THAT FAKE FIGHT
No New Developments Report

CSE OF DOUBLE CROSS?
Alleged Sport on a Par with Disrep

Many rumors were afloat today re
garding the stops which may be taken
by Edward Goodman of Chicago, who
is in the city looking up the facts of
the alleged fake prize fight in this
vicinity some weeks ago by which he
claims he was fleeced out of $2,0H),

ments reported. H. A. Weld of Haas

through John Looney by Mr. Goodman,

1 KreiiiN Like Other.
The incident of which the Chicago
man complains seems on a par with
alleged sporting events which have
been pulled off from time to time in
past years on the outskirts of Koek
Island, Including footraces, prize
lights, dog fights and cock fights
while perhaps some of these fake ex
hibitions have not taken place in the
city, they have served in all instances
. to attract here a disreputable element
It is alleged that in the instance in
quest ion the double cross was Good
man's portion. The affair is under
stood to have taken place in some
"stalls" outside the city limits.

PROPOSED NEW BANK

Although it had been reported that
an effort would be made by the Can
non forces of the republicans to snatch
control of the meeting at the Turner
hall last evening, called by Judge C
J. Searle to form a Taft club, there
was nothing of the sort doing, and the
taffy spread was all for the corpulent
globe trotter. For all that was said
and done one would not have known
such a man as Cannon had ever
thought of running for the presiden
Go Through Stuntn.
The meeting ceremoniously launched
a Taft club and went so far as to name a
committee to wait on the congression
al committee and inform the member j
of that body just what they should do
and when to do it.
Searle Start It.
Judge Searle, having called the meet
ing, as a preliminary explained what
he thought should be done. He out
lined the two methods of selecting del
egates, the Taft plan by a primary
and the Cannon system, by appoint
ment by the committees. This latter
he declared to be a scheme to deprive
the voters of their "say in the selection
of a candidate for president. He call
ed the situation critical, dutifully
praised President Roosevelt, and went
through the rest of the prescribed
speech to the effect that a change in
policies would be detrimental and Taft
is the only man to prevent a chang
and reactionary elements.
Judge Searle said he believed that
the majority of republican voters are
with him on these points, and that
thusly he had called the meeting
Then he advised a committee to
named to go to Monmouth to tell the
congressional committee that Rock Is
land does not like this committee ma
nipulation, "so there, now."
Dr. I.udewlK In Chair,
When Judge Searle had finished his
speech, several nominations were made
for chairman, but Dr. W. H. Ludewig
it seemed, had been primed for the
job. so he was named. Then James
McNamara was chosen as secretary.
The preliminaries over, Judge Searle
plunged ahead, and moved that a Taft
club be formed. This nieemed to be
all right, and no objections were made,
so it was moved that a committee o
seven be named to draw up a constitu

Some Keep Quiet.
This controversy between Taft and
Cannon forces is placing some republi
can politicians in difficult and embar
rassing positions. Postmaster H. A.J.
McDonald, for instance, has not much
to say about it. The men to whom he
owes political debts because of his ap

and the two' Illinois senators, are on
opposite sides, and naturally Captain
McDonald is not pleased with the turn
taken toward a local fight on the question.
