Democrats Agree to Harmonize
Thirty-three delegates from Scott
county to the democratic second dis
trict congressional convention at Iowa
City. Jan. 20. were instructed to vote
for the nomination of Henry Vollmer
for congress. Police Magistrate Louis
E. Rcddewlg .yesterday withdrew from
the race, leaving the field, as far as
Scot- county Js concerned, clear for
Mr. Vailmer. County Attorney Fred
Vollmer withdrew from the race v.hen
the city sutom ay announced his candi
dacy after the Jackson day banquet.
Thus Scott county will go into the
ronrressfonal convention with a
united delegatien for the city attor
ney and with assurances of the sup
port of Clinton and other county dele
gations it seems to be a foregone
conclusion that Henry Vollmer will
be tb nomtnee after the first for
mal ballot is taken. There are 114
delegates In the congressional con
vention. Half of these .or 67, are from
Scott and Clinton counties. A major
ity of the delegates is sufficient to
nominate. Thus to secure the nomina
tion of Mr. Vollmer but one additional
delete will be needed This and
more is already promised from oLher
counties and It Is predicted that two
third of the delegates at the congres-sion.-.!
convention will vote for the
Davenport city attorney.

Cobequid Rescue to Go Down in Shipping Annals
As One of the Most Notable - Ever Accomplished
moved from the corporation depart
ment on the orders of Harry Woods,
secretary of state. .Mr. Woods refused
to discuss his action.
Conflict between the secretary of
state and the civil service commission
was foreshadowed by the opinion given
to Mr. Woods by Attorney General
Lucey, who declared that examiners of
chauffeurs are to be appointed by the
secretary of state without reference to
an eligible list prepared by the civil
service commission as tbe result of
competitive examinations. The com
mission had already announced it will
hold such examinations.
An actual clash came in. the refusal
prove payment of the salary of F. J.
McComb, appointed by Mr. Woods as i
custodian of the capitol. Mr. McComb I
remained at work and a suit is expect
ed fa -which the state-wide civil ser
vice law will be put to a court test on
In the course of his opinion Attor
ney General Lucey said:
"The entire scope of the provisions
of this motor vehicle law is special,
and the power and duty of the secre
tary of state to appoint tbe examiners
for chauffeurs licenses is thoroughly
in accord with the other provisions and
requirements of the law, and tbe other
provisions of this law are directly in
conflict with the alleged power of the
state civil service commission to ap
point, or select for' appointment, an
examiner for chauffeurs.
"I am of the opinion that it vis uot
intended by the general assembly, in
passing these two acts, that the alleg
ed amended state civil service act was
to include within its provisions the po
sition of examiner of chauffeurs, and
that the power by this special provis
ion of the -motor vehicle act may be
exercised by the secretary of state,
without reference to any alleged eligi
ble list certified by the state civil ser

Sketch of lost steamer Cobequid and scene of disaster.
Yarmouth, N. S., Jan. 17. The res
cue of all the passengers and crew of
the Royal Mail packet Cobequid,
which went to pieces on the rocks six
miles off Port Maitland, will go down
in shipping annals as one of the most
notable ever accomplished on the At
lantic coast. Wireless appeals which
the Cobequid first made for assist
ance were picked up by the Canadian
Northern liner Royal George many
hours after they were made. The
doomed vessel could not tell her posi
tion, a"nd it was only after a 36 hour
battle with wind and wave- that she
was sighted. She had begun to hmi
up under the cannonading ot terriSe
seas that had been merciless from tba
time the vessel struck. . .
One hundred and eight people; pu
sengers and crews, are now safe U

attitude of the new commission, are

The mock trial play entitled "The
Larceny of a Rooster," given for the
benefit of the Aledo high school at
tbe Aledo opera house Tuesday
evening. Jan. 1, by some of the most
prominent business men of the city,
assisted by Col. A. V. Newton of Wor
cester, Mass., who was tbe author and j
originator of the play, was attended
by a lacge audience and was enter
taining from start to finish. It af
forded unbounded merriment and was
a success, in every way. Harry R. Mor
gan. Termer county recorder, and a j
well-known chicken fancier was ac
cused by T. H. Cobb, the druggist of
stealing one of his best Plymouth
Rock roosters. Mr. Morgan was de
fended by Col. A. V. Newton of Wor
cester, Mass. and O. E. Carlstrom of
this city was attorney for the plain
tiffs, with Judge Henry E. Burgess
acting 'as judge. A. E. Bridgford as.

D. A. Hebel, Dr. Mj-roa Bissby,

Haas, W. H: Philleo, E. H. Osborn,
Guy Carroll. The play was an exact
reproduction of a real court scene in
methods and nroceedure and on that
account was very interesting to manyX
who had never attended a real trial.
All members carried their parts well
and the play was full of funny hits
and ridiculous situations. All seemed
well satisfied with the verdict ren
dered by the jury, "Not guilty, but
required to restore the rooster."
