After a session of about 15 days, the

rape; Charles McHugh, William Ivens
and Wallace Weigand, selling lottery
tickets: William Burke, assault with
a deadly weapon.
One hundred thirty-seven witnesses
were examined. The report on the
jail is to the effect that there is no
complaint from the prisoners, and that
the place is as well kept and maintain
ed as Is possible considering the
means at hand. '
It was only to be expected that the
grand jury would take no action
against Charles McHugh. William Iv
ens and Wallace Weigand, as the
whole proceeding was looked upon as
an attempt at persecution of Mr. Mc
Hugh, against whom the unfounded
charges were previously aimed in the
spirit of pure maliciousness.
Of the 22 true bills returned, six are
suppressed for service and of these
five are certified to the county court,
as are all of the misdemeanor cases.
Following are the indictments made

MIDST OF FIRE
Stuart Harper's Motor Car Catches
Blaze from Gasoline Sets Fire
A fire that considerably damaged
Stuart Harper's steam automobile and
for a time threatened to destroy the
barn on the Harper homestead on Sev
enth avenue and Eighteenth street,
occurred last- evening about 8:23,
when the man In charge of the ma
chine was engaged in filling the gaso
line tank of the automobile. Either
from the ignition of gasoline that might
accidentally have fallen on heated
parts of the machinery, or from some
other cause, the under part of the auto
mobile broke into flames, and quickly
spread to the gasoline. In a moment
the entire interior of the barn was in
flames. The fire department was sum
moned, and the meiv at the barn, at
taching a small hose, extinguished the
flames in the lower part of the build
ing and about the automobile. The
flames had spread to the upper floor
however, and the services of the de
partment were required to check this
The damage is largely confined to
the automobile Itself. The tires and
all the upholstering and trimmings of
the vehicle were destroyed. But slight
damage was done to the building,
though the furniture was badly

TO TALK IT OVER
Retail Merchants Want Voice of
Citizens on Telephone
MASS MEETING IS CALLED
Men Posted on Subject Will Be Heard
Merchants Also Recommend That
Stores Close All Day May 30.
In view of the situation in which the
city now finds itself with reference to
its relations with the Central Union
Telephone company, the directors of
the Rock Island Retail Merchants' as
sociation request the attendance of ev
ery telephone user in the city at a mass
meeting of citizens, which will be held
at Turner hall Friday evening at S
o'clock. The purpose of this meeting
is to discuss the telephone question as
it applies to the city's interests, that
a consensus of opinion may be obtain
ed as to the best method of procedure
for the protection of telephone patrons
as well at the taxpaying public. Speak
ers well posted in telephonic matters
will be present, and as this is a very
important question, a large attendance
is requested. Some time ago the mer
chants asked the council to go ahead
with the fight in the coirrts, but under
the circumstances the question arises
as to how far the matter should be car
ried in a legal contest. It is now desir
ed to consult the people who will be
taxed to pay for the fight as to wheth
er or not it should be carried further
if a satisfactory agreement can be con
summated. To Clone All Day.
At an adjourned meeting of the di
rectors of the Rock Island Retail Mer
chants' association yesterday, the di
rectors voted to recommend to the mer
chants of the city that the city's stores
be closed all day Memorial day. It has
been the custom of the merchants of
the city to close their stores only in the
afternoon, and to remain open all
morning. This, it Is felt, should be dis
continued, and the stores closed all
day in memorial to the country's fallen
heroes, it is probable that this rec
ommendation, coming as It does from
the Retail Merchants' association, will
meet with quite general favor.
