Meeting are being quietly held by
some of the leading tax-payers of East St.
Louis with a view to getting at the bottom
facts about the city's finances. The receipts
of the treasury for June were the largest
for anyone mouth tiuce East St. Louis was
settled and since Mayor Winton and the
so-called retorm element of the council
came into office at least f 25,000 has been
handed in by the tax-payers. And yet the
police and other city employees remain
unpaid, and the officials insists that there is
no money in the treasury. With the long
winter nights coming on, the police force
has been reduced to eight men, Bnd there is
no adequate protection against the thieves
and marauders that infest the neighbor

The very latest style of confidence
game is the baby racket, which was played
on a Chicago merchant who came down on
the C. & A. to witness the Veiled Prophets
and Trade's procession. The trick was
played by three young men who boarded
the train at Chicago and left at some point
unknown to any of the passengers. The
Chicago man had a very fine diamond stud
adorning his shirt front. This was not the
last thing the confidence men saw and he
was soon "marked." Shortly after the
train left Springfield one of the young men
walked forward, carrying a laughing baby
in his arms. Saluting one of his "pals"
the confidence man remarked what a heart
less thing it was to abandon 9uch a pretty
child. The accomplices stood up and in a
few moments the Chicago man was on his
feet chucking the infant under the chin and
playing peek-a-boo and tootzie-wootzie. Tho
little thing laughed in great glee and tho
Chicago man played monkey while the tem
porary nurse hell up his charge for the
admiration of tho crowd and incidentally
passed his hand under tho child's clothes
and over to the Chicago man's Bhirt bosom,
which was soon relieved of its headlight.
The man with the child then started back
"to get a drink of water" and soon returned
the cbihl to its mother, from whom the
"nice gentleman" had borrowed it to show
his wife in tho next car. Like all Chicago
men, this particular visitor from the city by
the lake "squoalod" and modestly requested
that tho detective forco be laid off for a
day to hunt up his diamond. On a des
cription, Tucker and Browning airested
two of tho men this morning, but the Chi
cago man had gone home, and the con
fidence men had to be released. The baby
