RECORDS COMPLETE Secretary George P. Studuhar on the Stand This Morning. Offering of proof in support of its title to place on the November ballot tor its county nominations and the an nulment of those named at the con vention of J. P. Looney was begun by the regular democracy before the re viewing board at the county court room this morning. The contestant, Looney, rested his case yesterday afternoon, after a weird harangue in which once more he re counted his struggles for political ex istence. It was the same story of his life that he has been relating when ever the occasion permitted for sev eral years, having no relevancy to the question at issue before the board. George V. Stauduhar, secretary of the democratic county committee, was on the witness stand the whole of this morning, identifying the records of the two meetings of the county committee. n May 1 and May 27. and those of the convention of the latter dale at which delegates to the state convention were chosen, the commit lee on the 27tn having ratified and indorsed the action of the officers of the committee in call ng primaries in the city of Hock Isl and enlarged the scope of the conven tion of the afternoon of that day. Complete It mini lit Kvlrteoce. Mr. Stauduhar had a complete rec ord, showing the names of those in at tendance as committeemen at the meeting of the committee and the del egates in the county convention NEW SHOPS TRAIN TO BE TAKEN OFF ON MARCH 30 In the Meantime the Company Allows Uniform Fare of 5 Cents to Men Residing Here and in Davenport. The committe appointed by the New Shops employes whose homes are in Rock Island and Davenport to call on the general officers of the Rock Isl and railroad at Chicago to protect against the charging of fare on the train on which they are conveyed to and from their work has received their reply. The company agrees to a uniform fare of 5 cents each way from Daven port and Rock Island, a reduction of 10 cents per day in favor of the em ployes living on the other side of the river, but announces that March SO next the train will be discontinued as Tar as Rock Island and Davenport are concerned. After that date it will be run between Moline and New Shops only. No fare will be charged, the same as now. The purpose, of the com pany is to induce the men to live closer to their work. It is a move obviously in the interest of Moline and East Moline. There is a petition of protest being circulated among the business men of Davenport. A committee from the city council there will call upon the officers of the Rock Island road at the meeting of the stockholders that is to he held in that city Thursday of this week and seek a revocation of the order charging fare to the men living in that city who are employed at New Shops and ask for the continuance of the train. It is claimed there are 300 men living in Davenport now working at New Shops. PERSONAL POINTS. at II. O. Rolfs has returned from St. Louis. .1. W .Oavanaugh is in Quincy on business.

' l!rn n l'ulitit-al l-tliol. The greater pan of the session of yesterday afternoon was occupied with the cross-examination of Looney and Pat Mullane. his leader in Moline. The only evidence from the Ixwiney Mde was offered by Iooney himself and Mullane. Ioney testified to the holding of the caucuses in this city and Mullane to those in Moline held in ac cordance with the calls of the county committee at the meeting of May 12, delegating the power' to calling the ward meetings on different nights to the ward committeemen on their post ing notices in the vicinity of the p'aces at which the caucuses were to be held. Uoney knew that there had been cau cuses in all the wards of Rock Island. itu lu' attended only one of them in l e t son. He diil not know who partici pated in the caucuses outside of the Fifth ward. However, notices for the folding of all had appeared, some of Mum in the Daily I'nion. but he could u't furnish any proof that they had i'ver taken place. (In cross-examination Looney maintained it was not ma rial as to the numbers present at either a caucus or a convention. One voter was enough, providing he met ;ti accordance with the calls. It was not required even that official notice ! given. Custom made law. in the opinion of the witness. Here the I.ooneyites rested their case. l ooney reiitr n "-ne.

Mr. Kenvorthy. in expos ing the methods followed leading up to :nd including the Looney convention of Aug.

Could ."Not I'leml to Frlouy. Walter has just arrived 10. While he is guilty of arson, having confessed to setting fire to nine barns in Moline during the past summer, the law would not permit his pleading guilty to a felony, and the only alternative was in bringing him in the county court to answer to a misdemeanor, petty lar ceny. The boy stole the $( yesterday morn ing after having set lire to the barn ?A lhe iFive Points grocery, entering the store from the front when the clerk ran to the back yard attracted by the smoke issuing from the barn.
