county that pays a teacher $23 per
month, and doubtless the is receiving
all that she is worth. If she were worth
more she could command it. I do not

PICKS LOCK OF HIS CELL
Had Served Terms in Sing Sing and
Joliet In Local Rob-beries.
A story has just leaked out to the
effect that one of the most daring
criminals of the country recently suc
ceeded in eluding the vigilance of the
Davenport police department and
making his escape from one of the
cells at the station, where tw was be
ing neiu lor sweating while under a
3u-day sentence, imposed to hold hbn
until the grand jury could take hold
of the case and indict the man for
the more serious crime of burglary.
While the details of the case come
from outside sources, they are so mi
nutely given that the story seems con
sistent and reliable.
The story is that C. M. Moran. an
ex-convict of both Sing Sing and
Joliet. has made his nest in Daven
!ort for the past eight months, his
headquarters being located at one ot
the East end resorts. There he had a
complete alarm system, consisting of
two bells, coils of wire and a storage
battery, installed, by means of which
he was advised of the approach of a
police officer or other authority of th
It is understood that for xome time
the local police had the man under
surveillance and on Jan. 3 arrested

iu which much stolen plunder was dis
covered. A part of this consisted of
the goods stolen at the Reynolds hard
ware store and other places which had
recently been burglarized in the city
across the river.
IImm llren Cone for Wrrk,
Upon this discovery being made,
Moran was given a -lu-day sentence as
a means for bedding him until he
could be taken before the grand jury
and an indictment returned against
him by that body. While being con
fined at the station, it Is alleged that
the prisoner picked the lock to his
cell and made his escape a week ago
last Sunday, since which time nothing
has been seen or heard of him. It is
fair to presume therefore thai he has
made good his escape.
At the same time that Moran was
arrested, another individual giving the
name of Ed Meiller, was taken in tow
upon suspicion of being an accomplice
of Moran. He too was given a :i0-day
sentence upon the same charge of va
grancy, but as no evidence of guilt
was found against him in connection
with the operations of Moran. he was
