The Union was so anxious to learn

A young republican writes the
Arots to suggest that a united stand
be made by the young republicans of
the city who are opposing McCon
ochie's re-election, in order to make
more certain the election of T. J.
Medill and the complete cleaning out
of all that pertains to McConachie
ism. The young men all over the
city are flocking to Medill's standard.
Davenport has seen the wisdom of
choosing as its mayor a young and
energetic citizen, following the ex
ample so well set by Rock Island.
Henry Vollmer was selected by the
democratic city convention last even
ing as the nominee for the important
office. Mr. Vollmer is a youag man
not yet 25 years of age, and like Mr.
Medill in Rock Island, his nomina
tion is equivalent to his election.
After waiting all this time the onlv
objection the organ of McConoehie can
raise to the democratic candidates is
that Ferdinand Bcin, the aldermanic
candidate in the Seventh ward, works
in a Moline factory. The Union's
sudden dislike for a man who earns
on honest living in Moline is truly
remarkable. Sot many years ago the
Union was figuring as thc central fig
ure in a tableaux representing the
uniting of Rock Island and Moline.
The latest position on the part of
McConoehie and the Union is that be
cause a man living in Rock Island
works in Moline, he is unworthy
of recognition in Rock Island. The
assumption is as sensible as it is rea
sonable, especially, when it is taken
into consideration that there are can
didates on the republican ticket who
refuse to earn an honest living any
where. . Would the McConoehie
crowd like the facts brought a little
AN IRREVERENT EYE-TALIAN.

Xew York, March 22. A clever Italian,
who has been illegally "doctoring" the
currency of the republic, palming off Con
federate notes as the equal of United
States cash, and toying with the affections
of a belle of the French colony, was ar
raigned in police court yesterday. He is
Cario Manuel, and the girl he had misled
betrayed him. He was sent to the United
States commissioner to be tried on a charge
of counterfeiting. Three weeks ago Frank
Jackson, the proprietor of a saloon at
Wooster and West Third streets, informed
Detective Hanlon that an Italian had of
fered in payment for some liquor a green
back, purporting to be a f 5 silver cerliiieata.
Hon: He MrtMinorpo ed a "Fiver."
Jackson had afterward discovered that
the bill had been raised from 1 by cut
ting out the figure over the right hand
side of the paper and substituting the fig
ure five. Martha Washington's face was
metamorphosed into a li:e-like representa
tion of General Grant by the addition of
whiskers, and other changes were made to
render detection difficult. Jackson was
unable to tell who the counterfeiter was
or where he might be found. These latter
points the detectives ascertained with
the aid of a young French worn m uauio.l
