THE ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, ArRIL 5, 1905.
RATIFY ON LEVEE
Two Thousand McCaskrin Fol
lowers Have a Bonfire
ADDRESSED BY THE LEADER
Who Says Election Proves People
Believe in Independent
At 10:45 o'clock last night, when
the returns had been received from
all the wards in the city enough to
show beyond any doubt that McCas
krin was the mayor elect, a band was
fcecured, the victor was serenaded at
his office in the London building on
Second avenue. The band then led a
procession to the levee, where a roar
ing bpnfire had been built. McCaskrin
then addressed the crowd of 2,000 peo
ple which had gathered.
He dwelt mainly on the meaning of
the success of the independent move
ment of yesterday. He said it proved
that the people believed in thoe prin
ciples and proved further that when
the people were determined they could
not be controlled by any clique or com
bination of scheming politicians. He
claimed that the reason that he hai
not taken any hand in the contests
for the other offices was that had he
done so he would have been interfer
ing with the independence of the voter
and doing just what he was protesting
against in the party organization.
VlnIIratlu of l.rRUlatlvc Klchf.
In speaking of the contest for the
seat in the legislature, which is to be
concluded in the house today, McCas
krin said that he regarded the vote
on the mayoralty yesterday as the
strongest evidence that h? had been
lawfully elected to the legislature. He
Raid he intended to go to Springfield,
"and win again today."
He gave the impression that he
might be a candidate for further offices
and honors when he said "I expect this
spirit of independent candidacy to be
carried into broader fields. We can
nccomplishe even greater victories."
Aak.it Aid In r Dutlm.
He was cheered repeatedly, and in
closing said that in thanking his sup
porters ho wanted also to ask their
assistance in carrying out the duties
of the office and their supimrt in move
ments to bring Rock Island to the
