Monmouth, Aug. SI. Upon the eve
of the democratic congreBsonal couven
tioD. there is a state of uncertainty as to
whom the nominee will be. Notwith
standing the repeated refusals of Hon.
Ben T. Cable to accept a renomination,
there has been a decided disposition
throughout the entire district to cling to
the hope that he would finally consent
to the use of his name. Consequently no
other person uas been seriously consid
ered, and the the delegates on the ground
tonight although few in numbers, are di
verse in their opinions as to who would
make the most acceptable and strongest
candidate. The names of Hon. E. W.
Burst and ex-Sheriff Silvia of Rock Isl
and, Hon. G. W. Vinton of Moline,
Guv C. Scott of Aledo and Truman
Plantz of Warsaw have been fully dis
cussed, and it is probable that one of the
eentlemen mentioned will be nominated
by the convention, although the morrow
may deveiop some new timber. The as
sembled delegates express the utmost
c-r.fideDce in the successful election of
whoever is nominated, and assert that it
is the accepted lime for anybody with
congressional aspirations to step for
ward and assume the mantle of honor.

The new pump at the waterworks was
given a thorough test yesterday as stated
in The Akgus last evening. It was
started at 9:30 a; m.. and the test con
tinued until 9:10 lastnight. For the first
five hours ending at 2:30 p. m. it pumped
1.067.199.94 gallons of water. At this
rate the capacity in 24 hours would be
5.122,559 52 gallons, or considerable in
excess of the 5,000.000 gallons guaran
teed. The new pump is a model of
beauty, and has been fully described
previously in The Akgus.
It is said that with the new pump
water could be pumped direct
ly to the biuff, but as
it is thought the mains throughout the
city would no, stand the extra amount of
pressure it will probably not be tried.

Mr. Cable And His AorItr Knitted
For Their Urea: Campaign :Work;to
Be Cnrnlnrted From Chicago.
Congressman Cable and his colleagues.
in charge of the western branch head
quarters of the democratic national com
mittee yesterday secured their quarters in
Chicago, from which will be conducted
the campaign in the west on the part of
the national democracy. The Chicago
Herald of this morning says in connec
tion with the selection of the headquar
ters by Mr. Cable and his associates:
It was a tired little Congressman Ben
Cable that climbed into hi-t bed at the
Chicago club last night. But it was one
who was to sleep the sleep of a just man,
having the sweet consciousness of duty
well performed. He bad everything
ready for the opening of the western
branch of the democratic national head
quarters, and all that was needed to
crown his labors was the presence of Don
M. Dickinson and E C Wall. They
will be here this morning, and today the
new headquarters in the Unity building
ill be opened, and the work of redemp
tion begun in Illinois. Michigan, Wiscon
sin. Minnesota, Iowa and the far Dako-
tas. Mr. Cable has come on in advance
of the others to pre pi re the headquarters
which were to be located in his own state
because he was acquainted with Chicago.
And then he knew Dennis Hogan, the
mayor of Geneva. Mr. Catle selected
the whole banking floor of the Unity
building for the sub-commute
to live in while it manages
the western campaign, and he
has been since Sunday in furnishing it.
This was another department in which
Mr. Cable ws perfectly qualified to la
hor. He has a delicate and aesthetic
taste, and is probably te best dressed
man in the national committee.
Il was not until late last night, however,
that he had his work done, aud even this
morning some finishing touches will be
When Ben Cable went over to the
Unity building yesterday morning he
touni men and women piwing all over
the floors of hi big rooms hi had en
gaged wi:h scrub brushes in their hands.
He left them there and went over to the
state central comrailletc's hr-adquarters in
the Sherman house. "Buck" llinrichaen,
the democratic candidate tor secretary of
state, was there, and be was just the
man for Mr. Cable. Buck H'.nrichsen
knows more practical state politics, per
haps, than almost any other democrat in
Illinois. Mr. Cable immediately went into
conference with Mr. riirichsen about
the conditions in the state
In the afternoon the congressman and
Mayor Hogai:. who is on the state ex
ecutive committee, fcnd close to Mr. Ca
ble, went out to com plete the purchase of
furniture lor the headquarters. Mr. Hin
richsen went part way with them. The
headquarters in the Unity building, while
they have marble wainscoting and elec
tric lamps in brass filagree work, are to
be furnished simply. Mr. Cable had pur
chased matting for the broad floors, but
there remained desks and chairs to be ob
tained, which occupied the rest of the af
. The national headquarters in Chicago
wfll be a rendezvous for all the demo
crats in the west. The large room on the
first floor is being furnished as a general
reception room, and in it will be kept
files of the newspapers and a quantity of
tariff literature A register will be pro
vided for visitors. The other rooms will
be used by the force of clerks in prepir
ing material for the country newspapers.
