Talk of the Municipal Election
A Ktpablltaa OAf e Hol4laS CtakUi

As each successive day draws nearer the
time for the conventions which are to
nominate candidates for city offlaes, the
discussion becomes more animated as to
possible and probable nominees. Thus
far the republican side has commanded
most of the attention, owing to the com
bination which has been formed by May,
or McConochie, City Clerk Kaehler and
City Attorney Ilaaa to defeat the inde
pendent movement led by Aid Sohroeder.
The fight is an interesting one, as it is
the fiercest in the Sixth ward, where the
mayor and Aid. Sihroeder reside and
the . friends of both claim the
party majority in the ward.
All over the city republicans had looked
for a change at the city building this
spring and many who had for years fond
ly nourished the ambition to receive the
nomination biennially accorded to Koeh!er
are to be disappointed if the combination
wins as a'so are those aspiring legal lum
inares who talked their throats hoarse last
fall for Gest in order to have their valor
recognized in the nomination for city at
torney this spring. The encouragement
they received wit the fall of Haas as a
a campaign manager has been cruelly
shattered by the McConochie-Koehler-Ilaas
combination. It was supposed that
after Mr. Haas' lamentable failure last
fall that he was out of politics, and he
frankly confessed that he was through
with politics. But since those sorrowful
Uvs, Mr. Haas has experienced a wonder
ful change of front. The major has
been exerting his cunning tactics over
him and has won him to his standard.
The mayor wa9 shrewd enough to know
that wi.h Mr. Sjhoetbr as a candidate for
the nomination something must be done
to split the German vote and be thereror
conceived the idea of getting Koehler and
Haas into league wiUi him. He had no
difficulty whatever in bringing Eoehler
around of course and he soon persuaded
Haas. thn9 leaving Schoeder against the
field, and this is the situation today.
So far democrats have given themselves
no uneasiness as to nominations, being
fully satisfied that when the time comes,
Ihe parly in its present solidifisd condi
tion will have no trouble in putting to
flight which ever faction of the party now
in control of municipal affairs shall win
In the convention. The democracy has
abundance of excellent material, however.
Messrs. John Ohlweiler, Fred Eass, Gus
tav Stengel, Daniel Cor ken, J. M. Buford
and J. W. Welch, having been frequently
mentioned as available candidates. For
attorney Wm. McEoiry and John Inoney
are spoken of and for clerk Geo. W. Henry
and T. J. MsdiU. Jr. As to co'.lector the
members of neither party have expressed
themselves. A. H. Hampton has already
announced hinmlf as a candidate, but
that does not bother other republican ass
pirants who are willing that be should
have the field until the time comes, when
there will be no trouble in knocking him
out of the nomination.
The Latent Fa1.
Progressive ghost parties are the latest
society fad, and it is played something
like this: You invite a party of friends
to your house, both ladieB aad gentlemen.
The guests change partners for supper by
the matching of fine? paper caps. Af
ter supper the gentlemen are invited up
stairs to await developments. When
they are again called to the parlors, a
treat surprise is in store fur them, for
during their absence the ladies have
donned cambric masques and sheets, and
and look more like ghosts than the fair
iadies who had just partaken of supper
with them. Each lady is labeled with a
number, and beside each lady is a vacant
chair, which is to be occupied by a gen
tleman, who is allowed a two minutes'
conversation with his ghost-like partner,
and in that two minutes conversation te
is to make a guess as to who bis partner
is, and write her name and number on a
slip of paper, and then he is to move on
to the next lady until the circle of the
room is completed. The gentlemen who
guesses the largest number of names cor
rectly is awarded the head prize, while
the gentleman who guesses the least num
ber gets the foot prize. This kind of a
performance creates no end of merriment
and if the ladies are careful in the r dis
guises and change their voices, they can't
be recognized by their own husbands.

RockIslakd, Feb. 2(5 Editor Ahgus
Yesterday afternoon in one of the sa
loons of the city, Wm. Glass, the police
man, while slightly under the influence c f
tangle-foot got into a controversy with a
boy about 15 years of age and wanted to
bet the young man $5 that he had a son
that could whip him, and telling the
young man that he need not be afraid tf
being arrested, as he would see that it
was all right, and if he was arrested
would pay bis fine. The young man had
the sand, however, to tell the drunken
policeman that he could whip him or his
boy, and from these words both came
together, the boy getting the best of the
policeman and taking bis club away from
him. Last evening he was in another
saloon offering to back his dog against
any other man's dog in the city of Rock
What a model policeman this man
Glass is! And bow many more like him
has the mayor of Rock Island on his list
waiting for positions? This man was
recommended by Aid. Kennedy and I
think the people would like to see a few
more peace disturbers like this one wear
ing brass buttons. J. Camp.
Wonder if the mayor will show the
same eagerness in investigating the above

Col. J M. Whittemor's leave of ab
sence from Rick Island arsenal, granted
by the war depaitm;nt, as heretofore
chronicled in The Argus, will not be of
a temporary nature. Col. Whittercore's
leave from lbs army is for a year, but he
had to completely reti;n his com mind at
Rock Island arseual before hU ap
plication or leave from the
army was granted by the ordnance
department. In view of tbe fact that
Col W hittemcTe's vac io n contemplates
a year's absence it is gratifying to know
that this requirement has been made, as
the interests end importance of a post
like Rock Island arsenal require the
constant attention and presence f a
commandant in tbe execution of a settled
policy. Tbe absence of Col. Whitte
more, there fo-e, will not work a detriment
to the arsenal such as it would if aa offi
cer were only in command temporarily
and without tbe pi Me in the work that a
permanent commandant has. Who will
be Col. Whittcmore's successor is un
known, but there is no doubt that Gsn.

well provided for. iUj Bha!er and Maj.

The largest crowd that has assembled
any night so far during tbe fair was pres

selections given by D. Roy Bowlby
which included a particularly fine coro t
solo-and the exhibition given by the RtX k
Island Athletic club. This opened with
horizontal bar work by Lancaster, U 1

M. C. Moore, of Davenport, after which
Yicks rum brothers and Webber did
their brother act and were followed by
Late Lancaster in his exhibition of clai
swinging, after which tbe performance
was closed by Lancaster, Utlmeyer and

merited the applause it received. To
morrow evening another very interesting
feature will take place, D. Roy Bowlby
having consented to give another con

talent of the three cities will take part,
including Mrs. Smith, the blind soprano,
