The Island City boating club will
pull off its handicap race this eve
ning at the harbor, and practically
all the boats in the harbor will take
part, in the contest. A large number
of the boats ran over the course last
evening in order to get their official
rating for the course and there are
several more entries which will go
over the course early this evening
and join in .with the other contest
ants. The scheme is to allow each
boat, no more thau a. live per cent in
crease in speed over t he speed shown
in the trial runs and as the boats will
be f-ent out from the harbor with
handicaps which would bring them
in all together, it ought to prove an
interesting race. The judges are to
be John W. Larson. George Andrews
and II. W. Roff. The time keepers
will be W. II .(lest. Jr., and W. T.
II iH I'.nlrrnl.
The boats which have already run
over the course in preparation for
the race are the lona, Ray. W. J..
Thetis, Helen M., Myrtle, Leo, Limit,
N'awadaha, Alice, Richard U., Hlii.ck
Hawk and Chap. The Island City,
Holly, Mallard, Lucille. Pointer and
Mermaid, are expected to run over
the course before the race and get
handicaps which will allow" t hem to
enter into the contest. The first
prize for the affair is to be a gold
outing watch donated by L. S. Mc
Cabe & Co., and the second prize will
be a box of cigars which S. M. Arndt
gave. The third prize will be a pen
nant. After the race, the boats will spend
the remainder of the evening in tak
ing out parties for short rides on the
river. Those who patronize the re
freshment stand which the ladies will
conduct at the club house will be
given the rides free of charge.

Police Magistrate C. J. Smith and
several policemen nearly fainted yes
terday afternoon as the result of a
very close call which they had. The
affair was somewhat in the nature of
a catastrophe except that it didn't
happen, thanks to the thoroughness
and foresight of the judge. Officer
Dennis Rennctt had arrested a young I
fellow who hailed from down the river
somewhere. After being searched, ha
had been locked up to await the action
of the magistrate. Now Officer Bennett ,
has always prided himself on the thor
ough manner in which he searches a
risoner and when he told the judj;e
that the fellow did not have a cent
and that it woidd do no gond o fine
him, the judge decided at once tha!
the proper thing to do was to order
the prisoner out of town. He was ac
cordingly brought before the niagls
trate who gave him the usual run f
questions concerning his name, address
and reason for being in this city. He
replied to the latter question by stat
ing that he had come here to buy him
self some clothes. The judge cast a
look of disapproval on hnu nnd asked
how he expected to nuy clothes with
out, having any money, and he was
somewhat staggered when the fellow
icplicd that he was not entirely broke.
The judge's determination to send the
man out of the city was shattered by
this remark despite Officer Bennett's
statement that the prisoner was broke.
Deciding to take no chances, the judge
fined the prisoner $1 and costs and m
terest in the proceding ran high as the
officers who were present waited to see
whether Bennett's search had been "n
vain or whether the fellow was put
ling up a bluff. Several of them nearly
had convulsions in laughing at Bennett
and the judge when the fellow dug
Into his clothes and from a hidden
pocket which the officer had over
looked in his search, produced a roll
of bills and handed the judge a five
spot from which to take the fine and
the costs of the case. When the in
cident was over and the fellow gone.
Magistrate Smith warned Bennett in a
solemn manner to be more careful in
the future, that no "live ones" were
allowed to escapo the penalty of their
Another funny thing occurred a few
minutes afterwards. A young fellow
who had been ordered to get out of
kown in a hutry, asked the judge if he
might be allowed to wash himself up
at the station and the judge replied
that he had no objections personally.
The young fellow then asked If h?
could borrow a clothes brush aud the
judge broke in and said; "Say, young
fellow, do you think we are running
a first class hotel here? Never mind
about brushing up, just dust out of
here at once." '
Anton Pearson, whose home was at
1311 Fifth avenue, Moline, was killed,
and Albert Anderson was seriously in
jured in an elevator accident at the
Moline city hospital, where they were
employed in the construction of a new
addition to the building. The men
were on the elevator, at the third floor,
and the load included two big slabs
of stone. The machine was operated
by horse power. Suddenly some part
of the mechanism gave way, and the
elevator crashed to the ground with
its two passengers.

Pearson fell in such a way that the'
ribs on the right side were separated,
and his neck was injured. The acci
dent occurred at 2:30, and the Injured
man died at 3:10. He was quickly
taken into the hospital and given sur
gical attention, but his injuries were
such that recovery was impossible.
Anderson, the other victim f the
accident, is in a very serious condi
tion, but his injuries are not likely to
result fatally, it is belieed.
