Arrangtoients Made in Event Excur
sion Steamer is Not Here
to Carry Doctors.
At a meeting of the full committee
of the local physicians preparing for
the state meeting in this city nexr
week it was decided last evening that
in the event that the W. , the exclu
sion steamer, is unable to reach this
city in time for the proposed excursion

be taken out on the Eclipse. A stop
will be made at Grand Isle, where
those who wish to do so may land and
the others continue on the excursion.
At Grand Isle there will be refresh
ments and a vaudeville entertainment.
Capt. Wisherd has done his best to
bring the W. W. here in time for the
doctors but the boat is held at Padu
cah, Ky., on account of the absence
of the necessary life preservers to fit
?ier out as prescribed under the new
rules. These preservers were shipped
from Pittsburg some time ago but the
car containing them is lo.

THE OBITUARY RECORD.
The funeral of Joseph Andrews, the

the pastor of the church. A quartet,
composed of J. A. Johnson, G. C. Wen
ger. Miss Jessie Bogue and Miss Lil
lian Henderson, rendered appropriate
hymns. The services were in charge

of which Mr. Andrews was a member.
Members of the order served as pall
pearers. Burial was made at Chip
Burglars gained entrance to the
Bowlby home at 909 Twentieth street
at 1 o'clock this morning, but were
frightened away by D. Roy Bowlby be
fore they succeeded In getting any
thing. Mr. Bowlby was awakened by
a noise on the first floor of the house,
which he did not understand. Listen
for a while, he heard someone moving
about on the first floor. He first sup
posed it was the servant who had come
in late, but as the sound continued, he
stepped Into the hall, and, seeing a
flash of light, spoke the servant's name.
Instantly there was a sound of hurry
ing feet on the first floor, and Mr.
Bowlby was quickly satisfied that ther$
had been burglars in the house.
An investigation developed the fact
that the men had entered by boring a
hole around the lock in the kitchen
door. The police were notified and re
sponded, but no trace of the burglars
could be found.
Mayor McCaskrin's Inaction Seriously
Interferes With Council's
Licensed to Wed.
Milton David Hamilton Moline
Miss Jennie Serafia Lubdeea. ..Moline
Failure of Mayor McCaskrin so far
to appoint the committees in the city
council is beginning to interfere with
the dispatch of the city's business.
Asked by an Argus representative con
cerning when the appointments would
be made the mayor said he did not
know. Without proper committees to
which business as it arises in the coun
cil can be referred, a special one has
to be appointed for each matter taken
up and confusion will quickly prevail.
The council last Monday was ham
pered because of this and if the ap
pointments are not made before nex'l
Monday little business can be done. In
short, conditions are ripening for a
clash between the legislative and ex
ecutive branches of the cityt unless the
mayor accords to the aldermanic as
sembly the privileges that belong to it.
The W. C. T. U. will give a recep
tion next Tuesday afternoon at 3
o'clock at the home of Mrs. S. J.
Woodin, 922 First avenue. Ice cream
and cake are to be served.
Dr. G. L. Eyster will entertain a
party of Chicago doctors at dinner next
Monday evening. The physicians will
be In Rock Island to attend the meet
ing of the State Medical society.
Among those who will be present at
Dr. Kyster's party are the following:
Dr. Arthur Dean Bevin, Dr. John Rid
Ion. Dr. William Allan Pusey. Dr. Wil
liam H. Wilder. Dr. Ferdinand Henro
tiu, Dr. Franklin II. Martin and Dr.
Robert II. Harvey.
A crowd of young folks gave a sui
prise party last evening for Miss Flor
ence Stephenson at her home. 421 Six
teenth street. A very pleasant even
ing was spent, with games and other
amusements, and refreshments were
served at midnight.
The B. B. Thimble club will hold
a meeting at the Watch Tower next
Monday evening. The guests of the
club on this occasion will be composed
of the organization known as the
Knights of the Needle. The members
of this order are the husbands of the
ladies of the thimble club and are as
follows: H. A. J. McDonald. F. G
Young, F. H. Schroeder. Dr. W. H
Ludewig, W. W. Bogges. E. Warnecke,

ALL THAT THEY NEED IS
WHITE COATS AND HELMETS
On of Mayor McCaskrin's Innova
tions That is Appreciated.
The plan adopted by Mayor McCas
krin of keeping a squad of men con
stantly at work cleaning the streets
of the main business thoroughfares is
appreciated and commented by .all
classes of citizens. ,
The advantage Is, not only in clean
streets, but the act is metropolitan.
All that the mri with the shovels and
carts need is white heln ts and coats.
