HE IS FOR FAIRNESS1 f
Secretary C P. Stauduhar Favors
OPPOSED TO BRACE METHODS
Mtatcnient of a Man Who is
I.nntjrr for tjoonej -I
George P. Stauduhar, secretary of
the democratic county committee,
who has been out of town since the
recent meeting of the democratic
county committee, returned home
Saturday night. Mr. Stauduhar at
once gave his approval of the move
of the democrats oi Bock Island for
fair primaries, and appended his sig
nature to the call issued by Chairman
Sexton for such meetings, "i do not
think the ci Unty c mn;it1eemen re
alized thai such advantage could be
tak'ii of the nature of the rati that
issued from the late meeting." Raid
Mr. Stauduhar. "Or they would never
have cooatenaneed it in the least, l
have not yet signed the call on this
account, and the exhibition .f brace
caucuses in Bock Island baa str;ngth
ene I me in my original position. I do
not think it is the duty of the execu
tive officers of tin- counts committee to
give their sanction by appending their
signature to what they believe p r
mits of unfair methods in politic, am!
for thi reason I agree with Chair
man Sexton fully in the stand he has
taken. On this account I have cheer
fully appen led my name as secretary
of the county committee to the call
that Mr. Sexton has i ued for pri
maries, iii response to the petitions
representative of the sentiments of so
many of the democrats of Hock Isl
and. I am 8 gainst this thing of fraud
ulent caucuses. wire the majority is
denied the right of expression. As to
the caucuses so far held, I think they
ought to lie repudiated, every one of
them. In the Fifth wan! I c es'.iler
that no caucus has been held. If was
Called without even so much as con
sulting me. and if m name was at
tach) d to the call for it. it was abso
lutely without toy knowledge or eon
sent, and I am a member of the coun
ty committee from that ward. And I
understand, too. thai my associate
committeeman. Mr. Ftnnegan, nl
thoogfa signing the call, de
clined to have anvthlng to do
with the caucus. Under these cir
eumstnnces, where is the regularity
of such a proceeding? No more of thht
business for me; no more of guerilla
warfare in local politics.'
tu.t Atl He to ..i.i Fairly.
PolitJeallj, at least. Mr. Stauduhar
has been one 01 Loooey's most loyal
supftoi ters. It may be said that Mr.
Stauduhar remained by his side' al
most to the last when his Intolerable
methods had driven others away from
him. In the last city-tow n-hip fight
it wjis upon Mr. Staodubur'a shoul
ders that Looney threw the entire
burden of carrying out his every
inoxc. lie made him secretary of the
little convention, so-called, that was
left in Turner hall alter those com
posing the regular convention that he
had attempted to carry by storm had
left the hall in order to discharge
their proceedings in an orderly man
ner, lie made Stauduhar one of hia
candidates on the township ticket ami
then brought all the court proceed
ings, in which he was beaten at every
turn, in Mr. Stauduhar's name. It was
considerable of a load for one man to
stand up under even to the extent of
going to tidiest o alone with him to
witness ihe final chapter in the train
of incident a that showed that the
Looney political methods had no more
landing in court than they had in
the democratic party, and among th
do.en or more democrats who were in
Oeneaeo at the time, the opinii u gen
craliv concurred in was that if ever a
man went to the limit of honorable
procedure lor another. Stauduhar did
it for !.o ney that day.

DROWNING MAN is pulled
TO SHORE ON FISH LINE
Harry Servis, after disappearing the
third time in the liver near the Dav
enport side yesterday, grabbed hold
of a fish line, and was pulled to -hole
ami his life saved, but only when he
had been subjected to the most heroic
rolling operation, by which his stoaa
ecfa was relieved of its cargo of water.
Servis was seated on a sand barge
at the foot of Harrison street angling.
Losing his balance he tumbled into
the water. lie could not swim and
shuted for help. A friend jumped in
after him. but the latter found on
reaching the water that the best he
ebuld do was to hold his own head
above the surface, and he made for
shore as fast as he could.
Servis floated down stream about
ff.rtj feet. When he went down the
third time he struck the tish line with
his band, lie took a death hold. The
fisherman aupponed he had a whale.
The spectators on shore thought Ser
vis had perished, but w hen his body
came to the surface all took a hold
on the fish line and aided in pulling
him to shore BS fast as possible. He
was rasping when he reached land,
but fortunately there were men pres
ent who knew how to treat a drown
ing person, and in the course of half
an hour Servis was brought back to
t he land of the liv ing.
