Wanted to Be Treated. A trio of
young laborers, Victor Johnson, Oscar
Hanson and Carl Lind, attempted to
force an invitation to a drink at the
John P. O'Neill saloon, 913 Fourth
avenue. This led to a flow of invec
tives against the selected "entertain
er" and the interference by the police
Thursday evening. Each man was
fined $5.05 in court
Stuck Too Faithfully. Herman
Meyer, a factory employe, who was
arrested yesterday morning for creat
ing a disturbance at the interurhan
car barns at the foot of Sixteenth
street, when fined $2.80 yesterday
morning in court gave it out that
"Swede" was no true friend. "Swede"
has some other name but Meyer
doesn't know what it Is. The two men
were chummy all Thursday evening
and partook liberally of a choice brand
of intoxicating fluid in the solitude of
their own apartments. Then as the
hour grew late the pair went out to
quaff the night air and their course
led to the barns. They stopped
longer than the watchman thought ex
pedient and when an invitation to
"get gone" was issued Meyer, so he
claimed, was willing, but "Swede" was
not Then to demonstrate that he
was faithful to the vows of friendship
Meyer determined to "stick" until
"Swede" was ready to move. The po
lice were called. At the suggestion
of a billy club "Swede" took to his
heels down the railroad track and has
not been seen since. Meyer was left
to alone stand the court's displeasure.
.Plan Bigger Show. With an enthu
siasm that insures Buccess, members
of the Moline Poultry association have
commenced to plan for great things
in connection with the second annual
show, dates of which were set for
Dec. 18 to 22, inclusive, at the regu
lar monthly meeting held Thursday
evening in Turner hall. Splendid re
sults were attained at the first show
last month, when people of the trt
cities, particularly the poultry fanciers
and breeders, showed their desire for
annual exhibits that will rank favora
bly with those of older and larger as
sociations. It has been definitely de
cided that the second show will be in
every way of much greater scope than
the one of 1911.
Need New High School. It Is ex
pected that at least 75 per cent of the
91 eighth grade pupils who were given
certificates of promotion yesterday
afternoon will enter the high school
at. the beginning of the second semes
ter next Monday. With this consid
lerable enrollment, and -the fact that
there is no outgoing class from the
high school at this season of the year
the question of inadequate facilities is
again emphasized. How are 500 pu
pils to be properly accommodated in
an assembly room that has only 299
seats? This is a problem that con
fronts Principal E. P. Nutting and his
corps of teachers at the high school
building, and its conclusion will not
be an easy one. Agitators for a new
and larger high school building find
new argument for expansion with
nearly every passing day, and it is ap
parent that some remedy will soon
have to be applied.
