THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. WEDNE SD AV, MAY 4, 1910.
Simon Gottlieb, in Efforts to
Secure Consent, May Have
'Serious Charge to Face.
FIGURE CHANGE ALLEGED
Owners in Vicinity of Fifth Avenue
,'.' nd Twenty-sixth' Street File
Owners of adjoining frontage have
entered a protest -with the mayor and
city council against the granting of a
saloon license to imon Gottlieb at the
northeast corner of Twenty-sixth street
and Fifth avenue. , It is claimed that
there- are' already four saloons in the
neighborhood; that another is not
necessary, and that the granting of the
r Gottlieb" license "will lead to disorder."
Gottlieb may have a serious charge
to answer to also. It is alleged he al
tered the figures' after the name of
Mr3. 'Wllhelmlna Herbst, owner of 50
feet fronting on Fifth avenue, without
her consent, and it is understood the
grand Jury is to be placed in posses
sion of the facts. . '
'' What Ordinances Say. -
The city ordinances of Rock Island
provide that where a new saloon is to
be established ' the applicant for
license must first obtain the consent
frontage for a distance of 300 feet in
both directions from the front entrance
. V, - J 1 AnVt.a
the. same proportion of consenting sig
natures from the owners of the prop-
erty on the opposite side of the street
or. avenue n which the. building to
be occupied by the saloon is occupied.
In this connection, It is interesting
'.to note that when Gottlieb failed in
- -obtaining: the. necessary frontage con
sent on the north and south sidos of
Fifth avenue, he caused the front en-
- trance -of the proposed saloon to be
sixth street. Mrs. Herbst .".was-'one of
those who siprned for her 50 feet of
frontage for the saloon as originally
- . aaj.ii;u tm.- 1x10.-11.1. vnui tv, v
Fifth avenue. Her property-is at the
' northwest corner of Fifth avenue and
"Twenty-sixth street. When Gottlieb
decided to try-the Twenty-sixth street
main entrance move, it is charged by
Mrs. Herbst that the figures on the
consent petition after her name were
changed from 50 feet to 116 feet, the
latter representing the frontage of her
property on the west side of Twenty-
More Figure Stretched.
It is also found that Simon Fisher,
who owps property on the east side
of Twenty-Sixth; street -adjoining the
Gottlieb, lot, signs as owner of 130 feet
of frontage, when his holdings, it is
claimed by the objectors, - represent
only 114 feet. , Patrick Kelley, who
owns property on the north side of
Fifth avenue between' Twenty-fifth and
Twenty-sixth streets, says that he
6igsed the Gottlieb petition with the
understanding that a store was to be
built on the Gottlieb lot." He had
never been told It was to be a saloon.
Gottlieb's published petition showing
that he has obtained the necessary
consent to the opening of a saloon,
Includes frontage on both Fifth ave
.nue and on Twenty-sixth street, there
by ' Invalidating. the" same, if the pro
visions of ttho ordinance are strictly
construed. "The objecting property
holders say that they propose to see
that the ordinance is respected in all
its provisions. .

CANVASS IS COMPLETED
Deputy Supervisor William Srhaar
mann Confident Work Has Been
William H. Schaarmann, deputy su
pervisor of the census, was busily en
gaged today in gathering the reports
of the precinct 'enumerators, prepara
tory to sending the complete city re
turns to R. R. Wallace, district super
visor, at Hamilton.
"I feel we have secured the names
of every one In Rock Island who
should be counted In the census," Mr.
Schaarmann said. "We will complete
the count today. We are deeply grate
ful to The Argus for the assistance
given us in seouriu' many names
which would otherwise have been
omitted. Since the enumerators com
pleted their canvas at least 25 persons
each day have brought in blanks which
they have filled out. Our one trouble
was to see that a number of people,
who thought that they bad been
missed, were not included in the
enumeration more than once.
. "I cannot estimate just what the
figures will show . our population to
be. In fact, I am under oath not to
divulge any information. I have not
even totalled the figures for my own
district .The figures will be sent di
rectly to Mr. Wallace and as soon as
he completes the district count, I think
it will be published."
se,ooo to 27,O00.
That . there were many misses over
the city, only, last evening The Argus
was advised of an entire block that
had not been visited by the precinct
enumerator. A report was made to
Mr. Schaarmann and he immediately
saw to it that the block was canvassed
and, recorded. Rock Island today, ac
cording to an estimate which The Ar
gus considers reasonably reliable, has
a population ranging between 26.000
and 27,000, and if the ofllcial census
returns go far below this figure thero
is no other explanation than that the
count baa not been complete, de3Dite
that the enumerators and everybody
connected with the work uid his
and her very best to make it so.
