Proeeecina? ef the

The regular annual love feast of the
faithful of Rock Island city and town
ship wag held at Turner hall last even
ing. Ia the preliminary skirmishing
Boss Wells busied himself, and hu fa
miliar whoop was frequently beard above
the din of confusion that pervaded the
hall. The boss has filled out consider
ably 'nce the last congregation of the
faithful, and notwithstanding that he
his had two sieges of the grip the past
winter, federal pap and pomposity
have from his physical appearance agreed
with bim quite excellently. When the
time came for calling the convention to
order Mr. G?o. E. Bailey very gracefully
escorted himself to the chair and excused
his previousness by saying that Chair
man Walker, who was at a euchre party,
and told him to do so. lie thereupon
nominated Prof. C. W. Foss for chair
man of the convention, and the conven
tion electel Mr. Foss. who firmly im
forined the convention that he simply
would not serve. Mr. Wra. Jackson was
then called upon to accept the honor, and
he consented. So far so good. E. II
Guyer was elected secretary. The chair
appointed a committee of one from each
ward on credentials and that com
mittee made its report as to who were
entitled to participate in the junbnree
Prof. Williamson moved that the pub
lished oruer of the business of the con
vention be changed and the collector be
fir H nominated. Mr. Geo. E. Bailey
ngaiot any such proceedings. State's
Attorney Sturgeon sustained the objec-
tion. The candidates for other offices
should not be involved in the nomination
for collector. The reason for such
change was not a forcible one in any
. B. F. Knox then moved as an amend
ment that the convention proceed in the
usual form. The chair declined to con
frider the amendment as it was saperflu
ous. Mr. Williamson attempted to with
draw his motion, but bis second?, Messrs
W. T. Cbannon and G. M. Loosley, de
clined to permit him to. A scene of con
fusion followed. A vote on the questio
dere;-.trd Mr. Williamsons proposition
overwhelmingly. Trof . Fots moved that
in ine presentation or candidates, no
speeches be allowed.
for supervisor were in order and Messrs.
Conrad Schneider and Martin Frick were
put up. A forma! ballot gave Schneider
28, Frick 25, out of a total of 53 votes
Schneider was declared the nominee and
he politely returned thanks for the favor.
When the convention entered upon its
ballot for assistant supervisors, Prof.
Fr 83 moved that four be voted for at
time and the four receiving the majority
of votes be the nominees. Wm. Levy,
Fred Ludolph, Martin Frick, John Sauer
man, Geo. Schneider and Steven 0 Con
nor were named. A ballot gave Levy
49; Ludolph, 46; Frick, 49; Sauerman. 38
Schneider, 18; O'Connor, 9. Messrs
Levy, Frick, Sauerman and Ludolph were
declared the victims, and then Mr.
Levy got up where everybody could
see him and made a speech thank
ing everybody for the great confidence
they had shown in him and declaring
that he would be elected if it cost him
his life. It was 'evidently an event in
Levy's somewhat momentous career, and
he appeared to have great difficulty in
proving himself equal to the task of the
hour. He paced the ball in full view of
the convention throughout the remainder
of the convention.
Mr. C. II. Hitter was nominated for as
sessor by acdamraation. and briefly
thanked the convention for the honor.
He was green on the subject of assess
ments, he confessed, but he would try to
do justice to all if elected.
THE TUG OF WAR BEGINS.
The business of nominating a candi
date for collector was announced, and
Messrs. Andrew Blade, Geo. H. Parsons,
John Evans, W. V. Stafford and Joshua
Hassclquist were placed before the con
vention. The first ballot gave Evans, 19;
Bladel, 11; Stafford, 4; Parsons, 7; Has
A secoFd ballot gave Evans 20; Bladel,
10; Stafford, 11; Parsons. 5; Hasscl
The third ballot gave Evans 20: Bla
del, 10; Stafford, 12; Parsons. 4; Hassel
The fourth ballot resulted- Evans, 20;
Bladel, 10, Stafford, 13; Parsons, 3;
It was evident that it was Evans
against the field, and prior to the taking
of this ballot the Haaaclquist men
roenced the series of swapping, which
eventually snatched the nomination
without the convention's consent. The
game worked was "you tickle me and I'll
tickle you." The Hasselquist men made
the first dicker with the Bladel men with
a few scattering, as the fifth ballot
showed: Evans, 20; Bladel. 15; Stafford,
13; Parsons, 5.
The sixth showed Hasselquist still on a
sucker hunt: Evans. 22; Bladel, 17;
Stafford, 11; Famous, 3.
On the seventh Hasselquist came back
with his own strength doubled: Evans.
22; Bladel, 4; Stafford, 11; Parsons, 2;
Hasselquist had failed to make his deal
with the Bladel men and he went out on
another sucker hunt and while thus en
gaged the eighth ballot came In: Evans
21, Bladel, 12; Stafford, 10; Parsons. 3.
HASSELQUIST SHOWS BIS HAND. .
Before the ninth ballot Hasselquist
made dickers with all the delegates; "you
give me a complimentary vote this time
and I'll give it back with interest next
time." Hasselquist made a great haul
this time aa the result of the ballot
showed: Evans, 20; Bladel, 2; Stafford,
4; Parsons, 3; Hasselquist, 24.
Some of the delegates got on to the
scheme being worked by the Hasselqnist
men, but they soon forgot it. The tenth j
ballot showed that Hasselqnist had with
drawn for more suckers: Evans, 22;
Bladel. 18; Stafford, 12; Parsons. 1.
On the eleventh there was no material
change; Hasselqnist being still dickering;
Evans, 23; Bladel. 17: Stafford, 12.
The twelfth found Hasselqnist still
fishing; Evans, 24; Bladel, 19; Stafford.
The thirteenth ballot was ditto: Evans.
22; Bladel, 19; Stafford, 11.
The fourteenth ballot showed no ma
terial change: Evans, 25; Bladel, 18;
The fifteenth gave Evans 24; Bladel,
11; Stafford. 17.
The sixteenth showed: Evans, 21;
Bladel. 3; Parsons, 5; Sufford, 2; Has
Uasselquist had shown his hand again.
but as he cut his strength down the next
lime preparatory to his final pu.l. and
set his nets agaia, the delegates were not
on to bis strategy. The seventeenth
gave: Evans, 20; Parsons, 7; Stafford.
24; Hasselquist, 2.
HASSELQCI9T MAKES A BIG HACL.
Hassclquist had given btafford last
enough to merit a "complimentary vo;e
and now was the time for it. especially as
he had arranged for a "few" from the
Bladel men on this ballot. His line was
readv to cast, and he threw it out. The
bail was caught and be mtde bis final
haul. His scheme had worked. He had
made suckers out of twenty-ven mem
bers of the convention, as the eighteenth
ballot showed: Evans, 22; Parsons, 1;
Bladel, 3; Hasselquist, 27.
Hasselquist was declared the nominee
and if the north pole had been moved
into the hall the atmosphere could not
have been made colder. Parson's stock
had fluctuated during the eveniog. but it
cut no figure, though the-e was not
a more anxious man on the floor than
Parsons himself and he watched his del
eeates like a cat would a mouse. But
the entire convention had been mide
party to a little confidence game and had
nominated the man it least expected to.
Hasselaulst crinned and then sallied
forth to carry the news to Augustana
Most of the delegates left the hall in 'lis
gust and indignation.
The few who remained took a ballot
for constabulary nominations, five names
being presented, and the rule being that
the three receiving the highest number of
votes be the nominees: L. V. Eckhart,
37; C. P. Hanson, 37; C. A. Martin. 3
Anthonv Richards. 18; Edward Leiber
Mai.C. W. Hawes was chosen chair
man of the city-township rommhtee and
the convention adjourned.
There were two breaks in the conven
tion, once when the fight in the ante
room occurred as one of the connecting
incidents and once when a Fifth ward
delegate lost ten cents and offered as
reward that the delegate who found
should treat the crowd. The delegates
all swarmed about like so many bees over
a sweet scented flower, but when they
saw that Hasselquist had put up the job
with the Fifth ward delegate and that no
money had been lost at all. they returned
to their seats and waited for the final bait
from the big man from the east end.
