Han. E. W. Hunt Uenrrally Endorsed for Representative While A. D. Knee ing Seems to Hire a Lend for . the Shrievalty Nomination Other Candi da ten I'nuettled. "It is a refreshing sign of the times to see so much interest manifested bv the democratic party in Rock Island county in the choice of preliminary caucuses," said Chairman VI. C. Mancker, of the democratic city-township committee, last night. '-It shows that not only here in Kock Island, but in Moline and throughout the county the democrats propose to have a in vfffiti Is done this fall and the eontesJMf"for preference at the hands of the party, indicate very dis tinctly that the nominations are not in any case this year to be empty honors." And Mr. Maucker fur nished an accurate forecast of the situation in these words, too. This is a year when democratic candidates at. the polls arc to lie winners, and worthy democrats arc seeking places on the ticket, not only throuirh loy- vlty to the party, but liecanse the en dorsement on the part of the party means success later on. Despite the stormy evening the caucuses were all well attended, and pood feeling combined with interest ami enthusiasm to produce the best results. While it is difficult as yet to forecast the outcome of the primaries in the matter of preference for candi dates, yet the interest about the en dorsement for representative and sheriff was so pronounced through out the county that from the absolute declarations made in many in stances taken into consideration with the complexion of the delegates selected in. others afford a general idea of the prospects , which are that Hon. E. W. Hurst will have practically no opposition for representative, while A. I). Huesing is in the lead for sheriff. Five out of the seven ward s i n Kock I stand declared for these two candidates, and the other two are lielieved to favor them. In Moline anil South Moline the sentiment is all for. Hurst, ami the race lictween Davis ami ' Hcers for sheriff is so even that it is difficult to determine which has the advantage. From the out of town precincts heard from Mr. Hurst seems to lie the gen eral favorite, while Mr. Huesing is not far lichind hi nr. The Rot'k Inland Canrasr.
