Men Who it is Expected Will Fill

UNDUE THE NEW ADMINISTRATION
Several of the Present Incumbents
Appear Slated to Hold
Mayor-elect William MeConoehie is
not saying a great ileal about his plans
for the near future, but from what
has leaked out in one way nn:l anoth
er it is gathered that he has pretty
nearly decided upon the personnel of
his chiefs in the various appointive
offices it will he his privilege to till
immediately after he takes his seat.;
For chief of police, of course, it
could Im no other than IMiil Miller.
That was a foregone coiu-lus-ion two
years ago, even before Phil ceased to
be chief the last time. The night cap
taincy is a matter of some doubt, but
that office will either fall to Richard
Carnes or else the latter will be the
plain clothes man that the merchants
have asked to be provided for the
business district. There will be a
general weeding out of the present
patrolmen, although it is believed
that those who were on the force
when MeConoehie went out of office
before and who were kept under the
Knox administration will be allowed
to remain. Among those who are not
worrying .much about their future
are Desk Sergeant Andrew Ktzi-l, Ofti-
cers Charles Moody arid Sid Pearson,
and Chief McCarthy, though the lat
ter will, of course, be put on a regu
Bancroft May- Remain'
For superintendent or waterworks
it appears that FlumlrJJaiierof t, the
Knox appointee, has ' a reasonable
prospect of holding the place. C. M.
Witherell, who held the siiperintend-
ency during the last MeConoehie ad
ministration, has received considera
tion and may still Vie the man, but
Mr. Bancroft's relations with Mayor
Knox and the part he took in the
campaign are in his favor in addition
to the fact that even partisanship
cannot be blind to that he has fdled
the position well during the two
years he has been in charge of the
For health commissioner the choice
lies between Dr. J. R. llollowlmsh and
Dr. (!. (. Craig, Jr., who held the of

Few New Firemen.
Jt is not anticipated that .there will
bp any changes, at least radical ones;
in the Jire ilepartnieut and in all
probability Charles Hastings will re

there will be a new plumbing inspec
tor appointed, as Frank Yerbury has
not been obnoxiously active political
ly and has filled the office-for the past
two years with satisfaction. How
ever, the Davenport Democrat hears
that C. A. Xutting, of that city, has
leen promised the appointment, and
this may be so. It is an old saying
that one should go away from home
to hear the news.
It has been conceded all along that
Fred Appeliiist was to b; appointed

tending to confirm a contrary belief
has developed to date.

READY FOR INSPECTION
Company A, of this city, will prob
ably be inspected by a regular army
officer during the next few weeks, the
operation being the same as the oth
er military organizations throughout
the country are undergoing and being
preliminary to the bringing of the
militia, of the states under the con
trol of the regular army authorities.
It had been hoped that the new uni
forms that will be furnished the men
w hen the change is . made would be
ready for distribution immediately
afterward, but it appears that the
appropriation for, the clothing . and
accoutrements is not yet available
and will not be for some time. It is
expected that a week's notice will be
given before the inspecting otticer ar
rives. The men are putting in the
time very industriously drilling in or
der to make a favorable showing.
A Good Canal Title.
The announcement that the title
which tlfe Panama Canal company
can transfer to the United States is
satisfactory advances the canal build
ing project materially. It was feared
that a satisfactory title could not be
obtained. In medicine, Hostetter's
Stomach Hitters has a clear title to
first place among family remedies,
having an unbroken record of cures,
extending over half a century, back
of it. No home is therefore complete
without a bottle of it in the. medicine
chest. It will restore the appetite,
positively cure dizziness, flatulency,
nausea, headache, indigestion, dys
pepsia and constipation; also pre
vents la grippe, chills and malaria, fe
ver an ague. A fair trial will con
vince you of its value. The genuine
has our private stamp over the neck
of the bottle.
Why, Mrs. Jones, what have you
been doing to yourself? You're look

they were Tuesday, .Miles started in
to' pitch for the 'varsity, but he was
wild, and when the smoke had cleared

Dunnellyites were 12 to the good.
Cratzmeyer was put in in tlie third
and pitched a steady game. The vis
itors found him freely at times and
errors on the part of the 'varsity,
good base running and timely hitting
helped them run up a big score.
Green pitched a good game and the
few 'varsity men who found him died
a sudden death at first. In tlie sev
enth he let down and allowed the
Iowans to score.' Van tie Steig singled.
Coad followed suit, and Adams fol

them home. Adams came home on
All of the Rock Island men showed
up well. Schmidt's work behind the
bat was superb. Green played an ex
ceptionally good game at short. A
one-handed stop of a hot grounder by
Graham was the feature of the game.

goods at all stages of the game. Af

just back of second, one of the Iowa
