fer with the mayor who promised to
allow a covering of sand or sawdust
on the pavem -nt to suhdue the

best remedy posil.le for the evil is
the erection of i new court house in

it cannot be expected that the

by judge, juiy and attorney without

judgment of the county in so decid

We are tts undecided asanvbodv
when we will resume." said rresidenl
Phil Mitchel of the Kock'lsland Tlow
works this morning, in response to
an inquiry from an Ai;;i s reporter
in rcferenei to when the company
contemplated starting up again.
We niav be running i v the middle
of October.'' Mr. Mitchell continued,
and perha s not before Nov. 1. but
the probabilities are we will be going
again by the latter date at the out
side. You know we run a month to
six weeks longer than any other fac
tory about 1 ere. and the consequence
is wc accumulated a fairly large
stock of go lds, which we still have
on hand am our resumption is con
tingent entirely upon the disposition
of that. Last season was the most
profitable the Kock Island Plow
works have ever experienced and the
factory turned out more products
than ever efore. Now we are sim
ply holding off until what goods the
diill times 'have left on our hands are
taken into market.'"
Asked if there was any danger of
the plow works not starting it be
fore Januaty 1. Mr. Mitchell said he
did not thii.'k there was the least pos
sibility of the works remaining idle
until that time.
All the Moline factories are now
running except the Corn Planter

Two farmer boys who were in Kock
Island yesterday afternoon were done
np by a pair of frauds in Davenport
last night. They were from Van
Orin, 111., and had been working for
a few days on a farm back of Milan,
and as a result one had $13 and the
other $7 when they got into town.
They were working their way to
Omaha, and after spending most of
the afternoon in Rock Island went to
Davenport to take a train for the
west. They were at the Davenport
depot at 7:30 when the train from the
east came in. Among the crowd on
the platform was a young stranger
who tried to start a conversation
with them, and incidentally warned
them against two other men in the
crowd, whom he said were detec
tives, hater the boys were ap
proached by these two men. who an
nounced themselves as detectives,
and said that they were sorry, but
they would have to put the boys un
der arrest for vagrancy. I Itev said
that they had been watching them
and had concluded that thev were no
good. Although the elder boy pro
tested that he and his companion
had money and were going to leave
town, it did no good. The larger
men, pretended detectives, took
thorn in tow,- escorted them down
Fifth street, directly past the police
station, and when they found a con
venient place, made a search of the
boys' clothing. For $10 they offered
to let them go if they would leave
town, and they finally appropriated
$10, lea-ving the boys each, anil
started back up town.
The boys reported the matter at
police headiiuarters. but no trace has
as yet been found of the detectives."

Proceeding With the Evidence In the Sin

Yesterday afternoon in the Sinnet

showing from whose testimony that
Mr. Sinnet was not in his right mind
when he made the contested will, and
that previous to his becoming at

said he intended to make no will.
This morning Mrs. Mary Sly was put
on the stand, and testified to being a
neighbor of Alanson Sinnet and to be-1
ing called in on Nov. 9, ISSo. and to
being there continuously until after
his death. She stated in detail day
by day, week by week the condition
of Mr. Sinnet from the time he was

talked about making a will, and in
sisting that he should make one.

"Last evening at the Y. M. C A.
rooms the ladies' auxiliary gave a
very -pleasant entertainment. Re
freshments were served in the early
part of the evening consisting of
coffee, sandwiches, etc.. and later
ice cream and cake. The greatest.
and most unique features of the
evening were the studio and clip
ping parties, the former consisting
of shadow drawing and the latter,
probably the more novel of. the two,
of articles of all descriptions being
fastened upon a string and marked
in prices ranging from a penny to 2o
cents. The person wishing to pur
chase was then blindfolded and led
to Ihe string and the article which
he laid hi hands upon clipped, and
he then paid whatever price was
marked upon it. The proceeds
amounted to about $50. and will be
used for the purpose of furnishing
the reception room of the building.
Despite the inclemency of the
weather quite a number attended,

I'aul Failure Which Will Cause

misfortune through the dishonesty
of one of its members. The dis

shocked this evening upon learning
that Jules II. Burwell. vice-president,
treasurer and general manager
of the Mast, Buford L- Burwell Car
riage company, was charged with the
misappropriation of $lo.(ioo of the
funds of the lirm. The statement
was at first received with incredulity,
but inquiry at the ofliee of the clerk
of the district court set all doubt at
rest, as a complaint had already been
tiled there by the company, formally
charging Burwell with illegally ta
