Notwithstanding that. th Akoi e
some time since announced the can
didacy of Hugh A. McDonald for the
city elerkship nomination on the re-
publican ticket as part ami parcel of
a combination headed -v Aid.
Sehroeder.and whose main ol-ject was
to ilefeat the MeConoehie-Koehler-Haas
combination, the U lion has
steadfastly refused to respect M'
Donahl's candidaey until now. From
Die first the Union has been inclined
toward the retaining in power of the
administration combine. It ignored
(.'apt. Montgamery's candidacy until
the latter hec-ame tireel una formally
inriounced himself. Tod: v with
much reluctance it aecomp mies Mr.
McDonald's personal announcement
of his own candidacy bv traeefullv
stating "C'apt. McDonald gives notice
this morning that he won d like to
have the republican nomination for
city clerk, a position for w'.iieh lie is
well qualities, etc. Hetveen the
lines of t his announcement '.he Union
might have said in words, what can
be readily discerned that notwith
standing what Mr. McDonald or any
other body "would like to have."
there is but one candidate within the
republican fold for the city clerkship
nomination, and that cat didate is
Robert Koehler. by pcrn.ission of
William MeConoehie. So much for
the political relations of McDonald
and Koehler and the attitude of the
raavnr as regards their eaiididaey.

Hut there are three candidates for
the republican nomination for city
elerk. and the Fifth ward enjoys the
distinction of claiming t.iem all.
There the preliminary skimishes are
going on. there the bitterest feeling
is even now being engendered, and
there the hottest tight i.- to be had
over the delegation. 1 wo years ago,
and as long as four years ago. J. Alex
Montgomery was a candidate for the
'city clerkship nomination early in
the canvass as he is now. At the re
publican city township cor vfiition of
1891 when Mr. MeConoehie was mak
ing up his slate for a second term he
met Mr. Montgomery in Turner hall
and asked him is he was a candidate
before the convention, and Mr. Mont
gomery at that time informed hiinthat
lie was not. whereupon M r. Mct'ono
hie significantly replied tln.t if he ran.
"that he would" not." ('apt. Koehler
also came to Mr. Montgomery and
asked him not to allow his name to
be used. These circumstances amply
demonstrated that what held good
then, holds good now. that it is Me
Conoehie, Koehler & Co.. now until
death, and death to one is death to
all. So it will be from every indica
tion death to all.
An to the roller! orsMp.
The fact that all the republican
candidates who are bound to be nom
inated whether or no. those who are
in the combine, reside up town has
lead to tl.e formulation f a truce
with some one for collector residing
down, town and to that end Burgh
and McGarvey are both in favor and
both are doing all but bre iking their
necks to get into the coml ination.
At last night's meeting rf the city
council the usual routine business
was gone through with. An ordi
nance was passed providing for the
sale of the Franklin and (Jilpin hose
house property. An ordinance was
also passed for the improvement of
Twenty-third street to a point south
of Ninth avenue. The sj ecial com
mittee to whom was referred the city
attorney's report upon the occu
pancy of First avenue, made its re
port and a discussion followed on its
immediate adoption, Fred Hass be
ing extended the courtesy of being
heard on the matter. There were
hot words between Aid. Kennedy and
Mr. Hass, the mayor calling them to
order the report being laid over un
der the rules.
Decidedly the event of the evening
was the colloquy between the two
gentlemen mentioned. Mr. Hass was
of the opinion that the alcerman was
attempting to retard tho measure,
and took occasion to state that it ap
peared that way at least. The other
resented the insinuation with langu
age that might have provoked a pas
sage at arms or an affair of honor,
but peace linally asserted itself.

several witnesses being examined to '
determine the facts leading up to his
The K vide nee.
The first witness examined was
William Van Dyke, of Davenport, a
switchman in the employ of the C,
R. I. & P., who testified to having had
his attention called to the body" of
the dead man lying on the track at
about 6:20 o'clock. Witness gave a
description of the position in which
the body was found, and testilied
further to having notified the yard
master of the occurrence and asking
the latter to inform the coroner and
police. Witness did not remember
of ever having seen the man before.
Dr. 1. W. Wheeler, who made an
ex:vin ination of the body shortly after
it bad been found, was next put
upon the stand and gave a description
of the wounds upon the body. Wit
ness found a gash some three inches
long on the right side of the neck and
also discovered that the neck had
been broken. There was also a scalp
wound upon the back of the head and
bruises on the face and upper part of
the breast, the latter giving the ap
pearance that something had passed
over it. In the opinion of tin? wit
ness, either of the first named in jur
ies would have been sufficient to
cause death, it being his opinion also
that the man was killed by the ears.
E. (). Lundy, the night fireman at
the boiler house. near "where the body
was found, was then examined, but
threw no new light on the accident
except to state that Daniel Moraritv
had passed along that way just pre
vious to the pulling in of freight No.
92 from the west. and saw no body on
the track then. In the opinion of
the witness he had met his death in
crawling between the cars.
William Arnold, the engineer on
engine 34'J, which was the one pull
ing train number 92. saw nothing of
the man. nor did any of the other
train men. James Breen. a switch
man, and C. M- Williams, an engi
neer. also gave testimony in relation
to the matter corroborative of the
Officer William Glass testified to
having met the man earlier in the
evening near the Kroofcs crossing, the
stranger being then on his way down
the tracks toward the round house.
He had called at Knox's undertaking
rooms and identified the body as that
of the man he had met late in the af
ternoon. The Verdlet.
After a few minutes' deliberation
the jury returned a verdict that the
unknown man came to his death "by

A BRAVE ACT.
Kiigiiirer Shraueer, of the Kock Island,
Kik Ills Life to Save Hla Engine.
The Chicago Herald contains the
following relating to the brave act of
the well known Kock Island engineer,
whose home is in this city:
Owing to a misplaced switch a col
lision occurred on the Rock Island
road yesterday morning at 9 o'clock
between the suburban train known as
the Blue Island dummy and an en
gine w hich was backing "down to take
a passenger train. Both engines
were badly damaged, but owing to
the courageousness of Samuel
Shrauger, the engineer of the light
engine, no passengers on the subur
ban train were seriously hurt, though
thev received a shaking.
The passenger train drawn by en
gine 458, with Engineer Lockwood at
the throttle, was approaching Forty
fifth street at the usual speed, and
engine 913, with Sam Shrauger, was
backing down. The switch was open
and Shrauger's engine ran on to the
main track. Both engineers saw that
a collision was inevitable, and Lock
wood and bis fireman jumped. The
fireman of 913 also leaped from the
engine, but Shrauger stuck to his
post and reversed his engine. It was
too late to avoid a smash and the two
locomotives came together with great
force. Shrauger was thrown several
vards by the force of the collision,
but picked himself up unhurt, while
Lockwood sprained his ankle in
The passengers on the train were
badly scaredand shaken up, but no
casualties were reported.

Likelihood That the Matter Will Come ( p
at Springllrld Tills Week.
Today's Chicago Herald has a
Springfield dispatch which says:
1 he democrats say that they will
probably be able to reach an agree
ment this week on a bill to reappor
tion the congressional districts of
the state. The matter of congres
sional apportionment has been de
layed under one pretense or another
until this time in order to give the
democratic members of congress an
opportunity to be present and ex
plain their views. It is expected
that Congressmen Torman, Fithian.
Williams, Lane, Scott and Cable will
arrive here tomorrow or next dav.
The democratic members of the leg
islature say they have no doubt the
congressmen w'ill be able to agree
upon a congressional apportionment
bill that will be satisfactory to all
What Mr. Cahle Wants.
Whatever bill the congressmen
recommend will be passed by the
legislature. Unfortunately, ' the
prospect of an agreement among the
congressmen is not as bright as it
might be, ow ing to a report that Ben
Cable is coming here with the deter
mination to have Rock Island county
put into a democratic congressional
district. In order to accomplish
this it will be necessary to have a
shoestring district running down the
Mississippi river from Rock Island
county to and including Adams coun
ty. If Cable should succeed in hav
ing such a district mapped out it
would disarrange all the other dis
tricts in the state and would necessi
tate the preparation of an entirely
new apportionment plan. It is al
most certain that if Cable insists on
such an arrangement his existence
will lead to a clash among the con-
gressmen. and thev will soon be as
hojelessIy divided as the members of
the legislature are at present. But
in spite of this threatened contingen
cy the conviction is very strong here
now that some sort of a congres
sional apportionment scheme will be
adopted by the democratic caucus
this week. As soon as the congres
sional apportionment is out of the
way the senatorial apportionment
will be taken up and efforts will be
made to reach an agreement on that

Mayor MeConoehie is deeply inter
ested in keeping Koehler and Haas on
the ticket with him in order to draw
some German support. But they are
a little too liberal in their views to
suit the crowd which is dominating
republican polities in this oty and
county at the present time, and "there
is considerable opjwsition to their
nomination. But it is probable that
the mayor can pull them through, as
he has explained to his "patriotic"
friends that it will be impossible to
win without them.
