Moline police arrested another "dip"
this morning on Fourth avenue pear
! the corner of Fourteenth street, when
he was caught in an effort to relieve a
! local citi::eu of -his diamond stick-pin.
There was another man in company
with the "dip" when arrested but the
police do not believe lie is in any way
connected with the attempted robbery.
The man was under the influence of
i liquor when arrested. The city is
now n to be overrun with tramps and
e police are of the opinion that the
two arrested today are of this class.
The two men went up to a Moiine
citizen and asked him for money. The
citizen happened to be hard of hear
ing and bent his-head forward in an
effort to catch the hobo's words. One
of tho two men then succeeded in tak
ing his tie pin. but another citir.en
standing nearby witnessed the act and
called a policeman.
At the police station both men gave
the name of John Doe, and the police
have, them registered as John Doe No.
1 and John Doe No. '2.
A short time later another tramp
was arrested at Thirteenth street and
Fourth avenue. He told the policeman
who made the arrest that he had had
nothing to eat for three days. He
was taken to the police station and
given a hearty feed.
Cases of the pickpockets will come
up for a hearing in court tomorrow.

compared with the same month in
1013, treasury officials today found
some comfort in figures showing re
cent exports of grain and cotton.
There was encouragement, too, in the
announcement that for September the
ordinary internal revenue receipts
were almost $G,000,000 above those
for last September, although this in
crease is said to be due to unusual
causes not likely to figure in future
D?spite the help from increased in
ternal revenue the total receipts for
the month from all sources were near
ly $6,000,000 under last September,
and the excess of disbursements for
the month was nearly $9,500,000, while
in-September, 1913. thu excess of dis
bursements was about $4,000,000.
.During the week ending yesterday
oS.lll bales of cotton were exported,
and yesterday's grain exports aggre
gated 1. 9110,000 bushels.
