The cpunty republican convention met
at the court bouse this afternoon at 1:45
o'clock to select delegates to the judicial
convention of the Tenth district to be
he d at Monmouth tomrrow. The con
vention was called to order by B C.
Keitor chairman of the county commit
tee, and Secretary Howard Wells read
the call. On motion Hon. H. A. Ains
worth, of Moline, was elected chairman,
anl M. B. Sweeney, of Rock Island sec
retary. A committee on "ciedentials was
elected, composed of Messrs. William
Jackson, W. J. Entriken, and G.
Bnwn. There being no accredited del
egates from the Fifth ward present.How
arc! Wells moved that Maj. J. M. Beards
ley und M. M. Sturgeon be seated as
delegates from that ward. Mr. Stur
geon informed the convention that he was
no, a resident of the Fifth ward and Maj
Berd9ley was permitted to represent the
ward. The convention wta not largely
J. C. Keator moved the appointment
of a committee of five to select delegates
to the Monmouth convention. W.
II. Gest offered as a substitute a reeolu
tioi providing for the selection of dele
gates by ballot of the convention afttr a
list had been selected of the names of
those proposed to the convention by dele
gates present. Mr. Gest also made a
speech in support of his resolution. Mr.
Ken tor defended his resolution. Charles
Searles spoke in behalf of Mr. Gest'd reso
lution. . D. Sweeney was opposed to
Mr. Gest's resolution. He had never
known of any complaints or injustice
dote by the usual method of selection of
the delegates by a committee. Judge
Wilkinson spoke in favor of Mr. Gest's
resolution as involving a principle to pre
vent any cut and dried methods and be
deprecated such proceedings. He had no
refit ctions to cast on the mover of the
motion or upern the chairman of the con
ven ion, but he was oppose 1 to the prin
ciple. &!sj. J. M, Beard aley sustained the
motion of Mr. Keator in a short speech,
and Mr. Gest's snbslitut being put was
lost, and the original motion of Mr.
Keator prevailed. The chair, therefore,
in accordance with its interests, appointed
as the nominating committee, B. C.
Keator, E. D. Sweeney, C. H. Deere,
Moms Rosenfield and W. J. Entrikio.
Mr. Deere expressed a willingness to re
tire as he thought there were too many
ftotn Moline, but Judge Wilkinson sug
ges'ed that the committee remain as
chosen, as it better "carried out the pro
gramme." fhe committee retired, and in its ab
sence Mr. Gest offered offered the follow
F.esolved, That this convection does
hereby endorse Hon. George W. Pies

nal on as one of the circuit judges at the
convention to be held at Monmouth to
F.esolved, Tnai iu view of the fact that
there will probubly be candidates for the
oth :r two places from four of the other
counties of the district, it is fair, just and
bee jming that the delegates from this
county should be unpledged and unbi
ased as to such o'.her candidates until the
yie'VB and wishes of the delega'es from
the different counties may be ascertained
and that thereupon our delegates u e

of Judge Pleasants, to do justice to the
oti jr counties and to subserve the pub
Is lived, Tnat it is the sense of this
convention that '.he people of this county
des re the services of Judge Pleasants
upon the circuit bench.
Mr, Gest spoke with much earnestness
in favor of his resoluion. He eulogized
Judge Pleasan's highly and held that the
deli gates from this county should go
fret, unbiased and unprejudiced, and
should not permit the interests of either
of the other candidates from Knox and
Warren to sway them in their loyalty to
3'iaj. J. M. Beardsley or posed Mr.
Gett's resolution with equal fervor and
while he spoke eloquently or Judge
Pie wants' ability as a jurist, he thought
the spirit of the resolution was an insu't
to the other judges. Smith and Glenn.
Judee Wilkinson held that the conven
tion was not called for the purpose of
eulogizing judges; it was to select judges
who were to be the people's servants.
He favored the resolution because the
convention should be just. The con
vention could not afford to be unjust, and
he made some rather pointed remarks
wh en were construed as a reflection on
one of the present judges of the circuit.
Charles Searle spoke in fayor of Mr.
Get t's resolution .
I',o8s Wells attempted to say something
funny, but the chair called him to order.
J I. M. Sturgeon held that the fight was
sin: pie against Judge Smith, whom he

ing. Mr. Sweeney moved that the
motion offered by Mr. Jackson be laid on
the table. The chair was unable to de
termine the result of the convention vote
and a vote by delegations was called
which resulted, 51 for to 15 against.
The question then recurred on the
original motion and Judge Wilkinson
moved that the report of the committee
be Uid on the table.
Chnrles Sesrle moved that the com
mittee he instructed to choose from the two
lists it committee to represeut the
county. The chair ruled that the mover
of the motion was out of order in amend
ing a motion to table, ard Judge Wilkin
son withdrew his motion when Mr. Searle
presented his motion attain. This brought
forth an animiiied discussion, at the con
clusion of which Mr Ssarle withdrew his
motion, and the report of the committee
The nature of the proceedings caused
no little surprise, and while both factions
were for Judge Pleasants, the opposition
of the controlling power tf the conven
tion and in which Judge Wilkinson and
Messrs Gest and Searle took so prominent
a part, was deoded'y hostile to the renom
inating of Judge Smith, and the bitterness
of feeling is belitved to go still further
back and still deeper than this.

In an imervi w with a Democrat re
porter Saturday concerning the annual
river carnival given at Davenport and its
brilliant success last J ear, Superinten.
dent Given, of the Roct Island road,
asked if Rock Island and Moline would
join Davenport this year in preparing for
the carnival, and then this conversation
The Democrat man cou'd not answer
this question, for the reason that no ex
pression has been heard from either of
"I should think they would," cons
tinued Mr. Given, "the affair could be
made so much grander, and then it would
look better for your neighbors on the
other side of the river to tike hold and
push, and not be satisfied merely with
playing the part of spectators. The
great crowds that come to see the fire
works mu9t help Rock Island quite as
much as Dayenport."
After last year's carnival The Argcs
urged that Rock Island join Davenport in
the next carnival.realizing that the beau
tiful spectacle was as much of a treat to
Rock Island as to Davenport, and in a
measure a benefit to Rick Island,
and there was a disposition among
our citizens to take part, but
any overtures that were made were met
with such coldness and, indifference and
with the inference that Rock Island was
meddling with a strictly Davenport af
fair, that all thoughts of a joint effort
were abandoned. Rock Island rejoices
in the beauty and success of Davenport's
autumnal festivities and would like to
share in them, but the city is rO'. desirous
of intruding i'self where it is not wanted.
It would be better for Rock Island to de
vise and carry out a unique demonstration
of iis own, at some time jus; before or
after Davenport's display, so that one
city will not conflict with the other, but
thit both may gain by people c lmiag to
the locality to witness both attractions.

An Employe erine City.
T. J. Reddig, the would-be superin
tended of the waterworks, made a state
ment in the Union last week in defense
Of his nnceremonious departure from bis
post of duty in 1883. that he was em
ployed by Mr. Cramer and not by the
city. The Union reiterates this assertion
again yesterday morning, saying:
The statement that they (meaning the
engineers) deserted the city is not true
for the reason that they were not in the
city's employ but in Mr. Cramer's, and
their time was tip with him.
Even if Mr. Reddig'g version of the
aee were correct, he was totally unjusti
fied in his action; but the contrary is
true. The records at the city clerk's
office show that Mr. Reddig was an em
ploye of the city for several years prior
to the time in q uestion, a fact which he
should be perfectly aware of.
But this is not the question at issue.
Whether in the employ of the city or not,
the objection raised to Mr. Reddig is that
in order to embarrass a new superintend
dent of the waterworks who wa polit
ically opposed to hill, he deliberately left
his pest without a worJ of explanation or
instruction to the new men. That Mr.
Kerr and his assistants kept tie machin
ery in motion r fleets their mechanical
skill, but does not relieve the blam? at
tached to Mr. R-ddig.
Be llonoiab.r. Mr. Way or.
Mayor McConocbie will be afforded
another opportunity tonight to show
whether he has the courace of Lis con
victions or not. He owes the council
men an apology which can only be pal
liated by fulfiiliig bis inferred pledges to
them. He gave tbtm to understand that
he would abide ty their wishes in the
matter of appointments. A majority
voted in favor of John A. Murria for
superintendent of the waterworks and
Dr. G. L. Eyster for commissioner of
health. He has violated both instruc
tions, although privately he says his ideas
harmonize with the aldeimen. Therefore
every alderman, republican as well as
dtmocrat. is perfectly jus-ifled in voting
"no" tonight or until such tione that the
mayor pleases to keep bis word.

W. C. Bianchard, a deaf mute em
ployed as a logman at one of the Lumber
company mills in attempting to alight
from C, R. I. & P. switch engine 89 in
charge of Engineer Vinton, on which he
was riding to work shortly before 6 o'clock
this morning, in some way missed his
footing and was struck by the tender of
the engine and knocktd unconscious. He
was brought to the armory where he whs
attended by Dr. Eyster.
It is impossible to determine ns yet
how serious the man's injuries will prove
as there are tears ot concussion of the
brain. The accident is the firs, forcible
