WILL LET ALL GD
AT A PUBLIC SALE
At a meeting of the directors of the
i.ociv isiana exposition company ai ;
the Rock Island club last evening at !
which the bids for the lumber and
other property of the company con
tained in Exposition park, were open
ed, it was decided to reject all pro
posals, which were taken as entirely
tco low to be considered and to offer
the property at public sale to the
highest bidder at the Rock Island
house at 2 o'clock next Friday after
noo.i. The directors feel that inasmuch as
in addition to 72,000 feet of lumber,
a considerable portion of which is
hard wood, there is a house on the
premises that could be readily moved
and made into a good investment, to
say nothing of the electric tower and
ether property in the grounds, they
would not be justified in letting any
part of it go at a sacrifice. Hence
the opportunity that is to be pre
sented to permit the general public
to bid openly next Friday afternoon. '
In the meantime anyone who may
feel disposed to bid on the property
may by conferring with Dr. R. M.
Fearce, secretary, at his office in
the Safety building, ascertain just
what is to be offered for sale, and
may if such is the desire inspect the
same before bidding.
The directors feel that there is go
ing to be a bargain for someone.

he bad been employed in various down

CIVIL STRIFE OVER
ROUTING OF CARS
Moline faces a civil war. Second ave
nue property owners are up in arms to
prevent a shifting of the interurban
line from their street to Fifth avenue.
They threaten to enjoin then rest of
the city from carrying out the project.
The advocates of the change have .
shown on Intention of being over- j
awed, and there you are.
In response to years of agitation, !
the Tri-C3ty Railway company has con
nected the Interurban line with the ',
Fourth avenue line at Twenty-fifth
street, thereby obviating the use of j
the dangerous railroad crossing at that 1
street Thus far the new route has i
not been put in use, and when it is.
the storm will break.
PEDESTRIANS USED AS
TARGETS BY "JOYS"
Hurling beer bottles at pedestrians
was the exciting pastime Indulged in
last evening by a party of joy riders
who eped up Twentieth street in a big j
green touring car.' The occupants of
the car were badly intoxicated.
As the big car sped across Third
avenue at Twentieth street, one of the
occupants of the car let out a "yip"
and threw a beer bottle at a group of
persons who were about to board a
Bridge line car. The occupants of the
car, three of whom were girls, were
singing and hooting in maudlin fatfh
ion. The car turned east on Fifth ave
nue, which was the last seen of it.
