NO CHRISTMAS THIEVING.
Chief Miller Says I ha Police Have
Had a felsgle Complaint.
Iu all my experience as a member
of the Rock 'island police department,
I cannot recall a time when there was
such a dearth of crime duringjthe holi
days as there has been thus far this
year." said Chief Miller. "We have
not hal a, siuirle complaint of theft.
which makes it safe to venture the
statement that there has not been any
serious light-lingered work going on.
for if there bad been it would bave
eome to tbe ears of the officers."
Chief Miller grew reminiscent at
the station today as he lolled back in
an arm chair basking in the sunshine
and puffed away at a Havana that
set somebody back 15 cents. Years
ago when he was "one of the finest"
patty thieviog was never so prevalent
as during tbe Christmas season, and
as a result the police and the magis
trate were kept busy. The tempta
tions are greater dnring the holidays,
said the cnief. Then the merchant is
more generous with his display of
wares, which arc on exhibition both
inside and outside the store, and while
tbe crowds are rushing to and fro the
opportunity is ripe for ones desiring
to secure presents without tbe form
ality of having them wrapped up and
seeing the cash carriage travel.
"The least we would have in those
days was a prosecution for swiping a
turkey or a pail of oysters," continu
ed the chief. Anything up to a case
of carrying away a suit of clothes or
a bolt of silk. But this year they are
all well behaved that is, so far as we
have been ablo to learn."
"His Better Half." What a capital
title to give a farce comedy. It is not
only suggestive, but implies a mean
ing concerning which there has been
many a humorous misunderstanding,
but there can be no such a misuoder
standing about the farce, His Better
Half." The object for which the title
is given will Btrike anybody who at'
tends tbe performance at Harper's
theatre Sunday evening as being ap
plicable to a highly fanny degree, and
the complications ari-ing out of it will
not so readily be forgotten by those
who know hew to appreciate a whole

Mora Balloting Fails to Change tho Lo

to Be Chosen.
According to the following dis
patch, tbe question of selecting a
location for the proposed Western
Illinois Normal school is developing
into rather a warm affair:
Beardstown, Dec 28. Another day
of excitement, false rumors and
al irms has pissed and the normal
school question is still unsettled.
The past 24 hours have held more of
tbe things tbat give a man nervous
prostration than any that have pre
ceded tbem, but the tension has been
relieved somewhat, and there is more
calmness in the situation.
The excitement went to the highest
pitch yesterday afternoon, when Mr.
Saarle demanded a vote and that Mr.
Btylifs be summoned from Spring
field. A message was sent to him,
and after a brief discussion of
the plan of selecting an advis
ory committee, a recess was taken
until 10 o'clock last night, at which
hour Mr. Bayliss was present.
When the roll was called for tbe
first ballot, Mr. BaylUs voted for La
Harpe, Col. Hanna for Quincy, Mr.
Keefer for Macomb, Senator Harding
for Monmouth, and Little and Searle
for Aledj. Mr. Little gave his vote
to Aledo for 25 ballots and then Mr.
Searle voted for Rushville the same
number of times. He then, began to
vote for Monmouth. - -
Searle Votes for Monmouth.
On one ballot both Searle and
Keefer voted for Monmouth, but when
on tbe next Mr. Bayliss led oil witb a
vote for Monmouth, Mr. Keefer re
turned to his first love. Macomb.
After tbat Mr. Bavliss voted for La
Harpe until about 20U ballots bad beeu
taken, when b.vlloting for the evening
was discontinued and the board went
into executive session.
At this session a motion prevailed
to appoint an advisory' committee
