The foregoing is the township tick
et presented by the democrats for t he
consideration of the voters at the
election that is to take place Tuesday
of th- coming' week. Thev are the
nominees of the regular democratic
convention presided over by T. .1. Me
d ill as chairman and .1. 1. Sevton as
secretary and held at Odd Fellows
hall, after the delegates had been
driven from Turner hall by the hood
lum tactics of John I. Looney. aided
and alwtted by the olice department
of the city of Hock Island.
The ticket furthermore has tht
approval of the town board of the
city, which passetl on the contest
brought on by Looney in an effort to
prevent t.he names of candidates ap
pearing ii the official ballot, and the
additional recognition as to its regu
larity of Judge K. ('. Graves. Of the
circuit court, who denied an injunc
tion prayed by George I'. Stauduhar.
Looney man,, at Geneseo yesterday.
The U'cision of Judge G raves yester
day is the hardest blow yet received
by the Iooney-repnblican combina
tion that has been seeking to dis
franchise the regular democratic
ticket ostensibly in the interest of
the Looney convention, but the rea
pnrxse has been to make sure of the
election of the republican ticket head
ed by William Kennedy, for supervi
sor, who wants to secure a seat in
the county board as a stepping stone
to the shrievalty nomination.
Men With Splendid Records.
The democratic ticket is composed
of men of recognized standing in the
community, men who can be depended
on to perform honestly and intelli
gently the duties of the positions to
which they aspire.
M. W. Rattles has been a member of
the county board before. His record
is there. It is the best argument in
favor of his reelection. Mr. Battles
is a taxpayer and resides on Seven
teenth street. He is one of the best
known citizens of Rock Island.
For many years he has been
active in the affairs of the Cock
Island .Industrial Home association
and was one of the promoters of the
Louis X. Bourdeau is resident of
the Sixth want and is a painting con
tractor. James 'IT. Lamont is fore
man at the Burlington freight house,.
while Edwin Ward, the third candi
date for assistant siqiervisor, is one
if the lest known residents of the
Seventh ward. He has served as street
commissioner and in other capacities
if public trust.
Perhaps there is no man in the city
better qualified for the office of as
sessor than George W. Henry, having
a thorough, knowledge or the intri
cate duties of the place through as
sisting the various incumbents of the
office in years past. Mr. Henry lives
n the Third ward, and enjoys an ex
tensive acquaintance through the city
John ('. Auld, the candidate for col
lector, lives at 1412 Sixth avenue. For
vears he was a conductor on the Rock
Island & Peoria railway, retiring from
railroad work on account of failing
health. He is deserving in every way
if the support of the voters of the
city. The ticket is a good one from
top to bottom good, clean men all
of them, and all shouH be elected.

It is a French story and hinges on
