EAST MOLINE PLANS
BIG BASEBALL DAY
The East ' Moline Baseball associa
tion is making extensive plans for the
baseball tournament to be held Aug.
SO, 31 and Sept. 1. An effort is being
made to have teams from Davenport,
Watertown and Moline participate. Al
ready the Brunswicks of Davenport
have signified' their willingness to take
part: In all probabilities the Moline
Tigers will, be secured as the star at
tractions, since there is a keen rivalry
between that pine and the East Moltnt
diamond artists. Two games have been
plaved between the.tv.o teams this
reason resulting in a victory apiece.

Chicago, Aug. 8. Cardinal Gibbons
arrived today enroute to Milwaukee,
where he will preside over the meeting
of the Federated Catholic society. "1
am growing old and these trips are a
trifle hard on an old man,' said the
cardinal, after greeting Archbishop
Quigley, Bishop Dunne of Peoria, and
Eisliop O'Connoll of Richmond, Va.
who met him at the station and in
formed him it, was reported he would
speak at Milwaukee.
"Will you speak of woman's suf
frage?" he was asked.
"I have always opposed it," said
Gibbons. "I think women would do
better to make good mothers than
i politicians, but suffrage is certain
come to women."

STATUS OF COKE BINS
City Attorney Johnston has investi
gated the legal status of what consti
tutes a coke bin, and has notified Com
missioner Eastman that any structure
of four walls, whether it has a roof or
not, is a "building." Hence, the action
of the Moline Plow company in erect
ing coke bins inside the fire limits
without first obtaining permission of
the council, a move opposed by prop
erty owners in that vicinity, which is
located near the Burlington, tracks at
the plant, Eeems to be contrary to au
thority. The building ordinance spe
cifically 6ays that "no wooden build
ing shall be erected within the fire lim
its except as herein provided," whicn
is afterward defined to mean by con
sent of the council. No consent has
yet been obtained, but the lumber for
the buildings is on the ground, and it
looks as if the bins were going to be
put up anyway.

TO BE SCENIC ROAD
The board of local improvements has
finally decided to grade 11 tilocks on
Nineteenth s.tre, establish a storm
drain, and eventually turn the thor
oughfare into a regular ECenic drive,
a move that will be welcome to most
of the property owners in that neigh
borhood. The estimates for grading
have been given at $11,290, and $10,031
for the drain, by the city engineer, in
addition to which there will have to
be some allowance for condemnation
proceedings, making the total a rather
expensive item, but the end justifies
the cost, it is believed. From Twelfth
to Twenty-third avenues will be the
district. Tuesday, Aug, .19, at lCf a. m.,
has been set by the board for hearing
any objections, but f Is not anticipat
ed that there will be many because of
the ultimate desirability of tfte scheme.
