. Little brotherly love and affection
is passing between Charles and John
Smith, one of whom, it is claimed is
responsible for the fraured Jaw
sustained last night by Eva Brown,
303 Twenty-second street, In a fra
cas which had Its incipiency when
the brothers were ordered out of the
house. There was a fusllade of beer
bottles and while one was hurtling
through the air It came In contact
with the Jaw of Miss Brown with
serious results. She was given med
ical attention, her Jaw was wired
and she Is In St. Anthony's hospital
today as a result.
EACH BLAMES OTHER.
The Smith brothers were pinched
last night by Captain Reynolds and
Officer Kinney at 8:30 shortly after
the scrap. This morning, when ask
ed which was the guilty party, each
claimed that the other was "It" and
It will require something more than
the story of either to straighten out
the tangle. However, there werei
several other women about at the
time and they are in a position to
identify the guilty party.
Miss Brown Is the same woman
who had trouble with Frank Beliel
of Davenport who was yesterday
bound over to the grand Jury on a
charge of larceny of $47 from her.
The money was taken, it Is claimed,
The hearing of the Smith brothers
was held this afternoon at 2 o'clock
before Magistrate Smith.

peared at the Moline police station
this morning and handed to the chief
a iote in which he confessed to hav
ing set afire-two barns in Moline some
four years ago. Shortly after that he

would not be open to him till he made
retribution for his wrong-doing,
Thereupon he came to Moline and con
fessed. He said that a hobo negro

while the conflagration was In prog
ress he would rob some houses. He
never saw his companion in crime

Axel went on his way after he had
been pushed a little by the fist of
Officer Johnson and started to ped
dle a plausible story as to where and
how and why he had sustained a dis

sent him to the police station to
lodge a complaint. On the way he
bucked into Officer Pearson and that
