The executive committee of the demo
cratic state central committee htlJ aa in
teresting meeting at the Sherman house
Chicago last evening. Today's Chicago
Herald in speaking of various matters
which received the attention of the com
mittee in which among other things tbe
election of Gen. Palmer to tbe senate was
conceded on Ue first ballot, and of several
contests that were considered, it sits:
In the Rock Island case no action was
taken, but everything was left to tbe Rock
Island democrats themselves. They want
to fight. Backed up by legal opinion,
they have arrived at the conclusion that
W, C. Collins, tbe republican who was
elected to fill the seat, had no right to re
sign an office which be never beid and
thatGoyernor Fifer's call for a special
election to name his successor was illegal.
Tbe members of tbe executive committee
did not seem to care to fight for tbe dis
trict because they do not need it to assure
General Palmer's victory, and were rather
inclined to call off the Rock Islanders,
who are pushing the contest. But in this
tbey were not successful. J. W. Potter,
who attended the session on behalf of
John A. Wilson, the democratic candi
dale, said that Collins' legal disability is
not the only ground on which the contest
can be based. Ue claims that the re pub.
ucan.Daiiois which were used on election
day were not printed in accordance with
the provision or the general election law,
and that in consequence, the votes cast
for Collins ought not to have been count
ed. "Tbe spacing, " he explained, "was
not regular, and instead of using plain
type in the head they used the most fan
ciful type tbey could get in that county
i nayen t the least doubt but when tbe
election committee of tbe house tees a
copy of the ballot it will promptly say it
ougnt not to have been counted. ' Tbe
Rock Islanders will carry tbe contest into
the house, notwithstanding that Collins'
successor will be elected on Dec 30, and
will go to Springfield armed with a certi
ficate, which some people say will admit
him to a feat. Potter says that tbe
house will be asked to ignore tbia certifi
cate and seat Wilson, who, as tbe candi
date receiving tbe greatest number of
legal ballots in tbe regular contest, is en
titled to recognition.
After May 1. next all pews in Trinity
church will be free to all without reser
vation. At a recent meeting of the vestry,
this plan was determined upon and Sun
day the rector. Rev. R. F. Sweet, an.
nounced the new order U his people.
It met with entire approbation. The
idea is one that has been advocated by
Mr. Sweet during his pastorate and one
that in his experience elsewhere has ak
ways been attended by good results, as It
no doubt will be in Rock Island.
It has not for some time been the plan
at Trinity to rent seats; they have been
free for a long time and strangers have
always been welcome to all parts of tbe
church, but it has been tbe custom until
now to assign seats to regular parishioners.
This is to be done away with.
It has also been desided to distribute
throughout ,the church leaflets containing
the order of the service each Sunday.
