Because the constitution of the Rock
Island liquor Dealers association
says that the association shall not sup
port a member of the association who is
guilty of violating the laws of the city or j
of the state, the association, it Is con-
tended, met yesterday afternoon, anfl
though the meeting was not properly
called, gave opinion as being against A .
W. Blllburg and others whose licenses
have baen revoked by the city officials,
and further sustained the city admin
istration In Its stand on the matter. It
is understood that the meeting was
called by Blllburg and bis henchmen
for the purpose of securing funds from
the association to fight his cases
wherein the city and state have
charges against him.
MATTER 14 AIRED.
But for whatever purpose the meet
ing was called, the manner of the call
ing was against the constitution of
the organization. The president did
not put bis stamp of authority on it,
and it was not published properly.
Hut thoe who gathered Insisted that
the matter for which it waa convened
te aired at least.
There was a discussion, and though
the vote was not polled on the matter,
the consensus of opinion was ten to
one in favor of tbe city administra
tion. In other words, the association
gave Blllburg and the others a black
eye by acting In accordance with tbe
rules of the constitution, which says
that the wrongs and violations of the
saloon man shall not be upheld by
the organization. Just as the meeting
was about to break up, Blllburg,
with John Looney, his attor
ney, entered the Turner hall,
where the meeting was held. Looney
addressed the meeting. Before he had
finished, most of tbe saloon men had
gone. Eight remained. Those who
went said this morning that they will
not tolerate any action whose tendon

The chairman of the meeting stayed
till the end and then called for a mo
tion to adjourn. A call was framed for
a meeting tomorrow aiiernocm at 2
o'clock, and it la expee'ed that the as
sociation will have i'.s own attorneys
The men who desire th? support of
the association declare that the mayor
has no right to revoke a license, and
that such power is like unto that of
the czar of Russia. They claim the
right to trial. The other element
state that they do not Intend to mix
a finger in It and carry the fight into

hold the action of the mayor.

Has Arm Amputated.
Henry Odendahl, aged 23, and re
siding on the Colona road about
mile and a half out of Moline suf
fered an injury to his left arm this
morning which resulted in the am
putation of that member below the
elbow. He caught his hand in a
shredder at which he was working
and before the machine, which was
run by a gasoline engine, could be
stopped, bis arm had bean dragged
into it. He was brought to Moline
where the Amputation occurred.
Death by diphtheria claimed little
Florence Armstrong, year-and-a-half
old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie
Armstrong, 709 Fourth street, at 10
o'clock this morning. The child was
! taken ill a week ago but till last
night it was not suspected that Bhe
was suffering with diphtheria when
it was learned that it had reached a
virulent stage. The first physician
there last evening believed that the
case had progressed too far to allow
the use of antitoxin while the second
who was called administered the drug.
Because of the fact that the case waa
not diagnosed as diphtheria the house
waa not Quarantined until this morn
ing after notice was taken to Dr. G. G.
Craig, city health commmissioner, by
Mrs. Barker of the "West End Settle
Dr. Craie is inclined to think that
the case is one for investigation inas
much as no report of it had been
made to him;
DOCTOR TELLS STORY. .
The first doctor who was called In
this particular case says that he waa
called last Thursday and then found
that tbe mother and a child, one of
seven In the family, were suffering
from a. very mild attack of tonsilltis.
He detected a loose, white covering
over the throat and that he treated
and removed -with cotton without caus
ing any irritation or loss of blood.
That led him to think that all would
be well. He returned the next day
and mother and child were up and
about, apparently none the worse for
the alight attack. Sunday he visited
the home and the baby was lying on
the bed. Its face was turned toward
the pillows. The doctor thought that
its breathing was heavy and asked
the mother to lift the child over. But
she said the heavy breathing was
caused by the child's position. The
doctor thought no more of the matter.
CALLED LAST WIGHT.
Late last night he was called and
found that the attack had developed
quickly Into membraneous croup or
diphtheria and that the case had
reached stages that would hardly
warrant of the administering of anti
toxin. He did what he could and
said he would return this morning.
At 12:30 another doctor was called,
administered antitoxin and removed
the membrane. Death occurred this
morning. Both physicians advised the
family to remain In doors and not
allow any one in the home. In other
words, they advised quarantine though
too late to put the case through its
CASE DEVELOPS QUICKLY.
With these facts from the physi
cians it is hardly probable that any
effort will be made to fix the blame
ucon them. The presence of the
germs of the disease in the home and
the squalor of the home developed the
case very quickly and before physi
cians had time to act death resulted.
Burial of the child occurred this
afternoon at Chippiannock cemetery.

CHANGE OF VENUE
Judge E. C. Graves yesterday after
noon granted a change of venue to
A W. Billburg in the case in which
the city is seeking to have the circuit
court enjoin the defendant from con
tinuing to operate his saloon and chop
suey house on Twentieth street. At
torneys Kenworthy & Kenworthy and
John Looney for the defendant pre
pared an affidavit to the effect that
they believed Judge Graves prejudiced
against them and asked that the hear
ing of the city's petition be given
into the hands of one of the other
Judges of this city. The granting of
the request means that either Judge
W. H. Gest or Judge F. D. Ramsay
will hear the petition. The date has
not been set but an attempt will be
made to get Judge Ramsay here by
Thursday so that be can hear both
the petition for injunction and the
evidence in the quo warranto proceed
ings filed by the city against the same
GETS ANOTHER CHANGE.
A. W. Billburg asked for a change
of venue this morning from the court
of Justice C. J Schweler where a
charge of gambling was preferred
against him subsequent to the raid
on his Joint ten days ago. The case
was sent to the court of Justice w.
F. Schroeder, but he waa indisposed
this morning and refused to take it.
The court of Justice P. H. W'ells be
ing next nearest, the transcripts were
taken lack and changed accordingly.
Justice Wells was inclined to think
that Justice C. J. Schroeder had no
right to touch the case after he had
once Bent transcripts from his court
and so took the matter under advise
ment till tomorrow morning at 8
o'clock when he will give his ultim
atum on the matter. Billburg is out
on 50O bonds which he furnished.
Lena Bekaert filed complaint In
the police court yesterday against
Jacob Hollebousch, a barkeeper,
charging him with assault and bat
tery. Neither one of the principals
had a witness in police court and so
the case was continued till tomorrow
morning at 9 o'clock. The little dif
ficulty occurred in the Dhulster sa
loon Saturday afternoon. The wo
man purchased a can of beer. She
says she gave a four bit piece for the
fluid while the barkeep said she gave
only a dime. There was an argu
ment. Both sides agree on that.
WOMAN IS EJECTED.
It ended in the barkeep escorting
the woman to the outer air via the
rear door of the place. The woman
says that he was rough in his han
dling of her. He says she had been
drinking and he had to aid her out
side. That is the question that the
