ords that would show whether there
were women kept .in connection with
the saloons. He offered his own little
police record to show how few there
were, but this was a joke with the al
dermen as they have come to fully un
derstand that it is no sign that the
women are not there simply because
the mayor has not seen it proper to ar
His police record is looked upon as
a ridiculous document to give evidence
as to the women in and about the sa
loons, when there is ample proof on
the county record. The raids of the
sheriff on the authority of the state's
attorney made this a matter of publia
record and it is galling to the muyoi-.
He attempted to exp'.ain this by inti
mating that the women were brought
from Davenport for the purpose of be
ins "raided." He attempted to justify
his own administration by saying that
Mayor McConochie ran the city in the
same way. but he was called by Alder
man Eckhart.r.vho reminded him that his
campaign for election to the otfice of
mayor was made on the alleged rotten
ness of the McConochie administration.
Hear from Liquor Denier.
Alderman Robbins in presenting the
report of the committee stated that
representatives of the liquor dealers'
associat on met with the committee
and endorsed the proposition of elim
inating the accessories to the dives.
A communication was received
signed by the Rock Island Liquor
Dealers Protective association. endors
ing the petition in part, and stating
that not all of the signatures were bona
fide and that not all who signed were
aware of what they were signing. The
request was made that all petitions of
this kind in the future be ignored un
less emanating from the liquor deal
lliirsliiK Ilenresent Dea!cr.
Representing the dealers, A. D. Hues
ing stated to the council that some
ot the saloon keepers were induced to
sign by representations that it was a
potition for Sunday opening. Some or
the aldermen suggested that the mat
ter go over for one week and allow any
who wish td to withdraw their names,
bit' the concensus of opinion was that
the aldermen were not acting on the
petition, and that the taking off of a
'few names would not alter tha condi
tions as they exist.
Invent icalr Itond.
Alderman Anderson introduced a res
olution, which passed, authorizing an
investigation of the security on the
bond of Mayor MeCaskrin. two of the
bondsmn having been withdrawn
Aldermen Dauber and Trefz leaving
J. P. Williamson alone. It also pro
vides for the raising of the bond of
the major of Rock Island to the
amount of flO.OOO, this not applying to
the present executive. The resolution
further provided for an investigation on
the law of the question of raising the
bond of the present officer. .
Refune to Confirm.
Mayor MeCaskrin again presented
the name of John P. Sexton for con
firmation as city marshal, but the
council again refused to confirm, the
vote being the same as before, 7 to 5,
all of the republicans voting in the
negative except Alderman O'Connor,
who ha cast his lot with the democrats
Alderman Anderson offered a reso
lution, which passed 10 to 2, Aldermen
Dauber and Trefz voting nay, con
demning Mayor MeCaskrin fot his ac
tion in appointing John P. Sexton as
city marshal and acting chief of police
'n the face of the refusal of the council
to confirm. It was declared to be an
intentional insult to the council and
liable to be detrimental to the discip
line of the polica department. The
resolution further provided that the
council disclaimed any responsibility
for the acts of Mr. Sexton as such pur
ported officer and refuses to be re
sionslble for the payment of any sal
ary to him.

have a beamed ceiling and C-foot oaken
wainscot. The double parlors will oc
cupy the west side across from the of
fice and dining room, with a corridor
between to give access to the front
from the kitchen without trespassing
upon the privacy of the other rooms;
in fact this is noted throughout. Back
of the parlors is fitted the housekeep
ers' room to be used as a sitting room,
for sewing, etc., from where it will be
quite convenient in answering the
front door calls without the necessity
of descending the stairs.
A well fitted butler's pantry with
warming closet, cupboards, etc., and
space for the refrigerator, leads to
the kitchen, which room has been rear
ranged with inside stairway to cellar
and back stairs to the upper floors.
The parlors will be finished in enam
el but with waxed oak floors, with the
same floors throughout except that lin
oleum will be used in the pantry, kitch
en, and baths. The halls, office, dining
room, and the rector's suite are in oak
with old mission finish. The rector's
study and chamber are across the
front of the building. 15 feet deep, and
25 and 11 feet in length respectively,
with a large fireplace in the east end
of the study, and with a copper cov
ered oriel window in the center of the
front, and with ample wall spaces for
book cases, etc. I-rge closets are
provided for the chamber as well as
for all tke second tory rooms. A pri
vate bath room is placed between the
rector's chamber and the guest room.
The curate's suite of rooms are placed
over the dining room, provided with
fireplaoe and book shelves. A house
keeper's room is built over the present
kitchen, and hall and linen closets are
conveniently located. The present
bath room will not be changed, answer
ing as a general toilet. Ventilation is
amply provided for by the stair win
dows which are in a bay on the land
ing in a bay on the east side, which is
carried up to correspond to the bap
tistery opposite. There will be a large
storage space in the attic which will be
amply lighted with windows and fitted
with a commodious stairway. A partly
enclosed porch opening off the second
story at the rear will serve for airing
rugs and bedding. In the cellar will
be provided separate rooms for the
laundry, boiler and fuel rooms, concret
ed and plastered over ceiling to pre
vent the dust arising. Vegetable, store
and other rooms are also provided for.
A porch on the cast side of the rectory
and extending from the cloister back
around the dining room will insure pri
vacy for recreation, etc.
Xrv IleatitiB Plant.
A new heating plant will be provided
for both the rectory and the church;
the radiation of the church being plac
ed in specially built recesses under
the windows, thereby tempering the
otherwise cold air before it descends
upon the heads of the people. Indirect
radiators are conveniently located in
the vestibules and entrances and in
the, chapel to serve as foot warmers.
The electric lighting will be a special
feature of the new church; the scheme
having been studied out by the archi
tect with the assistance of the electri
cal expert. It is what may be termed
the "glow" system in which the source
of light is not discernible and giving
a most wonderful and agreeable effect,
which is quite a relief as compared
with the somewhat "spot" or theatrical
methods in use In other buildings. The
organ will not be forgotten, as the same
will be equipped with an automatic
hydraulic blower located in the cellar
.way from the reach of the frost.

The improvements, which were pro
moted by Dean Quinu soon after he en
tered upon his pastorate, and have
been the subject of his untiring energy
since coming to Rock Island, will in
volve an outlay of $30,000. The success
fit Dean Quinn's efforts in thus convert
ing one of the oldest churches in Rock
Island to one of the newest, bears out
his reputation that preceded him here
as a church builder.

and bound over by a justice of the
peace to the grand jury and sent to
jail. He was indicted by the grand
jury and again sent to jail.
Two JuiIkch Died.
Judge Charles 13.' Parsney of the
circuit court died March 31, and Judge
Robert V. Hirscher June 28, and
Judge Marshall convened court July
19, but made an order there should be
no petit jury. Two terms of court
passed, and in December, 1905, Newly

preme court holds the conviction in
valid, as he was not brought to trial

continuance of his case in March.
Similar Order iu Nnjsel Cane.
The supreme court also rendered a
similar order in the case of Nagle
against the people, an appeal from
Rock Island, where -the prisoner was
not tried within the time specified by
With reference to this decision,
Adair Pleasants and II. A. Weld, at
torneys for William Nagel, say that in
view of the fact that the proceedings
in the supreme court had only reached
the stage of a motion for leave to file
a petition for a writ of habeas corpus,
they are not disposed to interpret this
as a complete victory, although it may

they have ground for a hearing in the
court, and that such hearing has been
