The funeral of County Surveyor M.
A. Gould was held yesterday after
noon at the home of his son. George
Gould in Moline. and according to the
wishes of -Mr. Gould as expressed in
his will, no religious services were

in tile civil war. Mr. Peek spoke of
Mr. Gould's honesty, his firmness in

Waller Karr sang two songs at the
home, "l.et Me Dream While Life Shall
Lingei," and "The Magical Isle of
Long Ago," two songs which complied
with the terms of the will in that they
are strictly secular, and at the same
time express sentiments making them
appropriate for such a service. In his
will Mr. Gould provided that Attorney

Were removed to the Davenport cre

the process of cremation. The process
was not completed yesterday, and the
ashes have r.or vet been scattered to
the winds, as was requested in the sur
veyor's will. They will, however, be
taken to the center of the Rock Island
bridge and thrown to the winds from

not be done until spring. The pall
bearers yesterday were S. R. Wright

In examining some old records ai
the court house Saturday, one of the
clerks found a copy of the oath which
Mr. Gould took Nov. 22. ISfir,. two days
before he first assumed the duties of
the office of county surveyor. The
oath is peculiar in that it refers to
dueling, the clause on this subject be
ing required at that time. This sec
tion of the oath is as follows:
"And I do also solemnly swear, that
I have not fought a duel, nor sent or
accepted a challenge to tight a duel,
the probable issue of which might have
been the death of either party, nor
been a second to either party, nor in
any manner aided or assisted in such
duel, nor been knowingly the bearer
of such challenge of acceptance, since
the adoption of the constitution and
that I will not be so engaged or con
cerned, directly or indirectly, in or
about any such duel, during my con tin
nance in office, so help me God."
Tenth avenue, this morning at 7:15.
The fire was caused from a defective
chimney. A portion of the roof of the
hous? was destroyed. Chemicals were
used to extinguish the blaze. The dam
age was nominal.
MAY TRY TO PACK
THIRD WARD MEETING
Rumored Descent Upon Republican
Confab Shows Danger of
Rumors are abroad of a contemplat
ed attempt to pack the meeting of re
publicans of the Third ward which has
been called at Turner hall for tomor
row evening in the interests of certain
candidates not. strictly within the. par
ty for office at the spring election. If
the re ports prove to have any founda
tion it will emphasize the wisdom of
the republican city committee in decid
ing to nominate at primaries instead
of caucuses. It will also serve as a
warning to the democratic city com
mittee to take like action, and "assure
a tree expression of the popular will.
Tiie meeting at Turner hall, it is an
nounced, is to further the movement
inaugurated in the third precinct of the
Third ward last week to head off cer
tain candidates that those who have
called the meeting consider undesirable.

A corps of physicians of the city to
day began a systematic inspection and
study of the scarlet fever epidemic
through the three school buildings oi
the Sixth and Seventh wards, the Eu
gene Field. Horace Mann and Long
fellow schools. The plan is to have
the physicians, two of whom have been
assigned to each of these buildings,
take such measures as they deem fit to
make a study of the epidemic, and to
determine the advisability of having
all school children examined by physi
cians at regular periods while attend
ing school, as a means of preventing p
spread of the contagion. In addition
to this investigation in the two con
trasting wards of the city, physicians
will examine children in other schools
who are believed by the authorities to
have been exposed to the disease
ot Among hildreu.
The health authorities, from the sta
tistics of the epidemic in Rock Island
at the present time, have conclude!
that the diseases are not being spread
through the medium of the public
schools, as the number of cases among
children of school age is more than 20
ner cent lower than is usual in such
enidemics The authorities are con
vinced from the statistics that scarlet
fever and diphtheria are not origi.ua-
