That .there now exists in Rock Is
land an underground dance hall, enter
ed through a saloon, in which women
dance in the nude was the startling
statement made Sunday evening at the
Kirs: Baptist church in this city by
George W. Wood, special attorney for
the present grand jury and leader of
the fight against the saloon in this city
at the spring election. . He asserted
that the saloon in question is one of
those considered "swell'' and that the
existence of the dance hall is known of
by comparatively few. No further
directions for finding it were given.
Put $15 Each Into Fund.
Mr. Wood made additional state
ments regarding alleged bribery of
county officers by East. Moline saloon
keepers, to which he had previously re
ferred. "It is a well known fact," said
he, "that within the last two years it
was the practice of 17 of the 20 saloon
keepers of that city to meet once a
week and contribute $13 each, the fund
to be apportioned among certain coun
ty officials as bribe money."
