MAYOR HAS ANOTHER ATTACK
Still Worrying Because He Did Not
Have Chance to Peddle Out Attor
neyship as Patronage.
By reason of an ordinance reported
out of the ordinance committee at the
meeting of the city council last even
ing and passed, spitting on the side
walks will have to cease. Not only wiil
it have a sanitary effect, but notice is
now served upon the youug men of
Moline, who, since the ordinance was
passed In that city, have been coming
to Rock Island nights for the express
purpose of enjoying the privilege of ex
pectorating on the sidewalks. These
excursions will now have to stop. It
will cost each offender Jo per, in his
first case; $10 in the second, and so,
on up to $100, which is assessed under
the provisions of the "habitual spitter"
act. It is a good law and. one that
should be enforced, although of course
with some moderation until people are
fully posted as to its provisions.
The mayor had another of those at
tacks of Ludolphobia last night. It
was worse than he had experienced for
some time. The employment of Wil
liam Li. Ludolph as special counsel in
various cases of'fhe city has' been" a"
tear in the mayor's eye ever since it
was done. It was a position he expect
ed to peddle out as patronage and the
council beat him to it.
He read the council a communica
tion he had sent to Mr. Ludolph. It
was amusing, to say the least. It start
ed out on the false premise that Mr.
Ludolph was acting in the capacity of
"corporation counsel" and informed
the attorney that the manner in which
he was forcing himself upon the coun
cil was becoming very distasteful and
if he so continued the mayor would
be forced to enjoin him from such ac
tion. Mr. Ludolph was further inform
ed that he was "incompetent" to pass
upon legal matters of the city.
"Inasmuch as Mr. Ludolph was hired
to perform certain services and not as
a corporation counsel,as you assume.
I move that the communication he laid
upon the table," said Aid. Robbins.
The manner in which the council is be
ing bored by Mr. Ludolph's presence
when asked for legal service was indi-
