The Progress of the Election in
A BIG VOTE IS BEING POLLED.
! :;. Major Portion thereof Appear
to be for Mecllll Democrats Working
Karnetly all along the Line Some Sur
prises on the Tart of the Opposition.
It has proven a beautiful election
day, as far as the portion the ele
ments have contributed is concerned,
bringing out a big vote and inspiring
hope and contidence on the part of
those who began their campaign for
reform in city politics with the nom
ination of T.J. Medill. Jr., for the
high office of mayor of Rock Island.
At 8 o'clock this afternoon the fol
lowing vote had been cast in the dif
First ward. 320; Second, 4.52;
Third, 417; Fourth. 3G5; Fifth, 352;
Sixth, 340; Seventh, 31J.

As was expected, the opposition
forces sprang a number of surprises
during the day. the first of these
being a most contemptible falsehood
manufactured out of whole cloth and
appearing in the Union this morn
ing. The article referred to goes on
to describe what is termed 'a scheme
of the democratic gang to work in
bogus ballots." Then followed the
description of a plan that was used
in Chicago at the iast election to de
feat the ends of the Australian sys
tem. There was u ground what
ever for the publication of the ab
surdity in the Union, the source of
it no doubt being the fact that it has
been talked of on the streets as a way
of eefeating the purposes of the Aus
Today too. a number of scurrilous
and villainous falsehoods that no one
would dare father and reflecting on
Mr. Medill's character, were put in
circulation, they being equally as
false as the other stories that have
been given circulation by the Union
and privately to do him injury.
Working; the Corporations.
It has been apparent for several
days that driven to the last pitch of
desperation the MeConochieites were
seeking to work the corporations by
making certain overtures and pledges
that would be fullilled in the event of

such a plan would be carried out sue.
cessfully, however, but today there
has been abundant evidence to a sur
prising desrreo of the interest of the
V., H.'tc Q. and R. I. & P. railroads in
McConochie's election; indeed the
former road was kiud enough to do
him a favor heretofore unheard of
by a railroad, by holding the St.
Louis passenger due to leave Rock
Island at 6:40 a. m. until 7-15. in or
der to give the conductor and crew
the privilege of voting for the Mc
t'onochie ticket. With some of the
local corporations the same devotion
to the McConochie cause was mani

Last evening the report gained
currency thatja scheme had been con
cocted bv Met'enochie and some if
his underlings to capture the vote of
the' Davenport & Rock Island railway
company's employes on this side of
the river, by creating the impression
among them that the company con
sidered it to its interests that . Mc
Conochie be reelected. The report
had its effect among certain of the
men who were undecided in their
preferences and was working charm
ingly with some of the others when
it "got out, and the company's
officers being communicated with
and Assistant President Lardner
and General Superintendent Schait
ger at once took the necessary steps
to dispel anv idea tuat miglit prevail
among the men that the company
was attempting to influence tneir
votes, and this morning the under
superintendents were instructed to
notify tue men tnat tneir votes were
their own. Acting President Lard

have no interest in this election
either way. We have been treated
as well by the democrats as by the
republicans in Rock Island, and have

It is not often that a standard
drama can be presented to the public
of this city that is not more or less
familiar to the local play goer, but
one of the exceptions will be Modjen-
ka's presentation of Henry V lll.at the
Burtis this evening. Although this
play was produced in 1613 by Shake
sjeare himself, and had probably the
most varied career of any ot the im
mortal dramatist's pieces, yet it ha
not been given an elaborate produc

CLENDENIN'S REMOVAL. SUNDAY SCHOOL WORK.
Some of tbe Circumstances Relating to the
Uepoalng of the (ifnernl.
Gen. William Clendenin has been
formally removed from the command
of the Sixth regiment by Governor J.
P. Altgeld. It will be remembered
that when Gov. Altgeld some weeks
ago wrote the general politely invit
ing his resignation, it was the
same kind of a note he
addressed to Gen. Fitz-Simons.' Gen.
Clendenin, unlike Gen. Fitz-Simons,
wrote a reply. Here it is:
"Sir; Yours of the 7th inst., ask
ing my resignation because the best
interests of the service require it,
has been duly consider ed, and since
I have served in the National Guard
over fifteen years without previous
intimation of inefficiency or unfaith
fulness in any respect, and since I
can but regard your request a re
flection on the service I have render
ed, I beg you will advise me in what
particular my absence from the ser
vice would be to its advantage. Re
plain wilh me. If the reason of your
requirement is inefficiency, corrup
tion, or any other huniilating cause,
please let me know. It is fairly in
ferable that a change in organization
for the best interests of the service
calling for my resignation means
that the record of the service I have
rendered is in some way wrong. If I
were incumbering political office I
should feel differently. In being,
however, forced from" a service re
moved by it, nature from politics
that has interested and honored me
so many years, it seems only proper
that I know why I jjo and that no
cloud of any kind whatever should
obscure any part of my military
record I have during so many years
endeavored to keep clean and honor
able. To this Adjutant General Alfred
Orendorff replied that the letter
above given had been referred to the
governor, who had directed that in
asmuch as the general showed no
disposition to comply with the cour
teous request heretofore made no
good purpose could be subserved by
an extensive correspondence and if
the resignation regiment did not
come in a few days he would be for
mally removed under the provisions
of the constitution. To this Col.
Clendenin replied in substance that
"feeling in a sense accused, or that
the National Guard is being dragged
into politics, I do not conceive it my
duty as a soldier or a citizen to assist
in accomplishing the pretended
change in organization you desire,
anil rather than do so I prefer to hear
from you again."
The next time he heard from the
commander in chief of the state mil
itia in the following form:
State of Illinois, Executive
Office. Spkinc,fieli, March 30, 1893
To the Hon. W. II. Hinrichsen,
secretary of state, Springfield. 111.
Dear Sir: March 7, 1893. I directed
the adjutant general to notify Gen.
William Clendenin that it had been
determined that the best interests of
the service required changes in or
ganization which his resignation
would facilitate and he was requested
to tender same. I took this action
for the further reason that it was
evident to me that in his capacity as
brijradier jjcneral he did not dis
charge of the duties of that office,
and because the successful ad minis
tration of the same anil the inaugu
ration of certain reforms demanded
the change contemplated. March
23 a discourteous and insubordinate
letter was received from the said
Clendenin impugning the good
faith of the governor. Heing fully
convinced that the said Clendennin
is incompetent to discharge the du
ties of his office I hereby, in pursu
ance of the powers vested in me by
the constitution and the laws of the
state of Illinois, remove William
Clendenin from the office of brigadier
general in the Illinois National
guard, and declare his office vacant.

Advertising a Town.
There is nothing like advertising
to increase legitimate business enter
prises. This is a fact that will be
endorsed by most business men.
What is true as to individuals is also
true as to cities. It is true also as
tated by the St. Joseph. Mo., Ga
zette, which paper is urging that
municipality to expend money in the
judicious use of printer's ink, that
there are times when advertising
will do more than at any other time.
The time for Rock Island and her
sister cities to advertise is during
thw next six months, Illinois will be
visited by millions of people from
this and other countries, and this lo
cality has attractions that should be
made known to these millions.
Other cities in the west have become
imbued with the fact that if they
wish to keep up with the times, and
take advantage of the stirring events
of the Columbian quadro-cen-tennial
year. they will have
to let the world know of
their attractions. St. Louis heads
the list with a guarantee of $200,000
each year or five years, a total of a
million dollars to be expended in ad
vertising the city. Omaha's city
council has just passed an ordinance
appropriating $10,000 to be expended
in advertising the city in the eastern
papers. St. Paul and Minneapolis
have set about displaying their ad
vantages hrough the'eastern press,
and Denver has been appropriating
large sums of money for this same
purpose for several years. Topeka
has just had big display advertise
ments in New York papers, and Kan
sas City is making arrangements to
tell the people who visit this country
what she has to offer them. Spring
field our state capital is also taking
If there ever'was a time when ad
vertising would do a city good, that
time has come.
The Minister Was Deaf.
A deaf minister's clerk had handed to him
a written slip on which were the following
announcements which he was requested to
make: The new psalmbooks will be used
next Sunday. There will be a baptism of
infants next Sunday. By some mischance,
however, this clerk took it into his head to
reverse the order at the intimations. Ac
cordingly he began, "There will be a bap
tism of infants next Sunday." He had got
no further when the weak, piping voice of
the deaf divine was heard from the pulpit,
"And those who have not got any may have
them for sixpence each, at the manse; strong
backs, 18 pence." Cornhill Magazine.
