the body of Alice May Iglehart, 1327
Fifth-and-cne-half avenue, was found

On a table near the body was found
the following brief note:

The body was found
ly after 5 o'clock this morning by her i .
brother-in-law, U. II. Knauel, who was
returning home from work. Mr. j
Kcauel delected a strong oder of gas
while attempting to enter the rear
door, but thought that Fome of the
family had carelessly left one of the j
ttove Jets open and paid no particular j
aeniloa to It.
Finding the rear door locked, how
ever, he aroused his wife and called
her attention to the odor. Airs.
Knauel Immediately started an In

The woman before committing her
act had opened one of the doors of
the kub range and placed a pillow on

this pillow and, opening her mouth
no as to receive the full flow of the
gas, had turned on the jots. She had

The reason for the deed remains a
mystery. All day yesterday she had
ben with one of her si3tcrs and ap
parently been feeling entirely well.
She had at no time given any hint that
the was planning the de-d. It is plaiu,
hewever, that she had carefully
planned the rash act. Beside the note

IV. EXTENSION OF WATERMAJNS.
If the people desire that those who join them from contiguous territory
become so impressed with the disposition on the pari of the city to accord
to them the conveniences of the municipality that others will follow suit and
become part and parcel of Rock Island, they must give their sanction cheer
fully to the extension of the advantages That belong to the municipality. It
is for the purpose of giving water to the residents of the new territory that
the people are asked to approve a bond issue of $17,COO in eight-year bonds
at the special election Sept. 11, and it is important to s ate in this connec
tion that the bonds contemplated for this improvement, like .those for the
standpipe, do not involve a single cent of additional taxation on the part
of She property holders of Rock Island.
The bonds, if approved, are to be charged against the waterworks fund
specifically and are to be paid in principal and interest out of the revenue
of that department. The same course of action that has been pursued here
tofore in water mains extensions and improvements is to be adop.ed. The
city is to borrow the money to make the extensions, as it has often done in
the past, but under the commission form of government It is necessary that
a!l bonding propositions go before the people for their approval. Taxes will
not be increased in the least by reason of this issue. They are waterworks
bonds payable out of the funds of the
there la to it.
The bonds are desired for the purpose cf extending watermains1 along
Eighteenth avenue from Twenty-fourth to Fifteenth sireet and into the new
I territory. In other words, it is proposed to construct leads out of the funds
of the waterworks department for thebenefit of the new territory so far as
fire protection is concerned, and those who are to enjsy the benefits for pri
vate consumption or use will be taxed for the connecting laterals, as is the
case all over the city.
Neither the people residing on the bluff nor of he new territory are to
have any advantage other than the people in the entire city have or en any
other basis than that which applies to all. They wilt have the means of
protection in a general sense as is the case in the city generally, but those
who desire to jap the mains will be obliged to pay both for the connection
and the use of water, as is the case in other parts of town.
In other words, the city Is merely giving the same protection to the
new-comers that i: does to all sections of the city and doing it out of the
funds of the waterworks department, and offering to them the same oppor
tunities that are accorded other sections of the ci"y, to have pipes run into
their homes at their own exdense and pay for the supply that the city
The proposition is so reasonable, so just and fair, that It does not seem
possible that a single citizen of Rock Island can fail to vote for it, when it
; is thoroughly understood and the public
involve additional taxation, but, on the
material growth of the city.

STILL BE USED
Regulations For Fishing in Rock

Been Feared. .
Fishing with trot-line will not be pro

make Rock river a fish preserve. This
is definitely stated by E. E. McDole,
game and fish warden, who consulted
his superiors in regard to the matter. !
i It has been decided that the term
"hand line, used in describing the
devices which may be employed in
the taking of fish in the stream, may
properly include the trot-line. How
ever, in fishing with trot-line the de
partment will insist that only fish
above the minimum size prescribed
by law be taken and no lines can be
placed immediately below dams. The
practice of snagging, employed espe

interfered with. Nets of all ' kinds

THE MILE TRACK
Endicott Circles Course in 53
Seconds, Lowering Barney
OTHER DRIVERS SHINE
Crowd of 4,000 Well Pleased With the
Exhibition Another Meet An
nounced for Sept 21.
Four Iowa state auto records for a
circular track fell at the speed ex
hibition at the Davenport mile track
yesterday, according to the announce
ment made by official in charge of
the contests. "Wild Bill" Endicott
in his Simplex Six cut Barney Old-
field's time for a mile five second,
making the circuit in 53 second fiat.
In the 300 cubic inch piston class the
mark was lowered from .1:07 1-5 to
58 2-5; in the 4o0 inch class from
1:031-5 to 58 4-5, and in the 600 class
from 1:02 to 55 4-5.
With such performances as these
the crowd of 4,000, many from 50
miles or more away, was well pleased.
The program of eight events was run
off with dispatch. There were no tire
some waits and no mishaps worth the
name. The track was in good shape,
barring the inevitable dust at the
KEEP CROWD O.V EDGE.
Louis Disbrow,, the circular track
star, and Endicott were the big at
tractions and their work kept the
crowd on edge. Whenever they wer-
matched against each other there was
sure to be a good contest. One of the
features in which they met was the
three-mile novelty. At the end of the
second lap they stopped in front of
the judge's stand and changed a wheel
on each machine. Endicott's crew
accomplished the task in 23 3-4 sec
onds, his best record for the perform
ance being 15 4-5 seconds.
In the time tests which opened the
program Louis lieinemann in his Bul
let made the distarce in 58 2-5 in the
300-inch class, lowering the mark
made by George Clark at Sioux City
by nine seconds. Driving his Tornado
Eddie Ilea me, in the 450 class, set a
mark of 58 4-5, while Endicott in his
Simplex Six lowered the time for the
6C0 class to 55 4-5.
Disbrow appeared on the track in
the Jay-Eye-See, a 290 horsepower tor
pedo shaped car with which he broke
records on the beach recently. It was
too cumbersome to take the turns on
the small track with ease, but did the
mile in 56 2-5.
In the races the three-miie contest
for 231 to 300 cubic inch pistons,
Heinemann in- the Case Bullet won
in 3:29, H. Ulbricht in the Pirate
being second and F. E. Horey in the
In the five-mile race for the 450-inch
class Disbrow won, with lieinemann
second. The Pirate went out in the
second lap. The time was 5:38.
THH CHIEF CONTEST.
The five-mile free-for-all proved the
best contested of all. Disbrow in his
Simplex and Endicott in his Case
Special ran neck and neck, the former
winning by half a length in 5:30 2-5.
In the last event, also five miles,
Disbrow did not enter and Endicott
won with ease from Ulbricht and
The. Davenport Automobile club. It
was announced, will hold a champion
ship meet on the mile track Sept. 21,
when it is expected there will be
another good array of talent on hand
to compete for the prises.

Muscatine, Iowa, Sept. 2. H. E.
Winters and John Kllcorn, owners of
the steamer Krontenac and barge Mis
sissippi, freed in bond or $1,000 each,
are to have a hearing before Judge
J. C. Coster here on a charge of Il
legally selling liquor.
Intoxicating liquors to the value pf
almost $1,000 were secured in a spec
tacular raid made upon the Frontenac
and Mississippi when local officers
boarded the pleasure craft and con
fiscated 168 cases of beer as the boat
lay at anchor at the local wharf on
Saturday evening previous to taking
out a "wet" excursion from Muscatine.
The raid and resultant seizure of the
liquor brings into issue a mooted law
point, being that as to the right to Bell
liquors on federal waters and the right
of the state to interfere with such
sale. The raid followed the filing of
information before Judge Coster in
which the boat was claimed to be a
liquor nuisance and the management
charged with the illegal sale of liquor.
The warrant was served by Constable
II. Haney, who was assisted In the
seizure by members of the local police
! department. The action was prompt

The raid which was made upon the
craft was as spectacular as it was unex

stable Haney unexpectedly advanced
'upon the boat shortly before 6 o'clock
and took the crew unawares. Upon
stepping aboard the officers served the
warrant and at once proceeded to lo
cate the wet goods. Two express
wagons had already been pressed Into
service and three hours passed before
the countless number of cases had
teen removed from the great refrig
erators on the palatial barge.
No opposition was made to the move
of the lor-a!
officers by members of

by the officers when their appearance
was noted was to station one of their
