THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, FRIDAY. JtfAIiCII 25, 1910.
A BALKY WO.
WiHiam Pallit of Davenport,
When Interfered With,
THREE TO HANDLE HIM
He Is Finally Landed at the Station
" . With a Pair of Black Eyes and
Right Type for Council
William Pallit and Anna Peterson,
both of Davenport, came over to thl3
side of the river at noon, on pleasure
bent, and ended up in. the police sta
tion after a fierce row between the
man and three husky police officers.
When the twain, both of whom are
pretty well along in years, reached
Twentieth street and Fourth avenue,
the woman insisted upon getting out
of the rig. She finally succeeded in
doing so. although Pallit attempted to
force her to remain in with him. Af
ter she had got out, Pallit jumped out
after her and seized his whip. By
standers who were witnessing the oc
currence saw that the man intended
to beat the woman and the police were
. notified by telephone. Two officers
arrived in the police buggy. By that
time the woman had hurried into a
store nearby, her companion following
her, still with the apparent intention
of striking her with the whip. Officer
Dennis Bennett notified Pallit that he
was under arrest and ordered him to
get Into the police buggy for a trip to
the police station but Pallit resisted,
and a fight took place between him
and the officer. The latter was re
inforced by Officers Sehnert and
Kirsch. Pallit was finally conquered
and thrown into the buggy, where
two of the officers held him while the
other drove the horse.
PrlMonrr Badly Bruised.
When the buggy reached the station
, the prisoner was a sorry spectacle,
but the fight was not taken out of
him yet, and he continued to struggle
and demanded to know on what
charge he had been arrested. Both
his eyes were blacked and his face
badly bruised, and even if the judge
does not see fit to punish him, he has
already paid for resisting an officer
cf the law.
After getting the man behind the
Lars. Officers Sehnert and Bennett re
; urned to the scene of the trouble, and
v-hile Bennett took charge of the
ytgy in which the pair had come
.er from Davenport, Sehnert located
; o woman and took her to jail. She
'-.imed that Pallit had made indecent
orosals to her and had wanted her
accompany him to a place where
would not go. This resulted in
- retting out of the buggy and pre
dating the fight between Pallit and
o officers. '
The trial of Pallit will be held this
'. veiling before Magistrate C. J. Smith.

spring, and his election is conceded
by his friends, irrespective of politics.
Mr. Xaab is a native son of the
Third. Since boyhood he has been
associated in business with his father,
Christian Xaab, one of the pioneer
meat dealers of the city. For several
years the son has been the manager
of his fathers interests.
He has proven his Vorth in a busi
ness capacity in his private affairs,

affairs. Reared in the ward which he
seeks to represent in the coucil, Mr.
Xaab Is personally known to all of
the voters of that section of the city,
and they are indicating their loyalty

LICENSE IS VOID
That is Ruling of Judge Ramsay
on Permit of Camiel Morr
tier .Saloon Keeper.
surety is a Non-resident
Continues in Business on Seventeenth
Street Under Same Conditions
Case Will be Appealed.
Judge F.' D. Ramsay - handed down
his decision toaay in the quo war
ranto proceedings brought by the resi
dents in the neighborhood of Seven
teenth street : and . Fourth avenue
against Camlel Mortier to see by what
right he was conducting the saloon on
the corner of Fourth' avenue and
Seventeenth street. The decision was
to the effect that the license under
which the place was operated from
April 1 until Nov. 1, 1908, was null and
void. The judge held that It was not
necessary for the saloonkeeper to se
cure the consent of the owners of
abutting" property to reopen the sa
loon, even though it had been vacant
for a period of seven months, because
during that period of time repeated
efforts had been made to secure a
license and the license money had
been wrongfully refused by the city
treasurer. Therefore the residents
could not force the saloon - out . of
business on account of the place hav- j
ing been vacant seven months before
being licensed by the administration
which followed that of Mayor H. C
Schaeffer who repealed the license In
the first place. '
Bomd Are fivt Lerml.
The one thing which caused the
judge to declare the license void was
that the name of C. Hennlng, the
brewer, was affixed to the bond which
is required of 'all saloonkeepers under
the city ordinances. This ordinance
says that the bondsmen must be resi
dents, of the city as well as freehold
ers in the county, and as Mr. Hennlng
lives at La Salle, be could not legally
put his signature on Mortiers bond.
The saloon is now being run under
another license granted Nov. 1, 1909,
and as Mortier has the same bonds-,
men it is possible to have the present
license declared void, as was its pred
ecessor. This will require another
suit, however, and the saloonkeeper
may continue to run hi3 place regard
less of the fact that his former license
has been declared null and void.
Will Ffgrht Derlalon.
William McEniry, attorney for Mor
tier, has stated that the case will be
carried to the appellate court in order
to show that the former license was
not void by reason of the bondsman
having been a non-resident of the city.
He claims that the city ordinance
which requires this is not in ' accord
ance with the state law. If this can
be proven, Mortier will not. be in line
for a fine as the result of having run
a dram shop without a sufficient
license, as he will be In case the deel-!
sion rendered by Judge Ramsay is al
lowed to stand as final. This would
also remove all doubt as to the validity j
