Rock Island last evening probably
for the first time in its history, witness
ed the city-township conventions of the
democratic and republican parties held
at the same time. The democrats met
at the Rock Island house hall and the
republicans at Turner hall. Both were
mere formalities to obviate any possi
bility of failing to comply with all the
terms of the law. The particular point
that led to the conventions being held,
as previously explained in The Argus
was the failure of the new law to spe
cify the manner in which the nomina
tions made under the primary law are
to be certified to the city clerk to in
sure their being properly placed on
the ballots. The old law, which has
not been repealed, provides for the
nominations being certified to by the
chairman and secretary of the city
township convention and therefore it
was thought best to confirm the action
of the primaries at a delegate' c'dnvcn
tion, and this was done by both par
ties. lrHeMlliiKN of DrniorrnlH.
The democrats were called to order
by Chairman George Wright, who stat
ed the purpose of the convention. On
motion Mr. Wright was unanimously
named as permanent chairman of the
convention and Aid. J. P. Sexton, chair
man of the city-township committee,
was in like manner continued as per
manent secretary of the convention.
Then the business of the meeting
was taken up. Mr. Sexton read the
official returns of the primaries pre
pared oy tny cierK scnairer, begin
ning with M. W. Uattles. nominee for
supervisor, giving the primary vote in
the various precincts and the total
vote in the city, and on motion Mr.
Rattles was declared the nominee of
the party for that office. In like man
ner the other township nominees, those
for aldermen and the ward committee
men, were taken up in order and unani
On Srtralli Ward Alilrriusa.
When it came to the Seventh ward
aldermanic nomination the advisability
and method of placing a candidate
there in opposition to the republican
nominee was pretty thoroughly dis
cussed and it was found to be the wish
of the delegates that the party ticket
be filled if possible or that if this Is
not legal, a citizens' candidate be plac
ed on the ticket by petition, the law
being understood as allowing till to
morrow night to do this. In view of
the shortness of time and the impossi
bility of getting the entire cly com
mittee together to act, the entire mat
ter was left in the hands of .Chairman
Wright and Secretary Sexton to ascertain
what course is open and to place a
candidate in the field if possible.
Following are the committeemen ap
proved by the convention:
First Ward Robert C. Beck, Charles
Weinberger, Henry Kale, George Free

Ceneral Plnn mm Dfmom(.
The delegates; to the republican city
cottYentiun. last evening went through
the formalities of nominating the tick
et at the Turner hall. The contrast
of the convention of last evening with
the republican city-township conven
tion under the old law was marked.
The meeting was called to order by
Chairman J. F. Witter of the city cen
tral committee, G. C. Wenger acting as
secretary. B. D. Connelly was unani
mously elected chairman of the meet
ing, and C. I-. Ackerlind secretary.
A committee on credentials, com
posed of Martin Rundgren. W. T. Chan
non, Sam Ryerson. Leo Vermere, J. X.
Huntoon, P. H. Keliy, and Andrew
Greaser, was appointed, and reported
the delegates selected at the primary.
On motion of R. W. Olmsted the nom
inees' names were read by the chair
man, and declared the choice of the
convention. There were no candidates
for the office of constable, and it was
suggested that the convention make
nominations for these two vacancies.
James E. Larkin, C. F. Gaetjer, and
Phil Miller, were suggested, but each
declined, and the convention adjourned
without selecting candidates for the
office. The convention was one of the
quietest held by the republicans in
years in Rock Island,, the fight usually
waged, having been carried on this
year at the primaries.
The republican committeemen ap
proved by the convention follow:
First Ward Louis Rahn, John
Second Ward Jo3a Swanson, Tho
Third Ward W. D. Gall, Ben Rinck,

TO TRY WM. NAGEL
Judge Gest Overrules Motion of
the Attorney for De
fendant. PLEADS TO CHARGE MONDAY
Held Under Indictment for Murder of
Carl Brady Will Go to Supreme
Court Trial First.
Judge Gest this afternoon overruled
the motion of Attorneys II. A. Weld
and Adair Pleasants for the discharge
of William Nagel, charged with the
murder of Carl Brady, and the defend
ant will be required to enter his plea
The motion for a discharge was made
upon the statute requiring that the
court shall dismiss a defendant if he is
held in custody and not tried within
four months after his commitment. A
similar motion was made on a previous
indictment and the January grand jury
returned another true bill on the same
charge, murder. Thcv attorneys for
the defendant then set up the jlea of
jurisdiction, maintaining that he could
not be reindicted after his discharge.
"I have not been able to agree with
the attorneys for the defendant on
these claims," said Judge Gest. "I do
not think that is the law." He discuss
ed to some extent the decisions of oth
er states, there having been none on
this point in Illinois. Upon reviewing
the enactment of Illinois, he said, '"I
can not bring myself to a conclusion
that a discharge under such an act is
a discharge from the offense. It seems
to me that if that had been the inten
tion of tne Iramers of the law it would
have been so stated, as it is in the Vir
ginia law. 'forever discharged." that is
Tke attorneys for the defendant
sought to get the state's attorney to
agree to nolle pros the indictment on
the charge of accessory after the fact
in order that the case might be taken
to the supreme court for an adjudica
tion of this point without a trial, under
the habeas corpus act. Mr. Scott has
indicated that he will not do this; that
the defendant will have to stand trial,
and if the attorneys desire to appeal
from this ruling of the court without
taking up the record of the trial they
can do that.
Mrs. Anna Russell.
Mrs. Anna Russell, widow of the late
J. W. Russell, died last evening at her
home, SOS Twenty-first street, at the
age of 74 years. The funeral services
will take place Saturday morning at
9 o'clock at St. Joseph's church, eon
ducted, by Dean J. J. Quinn. Interment
takes place in Calvary cemetery.
Mrs. Russell was a native of County
Clare, Ireland, and had resided in this
country for 52 years. Her long resi
dence in Rock Island gave her a wide
acquaintance and causes her to leave a
large circle of sorrowing friends. She
leaves five daughters, Mrs. M. H. Sex
ton. Mrs. F. W. Calkins. Misses Susan
and Annie Russell of Rock Island, Mrs.
M. O. Brinkerhoff, of Chicago; one
