Old Man Is Hurled to Pavement
by Speeding Auto Owner
The police have thrown out a drag
net over the three cltlea In an enort
to apprehend a reckless automobile
driver, who yesterday afternoon ran
down a gray headed old man at the
corner of Twentieth street and Four'-h
avenue, and disappeared. The only
clew obtained by the authorities was
the machine number, D-542. The vic
tim of the accident Is now under the
doctor's care and will be unable to
walk for possibly months.
The accident occurred shortly after
6 o'clock. C. Steinhagcn, a harneas
maker employed in Moline, and resid
rltj-. had just alighted from a Red
line car and crossed the street to the
northwest corner, when the automo
bile, which was traveling east on
Fourth avenue, swung around the
curve north on Twentieth street. As
the automobile bore down upon him,
the old man made a frenzied leap in
an effort to throw himself out of dan
ger, but there was not time. The car
knocked Sfeinhagen to the pavement
with terrific force, and one of the
tires struck h'.s left leg at the knee,
manning the limb and rendering
walkrng impossible. The victim was
assisted to his home by the police and
various witnesses cf the affair. The
ow ner of the machine is alleged to be
a Mr. Lewis, and prosecution will fol
low should he be apprehended.

What would you think of a combin

odd combination, it would seem, yet
according to Lewis J. Buckley of Kan
sas City who Is iu the city for the
purpose of interesting the community
in his project, it has proven an un
questioned success wherever tried.
VMQI K SCHEME.
The unique scheme was advanced
by Mr. Buckley this morning at the
Rock Island club to H. S. Cable, presi
dent of that club, H. E. Casteel, head
of the Fifty Thousand organization.
and C. S. Clevenstine, president of the
Business Men's association. 'William
KHnck, manager of the Illinois thea
tre, who is always interested la big
entertainment features for this city,
also attended the conference. The mat
ter was discussed in its essential feat
ures and this afternoon at 3 o'clock a
second session was held for the pur
pose of considering the proposition in
Mr. Buckley naturally touts his ex
hibit as a real winner. In a general
way, the plan contemplates a display
of "Made In Rock Island County" goods
in which local manufacturers would
have an opportunity to display their
products. The exhibit would be coun
ty wide in its scope and would be in
all of its features a "Rock Island
county" affair for the purpose of show
ing, what has been and is being ac
complished in this county to all who
would be interested.
The home coming idea is advanced
in order that former residents of this
locality may have an opportunity to.
visit Rock Island and see how- remark
ably things have progressed. By send
ing out invitations to the distant Is
landers, who have scattered all over
the country, it is thought that the
question of getting a crowd here for
the show is solved. A "Home Com
ing" appeals in a strong sentimental j

The point is urged by Mr. Buckley
that bis "show," if such a term de
scribes it. is moral and leaves no
i "dark brown taste" in the mouth of
! the community as is too often the case
I with street fairs, carnivals end attrac
tions of that character. Mr. Buckley
contends that Rock Island county
should show the wtsrld its greatness,
contrasting present conditions with
those of even a decade ago. The
transition has been remarkable and
the show will prove of financial brne
fit, if the fact is greatly advertised. It
is for just this purpose that Mr. Buck
ley suggests his entertainment, fash
ioned after the idea of the famous
Tribune land shows, the first of which
Mr. Buckley had the honor to plan.
The exhibits would be placed in
tents, there would be such high class
amusement features as the local com
mittee might suggest, and incidental
ly the "good roads" propaganda could
be assisted by having government ex
perts from the department of agricul
ture come to the city for the purpose
of illustrating a model road and the I
''common" kind. The department Is

A negro burglar terrorized residents
of East Moline for over an hour last
night, and finally made his escape
amidst a fusillade of lead fired by
armed citizens. Private detectives
are now working on the case.
The robber first entered the resi
dence of George Williams, 425 East
First avenue, where he stole $3 and a
geld watch from Mr. Williams. Then
stepping into the bed chamber of Leo
Payne, a roomer, the robber seized a
pair of trousers, walked out onto a
balcony and turned the pockets inside
out, the search netting hirti in the
ncighboruood cf $14. The criminal
then robbed another house in the next
block owned by B. D. S'auton, but
while at work was observed. Mrs.
Stanton saw the man and screamed.
Mr. Staton fired at the fleeing man,
who is believed to be a negro, although
this identification was uncertain in the
moonlight. Blood hounds may be se
cured, in effort to capture the culprit.

where products are mostly consum
