Power Company Reduces Hates in
Ilenewal of Lighting
Ilids for the construction of the
south Rock river bridge at Milan
were opened at the meeting of the
city council last evening. Hut four
proposals were considered, several
firms having- failed to enelose certified
checks, and their bids being accord
ingly set aside.
The bids show that the improve
ment can be made for about $10.00(1.
There are to be two 240-foot spans.
The bids were referred to the finance
and bridge committees, mayor, city
attorney and engineer, to report at
the next meeting .Monday evening of
the coming week, when it is expected
the contract will be awarded so that
the (jfk can be proceeded with with
out further delay.
The Peoples" Power company had
the only response to the advertise
ment asking bids for furnishing city
light the coming five years. The com

ago, but have not come up to expecta

commission. There were eight of the
towers constructed. Fach was equip-'

Under the old contract the oitv has
been paying for 210 lights, but fhis
will in all probability be increased by
10 in order to embrace the new ad!i-'

One Suspect.. Captured, Another
Shot In Vicinity of Earlliam,
The patrol which the Rock Island
road has had in the vicinity of Earl
ham, Iowa, where a supposed plot to
hi hi up the road for money ransom
for immunity was to have been exe
cuted, last evening captured a sus
pect, who gives his name as Thomas
Murphy, lie gave no explanation of
his presence. He was Captured in the
woods and was brought to Des
A man shot in the same vicinity by
ihe night trackman, and brought to
Des Aloines, also, maintains silence.
His refusal to say anything leads the
Rock Island officials to believe that
he was implicated in the plot.
A special force of armed men is
scouring the country in the vicinity
of Earlham. and the whole country
in th.-t vicinity is patrolled. The Rock
Island is planning to put armed men
on all its night trains for the next
l'rowllnr About Depot.
The man shot was prowling around
fhe depot at Earlham, and the track
walker saw him and ordered him to
; 111 render. Instead of doiujr so, he
ran, and was filled with buckfdyJ.j It
:v thought that he will die. Some
think he is nothing but a tramp.
It now turns out that the three tor
pedoes were exploded on the track
near Earlham by No. 24, which pre
cedes No. 6, from which the $1,000 was
to have been thrown according to the
demands of the supposed robbers, by
half an hour. The bandits evidently
overlooked the fact that another
tiaiu preceded No. and set their
foip;-loes too early. Whether the
discovery of this mistake had any
thing io do with the failure to carry
out further details of the supposed
plot is not known.
