When the question of whether or
not the Rock Island Liquor Dealers'
association should contribute to a
fund for the purpose of defraying the
expenses of the A. V. Billburg de
fense In the trials instituted by the.
city and state authorities was put to a
vote at the liquor dealers' meeting yes
terday afternoon at Turner hall, Billburg
was turned down by a vote of 22 to 11.
The vote, with one or two exceptions,
was made Iby the Australian ballot
system. Because tt was a special ses
sion, the president of the association,
Tim Collins, refused to allow any
other matters to be brought before
the body because of the question of
the legality of the transaction of any
other business at the special session.
SC9TAI THE MAYOR.
The vote followed a brief discus
sion, and as at the meeting of Mon
day, the consensus of opinion voiced
In the discussion was against Billburg.
It 1s a rule of the organization that
where there Is violation of the law,
the asooclation shall not uphold the
violator. In this case, it was a fight
as to whether Billburg should be sus
tained in his defiant attitude or
whether the city administration should
be upheld In the enforcement of the
law. Too, It was a question as to
whether or not the mayor has a
light to revoke a license before first
having secured the conviction of the
party In question in court. In other
words, the majority of the member
ship of the association believes in the
right of the mayor to revoke a license
when he finds there la cause.
RKOI.lTIO AIIK EMPHATIC.
Some very emphatic resolutions up
holding the city administration were
brought before the association but be
cause they were foreign to the thing
for which the meeting was called they
were laid aside. Had they been pre
sented and passed, and there Is every
reason to believe they would have
been, the city administration would
have gained the recorded support of
TO RE IMPORTANT MEKTING.
The regular session of the associa
tion is to be held the first Friday In
February and at that time many
things that will have a vital effect on
the future of the organization will
come tip. Election of officers is to be
held. In the past all that has been
necessary to allow a man to become
a member of the organization has
been a license and a bond through
the Rock Island Bonding company.
In other words, a saloonkeeper had
to have no other qualifications beside
Ms saloon, his license and his bonds.
Through this method, it Is thought
that the membership of the organiza
tion has bfen weakened.
I'KITIO OK MEMBKKJHIP.
One of the important matters for
consideration, therefore, will be the
question of membership and qualifi
cation. Just what requirements will
be made has not been derided. Lead
ers state that unless this is done,
along with, otlwr changes along lines
of betterment, the association will be
practically worthless a an association.

WILL BUILD HOUSE
ABOUT PILE OF ICE
Along the river bank near Forty-
fourth street. Rock Island, la a "gla
cier" that 1b constantly increasing In
size. If nothing happens Its growth
will continue till March 1. This huge
pile of ice is the property of the Syl
van Ice company and each day it Is
being "fed" by a force of 100 men,
who are at work on the ice field.
As long as weather conditions per
mit the ice pile will be added to,
hope being to get 4,000 tons In one
"mass." Two houses are being filled
in addition. When the "glacier" is
completed, carpenters will start
building a house around it. Dimen
sions of the new ice house therefore
depend on the size of the ice pile.
Approximately 3,000 tons of ice
have been stored in two houses, but
this is not an much as the company
desires to "put up." This Is an un
usually good year for an Ice harvest
and the company has decided to
make the best of it. For this reason
it was decided to pile the Ice In a
huge block and later build a house
around It. The Ice house probably
will cost $3,000. Ic taken from Syl
van slough at this time is from 17 to
18 Inches thick. It Is unusually clear
and an official of the company says
It Is the best quality ever harvested.

leged bath tub trust has been
