THE ARGUa SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1905.
E6e Best New Year's
Resolution Ever Made
And the one that will surely remain unbroken, is the re
solve made by many housewives in this city "to do all
their grocery trading at Shields." It is a resolution that
nut only does not eaJl for a sacrifice, but. is one that,
the longer it is kept, the more pleased the customer and
i he better satisfied a satisfaction which is only known
to those who trade at. this popular store. And to say
nothing of the raring an important item with every
housewife, who practices true economy. It will surprise
you how much farther your Money for household ev-l-n:u-z
will go, after you have once become a regular
patron of this store, and once you have begun, you will
wonder why you hadn't started before. It isn't too late
to begin now. Do these prices appeal to you always re
membering the Shields' quality?

CITY IN DEFAULT
Eventually Will Have to Pay Bil
TOO LATE TO RESCIND ACTION
Should Have Been Done at Meeting
Suceeding One at Which Ac
count Was Allowed.
The city of Rock Island still is in
debted to C. F. Gaetjer. commissioner
of Longview park, in the sum of $450.
The bill was allowed one month ago,
but payment has been refused on the
ground that the council failed to desig
nate from which fund the money should
Some of the aldermen, following the
meeting at which' the bill had been
passed, announced that they would
Lcltange their vote "at the succeeding
fmetins. when it jwas said a move
would be made to rescind the action in
allowing the bill.- But this action was
never broached before the council
Hence, legally, the council has default
ed, if there was ever a serious intention
not to pay Mr. Gaetjer, and he is en
titled to the amount mentioned.
The council cannot now rescind the
action. It is too late. It should have
been done at the meeting next succeed
ing the one at which the bill was al
lowed. This is the opinion of V. 1
Ludolph, the city attorney. There was
a report that Mr. Gaetjer was to pe
tition for a writ of mandamus to com
pel payment. But Mr. Ludolph says
that he has not heard of any such
move by Mr. Gaetjer.
Mr. Ludolph states that where the
council fails to specify the fund from
which a bill is to be liquidated The
amount shall be taken from the general
or contingent funds. He says there is
no getting around the fact that the city
has allowed Mr. Gaetjer's bill and legal
ly owes him the $450.
So Salary For rummlaaloirm. ' - '
No act of the council in the past
year has called forth more discussion
than has the Gaetjer bill. Mr. Gaetjer.
none will, disavow, is entitled to all he
asked, and more for his labors perform
ed in Longview park. But the legal
proposition involved has been the stickler.-'
The city ordinance states specific
ally that there 'shall be no compensa
tion iri fcdnnectloh' with the position of
city park" 'commissioner. There are
three parks:' The men who have served
as commissioners have taken a prida
in their work that they feel has repaid
them for whatever sacrifces In the mat
ter of labor or time that they might
have made in the performance of their
official duties. In the case of Mr. Gaetjer,--however,
he was given charge of
the park 20 times in acreage larger
than either Spencer or Garnsey
squares. It was yet in its native wild
ness when he assumed the position of,
commissioner. He would start out In
the morning to look over work in the
south half and would not be able to
get back before nightfall. When a child
was lost in the city he would be culled
upon by the police department to ascer
tain if a little one answering the de
scription of the missing had gotten Into
the 40 acre wilderness, and he would
spend a day wandering through the. val
leys and trees. But these were labors
of love, as well as duties bearing upon
the caring of the grounds.
Ilimim Aftrr (Jaetjer Claim.
What Mr. Gaetjer asks nay for Is
the housing of the park tools, and the
flowers, and for the use of his horse,
and for stationery, and for stamps, and
a horde of other incidentals that he
claims did not enter Into the work that
the commissioners of the other parks
had to perform. The bill covers three
years. Mr. Gaetjer was told by the al
dermen that the mistake that he had
made was in not presenting an ex
pense account at the end of each year.
His answer was that It was simply
neglect on his part, as he never thought
that the council would refuse payment
when made acquainted with the circum
stances. The council did not discredit
the bill. The council thinks It is due
Mr. Gaetjer. The council after allow
ing the bill, believed a serious mistake
had been made; the other commission
ers were being heard from, and so was
the public. If there was a mistake,
;t( should have been remedied while
thjrre! was yet time. Now it is too late.
