NOAKER IS NIPPED.
After Eluding Officers
Nearly Two Years.
WAITED FOE EIFFEBEHT CRIMES.
The PrlaelpM Oh Briar Forgery, the
Charge " Which He Was Air teal Last
Xisht UnM TkiMgk His Bliae:
Wife A Yoawg Daveaporter'e Crtase.
Sheriff L. W. Hindman, of Douglass
count j, Kansas, will take back with
him today. John Noaker. a green
looking but sleek individual wanted
00 a charge of forgery committed
at Lawrence, Kas., nearly two
years ago. beside various other
offenses. Noaker has succeeded in
eluding capture since that time, al
though a large amount had been ex
pended in endeavoring to locate him,
and Sheriff Hindman had tracked him
as far west as California, but was
never rewarded with more than a
doubtful clue to the criminal. Last
evening, however, the sheriff suc
ceeded in locating his man.
tracking him to Rock Island
through the agency of his blind wife,
who had arranged to meet him here,
the sheriff coming on the same train
with the woman from Kansas City.
Noaker is supposed to have been In
Davenport for some time, as the
woman had been receiving mail from
there. Ue afterward went to Clin
ton, Iowa, where yesterday the
woman sent the following tel
egram: "Albert, meet me at Rock
Island at 11 o'clock tonight." The
sheriff also notified the Rock Island
police by wire to be at the depot
when the train arrived. Albert'"
was there, and he and his wife took a
hack, with instructions to be taken
to a hotel. Their directions didn't
go, as the driver was told by Sheriff
Hindman, unknown to "Albert," to
drive to the police station. The
sheriff and Capt. Kramer followed
in another hack, and the long
looked for Noaker was hustled be
hind the bars, while his wife was
directed to a hotel.
Harried a Blind Woasaa.
Sheriff Hindman says Xoaker is a
hard character, and his arrest means
a great deal. After the Law
rence forgery, Noaker was heard of
at Lamar, Mo., where he married
Lorraine Jones, a blind woman of con
siderable means last January. They
did not live together, Noaker's object
in marrying being to get hold of some
of her wealth, which he succeeded
in doing. The woman's home is at
Fulton, Kan. When Sheriff Hind,
man became acquainted with Noak
er's marriage, he conceived a possi
ble way of locating him, discovered
through the postefiice authorities
that the woman was receiving mail
from a man supposed to be her hus
band; watched her movements, fol
lowed her on to Kansas City, when
yesterday she made the way clear by
sending a telegram to Albert."

Tom Martin Forces His Father's ICama
for Uambilnc Money.
Tom Martin, the son of City Clerk
Martin, of Davenport, languishes in
Scott county's prison with a charge
of forgery 'hanging over him. The
yonng man is a sport and is desper
ately infatuated with the so-called
pleasures and excitement which seem
to hypnotize he who meddles with
the tiger. Ill-luck having befallen
him at the gambling table, he "went
broke," and being unable to see any
other way of raising enough money to
go against the game once more to
try and win up, be. forged
his father's signature Saturday
on two checks and cashed them for $62
at two Davenport saloons. He then
came to Rock Island. In the meantime
his crime became known and Sunday
night he was arrested. His parents,
who are nearly bankrupt as a result
of his recklessness, are heartbroken,
but have settled the amount of the
forged notes and are endeavoring to
save their son from prison.

Lone Distance Telephone.
Superintendent H. H. Matlock, of
Chicago, was in the city yesterday
on business connected with the tele
phone exchange. He was here es
pecially to arrange to put in the long
distance copper metallic circuit.
This is the circuit which allows the
use of the long distance telephone
between Chicago and New York, and
is an a' most perfect telephone de
vice. All the city offices, the news
piper ofliees and some of the railroad
offices, the places in which telephones
are especially used, will be equipped
the first, and immediately. After
wards the remainder of the service
will be improved and eventually all
the toll lines will be made of the long
distance circuit. Within a year the
company expects to extend its long
distance line from Chicago to Cali
fornia, passing through Des Moines,
Mr. Matlock said yesterday. Mr.
Matlock returned to his home'in Chi
cago last evening. He said that the
new 'phones of tbe metallic circuit
will be a decided improvement in
convenience over the present wall
apparatus, and in every way will
tend to greatly better the service in

Beach Bowers1 Hlnstrel.
Saturday night Beach & Bowers1
minstrels are to appear at Harper's
theatre. The Nashville Herald says:
The best minstrel performance that
has been in Nashville this season was
given at the Grand opera house last
night by the Beach & Bowers com
bination before a full house. From
the time the curtain went np until
the performance was over the house
was in a continual round of ap
plause. The songs were all new and
well rendered. Bobby Beach, in his
song, took the honse by storm. The
contortionist is the best that has
come this way in some time. The
drill was presented in an artistie
manner by well known artists, led
by the inimitable' Bobby Beach, and
introducing all tbe magnificent
movements of that body. Beach and
Berens, the silence and fun artists;
Delmore and Wilson, song and dance
artists: Sparks and Iiiatt, in their
wonderful Zouave drill; Werner and
Berens, in their .wonderful break
neck songs and dances, were all
above tbe average. The whole con
cluded wih a grand extravaganza,
entitled, "Aunt Hannah's Christen
ing." introducing the mysterious cot
tage, which was very amusing.

it did so, as it believes pretty thor

Fablic Diareasraed Heretofore.
There is no particular reason, how.
ever, to think that the wishes of the
public will be taken into considera
tion by the board when it comes to
definitely determining on the mater
ial, judging by its course with refer
ence to other matters, not the least
of which is the way the building
is to be faced. There is no dis
disposition to pass judgment on the
plans adopted in the least unfavora
ble light, but the board's methods in
making its selection have been openly
criticised. No matter what the cus
tom, the committee should in the
first place have thrown open the
plans to the inspection of all. and
the board at least was in duty bound
to do so before making its final de
cision. The board is not a private
corporation as it posed in this in
stance, and the tax payers of the
county were justly entitled to- the
privilege of viewing the different de
signs submitted, if they had nothing
to sav about which one was to be fa
vored. Tbe board should have set
aside a dy for the purpose, and
have invited the public to look
at the plans. All share in this
Upon the appointment e-f superin
tendent, the board has likewise
turned a deaf ear to the public, for a
large portion of our taxpayers peti
tioned, as they had a right to do, the
board with reference to Mr. Collins,
yet their supplications were simply
ignored. Tbe building committee
fixed things up for Mr. Col
lins as had been done prior to start

Collins got there "of course.11
