Coal Thieves Busy. Coal thieves
have been especially busy during the
past few weeks, and unusual boldness
has been displayed, according to com
plaints of the Tri-City Fuel company,
and other coal companies hauling coal
from cars in the railroad yards. Gen
eral Manager O. B. Grant of the D., It.
I. & X. W., has complained to the po

Offered $2,000; Gets Nothing. The
trial of the case of Mrs. Emily Stretch
er vs. the Davenport Brick & Tile
compauy, being a $10,000 damage suit
for the death of the plaintiff's hus
band, was ended abruptly in the dis
trict court yesterday, when the motion
of the attorneys for the defendant com
pany to take the case from the jury
and instruct them to return a verdict
for them, was sustained by Judge Bol
linger. Tiie jury thereupon returned
the following verdict: "As directed by
the court, we.' the jury, find for the de
fendant." The case "was taken from
the jury and a verdict ordered for the
defendant company on the ground that
Streicher, the dead man, either had a
knowledge, or should have had such
knowledge, that there was a crack in
the clay bank where he was working,
and that it was dangerous, as all the
workmen had witnessed the blast an
hour before, and at that time saw that
the clay refused to fall. It was then
thai: the foreman took a crowbar and
attempted to pull down the dirt, but
was unable to do so, and then proceed
ed with a pick to undermine it. In
the meantime Streicher is alleged to
have gone under the crevice caused by
the blast and begun shoveling the dirt.
An interesting feature in connection
wiih the. case is that some time before
it was brought to trial the Davenport
Brick & Tile company offered to settle
with Mrs. Streicher for $2,000, but the
offer was refused.
Killed Squirrels to Save Stock.
Eldred II. Smith, the grocer at Fif
teenth and Brady streets, considers
himself as good a friend of the squir
rels as are t lie neighbors who have
been horrified at his attempting to
thin out the squirrel colony that has
been raiding his store display for the
past several months. People who fre
quently pass Mr. Smith's store, on the
sirett cars or otherwise, have noticed
the squirrels perched on the baskets
of nuts displayed in front of the store.
fishing through the wire
their dinners. "I stood their raids as
long as I could," said Mr. Smith. "I
even went to the expense of getting
extra fine screens for my baskets of
nuts, but they got through them any-
of police, and all said that' if the squir
rels were doing damage, I had permis
sion to shoot them. Now, I am rer.dy
to meet half way the neighbors who
call these squirrels their pets. In fact,
I have more than once proposed to
them, that if they would put out a
basket of nuts in each of their yards,
and protect their pets instead of let
ting them starve, I would do my share,
too, and continue to feed them as I
have been. But if I must' continue to
feed the pets of the whole neighbor
hood, I claim the right to keep their
number within reasonable limits, and
protect my store displays against de
struction." Obituary Record. Peter M. Gilloley
received a telegram yesterday an
nouncing the death in Chicago of his
brother, James M. Gilloley. Deceased
had been suffering from diabetes for
some time, so that the news was not
entirely unexpected. Mr. Gilloley was
born in Davenport in 1S52, was reared
and schooled here, and learned the
trade of a bookbinder with Luce &
Griggs . He was married to Minnie
Dermody of Davenport in 18S7, and
she survives him, with three, children.

Bartonville, a suburb of Teoria, is
having its troubies wtih the Central
Union telephone monopoly, and the
villagers have begun cutting oles and
lines as a means of securing rates as
low as those prevailing at Peoria and
in neighboring villages. The residence
rate fixed arbitrarily by the company
is $3G a year, and $G0 a year for bus
iness service. Outside of a radius of
three miles an additional $24 a year is
charged for each mile. The trustees
made a demand for a reduction, and
no heed was paid to it. Now the ques

and Bartonville will be forced to sus

in doubt. '

CAMP FOR WOLF HUNTERS.
Permanent One Will Be Made In Al
gonquin Park, Canada.
The wolf hunters who recently re
turned to Montreal from the wilds
about Kippawa, Que., caught two poi
soned wolves and one Canadian' lynx,
says a Montreal dispatch to the New
York Sun. The hunters say that weath
er conditions were against them, the
snow not being sufficiently deep or the
weather cold enough. However, the
members had a good outing.
A result of the excursion will be the
establishment of a permanent camp in
Algonquin park for the special purpose
of wolf hunting during the cold period.
This camp, L. O. Armstrong says, will
be established next autumn and oper
ated throughout the winter.

Colonel Jim Lowrey of. the Honey
Grovei(Tex.) Signal, a newspaper man
of the old school, has published a dls
sertation ou buttermilk which his
friends regard as a gem of humor,
says a Dallas (Tex.) dispatch to the
New York Press. A copy of the Sig

Jim's production is as foilows:
"The state prohibition election Is
