IS BEATTY IMPLICATED?
Authorities Inclined to Belief Moline
Man Under Indictment at Peoria
Sheriff O. L. Bruner returned last
evening from uaiesburg witn tne au
tomobile of Mike Fitzgibbons, Cordova
farmer, which was stolen some six
weeks ago from in front of the rA. Mc
.Mahon saloon on Eighteenth street,
between First and Second avenues.
Local authorities are inclined to the
belief that Herbert Beatty, Moline. w ho
is under indictment at Peoria for the
theft of the automobile of Louts M.
Hines, county treasurer, is implicated
in the robbery and is the 'mysterious
stranger" whom Fitzgibbons left in the
The tip came to Sheriff Bruner that
the missing car was In Galesburg. It
was located in a garage in that city.
The machine had been purchased from
a "stranger" some weeks ago. It was
! sadly in need of tires and other repaiVs
land these had been put on the ma
RAIM 'chine. Sheriff Bruner paid for them
I and the machine was turned over to I
ihim and Mr. Fitzgibbons In turn re
munerated the sheriff.
1 " Beatty Guilty l
The authorities have been trying to
get a line on the man whom Fitzgib
bons left in his car when he went into
the McMahon saloon to secure a bonds
man after his arrest for not having
the lights on his auto burning. Al
though it has not yet been clearly es
tablished, it is believed that Beatty Is
the man whom Fitzgibbons gave a ride
from Mollne. It is thought he drove
to Galesburg, sold the car, pulled ofT
another theft there and then went to
Peoria, where he proceeded to get ar
rested for the stealing of an automo
bile from the county treasurer.
Whether fitzgibbons will prosecute
Heatty or not is a question, as the j
farmer seems satisfied to get his ma- j
chine back again.

IS PLAN TO SECURE FOOD
i ixjndon. Aug. 2b. Proposals tnat
golf courses, cricket and football fields
for raising crops during
! war time have been reaching the war
; Walton-Heath Golf
secretary of the

j points out that there are at least 2.0U0
j goif courses in the country which could
spare some if not considerable land
for cultivation. The Walton-Heath club
12 acres under cultivation, and ita sec
rptarv believes that if other clubs, in
cludine cricket and football oreanlza-
tions. would do the same, the scheme
would provide employment for thous
ands of unskilled workers, and add
considerably to the nation's food sup
ply. In these days of self-sacrifice no one
appears to be wanting to enjoy him
self on the golf links. They are gen
erally deserted, and probably will be
to the end of the war. Ij. B. Gulllch,
secretary of the Golfers' club, lias sug
gested that the hundreds of the club
houses should be offered to the mili
tary authorities for use as hospitals.
This would provide 25.000 beds, and
I j the clubhouse staff would be availably
v i for enolriner and attendance.
Another of Mr. Gullich's proposalg is
using the 20,000 caddies who are now
idle to help farmers get In the har
vest. The Purple Cross, says a London
cable, is to be organized to supple

The humane mission of the new or

wounded horses on the various battle

ery and to rescue such as are only
slightly wounded or are. wandering
riderless. Men only are to be engaged
in this work, and the humane society
