In i a column, "Voice of the People,"
the CI ioago Tribune of yesterday had the
appen led inquiry from Rock Island and
editor al answer:
Rock Island, III.. March 10 Editor
f the Tribune A Rock Island man an-
ounc;s himself an independent candi-
ate I r the office of township collector.
and si ys if elected he will give from the
fees o the office stioulated sums to the
iffertnt local institutions, viz: Y. M.
A., Induslilal Home association, and
St. Luke's hospital. The other aspirants
for th office claim his offer is in viola
tinn o the election laws of the state, and
deflated by him will contest the elec
on. Could the election be contested
and ileclared void on these grounds?
WouM the candidate be liable to prose
cution in making such an offer?
He can certainly be prosecuted under
the br bery section of the election law.
and it was held in a Michigan case that
e coi Id not hold the office !
An A in. i s representative saw a num
ber o: attorneys this morning, whose
opiak na were solicited with reference to
Mr. Nadler's candidacy and the Trib-
ne's opinion. The following are the re
Jud-e I. O. Wilkinson I can see nolh-

bribery in Mr. Nadler's case, nor any
thing illegal in any way about bis candi

candidacy that would interfere with his
right o hold the office if elected on the
trencth of his propositions. The pay

payin the actual expenses of the office
ot U excetd faOO, expend his income
lerivi d therefrom among certain public
nstitutions of the city. There is no ele

case to far as I can see. The obiects are
all wi rthy, and the offer a generous and
public spirited one; and the proposition
to aid them in the way proposed is a viola

never prosecuted, nor did any one raise
tbe question as to prosecuting him.
i liam Jackson The published offer
f Mr Nadler does not appear to me to
ne en braced in the offense of bribery in
legi-l sense. The principal feature of
that trime I understand to be an unlaw
ful hi t that is intended to influence the
ecu r personally or against him person
ily. The specific acts mentioned in the
asc is threats, withdrawing custom, en-
orcir g payment ot a debt, bringing
suits, etc.. leads me to this conclusion.
C L Walker- Under the old statute
here is no doubt about the violation of
aw, nit the new statute of '87 amends
he f( rmer law and places the guilt upon
lie ir dividual alone who gets something
or his vote, pnd does not hold the can-
idat , even if he does offer a bribe
nder this section there would be nolh-
ng il egal about Mr. Nadler's candidacy.
Howi ver, we are looking up further au
hority on the subject, and when it is ob-
aine I we wrl be ami to give a more in
telligent opinion. Tbe amendatory sec-
ou of the statutes is peculiar to say tbe
Win. McEniry I regard Mr. Nadler as
gentleman; as a man who would not
resor . to any attempt at bribing, but in
ns much as our laws are very strict on
that oint, I am inclined to think that the
Mich gan case holdsthe right doctrine.
Tbe offering of a portion of bis
salar.r, if elected, to other various organ -
zatii ns must have some weight with
mem ers of those organizations in the
casti ig or their votes yet 1 think Mr.
Nadler is in good faith, but the practice
is on ; that in my judgment should not be
E. E. rarmenter Well, let us see
wha a bribe is: Webster s dbtlnition is
that a britie "is a price, reward, gift or
avo bestowed on promises, with a view
o pervert trie judgment or to corrupt
the t onduct of a judge, witness or other
nersin." Now there is no intention to
corrupt anybody in this case. Therefore,
Idoi't believe it is any bribe. It is
simt ly the offer of a public-spirited citi
zen o assist improvements.
City Attorney J. L. Haas I don't see
how Mr Nadler's candidacy can be con
sideied as in the light of bribery. He
doef not offer inducements that will re
sult in his own personal advantage or
the personal advautage of others. He
simt lv stands as a public benefactor and
I don t think any charge of bribery is
app'icable to his case.
S'ates Attorney M. M. Sturgeon I
can see nothing tending to bribery in Mr.
Naolers proposition. In my opinion
thers would have to be something more in
tbe way of personal gam held out as an
indi cement to warrant a contest or inter
ference on the part of the law on tbe
streigtb of bribery.
Adair Pleasants I have not given the
sub ect any investigation, but I should
say offhanded that there is no bribery
abo it it, inasmuch as there is no direct or
par Icular profit to Ik bad as a result of
Mr. Nadler's success. There is nothing
in i' .

I nto Hlmselfa Bride.
There was a pretty little home wed
ding at the residence of Mr. Benjamin
Carlton, 407 Eleventh street at 7:30 last
evening. In the presence of a group of
relatives and intimate friends, Mr. Fred J .
Young and Miss Etta A Carlton plighted
their troths, and Rev. W. 8. Marquis
solemnized the ceremony which joined
them in life's most sacred bonds.
Hearty congratulations were exchanged
and a sumptuous and elaborate wed
ding feast followed. The happy
young couple received many hand
some and useful' giftsfrom apprecia
tive friends, including a marble clock,
a silver cake basket and a set
of silver knives, forks and spoons
from the employes of the Burlington
road in the three cities. 'I he house was
nicely decorated and the couple stood
beneath a superb floral horseshoe, from
which there were festoons of English
iyy. Mr. and Mrs. Young entered upon
the happy duties of housekeeping this
morning in their own house on First ave
nue between Eleventh and Twelfth
streets, which was purchased yesterday
by Mr. Young, of Wm. Adorns.
Mr. Young is the gentlemanly and effi
cient day dispatcher at the C , B. & Q ,
while his bride has been for several years
private secretary to Division Freight and
Passenger Agent Mack in the same build
ing and is one of Rock Island's most ac
complished young ladies. Mr. Mack put
it happily this morning when he said:
Mr. Young gave a "clearance order' to
all his responses, while his bride received
the 'dictations as usual without a clerical
error. 1 know both well, ami a more
deserving couple could not he found in
At the home of the bride's parents, Mr.
and Mrs. M. Mumma, in Coe township,
the wedding bells rang out merrily at
high noon yesterday and told of the un
ion for life of Mr. J. E. Cowley, of this
city, and Miss Julian K. Mumma, daugh
ter of the host and hostess. The young
couple came at once to Rock Island, and
today are tr hying their honeymoon.
The groom is one of the most accommo
dating clerks in May'- grocery, and the
bride one of the most admired young la
dies in the upper end of the county. Mr.
Cowley had prepared a house for his
bride on Third avenue, between Tenth
and Eleventh streets.

John Devine, Jr., a cripple, who is
obliged to use a crutch, (was roughly
accosted by a s tranger on Moline avenue
near Twenty fourth street aboutJ9:80 last
night, who seized him by the throat. Mr.
Devine has but one natural leg, but be
brought his substitute into good play and
dealt his assailant a blow fair in tbe face
with his crutch. Tbe cowardly rascal,
who boldly sought to take advantage of
the young man's infirmities and rob him,
fled. The police have a good description
of tbe scoundrel and hope to catch him.

Conductor Campbell's accommodation
freight having riming in and departed on
Cap's'" regular time.
The accident recurred at the upper
end of tbe switch at Mt. Carroll.
A fast freight going west ran into
an east-bound extra. The engineers
and firemen of both trains jumped,
and thereby paved their lives. The
engines were both badly wrecked.
Tbe cars of tbe east-bound train were
started back down grade by tbe shock
and saon acquired a speed of eighteen or
twenty miles an hour, and about forty
rods from the depot ran into a second
west bound train. Twenty-one cars and
three locomotives were completely
wrecked by tbe doub'e collision, and the
damage will amount to $60,000 or 9100,
000. The track was not cleared of the
wrecked cars until noon.
An Alley Mwitrh.
In Chicago tbe all-absorbing topic is
an alley "I," road. Ia Rock Island an
alley switch is being agitated, the scheme
of the projectors being to take steps look
ing to tbe extending of a railroad switch
through the alley behind First and Sec
ond avenues, from one of the different
roads coming into Rock Island from
Nineteenth street to Fifteenth. The
idea is to give some of our great ship
ping bouses facing on First and Second
avenue, and that of Fleming & Co
facing on Sixteenth street, a chance
to load and unload cars at their rear
doors and save hauling. The plan would
no doubt improve tbe facilities of many
of our wholesale houses, as well as some
of the retail establishments and manu
