The Judicial Election.
The judicial election on Monday excited
no interest whatever, and but a small vote
was polled.
In this city, John G. Glenn received

the law already says they may do. Grant
that they may do it, by borrowing money
and with it pay illegal city orders, and
thereby create a legal debt out of what is
now an illegal debt, or illegal form of debt.
Now the organic law of the city, Article
IV, Eection 4, says: "The city council
shall have control cf the finances of the
city, and shall have power within the juris
diction of the city, by ordinance: first, to
borrow money on the credit ot the city.and
issue the bonds of the city, therefore," etc.
Under the provisions of the law of
the state, in force July 4th, 1873, among
other things it is provided that "No oity
shall hereafter contract any debt without,
at the same time, providing for the annual
levy and collection of a direct tax suffi
cient to pay the interest and the principal
when it falls due.".
It is therefore the clear intent of the law
that no city can borrow money,as has been
done in this city on warrants, but must
borrow on its bonds and that in issuing its
bonds must provide for a "direct annual tax
sufficient to pay the interest and the prin
cipal when it falls due." To meet and
comply with this understanding of the law
Alderman Lundy has introduced the fol
lowing ordinance:
"An ordinance creating and providing
for the maintenance of a fund to be known
as 'Rock Island liquidation fund.' "
Be it ordained by the city council of the
city of Rock Island:
;Sec. 1. That in accordance with the
provisions set forth in See 4 of Article 4,of

separate from the taxes collected for gen
eral disbursement, or incidental expenses
incurred in the management of municipal
matters, and to be kept sacred and in
violate fjr the sole aud specific purpose of
retiring at the time of, or prior to matur
ity.the interest bearing bonds of the city,
there be assessed against the real and per
sonal property of the taxpayers, residents
within the corporate limits of the city ot
Rock Island, and oollected therefrom an
nually the sum of $6,500, until all bonds,
warrants or other evidences of municipal
indebtedness shall have been retired or
Sec. 2. That, after the passage of this
ordinance, each annual tax levy made
against the taxable property situated with
in the corporate limits of the city shall in
clude for liqidation fund the sum of six
thousand five hundred dollars, ($6,500,) and
shall be regarded as a special tax and be
collected with the general fund; and, on its
receipt from the tax gatherers by the city
treasurer, by him be set apart and re
linquished for no purpose except that set
forth in Sec 1 of this ordinance-
Resolved, That the president of the First
National Bank.Rock Island National Bank,
and the Peoples' National Bank be consti
tuted an advisory board, and that they be
consulted as to the investment of the liqui
dation fund or its disbursement, and that
the council will not retire or purchase any
bond or bonds without first having con-
ulted the advisory board, and that to

with the mayor ot" the city and the chair

The telegraph of this morning gives the
following account of a cold blooded mur
der which was perpetrated near the little
town of Gilson, Knox county:
On Sunday a tramp entered the house
of Charles Belden, at Gilson, this state.
The family, on returning from church.
found the house open. Search was made
and the tramp found m a corn held near
hy, who immediately opened fire with a
revolver, instantly killing Mr. Belden,
mortally wounding Mr. Charles McCowen
and wounding Mr. James Packerel in the
leg, also a boy named Keoter in the foot,
which will have to be amputated. The
whole populace is in arms and after him.
yet without hucccsh.
I. R. Wilder, a resident of Kuoxville,
arrived in this city this morning in search
of the murderer. He says that the fel
low is coming this way as he was seen in
the vicinity of Rio, Knox county, last
evening. He is described as being of
medium height about 5.8, heavy set;
broad, square shoulders; dark or black
curly hair; full dark beard; had on dark,
ribbed pants; dark brown coat; toes of
shoes or boots boxed and ribbed; bouts
or shoes "'run over."
Mr. Wilder says that on Friday or
Saturday night of last week this same
tramp burglarized a gun shop in Elmwood,
Peoria county.and carried off six revolvers
and one doublo-barrelled, breech-loading
shotgun. He was followed to Gilson by
the deputy sheriff, and there can be no
doubt but what this i3 the same fellow who

Fight Between Four .Brewers,
.Which Oiic is Badly Cut with
a Knife.
A fight occurred, between 11 and 12 o'
clock last night, near Wagner's brewery,
in which four brewers participated. The
names of the parties arc FraDk Weiss and
Jacob Mangel, on one side, and George
and John Mueller, two brothers, on the
other. It appears that the row grew out
of a quarrel between these parties, which
had taken place a fewdays ago. Since
then Weiss and Mangel were discharged
from Wagner's brewery, and lest night
they returned to get some clothes, and
while there commenced to quarrel
with the Muellers, and finally dared them
to go outside and fight. Outsiders quieted
the men, who were pretty drunk, and they
walked off. When George and John
Mueller started for home, however, they
again made their appearance and followed
after them. Somebody called out "'They've
got a knife," and at this the Muellers
stopped, picked up stones to defend them
selves with, and told Weiss and Mangel to
go home and cease following them. They
replied that' they would if the stones
were thrown away. John Mueller
dropped his and at that moment the two
men made a rush for his brother. He
joined in, and then the fight became gener
al. While all four were on the ground to
gether George Mueller called out, "Jim
cut!" and then Weiss and Mangel ran off.
George was taken to his home, near the
street car stables, and Dr.. Craig called.
It was then found tVat he had received an
ugly'gash, nearly six inches long, on his
left side; one on his shoulder, and another,
and the most dangerous, being the deepest,
on the right side. John also received a
gash in the back, Besides this they were T
bruised about the head and face.
Weiss and Mangel were arrested at the
Union House by Deputy Blackburn and
Policemen Metsch, Eosenfield.and Gorman,
and lodged in jail. They .are also badly
bruised about the bead and face. When
arrested both had bloody knives in their
They were brought before Justice Hawes
