Death of an Old Resident
Yesterday morning at 9 o'clock occurred the death of Mrs. Mary J. O'BRIEN, at the family residence, 523 West Eleventh street, the deceased being eighty-three years of age, having been born in Kilkee, County Clare, Ireland in 1807. Mrs. O'BRIEN was an old-time resident of Davenport, settling here in 1848, and this city continued to be her residence until she died. She leaves six children to cherish her memory, they being Hannah, Kate and Mrs. J.C. O'BRIEN, of this city; Mrs. E.E. MULICK, of Omaha; William, of Netherland, Col.; and John, of Taylor Falls, Minn. The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock tomorrow morning from St. Anthony's church, the interment being in St. Mary's cemetery.

The Bar Convention
Ward caucuses may take lessons of the Bar convention of this judicial district, which met this afternoon to nominate judges. The wire-pulling, hair-splitting tactics employed would do credit to any New York ward caucus. Personal preferences were made paramount to ability, and every other claim. Clinton county was determined to nominate Lyman Ellis, and to accomplish this sacrificed everything and everybody; and the tricks and juggling brought into play succeeded in nominating him in place of HOWAT, and L.M. FISHER in place of WATERMAN. After that there was no contest and Judge BRANNAN of Muscatine was nominated without opposition. Numerous members of the bar not delegates are very much incenses at the disregard shown to the resolution passed by the Scott county bar on the part of their delegates and say that the matter will be carried into politics, and straight-party candidates nominated. When men of the proven judicial ability as HOWAT and WATERMAN are thrown over for untried men, mererly on personal grounds, it is time that the matter be placed in the hands of the parties, and the Bar left out of the question.
