The movement for the organization
of a Congregational church in East
Moline is taking- shape fjuite rapidly
and the probability is that the church
will be organized during holiday week.
Dr. Itrodif, Illinois superintndent of
home missions, expects to be here the
27th, and it is not unlikely that the
church will be organized that day or
the next one. It is possible that a
council of churches will be called to
recognize the new church, and that
the recognition meeting and the or
ganization meeting will be all one
gathering, but this is not yet decided.

which was enjoyed by a large com

It has been discovered that August
DeMey", who disappeared from Moline
a few days ago after completing a
contract, left several begus checks to
the men who were employed by him.
It was not known until yesterday,
when the checks were turned over to
the bank on which they were drawn,
that they were of no value, as DeMey
had no money to his credit. The men
had the checks cashed at a saloon in
Fast Moline. and later they were turn
ed over to parties in Hock Island. The

Two patriotic societies which a
couple of years ago started with such
bright prospects, are now practically
out of existence and but a few official
acts remain to be done before there
will be an end of them. First of these
is Wellington AYood camp. Sons of
Veterans, which at its beginning had
about 50 members. Gradually, how
ever, the members lost interest and
dropped out, until there were scarcely
any left to fill the offices. As a last
resort a meeting was called to decide
whether or not the society was to
continue. So few members answered
this call that the matter was dropped
entirely and the society tacitly dis
banded. Now t'ie Ladies Aid society,
which was organized a few months af
ter the 'Wellington Wood camp, as
an auxiliary to the Sons of Veterans
organization, has decided to disband.

Frank Daw, a well known man in
Davenport, lias been arrested charged
with forgery, the information being
sworn out by the S. 15. & S. shoe
store. The forgery is alleged to have
been committed in signing an order
on which he wrote the name of Kmil
Wiese antl which he passed at the
shoe store in payment for a pair of
shoes. The information was sworn
out before Justice lioddewig antl Con
stable Holiday arrested the prisoner.
The hearing has been set for .Satur

years of sige and is a former deputy
at the court house, lie has been em

has been at work at Dettendoif.
At 10 o'clock Wednesday night at
the family home, 2.'!4 Howell street,
occurred the death of Mrs. dohn
I'orth, the fatal ailment being attribu
ted by the attending physician to
tuberculosis. However, charges of
a more serious nature are made,
which caused Coroner l.amhach to
order an inquest. It is charged by
friends of the woman that during the
middle of last September, she was
knocked down and kicked in the ab
domen by a p;:rty named Lehrs, with
whotn she had a disagreement. It Is al
leged that since receiving the assault
that Mrs. I'orth has suffered a severe
relapse and bet n on a steady deeline.

for the past two days at work upon a
very difficult problem. Some time ago
the postotlice department at Washing

orders had been rifled, and that upon
the receipt of the letters the money

The testimony of (Jeorge P.urrier
has all been placed before the jury
ami the witness was taken back to his
cell in the county jail at : o'clock
yesterday afternoon. IJurrier was on
the witness stand from Wednesday
morning, and for nearly two days was
subject to a mass of questions that
it would take a cool head not to get
puzzled over. Despite this' fact the
attorneys state that his testimony
was practically the same as at for
mer trials and that he varied but lit

along. For nearly a day Attorney Fos

When W. I (haddock wrote to
Mayor Decker and' attempted to inter
est him in his tale of woe, in that his
wife had deserted him and ran away
with his two children, he no doubt
stored tip more unpleasantness than
he had anticipated. Now parties who
know Chaddock are bobbing up every
day and giving him everything but a
good name. Now comes word from
Cadillac, Mich., that Chaddock desert
ed a wife and two children in that
city something like ten years ago.
Detective Phelan and Officer Sehlu-
ter yesterday afternoon arrested Dick
Sullivan in Southeast Davenport and
jailetl him on the charge of highway
robbery. Sullivan is thought to have
been the ringleader of a gang that
committed a holdup near the Sitz ice
house in Fast Davenport last spring.
Other members of the gang were cap
tured and given a sweating, but it
was found that they had not received
any portion of the spoils, Sullivan
having skipped with the entire $40
which was taken from the victim of
the robbery. Sullivan left for parts
unknown immediately after the hold
up, and until his return yesterday the
poliee had been unable to locate him.
He is si well-known character.
