TROOPS TO STAY
FOR THE PRESENT
AT ALL EVENTS
Authorities Decide to Keep Sit
uation in Check Until At
. mosphere Is Cleared.
LOCAL MILITARY OFFICERS WHO ARE
FIGURING IN MARTIAL LAW REGIME
REGULATIONS NOT SEVERE
Predicament One That Conld Not Be
Avoided and Might aa Well lie
Carried Through Now.
Several Rock Island business men
rolled upon Mayor H. M. Schriver and
ether authorities today to learn, if
possible, how long the troops are to
remain here, or how long martial
law 19 to be in operation. It is ai
question which could not be definite
ly answered, except that the troops
T ill be kept here until the local sit
uation is clarified and every indica
tion points toward peace and
Quietude. There Is a probability that
the troops will remain here until
after the primary day, April 9. It
may be that arrangements will be
made to relieve a portion of the regi
ment nfter the sentiment of the peo
ple calms down.
Though it is realized that the pres
ence of the soldiers and the order of
martial law is not the most pleasant
spectacle Imaginable, all are agreed
that the action of the authorities con
cerning the remedy for the mob riot
was for the best. "Better by far,"
said one citizen, "to have a few short
days of martial law than to wait for
the atmosphere to settle later."
I'KOPI.II ARK MOT IIAMI'KKKU. .
Through the exercise of Judgment
end common sense on the part of
Sheriff O. L,. Bruner and Mayor Schrlver,
the requirements of the situation are
not oppressive. No one is hampered
in going about his business it Is
scarcely military law. It is merely
a pacifying influence that is meant as
a public safeguard for the time being.
There Is nothing to keep off the
tst ret ti those who are peaceably inclin
ed and business need not suffer.

Into the riot situation last night sent

"Fear of possible dynamiting of
the city hall was aroused today by
the appearance in Hock Island of a con
struction worker and his close connec

in the railroad yards. The state and
county olllcers will make a full inves
tigation of what is supposed to be a
carefully planned plot to blow up the
city hall and possibly other buildings.

Several witnesses have been sunpoen

That the police are not liable for
the death, or Injury, of any of the vic

the police had a right to defend them

HAS NICE TRIBUTE
FOR MISS HICKMAN
The rtaff representative of the Chi-1
enpo Record-Herald in the course of
his Ftory this morning, says:
"Probably no attache of the city
hall has more reason to be proud of
bis or her action today than has Miss
Velma Hickman, who acts in the ca
pacity of HtenogTapher, deputy may
or and chief adviser of the city elective.
"During the morning, while all sorts
of threats were being made unainst
city officials and the occupants of the
city hall. Miss Hicknian sat in her ac
customed place at a front window of
the building working at her desk.
"She was occupying this position in
the building when a bullet crashed
through a window and tore a fragment
for the wall a few feet from Mayor
Sell river's head.
'I don't see any reason to be ner
vous,' said Miss Hickman when asked
if she was going to continue to occupy
her place at the window in the may
or's omce. 'I know that nobody Is go
ing to shoot me.' "

of pianos, the old way of paying solicitors, paying music teachers' commissions and engaging great
artists to play their pianos at fabulous sums are being eliminated, and now it is the question of the
best advertised piano, and one in which the purchasers are given the greatest oossible value. This
is the age of co-operation and the manufacturers correctly believe that the best way to market and
introduce their product is to spend the advertising money in making special offers to the people
rather than employing world-famous demonstrators at fabulous expense and making the people
pay for such methods by asking a heavy price for the piano.

Harry M. McCaskrin's political meet
ing at Moline last night, which rumor
had it would prove an exciting affair,
was a happy 'disappointment in that
respect. People who poured into the
town by carloads expecting to wade
through the streets in gore up to their
knees, departed somewhat at a loss to
determine whether they had heard a
campaign epc-f-ch or had participated In
a Sunriav school basket lunch.

that he could talk but 15 minutes and
must confine himself absolutely to cam

to. Many people, thinking the talk
would Lcgia at 8 o'clock, were sur
