A Rock Island Merchant Under a
Harvey Klngftbnry and the Often-e
At rtbnted to Him-Tke Two
Midrn of the ae.
A warrant was issued by Magistrate
Wivill this afternoon on complaint of
Mrs. Mary Ludkie living on Twenty-second
street between Third and Fourth av-.
enues, for the arrest of Harvev Kings
bury, charging him with assault upon the
person of her 9-year old daughter Eunice,
who has been employed for sometime
past about the store of Kingsbury & Son,
1305 "Second avenue.
Mrs. Ludkie. the mother of the child,
was seen soon after making her sworn
charge by an Argcs reporter, to whom
she related the story of the alleged as
sault, Iwhich Is substantially as fols
lows: "My little girl is nine years old.
About two weeks ago I sent her to Kings
bury's store for some writing paper, and
when ske returned home she had a couple
of lead pencils which she said the gentle
man there had given her. and a few days
later we had use for an ink-stand, and as
we had none in the house, I told her that
perhaps the gentleman who gave her the
pencils would lend her one. Sbe went
to the store and returned with one which
she said he had given her. She also had
a rubber ball which she said he had given
her 10 cents to go into the other store and
buy for herself. Further, she said, that
sbe had helped him about the store, and
that she was going back to help again.
"We are poor people," continued Mrs.
Ludkie, "and so I told her she could go
back and assist him at the store. This
she did for stveral days, each day bring
ing home something be had given her.
They are all in that box on the table said
Mrs. Ludkie, pointing to a box contain
ing a lot of picture mouldings, pens, pen
cils, notebooks, etc., which was on the
table near by. "She also asked my per
mission to stay away to dinner, saying
that Mr. Kingsbury would furnish it,'
continued the mother, "and to this I also
consented, and later she did net come
home to supper and used to stay at the
store until 8 o'clock in the evening. One
evening she came home and said that Mr.
Kings-bury did not want her to come, and
that be had taken her in the bick room
and pinched her arm. This, continued
Mrs. Ludkie, was the first intimation I
had that anything was wrong, and as my
uspicions were aroused. I Questioned
her closer and foand that he had pulled
her on his lap, kissed her and had taken
mproptr liberties with her. This occur
red on June 1. I went to Mr. Kingsbury
this morning," said Mrs. Ludkie, in con
clusion, "and told him that I intended to
have him arrested, and he said that if I
did he would have my little girl arrested
for stealing, but she has stole nothing,
and I intend to prosecute him."
Mr. Kingsbury was seen by an Akgcs
representative this afternoon .
"The whole affair is simply an effort
to smut me, he said. "It looks to me
very much like a species of blackmail.
The charges are aa false as they are
shocking, and I think nothing further
will come of them, in fact the matter is
as much as setlled now." Mr. Kingsbury
declined to make any further statement of
the case, but States Attorney.M.M. Stur
geon, speaking for him, said: "There is
nothing whatever in the case. Mr.
Kingsbury acknowledges that be kissed
the girl a couple of times as he might any
child, that he might take a liking to. but
anything about his doing anything crim
inal is bosh and ne one will believe it."

"Yea. we have teen in Rock Island
almost a yer when I say we have been '
here a year, I mean that nearly that time
has elapsed since we decided to locate
here and I can assure you we are pleased
beyond measure with the city and its
people. Our success has exceeded our
most sanguine anticipations, and we had
confidence in Rock Island from the first,
too . "
The speaker was E. I. Leveen. of tbe
London Clothing company. He had
been conversing with an Argcs reporter
on the general prosperity of Rock, Island
and the various causes to which such a
condition might readily be attributed.
"Has it pa d you to do such extensive
advertising?" the reporter continued:
"Yes indeed," was Mr. Leveen's reply.
"I think the man that does not get his
name before the public and keep it there,
gets left in the commercial race. You
can pick out all along the way the 'r.cn
advertisers.' Advertising certainly ways
providing you do just as you advertise.
"We havejfeit pretty well satisfied with
all of our advertisements, but none of
them could hold a candle to our people's
'benefit sale,' beginning tomorrow, (Sat
urday,) lasting only one week."
'Our idea has always been to get our
selves talked about, and we have struck
the nail squarely on the head at last. As
our spring season has been a success far
beyond our expectations, we have made
up our minds to give a business reception
and to present to each customer buying a
suit during the 'benefit sale,' a substan
tial souvenir. Then we began to study
what to give so that all could appreciate
the gift. It finally struck us that it would
be a sensation to make every customer
buying a suit, (no matter what price ) a
present of a Ehle's nestable dinner pail."
"This pail consists of four separate
apartments which close firmly; nothing
can be spilled when the pail is upset.
When the pail is empty it can be nested
small enough to carry it in a coat pocket,
it being something entirely new. A din
ner carried in one of these pails will keep
fresh and cool."
"And where does your profit come in
by giving way such expensive presents
with f 2 or $3 man's suit." was asked by
"Well, in the first place the most
of our trade buy a finer grade of goods;
then we figure that it will pay us
in the end if we give a few days' profits
away during the year, particularly since
this is our first year here, and then our
names, the 'London Clothing Company.'
is engraved on the lid cf the pail, 60 you
see our name is always before tbe lady
at borne when she fixes the dinner, and
in tbe workshop, office cr picnic when
tbe man lunches. I can assure you the
dinner will taste much better if carried in
one of our nestable dinner pails and
with a London suit on."
The Library Room.
At last night's special meeting of the
Rock Island public library board to con
sider the matter of new rooms, the special
committee composed of Messrs. South
well, Pleasants and Johnston, submitted
formal proposals from Mitchell & Lynde
and the Young Men's Christian associa
tion, and afterwards an informal pro
posal was made by Messrs. Krell & Math
and a verbal proposition by John Bengs
ton was submitted by Rev. R. F. Sweet.
The various offers were discused and an
idea obtained as to the requirements of
floor space, light and pleasantness of ac
cess. The Mitchell & Lynde building,
with alterations, was considered to best
meet tbe requirements of the library, and
accordingly the committee on new quar
ters was giyen authority to effect a lease
provided a desired concession is made.
The plan is to take the entire north end
of the second floor of the building from
east to west, throwing into one large
apartment all tbe rooms.

The AroCs fails to comprehend why
the mayor should object to designating a
voting place in each ward as in all other
elections, and it cannot see what there is
to be gained bv having three over one.
The idea of abolishing the plan of con
centrating the votes at one place, was not
S3 much in the interest cf convenience to
the yoters who no doubt would be wiU
ling to discommode themselves somewhat
if in the interests of ecoaomy as in the
hope of securing the legitiiate and legal
vote only. This cannot be acsomplished
through the medium of three vot
ing placts any more than one, un
less more than the usual number
of judges were on daty at each
place, and in such an event they might as
well remain at their rtspective voting
places. What tbe teop!e want is a fair
and honest vote and this can only be had
by registration as in other elections, and
through the customary methods of a vot
