for September shows a total enroll

capture any of the burglars and sneak
thieves who have been operating here
abouts, and this fact has set Detec
tive Al Frees to thinking. In his ex
perience in tracing the missing sacks of
potatoes from the cars in the Nahant
yards the other day, he bethought him
self of the case with which blood
hounds might have traced the two
riflers of the C M. & St. P. refriger
ator cars. The thought has taken
such possession of him that he has ne
gotiated the purchase of a pair of
bloodhounds at a cost of abount $150,
which he will use in his business and
which will doubtless become a source
of revenue to hini. "These hounds,"
said he, "will earn more money in a
year than I can, and prove of invalu
able assistance to the police." Mr.
Frees resides in the west end of the
city. The bloodhounds may come from
the same stock as that of the Fair
field hounds. When they arrive in the

The next case which will be tried
in the district court here, before the
petit jury, will be that of William
Harvey vs. the C, R. I. & P. railway
company, to recover the sum of $10,000.
The plaintiff is represented by Helmick
& lioudinot. and alleged that in the
spring of this year, while at work in
the shops in East Moline, he had his
hand sawed off at the saw table of the
wood shop, thus crippling him for
life. The saw table, just as it was
when the accident occurred where
in Harvey lost his band, is now being
erected in the court room, and will be
an exhibit in the case.

MORE POULTRY EXCEPT GEESE IN WEST:
COMMISSION HOUSE LOOKS UP FACTS
The. annual report of poultry condi
tions in the west, based upon returns
from Illinois. Nebraska. Iowa. Kansas,
Missouri and other states, has just
been issued by the Sprague Commis
sion company of Chicago. The report
shows a material increase in the sup
ply of chickens, a fair increase in the
supply of turkeys and ducks, and a
falling off in the supply of geese.
The season was rather cool, but on
the whole quite seasonable, but in
some sections of the southwest, in the
far west and north, the heavy rain
fall caused a rather heavy loss in the
early hatchings, especially of turkeys,
many of the young birds dying of wet
and cold. The fertility of the early
eggs also was somewhat affected by
the very cold weather during the win
ter, leaving the stock not in as good
condition as when the winters were
not so severe, but this was overcome
later by more favorable conditions.
From Iowa a number of reports came
that rats had killed off a good num
ber of the early hatchings.
The crops of turkeys is estimated
to be about 15 per cent heavier than
last year. Reports in most instances
claim large increases in the flocks of
turkeys, but some points which raised
a good many turkeys last year re
port a material shrinkage this year.
On the whole, however, commission
merchants look for more turkeys to
come to market during the winter.
The season is unusually late, and
where in other seasons a good many
turkeys have been shipped in up to
this time, so far this year but few
have been received. Then. too. farm
ers are being blessed with good crops
and. being in no need for immediate
money, can afford to allow their tur
keys to run until later.
The report generally indicates a
very material increase in the crop of
chickens, and it is fair to state that
the crop at least is about 20 per cent
larger than than last year. The weath

One of the strongest football teams
in the city has just been organized
and hereafter will be known as the
Davenport Centrals. They will play
their first game next Sunday at the
Davenport baseball park, at which
time the M. & K. team will be their
opponents. The game will be for a
division of the gate receipts at the ratio
of Co and 35 per cent.
The preliminary hearing of Arnold
Beuthien, cashier of the New Liberty
Savings bank, on the charge or em
bezzlement, was again postponed yes
terday afternoon. In granting the post
ponement 'Squire Hall stated that it
would be the last one and that unless
Beuthien appeared in his court at the
appointed hour tomorrow, his bond for
$3,000 would be forfeited. Inasmuch
as the grand jury now in session has
taken un the Beuthien case for in
vestigation and is expected to return
one or more indictments against him,
it is improbable that his fight in oppo
sition to the charges lodged against
him will be made in the district court
and not at the preliminary hearing
before Justice Hall. In case the grand
jury indicts him. Beuthien will be oblig
ed to stand trial in the district court
no matter what might be the outcome
of his preliminary hearing. The posi
tive assertion of Justice Hall that Beu
thien must either show up Saturday
or have his $5,000 bond forfeited, may
have some effect in hastening nis ar
rival in this city. His arrival here
would result in his rearrest upon the
second warrant which charges him with
embezzlement of $30,000.

Farmers being in good condition finan

Everything points to a large crop of
ducks such at least are the eoncln
sions derived from the reports receiv
ed. The indications are for an in
crease of about 10 per cent over last
year. Late prices have been more
encouraging to fanners to raise ducks.
The crop of geese is estimated to be
about the same as last year, possibly
10 per cent less. Of late the raisins

tomorrow afternoon, and on dope the

season. The feeling has been that
the game would be more in the nature

but the record of the Tipton team and
its weight forecasts "something do
ing." The visitors as a team will out
weigh Moline, the total team weight
being 168 pounds, while Moline's is
but 165. Tipton's great strength seems
to be its center trio. Tracht at cen
ter. 200 pounds, has Lindburg out
weighed, and both Tipton guards have
the call on the local guards in point
of beef. Moline's backfield is seven
pounds heavier than that of the Iowa
boys, but this is made up by Bergin
at quarterback. He has IS pounds
