THE ARGUS' SUPERIOR NEWS
FACILITIES AGAIN SHOWN
Another incident last night served
to convince' the most casual observer
of events in. the three cities, of the
superior facilities possessed by The
Argils for sering the news, not only
in its general nature but when excep
tional events are concerned, in a thor
ough and timely manner.
.Inst as The Argus nad fairly started
on its second or city edition the
Associated l'ress brought the tirst
news of the dreadful catastrophe in
the burning of the Iroquois theatre in
Chicago. In order that as many of
its readers as possible might be served
with news occurring in its legitimate
field, a third edition was quickly hur
ried to press with the tirst informa
tion of the disaster, and meanwhile
the more extended details of the hor
ror were put in type and at ." o'clock
a fourth edition came from the press
containing a complete account of the
most important news not only of the
day, but one of the most stirring oc
currencesof thecentury.nnd this went
to t he majority of The Argus" subscrib
ers, a lit I !e late in some of thooiltlving
routes but, news as it proved of a
character worth the time and pains
taken to present it.
The Argus incidentally was airain
distinguished as the only paper print
ed circulating on this side of the river,
having the mot startling news occur
rence of the day. The opportunities
possessed by its membership in the
Associated Press, the advantages of
which are not enjoyed by any other
paper in the evening field circulating
in Kock Island and Moline. together
with the paper's unexcelled office and
mechanical facilities once more be
While the news was being prepared
as fast as it came from the wires,
eager throngs scniin with anxious
faces the bulletins that were posted
in the customary places in The Argus
building where the local public has
become accustomed to look when
events of an unusual character occur.
The Argus has no inclination to be
classed among publications whose
most pronounced failing is an eter
nal tooting of their own horns.
Such practices are as nauseating its
far as the general public is concern
ed in a newspaper, as they are in an
individual, but where facts prove so
marked a contrast in real worth as
was shown last night, and as has been
so frequently shown on other occas
ions, the noting of the matter will.
The Argus feels confident, be regarded
NO TRUTH IN REPORT OF
ACCIDENT ON ELEVATED
A rumor was circulated persistent l
in Kock Island today that there had
been an accident on an elevated rail
way in Chicago in which a number
had lost their lives. It probably grew
out of the excited ci ndition of the
public mind c rr the awful accident at
the Iroquois theatre. The Argus took
pains to ascertain that flu-re was no
foundation for the report.

SON OF KEOKUK PLAYED
WHERE CITY STANES
Moses Keokuk, the Indian chief who
in his younger days spent much of
his time in this vicinity, died recently.
;?uul the. following brief sketch of his
caiter is furnished by Capt. W. L.
Clark, of Davenport, who was a boy
with Keokuk and played, ran races,
swam and fished on tin place where
Kock Island now stands back in 12.
1S20 and is:;i:
"Moses Keokuk, the venerable chief
of the Sac and Fox Indians, died from
an attack of pneumonia after an ill
ness of . three days. Me was M yea
old at the time of bis death, having
lived at Sac and Fox agency sinci
lsiis. lie was buried in the little cem
etery on the government school res
ervation, which for the last :0 years
had been the burial place of the In
dians, government employes and trad
ers about the agenev. The funeral
was held in the little church when
Keokuk had so long been a worshiper,
and the services were conducted by
Kev. William Purr, himself an Indian
and a life-long friend of Keokuk. Thf
pupils from the Indian school were
there and leading members of the
tribe from far and near, as well as
many white people who have known
the deceased, gave silent evidence of
their regard for the one whose jour
ney was ended.
"The history of the life of Moses
Keokuk, faithfully written, would be
a volume of surpassing interest. He
came of royal Indian blood, his fat her
being th.e great Keokuk, whose mem
ory is so rccrcil by the people oT
Iowa that his portrait hangs in the
capitol of the state in a place of hon
or equal to those of the governors
of the stale. Moses Keokuk, like his
father, was a man of great native
ability and was always a friend of
tho whites. During t lit early part of
his life he was a famous warrior,
fighting wild his tribe against the
Usages. I he Pawnees, and the prairie
Indians in the west. He was con
verted to Christianity about forty
years ago, at which time he quit his
wild life and laid aside his Indian
attire and began to live the life of a
"He was a thoroughly good man
exerted a great influence, among his
people. His manner was quiet and
dignified and his face showed a great
deal of intelligence. He was a great
orator, and his eloquence could be
appreciated even by those who could
not understand the meaning of the
words that fell so musically from his
lips. He did not speak English very
well, but could understand it. He was
familiar with the hoslory and affairs
of his tribe and had his counsels al
ways been heeded the Sac and Fox
Indians would have fared much bet
ter. With his womlerf ul ability he
would have exerted a great influence
among the whites as well as the
Indians, had he possessed the advan

great thinker, and the views he ex-j
pressed upon the affairs of the world
were full of a whole.some philosophy
