THE ARGUS, SATURDAY. AUGUST 17, 1907
NEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS
Get Pair of Holdups. Two rlanger
ous holdup men are now safeiy lodged
behind the bars at the puliee- station,
thanks to the vigilance and keen scent
of Chief Tom Atkinson, aided by the
Moline police, who made iiic ea)ture.
The two men are JacK Williams of
Des Moines and Homer Hill of Bur
lington. Wednesday afternoon the two
fellows met a stranger by the name of
John Linden of Hock ford, III., on the
ferry crossing from Hock Island to
Davenport. Williams and Hill manag
ed to cultivate Linden s acquaintance
on the boat, and on their arrival in
Davenport, proposed they all three
should take a buggy rule over the city.
This was agreed to by Linden, who
proved to tie the victim of a well laid
plot. A livery was secured from Fr y's
barn, and all three drove west of the
city. On . the road back of Fairmount
cemetery. i,milcii was slugeel overt lie
head with a blackjack, thrown from
the buggy, and robbed of his gold watch
and S7 in money, and lelt unconscious
on the deserted roadside, while the
lubbers returned to town in the buggy.
The matter was reported to the polict
but the onlv clue they could secure of
the robbers was a blood v shirt left in
the buggy, which had been changed
for a clean one by one of the robbers
On this shirt was a laundry mark and
the initials ".I. W." Chief Atkinson
took up this clue and learned the ini
tials stood for .lack Wright. In this
manner the police were enabled to
learn that Wright had gmte to Moline,
and the police of that city w( re noti
fied. They arrested Wright and also
his confederate Hill. Detective George
Shanley and Deputy Marshal Matt
Lamb went to the latter city and re
turned with the prisoners to Daven

the Methodist churches. Miss Jordan

past two years, having previously been

Old Lumber Company Dissolves.
It is like writing a collective obituary
notice of the prominent lumbermen of
'l"t years ago, to write the history of a
Davenport company which has voted to
terminate its existence. With the pass
ing of the Lindsay Land & Lumber
company will pass tin; pioneer of all
the lumber companies which followed
those whose holdings were exclusively
of northern slumpage a departure
which litis since led to investments
from the Mississippi vailey in timber
tracts toward every point of the com
pass. Present members of the com
pany met in the olliee of the Lindsay
Phelps company and voted to distribute;
the remaining assets of the company
and terminate its existence. It was 2"
years ago this summer that the Lind
say Land & Lumber company was
finned. J. 13. Lindsay was its father
and has always been its president, and
with Frederick Weyerhaeuser, the
"lumber king," bears the distinction of
being the sole survivor of the original
board of directors. The late J. B.
Phelps was its secretary and treas
urer until his death, when he was suc
ceeded by Fred Wyman.
Expected Home Tomorrow. Mr. and
Mrs. Arno Peterson and Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Petersen are expected home in
their auto, the Meteor, which made so
excellent a showing in the Glidden
tour, some time tomorrow. They have
been enjoying an extensive tour through
the eastern states since the finish of
the big contest.
Children Left on Doorstep. A rather
peculiar case came to the attention of
Matron Hill yesterday. She was call
ed to the door of the house of deten
tion by a ring at the bell. When she
answered it. she found outside tin
door two little girls, S and JO. years
old. respectively. They were bare
footed and clad in badly torn dresses.
One of the children handed the police
matron a note, which proved to be
from their parents, asking the matron
to lind a good place for the children
litis method ot child abandonment was
:i new one'ein the matron, and she call
ed in County Attorney Ilamann. Ho
had the parents called to the house of
detention, and there explained to them
their duty as parents. After this they
agreed to take the children home and
were allowed to do so.
Break in Main Causes Trouble. Two
million gallons e-f water gone to wash
two automobiles broken down, four bad
hours lor waterworks men, street car
si rvice somewhat interfered with in
the niointng, and a job ed pine repair
for as many men as can work at it
are among the results ot a break in a
HI inch main Thursday night. To
gre-at extent 'the waste and trouble
were due to the fact that the break
happened to occur at just the location
that it did on Kast Kiver street near
the old Hen wick. Shaw & Crossett saw
dust dump. The result was that whil
a lug tan in the pressure at the pump
tug stat mn snowed that the break oc
curred about midnight, the water at
lirst found an outlet through the sa.v
dust at seme distance freim the street
ami it was not until 4, o'clock, after
the street itself had cave-el in. that lie
leak was locate el. In the meantime
two automobile's had been broken down
in the rush over the city in the storm
to find i he' leak. ami two horses ami
wagons had been useel nearly as vig
orously. Assistaift Superinte'iident
Thomas Healcy of the company was
