The Ticket Headed by T. v
Medill for Mayor.
POPULAR WITH ALL GLASSES
The .SenUinent With Which the Demo
cratic Nominations Were Met All Over
the C ity Yesterday The Mae of the
l'eole Demand Necllll and Will See that
They Have Him
It is doubtful if it ever oeeurred
before in Rock Island's history that
the results of a convention created
such an impression on the commu
nity as that whieh the ticket which
was the outgrowth of Thursday even
ing democratic convention made 111
Rock Island yesterday, meeting such
a stronjr feeling of approbation with
the party responsible for it. and the
people at larpre on the one hand, and
attended bv such consternation in
the little rinj that is running things
on the other side. That the choice
of the democracy brought a stagger
ing blow to MeC'onochieism and its
few sympathizers, was as.apparent as
it was that the democratic party hail
forestalled itself for the impending
conflict with a candidate who will
sweep the city from end to end in
the face of any opposition that could
possibly be concocted.
Medlll Is Popular
That T. J. Medill is as popular a
candidate as could have been found
bv the party as a leader was evinced
oil every hand yesterday, where the
party was gratified to tind general
commendation of the convention's
work. Business and professional
men. laboring people of ail classes
were prolific in their praise of Mr.
Medill. He is an upright, wide
awake business man who has tiecn
identified w ith Rock Island's interests
ever since his residence here."' said
one citizen with enthusiasm. Orig
inally a Rock Island county boy and
coming here w ith only his confidence
in the city and his exertions to sus
tain him. "he has risn to a place as
one of the representative men in
Rock Island, l'ully equipped to suc
cessfully discharge the duties of any
responsible position to which he
might be called, he comes before the
people in response to their call, not
seeking the office, but yielding to
the popular pressure that has been
brought to bear upon him anil thus
in striking contrast- with anyone
whom the the republicans might
In Strlkluff Contrast.
Within the ranks of the
latter party it is doubtful if the city
ever witnessed a more desperate
tight than that w hich has been carried
on by the two candidates for the
mayoral nomination. Mr. MeC'ono
chie on the one hand has resorted to
very trick and strategy known to
politics, to win a renominating be-.-ides
throwing into the contest every
advantage possible as un official,
while his opponent has worked early
and late begging ami imploring the
party leaders for the recognition
which Mi Chonochie's treachery had
denied him. With Schroeder he has
made the effort of his life to gratify
the ambition of his life.
Called to the lMaee.
Mr. Medill on the other hand has
been sought out for the nomination.
Cntil formally nominated he pre
served the proper dignity with refer
ence thereto, believing the office
should seek the man rather than the
man theotliee. Once selected and fully
realizing ami appreciating the honor
conferred upon him in being named
for so high an office, he w ill spare no
honorable effort to show that he is
worthy of the trust that the demo
crats have already reposed in him, and
to be elected to "the office for w hich
he has been nominated.
Mr. Medill stands ready to meet
all comers whom the opposition may
propose MeConochie preferred.
The Reynold lieidi-tire Itnhhed Last
Burglars forced their way into the
Reynolds residence on Moliue avenue
some time last night, and ransacked
it thoroughly, though how much was
stolen cannot be determined. En
trance was gained by raising a w in
dow on the east side of the house that
leads into the dining room. The en
tire house except the two rear rooms,
which were locked, was gone through,
and every nook and corner where
jewelry or silver would be apt to be
found were peered into. In the din
ing room a small safe was broken
open and its contents strewn about
the room. Every drawer up stairs
and down was pulled out and the con
tents emptied upon the floor. Many
articles of value were passed in the
hasty searcli, it being apparent that
the burglars were after money or
jewelry. Henry Frohboes, who has
charge 01 the house during the ab
scence of the family, is not enough
acquainted with the articles of value
in the house to know just what is
missing. An overcoat belonging to
the late E. P. Reynolds was taken
and a large frame containing a large
collection of old coins and script was
broken and the money taken. Ihe
gold head was also broken off a fine
cane and probably every article in
the jewelry line that could be found

appearances the search must have
consumed a long time so thorough

Wily Hill MeConochie Lays Oat l'uor
Schroeder In the Caucuses.
The cunning hand of MeConochie
has again taken control of republican
ism in Rock Island. Broken pledges,
political treachery and deception on
his part to the contrary notwith
standing.the wily William triumphed
or rather his trickery triumphed
in the republican caucuses last night,
and unless the entirely unexpected
happens, Mr. MeConochie will once
more place the republican nomina
tion in iiis vest pocket tonight. It
will be first decided step of his
political downfall, no matter what j
the action of the convention with
reference to him, for if the stronger
element of his own party fails to as
sert itself, the people may be relied
upon to do it April 4 in an unmistak
able manner. Five republican cau
cuses out of seven elected delegations
that will support MeConochie in the
convention. While it is known that
the individual sentiments of several
of those composing the delegations
are opposed to MeConochie, they will
under instructions support him in the
convention. It took hard work for
MeConochie to win out with his
own party, and to do so he has
brought the entire police force to his
aid. Chief Miller haying devoted al
most his entire time to the Me
Conochie canvass for two months
and when the results were known
last night, there was not a more elated
man in town than Miller himself.
Cruel Deception of Schroeder.
Mct'onochie's cruel duplicity to
Aid. Schroeder, whose life long am
bition has been to be mayor, is one
of the most striking evidences of the
mayor's utter abandon to any
thing akin to fairness and honesty in
politics. Two years ago the mayor
assured Mr. Schroeder, then a more
formidable opponent for the nomina
tion than he has proven himself this
year, that if he would withdraw he
would give him a clear lield this
year. With this understanding
Schroeder disposed of his business
interests declined to be an alder
manic candidate for re-election and
made other arrangements to he a can
didate. To his dismay he found Me
Conochie again in the ring prepared
to knock him out. Schroeder could
not believe that the party would sus
tain such double dealing, and though
astounded by the mayor's unblush
ing broach of confidence, he has gone
earnestly on with his canvass and
will continue to up to the last min
u te tonight.
None hut MeConochie Men Wanted.
In order to make things sure for
MeConochie in the convention, and
knowing that the t vo upper wards
would sustain Schroeder. the five
lower wards were packed for the
mayor. Nevertheless there was a
spirited contest among the delega
tions; no where more so than in
McConochie's own ward the Sixth
where the vote stood )SG for Schroe
der. to 71 for MeConochie. The Me
Conochie crowd retaliated, however,
by knocking out the republican fa
vorite, Robert Lynn, for alderman.
The Fifth ward voting precinct has
seen some wild times, hut the pande
monium then; last night would have
made an Indian of a western ghost
dance turn green with envy. The
light was mainly on city clerk. As
soon as the tick of a watch marked
7:.'Ji) the Montgomery faction rushed
John lluntoon into the chair and D.
E. Noftsker w as made secretary. The
chairman led off with the usual re
publican plea in that ward for no
one to vote but those who would
swear allegieuce to the party, and
closed it with a quiet bluff, saying
that there was a law to reach such
cases. When the vote for alder
man was announced, Charles
Oswald was sprung to oj
pose Knox, whom the latter's
friends expected to nominate by ac
clamation. Then came on the fever;
it looked like it had been packed for
Oswald and a wild scene ensued. A
tremenduous crowd swarmed in and
around the house and the voting was
kept up so long that lluntoon got
learv ami choked off the voting
and then there was more trou
ble. A half dozen made mo
tions at once and it was
decided to reconsider the ballot;then
anyone who hadn't voted was told to
do so, and another shower of ballots
went into the hats. Order was tin
ally restored and the vote announced
showed Knox GO. Oswald So, and the
former was declared the nominee.
When the vote for delegates was an
nounced there was a worse rush than
before and it took over an hour to get
tbe result, the Koehler faction carry-in"-
off the pie, while the McDonald
and Montgomery crowds left as sud
denly as they had appeared.
la the Lower Wards.
In the First ward the caucus was
ca led 15 minutes in advance of
the time announced. Everything
had been cut and dried, and the Me
Conochie printed ticket put through
before anyone but the chosen few
had arrived. The caucus also com
plimented the democrats by endors
ing one of their party, William Roth,
for alderman. Some time ago the
MaChonochie machine in that ward
had laid away Aid. Andrew Johnson
and had selected Horatio N. Woods
to make the run for alderman, and he
had consented to be the nominee,
but when Mr. Roth, who is a demo
crat in every sense of the word, ac
cepted tbe nomination of his party,
the republicans who had never so
honored him and realizing his
strength, dropped Woods uncere
moniously ana gave Mr.Roth the left
handed compliment. .
lathe Second ward, .he Miller
bench of McConochiesm hail decreed
that the Hetter faction, against whom
he held a personal spite, should go
down and down it went, a candidate
for alderman being selected whom no
one in the word but MeConochie
seems to know.
While every indication points to
MeConochie nomination tonight,
it is not so certain as to Koehler and
on this point a surprise may be in
store. The . collectorship "will, go
down topn to either Burgh or Mc
Garrey. In Detail
