hardly be credited by the great number
of Bock Island people who always pat

The board of supervisors visited the
county poor farm yesterday, where the
lay waB pleasantly stent, one of the feat
ures being a foot race between Supervise
ors Frick and Schneider, the first named
meeting with a little difficulty that re
suited in his loosing the race. The time
of the board this morning was mostly
taken up in hearing reports passing bills,
Ezra L. Esstmau thi- morning filed a
petition in the circuit court for a writ of
mandamas to compel the board to accept
his bond as poor mister of the city of
Moiine, and the board decided to refer
the matter to the state's attorney. In
view of the fact that the county was
about to be brought into 'litigation ovr
the matter. Supervisor Cralle moved as n
substitute to another motion that the
state's attorney be instructed to make
the issue in the pending mandamas suit
as to the right of the city of Moline to
appoint a poormaster instead of on the
technacality of the bond. Chairman
Smith decided the motion out of order
and the house was appealed to, the chair
being sustained by a vote of 18 to 11 and
there the matter rested.
