The (ioniiMt Official, It Is Claimed l-n-

Against the Whites of the People Legal
Opinion Ths Situation Today.
As village attornev. H. A. Weld.
of this city, was called to Milan Satur
day afternoon, at the solicitation of
the council to give his opinion as to
whether or not the said council was
vested with the authority to tolerate
the laying of tracks through Milan,
without first petitioning and getting
the consent of the majority of the
property holders along said right of
way. Mr. Weld gave as his opinion
that the council could not grant
such proceedings without violating
the statutory laws.
Why His Opinion Was Asked.
Thecircumstance which put Milan's
conncil in such an embarrassing po
sition that Mr. Weld's legal advice
was sought, was Idue to the fact
that Engiueer H. H. Wheeler, who
superintends the construction of the
Hennepin canal, having finished op
erations in that vicinity, of his own
accord caused to be laid a track
leading from the canal banks to the
Peoria depot in Milan, across which
the machinery, engines and other
materials used in the Hennepin con
struction could be conveyed and ship
ped from the depot to the next
place of operation. Without even
Having the consent of the property
holders, across whose lots and
grounds the tracks were laid, Engi
neer v heeler carried out Lis plans,
so far as the laving of the rails was
concerned. Expressions of indiena-
uon went up trom not only those ui-
on whose properly the irovemnient
was trespassing, but Mr. Wheeler s
unauthorized actions n,et a quick re
buke and were severely scored bv all
the residents "of the villajro. The
town conncil was finallv annealed to.
uiu 11 ueing in rtoubt as to how to
move in the matter, sought the lcjral
advice of H. A. Weld, who cave his
opinion as stated above. While the
laying of the track was completed
none of the proposed hauling was
The Milan populace is prcttv well
worked up over the affair, and as yet
nothing has passed over the tem
porary railway. A petition is being
circulated amone the property hold
ers today, granting the prosecution
of Mr. W heeler s pians, but very few
are signing it, apparently owing to
the fact that their property would be
in danger or lire trnru sparks should
engines be altowed to pass their
houses. President Caldwell, of the
Milan council, stated today that he
had given permission to Mr. Wheeler
to pass over the track with empty
cars and engines, with the provision
that no lire be used for draughting
purposes. So far no advances have
been made by the government.

Meets a Distressing Fate.
A 10-year old 6on of Jacob Weaver,
of South Moline, met with an nnfor
natc accident on his father's farm
yesterday afternoon. It seems that
Jacob Weaver and his brother, John,
were out in the pasture with their
sons, aged respectively 10 and 9. and
the boys were each on horseback. In
a little discussion over the merits of
the boys as riders, Jacob offered
dollar to the one who would beat
the other across the pasture. The
boys accepted the proposition and
started to race across the held.
Killed by the Home's Hoof.
Near the end both horses fell, Ja

of the injuries the boy died at 4

Augnstanaa are Shot Out by the t'alrerslty
A lack of enthusiasm and interest
which seemed to exist among our
lovers of athletic sport, and wliich
hart a tendency to discourage those
who were instrumental in introduc
ing the art of Joot ball in this sec
tion, has no doubt become a thing of
the past, as the people are, from all
appearances, getting better ac
attainted with the scientific work and
excitement which characterize the
game. A good crowd turned out Sat
urday afternoon to witness the con
test between the Augustara and Iowa
State University elevens, which in
deed was a line exhibition. Al
though the home team was shut out
by a score of 34 to 0, the people
might well feel proud of having in
this city a foot ball eleven in August-
ana which, when it has the expert
encc that marked the playing of its
Saturday opponents, will rank with
the best in the ceuntrv. Another
thing which the home team had to
contend with was the superior weight
and strength of the visitors, nearly
every one of them leing veritable
giants, well trained, both physically
and scientifically. Nevertheless, the
locals put up a plucky fight, despite
the fact that thev were outclassed
In the first half, Collins, who plays
