The short interests used this as a lever with which to re. new their recent pressure against high priced speculative shares, es pecially leathers, textiles and re lated issues. Rails made moderate improvement, however, and food issues also hardened despite an other cut in refined sugars. For eign exchange was firm, notfbly the London rate and call money opened at yesterday's' ruling quotation of 10 per cent. Liberty 3's bonds ral lied almost 1 per cent, but Victory notes were at new low records. Heaviness of oils, motors and in dependent steels at the opening of today s stock market cancelled a large part of the rally registered by the general list in yesterday's later dealings. Rail's and equipments also reacted with high priced spe cialties. The selling concentrated in Royal Dutch, Shell Trading, Mex ican Petrqleum, General Motors, Crucible Steel. American and Bald win Locomotives, American-Woolen, Hide and Leather preferred and Endicotr-Johnson. The reaction ex tended from 1 to 5 points within the first half hour. Tho closing was irregular.

Moline Cornell Toted to pay S13, 255 of the coat of the pavement of Fifteenth street oat of the public benefits fund. This council action ends an argument of nearly a year's standing and probably prevents litigation of equal length. In all probability the pavement will be started early this summer and fin ished this year. The total estimat ed cost of the project is 177,971. The new pavement will be of brick. It will begin at Eighth avenue, ran on Fifteenth street to Sixteenth avenue, on Fifteenth street place to Sixteenth street and on Sixteenth street to Twenty-fifth avenue. The total cost of pavement ordered last night at the meeting is i6i,n&. Moline aldermen at last night's meeting voted In favor of the city council becoming a group member of the Moline community council. This action was taken following an address to the council by V. P. Ran dall of Community Service, Inc., and acting secretary of the new Mo line organization. Mr. Randall de clared the community council is de signed to serve as a clearing house for all ideas and projects for mak ing Moline a better city in which to live. In two communications read to the council public dancing was branded as corruptive by two i-ehurches. These communications were sent in protest against con struction of a pavilion in Stephen's park for the holding of dances. Both communications were referred to the council park committee. This committee was given power to grant, or not to grant, the re quest of Note's band for permission to erect a stand in the park. It is unlikely that the band's petition will be granted because of the pro test and the added fact that many councilmen are opposed to charg ing admission to any event held in a public park.

Some time ago suit was filed in court by the Edwards River Power company to restrain the, Illinois Northern from entering their terri tory. The Northern Utility com pany is disregarding the action.

Canity' OSetels. SCHOOL BOARD IS WAITING ARRIVAL BUILDING PLANS County Treasurer C. A. Friese re ports a very large tax collection during the last week. Yesterday in particular was red letter day at the treasurer's office in the court house. - It is said that over $16,000 was received in checks on the four Aledo banks alone. This does not include tax from outlying districts nor taxes paid in national curren cy. It is claimed that the collec tion for yesterday would total al most (15,000. The largest collection of the pres- for "you can't play the great dram ent term was during the first week vii me world W1LUOUI me JSnglisu iL:r iu" uwrb were upeueu. people man you can play Hamlet without the prince of Denmark." called attention of the council to publication in booklet form of all city building ordinances.

Watkins was announced as the next entertainer, to appear Mrch Clifford Hughes and Dora Brice I ANOTHER SUIT OT" Decame rovpiveu in an argument. yesterday which turned into an as sault and battery case in Moline police court today. Mrs. Brice, the complainant, said she asked. Hughes if be had said "certain things about her." "He said he did," she continued, "and asked me 'what the bell I was going to do about it' Then he slapped me and nearly choked me." Hughes denied the assault It is said the quarrel staated with a dis cussion about Mrs. her ex-husband and Hughes. Mag CONDEMNATION IS STARTED BY CITY Moline council last evening au thorized mother condemnation suit for the purpose of obtaining ground to widen a street. A resolution was also passed directing the payment of J600 to A. J. Kunckei for a strip of ground on Fifteenth street, which was recently condemned. The citv Brice between will now seek to obtain possession or two small triangular tracts on On one day over $15,000 was paid into the county treasury. Mr. Friese is to be commended on the excel lent way in which he is promoting the work of collecting the taxes. Memorandum books were placed in banks throughout the county tor the benefit ot taxpayers in outlying townships, and a corps of workers has been hired in the office in the court house, which makes it possi ble to take care of the work with great speed. It is expected that the county office will establish a record for the collection of taxes this year. Although Mercer county had a start on several other coun ties of the state, the total collection will be greater in proportion. Action by the Aledo board ot edu cation on the new school still awaits the arrival of plans anil specifications from Architect Whit sett of Moline. . Due to having the office force depleted during the epidemic ot. influenza, the Moline: concern was 'unable to-complete the I plans, and the lecal board cannot j issue bonds or call, for bids on the new school until the specifications have arrived. It is 1 not : probable that work of razing the old build ing will be started before the first of May. .. : Rumors of action toward seeur-j ing a community - high school for ' Aledo aro current, ' but It is not thought that . such action will be taken. Local .business men seem of the opinion that Aledo is finan cially able to support her owu school, and that cnaolidation with outside districts might lead to strife. "Much solemn thought must be given the proposition before any action is taken." is the opinion of Dr. M. M. Marquis.- Dr. Marquis seemed of the opinion that much haste has been shown by several ot the outlying districts of the county in taking action and that an i opportunity should be given to view the success of the project before too many districts followed suit - At the meeting ot the boards ot supervisors of Mercer county this , morning, the - lawyers tor the North Henderson and Alexis con solidated school districts argued the petition which was filed some time ago with the county superintendent. , of schools by a numberof resi dents of the Alexis district, the prayer of which was a request to be placed in the North Henderson district. No action on the matter had been taken at noon today. It ia expect ed that the board ot three, consist ing of county judge, county clerk, and 'the county superintendent of schools will allow the petition to be granted. At the time of the election trouble arose between the opposing districts as to the amount of territory which each should maintain. ' . The Alexis voters included terri tory very close to North Hender son and it is said by the North Henderson residents and by those living' In the territory under ques tion, that the most feasible plan is to Ulow the territory to be includ ed in the North Henderson district Other matters of a routine rature were discussed by the supervisors daring their session. ALEDO OBITUARY The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth Spence, who died at her home yes terday morning, was held this aft ernoon at 2:30 o'clock. Because of quarantine restrictions, the fu neral was private and short serv ices were used. Dr. F. E. Shult ot the Methodist church officiated. Burial was in the Aledo cemetery.
