' CENTRAL CHURCH
Crumbling Foundation Gives
i Way Under Weight of the
'; East Wall:
OCCURS IN EARLY MORNING

Thinking it an Earthquake
Police Guard Building.
Nearly half of the east wall of the
old Central Presbyterian church. Sec
ond avenue, between" Fourteenth and
Fifteenth streets, caved in this morn
ing between 2 and 3 o'clock, and the
remainder of the building was render
ed so unsafe that a policeman was
placed on guard there with orders to
keep the curious at a safe distance.
The old church has been considered
dangerous for some time, but It has
been used for various purposes ever
since it was abandoned by the Cen
tral congregation a year ago. Several
weeks ago it was used by the Moose
lodge, and just recently it was a bal
loting place for children who wished
to express their views on the local op
tion question. It is very fortunate that
the accident did not occur while these
' meetings were in progress, as many
2f deaths might have resulted.
Foundation GItm Way.
An examination of the wall which
caved in shows that it was the foun
dation which was at fault, although
the walls were very willing to give
way. The foundation under the build
ing was apparently not properly
bound together when constructed and
it split into two parts under the great
strain which it has held up for years.
The foundation is of brick and is four
courses wide. It is customary In these
days to bind the courses together ev
ery few layers by means of bricks laid
across the courses instead of length
wise. This precaution was not ob-
T. served very closely when the old build
ing was constructed and not enough of
these binding courses were laid, with
the result that the wall was really two
thin walls standing together. The
weight upon them finally caused them
to spread apart for a distance of 25
feet The wall above that portion of
the foundation merely sank to the
ground, carrying a part of the floor
Felt Lfke Earthquake.
' The crash and the shock of the tons
of falling brick aroused a number of
the neighbors, who feared that an
earthquake had taken place. Several
dressed and came out of their homes,
but by that time all was quiet and
they went back to bed without seeing
what had happened. They thought
that it had been the bumping together
of freight cars in the yards less than
a block away and they expected to see
some badly damaged box cars In the
The remainder of the east wall has
the appearance today of being ready to
give way at any moment and a police
- man is busy keeping curious specta-.-
torB at a safe distance. The rear walls
Zand the walls on the front and west
sides are In danger of falling, and it is
apparent that the building should be
razed at once. .
One of Indmnte
The old building has done service as
a church for many years, having been
erected in 1857. It was known then
as the United Presbyterian church, but
in more recent times Its name was
changed to the Central Presbyterian
church following a split In the congre
gation over the slavery question. The
presentt one is not the first disaster
which overtook the building, as in 1875
its high steeple was blown down Into
the street This steeple Is reputed to
have been the highest In the vicinity,
so high in fact that the present one
does not come closer than 100 feet to
the former height After it was blown
down into the street the congregation
decided that it was too high, and the
repairs to the broken tower consisted
mainly In covering the belfry and leav
ing the Immense steeple off.

(By Local Option League.)
For two years the liquor men hate
been saying" "prohibition doesn't pro
hibit Wewill sell more liquor under
local option than under license." For
the same length of time the anti-saloon
people have been asking, "Why, then,
do you oppose local option if it is to
increase your business?" After all
this time, the liquor men have finally
given an answer. In Friday evening's
papers they explained why they do not
v ant local option, even though It will
I'Jcrease business. Here Is what they
say: "Even though prohibition fails to
prohibit, fcy its very nature it casts
the imputation of illegality on the
methods of trade that spring up in its
wake, and drives the business into
hands that will adapt themselves to
thjis illegitimate trade. The liquor
men, while they could" make as much,
If not more, than before naturally do
not wish to see their business under
a ban, and relegated into the hands of
those who are not subjected to regu
lation or restriction."
On reading euch an "argument" one
feels like exclaiming, "Oh, fudge," or
something equally forcible. The liquor
men are such law abiding, peaceful,
patriotic citizens that they would not
like to have their business increased
If that Increase carried with It the
stigma of illegitimacy. And yet, "they
could make as much, if not more than
before," if the town went dry. How
could they do it? By the very same
methods that they are using today.
They have absolutely no regard for
the laws which are supposed to regu
late their business now, and if the
local option law Is put into operation,
by their own admission, quoted above,
verbatim, they propose to violate that
law, and by violating it, "make as
much, if not more," than at present.
There are two or three things that
the people of Rock Island need to re
member. Two years ago the saloon
men promised faithfully to clean up
their business, eliminate the objection
able features, and obey the laws pro
vided they were allowed to continue
in business. But did they ever "clean
up" ia fulfillment of that promise?
Not so you can notice it.
For two years they have gone from
bad to worse in their law defying
course. They have broken the laws
at will. They have disregarded every
statute that stood In their way. They
have defied the laws of the city and
of the state. If there is any law they
have not broken it is because it paid
them to obey it . If they are allowed
to continue in their business it means
a continuation of such procedure. Our
city, already known all over the state
as a ' wide open" town, will continue
to be quoted as the worst and most
lawless place outside of Chicago. Tht
saloons will continue to be a scandal
and a disgrace to our municipality.
The dives and gambling dens and bs
houses will continue to flourish.
The saloons of Rock Island are prac
ticed lawbreakers. They are operated
today in open defiance of the laws by
which they claim to be regulated.
We defy them to contradict success
fully the statement that they are fla
grant violators of the state and city
And yet, they want the present ar
rangement continued, so that their
business need not be branded as ille
gitimate. LOCAL OPTION PRESS COMMIT

From the official records from the
city treasurer's office it appears that
financially the city Is In bad straits.
The appropriations for city purposes
had to be cat considerably In many in
stances. The losa of $29,000 from re
tall and wholesale liquor licenses
could not be made op from any other
source, hence the necessity for cut
ting the appropriations.
For the year ending April 1, 1908,
the appropriation of the city council
for corporate purposes amounted to
For the year ending April 1, 1909,
the appropriations amounted to $135,
238.39 and for the year ending April
1, 1909, the appropriations amounted
to $151,868. These appropriations in
cluded the amounts needed for Bmkr
ing funds, interest on bonds and
For street cleaning there was ex
pended in the year 1907 $5,451.55;
1908-09 $3,968.08; 1909-10 up to March
28, 1910, lacking three days of a full
fiscal year $3,332.46.
Every citizen of Galesburg readily
admits that at no time have the
streets of Galesburg been as dirty as
they are now.
The appropriation for the city engi
neer was cut from $2,500 to $600 for
each of the two following years.
For repairs of streets the cut was
from $2,000 in 1907 to $500.
Twenty-six hundred dollars was cut
from the appropriation for street light
The appropriation for water works
was cut from $26,320 in 1907 to $16,660
in 1908 and $21,684 in 1909. Although
one of the first steps to recoup the
loss from liquor licenses the water
rates were increased in July, 1908,
from a minimum charge of 35 cents
per month to a minimum charge of 50
cents per month.
On" April 1, 1909, the floating in
debtedness amounted to $39,457.92,
caused by the so-called no fund war
rants. In order to pay these off the
city borrowed $45,000 from the banks
On April 1, 1910. the floating indebt
edness was $48,300 and on March 2S.
In order to pay some of the old
bills the finance-committee on Sep
tember, 1909. October. 1909, and on
February, 1910. transferred from the
special assessment fund to the general
fund of the city various sums amount
ing together to $16,200.43. Thes9 mon
eys had accumulated in the assess
ment fund since 1S92, representing
cost of special assessments which the
city had paid for, no accumulation be
ing permitted now, and the money Is
taken out as fast as collected. The
total bonded indebtedness at present
data amounts to $133,000.
Prohibition has not stopped drunk
enness, or promoted temperance in
Galesburg. During the two years end
ing May 1. J908, according to the cor
oner's report, one death occurred from
alcoholism. From May 1, 1908, to

according to the report of the state's
attorney. Fifty-six cases convictions
were had. The amount of fines Im
posed was $2,860 and jail sentences
were 1,170 days.
Since the beginning of this year no
