The committee retired for deliberation.
and in the mestime the report of the
committee on resolutions was heard the
following being the resolutions in full:
The democratic party of Rock Island
county, through its delegates in conven
tion assembled, heartily enaorse ine
d! at form of principles enunciated at the
Chicago convention, and the nomination
of Grover Cleveland and Adlai E. Ste
venson for president and vice-president.
The administration of G rover Cleveland
of th.i high office of president for four
years was wise, courageous, honest and
conservative, and his nomination for the
third time by the represeutetives of the
national democracy gives special force to
the reforms suggested in his official mes
sage and bis public utterances. We now
have an opportunity for the discussion
and determination by ballot of the issues
which the national platform and the can
didates suggest namely, reform of the
tariff and the maintenance and perpe
tuity of the doctrine of local self-government,
end we pledge our earnest and
united support to these principles.
We recognize the efforts of the popular
branch of the congress of the United
States to secure a reform of the tariff, and
we condemn the republican senate for its
failure to cansider measures passed by
the popular branch, particularly when
the people themselves had declared
against the high protection policy repre
sented by the McKinley bill, by an over
whelming majority in the election of 1890;
the failure of the republican
national administration and the republi
can senate to bow to the verdict of the
people at the polU is a denial of the
right of the popular sovereignty such as
was not contemplated by the founders of
the republican party and such as would
not be tolerated in any other civilized
country of the globe.
We are in thorough sympathy with
the multitude of honest toilers through,
out the land, and we observe with the
deepest solicitude the conflicts between
capital and labor, whicn mamrest mem
selves in the ever-increasing number and
stp of iockouts and strikes, the nat
u a. aa(l logical results of a high protec
t ve tar ff on imparts with free trade in
f jroign labor.
We endorse the actions of the
state convention recently held in Spring
field and all the candidates there named.
and pledge to that matchless leader and
profound jurist, John P. Altgeld and his
splendic associates our unswerving fealty
We heartily endorse the actions of
our congressman, Ben T. Cable, while in
congress, and being mindful of his true
fealty to nis party, his loyalty to bis
country and his district. V e urge upon
him to permit us once more to place his
name on our ticket as candidate for con
gress from this district, believing it his
duly, once more, to stand for the liberties
of his people, we call upon ine aeiepai.es
to the congressional convention to pre
sent his name
We also endorse the Hon. Geo. W.
Vinton's course, while member of the thir
ty seven h general assembly of this state,
and particularly his brave and courage
ous stand as member of the gallant 101,
who gaye us the fearless statesman. Gen.
John M. Palmer as our representative in
the United States senate.
We most emphatically declare
against state interferance with parentil
rights, and call particular attention to
that plank in the democratic slate plat
form which refers to the school question
and which we heartily endorse.
We hi-artily commend the efforts of
the young democracy of this county in
the formation of young men's democratic
clubs, believing that they can be made
the means of awakening unusual interest
in the canse of democracy and of pro
moling the success of the democratic
ticket, and that fit be made a special
effort on the part of the county commit
tee to render them all possible aid and
encouragement in their organizations and
of giving them prominence in the coming
After the report of the committee on
resolutions had been accepted it was de
cided to proceed at once to the nomina
tion of a candidate for state's attorney,
and on motion the chair appointed John
Sen all and James A. Johnston as tellers.
The name of M. J. McEniry of Moline
was presented by Frank Shrader of that
city. It was then moved that Mr. Mo
iCnirj's nomination be made by acclama
tion, and the motion carried unanimously.
The next business being the nomina
tion of a candidate for circuit clerk.
William McEniry, in a rousing speech.
presented the name of Peter Frey as the
convention's choice, and on motion his
nomination was made by acclamation.
The nominating of a candidate for the
office of county surveyor came next, and
as a suitable candidate had not been pre
sented, it was decided to leave that office
on the ticket vacant.
The next business being the placing in
nomination of a candidate for coroner,
William McEniry presented the name of
Winslow Howard of South Rock Island,
and Mr. Howard's nomination was made
SOME SPEECH MAKING
While the convention was waiting for
the senatorial delegates committee to re
port, V. M. Blanding was called upon
and made a brief talk in which he ex
pressed himself as heartily in favor of
work just finished by the convention, and
after commending the democracy for its
united and concerted action, he pre
dicted certain victory for the party in the
coming election. '
Hon. G. W. Vinton then made a few
brief remarks, in which he spoke in glow
ing terms of the candidates both na
tional and local that have been placed
in nomination by the democratic party,
and coincided in the preceding speaker's
views, that democratic victory this fall is
William McEniry also spoke briefly on
the issues of the day, and after reviewing
briefly the position of the two parlies
relative to the tariff, .etc., be ex
horted the democrats of the county to go
into the campaign with a vliu, and that
victory wonld crown its efforts.
M. J. McEniry was then loudly called
for, and after thanking the convention
for the honor bestowed upon him he
made a strong and enthusiastic speech,
which was heartily applauded. '
The committee to Eelect delegates to
the renatorial and congressional conven
tions then made its report the following
