THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. Tl'ESDAT. JANUARY 25, 1910.
BULL AND; WIFE
Society Given Facts Concerning
Couple, Who Long Have
Married in 1883, Following Meeting
at Home of Jtelative of Bride
William Benedict Bull, capitalist
and clubman, and his wife, formerly
Mamie Wood, are divorced.
Mr. Bull confirmed the story, which
became public yesterday in spite of
efforts of the principals to keep it
Incompatibility Is the ground upon
which the decree was granted. But
Chicago society, which has frequently
entertained and been entertained by
the Bulls, assigns two other reasons,
Too much club on Mr. Bull's part.
Too small a fiat for Mrs. Bull.
"We don't hitch," is Mrs. Bull's
Divorced Tiro Works A so.
"Yes, we are divorced two weeks
ago," Mr. Bull says. That, and noth
ing more. He refuses to go into de
tails as to the whys, whens and
"What was the money settlement?"
"Oh, my, no, couldn't think of dis
cussing it. Isn't it enough for you
to know that we are dlvorced?-'
Mr. Bull and his two daughters,
Margaret and Hilda Bull, have taken
apartments at the Virgina Hotel, Chi
cago, In fact, have been living there
for some time. Mrs. Bull has "gone-a-visiting."
Trouble between Mr. and Mrs. Bull
dates back nearly two years. Mr.
Bull's insistence that he be permitted
to live at the club according to the
dictates of his own sweet will, is said
to have caused the first serious break.
Seven-Room Flat Too Small.
Mrs. Bull and the girls were then
living in a seven room flat at 109
Walton Place, Chicago. Mr. Bull's
reply was that the flat was too small.
It was a "tiny" flat tragedy to him.
Anyhow the breach widened and be
came an open break as indicated in
what Mrs. Bull said:
"We have never agreed to any
thing; we never have agreed on any
thing. It is a case of incompatibility.
That is all there is to say about it."
While frequently entertained and
entertaining, it is said of Mr. and
Mrs. Bull that for nearly two years
they never addressed each other.
Once, when they were on the receiv
ing line at a reception, an embarrass
ing situation was created. All the
guests noticed and discussed the mat
ter as being unusual.
Xot even at the wedding of their
daughter. Miss Helen Bull, who was
married to Alan Patrick Campbell,
son of Mrs. Patrick Campbell, the
English actress, did they address
each other. The wedding was cele--otPd
at the old home in Quincy,
"because," as Mrs. Bull said, "we
couldn't have the wedding in such a
tiny flat as ours."
Married 27 Years Ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Bull were married
nearly 2 7 years ago. Mrs. Bull
comes of a prominent Elniira. N. Y..
family. She was Miss Mamie Wood,
related to the late Judge Benjamin
F. Marsh of Quincy, and first met Mr.
Bull while visiting the Marsh family.
An engagement soon followed. They
were married in the spring of 1SS3.
Three daughters and one son were
born. It was Mr. Bull's second mar
riage. Fifteen years ago Mr. Bull, who
was the son of the late Lorenzo Bull,
pioneer banker at Quincy, decided to
remove to the east. He resided in
Elmira, N. Y., for a time, and then
came to Chicago, where he has since
lived. He owned the waterworks
system at Quincy and six years ago
sold it to the municipality for $630,
000. Mr. Bull has a number of large
financial Interests, is president of the
Polar Ice Machine company, and at
the death of his father, a few years
ago, inherited a large estate. His
business interests call him frequently
to Mexico, Cuba, New York and other
sections of the country. Mrs. Bull
spent last week visiting with Mrs. C.
II. Williamson at Quincy, but said
nothing to her of the divorce when
she returned to Chicago Friday night.

Moline Woman's Club.
The February Moline Woman's club
meeting, to be held at the First Congre
gational church, Moline, Feb. 12, will
be a meeting of great interest, both
from the fact that local people will
make the interest keen in temperance
and equal suffrage, and because one of
the foremost speakers of the day, Dr.
B. O. Aylesworth of Colorado, will
speak on the equal suffrage movement.
Realizing that there may be many peo
ple interested in these subjects who
are not affiliated with the club, and
also In an effort to make the attend
ance what It should be for a man of
Dr. Aylesworth's calibre, after so long
a trip, it has been decided to invite
the public, and make the meeting' a
mass meeting. Mrs. Metzgar and Mrs.
L. D. Dunn, who are in charge of the
afternoon's program, have arranged to
have two songs, instead of the usual
musical program, Mrs. Metzgar having
chosen "The White Ribbon Around the
World," and Mrs. Dunn has herself
written words for a song to be sung to
the tune of "John Brown's Body."
These words have been sent to Mrs.
J. J. Dorgan, chairman of the music
committee, with the request that she
Bing the songs, and the entire audience
join in the chorus.

tention was opened yesterday morn-
With Ir. and Mrs. Marquis.
Dr. and Mrs. Marquis entertained
a number of the members of the

way Presbyterian church at their

Carl Oscar Nyquist of Moline and
Miss Emma Johnson of Rock Island
were married at 8 o'clock Saturday ev
ening at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Mayer Levi, 1110 Second avenue, Rock
Island, Rev. L. A. Johnston of the
Swedish Lutheran church, Moline, per
forming the ceremony. The bride was
attended by her sister, Miss Alma
Washington, Jan. 25. The people of
Illinois, as indeed those of every other
state in the union, have particular in
terest in the feature of the preliminary
report of the national waterways com
mission in reference to the relation of
waterway improvements to water
power. A strong recommendation is
made that the greatest care be used
in the conservation of water power
for the use of the people, especially
in view of the fact that it will be used
to a greater extent in the future. Tt
also recommends such legislation as
will prevent any monopoly in the pos
session of water power.
Viewed from Three Points.
The rights of the federal government
in water power may be viewed from
three different standpoints:
First Cases in which the power is
developed on the streams located in
the public lands, where undoubtedly
the government, so far as the rights
pertaining to the abutting ownership
are involved, has full control, and
should exercise the greatest care in
granting away its rights, whatever
they may be.
Second when the power is devel
oped in nonnavigable streams, where
there is private or state ownership, in
which case no federal authority to
regulate or control exists, except to
prevent interference with the naviga
tion of other streams.
Third When water power is devel
oped in navigable streams; in this
case several plans have been proposed
for the collection of tolls upon the
water power developed by dams
whenever their construction is per
mitted by congress. '
No Rights Over Tolls.
The commission is unanimously of
the opinion that there is no proprietary
light or Interest in navigable waters
which would authorize the collection
It must, of course, be admitted that
whenever the privilege of constructing
dams is granted in a navigable stream
there is an undoubted right to Impose
charges sufficient to pay the expenses
of examination and supervision and to
secure the government against cost by
reason of obstacles to navigation cre
ated by the erection of dams; but this
rests upon an entirely different prin
ciple from the proposal to charge tolls.
Interested Only In Navigation.
The control of the federal govern
ment over the navigable streams has
to do with navigation only, and in the
exercise of this jurisdiction the plan
commends itself to the commission of
Inserting in each grant or franchise
under which consent to construct a
dam is given a condition that the
grantee who constructs the dam must
also, whenever necessary to subserve
the interests of navigation, construct
a lock suited to the locality and to the
probable development of traffic, and
also furnish power for the proper oper
ation of the lock or locks.
These requirements, rather than the
imposition of tolls, appeal to the com
mission, because they are free from
legal objections and are in entire ac
cordance with the objects for which
the federal government has jurisdic
tion over the navigable streams.

Teachers at the Horace Mann
Building Take Trip to Gath
er New Ideas.
TO BE THERE TWO DAYS
Pupils Have Holidays as Result
Enrollment in High School In
creased by Promotions.
All the teachers at the Horace Mann
school are to spend Thursday and Fri
day of this week visiting in the public
schools of Chicago and Oak Park.
There will be no school at the Horace
Mann building on those two days, and
the pupils will be allowed freedom from
their studies. It has been customary
in the past for teachers to take two
days each year for the purpose of vls
iiing other schools, and It has usually
been the plan to take one day in each
half of the term.
Visits were usually confined to the
schools of this city or of Moline and
Davenport, and the idea of going to
Chicago on a visit is a new one and
meets with the hearty approval of the
superintendent of schools, H. B. Hay
den, who says the professional spirit
which prompts the teachers to pay
their own expenses just to learn new
ideas is one to be highly commended.
The teachers of the school who will
make the trip are Principal Mary L.
Carter, and Natalie Mirfield, Mary
Quayle, Nettle Dodge. Marie A. Koch,
Esther E. Olson, Julia Eckhart, Julia
Melchoir and Mabel E. Levy.
Second Terra Opens.
Yesterday marked the opening of the
second semester of school and the reg
istration in all the buildings In the city
was very pleasing. A number of little
tots whose ages averaged about 6 were
taken into school for the first time
and a start made on their grade school
education. Of those who finished the
grades, about 70 in number, nearly all
have enrolled at the high school with
the intention of finishing their public
school course with a high school diplo
ma. Many of those who did not en
roll are expected to when the fall
term opens. The graduates from the
three grade schools which promoted
classes to the high school at the close
of the semester are the following boys
