BATTLE -WARM ONE Three Local Lawyers Already Ou for Republican Nomination for State's Attorney. KOHLER BOBS UP Iff MO LINE Bat aim Chances Are Dimmed Desire of Stir. Gamble to Con tinue at Circuit Clerk. There is to be a merry battle the coming spring- over the republican nomination for state's attorney. H. A. . vYtld. of this city, the present in combent. is said to have hunched his clo.-e ioJiticaI friend that he woulJ like to serve another term. This has had the effect of bringing to the surface other booms that have been nurse:! through the winter, in cluding those of J. K. Scott, city at torney of Rock Island; II. M. Schriver, justice of the peace here, and Axel Kohler, of Moline. .Mr. Scott is in his second term as city attorney, and has an extensive following in the repub lican partv in Keck Island. Rut he will hate to sp.it with Mr. Weld and Mr. h'chriver. while Kohler is said to bae the solid backing of Moline, thus making it a trifle shaky for the local aspirant-. "M-h river's main strength vill be in the country districts. He is a product of Kdgington township, having come to town only a few years ago to hang out his shingle. Gamble Against Kohler. At the coming county convention candidates are to be named for three oflices. those of state's attorney, cir cuit clerk ami coroner. i. W. Gamble, who for years has served as circuit cleik, does not wish to be disturbed. As he is a resident of Moline, where he is popular with his partv, either he or Mr. Kohler will be obliged to suf fer disappointment, as the conven tion would never tolerale candidates for these, two offices coining from one city. .Mr. famine has nan a similar state of affairs to contend with be fore, and his friends are firm in the belief that the difficulty will be ad justed in his favor again, but it must be recognized that there will be wag ed a warm contest in behalf of Mr. Kohler. whose supporters will con tend that Mr. (iambic should be will ing to make a sacrifice this time in return for the many favors 1hat have been shown him by his party in the county airi particularly in Moline, where aspirants for other oflices have been induced repeatedly to withdraw that he might succeed. AH In Slollne'a Hand. Whether the candidate for state's attorney is to come from TJock Island will depend to a great extent on bow Moiinc settles the claims of Mr. (iam bic and Mr. Kohler. Should the for inrr be put out gf the running, it is conceded by some of the leading par ty lights that Moline could demand the state's attorneyship nomination. In the meantime, the Messrs. Weld. Scott and Schriver can be expected to keep the local republican camp arous ed to the importance of their respec tive claims on the nomination. L. V. Kckhart. Sr., so far as has been heard, will have no opposition for the nomination for coroner, an office U: has filled for many vears. BLsebfxll Chat, President Holland, f the Three-K.ve league, has issued notices to all clubs to refrain from negotiating with Pa cific Coast league players pending the meeting of the national board of ar bitration at Cleveland Feb. 'S.'.. This order followed instructions from Na tional Secretary .!. II. Farrell. who stated that the Pacific league will re spect the national agreement com mencing with Feb. 4. Manager Hayes, of Davenport, sav s that he expects Williams, Stauffer. Crockett. Alperman. Ituby. Ives and Lyons back, of last year's team. With Monahan. infielder, and livers and Ho ling, outfielders, whom he has men tioned as being signed, most of the places are tilled. There are a number of other candidates up Mr. Hayes s'eeve, however, accord ins? to general belief. It is learned that Kd Kis. the t.-ilw.irr pitcher of 1'utTalo. Iowa, who won the championship of this vicinity for his team last fall by pitching two shut-out games in on" dav. has been signed by Manager Haves. Fi" friends says he is the hottest proposition in the shape of an amateur that has been discovered in Sci tt county, and predict great thinsrs for him. Chronic Rhnmitltn Cured Dr. II. B. Hettinger, Indianapolis, Ii;d.. pays: "For several months after spraining- my ankle I was severely af flicted with rheumatism. I finally tried Detchon's Mystic Cure for Rheu matism, and in four days could walk without my cane; two bottles cured me sound and well. I take great pleasure in recommending- the Mystic Cure to all who are afflicted with rheumatism."

TELLS OF HIS TRIBULATIONS It til way Conductor Describes Class of Pas senger That Make Ills Life a Burden. "The man who railroads in the f roll er country is supposed to be a hero an : martyr wrth his life in his hands all the time," said a well-known con ductor the other day after a hard run in which he had subdued a parcel f drtiirks and fresh village toughs. I loll yon,"' he exclaimed, "it takes patience and forbearance to keep from murdeiinir a man or fvvo on ov- ry trip. Our lives are constantly in danger from the perils of railroad. but when we have to stand the insults f toughs and drunks and be made fools of before an entire car full of people, patience almost ceases to be a virtue. We never know how soon s'-me fellow may pull a gun or throw a whisky Lottie. If we attempt to assert our plain rights we start a fig lit. which is not vie. We proba bly would come out ahead, but our passengers would suffer and might be endangered. "On my run today I had a fresh traveling man on board. He has been on Ihe road only a few months. I can always tell them. Like many another young fellow who has just started out. he considers it the very proper thing to get full. He has an idea that sells goods a ml makes him a traveling man. Well, it does not. A successful traveling man is as unlike one of these fresh ducks as water is unlike oil. This particular specimen immediately became funny. He talked loud for the benefit of the ear, and when 1 reached him he could not find his ticket. This is a favorite trick with such cattle. They think it Is funny and that it makes a guy of the con ductor. I had trouble with him all the way down, not becuuse he was quarrelsome, but because he was gabby. "Then the quarrelsome drunk who gets full in the city and starts home. There is always one in the crowd who is the fullest. The rest grade off from him down to the reasonably sober. The drunkest makes the trou ble and the rest take his part. Their favorite habit is to terrorize the pas sengers by flourishing pistols ami walking through the enrs swearing and cursing. The village tough and smarty with a little whisky in hini is not dangerous, but he must be hand le:! sometimes without gloves. It is n-t very dignified nor pleasing to a railroad train crew to have these characters aboard. In such weather as this it would not di to throw a drunken man out in the snow in the country, so we have to get along with them the best way we can until we reach his station. This may lie a civ ilized country, but you won't find a conductor on a local train out of Kock Inland who will niak.1 affidavit from personal experience." to it When Ton Have a Cold. The first action when you have a cold should be to relieve the lungs. This is best accomplished by the free ue of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This remedy liquefies the tough mu cous and causes its expulsion from the air cells of the lungs, produces a free expectoration, and opens the se cretions. A complete cure soon fol lows. This remedy will cure a severe cold in less time than any other treatment and it leaves the system in a natural and healthy condition. It counteracts any tendency toward pneumonia.

Mitchell Estate to be Offered $15, 000 for the City Hall Quarters. LEASE IS S002T TO EXPIRE Investment Would be Good One, Bat There Are Matters of Greater Import. An offer cf $13,000 for the property novv occupied as city hall and armory for military organizations is to be made by the municipality to the P. L. Mitchell estate. The lease held by the city is about to expire, and Phil Mitchell, acting for the estate, has offered a renewal on lerms cf $1,000 per year or the privi lege of buying. He asks $17,000. The council last night ordered that an of fer of $1.1.000 be made him. The dimensions are 80 feet on Third ivenue by 130 feet deep. The first and second floors of the main building are occupied by the city, police headquar ters on the first and the oflices of the mayor, clerk, plumbing inspector and the council chamber on the second. On the third there ate bulge rooms. rhe south part is but one story and is used as an armory by Company A ind the Naval Reserves. Would Make Improvements. In the event the city enters into a five-year lease Mr. Mitchell agrees on needed improvements, the main feat ures of which would be a new floor in the part occupied by the oflices of the mayor and clerk and setting apart in additional room on that floor. The building, should it be bought, would have to be rebuilt to adequate- y meet the requirements of the city. The police department has ling been cramped for room, the first floor ceil ings are too low, the city clerk must :ave larger quarters, and there arc numerous other points about the uiildiiig that makes it undesirable sis permanent home for the city. How ever, as an investment, if the citv is ooking for such a thing, the proposi- ion of Mr. Mitchell is one that is at tractive. Ihe site, too. is desirable, and should the city be content to nut up for years with the accommoda tions afforded by the present strue- ure, occupying it until it has gone into decay, and then replace it with a new building, the idea of making the purchase might not prove a bail one. Hut, as Aid. liohbins said, he felt that the city f Kock Island way old and rich enough to have a modern heme for its officials, and he wanted o ee erected a building that would ost at least $100,000. lie thought ar angements could lie made now for mrrowing the money required and that Ihe debt could lie paid off inside 10 years. More Important Things. Hut, if one to judge the present financial condition of the. city, it is not in shape to go into the investment business. There are the Milan bridges, iiimpiDg facilities for the waterworks and a new fire alarm, in which the inblie feels just now greater concern than in the tying up of a lot of money in a real estate deal. All public-spirited citizens want to see a city hall owned by the munici pality just as soon as it can be pro vided, but instead of speculating at the present time, there are matters of vital importance to the tax payers, a few of which are mentioned in the foregoing paragraph, that first should be provided for.
