THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. WEDNESDAY, APRJIJ 26- 1911
HIS GOODS HELD
Groceries Valued at $500 in
Hands of Illinois Food In
FARMERS ARE VICTIMIZED
Residents of Lower End of County
Had Threatened Application
of Tar and Feathen.
Resident of the lower end of KoCk
Island county, including Milan, Rey
nolds and Taylor Ridge, were caved
from -what appear to have been a
bold flim-flam game, through the ef
forts of one of the merchants of Tay
lor Ridge, who, learning of the pro
posed delivery of groceries which
were not up to the standard, notified
the state food Inspectors. The re
sult was that a quantity of goods,
valued at $500, was seized yesterday
at the Milan depot for Inspection, and
probably for analysis. Assistant Com
missioner John B. Newman of Chicago
was sent to Milan and he has returned
to Chicago with a portion of the goods.
More than a year ago man who
claimed that his name was M. A. La
throp, and representing that he was
the principal owner of a wholesale
grocery firm in Peoria, started opera
tions in the lower end of the county.
He sold goods to a few of the resi
dents, and then suspended operations
till a few months ago, when he re
turned and made a thorough canvass
of all of the farms throughout the
district. For recommendations he
had the people call the farmers to
whom he had sold goods a year ago.
Of course everything about the first
transaction was up to the standard.
A carload of goods came to Rey
nolds and was delivered. The state
officials had been warned, bat they
arrived a day after the goods had
been distributed. The bill amounted
to $3,000. It is claimed that the Qual
ity of the articles Is below standard,
and on most of the goods there was
no label, though the law requires one.
Lathrop managed to collect for tne
larger amount of the goods before
delivery, offering as an inducement for
immediate payment a X per cent dis
count. The goods which had been delivered
at the Milan depot arrived Sunday,
and Inspectors Blaisdell and Peterson
were on hand at the time. No agents
showed up at that time and so the
goods were seized.
The stock department of state food
inepection has been after this man
Lathrop for five years, aooording to
one of the inspectors. They have
been unable to catch him at any vio
lation of the law, but it seems that
in this instance they have conclusive
evidence of his guilt. He baa disap
peared. ARTICI.KS SOT DESCRIBED.
In making out his bills Lathrop uses
numbers for his descriptions and pats
down the amount and the number of
articles to be delivered. In this way
there was no description of the article
furnished the purchaser and the agent
is at liberty to send what he wishes.
The delivery of goods at Reynolds
so incensed purchasers that laBt week
a number of them planned to use vio
lent methods In ridding themselves of
Lathrop aod his mail order business.
They even talked of tar and feathers,
but before they had ad opportunity to
carry out these measures Lathrop had
been warned and had left the com
munity. MUSCATINE QUIET;

CUT IN EXPENSES
No Longer Need for Payment
of Fee to Constable for Ta

SAVES $60 EACH MONTH
Amount Has Been Coining Out
County Treasury Because of
Lack of Police Chief.
The practice of having a constable
take prisoners from the city police sta

prisoners In the custody of regular po
lice officers and with a writ from James
W. Brinn, chief of police, will be re

der the previous administration, which"
bad no active chief of police, the sheriff
had refused to accept prisoners unless
they were delivered to him by a con
stable, and as a result it was costing
tne county an avtrag w
for the payment of constables' fees in-
curred in this way.
Each man taken
to the county jail by a constable was
worth CO cents to the constable, and it
was a caBe of commit the prisoner in
that way or not at all.
CHIEF MIST SIGN.
Under the law a police officer could
not have taken the prisoners to the
Jail because there was no chief to sign
the proper papers. While it did not
cost the city anything directly, the tax
payers were hit. nevertheless, for their
share cf the additional $"' a month

Crazed by excessive drinking, two
strangers in the city cut up capers last
night that came near sending both to
prison for lor.g terms. William White
ly of Springfield, Ohio, where he is
well known as an implement dealer
and Inventor and a man of excellent
character, drew a knife and threatened
to kill a bartender. Whitely had been
to Davenport on business during the
afternoon, and he returned to tliis city
about supper time. Before coming he
took several drinks, and after supper
he went to the Harms hotel bar.
He insisted upon shaking hands with
the Harms bartender, Herman Peter
son, and when the two clasped hands,
Whitely gave a jerk and tried to pull
Peterson over the counter. A scuffle
ensued, and men outside the bar man-

M. A. Maxey of Murphy, Ky., was the
other who was put to the bad by the

the 2C00 saloon on Fifth avenue, and
finally repaired to a closet. A few min
utes later a shot was fired through a
door, apd the bullet narrowly missed a
patron of Jbe saloon. The bartender
and others present tried to get into the

T. J. Lamping of Moline, testifying
in his own behalf today in the Unit
ed States district court, where he is
on trial for an alleged attempt to ex
tort $33,000 from William Butter

the defendant to Mr. and Mrs. But
terworth were offered in evidence.
The doctor made use of the Latin
words "rigor mortis," but he testi
fied that he had in mind Mr. Butter
worth's heart when he penned them.
The point, he stated, that he wished
to convey in the leters was that Mr.
Butterworth's heart was dead to all
sense of justice. Lamping held that
Butterworth was responsible for his
arrest and prosecution for an alleg
ed violation of the Moline health or
dinance through his failure to re
port a patient suffering with a con
tagious disease that he had trans
ferred to the city hospital. Butter

O. L. Dickeson has been appointed
vice president with jurisdiction over
all departments, both freight and pas

railrol, effective May 1, with head

eson is perhaps the youngest raiTroad
man in America who holds such a
responsible position. For the past
several years, while his official title
with tho Burlington railroad has been
special inspector of transportation, he
has in reality been the direct repre
sentative and spokesman of the presi
dents of the western railroads. Mr.
Dickeson took a prominent part in
the hearings between thiie interstate
commerce commission and the rail
roads and was perhaps one of, the
most important witnesses before that
body. He is 31 years of age. He was

business course and was Riven a

I Burlington & Qtiiney. Tjvo years
Mater he was promoted to the position
of chief clerk of that department,
which is another demonstration of his
ability in reaching tho top in the of
fice in which he was employed. In
1905 he was appointed superintendent
over freight and pastsenger transpor

FOR JUNE OUTING
Tri-City Press Club to Charter
Morning Star to Carry
BE GET-TOGETHER AFFAIR
Karii Organization to lie Asked to
Designate Speaker Woodworth
Cluni to Head Program Given.
The Morning Star, the palatial new
steamer of the Northern line, of which
Captain Walter A. Blair is master, ia
to be chartered for the get-together
outing of the Tri-City Press club In
June. At the monthly meeting of the
press club, held last night at the New
Harper, a committee appointed In
March reported terms that had been
obtained from Captain Blair, and was
instructed to close a contract for the
use of the steamer.
The plan is to bring, the business and
professional men of tho trl-cities to
gether for a trip on tho river, the boat
leaving about 6 In the evening and re
turning before midnight. There will
be music on board, and lunch will be
served to thoBe who desire it. All ex
penses will be covered In tlie ticket
charge. Woodworth Clum, secretary
of the Greater Davenport committee,
has been invited by the press club to
lead the short speaking program, and
each of the commercial bodies in Rock
Island and Moline "will be asked to
designate a member to contribute a
talk. The idea advanced by the press
club is meeting with general favor
over the three cities, and doubtless
there will be a big turnout on the trip.
HAS t tlMf lTV OK 2,000.
The Morning Star has a capacity of
2,000 passengers. The steamer is a
j side-whceler, and until this season has
' confined its operations to southern
; waters. The boat wan purchased at
; Paducah, Ky., by Captain Blair arid
has been treated to a complete over
i hauling during the past winter at tho
; Kahlke yards in this city.
Th' Morning Star will carry a party
