Blelb Petrrp, or Wnyenport. Claims to
Have Been Uniting it ,000 Worth
A suit for damages in the amount nf
20,000 was filed by Bletk Peters, of
Davenport, plaintiff, Tuesday, the defend,
ants being Aid. Bischoff, Leonard and
Beyer, of that city. The grounds alleged
in this suit are that at a council meeting
held on the 6th of July, 1892, the said
defendants reported as a committee to
the council, the report being regularly
published in the council proceedings, rec
ommending that steps be taken tc secure
the collection of ' 'polNtax in a more re
spectable manner ' than had hitherto been
employed by Justice Peters.
Mr. Peters declares the report to be
false and defamatory, and considers that
his reputation has been damaged at least
20,000 worth, for which amount he
The Democrat says the matter grows
out of the complaints of certain individ
uals to the iffect that Justice Peters has
followed them with prosecution for the
collection of poll tax under circumstan
ces that made said collections really un
just. In one case brought to the notice
of the council an error appears to have
been made in the costs taxed to and col
lected from the defendant. It is stated
that the trouble is largely due to the fact
that men who receive notice of poll tax,
and who are not liable to pay that sort of
tax, in many cases make no reply but
stay away frrm the justice and his
court, not deigning to notice the fact
that suit has been entered against them
and a certain day set for trial. By this
method of procedure a number of citizens
who are clearly not liable for poll tax
have managed to have judgments set
down against them. The entering of a
judimeat against such a man isapt to
provoke his righteous indignation, of
course, but in many cases the facts have
been substantially ss stated, and the en
tering of the judgments have been purely
the fault of the men thus taxed. All
such things make hard feeling, however,
and out of this maelstrom of excitement
the aldermen mentioned emerged as a
committee with the language that has
given such offense to Mr. Peters.

President Darling, of the Davenport
Mile Track association, gives notice that
the owncis of Alleri?n and Delmarch
have agreed to bring their horses to the
August meet at Davenport when they
will trot for the $10,000 purse which the
association has offered for the race This

which have not been made public, but
which will be miiie known as soon as
the entries are closed. The string i
a magnificent one embracipg the rin
est horses on the track. These will
be entered for the regular purses which
in themselves are not to be sneered at by
even the most ambitious horse. They
vary from $500 to 82 000.
The great rhce bctwien Allerton and
Delmarch is for the spicial purse offered
by the Mile Track ciub, amounting to
$10,000. This, sum is not taken out of
the $26,000 offered in purses, but from
the $15,000 reserved for special races
The race is booked for Wednesday Au

ably be present.
Our Pretty Prk.
The Davenport Lvadcr devotes a col
umn to a write-up of the advantages of
public park improvements. It says "that
Davenport might take a lesson concern
ing public parks from its neighbor across
the Mississippi is something that cannot
be disputed. Of course we have a board
of park commissioners at work, who
represent the city as a corporate body,
but something more than this is needed
to show popular interest and regard for
the work tbey have in hand." After
describing all the different ornaments in
the square and the donors and the amount
of money involved, the Leader states:
The people of Kock Island have set an
example Davenporters ought to follow.
We have here the advantages that a much
larger population gives in our favor, and
the best chances for an immedieate carry
ing out of a similar improvement on this
side of the river is afforded by Washing
ton park. Rock Island has abown how
the making of a simple square into a
beautiful park, adorned with statuary,
rich vases, ornamental columns, flower
beds and other adornments of nature and
art could be done.
