Lawrence Pedigo, right hand

ment on a charge of being one of
me muraerers or Gabel, was sub-
peted to an intense grilling by H. I mittee has adopted a resolution op

Pedigo was closeted in a small,
unoccupied office room, adjoining
the board of supervisors' hall, in
the courthouse, at 11:30 o'clock,
and at a late hour this afternoon
tbe questioning process was still
going on. The utmost secrecy was
observed in the attempt to gain a
confession of guilt irom Pedigo
which would prove convincing evi
dence not only against himself, But
against four or five other occu
pants of the Gabel death car. No
one put the officers was permitted
to approach the supervisors' room.
The avenue was carefully guarded
by Patrolmen William Epperson
and John Kinney of the Rock Is
land police force, both officers
having been detailed to the court
house thia morning in plain clothes
to apt upon orders, of Mr. Mosher
to bring' in any witnesses or make
arrests which' he might order at
this time.
The first of the witnesses heard
in the Gabel case was Frank Eck
strom, formerly proprietor of the
1-2-3-4 bar on Second avenue and
Fifteenth street, which was owned
by Louis Ortell, Looneyhenchman.
The supposition is that Eckstrom,
having been on the inside of the
Looney vice operations, has certain
well formed ideas of who killed
Gabel; and that in the face of the
downfall of the king and the ar
rest or Pedigo, is anxious to tell
what he knows.
Among the other witnesses who
will be heard today Is R. C. Gosse,
prohibition agent, who was operat
ing in Rock Island at the time
uabe! was murdered, and who ia
said to have received important
evidence from Gabel bear ine on

- The' Joint committee represent
ing Angustana hospital. Chicago,
and Lutneran hospital. Moline, met
yesterday in Chicago to review the
results of tbe hoeyite.1 appeal that
has been carried on throughout the
churches of the Lutheran Illinois
conference. ; - v
Dr. c, E. Houston, Chicago, tbe
director of the campaiga, reported
that the churches had thus far rais
ed S4i,0OO which represented the
reports from only M of tbe 165
churches la the conMreaeo. In ad
dition to this each hospital report
ed thar-scattering pledges had been
received from various sources
amounting to $7,000 for each insti
tution, and that if this was added
to the church ubacriptiout that the
total results of the appeal ao far
amounted to $SO,000.
The director in commenting upon
the failure of nearly 100 churches
to carry on the every-member can
vass during the week of Oct. 15-22,
said that it can largely be attrib
uted to the rapid success of appeals
that have been made to the churches
68 !
during the past three years.
, Expect $la,00 Here.
IP is estimated that the -Moline
hospital can expect at least $lt,000
in addition to the $5,000 that has
already been pledged to the local
institution from the churches out
side of the Rock Island district
One ' ot the' interesting reports
made at the meeting yesterday was
that the uncertainty of the econom
ic conditions have tended to pre
vent substantial subscriptions, that
people generally will make a small
donation in cash but refute to ex
tend their promlse over a period of
months. Thlt was particularly no
ticeable from the reports coming in
from the country churches. These
reports fell way below their quota,
but In almost every instance the
subscriptions were accompanied by
cash. ,
