!A,MS AT TRUSTS
Attorney General Stead Has Bill
to Revive Measure Passed
CHANGED TO CONSTITUTIONAL
Lines Common Carriers Prop
erty Rights in News
Springfield, 111.. Feb. 24. Attorney
General Stead has drawn an anti-trust
bill, which soon will be introluced in
the legislature. The measure will be
doubly interesting as the product of the
attorney general and as indicating the
position of the new administration to
ward combinations of capital. It pur
poses in a general way to reenact the
antitrust law of 1S93. whiih war, de
clared unconstitutional, and to
loDuranrr omlilnf I'liuhiM tt-d.
.One of the new features concerns
the insurance business and makes it
illegal "to combine in any association
or agency, or make any contract or
agreement to establish uniform or non
competitive rates of interest or insur
ance or compensation charged for the
lor.n of money or the guarantee of in
demnity for the loss of life or properly
by accident or disease."
Illtin for -Home Ilullrier."
By another bill which Mr. Stead ha?
prepared it is planned to put coopera
tive home associations out of business.
There have- been numerous complaints
regarding this business, but it has been
so carefully conducted as to afford few
chances of legal attack.
Such associations sell stock which
entitles the holder:: to tickets in draw
ings. Holders of the lucky numbers
are givci loans with which to buy
property and build homes. It has been
charged that in many instances th
propei ty find.-: its way back to the "as
sociation" in a remarkably short time.
liy charging an exces.-ive license
fee it in prepos. d to 11, it next to
impossible for such business enti r
prises to exi: ;. The bill provides that
!hey shall deposit ?.Vi,imm with the state
auditor as a guarantee that the
ie-s will be conducted legally,
that they shall make reports to th.
it r. Deposits df such amounts,
thought, will be an eft". ctual b
nio.-t of these utuh-i takings.

ceiving it and for storage at the place

vides a schedule of rates to be charged
for each barrel.
The railroad and warehouse commis
sion is to be given supervision and
control of the lines and power to es
tablish reasonable rates, not in excess
of those set forth in the schedule.
Property Right In fw.
A bin giving property rights in news
was presented by S. E. Erickson. It
provides that the right is not lost af

appropriating news which has been
gathered by any person or corporation
for the benefit of his or its patrons may
be sued for. damages by the injured
person or company.
Deplored by Rabbi Fineshriber
Address Before Tri-City
The business met ting of the Tri-
City Press club, held last evening at
the Harper house, following u sup
per that was served at G:Cu, and to
which 25 of the members sat down,
was devoted to planning the details
for the annual entertainment of the
club next months at the Buris opera
house, in IaveniKrt, the feature of
which is to be a lecture on "Russia
and Its Modern Problems." by RabbJ
W. II. Fineshriber. the scholarlv Das
tor of the Jewish synagogue of Dav
enport. Rabbi Fineshriber was a guest of
the club last evening, and treated the
members to an informal discussion of
his ideas of what modern journalism
should be, and in which he deplored
the spirit of commercialism that has
been permitted to overshadow the edi
torial personality that in his view,
should predominate in the conduct of
a newspaper, as it did in the years of
the past. The rabbi, however, was
optimistic, and he had hopes that
model n journalism eventually would
return to the paths carved out by the
fathers of the profession. The rabbi
said that, he had chosen "Rus
sia and Its .Modern Problems" as
his subject for the Press club lecture
because of the identification of his
race with the history of that country,
and because he had devoted himself
clo-ely to the study of the conditions
prevailing in the domain of the czar.
A discussion of this subject should
prove especially interesting at this
time (,n account of the struggle that
is going on wiihin that country and
tn account of its war with .Japan.
This lecture should and doubtless will
prove one of the intellectual treats
of the season, nud an audience that
will fill the theatre is anticipated.
There will be several musical num
bers by the prominent talent of the
tri-citie in addition to the lecture.
The club admitted to membership Roy
A. Sears, ft the Argus, and Jacob
Rachman. of the Davenport Times.

LARRY'S ROAD BILL
Measures to Build Permanent
Highways Introduced by
Magill in House.
PROVIDES FOR STATE AID
Strong Opposition Promised, Some
Seeing Scheme to Sell Drain
age Canal Stone.
The state administration's hard roads
bill was Introduced ji the house at
Springfield yesterday by Representa
tive Magill, of Moline, chairman of the
hard roads committee and on his mo
tion 12.000 copies were ordered printed
for distribution over the state.
The bill provides for the apiointment
of a non-partisan board of three state
highway commissioners who are to be
appointed by the governor and to serve
without pay and shall have jurisdiction
over all roads in tho state built under
this law. A state engineer is also to be
appointed. The bill appropriates $100.
000 per year for two years for state
aid and any township building roads
under this act shall pay one-fourth the
county oue-fourth and the state the re-
maining half. Whenever a township
wishes to take advantage of the act it
shall petition the county board of su
pervisors for state aid.
31 MM Auk Stair AI.I.
The board of supervisors in turn
shall petition the state department for
aid. Townships are to be the judge of
material to be used. Not less than one
nor more than three miles are to be
built in one township in any year. The
bill also provides that in case a town
ship does not want to build roads,
abutting property owners may petition
for state aid and bear township pro
portions of cost.
Provision is made for protests by
real estate owners in a township. The
state commission is given authority to
negotiate with railroads for low rates
on road building material. All roads
built under the act must be properly
maintained by townships. The bill
carries a small appropriation for ex
Seent llnnjter In Hill.
An opposition cry against the gov
ernor's plan js heard in some quarters,
and it is called the "hard roads con
spiracy." It is at alleged that a
clique is trying to sell the governor a
"gold brick" because it is suspected
that the dumpings from tho drainage
canal known as "the Alps," owing to
the minature mountainous appearance,
along the banks of the canal, will be
scattered over the state to make money
for the proprietors of the quarries. The
southern penitentiary at Chester has
unlimited stone quarries for the con
victs to work to provide material for
hard roads, but Joliet has none, ami it
is charged that the Joliet supply will
come from the drainage canal.
