I SUNDAY SHOOTING SCR A PE
Jena TrecUla Deliberately Maaats
Peter B rower Bertaae Traaale
Over a Trivial Affair.
Coal Valley indulged in a shooting
scrape yesterday vthicb. almost provea
more of a sensation than tbe quiet vil
lage could stand, especially on Sunday.
The disgraceful affair grew out of a most
trivial offense, too. John Tregloin had
sent his boy down to the lower end of
the street some distance from home, to
see if there were any chickens in his gar
den patch and he found a number tbeie.
which he promptly drove out. Among
the feathered trespassers were a number
belonging to Peter Brower who lives
near by, and who took offense at the in
dignity shown his fowls, and he became
foul with the boy who ran home, and
Brower followed, abusing him all the
way. The boy's father met him in the
yard, and after an exchange of courtesies
none too friendly, Browser struck Treg-
loin and threatened to kill his entire
family if they did not leave his
chickens alone. At this Treg
loin admonished bis wife to go
into the house and get his revolver
and, like an obedient spouse, she prompt
ly obeyed and handed it to her lord.
who took deliberate aim at Brower and
fired. The bullet took effect just below
the right eye and Brower fell, Tregloin Br
ing at his prostrate form three times, but
none of the shots took effect.
Both men were soon after arrested and
Brower was driven to Milan, where Dr.
Huyett extracted the ball, which was
from a twenty-two calibre revolver, and
there is no serious outcome apprehended.
The men will be tried today. Brower for
abusive and threatening language and as
sault, and Tregloin for attempt to mur
der. The sympathy of the people of Coal
Valley stems to be with Tregloin, though
be is condemned for resorting to such
murderous tactics and especially for Or-,
ing after tbe man had fallen. Tregloin
is a barber, owning small property.
which he gardens, though he is in the
main supported by the county. Brower
is an employe of the R. -I. & P. road.

SIlNKent Letter That Are Dieto Cnre-

Editor of the A Rons :
Hock Island, July 12. Tbe honorable
postmaster general asks tbe co-operation
of the public press in making tbe post
office department as perfect as possible.
tie refers in this connection particularly
to the vast number of letters sent to the
dead letter office. On a late circular he
asks all postmasters the cause of so many
deads and to suggest a remedy. It
was round that most of tbe "deads
came from two sources, "misdirected let
ters" and "transient with no forwarding
orders" and our remedy was to ask the
press to call the attention of tbe writing
public to tbe great importance of proper
ly directing letters, giving if possible
street and number.
It is found that many of the mistakes
in directing letters are made by business
men. Letters are mailed in this office 1
most daily directed to "St. Louis, Ind,"
"IndianapoliK, la. "Perry. Mason
& Co., Boston, 111.," etc When a
return card is on the envelope the sender
can be reached by telephone and the ad
dress made good. We receive letters di
rected to Deere & Co., Rock Island: D
M. Secbler, Rock Island; Dimock. Gould
& Co., Rock Island, and the Moline post
master sends us letters sent to Rock Is
land Plow Co., Moline: Geo. Wagner.
Moline; J. M. Buford, Moline, etc. The
above are only a sample of tbe mistakes.
All such mistakes are rectified bv the
postmaster when right towns and firms
can be found through directories and
commercial reports. But after all that a
great manv letters are left to be sent in
to tbe dead letter office.
Tbe drummers furnish a large part of
the "deads. I hey rush from town to
town with letters irj ing to keep up; fin a!
ly they skip a town on tbe route and
there the letters "stick" with no for
warding order, and are sent in "dead."
So, Mr. Editor, if you will from time
to time advise ynnr business men to mind
their P's and Q's. and vour traveling
friends to leave their forwarding orders,
tbe postal service will be blessed instead
of damned. Respectfully.
Howard Weixs, P. M.
A largely attended mass meeting was
held at the Grand opera house, Daven

reference to tbe recent unpopular nomi
nations of the so-called bar con vent' on of
tbe seventh judicial district. The state
ment of tbe chairman, W. D. Pa
teTson on taking the chair, voiced the sen
timents of the meeting. He said the
question for this meeting to determine is
whether a faithful, efficient and honors'
ble judiciary or a judiciary run by
clique of politicians shall be placed on
the bench. Speeches were made, ad
vancing the same line of thought by F.L.
Dodge, J. C. Bills, Fred Heinz. Gustave

nlutiocg were adopted, chief among
which were these:

All reports to the contrary notwith
standing negotiations are being very qui
etly made.and there is no doubt whatever
that tbe Holmes syndicate is determined
to supplant horse and mule power on its
tri-city lines with something more rapid
and more modern, and that at present
electricity is tbe plan under considera
tion. W. S. Elliott, representing the
S prague Electric Railway and Motor
company, of Chicago, spent Saturday in
the tri-cities investigating the various
lines of the Holmes system. He declined
to converse with an Allocs representative,
who sighted him on the street with Su
perintendent Schnitger.as to the purposes
of his mission further than to acknowK
edge that he was here by tbe authority of
Mr. Holmes, and to say that the lines in
Rock Island, Davenport and Moline were
in splendid shape for the introduction of
electricity as a motive power.
Tbe further fact that the Rock River and
Mississippi Power and Navigation com
pany has had several meetings lately and
figuring with Mr. Holmes, and that
Davis & Co., of Moline, are getting In
readiness to submit a proposition
strengthens the belief that tr ere will soon
be something of interest concerning our
street car system.

reason that tbe demand is acceded to is
that lust now there are not many ne

doubt find it fully as satisfactory as
waists for which yon have paid $1-75.
