two counts for slander. He asks for
$5,000 on each count, or a total of $10,
000. In the first charge, Mr. Wot labia
ger says that Mr. Burns said, referring
to him these words, "The man who
lived here before aid who now works
on the Island stole two or my doors

upstairs and the other downstairs."
This statement, the plaintiff claims,
was utterly false, and uttered mali
ciously by Mr. Burns, lie says that,
ns a result, he has suffered and hair
been unable to enjoy social intercourse
and happy relations with former ac
quaintances and has also had his credit
tpollcd. Therefor he asks damages to
the extent of f 5,000. The tecond count
is brought because, according to the
plaintiff. Mr. Burns nail, in the pres
ence of Mrs. VVoltshlager, the follow
ing words: "Youae stole two locks off
the doors. Vonse take what other
people steal. Youse stole part of the
walk. Youe stole my scoop shovel."

Big Sewer on Way. In the county
court yesterday afternoon the assess
ment roll for the Fifth ward sewer dis
trict was confirmed, and all that now
remains is to let the contract for the
work which in round numbers amounts
to about $37,000 and which represent,
tbe largest single improvement of its
kind ever attempted in the city. The
sewer district project now has reached
the stage where people who have long
hoped for the convenience of sewer
and water mains may expect to enjoy
the benefits therefrom before another
year rolls around.
Keep Natlck Round House., It has
been decided to maintain the round
house at Natick during the winter for
the engines on the Illinois division the
same as heretofore. It was thought
that all engines would be moved to
Silvls when the division was estab
lished there, but it seems that the of
ficials have different plans. It seems
that the round house facilities at Silvis
are not adequate to take care of the
engines for this division, which makes
it necessary to maintain the round
house at Natick.
Loves Another; Bound Over. Lie-
pold Focke is in trouble again. Last
week he was arrested on a complaint
issued by his wife charging him with
disorderly conduct and Wednesday
night he was bound over to the grand
Jury under $500 bonds charged with
wife abandonment. Focke's troubles
began when he left his own land and
decamped for America. He did not
bring his wife with him to the new
world, but promisM that as soon as he
secured money enough he would send
for her. But after coming to Moline
he met Mrs. Anna Ticken and started
boarding at her home, which is at 508
Seventeenth avenue. Time went on
and Mrs. Focke waited to be invited to
Moline .but the invitation did not
come. Her husband sent her money,
but did not urge her to follow his foot
steps. However, the wife decided to
come anyway, and on arrival found
her husband boarding at tbe home
of Mrs. Ticken. The couple went
to housekeeping, but as time went
on Mrs. Focke found that her hus
band was enamored over another wo
man in the city and remonstrated with
him. He became angry and struck
her and then followed his arrest and

this city who wish her great happi
ness. She is a niece of Mr. and Mrs.
Eckerman. After a two weeks' tour
the young people will be at home to
their friends in Galesburg after Feb.
Again Appears. A moderation in
the weather causes the terror of the
night to appear. Again "Overcoat
Jack" has made his presence felt. Wed
nesday night he was seen In the vi
cinity of Twelfth avenue and Ninth
and Tenth streets. He succeeded in
frifihtening a few lady pedestrians, but
before authorities appeared upon the
scene he disappeared.

strora and Miss Emma V. Peterson
were married at the home of the
bride's mother, at Ninth street and
