possession which Charles Hoke, sher
iff of Livingston county, lib, believes
:e has .stolen. One of the lists of arti
cles found in the possession of Bloom
was enclosed in Sheriff Hoke's letter
to the local police, and the department
here began to inquire. None of the
articles listed corresponded with those
stolen from the Stark Ruser jewelry
store by the burglar, who cut his way
through the floor from the photograph
ic studio above, but they did corre
spond with those stolen from the
Pottharst jewelry store in 1902. A.
Bodenthitn. who has charge of the
jewelry store at the present time, hav
ing purchased the Pottharst interest,
was sent for. He called at the police
station, and when he looked over the
list, identified most of the jewelry as
beJng that stolen from that store.

The hearing before the interstate
commerce commission of the com

adoption of the uniform bill of lading
will be resumed at Washington next
Thursday. The result of the investi
gation at Chicago has been unsatisfac
tory to the railroads, and they expect
to make a better showing at the next
So far as the western railroads are
concerned they are ready to give up
the fight and they have decided. that

Kaatera Road Drtermlaed.
The . eastern roads are reluctant to
retreat from the position they have
taken until they have had another
chance to get more of their side of
the case before the commission. While
they do not expect to be able to put
in the new bill of lading in its present
shape, they are hopeful of bringing
about a compromise that will elimi
nate the features most objectionable
to the shippers.
It is believed that if the word "non
negotiable" is stricken from the new
bill of lading and a few other minor
changes made the shippers will cease
further opposition and acquiesce in the
action of the railroads.

To Enlarge Hotel.
In all probability the Manufacturers
will be greatly enlarged the comin
summer. Business has been so good
since the hotel was opened that the
last few months it has been necessary
to resort to putting extra beds in the
empty store rooms used this summer
for the republican headquarters. This
was before the implement convention
was held here. The stockholders of
the institution are considering the ad
visability of adding another story to
the building, making it a five-story
building, and thus increasing the ca
pacity. Other changes have also been
contemplated, among them being the
removal of the spacious dining room
to the first floor, east of the lobby
which is,-now, used for sample rooms
and making the dining room over into
sleeping rooms. Another important
change is that of adopting the Euro
pean plan of hotel as well as the
American plan. The house has been
run on strictly an American plan but
there seems to bo a demand for the
European plan, as the two will prob
ably be combined.

In the neighborhood of $1,000 was

great crowd of people visited the hall
during the closing evening and the
fair continued till well into the night.
With this profit to be added to the
building fund, prospects are bright
for the extensive changes that it Is
planned to make in Turner hall next

Dies in Iowa.
Mrs. Hannah Johnson, widow of
William Johnson, and a former Mo
line woman, died at her home in Man
son, Iowa, Saturday afternoon of heart
disease, after an illness extending
over a period of three years. She was
born at Manson and after the death
of her husband five years ago, Mrs,
Johnson came to Moline and made her
home with her children, Mrs. Fred
Wells, Edward. Alice, Albert and Nel
lie, on Twelfth avenue and Eighth
street. About a month ago she re
turned to Manson to attend to some
business affairs. Among other rela
tives are J. N. Oline of 1001 Thir
teenth avenue, and Peter Nelson of
1035 Seventeenth avenue, uncles. It
is thought that the trip was too much
for her and that the fatal attack fol

She intended to return to Moline in a
few days. The funeral was held today
