McConocbie and tbe "m-sheen are
just now laboring among tbe high licence
element of the republican party, telling
them bow he will bring the saloons to
time should he be elected, etc In sup
port of this position tbe "masheen" put
the following in this rooming's Union:
Nearly every saloon keeper in tbe city
was seen last week, and on Sunday at
tended tbe secret caucus which agreed
upon tbe democratic ticket which was
nominated on Monday night. They
agreed to labor for that ticket, and on
Monday night the free drinks begin to
flow from many quarters. Let us see
how many voters of this city can be
bougbt with a glass of beer.
Tbe inference aud insult conveyed by
the following bluff is enough to turn
honest and fearless thinking men against
tbe "masheen" that invented it. In a
few days McConocbie with a guide from
tbe "masbeen" will be around among tbe
saloon men telling them bow well they
will fare at his bands should he succeed
at tbe coming election. McConochie has
placed himself on two different sides of
this liquor question before.
There are in mst communities two
elements of disposition; one that has a
tendency to appreciate everything that
aims to advance public good; the city's
advantages and every effort that tends to
improve them, while the other has an aim
to depreciate all things that look to the
general advancement and wolfnre of tbe
city and of lbs people. These two influ
ences are as opposite in their purposes
and effects, it is need!es to sty, as two
opposing elements could be. for one is as
elevating and promoting in its effects as
thi other is degrading and reiardiog.
These two factions have come together
in the impending content for the mayor
alty of Rock Inland and it remains for
the suffrages of tbe peoule tn decide
which shall triumph.
In the democratic candidate for tbe
office of executive of the oily, is afforded
opportunity to elect a mnn who belongs
to the first class named, a nrn who is of
an appreciative disposition, who has
public interests at heart and whng idea
is to make the best of things about us,
to Improve and to advance those advan
tages that we possess and to lose no op
portunity to acquire new ones. Mr.
llass, the democratic nominee, is pos
sessed of pride in his riiy, is publio
spirited and progressive.
On the other band tbe republican nom
ioee has always shown a tendency to de
preciate not only tbe city, but all that
pertains to its progress and welfare
This assertion is simply based upon bis
official conduct. Tbe nublic bos been
told of bis compliment (?) to tbe Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement association,
an organization composed of the very
bone and sinew of tbe city, comprising
nearly every business man and tbe ma
jority of our heaviest property holders.
Yet when tbe plan of ordinance which
this representative and progressive body
sent into tbe council for its considers
tion relative to tbe paving of Second
' avenue. Aid. McConocbie arose and said:
" While I don't raise objection to tbe mat
ter of paving Second avenue as I have no
property interests there, I don't have
much respect for this 'mutual admira
tion society over on tbe corner.' I
don't believe in its dictating to us bow to
run this city." A few seconds later after
a citizen had addressed tbe council on
tbe subject of paving, McConochie, not
satisnca witn naving insulted the asso
ciation once, repealed his former un
founded statement with the additional
remark, "paving may be all right,
but we don't take any stock in those fel
lows over on tbe corner." To the class
of man who compose tbe Citizens' Im
provement association, most men would
interpret Mr. McConocbie's remarks as
vary hostile, if not exceedingly disre
spectful. But this is not tbe only instance of
McConocbie's manifest opposition to a
progressive spirit. lie believes, rather in
belittling and crying down tbe city than
levating and advancing it. When the
council was deliberating on tbe proposi
tion to sell the waterworks, McConochie
expressed his disapproval to buying tbe
armory, (which was perfectly just and
proper), but he again seized upon an op
portunity to display something of tbe
character of his disposition. "I would
favor," said be, "the leasing of
tbe present quarters for a period
not to exceed three years. I wouldn't
care to take a risk for a longer time than
that on any property below Twentieth
street, much less to buy, for there is no
property below that line (Twentieth
street) that is worth more than twenty-
five cents on the dollar, and at tbe end of
three years it will have depreciated tbe
other twenty-five per cent."
Yet this man, with so little estimation
of the value of property in tbe very heart
of the city, who has only slurs and in
suits for the most honorable and esteemed
business men and citizens, has the inex
plicable gall to pose as a candidate fur
mayor. Bis candidacy is as preposterous
a thing as could be under the circum
stances. Who can say candidly in the
face of bis official record, which certain
ly reflects his ideas and sentiments, that
such a man is a fit mayor for a city like
Rock Island on the eve of 'a substantial
Tba republicans held a caucus in the
Sixth ward last night to select a nominee
in place of Aid. Wm. McConocbie, re
tired. J. J. Relmers was chairman and
Will R. Johnson, secretary. Robert Linn
was nominated by acclamation, but de
clined. T. F. Cary and C. J. Larkin,
both ex-aldermen, were nominated but

of Fire on tha Head of a Wayward Son
A Divorce Case Costa n Lawyer Dearly
Other Chicago Happenings.
Chicago, Ma -eh 37. There was a sad
scene in Justice Woodman's court yesterday
morning. E. B. Davis, a lad of 10, was be
fore tha court or a charge of burglary. Bis
partner in the crime, Albert Langutb, plead
ed guilty to the oharge and was held to the
criminal court k bonds of $1,000. Languth
told how Davis und himself had broken into
a house and stolm the property. Davis1 at
torney secured a continuance in his ease until
April 3 in bonds of 11,000.
When the ofBsers attempted to remove
Davis from tbe court-room to the jail a tall,
gray-haired won An pressed her way through
the crowd surrounding young Davis until
she gained bis siie. Then, with an agonis
ing wail, she tl raw her arms around tha
boy's ueck ami, in heart-broken tones,
"Oh, my darling boy. You are not guilty.
I know you are not guilty, and tbey shall
not take you fron me."
Tbe officers win some effort unwound tbe
mother's arms f r m the uc ck of her wayward
boy and startei with bun to the patrol
wagon. Tbe mother struggled to follow, but
for a few ruomtnts strong arms held her
back. The inott er's love, however, proved
stronger than tin hands which would keep
her away from t ie idol of her heart, and she
wus soon again at his side. I
With almost superhuman strength she
threw back tbe officers who were leading
away ber son, and, grasping him In ber
anus, she bore b m into the wash-room, and
with otie arm around his neck aha held the
ofiioer at bay w. Ui the other. The mother's
kisses and tears fell upon the boy's hair
aud frtce as in aeents of love she told him
how lirialy she was convinced of his inno
cences The boy struggled to free himself from her
embrace, for her words of love and sytapathy
were worse to hiia than year iu a prison cell.
"Oh, my darlitg, my own, the light and joy
of my old age," sobbed the mother, "that I
should have lived to see this day. I could have
buried you easier than to see you behind tbe
prison liars. Fleise, Mr. Officer, do not take
my boy from me "
For some minutes the hardy policemen were
unnerved, and teitrs glistened in their eyes and
trickled down thoir cheeks. Tt the presence of
tbat mother's borndles love they were rowed,
aud many men bared their bonds as tbey be
held the scene.
It was finally necessary to drag the boy
from bis mother arras and take bim to tbe
putrol wagou, wL ile two men carried Mrs.
Davis from tbe station. As the poor heart
broken womau p iss mI from the building,
Justice Scully, wao had been a witness of the

A CHICAGO LAWYER'S FALL.
Sent to Jail for a Year for Fooling with
a ltvorce Case.
Chicago, March UT. Charles J. Boattie, a
lawyer with man gray hairs, and who has
practiced tn this dty ever since the fire, was
sentenced yeeterdty by Judge Jamieson to a
year's imprisonment in the county jail, and
to pay a tine of t'OO.
Tbe charges agrdnst Beattle wore, in brief,
i follows: Some time ago Mrs. Ada E. Gor
don sued for a divorce from ber husband.
The case came up in due time, and a decree of
divorce was male out, but not entered.
owing to cbargett on the part of tbe hus
band that tbe evidence upon which
tbe divorce was jrranted was false. Beattie,
it seems, bad promised Mrs. Gordon the di
vorce by a certain day, and as it was not ob
tainable by tbat time he gave tbe woman a,
copy of the unentered decree and assured her
that it was all right. Another obarge
against Beattie was that be had written a
letter to Mrs. Gordon referring to the fact
that she bad liased her cause upon desertion
and cruelty, but afterward perjured testi
mony to the effect that Gordon had been
guilty of adultery was introduced.
The judge was very severe on tbe lawyer
in pronouncing sentence. Referring to tbe
letter mentioned s bove he said: "Liars should
have good memories, and they should not
write letters. Nobody knows how
many women thers may be, who, on account
of these fraudulent divorcee, are neither
maid, wife, nor widow."
Then Beattie win called to the bar and sen
tenced. His lip fc-embled and tears glistened
in his eyes. He was a pitiable sight as be
stood there with tae sunlight glancing on his
silver-gray hair. After the judge bad an
nounced the penalty the lawyer bowed and
walked back to h s seat A stay of execu
tion was granted to give time to prepare a
writ of error in bt half of tbe accused.

requested the attorney general to bring suit
against the Des Moines Valley Railroad
company to dispossess that company of 800,-

for the improvement of the Des Moines river
at the point named, the state to the rail

AN OCEAN MYSTERY.
Wreckage Found That Creates Much Anx
iety and Uncertainty,
New York, March 27. There is a vast
deal of uncertainty and speculation regard
ing the probable fate of tbe Conserve, which
left this port March 19 for Samana to engage
in tbe service of Hippolyte in the Haytian
civil war. A sunken steam launch and a
corpse with a life-buoy round it were sighted
on Sunday by the Portuguese bark Vaseo da
Gama within forty miles of the spot where
the Mallery line steamer Colorado of the day
before picked up tbe bodies of two men on a
life-raft There was nothing on tbe launch
to indicate the name of tbe vesel to which she
It whs at first believed to belong to the
Conserva, and the discovery by the steamer
Gate City, en route from Savannah to Boa
ton, of a metallic lifedxiat and one lapstreak
boat the latter newly painted white, besides
sofa and other wreckage, led some to be
lieve that these belonged to the Conserva,
particularly as the first tfirea ' letters of the
name on the large boat looked like "Con."
The agents of tbe Conserva, however, declare
that she had no such articles on board and
the painter who painted the vessel says her
name was plainly marked on her life-boats.
It is now rumored that tbe Haytian gunboat
was to be destroyed by a clock-work bomb
smuggled aboard by some enemy of Hippolyte.
Everything tbat can at this moment be said
about the lost steamer must be speculative.
u guesses count for anything a very good
one mu t be that the wrecked steamer was
tbe Britisher Yedmandale of about 3,000 tons
burden that was sighted in distress twenty
four hours before tbe corpses were picked up
about 133 miles away. The opinion is enter
tained by some tbat tha steamer whose
wreckage was discovered by the Gate City,
was the Nanticoke from Newport Newa, Va.,
for Ruatun, Honduras, and loaded down to
the gunwales. Tbe supposition Is that the
rtanncoke encountered the equinoctial gales.
and being dangerously loaded, could make no
headway and put back for Chesapeake hay,
in which attempt she foundered.
The pilot boat Webb which reached this
port from southern waters yesterday reports
that when fourteen miles off Fen wick light
ship she picked up a life-boat which bore the
name of tbn Conserve. The boat was slight

This is tbe third life-boat picked up in the
