PnxMdlnn Raul.. Into the Evenlng-What Brought About nmenwj' Xonilnatloo -Cost and the Committee oa Roaolatlons Sot Down t'poa The After Clop. , The Argus' report of vesterdav's proceedings of the republican county convention carried the proceedings up to the nomination of the candidate for treasurer. It was after 6 o'clock when this undertaking was linally accomplished, and it was 7:20 when the convention adjourned in the next thing to an uproar over the outrage ous and unheard of treatment of the committee on resolutions. For Treannrer. The next duty being the nomine. tlon of a candidate for treasurer, the following were presented. George K. Lamlicrt's name being withdrawn: P. F. Cox, by Delegate Hollistcr: Henry Vierich, by Delegate Morgan; uugu xticuonaiii, ty delegate Albert Johnson, ana rred Titterimrton. bv Delegate Johnson, of Edginrton. The first formal ballot resulted: Cox. 68: Vierich. 69; Tittcrington, 67; McDon ald , 32. here being no choice, a second ballot was necessary, which resulted Cox, 7; Tittcrington, 79; Vierich, nj; MclJonalU, 14. The third ballot was necessarv Mr. McDonald withdrawing. The result is appended: Cox, 78; Titter ington, 103; Vierich, 53. A fourth ballot was necessarv. with this result: Cox, 95; Tittering. ton, 122; icrich, 6. There was a shortage of votes, but Mr. Titter inn-ton got the mnior. uy oi me votes, nevertheless, and .i i i.i - . . Has ucciarcu uie unanimous choice of the convention on Delegate Hollis- tcr's motion. For County Superintendent. 1 he nomination of a candidate for county superintendent being next in order, these nominations were made: K. 11. McKeever, bv Delegate Mor gan; W. C. Hardiug, by Delegate loss: Charles Ege, bv , Delegate ircek; . J. Gilpin, by Delegate Ed Ionian, S. . Searlc, by Delegate Jackson: J. II. Southwell, by Dele gate Solander. Just before the ballot proceeded Candidate Harding appeared before the convention and asked to be heard. Being granted the courtesy he stated that within ten minutes it had come to his attention that a mes sage had eonie to the convention from Henry county reflecting seri ousiv upon bis character, lie men tioned his indorsements from Henry countv, and denied the contents of the message in toto. The ballot was then taken, result ing: McKeever, 82; Harding, 3(1 Ege. 38: W. S. I'rice, 1; Gilpin. 5; stearic, u; boulhwcll, 8. A second ballot followed: McKee ver. 86: Scarle. 83: Harding, 24 Gilpin, 3; Ege, 40, Southwell having vanished. A third ballot was taken and it gave: McKeever, 114; Scarle. 85 Harding, 11; Ege, So.

The convention had completed its work with the exception of hearing from the committee' on resolutions. Chairman Bennett stated that a reso lution had liecn banded him with th request that he present it direct to the convention and with the consent of the delegates he would do so. was a resolution expressive of the personal and jx.litical worth oi tne late Howard Wells, former chairman and late secretary of the republican county committee, expressing sor row over his death .and sympa thy for the bereaved family ia their loss, ibe resolution was, upon mo tion of Delegate Jackson, adopted by rising vote oi the convention. Then came the dramatic event of the day, the spectacular culmination of the series of entertaining incidents. As soon as the last mentioned resolu tion was adopted Delegate Jackson at once moved an .adjournment. Chairman Walker, of the committee on resolutions, was on his feet in stantly, as were other delegates in various parts of the house, remind- ng the chairman that the. committee on resolutions had not made its re port. "A motion to adjourn is not abatable," admonished the chairman. it must lc voted down before fur ther proceedings are in or- er." The motion carried. The Gest erowd was thunderstruck. The committee on resolutions had prepared a set of resolutions after being created by the convention for that purpose, and then to get such a cold snub at the bands of the con vention, was something almost in conceivable an unheard of procedure in political assemblies. Cold Snob of (iest. The object of the convention sit ting down on the committee was chicflv t choke off any endorsement of W. H. Gest's candidacy for con gress, as it seems from the resolutions of the committee the Truesdale reso lution died in the committee anyway and the preamble was merely an at tempted declaration oi republican principles and an attack on the dem ocratic party, the resolution as to Mr. Gest and the one tbat followed it being as follows: Resolved, That this convention recognizes that the services of the Hon. W. H. Gest, while representing the Kleventh district, of which Rock Island county formed a part, were of conspicuous value to the district and the nation; that we call upon him again to become a candidate, and we instruct our delegates in the coming republican convention of the new Tenth district to present his name as a candidate for congress, and to use all honorable means to secure his nomination. Resolved. That we notice with pleasure the candidacv of A. Bavliss, of Whiteside county, for state superintendent of public in struction, and ask our delegates to use their lest endeavor to secure his nomination. These resolutions were formallv signed by C. L. Walker, chairman of the committee, and 1-rank Kogers. secretary, but that was the last of them. The predominating influence m the convention had it understood that thev were never to come before the convention, and, as soon as Del egate Jackson's time came to make the motion, he had no difficulty in getting the eye of the chairman, who was looking for him, and his motion went. IIow the Shertiritnsinens Ended. The chief fight of the day was in the nomination for sheriff. Hemen- wav was slated for the nomination Molinc was ostensibly for a Moline man and stood by Kittilscn as lonff as he had a show, and then threw enough to the winner to have it to sav that it had a linger in the pie though this was the intention of the delegation from the first. The Atkin son-Eckhart combination announced yesterday, was made as the ballot progressed in hope of beating Hem- enwav, and as a last resort a combi nation was attempted with Kittilsen but Atkinson could not deliver the goods, and the First, Second and part of the other wards broke away anil went to Hcmenway. Tittering- ton was on the slate for county trcas- urer, Moline swung the convention for McKeever for county supcrin tendent, alter Harding by bis own bad break before the convention had destroyed his own chances. Pavne had a walk-away for the legislature and went around while the vote was being taken with a box of cigars un der his coat-tail which he sprung at the proper time.

It was a pitch ers' battle, and Andrews showed up in line I or mo. J be errors were few, but all of them were costly. For three innings Rock Island rolled up cyphers, but "old Home-run" Joe Katz got his lamp on the hogskin" in the fourth and cracked out a nice single. Then it was that 'Histcr" Zeis moped up to the plate and John son slammed one into him and bang" went the piece of ash in the Indian's" mitts and away over the right field fence it sailed for two Hags. Katz had in the meantime stolen a base and was pending pre liminary hearing for his deed, when he saw that bafl go over the fence. and started for home on a horse-trot. bringing in the first score. The fifth and sixth innings brought just the same old goose eggs, but in the sev enth "Doc" Sage came in with second and only other score for Rock Island and all account of Paddy Lynch's slashing 2-bagger in deep right cen ter. Lincoln 8 runs were made in the sceond, fifth, sixth and seventh WEDDING BELLS. King Merrily for H. K. Haley and MiM Mary Schantz.

Tat Wright Jompt Ills Contract. Pat Wright has made a great big fotd of himself. He is one of the best second basemen to be found in minor league, but he has queered himself for the future. Aftcrairreat deal of negotiation he signed with the Peoria team, which be joined He has since been playing ball with them, and has sustained his old time record. Ho is a good second base- man, a good base runner and an ex cellent hitter. But Pat has pumped the team and bas been black-listed He has returned to Springfield, where be will manage an independ ent team. He may make a few more dollars for the time being, but his move will end to his discredit. He is now a contract jumper, and no club will place confidence in his word Monev was advanced him and it is still owing to the club. Manager Bracket t naturally feels sore over the treatment aceorded him bv Wright, but it is only a question of time until the Springfield player will regret the move he has made. Peoria Tran seri pt.
