The S:!V-sf Way Out
This was the outcome of of last
night's conference between the Twin
City Columbian committee and the
endorsers of the original note under
which the lirookv" i ;'a"t was secured
by Messrs. Willi.iri .Jackson and S.
II. Velio. Tin determination
was not reached witliout mature de
liberation and coiisideral ion. The
situation was fully canvassed and
discussed. It was shown that with
the $14,000 note and interest due in
May the taxes of lS-', the paving
costs, the band stand and grailinx
note, etc., the indebtedness falling
due in May will beJfi'O.noo. This must
be met in some way. In the matter
of subscriptions to the capital stock
in the exposition association it was
reported that of the original sub
scriptions llock Island had secured
$35,000 ami Moline 10.000. makin-j;
a total of 45,0oo. Under the prop
osition to secure subscriptions of the
note sijrners for $l.o0:i ach of capital
!tock, Mr. (iuyer reported that in
Uoek Island all but three of the
siirners had subscribed themselves to
such an agreement, which with an
increase of ;.i0.i in C. II. Decre's
subscription and J,oOi in that of
Morris llosentield brought the total,
so far, up to between $G5.000 and
$70,000. "Mr. Moore reported that
while the papers for the note signers,
subscriptions had been in Moline
since the canvass was completed in
Kock Island, nothing had been done.
Messrs. (iuyer. McCabe. Moore,
Velio and Bennett were in favor of
making an effort to complete the
capital stock if possible, it having
been reported that if 75.0itO or ..
(Mi.i were secured. th' railway com
pany would increase its subscription
suiVicient ly on the 1 per cent. hais
to perfect tin- organization. Mr.
Vclie doubled his sii bscript ion on tin
spot, and Mr. Uennett said he would
raise his to $1.0n, if the other en
dorsers would do likewise.
Mr. Jackson expressed bis belief
that the exposition project miiiht a
well be considered at an end. So
much time had clap-ed n-w that he
feared some of the subscriptions
would be diliieillt to collect any

It is a'matter of jrreat satisfaction to ,
know that so many of the rcpreseu-j

their aid and encouragement of the j
enterprise shown their public spirit.
w hile it is not in any sense the fault of
the people of liock'l-land that it has

those furthermore who assumed ,
risks to put the jrrouiids in shape for 1
the Fourth of July celebration. By
their deeds the spirit of the men of
the twin-cities have become known.
WHAT DEFEATED GANNON.
The lufluriices Which AlTectetl 111 Chil
ean Ml-mloii AKplral Ions.
The Chicago Herald throws lifrht on
the facts surrounding the defeat of
Hon. M. V. Gannon's aspirations for
the Chilean mission as follows:
Members of the Clan-na-Gael so
ciety, not only of this city, but all
over the cou'ntry, are disappointed
because President Cleveland did not
apjoint M. V, Gannon, of Omaha,
minister to Chile. Mr. Gannon is
known as Mount Vesuvius" Gan
non. He is president of the Irish
National leajjne, of which Patrick
Egan was president w hen President
Harrison appointed him minister to
Chile. l)urinj- the last campaign
Chairman William Frank Ilarrity, of
the national democratic committee,
through his brother-in-law, William
Hare, of Philadelphia, and other Ir
ishmen here in New York, organized
an Irish annex to the democratic na
tional headquarters. Gannon was
one of the orators of this annex.
Mr. Harrison believed that Thomas
Carter, of the republican national
committee, was capturing all the
Irish, and it was to offset Mr. Carter
that the Irish annex was established.
All of Mr. Gannon's friends were in
the more, and immediately after
election day Gannon was boomed for
minister to Chile, lie had the sup
port of a wing of the Clan-na-Gael
society, and, more than all else, he
had the hearty support of Chairman
Almost Nttll Oiioe.
It came out today that Mr. Ilarrity
was so influential with President
Cleveland that the president was
about to send Gannon's name to the
senate, when John Devoy. of Chica
go, J. P. ltyan and Major John Hyrne.
of this city, and General Patrick A.
Collins, of Huston, heard of it and
opposed the appointment. Tele
grams protesting against Gannon
were sent by the basketful to Mr.
Cleveland. It was asserted that the
Irish National league existed only on
paper, and that it was used only for
political preferment. The protests
also spoke of Gannon's record in
Davenport, Iowa, ami the causes
which led him to move to Omaha.
President Cleveland was astounded.
He had relied upon the representa
tions of Chairman Ilarrity. The
president at once sent for Mr. Ilarri
ty ami laid before him the protests
against Gannon's appointment. The
president decided to hold it over and
await further developments. When
General Collins arrived in Washing
ton to receive his instructions as con
sul rencral to London he submitted
to President Cleveland letters from
Gannon's relatives protesting against
the appointment. This was the last
straw. Notwithstanding Mr. Harri
tv's protest, the president threw out
Gannon and sent in the name of John
1. Porter, of Tennessee.

St ronjj selections Made.
In the selections thus far made,
the mayor-elect is heartily to be con
gratulated. In every case natural
qualifications as well as the political
and geographical side of the case have
been fully and carefully considered.
In the choice of Michael H. Sexton
for the place of city marshal and
chief of police. Mr. Medill has made
a particularly excellent selection.
Where there was such a splendid
field of candidates it was not
an easy task to choose. All other
things 'considered equal, the mayor
was obliged to consider location,
and in this view of the situa
tion the strength of Mr. Sexton's
candidacy presented itself with more
convincing force. Mr. Sexton has
the advantage of a number of years,
experience on the police force, has a
splendid record to sustain him as an
officer, while personally he is a man
v. hose life is without a blemish. He
has made himself all that he is and
his friends are ju.-tly proud of him.
In the matter of superintendent of
waterworks, efficiency and experi
ence have been the guiding motives
of Mr. Medill's selection. Mr. Mur
rin has been the capable superintend
ent for live years, and his reappoint
ment will meet with the approval of
all classes of citizens.
Edwin Ward is just the man exact
ly for superintendent of streets.
Everv democrat will rejoice in his
appointment, while the citizens in
general will commend the mayor's
course in determining upon him.
Peter Sehlemn-.er. the new toll gate
keeper, is one of the old time demo
crats of the citv. tie is deserving oi
the recognition thus shown him as a
faithful and diligent party worker.

for the discharge of the duties.
