All Depends on the Director. The
director of a band or orchestra has no
easy task to perform in leading his or
ganization through a completely suc
cessful performance. William Weil is
one of the youngest directors of large
musical organizations in the country.
Weil's band numbers nearly 5o high
class musicians. Hut the young macs
tro has worked his way from the chairs
to the platform through his own ambi
tion and abilities, and is conceded to
be one of the most successful of direc
tors. He directs with remarkable
vigor and prec ision, and with conspicu
ous grace. His programs are said to
invariably contain noteworthy selec
tions, though enough that is brilliant
and popular. The famous band will ai-

Sues fop Slander. A new sensa
tion which comes as incidental to the
discussion of the city lighting question
was sprung yesterday afternoon when
Schmidt & Vollmer. acting for Attor
ney E. M. Sharon, filed, in the district
court, a petition against Charles Grilk,
claiming $5,000 for slander. In his peti
tion, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct.
13, before a large audience, Mr. Grilk
attacked his professional character
and accused him of professional dis
honesty and duplicity. He says that,
in referring to the contract between
the city of Davenport and the Daven
port Gas & Electric company or its
predecessor, Mr. Grilk spoke, in fact or
in substance, the following words:
"The person who drew that contract
was trying to serve two masters and
the city, being a party, got the worst of
it." Mr. Sharon says that at that time
he was city attorney and that the re
mark was meant for him. The speech
in which it is claimed these words
were uttered was delivered by Mr.
Grilk before an open meeting of the
Probably Suicide. The body of a
man which showed signs of having
been in the water for some days, was
discovered under a raft at Mueller's
saw mill yesterday. It was identified
las that of Charles Juergens. The float
jer was found by George M. Creamer. It
is generally believed that the man sui
cided as he was noticed to be morbid
and melancholy several days before he
disappeared. Mr. Juergens was em
ployed at the Kohrs Packing company
and lived on Sixth and Division
streets. He disappeared several days
ago. He was born in Germany about
70 years ago, and was married there
at the age cf 30 years. After living
there three years he moved to Daven
port. Shot in Foot. George Cyphers, son
of Eugene Cyphers, the well known
assistant at the Boies undertaking par
lors, had a narrow escape from being
seriously injured by a rifle shot wound
Sunday. In company with several oth
er lads. George was out hunting, when
in some manner his rifle was prema
turely discharged. It happened that at
the time of (he discharge, the barrel
was pointing downwards. The ball
ploughed through the foot and fortu
nately the wound caused Is slight and
not at all dangerous.
Leaves Her Family. A pitiful case
of a wife and mother leaving her home
and deserting a husband together with
five little children has been brought to
the notice of the police. The woman
was taken to the house of detention and
efforts are now being made to reconcile
her and her husband in order that she
may be taken back home. The woman's
name is Mrs. Andrew Hess and her
home is in Long Grove. Her husband
came to the city this morning and
now every force that can be brought
to bear is being used in order to con
vince the woman that her place Is at
home with her five children, who are
still of tender years and need her care.

question of evening services has be

other churches. The time of holding
the service was changed some time ago
from "7: 30 to 5 o'clock in the hope that
the attendance would be Increased, but
there has been but little change. The
attendance at the vesper service is so
much smaller than it should be that the
congregation will be given an oppor

to the time of holding the evening
service. Cards were included in me
