The Difference Between Giving It Direct and When It to Merely to the Acent fur Another Two Decisions In Point In the Circuit Court. In the circuit court yesterday aTter noon Judge Bigelow gave his decision in tue case of hriwaru Murrin, indict ed for selling liquor to minors. The ruling was for the acquittal 01 tnc defendant and it is important, ns it is the first instance in Kock Island county where a iudjje has defined the difference between selling liquor to minors direct and giving it to them for others. The Schaffer boys in the iustaucc complaiucd of were sent to Murrin's by Daniel lie-Master, au employe in a bakery a block from there, and I he beer was purchased for McMaster. This was the point raised by William McEniry, attorney for the defense, upon the agreement as to the state of facts w ith State s Attorney Searle. The .law under the dram shop act holds that no one shall sell or give intoxicating liquors to minors without consent 01 par ents, guardians orphvstcian, and the penalty for the violation of this clause is not less than (20 or more than 1 100. The Judge' Decision In this case Judge Bigelow held that to constitute a salts or gift of in toxicating liquor it is necessary that the legal title shall pans from ven dor to vendee. Hut in this case the agreed state of facts showed that the Schaffer boys received liquor as agent of another, and as a well settled priuciple of law that the title ml properly could not pass from vendor to agent, and the boys' receiving the liquor in th; capacity of agents could not receive the title to the liquor. Hence the sale was not to the boys, but to the man who sent them for the liquor. Henco Murrin was not liable under the statutes lor selling liquor to minors. Not Hern Derided ISefore. This question has not been de cided by the supreme court of this state, and it was the first time the question was ever raised in the cir cuit court o? Kock Island county. The point contended by Mr. McEniry that a sale of liquor could not be made to an agent has been sustained by three decisions of the supreme court of Massachusetts under a stat ute similar to that In this state, which decisions were followed by Judge Bigelow. JVInrtin round Guilty. In the afternoon Jack Martin was found guilty of one count for selling liquor to a minor in the person of James Shannon, by the following jurors: L. K. Svkes, William Hice K. B. Kuschuiann, S. C. Bligh, George McUce, William Kirby, K. L". Alex, andcr, Frank Babcock, T. C. Wake field. John Shellv. W. II. McCurtv and A. B. Cox. The tine was placed at ?2d and costs. Mr. McEnirv, for the defendant. did not deny his guilt in selling in toxicants to the boy, who repre sented that the goods were tic- siied for other parties, whereas tl e lad used the liquor himself and be came drunk. The court contended that Mr. Martin was iruiltv in so far as he was responsible for the conse quence of the intoxicants while in the minor's possession, and until they wore delivered over to the purchas ing party. State's Attorney Searle prosecuted, assisted by M. E. Sweeny, employed by the W. C. T. U. The case was given to th jury at 6 o'clock, and after a few hours' delib eration returned a verdict, lindicg Mr. Martin guilty on one count, three charges being held against him. ETTA AFTER MclNTIRE. 1821 Second Ave. Opposite the Harper House j A Thrilling t.sperlence. The Molinc Dispatch has the fol lowing account of a thrilling acci dent in a that city Monday afternoon: A miraculous escape from what seemed imminent death occurred to Fred, the 11-year old son of A. II. F. Mueller, yesterday afternoon, on Fourth avenue near Twelfth street. Ho was riding iu the bick of au open buggy, driven by Louis Kitt, adeliv eryman for John II. Mueller, the boy's uncle, when the horse suddenly shied at the street car, or some other noise, and turned directly across the track in front of the car "which was going at a good rate of speed. The car was too clos.i upon the wagon to check its speed, and struck the vehi cle with great force, throwing the boy high in the air, he alighting be tween the wagon and the car while the latter was still going along at a fast rate. With a presence of mind surprising in the lad's years, ho seised hold of the guard just under and in front of the car, w here, hold ing on, he was dragged until the motorman stopped the car. The ex cited motormnn got oil expecting to tind A mangled boy. but the little fellow was out from under the car nhead of him and entirely unhurt. His mother was sitting on the pare 1 at his home, 1204 Fourth avenue, a witness to the horrifying accident, and to her the boy immediately has tened to assure her he was unhurt. The wagon and driver suffered no injury, they leing only pushed along by the car. Today the little bny is ail over the scare,' though his mother has not recovered fully from the ner vous shock." 1..10 to I'eerut unit Itrturn St SO On the excursion Sunday. July 21.

In the September terra of court Etta Trovillo will attempt to compel William Mclntire to remit to the ex tent of $1,250 the amount awarded her against Malcolm McPhail for his tampering with her fluttering heart. The suit will come under the title of a garnishee. It will be remembered that immediately after the verdict ia the breach of promise suit McPhail disposed of his interest to his part ner, William Mclntire. She Thinks It Shun. The widow is strongly of the opin ion that the transfer was a sham and that the wily Malcolm still re tains hi interest in the property, al though he has flown to a northern clime, with thij pretention of re maining henceforth away from the scenes of former days. The court has allowed her the amount, and as she believes Malcolm's finances are in the possession of Mclntire, she will endeavor to make the lutter pro duce through a legsl process of gar nishee. William McEniry is repre senting Etta in this matter. THE SCHOOL LEVY. Hoard ol Education Ask. for 3J Per Cent of the Assessed Valuation. The board of education at a meet ing last evening adopted a recom mendation of the linance committee iu ordering a lovy of 2 per cent for general uses and 1J per cent for building purposes on the assessed valuation of the city property. What this will aggregate depends upon the deliberations of the state board of equalization which meets in Springlield in October, when the school district valuation will be either reduced or advanced or prob ably not altered in the lr-a.-t. If the latter, the income will be about the same as last year, when it was (73, 000. The directors state tht it is not their desire to permit an increase in the levy. In the past live years the levy was inerca.se t thus wise: In 189!) it was $J0.OO.: 18'Jl. $52,500; 1893, $75,000; (78,000; 1895, (?) Auunnl Census. The census report submitted by W. L. Sweeney shows an increase in scholars over last year of 2C7. This gain comes almost entirely from either end of the city, while in some of the central wards the increase has been very light, the Fifth decreasing 15. t or illustration, in the Seventh ward the train was 12i, and in the First 73. This further bespeaks the necessity of additional buildings in the extreme portions, which the board has under contemplation, the contract for one structure having been let.

Council Changes Front on Alley Paving Despite the Mayor. RECONSIDERS ITS TO WISE ACTION. Necessary to Apprml Fiona the Decision of the CLalr Before the Aldermen Could Accomplish Their Move The Snnb on the Saloon Question. Dospite the contrary position taken by Mayor Knox, the improvement of the alleys will be pushed along. On returning from their inpectiou trip about G o'clock last evening a num ber of the aldermen seemed to realize the unwise precedent established the night before, and resolved to recon sider it even at the sicrifice of a little jar between themselves and the mayor, who declared a motion to reconsider out of order, holding that the meeting was called for a specific purpose. Some of tho aldermen contended that it was merely a continuation of the session of the night before. Aid. Nelson presented the motion for reconsider ation and received a second from Aid. Maucker, but the mayor in sisted on its illegality, and Aid. Kennedy appealed from the decision of the chair. The mayor put the motion, asking if the chair should Ik) sustained, and it was defeated 3 to 5. There was a debate as to the constitutionality of the action from a parliauientarr standpoint, but it tinally went, and so will the paving. Prior to the session, the council in a body investigated certain grades in the Sixth and Second ward and in spected the Thirtieth street paving. The latter was approved, and It is a very line piece of work and a credit to Contractor Wheelan. The Sunday Enforcement. Either Mayor Knox was innocently submissive to a snub on the part of the council in the matter of the en forcement of the Sunday saloon law, or he was willing that the council should take from him thercsponibil ty vested in the executive of the city to enforce municipal law, in the coun cil's attitude Monday night iu the adoption of Aid. Kennedy's motion instruct'ng Chief of Police Etzel to enforce the law requiring an abso lute suspension of Sunday liquor trnlliu. It is the duty of tho council, as it is of 'all legislative bodies, to make laws; it is the duty of the ex ecutive of a municipality.as of a state, to enforce law. The council, there fore, transgressed its authority in calling upon the marshal to sec that tho laws of the city are executed, and in doing so it insulted the mayor. whether he wished to take it so or not. There have been mayors of Rock Island before who have de clined to put such motions as Aid. Kennedy offered, though not per taining to the same subject; and without discussing the issue involved the prcscot mayor would have stood more on the dignity of his office had he have outlined to the aldermen his duty in the premises, as well as theirs. If ordinances arc deliberate ly violated it is the mayor's duty to apply the remedy, unless the coun cil is disposed to stamp him as in competent or negligent.
