DRIVER OF AUTO
Police Captain Giles Has F. O.
Salisbury Arrested for Ex
ceeding Speed Limit.
IS RELEASED UNDER BOND
Action Follows Collision Between
Testing Machine and Bobsled In .
Which Six Were Injured.
F. G. Salisbury, driver of the testing
fear which collided with a coasting bob
Son Forty-fourth street Saturday afber-
noon, has been arrested and will be
; prosecuted on a charge of having ex-
ceeded the speed limit. W. A. Giles,
i police captain, signed the complaint.
! Captain Giles' young son was among
those injured In the collision. The
parents of some of the other Injured
children) have also expressed a desire
to prosecute the driver. '
Salisbury was brought before the
. police magistrate this morning and at
his request the case was continued un
j til Wednesday evening. He was re
leased after furnishing a bond of $200
signed by the members of the Root &
! Vandervoort Engine company, by
whom he la employed.
All Aaralnst Kim.
There seems to be plenty of evidence
against. Salisbury, as practically every
, one who saw the accident has ex-
pressed himself as convinced that
the automobile was greatly exceeding
the speed) limit of 10 miles allowed by
law. Several carpenters who were em
ployed at a new house nearby were of
the opinion that the testing machine
rwas traveling at a speed of at least 25
mites an hour. A professional man
from Moilae who Is himself the pos
sessor of an automobile states that he
thinks the machine was going at a
speed of 20 miles per hour at the time
of the collision. Salisbury denies this
: fact and says that the speed indicator
i of Ms machine showed he was going
only 10 miles- an hour. The. force with
: which the machine hit the curbing
.after the aocldenfr seems to contradict
the evidence of the speedometer, how
ever, as the rear wheels of the ma
chine were almost demolished.
The children were injured more se
verely than was first believed. Some
of them seem to have suffered inter
nally and their condition . is being
watched closely as it is impossible to
tell at once how they are. Little Ebba
Anderson seems to have suffered the

force, remained unconscious for 24
hours, but he seems to be recovering
now. His head and body were hurt.
George Bushna, S years old, had his
ear cut and his head so severely
bruised that it is- feared he suffered
a slight concussion of the brain. Ara

Martin Norman, S' years old, was hurt
internally in the stomach, but his phy
sician expresses the hope that it will
not prove serious. Viola Youngert, 14 j
years old, had her face and head cut j

Joseph, 8-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Exner, 712 Fourteenth-and-a-half
street, suffered a serious ac- j
cident while coasting with some older j
boys on Eighteenth avenue Saturday i
afternoon, the bob overturning during
its descent of the hill and the Exner
boy being caught under the sled and
dragged in such a manner as to cause
a fracture of his left thigh. He was
carried to his home and a physician
summoned to attend him. The little
fellow will be laid up for some time
with his injury.

TURN NEAT TRICK
Y. M. C. A. First Team Players
Appear at Augustana in Sec
ond Five's Uniforms.
TO LEARN COLLEGE FLOOR
Students Taken Completely Unawares
and Are Defeated by a Score
of 32 to 17.
Rock Island Y. M. C. A. first team
turned a neat trick Saturday evening
in Augustana college gymnasium. A
basketball game had been scheduled
between Augustana college second
team and the Y Maroons as a curtain
raiser to the real game of the. evening
between Augustana first team and the
Moline Plow company five. When the
curtain raiser was called, however, the
Y flrit team appeared on the floor for
the contest instead of the Maroons..
The association men made no at
tempt to conceal the fact, but marched
on the floor wearing the first team
suits. When the point was raised,
however, they protested that they did
not constitute the first team in spite
of the fact that every member of the
regular team, with Robb and Voss,
were in the lineup, and the two lat
ters' places taken by the regular sub
stitutes, Brennan and Vehnamann.
Ciet I'oliitern for Later Content.
The Augustana first team proposed
to play the Y men instead of the Mo
line Plow company team, but the of
fer was turned down, and the game
proceeded between the college second
team and the association five. It is
generally understood that the Y. M. C.
A. men worked the trick in order to
become familiar with the college floor,
a game being scheduled with Augus
tana first team for Feb. 5.
The first half ended 17 to 7 In favor
of the Y Men. The second half was
closer, the college boys holding the
association five to a score of 15 to 10,
making the final score 32 to 17 in fa
vor of the Y. M- C. A. team.
The second game was a runaway for
the college first team, the plow com
pany team being unable to hold its own
against the collegians. The basket
throwing of Larson was a feature of
the game, the college forward playing
a brilliant game. The final score was
66 to 15 in favor of the college.

gates bringing hack with them soma
of the enthusiasm of the stirring con
vention. More than 3.C00 delegates at
tended the convention, representing 722
colleges and universities of 29 differ

vention. It was announced at the
meeting that Augustana college ranked
seventh among the institutions con
tributing funds to missionary enter
prises, being only exceeded by the
largest universities of the country such

BrgrtnnliiK In 1880.
Sigfrid Blomgren, one of the dele
gates, spoke on the history of tho
movement. It began, he said, In 1886,
at Mt. Hermon, Mass.. when a religious
conference was held, led by three
prominent educators. Wilder of
Princeton, Tewksbury of Harvard and
Clark of Oberlin. Before the con
ference closed 100 delegates had re
corded their purpose to become for
eign missionaries. The organization
was made permanent in 18S8 at
Northfield, Mass., the movement in
corporating under' the laws of the
state of New York.
The movement is primarily to
recruit missionaries from the ranks
of the students of the country. The
motto of the organization is: "Tho
evangelization of the world in this
generation." It is strictly non-sectarian,
every student who volunteers be
ing recommended to his own denom
ination or church to be sent Into the
field. Since the movement commenc
ed 4.34C students have volunteered
to become missionaries and have ac
Need of More Volunteer.
The other delegates who spoke last
night were Oscar Montan, C. O. Nel
son, Victor Lindeblad, W. X. Magnu
son and O. R. Karlstrom. AM thg
speakers emphasized the need of
more volunteers to go into the mis
sion fields and pointed out the great
opportunities which are now opening
up in the heathen world. A great
awakening is in progress in nearly ev
ery heathen country and the time is
ripe for the introduction of Chris
tianity. The friendly attitude of all
heathen governments towards Chris
tianity is also growing every year
and less difficulties are encountered
in the spread of Christian teachings.
