Minutes When Goldberg
REAL COMEDY AT STATION
Missing Badge la Finally Returned to
Rightful Owner and Peace Is
"Constable for a Day" was the title
cf a little farce-comedy staged at the
police station this morning, in which
Louis Marks, who has for some time
past cherished aspirations as to the
high office of constable, played the
leading role, ably supported by Simon
Goldberg, the present, constable, who
was for several hours snorn of his
glory and reduced to the ranks of prl
STAR IS LOST.
The elevation of Marks and the re
duction of Goldberg all came about
through an innocent little star, which
has always rested proudly on Gold
berg's manly chest, but which was lost
in the shuffle on election night. When
the constable discovered the loss of
his star on Wednesday morning he
was torn between conflicting emo
tions. If he inserted a want ad in the
papers for the missing badge, he fear
ed that the public would no longer re
spect him as an offcer of the law. Af
ter permitting his secret sorrow to
gnaw at his breast for three long
clays, Simon this morning concluded
to order a new star, inasmuch as the
missing property had not put in an
appearance, and ordered a brand new
one at Fiebig's.
Then coming over to the police sta
tion he was confronted with a terri
ble sight. There stood his hated ri
val, Louis Marks, who has repeatedly
avowed his intention of running for
the office of constable and ousting the
present incumbent. Proudly adorning
his veBt was a star which read, "Con
stable of Rock Island County" and
the police were hailing Marts as the
new constable, and showering him
I with congratulations, because of his
prompt appointment for good work in
furthering the democratic cause.
"Take this warrant and serve it.
Constable," said an officer to Marks.
'How many does it call for?" quer
ied the new officer.
"Say, what do you think I am?"
shouted Marks. "Give me some hep."
"Mister Goldberg will undoubtedly
assist you," said the officer, whereup
on Goldberg interrupted and address
ing Marks shouted, "I shall take a
guy when you won't get him? I
wouldn't do it."

to leave the place, presumptively to

stopped him and shouted: "You are

IS DISCUSSED BY
Improvement of Many Cross
Streets in Downtown Sec
BOULEVARD ON ELEVENTH
Eighteenth Avenue From Seventeenth
to Thirtieth Streets May Be
Plans for the levying of new cross
r.lreets throughout the entire business
eection and the paving of other thor
oughfares were discussed this morn
ing at a meeting of the board of lo
cal improvements, and if present
pians do not miscarry, work ' on the
contemplated improvements will be
Inaugurated early In. the spring.
Among others the following work
was discussed: The continuation of
the repaving of Second avenue to
Seventh street and the paving of Sev
enth street to Fourth avenue; the
paving of Fourteenth-and-a-half street
from Seventh to Eighteenth avenues,
the paving of all cross streets from
Twenty-fourth through the business
district, of Ninth avenue from Elev
enth to Twenty-fifth streets, Eleventh
street from Ninth avenue to the river.
Twenty-fifth street from Ninth ave
nue south to Thirteenth avenue, Sev
enth avenue from Ninth to Twelfth
fctreet, and Eighteenth avenue from
Seventeenth to Thirtieth street.
PLAN A nOl l.EVARD.
On Eleventh street the plan la to
place a boulevard In the center of
the thoroughfare, similar to that on
Seventh avenue. Inasmuch as ther.e
prt no car tracks north of Seventh
avenue. The center boulevard would
te 14 feet in widtn, wTilie the asphalt
would extend from It on both aides
to a width of 14 feet, making a total
v idth for the street of 42 feet.
As regards the repaving of the
cross streets in the down town dis
trict, the contention Is that the poor
condition of these thoroughfares
causes a great deal of mud to be
tiiagged on the main streets, thua
making it a difficult proposition to
keep them in first class condtfTon.
Further discussion of the pTSna will
be made in the near future and It la
the hope of the board that contracts
can be let and work begun by March
1, In the event of the various project!

A call was sent in for the fire de
