COAT AND VEST SECURITY
Allowed to Wear Them Sunday and
Refuses to Give Them Back
In Police Court.
Ed Wilson, a colored man of Rock
Island, is trying to figure in what way
he gained anything by a series of
transactions which were aired in Mag
istrate G. A. Johnson's office this morn
ing. Last Saturday evening Wilson and
another colored man named James
Goodman were in Davenport, playing
in a crap game with others. It seemed
that the bones were against Wilson,
for he was soon out of funds, while
Goodman had quite a little sum of
money with him. Wilson asked Good
man for a loan of $1.50. but Goodman
refused, agreeing, however, to buy
Wilson's coat and vest for $1.50 and
to see it back for $1.S0. The sale was
made, and after the game was ended,
Goodman took the coat and vest to
his room. Wilson was allowed to wear
the clothes Sunday, but Monday he
did not return them.
tiwwtliiuiu I)miinl Settlement.
Goodman then set out to obtain eith
er $1.S0 or the duds. He went to the
S. M. Arndt store, where Wilson was
employed, and demanded the coat or
the money. He was informed that
there was no money to be had just
then, so he reached for the coat and
vest, hanging on a hook near the rear
door. He went rapidly out of the
door, and up the alley. Wilson follow
ing in hot pursuit, carrying, so Good
man says, a couple of bricks.
Goodman made good his escape, and
returned to his room. Wilson deter
mined to have the matter brought into
court, so instead of securing the nec
essary $l.Sd to redeem the coat and
vest, he had a warrant sworn out be
fore Magistrate Johnson, charging
Goodman with larceny. The case was
heard this morning, and was dismiss
ed, and the costs, $4.C5 were assessed
Coat in n Pawn Shop.
In the meantime a friend of Wil
son's, named Meadows, had gone to
Goodman's room, secured the coat, and
taken it to a pawn shop. He there se
cured $2 on the goods, and with the
money thus procured paid Goodman
the amount for which he had held the
articles. The outcome of the trial this
morning of Goodman for larceny is
that Wilson is charged with $4.C3 costs
for the case, the coat is now in the
pawn ship, and in order to obtain that,
he must spend a couple of dollars ad
ditional. The hearing of the case oc
cupied the court for nearly two hours.

affairs ever aired in the magistral's
SILENT ON HIS PAST HISTORY
Myers, Who Killed Mayor Dennett of

The upriver papers comment on the
indifference to his fate which Myers,
the slayer of President Bennett of the
Thomson town board seems to feel.

"Those who see the man frequently
say there has been no change in his
