While the chief of police was
dreaming through the halcyon days
aown on tbe farm as pictured in
The Old Homestead" at Harper's
theatre Saturday night, the busy
burglar was making a systematic
tour of the modern homestead in the
resident portion of the city. Undis-
mayea Dy tbe trapping or Lasbley,
one of the night prowlers, the night
oeiore. ana tbe tact tbat tbe city's
guardians had avowed that they
were on the trail of another of the
nocturnal marauders, the burglars
continued to burgle. The raid of
Saturday night was not so success.
iui as tbat of the two previous
nights, but the burglar was around
just the same, and bis good intentions
were witn mm.
Nineteenth and Twentieth streets
south of Ninth avenue was the scene
of operations. The same tactics em
ployed on the occasion of the previ
ous visit to that locality earlier in
the week were used, and the bold
ness displayed by the men ie some
thing amazing. But two houses,
those of W. B. Mclntyre, 919 Twen
tieth street, and Dr. George E. Bab
cock, corner of Nineteenth street and
Tenth avenue, were entered Satur
day night; at least they are the only
onea tbat have been heard from.
The work was no doubt done by
three young fellows who were prow
ling about the neighborhood in the
early part of the evening. One of
tbe trio was a bov. who was sent
ahead to do the feeling."

The boy would call at a residence,
ring the door bell, and if a response
came he would assume a pitiful
look, unravel a hard luck storv. and
ak for something to eat. Should
the ring rot be answered the two
would be notified, and concluding
that the occupants of the house were
away, they would proceed to gain an
entrance. The boy would remain on
tbe outside and do the "whist act."
Tbe boy called at several houses in
the neighborhood where tbe folks
happened to be in, and when he
would be told to wait until tie lady
of the house could get him some food,
he would light out and continue his
campaigning. It is thought Dr.
Babcock's house was entered first.
The back door was pried open. About
twenty pieces of tableware were
A party was being held at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Welch,
918 Twentieth street, while the burg
lars were at work. Mrs. Weloh no
ticed two men on the porch of Mr.
Mclntyre' house across the street.
They left, evidently being frightened
away. The noticing of the men at
Mr. Mclntyre's house brought np a
discussion of the burglar question in
the party. It became so interesting
that Mr. Mclntyre decided to investi
gate. A few gentlemen friends ac
companied him. Sure enough, the
house had been entered, the burg
lars opening a rear window. But
they got nothing.
This set Dr. Babcock to thinking.
He went home only to finl the
house all illuminated. Tbe burglars
had also been there, and had flown.
The police were notified, but have
no clue of the burglars.
A committee from the Rod nun
Rifles called on the police Saturday
night and proffered their f-erviocs
until such timo as this gang, which
has evidently instituted a systematic
robbery of tbe city's homes, can b

Business men along Twentieth

have signed a protest to tbe mayor
against issaing a license to another et

the remonstrance in the mayor's
hands, but as he is out of the city it
is not known what action will be
taken. No license has as yet been
issued; but the arrangements prepar
atory to opening the saloon are going
ahead, evidently in anticipation of
the essential authority being granted.

DEATH OF MRS. BOBBINS. jTflE Tjjjj COUNCIL.
Lady irans Ha Last at
Mrs. Frank E. Bobbins, 735 Twen
ty-second street, died at 4 o'clcck
this morning at Cedar ' Sapid,
whither she went for medical treat
ment seven weeks ago. She had
been ailing about a year, an attack of
typhoid fever leaving effects which
aggravated other ailments, which
brought the end gradually nearer.
Mr. Bobbins was called to the bed-
aide of his wife, who was stopping
at the home of her brother George
Bay, Saturday, and this morning the
sad announcement of her death name.
Mrs Bobbins was 40 years of age.
her maiden name being Emma Bay.
Three children, Lucia May. Blanche
and Edward, are left with the be
reaved husband. The affliction that
haa come upon the fataer and the
children at home is unspeakable in
its sadness and attending circum
stances, intensified as they are by the
blow that has noire In the shocking
escapade of a son who has been
a lugitive from Kock island since
Saturday morning. It was with a
knowledge of the unfortunate state
of affairs that Tan Abqcs, while
making fall reference to the crimes
committed in Bock Island last week
and the apparently conclusive proof
which the police bad Saturday, elimi
nated in its issue of that day the
mention of the name of the one who
escaped. Whether, however, inti.
mation reached the distressed moth
er and thus hastened tbe end, or
whether the summons came as the
inevitable consequence of disease,
there comes to tbe grievionsly op
pressed husband the consoling
thought that the peace of God has
sparea tbe su tiering tbat only a
mother can endure.
Mrs. Bobbins was one of Bock Inl
and's most esteemed women. She
was tenderly devoted to her family,
and was prominent in church work
and in tbe cause of the W. C T. U.
She was greatly beloved, and much
sorrow will attend tbe announce
ment of her death.
The remains will arrive at :30 to.
