A special citizens' meeting was held
yesterday afternoon at 3: CO o'clock in
the rooms of the Davenport Business
Men's association, to consider the
question raised a short time ago
whether the Rock Island should be al
lowed to place fares on the train
bearing workmen to and from New
Shops and this city. Action taken ct
the meeting consisted of appointing a
committee of three to confer with the
Rock Island railway officials in regard
to the train. The members are: Col.
Nutting, Maj. M. L.. Marks and M. J.
Another cleverly forged draft was
discovered yesterday at the First Na
tional bank in this city, similar to the
one which they received several
months ago. Upon the previous one
the forger recived f Moo at Kansas City,
but uixjn the one rceived by the local
bank yesterday, which was in the sum
of $.jmi, it is not thought the guilty
party succeedd in receiving any cash.
A peculiar instance in connection with
both of the drafts is that they were
forged by the same party, who signed
his name as G. L. Morton.
At the home of his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Werner Dallenbach, 1C02 Harri

Sunday at the home of its parents,
on the Jersey Ridge road near the

has left for Cleveland, O.. where he
will assume his new duties as travel

or longer before joining Mr. Swan at
his new home.
The German Pioneers' association.
which was organized on the occasion
of the golden jubilee of the Davenport
Turner society two years ago, and
has now a roll of 7" members, will hold
its tliird animal reunion and festival
at Turner hall. Tuesday. Sept. IS. The
organization consists of all those Ger
mans who came to Scott county prior
to the year 1S.12. and is known offici
ally as the German Pioneer association
of Scott county.
The SCtli animal Kinys festival of
the Davenport Shooting society will
be held at Schuetzen park next Sun
day and Monday. The program of the
event for Sunday will consist of tar
get events, which will begin at 10
o'clock that morning after a breakfast
served at the park. Willam H. Reg
emutter was the king of the shoot last
year, and he will preside at the range
this year until his successor has been
proclaimed. The shoo; will bo conclud
ed at j:'', o'clock in the evening. Mon
day evening at 7 o'clock the shooters
will again assemble at the park when
the new king will be proclaimed. At
S o'clock will begin a dance anil a
summer night's festival and at 9
o'clock the crowning of the new king
will be held.
Mrs. John Jenen, 1"n West Second
street, had a very narrow escape from
meeting with serious injuries. While
descending the stairs in the darkness
she slipped :ind fell at the top in
such a manner as to pitch headforemost
down the entire flight. Her head and
body were severely bruised and her
face badly cut.
Yesterday was settling up day with
everybody connected with the combin
ed races and carnival held last week
at the Davenport mile track. As a
consequence checks in both large and
small amounts were freely signed by
Treasurer A. W. Vander Veer. While
no official statement has been given
out in reference to the money taken in
during the week, it was reiorted on
apparently reliable authority that the
Davenport Mile Track association
would clear about f s.im'mi as a result of
last week's event. This is a record-
breaker for them and makes it the
banner year in the history of the as
sociation. Last week's attendance al
so eclipsed by far that of any former
year at the mile track. AYhile the car
nival shows were rather poorly pat
ronized, still Proprietor Barnes comes
out on the riir'u side of the ledger, and
while he did not make as much money
as he expected to. lie himself realized
that he might have fared much worse,
and he left Davenport well satisfied.

is a former student of the school and
was a member of the champion foot

Sterling Version of Plans of Missis
sippi Valley Traction Company.
Sterling papers allege to have in
side information of the plans of the
Mississippi Valley Traction company
for the extension of the East Moline
& Watertown interurban road farther
east and north. The Sterling Gazette
says that C. H. Deere "is considering
the advisability of extending his line
to Albany, thence to Morrison, and
probably from Morrison to Clinton.
Iowa. Mr. Deere has recently gone
over the proposed route beginning at
Albany and going east to Erie, Den
rock and thence north to Morrison
From that place he drove to Clinton
at which place the proposed line would
connect with the road already in oper
ation running south to Davenport.
"A survey of the line will soon be
made and the usual estimates secured
and if the project is feasible, there is
no doubt but that Mr. Deere will build.
He is a capable railroad man, and is
backed by unlimited capital, and all
the projects he has undertaken in the
vicinity of Rock Island and Moline and
the surrounding towns have been
successful; and each line has proved
profitable. The line which he con
templates building from Albany will
be about CO miles in length, the sec
tion from Morrison to Clinton will be
about 10 miles long.
"With an almost practical certainty
that the Sterling. Dixon & Eastern
will build an extension of its road
from this city to Morrison and the
high probability that Mr. Deere will
carry out his project, the people of
Sterling may look forward to an ex
cellcnt railway service west of this
city. It will be possible when the pro
posed lines are built, to go a long dis
tance by electricity. Passengers may
travel to Clinton, using the Iliggins
and Deere lines, and there they could
connect with another interurban sys
tem for Davenport. Rock Island and
Moline. Other railway projects are
under way and if all of these are car
ried out, the extent of the electric
traveling facilities will be greatly in

The C. E. Battles Fifth avenue
pharmacy was robbed by a sneak thief
early Sunday morning, the robber
getting $25 or $30 in cash and making
his escape. The store was opened as
upsual in the morning by one of the
clerks, who saw nothing wrong at
the time. When Mr. Battles arrived
he found the drawer in the cash regis
try empty where Saturday night there
had been enough to begin business
with in the morning. It is supposed
that after the clerk opened up the
store he had occasion to leave the
front part of the store, and that in
his absence some neak thief entered,
tapped the drawer and made his es
cape with the cash.

is situated in the rich mining districts
near the center of the state on the

citizens are enterprising people and
they realize that it is necessary to
pave their streets. The question arose
whether brick or asphalt paving should
be used, and it was decided to senil the

Printers employed by the Moline
Printing company walked out yester
day on a strike, because the company
would not pay a fine assessed by the
union on the office for the use of bor
rowed type. As a result the company
will employ other men and run an
open shop in the future. The type was
set in the composing room of the Jour
nal and delivered to the Moline Print
ing company for running off several
thousand circulars for a local mer
chant, a third party. Charles Smith,
chairman of the executive commit
tee of the Tri-City Typographical
union, who is foreman of the Journal
and delivered the form to the printers,
demanded the fine of $7.75 on behalf
of the union. This was assessed by
the union at the rate of 10 cents a
column inch and three times he was
refused payment and after that called
out the men on a strike. The com
pany in a statement by Mr. Steinnort,
declared that it should have had
warning of the fine when the type was
delivered to it, or should be given
hearing before such an assessment
against it, declaring that it is paying
higher wages than the union scale.

hours and forty five minutes from thu

Under the schedule that has been
prepared, the Overland Limited train,
operated jointly by the Union Pacific
and the St. Paul, reduces its time
between the two cities from 2S hoars
and 45 minutes to 2G hours.
The distance between Chicago and
Denver is considerably over I.OOii
miles, which means a rate of about
forty miles an hour for the entire dis
Eastbound the time is cut even
deeper than westbound, three full
hours being eliminated from the sched
ule between Denver and Chicago.
By the rearrangement the Overland
Limited of the St. Paul road leaves
Chicago at C:05 p. m. and arrives in
Denver at 8 o'clock the following
night. Eastbound the train leaves
Denver at 4:20 p. m. and arrives in

To line up with the new schedule
the train that left Chicago at 9:45 a.

changed from 9:45 a. m. to 7:15 a. m.
