One Paper's Special on Important News
Appropriated by Contemporary.
The Davenport Democrat was
beaten out of an important
news item Tuesday afternoon
through the mistake of a messen
ger lniy taken advantage of by its con

ing the Democrat's version, to which
the offender has not made answer, th
Star has stooped to unprofessional
conduct unprecedented iu the tri-city
journalistic field. The Democrat had
a query from its corrcsitomknt :'t

Informations were filed in the coun
ty court this morning by State's At

saloonkeepers charging them with
keeping their places of business open
on Sunday in violation of the state
law. Those against whom informa
tlons were filed are: Fred Leavens.
John Mey. August Mey. Ed Ward. H.
August Paulsen. Swan Larson, Her
man Kuhne. Herman Cederberg. Wil
liam Bartlett. A. O. Johnson and
George Carpenter. Mr. Leavens is
manager of the ilanufacturers hotel,
in connection with which a bar is
maintained. The others have saloons
in the business district of the city,
and heretofore have not been made
to feel the penalty of the law for the

The prosecution of th. manager of
the Manufacturers has created a sen

informant. Mr. Scott has declined to
reveal the Identity of his nform:i:u.
either in the case of Mr. Leavens, or
any other saloonkuepor who h:is i -i n
caught in the present instance. He
states that if Mr. I.eaver.s choosos t

Do Not Suppress a Cough.
When you have a cough, do not try
to suppress it, but remove the cause.
The cough Is only a symptom of some
disease, and the disease is what you
should cure, then the cough will stop
of itself. The most common cause of
coughing is a ceild. Anodynes will
promptly suppress the cough, and
preparations containing chloroform
opium, etc., are used for that purpose,
but they do not cure the cold. Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy, on the other
tand, does not suppress the cough, but
relieves it by removing from the throat
and lungs the mucous which obstruct
ed the breathing and allaying the irri
tation and tickling In the throat It
also opens the secretions and effectu
ally and permanently cures the cold as
well as the cough. For sale by all
