WEST HOLDS LOT
Jury Finds Adversely to Claims of
Mr. Hosford in Eject
PURCHASE IS MADE IN 1870
By Father of Defendant, But Only Par
tial Payment is Made and No
Deed is Given.
The jury that heard the evidence in
the ejectment suit of Schiller Hosford
against George West, of Moline, this
morning reported a verdict for the de
fendant in the circuit court. Hosford
will appeal likely.
Unusual features make it one of the
most interesting cases from a legal
viewpoint that has been 'heard in the
court the present term.
Despite that West had no record of
title to prove his ownership in the
property, which consists of a house
and lot of the approximate value of
11.000, the jury took him at his word
that he had rightfully come into pos
session of the same at the death of
his father the latter having bought and
partially paid for it.
Kalla to ;! a Dml.
The lot formerly was part of a brick
yard operated by John Hilt who came
to Moline from La Porte, Ind., in 1S70.
When the property got too valuable
for this purpose it was platted by Hilt.
who afterward returned to Ia I'orte,
where he died. One of the lots was
purchased by Andrew West. It was
a contract sale, the purchaser giving
bonds for a deed. He had not com
pleted his payments when Hilt left Mo
line, turning his affairs over to C. F.
Hemcnway. The lot that West had
contracted to buy, with others, fell into
!he hands of John Deere. West work
ed at the Deere plow factory. He was
a poor man and was not disturbed by
the plow manufacturer. When Mr.
Deere died the lot went to his daugh
ter, Mrs. Janette D. Chapman. She
paid, too, that West should remain on
Jadicuirnt In Koriurr Suit.
When Mrs. Chapman died she willed
the lot to her daughter. Mrs. Schiller
Hosford. In 1S9G Mrs. Hosford
brought an action for the ejectment of
West, and judgment in her favor was
entered in the circuit court, but
through loss of the declaration, which
contained a description of. the lot. it
could not be enforced legally. In the
interim Mrs. Hosford has passed
away, ana now her nusoand is seeking
to gain possession of the property that
he maintains rightfully belongs to
him. He has a deed to the lot. An
drew West and his wife died about ten
years ago, and since then their son
(Jtwrge has been living on the lot.
(aura Not Defended.
Two suits were heard before juries
this morning, no defense being made
in either instance. The cases were
those of Dwight Bros. & Co., Chicago,
against K. J. Bronson, for an account
of $58.41. and Hradncr. Smith & Co.,
Chicago, against the Moline Printing
company for an account of $;'24.f)5.
The claims were allowed in full by
the juries. J. F. Murphy was attorney
for Dwight Bros. & Co.. and W. J. En
trikin for Brandner. Smith & Co.
CIRCULATE SEWER PETITIONS
Property Holders Signing for Relief to
Southwestern Part of City.
Petitions are being circulated among
property owners in the southwestern
part of the city for the construction
of H stiwer system and it is stated that
nearly' sufficient frontage has been se
cured 'An the district bounded on the
north by Tenth avenue and on the
west by Tenth street to warrant action
by the city council covering that sec
tion. No one has questioned that the
lack of sewer facilities is greatly re
tarding the development of one of the
city's most promising of the new resi
dence districts but the method of pro
cedure has heretofore been in doubt.
Among those circulating petitions are
City Engineer Treichler, W. E. Bailey,
and P. F. Trenkenschuh. Those in
terested will materially assist the
rause by affixing their signatures at
an early date, if they have not already

The following letter has been re
ceived by State's Attorney J. K. Scott:
Springfield. March 2S, 1905. John K.
Scott. State's Attorney, Rock Island,
111. Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your
favor of the 27th inst. relating to the
proper method of preparing ballots at
the coming municipal election. I am
of the opinion that you are correct in
your conclusions as to the law. The
city clerk has the right to group the
three petitioners named in your letter
under the party title "Independent."
Where the cross is placed in the circle
preceding that title the ballot should
be counted for all of the candidates
whose names appear thereunder. Yours
very truly. W. H. STEAD.
Henry L. Wheelan's withdrawal from
the ticket as the democratic candidate
for city clerk Is a source of disappoint
ment to his many friends all over the
city who had hoped, notwithstanding
his declination to run, that they might
have the opportunity to compliment
him with their votes. The vacancy thus
created on the democratic ticket leaves
a practically clear field to Rock Isl
and's present efficient city clerk, Henry
C. Schaffer. the only candidate against
him being the nominee of the social

At Fifth Street, in
Another fatality took place in Dav
enport this morning by reason of the
iron girders which brace the viaducts
upon the elevated tracks on Fifth

he had failed to find work and was
contemplating returning to Minnesota.
To Officer Sanford Jones gave his home
