TO TAKE CHANGE
Attorneys for William Nagel Will
Go to Henry County
COURT WILL GRANT MOTION
Motions to Quash IndicVnent and to
Discharge Defendant on Four
Felonies Are Overruled.
In the circuit court this morning
Judge Gest indicated that he would
grant a motion for a change of venue
in the trial of the cases against Wil
liam Nagel, under indictment for mur
der and also for minor felonies of the
nature of robberies. A week is given
the attorneys for the defendant to pre
pare for this, and it is probable that
the case will be taken to Henry county
for trial. The ground for the applica
tion is the wide publicity given to the
facts and issues involved in the case.
IndlcluientM Are (iiiail.
The court overruled the motion of H.
A. Weld and Adair Pleasants to quash
the indictments found at the last ses
sion of the grand jury, on the ground
that the burden is upon the defendant
to show that the presence of the sten
ographer in the grand jury room preju
diced the case or that he influenced the
proceedings. This, of course, was not
A motion was then filed to discbarge
the defendant as to all of the indict
ments on the allegation that they are
all a part of the same transaction and
are also involved in the indictment on
the charge of murder. This was also

Gang Proves Victorious Over Special
Police at Suburban Resort.
A gang of hoodlums had control of
affairs at Suburban Isle for a couple
of hours yesterday afternoon and came
off victorious in several scrans with
the special officers who attempted to I

made, though it is possible warrants

Davenport police were called upon, but
were powerless to make arrests on ac

CROWDS ARE GROWING.
Tempting Bargains Offered at M. & K.
Draw an Eager Army of Buyers
Extra Special Bargains Tomorrow.
The great crowds that continue to
011 the M. & K. is a direct indication
of the popularity of the Improvement
Sale which they are holding. The fact
that the patronage has increased reg
ularly bears out the statement that this
popularity is growing. The tempting
bargains offered create a great appetite
for more. People are constantly ask
ing: "How long will this sale last?"
"Will it last till my payday?" "How on
earth can you sell such fine things for
such small nrices? And M. & K. re
ply: "It will last until not a single
stitch of this great stock Is left. We
have made these bargains extra good
to move this stock out of the way in
the shortest possible time. When it is
gone the store will be remodeled, re
decorated and restocked. It , simply
means a new M. & K. a brighter, bet
ter store than ever."
This Is the object of this great mer
chandizing event and if the attendant
crowds are a fair criterion by which to
judge, one may feel fully assured of

known fact that a customer always
gets even more for his money at the

is no disappointment.there. The deter
mination to add to the interest of this
sale prompts the proprietors to throw
in additional bargains for each suc

Thomas Edwin Veitch returned last
evening from his old home at Tiskilwa.
He has been so busy of late that he
concluded a short vacation would do
him good. He put in most of it fishing
In the Illinois and Michigan canal, and
the result was that he found excess
charges against his baggage when he
attempted to remove it from the train
with the assistance of one or two por
ters. Incidentally he received the
quiet admonition that such stuff would
cause less trouble if consigned to the
express car hereafter. But Tom-
quick at repartee responded with
something about there not going to be
any hereafter of that kind.
The reason is that Tom so far forgot
the dignified position he now enjoys in
the world as to run barefooted all the
time he was in Tiskilwa. As a not
unnatural result the soles of his feet
are so blistered and bruised that he
goes about wearing felt slippers.N

W. V. Mosher, a roustabout on the

about a mile and a half above Fairport
last evening, and before the boats that
were lowered could reach him, he had
gone to the bottom and the body could
not be recovered. Mosher had been
drinking somewhat during the steam

port he took a position at the very edge
of the stage, and prepared for a nap.
He was ordered from that dangerous
place by the mate, and instead or ris
ing and walking back to the deck, he
rolled over and over down the stage.
When he reached the deck he stood to
his feet, and evidently having been
made dizzy from rolling, together with
the effect of the liquor, he reeled, and
