hands to her head thla morning and
would have fallen to the floor of the
Rock Island county jail but for as
sistance. The mother, accompanied
by Mrs. Sarah Schneider of Daven
port, an aunt of the girl, upon
learning that Eagle Eye was in cus
tody here, came to Sheriff Bruner
with the request that they be per
mitted to look at the monster. The
ladles were admitted to the jail and
Eagle Eye summoned. The man did
not know that he was confronted by
the mother of his girl companion.
The sheriff then got Eagle Eye to
talk by leading him to believe that
he (Eagle Eye) was wanted as a wit
ness against the girl.

Mrs. Hurst, who is a frail little
woman, is broken hearted at the
downfall of her little girl, but Mrs.
Schneider Is more positive in her
stand and with fire flashing from her
brown eyes, said, "Oh, if I could just
get my hands on that man. If I had
a gun I would shoot him."
The public is familiar with the
story of the disappearance of the
Hurst girl from her grandparents'
home in Davenport. She was ar
rested in Cedar Rapids Nov. 24 for
rorgmg a cneck for 2l and upon
confessing ner real name, tbe po

informing her that her daughter had
been found, after she had been lost
for six weeks, during which time her
picture and description had been
sent all over the United States and

When interviewed by an Argus
reporter this morning, Mrs. Hurst
had the following to say, "Georgia,
who is but 14 years old, was raised
in Hamburg, where we live, and has
naa tne best or training. I never
let her go with the boys, because she
was too young. She had always been
a good girl at home. About the first
of September, we sent her to the
home of her grandparents, Mr. and
Mrs. George B. Vollnjer of Daven
port, to attend school there this win

had staid there, if they were mar

"She sought refuge at a private
home and the lady took her in
where she remained in hiding for
several days. Eagle Eye tiring of
the search, then came to Rock Is

Eye stole things from the hotels and
then tried to place the guilt on
Georgia. Georgia gave a locket and

this was stolen by Eagle Eye, who

SATURDAY A HOODOO
FOR EXPRESS DRIVER
Ed Glynn of Davenport Thinks Last
Day of Week Has It All Over
Friday for Bad Luck.
Ed Glynn, who drives wagon No. 1
for Ewart & Rich ter of Davenport is
under the impression that when it
comes to hard luck Saturday has gol
it all over Friday.
This morning he started to drive
his team over to the Rock Island
side and had just reached Second
and Iowa streets when the mule on
the left side slipped and fell to the
pavement, tearing up the harness
considerably and delaying the trip
for about 20 minutes.
At 9:30 his team had reached the
corner or Nineteenth street ana
Third avenue, Rock Island, when
this same mule's feet shot out from
under it, precipitating it in the middle of
the car track. More damage to the
harness, more delay and lots of
grief. When asked if sharp shoes
might not remedy the trouble, Glynn
replied, "It is not the shoes, Satur
day is my unlucky day, that's all."

A largely attended meeting was held
last night at Temple Emanuel in Dav
enport, and the phases of the treaty
between this country and Russia which'
allows Russia to discriminate against
American Jews, Protestant missionar
ies, and Catholic priests, was discussed
at considerable length.
Samuel Strauss of Rock Island read
a carefully prepared, logical article. In
which he outlined the whole situation -thoroughly.
He 'told of the fact that
the present treaty existing between the
two countries was formulated 80 years
ago and that since that time Russia
has put constructions on its interpreta
tion which were not looked for at the
time. Under these, Russia has refus
ed admittance to Jewish-American cit
izens, Protestant missionaries, and
WANT NEW TREATY MADE.
The United States has failed to take
official notice of the affront cast not
only on the Jews, but on the nation as
well, and the Jews all over the coun
try are protesting and aiding In a
movement which will result In the ab
rogation of the treaty and the framing
of a new one. They say that the very
first amendment to the constitution of
the United States has no meaning if
the rights of Jewish citizens are not
respected abroad the same as other
Preceding Mr. Strauss, Bishop T. N.
Morrison of the Episcopal diocese of
Davenport spoke in sympathy of the
movement of the Jews and expressed
himself as heartily in accord with
their desire to have a new treaty
framed. Rev. R. E. Ramsey of the
Unitarian church In Davenport spoke
briefly along similar lines.
