THE ARGUS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1909.
IS HELD At CLUB
Members Enjoy Dinner and
Program of Seasonable
SEVENTY ARE AT BOARD
'Apple Diving, Voting Contest and
j' Bowling, Pool and Billiard
' ' Matches.
. Seventy members and invited guest
.cnjoye-l Hallowe'en diversions at tha
vRock Island Club last evening, a clever
:':progra:n having bean arranged by the
. 'entertainment committee as an intro
ductory of the social season there, and
'as a forerunner of the even better
'.'things that are to be provided for the
enjoyment of the membership during
i.'the winter months.
; The deft hand of J. R. Tucki3, the
deccr-ilor, was seen in the embelllsh
,!ments cf the dining room, which had
'been transformed to make the guests
!feel that they were participating in a
real pumpkin and jack-'o-lantern so
cial. Pumpkin vines overhung the
Jtnbles, while the latter were regaled
jwith the yellow pates from the field,
.marked to give the human expression.
J This icheme was carried out in tha
match holders and the buttoniercs,
'one of the latter pinned to each nap
'kin. The electric illuminators had
fbeen doused during tha dinner hour,
a dim and cozy light being diffused
iby red end green candles protruding
'from the pumpkin heads, one of the
latter iedecking each table. For the
"dinner the committee had provided
'chicken, and other good things.
Ballot Ilox Stuffed.
. The set program, which was inter
spersed throughout the evening with
;Cne orchestral music, began with a
contest for the selection of the most
popular member of the club. Each
'guest was entitled to one vote. The
membcis of the entertainment cornmil
'tee, GU3 Tegeler, Warren H. Keck and
jFerd Levy, served as tellers, and there
are murmurings of crookedness that
".may yet result In a court martial by
the club court. Captain W. A. Rose'.i-
field, who is pre&Ident of the club,
won in a walk. There was Tut one
ballot. However, when some of the
candidates learned the prize that had
been put up for tho winner the pique
they harbored over the stuffing of the
ballot box they were considerably
'. AH A gTfe to Finest.
- Capfain Rosenfield, for his victory,
v.as permitted to pay for the cigars
for the crowd. He accepted the honor
conferred, as well as , the penalty,
with his accustomed graciousness, and
then turning to a serious vein, he told
of the interest he had for the upbuild
ing of the club. He had set out .
boost but he had to have tho help of
the membership. He was assured a ?
would have it. If the members did
their i art he said he would stand for
the cigars at any time that the bei
was hung on him, as It had just been.
Robert Rexdale recited two poems and
Colonel F. E. Hobbs, commandant -tt
Rock Island arsenal, gave a brief talk.
Diving for Apple.
A seriea of games followed the din
ner, which was served at 7 o'clock.
The first was diving for appie3. Sev
eral young colored boys were em
ployed for this stunt. They were sta
tioned about a small tub of water, in
which the apples were floated. There
were three heats, on each of which the
members were permitted to make
wager3, each boy having a number.
This contest lasted half an hour and
was highly amusing.
In 11: ? bowl ins contest the honor:?
went to O. B. Hampton. J. R. Tuckl
was the charrpion at pool, and J. R.

How to accomplish the greatest pos
sible good for the greatest possible
number ia a problem that concerns
library trustees and librarians, as well
as other classes of public officials.
The point has been made by users of
the Rock Island public'' library that
the present arrangement doe3 not
meet local conditions as well as it is
possible to meet them and some
chacges of an important nature are
likely to receive consideration at the
hands of the board of trustees at an
Roek Island has one of the most
complete libraries in one of the most
substantial and best appointed build
ings f any city of its size In the coun
try. There are 21,000 volumes, com
pletely and conveniently classified, in
charge of a most competent corps of
librarians, occupying a building which
has cost, all told, $103,000. As is gen
erally known, the erection of the
building eight year3 ago was made
possible through the generosity of
Fredeiick Weyerhaeuser of St. Paul,
formerly of this city. Mr. Weyer
haeuser loaned the library board $50,
000, which, with an outright donation
of ov-ir $20,OC0, gifts amounting to
about ??,00O, and about $30,000 col
lected on the special library tax be
fore the work was done, made up the
total amount expended in buying the
site and erecting and equipping the
building. Of the $50,000 borrowed
the people by special tax have now
repaid all, the lat $10,000 coming out
of the revenues of last year when the
last special tax was collected. From
now on the library will be maintained
by the regular tax.
Has Been Hound by Keonomy
While the debt was being lifted the
library board has felt constrained to
avoid vny considerable changes or im
provements. Now, however, it may
bo possible to take some step3 to bet
ter meet the needs of the public.
Mies Gale.- the librarian, has from
time to time called attention to the
benefits that would be experienced
the cettiest exhibitions for amateurj
ever witnessed at the club. Mr. Trim
ble, for his prize, was presented four
tecond hand golf balls. Mr. Hampton
and Mrs. Tuckis each received a
Ilcnr I.nnder's Rival,
There was an hour's eocItI session
follow'ng the games. Dr. J. R. Hollow
bush, because of the name he mado
for himself at the meeting of the N
t'cral nail way Surgeons' association
in Chicago last week, was unanimously
prevailed upon to officiate as toast
master, and that he did full justice to
the position goe3 without saying. A
number were called upon for im
promptu stunts. Chief among these
was the singing of the golf profes
sional and Scotch bard, Sandy Baxter,
who has been instructor at the Rock
Island Arsenal club course the past
two vt-.rs. Srmdy gave eome of his
best scngs, and it was with difficulty
that the party let him quit. Ho has a
beautiful tenor voice, and his rendi
tion of Scotch ballads is especially ef
fective. In singing the songs of his
fathorlr.r.d, Harry Lauder has nothing
on him Baxter was assisted by a
cuartec of near-sivigors, members of

card index system, which though
usually complete, is not satisfactory
in many instances. Those who go to
the library for a given vclame, cf
course, are not discommoded, but
those who go with only a general idea
of wh they want find it hard to make
a suitable selection under the exist
ing arrangement. If this class were
allowed to personally examine . the
books it would simplify matters both
for them and for the librarians. It
might be added that this plan is fol
lowed in Davenport and Moline, the
Davenport library especially having a
patronage that is phenomenal for a
city of the size.
Severrl Reasons Urged
The movement for a separate room
for the children is urged on three
grounls. One is that the present
space used by the children is needed
to give more room for the works of

for other patrons that corld be avoid
ed if they wefe given a room by them
selves. Then, too, the children are
visiting the library in greater num
bers each year and they at times seri
ously crowd the small space set apart
for them. It is proposed to fit up a
room on the second floor for the young
people, providing small tables and chairs,
and keeping stacks there with the
children's works in them. This de
partment would, of course, not be open
during school hours and would, when
open, plways be in charge of one of
the assistant librarians.
The matter of branch libraries in
the pubiic schools is one that can not
be taken up all at .once, it i.j the
idea to begin with a couple of the out

rooms from the third grade up a few
of such books as experience shoe's
the children in each grade most re
quire. These would be placed unler
the caie of the teachers and would
be re-.urned to the main' library during

Should be Proud of Library
The Rock Island public library is
an institution of which tho citizens
may well feel proud. It is favored by
being under the management of Miss
Ellen Gale, the librarian, whose life
has been devoted to the study of
literature and the best methods for
the conduct of libraries. Miss Gale ia
assisted by Miss Cleland and Miss
Schocker, both excellent librarians
who perform their duties in a most
satisfactory manner. Given such
ideal facilities and such an ideal per
sonnel the inauguration of changes
deemed desirable for the Improvement
of the service should be a compara
tively simple matter.

Gone to Bad, Say State's
GIVES ADDRESS IN WiOLUih
Prosecutor Sees No Difference He
t'.veen a Public and a Private
John W. Wayman, state's attorney
of Cook county, spoke to an audienca
of 300 professional men and manufac
turers at the Congregational church,
Moline, last night. "Illinois has not
yet quite gone to the bad," he said.
"Chicago does not belong to Illinois,
or Illinois to Chicago. The enforce
ment of the law in Chicago means an
example to every city in the state. A
corrupt government in Cock county
means peril to every city in the state.
"There are crimes of murder, high
way robbery and the like, but I think
the two greatest crimes committed on
American soil are those of escaping
jury duty and of dodging taxes.
"Men if called to serve on juries will
lie in order to escape doing their duty.
I favor the designing of a button on
the loyal design. These buttons should
be given by the legislature and should
be won only by those who have
served their state as jurymen. Jury
servers in this day deserve marks of
"Mulder can be committed and the
republic will live. But there can bs
no fooling with the jury bux and the
government life. I propose to do all I
can in Cook county to see that th
man who lays his hand on the jury
box gets just punishment. For a wee!;
row we have worked iq Chicago ani
have ro jury in a case ready for trial.
Yet $500 has beea spent.

"Some persons can start a thing and

my way leads that is where I am
"It ias been proved that the cor
porate conscience is inferior to the in
dividual conscience. I do not see any
difference, however, between a public
and a private thief.
"Juries should have the common law
powers restored to them. I favor the
restoration of this common law in Illi
nois." The speaker assailed the Illinois in
determinate sentence law and pointed
out the faults which he finds in this
act and said he i3 in the fray to see
that it is repealed by the next legisla
ture. Pointing out that the president, con
gress, Justices, judges and juries In
the United States have no arbitrary
power, the speaker said that only 'n
the Illinois parole board can arbitrary
power be found.

"When you visit the Joliet prison
and see the parole hoard, yo; see a
czar that should have no place on
American soil," he said. "Give the
Juries back their pristine powe r.
- "The parole law gives the prisoner
the idea that the punishment of his
crime depends on his political in'iu-c-nce.'
said Mr. Wayman.
"I think that the attorneys cf Illi
nois should be able to frame a repeal
ing law which would be favored by
the legislature and also escnpe the
gubernatorial veto. Thtare was a tim?
when juries were allowed to fix thj
time of sentence. These Juries, wha
hear the evidence, are not infallible,
yet how about the 'ministerial' board
at the prison that has heard nothing?"
Mr. Wayman had with him o.T.cial
documents from the Joliet penitei
