.'.ot SiM-cefcafally Contratllrtril In a Single
Instanc Nothing Ill.lilen In the State
neuta Appearing In the Arg-ua and Names
The attempt of certain of the ile
votees of MeConoehie to work upon
the sentiments and sympathies of
citizens to win support on the
strength of Mr. MeConoehie having
leen throughout the campaign a
much abuseil man, is one of the most
apparent weaknesses of the slim de
fense that lias hoe it niailo of the
MeConoehie methods and tactics.
That MeC'onochie enjoys in the repu
tation of being a foxy politician and
rather; delights in being known as
Wily Mac." is as well known as the
mayor himself. His success in deal
ing doubly with his political friends
has involved a long line of betrayals
ami deceptions, but which have all
come up together to confront and
Nothing Huh Keen Withheld
In recounting the various acts of
duality and treachery on Mct'oim
chie's part, the Aunt's has not left
anything to the last moment when it
it may prove too late for contradic
tion. It commenced its exposure even
before the nominating conventions
were held, gnve facts and dates and
names in support of its assertions,
took each charge up under a certain
head and not one of them has been
successfully contradicted as to the
points at issue, although the mayor
has felt called upon to make mi ex
tended explanation. The Union after
the publication of the mayor's letter
gave evidence to the weakness of the
MeConoehie explanatory letter by
publishing what purported to be
statements from Sunt, of Water
works Mu iri n and J. X. Hun
toon calculated to uphold the
mayor's position, but both of which
gentlemen subsequently denied in
detail the assertions attributed to
them by the Union. As said before,
the Amil's has not reserved any of its
charges until the last possible mo
ment. It has given the names of all
those affected by the mayor's duplic
ity, in relation to his manipulat ion of
caucus and con vent ion. and his mu
nicipal appointments as affecting the
superintendent of waterw orks, super
intendent of streets and the health
comniissiouershi i. and in each case
has mentioned specifically the names
of the victims ami not one of which
has to date contradicted the allega
tions stated. What misconstrued
statement the MeC'onoehieitcs may
have reserved for the last moment
after having days and weeks to make
it. but which may be withheld for the
last issue of the MeConoehie organ. of
course none not in confidence of
Uoss Collins can fully say.
Ir4'ared to Stt.n.1 lv Charges.
Tor its own part the Alters can
say that to the best of its knowledge
and belief it has exposed nothing
concerning McConochie's political
treachery and trickery that was not
fullv investigated and which cannot
bo fully substantiated. It believes as
firmlv as it believes anything that
every charge preferred against Me
Conoehie as to his dual methods is
true and that only facts have been
started. e don t believe that any
stronger argument could be pre
sented in support of the charges of
double dealing on McConochie's part
than that of all the leading repre
sentatives and influential republicans
who supported him four years ago.
and two years ago, only one in the
person of I'liil Miller stands bv his
side todav. while Steve Collins and
Honev Johnson have been engrafted
into the service to make up for va
cancies, l his is the trio mat nas
charge of the MeConoehie interests
today. Those on the other hand who
turned their backs in disgust upon
hint are known for their work and
efforts for MeConoehie and the re
publican party in . times past. And
none of them will hesitate to give
his reasons freely for his stand in op
posing the man whose methods have

AkgI'9: I he report having been in
dustriously circulated to the effect
that Miller had purchased my sui-
port and influence for MeConoehie, I
desire to say that I am for Mr. Me
dill and the entire democratic ticket,
and I desire my friends to use their
influence for Mr. Medill and his fel
low candidates and for Fred Schroe
der, an aldermanic candidate. Mr.
Miller has approached me with in
ducements to work for MeConoehie
and has even gone so far as to insist
upon my accepting money, but I
want no more of MeConoehie. Twice
he has induced nie to vote for him on
representation that I would be re-

ALBERT D. HUESING.
ANNA BALL'S DEATH.
Sketch of the Ocinocratle Cwiicliditte for
Albert D. Ilucsing, the democratic
candidate for city clerk who will be
elected tomorrow, has proven in
every way a splendid nominee. He
has made an active and upright can
vass and has won many friends for
himself and the entire ticket. He is
possessed of every qualification es
sential for the proper discharge of
the duties of city clerk, of which he
already has considerable knowledge
and the party has has been fortunate
in his candidacy.
lie was born in Davenport in Atigut
lfUiO.removing w ith his parents to the
city when he was seven years vil.
He attended the public schools here
until he was 14 years of age when he
displayed nn interest in higher
branches and accordingly he was
sent to Milwaukee where he com
pleted a collegiate course. On re
turning from school he entered the
store of his father w ho was then con
ducting a grocery business and there
began his lirst active business pur
suit. From the grocery store young
Huesing went into the Peoples
Xational Hank as messenger boy
where his faithfulness ami strict ap
plication won for him the confidence
of his associates and though not 21
years of age he was promoted to teller
of the bank, a position that he tilled
most ably until about six years ago,
when he resigned to give his entire
attention to his insurance business
which lie had been working up dur
ing his leisure hours while in the
hank. In addition to the other posi
tions of trust that Mr. Huesing has
occupied during his business career
hi' was elected to the presidency of
the lirush Klectric Kight Co.. which
position he tiled 'for two terms, being
also -secretary of the same company.

Don't fail to vote.
The safest plan is to voteearly.
The (vfily sure plan is to cast your
ballot between the hours of. a. m.
and 5 p. m.
Take a reasonable amount of time
in marking your ballot. He sure
you mark it to suit you before leav
ing the booth.
To avoid all complications and
misunderstandings, the safest plan is
to mark the cross to the left of the
word democratic and to make as few
other marks on the ballot as is con
sistent with your preferences.
To vote the straight ticket all that
is necessary is to make a cross in the
circle to the left of the word denoting
vour politics. The safest and best
plan therefore is to make a cross in
the circle at the left of the word dem
ocratic. If you desire to scratch your tick
et, mark the cross in the circle as de
scribed, and if there are but a few
names to be scratched, mark a cross
in the square to the left of the candi
date for whom you desire to vote.
Another plan in scratching is to omit
the circle at the top and simply make
a cross in the square before each can
didate you want to vote for. To pur
sue this plan, though, one should be
guarded to omit no candidate whom
he desires to vote for, but put a cross
in the square lie fore the name of each
candidate for w hom he desires to vote
regardless of polities.
. 1). K Again.
S. D. E-," who seems more anx
ious about McConochie's election
than any other citizen except Phil
Miller just now, droped his signa
ture in the article he wrote tor yes
terday morning's Union. There is
very little in his argument, Irowever,
that is worth noticing, although his
insinuations were that the mayor has
stood lietween the city in the matter
of paving and contractors who have
tried to impose poor work on
the city. There is no one who
knows the falsity of this assertion
any lietter than Mr. MeC'onochie
himself. Indeed, had Mr. Edwards,
about whom he has been tied
dling about these misrepresenta
tions, not proven himself more of a
man than MeConoehie. he might have
met the charges on the part of the
mayor in a manner that would not
have been to the latter's credit, but
Mr. Edwards is not built that way.
The friends of the two men know the
reason for Mr. Edward's opposition
to MeConoehie, and they know equal
ly well of the falsity of any such
charges as apjear in the Union. They
know that Mr. Edwards is opposed
to the mayor because the latter has
proven himself treacherous to Mr.
Edwards in political matters.

The mission of Deputy Coroner
Eckhart to Taylor Kidge on Saturday
evening was for the purpose of hold
ing on inquest on the body of Miss
Anna M. Hall, who has been sick for
some two weeks past and who died
in bed while her folks were not in
the room. A jury was empanelled
composed of "William M. Hruner

J. V. Badham, W. B. Connelly and
George E. Spickler. Wild rumors
had been afloat in regard to sensa

brought out at the inquest but it fail
ed, to reveal such facts. Her father,
Preston Ball, testified to her having
been at work for Merritt Joble jn
Big Island and of himself having
been called to come to the home of
Thurman Starkey near there were
his daughter was lying sick. Wit
ness afterward brought her home,
where she died on Saturday while he
was dow n stairs working, he having
found her dead on his return. A
post mortem examination was held
by Drs. Matthews. Wiggins and

effect that her death resulted from

rendering its verdict in accordance
with the' facts.
Kveryt utni; Iromie a ranl Victory for
T. J. Medill.
After a careful survy today of the
political sit nation in all its v arious
phases The Aiturs comes to the con
clusion that tomorrow's election will
not only be a complete overthrow of
a minority influence that has sought
to retain the MeConoehie machine at
the head of municipal affairs, but
that it will be a veritable landslide.
Mr. Medill has proven himself even
a stronger candidate than was at lirst
anticipated and has conducted an
honorable and manly campaign, such
as will characterize his management
of municipal affairs after his election.
Let every democrat turn out tomor
row and make the victory all the
No Trm h in It.
For several days a report has boon
in circulation calculated a-nd intend
ed to create disscntion in the ranks of
the democratic party to the effect
that Miller had perfected a deal with
Magistrate II. C. Wivill for a swap of
votes for him for votes for MeCono
ehie. While it is not at all unlikely
that Miller would like to make such
a compact, as it is only on a par with
others attempted by the chief to am

of some one else, Mr. Wivill. how
ever, desires the positive statement
made th'at ho is a party to no such
deal or agreement; that he is work
ing for the entire democratic ticket
that he desires the success of the
whole ticket and countenances no
sacrifices of other candidates in his
behalf. He is ready to stand or fall
with the other candidates.
The I'nlou'a Correspondent.
The Union does dearly love to
jump at conclusions. Yesterday
morning it stated that the Aitors
has it that Honey Johnson wrote a
communication appearing in the
Union on the mayoralty contest
signed Citizen.'" The Aitors said
nothing of the kind. It stated that
Honey was one of the latest contribu
tors to the Union, but it did not men
tion his non de plume or say whether
his communication had been pub
lished or not. It has made no effort
to ascertain the identity of Citizen"
nor does it care who lie is or any
thing about him. As it said Saturday,
an individual who will attack another
under an. anonymous signature does
not amount to much. As far as Honey
Johnson is concerned, he submitted a
communication to the Union, but
whether it was lit for use or not, re
mains to be seen.
