CAPTAIN W. A.
At a spirited meeting of the Tri
City Press club last night Captain
W. A. Rosenfield, president of the
Rock Island club, was awarded the
soft drink concession for the grid
Iron frolic on the steamer. Morning
Star, Friday evening of next week.
It was the most stormy and tumul
tuous session of the press club. Gus
Tegeler, one of the rival bidders,
who, after learning that the contract
had been given to Mr. Rosenfield,
charged the press club with slipping
him the double cross, and Mr. Ro
senfield with having bribed several
of the members. Mr. Tegeler was
summoned before the club for an ex
planation. "I entered this meeting
firmly convinced that I had been
Jobbed," he said. "Now I know it.
By what right has this man Rosen
field to sell soft drinks? For years
I have been the only recognized
authority In Rock Island county on
these liquids. I have made a life study
of pop, orangeade, orangine, soda
water, lemonade, bromo-seltzer, pe
runa, vimalt and sundaes."
As an explanation of the rejection
of Mr. Tegeler's proposal, the press
club members admitted that his bid
was the better one of the two and
for this reason greatly regretted the
necessity of turning It down. But they
had inside information which forced
them, much as it pained them to do
so. It had been tipped off to the
committee that Mr. Tegeler was pre
pared to substitute a number of
ringers, such as golden foam, sea.
foam, rubifoam and various other
foams, in order to create a demaud
and increase his sales. But the club
members felt they could not afford
to take a chance on his judgment.
They did not for a moment question
bis honesty of purpose and whatever
discrimination he would have made
they felt It would only have been
prompted in the interest of his
friends and not through any selfish
motives on his part.
Iu Justice to Mr. Tegeler it should
be stated that some of these friends
are members of the press club,7or
he lost the contract by one vote. It
was: Rosenfield, 17; Tegeler, 1G.
Other bidders for the soft drink
Thompson, dressed in lavender an-1
white, brought In a basket tied wKh
the colors and containing all sorts cl
lovely articles for a new home. Tlie
young ladies were invited to the din its
room where an elaborate lunch w.ik
served. This was also carried out ia
the wedding colors, the ice cream auJ
cake being in heart shapes. In the
center of the table was a little d'U
bride, all in dainty white, with a losg
train which was held by two smaller
dolls in pink. After the refreshments
there was a drawing contest in whicb
every one was to draw a picture of ha
bride and bridegroom and the bride
drew a picture of herself as others
would see her. The contest was ar
ranged by Mrs. Thompson. MiJ
Minnie Brady won the first prize and
Miss Regina O'Donnell the second.
TWO BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED

in honor of Miss Mary E. Simpson. At

Mr. Rosenfield requested the press
club committee to define the soft
drink privilege and he was accom
modated. "Do you mean to say that I can't
even sell hard water?"
He was g'ven a most emphatic
answer In tiie negative.
"This looks like a pretty soft prop
osition to me all the way through,"
said Mr. Rosenfield.
