The police were informed yesterday
that something was wrong, and Ward
was located and taken to the bank,
where he was closely questioned.
While there a telephone message was
received and Godfrey asked to speak
to Ward. The request was granted,

Moline Man in Hospital With Botii
Legs Broken as Result of
The Moline police department was
called Saturday evening to investigate
a most peculiar accident, and as a
result a man named Jordan is held
by Magistrate Olson under $1,000
bonds on the charge of ma hem pre
ferred by Charles Prather. Prather
and Jordan had been boarding at the
Selander boarding house in Moline for
some time, and were roommates.
There had been ill feeling between
them, Jordan claiming that Prather
had a habit of getting very intoxicated
and returning to the room in that con
dition, making life disagreeable for
Jordan returned from a boilermak
er's dance in Davenport in the early
morning hours Sunday, and it is said
that he was somewhat intoxicated. A
few moments after he had entered the '
boarding house, Prather was cither
thrown or fell from the second story I
to the sidewalk, the fall resulting in
the fracture of both legs and the right
ankle. He was removed to the city
hospital, and his condition is reported
to be serious. He charges Jordan with
having thrown him through the win
dow, because he, Prather, was intoxi
cted. After an examination Judge
Olson held the former for a further
investigation, under the bond named.
In default of the bail, Jordan is being
held by the police.

The above call should receive a re
sponse from every democrat in Rock
Island. The visit of a candidate of a
great party for the high office of gov
ernor should awaken a lively interest
not only on the part of the party whose
standard bearer he is, but with the
public at large. Senator Stringer,
through his 12 years in the Illinois
legislature, has become one of the best
known men in the state, and he is like
wise one of the ablest and most bril
liant speakers. He should be accord

Sat unlay evening, and even those who
may not agree with him politically
should hear him for the truth's sake

ward A. Kimball. C. S. D. His address
was smooth, fluent, intelligent, and il

Dr. Charles E. Francis, in introduc
ing the speaker, said substantially:
In this present age and generation
the term Christian Science has be
come a somewhat familiar one, not
only in this community, but through
out, the length and breadth of our land.
Within a few years. Christian Scien
tists, as a denomination, have increas
ed largely in point of numbers and in
fluence. They have erected magnifi
cent and costly churches in the prin
cipal cities of our country, and I am
informed that, although many of them
are large and commodious, they are
fairly crowded with people Sunday af
ter Sunday, and I much regret that
such is not the case with some of our
long-established churches of the pres
ent day. Standing, as I do. outside
their circle, I have often wondered
what peculiar forces of attraction
could bring into their fold such large
numbers of individuals, so many of
whom are highly cultured, remarkably
intelligent and refined, and in many
We have with ns this evening a dis
tinguished gentleman whom I have
been asked to introduce to this aud
ience, and I trust that he may tie able
to acquaint us with the underlying
principles of Christian Science, that
we may be able to judge of its merits
without permitting our minds to be
fettered with prejudice.
The lecture is to be given tomorrow
evening is under the auspices of First
Church of Christ Scientist of this city.
No charge for admisison and every
body will be made welcome.
