Andrew Johnson acted as chairman

f nance and organization were named,
those on the former be.ng Frank
Young. Ed. Weinert and Uus Shaffer
and on the Utter. Chris Koeliler.
rharles GelIer. Jr., and Nicholas
Harry M. McCaskrln. who !
as leral advisor for the objectors, ad
dressed the fathering. He declared
that he had Investigated the names on
t!ie annexation petitions and had
found they conta'ned the signatures of
wma residents who had not willingly
f nd and to houi the quegtfon In-
rrHred bad not been clearly explained.
I'm stated 'that the lir of name would
hare to be checked in order to ascer
tain if a clear majority of both prop
erty oners and residents of the. dis
trict annexed, had b--n secured. He
alo tnectloned the fact that it would
be absolutely necessary to have an
abstract mad of the property. He
ald canvassers would have to person-
1 sheeted that August Fchtnid. assessor
of South Rock Island township, should
assist In the work, because of his
familiarity with ' tax payers of that
section. Mr. McCaskrln touched upon
the matter of finances and aald that
it would take at least $500 if the mat.
ter was carried Into the court, $100 of
which has already been raised. He
announced that If the objectors did not
care to continue the content, he would
refund whatever portion of his retain
er fee they suggested.
Court Decision Cited.
Decision of the Illinois supreme
court on an annexation case from Pe
oria county where no man's land, a
strip of territory between Peoria and
South Peoria has been added to the
Distillery city, and then rejected, was
cited by II. A. St-jwart of Moline. He
declared the burden of proof would
be on the city If quo warranto pro
ceedings were started here and that
it would be up to Rock Island to show,
not by the petitions in the case but by
an actual canvass that a majority of
both residents and property owners In
the district annexed had signed.- He
also mentioned a case in May wood
where an annexation project In which
he w as interested as an attorney, was
August Schmld claimed that he had
Investigated the annexation petitions
and was acquainted with the signa
tures of South Rock Island people and
declared that some of the names were
evidently signed by other parties.
It was suggested by Thomas Dough
erty that a financial canvass should
not be attempted until the abstract of
property was examined. He declared
that if a canvass would show that a
majority has signed the petitions, it
would be useless to carry the matter
into the courts. Therefore Chairman
Johnson decided to delay, the money
question until the mass meeting.

lected yesterday by the state bank

For ten years the Fisk & Loosley Co.
has been buying from Eisinger & Des

many of the bargains that have helped
us keep the cost of living down, here in
Moline. Whenever there was a fire, or
a flood, or a bankrupt sale, or anything
else that made genuine bargains, Eisinger

their ready money into the goods. They
would buy anything that was cheap, for
cash, and we shared in their bargain
finds. December 24th, they wrote us
that they had dissolved partnership, were
selling out their stock at and below cost
to them, and would give us our pick.

found it just as they said. It was, indeed,
a rare bargain chance.

day morning, and until sold, we give our
customers these Chicago bargains the
same way we got them cheap indeed.

TELLS HOW PRIZE
CORN WAS GROWN
William A. Curtis, Winner in
Bank Contest, Gives Inter
William A. Curtis, 19-year-old Rey
nolds boy, who won first prize in the
corn contest held by the German
Trust fc Savings bank, in an Interview
this morning, gave an interesting ac
count of his method of raising corn.
He stated that the corn was grown
on ground formerly used as a pasture,
composed of blue grass sod and that
no fertilizer was used. The ground
was plowed the first part of April and
was about four inches in depth. The
seed bed was prepared by being disced
twice and harrowed twice. The
variety of corn planted was Funk's
yellow dent and about 95 per cent
germinated ia the test. The corn was
planted May 25, About ZV Inches In
depth and three grains to a hilL
It was cultivated once right after
planting and harrowd twice before the
corn came .up. Oct. 10 the corn
bad reached such a stage that a mod
erate frost would not have injured it.
The crop was gathered on the fourth
and fifth of November. In regard to
rainfall he stated that the season was
considered fairly dry.
