Tomorrow is the last daj-:on which
service can be had in cases that are inV
tended for consideration at the Janu
ary term of the circuit court. The
consequence is that suits are being
filed at alivelv rate.
Florence D. Wilder asks to have-her
marriage contract with Xorman li.
Wilder annulled on the grounds of
cruelty. She recites various occasions
on which her husband has illtreated
her. The couple were married at
Baltimore, Md.. Aug. 27, 189. and
are now residing'in Kock Island. Mrs.
Wilder, who is represented by Attor
ney J. T. Stafford, also applies for an
injunction restraining her husband
from disposing of his property nntil
further order of the court, and asks
for the restoration of her maiden
name, Florence 1). JJcClellan.
I.ucinda Feelev, of Moline, through
Meese & Allen, suesfor a divorce from
John Feelev, to whom she was mar
ried at Davenport in 1872. and, she
charges, deserted her in 18l3.
Annie M. Sharp, of this city, is
complainant in a suit for divorce be
gun in the circuit court. She alleges
that her husband, David Sharp, to
whom she was married June 9, 1897,
has been guilty of extreme and re
peated cruelty, and has threatened to
kill her. She also asks permission to
resume her maiden name. Annie M.

Frederick W. Oldenburg, of South
Moline, is defendant in a suit for
trespass begun by Swau Carlson and
members of his family, who seek dam
ages of $600 from Oldenburg for al
iened damaging of trees and lences on
their premises. Carlson was a few
days ago lined $100 in the circuit
court for an assault on Oldenbu
Carlson having put a load from a shot
gun into him several months ago
The provocation for this act is said
to have leeii Oldenburg s systematic
annihilation of the trees on Carlson's
place. J. 1$. Oakleaf is attorney for
The Story Oat at Lattt.
The second chapter in Capt. W. J
Kinson s 10.0UO damage suit was
enacted today in the filing lntheoihcc
of the circuit court of the plaintiff's
declaration, tins act having been per
formed by the captain's counsellors
John T. Kenworthv and Joseph J.,
Haas. The document is a volumin
ous aiTair. especially where so little is
said. It is devoted largely to legal
phraseology and is in the familiar
handwriting of John T. Kenworthy
After the explanation of the where
ases. wnereins, etc., extended reier-
erMicc is made to as who the captain is
md has been, his political fame and
character. Then in due form comes
the explanation of the grievance
alleged, anil the offense to which it is
affirmed the captain has taken offense
is the reference that was made in
The Aitdfs to the election day esca-
ide of Wesley Ueddig. in conse
quence of which it is solemnly declared
the plaintiff bath been and 13 great
ly injured in his good name, fame and
credit, and brought into public scan-
lal, infamy and disgrace, with and
among all his neighbors and other
good and worthy citizens of this
state;" that insomuch that divers of
those neighbors and citizens to
whom the innocence and in
tegrity of the said plaintiff in
the premises were unknown, have on
account of the committing of the said
grievance by the said defendants,"
etc.. etc., wholly refused and still do
refuse to have any transaction, ac
quaintance or discourse with the
plaintiff, as thev were belore used
and accustomed to have," etc., etc.
Wherefore the captain is constrained
to ask damages in the sum of $10,000.
The divulging of the actual nature
of the captain's allegation will doubt
less prove a disappointment to the
public, as the unearthing of some
dark ami dangerous plot might have
been anticipated. Those familiar with
current events at the time of the in
cident of which the captain complains
will readily recall the frankness
with which The Ak;is made
reparation for any statements
at variance with facts. The prompt
ness and cheerfulness with which this
was done a considerable time even le-
fore there was intimation that the
captain thought of going to law, was
favorably commented on at tne time.

this afternoon to consider the ord
nance. It is in the usual form and
seems to protect the rights of th

doubt of its passage. It grants right

Today water was turned into Rock
Island's filter and reservoir plant, yet
in an incomplete condition, to protect
it from the damage that would likely
follow exposure to the wintry blasts
until the spring season rolls around
again, when work will be resumed
and pushed ahead, and the great im
provement finished in time for the
people to enj"oy the blessings of pure
ami clear water during the coming
It was only drie to a combination of
circumstances that the plant was not
finished and ready for use the present
winter. Mayor Medill was hopeful
until the last-that his expectations
would be realized, but he and all oth
ers who have been watching the pro
gress of the undertaking were finally
obliged to submit to the inevitable.
Mayor Medi'.l, in talking to an Au-
gus reporter today, sail'- "Two of

sand filter basins are not yet com
pleted on account of there not being a
sufficient amount of sand in them.
The requisite quantity of gravel has
been placed iu them, anil there is
about two and one-half feet of sand in
each of them, but each should have

the spring, a time when the water, of
course, becomes very muddy, we will
run water for use through the settling
basins and two of the filters. Then
