WHEELAN BECOMES CANDIDATE FOR
Henry L. Wheelan today announced 'Mr. Wheelaa's -unswerving party I
his candidacy for" the democratic nom
ination . for , minority representative
from the Thirty-third senatorial dis
trict, thus formally confirming the im
pression that has prevailed for some
months that at the proper time he

"After having heard the mayor of
Rock Island tell of the fame of this
city, the mayor of Moline discourse
upon the renown of that eity,-aml the
mayor or Davenport talk patronizingly
of 'both. I can understand why the
United Slates governnu'iit has estab
lished an arsenal betweenthe three."
Thus spoke Governor Johnson of Min
nesota at the close of a banquet in
his hoiunr at the Harper house lastl
The remark, it may be added, did
not offend any one, for the governor
. was merely joking, and he is as charm

eloquent when speaking seriously.

fealty, running - through a period" of
the best part of his life. ' Ever since
he. attained his .majority he has been
active in . democratic . affairs, having
served on either the city or county
committee for 20 years, and for eight
years was chairman of the democratic
city-township committee. He is. today
a member of the county committee.
While he" has, not sought the distinc
tion of delegate to the larger conven

for 20 years, always ready to do his

would enter the field for the honor.
Mr. Wheelan's friends throughout the
district have been engaged in advanc
ing his candidacy, and while he has
not discouraged it, he has withheld
his . endorsement of the -proposition
until he felt that conditions warranted

oriental threw himself beneath the
car of Juggernaut' in the hope" that in
his dying vision he would catch a
glimpse of Rock Island; that Alexan
der stopped his tour of conquest at
the Himalayas because Davenport was
not on the other side, and that Ulysses
ceased plowing the main because he
hadn't , a Moline implement to finish
the job with. Later, speaking serious
ly, the governor said:

"I am growing more and more to

"A man's first" duty owed to his

Mayor H. C. Schaffer of Rock Island
responded to the toast "Rock Island."
With pardonable pride he made allu
sion to this city's commercial import
ance and to some of the agencies that
have carried, Rock Island's name to
the uttermost corners of the earth.
He was followed by Mayor Andrew Ol
son of Moline, who let it be known
that there was little in the world that
is worth having that he could not
claim for Moline. Mayor George W.
Scott of Davenport, who followed,
spoke of the motherly feeling the city
across the river has for us on this
side and the pride taken in "such, ad
