The Contest for the Republican
FRESH C0MPLICATI0KS NOW ARISE.

Saying Nothing, but ia Quietly I ut None
the Less Energetically Sawing Wood.
Tbe republican mayoralty coatest is
growitg interesting. The announcement
of candidates in tbe A Rous tbe other
evening seems to have been all taat was
necessary to s;ir things up. Until that
time the field for nomination seamed to
be in undisputed possession of tho mayor
and Atd. Sbroeder. Though neither had
formally announced bis candidacy, both
were in the hands of their friends Sine
then Schroedcr has modestly acknowl
edged his aspirations the mayor has not.
but he has no desire to sh'rk the respon
sibility of tucceedinj Liraself, provided
his friends are wil ing. Oa the ontrary
be is letting no opportunity to slip by un
hee Jed to ay a good word for it e pres
ent incumbeai. lie is quietly, but no less
energetically, sawing wond.
But the mayor and Scbrot dor i.re not
the only candidates who ae in the field
for nomination today. Fresh ccm plica
tions have arisen that are annoyiag and
embarrassing to both. This intt resting
situation is brought about by the formal
declaration by Aid. William Kent edy of
his candidacy. Kennedy has tad the
mayoralty bee In his bonnet for some
time, but he has never said a worl until
now. But Kennedy u silent no longer.
He is a candidate and he don't care who
Had An All-Day Session.
That tbe candidacy of the B x h ward
alderman is significant would require no
further proof than tbe anxie'y it is giv
ing the major and Aid. Sjhroeder. Both
are desparett ly determined to get him off
tbe track. Ia fart Kennedy's colleague
in the council spent a whole day with
him in a Secoud avenue business plxce.
during which S.hroedtr worked t mil the
perspiration stood out on his forehead.
and froze in bis effort to get Kennedy to
reconsider bis position wi'.h reference to
tbe mayoralty nomination, and brufl
stated, to get out of the way. Kennedy
refused, however, and Schroder went
heme heartsick. The contest is prolific
of new developments almost daily.
Tbe Giletburg Mail tells tbe following
s'ory, which is of local interest:
It seems that the woman Jennie Dean
who came here fr m Rock Island, and
who was am sted. bMng charged with
robbing a Swede man of $40, has a bad
record When she came to ibis city three
weeks ago she called on the police and
said (-he was looking for a man tnat she
wanted to have arrested fot breich of
promise. So far as known she never
found the man, but has put in the greater
pirt of her time since in banging around
saloons and "doing up" any unsuspecMng
man that might come ter way. It is saiii
that she was in one of tbe Mikado rooms
back of the Prairie s reet suloon tl e oth
er day when a certain Galesbarger and a
friend fri m Davenport came in . Tbe
Davenport man bad a large rail of coney,
and in displnylng it tbe gay Jennie got a
glirrpse of it She did not know
that tbe Galesburg and Daven
port men were friends, and so proposed
to 'he former that they "roll" the Dav
enport man for his mocey. She sail
sh bad a simple scheme that would
work 'o perfection. She would fo out
to a drug store atd get five cents worth
of tome kind f a drug and that this
would be put in a glass of beer and
given to tbe man. She would than do
the rest and wouli divide tbe cash with
the Ga!esburker. The latter Jii not
take kindly to the heme and berated
Jennie in loud terms for wanting to do
up his friend She then said she was
fooling, and offered to set up the c'gars.
It seems that this fac: came to the know
ledge of the authorities yesterday and
tbey proposed to brine up the mac who
runs the saloon and tbe Galeburg roan
as witcesses in tbe case against tbe
woman, lu'. when they wcit for the wit
nesses the saloonkeeper jumped into bis
cutter and made up one of the back
streets, while tbe GalesburgL-r tock leg
bail up Prairie s'reet.

William J. Gamble,
The Manhattan Exhibition. f
A large number of the sporting fratern
ity gathered at the Manhattan club rooms
on Saturday night and witnessed a num
ber of interesting athletic events. The
first was a bout between Sam Brown, of
Davenport, anil H. Carter, of Dixon, 111.
Carter won tbe first fall in 11 minutes,
but as neither gained a fall in the next 30
minutes tbe match was declared a draw.
Then came a three-round glove contest
betweed two locals after which Jim Col
lins and Andrew Moore, of Big Rock. Ia.,
had a wrestling bout, Collins securing the
two first falls ia 14 and 3 minutes respec
tively. Con Doyle then gave a spirited ex
hibition in bag punching that was re
freshing af'er which" Framer Burcs, the
noblest Roman of them all, threw Anarew
Moore, of Big Rock, three times in less
than 10 minutes. Articles of incorpora
tion have been applied for and the club
will be formally organized with about 20
members and will in ali probability de
velop into a strong athletic organization.
All the Go.
Tobogganing is the popular mode of
enjoyment these days and the Tower

recreating pastime-. There have been
agrtat many pleasure par ie6 there of late

pleasureable. A number cf accidents
have testified to this fact, and bruised and
scratched features atd hinds have been
the result, but happily n serious injuries
have attended any of the experiences at

There were two different p irties at the

DICCER INDIAN LECEND.
The Hideous "Little Ked Man" Mvea la
a Cave and Sends Sickness.
Many long years ago the captain of
tne i auibio tribe of the Digger Indian
lay very sick in his wickiup. In vain
did the medicine man brew his herbs,
apply his fomentations, beat his tom
tom and make liis rattle. The fever
could not be checked, and the old man
steadily sank. All the tribe mourned.
and there was much feasting and self
torture, but the bad spirit that had
sent tne lever couul not be appeased,
says the San Francisco Chronicle.
One night the captain's youngest
aaugnter bad a dream; there appeared
to her the "Little lied Man," -ho told
her that he was the bad spirit who had
sent the fever, but that if she would
follow him he would give her an herb
which, when steeped in water, would
heal the sick. She arose and followed
him, and after a great many hours of
tramping across the hills and valleys
they came to a mighty gorge where
the wonderful "fever plant" crew.
The "Little lied Man" plucked the
herbs from the rocks, gave them to her
and told her to hasten back to her fa
It was only a dream, but the girl
could not forget it, and the next day
she left the camp and endeavored to
find the gorge where grew the healing

uci us. rur M'vcisi uavs sue SOHfllt in
vain, and as she was about to return
she heard a voice whisper "Follow, "
and saw the footprints of a man form
ing in the sand before her. She
obeyed the voice and followed, and
her invisible guide led her to the gorge
where grew the healing herbs. She
put forth her hand to pluck them,
when a voice cried "Stop:" and the
Little Red man stood before her.
"You must not touch the herbs now,"
he said, "but follow me. This is the
second time you have seen me. Now
you shall see t he home of the bad
Again she followed, for she feared
the Little lleJ man and was anxious to
please him. They entered the gloomy
gorge, where all was as silent as death;
where the birds and bees and flowers
were of stone, and came to a mighty
cavern, the walls and roof of w hich
were covered with glittering crystals
that flashed forth all the colors of the
rainbow. In one corner of this lonely
cavern was a little spring that sparkled
and sang with entrancing melodv.
The Little Red Man turned to her and
"This is the home of the bad spirit
that sent the fever to your father. I
sTn he. I can save yoiir father's life,
but you must promise that when you
have taken the herbs to him you will
return to me, drink of the singing
spring, and remain with me forever."
But the captain's daughter w-as
frightened. The Little Red Man was
old and hideous and 'a very, very bad
spirit. She fled from him and re
turned to her home, and as she en
tered her father's tepee the old cap
tain turned his face to the wall and
died. And unto this day the Diggers
believe that the Little Red Man lives
in a wonderful cavern somewhere in
the coast range, aud sends sickness
upon them because the captain's
daughter would not drink of the sing
ing spring aud remain w ith him for
ever. He Went to Scoff.
A rural New Jersey member who
had aunounced in the House that the
wants and sufferings of the insane of
the State "were all humbug," went to
her parlor to silence her w ith his argu
ments, but was constrained lv her
gentle force to listen to hers. At the
end of an hour and a half he moved
into the middle of the room, and thus
delivered himself: "Ma'am, I bid you
good uight. I do not want, for my
part, to hear anything more; the oth
ers can stay if they want to, am con
vinced; you've conquered me out and
out; I shall vote for the hospital. If
you'll come to the House and talk
there as you've done here, no man
that isn't a brute can stand you; and
so, when a man's convinced, that's
enough. The Lord bless you!" There
upon he took his departure. - T :"ia
