Formal Announcement of Can
didacy With It.
DECLA2E8 HE IS UNPLEDGED.
loWoaM Uk t
mm hn Hla-,
The wilT William McConochie has
declared his candidacy for the repub
lican mavoral nomination. He has
been looking for aa opportunity to
announce himself, and in yesterday
morning s union be hit upon it
through a straight bluff. In it he
seeks to create the impression that
he is a much abased, bat particu
larly, an aatrammeled candidate. He
challenges and defies the bringing to
him ol persons to wnom ne nas prom
ised favor in the event of his nomina
tion or election. He wants any of
these persons who have been alluded
to as composing the McConochie
slate to confront him wttn the facts.
Of course the wily Mac is much ex
pectant that any of these whom he
has taken into his confidence would
gire away the confidential relations
existing under such an understand
ing. A man who has been promised
the chief of police or chief of fire de
partment by McConochie would be
very apt to pnbliclv proclaim such a
condition. It will be remembered
that when McConochie first ran for
mayor he made jost such assertions
about being free and an trammeled;
he spattered and spouted and nU
tared defiance about the slate pub
lished in advance, bat when he went
into office the appointments were
made precisely as previously an
nounced. The same was true of his
second administration, and after his
entry upon it there sprung np a lit.
tie rebelling army of disappointed
lolk to whom be baa previously
made promises conflicting with those
he afterward recognized. And yet
in the face of all these facts relating
to his past acts of duplicity and the
revelation of adherence to a similar
course again, he has the audacity to
maintain in his bandav epistle:
And I wish to take this onnortu-
nity to say, once for all, that I con
sider the duties of a mayor othea
than those of parceling out citv
offices, and it I am to be a candidate
at all. I must be one free and on.
trammeled by any promise of office
both before and alter the nomination
otherwise under no circumstances
must I be considered at all." And to
add that "no candidate ought to be
asked or expected to fill any offices
until after election, and I for one
don't propose to do it."
Canning- Beyond CoampUM.
The canning of the. ex-mavor sur
passes imagination. He is nothing
if not foxy. Approaching only this
latest stagger to mislead the public
is the neat piece of work he is now
engineering on the street, in that
which he is working through rhu
Miller, one of bis elated appointees
as given Saturday night and which
is none other than the appearance of
Miller as an ostensible advocate of
the candidacy of ex-Aid. B. F. Knox.
Think of that! Can anyone imagine
Phil Miller "legging" tor trank
Knox for mayor in dead earnest?
There is no man in town whom Phil
Miller bates more than be does Knox
and he hates a good many bnt he
has made no concealment of bis otter
contempt for Knox, as the outcome
of the old volunteer fire department
Yet, the wily Mac realising that
Miller is a dead weight that must
nevertheless be provided for has
put him on the track of Knox.
And Miller is doing it.
And McConochie is unpledged.

Dr. K. It. Mlllar-a Tatt.
Next Thursday will be the occa
sion of Dr. K. B. Miller's regnlar
monthly visit to our city. For a pe
riod of more than three years he has
made these regular visits, and he has
had patients from every section of
this county who attest to his great
skin in the cure of chronic diseases.
Still there are others afflicted, those
who have chronic ailments from the
effects of which they have suffered
for years. It is quite probable that
they could be restored to health, so
that they could enjoy life and be hap
py, 11 proviaea with propor medicine.
As Dr. Miller has cured so many such
afflicted in tbis county, it is quite

by his treatment. Call and consult

BASE BALL PROSPECTS.
The Three Clttes to .1'alta la a BUoor
The proposition made by the
Davenport base ball enthusiasts to
the directors of the Rock Island
Moline club to form a tri-city team,
and accept the position offered by
the projectors of the league com
posed principally of Iowa towns, now
in course of formation, will undoubt
edly be fruitful of results, and from
present prospects we will have base
ball the coming season. As Daven
port took a great deal of interest in
the games played here last year, it
naturally shares with Bock Island
the outrageous treatment received
in the W estern association, and is
anxious to get into some league
which will insure the fans something
to keep their enthusiasm op.
Satardaj Ere tag's at eat lag.
A meeting was held Saturday even
ing at the Kimball house. Davenport,
when the preliminary steps looking
to the organising of a tri-city team
were favorably taken. The tri
cities were well represented and the
interest manifested was encouraging,
evidencing ample encouragment for
the success of the venture. Max
Ochs was made chairman of the meet
ing, and Chris tfchlegel secretary.
A committee composed of Charles
McHugh and Harry Sage, of Rock
Island, Chris Schlegel, of Daven
port, and J. D. Cady. of Moline,
was selected to attend the meet
ing to be held at Cedar Rapids
the latter part of the week,
when the organization of the league
will be completed. An appropriate
name suggested for the organization
is the Mississippi Valley league. The
cities which have signified a willing
ness to enter the league are: Du
buque, Clinton, Cedar Rapids. Bur
lington, Ottumwa, Marshalltown.
Galesbnrg and the tri-cities. The
league will be ran on as inexpensive
a basis as practicable, and each clab
will be governed by a salary limit of
probably fS'H) or f 700.
Will Altrmate Local Gassee.
Should the tri-city team be a suc
cess, which from present prospects
it will be, the intention is to alter
nate the home games with Rock Isl
and and Davenport, equally dividing
tbe exhibitions between tne two
cities. Rock Island has her park.
uniforms, etc., in readiness, and is
prepared to play ball at anytime.
The Davenport enthusiasts will com
mence hustling for grounds, and say
they can raise a sufficient amount to
erect an enclosure in a short time.
Another scheme advanced at the
meeting was to get np coupon books
containing 20 tickets procurable for
$5. The intention is to sell these
books instead of soliciting subscrip
tions to place the team on an oper
ating basis. The books will be
transferable and good for any game.
Harry Sage seems to be the unani
mous choice for manager. With
Harry at the helm is a guarantee of
a good article of ball, and a comfort
able position near the top at the end
of the season.
A meeting will be held at Mo-
Hugh's ticket office some evening

manner paid a glowing and touching
tribute to the deceased. The caskel
was then lowered to the crematorium
proper, the clothes removed from the
body, which was wrapped in a winding
sheet saturated with alum, placed iu
