An Arroaapllre tm Dit-report.
Rota Greec, claiming "to hail from
Chicago, wan arrested on First avenue
tbie morning by Chief Miller for attemDt
ing to pass begus orders on a number of
Rock Island business houses. During
the morning the had endeavored to ob
tain merchandise at tbe stores of Carse
& Co., McCaSe Bros, and M, & K. At
tbe first nemtd store she presented this
Carte & Co: Please send me two pair
of shoes 3 ladies; ? men's, and chsrgj
tome. Mr. C. B. Knox
Please send me the bill.
Tne fact that Mr. Enoz is deceased
c. used suspicion in the mind of Clerk
McDonald, who referred the matter to
Manager Wright, wh?, of course, de
clinedto honor tbe order, and the young
woman left the store. Clerk McDonald
followed her i.nd was not long in ascer
taining that ht McCabe Bros', she had
attempted to secure a $15 cloak on tbe
s'retg'h of so order, endorsed with the
name of Mrs. I. Buber. Mr. McCabe was
not to be taken in by the order, and he
at OLce communicated with the police.
The woman had also attempted to palm
off an order for a pair of ladies' shoes
signed by B. Knox, at the M. & S. es
tablishment, tut Clerk Adams was too
sharp for her. Meanwhile Chief Miller
had gotten on her track, and her arrest, as
stated, was the result.
The woman confessed at the station
that the orders were forced, but she
claimed that tbey were written by an ac
complice named Maggie Noonan who was
working in Davenport. She said bo'h
were from Ch capo, and that Mrs. Wil
liam Crowley of 3141 Wabash ayenue,
was her aunt. Sbe claimed that her step
father's name was Knox, which had in
duced her to t uggest that name to her accomplice.
The young woman appeared to be
about 30 jeirs of age, and was neatly
dressed. Sbe gave a good description of
the Noonan g rl to the police and it was
telephoned by Chief Miller to the police
At a late tour this afternoon no one
answering the description given had been
arresud in Davenport, though tbe police
over there are on the look out for her.

NEW BUSINESS ENTERPRISES
Twa ar Taraa far Seek Islaad A
Bitae Hae aa Jewelry mere.
Rock Island is to have two new busi
ness enterprises one. a boot and aboe
house and the other a jewelry store.
The ft rmer ia to be conducted by Dolly
Bros., and will be opened about tbe 20th
in the south storeroom of the handsome
brick business block on Twentieth street
south . of Third avenue, and owned by
Mrs. S. A. James, with whom the Messrs.
Dolly haye perfected a lease. The enter
prising young proprietors, Messrs. T. H.
and J. P. Dolly, need no introduction to
the local public Born and reared in
Rock Island they have both through '
their own exertions and bright disposi
tions wotked their way into positions of
responsibility and honor, tbe former as
a machinist at Rock Inland arsenal, and
the other a fireman on tbe Rock Is'.and
road. J. P. Dolly bas abandoned his
place on the rai.road to devote himself
actively to the mercantile pursuit in
which his brother and himself have
embarked and is now in Chicago in com
pany with a cousin of 10 years' exper
ience ia this particular line, selecting the
stock for the, new Rock Island store.
Tbe firm of Dolly Bros, has been fortu
nate in securing not only a desirable
storeroom, but an excellent location on
one of tbe rapidly building up business
throroughfares of tbe city. Tbe store is
entirely new and will be first-class in all
its appointments, T. H. Dolly having
tbis morning secured from E. P. Rey
nolds the best of the fixturts formerly
used in the store of George Schneider in
his Eim street building.
It 8 tribes The Argus that there is a
splendid opportunity in Rock Island for
just such a branch of trade as the Messrs.
Dolly propose to establish, and consid
ering this, the location and their popu
larity it is safe to predict for them suc
cess and prosperity.
The jewelry store which is soon to be
aJilid tu I.,ck lol&ad's business h.iUbes ill
be established by Fred Woltmann in tbe
storeroom on Second avenue east of
Eighteenth, formetly occupied by tbe
People's National bank, and than which
a better room and better location could
rot be found in Rock Island. Mr. Wolt
mann is late of Avoca, Iowa, where he
has been for 13 years and has had 18
years experience in tbe jewelry business,
and now comes back to his old
home to cast his lot. He
is a Rock Island boy, born and bred an
accomplished gentleman and thorough
business man, and all will join in wishing
him abundant success in his business in
A rare ifakJnx rowder.
A baking powder that can be depended
upon tj be free from lime and alum is a
desideratum -in these days of adulterated
food. So far as can be judged from the
official reports, tbe "Royal" seems to be
the only one yet found by chemical
analyses to be entirely without one or the
other of these substances, and absolutely
pure. This, it is shown, results from the
exclusive use by its manufacturers of
cream of tartar specially refined and pre'
pared by patent processes which totally
remove the tartrate of lime and otter im
purities. The coat of this chemically
pure cream of tartar is much greater than
any other, and it is used in no baking
powder except tte "Royal, the man u
facturers of which control the patents
under which it is refined.
' Dr. Edward G. Live, formerly analy
tical chemist for tbe U. S. government,
who made the analyses for the New York
state board of health in their investigation
of baking powders, and whose intimate
knowledge of tbe ingredients of all thOEe
sold in this maiket enables him to speak
authoritatively, says of the purity, whole-
somenesa, and superior quality of the
"I find the Royal Baking Powder com
posed of pure and wholesome ingredi
ents. It is a crem of tartar powder ard
does cot contain either alum or pbos
pbates, or other injurious substance."
Prof. Love's tests, and tbe recent offi
cial tests by both the United States and
Canadian governments, show the Royal
Baking Powder to be superior to all
othera in strength and leavening power.
It is net onlv tbe most economical in use,

Another Important Meeting of the
. " Twin City Committee.
The P rmaaeat Exponitlaa IMaraas '4
at Leattk a ad ava AXJoaraaaeat t ,
the Braeks' Kite.
Obedient to Chairman Velie's call, a
meeting of tbe Twin City Columbian
Fourth of July and Mechanical Exposi
tion committee was held last evening at
the rooms of the Moline Business asso
ciation. Chairman Velie cresided.
There was a general discussion of the
committee's report to tbe joint meeting
of the - two associations held at Moline
Thursday night, and the action taken
upon it, and also a free interchange of
views with reference to the tracts under
consideration, in which extended remarks
were made by Presidents Jack
son and Bennett. of the
two associations, and the committee fi
nally adjourned to meet on the Brooks'
trict tomorrow afternoon at 3;30, to per
sonally go over the land and any othur
available property, and decide definitely
as to the best course to pursue.
The committee while real zing the im
portance of the undertaking, nod tbat
there is a great deal of hard work 10 be
done if tbe exposition is to be mde a
success. Yet the ccmmiltee is very
much in earnest and is thoroughly confi
dent that it will be all that is anticipated
1h lliii t;ase.
The Union woke up this morning to
find tbat a pretty good cbaio of circum
stantial evidence bad b- en woven about
the matter of the pouting of the nitric
add oa the face and neck of Mrs. W B
Hill last Thursday night, and it became
dumbfounded to know that none of the
suspicious circumstances surrounding the
case, such as have appeared from time to
time it The Argus, had been made pub
lic through its columcs, nd it a1, oncn
became wrathy at the police and gave ex
pression to this assertion:
A Union reportor called at politic head-
quar ers in tbe Armory between 6 and 10
o'clock on Saturday evening to iiquire if
there were any fresh developments in the
mil vitriol throwing case. He was told
by the efficers present that there was
nothing lew. fbere was something new
however, and why the Rock Island police
should Keep it from a Kock Isltnd news
paper thereby giving the Davenport pres
the advantage of first publication is as
mystifying to the ordinary intelligence
as the release by the pi lice of a prisoner
with strong circumstantial evidence ot
bis guilt, without Dresenling the case to
a justice of the peace.
In reference to the first part of the
Union's remarks it may be said that had
it been as diligent a reader of The Arocs
as the msjority of people in Rock Island,
it woald have found in the Saturday eve
ning issue of this paper, and before it
appeared in a Davenport paper, tbe an
nouncement that Hill had probatly pur
chased nitric acid at Harrison's pharmacy
in Dwenport Thursday evening before
the occurrence. Such revelation would.
to say the least, have served the Union
as a pretty good "pointer" to work the
police, if nothing else. The Argus
woald not sustain the police in withhold'
ing even's of a news nature from the
press, but it is infermei that
when the Union reporter went to
police headquarters Saturday night he
was told that there was nothing new in
the HiU case beyond, what eppeared in
The Arous of that evening.' The Union
would not take Tax Argus' statement
and hence got left. As far as filing the
information is' concerned, The Arous
believes Chief Miller has exercised the
full extent of his authority in the prem
ises. It bas bten reported that BIr. Hill is
probably mentally deranged, and if tbere
is any foundation for the accusations im
plicating him, his conduct may be cbarilably
attributed to this fact. Whatever may be
the ground for tbis view of tbe case, Mr.
Hill bas certainly acted very strangely
since tbe night of tbe frightful attack
upon his wife, and has not only made a
number of conflicting statements in ex
planatlon of his purchase and use of the
nitric acid both in this city acd in Daven
port, but a further circumstance which
seems difficult of explanation ia tbat Mr.
Hill has made no very great effort either
to exonerate himself or to apprehend the
guilty in connection with tbe crime.
The. Argus haa had no disposition to
treat Mr. Hill unfairly in the matter, but
has endeavored to present all the facts it
could gather from day to day having any
bearing on the case.
A change for tbe worse has taken
place in Mrs. Hill's condition, and Dr,
Einyon states tbat for the text two weeks
at least, she will be in the most critical
