THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS
MONDAY, AUGUST 8, 1910.
Over 500 Names on Petitions
Recommending Erection of
ARRANGE FOR VISITORS.
Property Owners and Voters to Be
Allowed to Inspect County
Bastile for Themselves.
The petitions which are being cir
culated for the purpose of inducing
the board of supervisors to place
upon the ballot at the next general
elections, the proposition for levying
a special tax to pay for the build
ing of a new jail, have everywhere
met with a ready response and in
the few days whdch they have been
out," nearly 500 names have been af
fixed to them. The men who are
advancing and promoting the idea
have no intention of stopping with
this number, however, and . the peti
tions will be kept in circulation for
the remainder of the month in hopes
of getting five or six thousand names.
The head of the petition, setting
forth as it does the condition of the
jail, has naturally aroused . consider
able interest among people who had
never given the matter any thought
and many of them have expressed a
desire to see f the jail for them
selves. Accordingly the sheriff has been
communicated with and he has
agreed to allow 'an inspection of The
jail on any evening in the week, pro
vided those who come are voters and
property owners and not" people
merely taking a sight-seeing tour
through the jail for the purpose of
seeing the prisoners.
Humane SovMy Approve.
The Rock Island county Humane
society heartily endorses the idea of
building a new jailiand It has caused
the following resolution to be sent
to the men who are circulating the
petitions for signatures.
"Whereas. There is a disposition
on the part of the county officials
and citizens generally, favorable to
the erection, of a new county jail,
"Whereas. The condition of the
present jail is such as will not meet
the requirements of the purposes for
which it I sintended. therefore, be it
-"Resolved, That the Rock Island
Coiinty Humane society, in meeting
assembled, heartily endorses the ac
tions of the county officials and oth
er citizens Interested in this humane
movement, believing as it does, that
this betterment of conditions is an
absolute necessity and in harmony
with the work of the society, and be
"Resolved, That copies of these
resolutions be sent to the board of
supervisors, to the local press and
also be spread upon the minutes of
Mertu Ready Rrapoimr.
Supervisor S. R. Wright, who is
active in the promoting of the pro
posed improvement, stated today
that he is getting more enthusiastic
every day over the prospects of a
new building and at the same time
is finding considerable indignation
among citizens when they are told of
the present condition of the county
Jail. He says that the jail was
built over half a century ago and
that it was designed to accommodate
15 prisoners. Now it has to hold
from three to five times that num
ber all of the time and the result is
a very crowded and unsanitary con
dition. The board of supervisors
will meet in September and at that
time the petition will be presented.
It is believed that the move will
meet with little or no opposition on
the part of the board and that the
proposition will be placed upon the

The question which is now worrying
tho local dealers is where lsthe sup

less the trouble between the operators
and the miners is settled soon. Even
now there is a dearth of coal in the

often orders for coal have to be rofus

when informed that their order can

blame it on the local dealer, who s
powerless in the case.
Most of the supply for the factories!
ard the city waterworks plant comes
from the Indiana fields, where the
trouble between the miners and tue
owrers has been settled and the out
put is up to the standard. This is ex
cellent coal but comes higher than
that mined in Illinois, the increased
freightage also adding to the cost.
Even the consumers of anthracite

Wild Bill Case, who tried to again
perform on the mound for Davenport
Saturday and was again trimmed up,
disputed the authority of Manager Perl
Kolycross to release him Saturday
nipht. Case said he had been signed
by President Tearney and no one
horse manager could cut his suspend
ers. Doubtless by this time he has had
time to think matters over and the
Three-Eye will see no more of him.
Either President Tearney is not a very
good judge of ball players or he does
noi realize what a tight little league he
is the apex of.
Baseball at Monmouth, the weak sis
ter in the Central association, is in a
bad way. They are trying to sell boos
ter tickets to the fans and nobody Is
tcking much interest in the success of
the undertaking. It Is admitted that
the next few days spells the fate of
baseball in that city.
Former Three-Eye leaguers are the
batting starB of the Pacific coast
league. Cuthbert heads the lot with a
figure "of .833, Tennant stands third
with .289, Carlisle is well up with .273,
Howard Is next with .269 and Frank
Murphy has a mark of .265.
The Saginaw club in the South Mich
igan league, which has won two pen
nants, is so poorly supported this year
that the president announced the fran
