NEW CAR LINETO
Mayor's Proposition to Reroute
the Long View Is Lost by
3 to 2 Vote.
HART FAVORS THE PLAN
Substitute Motion by Rudgren to Table
Matter Is Carried by Aid of
Reynolds and Bear.
The rerouting of street cars so s
j v uudjui uiuuu
facilities for Third avenue was forced
to an Issue- yesterday afternoon at
the weekly council meeting when May
or H. M. Schriver introduced a resolu
tion calling for a rearrangement of
the Long View line, so as to have It
run both on Second and Third avenues.
The result of the vote was three to
two In favor of letting the lines as
they now are and ignoring the claims
of Third avenue. Mt-vor Schriver'a
resolution was seconded by Com-
missioner Hart and thereupon Com
missioner Rudgren moved to lay the
; matter on the table which virtual
I ly means killing it. The vote on
,the substitute motion was: Ayes Rud
, gren, Reynolds and Bear; nays
Schriver and Hart. No discussion ac
t ompanied the matter, all the com
: mifsioners having long eince made up
! their minds how they would vote when
it came to a show down.
ri.AX TO ill OCK PAVING.
The action t ih council may re
.-nit in the put'ing furth of additional
i tflorts on the part of property owners
j against the repaying of the avenue.
' At least such was the 'hreat of one of
them yesterday, whet; apprised of the
commission's attitude. He said: "If
Third avenue is to be kept a back
Btreet through lack of cat' lines, then
I for one am unwilling to go to the
! same way. Had we been given a car
j line or two, we would have shown our
j appreciation by aiding in the paving."
, Mayor Schriver said that he knew
or suspected what tne vote or me
j commission would be and that he had
I forced the matter to an issue so that
'the paving would no longer hinge on
car lines. "It is my intention to go
before the Third avenue people, tell
them that I have done all in my
power to get what they wanted, have
failed, and now believe that it ia up
! i to them to withdraw their objections
to the paving. The street is in dire
need of new paving and the work
should be delayed no longer. The Trl
City Railway company is to lay double
tracks along the avenue and the car
routing proposition can be handled
more easily when next it comes up as
it is sure to do in the future."
The mayor's plan of rerouting the
Ixng View was to have it enter Sec
ond avenue from east and west as it
does no, but to turn south on Seven
teenth and return to its present route
by way of Third avenue.
MINOR BCSIXE95 MATTERS.
The regular business of the council
consisted of hearing a few objectors
to various paving matters; the dis
cussion of relief measures for Twenty
eighth Btreet between Eighth-and-a-half
and Ninth avenues, where a
steep grade exists; the allowing of
the payroll for the week amounting
in a'.l to $171.15 and the passing of
two paving ordinances, Eleventh street
and Eighteenth avenue.
CITY CLERK HAS
PROBLEM TO FACE
Must Decade Whether or Not to
Have Progressive Ballot
Petitions Are Filed.
A problem confronts Commissioner
: M. T. Rudgren relative to the legal-
ity of a petition filed yesterday in
i which Jesse Eastman seeks to have
his name put on a ballot aa a progres
sive candidate for the election to the
office of police magistrate at the pri
mary to be held Feb. 25. It seems
that the candidate has become con
fused between the progressive party
and the progressive party for social
justice, the latter being the one on
which Roosevelt ran at the recent gen
eral elections. A South Moline man
was the lone candidate on the pro
gressive ticket in November and as
he failed to poll two per cent of the
vote, it la questionable whether or
not the party can be recognized at
the coming primary. At the same
time there Is no question but that
Eastmaa seeks the nomination on the
real b Jtl moose ticket. Mr. Rudgren la
to take the matter np with City At
torney J. J Witter before deciding
as to whether or not there shall be
a ballot for the progressive party.
PETTTIOirS AJLB FTLED.
All the petitions for the candidates
for nomination aa police magistrate
were filed yesterday before the city
clerk ex-officlo had declared the time
for filing ended. Following are the
Democratic C. J. Smith and E. C.
Republican Edward KlttiLsen,
James Darnell, F. H. Bertelsen, Wal- j
ter F. Driffll and James A, "Weed.
Progressive, for Social Justice
Elmer F. Holmgraln.
Progressive Jesse Eastman.
Following are the colors selected
by Commissioner Rudgren for the bal
lots: democratic, pink; republican,
whitet boll moose, blue; progressive,
green, aod socialist, red. The latter
party baa no candidates for the nom
ination, but their vote at the recent
election warrants that their ballot will
have to he prepared nevertheless,
thereby giving them an opportunity to
write In any name they may see fit.
SITL MOOSE SWITCH.
.At a meeting of bull moose party
men Saturday night it was -decided
to put Pleasant F. Cox in the fieia
as a candidate for police magts?r:c.
Later the plan vaa changed and a
younger man was selected. By adher
ing to the party appellation as used
in Illinois by Roosevelt, the bull moos-
ers prevented any competition for
their choice as the one candidate who
was outside the fold, made the mis
take of designating himself a progres
sive instead of a progressive for social
justice, and thereby will have to go
on another ticket provided It Is de
cided that his party by right has a
ballot due at this election.
BOY ATTEMPTS TO
ROB COAL OFFICE
Leo Tankesly, Aged 12, Cap
tured in Bold Burglary Try
Interrupted In an attempt to rob
the Lamont coal office last night, a
12-year-old yegg was captured and
turned over to the police by Ralph
I-amont, who stepped in pon the
youthful bandit as he was "pulling"
tee job. The sum of $2.50 was taken
from the cash register. At the sta
tiOTi the boy gave his name as Leo
Tai'kesly, son of Mrs. Minnie Tankes
ly, 535 Fourteenth street. This morn
ing he was dismissed upon the moth
er's promise to send the boy to Galva,
where he Is to be cared for by his
The lad gained access to the coal
office, which Is located just one door
east of the Hotel Harms on First
avenue, by breaking a window glass
just above the 6cales. Squeezing his
body through this narrow aperture,
he opened the side door as a means
of escape in case of an emergency, and
then tapped the cash register.
The return of Mr. Lamont at 7
o'clock interrupted the work. The
boy evidently lost his head, and miss
ing the door in the darkness, jumped
behind another door in the back room,
where he was crouching in a corner
when discovered by the proprietor.
Leo told the police a strange man
with whiskers had told him he was
the proprietor and had requested him
(Leo) to crawl in through the window
as the keys had been forgotten. The
trip to Galva will serve as a parole.
WATER IS FREE OF
The report on the weekly test of
city water was submitted to Mayor H
M. Schriver this morning by Superin
tendent R. V. Sharp of the filter plant.
It showed that while the raw river
water contains 1.800 bacteria per cu
bic centimeter, the filtered water con
tains only 11 and that the alkalinity
of the river water is 15S compared
with 137 for the finished product.
Three-fourthB of the tests of raw wa
ter showed presence of disease germs
while there was none in the filtered
water in any of the tests.

MAN NEAR DEATH'S DOOR
B. Hall Rendered Unconscious by
Fumes Liea Senseless In the
Eight South Rock Island women
formed a bucket brigade yesterday af
ternoon in the absence of men from
the neighborhood, and braving the
cold weather fought a fire which in
an hour's time reduced the two-story
frame residence of W. B. Hall to ashes.
The total loss is estimated at $3,000,
and is partially covered by insurance.
Mr. Hall narrowly escaped death,
when overcome by the smoke and
fumes, he lay unconscious on the floor
for several minutes, while the flames
raged about his senseless form. Par
tially recovering himself, the man was
able to stagger out of doors and give
ASLEEP AT TIME
Mr. Hall, who is employed nights
as a switchman in the Burlington rail
road yards, was sleeping when the
fire broke out. His wife had left for
Rock Island some time before on a
shopping tour, leaving the husband
alone in the place. About 3:30 Hall
was awakened by fumes, and jump
ing out of bed rushed to the second
floor, where the smoke was so dense
that he was overcome by the smoke
and dropped o the floor in a stupor.
There he lay tor several minutes un
conscious. Finally regaining his fac
ulties, he was able to stagger down
stairs and out into the fresh air, where
he gave the alarm. Every man In
the neighborhood wag away at work,
and it devolved the women to fight the

but a heap of glowing embers.
DEFECTIVE FI.VE CAUSE.
The fire started in the attic over
the kitchen, and it Is believed that
defective flue was the cause. Mrs
Hall was apprised of the fact that
her home was burned, as She was
boarding a Watch Tower car at
o'clock, preparatory to beginning the
homeward journey. Mr. and Mrs. Hall
have moved their household effects
into a structure just east of their
old home, which is situated at the
corner of Eleventh and Braser streets.
Their loss will not exceed $100. The
