Moline and Davenport merchants
deny that they were open Memorial

know several Moline stores to have
been open, but assert that it is prob
ably true that Davenport merchants
recognized th clerks' agreement.
Some here say that if their competi

M'CASKRIN TO RUN DAILY
PAPER AT SPRINGFIELD
Your strenuous friend, O. Washing
ton McCaskrin has had another
dream. Aside from his political aspi
rations, he seeks to demonstrate the
efficacy of the adage that "the pen is
mightier than the sword.
A daily paper published in the state
capital while the legislature is in ses
sion, devoted exclusively to the trans
actions of that body is his latest. He
declares it is to be made a go. whether
he is elected a member of the b'is-
ature or not. Already he claims to
have secured a number of subscribers.
and they are coming at a rate thai
Justifies him carrying forward his
plans. Me has decided to christen his
paper the Illinois Independent.
George says then- is crooked work
iti every session of the legislature thai
the people over the Bt&te never learn
about, and he proposes making it his
especial mission to keep them posted.
H- states there are fully 99 per cent
of the members who do not want their
actions known in their home districts.
These are the fellows George is after.
He intends whooping it from the start,
and he promises to be there at the fin
ish. In the meantime he says he Is
not allowing his Springfield plans to
interfere with his campaign for the
legislature as an independent candi
date. He is still giving picture shows.

SUES TO RECOVER FIVE
FROM A FORTUNE TELLER
William Mills, of Davenport, is not
so unsophisticated as he was. He has
lost confidence in the "fortune tellin' "
This morning he had Prof. J. Shan
non, of 1 ?,; Pourth avenue, this city,
brought before Justice J. H. Cleland
on a charge of obtaining money un
der false pretenses. The case ended
in Mills having to pay the costs and
the professor haing to return the
money he obtained from Mills.
It was yesterday evening that Mills
blew into Rock Island from across
the stream to have Shannon tell him
of his future destiny. The first thing
that the professor wanted to know.
Mills says, was if he had money, to
which Mills replied in the affirmative,
and put $5 in his hand.
Mills says the professor told him
that he needed a course of electric
treatments, which would cost $21,
with the understanding that the V
was to be the first installment. Rut
Mills did not like the idea and he
claims that he was compelled to take
recourse to law to secure his money
