Attention of Authorities Directed
to a Case in East Part
of the City.
NEIGHBORS FEED THE DAUGHTER
Who is Abused by Parents and
Beaten by Her Broth
The attention of the authorities
of the city has been called to an
instance of cruelty within a family
that, if all charges are substantiated,
is more like the practices of savagea
than those of civilized beings.
The family in question resides in
the east part of the city, and the
story of the daughter, who is the
victim of the outrages, has been told
to the ollicers of the law ancl vouched
for by neighbors acquainted with the
This daughter is about 21 years of
age and is not strong enough to earn
her own living. Other members of
the family, include the mother, a
number of grown sons besides the
father, who is away from home part
of Ihe time. It seems that domestic
differences have arisen from time to
time till a state of chronic disaffec
tion has resulted, and the daughter,
being the weakest of the number, is
the one to suffer most.
NHehlxint I'rovldt" tier I'ood.
For some time past the neighbors
have been called upon almost daily
to provide the daughter with foid
to prevent her from starving, and
finally the matter was taken up and
the girl was persuaded to tell her
story to those whose duty it is to
attend to the enforcement of the
From her tale it appears that she
has not been allowed to eat with the
other members of the family for sev
eral weeks and has depended entirely
upon such scraps as she could pick
up about home and the charity of the
neighbors to keep body and sold to
gether. She declares that her mo
ther abuses and her brothers beat her
Those to whom she addressed her
self advised her to return home and
once more try to live in peace. - In
the meantime the case is being in
vestigated. BIDS FOR GOVERNMENT
WORK ARE OPENED HERE
The bids for 'the government river
improvement between this city and
It-irlingtou and between that city and
Hannibal were opened in the office
of Maj. C. Mel). Townsend at 11
o'clock this morning. There were
three bidders, A.-.I. Whitney, of this
city. Fetter Crosby, of I.at'rosse,
and Albert Kirchner, of Fountain
City, Wis. The latter presented the
lowest bids on both propositions, as
follows: Between Hock IslanTT tind
Burlington rock, US cents per cubic
yard and brush 28 cents for the same
quantity. Between Burlington and
Hannibal, rock, !S cents; brush, 2'J
The bids have been forwarded to
Washington by Maj. Townsend with
the reeommedation that that of Mr.
Kirchener be accepted and the con
tracts awarded him.
MORE ASPHALT PAVEMENT
Auewiment Rolls for Three Mollae Street
It will be of interest to those Bock
Island citizens who are laboring to
furthur street improvement in this
city to note that assessment rolls
were confirmed in the county court
th's morning' for additional ' asphalt
paving in Moline. The thoroughfares
to be improved are Kleventh street
between Fourth and Fifth avenue,
Fifth avenue between Twelfth and
Seventh streets and n portion of Sev
enth, street. The engineer's estimate
of the cost is $4.00 per front foot and
the cost, as is the case in early all
improvements of the kind, will be
materially less than that figure. It
may be of further interest, to know
that the improvement will cost Mayor
Wessel, who owns adjacent property,
something like $1,5(M, which will be.

A number of little girls -in a certain

idea of launching . an; amateur the

so impressed did they become with
the opportunities in' the dramatic
field offered by their inwnediate sur
roundings that they "saved up all

ations of an elahora'te nature to
carry out their enterprise.

the costumes prepared and rehears

overtook the promoters. The broth

had been refused a remunerative
position as usher, became disgusted,
and one day in the. absence of the
witnesses he appropriated the cur

COVES HIM WITH A REVOLVER
Holdup Occurs on Twenty-fourth
Peter J. Buckley, a stranger hailing
from Atchison. Kas.. put- in appear
ance at the police station last even
ing in a state of great ertnrbation
and told of a holdup of which he had
been the victim. According to his
story he was. walking along Twenty-
fourth street about :::). I'pon reach
ing Fourth avenue he met a couple
of men who. approaching him sud
denly, drew revolvers and commanded
him to accompany them behind the
hill boards on the east side of the
street. There one of the men kept
him covered while the other went
through his pockets and took every
thing of value he hail. Then thev
left him and ran northeast toward
the railroad yards.
1 rllxH Men to I'olU-e.
When Buckley had yinie to take an
inventory he found that he was minus
$115 in bills, a small amount of addi
tional change and a bank book on
the Atchison Savings bank. He lost
no time in hunting up the police
station and telling his story. The
description of the two men lie gave
was exceedingly meagre. One, he
thought, was about ." feet 8 and the
other about ." feet 11 inches in height.
Both wore slouch hats and had re
volvers. The police made a general round-up
f the upper railroad yards and
searched all the suspects they found,
but nobody answering the descrip
tion of the supposed robbers was
found. Buckley, who came to this
city Thursday, is about thirty years
