motion, named Messrs. Joseph Geiger,
Charles Durmann, Frank Blocklinger and
M. M. Britres as tellers.
Charles Wheelan presented the name of
John Oalweiler as a candidate for miyor
and moved his nomination by acclama
tion. John McDarrah suggested the
name of L. C. Blanding, but that srenile-
man expressed his thanks for the honor
and stated that he was in nowise, shape
or manner a candidate.
OHLWEILER FOR MAYOR.
The motion as to Mr. Obi-
weiler was then put and carried amid a
tumult of enthusiasm.
It was moved that a committee be dis
patched to escort Mr. Ohl weiler to the
hall, and the chair named Messrs. Gustav
Stengel, Peter Schlemmer and L. C.
Blandine to compose such committee.
OTHER STRONG NOMINATIONS.
Nominations for city clerk were next in
order and William Young named George
W. Henrv and John Larkin
Peter Fiey. The convention proceeded
to an informal ballot which gave Henry
31, Frey 34. blank 1. A formal ballot
followed, with the following result:
Henry 33, Frey 33. There being no
choice a second ballot was ordered with
tbe result ss follows: Henrv 34. FrerI32
Mr. Henry having received the majority
of all the votes cast he was declared the
nominee for city clerk and the nomina
tion was made unanimous.
The nomination of a candidate for citv
attorney having been announced, John
Looney s name was presented and he waB
declared the nominee by acclamation
amid great enthusiasm.
At this juncture the committee sent to
bring Mr. Ohlweiler to the hall appeared
with Mr. Ohlweiler under escort. Tbe con
vention rose to its feet and cheered lustily
as Mr. Ohlweiler approached the front of
tbe hall where he was introduced bv the
chairman as the next mayor of Rock Isl
In acknowledging the honor ehown
him, Mr. Ohlweiler Btated that the nomi
nation had come to him wholly unsolic
ited. That he had not considered him
self a candidate, bat now that he had been
chosen be believed it hia duty to accept
and to do all in hia power to be elected, i
It had been said of bim that he had ex
pressed himself for Mayor McConochie
for iee.ection. He had done nothing of
the kind. He believed that a democrat
could always ma'ie a better mayor than a
republican, but nevertheless he thought
that where a ma 3 endeavored to do his
duty party affiliation should not so warp
one's judgment as to preclude the possibil
ity of recognizing it. This was simply a
feeling of man toward man, and if be
should be elected mayor of Rock Island
and should endeavor as he proposed a
sach an event to do to do dis duty, be
hoped that when his administration was
brought to a clot e that no man, because
differing with him politically, would deny
him tbe satisfaction of knowing that he
tried to do his daty whether he had buci
ceeded or not.
There were calls for John Looney. tbe
nominee for city attorney, who said that
words were but poor thanks for such an
honor as had been cenferred upon him.
but until such tl se as he could place bis
appreciation of tbe favor in a more fitting
sense he hoped this feeble manner of ex
pression would be accepted. He gave
the convention bis assurance that he
would do all in bis power to be elected,
and if successful would aim that bis con
duct of the office would evidence his re
gard on the position as well as far the
interests of the city of Rock Island . He
spoke of the gloiious victory of last No
vember, and the gallant work of the 101
at Springfield an 1 the inspiration that the
democrats of Rook Island might receive
from each in tbe determined contest now
to be entered upon.
The next duty was tbe choice of a cans
didate for city treasurer and the names of
Ilenry F. Wfceekn, J. M. Buford and J.
R. Johnston were suggested. Messrs.
Wheelan and Johnston declined and Mr.
Bufcrd was nominated by acclamation.
THE lOXSHIP TICKET.
This completed the city ticket and as
candidates for supervisors, Messrs.
Arthur Burrall ar.d Fred Appelquist were
named by acclamation.
Nominations for township collector
were called for a ad Messrs. Ed. Burrill
Jr., William E:ierman an 3 Louis Ohl

Moline is weeping over the mysterious
disappearance of its celestial laundrjman.
Kof Lung. The Republican-Journal
describes the cause of Borrow:
Borne suspicious circumstances sur
round the removal of the Third avenue
laundry man from Moline. Several Ce lea
tials from R;ck Island and Davenport
came here and took him away in a closed
carriage. They claimed they were going
to take bim to Rock Island. A couple of
days later another Chinaman came to Mo
line and took away all the clothes and
everything of value ttat was in the sick
man s place of business. He appeared
much embarrassed when asked what bad
become of tbe Moline Chinaman, and re
plied : "He alle light: he gettee better."
What first aroused the suspicions of
Moline people regarding tbe removal of
the Chinaman, is tbe fact that the man
who took away his valuables the other
(lay was attired in the clothes worn by
Kof Lung, on tbe day of his removal from
Moline. He also carried his watch and
chain, and while in Moline . was very
nervous, and tried to avoid making any
allusion to tbe sick man, and generally
answered questions which were put to bim
by saying "Me not know.' He would
not make anv definite statement as to
where the patient bad been taken. At
first he said Kof Lung bad been carried
to Davenport, but later when asked as to
the sick man's whereabouts said tbat he
was in Chicago.
Those familiar with tbe cae are ap
prehensive that tbe sick man was fouily
dealt witb, and tbe truth of this hypothe
sis 13 seemingly confirmed by the fact
that be had amassed a considerable
amount of money while in business in
It is a well known fact that most of the
Chinamen in this country will stop at
nothing to further their ends from a finan
cial point of view. Inquiry fails to re
veal the whereabouts of Kof Lung. He
spoke good Eogli&h. and unlike most of
his race, was well thought of by those
deing business with him. It will be re
membered that a dead Celestial was found
in a coal shed in the rear of a laundry in
Davenport some time ago. He had been
allowed to die of starvation, and when the
heathens with whom be had resided were
asked why they had thrown the dead man
No wasbee, no wantee."
Tbe Chinaman was too ill to wash, and
they didn't want any dead weight on
their hands, so the poor wretch was left
by his countrymen to die of hunger in a
Impoitaat Real EM ate Deal.
