-TRAIN GOES DOWN BANK
Crashes Into Ton! House nn Right of
Way, and the Two Ocupants
of Shanty Are Caught.
One man was killed and another ser
iously, and perhaps fatally injured,
when 10 oars of a west bound Mil
waukee freight train were derailed at
Albany at 7 o'clock this iflorntng. The
man who was killed was Fred Shut
ting, residing about a mile from Al
bany. John Kisk was pinioned under
one of the c-s that went over an em
bankment, and hjs injuries are of a
very serious character.
The wreck was caused by iho break
ing of a wheel on a sand car. This
car was derailed, and it took nine
others ofT th etrack with it. The de
railed cars tore along the right of
way for about 300 feet, ripping up the
roadbed, and finally crashing into a
tool house standing near the track. A
number of the cars toppled over the
embankment. Shattuck and Fisk we.-e
in the tool house, and heard the train
Ik KIHr.I liiMlnully.
Fisk went outside, and Shattuck
stood in the doorway. SeeWg his dan
ger. Fisk started down rtie hank, but
slipped and fell, and 'was caught no
der one of the overturned cars. Shit-
tuck had not left the tool house wh-Mi
i he derailed train struck It. and he was
killed alpiost instantly.

Xose on the scene at once devoted
jfct'inselves to the task of unearthing
'the two men from underneath the
wreck. Shattuck was dead when hi-s
body was pulled out from under the
debris. Fish was securely fastened un
der one of the cars, and was removed
with difficulty, lie was taken at once
to Albany, and given surgical atten
tion. He sustained .several bad cuts
and injuries about the head, and his
body was badly crushed?

JUST HUGE JOKE
Republicans Do Not Realize Yet
How Mack Received the
DELEGATES IN A DAZE
People Who Named Him I Mil Not In
tend He Should be Candidate
Whole District Is Split. '
The nomination of Judge David B ;
Mack by the republicans of tne
Fourth district for the vacancy on the
Illinois Fiipreme bench at. Macomb
yesterday afternoon was either the re-
nlt of a deep plot, or a- jone. and the
delegates in general are at a loss to
know which. It the work of the
Sue Italian hand in politics, and eve.i
the astute politicians of the Rock Is
land county, delegation do not know
just what has happened. As a result
f the deadlock and the surprising
termination of it, the whole disiri-ji
s split, and there promises to be ser
ous trouble in the republican camp m
the campaign. In this congressional
district particularly, there have J ?
vploped signs of a breach, and ths-e
is no little bitterness between Mercer
county' republicans and the Rock Is
land leaders. The row is not to oe
confined to the judicial campaign,
either, to all appearances, but will ex
lend into the congressional campaign
and that there will be a bitter fight
made on the nomination for congress
man is certain.
So far the undercurrent that brought
about Mack's nomination has not been
discovered. On the surface Ms nomi
nation seems to have been the result
of a joke. Senator Berry of Hancock
and E. A. Snively of Canton were the
central figures. These representatives
of the bitter opposing Deneen and Lar
imer factions were seated near ea?h
other, and Snively turned to Berry and
"I guess I will vote for Mack."
"You don't dare," was the retort, and
just then Fulton was called on th.
200th ballot, and Snively voted 15 for
Mack. Hancock followed with 9, He.v
derson came in with four, McDonough
gave 9 more and deserted Switzer anl

changed to Jarman. realizing that the
4 . would nominate. Everett Harding
of Monmouth had been trying to get
his delegation's vote in, and whea ne
finally was called, he delivered S lo
Mack, the Warren delegation desert-J
ing Brown for the first time. The
delegates could not realize that the
dark horse had received more than
enough votes to nominate, and it was
some minutes before they "came to,'
and saw that it was all over but the
shouting. Then they shouted, and
some one woke up with a motion to
make it unanimous.
The next ballot, it is stated, would
have seen the nomination of Wall, a

The convention went on record for
a strictly partisan vote for the elec-
ion of the supreme court justice. The

party vote, and urges party duty as
the chief consideration in the cam-'
The candidate named by the con
vention is left in a difficult position.
The district is split as a result of the
contest, and 'apparently the very peo
ple who brought about his nomination
are not for him. The split is deep,
and can not be .patched up in a day,
and Judge Mack has b"t little time to
campaign. He is now in the north
and can not get back home for sevenl
days. Even if the district were not so
thoroughly disrupted, his would be a
hard task, and in view of the present
situation, the republicans have littlo
hope for his success.
During the afternoon the following
judicialeommittee was named:

The office which Mr. Mack seeks
was left vacant by the de'ath of Jus

While all of the delegations ' were
loyal to their candidates two delega
tions were particularly so, these being
the Adams county delegates, who for
199 ballots allowed their chairman,
"Fog Horn Bill" Sclagenhauff to cast
18 ballots for Wall. One exception
to this program was made when 9
votes were cast for Haas. The oth t ,
noticeable delegation was that from
Warren, who allowed Everett Harding
to pipe "eight votes for Brown" 199
times. This announcement was gener
ally greeted with laughter because of
the peculiar nasal twang given by
MrvHarding. . . ,

A staff correspondent of the Chi

graphic story from Macomb last
night as follows:

been engaged In the hottest political
fight in the history. of western Illi
nois. "Mr. Mack comes from the same
city as former State Senator Orville
F. Berry, one of Governor Deneen's
closest advisers, who has been at the
head of the J3eneen forces in the
deadlocked convention. Mr. Mack and
Mr. Berry long have been political
cronies and the nomination of Mr.
Mack can scarcely be otherwise than
pleasing to Governor Deneen. In
spite of these political affiliations.
Mr. Mack's name was brought into
the convention by the Chiperfield
men themselves, and the 15 votes
from Fulton county, Mr. Chiper
field s home, were the first to be cast
for him. Never was there a more
surprised crowd than these Fulton
county delegates when Mr. Mack got

the afternoon cast the county's 15 votes

lowed up the action with additional
votes. Then as Senator Berry chanced
to oass by Snively in walking down n

inquired of the Deneen lieutenant what
sort of a judge he thought former
County Judge Mack, Senator Berry'j

'"First class, but he wouldn't take

"Just then the ,name of Fulton,
fourth on the roll of 14 counties, was
cried out by the secretary, who was
calling the 200th ballot.
"'Fifteen votes for Judge Mack tf

Those who claim tbat the Mississippi
river is not being utlized would have
realized their mistake had they been
on the levee this morning after 9
o'clock. Hundreds of people were lin
ed up on the banks of the river, many
more were on the bridges, and scores
were on the water in various kinds of
craft. Just as the steamer Columbia
went up the river with 500 passengers
from Davenport and Rock Island, the
big steamer Quincy was landing in
Rock Island with over 150 people on
board. The two ferries were crowded
with people viewing the races. Sev
eral towboats were in the harbor, and
any number of pleasure boats darted
about in the river. Any one who was
on the river bank this morning must
