TOE ROCK. ISLAND :ARGU,
Significance of the Committee
Meeting at Oquawka J
.';,- ' . ,V , Friday.
ONE OR TWO CANDIDATES?
Those In Field From Rock
County and Wcrts' At
, titude. '
As stated in last evening's Argus,' a
meeting of the democratic senatorial
committee of the Thirty-third district
has been called to be held in Oquawka
at 10 o'clock Friday morning to deter
mine the number of candidates that
will.be nominated by the democrats at
the August primaries. Under the prac
tices of year's standing the democrat
in the making of selections for minor
ity representatives have . confined the
choice to one nominee, and from the
best that can be learned this seems to
be the preference this year both of the
rank and file of the party and of the
Five lii Field.
There are five known candidates in
the field for. the nomination, H. -L.
"Whtelan and C. C. Wilson of Rock Is
land, W. R. Moore and S. D. Hicks of
Mollne and the present representative,
Hon. Everette L. Werts of Oquawka.
It was announced that Dr.. A. B. John
son of East Mollne would also enter
the field, but this is denied.
AVrrta' Breach of Faith.
While Mr. Werts has avoided Rock
Island since the preliminary campaign
came on and has sent no direct word
here of his candidacy, it has been
known for some time that he intended
to make an attempt to gain (he nomin
ation to succeed himself, and this
notwithstanding the solemn pledge
made by him and by his friends in his
behalf two years ago that under no
circums'ances would he be a candi
date for a second term if nominated
then. He further stated, at that time,
if he was elected he would concede
the nomination this year to Rock Is
land and that both he and his friends
in Mercer and . Henderson counties
would see to it that the nomination
' "caire to Rock Island. Of all these
promises leading Mercer county dem
ocrats are aware as some of them
- were made in the Argus office in the
presence of. men who were then Mr.
Werts supporters in MerGer county,
but whom it is understood now repu
diate his present attitude as a polit
ical breach of trust.
Danger la Many Caadldate.
In view of Mr. Werts' candidacy, it
is somewhat to be regretted that so
many candidates have developed in
Rock Island county, notwithstanding
that the office is one for which any
good democrat may well aspire. ' The
danger in so many, however, lies In
the fact that the vote may be so split
up and divided that Mr. Werts may
again slip In. It would tend to bring
the nomination to this county, which
has not had It since the present dis
trict has been in force, if it were pos
sible for the four candidates from this
county to get together and centralize
the vote on one of the number.
Merely a StiKgentlon.
This reference to the situation,
though offers no suggestion or even
hint as to any particular candidate,
but merely is made in the interest of
gaining the nomination for a Rock Is
land county man If it can possibly" be
accomplished. - , ?

The county clerk's office this morn
ing was the scene of a lively skirmish
in which a dozen republican office
seekers battled with each other for
the first place in line tyefore the coun
ty clerk's window. The primary law
went into effect, and long before the
clerk's office opened at 8 o'clock the
politicians were on hand anxious to
be the first to file their petitions for
nomination. The candidates were
seated about the door, and when the
janitor threw open the doors at 8
o'clock', there was a grand rush, rival
ing the most lively football rush ever
seen at Island City park. John Rose,
the big Moline undertaker who wants
to be nominated for coroner, having
the. advantage in weight, landed ahead
of the other nine, and with State's
Attorney J. K. Scott, who seeks re-
nomination, hanging tight to his coat
tails, the Moline man shot through
the door and landed squarely in fronts
of the clerk's window. His petition
was the first to be filed, and Mr.
Scott's was second, giving them first
place on the ballot in the list of can
didates for- their respective offices. As
there are five candidates for the nom
ination for coroner, and there are to
be four for state's attorney, the first
place on the ballot is considered an
advantage, and hence the skirmish this
morning. Mr. Scott's petition has in
the neighborhood of 800 signatures, a
number over 10 times as large as was
The rrUtionM Filed.
So intense was the excitement, and
so keen the desire to secure first
place on the primary ballot, that some
of those in the line this morning,
foiled in their effort to reach the
clerk's window, threw their petitions
over the high railing, in the hope that
they might be recorded ahead of the
others. . . ; . -The
petitions . filed at the opening
of the office were those of George W.
Gamble for circuit clerk; J. K. Scott
and L. M. Magill, for state's attor
ney; John F. Rose, C. W. Heck,
George F. McXabney, Dr. C. T. Foster
and Dr. J. E. Asay, for coroner; Wal
lace Trelchler, for county surveyor.
and J. W. Simonson, for member of
the republican senatorial committee.
; H. M. Schriver and George C. Wen
ger, who are both to be candidates
for the nomination for state's attor
ney, were in the rush, but did not file
their petitions when they found that
they were unable to secure the first
place on the ticket. The petitions of
both were expected to be filed later
in the day.
July 8 is the last day for filing the
petitions for a place on tfc ballot at
the primary Aug. 8, and it is expected
that a large number of additional pe
titions will be filed before the day
person. Those who left their ad
dresses will ,have their money for-,
