THE AIIGUS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1904.
AWAIT A DECISION
Court Fapec to Dfurraln on h
Merits of the Democratic
AN ADJOURNMENT IS TAKEN
County Clerk Hubbard Having Busi
ness Engagement Out of the City ,
A derision in the democrat ic contest
for place for its county ticket on the
ballot for the November election will
te rendered tomorrow probably. The
court, composed of County Judge E,
E. Parmenter, County Clerk H. B. Hub
bard and State's Attorney H. A. Weld,
held a session last evening, after the
conclusion of the final arguments, aao"
partially reviewed the evidence sub
mitted. Mr. Hubbard, having an engagement
that necessitated his absence from, the
city today, an adjournment was taken
until tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock.
County Judge Parmenter stated today
that it was hoped to be able to dis
jk)sc of the matter after another day's
review of the questions at Issue be
tween the contending parties. The in
terest that is felt in the outcome of
the contest was made manifest in the
many inquiries as to the result that
have been made today, not only
throughout the city, but in telephone
messages from the county outside.
In the final arguments yesterday af
ternoon the Iooney jde was present
ed first. Attorney Adair Pleasants hav
ing the opening. His statement be
gun in the morning was devoted
chiefly to an attack on the
method of procedure adopted by the
regular democrats at the committee
meetings and convention, charging that
t he whole was "tainted with fraud," and
making other imputations on those
identified with them. Tracing the his
tory of the part Iooney and his co
horts played during the various stagc3,
he contended that the law was entirely
on their side. The committee meet
ings and convention of the regular
democrats were "pacKed." he charged.
S. R. Kenworthy, C. B. Marshall and
C. J. Searle followed for the regular
democracy. Mr. Kenworthy, at the be
ginning, said that he had failed to
understand that gentleman's relation
to the case until he heard Mr. Pleas
ant's statement to the court just con
cluded, pointedly referring to the fact
that the men who employed him mani
festly did not have sufficient confidence
in him to permit him to conduct the
examination of witnesses. The re
flections that had been cast by Mr.
Pleasants upon the character of the
co-nmittee meetings and conventions mt
the democratic party of the county
were refuted by displaying the roster
of the committeemen that had attend
ed the meeting at the Uock Island
house on the morning of May 2G, and
that of those who attended as dele
gates to the county convention of the
afternoon of the same day at the Tur
ner hall, and the second convention at
the court house June 30. In sup
lort of Mr. Ken worthy's represen
tation that they were the sub
stantial men of the county, men who
loved their party and were demanding
just recognition for it over the claims
that had been put forth by a banditti
that were attempting to gain control
of the machinery of both parties to
jittain selfish aims.
Hon I'ruitnpr Niinirn.
Where were the names of the men
that were said to have sat as delegates
in the convention that nominated the
Looney ticket? They were not in evi
dence before the court. He reiter
ated that the other side dared not pro
duce their names. There was no fac
tional strife in the democratic party in
Hoek Island county. The democratic
party was united. There was a so
called faction that was responsible for
the present "on test, and the body, soul
and breeches of that faction was J.
P. Ixjoney. The democratic party to
rid itself of this control, was forced
to resort to the methods that were em
ployed, the calling of primaries in the
city of Rock Island in order to secure
a fair expression of the party, and the
ratification of this action by the second
meeting of the county committee. The
disgraceful scenes enacted at the city
township convention ol last spring by
Iooney and his followers at Turner
hall united the democrats as they had
probably never had been cemented be
fore to the end that their affairs might
be placed in the hands of trustworthy
leaders men who were guided by the
will of the party and who were not
constantly employing trickery to pro
mote their personal ambitions. Mr.
Kenworthy concluded with a logical
argument from a legal point, showing
that there was no law in the land that
would sustain the opposition.
Whrrr Rral Fraud l.lr.
Mr. Marshall in his speech resented
the reflections of Mr. Pleasants on
the personnel of the democratic con
vention as one of the men who com
posed that body. He denied that
there was fraud at any stage of the
proceedings of the county democracy.
However, he was content to have
the reflections emanate from one who
stood alone on the high moral plane
that had been constructed for him
for this particular occasion. It should
not take long for one who had heard
the testimony that had been offered to
the court to determine where the real
fraud was. The evidence was there
for the court to peruse. Tb democ
racy had nothing to conceal, either in
documentary proof or in the names of
the men who spoke for it in committee
or convention. It was willing that the
facts be brought forth In the fullest
extent. In ridiculous contrast was the
evidence adduced by Looney and his
alleged faction. There was absolutely
nothing that was entitled to serious
consideration. It was easy to make
claims, but to prove them up by rec
ords and the testimony of competent
witnesses was another story. Looney
had failed utterly at every point in
the' "proceedings before the court to
establish wherein he was entitled to
be recognized as the democratic party
of Rock Island county.
' KlKht of Good CilizrnMblp.
Mr. Searle in his address said he
felt a deeper interest in the
contest than one who had been re
tained as an attorney to appear for one
of the contending sides. He was more
deeply concerned as a citizen. It was a
question the import of which the court
should not lose sight of. Not alone
the welfare and future of the democracy-
of the county, but of the republi
can party as well, was at stake. When
a county is confronted with the remark
able phenomena, as Rock Island had
been during the past few months, of one
man seeking the control of both politi
cal parties, it was high time that tile
good citizenship of the county assert
itself. The lack of a primary election
law was at the bottom of all the trou
ble politically into which both parties
in Rock Island county bad been plung
ed of late. It would be well for the
court, in its deliberation on a verdict, to
take cognizance of public sentiment in
the community during the past year
with reference to political history.
Right never failed to triumph. A man
or men who were right did not have
to exert physical force to gain a hear
ing before a political convention, yet
the city had been presented the spec
tacle of a desperate band forcing
delegates representing the seven wards
of Rock Island who had assembled
peaceably In a hall to carry out the
wishes of their party to withdraw that
they might transact their business un
disturbed, i ; ' H
Would Have llnd llrnrlnK.
Mr. Searle said that if there were
Looney delegates appointed to a demo
cratic convention, as it was claimed
there had been, they shouldfhave pre
sented their credentials at Turner hall
on the afternoon of May 20. True, it
was necessary to have a ticket of ad
mission until the delegations had been
seated. This plan had been adopted
to prevent the crowding by spectators
of the seats assigned for the delegates.
This was no unusual proceeding. Other
conventions had done it. Other parties
had done it. The place for Ioney to
have brought his contest, if he had one,
was before the credentials committee. I
That was what this committee was'
appointed for. He pointed to the ac
tions of the state and national com
mittees of both political paTties in the
settlement of contests by the prepara
tion of temporary roll calls, bringing
the case down to where it applied to
the Rock Island county convention.
Looney could have had a hearing, but
he knew he had been fairly defeated.
He had lost in the committee meeting
of the morning of the day of the con
vention. He was able to muster only
13 out of a total of 49 votes in the com
mittee meeting. The democracy of th
county had made the discovery that
his methods were not such as would
be beneficial to the party welfare.
Iooney dared not come before the
convention in a test of strength for
the reason that le Knew that he was
overwhelmingly outnumbered. Review
ing briefly the ev'dencr that had been
submitted by both sides. Mr. Searle
failed to see where l.oonoy had a leg
to stand upon.
Ilnrr More the Mory of III l.lfr.
The last, argument was by Looney
himself. With slight variations, it was
the story of his life that he has deliver
ed no less than a half dozen times in
the past year. He had been pursued
and villified. but never had a chance
to tell his story. It was a long one.
extending over a period of 12 years'
of his residence in Rock Island. He
would like to tell it to the court. 1
but it would occupy too much time. He
had been honest and never had know
ingly wronged a person in his life. He
had been making an honorable fight
against a deep-laid conspiracy of cer
tain persons to maintain the control
of the affairs of the democratic party
in Rock Island county.
A C'OBtrant in Arfcumrat.
The attack made by Looney's coun
sel. Adair Pleasants, on the represen
tative body of democrats in the city
and county of Rock Island was a sub
ject of comment in the court room dur
ing the course of the arguments, for
it proved a source of surprise to those
who know Mr. Pleasants, that even
under the stress and strain of strenu
ous conditions and circumstances sur
rounding him, he should have bee
guilty of such language. None should
be so narrow as to harbor ill toward
an attorney for the part he plays in a
suit or proceeding in behalf of his
client, and while the earnestness and
sincerity of the attorneys for repre
sentative democracy and beyond
that, clean politics was in nota
ble contrast with the part Looney's at
torney was taking, even at that it was
not supposed that the latter would
travel outside the records to assail the
good faith of the other side. It would
naturally be supposed that Mr. Pleas
ants appearance in the case was to
represent a client and see that his case
was properly conducted within the re
quirements of law and the rules gov
erning the sitting court. Instead, the
client ran the case, and to Mr. Pleas
ants was simply left the duty of speech-
making. The client having failed
to build a case on "his own part,
all that his attorney coold do was to
"throw it into the. other side."
When Mr. Pleasants declared that the
course of the regular democracy in
Rock Island county in the proceedings
that have led up to the present con
test was tainted with fraud from end
to end. he slandered every good dem
ocrat in the county of Rock Island that
had participated in those proceedings.
And at one time or another since the
county committee meeting of May 12
this has involved a good many pretty
reputable democrats, as may be con
clusively proven by reference tp the
records either of the county commit
tee meeting of May 20, or of the coun
ty conventions of May 26 and June 30.
It will need hardly be said
that there was not a single
instance where there was the
slightest thought of fraud or unfair
ness on the part of those directing or
participating in the proceedings at any
stage. On the contrary, the cardinal
idea all the way through was to resist
fraud and safeguard against it and to
Quite different from the light in
which Mr. Pleasants appeared were
the relations that Messrs. Kenworthy,
Marshall and Searle bore to the con
troversy. Indeed, Mr. Searle seemed
to express the attitude of his asso
ciates as well as himself when in open
ing hi3 argument he said that he was
more interested as a citizen than he
was as an attorney. And the rejoind
ers of Messrs. Kenworthy and Marshall
to the reflections that Mr. Pleasants
had cast upon the proceedings in which
both had participated, showed how
much at heajt they had the true dem
ocratic side of the case. Three such
speeches as were made in the county
court room yesterday afternoon by the
attorneys for the representative democ
racy of Rock Island county, and
against unfair methods in politics gen
erally, have not been heard in the
court house for some time. Each dis
tinctly different in its character, yet
each covering truthful phases of the
evidence presented and the political
situation affecting not only the demo
cratic, but the republican party in
Rock Island county, all were of the
eloquent, convincing character that
come from men inspired by the right
eousness of the cause they represent.
In no sense could such lines of reason
ing be construed as the utterances of a
hired attorney without interest in the
case beyond the desire to see his
