THE RIGHT MAN.
The meanicrat1 Candidate for City
Atterary Whom the People Will
Next in importance to the mayor to the
citizens of Rock Island is that of city tts
torney. rClty Attorney McEniry has been
nominated by tbe democrat for reeleo
. tlon to the office which he bu held for
the past two years. Mr. McEnirj'g past
record as city attorney speaks for itself.
He bat been present at every meeting of
the city council and has ever been ready
to answer any question that might be
asked of him. His ability as a lawyer is
evinced by the fact that during the
period of his office, when called upon for
legal information, be promptly answered
the questions, and never asked for time
to look them up. He is better acquainted
with citv affairs than a new man can be;
be drafted all tbe ordinances in relation
to progressive improvement and has been
an able adviser and worker with the im
provement association, and as a conse
quence is better qualified to carry out
plans for improve ment than a man who
has bad no experience in municipal laws.
When he assumed the office of city at
torney two years aro be found the city
engaged in eighteen law suits in courts
of record. Tbe city is now engaged m
but onethe Elakemore damage suit
from Moline, in which be claims $3,0 0
for an injnry caused to his shoulder by
being thrown out of a wagon. This suit
waa tried at the last January term, the
jury rendering a verdict for the plain
tiff of one dollar, which tbe court set
aside. A pood business man would not
dismiss bis lawyer wbom be had em
ployed to defend Lis case, until tbe final
termination of the same, especially if he
bad. been as huccts.ful as McEolry has
been in this one. He is familiar, by re a
on of the former trial, with all the facts
in the case. Tbe tax payers of the city
should consider this matter well when
they are casting their votes, and see that
McEniry's name is on their ticket.
His official acts have been such as to
command tho support of all parties. His
record stands out better as a competent
attorney than any of bis predecessors
Tbe city Las paid out only (150 during
the two years for associate council fees-
It is safe to aay that if be is reelected tbe
city will have no associate council fees to
pay, as be will be able to conduct the
affairs of tbe city without assistance.
In view of tbe fact that the city council
contemplates public improvements for
the city during tbe next two years, tbe
voters will bave made a great mistake if
tbey do not reelect City Attorney McEn
Tbe poor oi l broken down, wabbling
concern around on Eighteenth street, has
got 'em again. As usual its special spite
is against the Abocs, and it spits out its
bile at an amazing rate. It charges the
A Rous with dictating nominations and
bringing disaster to the party by its ill
advised schemes. Well, we wonder! The
Abgcs doesn't wish to boast of Its
achievements, past or present, but in res
gard to Its never supporting a successful
candidate, we would respectfully refer
tbe Eighteenth street wreck to Sheriff
Silvia and County Treasurer Schafer.
It reflects anything but credit
upon tbe Union as a political organ
to bave tbe democrats capture the two
most important offices in a county with a
boasted republican majority of 1,500.
And there was John M. Reticker who
was elected sheriff on the democratic
tic ticket in 1883, the late J. Z. Mott
mayor in If 83, and V. M. Blanding
mayor in 1887 besides a number of
minor offices. Tbe Abocs isn't egotis
tical enough to claim tbe bonor of elect
ing tbe gentlemen above referred to, but
it feels that it performed its fall duty, as
a party newspaper during their can
didacy, and it wasn't necessary to pro
vide the management with a load of
and. either. Fr a paper that displays
tbe pu-lllauimous spirit of tbe morning
beet, in all political and other matters,
its criticisms of the Argus are enough
to make a borse laugh.

A BUSINESS PROPOSITION.
Cm Oar afaamrartswera, Hertbaai
ut Tax Payer Alter f Tote for a
Xsa What Crtea Down the City.
Tbe question as to the election
or defeat of McConocbie may ba
narrow down to this business propo
sition: Can tbe man nfacturers,
merchants and tax payers of Rock
Island afford to take any ri ks on a
man who deliberately and twice in one
council session, and once at another, ridK
cules the representative men of the city,
and belittles and depreciates property in
Mr. McConoch!e's insult and alur upon
tbe Citizens' Improvement association is
one that merits resentment from every
mac in Rock Island who has the privi
lege of voting. This, to say nothing of
bis declaration (which was only
a sarcastic bit you know) that
the property below Twentieth street waa
not worth twenty. fire cents on
tbe dollar, and at tbe end of three years
will bave declined the remaining twenty
five per cent. If a city cannot be upheld
by its own citizens, especially its alder
men, where can it look for words of ap
preciation and encouragement?
The question for manufacturers, mer
chants and tax payers to consider should
be, 1b a man who takes no more pride in
bis city and bas no bibger estimation of
it than McConochie has. fit for mayor?

Gladstone Deliver mi Oration oil John
Bright to the Commons.
Loxoo.v, Marca 80. 'n the house of com
mons last rvea nj Gladstone delivered an
oration on the life aaJ services of John
Bright Mr. Brihfs lire, he said, had been
happy in a re uui kable decree, eveu to tbe
moment of bin departure. He had lived to
ee the triumph of almost every great cause
to which he had Secially devoted his heart
and rniud. He had established a special
claim to the admiration of those who had
otUerwi-e diffdieci with him by bis concur
rence with thorn inwin the prominent question
of the hour. Tb ugh he had separated him
self from the grett bulk of the Liberals on
tbe Irish question, there had never been a
word of disparagement o.i ei hor side. Mr.
Blight's vibw.i with regarj to the Crimean
war, be Gladstone had Ix-en unabla to agree
with, but he bad ever felt profoundly what
must hive hoen tie moral elevatiou of men
who bad all their lives been nurtured in tbe
teaip'e of popular apprnoal, yet who could at
a moment's not icr consent to part with the
whole of that fav ir they enjoyed and which
their opponents tr ight think the very breath
of their nos'.rjU.
Gladstone then prooeeded an.i concluded
"Anothar nrin instance of his career is
better kuown to ni? tliaa to any other person
present Everyb.d.v is aware that offioe bad
no attraction for him. But few can be
aware v hat extra efforts were required to
induce him to bee mie a servant of the crown.
In tbe crisis of lW, when tbe fate of tbe
Irish church bung in tbe balance, it was my
duty to propone to Mr. Bright that be be
come a minister. I never undertook so diffi
cult a task. Frou 11 o'clock at night until 1
o'clock in the rue ming we steadily debated
the subj'ft. It was only at tbe
hist moment that be found it
possible to set asiJe tbe repugnance
he felt at doing anything that mijjht In the
eyes of any one, ven of tbe more ignorant
class of his countrymen, appear to detract in
the slightest degre-t from that lofty independ
dence of character which I liave mentioned,
and which never throughout hi career was
held in doubt.
"Among other jfts Mr. Bright was de
lighted to be one if the chief guardians of
tbe purity of tbe English tongue. Hear,
bear. He knew how tbe character of tha
nation is associatii with its language. He
was enabled, as at Englishman profoundly
attached to his country, the tongue of the
people being to him almost an object of wor
ship, to preserve tae purity of the language
of Shakespeare an i Milton. Cheers. It was
a happy lot to unite so many attractive
qualities. If I had to dwell upon tbem alone
1 should present a riasrllng picture to the
world. It was a happier lot to teach moral
lessons by simplicity, eonavtency, unfailing
courage and constancy of life, thus present
ing a combination of qualities that carries us
to a higher atmosphere. Hear, bear.
"His sympathies were not strong only, but
active; not sympathies awaiting calls to be
made upon tbem, out sympathies of a man
Sesking objects upm which to bestow the in
estimable advantages of eloquence and cour
ag In Ireland, vhen support of tbe Irish
cavtse was rare; in India, when support of
tb4 native cause wis rarer still; in America,
at ifce time when Mr. Bright, foreseeing the
nlc mate issue of the great struggle of ISC 1,
toed as tbe representative of an exceedingly
small portion of tie educated community of
tbe country, although undoubtedly repre
senting a large part of tbe national sentiment
bear, bear in al these cases Mr. Bright
went far outside tte necessities of his calling.
Whatever touched him as a man of tbe great
Anglo-Saxon race, whatever touched bim as
a subject, obtained unasked his sincere, earn
est and enthusiast!; aid. Hear, hear.
"All causes havii g bis powerful advocacy
made a distinct advance in tbe estimation of
the world, and distinct progress toward tri
umphant success. Thus it has come about
that be is entitled to a higher eulogy than is
due to success. Of mere success, indeed, he
was a conspicuous example. In intellect ha
might claim a most distinguished place. But
his character lie deeper than intellect,
deeper than any thi ig that can be described
or that can be seen upon tbe surface.
"The supreme e ilogy that is hi due, is
that be elevated pulitioal life to the highest
point; to a loftier s -ndard than it had ever
reached. He .bequeathed to his country a
character that cant ot only be made a subject
tor admiration and gratitude, but and I do
not exaggerate wl.en I say it that can be
come an object of reverential contemplation.
In the encomiums that come from every
quarter there is not a note of disson
ance. I do not know of any states
man of my time 'who bad the happiness
of receiving, on rtmoval irom this passing
world, the bonor of approval at once so
enthusiastically, so universal and so un
broken. Hear, betir. Yet none could bet
ter dispense with tbs tributes of tbe moment,
because tbe triumplis of his life were tbe
triumphs recorded In tbe advance of his
country and of its people. His name is in
delibly written in t ie annals of time and on
tbe hearts of tbe great and over-spreading
race to which be belonged, whose wide ex
tension he rejoiced see, and whose power
and prominence le believed to be full of
promise and glory for the best interest of
Eulogistic speed ic were also made by
Smith, Harrington, Chamberlain and Justin
McCarthy. McCarthy said be heartily en
dorsed tbe noble s;eech of Gladstone. Hie
memory of Irish e ents carried bim back to
the time when Mr. Bright bad championed
the Irish can, and therefore be claimed the
the right ot Irelasi I to lay a wreath of im
mortal, upon that statesman's grave. .

London, March 80. The Very Rev. Gran
ville Bradley, dean of Westminster, has met
tbe suggestion that John Bright be interred
in Westminster Abbey with the regretful
statement that an act of parliament forbids
tbe interment in the abbey of any person not'
having received tbe rite of baptism in tbe

will be greatly deplored by many who In

afternoon, "held up" the officers and robbed
the paying teller of $21,000. The cashier
gives the following account of tbe robbery:
Thursday morning, just after the bank
opened a well dressed man with light mus
tache and complexion, and of medium height,
walked into the bank and asked Assistant
Cashier Ross Lewin where he could see Mr.
Merritt Moffatt, president of the bank.
Mr. Lewin informed him that he could
see Mr. Moffatt, who is also president of
the Denver and Rio Grande railroad, at the
president's office in the Chocseinan block.
Nothing more was seen or beard of the
stranger till yesterday morning about 10
o'clock, when be entered the railroad office
and asked to see Mr. Moffatt on important
business. He was admitted to Mr. Moffatt'
private room and briefly slated that he had
discovered a conspiracy whereby the First
National bank was to be robbed of a large
amount of inonoy. Mr. Moffatt told the
man that be was very busy at that moment,
but would be plea9pd to meet him at his pri
vate office in the bank at 1 o'clock. With
this the man Uft the building.
A few minutes after tbe hous appointed he
called at the bank and whs shown into the
president's office. While remaining stand
ing he inquired if the cashier, S. N. Wood,
was in and was told that be hb at lunch.
He then asked for a blank check for the pur
pose of showing how the robbary was to be
perpetrated. The check was handed to him.
He laid it ujn the desk in f.nt of Mr.
Moffatt and said:
"I will have to do this myself," and pulling
a large revolver from his coat placed it at
Mr. Moffatt 'a hend, tad in a dreidedly earn
est but uuexcited manner said:
"I want $21,000 and am soiiv to have it; I
have considered this matter and the chances
I am running and the consequences if I fail
and am arrostei. I am penniless and a des
perate man, and have been driven during
the past week to that point where I have
considered sui.-ide as fie only means of escape
from the poverty and misery in which I ex
Ut You have millions. I am determined
to have what I have asked for. If you make
a noise, cull a man or ring a bell I will blow
your brains out, and then Mow np tbe build
ing and mviiolf with this bottle of nitro
glycerine pulling a boltie from his pocket.
Now take your choice."
Mr. Moffatt started to arjii with tbe man,
but was stopped with the information that it
was useless, and that be bad but two minutes
to fill out tbe chock before him for $21,000 If
ne desired to live. 3!r. Moffatt, seeing no
alternative, tilled out tha rheok. and was
then ordered to take it to the paying teller
ana get it cashed. Mr. Moffatt left his office,
and the man behind him with the revolver
partially concealed undor his overcoat and
the muzzle almost against Mr. Moffatt's
back, marched the president behind the
counter and up to Paying Teller Keelev. with
the request that the check be immediately
cashed. They then remarched into Mr. Mof
fatt' office without attracting the attention
of the fifteen or twenty clerks who were busy
at work within t wo fent of where they
Af ter they had remained in the private office

Sir. Moffatt that they were wast in e time.
and that be had better step to the door and
motion tbe piyin? teller to come to him,
which he di.L Mr. Moffatt ordered Keeley
to bring the money into his office, and as
jweeiey lurnea nxgo awav the robber told
him he wanted twenty $1,000 bills and $1,
000 in gold. The money was brought in and
banded to the robber, who backed out of
tbe room door, raising bis bat as he reached
the curbstone. He then walked around the
corner and disappeared. The detectives
have as yet been unable to find any trace
ofjtbeman Mr. Moffatt is prostrated by
Tbe robber introduced himself as C. J.
Wells. Aftor the alarm wus civen a man
who had been seen walking rapidly from
the vicinity of the bank up buteeuth street
was lollowed to a room in the Hailock &
Howard block, where be was arrested with
two companions, but on seeing bim Mr.
Morxatt said that be was not the robber, and
it was soon learned that the prisoner was a
wan Known business man named Clark. He
and his companions were released.
A reward of $2,o00 has been offered by tbe

Up to 11 p. m. yesterday there had been no
developments in the case. The robber seems
to have disappeared aa if shallowed up by
the earth. Cashier Wood and Teller Keeley
can give no very clear description of tbe
man or of what occurred, as tbey saw
nocmng to pai ucularly attract then- atten

Washington Citt, March SO. la the
secret jtesion yesterday afternoon the nomi
nation of Murat Halstead to be minister to
Germany was debated for three hours. Tbe
Republican senators did most of the talking,
whieh was not of as interesting or exciting
nature as tbe debate of Thursday. Teller
made an attack on Halstead, quoting bis pub
lished letter against Geo. Grant written to
Secretary Chase during the war. Spooner
made a speech in defense of Halstead. The
debate was prolonged, apparently with a
view to delaying final action on the nomina
tion. The senate finally adjourned without
voting on the motion of Sherman to recon
sider the vote by which tbe nomination was
rejected. It is claimed by the friends of
Halstead that Blackburn, Walthall, Ransom,
and possibly Eustis will vote for the confirm
ation of the nomination when tbe time
