ceived from tbe manager of their Council

house by L. D. Parker, general superin
tendent of tbe Postal Telegraph company,
relative to the recent refusal of tbe Mo
line council to alter their ordinance and
leave out a clause reqn'ring tbem to keep
open their office till midnight. The let
ter, among other things, says:
Until the Moline council sees proper to
allow us to establish fen office in tht city
on tbe same basis that tbe Western Union
company is allowed to maintain an office
there, I hope to be able to handle your
business through our Rock Island office
by telephone, and will guirant e to dis
count tbe Western Union's time, even
under such disadvantages.
I am unable to Bay just who is respon
sible for that unfair and unjust clause ii
tbe ordinance eranteJ us although 1 am
advised the Western Union apparently
has some warm friends in the Moline
Mr. Pope, assistant secretary cf Deere
& Company, made a copy of Mr. Parker's
letter and sent it to the Moline eity coun
cil, together with a note asking if it
would not be agreeable for them to t Iter
the ordinance so as to enable tbe Postal
company to accept of the same and give
Moline additional telegraphic facilities
Tbe petition and letter w;re read be
fore that body Monday evening and
Tbe company his defluitely determined
to leave Moline o3 its main line entirely,
but make it later on if satisfactory ar
rangement is made by meana of a "plug."

Powers was intoxicated, and that tbe son
went to a neighboring saloon for liquor

Cortney that sbe died for the want of the
