proprietors of the Diamond and Turf
gambling houses, charging them with
larceny and malicious mischief, the

Schmid and Hauberg asked for a
change of venue, and it was granted.
The cases now go before Police Mag
istrate C. J. Smith, and he has fixed
tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock as the
time for the hearing. State's Attor
ney I"M. Magill had requested a dis
missal of the charges by Justice Nis
sen, but he refused to recognize the
authority of the state prosecutor, set-1
ting a new precedent in the annals of ;
Rock Island county criminal history.
Warrant Prevent Destruction.
It was Constable Schmid who serv
ed the search warrant, issued by Jus
tice J. H. Cleland, -upon the gambling
houses. Mr. Hauberg assisted in the
raids. The gambling fixtures were
carted to the levee and were to be de
stroyed by fire, an order to that effect
having been given by Justice Cleland.
In the interim, anticipating the proba
ble purpose of the constable, the
Schaum brothers obtained warrants,
charging larceny and malicious mis
chief from the court of Justice Nissen,
directed against Messrs. Schmid and
Hauberg, and they were both placed
under arrest, giving bonds for their
appearance when wanted for trial.

In the interim the Schaum brothers,
as well as H. E. McBride, the latter

Joseph Santo, 2S, a buttoncutter, in
attempting to board a westbound
freight on the Rock Island road at
Fifth and Taylor streets, Davenport,
at 7 o'clock this morning, missed the
hold he grabbed for, fell under the
wheels and was so seriously injured
that he died at noon at St. Luke's

Santo and a friend, LeRoy Johnson,
had 'decided to go to Muscatine in
search of employment at their trade as
buttoncutters. When they stopped at
the Davenport crossing to wait for the
I oncoming train Johnson remarked ho
thought the train was moving too fast
for them to attempt to board it.
Warning; Not Heeded.
As it whizzed by he warned Santo
not to try, but the latter gave no heed.

NEW GARS ARRIVE
Two of Pay-as-you-enter De
livered to Tri-City Rail
SEAT BUT 42 PASSENGERS
Wider Aisles Are Provided Heated !
With Klectricity Conductor j
Yesterday afternoon a shipment of
two of the pay-as-you-enter cars was
received at the East River street, Dav
enport, barn of the Tri-City Railway
company. One of the cars was un
loaded this morning and was brought
over to the street car barn at Thirty
fifth street and Fifth avenue, this city,
and placed in the shop there to re
ceive some finishing touches. The
other is being unloaded today and will
possibly be brought over this evening
or tomorrow morning. The car?,
which are the output of the Cincinnati
Car Builder company of Cincinnati, are
45 feet in length, or a little more than
four feet longer than the old "200"
cars which have been in service for
some time. The platforms are six feet
in length, two feet longer than the old
cars. The inside measurement is six
inches more than that of the old cars.
But 42 people can be seated, whereas
41 can be seated in the others. The
cars will be heated with electricity,
and instead of the old battery bell used
by the passenger to notify the motor
man when to stop, there will be bells
of the push-button type connected di
rectly with the power through the trol
ley pole. No more of ringing of bell3
when the cars are at a halt for want
of power. The "400" cars, the number
of the pay-as-you-enters, are of the
same color as the Fourth avenue cars.
The inside woodwork is of quarter
sawed oak. The aisles are 25 inches
in width, whereas those of the old cars
are but 16 inches in width.
Two Entrance at Rftch End.
The entrance to the cars, of course, is
entirely different from that of the oth
er cars. In fact there are two entranc
es at each end. One of these will be
opened when a passenger wishes to
board the car. The conductor will be
in a small enclosure and will be able
to take the fares as the passesger
steps on the car. The entrance door
consists of a combination of three
panels which fold as the door is open
ed. The door on the opposite side Is
opened and closed by means of a lever.
There are two entrances upon either
side leading from the platform into
the seating room of the car. This will
aid when there is a large number of
people entering and leaving the car.
The entrances and exits re plainly
marked so that there will be no diffl
culty in determining which door to
enter or to leave. The motormen and
conductors will both be shut off from
the passengers with small rail en
Persons wishing to board the car
will be notified that they must pay as
they enter by a sign painted in red let
ters on either end of the car.

dirty about his person that he was
sickening to look upon. He was -sent
to the county jail this morning for a
stay of 40 days. Magistrate C. J.

nearly that length of time to clean the
fellow up again. Tyman went down
for 15 days. Both were advised that
they should get out of the city upon
being released from jail.
Mrs. Minnie A. Reading, 2519 Eighth
avenue, has received the sad intelli
gence that her cousin, Allen Thomas,
had died suddenly last Tuesday at his
home in Ashland, Ohio. An Ashland
newspaper contained the following ac
count of the death;
"Ashland people were shocked this
Wednesday morning to learn that
Allen Thomas of Cottage street, mem
ber of the lumber firm of Thomas,
Myers & Wolf, director of the Ashland
Steel Range & Manufacturing com
pany, member of the official board of
the Methodist Episcopal church, and
one of the town's mo6t influential cit
izens, had dropped dead at 10 o'clock
last night. Mr. Thomas attended a
meeting of the board of directors of
the Ashland Steel & Manufacturing
company earlier in the evening and
seemed to be in his usual good health.
After the meeting adjourned he, with
C. W. Landis and Fremont Masters,
went to the Reliable Match company's
plant to look at one of the company's
new machines. While in the act of
stooping over to look under the ma
chine, he fell forward to the floor.
His companions, thinking he had drop
ped his eyeglasses, thought nothing
about it for a moment, but when he
made no attempt to rise, they hastily
assisted him to-his feet and carried
him to a window, where he could get
fresh air. He breathed a half dozen
times and expired without a word. Mr.
Thomas had not offered a single com
plaint during the evening and his sud
den death without a word of warning
came as a great shock to his compan
ions. Gilbert's ambulance was called
and the body taken to the Thomas
home. Mr. Thomas was a splendid
specimen of physical manhood and
looked the picture of health. He was a
man of good habits and led an exem
plary life in every respect, standing
high in business, church and social

There is more catarrh in this sec

eases put together, and until the last
tew years was supposed to be incur
able. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced It incurable. Science
has proven catarrh to be a constitu
tional disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca

POLICE IN BATTLE
WITH CAR THIEVES
Shots Exchanged by Officers
and Quartet of Crooks in
West End "of City.
ONE OF LATTER WOUNDED
AH Escape, but Number of Suspects
Have Ueen Arrested in Effort to
Kun lk wn Others.
A regular pitched battle between
police officers Und box car burglars
occurred about midnight last night
in the west end of. the city. About
two score shots were fired and it is
believed that one of the robbers was
wounded, although there is nothing
certain about it. The police have
gathered in a number of suspicious
characters and it is believed that one
or more of them will be able to tell
the officers who acted the role of
bandits. The battle took place along
the switch track which runs west of
the Standard Table Oil Cloth works
to the plant of the Twin-City Ren
dering company. About 11:30 the
police department received a tele
phone call from Charles W. Krue
ger, one of the officers of the ren
dering company, telling them that
several men had broken into a car
standing on the siding and were busy
stealing hides which were being
shipped by the company to another
Light Rrvrali Four.
Officers Dennis Bennett and C. C.
Church were dispatched to the scene
in the police buggy. When they got
there, they found Krueger under the
car and his son hiding in a ditch
nearby. Bennett alighted from the
rig and walked to the car door,
which had been opened after the seal
had been broken. The officer flashed
an electric light into the car and
found himsejf staring into the muz
zles of three revolvers and a rifle.
The four men who were behind them
were lined up against the rear of
the car. Bennett cut off his light
instantly and retreated before draw
ing a shot. Church approached and
was warned not to use his light. At
this instant one of the four men
from the car appeared at the door
and Bennett blazed away at him with
his automatic. The shot frightened
the horse which was hitched to the
police buggy and it ran away with
Officer Church in it, leaving Ben
nett to face the four men. A pitch
ed battle soon followed, the four
bandits firing shot after shot in the
direction of Bennett, who lay hid
den in a ditch alongside the road.
He did not return the fire and soon
it ceased. The robbers then escap
ed through the door on the oppo
site side of the car and made their
way up the road. Bennett saw them
very dimly as they crossed the road
to get into the ditch in which he
was hiding and although he was
nearly 100 feet distant from them
he emptied his automatic at them.
1 Reinforcement Called.
When the noise had ceased. Ben-J
nett could hear muttered implica
tions and amcng other things a
vbice said. "Leave him lie there.
Bennett believes he shot one of the
fallows, "although an investigation
conducted later on when Church had
Returned failed to find the man. His
cap lay in the ditch, however. The
officer at once telephoned Into head
quarters for reinforcements and sev
eral additional officers went to the
'scene of the trouble after securing
a riot gun at the sheriff's office. But
the four bandits had effectually made
their getaway and nothing more was
seen of them.
Several years ago a car at the
same point was entered and a con
siderable quantity of hides was stol
en. The officers of the company
were on the lookout for another at
tempt and they detected the men at
the job, but were unable to capture
