I Dies In County Jail. Robert Carl
son of this city died at 6:20 Saturday
evening in the county jail, where he
had been confined last week to answer
to a serious charge. He had drank
heavily during his life and was a nerv
ous wreck when taken to jail. Death
was due to excessive drinking. He was
born in this city and was 25 years of
age. He had been employed as porter
for several years by Pete Anderson,
proprietor of a saloon at 1C01 Second
avenue. Deceased is survived by bis
mother at 1219 Seventh avenue, two
sisters and one brother. The funeral
was held this afternoon.
To Remain In Mollne. "We have o
plans for building a foundry in East
Moline," said William Butterworth,
president of Deere & Co., when asked
as to the rumor that the company
would transfer its foundry department
to the suburb in the spring and would
manufacture all castings there. He
said: ''The rumor was probably found
ed on the fact that the East Moline
Land company some time ago asked
us to build there, on the understanding
that our present foundry is Inadequate.
We are turning out what castings we
need in the present foundry, and have
no plans at present for any building
that will give us a larger foundry. No
buildings of any kind have been de
cided on," added Mr. Butterworth, put
ting a quietus on the report that a new
office building would be build on the
present foundry site.
Shot by Unknown. George Halbos
was shot through the band and through
the hip Sunday evening by an unknown
Greek, said to be residing in Moline.
The Mollne Greek was visiting several
of his countrymen at East Moline Sun
day afternoon and met Halbos, who
remembers of having seen the same
man about four years ago and at which
time they bad a quarrel. The men
started across the street at Second
avenue, between Eighth and Ninth,
and as they reached the center of the
road, the strange" Greek opened fire
upon Halbos. Two shots took effect,
and Halbos fell to the ground with a
flesh wound in his left hand and an
other in his t right leg. Two Greeks,
Buspicloned of being connected with
the shooting trouble in East Mollne,
were arrested In Moline and taken to
East Moline. It is thought that one of
them at least knows something about
tha.trouble or was connected with It.
