MATURES IN SHORTER TIME
Course Decided Upon at Annual
Meeting of Stockholders Last
At the annual meeting of the Plack
Hawk Pudding, Loan & Savings asso
ciation held last night an important
amendment of the charter was pro
vided for which creates two new
classes of stock to be known as "XV
and "C," which will nuiture twice and
four times as rapidly as the old class
of stock winch was paid in at the rate
of i,0 cents per month for each share.
The new class "IJ" will mature at the
rate of $1 a month per share, while
class "C" will mature $2 per month
for each share. The idea in this
widening of the association's range is
to provide a (pucker investment, one
that will mature more rapidly, and
thus attract a wide range of capital.
The terms of four of the directors,
I. .1. Ingram, William Koth, Y. .1.
Sweeney ami C. I.. Walker, expired at
this meeting and all were reelected.
Oflicers of the board were elected as
President K. D. Sweeney.
Vice President Ijouis Kohn.
Secretary T. J. .Med ill.
Treasurer H. K. Khoads.
Attorneys Sweeney & Walker.
The proposed amendment to the by
laws was adopted in the form of the
"Kesolved, That Article :t of the
charter of the P.lack Hawk Home
stead Pudding, Loan & Savings asso
ciation shall be amended to read as
"The capital stock of this associa
tion shall be $10,000,000 ;uid issued in
scries, from time to time, at the dis
cretion of the directors, and divided
as follows: Kighty thousand shares
of $too each, to be culled in at SO

sultation with him ordered plans to

sign in every way with the present
structure. It will be erected at the cast
of the present building and of pressed

is expected that the plan will soon be
ready and then the expense can be
estimated and b'uls called for.
E. E. Murphy, of Li avenvvorth,

BULLET CRASHES INTO
WINDOW OF KESIDENCE
Kobert Beimel t bn light to the
liee station this morning a .38 calibre
revolver bullet which crashed through
a window in his home on Twenty
third street this morning. Its force
must have been spent for after break
ing the glass it dropped inside on the
floor, where it was found by mem
bers of the family who were startled
by the crash. Xo report was heard in
the vicinity at the time and those in
terested are. at a loss to know whence
it came. There is a strict ordinance
against the reckless discharge of fire
arms within city limits and careless
offenders of this character are likely
to bet made examples of if their iden
tity is found by the officers.
Contrary to expectations the police
liiad a light day yesterday- and only
two hearings came liefore Magistrate
Johnson yesterday and today, both
simple cases of intoxication. John
Jones, arrested yesterday by Officer
1 letter, was lined $." and costs, while
Martin Mack was assessed $1 and ac
cessories. The wild west aggregation
seemed to be suffering with a general
"the morning after" quietness and its
members were looking for sleep rath
er than trouble.
Magistrate Johnson gave T. Rosen
field a hearing today on a charge of
violating the city plumbing ordi
nances. A fine of $20 and costs was
imposed. Mr. llosenficld claims that
he took particular precautions in the
ease not to violate the ordinance and
will appeal the case.
Jasper Scout, a full-blood Sioux In
dian traveling with Fori paugh-Fish
wild west show, went to sleep on the
grounds after the performance last
night and forgot to wake up when
the tents were pulled down. This
morning he was brought to the sta
tion by some of the oflicers who found
him camping out on the dismantled
show grounds. He will be sent back

J. T. McKtnnan, local freight agent
of the Bock Island, leaves tonight for
Minneapolis, where he will take up at
once his new duties as local freight
agent for the system in that city. Un
til his successor is officially announc
ed James Collins., the cashier, will be
in charge of the local freight office.
Although announcement has not yet
been sent out from the head office at
Chicago, C. Y. Thatcher, of Oalva,
will undoubtedly- succeed Mr. Mc Ken
nan as local freight agent in Kock Isl
and. With the resignation of J. T.
Kockwell at Peoria creating a vacan
cy, there will be a general readjust
ment in the territory of the district
which means the promotion or trans
fer of It men.
Checked Oat Today.
This afternoon the work of check
ing out Mr. McKennan was completed
and his accounts were all found in
very good condition. While he re
grets his removal from Kock Island,
where he has made his home for the
past four years, yet his promotion is
one to compensate for the change and
removal to a strange community.
Twenty-one years ago Mr. McKennan
started in as office boy for the Wa
bash road. He was with the Wabash
for some time and then went into the
employ of the Kock Island at Blue
Island. Later he went to Washing
ton Heights, and from there came to
Kock Island. His rise has been grad
ual and sure and is not only" due to
his energy ami application, but also
to innate ability.
Prmrntert With Chair.
When Mr. McKennan returned to
the office this afternoon he was wait
ed upon by those who have been work
ing under his supervision and II. E.
Curtis, chief clerk, in behalf of him
self and the others, presented him
with a chair as a slight token of es
teem. Mr. McKennan made a re
sponsi'. in which he referred to the
pleasant relations' that uad existed
between himself and those under his
direction. The freight office force
has found Mr. McKennan an exeep-
tiouallv agreeable taskmaster, and
while they are disposed to eongratu
late him upon the recognition that he
has received, they are all filled with
regret at his depnrture.
There are a number of changes to
be recorded in the local freight office
of the Kock Islam!. Nathaniel Swnn
son has resigned as car clerk and will
be succeeded by Alfred Christensen.
Kichard Woodyatt. from the "out
side" office, will take the hitter's
place. W. P.. Stine succeeds the last
(icorge Hamaker is acting foreman
in the freight house in place of (I. A.
Jensen, who is spending his vacation
in Seattle. Wash.
J. 11. Fuller has just returned after
spending his vacation at Chicago.
WILD WEST OUTFIT
SUSTAINS ITS REPUTATION
The Forepaugh-Fish wild west
show, which gave exhibitions here
yesterday. departed last night leaving a
rather bad impression in this vicinity
While no serious trouble involving ar
rests occurred, there were numerous
small incidents which did not tend to
improve the local opinion of the out
fit. The entire company, employes as
well as the members of the manage
ment. seemed to have gone out on :
grand carousal while Davenport and
its slums were at hand. and yes
terday morning the Bridge line cars
brought, over several diversified car
goes of intoxicated Indians, Cossacks,
Arabs and plain United States citi
zens. As far as the riding feats are con
cerned, they were very good, but the
it her features of the performance
were few and colorless. .Numerous
sells on the side w lived led away the
money of the unwary. The grandest
fake of all was perpetrated on a rare
collection of old "baldheaos" who as
sembled after the evening program to
witness a performance which was to
outdo TJttle. Egypt in her daringest.
All they saw was a young woman in
full street costume who gave them
the merry "ha ha." Several gambling
games were conducted surreptitious-
The show was without question one
of the poorest andw asaceompanied by
one of the worst gangs that ever vis
ited this locality, and if the newspa
pers where it appears" would invaria
bly tell the truth about it
not. only would the institution
be put out of existence, but
additional weight would be given
press notices of amusement enter
prises in the mind of the public.
