it develops that the gentleman nar

injuries inflicted by a disagreeable
partisan, whom he was endeavoring
to induce to serve on a delegation fav
orable to his nomination in one of th:

Mayoral Boom for the Guardian
FRIENDS CLAIM PARTY DEBT
Has Waited Long for Reward For His
Service Capt. O'Connor
Heard From Also.
From my Longview park kopje -
I am dreaming tonight
Of the four hundred fifty
I've loug had in sight.
Don't care for the money;
I'll call the bill square,
If you see that I light
In the mayoral chair
C. F. Gaetjer.
Another one. who. according to
rumor is about ready to shy his castor
into the mavoral rinsr is Christian
Franciscan Gaetjer. He is not making
any noise himself, but his friends aro
doing so with hi.- consent, and those
who have been confident that the at
mosphere was cleared and that there
would be smooth sailing for Dr. G. G.
Craig, Sr., who has been conceded
since the first of the year to have had
his organization built so stoutly that
it would withstand any ordinary as
sault, are worrying not a little, for it is
recignized that the guardian of liong
view park has a following through the
city that is not to be scoffed at.
Mr. Gaetjer has been for years one
of the most enthusiastic workers In
his party. There has been no task
so unpleasant but what he has been
ready to put his shoulder to it. When
a general was needed to marshal the
oil bearers during the presidential
campaigns he has invariably been the
first to volunteer, and his picturosqu?
gallantry on the occasions when the
marchers were out and the limelight
turned or won many heart encom
iums of praise, even from the enemy.
' KsrnMe to III Party.
He furnished his own horse and his
own hardware. Indeed theTe is none
to deny that he has been a valuable
aid to his party. When there has been
internal strife Christian has been there
with the salve, and when, this was not
efficacious, he would apply the mus
tard, for there is no warmer member
in the ranks than he when he is
primed to the ioint where desperate
measures are required.
Mr. Gaetjer will have a solid dele
gation from loiigview park. He holds
undisputed sway in that section of the
city, but it remains to bo seen how he
will fare, after he goes beyond the
hills and dales of that beauty Vpot.
where he views during the summer
season from his favorite kopje the
commonwealth that he feels would
profit under an administration such
as he would afford. He has made ob
servations from this ioint of vantage
that he would give his fellow citizens
the benefit of, wore they to call him
to occupy the executive chair.
Orrtla Should Count.
Mr. Gaetjer is not a strenuous poli
tician. He believes that one should
be measured by his deeds in ixditics,
but not after the fashion of the foreign
nobleman when he is contemplating
marriage on this side of the ocean. He
has done things for his party, and the
members thereof should know of them.
If they do not Christian may be forced
to publish a pamphlet recounting them.
He has never sought the mayoralty
nomination before, believing that he
should bide his time. However, he
has tried for political honors, and has
been turned down, but has not lost
heart by any means. He wanted to
shine as a member of the staff of Gov.
Yates and the republican executive
preceding him, but he was told that
Ihere was another who had the right
I'll..! From the Third.
And while you are talking of repub
lican candidates you should not over
"ook your old friend. Capt. John
O'Connor, who is sitting in the city
council as alderman from the Third
ward. The captain is still in a recep
tive mood, and will not commit him
self, through his friends down in the
Third say that he has the bee. It is
understood that the Laurel Forty-five
club has adopted resolutions indorsing
him. The captain has- been a resident
of Rock Island for many years. He
knows the city as well as be knows
the river, on which he mastered steam
boats for 30 years, and his friends say
that the people would find him a safe
pilot, one who would guide the ship of
state faely through the shallow places
and keep it free from the snags if
only given a chance.

B. F". Leek, of Concord. Ky., says:
