The democrats were not in it. That is
the slang ibraeeology of the 'situation as
far as jeeterda)' elecion is concerned,
and it is ibe proper way to - express it.
Democrats were not in it because for
some reason they did not wa-1 to be..
Flushed by the conquests of last fill they
became apparently indifferent this spring.
Not because they were not interested in
the outcome, but their victory last fall
was so tremendous tht it had evidently
created the impression that tbey culd
win by staying at home. This they dili
gently did wbile the republicans were out
in force. The republicans vers there
fore in it and the democrat were not.
That is the long and the ehoit 1 1 it. .
A few figures will clearly show how the
democratic vote fell off from that of last
fall. On the vote for university trustees
in Rock Island last fall Bryant, demount,
received 1463. while Mr. O.ilw.-iler e3
ter.lay received 1230. a discrepancy of
21G. On the other hand Neeley. repub
lican, last fall bad 1425 and yesterday
Mr. McConochie polled 1515, a giin of
90. The total vote on trustees including
the 10 prohibition votes last November,
a9 2,901, acd that yesterday 2.7C5, a
difference of 146. In ftaese comparisons
the university trustees are taken in order
to show the straight party vote as netrly
as possible. On county officers or con
gressman where there was more or less
scratching, the same criterion would not
The outcome of the contest at the
poll9, which was altogether qiiet and de
void of particular incident other than the
preponderance of republican votes
however, was as much .of a sur
prise to republicans f.s to democrats.
They had no idea of winning as tbey did
and when the extent of their victory be1-
come known, they grew hilarious. While
this was very strikingly true of all the
winning candidates, it wag particularly
observable as to some. When J. H. Cle
land, fjr instance, foutd that he was
really elected assssor at last, he invited
all bis friends over to the Mitchell &
Lynde building and 6et them up to arte
sian water. Other republican victors were
more or less demonstrative in their man
ner of expressing their joy. If the re
sult could have beea foreshadowed late
ia the afternoon, it is doubtful if tuero
would have been a am 5 republic in iu
Rock Island la3t night. In fact J. C.
Adams, th? aldermbn el cted in the Sev
enth ward, was told b? someone before
the polls closed, taat his prospects were
good and he ran hone breathless and
forgot all about voting at all.
Indeed it was a "famous victory" as
the Uoion states this morning as re
markable almost as Waterloo. But the
democrats are not cast dowD. They are
not disconsolate or without bop?. Their
defeat in this instance will serve as re
verses always have to them, ss a valuable
lesson and a year bence they will come up
smiling again with something like last
fall's victory which had sucb a demoral
zing oppressing effect on the philoso
phers of the local contingent of the g.

Bearded the Lion.
Forepaugh's traveling circus and men
agerie had bee-n ditched by a railroad
accident on a road in Tennessee5, and one
of the lions had escaped from his broken
cage- and sought chelter in a log cow pen
near at hand. Oar train was following
the cirens and had come to a stop, and
most of the passengers went forward to
lend the showman a helping hand. The
lion was the only animal which got away,
and the men were calling for nets and
ropes and volunteers, when a lanky,
angular native who hadn't had his hair
cut in a year, and who was riding a
mule even more homely than himself,
reached tho highway crossing and dis
mounted. "Who's a-lyingr he demanded as he
heard the men calling to each other.
"A lion has escaped replied one.
"Oh, thafs it? Whar's ho gone?"
"Hiding in that shed."
"Wall, why don't they git him out?"
"We are going to after a while."
"Seems like a good deal of fussing
over one lion. Lemme see what I kin do."
He -unbuckled the hitching strap from
bis bridle and coolly walked into the
barn, and half a minute later he came
out leading the beast and saying:
"Tried to ekeer me by growling and
showing his old, yaller teeth, bnt found
it wouldn't work. Here he is, and now
whar' do you want him?"
One of the showmen told me that ho
wouldn't have gone into the shed after
the beast if a reward of $1,000 had been
offered for so doing. The manager gave
the native a f 10 bill for his pluck, and as
the man mounted his mule to ride on he
took another look at the money and said:
"Shoo!. That wasn't nothing! Why,
I'd hey tackled the Gnyasticntus f ur half
that money, thonga they do say he's got
teeth a foot long!" Detroit Free Press.
