While there has been a return of
the slot machines so frequently com
plained of, it ?s not known that the
other evils the I'niou refers to, those
included in the regulation gambling
joint, are any worse now than they
have been during the' entire adminis
tration of Mayor Knox. The attempt
at suppression of this sort of indus
try was of a spasmodic nature.

In order to be consistent the morn

to the matter of stopping the revival
of the practice of harboring- women

which is as marked as the return if

be essential to gain the sup

MEETING OF MACHINISTS
TO BE HELD TOMORROW
The mass meeting o tri-city ma
chinists, announced at the Rock Isl
and Industrial Home, is to be held to
morrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in
stead of Monday evening-, as original
ly planned. A. E. Ireland, special or
ganizer of the International Associa
tion of Machinists, will be present and
will give a recital of the winning of
the battle for a 9-hour day with a
$20,000,000 Chicago corporation dur
ing the past year, in which affair he
represented the machinists. Others
to speak are E. C. Berry, editor of the
Tri-City Unionist, and John Sloe 11 m,

The prosecution for disturbing the
peace of Fred Matthews, which took
place this morning- before Justice
Schriver, brought to light a long
story of domestic trouble that began
when, the defendant set his heart up
on marrying1 the daughter of Daniel
Dye, who made the complaint. All
the parties now live in Moline, but for
a time they resided in Xebraska. It
was there that Matthews and Miss
Dye discovered that something' was
lacking- in the affinity between them.
Conflicting claims over financial mat
ters appear to have led Matthews re
cently to commit certain acts that
are classified as a breach of the peace
and for which he was fined $1 today.

BOND IS OH THE WAY
But the Question is Who is To
Pay for Treasurer Lyons'
FINANCE COMMITTEE WILL MEET
Relief for Number of Parties in the
Southeast Section of the
The bond of County Treasurer Da
vid II. Lyons for $300,000 was exact
ed to arrive in a late mail this after
noon, word having been received that
it was on the way. The finance com
mittee of the county lioard will meet
at once to approve of it in accord
ance with the authority vested by the
board of supervisors before adjourn
ing early in the week.
No one appears, to know who is to
assume the cost of the security. The
finance committee was not delegated
with Hie authority to settle the mat
ter and the boaril did not act, no re
port having been brought in on a res
olution for the county to bear the ex
pense that was committed with in
structions for a report at the session
that ended Wednesday.
There will be a general feeling of
relief out in Rural and Coal Valley
tow-nships when it is known that an
adequate bond has been secured. Af
ter the lxind matter came to assume
such a serious aspect the significant'
of the bond signed by residents of
the southeast part of the county has
come to light. It apears that Mr
Lyons did not dream of any trouble
in getting security from a bonding"
company and this was what he pro
posed doing when he learned that
the banks would not sign.
Merely to Meet I.f rl KeQalrements
On account of the shortness of the
time a bond was circulated among
ihe friends of Mr. Lyons with the un
derstanding that it was merely to
fulfill the letter of the law requiring
a bond to be ready when the iffice
changes hands. It was known that
this bond would not. be approved, but
by the time it came up for considera
tion by the board Mr. Lyons expected
to have a bond that would stand the
test. Hence the past few weeks have
been rather anxious ones for the par
ties who lent their names in Mr. Ly
