ROCK ISLAND. ILL
NAMED FOR PLACE
Judge W. H. Gest Called to Third
HONOR COMES UNSOLICITED
L-eares Fourteenth Circuit Practic
ally With Two Presiding
The Illinois supreme court, at
Springfield, last evening- announced
the appointment of Judge William II.
'est, of Hock Island, to the position
on the appellate bench, third district,
made vacant by the resignation ol
Judge Urown, of Wheaton. Judge
(Jest, to whom the honor came unso
licited on his part, is receiving the
congratulations of his frien:ls today.
The sessions of the appellate court
for the thir;l district are hejd at the
state capital. Judge Gest does not
relinquish his place on the bench in
the 14th judicial district by reason of
his new apMiiitment, but it is doubt
fnl if he will be able to devote much
of his time in the circuit, as the vol
ume of business that comes before the
third district tribunal is the second
largest in the state.
8ulary Remaioa Same.
Judge (Jest's new duties do not car
ry any increase in salary, which re
mains at $3,000 per year. He was re
elected one year ago to a second term
on the circuit bench, thus making the
length of the term he enters upon as
a member of the appellate bench five
and one-half years. However, he is
allowed a clerk with a sali.ry of $1,009
The elevation of Judge CJest leaves
the 14th judicial district, comprising
the counties of Kock Island. Mercer,
Henry and Whiteside, practically with
two jiidgps. Three have found it
more than they could' do to dispose
of the business brought before the
four courts in the district, and with
the additional burden there has arisen
rather a serious situation, to relieve
which temporarily it will be neces
sary to call in judges from other dis
tricts. In reality, four judges are
needed in the 14th district, but to se
cure the increased assistance a legis
lative enactment will lie required. A
move in this direction will perhaps be
made in the near future.
I'ntil recently the 14th district has
hr.d a judire on the appellate bench
since its creation, first Judge Pleas
ants and then Judge Higelow. It was
expected. Judire (Jest being the senior
judge, he would be appointed when
J uge Iligelow retired, hut he was not
at the time. 1 1 is select ion now is said to
have been due to the influence of
Supreme. Justice Sc.tt. who has
thus improved the opportunity to
honor the bar of the district in gen
eral, and Uock Island in particular, in
CITY MAKES HITI DIZZY:
FRIEND PAYS FARE HOME
The son of a wealthy farmer resid

visit to the city yesterday. He had
not been in long before he was at

where he indulged freelv in the amber
Uy night time he bad taken on quite
a load and didn't know exactly where
he was at. When seen at the Peoria
depot at 7 o'clock he was crying like
a child. When a Hock Islander ques

been touched for a dollar or so and
that he didn't have the price to get
The Kock Islander doubted the
truthfulness of the story, but never
theless bought him a ticket and sent
him happily on his way.

STATEMENT FROM THE COURT

Judge E. C. Graves has made the
statement that tie will reduce the bail
of J. W. Warr to $10,000 as soon as all

tered a motion asking the filing by

covering all the indictments.
As the Y'arr case is second on the
criminal docket to be commenced the
coming week, unless the court should
pass favorably on the motion for" a
change of venue, arguments of which
have been completed, it is likely the
defendant will be liberated from the
county jail before the trial is begun,

been furnished by Mrs. Leonora C.
Scott, of Hurlington. Iowa. The mo
tion for a change of venue has been
