Davenport Heirs Willing to Sell
Council to Act
The ciy council at its meeting' to
night will pass on an ofl'cr of the Dav
enport, heirs of a sale of a strip of
land comprising five acres just north
of Reservoir park.
The tract lies between Eleventh and
Twelfth avenues and Twenty-second
and Twenty-fourth streets. Connelly
Connelly, representing the Misses
Davenport, the owners of the land,
ask $1,2."0 per acre for it.
Mayor McConochie thinks the price
asked a trifle steep. He places the
valuation at $S()0 per acre, and be
lieves the city council would author
ize the purchase if the figure were re
duced to that amount.
The acquirement of the land is nec
essary to the proper development of
Reservoir park, and would bring the
latter to the brow of the hill. It now
falls 400 feet short of reaching that
point. Property in that section of
the city is finding a ready market, and
unless the city bids in the strip in
question it will be only a matter of a
short time until it will be phi t ted into
an addition and parceled out in lots.
l'nri'liase U !?iirallp.
The erection of houses on the brow
of the hill would spoil the effect of
Reservoir park, and it is hoped, the
city and the owners will get together
and atrree on terms of sale.

C. NEISWENDER PLEADS
GUILTY IN COUNTY COURT
Charles Neiswander. of f Moline,
pleaded guilty in the county court ti
an infirmation eharging four counts
of obtaining money by false pretenses.
A fine of $1 and costs and 10 days in the
workhouse was the penalty imposed
for each count by Judge Parmenter.
As the defendant had been in jail since
the 1.1th of October the court was dis
posed to be lenient with him. His
jail sentence was made concurrent.
and hence he will be set free in 10
days. The offense of which Xeis
wander was guilty was the circulation
of a subscript ion paper in Moline ti
raise money for Mrs. Hicks, widowed
mother of R. J. Hicks, a member I
Company F, whom Xeiswander re pro
scnted had met death in the Porte
liiean campaign. On investigation it
developed that Mrs. Hicks was not in
need, the subscription was being taken
without her knowledge or consertt.
