CURFEW BELL LAW.
Copies of It Being Sent to Illi
ASKTKG FOB ITS ADOPTION.
Drift of the FroTlftlon and Some Staltlcs
Hacking It Vp Started la Nebraska, bat
Minnesota Cities aad Others are Adopt
Letters have been received by the
mavors of Illinois cities from Alexan
der Hogeland, "the newsboys'
friend." as be-is popularly Known,
inclosing a copy of the Curfew Bell
Law," as passed by the legislature
of Nebraska and approved by muni
cipalities in other western and north
ern states. In a note accompany
ing the same. Col. Hogeland ex
presses the hope that the mayor and
couneil addressed will see their wav
clear to adopt the law as an ordi
nance, even though some of its pro
visions nay be modified.
Jn speaking of tne importance oi
the reform be is seeking to accom
plish. Col. Homeland quotes from
police reports, the correctness of
which nave never been assaueu, as
"In eleven cities in 1892, 13,000
policemen arrested 400, 0J0 men,
women and children at an expense
of $120,000,000. In an canal num
ber of population among farmers, the
same year, there were not 503 arrests.
Of the 13,009 bo(vs and girls in re
form schools iu 1890, 98 per cent
went from cities, towns and village!
and from one-third of the popula
tion, as two-thirds reside on farms."
Copy of the Law.
In introducing the "Curfew Bell
Law" to the mayor. Col. Hogeland
"The following is a eopyofthc
ordinance known as the 'Curfew,'
and which has during the past few
years been enacted and enforced in
many of the northern and western
cities with results the most gratify
ing in the lessening of crime among
the youth of the cities by compiling
their presence in their own homes-
after late hours oi the mgbt."
Then follows the law, whieh is
short and to the point. It reads:
Sec. 1. It shall be unlawful for
any minor under tho age of 17 years
to be found upon nny public street
or allev at night after the hour of 9
o'clock, unless accompanied by par
ent or guardian, or unless upon some
errand or lawfnl business.
Sec. 2. It shall further be unlaw
ful for any minor to visit, frequent.
or to bo found in anv booth, arbor.
bar room, tent or place where malt,
spirituous or vinous liquors are sold
as a beverage.
Sec. 3. It is further ordained that
it shall be unlawful for any owner or
keeper of any saloon or place where
liquors are sold to permit or allow
any miner to frequent or remain in
tneir place of business, exceptions
to this would be members of the fam
ily of tho proprietor or proprietors of
Sec. 4. Any person who shall vio
late any of the provisions of this
ordinance shall npon conviction
thereof be lined in any suns not ex
ceeding $2.5, and shall stand com
mitted until said line and costs are
paid and expense of prosecution.
Wther Cities Acting.
The eity of .Winona, Minn., has
adopted the law but the mayor has
vetoed it lixing the time limit at 9 p.
ui. and the age limit Id years. Qnincy
aets upon it Monday night, and liock
Island may hear from it at aay time.

Yesterday was the big day of the
Hock Island county fair at Joslin.
The occasion proved" both enjoyable
and successful. The exhibits were
attractive, and 2,000 people, includ

the grounds. The track events were
all first class, Seal being the main
attraction io the free-for-all, and won
in straight heats. Tom Latlin's
pacing canine wonder, Don, gave a
fine exhibition both in harness driven
by his little mistress and aloue

WILL WE BE IN IT?
The Westers Bae Ball Am
President Kent, of the Western
Base Ball association, has fixed up
the circuit which he proposes to
rnn next season. It omits the town
of Rockford, which he permitted to
be crowded in in plaee of Koek Isl

Will the Twins Enter Again?
The Cedar Bapid Republican how
ever, speaking of the fall meeting of
the estern association says: "It is
a foregone conclusion that Dubuque
and Burlington will be dropped out.
It is not so certain, however, what
teams will be placed in their posi
tions. It seems almost certain that
liook Island and Moline will be given
a fraochiso in the eastern division in
place of Jacksonville if it is desired.
but it is not so certain that it will be
accepted. If a team is not pat in
tnoso towns it is likely Springtield or
Aurora will bo asked to take the
place of Jacksonville. Both towns
have demonstrated that with a reason
ably good team they are good ball
towns. In the western division it is
between Omaha and Sioux City, with
the chances all in favor of Sioux Oily
if Kowe insists on holding the fran
chise at Omaha. This is not likely,
however, for the reason that Uowo
owes the association cvury cent of
dues for the year and has refused to
pay them. The association is of the
opinion that it has the right to lire
him without consulting his wishes.
Other Omaha people aro desirous of
securing a franchise in the western
league. Whether or not thoy will be
able to do this is a question. It is
known that parties have figured on a
team in the league to represent that
city, and Long has been credited with
a desire to take the Tcrre Haute team
there next year iustcad of to Colum
WANT HIM RETURNED.
St. E. Church nosed Antes the Conference
Kot to Disturb air. Merrell.
Uncertain as to the reassignment
of Ilev. F. W. Merrell to the pastorate
of the First M. K. church by the an
nual conference to be held at Peo
ria next Tuesday, the t-hurch olfioials
have unanimously asked his return.
While Kev. Mcrn-11 entertains little
doubt but that he will be continued
in his present charge, yet it is diffi
cult to prophesy the outcome of tho
conference deliberations. The laws
of the church permit a minister to
remain at the head of a congrega
tion live years, whoa he is assigned
elsewhere. Rev. Merrell has been in
Uock Ishuid four years, and the most
his people can expect is his presence
another term, which they are hope
ful and unanimously in favor of hav
ing. In his few years' with tho Koek
Island church He v. Merrell has added
materially to its menibarship, and
conducted its affairs la'"tfUch ii man
ner as to ilicit the httarty commen
dation of his pcoplo, who will not
part with him until it is entirely
Kemovetl Last Year.
It will be rumem be red that at last
year's conference Be v. Merrell was
assigned to the Kankakee pastorate
and Kev. M. A. Head ordered to
Koek Island. Although not dis
pleased with the new pastor, the M.
K. congregation preferred the eon-
tmuance of Kev. Merrell, and inter
ocded in behalf of that end, finally
appealing ts the district bishop, who
granted tho request.
The chnrch is again prepared to
insist on his retention for the ensu
ing year, and have apprised the con
ference oi the desire. Kev. Merrell
goes to Peoria Tuesday.
Mollne's Journalistic War.
The war between the Repnblieau-
Journal and the Mail in Moline. has
reached that stage where it threat
ens to go into the courts. Constable
Tom ltenoe has served the following
notice, signed by E. L. Kastman, of
the Journal, on the publishers of the
"T. I. Stanlet. Charles E. Mav
and Charles J. Wilson, publishers of
tne Alau: in your issue of sept. 4
you published the following malic
ious, false aud defamatory statement
' 1 15 11 1 our readers ds not care to fce
presented with Eastman's pedigree.
They all know what he is. A man
who will send his father to the poor
farm to die among unfortunate pau
pers, while he himself Uvea in com
parative affluence, is not worth talk
ing about, and the Mail prefers not
to disgrace Us columns with the
name of a man whose only object is
to gain a few dollars and other
carlhly possessions, p von at the sac
rilice of his father's happiness.'
'Yon are hereby notified and re
quested to publish a correction and
retraction. K. L. Eastman."
The fact that T. I. Stanley, of the
Mail, says the conservative Dis
patch, called on an attorney to draft
a similar notice to the publishers of
the Joarnal. asking them to retract
and correct certain statements pub
lished regarding Stanley and he
Mail, indicates that there is to be
no retraction, but a recourse to the
cenrts. Stanley desires the Joe real
to take back w'bat it has said abont
his having been recently drunk and
indnlging in gambling, etc.

A HUGE AFFAIR.

The barbecue givon by the
East Moline association yesterday
was a grand affair, and no one who
attended had occasion te complain
of being stinted either in the mat
ter of hospitality or entertainment.
The crowd was tremendous,
but in this the projectors found the
obstacle to the successful conduct
ing of the lot sale by auction,
which was to be the main event of
the day. President C. II. Pope and
Engineer M. ii. Paddock together
with Col. J. V. Judy, auctioneer, suc
ceeded in getting the crowd before
them massed around the platform
erected for the purpose, and after
Col. Judy had made a brief speech,
be begau the auction sale, but it was
soon apparent that the method was
not practicable under the circum
stances and it was postponed. Later
it was taken up again, but aband
oned after a few lots had been dis
puted of, as people while interested
in the matter, appeared to be in no
hurry about making choices in such
