Habeas Corpus in Circuit
RACE TROUBLE IS FEARED
Sheriff Has Reason to Think Riots
Would Follow if Negro Succeeds
Ruling is Withheld.
An enort was made in trie circuit
court this morning to secure the i
iease pi mittens Tarver. the 17-year-:
old, Moline negro who is held on a
charge of assaulting a tejephone ope.--"ator
with intent to commit "rape. C. ll
Dietz appeared in co.urt and presented
a petition for a writ of habeas corpus,
seeking either to secure the negro's
lelease, or to secure a reduction cf
the. bail so that he may furnish bonJ
and secure his freedom.' He i3 now
held under $5,000 bail. Judge Ramsay
refused to grant the defendant his
freedom and dilared that he will not
be disposed to reduce, the bail to any
great extent. He stated that in his
opinion the bail where such a heniou-s
crime is charged should bo ample to
Insure-the presence of the defendant.
The matter of bail is not to be decided
May Mean Have Trouble.
While it did not appear before th;
court, the county authorities have iH
formation that leads the sheriff and
the police to fear serious race rio's
should the negro secure his release.
In fact it i:i said that the authorities
have information that if Tarver is re
leased there will be an organized ef
fort made in Moline to burn out the
negro districts of the city. In fact th'
incidents which led to the negro's ar
rest caused much excitement in Mo
line, and the police suppressed news of
the arrest until the negro was safely
confined in the county jail, fearing :iu
outbreak of race prejudice should it
become known that Tarver was und?i
arrest in Moline.
The sheriff regards the situation as
a serious one, and anticipates serious
trouble if Tarver does secure bail.
However, in view of Judge Ramsay's
tatement that he does not propose to;
reatly reduce the bail, it is likely
bat Tarver will remain in the coun'y
Jail until after the grand jury Ins
passed on his case, at least. His at
torney desires the court to fix the bail
at about $800 instead of $5,000.

Success' of the Regis Corsets
THE reason for the wonderful suc
cess of the Regis is the fact that at
'once it creates for the figure those perfect
lines which the present style of gown require.
All of the new Regis above $2.50 are boned
with the genuine walohn boning, making them
unbreakable, non-rusting and non-warping.
There are Regis models for all figures the
tall, the medium, and the full figure with the
large hips and legs, which require scientific
corseting to reduce them to proportions con
forming to the narrow, tube-shaped gowns now
so much- in vogue.
These Regis corsets possess features which
prevent them from wrinkling, as other long-hip
corsets do. We show eight new Regis models
which cannot be found at other stores. If we
cannot fit you in a Regis corset we should like
to know the reason why.
Select your corset first, as the new corset is
absolutely necessary for any of the newest gowns.
We guarantee perfect satisfaction with every
fitting by our expeit corsctiere. Regis corsets
$1.00 to $10.00. v "
