The usual thing happened Monday
evening at the so-called regular meet
ing of the Davenport Business Men's
association. The only members to
answer the call for the meeting were
President A. I-. Mossman and Secre
tary Joe Le Claire. These gentlemen
waited until S:15 o'clock, but by that
time had been reinforced only by two
hungry reporters in search of news, so
the meeting was called off on account
of the lack of a quorum.

The Davenport city council, meet
ing Monday afternoon in committee of
the whole, set on foot an investigation
as to the charges for steam heat that
should be made In Davenport, and
also as to whether the Iowa Telephone
company was charging more for its
service here than it does in othvr cit
ies of Iowa under similar conditions
The securing of data on both questions
was delegated to the grounds and
buildings committee and Mayor Phil
lips. Aids. Matthes, Lindholm and
Vogt compose the grounds and build
ings committee, and the matter went
into the hands of that committee, with
the mayor added, because the discus
sion had linked with the steam heating

The storm drain on Fourth street will
lie begun as soon as sufficient con
crete and material for the work is

from the porch of James Ickes,
who resides on East Sixth street. This
act of depredation has so incensed Mr.
Ickes that he has offered a reward of
$3 for the capture and conviction of
the thier although the chair cost him
but $3.Iij when new. It is not the
value of the chair or the hope of re
covering it that has induced Mr. Ickes
to offer the above reward for the cap
ture and conviction of the thief, but a
desire to rid the community of one
who invades the peaceful domicile of
a family for booty and gain.
The preliminary hearing of the case
of the state of Iowa vs. Amos K. Frey.
charged with embezzlement, was held
before Justice Louis E. Roddewig. The
defense was conducted by Carroll
Bros., and the state's attorney of
Whiteside county, 111., who resides at
Sterling. The Prudential Insur
ance company was the complainant.
The defense did not furnish any
evidence, preferring to submit it be
fore the higher court. Therefore the
justice held Mr. Frey to the grand
jury, which is now in session, and
fixed his bond at $100. He promptly
furnished it and was given his liberty.
