THEFT REPORTED TO THE POLICE
Both Have Proof to Kstablish
The wheeling season may now be
considered fairly opened. The first
bicycle theft of the season was re
ported to the police last evening. The
machine was the property of William
Schultz, :.'() Fifth-and-a-half avenue,
ami was a Keading Standard. From
this time on it is to be supposed the
poliee will do the usual business in
wheels. Already the baek room at
the station offers an unusual variety
of derelicts pieked up on the street
and not worth going after.

Later developments in regard to
the wheel mentioned above as stolen
have brought about a rather unusual
state of affairs. The bicycle was left
by Schultz in front of an tip-town sa
loon about noon yesterday. While he
was gone along came Carl Schillinger.
who also ow ns a Keading bicycle. The
latter was not long in concluding that
the machine was his. so he took it. and
rode away, reporting to the police in
the afternoon what he had done. To
day, when Schultz discovered where
the wheel had gone, ho went after if.
but Sehillinger refused to give it up.
Doth young men say they have ample
proof to establish their respeetivo
Wheel a Ie-r a Ever.
There has been talk of a slaughter
in prices of bicycles this season, but
so far the quotations of local dealers
are but little lower than last year.
It is said the American bicycle trust
is laying plans to put the smaller
dealers out of the business and prices
are to bo put down where it will he
cheaper to ride than to walk. This
may be the condition of affairs in
some other places, but iu Kock Island
it looks as though there will be little
reduction in the old rates.
