Tbe slate prepared by the republicans
yesterday, as announced in The Argus
of last evening and which was to have
carried at last night's convention at Tur
ner hall, was abandoned at the last mo
ment. It was the understanding that it
was to be" the order of the evening until
the delegates had assembled in the hall,
and it was dropped so late in the eve
ningthat the duty of informing the
chairman otherwise was neglected,
and he as a consequence made
& j number of excusable errors
tecuse of a lack of comprehension of
the departure from the programme which
had originally been submitted to him for
perusal. The Elate of the afternoon was
given up because of lack of nerve force
sufficient to carry it out, that was all, and
tbe mayor's office-holdiDg combination
sometime since arranged, was allowed to
carry the niht.
For half an hour before tbe convention
was called to order at Turner hall ltt
evening pandemonium reigned iu the hall.
Such tkirnvshins and button-holing and
eHr jerking was never seen in a convens
tion hall in Rock Island before. It seemed
as if it would be an utter impossibility
to recover order out of chaos, wben
Chairman Collins, of the republic
can city committee, mounted the rostrum
at 8 o'clock and clapped his hands for or
der. Then he descended to tbe floor and
rapped on the table. The spectators
were invited to retire to the back of the
hall and give the delegaes the seats. The
request was acquiesced in and Chairman
Collins read the call. William Jackson
was nominated for chairman and though
be expressed himself as preferring not to
serve, he was elected. He then took bis
msdicine without a word and F. C. Denk
man wai elected secretary. The chair
was instructed to appoint three tellers.
He pulled a little slip of piper out of his
pocket and read the names of Messrs.
John Huntoon, E. H. Ouyer and William

interrupted J. Alex Montgomery.
"Well, let it go now," was the chair

Mayor McConochk at once arose and
returned thanks for t le nomination. He
expressed his gratification at the honor
paid uim, and stated that while he had
endeavored to do his duty as an execu
tive be confessed there were times in hi3
administration when he did not know
whether he would be able to live in Rock
Island at the expiration of his term to
not. He paid a very nice compliment tb
Mr. Bchroeder and also to Mr. Ohlweilei;
the democratic nominee, and hoped there
would be no mui-slinging in the cam
then announced that while speech mak

barred, that did not exclude speeches ater
nominations were ma e. He thereupon
proceeded to eulogize the mayor and when
he had finnhed be asked for further
speeches, but none coming the conven
tion proceeded with its work.
Nominations for city altornev bein in
order, Fred Dtnkmann named 3. L. Haas
and he was delared the nominee by ac
clamation. JOSEPH HAAS ORATES.
A speech from tbe nominee was in
order and Mr. Haaa atated that he was
very much surprised at bis nomination
and that if any good had come of tbe last
administration it was due to the mayor.
He bad been tbe tool of tbe mayor and
had simply followed in the path be bad
led, and if elected would continue to do
The chair called for speeches from
David Uawea an E. E. Parmenter and
each in turn related his 'experience."
Nominations for city clerk were asked
for and J. F. Robinson named Robert
Koehler, and Ben DeGear placed in nom
ination Fred Krell. A formal ballot was
taken and resulted, Koehler 47. Krell 5.
"Gemlemtn what shall we do," sr.id the
r-hair, who hid evidently forgotten hi3
cue "Shall we take another formal bal
lot." A delegate mvie a motion that
Mr. Koehler be declated the nominee.
The motion carried and Koehler was
called upon for a speech. Koehler said
he felt like a man who had Lis heart in
his mouth atd was afraid he would get
hi9 foot in if he said anything. He had
prepared a Bpeech, but having seen bis
funeral notice :n The Annus he had
a)iindned it and forgotten it, and would
toeiefore ask someone to make it for
him. Chairman Jackson asked for
speeches and Maj. Beardsley made a little
speech in behalf of Koehler.
Nominations for city treasurer were
next in order and J. Alex. Montgomery
presented J. F. Robinson an i Charles
Fiebig named Pail. Mitchell. An inforo
al ballot was taken, which gaye lt)bin

tha absence of a motion another
ballot would be taken. Tae secre
tary read the ballot and then the chair
announced that "Mr. Robinson having

called to order and impressed with the
fact that Mr. Mitchell had been nomtaa

culty in realizing that the slate had again
been changed, but he announced the
result a shown.
Nominations for supervisors were
announced ia order, and .1. C. Adams
named F. M. Smnett, Peter Lose pre

MK. FRICK OETS FCJSNY.
Mr. Frick uad a little speech and
said some very funny things that made
the delegates lauh. He was profuse in
his self praise, of what he bad accom
plishtd as a supervisor and predicted
what be would do if reelected. In con
elusion be wantei to know if the conveno
tion realized what the McKinley bill had
done it bid given us 20 pounds of sugar
P. M. Sinnett expressed h'.a surprise at
being nominated. He bad no idea that he
was to be so honored, and in reply to
Mr. Frick he desired to say that the Mc
Kinley bill had not given us 20 pounds of
sugur for 11, but that Louis May bad
done it The convention in due season
recovered from this exchange of brilliant
political satire an 1 went on with its work.
The point having ben reached where
nominations for collector were in order,
tbe names of A. n. Hampton, W. H.
Munger. W. T. Sugden and John Evans
were presented. An informal ballot was
taken, which gave Hampton, 19; Munger
4; Sngden 12; Parscns. 3; Evaas. 13.
Eight formal ballots followed, during
which Charles Johnso j. George H. Par

tbe former after making the convention
weary, proposed that Mr. Sugden be nom
inated by acclamation. Mr. Hampton
was not a delegate, but tbat didn't make
any difference, and the convention
adopted bis motion.
The convention caught its breath and
then nominated J. II. CJeland for asses

ly endeavored to get a speech on this ac
