The ltoartl of Kdneatlon Decides to Krect
the No. 4 Ilullding Proceeding.
The board of education met in reg
ular monthly session last evening,
President Sears in the chair, and all
the directors present. The most im
portant business before the session
was the matter of determining upon
the proposed new school building in
the No. 4 district. After an ex
tended disc ussion, in which there was
a free interchange of views, the board
decided to erect the much needed
building, the limit at which it is to
be completed being Sept. 1. 194, and
the board meets Tuesday evening,
March 23, to determine upon plans.
The action of last evening, therefore,
may be construed as an informal not
ice to architects to submit their tinal
plans before the day mentioned. The
general plan in view contemplates a
building of 14 rooms, and . of the
most modern design in appearance,
arrangement and accommodations, as
heretofore described fully in the
Akgi s. The board already has eight
different sets of plans before it for
the new building, which it is esti
mated will cost 4(.ooi.
V Nerrstarv Improvement.
The board deserves great credit for
taking the decided action with refer
ence to this necessary improvement,
and the sooner operations are com
menced the better. The present
building on the No. 4 lot is absolutely
unlit for use. and confronted by the
unavoidable situation the board
could not have adopted any other
course than it did, in the interests of
of t he taxpayers and their children :
anil the strong measure of public
sentiment which has sustained the
board of education of Rock Island in
all its commendable school improve
ments in recent years may again
be counted on.
Other School Matters.
The report of Truant Oflicer Kim
ball for the month of February
showed that 29 cases of absence had
been investigated, two had caused

Grav and Stephens will appear
with their highly trained dogs and
ponies in the successful drama.
Vesper Bells," at Harper's theatre
on Thursday and Friday evenings.
'Vesper Bells" is a play of unusual
merit, and serves to introduce the
accomplished actress, Minnie Oscar
Gray in a character that fits her to
perfection. The St. Bernard dogs
and Russian ponies introduced by
Mr. Stephens are wonderful and
their artistic groupings call forth
enthusiastic applause at every mt
formance. The scenic effects are all
new and very realistic, notably the
avalanche, and the thrilling fescue
by the dogs, also the attack in the
snow-drift of the sleigh bv the bears.
and the thrilling climaxes. Every
one should witness this truly great
"Miss Helvett. with Mrs. louise
Leslie-Carter as the droll little
Quakeress, and Miss Lottie Collins
in her unique creation, "Ta-ra-ra-
Boom-de-ay," will be the double at
traction at the Burtis opera house on
Friday evening. In "Miss Helyett,"
an entertainment already accorded
much favor, are blended the wit And
humor of David Belasco's adroit
adaptation with the sparkling melo
dies of Edmond Audran. It is an odd
entertainment; quite, different from
everything else in the field. The lit
tle "Pennsylvania Quakeress, who
causes all the fun by her tumble
down the Spanish mountain, has been
played continuously with great suc
cess for 16 month's by Mrs. Louise
Leslie-Carter; and there are such
favorites as Mark Smith, J. W. Her
bert, George Lyding, Fannie D. Hall,
with a chorus of pretty girls. Miss
Lottie Collins in "Ta-ra-ra-Hoom-de-
ay" will be a strong special card.
She has been talked about for months.
London lost its head over her unique
creation, and in New York, Boston,
Philadelphia and Chicago she has
been the craze. It seems to be con
ceded that her manner of intoning
the verses of her song and her ex
uberant but refined antics in the
dance are altogether dissimilar to
those of any other woman who has

Democrats Have iirave lutle to Perform
Tonight in the several wards occur
the democratic caucuses to select
aldermanic candidates and to choose
delegates to tomorrow night's citv
township convention. The party has
only to be guided by the proper
policy to win all along the line this
spring. In the choice of aldermanic
timber, as in the candidates to com
pose the city and township ticket,
it is to the best interests of the party
as well as for the city to bring the
energetic young men of the city to
the front, and relegate the fossils, to
the rear seats. Today a number of
new aldermanic candidates were
brought out. Ex-Aid. Mathes
Buncher developed as an aldermanic
candidate in the First ward, while
George F. Roth consented to be con
sidered as a candidate for the demo
cratic nomination in the Second
ward. In the Fourth ward W. C.
Maucker's friends brought him out,
while in the Seventh Robert Wagner
developed strength as an aldermanic
possibility. Indeed, the party never
had a better opportunity to select
good candidates all over the city,
those mentioned in the different
wards being as follows:
First ward M. Buncher, William
Second ward Charles Durinar.i:.
Fred Schroeder. Sewall Dodge, George
F. Roth, E. D. McCartney.
Third ward Daniel Corken. 1.
Winter, John Stroehle.
Fourth ward A. 1). Iluesing.

Seventh ward R. Schweeke. Paul

For township collector on the dem
ocratic ticket, B. H. Kimball, Edward
Bauersfield and Georgo W. D. Har
ris are running an even race.
For assistant supervisors, J. S.
Darrah and C. H. Sedel are talked of.
Fovjustice of the pace, II. A.
Baldwin and J. R. Johnston have
been presented, the latter also being
mentioned in connection with the
nomination for assessor.
For constables. Louis Ohlweiler

The Rock Island and Moline Busi
ness Men's associations not having
appointed committees to take sub
scriptions of stock in their cities, Mr.
Guyer was asked to secure action
from the former body and Mr. Vin
ton and W. F. Eastman from the lat
ter. Messrs. Lardner, Korn. Guyer and
Schroeder were appointed a commit
tee to interview agents of railroad
companies relative to the running of
summer excursions to this point dur
ing the world's fair season, and the
meeting adjourned till next Tuesday
afternoon, in the rooms of the Rock
Island Business Men's association.
What the league needs now is avail
able funds. With a good proportion
of its stock placed it can produce
something more tangible than talk.
The Jones i'amlly.
The Jones Musical Family have ar
ranged to give a grand family mati
nee especially for ladies and children
at the Turner hall in this city on
Saturday afternoon, March 18, at 8
o'clock. Many friends have ex

nity of taking their family to hear
these remarkable children and this
will enable them to attend. As they

of Illinois for a large number of en
gagements this will be the last op
portunity of hearing them for some

Caught While Trying to Work Jeweler
A man giving his name as M., J'f
Reidy and claiming to hail froirt
Rockford got beautifully called down
on a species of "con" game at Wolt
mann's jewelry store this morning.
The stranger entered the store and
engaged Mr. Ecklund the clerk in
conversation, saying that his mother
would be in shortly to look for a pair
of spectacles and that he would wait
there for her. Mr. Ecklund Was sit
ting facing the - window engraving
some spoons, and the visitor who was
behind him inquire'd the price of the
spoons and while thus engaged he
reached over a show case and slid
the door back. It was a pretty long
reach and he could only get one of
the watch cases that were inside. He
knew better than to overdo it, how
ever, so after taking one of the gold
cases he quietly closed the case
again. Clerk Ecklund though keep
ing up the conversation saw a reflec
tion of his visitor's movements and
as the stranger made some remark
about going over to get his mother
Mr. Ecklund walked around and in
tercepted him at the door. The
would-be thief then showed fight and
as the two clinched Mr. Woltmann
himself, who hail been watching the
occurence from the rear part of the
I store, though unknown to either of
ir.e oiner two. came iorwaru ana in a
few moments the patrol wagon
stopped at the door and the fozey
stranger was taken to police head
quarters. He will.be given a hear

A Second avenue business house
was burglarized early Sunday morn
ing and some 27 taken from a
drawer containing about 80. The
manner in which the theft was com
mitted shows the familiarity of the
burglars, and some one mav vet get
into trouble oyer the affair.
The residence of Mrs. Ben Harper
on Eighteenth sneetwas burglarized
on Monday night. A rear door hav

thoroughly ransacked. Mrs Harper
has been visiting at the residence of

Island which was probably known to
the burglars. I he amount secured

bank in one of the rooms.
Chief Miller returned this morning
from St. Louis with Robert Gregg,
who is wanted for embezzlement from
Fisher Bros. Mr. Fisher had a con
ference with Gregg at police head
quarters this morning, and a settle
ment may be made. The Globe
Democrat says of Gregg's arrest in
St. Louis: "Robert Gregg was ar
rested at Seventh and O'Fallon streets
last night by Detective Louis J.
Ziegler. Gregg is wanted in Rock
Island, 111., for the alleged embez
zlement of 3')0 from the Fisher

Secretary Carlisle has appointed
F. G. Claussen superintendent of the
public building at Davenport, super
seding Major Burnette, who had re
ceived his appointment through re
publican influences. In this same
connection it may be mentioned that
a change in the appointment at Rock
Island is not at all unlikely, S. J.
Collins having been named'by the
administration now defunct. 'Fred
Hass was originally an applicant for
the position, and is still, while John
Volk and George Lamont have also
expressed their "willingness to serve
