The - application for injunctions
against the county treasurer and the
collectors for the townships of Hock
Island and Moline are to be heard by
Judge F. D. Ramsay in the branch
court July 16. The matter was taken
up yesterday on the opening of the
branch court for the May term and the
judge set the date on which he would

it will serve as a guide for action on
the rest, as they are all of the same

The modern circus is the lineal de
scendant of the ancient Olympic games
of Greece. The Romans adopted this
form of popular amusement from the
Greeks. The name, "circus" is Latin,
meaning a circle; and it was used to
indicate the place in each city where
chariot races, athletic contests, etc.,
were held. The circus flourished in
Rome 2,500 years ago, and for 10 cen
turies later. With the decadence of
the mistress of the world came a de
cline of the circus in character, and
it waa frequently debased by revolting
spectacles, euch as the throwing of
those obnoxious to the government, in
cluding Christians to' wild beasts.
Doubtless It was this that gave the
church a prejudice against the circus.
which is today still held by some ex
tremely conservative church people.
Within the last half century or so, the
circus in America has moved to a
much higher plane than it ever before
occupied. The exhibitions are unob
jectionable on the score of morality;
the comfort and convenience of spec
lators are carefully conserved ; there
Is no more fear of meeting insult or
disagreeable incidents than there is in
attending a lecture or a theatrical per
formance. As a result the old-time
prejudice against the circus as a pro
per amusement for all classes, ages
and sexes is rapidly disappearing.
The love of diversion and harmless
amusement for all classes, ages and
sexes is inborn in man. To forbid
them Is to turn counter to human na
ture. The Creator would not have im
planted this desire for amusement in
mankind were it detrimental. The

"CHARLES THE FIRST" DEAD. ,
Portland, Ore., May 17. The famous
trained monkey "Charles the First"
was roasted to death by the heat of a
radiator in a baggage car on the North
ern Pacific railroad coming from Se
attle, to Portland yesterday. It had
been appearing on the Orpheum circuit
and was booked for nearly 100 weeks
ahead at $750 a week.- Charles sat up
in the smoker with other vaudeville,
players until 6 a. m,, when his owner,
Charles Judge, put him to bed in his
cage in the baggage car. The cage
stood against a radiator -and during
the night the steam was turned on.
When Portland was reached it was
found that the monkey was dead and
there were evidences in the cage of
his frantic attempts to attract atten
tion. The owner declares Charles was
almost human and there was grief
among the players who had been ap
pearing on the Bame bill.
Next Monday evening Is announced
as the date of the opening of the air
dome on Eighteenth street between
Second and Third avenues. If the
weather is unfavorable, the perform
