presumably for a joke, sent la an

FIREWORKS TOMGIIT. I
This evening at the park there will
be a magnificent display of fireworks
given by the Paine Fireworks com
pany and put on at a cost of $1,100.
A program of 75 numbers has been
prepared and while it is being given
the display will be interspersed with
music by the Crescent band.
East Moline and Silvis observed the
day in a quiet manner. There was
no general celebration, but several
ball games between leading amateur
teams promised to attract large num
bers. The East Moline team was
scheduled to play the Moline Athletics
on the former's diamond and Water
town to play a doubleheader with Sil
vis at Silvis. The Moline Olympic
j and the Moline Tigers played at
I Browning field.
In Watertown there was a picnic on
the hospital grounds. - The program
Included a ball game between the in
stitution's team and the Plow Citys,
a concert program by the East Moline
band and track events of various de
scriptions. In the evening there will
East Moline' s Juvenile 'Popula
tion Jumps 200 Per Cent
in Two Years.
That the city of East Moline is
growing is amply shown by the returns
from the scho01 census just completed
by Mrs. S. A. Cartwright. The total
number of children under 21 now is
1,400, against a total of 1,09 j a year
ago, the increase being over 300.
Nearly half of the children now, as
then, are under C years of age, show
ing that the growth of the city is not
entirely due to influx of new families.
Mrs. Cartwrlght's figures for ,this
year show 392 males and 408 females
of school age. The males under 21
total 699 and the females 707. This
shows that COG children are under
Two years ago the East Moline
school census showed a total of COO
children, the increase during tne peri
od being 200 per cent.

SUSPEN D 0RD NANCE
TO AID CELEBRATION
Firecrackers, fireballs and rockets
were lawfully used in the celebration
of the Fourth today by virtue of a
suspension of the city ordinance at a
precial meeting of the commission for
this purpose. The city ordinance pro
hibits the use of all fireworks except
when its provisions are suspended by
spec'ai action of the council or com
mission. No cannon, cannon crack
ers, dynamite crackers or pistols were
tolerated, the police making every ef
fort to see that these dangerous de
vices were barred from t,he city.

secured, judging by the disposition
shown yesterday afternoon at the reg
ular weeklv meeting at the Moline
club. So bright are ic prospects t-t
Chairman Lourie was instructed to
proceed in securing a paid secretary,
working in conjunction with a commit
tee representing the retail merchants.

tate men and. bankers.
About $7,000 a yeaT to maintain the
organization is in sight. The Real Es

a year, the retail merchants $l,500,"the
Moline club $1,500, the bankers $500
and the manufacturers $3,000. ' The
principal aim of ihe comm,ittee-for the
persent will be to secure additional
homos for the people.
Kr.XDS FOR BUILDERS.
To this end the Home Building &
Loan association will be revived to
provide funds to be loaned on easy
terms to those desiring to build. Man
ufacturers are expected to loan the as
sociation $100,000 and an effort will be
made to sell $200,000 worth of stock.
During the meeting members subscrib
ed for $14,000 worth of stock.
A resolution was adopted by the
committee calling upon the people to
support a bond issue of $30,000 to mod
ernize the fire department, this stand
being taken as a result of the move on
the part of the city commission to cut
down the budget 11 per cent to the
detriment of the service in fire and po
lice departments. Sufficient funds not
being available to make Improvements
needed to ut'lize the added , facilities
given by the waterworks extent-Ions,
the Creater Moline committee went .on
record as favoring borrowing funds in
order to at once put the department on
a modern basis.
H. W. Cooper resigned as a member
of the committee and George AV. Mc
Master was named to succeed him.

sues Program for Second An
Revived interest in the temperance
fight since the enactment of the woman
suffrage law in Illinois leads friends
of prohibition in the city to predict
that the saloon will be voted out when
the local option question again comes
before the voters, which probably will
be next spring. The last time this sub
ject was voted on the saloon won by
only 400 votes and Rev. A. F. Berg
strom, who is active in the Scandina
vian Temperance union, predicts that
his organizaUon alone will furnish
more than eaough new votes against
the saloon at the next election to put
it out of business.

SUNDAY IS RUMOR
East Moline Thirst Parlors
Tipped That There Is to ,
Be 'a Change. ' .
The tip has gone out that east Mo
line thirst parlors will no longer be
permitted to do business on Sunday.
For some time the damp suburb has
been an oasis for the dry ones in Mo
line, Rock Island and surrounding ter
ritory on Sundays. .Formerly tha 18
saloons were required to close at 7
p. m., but gradually the hour was
made later till finally they were oper
ating the same on Sunday'as on any
ether day. Efforts of the police were
directed to regulation instead, of sup
pression. 1 It is estimated that on an
avefage $2,000 has .bee", taken ' over
the bar on' Sunday by East Moline sa
NO REPORT MADE ON
It may be a week before Dr. A. T,
Leipold, county physician, is '.jady to
announce the result, of the autopsy on
the remains of John Waidelich. the
butcher who died Sunday night, appar-
ently from the effects of the heat. The
presumption is that the doctor is hav
jng a chemical examination made
which will require some time. The in
vestigation is being made at the re
quest of Mrs. Waidelich. No verdist
will be returned by the coroner's jury
till after the physician makes his re
port. BITING DOG VICIOUS?
NO; HUNGRY, PERHAPS
When a dog bites you, he is not ne
cessarily vicious. He may be hungry.
That seems to have been the view
tak3n by a jury which heard the case
against Bud Woodruff in East Moline.
H. W. Lester was the. complaining
witness and claimed that Woodruff's
dog had bitten him. Failure of the
state to make the dog's motive clear
resulted in the acquittal of the ac
cused. Mr. Woodruff thereupon sent
the animal to a brother in South Da
kota, where it will get a change of
HOLDS MAN HAS RIGHT
TO WHIP OWN HORSE
Because a horse belonged to him.
Tom Bulas thought he had a right to
whip it as much as he pleased. This,
at any rate, was the defense he put
up in Judge A. S. Cartwright's court
in East Moline when arraigned yes
terday for cruelty to animals. The de
fense was held insufficient by tha
court and the justice put on a fine
of $13.05 and ordered Tom, who has
been doing an express business, to
betake h'mself to other fields.
EAST MOLINE PLANS NIGHT
SCHOOL FOR FOREIGNERS
Aware of the advisability of giving
ambitious foreign immigrants every
chance te become full fledged Ameri
can citizens, a number of prominent
East Moliners have taken up the mat
ter of providing facilities for the teach
ing of English to those anxious to
learn the language. It is proposed to
establish a night school in one of the
public school buildings to teach read
ing and writing. It is possible that
other branches may be taken up if
there is need for them.
How thieves got Into the home of
Dr. F. H. Gardener, from which $12
worth of jewelry was taken, is still
puzzling the police after three days.
The house was entered Tuesday night
while the family was asleep. No doors
w'ere forced open and tie windows
were all fastened from the inside.
Contents of drossers and other recep
tacles were spilled about the floors,
but little of value was taken.
Directors of the Manufacturers'
State bank of East Moline have de
clared a 3 per cent semi-annual divi
dend and added a nice sum to the sur
plus fund. This bank is but three
years old and last January a 2 per

Fish are more plentiful in the Mo
