' Hart In Fall From Scaffolds Losing his hold on a rope, F. J. Woods, G04 Main street, is in the hospital with serious injuries as a result of plunging 25 teet to the ground, when he fell from a scaf- , folding at the Purity Oats plant Friday morning. Woods had been working but half an hour when the accident occurred. He was on a temporary structure erected around the oats company's plant, when he lost his balance. He seiz ed a dangling rope, but the force 'of the fall was so great that the friction on his hands caused him to drop the line when 25 feet from the ground. Striking on his side 'and hips, he sustained a wrenched hack, and it was feared that the spine had been broken. No bruis ed bones were revealed by the cursory examination" of the physi cian. The ambulance was called and Woods speeded to Mercy hos pital, where an X-ray was taken of his injured back. Dr. V. Neufeld, tn charge of the injured man, dis covered the dislocation of a verte brae in Woods' back, after an ex amination of . the photograph. Woods will recover, the physician aid.

James E. Lindsay, purchased a tract of land adjoining East River park on the west and presented it to the park board. The tract is 180 feet square. It is located on the north side of East River street, near Mound street. George Lindsay and Fred Wyman, representing the L,masay neirs, have made a con tract to purchase the tract of the J. B. Frahm Fuel & Construction company and have donated their rights to the park board. In con sideration of their generous pres ent the park commissioners have changed the name of the present East River park to Lindsay park. James E. Lindsay, for whom the park is renamed, died a few years ago after an active business career. A prominent citizen for many years, he bad amassed a fortune in the lumber trade and was one ol the largest mill operators in the Upper Mississippi valley. Members of the park board, as soon as title is perfected to the new tract, and formal transfer made, will plas the parking of the new park add J tion.

This gives the new organization the use of the buildings owned by the Artillery Holding company on the Brady street road. Sufficient funds have been guaranteed to engage an ex perienced army officer for organ izer. He will devote bis entire time to the work. Civic interests have united to back the new unit. The organization meeting will be held Monday evening of next week at 7:30 o'clock in the Times audi ditorium on Second street. Ottesen Not to Bun Realff Otte sen announced Friday that he will not be candidate for county attor ney on the Republican ticket at the June primaries. Attorney Otte sen's friends recognize this deter mination as tantamount to an an nouncement that the assistant state's prosecutor will sacrifice his aspirations on the altar of ambi tion. In his action Ottesen gives a clear field to John P. Weir, his office colleague under Henry H. Jebens. Ia surrendering a cher ished ambition, Ottesen is known to be bowing to the advice of his best and closest friends., These friends frank lily admit that, in their opinion, Ottesen would have small show ot winning even if he received the nomination at the hands of his party. v STOCKS RALLY ViHII CEViS OF STRIKE OREAK New York, April 17.

Two thousand Eagles from Rock Island, East Moline, Davenport and from 'other cities helped Moline Eagles celebrate the burning of the mortgage ' on their fraternal home at the corner of Sixth ave nue and Fourteenth street at 9 o'clock last night. Spectators ap plauded enthusiastically while the Eagles shrilled a wild accompani ment to the small bonfire blazing solemnly. When the fire had burned out the little piece of paper which had hung ove$ the building at the southeast corner for the last nine years had turned to gray ashes. On May 11, 1909, eleven years after founding of tbe Fraternal Order of Eagles, Charles Goldstein, then president of the Moline aerie, appointed a building . committee which was finally instrumental in building the clubhouse in front of which the bonfire burned last night. On April 10, 1910, the cornerstone was laid and on Nov. 22, 1910, the home was formally accepted and opened. Banquet at Club. Last night's celebration began with a banquet at the Moline club, 600 Eagles attending the dinner. It was one of the largest dinner crowds ever assembled in the club rooms. Following the dinner a pa rade which excelled any similar af fair ever staged by the fraternal order of this community was form ed. It was headed by a platoon of police and the officers of the aerie. The procession left the club house at 8:30 on its march through Mo line's business section. Speakers at the. banquet last night included Judge Albert B. Duncan of St. Joheph, Mo., past grand president of the order, Mayor C. P. Skinner, President Meyers and William M. Whiteside, the toast master. The name of Charles Goldstein drew repeated applause from the large crowd of Eagles. &r. Goldstein was scheduled for an ad dress but was coralled by a num ber of old friends and was unable to press through the crowd to the speakers platform. Mr. Whiteside emphasized the Americanism or the order and de clared the accomplishment of last evening was possible only because of American institutions. He ap pealed to Moline Eagles to continue to be loyal Americans and to set out for new accomplishments. - "There is no question in the minds of the people but what the Eagles in Moline are up and doing." said Mayor Skinner. "They are do ing things for the people of Mo line." Past President Duncan declared Moline aerie is much more fortun- jate than Eagles in other parts of America auu appealed to me mo line lodge to help those who are struggling to accomplish what Mo line has done. "It's the help yon bring to some body else that makes this organiza tion great. There are millions of men in America who need to be taught patriotism and brotherhood and I appeal to you to aid in this work." Moline Obituary Mrs. Augusta Appleberg.

Miss Gertrude Dobson. general Red Cross worker, is working with local chapter to investigate condi tions and determine what relief is necessary for the victims of the overflowed district near New Bos ton. Red Cross officials stated this morning that as far as relief is concerned there is little actual want in the flooded district but the workers will devote their ef fort towards assisting che farmers in rehabilitating. It is expected that steps will be taken to secure from the Rock Island two sand dredges to pump the water out of the low lands into the Mississippi If these pumps can be secured and put to work within a few weeks it may be possible to plant some crops on the land which is now under water. Congressman W: J. Graham of Aledo will be urged to use his influence in securing these pumps, as well as material with which to repair the levees and roads which have been ruined by the water. Many miles of road are under water in the Bay island dis trict and as soon as possible it is expected that the road commission ers will concentrate their forces in the community and make the roaas ni ror tramc According to Red Cross officials the reports that several farms have been pilfered of movable articles are untrue. As soon as the water was on farms, steps were taken to guard the property. It is expected that a great number of those who were forced to leave their homes will be able to return within the next few weeks. A committee composed of Mer cer county Red Cross members has been appointed to work with Miss Dobson and the sum of $200 has been authorized by the county chapter to carry on this work. As soon as a survey which is be ing made in the flooded district is completed the workers will be able to make an accurate estimation of the relief needed. Miss Dobson is being assisted in interviewing all the flood victims by Miss Maggie Petrie, secretary of the Mercer county home section of the Red Cross. LEGION .
