OVER DANVILLE GAME
Enthusaism for the Danville game
In Moline Saturday Is rapidly rising in
the city. With the prospects of hav
ing an old time championship team
the Moline fans who have been sleep
ing for several moons are waking and
the old Moline spirit of loyalty is
again asserting itself. A parade of all
the fans of the city, business men in
cluded, is on the program for Satur
day afternoon Just preceding the
game. This will take place in the
downtown district and the line of
march will be taken up from there to
the scene of battle on Browning field.
Danville is coming with an eleven
of seasoned veterans, the majority of
whom were members of last year's
team. Their lineup as received by
Manager R. W. Falrchlld shows not
a single one of the eleven to be a first
year man in the high school. Three of
the number are seniors, five are Jun
iors and three are sophomores.

(Signed.) LOUIS M. QUITMAN.
4412 Prairie avenue,
A photographic copy of this promis
sory note, purporting to have been
given by Secretary Quitman of the
Woman's Protective league to the
former "vice king," familiarly
known as "Mike the Pike"
Helper, was exhibited by Attorney
Carl Waldron of the committee of 15
in support of the charge that Louis
M. Quitman, ostensibly an ardent re
former, had close relations with peo
ple against whom he is supposed to
Quitman was not present when the
note was exhibited to the council com
mittee which is investigating the prob
lem of segregation. His attorney was
there, however, and he said: "Mr. K'
Quitman says the note is a forgery ,
and that the whole thing is a frame-,
This was greeted with Jeers from
the room full of reformers. And then ;
Attorney WaldroB added to his
"I know of eight more such notes j
outstanding," he said, "each for $100." J
Waldron then introduced a copy of j
a letter sent out by Quitman to prom- j
lnent men referring to his organiza-;
tion and asking them to appear at;
the council hearings.
Later in the evening Quitman made
public a formal statement, in which
"The note exhibited by Mr. Wald
ron to the council committee, claimed
to have been signed by me and given j
to Michael Heitler, is an absolute
forgery, and was designed to ruin my
reputation, as I will show in a lawful
manner if its owner will commence !
suit upon it and give me an oppor-j
tunity to disprove it by sworn testi-j
mony. I challenge such owner to
commence such suit and thereby ob
tain for himself the opportunity of
proving its execution by me if he can
by sworn testimony.
"When I was engaged In an Investi
gation of a story that Heitler was col
lecting graft from the west side dis
orderly houses for a certain police
official, now off the force, my inves
tigation became too warm for the com
fort, of Heitler, and he personally met
me and told me he would 'get me'
if I did not 'let up.' I defied him,
"Some days later he came to me
and Bald, with a sneer, that he would
be obliged if I would pay my note,
but never exhibited it to me. I told
him he was a liar, that he had no
note of mine. I ordered him out of
"Later I learned that Heitler was
giving Laurence Richey, chief inves
tigator for the commission, some se
cret information. I happened upon
Heitler coming from a conference w-ith
Richey. He suspected that I knew
what he was doing and once again
I heard of the note.
"Two weeks ago a man claiming to
represent HeiUer came to my office
and spoke of the note. He said I
could have it for $250 without pay
ment if I would not attack the Immoral
flats, of which Heitler has a dozen or
more. Again they sought to inter
fere with my work In the Interest of
the public. This man went out of the
office quicker than he entered and
since then I have been frequently over
"The note was shown to Miss Mary
Balcomb, secretary of the Young Peo
ple's Civic league. She tells me that
it is not my handwriting. Heitler
owns 11 disorderly houses In Gary,
Ind., and 14 immoral flats on the
west side, according to his boasts."
A score of advisors appeared before
the council committee and the advice
was all in one direction, against seg
regation. Among those who spofce
against the system were Jane Addams?
Mrs. Joseph T. Bowen, Miss Maude
Miner of New York, Miss Virginia
Brooks, Father P. J. O'Callaghan, At
torney Carl Waldron, the Rev. Jenktn
Lloyd Jones, Rufus S. Simons, Dr.
Thomas Kei:y, Attorney John S. Ham
mond of Des Moines, and Mrs. Ger
trude Howe Button.
"The foes of this evil have decided
to form an organization," said Miss
Addams, "and will lend its assistance
in every possible way."
Miss Addams did not care to speak
at length, but was content to make
her announcement of intended action.
She introduced Mrs. Bowen, presi
dent of the Juvenile Protective asso
ciation. "To permit segregation," said Mrs.
Bowen, "is for the city to assume the
role of procurer. It is a blot on every
! city where it exists today. It legal
j izes the very evil which it is intended
to control. And Its existence is a con-1
I stant temptation to thousands of
l working girls who are discouraged j
! by the low wages they receive in legit-'
i imate employment." j
j Miss Virginia Brooks Invited the,
j committee to go to West Hammond .
, and see for themse'.ves the great Im- i
! provement effected by the closing of!
the pvtlic dives. "West Hammond is:
a city that Indiana will be proud of,' j
; she said.
Attorney Waldron spoke of the'
crushing economic conditions under
i which women live in segregated dis-;
; tricts, comparing the system to slav-j
' ery. He quoted figures that would ,
have been surprising if they had not
been In line with information which
j the committee has bean receiving

j 1st Fathers declared that his address
