circi it court had been eont in lied lir.-t
to the May term and then to the Ue-tobe-
term, the complainants at both
sessio.is of terms being anxious to
push the issue, but it had been post
poned to the October term with the
undi rst anding t hat nothing should
be d Hie in the meantime; so that no
active steps can be taken to dissolve
the injunction for more than two
months yet. At the Octobe term

junction set aside on the basis of the
The advantage of the delay. Mr.
White explained, was shown in the
fact that meanwhile the Illinois leg
islature had adopted enactments le
galising proceedings id the order had
oitts.de of t he state, and tending to
rem vc the basis nf attack of those
seeking the injunctions. He then
read from the laws of the last legis
lature t he provisions alTeeting tins
ease. There were three distinct section-.
One was the MeKinley law. a
dist net law in itself, which legalizes
..11 proceedings of an order out-ide
of the stale, except what pertains
to t ie removal of the principal idlice.
Another was the M . ( i i n le v act.
whi-h was instituted by. the old line
companies for the purpose of crip
pling the fraterna! -societies, its aim
licit g lo repeal the laws of ls: and
"S7, under which fraternal societies
are organ i.ed to compel llicni to seek
a l ('organization under new law s.
Thi- law .was adopted, but a provi
sioi was tacked on at the last mo
nict t exempting societies now in
existence from coming under its
operation. Tin; other act was what
is fnowii as the Anderson act. and
which is simply amendatory to the
insurance law of 'K; and 'S7, and
which provides that all business done
outddeof the state by fraternal so
cieties shall be considered legal and
C round for Dissolving the Injunction.
I , is under this last named act that
a d ssolution of the temporary in
junction now hanging over the so
ciety will be sought at the 1l)ctober
ter it of the Whiteside county circuit
court. As it is the only act that re
fers directly to the law'under which
the Wooemen were organized, and as
the society is exempt from the oper
ative force of the McGiiiley act by
thrtact, and the MeUinley act is
evidently intended for the benefit of
sot dc-ties yet to be instituted, the di
rectors feel confident that the injunc
tion will be disposed of to the satis
faction of the order, and the direc
tors personally and as Woodmen, all
concur in the hope that the matter
my be adjusted in conformity with
the decision of the head camp to lo
cate the head oflices at Koek Island.
Maj Halves' Dices.
Pending the convening of the
board of directors, Maj. llawes and
his chief assistant, Frank D. Hawos,
showed the visitors through the
oflices, and a comprehensive idea
was obtained of the extent and com
plicated nature of the work in
the major's hands, while all
were impressed with the per
fection of the system he has es
tablished even to the most minute
detail. He has probably as good a
snite of rooms as can be provided in
Fulton, but the quarters, ii may be
readily seen, are not only Inadequate
in size and convenience lint do not
provide! the advantages in point of
safety that an order of such propor
tions and importance should have in
its chief oflices. The vault is a
cramped little concern with dimen
sions of lnxis. while it should be at
least L'dxiil indeed, as Maj. llawes
said yesterday, "we ought to have a
practically lire proof building." Here
the accounts are kept with U.0S3

3."),S5 belong in the state of Illinois.

After finishing their business with
t he Woodmen, the Rock Island dele
gation proceeded across the river to
Lyons via the high bridge and took
electric cars to Clinton, where after
dinner a visit was paid to the luxu
riously furnished and appointed
quarters of t he Wapsipiuicon club,
and which are a credit to the city of
CliHton as they would be to a citv of
much greater magnitude. Mean
while Mayor Hughes had been quiet
ly advised of the presence of the del
egation, and, accompanied by other
representative citizens, he was soon
on hand, ami after escorting the vis
itors about the. business portion of
the city, carriages were provided and
a drive endulged in over the paved
streets of the city, the Rock Island
ers start ing for home at 2:17 over the

Wapsipiuicon club, delighted with
the hospitality and courtesy of Mav

equal to tin- best, and the contrary

CAUGHT A THIEF.
tine AVho Has Keen Working: the Two
A man went into Jones' second
hand store yesterday afternoon and
put up a shot gun upon which ho was
to get $ 10. He received ?6 and was
to come back at 7 p. m. for the other
$4. In the meantime, Chief Sexton
and Chief Kessler, of Davenport,
found the gun there and returned it
to a man in Davenport from whom it
had been stolen. When the stranger
who pawned it returned for his 4 in
the evening he was informed of the
fact that the gun had been stolen.
Upon being told that he had better
go to the police station and lix the
matter up he started to do so, but all
at once made a dash to get away.
Ho ran through the White Elephant
saloon and out into the alley where
a citizen saw him, and thin'k'ng he
had committed some crime, gave
chase. Several others joined in the
pursuit and he was finally overtaken
at Fourth avenue and Sixteenth
street, where he showed light. He
drew a revolver, but was tinallv
overpowered and taken to the police
station, where he gave his name as
Elmer Williams. On him were
found three gold watches, two revol
vers and souk; other articles that had
been stolen from Ickes' pawn broker
shop in Davenport, eai ly in the even
ing. The two men, Ernest Mat son and
Oscar Carlson, arrested by Chief
Sexton and Officer Etzel yesterday
afternoon for stealinga gold watch in
Davenport proved to be the right
men. One had the watch on him and
t lie ol her had the guarantee. They
were taken to Davenport last night.
Another tine in llaveniort.
Davenport was the scene of anoth
er daring robbery last evening, the
most wholesale in character that has
been perpetrated in the three cities
in years.' Shortly before 6 o'clock J.
M. Ickes, a pawnbroker, whose place
is on Perry street between Third and
Fourth, went home to supper, return
ing an hour later to lind that his
place had been burglarized. Two
robbers had pried the back door
open, breaking the bolts and lock and
had gone to the front window where
Mr. Ickes had on exhibition about 3d
gold watches, a number of diamond
studs and diamond rings, IS silver
watches and a lot of revolvers.
They sacked everything except
the silver watches, which thev
left, and departed through the
rear door. Several people saw the
robbers leave, but had no idea
who they were or what they hail
done. When Mr. Ickes came" down
to his store and unlocked the front
door and entered he noticed the rear
door open from the draft that was
made by the opening of the front
tloor, and this, with the general ap
pearance of the dour, instantly told
the story. In another moment he
discovered that he was the victim of
a wholesale robberv. He was com
pletely shocked. He hurried to the
nearest telephone and notified the
police of Davenport and Rock I-land
and the search for the thieves began.
Early yesterday morning burglars
entered the drug" store of C. V.Chase
& Co. on the bltitT in Davenport and
secured 1.50 in nickels and dimes
from the cash drawer.
