riL'h;ly used. The many, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting the world's lest products to
the needs of physical being, will attest

every objectionable substance.

ALL OVER A LETTER.
A Libelous MlHMlve oes Atttrny am! Causes
A good-sized family .rumpus seems
to have been stirred np in the Nya
Pressen newspaper office over a letter
that accidentally strayed from the
pocket of the recipient and inoppor
tunely fell beneath the gaze of the
wrong individual. Prof. William
Ljung was formerly the editor of Nya
Pressen. He went to Chicago sever
al months ago to act as an interpre
ter at the World's fair. He claimed
to have have been frozen out of his
editorial position in Moline because
thev reduced his salarv below the
living point, etc., his impression be
ing that they wished to make it an
object for him to give way in favor
of someone else whom the directors
seemed to favor. As another chap
ter of the siory Herman Linderoth,
who succeeded John A. Freeman as
manager not long ago. was on Satur
day deposed from his position and
Mr. Freeman elected to till the posi
tion again. Mr. Linderoth claims
that the action was due to the in
trigues of the aforesaid Freeman and
two of the directors, who, he thinks,
were more interested in promoting
the welfare of Mr. Freeman than that
of the newspaper. Now the Republican-Journal
tells the facts of the
newspaper row as follows:
Several days ago. ex-Editor Ljung
wrote a letter to Mr. Linderoth in
which he, besides referring to some
strictly private and personal matters,
discussed the alleged intriques of
Mr. Freeman and the other two di
rectors. Mr. Linderoth was at the
Nya Pressen office on Friday morn
ing ami accidentally dropped the let
ter out of his pocket. When he
missed the letter he returned to the
office and learned that Mr. Freeman
had picked it up and appropriated it
despite the fact that it bore on its
face prima facie evidence of being
Mr. Linderoth s property. J he lat
ter gentleman went to Mr. Freeman's
house and demanded the return of
the letter. Freeman felt sore about
t he roasting he aud his friends had
received in the missive and refused
to give it up, whereupon Mr. Linde
roth gave him notice that he would
begin legal proceedings to recover
fits property. He consulted a Mo
line attorney, who informed him
that Freeman had laid himself open
to the charge of larceny.
S:iv the M-.ite's Attorney.
Linderoth then went to Rock Isl
and and he claims that it was while
consulting the state's attorney that
the letter was sent to him by Mr.
Freeman, he having in the meantime
published the contents so far as he
elected. Mr. Linderoth is wroth, of
course, and states that he is advised
that he yet has legally a good hold on
Freeman and that if the hitter's
Apollo-like form isn't encircled by
the strong right arm of the law he
can attribute it to the mercy that
season's justice betimes.
Mr. Freeman states that he found
the letter iri the toilet room on the
floor, a tfd picked it up from among
some scraps of waste paper. Having
found it unsealed in a public place,
he did not consider it private prop
erty. He "says that the letter was cf
a UbelcfHrt" nature ami concerned him
self, C. A. Rosander and Editor Ol
son. That is why he took such a
keen interest in saving the epistle.
He pronounces the charges in the
letter as false ami slanderous anil
calculated to get their author. Prof.

trio thus libeled see fit to prosecute

The contract was closed with Volk
& Co. for the "hew No. 4 school build

pressly stipulated that the stone
work was to be let to ex-Mayor Mc

made with regard to the brick, it be
ing understood that William Atkin
son is to furnish it.
As Contractor C. J. Larkin had
made the same bid with Volk & Co.
that he did with Sievers & Anderson,
whose proposition, it is charged, was
rejected by the anti-Cathulic influ
ences on account of Mr. Larkin's
name appearing on it as a sub-contractor,
it would appear that the as

A Number for Improvement
A MEETING CALLED THIS WEEK.

of Members That Matters of the I'tmost
Importance to the City May Receive
I'roper Attention Columbian (iroaniln
M XV. A. Oftlces The Glais Factory.
President Jackson, of the Rock
Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation, has prepared a special circu
lar to the. members of the association
urging their attendance at a meeting
to be hebl next Thursday evening at
the rooms in Mitchell & LyndeV
block. The association has consid
erable important work on hand that
should be looked after, and it is
hoped that' the president's appeal
will be met by a response on the part
of all the members. The winding up
of the Columbian matter, the bring
ing of the head offices of the Modern
Woodmen from Fulton to Rock Island
and the glass factory situation are
all projects of the utmost importance
demanding action on the part of the
association and its committees.
The Columbian Grounds.
As regards the Columbian tract, the
association should render the com
mittee in charge all the aid possible
in the disposition of it. The land
will soon fx; pnt on the market, anil
unless some steps are taken look-
nig to the reservation of
part of it for park purposes
the eastern portion- of the citv
will lose its only opportunity to se
cure such andvantages. As all our
public improvements of recent years
have originated with the Improve
nient association, it may be ex
pected to take the initiative in urg
ing upon the city, which has always
co-operated with it. the desirability
ot purchasing a block of the Colum
bian tract for park purposes. The
ground may be readily adapted to
such designs, and the people of that
part of the citv need and deserve
breathing place of this kind. The
Columbian grounds ahtoie afford it
The M. V. A. Ollicers,
It is important too, that steps be
taken looking to the fulfillment of
the association's pledge with refer
ence to the moving of the head office:
of the M. W. A from Fulton to Rock
Island. Now that all legal obstruc
tions are practically removed a com
mittee should be sent to Fulton to
seek a dissolution of the injunction
the and speedy removal of the offices
as ordered bv the Omaha convention.
The Glass Fartory.
It behooves the association to do
something in view of the closing
down of the Rock Island glass facto
rv and the threatened loss of this in
dustry. The association has for one
of its chief aims the encouragement
o f new industries. It should also
foster and save to the city those al
readv established here.
DEATH TO DOGS.
Mayor Medill lnsues a Timely Order A
Mayor Medill, in view of the mad
dog occurrence of Saturday, has in
structed Chief Sexton to order his
men to put to death all dogs sus
pected of having been bitten by the
dog that created such a disturbance
last week. Incompliance with this
Officer Long this morning shot one
dog that was bitten, and the ollicers
have others on their list.
There are many who believe
that the mayor ought to
order all dogs muzzled at once
and thus prevent any further
spreading of the dread disease.
While; Mayor Medill thinks there is
no occasion as yet for such stringent
measures, it would certainly be the
safest jan after all.
To the Iuveiiiort Ilnreo.
A special train will leave the C K.
I. & P. depot at 1:45 j). m. daily July
