Fund Created for Purpose of Scour ing Factories In and Around Quincy May be Taken Down. NO ASSURANCE. CAUSE Power Company Has Not Assured the Quincy Association of Rates for Current and They May Draw Out Quincy Whig: As the result of the failure or refusal of the Mississippi River Power company, at Keokuk, to furnish Quincy with a definite rate sheet, indicating at what rate the fac tories in and around this city will be supplied with power, it is possible that the industrial fund which was recently raised, will be held up indef initely. By this it is meant that, prob ably no more of the money will be spent, only on contracts that are now entered into, until satisfactory ar rangements have been made with the Mississippi River Power company. The board of trustees of the indus trial fund of the. city met .last Satur day, and at that time took action sim ilar to the above. A resolution was 1 prepared whkh will be presented to J*™* the executive committee at its next meeting. What action will be taken, or with what attitude the executive committee views the situation, still remains to be seen. .V* The Chamber of Commerce offi cial have had several conferences with Hugh Cooper and Mr. Trawick of the power company, but as yet no satisfactory results have been obtain ed, although Mr. Cooper has offered, to refund to the city the amount that bas been expended since the fund has been raised, for the purpose of locat ing or inducing new factories to come to this city. While the mere refund ing of the money will not better the conditions to anyw notable" extent, gome of the trustees are In favor of allowing the big corporation to do so. The Resolution. The following Is the resolution that will be presented to the executive committee: "Whereas it appears to the board of trustees of the industrial fund of the Chamber of Commence that the '•Mi8shJBlp|l River Power company Is hot disposed to offer rates on power to industries locating in or likely to locate In or near Quincy, and "Whereas, it seems unwise, In our Opinion, to continue expending the fund provided by our citizens unttl satisfactory arrangements as~to rates ana delivery .of power, have been made with the Mississippi River Power company "Therefore, be is resolved that we request the executive committer of the Chamber of Commerce to advise us as to whether it Is'wise to con tinue the expenditures from said fund, other than on contracts now entered into, and on negotiations now actually pending with prospective in dustries, until satisfactory, arrange ments have been made with the Mis sissippi River, Power company, as to ra:es and delivery of power." A statement of all money expended irom the-fund, TTicludiug Industrial Agent Wilson's salary, money ex pended for roadwork, Wilson's per sonal expenses, and such penses as have been incurred, has been prepared by Secretary Perry.

BATTLESHIPS LEAVE RIVER ANCHORAGE Impressive Sight When Th^y Steamed 3 Past the Statue of Lloerty Today. [United Press Leased Wire Service NEW YORK, Oct. 15.—For the first time in years all traffic on the North river was halted for hours to day. The reason was, the final review of the Atlantic fleet which ^teamed out to sea past the converted, yacht Mayflower with President Taft on her bride. The review was one of the most wonderful spectacles ever pre sented In American'waters and 'was witnessed by thousands who crowded the river docks and the great fleet of passenger craft that was anchored near the Mayflower in the upper bay. The Mayflower today took position off Bedloe's Island shortly before ten o'clock. Promptly at that hour all river craft were ordered to tie up be tween the Mayflower's anchorage and Fort Washington by Commander Bul lard, U. S. N.. in charge of the regu lation of traffic. The weather was beautiful and the great fighting machines presented a other ex-! most impressive spectacle as steam- ing in single column formation they passed down the bay, each saluting with twenty-one guns the flag of the president, flying from the Mayflower in the very shadow of the Statue of Liberty. ..

The would-be slayer extolled the virtues of Elsie Zeigler whom, he said, was a beautiful girl and whom he had planned to marry when every thing was right "Have you never had another sweet heart?" asked a reporter. "No," said Schrank, "that would not be right to Elsie." "When she went down on the Gen eral Slocum, I thought of suicide and did not know how I could live without her," he continued. "I resolved to be true to Elsie, and have never had another sweetheart." Schrank told jail officials today that he was hungry. A plate of sausage and bread and a cup of coffee was set before him. He took a bite of the food and left it untouched, saying that his appetite had failed him. i-sft' $5,000 Bail. MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 14—John Schrank, the fanatic who attempted the life of Colonel Theodore Roose velt here last night, was arraigned in district court today, pleaded guilty and was bound over on $5,000 bail to the next term of municipal court which convenes December 10th. The wouldJbe assassin of Colonel Roosevelt was extremely nervous when brought into the court room sur rounded by a heavy detail of deputies. His fingers twitched and he rubbed his hands together constantly as he glar from side to side at the crowd of curious spectators. Judge Neelen read- the warrant. "How do you plead, guilty or not guilty?" asked the court. "Guilt answered Schrank in a low voice "You are charged with a serious crime," interrupted District Attorney Saeble, "you have a right to waive ex anrnation and be bound over for trial later or to have an immediate hear ing. Which do you choose?" The prisoner hesitated a moment and stated he desired to waive ex amination and have his trial set at a later date. Judge Neelen immediately ruled that the man should face the Decem ber term of the municipal court and set his bond at $5,000. Schrank was taken back to the county jail where he lapsed into a state of quiet and contrary to earlier hours of the day refused to talk to anyone.

CRAIG EXPLAINS Separate Chapter to be Passed by the Legislature Will Prob- ably be Pro- 4 posed. The concensus of opinion of the Iowa Library Association which has Just ended its annual meeting at Ne vada was that public libraries should be removed from control by the cities and placed under state government. It is probable that a bill providing the above will be introduced in the next session of the legislature. The place which the library has un der the commission. form of. govern ment was also under discussion. The Keokuk library 1b the property of the association formed to carry: out the terms of the first bequest and. is leased to the city for fifty years in Broadway order to bring it under municipal con trol and receive the benefits which accrue through such control. The assoclatipn wishes the library placed on an equality with the schools in matters of government and allot ment of support. John E. Craig, who is a member of the legislative, board appointed by the president of the Iowa Library As sociation said today: "It was developed In the discussion that the association would be in favor of an independent chapter on libraries and their operation that fchould be passed by the legislature making the operation of libraries in the state In dependent of the other departments of the municipal governments." "They also thought that because of it's being a system of the state that the libraries should be on the same basis that the school system is on and it is probable that the committee will recommend some suitable lawj,f when they meet. ion that there should be some definite bill making the laws uniform through out the state with regard to the num ber of trustees.
