Saloon Keepers Arrested. Informa
tion has been filed by Attorney H. B.
Betty, representing . the Civic federa
tion, against eight saloon keepers of
Davenport, charging them with viola
ting injunctions issued against them,
and bench warrants for their arrest
were issued by Judge Bollinger. All
the defendants were cited to appear in
court Tuesday morning. They are as
follows: C. L. (Perl) Calvin, August
(Pink) Dillig, Herman Lemni, Tom
Galvin, Henry Lorenzen, Joe Traeger,
Frank Martens, and Robert McMann
The injunctions issued against the de
fendants required them to fully com
ply with every feature of the mulct
law, and this it is represented by the
prosecution they have not been dou)g.
A violation of the injunctions consti
tutes contempt of court, the penalty
upon conviction for which is a fine of
not less than $200 or more than $1,000
or imprisonment for not less than 30
days or more than six months. The in
formant in each case is William Schoe-
nig. At first no one about the court
house could identity 'Schoenig. Police
Chief Vanatta of Muscatine happened
to drop in the sheriff's office on busi
ness, and when hearing of the bench
warrants and the fact that the infor
mation had been sworn to by William
Schoenig, he at once recognized Schoe
nig as the man who gathered the" in
formation against the Muscatine sa
loon keepers and secured the search
warrants against them. "He is declared
to be a professional in this line, hav
ing worked at other places than Mus-
catine and Davenport. It is known that
Schoenig was in Davenport for three
days, including July 4 and the follow
ing Sunday, on which dates he "spot
ted" the saloon keepers here. '
Said He Needed Money. "Times are
hard and I needed the money," declar
ed George Nickells to Justice Oelkers
in assigning an excuse why he robbed
John Moravek. Nickells was arrested
by Police Officer Behm, charged with
larceny from the person. Sunday he
found Moravek lying asleep on the
sidewalk ,at Front and Gaines streets,
presumably in a drunken condition.
He took out his knife, ripped over
Moravek's pockets and secured $3
therefrom. Nickells Is a man past 50
years of age. He recently served 30
days In jail for the larceny of a sack
of flour from the Davenport Flour &
Feed company. At his hearing he was
bound over to the grand jury.
Want Cannon for Parks. The board
of directors of the Davenport Commer
cial club held a meeting yesterday af
ternoon. In spite of the hot weather,
a quorum w.as secured and business
transacted. Tne only matter of gen
eral importance was the decision of
the board to try to secure cannon for
the public parks of the city. Secretary
Steele was directed to take the matter
up with the war department to see if
at least one cannon for each park
could not be secured.

Decline of Billingsgate.
Billingsgate, whose decline in rheto
ric has already been noted. Has de
clined also hi other ways since Queen
Elizabeth appointed it "an open place
for the landing and bringing in of any
fish, corn, salt stores, victuals and
fruit (grocery wares excepted)." Stow
gives the list more fully, as including
"fish, both fresh and salt, shell fishes,
salt, oranges, onions and other fruits
and roots, wheat and rye. and grain of
divers sorts for the service of the city
and the realm adjoining" which sug
gests the contents of a village general
shop. In William III.'s reign Billings
gate was limited to- a "free and open
market for all sorts of fish." and it
was after this that its reputation for
language grew up. alluded to by Pope:
