THE POLICE REPORT.
Annual Statemrot of the llunlnra of ttmt
The report of Chief of Police Phil
Miller for the year just ended and
which was read before the council at
its last meeting shows a decrease in
crime about in proportion to what it
has been in other parts of the state
during the past year including the
city of Chicago. The report includes
a recommendation for additional po
lice protection and an extension of
the alarm system to include tele
phone attachment and box-houses on
the outskirts for retaining prisoners
until the arrival of the patrol wagon.
The suggestions are good ones and
would undoubtedly have presented
themselves to the new administra
tion. A suggestion is also made that
a lighter outfit be provided for use
of the chief and officers which would
save the use of the patrol wagon and
be a substitute in case of injury or
disability of either of the present

A warrant was sworn out yester

The Modern Woodman suit.
An important suit against the Mod
ern Woodmen of America has just
been decided in the Adams county,
111., circuit court. It was a case in
which the order refusod to pay the
amount of a policy of $3. (; on the
ground thai when reinstated the
neighbor was on his death bed. The
circumstances are as follows: A man
named Bowman joined the order in
February, l!t, at (Jalesburg. He
kept up his assessments and dues un
til July, lNi)u. when owing to dissat
isfaction with the management he al
lowed himself to lapse from July to
November of that vear. In the month
of November Mr. Bowman was taken
sick, and while sick his father ten
dered the amount necessary -to re
store him to good standing to the
camp clerk. The clerk accepted the
money and soon after ifowman uieu,
having never recovored from the ill
ness. " When the claim was presented
the board of directors refused pay
ment on the ground that he was suf
fering with a fatal illness when rein
stated, and consequently was not
eligible to reinstatement. The jury
decided that the acceptance of the
money by the clerk constituted rein
statement, the laws of the order to
the contrary notwithstanding, and
that at the time of his death Mr.
Bowman was a member in good
standing and his wife justly entitled
to the benefit of the policy carried by
him in her favor. Ihe order has en
tered a motion for a new trial.

II. C. Wivill, who retires today af
ter four years of service as police
magistrate, does so with the good
will of the people generally. He has
made a capable, impartial and satis
factory official. Having gone into
the office with no aid whatever from
his immediate predecessor, he was
forced to become acquainted with
his duties as best he could. In re
tiring, however, he has lent all pos
sible assistance to his successor, thus
evincing a disposition that is com
mendable. He has the best wishes
of The Akgis for the future.
