On the 18th of August, 1870, he was ,
oined in marriage to Miss Julia A.
Chamberlain, now deceased, who was
to him during the years of their mar
ried life, a faithful, loving wife and
helpmate. Her death occurred Febru-;
ary 25, 1908. In 1870 Mr. Entriken
commenced the study of law. He stud
ied in the office of the Hon. George L J
Wait and also of Major C. E. Mode- .
well In Geneseo. In April,. 1871, he
removed to Moline and continued h!s
legal studies with the Hon. J. T.

JEROMEAND STIMSON AT OUTS
Precedence in Suit Over Canal Libel
Alleged to Be the Cause,
New York,' Feb. 6. Some " friction
has arisen between District Attorney
Jerome and United States District At
torney Stimson in the Panama libel
qase, and as matters stand it looks as
if Mr. "Jerome would not take' up the
case. -: '
'After "Mr. Stimson answered Mr. Jer
ome's first letter, promising Mr. Jer
ome the government would cooperate
with him, Jerome , addressed , another
letter to Mr. Stimson, and today, the
latter sent a reply to it. Neither Mr.
Jerome nor Mr. Stimson would make
public this latest correspondence, but
it is understood that Jerome asked
Stimson to give him the precedence in
the case, or, in otner words, to have
the federal proceedings held up until
Jerome went ahead and attempted to
get an indictment from the grand jury
of the' county. , To this Stimson, it is
said, failed to make any direct ans
wer, but inasmuch as the federal grand
jury takes up the case again on Mon
day, according to an announcement
made yesterday, it would appear that
Jerome is not to have his way.
