TO SCARE A 'GUY'
Knhert Palmer. 18 Year Old
Boy, Sent to County Jail
for 20 Days.
COULD NOT BE BLUFFED
Says He Did Shooting to Frighten
Fellow With Whom He Had
Evidently determined to let no man
walk over him, Robert Palmer, until
yesterday employed In a local hotel,
purchased a second-hand revolver last
evening, and when his alleged tor
menter approached, pulled said firearm
and discharged one of Its leaden mes
sengers into terra firroa, just to terri
fy the "guy. As a result, ne was ar
rested for carrying concealed weapons,
said fine being sufficient to insure him
of 20 days' lodging In the county jail
In lieu of the necessary cash with
which to pay It Palmer Is 18 years
old and his home Is in DesMoines.
FLIPPAXT REMARK CAVSE.
He told Magistrate Smith this morn
ing that some "guy" had asked mm
what he was doing. His reply was
flippant. "It's none of your business."
An argument ensued and from mai
mer's account, was fiercely waged
Palmer set out for the gun and later
when the same fellow followed him
home, he put a quietus on further trou
ble by discharging his cannon. The
shot was fired about 11 o clock last
evening at Twelfth street and Second
avenue. Palmer was with two com
panions at the time. They were ar
rested, too, but claim that the "guy'
who could not run over Palmer Is
nothing more than a mythical inven
tion, of Palmer.
ROCK ISLAND TAX
BOOKS TURNED IN
John T. Noftsker, collector for
Rock Island township, today turned
over his real estate tax books to
County Treasurer W. H. Whiteside
and made a complete settlement for
the same. While the delinquent list
is larger than last year by some
$15,000, nevertheless the collection
is up to the average. From the books
the following facts are gleaned: total;
amount charged against Rock Island
real estate, $218,367.16; delinquent,
$88,312.79: total collected, $130,-
054.37. The collector's total com
mission amounts to $2,325.58.
The total real estate charged up to
be applied to county purposes was
$23,678.47, of which $14,102.27 was
collected and $9,576.20 was reported
The municipal tax charged was
$68,743.68. of which $40,943.48 was
collected, leaving $27,800.20 delin
quent. Deducting the collector's
commission this leaves $40,123.62 for
city purposes, which has been turned
over to the city treasurer.
The school tax collected thus far
tmounts to $55,295.58. the delin
quent list totaling nearly $40,000.
f'artlal settlements have been made
from time to tlmo by Collector Noft
rker so that the amount turned over
to Mr. Whiteside today was not as
large as the figures above The col
lector still has the personal property
