The Fifth ward democrats held their
caucuslsst night pursuant to call, Mr. J.
W. Cavsnaugh being elected chairman,
and Mr. J. E. Reldy.secretary. The alder
manic situation was thoroughly discussed,
and it was finally decided to postpone
formal action relative to the choice of an
alderman ic nominee until Monday even
Mr. Daniel Daly presented the follow-
ing resolution, which was adopted:
WnERiAs. The democrats of the Fifth
ward of The citv of Rock Island, are in

Adjournment was then taken to Mon
day ever ing.
But th s was not all the politics that
is sgita ing the Fifth ward. Off in
some secluded spot, unknown to all save
those actually participating, a number of
republics n patriots assembled as a couns
of war Thursday night. They reviewed
the situation, and regarded them
selves as victims of an out
rageous proceeding at the hands
of the previous republican caucus
in that ward, declaring that they were
then anil there handicapped as to their
preferences, and they thereupon resolved
upon an independent movement and a
determination to sweep the ward of
many complicated complexions on elec
tion day. They nominated August
Schocssel, who received 26 votes to 67 for
Evans i 1 the previous caucus and ap
pointed a committee to see to having his
name printed on both republican and
democratic tickets and to make a genuine
'still bunt" on election day.
Mr. tchoessel was seen this afternoon
and declared himself an independent

Cona-rrNHtnan Mason fr'avor Kork

nrr. The Chicago Tribune of today has a
Washington dispatch to the effect that
Represi ntative Mason, of JIMnois, report
ed faV'trablv vesterdav from the house
commerce committee, the bill providing
that Hick Island shall be a port of entry
in the collection district of New Orleans,
and tUut there shall be appointed a sur
veyor of customs to be located there
whone compensation shall be $600 a year
and tie usual fees. The original bill
provid id that the surveyor should be paid
1,300 a year.
In the United States senate yesterday,
Senate r Farwell introduced a bill provid
ing for a $100,000 government building
at Rock Island. This is very considerate
in Senator Farwell, and Rock Island will
thsnk him for his good intentions, but
for all the difference there ia between the
house bill and his, the Anocs believes it
will fere better if it stands firmly by the
house bill. It has been further advanced
than Senator Far well's bill and coruplica
tions will he avoided by simply sticking
to it find following it up until it becomes
a law Substitutes sometimes are ruin
ons tr important projects.
Indications point to the election of the
entire democratic township ticket next
Tuesday. It is by long odds the best
ticket of the two, and every democrat
should tbke pride in voting it "straight."
The republicans concede the election of
majoity of the democratic supervisors,
but there is no reason why the four as
sistatits shouldn't follow Honest John
Aster to victory. It will be surprising if
John Barge is not reelected assessor ty
an increased majority, and the election of
Davl 1 Fitzgerald for collector is a fore
gone conclusion. The three candidates
for c instable are also sure of success if a
proper effort is made for them.
Know What They Want.
Tl e Congregational church at DeWitt,
Iowe , whose pulpit was recently vacated
by the resignation of Rev. F. H. York. to
accept the pastorate of the Unitarian
church at Moline, has issued the follow
ing remarkable notice:
W anted By the Congregational
chutcb of DeWitt, Iowa, a first-class
preacher. He must be a progressive
thinker. He must be forward in advanced
thought; he must have the highest ideal
of spiritual life; he must understand of
his own knowledge the way which leads
to Uod's spiritual kingdom tJd eternal
life. No old school Calvanist need ap
ply. The little church wants an original
thk ker and nothing else will salt.

A NEW ENTERPRISE.
BeiJ. Arnheim Merchant Tailor.
Mr. Mycr Loeb, proprietor of the Gol
den Eagle, has accepted the Rock Island
agency of the live house, which has es
Ublishments in Chicago, St. Louis, Kan
sas City and Cincinnati. Mr. Arnheim
has the reputation of doing the largest
and most extensive merchant tailoring
business done in the United States.
Mr. Loeb has over 300 samples of the
finest as well as the cheapest fabrics in
this line and can make clothing to order
at a very slight advance on what the
same goods would cost ready made.
For example, he will make nice alN
wool pants to order, any style, guarantee
a perfect fit, at $1.75, $5, $5 50. $5 up to
$11; suits from $20 to $00. Terms:
One -fourth deposit, and balance cash on
deliverv of goods. Call and examine be
fore leaving your order. Remember, do
not confound this with the clothing de
partment of a ready made clothing firm,
but bear in mind, that Arnheim, the tail

The South Rock Island democratic
caucus was held at the Centre school
house last night. Vf. C. Maucker was
chairman and Geo. Richmond secretary.
After proper deliberation, the following
excellent ticket was placed in the field:
For supervisor, Geo. Laraont; for town
clerk, M. G. Field: for assessor. Cvrus
Valentine; for collector, Geo. Bolling
er; tor assessor, Wm. Hoffer; for ius-
tice of the peace, John Young; for con
stable, Wm. Nepka. The nominations
are eminently wise all the way through.
Capt. Lamont will distance the Daven
port business man who is his opponent
and the rest of the ticket will lie close on
he ht,els of the leader.
The republicans of Moline had their
township convention last night and re
nominated R. A. Smith for supervisor,
and L. F. Cralle and Gust. Ford for as
sistants. It took twenty two ballots to
decide the collector, when Timothy Gil-
more was nominated. For assessor C.
C. Waters was nominated. Kr-Ald. L.
F. Kerns was nominated for police mag

Some river men express the opinion
that there will be more water this season..
The snow has all disappeared at the
north, and the river has taken several
four and five inch drops recently at this
point, but at same places above it has
showed contrary symptoms. It is fer
vently hoped that the unparalleled low
water mark of the last season will not be
seen again, and if one extreme follows
upon the heels of another, the coming
season should be a good one for naviga
tion. The benefits of the river are fairly
illustrated in the action of the railroads,
who are already 'lowering their rates
along the river points . The S3 -cent rate
made by the Burlingtoa recently Iron;

fore known in this connection, and was
evidently made before navigation opened
