Rock Island People Celebrate
Christmas in Old-Fashioned
IMPEES3IVE SERVICES AEE HELD
Salvation Army Remember the
Poor and Sheriff Feeds
Christmas was observed in Rock
Island yesterday in the good old
fashioned way. Some of the business
houses opened for a short time in the
morning;, bnt the streets were verv
quiet and little business was trans
acted. The weather man favored us
with the real Christmas article.
The clouds of the morning soon
broke away and old Sol looked down
with sufficient fervor to melt the
south sHe of the clods and ridges of
earth. While it was pleasant out, a
businesslike breeze kept pedestrians
iroru loitering on the street corners
and a crackling lire in a cosy room
was not without its attractive .fea
tures. Those whose travels took
them beyond the paved streets found
the dirt roads perfect, a thing mo3t
unusual at this season.
It is safe to say that the majority of
people stayed at home and enjoyed
the favors that old bt. ick had be'
stowed upon them. The bracingut
mosphere, too. was conducive to a lib
eral consumption of Christmas fare
which would havea localizing tenden
cy upon the human animal.
In the Churches.
The churches holding Christmas
services were well tilled. At the three
Catholic churches of the citv, St
Marv's, St. Joseph's and Sicred Heart
mass was celebrated at 5 o'clock, at
8:30 and again at 10:30 with a sermon
At St. Joseph's church Rose wig's mass
was sung under the direction of Mrs
T.'B. Koidy, with Mrs. Grace Mackin
as organist. For the offertory "The
Birthday of a King" was sung by Wil
liaru Andreas;h, assisted bv a chorus
and at the pater noster "And There
W ere baepherds" was sung bv a quar
tct, Mesdames V. A. Crubauh and
Mary b ichards-Casey and T. J. Murray
and J. M. Colligan.
Services began at midnight Monday
night at tde Trinity Episcopal
chrch. There were matins and
sermon at 10 o'clock vester
day and children's tervices at
o'clock, the latter being participated
in by manv ol the children of the con
gregation. The floral decorations were
biautiful. Today being St. Stephen's
lav, there was a morning celebration
followed bv children's services at
Trinity chapel this afternoon.
The (itTman Lutherans celebrated
with their usual services at- 10 a. ru
and at 7:.S0 p. m. Today second
Christmas was observed both at the
Lutheran and at St. Mary's churches.

Expenses lof Wedding and
W. II. White, who has lately been
living in Moline, was arrested at
Milan Monday evening for horse steal
ing, and thereby hangs a most pecu
liar 'tale. White is the man who a
week ago claimed to have been held
up by two men in Moline. Two fel
lows were arrested here on suspicion,
but there was no proof against thera
and they are now serving a sentence
for carrying revolvers which were
found on their persons. White called
at the jail last Friday aaJ measured
tie feet of the pair to see if they
would fit some tracks he claimed to
have discovered near where he declared
he was held up
Saturday White went to West Lib
erty. Iowa, and Sunday night he
stole a horse from A. A. Brown,
of that place, and with a
pice of bed quiit for a saddle,
started for Rock Island. He was
traced to Muscatine, where he crossed
the bridge into this county. Sheriff
R. O. "McGaughey, of Muscatine
county, telephoned to J. C. Miller, of
Milan, tliat the thief was headed this
way. Meantime William Peppers, of
Drury, and another man. took up the
chase in a buggy and followed White
across four townships, arriving in
Milan close behind him. But they
were too late, for Miller had met kis
man as be was riding into town and
had him taken into custody at the
point of a revolver.
Requisition Papera Neceanary.
Sheriff Cralle went to Milan and se
cured the prisoner. He was identified
yesterday by the owner of the horse,
who came up with Sheriff McGaughey.
White refused to leave the state with
out a requisition and a warrant was
sworn out for him as a fugitive from
justice and a hearing set before Magis
trate Stafford Jan. :. A requisition
will be secured in the meantime.
White is believed to be a iittle
"queer." Not much is known about
him here, but he claims East St. Lonis

with a young woman residing in the
eastern part of Rock Island an1 that
