ENDED DY KOHLERJ
Chairman of the County Commit
tee Stops the Controversy
CLASH BETWEEN CANDIDATES
Searle Wants Primary Throughout the
County Opposed by Allen and
At a meeting of the republican coun
ty committee In the Harper house this
afternoon there was a clash on the
question of primaries throughout the
"ounty, but Chairman Kohler put an
end to it by announcing that it was the
sentiment of the committee that that
body should not go into that matter,
but should leave each division to de
cide for itself whether it would elect
the delegates to the county convention
by primary or caucus. C. J. Searle ad
dressed the committee on the proposi
tion of having the primary throughout
the county, which has been supported
by him since this campaign opened,
and he was" replied to by his opponent,
F. G. Allen, of Moline, who preferred
to allow each township or city to de
cide upon the matter for itself.
Fix tlir IXilfH.
The committee formally authorized
the call for the county convention and
the primaries and caucuses. These
things were fixed by the congressional
committee in its session in Springfield
several days ago, and the county com
mittee instructed to proceed on this
order. It was decided that the con
gressional committee had the power
to nominate, but inasmuch as none of
the candidates desired to receive a
nomination in that manner, the mode
of procedure was laid down by that
committee. The primaries in Rock
Island and the caucuses in Moline and
Sou'h Moline will bo held Aug. 11.
The caucuses in all other parts of the
county will be held Aug. 12. The date
of tiie convention is Aug. 15, and it
will take place in the circuit court
room at 1 o'clock in the afternoon.
Talk in the Kiritt.
('. J. Searle addressed a good sized
audience in the First ward last evening
on the issues preliminary to the coun
ty convention. There was also a meet
ing of his supporters at the Harper
House to formulate plans for the re
mainder of the campaign.

Identified Late Yesterday Afternoon by
Mother Remains Buried in
The body of the young woman found
dead in the Mississippi river near Illi
nois City, with her throat cut, was
identified late yesterday afternoon by
Mrs. Harrison at Davenport, as her
daughter. Miss Alma Harrison. The
identification was made by means of a
piece of handmade brocade on the
front of her waist. While there are
some who hold to the theory of the
young woman having been murdered,
the theory generally accepted is that
she committed suicide. This is sus
tained by the fact that some weeks
ago she attempted to take her own life
by poisoning herself, and that her
whole mind was absorbed with the two
ideas, the dance hall, or death. In a
crowd she was gay and pleasant, but
when at homo she was morose and mel
ancholy, and frequently talked of dy
ing. It is hinted that she had a love
affair, and that she received word that
her lover had been untrue to her. As
stated in The Argus yesterday, she
went to Buffalo Monday, July 17 with
a party, and when the time to return
arrived, could not be found. Those
who advance the murder theory claim
that the unfortunate girl was lured
away from the party and slain, her
body afterwards being thrown into the
water. The investigation is being con
tinued. The remains have been taken to
Davenport, and will be buried in that
