Twelfth Street tad Fifth Aveaae. Thorn 123 'I 1 1 1 BO III. DAVENPORT DOTS A special citizens' meeting was held yesterday afternoon at 3: CO o'clock in the rooms of the Davenport Business Men's association, to consider the question raised a short time ago whether the Rock Island should be al lowed to place fares on the train bearing workmen to and from New Shops and this city. Action taken ct the meeting consisted of appointing a committee of three to confer with the Rock Island railway officials in regard to the train. The members are: Col. Nutting, Maj. M. L.. Marks and M. J. Eagal. Another cleverly forged draft was discovered yesterday at the First Na tional bank in this city, similar to the one which they received several months ago. Upon the previous one the forger recived f Moo at Kansas City, but uixjn the one rceived by the local bank yesterday, which was in the sum of $.jmi, it is not thought the guilty party succeedd in receiving any cash. A peculiar instance in connection with both of the drafts is that they were forged by the same party, who signed his name as G. L. Morton. At the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Werner Dallenbach, 1C02 Harri son street. Sunday afternoon, occurred the death of Eniil Werner Dallenbach, aged three months. o The death of the 2-nionths old son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbrt Owens occur red at the home of its parents 32SV2 Harrison street Sunday afternoon. Sunday at the home of its parents, on the Jersey Ridge road near the city limits occurred the death of Gladys Man Van Dyke, at the age of 1 months. Kugene G. Swan, formerly the local commercial agent for the C, B. & Q has left for Cleveland, O.. where he will assume his new duties as travel ing passenger agent for the road, with headquarters in that city. His wife and son will remain here for a month or longer before joining Mr. Swan at his new home. o The German Pioneers' association. which was organized on the occasion of the golden jubilee of the Davenport Turner society two years ago, and has now a roll of 7" members, will hold its tliird animal reunion and festival at Turner hall. Tuesday. Sept. IS. The organization consists of all those Ger mans who came to Scott county prior to the year 1S.12. and is known offici ally as the German Pioneer association of Scott county. o The SCtli animal Kinys festival of the Davenport Shooting society will be held at Schuetzen park next Sun day and Monday. The program of the event for Sunday will consist of tar get events, which will begin at 10 o'clock that morning after a breakfast served at the park. Willam H. Reg emutter was the king of the shoot last year, and he will preside at the range this year until his successor has been proclaimed. The shoo; will bo conclud ed at j:'', o'clock in the evening. Mon day evening at 7 o'clock the shooters will again assemble at the park when the new king will be proclaimed. At S o'clock will begin a dance anil a summer night's festival and at 9 o'clock the crowning of the new king will be held. Mrs. John Jenen, 1"n West Second street, had a very narrow escape from meeting with serious injuries. While descending the stairs in the darkness she slipped :ind fell at the top in such a manner as to pitch headforemost down the entire flight. Her head and body were severely bruised and her face badly cut. Yesterday was settling up day with everybody connected with the combin ed races and carnival held last week at the Davenport mile track. As a consequence checks in both large and small amounts were freely signed by Treasurer A. W. Vander Veer. While no official statement has been given out in reference to the money taken in during the week, it was reiorted on apparently reliable authority that the Davenport Mile Track association would clear about f s.im'mi as a result of last week's event. This is a record- breaker for them and makes it the banner year in the history of the as sociation. Last week's attendance al so eclipsed by far that of any former year at the mile track. AYhile the car nival shows were rather poorly pat ronized, still Proprietor Barnes comes out on the riir'u side of the ledger, and while he did not make as much money as he expected to. lie himself realized that he might have fared much worse, and he left Davenport well satisfied. o The citizens of this city, the alumni It burns them ffcT Rat micfn bt;m UmT ftflinff timid after etuiif Stearns' Electric Rat and Roach Pasta Tbej rtinb out of doora for ir nT w wr, and quickly dir.

Mr. McManus is a former student of the school and was a member of the champion foot ball team in "9S. After leaving high school Mr. McManus went to Purdue university and played tackle on the football teams there for four years un til he was injured in the Indianapolis wreck last fall. His athletic record is an excellent one and has placed him among the best. "Jocko" Manwaring, for years the recognized king of the red light dis trict on the East Side, announces that he is going to sell out his saloon and dance hall and engage in the" show business. The ambulance was called to the home of Frank Berg, of the f.rm of Berg Bros., to convey him from his residence, on LeCIaire street and Kirk- wood boulevard to St. Luke's hospital. Mr. Berg slightly injured one of his hands a few days ago and Sunday it was fouud he was suffering from blood poisoning. Dr. Raymond Peck has him in charge and held a consul tation with Drs. Matthey regarding the case. INTERESTING. IF IT IS TRUE Sterling Version of Plans of Missis sippi Valley Traction Company. Sterling papers allege to have in side information of the plans of the Mississippi Valley Traction company for the extension of the East Moline & Watertown interurban road farther east and north. The Sterling Gazette says that C. H. Deere "is considering the advisability of extending his line to Albany, thence to Morrison, and probably from Morrison to Clinton. Iowa. Mr. Deere has recently gone over the proposed route beginning at Albany and going east to Erie, Den rock and thence north to Morrison From that place he drove to Clinton at which place the proposed line would connect with the road already in oper ation running south to Davenport. "A survey of the line will soon be made and the usual estimates secured and if the project is feasible, there is no doubt but that Mr. Deere will build. He is a capable railroad man, and is backed by unlimited capital, and all the projects he has undertaken in the vicinity of Rock Island and Moline and the surrounding towns have been successful; and each line has proved profitable. The line which he con templates building from Albany will be about CO miles in length, the sec tion from Morrison to Clinton will be about 10 miles long. "With an almost practical certainty that the Sterling. Dixon & Eastern will build an extension of its road from this city to Morrison and the high probability that Mr. Deere will carry out his project, the people of Sterling may look forward to an ex cellcnt railway service west of this city. It will be possible when the pro posed lines are built, to go a long dis tance by electricity. Passengers may travel to Clinton, using the Iliggins and Deere lines, and there they could connect with another interurban sys tem for Davenport. Rock Island and Moline. Other railway projects are under way and if all of these are car ried out, the extent of the electric traveling facilities will be greatly in creased." Tips to TratJelcrs.

Battles Fifth avenue pharmacy was robbed by a sneak thief early Sunday morning, the robber getting $25 or $30 in cash and making his escape. The store was opened as upsual in the morning by one of the clerks, who saw nothing wrong at the time. When Mr. Battles arrived he found the drawer in the cash regis try empty where Saturday night there had been enough to begin business with in the morning. It is supposed that after the clerk opened up the store he had occasion to leave the front part of the store, and that in his absence some neak thief entered, tapped the drawer and made his es cape with the cash. P. A. Welander. 1226 Sixth avenue, was seriously injured Sunday night. He was returning home on a Fourth avenue car and at the corner of Thir teenth street and Thirteenth avenue when he attempted to alight he fell, cutting three gashes on the left side of his head just above the temple. It will be several days before he will be able to get around. o Mrs. Maria Loett. aged fS years at tempted to alight from a street car, Saturday night before it had come to a stop and was thrown to the pave ment, bruising her body and cutting a gash in the back of her head. o Alva, 5 V. -months-old son of Mr and Mrs. William Cox, 920 Fourth avenue, died yesterday morning of cholera in fantum. The remains were shipped to Port Byron. Arthur W.. infant son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Efflandt, 202 Fourth avenue died Sunday afternoon affer a short illness with cholera infantum. Joe Smith, of Coaltown. fell and broke his left arm between the elbow and shoulder while playing ball Sun day afternoon. The break is a serious one. Mr. and Mrs. Max Stelzner are doubly bereaved by the death of their infant son. Otto, who expired of sum mer complaint at the age of 4 months. The child is the second of twins to pass away, Alfred having died only a few days ago. o Mayor W. H. Saunders and the city council from Centerville, Iowa, arc in the city inspecting the asphalt pave ment. Centerville is the county seat of Appanoose county, and has a popu lation of nearly G.ooo inhabitants. It is situated in the rich mining districts near the center of the state on the border of the state of Missouri. The citizens are enterprising people and they realize that it is necessary to pave their streets. The question arose whether brick or asphalt paving should be used, and it was decided to senil the city fathers to Moline on an inspection tour. o Printers employed by the Moline Printing company walked out yester day on a strike, because the company would not pay a fine assessed by the union on the office for the use of bor rowed type. As a result the company will employ other men and run an open shop in the future. The type was set in the composing room of the Jour nal and delivered to the Moline Print ing company for running off several thousand circulars for a local mer chant, a third party. Charles Smith, chairman of the executive commit tee of the Tri-City Typographical union, who is foreman of the Journal and delivered the form to the printers, demanded the fine of $7.75 on behalf of the union. This was assessed by the union at the rate of 10 cents a column inch and three times he was refused payment and after that called out the men on a strike. The com pany in a statement by Mr. Steinnort, declared that it should have had warning of the fine when the type was delivered to it, or should be given hearing before such an assessment against it, declaring that it is paying higher wages than the union scale.

PAUL ROAD REDucES FIGURES FOR THE TRIP NEARLY THREE HOURS. HIGH SPEED ON ENTIRE RUN Arrangement With the Union Pacific Marks Important Change in West ern Traffic. With a new time card effective Sun day, July 10, the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul railway eliminates two hours and forty five minutes from thu running time of passenger trains be tween Chicago and Denver. Under the schedule that has been prepared, the Overland Limited train, operated jointly by the Union Pacific and the St. Paul, reduces its time between the two cities from 2S hoars and 45 minutes to 2G hours. The distance between Chicago and Denver is considerably over I.OOii miles, which means a rate of about forty miles an hour for the entire dis tance. Eastbound the time is cut even deeper than westbound, three full hours being eliminated from the sched ule between Denver and Chicago. By the rearrangement the Overland Limited of the St. Paul road leaves Chicago at C:05 p. m. and arrives in Denver at 8 o'clock the following night. Eastbound the train leaves Denver at 4:20 p. m. and arrives in Chicago at 9:55 p. m. the next day. To line up with the new schedule the train that left Chicago at 9:45 a. m. is operated only as far as Omaha, and its leaving hour from Chicago is changed from 9:45 a. m. to 7:15 a. m.
