LIFE TERM FOR THE
Billy Myers Quietly Brought Into Court
and Allowed to Plead
Billy Myers, the slayer of Mayor
Dennett, of Thomson, pleaded guilty
to manslaughter before Judge Heard
yesterday in the circuit court at Mt.
Carroll, and was sentenced to life im
prisonment in the state penitentiary.
This transaction was a great surprise
to the people of ML Carroll and Thom
son, for it was done in a quiet way and
scarcely anybody expected that any
thing would be done at this time.
Judge Heard went to Mt. Carroll
yesterday morning to take up some
matters of business in the circuit
court, and the people of the town and
vlclnfty believed that nothing but rou
tine business would be transacted.
Consequently very few pere present at
the court room. By permission of the
state's attorney, Myers was allowed
to be taken from the Jail to the court
room where he at once pleaded guilty.
Under the circumstances there was
nothing left for the judge to do but
pronounce the sentence, which will
cause Myers to go to the state's prison
for life. Mt. Carroll will not. there
fore, be the scene of a hanging as a
result of this case. It is believed by
citizens of Mt. Carroll that if a sec
ond trial had been held, the result
would have been another murder ver
dict and that Myers would have been
sentenced to hang.
MOVE AGAINST SCALPERS
Return Stock Shippers' Tickets to Be
Kept Out of Their Hands.
Ticket brokers are to be deprived of
their supply of tickets from stockmen
if the plan of the Western Passenger
association works as well as the rail
road men at the meeting of the associa
tion at Chicago believe it would. For
years men coming to Chicago. Kansas
City, and other points with stock have
been in the habit of selling the return
part of their passes to "scalpers" when
they did not desire to return home di
rectly by the same road on which their
Presidents of the western lines re
quested the appointment of a commit
tee by the passenger association to see
what could be done. The freight men
were instructed to confer with this com
mittee, which has Just presented its re
port. It recommends that tickets for
the round trip be issued at the point
from which shipments are made. Be
fore being good for the return, these
tickets must be stamped by the Joint
agents of the lines., stationed at the va
rious stockyards. If the scheme works
as well as the committee expects, few
return live stock tickets can be used
by the "scalpers."

SLEUTH SOUGHT SHORT
CUT TO INFORMATION
But Decided Not to Consult Moline
Clairvoyant as to Myers'
Sterling Gazette: Deputy Sheriff
Hart of Carroll county was in Moline
a day or two ago on rather a strange
mission, but his quest was fruitless,
and it is evident that he returned to
his home with the determination not
to divulge the nature of his visit be
yond " the small circle of intimate
Iriends who knew something of the
reason for his sacrificing the holiday
for official matters.
The officials of Carroll county have
had strenuous work the last few
months in ferreting out the crimes
committed by the bandits who shot
the mayor of Thomson. Since the in
carceration of the murderer of the
mayor, it has been learned that he
killed a sheriff in the north, and the
officials of Carroll county are of the
opinion that other crimes could be laid
at his door.
In their quest for information, the
officials learned that there was a re
nowned mind reader or clairvoyant in
Moline, who could unfold the myster
ies of the past and ascertain in a few
minutes what would require months of
diligent work by skilled detectives.
The deputy sheriff arrived in Mo
line shortly before noon, and chancing
to meet a police officer, he confided to
him the object of his visit and what
he hoped to accomplish by consulting
the medium. The officer asked the
name of the wonderful personage
whom the official was about to con
sult, and was surprised to learn that
it was a gentleman who has professed
to possess occult powers, but who
could never inpire the same belief in
As the deputy sheriff and the officer
were talking together, the noted man
in question happened along the street,
and was pointed out as the person
whom the Carroll county man desired
to consult. A glance was sufficient to
convince the deputy that he had been
misinformed as to the ability of the
professed medium, and quietly inform
ing the officer that he did not care to
have the ufcin go into a trance to re
veal any of the mysteries of the past,
lie expressed his willingness to re
turn to Mt. Carroll with the dark mys
teries still unsolved. He perhaps has
arrived at the conclusion that after all
a medium would not be a very good
source of information in regard to
WILLARD TO BE MANAGER
Burlington Second Vice President
Takes Delano's Place.
The duties of the general manager's
office in the Burlington system will
be taken over by Daniel Willard, sec
ond vice president, next Tuesday on
the retirement of F. A. Delano from
that position. Circulars to that effect
will be sent out today. President Har
ris said yesterday that the place of
general manager might not be filled
for some time. The company was in
no hurry about the matter, and Mr.
Willard might act for some time in the
dual capacity of second vice president
and general manager.
Mr. Delano probably will go to the
West Indes soon after his retirement
from the Burlington for a cruise and
a rest. "After that," he said. "I shall
return to Chicago, and find something
else to do. No, I have no definite
plans, except to take a rest when I
leave this office."

GRAFTERS WORKING GAME
Sell Patent Rights For Small Device
and Secure Large Sums.
A couple of sharpers have been work
ing a clever graft throughout the state,
according to all accounts.
The plan is to sell territorial rights
for a patent oil cup, the cup being
made to fit the axles of any vehicle
and feed the oil automatically.
County rights have sold at from $C00
to $S0O. The scheme came to light at
" The stranger engaged the services of
a well-known Pontiac man to help in
troduce the article, and the prospecting
for victims commenced. The first visit
was made to Minonk, where in a day
or so a party was found who bought
the right for Wodford county for $000
cash. Dwight was the next stop, and
there the Livingston county rights were
'sold for $S0O. Then came Joliet, and
Will county rights were captured for
$750. Kankakee county netted $S00.
Then Indiana was invaded. Here
there seemed to be no difficulty in sell
ing county rights for from f GOO to $800
About this time the man who owned
the patent had a call to return to his
home in Iowa for a few days. He sug
' gested that the Pontiac man might
continue the sale of rights as an agent

rights in Indiana for $5,-

accepted the offer. Just as the deal was
closed a third party appeared, and
claimed a prior right to Indiana. It
was finally agreed that the new comer
should pay $0,500 for the Pont'.ac man's
claim, if the latter in turn would pay
$12,000 for both Indiana and Ohio.
This looked like a bonanza, and the
Pontiac man signed the contract and
paid over his share of the money.
Then there was some disappearing.
The stranger disappeared. So did the

IN WORLD OF TRADE
Bradstreet's Weekly Review Show
Commercial Conditions Are
New York, Jan. 7. Bradstreet's re
port says:. Seasonable quiet rules dis-
1 tribution at present. Consideration of
past favorable results and prepara
tions for what is confidently hoped tu
be a prosperous year's trade engross
ed the wholesalers and jobbers. Sup
porting expectations of satisfactory
spring trade to come is the fair volume
of orders .already booked in leading
lines of dry goods, shoes, clothing and
kindred articles and the eenerally
small stocks reported carried In tho
final distributors hands. Western Job
bers stocks are reported 10 to 30 per
cent smaller than a year ago and thi.t
fact, coupled with the knowledge th;it
the coming three and six month's bus
iness will compare with reduced vol
ume a year ago, leads to the belief that
comparisons from now on will favor
the present year.
Other features coming to hand sug
gestive of favorable interpretation are
the activity in many lines of indus
trial effort, notably iron and steel and
its many side lines. December gros.s
railway earnings promise to show a
gain of at least 8 per cent and to close
the year 1904 with a slight gain over
1903, hitherto the best recorded. Tho
strength of Iron and steel prices, if
anything, outruns the demand, whilo
