A Queer Ordinance Pertaining

It -Thr drear tetai era.
Thb Argus of yesterday spoke of the
arrest of four Molioe I usiness men. in.
eluding City Attoraey O ikleat and Super ,
visor Smith, for violating its city ordi
nances relative to dis-riSnning calendars,
blotters, etc.. containing advertisements.
The Dispatch describes the case which is
These warrants had tetn issued on the
complaint of Officer Kearney, ami, as
stated baturday, the two men appeared
before Magistrate Etrns. nd were
granted a continuance .ill tbe S2i. in or
ler to give both parties an opportunity
to prepare for trial. Khoril, thereafter,
to make the ridiculous afluir more inter
esting mill, warrants w?re sworn out by
L. S. O Neill, charging City Attorney J

Oa being summoned by an officer Mr.
Oikleaf appeared before ihe magistrate
anil was allowed to make his statement.
wunout a formal trWl. Mr. Oakleaf
stated that Mr. O'Neill, the complainant,
had come to his JrL-e and requested his
assistant to give him a calenaar with his
(OikleafV) business ci.rd thereon, at tbe
Knrne time stating that he wanted to use
it as the basis in m-iking a complaint
Sa:cst Mr. Oikleaf. The rt quest was
refused, but on Mr. O-.klebf learning of
tbe request, he ordered one given to Mr.
O'Neill. On hearing the statement of
the defendant, which was admitted by
the complainant to be tiue, the case was
On the complainant admitting that the
chaijje against R. A. Smith was subst-in
tially the same, the wtrrint was ordered

City Attorney O .kit sf regards the ar
rest c,f Messrs. Carpenter and O'Neill
altogether unwarranted and baaed upon
a a.ifrepresentttion of the ordinance. He
regards a little singular that a policeman
should so interpret an ordinance without
consulting the city attorney on its mean
ing. There is an apparent defect in the or
dinance. Its title ind cites that it is an
ordinance to regulate bill boards and bill
posting. But its text totally forbids the
"distribution" of adTtrtising matter with
out a license. Oa be ng interviewed re
gardirg the matter, C:y Attorney Oik
leaf stated that the ordinance was fully
as explicit as many a state law, and all
thft is necessary is ro give it an inter
pretation that is reasonable and not in
cot flict with tbe recognized rights of cit
izens of the United Mates. The ihibi
Ltion against "distributing" advertising
matter "in the city" refers. Mr. Oakleaf
continued, to tbe city streets and alleys
over which the city his undisputed con
trol. It does not refer to private rest
dences, store 8 or busir ess houses. Hence
tbe ordinance does not pretend to
do so ridiculous a thing as to forbid
a man to go into another man's store and
present bis business Cird. Neither does
it forbid anyone, without a license, from
taking an armful of b lis and distributing
them in tbe business bouses along any of
our streets or avenue?. The city attor
ney thinks the magistrate should in no
case issue a warrant for anyone without
inquiring into the ev dence complainant
will give, and thus asc ertaining if there is
a probable case.
If Mr. 0kleaf s it terpretation of the
ordinance is finally made, considerable of
tbe sting is to be taken out of the ordi
nance; but it will still be unsatisfactory,
if a man who gets out a nice calendar as
in the case of Mr. Carpenter or Mr.
O'Neill cannot take two or three in his
hands and band them to friends whom be
may meet on tbe st net. Mr. Carpen
ter's offense was in hiving handed a cal
endar to a policeman in the alley between
Carpenter & Co's. ( Mice and the police
The object of the ordinance is to pre
vent strewing the s.reets with dodgers
banded to passersby and dropped by
them after little or no inspection. In-as-murb
as it goes far beyond thi, it seems
to us it needs amendiag.

meet aso ,'iat ion mcetd tonigbjto hear
and consider Col. George F. Robenson's
proposition to establish a factory here
for the manufacture of a car lubricator.
Many of our cit z;ns, including railroad
men, have examined Col. Roben
son's device and are leased with it. Tbe
contrivance involves a saving of 50 per
cent in oil to railroad:), saves packing of
the journal, and obviates entirely
the danger of hot boxes. One of them re
cently ran 10,500 mill s on a Pulllman car
without being replei ished, and the A.,
T. & S. F. road has given Col. Robenson
orders to equip all its csr. with tluni. All
he wants now is to establish tbe factory
to turn them out.' He has abundant
orders, and when it ts considered that
there are over 2,0K),000 railroad.cars
in the country, to say nothing of the con
stant manufacture, t;ie field for such an
invention may be in agined.1 Gak-bburg
is red hot after it, and if Rock Island
would have it, it shot Id bestir itself . Col.
Robenson has been attracted by Rock
Island's advantages in location, etc., and
would like to establish his factory here.

will interrupt the work from now until it

order to exoedite the work nf

He was assisted to his room.where he laid
flown upon his bed. He assured Mips
Raynor and Mr. Birdsall, who also came
to bis assistance, that be would be better
in a few miautes, that he bad merely dis
tressed himself by drinking a little cold
water, and promised to call them by the
bell if anything was wanted. A short
time after Miss Raynor went to his room.
His bead had fallen back and be wss tan-

from that stale about 38 years ago. He
was for 35 years a conductor in the pas
