! Brehmer Quits Force. Detective Ed
i Brehmer, under temporary suspension
from the police force at the hands of
' Chief Atkinson and the' fire and police
board, on the charge of intoxication
yesterday handed his resignation to
Chief Atkinson, thus totally severing
!his connection with the police depart-
iment. Several days ago. Detective
Charles Boettcher, also under fire, be
ing charged with neglect of duty, ten
dered his resignation rather than un
dergo a hearing at the hands of the
commissioners. Brehmer. -was given
his hearing Thursday before the board
and after a brief consultation on the
part of the commissioners and the at
torneys in the case, the matter was
taken under advisement. It was an
nounced by a member of the board
that the action taken in regard to Mr.
Brehmer was that he was suspended
for a term of 15 days and that his
rank of detective was taken from him.
He was notified that he would be taken
into the force again as a patrolman
and that his efficiency, should such be
shown, would be considered in return
ing him to his former position on the
force . To thia Brehmer acceded, when
the matter was broached to him, but
apparently altered hi3 decision when
he turned over his keys to headquar
ters. Brehmer had been a member of
the police department for about five
years and proved to be a good officer.

Will Not Insist on Lowering Tracks.
Estimated cost of lowering tracks of
the Rock Island road to grade between
First and Sixth streets in this city is
$21,290. Engineers who have gone
over the ground estimate that this
change would necessitate the moving
of 19,000 yards of dirt. The city coua
cll ai'.-t in committee of the whole
Thursday evening to consider the pe
tition of west end property owners
that the railway companies be com
pelled to bring their tracks to grade.
E. II. Stafford, attorney of the Rock
Islanl road, appeared before the alder
men rnd presented the figures he.-e
given. The aldermen agreed that tha
company's contention that an order to
bring tracks to grade would be im
posing a hardship out of proportion to
the city's gain. The order to lowor
tracks will not be issued, at this time
at least, though the committee did not
take action that will prevent the is
suing cf such an order at some future
time if desired.
Tragedy Shock to Sister. Mrs. Van
derelO:it of 1536 Twenty-third avenue,
half sister of Alonzo Van Royen, the
man murdered in eastern Kansas sev
eral days ago by his brother-in-law,
James McMahon, received word that
there was not time for her to go to
Kansas and attend the funeral. Hence,
she did not make the trip. McMahon
killed not only Van Royen but also his
(MeMahon's) two sistvrs. Mrs. Van
Royen and Miss Rosa McMahon. He
had heard his mother say she would
turn over part of her estate to his rela
tives. He brooded on it till he becanit?
crazed and finally accomplished the
triple murder. He was not at first
suspected, but finally his guilt was
established and he confessed. News
of her half brother's dpath- in this ter
