IN FREIGHT YARD
Thieves Carry Away 34 Pov.nd3
of Smoking Tobacco but
Get Little Else.
S. R. Kenworthy.
Thieves broke Into six freight cars
In the yards of the Milwaukee road at
'lie foot of Sixteenth street some time
iart night, but there Is every reason
to believe that th'ir swag consisted of
naught else than some 04 pounds of
smoking tobacco. Three of the tars
entered were loaded with incoming
merchandise, one with marMe ami the
other two wiUi goods being shipped
nway from here. Crates containing
fh,nen were broken into, but no thoes
wer. mi. bi,v. Evidently the thieves
were l'Mking for t.h'ngs of little bu'k
that might easily be carried away.
Tli police were nottfied this morning
ii ii '1 a detective is at work on the case,
though the rob!ers l"fl no clew.

A special train over the Rock Island
road from Chicago to Moline, made
remarkable time yesterday in bringing
( A. Stephens, president of the .Mo
l'lie Plow company to a most import
ant meeting of the stockholders cf
that concern. Mad it not been for
a delay at Ottawa caused by a hot box,
record time would have been made.
Mr Stephens arrived in Chicago from
the eaht too late to get the fast train
vhich arrives here shortly after noon.
Ai 1 aiigements were at om:e made for
a special train. It left the LaSalle
K''eet station at 11:24 and reached
Mr-line at 3 Forty minutes wr
wasted at Ottawa, lietween Bureau
and here the train averaged better
tl an a mile a minute. Engine No. 1017

Recently The Argus published a
I communication from Joe F. Gstetteo
I bauer In which he protested against
1 the practice in vogue here among the
I moving picture houses of charging
! double admission on Saturdays, Sun
I days and holidays. He called upon
' the city commission to stop the prac-
tice If possible. The commission ac
cepted the communication and refer-
; red it to one of its members and the !
city attorney. Today the mayor re- j
ce ived the following answer to the j
' communication from A. C. Powell,
manager of the Colonial theatre:
j Rock Island, 111., Jan. 9, 1913. Hon
orable Mayor and Commissioners, City
'of Rock Island. Dear Sirs: Noticing
in The Argus a letter written by Mr.
Gstettenbauer to you In regard to the
advanced price in picture shows, I feel
it necessary to sa"y he sees this ques
tion only from his point of view. Here
it is from the picture manager's stand
point: Do the people of Rock Island know
the price of one reel of pictures or the,
rental of one per day? Do they know
the price of electricity, building rent,
1 union labor, musicians, and operators,
J and the license we pay to the city? It
I takes five days out of seven, every one
of thoses to be fair weather, to make
But what I wish to emphasize most
! is that we work seven days a week
: and holidays. Does Mr. Gstettenbauer?
If he were asked to do so, would he not
want extra compensation? Remember,
we employ people who work 365 days
i in the year. If the people do not care
for Sunday or holiday ehows, I for one
would be glad to close my doors on
these days. Also, this Is not purely a
local affair. Davenport, with the ex
1 ceptlon of two theatres, has the same
iolicy as Rock Island picture shows,
and adorned it about the sa metlme.
There are many more picture fans In
i Moline than the other two cities, and
I the managers can afford the straight
. cents admission; and let it be under
stood that pic ture shows are 'not to be
I classed with saloons. We aim to give
i good, clean shows, one to which a man
can take his family and spend an hour
cf the day in comfort and pleasure. No
respectable man can find such enjoy
I irtent with his family In a saloon,
j Show me a man who goes into a sa
loon and stays an hour and spends
I only a dime . There Is no comparison
I whatever between a saloon and a mo
j tion picture show. The grocer may
have to have properly Inspected scales,
I but there is nothing to compel him
I from charging what he chooses for
butter and eggs. We have to have
. properly inspected end censored plct
; tin s, and if our expenses increase like
! the grocer ,the butcher, etc., we must
: ask an increase In price for our en
tertainment. Furthermore, we do not charge 10
cents 01 Saturdays, unless we have a j
ieature bill, one that is in some way j
better than the usual daily program i
