DECISION FED. 26
After hearing the arguments of bothj
s!des 1n the injunction case of the city
against A. W. Billburg, Judge F. D.
Ramsay yesterday afternoon adjourn
ed the circuit court after announcing
tbat he would render a decision on
the city's petition Feb. 26. That gives
him a week in which to fully advise
himself before giving his opinion. At
that time he will either enjoin Bill
burg from continuing to operate his
faloon and chop suey house east of
''lancer square, or else will deride
that as the criminal laws seem to cor-
or the point, the court cannot issue
an Injunction. Following the decision
on the injunction Judge Ramsay will
probably hear the quo warranto pro
ceedings instituted by the city against
the same party.

BEFORE IT STOPS
Orll Dimond, an Itinerant peddler
whose home is in Davenport, couldn't
wait till he hit the station at Cam
bridge yesterday bo that he could dis
pose of articles from his pack of wares,
and as a result of his hurry he lies at
St Anthony's hospital, not in a ser

left Rock Island yesterday morning on
the Peoria train, and as the brakeman
called the station at Cambridge, Di
mond made a rapid run for the car
exit Without waiting for the train to
come to a stop, he walked off onto terra
firma. Instead of alighting lightly on
his feet, he thumped down heavily
upon his pate. The train was going
slowly, so that Dimond escaped ser

for, and sent into Rock Island last ev

a few days. His store of articles for
sale was somewhat depleted through
breakage and he will have to lay in a

Judge Theophilus In the district

written the night of the murder.
Whether it was voluntary and whether
it should be allowed as material evi
dence in the case is a question that the
judge wiil decide before allowing the
case to go oc. It is the first time in
the history of the court that such a
matter has arisen.

Mr. Jones proved a good talker, and
spoke convincingly. Incidently if he
could be elected on his personal ap
pearance he would certainly grace the
executive chair of the state, for he is a

lican machine Mr. Jones spoke in part

republican party Is overwhelmingly
progressive, upon both national and
