As stated in Saturday's Argus, Sheriff
C. D. Gordon spent Saturday in Moline
serving warrants on the unfortunate! of
that city accused of gambling. The Re
publican, describing the sheriff's official
visit to that city says-.
Sheriff Cyrus D. Gordon came up to
day and served notice on the Moline par
ties against whom complaint had been
lodgetl in the county court by Mrs. M. E.
Metzzar on the charge of keeping gam
bling' joints and gambling. To save
trouble and annoyance the sheriff also
brought along with him 23 bonds made
out in the sum of 920') each, the peisons
accused being required to give bail to
that amount or go to jaii. The interest
ed parties were consequently very busy
this afternoon setting their sureties, and
so f.r as we have learned none were so
friendless and unfortunate as to have to
accompany the offi -er to Rock Island.
The Hotel Keator constituted the sheriffs-
headquarters and for some hours present
ea quite an interesting scene. The bonds
require each of the parties to be in court
on July 13. when the hearing takes
place. The sheriff tried to serve notice
on Peter Schlueter, Jr., at the Model, and
quite an interesting time ensued while
Mr. bch.ueter was attempting to make
clear to the sheriff the fact that he was
not the Peter Schleuter. The sheriff
finally concluded to serve the notice
on Mr- Schlueter's father, whose given
name is also 1'eter.
There seems to be an error in the sup
position that information was lodged
against C. W. Johnson, of the McKinnie
block saloon, as a keeper. We are in
formed that it should have been William
Johnson, a moulder at Decre'a foundry.
It also transpires that Gus Jegur is the
"Gastave Signor" mentioned in the Rock
Island papers. A rumor has been start
ed that the warrants were not legally
made out, in that they failed to set forth
the offense of the persons accused. The
bond of the keepers of gambling houses
was placed at $300.
The Republican contains the following
also with reference to tte sensation:
The gambling sensation bris not subi
sided to any perceptible extent, and the
all-absorbiDg theme is still being discussed
promiscuously in all the barber shops,
saloons, lawyers' offices, on the street
corners, in fid it is on everybody's
tongue's end. The general impression
seems to prevail that if the names pub
.ished are all those against whom com
plaint is to be lodged, the detective
would have done well to have taken into
his confidence) some of the local officers.
As it now stands he has made up his list in
.he most haphazard way, taking one per
son from one set, then again another
:rom an entirely different set, and so on
ihrojph the list. If he bad, for instance,
taken in all who have been regular fre
quenters of the notorious Bavliss joint in
Metropolitan block at one fed swoop he
would have had a list longer if not so in
teresting. The same with the one in the
Postoffice block. But the mysterious
Hawkins seems to hye flitted about from
t ush to bush sipping a little information
Lere and a little there, with the result of
tiissing about 2'K gamolers. many of
taem worse by far than some whose
tines wrre published in the record yes
terday. Indeed the general impression
jrevai'.s that some o.' the persoas agaiDSt
vhom information Laj been filed will
te able to establish their, innocence be--,ond
These considerations, if well foundtd.
go to show that the detective was at least
a stranger who had not taken the time to
familiarize himself thoroughly with the
' gang." Bat of course the innermost
fucts being known only to a very few, all
theories concerning the. affair are lit le
n.ore than speculations. Time mav de
velop new facts that will put a different
front on the situation and make clear
many things that now appear rather jbazy
to the average spectator.
Nobody seems to know for sure who
tl.e detective was. but a good many claim
h-j is the party "from Denver" who came
h re cstecsibly to purchase the Keator
house. Marshal Eittilsen was interviewed
b7 the reporter this morning to learn
what truth if any there was in the state
ment published in yesterday's Republican
Journal to the effect that be had enjoyed
tte confidence of the Chicago detective
"The party who gave you that story,"
said the marshal, ' 'must have depended
al'.oeether on his imtginttion I knew
nothing of this detective. He never came
near me, but if he had I could have given
him some good information to work on."
"lou siy you had nothing to do with
"Nothing, whatever. I have no desire
to steal the detective's thunder."

Early in March two glass blowers pro
cured work at the Rock Island glass fac
tory, and as glass factories only pay a
certain portion of their employees wages
each Monday, which is called "market
money," the two came in on the Mondy
following for their "market money" along
with the other workmen, one receiving
$20 and the 6ther $40, after which they
gave up their situations, leaving their
blow pipes and other tools at the factory.
It was coon discovered that they had
drawn more money than was due them
and accordingly the United States Glass
company levied on their tools which
still remained at the factory. A day
or two afterward a one Jacob Schaum ap
peared to take away the tools claiming
that be had previously purchased them J
but as he was not allowed to take them
away, he brought a suit of replevin to
force the company to give up the tools.
When the suit came to trial he placed in
evidence a bill of sale, claiming he bad
bought the tools several days previous to
the date of the bill of sle. The justice
before whom the case was tried, decided
in favor of the Glass company, as the bill
of sale was dated two diys after the at
tachment was issued, and on the ground
of some technicality the young man has
now brought another suit through his at
torney, John Looney, for recovery of the
property. The suit comes up for hearing
before Msgistrate Wivill tomorrow.
In the Interest or Maretj".
A new general order has been issued by
General Manager St. John, of the Rock
Island road, to all engineers, passenger
and freight, on the system. It pertains
to storms, and cautions all engineers to
tie up in the event of a heayy storm and
not to proceed until fully satisfied that
the track ahead is in safe condition. The
recent sudden washouts on the Illinois
division have no doubt awakened the man
agement to the realization of the dangers
that are likely to occur from unusual
storms, and the new order is the result.
