STREET GAR RIOT
Women Indulge in Disgraceful
Fight on the Bridge Line
RETURNING FROM DAVENPORT

, ," turbance Four Offenders.
Because Rose took it into her head
to do some s:nasliing, a row was start
td on the last bridge line car from
Davenport at midnight, and before it
was over three windows were broken,
four policemen were involved in the
quelling of the disturbance, and three
irls and one man ended up in police
court this morning.
"When I want to smash, nobody can
stop me. I hit Dutch Mary twice aul

apology Rose had to offer when ar

"I'll lay it out in jaM." answered Rose
- with a toss of her head.
Sunday 'Vislit Crund.
A characteristic Sunday night crowd
was on the last car coming from Dav-
nport. About SO people were aboard
and witnessed one of the most disgrace
iul scenes that has ever occurred on a
street car in the three cities. It has
been bad enough for several weeks, but
this was the climax. Tfiere were no
men in the fight, the one who was ar
rested being taken for interfering with
the officer. Rose started the whole af
fair and seemed to be proud of it this
morning when she was before the
court. The other girls attempted to
make excuses, saying that they were

trying to stop the fight, but the officers
said that their language on the car was
sufficient to hold them for "disorder
lies." Four Officer Involved. -
Officers Sexton, Ginane, Kinney and
Page all had to lend assistance in
quelling the riot. Sexton was the first
man on, and he had more than he could
attend to. Ginane was next, and Rose
was turned over to him, while Sexton
took charge of Robert Nicot, who was
with her and interfered. Kinney and
Page saw a rush for the front end
near Twenty-first street. One of the
girls was trying to get out there, and
when Officer Kinney told her she could
not. the answer was. "To hell with
Siuaah A In down.
According to the testimony of those
present, the fight started between Rose
and Dutch Mary, whoever she is, in the
front end, and in a moment somebody
went through the glass. The scene of
the next smashing was nearer the rear
of the car, when another window glass

said Officer Ginane. "and then in the
vestibule she got into a scuflle with a
fellow and struck at him. Instead of
hitting him her hand went through the
"Where do these girls stay?" State's
Attorney Scott asked of Officer Page.
The answer was that two stayed at
a Second avenue place.
"Only one stays there," interposed
Rose, who at all times seemed anxious
that the record should be kept straight
Oeplornblr State of Affair.
"There is getting to be a disgusting
state of affairs on late bridge line cars
recently." said State's Attorney Scott
in addressing the magistrate. "A man
can not take a respectable woman on
these cars after 10:30 at night. There
is cursing and all kinds of talk, and
the street car company can do nothing,
If the offenders were men, the conduc
tor could use means to quiet them that
he can not use with these women."
Lacli of the girls bad a young man
accompanying her, but they kept out
of the trouble, with the exception of
Nicot. the bartender at Ortell's. who
was with Rose. His offense came in in
terfering with the officer and he goes
down for five days with the girls.

Better mail service between the tri
cities is 2. possibility of the near future
and one that will be welcomed by the
business community. For years Rock
Island, Moline and Davenport have had
to depend almost entirely upon the reg

have been slow, infrequent and inade
quate. Relief, if it comes, will be by
use of the Tri-City Railway company.
During the latter part of last week
J. M. Masten. assistant inspector of the
railway mall service, was here and
looked over the situation. Before d3
parting he admitted that the circum

that his report to this effect will influ
