VAINLY SEEKS TO MAKE EXCUSES.
He tells about the Betrayal of Srhroetler

the lupllelty and Cowardice as Regards

Mayor McCouoehie has risen to ex
plain. It is quite a novel spectacle
too, the central candidate on one
side in a campaign, coming forth with
a 2-colnmn newspaper contribution
in his own behalf. Hut McConochie
notwithstanding his avowed inten
tions to conduct himself with dignity
becoming one aspiring for such an
office, has found himself so surround-

ed by entangling complications which
are the fruit of his own deceptions,
betrayal and false representations,
that lie has taken his chances on an
attempted explanation aual excuse of
hi act and shortcomings duriug hi
incumbency of the mayor's chair.
After telling in his preamble how in
behalf of his friends ami himself he is
compelled to come forward anal cor
rect same of the most flagrant lies
and mistatement ever perpetrated
on the public."' then he proceed to
Not In tlie I.eaHt K?otlsticl.
First im modestly assumes that
'about two months ago, when it was
apparent I would again be the repub
lican nominee," a democrat had un
bosomed to him the plan of campaign
to be pursued by the Ahcis this
spring, which, in short, was to lay at
the McConochie door the responsi
bility of t he tlcfeat of all other aspi
rants for the nomination. How
dreadful! To think that the AkiU's
should so forecast the future a to
see the McConochie handwriting on
the wall, and two months ago when
it was apparent that 1 would again
be the republican nominee," to thus
deliberately plan to charge the same
"apparent republican nominee'"
with the downfall of the other
republican aspirants, ami worse than
all to divulge all these plans to "the
most reliable democratic authority"
such as would run right straight to
McConochie with it oh! it isterirble.
And the victim of such a conspiracy
one so innocent aud lamblike, Mer
ciful heavens forbid: And then too,
that garbled extracts from the may
or's speeches were to be circulated,
calculated to misrepresent his atti
tude on religious questions. We fear
very much that the mayor's imagi
nation has had something to do with
this latter presumption aud that
a conscience ill at ease
has been father to the suspicion that
certain utterances of the past might
be brought 4ip to confront him.
But to the mayor's explanations.
He first takes up the feeling between
Aid. Schroeder and himself, and as
serts that at the time of his election
two years ago, he had secured the
intervention of a friend of Mr.
Schroeder 4 -to get him and go down
town to help me out, and if ever I
had a chance should he be a candi
date for any other otlice at any
future time I would return the ser
vice." The mayor scrupulously
avoids reference, however, to a
meeting in the store of a mutual
friend of both, in which he made a
deliberate pledge that if Schroeder
would snptmrt him that time he
would step aside two years later and
let him have the nomination. It was
with this understanding that Mr.
Schroeder made all his preparations
and plans with that end in view.
On the point of his duplicity to II.
C. Harris for the street superintend
ency, the major rehearses the con
versation between Harris and himself
concerning the former's appointment
"About two months before the
spring election two years ago the
Akgls began the campaign with a
bitter attack upon Harris which was
kept up for, some time and complete
ly disgusted and demoralized him;
so much so he wanted t resign. I
told him not to desert while, under
fire. After the lire slackened a few
days later h informed me he had
an" opportunity to accept a situation
in Chicago. U then told him not to
lose a good situation as no one
could tell what the outcome might
be. He afterward told me his wife
was not very well and the position
was open to" him any time. This
must have been true for he after
wards accepted it. After the elec
tion the Akgis made it so hot for
him he came to the conclusion, after
a careful canvass of the aldermen,
that he could not be confirmed, and
so informed me and, asked me not to
consider him as . a candidate any
Very Kind to Sir. Harris.
He. then goes on to tell about how
Mr. Harris afterward came forward
and pressed him to appoint him, and
the mayor finally consented to do so,
on the day the appointments were to
be made, ""but" he continues "after
taking my seat I found on my desk a
petition signed by seven or eight al
dermen asking me not to reappoint
Harris as they did not want to be
put on recont if possible as voting
tgainst my appointment." Arid this
was the reason the mayor did not
appoint Harris. The mayor's mem
ory for details is sadly at' fault on one
hand, while he is exceedingly imag
inative on the other. While convey
ing the mistaken notion about the ill
ness of Mr. Harris1 wife Mr. Harris
informs us his wife has not been ill
for 11 years he has lost sight entire
ly of the fact that he repeatedly
urged Mr. Harris not to accept the
Chicago offer, and assured him up to
5 o'clock in the afternoon of the day
of the appointments that he would
name him; and furthermore, while
referring to that petition he found on
liia desk, he has failed to recall the
fact that it was prepared in pursuance
of his cunning, that prior to the
time for the appointments to be made
he suggested to an alderman that he
get up a petition addressed to the
mayor and signed by half of the ald
ermen, protesting against Harris' ap
pointment, the suggestion wa car
ried out and seven aldermen sub
scribed themselves to the petition.
It was just what the foxy mayor
wanted, and after the council he gave
it to Mr. Harris, who still has it
There was no duplicity about that,
not at all.
The mayor touches very briefly on
the health commissionership ap
pointment, evidently reathrming Ins
dislike to "take sides as between the
two schools of medicine." On the
question of superintendent of water
works, he speaks oi Mr. Murrin s ut
ness for the position, sayinir. he
seems to be recognized by all
clasdes as a good man for the place.
Tlie public generally look upon the
waterworks plant as too valuable to
be changed at the wtum oi every in
coming mayor. What I have done
for Mr. Murrin I have done for the
public welfare against the advice of
mv political friends." This view of
the matter evidently slipped the
mayor's attention at the moment he
appointed Mr. liettig in Mr. Murrin's
place, immediately alter his last
election, and it is only due to the
fact that Mr. Keddi? was not con
firmed that Mr. Murrin has since
held over from time to time, though
the mayor has never thought enough
of his own convictions of public feel
ing to appoint him.
tranp;e Ideas of Loyalty.
The mayor goes on in a disconnect
ed sort of way to explain how he has
happened to do so and why. He tells
about how two years ago when on
the day of the convention the AitGfS
announced that he was to knife
Koehler. he went into the convention
with the declaration that if Koehler
was to be done up he was to be
counted out, and that he would have
refused to run then had kis col
leagues on the ticket been slaughter
ed.but he neglects to say why he
did not again display the same loyal
ty to his colleagues by going into the
onvention for Koehler or to die this
year. The AitGis had previously
announced that McConochie was
slaughtering Koehler, but yet this
year the operation went on without
the mayor's interference. Circum
stances" seem to have altered cases
However the public has witnessed
the innovation of seeing the mayor
show his hand at last but such a
A Plain Talk About Facta
As the beautiful spring draws near
er to us, the lady of the house busies
herself in adorning her home with
fresh decorations. There is nothing
that makes a house look more home
like and beautiful than a tastefully
selected carpet, and we would be
pleased to have attention for a few
moments with a little plain talk set
ting forth facts regarding our spring
stock, which we will vouch for as be-in"-
the largest and most complete
stockof carpets in this section of the
country, comprising the best makes,
the leadin" designs and patterns in
the market! We buy direct from the
laro-est carpet mills in America for
cash, which doubly proves that we
can give you a better article at a
priee no one can duplicate. We do
not advertise what we can not live up
to, as some others do, claiming the
largest stock at lowest prices, and
t hereby make a disappointment. All
we ask" of you is to call and see for
yourself. We do everything on a big
scale and that accounts for our big
business. We have everything in the
stock that heart can wish and money
