THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1912.
WANTS COURT TO
H. M. McCaskrin Argues Mo
tion Challenging Array of
Special Grand Jury.
H. M jJcCaskrtn, this morning in the
circuit court before Judge R. W. Olm
sted, argued hit motion in which he
challenges the array of the special
grand Jury which indicted him togeth
er with P. H. Wells and E. H. Gardner
on charges with Intent to murder.
No decision will be forthcoming
until Monday, as court adjourn
ed this noon after Mr. McCaskrin had
made the motion and before bis associ
ate attorney, W. C. Allen, or Stage's
Attorney L. M. Maglll had been heard.
The contention of Mr. McCaskrin is
that the calling of a special grand Jury
was illegal, as the regular grand Jury
had not been discharged according to
law. He further contends that ex
Deputy Sheriff J. G. Miller was preju
diced against the defendants and se
lected men for the Jury who were also
prejudiced. He asks that the court
now rule that Judge F. D. Ramsay was
In error in ordering a special grand
jury and that the special grand jury
so convened be declared illegal.
Attorney P. H. Wells, another of the
defendants, was In court this morn
ing to hear the arguments of Mr. Mc
Caskrin. In case the present mo' ion
fails, he will file a motion for having
the indictments quashed and will em
ploy many of the arguments now being
used by McCaskrin.
When a cold becomes settled in the
system, it will take several days' treat
ment to cure it, and the best remedy
to use Is Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy. It will cure quicker than any
other, and also leaves the system in a
natural and healthy condition. Sold by
all druggists. (Advertisement).

Successful Bankers, Business Men
and Old Phone Men
The Tri-City Automatic Home
Telephone company Is backed by
some of the leading bankers, mer
chants and business men of the tri
clties and Borne of the best telephone
men in the United States.
The president of the Tri-City Auto
matic Home Telephone company is E.
H. Moulton of Minneapolis, one of the
most successful telephone men in this
country. He and his associates have
more than ten millions of dollars in
vested in the telephone system cover
ing the northwest which extends
throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Da
kotas and into Montana and from the
Canadian border, southward down the
Mississippi almost to the tri-clties.
This extensive system Is known as
the Tri-State Telephone & Telegraph
company. The company operates over
seventy-five thousand telephones in
addition to the several thousand miles
of long distance toll lines.
Any merchant of Minneapolis or St
Paul will tell you that 75 per cent of
the telephone business of the north
west is done over this system.
E. H. Moulton, who, as stated above.
Is president of the Tri-City Automatic
Home Telephone company, is also
president of this extensive telephone
system of the northwest. Mr. Moulton.
besides being one of the most suc
cessful telephone men in the country,
has in the last third of a century alsa
built up one of the most successful
banking institutions of the northwest,
with deposits of more than 114,000,000.
Several thousand citizens of Min
neapolis and St. Paul are financially
interested in his telephone system,
which government experts say is one
of the best on this continent. The
telephone rates charged by his com
Ijany are lower than those charged in
any other cities of similar size in the
world, the rates being lower than
those found in London. Berlin or Paris,
where the cities own the telephone
companies, and yet .at the same time
the Tri-State Telephone company pays
wages far in excess of those paid In
the capitals of Europe where the tele
phone plants are government owned.
Bryan H. Osborn of Franklin. Pa.,
a prominent attorney and bank direc
tor, and who represents a number of
eastern Investors, is also associated
vith Mr. Moulton In the Tri-City
