After devoting the greater part
of the morning to committee work,
the board of supervisors convened
yesterday afternoon arid spent the
remainder of the day in listening to
reports. These were In the regu
lar line of county business and were
from the following committees: ad
vertising, poor claims and fees and
salaries. The reports included a
number of bills which for the most
part were allowed there being but
one rejected, although several were
referred back to committees. As the
result of the large number of bills
presented by Ex-Sheriff Edward Kit
tilsen. a motion was made by Super
visor Wright that in the future all
county officials present their bills at
the end of each half year instead of
waiting until their terms of office
had expired. This motion was car
ried. Upon motion of Supervisor
Eastman the county clerk was in
structed to notify the coroner that
in the future the county will not
pay bills coming from reporters who
take down testimony at inquests.
At the meeting of the board this
morning the action of the board in
allowing a number of bills from Ex
Sheriff Kittilsen was reconsidered
and the bills were referred back to
the committee on fees and salaries
with orders to investigate and re
port. F. B. Wylie, steward of the
county infirmary, appeared and fur
nished his bonds, which were ac
cepted. IN FAVOR OF SLOGAN IDEA
Rock Island Booster Sends in Some
Rock Island, 111., Dec. 8. Editor Ar
gus: Your suggestion that we adopt
an advertising slogan here in Rock Is
land is an excellent one. . Why not the
Rock Island Industrial commission
get 3 hustle and begin a contest such
as has just ended in Davenport? The
Greater Davenport committee, as I
undc-rttand it, offered a cash prize of
$25 for the best slogan suggested. It
received over 4,000, and they came
from cities all over the land. We
would want such a slogan as would
forcibly put our advantages as a city
in tho fewest possible -words, the same
to be printed on all stationery used by
the industrial commission and by the
business houses of the community.
What we want are a few words em
bracing the name of Rock Island that
will cause people to think when they
read them. I'm not much of a hand
at this kind of business, but I have a
few rlogan ideas that I am going to
put down. Here they are:
"Rock Island Has 'Xever Stopped
Growing in 60 Years.
"Yo,i and Your Business Will Make
Good in Rock Island."

IN COUNTY FUNDS
Retiring Treasurer Has $1,013
Which He Cannot Account
In looking over the books of the
retiring county treasurer, P. F. Cox, j
the finance committee of the county i
board discovered yesterday after-i
noon that there is an exesrt of j
$1,913 in the treasury which is not
shown on the books. Mr. Cox states!
that the money is not his and that j
it belongs to the county, although
he is unable to show how he came
by it. Its presence is quite a mys
tery and the finance committee has
gone over the bookf? carefully to
find out if there Is not a mistake
somewhere, but thus far it has not
been discovered. The board is con
sidering employing an expert ac
countant to examine the books.
INDIAN WAR SURVIVORS
Effort to Gain Government Recogni
tion for Tlieni.
To all survivors of Indian wars:
We desire to obtain the addresses
of all those who served on the fron
tier against hostile Indians in the
United States and volunteer service
from the close of the civil war un
til 1883, in order that their names
may be placed on the books of the
N. I. W. V. association, so that they
may benefit by the act now pending
before congress, as soon as it be
comes a law. The National War Vet
erans, organized for the purpose of
procuring pensions for its members,
have sent two of its order, the na
tional commander, Henry Hegwer,
and the national secetary. C. R.
Hauser. to Washington, D. C, there
to inaugurate a vigorous campaign
for the purpose of accomplishing
this object. Those brave and noble
soldiers who so valiantly defended
and protected the western frontier
in the early days, making it possible
for this generation to develop Its
unlimited resources and to live in
peace and prosperity, are surely en
titled to the same recognition that
i ii 1 1 I ! ml n i iTi r

survivors of other wars.
