Who Casapose tbe Democratic Aider
maale Ten ahip Tickets.
The universal satU faction which is ex
pressed everywhere in tbe city over the
democratic ticket is applicable alike to
every candidate on it. The same that is
true with reference to the candidates for
mayor, clerk, attorney, treasurer and
magistrate, is just Is much, so as regards
tbe nominees for aldermen.
In the First ward M. Buncher is the
candidate. He is a popular busneas man,
a leading democrat nod his election is a
In the Second war 1 David Ulam is the
nominee. He is a painter by trade and
is a man who would lake-pride in lending
his assistance to all measures looking to
upbuilding of his wa d and the city.
In the Third ward Daniel Corken is the
candidate. He has already given tbe city
two year of approved service, and it
waa in deference to the earnest wishes of
bis friends that ha aiscepted tbe nomina
lion this time.
In the Fourth warl Aid. Frank 111 will
be reelected. Mr. Ill's record in the
council is one that tbe entire city has felt
the benefit of. Beinj an extensive prop
erty bolder, be is f u ly capable of judg
ing of the interests of tax payers, and his
course has been wise and conservative.
In the Fifth ward John Pender ia the
candidate. He was horn and reared in
tbe Fifth ward, hta made his mark
through perseveranco and industry, hav
ing risen to a responi ible position in the
employ of tbe C , R. I & P. road, and
merits all the confidence that bis fellow
citizens of the Fifth ward propose to
place in him.
In the Sixth ward D. J. Sears is tbe
nominee and he will t the beginning of
the next municipal yoar, take the seat in
tbe council that bat been occupied by
Aid. McConocbie, retired. He ia an up
right, hard working citizen, being in the
employ or the Rock Island Lumber com
pany, is a public spirited citizen, and will
make a good aldermen.
. In tbe Seventh ward J. E. Larkin, the
grocer, ia tbe nominee. He has always
been identified with t be interests of the
democratic party and of the laboring peo
ple. He has many friends in the Seventh
ward, as all over tbe city, and his nomin
ation came lo response to popular de
mand. For Supervisor. Bt.silius Winter, who
is just closing his second term of faith
ful service in the city council, is the nom
inee, lie is a conservative and success
ful business man ani carries into bis
official life the satae principles that
characterize his business methods. His
election ia a certainty.
For assistant supervisors, the names
of John W Ruche, George Jones, John
F AicKibben and Valentine Dauber are
presented. All are p-ominent and long
time citizens of Rock Island, are ener
getic and upright business men who are
mindful of the requirements of those
who shall make the policy of tbe county
government, who rea'ize the importance
of a city like Rock Island being well rep
resented in such a body, and who, if
elected, as they mott certainly will be,
will zealously and fearlessly guard the
trusts placed In their hands.
For assessor, John Barge's nomination
was a spontaneous approval of the man
ner in which he has discharged the du
ties of that important office.
For collector, Peter Frey is the nomi
nee, and will be elected. All over the
city are heard expressions of approval of
bis nomination. He is not a political
office grabber, and bis candidacy comes
in deference to a wish that just such a
man as he is be chose n.
For justices of the peace, T. J. Medill,
Jr., and B. H. Kimball have been nomi
nated, and wiser choices could not have
been made.' Both gentlemen will, un
doubtedly, be elected.
For constables, Janes E. Reidy, John
Flanagan and John Spellman are the
nominees, and as there ara no republi
cans who care to run against them, their
election is practically conceded.
Tonight the whistling prima donna,
Mrs. Alice J. Shaw, and her highly
trained concert company appears at
Harper'a theatre. Tl.o New York Mail
and Ezprtu says of ter:
"In the concertvrocm, as in some uther
departments of effort, nothing succeeds
like success. This as illustrated last
evening at Chlckerim; Hall, when Mrs.
Alice J. Sbaw, who during tbe past sum
mer whistled her way into public favor
in London concert-rooms and London
drawing-rooms, madu her first appear
ance since her return from her triumphs
across the sea. Last reason Mrs. Shaw
appeared on the stage , comparatively un
known and unheralded, and met with but
moderate success, bu". last evening she
was greeted by a (Teat crowd of en
thusiastic listeners,- who applauded her
labial efforts with apaarent delight."
Next Monday nigbt the popular fa
vorites and originators of fun, the Gor
man Minstrel company, appear at Har
per's theatre. ' Tbe Hartford Courier
gives this recommendation:
The way the people poured into the
opera bouse last evecing must have ae-
lighted the managemsnt both ot the
house and of that excellent minstrel
organization. Tbe aadieneo was exceed
ingly large and it bad tbe pleasure of
witnessing one of tbe best minstrel shows
seen here for a long lime. It was not at
all like the old time minstrel performance,
tbe aged first part being entirely ex
cluded and a novel and far better one in
traduced representing tbe gathering of
all the coons at a seaside hotel. The
afterpiece was very t retty and far super
lor to tbe usual venerable productiona
wblch minstrels peretrato upon their
suffering audiences. Billy Lyons sue
ceeded in making about fifty per cent of
tbe audience believe 1 bat be was a blush
ing maiden although be baa been seen
here several time bulore. Throughout
tbe show tbe music as bright and pretty
and tbe costumes new and attracUve. It
was ft first class minstrel performance.

A NEW INDUSTRY.
A Ceafennee ef ttrpresntatlves of
tbe- Keek llaa Btallaie Ae.
A joint conference of committees from
the Rock Island Citizena' Improvement
association and the Business Men's asso
ciation of Molina, waa held In tbe rooms
of tbe Rock Island association in Har
per's theatre yesterday afternoon. There
were present Messrs C H Deere, J W
Good. S S Davia and J H Porter, of Mo
line, and Messrs. T B Davis. Phil
Mitchell. E . H Ouyer. W C Collins,
and Secretary T.J Medill, Jr., of the
Rook Island association. C. H. Deere
was elected chairman and E. H. Guyer,
secretary. The purpose of the confer
ence was to consider a project to locate
ft brick factory between the two
cltiea. Mr. H. T. Griffin, brick
manufacturer and contractor, of Gales
burg, had made a proposition look
ing to the formation of a company with
capital stock of (50,000, one-hair to be
called in, of which Mr.. G. would take
$10,000. paying half with tbe rest, his
other half to be considered earned and
paid for when he has made the factory
pay dividends amounting to forty per
cent on the money invested. The com
pany is to build a factory, 50 by 100 feet
and two stories high, with five kilns, at a
point between tbe two centers where a
barge can be landed, which shall employ
fifty men to begin with, and to manufac
ture sidewalk and paving brick, pressed
brick for buildings, and all products of
clay deemed from time to time desir
able. Mr. Griffin also said that if
the city councils of tbe cities of
Rock Island and Moliae will pass
ordinances adopting vitrified brick aa the
material to be used in all pavement or
dered built by special taxation and adopt
a plan of pavement extentions that will
require C 10,000 a year to be expended
for five years, he will personally take all
the stock in the factory that citizens have
not subscribed for at tbe end of two
weeks. All paving contracts must be let
to the lowest and best bidder.
Messrs. Phil Mitchell, T. B. Davis and
E. H. Guyer were appointed a sub-committee
to frame articles of incorpora
tion. The conference then adjonrned, sub
ject to a call of tbe chairman,. Mr.

Chairman Cavanaugh and the differ
ent candidates on the democratic ticket
met last night and supplied the two va
cancies on the democratic ticket, by the
selection of Messrs. Valentine Dauber
and J. F. McKibben for assistant ouper-visors-
These, like the other candidates,
are wise selections and tend to strength
en tbe entire ticket.

istrate Bennett this morning by Mrs.

The Union publishes a lot of bosh
about tbe republicans carrying every
ward in. the city. Tbey will do well If
tbey carry any. Tbe democrats are sure
of three with the chances largely in tBeir
favor in the other four. The next city
council will be democratic beyond a
doubt, and with a democratic mayor there
will be no friction between the presiding
officer and the aldermen .
The South Rock Island democrats are
making a red hot fight this spring to
carry the township. For the first time in
ten years they have placed a straight
democratic ticket in the field, and they
feel very confident of electing it. The
outlook is so Qubious for the republicans
that Supervisor Campbell says be will not
accept the nomination again, which ia a
pretty-sure indication that the republican
"goose is cooked."
The first experiment with outside
teams to haul the volunteer fire com
panies to fires did not result satisfactorily
yesterday. The Wlde-Awakes, tbe first
company to undertake this device, got
there swift enough, but one of the horses
fell and broke its leg and the city is likely
to be sued for its value $100. The city
will find it cheaper in all respects to
equip its own carts and inaugurate some
system for getting to fires.
While the Fourth ward is pretty even
ly divided, politically, the democrats
generally manage to elect their alderman,
simply by displaying greater wisdom
than their opponents in selecting can
didates. They will succeed again this
year, for the same reason . Two years
ago Frank 111 was elected by 60 majority,
and his record in the council shows that
his constituents did not err in their judg
ment. There is no question about his
re-election, but his majority should be a
