THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1910.
FOR MISSING NOTE
Fails to Recover Dr. A. L.
Craig's Paper from Henry
PROBABLY IT IS CASHED
Represented Only Asset of Fraternal
Tribunes McBride Has Kit
Sheriff Edward Kittilsen of Rock Isl
and county may have to meet from his
own pocket the face value of a note for
$S.5O0 as the result of an error by a
deputy In his office In releasing the
paper to W. T. Knowles, an attorney of
Henry county, without an adequate re
ceipt, A representative from the sheriff's
office visited Galva yesterday in an
effort to regain possession of the note,
but the trip availed nothing but disap
pointment, according to information
given out today at the office of the
As stated In The Argus of yesterday,
the note in question represents the one
remaining asset of the wrecked Fra
ternal Tribunes society. It is a per
sonal obligation of Dr. A. L. Craig, one
of the 13 indicted by the Rock Island
county grand jury for embezzlement
and conspiracy In connection with the
alleged looting of the funds of the Fra
ternal Tribunes. Craig was supreme
medical examiner of the Tribunes
when he was paid $15,000 to resign his
office, together with his associates in
the control of the soiety, to give con
trol to the officers of the American
To Satisfy Claims.
After the dissolution of the order,
Craig and his associates returned the
money they had received for resigning
their offices. Craig paid over $6,500 in
cash and gave his personal note for the
remainder. The note was held by J.
F. McBride, who was elected supreme
Tribune of the order following the dis
solution. Mr. McBride's plan was to
have the note cashed and the money
apportioned among the remaining hold
ers of death claims against the order.
Knowles i3 attorney for three Henry
county claimants. Knowles had the
note attached by the Rock Island coun
ty sheriff. Mr. McBride willingly sur
rendered the note, but was careful to
secure a sufficient receipt for the same
from the sheriff. Mr. McBride sup
posed that the paper was to be held by
the court authorities pending the ap
portionment of the money among the
Blunder by Deputy.
The story is that a deputy in the
sheriff's office relinquished the note to
Attorney Knowles, failing to protect
the office with a proper receipt.
At any rate, Knowles seems to have
put one over on the Rock Island county
sheriff. Whether he has negotiated the
paper or not is not know here. How
ever, it would have been an easy mat
ter for Knowles to have returned the
note to Craig and accepted a fat dis
count in order to get a quick settle
ment for his clients. Mr. McBride will
hold Sheriff Kittilsen personally re
sponsible for the $8,500 represented by
the Craig paper. Sheriff Kittilsen leaves
tonight for Chicago on the trail of the
Hatfield After Bondsmen?
It is reported that C. W. Hatfield, the
Chicago Insurance broker, under indict
ment here, has returned from Europe,
and is seeking, through a friend here,
to secure local men to go on his $12,
000 bond. A number of Rock Island
people who were solicited refused the
accommodation. Hatfield Is said to be
ready to put in an appearance here as
soon as he is assured that he can fur
nish the required bond.

Musical Program in the Evening
Officer Herman Sehnert had an ex
citing chase of half a m?.le this morn
ing after a young man whom he had
arrested a short time before and whom
he was taking to the police station.
Ira Slater was the one under arrest.
He was partly intoxicated and had
caused a slight stir In the neighbor
lobd of Twenty-second street by af
fronting several women who happened
to be passing.
Officer Schuert was sent for and the
young fellow was placed under his cus
tody. He thought it unnecessary, to
call the patrol and instead started to
walk Slater to jail. As they passed
Mi.'rrin Bios', livery barn on Third
avenue between Sirteenth and Seven
ttenth streets the prisoner suddenly
d:trted away frcm his captor and ran
through the barn to the alley. Sehnert
recovered from his surprise in a mo
ment and gave chase. Down the alley
and north on Sixteenth went the man.
At Second avenue he turned west and
then south again and around the court
house and back to Second avenue. At
this point the officer hailed a wagon
belonging to a second hand store,
which happened to be passing, and
the chase was continued. The pursued
man then made for the railroad yards.
At First avenue and Thirteenth street
Sehnert got out of the wagon and pur
sued on foot again and the rest he had
gained by the ride in the wagon ena
b'ed him to overtake the young fellow
and get him again. He was brought
bick to jail in the wagon. He will
probably be sent to the county Jail on
charge of disorderly conduct.
Other Police Notes.
Two colored women, Suckie Cowfee
i and Lizzie Dorsey, were arrested last
i night on the charge of being street
; walkers, and they spent the night in
! jail. This morning Police Magistrate
i C. J. Smith fined each of them $3 and
costs and ordered them to get out of
the city unless they could change their
ways. John McCarthy was sent to. the
county jail for 10 days, as was Vil
! liam Johnson. They were tried this
morning in the police court and found
guilty of disorderly conduct. Both men

The fourth incendiary attempt to de
stroy a two-story frame house at the
corner of Third street and Seventh
avenue, which was almost totally de
stroyed by fire about .three months
ago, was made last night. Last Tues
day night the fire companies respond
ed to a call at that number and extin
guished a blaze. Last night at 12 and
again about 1:40 this morning the com
panies were again called to the same
place. Since the fire three months
ago the house has not been occupied,
and it seems to be an eyesore to the
neighbors in that vicinity since that
time. Tas the owners left it in the same
condition since the first fire, not mak
ing any repairs on it. Kerosene was
pourned all over what Is loft of the
building and then ignited. Who the
guilty parties are has not been re
vealed. The building is owned by
Morris & Lewis.
