i The iiassinf of a larce number of
bogus dollars, hi the tri-cities in the
course of the.. last .two weeks, has led
the 'local police department and sev
eral, government secret service men
to believe ' that one or mare clever
counterfeiters are making. their head
quarters in this city or near here, and
getting rid of the queer at a rapid
i rate. About a week ago, a local mer
chant reported to the police that ho
had taken in several apparently silver
- dollars, which upon close examination
proved counterfeit, and the govern
ment officials at Washington were put
la possession of the facts at once.
The result Is that two secret service
"-men have made their appearance here
and they have been at work on th
case lor several days, but as yet tiioy
; bav failed to locate the makers of the

rThe counterfeiters are evidently
confining themselves to the manufac
ture . of dollars and they have suc
ceeded in getting an imitation that
rllL pass, nearly everywhere. .The
dollar has every '.appearance , of. beiug
the real silver article, and it rinses
true, but is short in weight a little.
The counterfeiters have learned to
make a composition containing glass,
which looks exactly like silver and
gives the same kind of a rin;r when
struck on metal or marble. It has
but one drawback and that is thit
If the dollar Is struck hard on tin
margle, it breaks into small pieces.

the counterleiters are putting out
another dollar also, which is not ?

tion and very few of them have bee:
parsed. The secret service men win

Bankers when seen this morning de

normal amount of spurious money if
being circulated here. One bankej
stated that no: over a half dozen bal
dollars had come into the bank'
hands in several weeks, and that this
number was not more than usual
These, he said, came in. not from tin
merchants, but from truck gardeners
and dairymen as a rule, and evidently
had been in general circulation.

William French,, a painter in the
employ of the Tri-City Railway com-

morning .as the result of an acci

avenue car barns. Mr. French, whe
resides at 520 Rock Island street,
Davenport; was . entering the paint
department at the barns preparatory
to going to work. Leading into the
department is a large pair of double
doors and these swung shut just as
he entered. He jumped to escape
being pinioned between the heavy
doors and his jump caried him into
the pit' which is under the tracks
leading into the paint room. The fall
was only a matter of a few feet, but
it came so unexpectedly that he was
