Cor. Twentieth St., and Fourth ave
How some people will suffer the annoyance and worry
which the present need of a little ready money brings to
them. They allow themselves to be bothered by collectors
and their neighbors and friends see they are in debt. Soon
the butcher, the grocer and other dealers see it, too, and
then they have the reputation of being "bad pay." Avoid
this when you are in a tight place by getting a private
loan from us on your furniture, piano, horses, wagons, etc.,
which you keep in your own possession. Repay something
each month and you'll soon be on your feet again. Write
or telephone, if you cannot call and we'll send our man to

Kenworthy & Kenworthy and City
Attorney Olscn today filed a cross bill
for injunction against the Central
Union Telephone company, asking that
the corporation be enjoined from fur
ther operation in the city of Rock Is
land. The effect of this will be, as was
stated by J. T. Kenworthy before the
court, that it removes the matter from
the police power of the city to the
realm of the court and-of justice. It
will in effect, also, prevent the removal
of the case to the United States court.
Arguments in" the case were begun
this afternoon, W. B. Mann opening for
the Central Union company. The
greater part of the morning was given
to the reading of counter affidavits
filed by the city. These were in con
trast to those offered by the company
to 'the effect that consent had always
been obtained for the setting of the
poles. There were others to the effect
that the service was poor and the rates
exhorbitant previous to the time of the
repeal of the ordinance.

Rock Island People Stirred by Report
from Los Angeles as Well as
The anxiety so manifest on the pari
of people in Rock Island for the safety
of relatives and friends in California
naturally continues. The late dispatch
es appearing in last night Argus, that
advices had been sent the war depart
ment to the effect that Los Angeles
had been stricken aroused even keen
er interest than had been before evinc
ed, owing to the fact that so many
Rock Island; people ave there either as
residents or visitors. Throughout the
evening people crowded about The Ar
gus bulletins to learn more of the sit
uation at Los Angeles as well as at
San Francisco, and when among the
evening bulletins was one stating that
while Los Angeles had experienced an
earthquake, that it occasioned more ex
citement and alarm than damage or in
jury it occasioned much relief.
With the appalling disaster at San
Francisco before them it was natural
that the people of Los Angeles should
be in a high state of nervous excite
ment and easily moved. Consequently
when the first tremor came they rush
ed into the streets and much confusion
prevailed. When the shock had passed
off, however, as the later dispatches
relate, they returned to their homes
and places of business.
While some reassuring advices have
been received in response to the many
telegrams sent out from Rock Island, to
relatives and friends in the far west,
there has been a continuation
all day today of the Interest in
the bulletins, while constant inquiries
have been made of The Argus by tele
phone as to the latest news from San
Francisco and Los Angeles. Today
news came that Mr. and Mrs. I. S.
White, child and nurse probably es
caped the earthquake.
Benjamin Pettit of Seattle, who is
visiting in Rock Island and who re
turns home Monday is anxious aboui

Seattle usually feels the shock of earth
quakes down the coast, there nevet
has been a severe one there. The late
disturbances wore of such an alarming
nature, however, that the people there
are apprehensive of subsequent

Wednesday and without so much as a
word about the San Francisco calamity
the newsboys themselves, who had

extras, refused to handle the Chicago
edition and it remained a dead weight
on the hands of the local dealers. The
Chicago evening papers that reach
Rock Island during the day are fakes
pure and simple. They contain no
more than the regular morning papers
in Chicago, except that it is gotten up
in different shape.
