Springfield, IL.

"Register" asserts that victory of Conkling, Whig, in mayorality election over Lewis, Democrat, by only 20 votes, engendered fear of impending overthrow in Springfield's Whig Junto. "Their principal leaders, Messrs. Lincoln and Baker, who were out on circuit, were sent for, and came, with other Whig lawyers. Accordingly, on Saturday morning, a desperate rush was made in each ward, by these Whig committees—Baker, Lincoln, Stuart & Co. all in the field."Register, 9 May 1845.
