OLD MAN ENDS
LIFE WITH GAS
Henry E. Mapes Found Dead in
His Office in Moline This
HEALTH HAD BEEN POORLY
lias Been Justice of Peace for Many
Years Two Years in Service
in the Civil War.
Aged, homeless and in ill health,
Henry E. Mapes, for many years jus
tice of peace in Moline, when he re
tired in the little room adjoining his
office on Sixteenth street last night,
locked the windows and doors, and
turned on the gas in the light jets
and the stove on which be cooked his
meals. He was lying dead on the
floor when C. G. M. Stoddard broke
open the door of his office at 8:45
o'clock this morning.
Mr. Mapes remarked to several of
his intimates the past week that he
had run his race; he had nothing
more to live for, and, sickness having
overtaken him, he had about decided
to forestall the suffering that was in
store for him. '
Long In Poor Health.
Deceased had never been in rugged
health since he contracted fever dur
ing service in the civil war, having
enlisted as a member of Company
H, 19th Illinois infantry. He served
only a little o-. er a year. Mr. Mapes
was born Pleasant Mount, Pa., in
1S36. The family settled in Moline
in 1S54. That city had since been
the home of Mr. Mape3. He had
Deceased is survived by two sisters

o'clock Thursday morning at the
Kiiox undertaking rooms, in Moline.

BRIDGE IN NEED OF
REPAIRS; NO MONEY
Committee of the City Council Meet
ing With Representatives of
A meeting of the bridge committee
of the city council was called for this
afternoon to consider the repairing and
strengthening of the spans of the bridge
over the Rock river atMilan. The Tri-City
Railway company has notified the
council that it is ready to go ahead
with its part of the work, for which
it will pay, but it appears the munici
pality has not the wherewithal to pay
for the job. Some of the aldermen
have complained that the railway com
pany has been operating its cars over
the bridges at too great speed consid
ering the weak condition of the struc
tures. It is probable the committee
will have some remedy to rscommend
to the council following its investigation.
FAY ATKINSON IS EDITOR
KIcctcd by Sophomore Class at High
School to Direct "Ye New Tatler."
The sophomore class at the high
school held a meeting last evening
and elected Fay Atkinson to act as
class editor on the new high school
paper, "Ye New Tatler," which is soon
to be issued. At a previous meeting
Marcus Brough was elected to the of
fice, but he was unable to accept it.
The football squad met with Coach
Gray last evening and discussed the
disastrous game of last Saturday. The
general verdict of the players is that
they merely had an off day, duo prin
cipally to the absence from the game
of Captain Litt and that there is r.o
reason why they cannot get togeth?r
and win the remainder of the gam ?s
on the schedule. They will put in the
remainder of this week and all of next
week in preparation for the annual
game with Moline high school which
takes place a week from Saturday.
