THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1011.
Licensed to Marry. Henry Reeee

Jailed for Bootlegging. Deputy U.
6. Marshal George E. Bldwell of Des
Moines arrived In Davenport Satur
day having In custody Albert Lintz
of Wellman, Iowa, whom he placed
in the Soott connty Jail to serve 60
days for bootlegging.
Iron Falls on Foot. Mrs. N. R. De
Vere, 828 Le Claire street, met with
a vary painful accident when she let
an It-pound flat iron fall upon her
foot, lacerating and crushing the
member considerably. It required
several stitches to bring the flesh to
gether. Six Auetrians Sentenced. When six
of the 11 Auetrians arrested two
weeks ago for participating In the
shooting and cutting affair which oc
curred at the corner of Second and
Rock Island streets, entered pleas
of guilty to the charge of being par
ties to an affray, sentences of 30
days each were Imposed upon them
by presiding Justice Phil Daum.
Those who- were sent to jail for a
month's respite were Steve Dejanitz,
Mike Svetszy, Mike Yokos, Tom Le
dacke, Simon Standakov and Loza
Kostig. Four of the men were
charged with assault with intent to
commit murder, which charge- car
ries with it a mailmum sentence of
"f years in the penitentiary. Be
fore the trial, this charge was dis
missed and that of participating in
an affray was substituted and on
this count the men pleaded guilty.
Dejanita and Svetezy are the two
men who were cut so badly and who
were In St. Luke's hospital for sev
eral days after the cutting. Mike
Yokos did the stabbing and was shot
in the shoulder by Tom Dedacke,
who probably averted a murder by
this act, as at the time of his firing
the 'shot. Yokos was Infuriated be
yond control and was making fast
work of carving his two fellow coun
trymen. Wife Threatens His Life, Fleeing

Agre"ntnt in Kpewh at Lincoln
Grand Rapids, Mich.. Feb. 13. The
election of United States senators by
direct vote of the people is favored by
former President Theodore Roosevelt.
In a Lincoln day speech here Saturday
night Colonel Roosevelt came out
squarely in favor of the movement.
"One of the policies upon which I
think the great majority of progres
sives are agreed Is that United Statea
senators should be elected by popular
vote." said Colonel Roosevelt. "The
constitution should, in my Judgment,
be. so amended as to provide for this."
ELECTORAL COl.I.KC.K, TOO.
The colonel also declared himself in
favor of abolishing the electoral coV
lege- in the flection of presidents. "Yet,"
he said, "while I believe in the selec
tion of senators by direct vote, I do
not favor any policy which wou)d take
away from the federal government one
particle which it now has as regards
the election of senators."
Colotiel Roosevelt in his address
also urged the adoption of the propos
ed reciprocity treaty with Canada.

"simpler in getting at odd corners of ob
