The contention that F. Y. Keator
and 1. P. Hord are not stockholders
in the Mississippi Valley Traction
company was sustained in a decision
on a demurrer of the defendant in
the circuit court this morning by
Keator and Ilord were the promo
ters of the Moline. East Moline & Wa
tertown Ilailway company. They
spent their own money, it is related.
in securing right of way and other
concessions along the line adopted
for the construction of the interur-
ban. When it came time to build, they
were in need of finances. These were
advanced by .losiah Hale, an eastern
capitalist, and others.
The promoters, according to the
agreement, were to receive $23,000 in
stock in the company as remunera
tion for their services. When the
road was completed it passed into the
hands of C. II. Deere and other Moline
capitalists. Keator and Hord asked
for their stock certificates and they
wore oenieil them.
The line was thereafter absorbed
by the Mississippi Valley Traction
company. the promoters urougnt
suit to have the deal annulled on the
round that they, as stockholders.
were not consulted in the negotia
tions, the real purpose of which, it
wa alleged, was to sqecze them out
of the company. The defendant de
murred to the bill, holding that as
Keator and llord could not show that
they were stockholders in the com
pany they had no standing in a court
f equity, in which view the court
concurred. The complainants will
now probably amend flieir bill or take
Particulars In Warr Cases.
Judge Graves arrived this morning
and heard a motion of C. J. Searle, of
counsel for defendant, to compel the
state to set out in greater detail the
facts on which the indictments
against J. W. Warr were founded.
The court overruled as to all of the
17 cases except one. This is the in
dictment covering the embezzlement of
$27,000 from the Moline Kuilding V
Savings association, of which Warr
was secretary. As to this case the
motion of Mr. Searle was sustained.
The state then asked time in which to
prepare its bill of particulars. This
will be a tedious proceeding and will
necessitate a complete resume of the
books and records of the association.
The request of the state was granted,
but no time for the filing of the bill
of particulars was fixed. Judge
Graves decisions on the motions for
reduction of bail and change of venue
are reserved pending the filing of this
Replevin Case Carried I'p.
The motion of D. Hoy Kowlhy for
new trial of his replevin suit against

dealer, involving the. ownership of a
Whitney piano, was overruled. Mr.
