The mayor is generally x'qual to the
undertaking of boldly facing the vic
tims of his own duplicity, but when
it came to meeting City Clerk Koeh
ler tin's morning, McConochie is re
ported to have collapsed. His cus
tomary audacity failed him in ap
proaching one who had been his close
friend for so many years and one on
whom he had practiced such vile and
un prccedeiited hypooriey.

MADE A TOOL OF HIM.

A more unscrupulous, audacious
piece of political line working has
not before been attempted in Rock
Island than that to which Aid. W. F.
Schroeder was made a party through
the mayor's cunning Saturday even
ing. Learning that Mr. Schroeder's
friends and followers were indignant
as they so justly had reason to be
at the mayor's treachery, the latter
called to his aid Saturday afternoon
Chairman S. J. Collins of the repub
lican central committee, and sent
him to arrange with the controlling
delegations of the convention to put
Schroeder on the ticket with him and
thus to silence the complaints of his
followers. To the surprise of his ad
mirers, Mr. Schroeder has so far sub
missively yielded to this trickery on
the part of McConochie. and while he
has himself thus far consented to be
made a tool of. those who supported
his candidacy are not to be so easily

mayor sent Miller and the police
force out In gather in delegations
solidly of the McConochie order and
who, despite previous agreements
and attending circumstances, fixed
the convention so that Schroeder
found himself knocked out. Then to
make matters more contemptuous,
Schroeder is used in a manner that it
is hoped may contribute to the plac

that slew him. A more accurate
counterpart of the Duke of Gloster

Among the scenes of burglaries
committed throughout the city dur
ing the last couple of weeks was one
at the residence of Mr. J. B. Davison
Twenty-third street, which was en

is thought that the robbers did not
secure a great deal.

through a side window and the plun
