Crowder Suffers Relapse. Because
the condition of J. Lee - Crowder be
came critical Tuesday and fear is that
pleurisy may develop into pneumonia
continuance was asked in the pre-'
liminary hearing before Justice W. E.
Whiteside cf Tom Jefferson, the al
leged bandit who was arrested a few
hours after a quartet of robbers had
entered the bank of Silvia, pommeled
its lone occupant into unconscious
ness, and bad stolen $900. A certificate-
from Dr. A. C. Hansen was pre
sented to Floyd E. Thompson when
he made his request for continuance
and he vouched that the bankers' con
dition is critical. He is unable to
leave his bed or borne. Jefferson is
charged with robbery and bis bond re
mainy $10,000 pending bis arraign
ment Friday, Dec. 27, at 9 o clock. Jef
ferson with his wrists shackled was
brought to Moline from the Rock Is
land county Jail yesterday morning.
As yet the man who is held as one of
the bandits has not been identified by
Crowder. Now tnat the latter's condi- i
tion has again become extreme
through a reslapse, It is probable that
county authorities will convey tbe
prisoner to the Crowder home so that
he may be identified by the victim of
the quartet of murderous yeggs. Thus
far evidence held against Jefferson is
purely circumstantial in character.
Poultry and Corn Show Opens.
The" second annual poultry and corn
show of the Mississippi Valley Poultry
and Corn association opened in Tur
ner hall yesterday with 800 birds ex
hibited and at least 50 displays of
corn. Two hundred coops cover the
entire floor and a part of the platform.
Numbers and quality considered the
poultry exhibit surpasses anything of
the kind yet held in tbe city. A three-
legged chicken Is among the unique
features of the show, the property of
Kejlogg & Kellogg of Cambridge. The
third leg is about five inches in length
and protrudes at right angles from the
knee. It is perfectly formed except for
the fact that it has but two toes.
Among the rare species of fowls
shown are pens of white Coucouen Ma
lines and golden and silver Cam-
pines, all of them importations from
Belgium and exhibited by A. W. Ver-
beckmoes of Atkinson. Cash prizes
amounting to $600 will be awarded
winners In the poultry competition and
$127 to winners among the corn ex
hibitors. A. H. Einfeldt is in charge
of tne poultry exhibit and T. A. Stew
art of the corn. Oscar Hogberg of
this city, as secretary of the associa
tion announces that the show will be
open to the public every day and un
til 10 in the evening, also all day Sun
day, the last day of the show. -
City Free of Debt. The town of
Moline will close the calendar year

balance of a little more than $10,500

special pride in comparing conditions
in Rock Island township, where the
board has gone on record in levying
a special two percent tax assessment
to clear up its indebtedness. Moline
township has not been compelled to
resort to such an expedient in 15
years. Bills to the amount of $438.75
Ue biggest item in which was settle
