THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY,
DECEMBER 2, 1910.
BROYLES WINS IN
Claims He Has Been Officially
Recdgnized by State Confer
ence Executive Board.
SECOND BAPTISTS' DISPUTE
Services Conducted at Parsonage on
Tenth Street Rev. Frank Iur
den Said to Have Lieft City-
Rev. R. A. Broyles makes the an
nouncement that he has been officially
recognized as pastor of the Second
Baptist church. Tenth street and Sixth
avenue, Rock Island, by the executive
board of the colored Baptist confer
ence of Illinois, which has just con
cluded a meeting . at Peoria. Rev.
Frank Durden, "who has been conduct
ing services at the Second Baptist
church here, and also claiming to be
the rightful pastor, has left the city,
according to Rev. Broyles. The latter
claims that no services have been hold
at the local church for two months.
"My people will continue holding
services at my home, 022 Tenth street."
Mr. Broyles said. '"There is still a di
vision in the congregation over the
pastorate question, but there are not
more than a half dozen who refuse
to join in the services conducted by
me. The whole difficulty has been due
to a misunderstanding, and I have
believed from the first that eventually
matters would adjust themselves, and
that we would proceed v- ith our Chris
tian duty as we should."
Itattle (iocs on Year.
Upwards of a year there has been
an internal strife in the Second Bap
tist congregation. Certain of the mem
bers were dissatisfied with Rev.
jBroyles and they called Rev. Durden
to succeed him. Mr. Broyles declined
"to abdicate, although he was prevent
ed holding services at the church. Mr,
.'TBroyles' friends remained loyal to him
'and would not attend Uie church so
jfjfong as he was denied his claimed
rights as pastor. Mr. Broyles carried
bis case to the state conference, and
now declares he has won the victory
;-that he has been coufident all along
Srvould be his.

"wrought up that injunction proceedings
.' were started in the circuir court, but
the petition was never heard, and

mayor TELLS OF
FACTS IN MIX
ON THE STREET
There have been so many distorted
rumors afloat concerning the encoun
ter between Mayor G. V. McCaskrin
and a stranger on Third avenue, the
other afternoon, that the facts, which
have not been made public authentic
ally until now, are due the public. The
Argus has received any number of in
quiries and the stories of eye witnesses
have differed so materially, while pub
lic officials have declined absolutely to
give any of the particulars, that it was
hoped the affair' would pass with as
little attention as possible.
Mayor McCaskrin, who up to last
evening refrained from discussing the
matter, stated the facts to a representa
tive of The Argus. He said: "The
facts are simply that a traveling man,
who gave his name as Fred Wright,
had conducted himself in an insulting
manner 'in the presence of a young
lady who Is employed in my office at
the city hall. When I learned of the
facts, I followed him out of the city
hall across Third avenue and thrashed
him for his misconduct. I did not
have my eyes blackened in the mixup,
but sustained a bruise on the side of
my face by striking it on the curb as
we fell in a clinch. The other fellow
! bears the best evidence of who fared
the worse in the encounter. As far as
the guilt is concerned, Wright plead
guilty to disorderly conduct in the po
lice court and was fined $2 and costs,
which he gladly paid and went his
"I did no more than any other man
would have done who had learned
that a-young lady had been insulted. I
would do the same thing in the case
of any young woman in the city if I
heard that a ruffian had offended her."

ing that any move with such a ton'ien
cy -ould be fatal to the plan. Major

is that .in view of the agitation for

conj.icted by a single commission,
whereas the indications are that at the
next election there will be two com
