A merciful providence will spare
Mayor McConochie a painful predic
ament tomorrow by defeating his
third term aspirations. With the
conflicting promises and pledges
made by him: not only as regards
after election appointments, but on
questions of public policy, he would
hnd himself in a much more embar
rassing position than he has so far,
were it possible for him to be elected.
To show how far oft the McCono
chieites are in their calculations and
with what faint hearts they are work
ing, it need only be.: said that while
they are begging for support up town
under the representation that the
three lower wards are for McCono
chie, they are peddling it about down
town that McConochie has a cinch on
the three upper wards. One repre
sentation is as reliable as the other.

entire democratic ticket as follows:
For mayor, Henry Vollmer, 2,650;
James R. Nutting. 1,355. For city

Eleventh and Twelfth streets, com
mitted suicide by shooting himself
through the temple, at 5 o'clock this
morning. He formerly resided in
Moline and was about 45 years of
age. lie went into a closet in his
house at the hour stated this morn
ing where he committed the rash
act. Family and financial trouble
are assigned as the cause.
The Union had a sivell yesterday
morning because it had been repre
sented in the Seventh ward that Ed
win Ward was to be street superin
tendent in the event of Mr. Medill's
election, and that some money was to
be expended in the Seventh wan!
where McConochie' s neglect is partic
ularly apparent. Mr. Medill has given
no assurances as to who will be his
street superintendent, and if he had
done such a thing, he would not have
promised it to two different men.
this much may be said, however.
that the present street superintend
ent wilt not remain and that the Sev-
nth ward will not be considered of
minor consequence simply because it
borders Moline and because one of its
indidates for alderman works in
How the Police are Attending;
As an evidence that ' Phil Miller
himself realizes that his department
has sadly run down in efficiency and
ilso that he is making all kinds of
Kickers and promises, a case inav be
ited down town where he approach
d a citizen and asked him who lie
intended to support for mavor. The
hief upon being informed that on
the Sunday evening previous w hen
le and a collide of friends were down
town electioneering, a large number
of chickens were stolen, at once got
in earnest hnd agreed to make good
the loss of the chickens but also do
something besides financially for the
good of the cause if the person ad-
Iressed would work in support
the McConochie regine. And
Miller boasts that he isn't doing
I.ot to l-:xi!ain.
Miller is kept busy these (lavs try
ing to explain why things arc thusly.
Among other matters that need an
xplanation at his hands is that when
the house of George Aster was rob
bed on the night of the Hennepin
anal demonstration, and the chief
was notified later mat ine diamonds
and jewelry stolen could be found at
a certain place, why he refused to
go there and find them. And also
why the chief refused to search the
house of a certain man in that part
of town who afterward disappeared.
It will take considerable or t he chief s
bland assurance to explain matters of
this kind away. While the Union is
getting its communications it might
be well for it to secure one from Mr.
Aster on this question.

Miller's Love for the First Want.
The old saying that circumstances
alter cases was perhaps never more
strikingly illustrated than by the
manipulation of Chief Miller in. his
present endeavor to square himself
and the McConochie contingent with
tne people. While he is racing
around down town making promises
and begging the suffrages of the
people who reside in the slough dis
tricts he forgets his sympathetic re
marks to them last spring when the
high water threatened the destruc
tion of hundreds of homes. When
appealed to for protection, instead of
making arrangements for their relief
thev were met bv the blunt reply
from the chief of police that they
had no business living in the slough.
Although they are saying but little
they have not forgotten the kind re
marks of Mr. Miller.
