ROCK ISLAND. ILL
$68,000 IN TJNSI CUBED NOTES
Arrested This Afternoon on Com
plaint oT One of the
Developments at the meeting of the
creditors of J. W. Warr, the Moline
publisher whose shortage to the Mo
line Building & Loan association and
borrowings from friends without se
curit3' have been recently made pub
lic, were not of a reassuring nature
to those whose funds Mr. Warr has
appropriated. Instead of obligations
amounting to $0,0(M), which it .had
been supposed would include every
thing, it was found that there out
standing notes enough to bring the
total up to about $100,000.
The original figures on the short
age to the association were not chang
ed, $7,000 being the amount diverted
to the use of the former secretary.
Of the creditors who attended last ev
ening's meeting, however, there were
00, and they brought in notes that
footed up .$68,50.1. This makes the to
tal amount needed to straighten out
all accounts $i9,70.1. or considerably
more than tice as much as Mr.
Warr's assets amount to.
A letter was read at the meeting
from Mr. Warr, who is. still confined
at home by illness, stating that he
had the utmost faith that if he were
given a chance to continue in the
management of his business he could
in time pay back every cent he owed.
There was also a letter and a tele
gram from Enos Spencer, of Louis
ville, Ky., inquiring how much would
be required to pay off Mr. Warr's ob
ligations. Mr. Spencer is secretary of
the National Commercial Teachers'
Federation, of which Mr. Warr is pres
ident. Little Comfort la Thin.
Neither the letter nor the telegram
indicated to what extent Mr. Spencer
was willing or able to go in making
his associate's accounts good, and the
creditors are not extracting a great
deal of comfort from that source.
At the meeting the advisability of
allowing the business to be operated
longer was discussed, anil it was final
ly decided to appoint a committee of
live members to examine into the ex
tent of the assets and report at a
meeting to be held when the examina
tion has been completed. On this
committee were placed Myron Jor
dan, . A. Schuler. L. C. Ulanding, J.
D.-Metzgar and O. K. Charley This
committee began its work today.
Warr Under Arretted.
Warr was arrested this afternoon
on a charge of embezzlement prefer
red by C. V. Johnson, one of the hold
ers of Warr's notes.

ENGLISH EDUCATORS ARE
ENTERTAINED AT DINNER
Arthur W. Jephson, George W.
Cockburn, Herbert R. Rathbone, W.
C. Fletcher and C. J. Hamilton, of the
British educational commission, and
R.W. Atkinson, of Boston, were guests
of honor at a dinner tendered at the
Rock Island Club last evening by Su
perintendent H. P.. Ilayden and Prin
cipal II. E. Brown, of the high school.
During the afternoon they were taken
for a drive over the three cities and
to Rock Island arsenal. At the latter
place they were received by Col. S. E.
Illtint, the commandant, by whom
they were shown through the massive
shops, where are manufactured muni
tions of war. At the conclusion of the
club dinner Mr. Cockburn, speaking
for his party, expressed 1 hanks for
the uniform courtesy they had met
with at the hands of educators and
others with whom they had come in
coutact in America, and the welcome
they hail received which had
been "warmer in '"'Ho place than
it had been in Kock Island.
The schools here were highly
complimented. In fact, he said, the
commissioners were amazed at the
liberality of the American people in
supplying modern school buildings
and equipment, and the love of the
schools manifested by parent and
child. In England, in many places,
the school boards were- compelled to
wage continuous warfare against the
indifference of a large mass of the
people for the educational welfare of
their children. Mr. Coekb'irn thought,
however, that some changes could be
made for the betterment of the Amer
ican pul. lie schools, among other
things increases in the salaries of the
teachers should be voted. He favor
ed more men in the teaching forces.
Mr. Cockburn concluded his remarks
with happy references to the kinship
of the British and American peoples,
and the unity of their purposes, and
held that the advancement of the two
great English-speaking nations along
parallel lines would not only be of
advantage to them, but prove a bless
ing to all the nations of the earth
Mr. Ilayden responded to Mr. Cock
btirn's remarks, giving expression to
the pleasure which the visit of the
commissioners rrad afforded him and
Mr. Brown, and the honor they felt
had been conferred upon the school
system under their direction by the
fact that it had In-en deemed worth r
of inspection by the distinguished ed
ucators from abroad. Concluding, Mr
Hayden heartily - reciprocated Mr,
Cockburirs sentiments of internation
al amity and goodfellowship.
The commissioners departed at
10:30 p. m. for Kansas City.
Camp No. 26, Modern Woodmen, had
