics employed in the Fourth and
Fifth wards at the primaries Satur
Precedent established bv the na
tional and s-tate committees is point
ed to by the county committee i.i jus
tification of its purpose to pass on all
contests before the organization oi
the convention tomorrow.. I'nder this
plan of action the county committee
would have authority to temporarily
oranize the convention, and with the
adtantage of Reed's rules to hack the
chair. Yates people should have little
difficulty in starting things, at least.
Police Hack t'p Ixyonry.
The primaries Saturday parsed off
without any broken heads, but there
were numerous close calls, at least a
dozen tights being prevented in the
Fourth ward by the police depart
ment, which had members n hand
all during the afternoon ami evening
to aid Looney in whipping voters into
line and bulldozing' all who miirht
have preferences on the goxernorship
that did not agree with their? . Loon
ey, mot of the afternoon, stood be
tween two olicf men, the bitter sup
posedly hainjr instructions to sustain
him in any move l;e might make to
prevent "unfriendly Indians" from
vi-tinir. Some democrats were
voted in lwth the Fourth an!
Fifth wards through the in
tluence of Looney, while there were
others of the party members who
made it a int to drop around to the
polls luring' the day to see for them
selves the part the alleged democratic
leader was playing- in the affair. f
the republican party.
- Illlut Itoini Staffed.
When the votes were counted in the
Fourth it was found there were ."s
in excess of the number of j
names recorded in the tally lx k. Itj
was charged that the balh.t b.x had J
Im-c?i stuffed ImiIIi here an 1 in the:
Fifth ward, where Looney was in sii-j
preme comman j in iiehalf of the
Lowden tickets. In the Firth there
was on'y a dozen Itallnts aboe the
Ifi'lr Imt in n.it)or wnri? -v r tlrf
sufficient to change the result. How-
ever, this irregularity, together .with!
G. AY. Mitchem. the fireman at the
public library, on returning to hi.s du
ties at 4:."0 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 windows were broken by the
heat and that the casing ami door
leading to the lavatories was burned
away, besides an amount of plaster
whic h fell from the wall.
Had the building not been tire proof
the blaze might hp ve resulted seriously.
The damage d-r.e will amount to $00.
the prominence of Looney democrats,
will probably be 111" "oasis for con
tests from the Yates M,le.
It was p;;st mi.fnirlit before the re
sult was known in the Third ward, the
Yates ticket w inning- 30 J to 1'.'.2. 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 hul!ots being prop
erly marked and therefore counted.

FUNERAL SERVICES AT KOMI
Tribute to Character of Deceased bj
Ilia Pastor Death of H.
The remains of .1. W. White, late
general attorney for the Modern
Woodmen society, were taken to Rock
Falls, 111., today for interment beside
those of hi.s wife, a number of friends
accompanying the members of the
family, who were conveyed in a spe

were II. P.. Hubbard. Charles Schnei
der. J. E. Elliott. A. D. Welch. H. H.
Cleaveland and A. E. Lamp. The
board of directors of the Woodmen
society accompanied the body to Rock
Funeral services were conducted at
the residence on Twentieth street at
11 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Rev.
II. R. Williams, pastor of. the First
Methodist church, assisted by a quar
tet consisting of E. L. PhiPirook. J.
A. Joli'.i-on. Miss Rella Carpenter and
Mrs. Jennie Walker, the latter render
ing the hymns. "Nearer, My God. to
Thee." "Lead, Kindly Light" and
"Rock of Ages." The house was tilled
with sorrowing frler.ds. and there was
a wealth of Moral tributes.
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
qualities of genuine manhood, and
they gave him their confidence and es
teem: they found him pure-minded
and kind and sympathetic, and they
trave him their love. The most ingen
ious, transparent characters are the
most easily and quickly known. The
man in whom there is the least re
serve, in whom there is an absence of
all pretense and dissimulation is soon
estimated at his true worth. His acts
and words are the true exponents of
Op ll. Frank ami Slncer.
"Such was the character of the good
man around whose bier we are gath
ered today. There was no duplicity in
his nature. IN' was open, frank and!
sincere. He said what he meant; he
did what his deepest convictions of"
d;:ty prompted him 1o do. Those who
knew him longest ami be.-t. who had
ceased to interpret his character by
his conduct n 1 had come to know
him. knew that he was incapable of
doing an ignoble thing. They knew
that what he did was honest and no
ble because behind the deed was na
honest and noble soul."
