Central Union Sends a. Check
for $4,000 to City Clerk
Money Will Come in Handy in Tem
porarily Tiding Municipality
The Central Union Telephone com
pany, from its general offices, has sent
to City Clerk M. T. Rudgren official
notice that it is willing to accept the
ordinance adopted by the city council
last month, and the check for $4,000,
which was to be given to the city upon
the ordinance being approved, accom
panied the letter of acceptance.
This action has finally settled the
controversy between the city and the
telephone company, and they are now
at peace with each other and in har
monious accord. This was not true
for the past four years, as the city had
declared the company's franchise void
and the corporation had been operating
under an injunction restraining the
city from interfering with its business.
As a result of the new ordinance the
wires of the company located in the
fire limits will be placed under ground
as rapidly as this can be accomplished.
The fire limits extend from Thirteenth
to Twenty-fourth streets and south to
Money for Salarleo.
The check which accompanied the
letter was a most welcome addition to
the city treasury, inasmuch as the ap
propriations for the salaries of city of
ficials were running pretty low and in
some cases were entirely used up. The
sum received from the telephone com
pany which, by the way, is to reim
burse the municipality for its expenses
during the pendency of the law suit
over the franchise revocation, will pro
vide salary money for some time to
come, probably until the city gets its
share of the annual taxes which are
now being collected. Of the total
amount received from the telephone
company $500 is to be used in install
ing a new police and fire alarm system.

Beat Eetreat After Effecting
Entrance to Strecker &
TAKE NOTHING OF VALUE
Hole Cut in One of Glass Doors and
Lock of Door Opened Discov
ered This Morning.
Evidences of an attempted bur
glary were apparent this morning
when the store of Strecker & Lewis,
Fifteenth street and Second avenue,
was opened by Mr. Strecker. A hole
had been cut in one of the glass
doors and the lock on the inside had
been opened, offering ready access
to the place. Mr. Strecker thought
at once that the valuable supply of
brushes which the firm keeps on
hand had attracted the burglars, but
an examination showed that they
were all intact. His attention was
thereupon turned to the safe behind
the counter, but this, too, was in its
usual shape, and as far as he could
see after looking the store over,
nothing had been taken or even dis
turbed. Had Beea Eatered, Thought.
The evidence was plain, however,
that the store had been .entered. A
glass cutter, probably a diamond, had
been used in cutting out the section
of the glass. Mr. Strecker Is at loss
to account for the fact that 'nothing
in the store was taken or even dis
turbed, as there were many things of
value lying about on the counters.
About $500 worth of fine brushes alone
are kept in stock. It appears that the
only explanation is that the burglars
were frightened away after effecting
an entrance to the place and that they
were afraid to come back again.

Pearl Marshall, a Davenport negress,
was arrested last night by Officer
Church on information furnished to the
local police by the Davenport depart
ment. The woman was charged by
Harry Howard, a negro from Daven
port, with having stolen two diamond
rings from him. It seems that Howard
and the woman were lovers and he
had been calling upon her. He was
pretty well "piped," however, and was
pretty hazy as to what was going on.
When it came time for him to go home
he found that he was minus two dia
mond rings of considerable value, and
he lost r.o time in telling the Daven
port police tnat his "colored gal" had
"swiped" them. The woman in the
meantime had ducked out and come to
and the Davenport police
were unable to find her.
lrotrslst Hfr Innormrr.
She denied having stolen the rings,
although they were found in her pos
session. Her explanation was that her
lover was drunk and that she had
merely taken them to keep him from
morning from Des Moines, where ha
went to attend the marriage of bis son
and where be remained for a visit of
two weeks. Mr. Durden states that he
is not in the least alarmed over the
effort of Rev. R. A. Broyles to be" re
instated as pastor of the Second Bap
tist church. The latter was removed
by the board of control several months
ago. He alleges he has been made the
victim of a factional fight in the
church. Mr. Durden announces that
this evening there will be a further
discussion at the church of the ques
tion, "Resolved, that the condition of
the negro is better in the south than
in the north."
COUNTY JUDGE IS
INVITED TO CHICAGO
Asked to Fill Position in Municipal
Court Made Vacant Temporarily
Judge R. "W. Olmsted of the county
court received a communication today
from Judge Harry Olson, who is at
the head of the municipal court in
Chicago, In which he was requested to
go to Chicago, if possible, and occupy
a seat in the municipal court for a
period of 15 or 20 days while one of
the regular municipal judges is re
covering from an attack of sickness.
The letter .explained that an act of the
legislature made it possible for county
judges to exchange places with mu
nicipal judges and that therefore Jt
was thought advisable to fill the bench
of the sick judge with a county judge.
Press of business makes it impossible
for Judge Olmsted to accept the invi
tation to sit in the municipal court of
Chicago, although he states that he
would very much like to have done so.

There are about 50 stores in the chain

store. This Is done by getting them
to subscribe for small amounts of
stock which, besides paying a 7 per
cent rate of interest on the investment,
entitles the holder to a rebate of five
per cent on all purchases. These re

"In a monopoly of the trade of the

Builders' association was held this
afternoon at the Turner hall in thl3
city and boss carpenters from all the

ing was called for the purpose of dis
cussing the demands of the journey
These demands are for higher wages
and for a stronger recognition of the
union by a promise not to buy from
local shops which are run on the open
shop principle. One of the bosses stat
ed in an interview with an Argus rep
resentative: "We are willing to grant
the demands of the carpenters as far as
the increase in wages Is concerned. In
fact, we have already informed them
of that concession. But when it comes
to dictating to us where we shall do
our buying, we feel that they are go
ing too far. This leaves us with prac
tically no choice in this most impor
tant item of our business. If the de
mands of tHe men were more consist
ent we would give them more consid

object to the fact that the dimension
