in a short introductory told that the

the government school in Oklahoma.
Of the 29 members, 17 are full-blooded

Republic Iron & Steel Company
Puts Papers on Record in
FEE FOR CLERK WAS $95
One Hundred Thirty-five Printed Pages
Must be Transcribed Upon
A mortgage in the sum of $10,000,000
was filed at the circuit clerk's ofAce
this morning by the Republic Iron &
Steel company, the trust which is in
corporated in New Jersey and controls
the local Sylvan steel works. The doc-1
ument, which covers 135 printed pages
of matter, was recorded at an expense
of $95, the largest fee that has ever
been taken in at the Rock Island office
for recording any single document.
There have been a number of plats,
and mortgages, that required a fee of
$70 to file but the one this morning
sets a new record.
The mortgage is to secure an issue
of $10,000,000 in 5 per cent gold bonis,
and covers all of the property of the
company, in the states of Alabama.
Illinois, -Indiana. Kentucky, Michigan.
Minnesota. Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Itrported In All Stn'ri.
The expense of filing the document
in each of the states will be no small
item. It must be recorded in every
state where the company does busi
ness, and in each county of each state
that they transact business in. The
cost Is estimated at S cents for each
hundred words. To be recorded, the
exact wording of the document must
be transcribed and placed in the rec
ords of the county.
NO POLITICS AT ALL IN IT
Coroner Eckhart Enters Disclaimer in
the Union Card Incident.
Coroner 1 V. Eckhart is somewhat
exercised over the report that it was
through fear of jeopardizing his
chances of reelection that he did not
serve the replevin papers for the se
curing of the union cards of the bar
bers from the three Rock Island shops
that have adopted the "open" policy.
He asserts that it was because of his
personal friendship for the parties
against whom the papers were made
out that he stated he would rather not
officiate. And now comes J. F. Wit
ter the justice before whom the pa
pers wero sworn out. and pleads guilty
to having introduced the political ele
ment to help Mr. Eckhart out of the
difficulty and square him with the par
ties who wanted him to serve the pa
pers. In other words. Justice Witter
made himself the conservator of Con
stable Eckhart's political estate. All
of which emphasizes the fact that toes
are very sensitive at this time of yey.
FRESHMEN WIN COLOR
RUSH FIRST TIV.E AT U. OF I.
j Sophs Unable to Scale Their Pole
Two Suffer Broken Bones
in the Scrimmage.
Champaign. 111., Nov. 2. (Special
Correspondence.) The annual color
rush between the freshmen and the
sophomores here was held this after
noon and was won by the freshmen.
This is the first time in the history of
the University of Illinois that the sophs
have failed to win. The rush was held,
on Illinois field- and at 3:30 to sophs
made their first rush in which they
used their great flying wedge forma
tion which was with some difficulty
blocked by the freshmen.
In this rush the sophs got one man
started up the pole but he was hauled
down at once. After this the sophs
rushed again and again, but all efforts
were futile. The classes were evenly
matched in number though the sophs
had the advantage of experience. The
freshmen pole was about 35 feet in
height and about one-half a barrel of
axel grease was used on it. The time
limit was 43 minutes during all ot
which time the contest was fiercely
waged. Nearly every man lost the
greater part of his clothes in the rush.
The accidents were serious, indeed,
one soph having a leg broken and an
other some ribs while one freshman
had three ribs fractured. It is under
stood here that this is the last rush to
be held here because of the intense
