Dissension among the members of
the Rock Island division of the naval
militia has resulted in the resignation
of Lieut. W. L. Ratledge, for the past
year commander of the division.
The resignation has been forwarded
to Springfield, but has not been acted
upon as yet. In the meantime Lient.
F. L. Tubbis is in command of the
division, his appointment coming in
a telegram today from Adjt.-Gen. J.
N. Reece at SpringGeld.
"It is my purpose to set at work at
once to put the local division in the
excellent shape that it was in when it
was first organized," said Lieut.
Tubbs. The boys have lost interest
in their work owing to different
causes, but 1 believe it will be an easy
matter to get them in line again.
Rock Island should have one of the
crack divisions of the state, and I be
lieve we will have when we leave for
camp the 10th of the present month."
Lieut. Tubbs requests all members
of the local division to report for drill
