Thewilv wavsof wily McConochie
have found him pretty thoroughty
out. His trickery, treachery, de
ception and betrayal are well known
among all men, locally speaking.
His treachery to Schroeder and to
Koehler in his own party, and his
duality in the matter of carrying out
ante-election pledges and assurances
iu the nature ;f appointments have
been stated in detail. In relation
to the appointment of a waterworks
superintendent, two years ago the
mayor displayed a new trait in his
peculiar character that of cowar
dice. Iu fulfillment of certain ante
election agreements then made, the
mayor was in duty bound to place T.
J. Beddig iu charge of the water
works in place of .John A. Murrin.
Notwithstanding this explicit under
standing the mayor all along through
the campaign assured Mr. Murrin
that lie was his favorite for the posi
tion ami that lie would retain him if
elected. In fact, when approached
by Mr. Murrin's friends on the sub
ject lie unhesitatingly said he would
be glad to reappoint him. when he
knew all along he was pledged to ap
point Mr. Rettig.if elected. After the
election he told Mr. Murrin that lie
would appoint him if he secured tin
votes of eight aldermen to confirm
him. The stipulation was readily
met, Mr. Murrin's friends securing
the endorsement not onlvof theeight
aldermen, l.tit two to spare. On the
day of the appointments McCoiiochit'
admitted to Mr. Murrin's friends
when thev told him thev had the
support of tin- coiuieil. that !c
would not appoint Mr. Murrin
anyway until rie had tirt ap
pointed Keddig. but verv confiden
tially he assured Mr. Murrin's friends
that the appointment of Beddig
would be a mere matter of form, as it
could not be confirmed, and that then
he would name Murrin.
"o wani lie I'tTsonitlt-U.
Well the name of T. J. lteddig was
presented by the mayor to the coun
cil. The vote on confirmation stood
7 to 7, and the mayor again refused
to cast the deciding vote on his own
appointment. Mr. Murrin's friends
in the council were then ready to
sustain his appointment, but did
they get a chance to? Did the mayor
carry out his promise and appoint
Mr. Murrin? No he did not. nor has
he to this day. He simply let the
matter slip and for two years Mock

THE HOW OF IT.
True SlgnirleaiiceS of That L o tv n Town
The Union of this morning says:
"A few Catholics, who are also dem
ocrats, held a sort of religious politi
cal meeting in Roche's hall on Sun
day afternoon," etc. As usual the
McConochie organ has again gone on
in its stumbling way and sprung
a boomerang for its ow n ticket. The
fact is, there was no meeting held in
Roche's hall of any kind by demo
crats or Catholics, as the article re
ferred to seeks' to convey. There
was, however, a meeting held in the
Second ward previous to Sunday, not
by those to whom the Union refers,
but by republicans, who, previous to
the convention, were friends of Mr.
Schroeder, ami who have since be
come indignant at their own party's
attempt to make a tool of him.
How Thlngrs iat Mixed.
A commit tee was appointed to wait
upon Mr. Schroeder and ask him to
withdraw from the ticket, and that is
the way the Union got things con
founded in having mentioned some
other delegation's mission to visit.
him. The self respecting friends of Mr.
Schroeder have been indignant ever
since he was put in the McConochie
orchestra to play second fiddle, and
their bitterness of feeling has been
not only towards the McConochie
party, but they have been very greatly
provoked at Schroeder for lending
himself to a man who has so deceived.
wrTuiged and betrayed him as McCon
ochie has Schroeder.
A Miller Triek l'oiled.
McConochie's right hand man.
Miller, attempted a piece of political
tine work down town Sunday, in
which, however, he failed beautifully.
Knowing that the jig is up with
McConochie ring rule, the head of
the police went dow n into the Second
ward and had the audacity to make
a projKisition to the friend's of Fred
erick Schroeder, the democratic ald
ermanic candidate, to go into a com
binatson !y which support from Mil
ler for Schroeder was to be rewarded
by votes for McConochie. Mr.
Schroeder promptly and indignantly
resented the proposition and in
formed Miller that he was not doing
business that way. He was for up
right and honest politics, and furth
ermore was for the entire democratic
ticket, and he expected all his friends
to be likewise. Notwithstanding this
Miller came up town and made his
boasts that he had fixed things up
with Schroeder to carry the Second
ward for McConochie.
Mr. Schroeder is not obliged to
make an v "deals" with Miller or any
one else to be elected alderman for
the Second ward. His election is cer
tain, not only because of his own
popularity, but because, despite the
chief's at tempted fine work yester
day, the republican candidate " in the
ward received his nomination through
The Tri-Clty Advertising.
At the meeting cf the Davenport
Business Men's association last even
ing, W. C. I lay ward called up the
matter of placing stock in the Tri
City Improvement league, stating
that his committee, that of finance,
to which the matter had been re
ferred. had deemed it advisable to call
a general meeting of citizens to con
sider the subject. The meeting had
been called in connection with the
RusMiess Men's association and the
matter was open for discussion.
Mr. Hayward. S. F. Smith, Joe R.
Lane, Henry Korn. B. F. Tilli nghast,
A. P. McGuirk and George Kelley
joined in the discussion that follow
ed, and light was shed iiMn nearly
ail branches of the topic except the
definite object to which the league
proposes to devate the money raised
for it. The league had been waiting
to see how much money it could
count upon having at its disposal,
but the preponderence of sentiment
seemed to be in favor of a declaration
upon its part of its plans before the
attempt to raise the money w as be
gun in earnest. The matter was left
in the hands of the finance committee
until the league could mature its
plans and report.
Marriages of Consanguinity.
Dr. Retjnault, in a paper read before the
French Association for the Advancement
of Science at Pau, observed that there are
two varieties of consanguinity. In the
first, two near blood relations married.
This has been prohibited at all times and
in nearly all nations. To the second, the
customary intermarriage of the natives of
a district, he applied the term topograph
ical consiuiguinity. In certain races in
North America, Australia and elsewhere
this is forbidden.
Dr. Regnuult sees traces of this practice
in the civilized world. The more the in
habitants of a district intermarry, the more
severe are they against the intermarriage
of blood relations. This is seen in remote
villages. On the other hand, in towns
where the citizens can and do readily mar
ry elsewhere, they trouble little about (he
marriage of cousins. In feudal times trav
eling was very difficult. The commonalty
had to marry natives of their own district.

"How do you like the new minister!"' in
quired one of the leading members of a
suburban flock of the deacon's wife.
T don't like him at all," was the reply.
"Of course I invited him to dine with us
when he was here on trial, and naturally
enough I riologused in advance for the din
ner, but I leave it to you if that afforded
him ground to insult me?"
"Insult you? Certainly not. How did
be do that?"
"Oh, when it came time to say grace he
asked the Lord to bless the 'frugal meal,'
and really, between us, I must admit that
I had made most elaborate preparations."
