HYDROCYCLE LATEST AQUATIC CRAFT ;""
ITS PROPELLERS DO NOT TOUCH WATER
Want Better Protection. Merchants
of the 300 block have adopted resolu
tion$ asking for better and more effi
cient police protection. More police- j
men' and the reduction of territory a'
patrolman Is to watch are recommend-!
d. , The protest of the Ginger club j
follows the many recent burglaries In- j
eluding the successful robbery of the
Kuttkel Hardware store in the 300- j
blocfc on Second a few days ago. The j
xneotlng was held In the Milier & Grue- j
nau store with ail of the 22 members
of the firm represented. A commit-
tee consisting of H. C. Lage, E. H.
Sanford and C. J. Ruymann was ap
pointed to draw up resolutions on bet
ter police protection following the
unanimous expression of oi.inion fav
oring such action.
Give Ashes to River. "It is growing
dark, I must turn on the bridge
lights," were the last words of Cap-1
tain Leo Schumacher, the veteran
bridge guard. Immediately after ut
tering the words, the lights of the life
cf the aged man, who was over 77
years old. were extinguished and he
went to his reward. An example of
the way in which he was interested in
the spot where he worked, was that
mniiy times he asked the pension
agent, who was a friend, to have his
r'-malns cremated and jlhe ashes cast
on the "Father of Waters" near the
western end of the bridge, where so
many years of his life were spent.

Trying out Hydrocycle at Milan.
A tandem hydrocycle was recently given a tryout at Milan with great
si ccess by its builders Moretti brothers. The novelty of the hydrocycle,
which is foot propelled, lies In the fact that instead of its propellers be
lnj; placed in the water at the stern o the machine, as is usual in water
crcft, this water skimming cycle has its propellers placed in the rear of
thr iron frame, far removed from the water. Considerable speed can be
nade on this hydrocycle and It is predicted that within a short time it
will be seen on all the inland waters.
To Inspect Elevators. One of the
first moves of the new year bn the part
of the city building commissioner in
enforcing terms of the building ordin
ance passed last June, will be a thor
ough inspection of all freight and pas
senger elevators in the city of Moline.
This inspection will be undertaken
during the month of January, and ev
ery six months thereafter, and a per-
I mit to operate will not be granted until
the building inspector, John H. Wood,
has reported satisfactorily on- condi
tions as they exist.
Water Scarce. Commissioner Jahns
announces that because of the low
stage of the river the pumping at the
waterworks station Is much more dif
ficult. This is caused because of the
heavy lift put on the pumps. The low
er the stage of the river, the higher
must the pumps lift the water, hence
the necessity of the patrons rl the wa
terworks department to be more care
ful in the way water is used.
Big Price Offered. Rumor of the
street is that Dr. E. L. Kerns has offer
ed Fred Baas $60,000 for the Baas
property on Sixth avenue, immediate
ly east of that purchased from W. R.
Moore by H. F. Vierich, acting for the
