Many Peddle to Crowds.
Eight men took out licenses at $3
each to peddle to the circus crowds
Thursday. Mcst inf them sold toy bal

seem to demand large quantities. One
sold nothing but chewing gum.
CLAIMS DIP GOT
HIS ROLUJF S90
Stranger One of Half a Dozen
Victimized by Light Fin
Half a dozen cases In which strang
ers here for the circus Thursday were
robbed by pickpockets have come to
the notice of the police. In no case
was a formal complaint laid in and
consequently no names are obtainable.
One man claimed to have been robbed
of $9. Four others, one of whom was
from New Windsor and another from
Viola, lost In the aggregate $25.
While the crowd was returning to
the city at night the trolley of a
Prospect park car -came off and in the
dark a "dip" attempted to extract the
roll of another man. The victim was
on the look out, however, and he
grapppled with the thief, who escaped
after a struggle, getting away with $5.
Only three were arrested for in
toxication and they were fined $2.80
each. The city police were compli
mented by the show management on
the order that was maintained.
A report that five horses had suc
cumbed to the heat was denied by the
show people, who claimed the only
mishap among their anima'.s hap
pened to an elephant, which stepped
on a big spike. A large crowd watch
ed the veterinarian with the show
chloroform the beast, extract the
spike and dress the wound.
Midland Motor company, which took!
place before O. U. Henry, referee in
bankruptcy at Peoria several days
ago, will probably be contested by
certain creditors, claiming that the
election was made unfairly, in that
officials of the company had furnished
to Attorney Charles R. Brown names
of all the creditors in order to give
them voting strength and swing the
election as they would want it. The
matter will be threshed out before
THE USE OF WATER
People to Blame for Low Pres
sure in City Mains, Say
ALLISON AGAIN IS
CONFINED IN CELL
Man Arrested Here After Es
cape from Michigan Prison
Held in South Bend.
Trustee for Midland Company.
Attorney George W. Wood of Mo
line today announced that the election
of J. H. McCollough as trustee of the
17 f CI 111
Commissioner L. O. Jahns, who
has charge of the water department,
today issued a statement In answer to
critics who aver that the voting of
a bond issue of $164,000 by the peo
ple has not led to the expected im
provement in the service. It is
claimed that, particularly during the
heated term, it has often been found
impossible to sprinkle lawns because
of lack of pressure in the downtown
section, while on the bluff the people
have been left without water enough
for domestic purposes.
Mr. Jahns contends that the city
has one of the best water systems
that can be devised and that its ca
pacity is sufficient for all reasonable
demands. The trouble is, in his esti
mation, that the people are using
about -twice as much water as they
actually need. Leakage and other
forms of waste are blamed. Of late
the department has been pumping 5,
000,000 gallons daily, about 1.000 gal
lons for each family. Mr. Jahns says
that with reasonable consumption the
department as at present constituted
would meet every demand.
"Yock" Allison, whose carrer ha
onen Deen exploited in local news
papers, is again under arrest at South
Bend, Ind., charged with violation of
his parole from the Jackson, Mich.,
prison. Allison claims he has led a
straight life since he was given, a con
ditional pardon by Governor Warner
Rome years ago. In what manner he
has broken the terms of his parole he
does not know, he says.
Allison, it will be recalled, escaped
from the Jackson prison, where he was
serving a term for participating In the
robbing of a bank at Richland, in that
state. He came to Moline and went to
work in a printing ofWgN Two years
later, after he bad varied and was
the father of a little xrl, his identity
was discovered and he was rearrest
ed. His good behavior while at lib
erty was taken into consideration and
after serving about a year longer he
was given the conditional pardon, the
terms of which the Michigan author
ities say he has violated.
Allison says he has been hounded
by the police wherever he has gone
and has been repeatedly thrown into
prison without any particular charge
having been filed against him.

TO CLOSE SUNDAYS
At the regular weekly meeting of
the Greater Moline committee held at
noon today, attention of the commit
tee was called by downtown clothing
and shoe merchants to the practice of
dealers located in the outlying dis
tricts in keeping their places of busi
ness open on Sundays. As a means
to eliminate this alleged unfairness,
the committee will ask the city com
mission to draw up an ordinance pro
viding for the closing on Sunday of
all business houses other than drug
stores, cigar stores, confectioneries
and similar lines. The city of Spring
field has such an ordinance, which is
held to be constitutional.
The committee will start action to
have the bridge at Colona spanning
Rock river erected, and to this end
will systematically canvass residents
of the county and have theai bring
pressure to bear with the supervisors.
McHenry county recently attempted
to mandamus Rock Island county for

bridge, but the supervisors stated that
they had no money and nothing has
