and First and Eighth avenues. The
secretary of the board of local im

er MartTls T. Rudgren this morning
pave several reasons why he was op
posed to granting the ordinance as
the petitioners ask. Four days after
the said promoters had filed the peti
tion calling for an election on the mat
ter of the Central Union Telephone
company ordinance, they filed the pe
tition asking the council to pass an
ordinance which would allow them to
construct and maintain a telephone
system in Rock Island for a period of
50 year. The petition asked that
either the ordinance be granted in Us
present form or referred to a vote of
(AU S IT PROMOTER V SCHEME.
Necessarily the petition will have to
lay over Z days in the clerk's office,
unless the commission takes favorable
action on it, which hardly seems like-!
ly. The franchise fails to state a '
specified time for beginning the work j
and its completion. Therefore, after ;
Commissioner Rudgren had read thej
document to the commission, he gave'
five reasons tor opposing its passage, i
First he objected to the length of the
life of the franchise, and urged that j
20 years be the life, if it be granted, j
Second, no time Is specified for begin
ning and completion of the plant. ,
Third, that It is an attempt of a bunch :
of promoters to obtain rights which
they wish to sell to Wall street or oth-1
er capitalists. Fourth, that there is j
no guarantee. Fifth, that they should ,
complete the plant in five years and;
file a bond of ?1,0"". to be forfeited
rniess the work is completed.
Commibsioner Rudgren asserted
that the ordinance is not identified
with any one and no one know what
it is worth. He? declared that it la
simply a promoters' scheme.

upon his own life yesterday afternoon
at 2 o'clock in the Edmond Verbiest

the woman lies at St. Anthony's hos

shots having taken effect in her bod-.
One entered above the heart and the
others on the right side of the abdo

lodged against the spine. The lower
parts of the body are paralized as a re

time till death will overcome her. The
man, confessing his guilt, has been
held under bonds of $5,000 by the po

The quarrel which ended so tragi
cally had its incipiency Saturday night
when Beernaert came down from his,
home in Moline to visit Miss Puma.
She seemed distant, he states, and her
tolerance of the attentions of other
men incited his jealousy. He so in
formed her and asked her to cease re
ceiving their attentions. The difllculty
was amicably settled and Beernaert
remained at the Verbiest residence till
after the shooting yesterday after
noon. While the pair was alone in
