May Have Been AUempt to Kill.
The details of what may have been a
dastardly attempt to cover up t!fb
crime of robbery by murder have just
come to light. IjlsI Wednesday night
the home of Uu.U Ujorn, on the Grin
nell road. as visited by a burglar, his
purpose beiug robbery. The Ujorn
bome is part store and part living
rooms. Mr. BJorn is blind. In a draw
er in the store was $40, representing
his savings for several months. This
the burglar appropriated and then bet
fire to the woodwork in the store. The
little daughter of Mr. Bjorn was awak
ened by the smoke and gas and gave
the alarm. The fire fortunately had
not seyured much headway and was
extinguished through the efforts of
neighbors. Had the blaze not been
discovered m early both the occupants
of the house might haTe been seriously
if not fatally, burned.
Denounces Liquor Influence. A
ilight ripp!c of excitement was created
at the close of the conference in the
Swedish Methodist church when Hon.
Alonzo E. Wilson made an assertion
which applied locally. He said: "The
local option bill was defeated by one
vote and the responsibility for two
votes rests on tbe two representatives
from this district. I make a strong
appeal to you preachers to get Into
politics and ki'i rff the members of
the legislature who preferred to bow
down and worship the Liquor Dealers'
association and to elect such men as
would represent northern Illinois and
assist in pasiag the local option bill.
While this bill was before the house
I saw cases of beer taken into the state
house, evidently to induce the mem
bers to stand pat with the liquor ele
ment and quiet any inspiration to sup
port the local option bill. I think so
long as these kind of men are sent to
Springfield, some of whom were drunk
in their seats in the legislature. w(e
cannot hope for much anti-liquor legis
lation. Mr. Wilson is the prohibition
ist member of the Illinois legislature.

secure the immediate possession of the
bridge and then keep it in good repair.
The question arose as to how to pro
ceed to secure possessiem and the may
or finally referred it to the bridge com
mittee for action.
