WILD AUTO RIDES ON 25TH STREET Speed Fiends Tearing Down Thoroughfare 55 Miles an Hour at Night. CITIZENS IN COMPLAINT fur Serious Accident Unlets the Po lice Department Puts Stop to the Practice. The automobile speed fiends bare discovered fresh play ground. It's Tenty-ffth ftreet, on which they tTe a straightaway from Seventh to Eighteenth avenues. Numerous complaints have come to The Argus from people residing on street that It is dangerous to ven tre away from their own doorsteps .'ter LiRhtfall lett they be run down. o reckless and daring have drivers become, especially in the descent of ti-e hill between Ninth and Thirteenth r;nues. One citizen declares that he tabbed J'o tratfc for two hours. to 11 Cock, one L.'jjht last meek, and that during- that time 22 machines passed wn the Twenty-fifth street hill. 16 of which were making; on an average f 55 miles an hour. JsentyCftb Mreet Is the eastern terminus of Ninth avenue, the paving of hich has j-jst been completed, af fording another f ne thoroughfare for J-Iok. and already Jt is much in use "oth by horpo drawn and power ve ers on Twenty-fifth street it can do no less than warn the head of the police department to take some action to pre vent the Inevitable catastrophe. Why not post a policeman with or ders strictly to enforce the speed laws on Twenty-fifth street between Ninth and Thirteenth avenues a few nights the present week? Do not make public the nights he Is to be on guard. Keep aending him back an occasional night during the summer months. It is more than likely that the city exchequer would be enriched by a few hundred dollars and possibly some lives saved. Parades of Joyriders. "You have no Idea of the wild west performances that are pulled off on our street," said a Twenty-fifth street citlxen to The Argus representative. "It would seem, that all the speed fiends of the tri-clties have found that there in a new hill in Rock Island on which they may cut up. Going south they open up all the way and you can well Imagine the result. But it Is In the downhill dash that they make the terrific speed that would result In ter rible damage In the event of a colli sion .or breakdown. Twenty-fifth has been picked out by ail the Joyriders, apparently, for- late night coasting, keeping up a parade Into the early morning hours and disturbing the slumbers of citizens along that thor oughfare. It Is high time. It atrikes m. that the police authorities were affording protection to the people there and hea!'.ng off these wild drivers be fore there Is a tragedy."

Stevens, Md.', June 2 Out of the 435 members of the house of rep resentatives, one of the youngest mem ber and the oldest member, by a pecu liar coincidence, delivered addresses from the same stand at the historic Battle Ground cemetery on Memorial day. The oldest member was Genera Isaac R. Sherwood of Ohio, chairman of the pension committee of the bouse and author of the Sherwood age and Bervlce pension law, and the youngest member was Representative Clyde II. Tavenner of the Fourteenth. Illinois district. Tavenner gave great praise to the old general by his side, adding: "Although I am one of the two youngest members of the houFe of rep resentatives, there are three things on which I refuse to yield to the oldest member or to any other member, and those three things are love of country, love of the flag and respect for the brave men who were willing to sacri fice their homes, their fortunes, and their lives, if that should be necessary, that the republic might enduTe." Then he said: "The American nation is the greatest nation in the world. The American flag is the most beautiful flag lu the world. Had it not been for the Grand Army there could have been neither. No man, and especially a man who occupies a position in public life, should permit himself to become tied up In any way that might prevent him from attending Memorial day exer cises once a year to pay tribute to the men who made both the republic and the flag possible." General Sherwood said he hoped to live long enough to put throuph con gress a straight dol!ar-a-day pension bill. "I stand before you." said General Sherwood, "accused of the responsi bility of putting through congress the bill giving the old soldier the greatest benefits that any nation has ever giv en its soldiers since the days of Adanr and Eve. I plead guilty to the charge. If I am reelected and live two years more I believe I will be able to obtain the passage of a straight dollar-a-day pension bilL" REALTY CHANGES II Frank Crompton to Wellington White, east half, southwest quarter sec tion 30-17-2w. 12,400.

Some day this week when you are going past the Safety building leave your watch to be repaired by Cheer the Jeweler. No job is too hard for him. (Adv.) Moline. Ill, June 2. Editor Argus: The "officers, directors ind advisory board members of the Rock Island County Highway Improvement associa tion desire to publicly express satisfac tion over the interest manifested by the citizens of Rock Island, Moline and East Moline, in so cordially con tributing to the success of the good roads ball at the Moline Commercial club rooms Friday evening last. This public function has materially helped to increase the educational campaign fund of the association. As the officers of the association volunteer their services, this neucleus fund will be discreetly used in stimu .iting and promoting a more general interest in the economic necessity for a compre-iensive system of improve roads throughout Rock Island county. Hearty thanks are offered to the Mo line Commercial club for the splendia ball room service rendered and to the Tri-City Electric company . and J. Staack & Sons for the unique electric and other pleasing decorations. Hearty thanks are also offered to the publicity and other committee workers of Rock Island, Moline and East Moline. and especially to thoso who so generously devoted their time and energy to the thankless task of selling ball tickets to help along the od roads movement. The splendid co-operative spirit man ifested by this host of willing workers in a common cause cannot help but de velop into a mighty power for public ;ood in this community. It is the same pioneer spirit, in new form, that transformed the American wilderness into the greatest and most progressive nation in the world of na tions today. It is tais developing public spirit that will soon cause Rock "Island county to become recognized as the leading and most advanced county in the state of Illinois. The county cry "we will" has been heard in resounding tones of vibrant strength. It is calling for "a greater and better industrial county" and for "better roads now." As only a comparatively small num ber of good roads ball tickets have been turned in to the secretary's office in exchange for regular association membership cards, it is urgently re quested that all purchasers or ho)iN ers of such tickets will immediately send them in with names and ad dresses, so that a complete record of those interested in the good roads movement can be fully recorded. In addition to regular membership cards a printed copy of the articles of organization and by-laws of the as sociation will be sent in exchange. Every additional name on the mem bership roll not only encourages, but mightily increases the moral and prac tical influence of the association in prosecuting the public service it is en deavoring to accomplish. There are many interested in the good roads movement who did not for various reasons purchase ball tickets. To such and to all others an urgent ap peal Is made to send in applications for membership and thus aid this com mon county cause. E. W. WOODCOCK, Secretary. Attention, K.tf C. The next regular meeting of Allouez council No. C3S will be held on Tues day, June 2, 1914, at 8 p. m. Business of importance. (Adv.) 5 HORSES PERISH IN A FARM BLAZE Earl Flickinger Sustains Loss of $7,000 on Premises Near Port Byron. Fire of unknown origin this morn-, i ing at 1 o'clock caused a loss of $7,000 on the farm of Earl Flickinger, three miles east of Port Byron. ("J "j Six horses, valued at $1,000.. and four calves perished. The building con-, sumed included a barn 110x40, a corn, crib and granary. Two thousand bush-s els of corn were ruined, as well as farm machinery and three sets of har ness. The fire was discovered by Mr.: Flickinger. An alarm wus given and neighbors for several miles hurried to the scene and did what they could to stay the progress of the flames-,' which had gained such headway that it was only by heroic measures that; the Flickinger residence was spared. , Mr. Flickinger is at a loss to know' how the flames started. The buildings , were unoccupied except by live stock.' The destroyed property was insured : partially. j Rheumatism Relieved in a Few Hours. . N. B.
