BAR TAKES IT UP
Discusses Court's Removal and
Possibility of Reappointment,
of H. D. Blakemore
Committee Is Named to Wait on the
Judges Various Resolutions
Offered and Tabled.
judges, relative to the matter of ap
pointing a, reporter?
At a meeting of the Rock Island
County Bar association called for the
purpose this afternoon, the attorneys
took up the matter of the summary
removal of II. D. Blakemore as court
reporter by Judge W. II. Gest, with a
view on the part of some of the mem
bers to assisting Mr. Blakemore to
secure a new appointment.
It appears that Mr. Blakemore had
been employed by Judge Gest as a
temporary appointment -ntil such
time as a reporler shall be named for
a specific court by two judges of the
circuit, no appointments having been
made for this court. Judge Gest en
tered the temporary order Sept. 19,
Sit tuition Dint'iiNxrtt.
S. It. Kon worthy brought up the
matter of Mr. Blakemore, and offered
a resolution endorsing Mr. Blake
more's work as court reporter for over
20 years, and irging his appointment
as court reporter. The resolution also
provided the appointment of a com
mittee of fve from the bar associa
tion to wait on the judges to secure
Mr. Blakemore's appointment.
The situation was then thoroughly
discussed for over an hour, and vari-
was other resolutions onereu as
amendments and substitutes.
It was suggested that Judge Gest
should be applied to for an explana
tion of his action dismissing the re
porter, but this was not generally fa
vored, it being stated that the judge
had declined to give any reason to
Mr. Blakemore himself.
V. J. Kutrikiii'M Yii'tv.
V. .1. Entrikin of Moline expressed
himself as being .icsitive that the
judges would never reappoint Mr.
Blakemore. He went on to say that
Mr. Blakemore is a good reporter, but
that when that is said, everything ios
sible is said. He stated that Mr.
Blakemore has been a7 trouble maker,
and has' been a thorn in the fiesh as
far as the judges have been concerned.
He held that to rerpiest Mr. Blake
more's reappointemeiit would be use
less, and that it would be detrimental
also to Mr. Blakemore's interests.
Hon. "William McEniry, W. Tt. Moore,
Ceorge Wood, William A. Meese, B. D.
Connelly, J. 1j. Haas. Andrew Olson
H. A .Weld and others spoke, express
ing varying opinions.
Mr. Haas stated that in his opinion
it would be an affront to ask the
court for reasons when he had already
declined to give any,- and that the bar
should be cautious and not give of
fen He to the court.
The general opinion prevailed that
the bar should go no further than to
endorse Mr. Blakemore's work, and to
ascertain whether Mr. Blakemore's ap
plication for the position would be con
sidered by tho judges.
To ninr- fomiuittt-r.
Finally all resolutions were laid on
the table, and after C. B. Marshall, M.
J, McEniry and others had been heard
further, a motion was made and car
ried to tho effect that President Soarle
of the association name a committee of
five members to wait on the three

WING DAMS BACK
THE WATER UP HERE
Comparison of Quantity in River With
Other Years Lost by Recent
Captain Walter A. Blair savs the
river is lower tnau lor many years,
though it still continues some two feet
above the low water mark. The low
water maik, the captain says, is mis
leading, for the building of a number
of wing dams below the city last sea
son has had the effect of backing the
water up at this point so that it is now
impossible to make any accurate com
parison with stages of the river in the
past. . Captain Blair draws his conclu
sions from the condition of the stream
generally, not with reference to this
particular point. With the wing dams
in there is little likelihood of the pres
ent'low water mark ever being reached
again. ' -

The reason rr desiring early action
from the league's standpoint is to g3t,

nual meeting of the league in Chicago
Jan. 14. So long as the injunction re
mains in force the hands of the base
ball authorities are tied and they can
do nothing. If it is dissolved,- as the
attorney for Mr. Holland will contend
should be done, the question can be
raised at the coming meeting and such
action as baseball rules permit of may

Mrs. Bleakley, the supposed mother
in possession m Kansas, witn tne
original case in the Illinois courts re
manded for Tetrial by the appellate
court. Had the federal court accept
ed jurisdiction it had been asserted
the case would have been turned over
to the Illinois courts, in which Mr,
and Mrs. James Barclay, formerly of
Moline, would have had the advantage
As the matter stands now their only
recourse is some sort of appeal, and
this they will undoubtedly take under
the contention, which they have held
to throughout, that the adoption papers
by which they secured the child .at' the
St. . Louis world's fair and by w hicb.
the supposed mother relinquished her
claims to the littleusflty "are legal.
Judge Pollrvk tried to get the attor
neys in tne case to enter into a stipu
lation lo take the case out of the fed
eral courts and return it to the Illi
nois courts, thus relieving his court of
the necessity of deciding its jurisdic
tion.: The attorneys for Mrs. Barclay
agreed to this, but Eugene Ware, rep
resenting Mrs. Bleakley, declined to
enter into the agreement. The court
then stated that an offer to enter into
such stipulation could be made a part
of the record of either 6ide. Tho at
torneys for Mrs. Barclay announced
that they would take advantage of
this. The attorneys for Mrs. Bleakley
will no doubt reject the offer.
The case was argued at length by
tne attorneys. the arguments were
to . have been heard at Kansas City,
Kan., but at the last, minute the court
decided to hear the case in chambers
at Topeka. Senator Fitzpatrick and
W. P. Hackney, attorneys for the Bar
clays, upheld the legality of the St,

Norton and W; R. Brownell, attorneys
for Mrs. Bleakley, attacked the legal
ity of the papers.

Mrs. Barclay's attorneys held that
the supreme court of the state of Kan
sas had in the past recognized the
validity of adoption papers legally
drawn in other states. Mr. Ware con
tended that, as the Bleakleys were
legal residents of Kansas at the time
of the birth and adoption of the baby,
the papers should have been drawn in
Kansas under the laws of that state.
