But no one has seen a policeman
doing any political work since the
nomination, either for the mayor or
against Medill. We did our work be
fore the convention; now we are at
tending strictly to business."
The candor and frankness of the
chief is ontj of the curiosities of the
McConochie-Miller campaign, but we
very much fear that during those
times the police were doing their
work, as between " Mcl'onochie and
Schroeder.thcy contracted habits that
they have not yet gotten entirely
over. Of course the public has no
idea or no reason for knowing why
t he police should be so anxious to fig
ure in the campaign between Mcl'on
ochie and Schroeder. That is all in
the republican party and none of the
public's business. Neither is it any
of the public's business which way
the Miller cat jumps, because it be
longs to the republican party.

Tim Mayor' tiulte Iralini With !rft r-
etn-e to Mr. Harris.
The Amir of yesterday spoke of
the amusing incident on the part of
the present municipal administration
in having the streets cleaned at this
particular time, as the iirst time the
job has been undertaken with any de
gree of thoroughness during the last
term of the Mcl'onochie regime. It
will be remembered that all through
the first two years of tlie McConochie
administration much complaint was
made of the manner in which Street
Supt. Harris discharged his duties
and of the neglect shown on every
hand of the matter of properly clean
ing the streets. Mr. Harris was ac
cused on every hand of indolence and
indifference. "He made no defense in
the face of such charges, and when
his term of ollice expired the mayor
sought to merit public approbation
by removing him and appointing
("apt. James Blaisdell to the position.
But the anticipated improvement
came out. The past two years have
witnessed no reformation as regards
the streets. The iob has been attend
ed to perhaps half a dozen times in
the term of Cant. Hkus.tcll s ollice, in
cluding the work now being done.
anil on which, by the way, more men
are engaged than at any time hereto
fore. The Mayor's Ioulle Dentins.
As said before, the mayor assumed
the position of responding to pubKi
clamor w hen he caused Capt. Blais
dell to supersede Mr. Harris, and all
on the quiet he made many intima
tions of the improvements to come
w it h t he change. He asserted that
Mr. Harris hail not done his work
satisfactorily and that he had only
awaited the opportunity to make the
change. But this is when' the
mayor's duality manifested itself,
and a little of the inner history of
the relations between the mayor and
Mr. Harris will be of considerable
interest in this connection. It has
been stated that Mr. Harris
became unpopular through
the methods employed while
he was street superintendent. Now
as to the inner facts of the case:
During all the time that Mr. Harris
was subjected to public criticism, he
found no closer sympathizer than the
mavor. By his chief the superinten
dent of streets was told to pay no at
tention to what the public thought
orsa'd. but to go right along in the
even tenure of his way: that as long
as lie pleased him (the mayor) the
street superintendent need give him
self no concern. So Mr. Harris
went right along doing the mayor's
bidding and taking the blame for it.
The mayor consoled with him in
t he abuse he was getting and told
him he was all right ami keep right
on doing just as he was doing.
The time for the election of two
years ago approached. The mayor
went to Harris and reminded him
that he had stood by him when the
public was clamoring for a change,
and told him the time hail come to
show his gratitude. Harris took the
hint and hustled about among his
friends and assisted in renominating
the mavor. A few davs before elec
tion Mr. Harris had a tempting
offer from a Chicago auctioneer
ing house at a good salary. Mr. Har
ris went to the mayor and told him
of his opport unity and his disposition
to take advantage of it unless he had
reliable assurances that he would re
ceive reappointment in the event of
the mayors election. 1 lie mayor
told Mr. Harris lie had no other in
tention lint to reappoint him and that
he would also give him a chance to
do better work and retrieve his repu
tation. With this understanding
Mr. Harris declined his Chicago of
fer and staid with the mayor. He
hail no more conversation with the
mayor on the subject, but when the
time came for appointments Mr.Har
ris was dismayed to find himself
shelved, while the mayor told it
about that Mr. Harris had made such
a miserable street superintendent
that he was obliged to remove him.
That there has been no improve
ment over the previous two years,
during Capt. Blaisdell's incumbency
of the office, is proof that the fault is
more with the administration than
with the street superintendent's of
fice. A Double Wedding.

The Christian chapel, at the cor
ner of Third avenue and Fifteenth
street, was taxed to its utmost ca
pacity last evening with members of
the congregation and well wishers of
the church, the occasion being
the twenty-fifth anniversary, of the
organization of that congregation.
The guests were received in the par
lors of the church, which have re
cently been remodeled by four of the
charter members of the congregation

Mesdames Blackball and Sears. The
reception was followed by a pro

Rev. T. W. Grafton, pastor of the
church, then read a history of the
congregation from its lirst organiza
tion, which was substantially as fol
lows: The lirst meeting was held in
the German church on Twentieth
street March 23. 1SG8, soon afterward
exchanging its place of meeting to a
small hall in the building w hich stood
then on the site now occupied bv the
Mit,-hel! & Lynde block. While'thus
meeting like its apostolic prototype,
in an upper room, the old Baptist
church was offered for sale and pur
chased by P. L. Mitchell. After a
thoi'iiugh overhauling and extensive
improvements, the church was in
iicil to occupy, rent free, the reno
vated building. In October 1870 it
entered into possession and since has
continued to meet without interrup
tion in its present building. In 1811
Mr. Mitchell generously gave the
church a title to the proper! v which
had been its home so long and upon
which he had expended about s$12,O!'0.
and it today rejoices under its own
vine and fig tree. 1 he church :b
organized with 13 charter members,
onlv seven of whom are now living
four still residents of Rock Island
and active members of the church.
Shortly after its organization, the
service of Rev. Kdwin Rodgers was
secured as pastor, and under his
three years" pastorate the church
flourished. He was followed bv Revs.
C. P. Corn. II. Rice and H. U. Dak
