Cecil Howard Fails in His Habeas
ings TO RECOVER HIS CHILDREN
Who Had Been Given Over to
-tody of the Bethany Asso
o i ' J ciation. "
Walter and Leta Howard, children
of Cecil and Frankie Howard, are to
remain at the Bethany Home until the
runner order of the court. This was
the verdict announced by Judge V. H
Gest in the circuit court this morning
on the completion of the testimony of
fered in support of the petition of ha
beas corpus filed by the fataer to gain
custody of the little ones.
The, Howards separated last August
Mrs. ;il$ward said that she could hp!
longer live with her husband "because
it his. habits. She said that once a
week regularly, after receiving his pay
from the Freemont Butter Tub com
pany, where he was employed, he
would go out and get drunk, not giv
ng her sufficient money to properly
care for herself and little ones.
The boy is 0 years old and the girl
is 4. They are pretty, bright children.
They were brought to court by the
matron of the Bethany Home. During
the hearing the boy divided his atten
tions between his father and mother.
to whom he seemed equally devoted.
.Witch bora With the Molhrr.
Several neighbors who had lived as
neighbors to the Howards testified to
seeing Howard intoxicated, and there
was none who thought him a fit person
to rear the children. Howard is a
.oung man. There was no effort made
o deny his weakness for drink, but
iis attorneys sought to make the point
that he had reformed, and had not in-
iulged in liquor to an excessive degree
for upwards of a month.
Howard is fond of his little one.
and well he might be. for they are the
learest children that a father would
ant. His wife is youthful and pretty
ilso. She was in tears during her re-
c-ital on the witness stand. She said
she had put up with her husband's
fa'u'lrs as long as she was able to.
Finally it became necessary for her
to go out and work to earn money to
support her home. One of the neigh
borhood women told of employing Mr.
Howard to do her washing. The wom
n liked Mrs. Howard. They said she
was a good woman and labored no
ard to get along. They knew how
she had suffered.
Frequently she had to help her hus
band in the house, and she would "re
move his" shoes and clothing and put
hirn to bed. and care for him until he
vas sober enough to return to his
work. There- were times when Mrs.
Howard would draw his pay check, but
she was warned that if she did not
illow him to draw his own money he
would quit working.
ttn tribute tw Support.
When Mrs. Howard left her husband
she placed the children at the Bethany
Home, and since has been contributing
what she has been able towards their
support in that institution. She said
:he knew they were better cared for
there than if they were left on her
hands, for the reason that she had to
work during the day, and did not earn
nough to rent and maintain a house.
Uesides. if she had a house, she woull
have to be away from the children
vhile at her work during the day.
Judge Gest took the view that the
hihlren were better off at the home.
He said they should remain there, as
the mother wished, but that both par
ents would be permitted to visit them
there. The court also ordered that
each contribute towards the mainten
ance of the children at the home. He
asked the matron to report to him. if
pay for their support was not forth
coming from both parents, and If they
failed in this, he would make different
arrangements. Howard was represent
ed by Ludolph & Reynolds, and the
mother and the home by H. M. McCas

LABOR CONGRESS UNIONS
FAVOR BUSINESS AGENT
Committee Has Only a Few More to
Visit Will Have Report Ready
at Next Meeting.
The Tri-CIty Labor congress held a
regular meeting at the Rock Island
Industrial home last evening. The
committee that was empowered to can
vass the sentiment of the unions com
prising the congress in reference to the
proposition to employ a salaried busi
ness agent, through its chairman an
nounced that it would have its report
ready to submit at the next regular
meeting. Only a couple of the unions
remained to be visited. All those
unions that had been asked as to
whether they would be willing to con
tribute to the support of such an officer
answered affirmatively. There appears
to have been a misunderstanding
among the unions of Davenport as to
the method of obtaining the vote on
the proposition to consolidate the cen
tral bodies of that city and Rock Isl
and, and for this reason the verdict
from the other side of the river has
been 'delayed. The Davenport unions
were of the impression they were to
be visited by a committee from the
congress, whereas, the resolution was
that each union was to take a vote on
the question, and report to the con
gress. PERSONAL POINTS.

ROCK ISLAND IS NOT TO
HAVE MACARONI FACTORY
Is an Illinois Corporation, But Con
tinues to Operate in
Two weeks ago there was sent out
from Springfield an item that the
Crescent Macaroni company, of Chi
cago, had been allowed to increase its
capitalization and had decided to
change its locution, to Rock Island.
This was taken to indicate that Rock
Island was to acquire another large in-
lustry, but there was no one in the
city who was able to give any further
information. It was known that
there was a company of the same
name in lavenport, but word from
there was there was no intention of
The mystery was cleared today by
the Davenport company. The com
pany incorporated under the Illinois
laws a number of the original stock
holders having been residents of Illi
nois. In the meantime the Illinois
stockholders have disposed of their in
terests to Davenport people. The com
pany lately decided to increase its cap
italization and to erect a cracker fac
tory in connection with the macaroni
factory. The application for a license
made to the Illinois secretary of sLaf?
was purely an economical move ,tii
save the expense or reincorporatKiu
under the Iowa laws.
