Said Centra Union Has Pur
chased Marshall Tele

WILL INSTALL NEW APPARATUS
However, the Story is Denied by 4V.
B. Roberto, Local Manager.
A rumor is in circulation to the
effect that the Central Union inter
ests have bought up the Marshall
telephone lines which connect the
and and in Mercer counties, and are
and in Mercer counties, and are prc
;reparing to equip them with new
apparatus, including return circuit
wires, and at the same time will use
the. poles now up for an extension of
the company's country business.
'io this end applications have been
made for permission from the high
way commissioners of the townships
through which the lines run to make
the necessary alterations. The ser
vice on the Marshall lines in this
county has Ix-en failing' for- some
time anil the business done since the
iM-ginning of the country telephone
movement has been next to nothing.
Without any question some change
will soon Ik" made either to improve
the service tr to do away with it,
and the report that Mr. Marshall is
lo remove to Chicago adds a strong
coloring to the rumor that lie has
Manager Kolwrts, of this citv. posi
tively do nies that the Central Union
oinpany is to have anything to do
vith the Marshall lines and expresses
the belief that Mr. Marshall himself
has undertaken the improvement. He
says that gentleman was on business
in this connection ' when he visited
the citv about two weeks ago.

The telephone question came up
for final settlement before the Free-
port city council Monday night and
the aldermen settled it by voting
Hills & Worth a in the franchise. The
decision, made after weeks if lively
competition, was unanimous, and the
telephone promoters are correspond
ingly elated. The campaign has been
going on for five weeks.

MEETING OF THE PRESS CLUB
Report on a IMan to Prenerve Col. laven-
port Homntead Other Matters-
The iiovember meeting of the Tri
City Press club was held last even
ing in the parlors of the Hotel Som
mers, Moline. a large attendance of
the membership Wing on hand. One
of the' ntost delightful socially and
interesting1 from a business view of
any f the sessions of th,e year thus
far was the result. J. E. Calkins,
chairman of the special committee
on annual entertairrment, reported
the engaging of Sir Robert Rail,
the Knglish astronomer, who is to
lecture at the lturtis the evening of
Dec. 12, and setting forth the large
responsibility the club had taken
uhii itself and the necessity for
hustle in spreading the fact that the
entertainment undoubtedly would be
the intellectual treat of the season.
The committee's report was approv
ed. The club also heard an informal
report from IS. !'. Tillinghast, chair
man of the committee on Uock Is
land arsenal monument. It was
found that carrying out of the sug
gested plan would not be practicable
at this time, for the reason that the
seeking of a government appropria
tion might divert money that it was
lioie:l to get for the starting of the
small arms plant, on which Com
mandant Klunt is just now concen
trating his efforts to the end that the
factory shall le put in ojeratioii as
soon as iwissioie. However, llie
monument enterprise might le re
vived at a later day, and it was sug
gested that action le simply defer
red. Mr. Tillinghast liclieved that
the elub could give its attention to
another project of considerable his
torical importance the preserva
tion of the old IavenMirt homestead
on the north side of the government
island, the restoration of th decayed
portions and the converting of the
house into a uitiseuui for the exhi
bition of historical relics of the com
munity. The plan of Mr. Tillinghast
carries with it the nlea gaineo
through conversation with Maj.
iSluut that any possible move in this
direction, of course, must be in strict
conformity with the rules if the mil
itary post and the government res
ervation regulations. I he rcMrt
was icceived and the committee con
tinued. K. C. .1. Macrorie, of the
Davenport Republican, was elected to
membership in the club. The social
session included n nice luncheon,
cigars anil n program of songs, by
the Svea Male tpiartet, which favored
tilt company with several Swedish
selections in addition to those given
in English. The singing was excel
lent and immensely enjoyed.

The Administration Cpens Eye to
Violations of Law and
The farce that the Knox adminis
tration has made of the promised re
form with respect to the frequenting
of saloons by lewd women has of
late become so obvious that one of
the aldermen, influenced by reports
that repeatedly came to his ears,
concluded to go - out one evening
quite recently and do a little detect
ive work on his own account. The
shocking state of affairs that was re
vealed to him on that occasion may
be guessed from the fact that imme
diately thereafter a cautious order
was transmitted to the night police
men to notify joint keejHTs that it
will be unwise for them to permit
a certain class of women to be seen
about the bar and wine rooms. This
is the mandate that has gone forth
after six months of an administra
tion that began with such widely
heralded promises of better things.

which was fully discussed by the
meeting. It was voted to incorpo

Foster, .1. E. Asay. Emma Morgan
and Louis Ostrom, a party of medical
men of the twin cities and the sur
rounding country' met at the super
visors room in the courthouse this
afternoon for the purpose of forming
a county medical association- on
somewhat different lines from the
one which held its first meeting last
evening. The call for the-meeting
requested all "regular" physicians
residing in the county to be present
and defined as the purpose of the
gathering the forming of an organ
ization "broad enough to include all
the reputable 'regular' physicians in
the county or who may locate here
from time to time." This movement
is the result of long-standing strife
among , the members of the profes
sion ib thi locality f he object of
the second organization is to secure
recognition in the higher medical
bodies, which according to a recent
enactment, can only be reached
through the county associations.
