STEAL IN STATE
Startling Evidence Unearthed
in Chicago by Prosecuting
. - Attorney Migill.
ONE MAN GETS $67,0002
Another Pockets $14,000 and Disap-j
pears Facts Being Presented
to Grand Jury Here.
It is understood nearly 100 wit
nesses from various localities in the
state will be Summoned before the
Rock Island county grand jury this
week in connection with the investi
gation of the Fraternal Tribunes
scandal. The developments are grow
ing more sensational daily, and the
enormity of the affair is Just begin
ning to become apparent. It proves
to have been a systematic loot of the
funds of at least four fraternal or
ders, the Fraternal Tribunes, Amer
ican Home Circle, the Independent
Order of Mutual Aid, and a society that
accepted negroes as risks, but the
name of which State's Attorney Li
M. Magill could not recall.
I must decline to discuss matters
before the grand jury here," Mr. Ma
gill said on his return from Chicago
tms morning. "Whether, as intimat
ed, a Chicago federal officeholder in
Chicago is concerned, I must refuse
to say. I will neither confirm nor deny
anything on that score. I simply want
to say that I shall do my whole duty
In this inquiry without fear or favor.
I might add that from appearances the
disclosures will startle the whole state
when they are made public."
The disclosures, as has been
stated, are due to the efforts of J. F.
McBride of Chicago, who was elected
head of the Tribunes after the disso
lution of the merger with the Home
Circle. From what at first seemed the
misappropriation of $5S,000 in tn
Tribunes, which, however, he recov
ered has grown into embezzlement on
a larger scale involving other societies
which. It Is said, will reach hundreds
. of thousands. Mr. McBride has been
persistent and in his probe Into the
Tribunes has had the cooperation of
W. C. Galloway, T. J. Medill, M, H.
Sexton and Robert Rexdale, all of
whom are astonished by the revela
tions. At the Chicago End.
The Chicago TTibune of this morn
ing sheds some new light on the Fra

been before the grand jury here the
past few weeks, printing the following
"Embezzlement of $67,000 ty one

were some of the discoveries made in
this city by State's Attorney Lawrence
M. Magill of Rock Island county pre
vious to his return home yesterday.

of such prominence in public life that

"'The evidence I have secured,' said
State's Attorney Magill, 'will be pre

its nature in advance, but the frauds

State's Attorney Wayman and as a re
Buit there also may be a grand Jury
investigation in Cook county possibly
a third, in Sangamon county.
"The conference with Mr. Wayman
was the second on the subject, the
first having been sought by Mr. Magill
just when State Representative Wheel

were before the special grand jury in
vestigating legislative corruption. Bo

Magill's visit was erroneously attrib

said to be charged to the Fraternal
Tribunes' officers. ' .

Man Who Unearthed
The Tribunes Scandal
J. F. McBride of Chicago, who was
elected supreme tribune of the Fra
ternal Tribunes after the absorption
of the American Home Circle, is en
titled to the credit for exposing the
condition that resulted In the wreck
ing of the former society, a Rock Is
land Institution. Mr. McBride, sus'
pecting he had been called to the
head of the order to protect others,
had an early confirmation of his sus
picions, and demanded the present
grand jury investigation not only to
punish the wrongdoers, but as
means of vindicating himself and oth
ers identified with the order, and
placing the odium for the scandal
where it belonged.
mer officers, excepting that J. F. Mc
Bride of Chicago was elected supreme
tribune. It was Mr. McBride who un
earthed what he believed were misap
propriations and recovered some of the
funds. In conjunction with T. J. Me-
dill, M. H. Sexton, W. C. Galloway and
Robert Rexdale, Mr. McBride brought
the alleged embezzlements to the at
tention of State's Attorney Magill, who
laid the evidence before the grand Jury.
"Since Its reorganization the busl
ness of the Fraternal Tribunes has
passed Into the hands xt the Northern
Life Insurance company of Rock Is
land. This move was to protect the
members of the Tribunes, on whose
funds death claims of the American
Home Circle had been a heavy drain.
The name of the fourth concern has
not been definitely dislosed.
Wurman Talks of Inquiry. J
'State's Attorney "Wayman at night
confirmed Mr. Magill's statement that
the Rock Island county prosecutor had
called upon him in relation to the In
surance scandal and said the question
discussed was whether jurisdiction of
the alleged frauds, the proper place for
investigation, was here or in Rock Is
land. Mr. Wayman promised, that if
developments showed a Cook county
innuiry was needed, it would .- be
"A Chicago friend of Mr. Magill,
himself a well known politician, said
that he was acquainted with some lo
cal angles of the inquiry and confirm
ed the Rock Island's man's -statement
that men of exceptional prominence
" 'Both republicans and democrats
are mixed up in this,' he said. 'I know
of one former state offielal, well known
throughout Illinois, who will have
much explaining to do. He now holds
a federal position.'
"Pocketed Money, Then Left."
"In explanation of the alleged em
bezzlement of $67,000 as discovered In
Chicago by State's Attorney Magill, It
was said that he just stuck the sum
In his pockets and walked away.'
"Mr. Magill was disappointed in not
being able to locate the former officer,
wanted as a witness, who was said to
have decamped with $14,000, but learn
ed he had gone to Springfield recently,
and a detective was placed on his trail
with orders to follow him until cap
tured. This man, it was said, could
give conclusive evidence regarding the
misappropriation of large amounts."

dissolution between the two organiza

The members of the American Home
Circle who have made complaint say
they have been unable to get any

HORSE ON A BUYER
Edward Bollaere Scents Bunko
Game and Has Trader
FALSE PRETENSES CHARGE
Mr cey Is Returned and Complainan
Pays Costs Worthless Check
Gets Man in Trouble.
. Police Magistrate C. J. Smith had a
weighty case on Land this afternoon
when Frank McCafferty. a horse trad
er, was brought ; before him on
charge of obtaining money on false
pretenses. The complainant was Ed
ward Bollaere. The latter had given
a sum of money to a friend and ordered
him to buy a horse with it and to keep
$5 of the amount as a commission
The agent went to McCafferty and se
cured a horse for $102. The horse was
; not a magnificent specimen and the
agent was just a little doubtful if his
employer would fall for the transac
tion. The horse trader assured the
agent, however, that if the horse did
not prove satisfactory, it could be re
turned back and the purchase price
would be paid back. The horse was
then turned over to Bollaere and he
used it for several days hitched to
plow. Today he decided that he had
been beaten, and without making any
attempt to get his money back, he
had McCafferty arrested. The . case
was dismissed. Bollaere was paid
back his $102 and he stood the costs
of the trial.
Held Under Heavy Don da.
Frank Sullivan was arrested last
night after trying to pass a worthless
check for $10 at the New Harper. The
check could not be called a forged one
because Sullivan signed his own name
on It and took a chance on passing it
without it being discovered that he
had no. credit at the bank. . The check
was on the State bank of this city,
Sullivan admitted ' having signed the
check and also that he had attempted
to pass it, but said that he was drunk
at the time and that he did not know
what he was doing. Magistrate Smith
decided to hold him to the grand jury
to answer for his deed and his bonds
were fixed at $1,000. He was unable
to furnish this bond, and the result
was that he has joined Sheriff Klttil-
sen's force of star boarders at the
county jalL The charge against him
is one of attempting to obtain money
under false pretenses.

PRICE OF COAL HERE
RAISED 22 CENTS
Local Market Seriously Affected by
Strike of the Miners in
In spite of the fact that hot weath
er is fast approaching soft lump coal
this morning was advanced 25
cents per ton, bringing the
price up to $3.50 retail. The
Etiike of the miners in the state, of
course, is the cause and until it is
settled the price will not take a down
ward trend. At present the 3upply
in Rock Island is somewhat limited.
Local dealers are for the most part
without coal and are unable to sup
ply even the smaller demands.
Most of the coal secured now is
coming from Indiana. It is rumored
that the raise today will not be the
only one and that another will be
made June 1. If the weather which
is due, comes, all will be well, but if
we should happen to be pursued with
tha sample of weather which we have
been Laving for some weeks, the coal
mrket will be entirely exhausted.
The iccal factories have not yet been
effected having a considerable sup
ply in storage.
R0ST AGAIN TONIGHT?
Weather Man Says So and His Bat
ting Average Is .500.
For the fifth time this month a frost
warning was Issued today by the weath
er bureau. Twice out of the four pre
vious predictions the expected freeze
came. If it puts in appearance tonight
it will bring the weather man's batting
average up, however hard it may go
with the rest of us.

Interesting Items From
Our Grocery Dept. ,
You can buy cheaper potatoes than these good, firm, sound Minnesota
potatoes we're sending out, but we doubt if you can buy any as good
as these. When you pay us 50 cents a bushel for these potatoes you're
saving money every time. There are positively no bad ones among
them. - - .
Ask one of tha grocery clerks to show you the Ferndell canned
peaches, Ferndell canned pineapple, Ferndell canned vegetables. We
keep an open sample all the time and want our customers to taste
them and see how delicious these Ferndell canned fruits really are.
At last w have found a coffee "blend" that suits us the genuine
Mandalay 'Plantation Coffee. No amount of talk here can equal or
tell of thU coffee itself. We do, however, say that this genuine Man
dalay Plsntation Coffee is equal to any 35 cent coffee you ever used;
and our price is not 35 cents, but 25 cents a pound. There are going
to be hundreds of users of this genuine Mandalay Plantation Coffee in
Moline. May we number you, who read this, among them?
Figure up the money these
grocery prices here will 6ave
