' Wrech at Camanche. An accident
which might have had serious results
but for the prompt application of the
air brakes happened Wednesday at
about C o'clock a mile east of Cam
anche. Train No. 52, the local train
to St. Louis on the C. B. & Q, which
is due at Davenport at C5:5 in the
evening, broke the front truck on the
tender when just out of Camanche,
and the tender was derailed. The air
brakes were applied and no damage
was done, as none of the other cars
went off the track. A delay of sev
eral hours was caused. The other
evening trains were detoured and cauie
down the river on the Illinois side.
Batter Down Door. It was neces
sary for members of the police depart
ment to batter down the door of a
dwelling on Cherry street Wednesday
night to accomplish the arrest of the
participants in a drunken cabal. They
were Jack Miller, for years a charac
ter in the tenderloin district; his wife,
Nona Miller, and Edith Hartmann. In
police court the Millers were charged
with running a disorderly house, and
the Hartmann woman was booked as
a vagrant. Miller was fined $100 and
his wife $25. The Hartmann woman
was sentenced to serve 15 days in
jail. The Millers gave notice of an
appeal of their case to the district
Financial Problem Up. The new
financial problem that faces the city
was stated to the city council by May
or George W. Scott Wednesday even
ing, in a verbal message. Mayor Scott
said in substance: "Gentlemen of the

propriations for the current fiscal year,

based on conditions in the city at that
ime, and the estimated revenue, with
he expectation that a levy of 17 mills
would make possible the expenditure
of the amounts appropriated, without
leaving a deficit for the year. It is
iow apparent that the receipts of the
city from the mulct tax and the rev
enues of the police court will not be
as large as formerly. Recent action
makes it possible that there will be a
decline of about $15,000 in revenue
from the police court, which has been
going into the general fund; there is
indicated also a loss of mulct tax rev
enue of perhaps $25,000 or $30,000. The
legislature has also made it manda
tory on the board of supervisors to
levy a 1-mill tax on all property in the
Jity, for road purposes, one-half of the
proceeds from such tax to be expended
n the improvement of thoroughfares
leading into the city, and the other
half to be used inside the city limits,
to improve roads connecting with such
improvement. All this means much
to the city this year. It means that
there will not be enough money in the
general fund to meet the expenses for
which you appropriated. Something
therefore must be done to meet the
Dixon' Now to Incorporate. Dixon is
another Scott county, town that be
lieves in incorporation. At the special
election held Wednesday by the citi
zens of the territory proposed to be
incorporated the project carried with
but little opposition. The vote was 52
for and 10' against incorporation.
Plans for East Side. Business men
are discussing the new future of the
East Second and Front street neighbor
hoods which were reclaimed from im
morality by Mayor Scott's order last
week. The general impression seems
to be that improvement of the quarter
is brought nearer by the mayor's or
der, and that the time is not far dis
tant when the retail and jobbing inter
ests of the city shall have made the
district a busy place again.
The new "C. & N. W."

Open Sunday; Fined. Henry lluy-
vaert, proprietor of the saloon in the
German inn building, was arrested and
fined for 'violating' the Sunday closing
ordinance. ' He was charged with hav
ing .his place open last Sunday. The
arrest of Huyvaert grew out of the
coroner's inquest over the remains rf
Mrs. Minnie Matson. In giving his
testimony, Ernest Matson, husband of
the deceased, said that Sunday morn
ing following the - runaway accident,
that proved fatal to Mrs. Matson, he
visited Jack Wynn at Huyvaert's si
loon, where Wynn was on duty. Whon
Chief Bisant heard this evidence he
proceeded to have a warrant issued
for Huyvaert. The saloonkeeper appeared-in
police court yesterday af
ternoon and was fined $50 and costs.
Ferry Service Soon. "We will have
our ferry line between Moline and Bet-J
tendorf in operation within the next
two weeks," says E. H. Van Patten,
who is promoting the first project and
who last year secured franchises from
the supervisors of Scott and Rock In
land counties, as well as from the vil
lage board of Bettendorf and the ci'y
council of Moline, to launch the line.
"We have secured the steamer B. 1.,
which is now operating on the river
at Quincy. As soon as the boat conies
up river -we propose to institute
passenger runs. Work on the ferry
landings will not be taken up till the
boat arrives, consequently we will be
prepared to handle only passenger
traffic at the outset. The boat has a
carrying capacity of 12 teams and sev
eral hundred people." The boat will
land at Sixteenth street in this city
and it is probable that an hourly see
vice will be maintained.
