TOWN HOLDS SUNDAY
Three Interesting Sessions Yesterday
in Methodist Church at
The Sunday school Institute of
Drury township was held yesterday

meyer. There was a discussion of

Jhere was speaking by Thomas Wat

Those present expressed a desire
for the street car parade through
Rock Island and Moline in prefer
ence to the march, which has been
the custom in former years. This is

"There's a Reason"
CITY FUNDS LOW;
Municipality Handicapped by
Refusal to Turn Over Col
lection by County.
LAW RULING IS AWAITED
This Is Not Expected Until October
Business Before Council
Because County Treasurer W. H.
Whiteside refuses to turn over to ths
city, the tax funds which were collect
ed for the city through his office, the
municipality is liable to run short of
fands within a short period. The
treasurer refuses to release the
money until the courts take final ac
tion in regard to the commission law,
under which the present city- officials,
were elected. In order to delay the
time when there shall be Insufficient
funds to properly conduct the city af
fairs M. T. Rudgren this morning pre
sented a resolution in which the coun
cil was instructed to curtail depart
ment employes to a minimum and to
purchase only such supplies as are
absolutely neoessary for the current
month. The resolution was adopted.
The only available funds consist of
the remainder of the money secured
from saloon licenses, and when th's
has been exhausted, the commission
will have nothing to draw from. Un
til the supreme court acts on the mat
ter and that will probably be in Octo
ber, the county treasurer will with
hold the tax funds from the city.
The forces at work at present on the
streets and alleys are above the mini
mum, but till the completion of the
work of cleaning the city in order to
safeguard the public health, the force
will not be reduced.
