The republican county convention to
select delegates to the state and congres
sional district conventions basbeen held.
Rock: Island was today the scene of
operations, and from the arrival of Hon.
Bill Cra a ford at the first peep of day,
and Sis' er Payne from the wilds of the
upper i?nd shortly after, until the gavel
fell for the last time on the motion to
adjourn at 8 o'clock this afternoon, all
was act en in the republican camp.- Mar
ion E. S weeney has been one of the most
conspicuous figures in the city in the
class of under-bosses. Be came out at I
daylight with his best suit of clothes on
and wore it all day. It was evidently a
momentous occasion for Marion, and
be invented in a shaye, a collar button
and a scarf supporter to remember it by.
Bobby Bennett, too, wore a serious coun
tenance. The late Mr, Wells was on
hand, but be appeared as one having
gone through a most trying erdeal. He
has aged perceptibly under the weight
of the incidents of the past few days.
It wts 11:30 o'clock when Chairman
Keator, of the republican county com
mittee, mounted the rostrum, and rapped
for order. The late Howard Wells -took
his seat ia front view of the convention,
but beii g somewhat more modest than is
his cus'om, he did not get to his feet
until H A Ainsworth, in accordance with
the duty assigned te him, moved that F.
Deakmann be elected chairman of
the cot venlion . The chairman called
attention to the fact that the readinf of
the call by the secretary should come in
first, anl Mr. Wells bad a chance to be
heard in the discharge of this part of the
proceedings. In the meantime Mr.
Ainswoith had gotten to the front of the
convention, and the part of the pro
gramme placing Mr. Denkmann in the
chair was neatly carried out. Mr.
Denkmnnn was too much overcome with
surpritt to make extended remarks and
cnlled fir nominations for secretary, and
W. F Eastman, of Moline, and Walter
Johnson, of Rock Island, were presented
by M. I). Sweeney and elected without
It wi ordered upon motion of Mr.
Ainsworth that Moline name one mem
ber of the committee on credential,
Rock IUnd one and the country district
one. L L. McCoy, of Moline. Robert
Bennett, of Rock Island, and Matthew
Robisoc, of Andalusia, were named as
W. J. Entrikin moved the appointment
of a (amaaittee on resolutions. Mr.
Ainsworth hurried to Mr. Entrikin's side
and whispered something in his ear, Mr.
Entriken then withdrew his motion wittt
M.E. Sweeney rose, warmed his hands
and me fed that all committees be ap
pointed before the dinner hour. The
motiou prevailed, though not without
slight manifestations of discontent from
Moline. Mr. Entrikin now saw his way
clear to force his previous motion, and he
moved the appointment of a committee
of nine on resolutions, three from Moline,
three frim Rock Island and three from the
country, and that all resolutions be refer
red to this committee without reading
Th-J motion prevailed.
R. A. Donaldson moved the appoint
ment or a committee of seven, on selection
of delegates to the state and district con
ventions, two to be from Rock Island,
two from Meline and thrte from the
country districts. The motion was car
Morr s Rosenfield offered a motion
that a committee of three be named on
permanent organization and the conven
tion accepted the idea, though subae
quent e rents proved it of no value, as a
matter of course.
The committee on credentials, through
Chairman Bennett, prompted by the late
Mr. Wt lis who had helped the committee
out, mide its report of delegates entitled
to seats In the convention, the townships
of Black Hawk. Canoe Creek, Coal Val
ley, Bo wling, Buffalo Prairie and Drury

port wis approved, but not nntil J. B.
Oakleal hud suggested that if the list be
published there be some changes made, as
some of the delegates would not recog
nize the names as read by the committee,
which included such names as "GuY
Gamble, "Jacob" Oakleaf," etc.
The motion did not result seriously,
but one by Capt.Benaett that the tempor
ary organization be declared the
which r.otion he put himself .was carried.
The committee on resolutions was then
named, it being composed of Mayor Mo
Conecbie, Charles . Han sgen and Prof.

The committee on resolutions made its
report through W. J. . Entrikin
who read them with all the elo
quence he could muster, stopping at in
tervals for applause, and they, upon
motion of Capt. Bennett, were adopted
by a rising vote:
Resolved by the republicans of Rock
Island county in convention assembled:'
First: v e pledge anew our fealty to
the republican party. For nearly 40
years it has been and still is the party of
the people, the narty of intelligence, in
tegrity, liberty, equality and progreesivt
nees. It came into life as a protest
against that greatest of human wrongs '
slavery. It made Abraham Lincoln the
greatest American president. It con
quered the most stupendous and most in
iquitous rebellion the world has eyer seen.
It restored peace. Its magniminity was
as great as its valor, and it forgave the
wroogdoer and restored him to urother
hocd. It recognized the bravery and
deserts of the despised negro, changed
him from a thing to a man, and clothed
him with that greatest garment the
robe of American citizenship. With but
one short break in mora tban 30 years, it
has wielded the powers of the govern
ment and always in the interest of the
people. It has maintained the dignity of
the country among the nations of the
earth. It has demanded and obtained re
spect for the American flag, the Ameri
can sailor and and the American citizen.'
It has furnished "an honest money
for an honest people, " and in
such volume as to meet the re
quirements of business. - Its revenue
policy has been such that American trade
and industries have been built up. The
American wage ' earner has been saved
from the poverty and degridation of the
old world and the ' necessary revenues of
our government have been largely paid
by the people of other countries. It has
improved our sea coast harbors, opened
up the navigation of our rivers, built ca
nals, curbed the rapacity of the railways,
shutout from our borders the criminal
and the vile, and given to every boy and
girl free of t xpense, the opportunity of
education. It is the living body of human
progress. The worthy political fruit of
the first 4(H) years of American civiliza
It has yet a work to do. It has yet to
fight the free trade demands of poverty
stricken Europe and the democratic
party. It has yet to fight for the labor
interests of this coantry. It hss still to
insist upon honest money, and above all
else it must secure to every voter, south
as well as north, the right to cast a ballot,
free from threat." force aud violence, free
from the lash; the rope and the shot-gun.
Second.. We most heartily endorse the
administration of President Harrisson.
It has been able, clean, courageous and
positive. ' Be is a worthy successor of
Washington, Lincoln and Grant. He is
an honest American, and since our' own
distinguished citizen. Senator Cullom, has
declined to be a candidate for nomina
tion, we most emphatically declare in
favor of the renomination of President
Harrison. . .
Third. We alsa heartily endorse the
administration of Governor Fifer. It hes
been upright, fearless and positive.'
Fourth. We endorse the labors of our
representatives of this senatorial district,
all of whom are worthy exponents of the
policy of the republican party to be ever
true to the greatest material interest of
this coun'rj that of agriculture.
Resolved. That this convention tender
uanKs.to the Hon. W. t. Gest for his
able services in congress, and express its
" gn appreciation or their value. He

Resolved. That the Eleventh congress

revulsion which swept over the country
in the campaign of 1890. and that it ia th
sentiment of this convention that the re-
pnnuean district convention should nomi
nate a candidate for
interests of this district and its people at
heart, and has the will to devote his time

Resolved hv the
Island county in convention assembled:
We are in favor of a repeal or a revis
ion or the school law in such form that
while education of the children of the
state shall be made compulsory, yet the
right of the parent to determine whether
bis child shall be educated in the
public school or some other, shall not be
