and well being of all classes of people.
the candidate for mayor, is one of Rock
Island's foremost representative men.
He Is In every serse a self-made man.
Born in Oermany, ten miles north of
Berlin, Sept. 6, 188), be came to Ameri
ca Dec. 23, 1854, and at once located in
Rock Island. He was a poor boy so
poor, indeed, thatduring the remainder of
that winter he hal scarcely clothing
enough to keep Lis body from freezing.
But he was possessed of grit and enenry
and having secured employment in the
tin shop of Henry Housmann, he com
nienoed learning his trade. He worked
hard, and being economical, he managed
iy self denial to lay aside something
every month. He learned the tinner's
trade thoroughly and then worked at it
for ten years, during which lime he did
as much good hard work us any man in
Rook Island. He tolled early and late,
oftentimes being engaged from daylight
until nightfall inside of some of the
great chimneys ol upper Mississippi
steamboats, and thi?n again exposed for
days at a time to the territic heat of the
sun while engaged in tin roofing. All
this time his courage never failed him;
he toiled by day ami educated himself by
reading late at nigh:.
BA putting his st vlngs in the bank be
had accumulated for himself, at the end
of eleven years, enough money to ems
bark in business f ( r himself, and in Oc
tober, 1865, he sta'ted a stove and tin
store. By pursuing the same bonsai, eco
nomical methods that characterized bis
early life, he soon built up a lucrative
and successful business. He extended his
business as fast as practicable, and be
came a contractor in routing and distil
lery work. He went outside of town for
work, and the satisfaction with which he
discharged every duty gave him the confi
dence of the public and larger and more
extensive undertakings came into his
bands. He roofed maoy of the govern
ment buildings on the Inland of Rock
Island; he built the roof for the capUol
at Des Moines, the capitol and state
bouse and city hall buildings aSt. Paul,
the Southern Illinois penitentiary, be
sides attending to several important con
tracts at Halt Lake City, Utah. Three
jears ago he sold o it his business inters
eats to the firm of Willard Baker & Co.,
and since then has secured his successors
a $20,000 contract to roof the cus
torn bouse at Des Moines. The re
mark able success that baa attended his
business ventures l.as been due to his
own efforts, energy and straightforward
Having retired from active business he
has devoted himself to the upbuilding of
the city. Last May he went to Washing
ton and engineered the passage of the
bill appropriating 1275,000 for the re
placing of the atsenal dam. He also
was largely instrunental in bringing the
viaduct project to its present status.
When the new Improvement associa'
tion was formed last fall, Mr. Hass was
the first choice for president and wss
chosen wholly without his knowledge.
He Las never taken any part in politics,

for seven years on Tits Aitous, succes

A lawyer's fteunelems Love for a Fal
len 'Woman Mr n Bat tonal Meeting
I'pon the Street of Oavenport
Whanned for II io Family's Make.
The Davenport Timet of last evening
bad the following sensational article:
On Saturdny evening, some time be
tween 8 and 9 o'clock, an elegantly
dressed woman, twenty-eight years of
age, stood nervously at the corner of
Second and Harrison streets. She was
pretty, of attractive figure, wore an air of
anxiety, but was at the same time self
possessed and determined. She was con
fronted bv a roan, whom she had endeav
ored to puss by unnoticed, and then, on
being accosted by him, she produced a
pistol, which gleamed like silver as the
man looked down on it. He might have
read in her blazing eye or along the sheen
of the weapon, "Aprtments for rent in
the nearest graveyard." The woman,
who stood in this defiant attitude, was a
fallen sister, yet, strange to say, she was
defending the purity, honor and happi
ness of that man's home ; she was endeav
oring to shield that man's wife and little
ones, from a Bcandal that would have
wrecked their home.
"Don't speak to me I Keep a way I I
warned you never to see me I Go back,
for God's sake, to your wife and chil
dren! You will ruin them!" These ex
pressions came thick and fast from the
woman s lips and she held her pistol in
the face of tbe man who endeavored to
reason with her. Finding that two or
three persons were witnessing the scene,
and that exposure would follow, tbe man
walked away in one direction and the
woman quickly disappeared in another.
Here is a brief abstract of the causes
which led up to this scene.
A few years ago this woman of the
street was living in Andalusia. Her fam
ily and connections there are among the
wealthiest in Rock Island county. She
bad been married, and unhappily. Her
husband was a bard drinker, and she
sought tbe aid of the courts for a way
out of her troubles. She employed a
prominent attorney of Rock Island to
procure her a divorce. He was the man
whom the adjured so pleadingly on the
street on Saturday night. He is eminent
in hix profession, has a charming, devo
ted wife, lovelv children, a comfortable
home, is in middle life and stands high
at the bar and in various secret societies.
What more could he wanlY He wanted
the love of an outcast; and lie has sigh' d
for it, prayed for it on bended knees and
implored her in his devouring infatuation
to fly with bim to the ends of the earth
When he was preparing her divorce
case they met frequently. He became
enamored of this fair client and has
blindly loved ever since. The divorce
being obtained a short time ago, she
drifted away from her home. Through
slow gradations she became a public wo
man, gave herself up, but in no brazen
way, to a "fast" life
"Tu Dquamler ber whole ruiuDitir
WUUo 'twaa ;ay."
The lawyer pursued her, liviug with
her as long as be could remain away from
home. She came to this city and took
rooms up stairs at the corner of Brady
and Fifth, over a Chinese laundry. The
lawyer followed her bere. His wife, with
intuitive misgivings, tracked him to the
bower of his adored one. She begged
him to return to his bome and children
She would forgive all because she loved
much. Her pleading was of no avail
She then went to the police. They
ordered the woman out of town , the weak
creature who was yet woman enough to
resist bis love, but the strong, sensual
adulterer was unmolested. Then she
sold out her furniture, and hid herself in
another part of tbe city, in order to escape
her crazed adorer. He had lost sight of
her for a few nights. Tbe woman was
not all sic; she would not be a party to
the wreck of a household. He came over
the river and walked the streets for sev
eral nights, seeking her vainly. He had
sworn to shoot ber if she would not be
his, and it was for this reason that when
they at last met she was armed.
What will be the end of this mad in
fatuation cannot be predicted. Phari
sees may stone this woman; worse women
whose clandestine enjoyments are hedged
from public gaze by social barriers may
mock ber, yet, who knows that in re
pelling the wealth and resisting tbe love
of a married adorer, her quickened con
science sees in the tears of his hapless
wife or bears in the prattle of his little
children, the revival of recollections that
were tbe dream of her maidenhood but
are now tbe extinguisted fires of every
honorable hope which once burned within
Rock Island. March 27. 1889.

cratic Clty-Townatilp Committee.

tbe honor bestowed upon me by the dem

proposes going back to visit his native
land England in May. He is exceed

on the long journey, so it any one in this
vicinity is contemplating making such a

them, with a hope of making the trip
mutually enjoyable. Mr. Goode would
like to start between May 20 and June 1.
The "masheen" has through the medi
um of the morning mouthpiece, made the
liquor question the issue in the present
campaign. That should be made a mats
ter of business strictly with the council.
It is upon this issue that McConochie's
much-boasted proclivities as an "artful
dodger" can be best displayed, though
not without detection. McConocbie has
placed himself on both sides of the liquor
question already, and thereby earned his
Two of tbe appointments already
promised by McConocbie, in tbe event of
his election indeed, promised some time
ago, in order that he might receive tbe
