WOMEN ASK A TRIAL SIMPLY
Believe Jhey Can Convince 'Authori
ties and. Public of Need
The finance and police committees
of the city council to wiiom was re
ferred the petition of women of the
city for the enforcement of the general
ordinance providing for the appoint
ment of a police matron at a salary of
135 per month, has not held a meeting
yet, and therefore nothing has been
done in the direction of supplying this
Mayor McConochie stated this
morning that he expected that the
committees would get together at an
early date, at which time it would be
well for the women who have been
interesting themselves to put in an
appearance and familiarize the com
mitteemen with their views on the dut
ies and demands of a matron. The
mayor said personally he believed that
every large city should have such an
officer, but he did not agree with the
women that there was. need for a mat
ron in Rock Island.
Xot Tblw Yrar, Mayor v.
He said that it was only rarely
that a woman was brought in by the
police then it was usually a drunken
woman of the town. These characters
it was of the.opinion of the mayor,
iad almost passed the point where
the influence that a matron might
wield would be of good. However, he
agreed that the time was coming when
Rock Island should have a matron;
that is, when the city grew larger in
population, and there was more evil
in which the women shared. He said
the sentiment of the council, so far
as he had learned, was not favorable
to the appointment at this time, and
he did not believe that the petition
would be considered during the pres
ent fiscal year, at any rate.
Bfrmbrr Police Department.
There is a state law empowering by
cities of 20.000 to create the office
of police matron, and this law has
been embodied in the general ordin
ances of Rock Island. Under the head
of police department, it is stated that
the department shall consist, in addi
tion to the chief and given number
of patrolmen, of a police matron. But
the council has refused to make the
appointment. Why is not just plain
to the people of the city. The salary
is only $35 per month. More than
one woman known to be qualified for
the position has expressed a willing
ness, even a desire, to enter upon the
work at the compensation stated. One
of the chief excuses offered is that
there is no place in which a matron
could be quartered at the police sta
tion, but a committee of women who
went through the building some days
ago with the mayor picked out a room
that, a small outlay, could be fitted
out comfortably to meet the purposes
of the matron.
Kxprrlrarr la Other t'ltira.
Other cities that have not seen the
need of a police matrol have bad rude
awakenings when they have put- the
right kind of women in the position
as an experiment, mat is an tne
women of Rock Island ask. They
want a trial of a police matron nere.
They are confident they can convince
the city authorities and the public that
there is work for one here. So the
least the council can do is to grant
the petition presented for the appoint
ment. Surely the financial outlay is
not a consideration that can be allow
ed to interfere. It would not require
more than a month to prove that a
matron was a profitable investment.
The outlay would be $35. Appoint the
matron. The public wants to see such
an officer here.
William Annawalt, formerly of Rock
Island was killed by a train yesterday
at Grenola. Kans. Mr. Annawalt had
been employed for a number of years
as assistant superintendent of the
Rock Island Lumber company's yards
throughout the state of Kansas. He
was born and reared in this city being
a son of E. H. Annawalt. He was 41
years of age. He was single.

MAIL CARRIERS ARE NOT
OBLIGED TO CLIMB STAIRS
Postmaster Bryson at Davenport
ceives Ruling From the
Ninety Wilsons to Meet.
It was in 1838, the year of the erec
tion of Scott county, James and Nath
aniel Wilson came to LeClaire town
ship. Today their descendants are the
prominent residents of that same
township, wealthy, respected and
many. In all there are 90 Wilson who
now constitute the family and on
Christmas day all of these will assem
ble on the old James Wilson farm,
three miles north of Le Claire, where
a grand family reunion will be held
Postmaster Lon Bryson of Daven
port was officially advised today by
Fourth Assistant Postmaster General
Bristow that his mail carriers are not
obliged to climb the stairways in the
office buildings of the city for the de
livery of mail before the elevators in
the buildings are put into operation.
A- number of tenants in the down
town office buildings had lodged com
plaint because their mail was not
awaiting them at their offices upon
their arrival there each morning.
Some of these tenants have their of
fices on the fifth and sixth floors and
naturally when the elevator was not
in operation at the time of the first
delivery of mail, the carriers carried
that of the tenants upon the top floor
over to the second delivery.
The first morning mail for the down
down district leaves the postoffice at
7:15 o'clock. Many of the elevators
in the office buildings of the city are
not started until 8 o'clock.

Those who will persist in closing
their ears against the continual rec
ommendation of Dr. King's New Dis
covery for Consumption, will have a
long and bitter fight with their trou

termination. Read what T. R. Beall,
of Beall. Miss., has to say: "Last fall
my wife had every symptom of con
sumption. She took Dr. King's New
Discovery after everything else had
failed. Improvement came at once.
