Both Sidles of Main Street | Ry W. W. W. From the time of the organization of the Knox County Juvenile Court it was almost fifty years before a permanent juvenile home, known as the Mary Davis Home, was established on South Cherry street. Tt was early in April 1902 that a meeting was held at the courthouse for the purpose of organizing a juvenile court in Knox County. Among those present were Judge G. W. Thompson, State's Attorney A. J. Uoutclle, G. W. Gale, Judge P. S. Post, E. P. Williams, Mrs. W. C. Smith, Mrs. Belle Quinlan, Mr. Fletcher and Miss Bell Bcntlcy, Miss Emma C. Godwill, Miss Evelyn Strong and Miss Mary ITazzard. It was thought advisable first, to name two or more probation officers. Judge Thompson was opposed to sending children to the reform school except when necessary. Finally Judge Post upon rccommendatinn of members of the Free Kindergarten present named Mary Hazzard as one of the probation officers for Galesburg and said others would be named later. Form Medical Society During the same month Knox County physicians organized the Knox County Medical Society and named the following officers: president, Dr. Lewis Becker, Knoxville; vice president, Dr. G. A. Longbrake; secretary, Dr. G. S. Bower; treasurer, Dr. F. G. Hall; board of censors, Drs. H. C. Hopper, L. It. Ryan and R. C. Matheny. Other physicians at the organization meeting included Drs. J. F. Corbin, W. S. Williamson, C. B. Horrell, E. D. Wing, Ben Baird, W. M. Lottridge and L. S. Lambert, all of Galesburg; J. C. Creel, Abingdon; Dr. Giles, Walaga; Dr. J. B. Randlcson, East Galesburg, and W. I. Simpson, Knoxville. One particular advantage for the organization, it was stated, was in the relfef it would give the public from quacks and unscrupulous practitioners. An effort was being! made to organize all other doctors in the state through county societies. Stone Working Big Business Early in the present century the stone working industry was. quite a business in Galesburg. In March 1002, Alexander King and Company announced that it had purchased a large stone yard in Chicago and would move It here and have one of the largest stone yards in Illinois, particularly in western Illinois. The Alexander King Company was organized here a few years before and by the time of the above announcement had grown to 20 employes and expected to double this number when the newly purchased stock and equip ment arrived.
