has a force of men at work on the
route that is to complete the Long

as they did yesterday and as long
as there is no freeze over, they will
be kept on the lob. They will be at
work on the surface excavations for
at least three weeks and possibly a
month. That period of time will be
necessary before it will be possible
to start the steamshovel on its In

THUGS ASSAULT GIRL
AND TAKE P0CKETB00K
Alice Herbecke, 816 Main street,
Davenport, was assaulted and held up
shortly after 8 o'clock last night while
walking on Eighth street between
Main and Brady. The assailants got
away with her pocketbook containing
$1.60 and several lodge receipt books.
It is believed that the thugs thought
she had a large sum of the lodge's
money with her. She was taken to
St. Luke's hospital, but she was not
badly injured and was later removed
to her home.
Acting upon the evidence that has
been presented from time to time in
the various justice courts of Rock Is

to Twenty-seventh streets have
begun a crusade against conditions ex
isting in the territory bounded by the
same streets and north of Fifth avenue.
It is a well known fast that this par
ticular neighborhood has been the
scene of dozens of holdups, most of
which have been traced to negresses
residing in that neighborhood. Men
awaiting cars on the avenue, or men
whose business leads them into this
district, have been objects for the at
tacks of the negresses, and the neigh
borhood has come to be looked upon
as one wherein lurks danger for all
those; who intrude after dark.

This morning in police court, when
one of these cases was scheduled for
hearing, one of the prominent resi
dents of the section involved, acting
on behalf of other residents, was pre
pared to put their position before the
court and to show that existing condi
tions will not be longer tolerated and
tbat these things must cease. He said
to an Argus representative: "No long
er will any one come to our homes at
night if they must come in the street
car and walk even half a block. They
have told us their reasons, and we can
not blame them. When we go away
from our homes, we are subject to
the same thing, and are running a
chance every time we go out after
night. "We Intend to stop this thing,

As a token of appreciation for the

to elope with him, and gathering to
