Whleh tke. Democratic I'ar y
May Well be fioad.
Tue demcracy of Rock Mand has not
entered upon a municipal campaign with
brighter hopes or prospects more well
ounaea man those which attend it this
spring. The ticket nominated by Mon
day night' convention combines all the
elements of Btrem?th and popularity, and
is gramying to observe with what snir
it of popular satisfaction it is received on
every.band, and by all people irrespec
wveoi party, it is hardly necessary to
f..ii . .
.vidian, present any or the nominee? to
the public, so well are they known, jet a
iew words concerning each candidate
will be read with interest, now thit they
have been placed in so prominent a light
Deiore the people.
For major, John Ohlweiler is the nom
inee. ue has been identified with Rock
Island' interests for over 20 years, ha
ing been not only one its foremost busi
ness men, but most public-spirited citi
zens. Since 1872 he has been the oonu
lar junior member of the bottling firm of
arse oc Oalweiler. and hU conservative
yeienicrpriaiog business methods have
won him the friendship and
good will of all who have
become acquainted with him. In 18S5the
citizens of the Second ward choee Mr.
Ohlweiler for alderman, and while the
ward had been previous to that time re
liably republican. Mr. Ohlweiler was
elected by a handsome maioritv. ihna
showing the high regard in which he is
held in the community where he has al
ways resided. His record as aldtrman
well sustained the confidence reposed in
him by his friends who are now anxious
to honor him with higher office of mayor,
as indeed they propose to do. That Mr.
Ohlweiler will give to Rock Island a wise
and business-like administration of public
affairs is conceded by all who know him,
for he will be governed by no elioue or
combine, but will be governed by a con-
tcientious regard for the best interests of
For city clerk the democratic partv has
been peculiarly fortunate in the selection
of George W. Henry, wno is well known
to the people of Rock Island as any man
lathe city. He was first elected alderman
for the First ward in 1S90. and when the
city wa9 redisiricted be was retained for
the Third ward, and held his seat for six
years. During his term of service he be
came a leader on the floor of the council
and at each expiration of his office was
retained by increased majorities. In the
summer of 1985 he was appointed deputy
internal revenue collector and be served
four years, being removed only for par
tisan reasons by President Harrison. His
record as collector proved one of tbe
most efficient and faithful that tbe dis
trict ever bad, the competency then dis
played will te carried into his conduct of
tbe office of city clerk. Mr. Heniy is
very popular with all, and his election is
a foregone conclusion.
For city attorney John Looney is the
nominee. He is one of tbe popular and
rising young members of the Rock Icland
county bar. For several years he was
tbe lo:al manager of the office of tbe
Western Union Telegraph company,
where be demonstrated his ability as a
business mas resigning a few months ago
to enter upon the pursuit of his chosen
profession. Already he has made a bril
liant record having conducted a number
of cases at tbe last term of court and
demonstrated his knowledge of tbe law
acd bis ability as an exponeat of tbe
same. That be will be elected does not
admit of doubt, and it is equally certain
that be will prove himself worthy cf tbe
confidence shown him.
J. M. Buford is tbe nominee for city
treasurer, which means that he will be
tlecttd. He was first elected to that
office in 1E64, and eerved for four years.
He was reelected in 1870, and again in
1872 serving until 187G. and in 1877 he
was again called into the office, Bsrving
until 1882. In 18S3 he was reelected and
served until 1885- He was mayor of the
city in 1869 and 1870. He is one of our
oldest and most highly esteemed citizens
and bia record 89 a public servant is tco
well known to require ttoldsof comment
here. The city is fortunate in tbe as
surance of having the advantage of his
further service in the office of city treas
urer. Plenty f Mweetaeiia.

Mextt n" Jokn.
Officer Sexton put up a successful
April fool's j ike on the members of the
night force at 5 o'clock this mornine.
While the patrolmen were sitting about
the stove waiting for dajlight to dawn
Stx'on slipped up siairs into ibe citv
clerk's office and disguising his vjice as
much ss possible informed Officer Hotter
who answred. that two suspicious look
iDg tramps, of whom he gave a description
had entered Dressen's saloon and stolen
a watch valued at $140. together with
some mocey and had just left the saloon.
Sexton heard Hetter tell his companions
the news and then banging up the phone
he flew to the window to see half a dozen
blue coals flying in all directions up town.
Then he telephoaed Marshal Miller tbe
same story.onlj he aid the men had gone
down the railroad tracks pursued by tbe
night force. "I'll bead them off" was the
assurance of ibe marshal and away
be flew for the lower saw mill.
A few minutes later Officer Mulqueen
telephoned from the npper part of town
and asked if anything new had occurred.
Sexton spun the same yarn to him, and
off went Mulqueen in the direction of Mo
line. He over-hauled three tramps and
searched them and then came down to
the station for permission to go to Moline
after two men he had seen early in the
morning and whom he was now satisfied
were tbe guilty paities. In the meantime
Marshal Miller had returned and Sexton
had told him of tbe joke. One by one
tbe night men telephoned to tbe station
from various parts of tbe city to know if
tbe robbers had been caught, aai each
was asked if be koew what day of the
month it was. There was no further
discussion over the wire, but before tbe
men went home they congregated and
swore eternal vengeance upon Dressen
who tbey thought had put up tbe joke.
They therefore went into his saloon.
Each ordered a ten cent cigar and light
ing it walked out. trlling the bewildered
bar keeper that the joke was now turned.
Later in the day explanations were made
and the nigbt men went home, but Mul
queen and Glass are said to be still
pursuit of tbe watch thieves.
Ex-County Clerk R. A. Donaldson too
day acquired an interest in tbe insurance
business of . W. Hurst, and tbe firm
will hereafter be known as Hurst & Don
aldson. Tbe new firm will occupy tbe
suite of rooms adjoining tbe present law
offices of Jackson & Gum and the af

Mr. Hurst having because of the
increasing law practice of Jackson &
Hurst, realized the necessity of abandon
ing the responsibilities attendant upon
the insurance business. George F.

one. combining tbe elements of experi
ence, ability and a knowledge of business
