majority as would be the sensation of
In the Sixth ward the McConochie
ites put forth their most desperate
efforts to hold their own, and while
they succeeded in holding the ward
by a scanty majority and defeated
John Kanosky, they did so by throw
ing out hallots on which they consid
ered there was ground for a dispute,
and it is believed the final otlicial
count will iot only show Mr. Kanos
ky's election, but" give the ward to
IJiK Vote Cant.
The election brought out the heav
iest vote ever cast in Kock Island in
a municipal election, the total being
JJ.li'5, although the vote of thecity on
president last fall was :i,197. Two
years ago the total vote on the head
of the ticket was 2,705. The com
plete returns at hand give Mr. Medill
19 majority over Mr. McConochie;
elect Mr. Huesingcitv clerk bv 41 over
Oapt. Hugh A. McDonald, while
for city treasurer C F. Lynde gets
22) majority over J. M. Huford. W.
F. Schroeder is elected police magis
trate by 173 over II. C. Wivill. On
the tow nship ticket F. M. Sinnet and
Charles Oberg are elected assist
ant supervisors over F. V. Staas
sen and lPau Thiesen; J. H.
Cleland defeats J. li. Johnston for as
sessor by 70. Edward Uauersfeld
made a uyat run for collector, snow
ing his opponent, S. S. Hull, under,
by 15;i votes. The republicans elect
ed David Flawes and Harold A. Weld
justices of the jn-ace over Peter
Schlemmer and H. A. Baldwin,
while L. V. Kckhart, Cornelius Mar
tin and C. E. Evans are elected con
stables. The democrats therefore come out
of one of the most exciting political
strifes ever known here with Hying
colors, and the splendid achievements
of a good day's work. They have
elected the mayor, city clerk and
township collector, three of the most
important offices, to say nothing of
what they have done on the alder
manic ticket. The following tabula

The results of the aldermanic elec
tion crive the democrats five out of
the seven aldermen elected, with a
possibility of six. The democrats
elect William Roth in the First, of
course, who had no opposition; Fred
Schroeder in the Second, re-elect
Alderman Dan Carken in the
Third, elect W. C. Maucker in
the Fourth, Robert Kuschman
in the Fifth, while in the Sixth there
is reasonable ground for a contest,
the outcome of which would be very
apt to be the seating of John Kan
oskv. Without Mr. Kanosky, how
ever, the democrats will seat live out
of seven of the aldermen, which with
three holdovers, gives the party eight
of the members composing the next
aldermanic body. The results of the
balloting for aldermen in the differ
ent wards is as follows:
