THE ARGUS, FRIDAY", AUGUST 27. 1897.
Good Crops Here And poor ones in many of the old countries, will have a tendency to make times better. With a evival of business an upward trend in prices may be looked for. It is in times like these that the thrifty hpusewife watches the store that is giving the biggest money values. No other store has ever given the grocery buy ers of Rock Island the every-day bargain sales that Shields' cash grocery Has Kept In To trade there means that instead of you seek ing bargains they will seek you. In the words of the sages of old: "If you would have lightning strike you put yourself in its way." Shields looks for bargains at wholesale as hard as you do in buying at retail, and when he finds one his trade in turn gets the benefit.

FULTQ11 AGA1I1 III RIOT Looking for Trouble as Soon as Their Injunction Is Dissolved. TAKE THE LAW IS THEIR HAHD8.

Fulton was riotous again last night. When the remedies at law sought by the anti-Woodmen ele ment wbich element embraces the entire population of the place, to gether with a large portion of that of l be automing cities ol Clinton ana Lyons on tbe lowa sde rati for Iaok of merit. Fulton with her Iowa allien takes the law into her own hands, and with the company she has armed without tbe authority ol the state. she holds things her own way until the master in chancery in the county comes to her relief. This master never fails in an emergency, al though his course has been pro nouocea by tbe courts to oe without foundation, and whose repeated de fiance of the order of court should stand him in contempt. Before Judge (isst had given his decision (n the tbtid master in chan cery injunction at the Rock Island court tauuwe yesterday, George An dres, of Clinton, Iowa, one of the complainants, slipped out and teie pboned up to fulton wbat was com ing. Thereupon iolton took tbe law into her bands again, and beforn thn news reached there of Judge tiest'a disposition of tbe ctse tbe ar. ran g-ments were Completed to defy tbe effect ot the trder of couit the minute it was known, and when the advices of the court's actions reached the e tbe aUrtn was at once sounded and 200 armed mm responded and took practical poss-ssion of the head clerks omue. ibe Woodmen em ployes were locked in the building where the offices are, and a guard put around tbe structure. A rope was fatened to the stairway at the rear of tbe buiMlog with which to wreck the stairs should any attempt ba made to remove the books. Tbe mail clerk, coming dou to mail some letters at 6 o clock, was or dered bark upitairs, and all were kept there until tbe train had left the o ty. This nnheard-ot ontrage in a civmz-o community was con tinued nntil tbe master in chancery couia nave time to isue a fourth in junction, which he did at 6:40 o' lock. Here is the way the Fulton repre- sentative of thn Chicago Record speaks of the performance: "Judge (jest at nork island today dissolved tbe li junction against tbe removal of Head Clerk Hawes' office of the Modern Woodmen of America from Fnlton. Acting upon information received and apprehending another nock island invasion, tbe riot alarm was turned in and Fulton's gun bri gada of 150 special police turned out at once. Handreds of excited people, including many from Iowa, thronged the streets, and the excitement was onlv partially allayed when Master in Chancery Mcrnerran granted an other in junction at 6:40 p. m. The town is on guard tonight." The report that the seal and char ter had been taken from Fulton on the news of the dissolution of the in junction was without foundation So one about the head clerk's office contemplated any such a course, and tne story bad its origin doubtless in tbe rattleheaded antics of the Fulton' ites. Boldfp tha Train. Two hundred of the Fulton mob fully armed boarded the 6 o'clock C B. A Q train from Duboque and searched it thoroughly, in oider that no one might escape from tbe town ith any of the property of the or der tne seals, charter, records, etc Conductor Lemmon's storjof the bold up was tn.t tbe men were not par ticnlarly disorderly, but his version is mild in comparison with that of passengers, who declared on reaching kock island, that tbe ruiton train in vaders acted l.ke a lot of wild eyed desperados and Indians, and that a gaogo' them went clear through to canton on the train, the state ot loan doubtless guaranteeing them protection in return for the iodiffer eoce tbe state of Illinois exhibit to tbe invasion of Illinois with Iowa arms. TheC.B A Q. train which came through Fnlton early this morning was likewise greeted by a moo at tne depot, but it was not en tered, it would be a wise policy for tne u.. a. u- to get some of Wev ler's armert d cars for the protecti n of its passengers going through r niton hereafter if they want to be protected from the outrages of the brigands wno nave entrenched themselves nn der the cover of law in that locality TUB Bl'LIifQ or JCD3E GEST. T i IX art's Faxttva r alt ai aa lb Ha - r. Praetie.. In dissolving the third master in chancery injunction yesterday after noon Judge Gest spoke in unmistak able terms of the practice on the part ot masters in chancery issuing injunctions repeatedly when those baaed oa practically the same ground aa been disposed ol bv a court. Judge Gest cited the opinion o the sup-erne court to show that the bole matter of the injunction should oa presented la its original consider tioa. If the practice was permitted by the courts of matters in chancery issuing injunctions over again as fast as they are disposed of by the judges, there wonld be no end to litigation of this kind. The same rnle might as consistently be applied to tbe circuit courts niter the higher courts, even tbe supreme court, had pass a upon their acts. Judge tiest held that he would have been full justified in dissolving the master's injunction without bearing the argu ments, yet be permitted the counsel for the plaintiff to be heard in order to learn if any new grounds bad been reached. The third It- junction, how ever, proved practically the same as tne nrst ana econa, ana aucn addi tional theories as were advanced were not tenable. Tbe fact that the in j anction was applied for in different names did not alter the nature of the the injunction. The court reviewed briefly the three injunctions that had been considered beisre him, and all took substantia'Iy tbe same ground except that numerous additions were made in tbe last two. Judge Gest spoke of the proceeding in issuing this subsi quent inj'inetion as extra ordinary, and he did it with such positive emphasis that it might well nave oeen regarded as a dignined re buke from the bench to all concerned in the securing of the injunction be ing passed upon. Tba Foarth iBjanetlan. The fourth ioiuootion issued yes terday was in the name of tbe town of Fulton, and is practically tbe ame one that the Jtane county judges declined to grant, bat the ob structionists seem to have an ever accessible court of last resort in tbe VVbite-ide master In chancery. The fact that the latest one is a- cured in the name of Fnlton would seem to indicate that tbe attorneys at the ruiton end have some misgiving as to exhausting tbe popolat'no of ul ton and Clinton in the application I a few mora are vet neoessarv to balk the courts of this district. The Wood m-n attorneys will, a soon as they receive a copy jf the injunction, give the usual 6-days' notice of motion to dissolve, but it is not to be doubted that the Fultonites, having selected the source t-om wbich tbe injunctions issue, will likewise insist upon naming the tri bunal that is to pass npon them. Without further meaos ot redress, the Woodmen should appeal to Ho v. Tanner to declare martial law in Ful ton and enable them to get their of fices and tbetr em plnyra away from the influences and oppression of those in whose composition wild west hoodlumism is thu most pro nounced characteristic. P. ilea Point. O Olson was fined $$ and costs list evening by Magi-trate Siaffoid. Tbe charge was drunkenness.

Finally be collided with H D. Eiwell. engineer for the brewing company, who handed him one which knocked him down It was several minutes before Anderson realized . wbat had happened. He recei-ed a bad gat-h in tbe lip in the encounter. Dr. J. R Hollowbosh sewed up tbe wound. Then Anderson was taken down in the patrol. He was released today, a sober and wiser man.

The A me bad gained great headway before they buret forth, aod the northeast corner of the building was well enveloped before the dis covery was made.

The epreat of th dtmes was effectually checked and the loss thereby held down. The building contained 12.000 worth of stock including woodea ware, wagon slock, stepladdars, barb wire, ba-ket ware. etc. The loss is estimated at f 1,600 on which thre is $l,0i 0 insurance in the London As surance corporation, of Hurst & Donaldson' agencv Tbe insurance on the building is f 600 ia the Paoifi i. ot New York, and J.
