Mayor McConochie in his contribu
tion to Thnrsdav's Union in seekinir
, , e
to forestall any act of The Akgl's in
relation to his utterances speaks of a
report that reached him as to the
plan of campaign to be pursued by
this paper and among other things
says: '-Garbled extracts of my
speeches were also to be circulated;
in some cases I w as to bo painted as
an infidel anil unbeliever, in others
as a narrow minded religious bigot."
As stated yesterday a guilty con
science was no doubt father to the
suspicion and while no reference
whatever has hertofore been made to
any assertion of the mayor iu public:
a perusal of his speeches brings to
light some of the things that his
honor no doubt wishes had been left
unsaid, and which is the cause of his
The Mayor wih In hu 111 Mood.
In his address at Harper's theatre on
the evening of March 18D3. on the
occasion of the visit of the head ofli
cers of the Modern Woodmen to the
city, he. without the least provoca
tion whatever, made one of the most
vicious onslaughts on Christianity
that has ever escaped utterance in
this city anil with just as little rea
son on such an occasion, he in the
next breath assailed the saloon in the
most bitter terms. In speaking of
the relation of church and state on
that occasion, the mayor said: "It
has always been the policy of both
church and state to combine in an
unholy alliance as a matter of self
protection, and duringrihe dark ages
tt was the policy of the church to
stamp out all the intelligence in the
world except what was in their own
' narrow fold, and I am sorry to say.
Wut it is a fact nevertheless, and the
history of the world will prove the
truth of my assertion, that Christi
anity and tyranny have always
marched hand in hand down through
all the ages in all their efforts to sup
press the spreading of universal lib
erty ana free thought.'
Notwithstanding this vicious and
utterly uncalled for attack on Christi
anity he again goes out of his way a
few "minutes later anil turns his gun
full on the saloons and -assails all
connected with them, denouncing
them in the most bitter terms in the
following language: -I think the
time has come for the church and
these organizations to unite their
forces in a warfare against the great
est monster of the age, the enetnv of
the human race, training all their
guns ou the ramparts of King Alco
hol, and make it one of the funda
mental principles of our creed to
throw our great combined moral in
fluence around our members, re
straining them in their excesses and
make it one of the inflexible rules (f
both church and order to admit no
i man to membership who in in anv
wav connected with the nefarious anil
t Garbled Kxtraet."
The above are not "garbled ex
tracts." but on the contrary contain
the exact language used by
the mayor in his speech prepared and
written" by him in advance and can be
seen in his own handwriting by any
one who wishes to call at the Altars
office. The address other than those
portions given, is devoted to the
Woodmen and kindred societies.there
being no occasion for the mayor of a
city in his address of welcome to vis
iting representatives of a great fra
ternal order to go out of his way to
make such vicious remarks. The
bitterness of his language and the
manner in which it was .delivered
created a sensation at the time, and
was freely commeated on both by the
Attars and the public generally the

Some 800 lovers of the science pu
gilistic assembled at the Turner
Grand opera house in Davenport last
eveninjr to witness the go between
Tom Cox, of this city, and "Zeek"
Murdock, of Davenport. A 24-foot
ring was roped off oi the stage and
the men entered the ring at 10:20.
Bob Cox and George Rispen, of this
city, were in Cox's corner, Jim
O'Brien, and J. Maher, of Iowa City,
being behind i Murdock. ,Jim Swee
ney was chosen as referee, Fatty"
Kaible being time-keeper for Mur
dock, John McMahon for Cox, and
Tom O'Brien acting in official capac
ity. The fight was at catch weights,
both entering the ring at about 156
pounds. They were introduced by
Keferree Sweeney, and a moment
later time was called and they went
The Fight by Kounds.
In the lirst round the men were
cautious, both sparring for an open
ing. Cox landinjr lijrhtly on Murdock's
jaw. The round closed with a clinch.
The second round was a repetition of
the lirst. except that there was fre
quent clinching. In a rush. Cox
slipped and fell, the round closing
with light exchanges. In the begin
ning of the third round Murdock
aimed a heavv ri;ht hand blow for
Cox's jaw, but the latter avoided it
by a clever duck and planted his left
on Murdock's wind. Cox displayed
considerable cleverness, the round
ending in his favor. The fourth
round was characterized by Cox forc
ing the lighting, Murdock already
showing signs of fatigue. Cox
landed three straight times, "retting
away each time without a return. In
the fifth. Vox scored first blood by
planting his left hotly on Murdock's
nose. He was getting his man
winded, but took his time.
Only a Question af Time.
In the sixth and seventh rounds
Cox plainly had his man on the run,
landing almost whenever he pleased.
As the round closed Murdock was
groggy, the call of time saving, him.
The eighth and ninth were more ex
citing, there being some stiff punch
ing. Cox getting the best of it all
the way through. In the last of the
ninth he repeatedly forced the Daven
port man to the ropes landing right
and left on Murdock's face and body.
The tenth round ended the battle.
At the call of time Cox forced the
Davenporter into his own corner and
administered some hard punishment.
I here was some hard in-hghtinsr.
Murdock standing up well for a few
seconds but finally resorted to clinch-
in C iloinir so each time he was
crowded to the ropes. In this wav
he managed to stay until the call of
time though he was groggy and
conld scarcely hold up his hands.
Time was called for the eleventh
round but Murdock's seconds had
taken off his gloves and contended
that it was onlv a 10-round contest.
Keferee Sweeney would give no de
lusion until today, there being
dispute. Cox is well built, shifty -on
his feet and displays considerable
cleverness. He is cool in the ring
and from all appearanaes could put
up a good hard light with anyone.
The Mayor and Mr. Harris
hx-Supt. of Streets Harris desires
the Altars to say for him that the
statement appearing in the Altars of
a few days ago in reference to the
relations between the mayor and
himself was absolutely correct in
every particular and detail, and no
misrepresentation in any way. Mr.
Harris was surprised to see in the-
Union. ,J. Huntoon quoted as sus
taining any contrary view and having
seen that gentleman has secured the
following from him on the subject:
Rock Island III., April 1 There
appeared an article in the Union of
the 81, in which my name was used
setting forth certain facts as lo
promises made. I know nothing as
to any promises, but the letter refer
red to as I stated. I meant the Chi
cago letter of offer to Harris.
J. N. IIl'NToon.
Briefly, when Mr. Huntoon was
talking to the Union he referred to
the letter Mr. Harris had received
instead of the mayor's letter, which
nroves that the Anars has not mis
quoted Mr. Harris, nor is the latter
gentleman's memory as to facts
