Attack Slot Machines.
Rev. IT. O. Rowlands, of the Calvary
Baptbst church, and ilott R. Sawyers,
of the Second Presbyterian church,
formed a committee apiointed by the
Davenport Ministerial alliance to in
vestigate the slot machine evil in this
city. This commit tee made a rejort
at the last meeting of the alliance. In
this report the committee attacked the
slot machines stmnsly. The report
showed how numerous the machines
were, and then cited the laws which
applied to the machines and the offi
cers who are responsible for the en
forcement of these laws, in conclud
Ing. the rejjort advised the mem hers to
use their influence with those who have
fcuch machines in their establishment
and with the proper officials to remove
what the commiftee declares to be a
menace to the welfare of the com
munity. . Means to Save Lives.
It is very probable that at the next
meeting of the city council an ordin
ance will be presented which will pro
vide some means of saving the lives
of persons who fall into the river and
drown at points close to the shore.
Some of the aM rrn ii have been con
sidering the mattf-r and look with fa
vor upon such an ordinance. One
member of the council said that many
liveR could be saved if something, in
this line, were done here. It has been
FUggested that life preservers or long
ropes, or both, ! placed at certain
places on the river front. These can
lie used to throw to a person who falls
into the water and is in danger of
drowning. There are many instances
where persona are drowned, close to
the shore, in view of a crowd standing
on the river bank. If a life preserver
had been handy in those times of peril
many persons would doubtless have

The stree t cars which the Davenport
& Suburban Hallway oampany placed
In one-ration on the Fourth of July and
which spread the rails en the loop at
the island se much that the trailers
were derailed, have been repaired. The
Davenport locomotive works is doing
the work. The gauge, by some mis
take, was found to have been half an
inch In excess of what it ought t be.
Tho gauge of the wheels is made to
correspond to that of the other cars of
the line by forcing the wheels farther
em the axle by steam pressure. The
cars will be put into operation again
'within probably a week.

Must Not Swim There.
Two bejys. whose names are Jess
Meckel and Everett Potter, were tried
in police court yesterday for indecent
conduct. The boys, with a number of
others, were swimming in a west end

They have been repeatedly warned not

Street in Bad Shape.
Tbat the south end of Fifteenth
street, on the way to Prospect park, is
in a deplorable condition, is becoming
known to everybody, now that crowds
are daily attending the Chautauqua.
The fact that the street is a mudhole,
full of bumps and hidden pitfalls all
the way from the end of the paving to
the park, makes very little difference
to the people who go to the Chautau
qua by way of the street cars, but they
are all commenting on the condition of
the street, nevertheless.
Spoils Park Site.
Another site that has been very fav
orably considered in the plans now
maturing for a park system for Moline
has now been lost through the pur
chase by R. B. Lourie, sales manager
for the Deere & Mansur company, of
the Healy homestead property on the
bluff in the east end of the city. Mr.
Lourie purchased almost five acres of
the hill and hillside, and will erect
probably next year a residence for his
own use something in keeping with
the beauties of what is considered one
of the handsomest residence sites in
the city with a glorious view both up
and down the river. Mr. Lourie has
purchased 537 feet of the west part of
the eight-acre tract which the Healy
property comprises, and the east line
of his purchase is CO feet east of the
house, which does not figure in the
purchase, but will be moved to another
site by the Misses Healy. The pur
chase price was $5,000. In connection
with the purchase and building there
will probably be other improvements
ihat will be in the line of general im
provement interesting to the residents
of this addition.
Father Near Death.
Rev. Paul Brown, pastor of the First
Congregational church, has received
word from Lake Geneva, Wis., that his
father had suffered a paralytic stroke
and was in a critical condition. Rev.
Brown's father is 76 years of age and
it is feared that the stroke will prove
fatal, considering his age. Rev. Brown
departed for his bedside.
Death of Mrs. Tell.
Mrs. Hannah Tell died at the home
of her niece, Mrs. Seaholm, at Fifty
second street. Walker Station, Thurs
day evening, death being due to the in
firmities of age. Mrs. Tell was born
in Sweden, March 31. 1820, and came
to America in 1881. Her husband died
in Hampton ilyears ago. One daugh
ter, Mrs. Robert Rosenquist, of Rock
Island, and one son and daughter in
Sweden survive. Funeral services will
be held tomorrow afternoon at 2:30
o'clock from the Seaholm home. Rev.
Blomgren to officiate. Interment will
be made in Riverside cemetery.
Formerly Lived Here.
Clement P. Peterson, a former resi
dent of this city. Is dead at Stratford,
Iowa, at the age of 48 years. He came
here when a child with his parents and
was in the drug business up to 1880,
when he removed to Des Moines and
later to Stratford. He had been post
master at Stratford two terms.

His VR. "
LIHU ROOT, who succeeds the
late John Hay as secretary of
state, has often been called the
leader of the American bar. He re
ceives larger retainers than any other
disciple of Blackstone iu the United
States, and It is said that lie abnudons
a law practice worth over $200.MH) a
year to wrestle with the worries and
problems of the state department for
fS.000, the regular salary of a cabinet
officer. Unselfish as this seems, there
are undoubtedly other considerations,
not the least importaut of which is the
fact that his acceptance of the state
portfolio is geaerally taken to indicate
that he is the administration's candi
date for the Republican presidential
nomination In 1SUS.
Secretary Root Is a native of Clinton.
X. Y., and is iu his sixty-first year. He
narrowly escaped being a valentine, for
he was lrn mi Feb. !.", 1845. His fa
ther, Orcn Root, was for many years
professor of mathematics at Hamilton
college, and Elihu was graduated from
this institution in 1S04. Like many
other successful men. he lenrued a
great deal about human nature by
teaching school for a year. In 1S!7 he
received his sheepskin froiu a law
school and began the practice of his
profession. Iu 1SS.I I 'resilient Arthur
appointed him United States district
attorney for the southern district of
New Yuri;, iu lift4 he was a delegato
at large to the New York state consti
t'itioii:il convention, and on -Vug. 1,
he iiteritl I'resldeut McKinley's
cabinet as secretary of war. Many
difficult problems, including the pacifi
cation of the l'blllppliies aud the relief
of the legations in China, were his
to solve, and he handled them with
rare skill and success. Many times
during Secretary Hay's absence lie
performed the duties of secretary of
state, and both Presidents McKinley
and Roosevelt considered him one of
their most able advisers. In January,
1!H4. lie left the cabinet, resumed the
practice of law and In a very short
time won premier honors In his pro
fession. Brainy, studious, thorough, discreet,

a worthy successor of John Hay. As
secretary of war he was at once the
despair and delight of the correspond

past master in satirical repartee. The
papers announced that he was going
to the Thilippiues. "Is It true, Mr
Secretary?" a reporter asked him one
"1 suppose," was the cynical reply,
-thnt I will have to go for the Biblical
rensju-that that which was written
may tie fulfilled."
Being asked what he was going: to do

if I could choose the passenger list I'd
take 'em out in the Atlantic ocean and
"lo you expect to have any commu

"I suppose so," replied the secretary,
"unless I give appointments In the ar

There was gossip to the effect that
Minister Conger was in disfavor with
the president. "What will the presl

ly, "that the president, with due regard
for all the niceties of oriental etiquette,
