A communication has been ad

The A B" it's does not agree with the
sentiments of Taxpayer" nor does
it uphold his policy, lie is very ev

selfish manner of men who thinks
only of himself. He does not stop to

Kock Island who need every cent the
city can give them for honest em

many of these men are taxpayers

may it be said, the snow brought a
blessing when it provided for the ne

citizens of Hock Island, for with the

labor of digging the city's thorough

The Rlspaa Burglary Case Commenced
The Rispan burglary case was tak
en np in the circuit court yesterday
afternoon. Mrs. Sarah Rispan and
her son, George, were indicted as ac
cessories in the various burglaries
committed by John RUpen, who is at
large, his plunder having been con
cealed in the Rispan home. William
Jackson and Looney & Kelly are de
fending, and State's Attorney Searle,
assisted by Major Beardslcy, pros
ecuting. I he case promises to le a hard-
fonght one. It will be remembered

& K.'s store was burned, daniag-
ng the stock to the amount of about
$20,000. An air of mystery sur
rounded the origin of the fire, al
though arson was suspected, as some
jewelry was missing, and it was sup
posed the store was set on nre
n order to cover up the theft.
Ihccanse of the lire remained un
solved for nearly a year. About this
time John Rispan and a pal robbed a
slotmachin in front of the Harper
house pharmacy. ILis and many
other offenses which were laid at
Rispan's door, led the police to
the belief that if an investigation was
made many stolen articles could be
unearthed." The Rispan home on
Twenty-first street was searched.
ami as a result the first clue to
the M. & K. lire was found. Three
overcoats and a lot of jewelry
were identilied as property of the
clothing firm. Other articles stolen
from different places were also found
dden in the garret, cellar and un
der the flooring. Rispan was then
accused of also setting fire to the
store. Just prior to the search he
left town, and his whereabouts since
have never been learned. As Mrs,
Rispan and her son, George, were
surely aware that the stolen proper
ty was in the house, they together
with John, were indicted for bur
glary, the latter being also charged
with arson. George Rispan has al
ways borne a good reputation, being
a respectable and industrious young
man, and that he should thus suiter
for the deviltry of a brother, whose
low reputation is well known, has
rained for himself and mother the
sympathy of all.
