IN FIERCE FIGHT
Republican Factions in the Fifth
Ward Engaged in Con
troversy. ALL OVER CULL0M CONTROL
Secret Caucuses and Hourly Meetings
of Cliques the Program of
The Fifth ward republicans, particu
larly those who control the ward, and
those who would like to control, are
engaged in a factional fight of large
proportions. Meeting after meeting
has been held, some of them at hours
well into the morning, and all effort at
reconciliation of the opposing elements
seems unavailing. The fight started
over the selection of delegates from
the Fourth and Fifth wards by a Cul
lom committee at a secret session. Of
the eight named, there is one that the
Fifth ward has objections to, and those
outside the secret Cullom committee
demand that the delegate to the con
gressional convention in question be
replace'd by another man, credited in
many places with being the boss of the
I. lor Up Afrainat (oinnilllrr.
The fight has become so bitter that
in the Fifth ward the Cullom, Yates
and Ixwden factions, who have been
most bitter against each other, have
lined up together against the commit
tee that made the appointments in se
cret, and demand the removal of one
of the eight selected. In fact, it is said
that the ruction and the refusal of the
committee to make the concession de
manded has turned some of the staunch
Cullom men in the Fifth ward against
the senator, and there is talk of their
.Machine In Danger.
On the other hajid the men that made
the selections contend that the man
over whom the light is made is one of
the big wheels of the republican band
wagon, and that the whole machine
will be sadly impaired if he is removed
from the delegation. Until the matter
is settled no caucus of the ward will be
called, it is said, and as the matter
stands now. it appears that there will
be two delegate tickets, and a hotly
waged contest at the primaries Satur
day. The faction demanding a change
in the delegation is firm, and claims
that the only settlement of the trouble
will be the concession of the one dele
gate by the other side. If this is done,
a ward caucus will probably be held
and the delegation confirmed.
C'nndMntrM at n Dlondvanlaiee.
Candidates for the other offices are
at a disadvantage and the quarrel Is
causing no end of difficulty for1 them in
the district. Several candidates are
preparing to place their own delegates
tickets before the primaries Satur
REMAINS OF BOTH
TAKEN TO HAVANA
Victims of Lodging House Tragedy to
Be Buried There Said Woman's
Husband Had Threatened Both.
The remains of J. Henry Deckard
and Mrs. Jude Steinhardt have been
returned to Havana, 111., for burial. The
woman's body was sent home last night
at the request of her family, and last
nieht an undertaker at Havana sent
instructions to send Deckard's remains
there. The man's body was sent to
Havana this morning.
A Peorfia paper, speaking of the trag
edy here, has the following:
Jude Steinhardt is a respectable,
hard working carpenter of Havana, and
has also made that town his home for
number of years. He has a family
of six children, two of whom are of age
and all livine at home. The wife who
died at the hands of Deckard has been
susDected for some time of undue inti
macy with the latter. While Deckarfl
as on the Dolice force it is said that
Steinhardt caught them together and
threatened to kill them both, ueckani
ceased his attentions, apparently for
time, but it was freely wnispereu
around the town that there were clan
destine meetings of the couple at an
old boat house on the river.
Sunday night Mrs. Steinhardt left
home and did not return. The iamiiy
did not say anything about the matter
and no one in the town knew or the
nnement. Deckard had told his wife
that he was going away on business.
When the news of the tragedy came
from Rock Island both families were
prostrated with grief and horror.
"Make Hay While the Sun Shines."
There is a lesson in the work of the
thrifty farmer. He knows that- the
bright sunshine may last but a day and
he prepares for the showers which are
so liable to follow. So it should be
with every household. Dysentery, diar
rhoea and cholera morbus may attack
some member of the home without
warning. Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy, which Is
the best known medicine for these dis
eases, should always be kept at hand,
as Immediate treatment is necessary,
and delay may prove fatal. For sale
