LIKE A DIPLOMATIC PROBLEM
The Delicate Way tbe Union Handle the
Proposed SaK on Amendment.
The Union is remarkably touchy
about the proposed amendment to the
saloon ordinance discussed at Monday
evening's council meeting, so much so
thatitomitte:! reference as far as possi
ble to the subject in its issue of yester
day, and this morning it declares that
"The Ak;i's is altogether mistaken
as to the gcope of the proposed ordi
nance licensing saloons," etc., and
then goes on to explain in delicate
terms the council's contemplated
cour.-:e. It maintains that henceforth if
the new arrangement goes through it
will-be necessary for a saieon in order
to nter territory outside the business
district in which one is not already
located, to seciirw the consent of one
half the property frontage in the
block in which the content plated saloon-is
to belocsttcd. The facts, how
ever, are as Tni; Aim us stated last
night, that under the proposed
amendment, it vt 1 11 require the con
sent of two-thirds of the freeholders,
who must, however, own at least
half the property in the block
which the saloon desire3 to invade.
As far as the amendment is con
cerned The Aki.i s can see no occa
sion for suppressing it or mincing
matters in its discussion. The
same spirit that would let saloons
alone where they conduct themselves
properly should draw rhe line at
where thev should break into neigh
borhoods where they are not wanted.
In other words it amounts practically
to ihe same old question of local
option that has beeu urged by con
servative people in dealiug with the
liquor trairc. No saloon that expects
fair treatment from conservative peo
ple should expect to 03 tolerated, in
neighborhoods where the majority of
people are opoosed to its existence
there. What is the use of handling
such a procedure as if it were a
weighty diplomatic problem?

vThe Tri-City Press club held its
November meeting last night at the

ing just returned much improved in
health alter a Colorado sojourn.
Ia assuming the chair Sir. McGlynn
made a few felicitous remarks, in
which he spoke of the honor conferred
and expressed his appreciation cf it.

the club fairly and faithfully, and
trusted the year now entering would

Daly, W. A. Jones.
W. F. Coulter, of the Davenport
press, and Gunar owan, or tne
Moline Journal, were elected to mem
bership. A feature that has been a
most pleasant incident of the club
meetings followed the closing up
of routine business, the Daven
port contingent having provided
a aainty repaat ami a generous
supply of Havanas, all cf which was
indulged with a relish. While no set
program had been arranged, two
hours were most pleasantly whiled
away in social intercourse, preceding
which there was an lateresaug talK
bv Robert Rexdale, editor of the Fra
ternal Tribune, mostly devoted to the
experiences of himself and others iu
the newspaper world. Mr. llexdaie
concluded with the recitation of two
poems of hi3 own composition, "rrom
Out Bohemia" and '-Ren Ali Ghan,"
which were given in a most charming
manner. There was also a vocal
number bv J. M. Colliiran. At mid
night it was announced that General
Mauascer J. F. Lardner, of the Tri-
City Railway company, had a special
car in waiting to convev the Kock
Island and Mcline members to their
homes, and thus one of the most de
lightful meetings of the year came to

An Important Difference.
To make it apparent to thousands,
who think themselves ill. that they
are not afllicted with any disease, but
that the system simply 'needs cleans
ing, is to bring comfort home to their
hearts, as a costive condition is easily
cured by using Syrup of Figs. Manu
factured by the California Fig Syrup
company only, and sold by all drug
gists. If your children are fretful, peev
ish, and cross, mother the same, ditto
the boss, it would seem proper to give
'em all Rocky Mountain Tea. 35

ORDER IS DISSOLVED
Federal Restraint on Clerks and

AEBITRATTON MAY NOW FOLLOW
Way Appears Open for Settlement
of Bitterly Fought Con
test. The way now seems open for an
amicable adjustment of the i.itter and
rather sensational struggle over Sun
day closing between SilbVrstein broth
ers, of Davenport, and the Retail
Clerks' unions of the tri-ci"ties
Yesterday the Silbersteins entered a
motion to dismiss the temporary fed
eral injunction granted about a week
aco restraining the clerks and the
Tri-City Labor congress from taking
anv action detrimental to the firm's
interests. The restraining order was
Ready t Arbitrate.
Silberstein brothers say that this
action has been taken to remove every
diflioulty standing in the way of arb:
traticn and profess themselves ready
to sabmit their case to that manner
E. C. Berry, business agent of the
Tri-City Labor congress, when seen
today by au Aiiui reporter, said he
was not yet prepared to make a state
ment in behalf of the congress.
TYPHOID FEVER IN THE CITY.
Less Than lllf Nambtr of Cases There
Were Last Winter.
Health Commissioner G. G. Craig
states that while typhoid fever is in
creasing in prevalence in ihe city, as
is customary at this season, it is
by no means epidemic as yet, the
number of cases being less than half
that of last winter when the disease
prevailed so generally.
The changeable weather of the past
few days has caused a great deal of
sore throat and bronchial trouble,
but there are very few cases of a ser
ious nature, and the general health of
the citv is considered good.
