22 ' 24 U.S. TOWNS NAMED LINCOLN One in Illinois Christened by Great Emancipator !'· Himself. UNCOLN, Til., Feb. 12. (;p-Twenty-four American cities and towcs bear the name of Lincoln, but only one--Lincoln, 111.,--received its name during the lifetime of the emancipator and had the honor of being christened--with ttie cutting of a watermelon--by Lincoln himself. "AH right boys, go ahead, but I think you're making a mistake; nothing named Lincoln, so far as I know, ever amounted to much." That was Lincoln's rejoinder to the proposal of three of his friends to give the name of Lincoln to this newly laid out town in central Illinois. The date was 1853 and Lincoln was an obscure rural lawyer. Bought Toxvn Site When what is now the Chicago and Alton was laid thru Illinois In 1852, Robert Latham, Virgil Hiclcox and John D. Gillette, all Illinois pioneers, purchased a section of land in the center of Logan county near the railroad right of way as,a prospective town site and ·with a view to making it the county seat..' As friends of Lincoln they had selected him as their legal adviser in the location of the proposed town. It was,in Mr. Lincoln's office in spring, on August 24, 1853, that the name for the proposed town was under discussion. Named for Abe Finally one of the proprietor said: "Let's name the town fo Abe and call it Lincoln." The other agreed. It was at this point tha Lincoln told his friends he tho they were making: a mistake. However, the name stuck, and five days later Lincoln was preaen at the sale of lots on the new town site. "At the noon hour," so relates a Lincoln chronicler, "he purcha;^' two watermelons at a vendor's booth and with a melon under each arm, called the proprietors of the new town to the proposed courthouse square and cut the two melons in twain, giving--ha!f to each proprietor and retaining 1 a half for himself, with the remark: 'We will now proceed to christen the new town.'" YOUTHFUL TRAGEDY iiobby Wallnce, i), above, Chicago, never %vill' part with this knife, which represents tho greatest tragedy in his life, thus far. \Vhlle playing mumb!y-peg with- his friend, Robert Brnn- des, Bobby threw the knife into a window box. The -Brandes youngster climbed to retrieve it and ,the box fell upon the lad, crushing him. Next day he died. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE -- """ »«~»^-w««..m n s .

UP)--Another 10 to ISc reduction in hog values for the second successive day put quotations back where they stood Monday, with the top at ?8. Bids at 57.90 for choice 160-180 Ib. light hogs were the best that the early market could produce, jn spite of anticipated broadening of shipper demand, due to higher- pork prices in the east. Commission men. insisted upon $8, however, and there was little trading in the opening rounds in this class. The full advance appeared in medium weights scaling 240 Ibs., which were sold early at $7.10, the lowest quotations for this weight for the week. The eleven primary markets had 113,300 holds today against 99,400 a week ago. , Better finish on the short fed steers that made up . the largest share of today's cattle supply added a stronger tone to the market than at any time this week. Sales started at fully steady prices, at $7.50 to $9.50 for steers averaging gooc grade, but activity was not brisk Poor demand for veal calves was reflected in lower bids at the outset, which indicated a declining price scale and a probable $10.50 top for the select strong weights. Unsatisfied 'with the cut in price, yesterday, lamb buyers demanded further reductions before they woulrl take hold today, and based their claim upon the bulge in supplies locally and at the eleven markets. Chicago again had 15,000 head against 9,400 last Tuesday, and the outside market received 60,500, compared to 46,100 a week ago. Bids started at $8.75 to $9.00 for the beat ight and medium heavy fat lambs on hand, but asking prices ranged from §9.00 to $9.25. beer cows, $3.75j?4.50: majority medium bulls S-W-1,25; select vealers IS: odd lota stockers 57.50 down.

WHEAT KING FOR DAY IN MARKET Corn Crawls Back on Throne as Russian Rumor Is Denied. CHICAGO, Feb. 12. OP)--Kin? corn, who lost his throne to knave wheat when baseless rumors spread that revolution had broken out in Russia, climbed back on his hobby horso today. The report lifted wheat to first place when more of it was sold on the market than any other grain. But as the rumor was officially de-- niecl, it dropped nway. Trading yesterday resumed the same mild pace it has traveled since federal agencies entered the market.

He has attracted nation-wide attention In recent months by his vigorous attack on the underworld Nearly every gangster who has been scheduled to appear before him has applied for a change of venue fearing his severity. Lawyers complain that he does not rule according to law and his decisions frequently are reversed by higher courts. All this doesn't deter Judge Lyle from continuing his crusade. Works Speedily. During his six years on the municipal bench Judge Lyle frequently has tried an average of SO cases a day. Chicago is painted as a sorry spectable by the judge who says: Business cannot prosper to its full degree if constant war must be waged with the criminal class or if to procure immunity from attack heavy tribute must be paid to racketeering- gangs with guns in their hands. Often the merchant has been compelled either to retire from business or move away from Chicago. "I am certain that organized crime, can be reduced to a minimum and gangsters be driven from Chicago. "If elected, I will drive out gangsters, break up criminal gangs and annihilate their leaders in this city." Sees Crime-Politics Connection. Often the judge has accompanied police on raids of which experiences he says: "I have seen machine guns, sawed-off shotguns, revolvers and ammunition, taken from the secret hading places of the criminal hang- outj .This experience, plus that gained in more than 50,000 cases in the criminal courts, has convinced me, beyond a doubt, that the reputed connection between crime, politics and public service is not a myth, nor mere suspicion of the public, but is a positive reality. When the Chicago crime commission's now famous list of 28 original "public enemies" was made public Lyle astounded Chicago by issuing vagrancy warrants for all of them. Many of the "vagrants" were fabulously wealthy. Eisht of these men are fugitives at the present time. The others either have been sentenced, are awaiting sentence, or are being deported. Lyle's supporters hail him as the man who will lead Chicago away from its present state to fairer days, a step which they believe to be necessary if the world's fair is to be a success in 1933. Theyare backing him as the antithesis o f . ., .,, "Thompsonism," which they blame Muscatine and Louisa counties," for conditions in Chicago today. I Hecklin said, "this measure offers Lyle places direct responsibility for ' J " " gangster activities on the shoulders of Mayor "Big Bill." What Thompson Men Say. Those on the other side of the BILL IS PAS! State Senate Votes to Permit Construction on Cedar River. DES MOINES, Feb. 12. (/p)_The senate today passed the Hicklin bill which, in effect, would permit the construction of a $10,000,000 hydroelectric dam in Muscatine county. The measure received 26 votes, just enough to permit its adoption! Sixteen senators opposed it. Senator H:ckl:n or Ixniisa county, sponsor of the proposal, said that the Federal construction company of Muscatine plans to divert water from the Ceflai river at Moscow into a lake two miles wide and eight miles long and from there construct a canal to the Mississinpi rived at Muscatine, where the company's power house would be located. Offers Relief. fence, who are not particularly impressed by the judge's claim to fame, says he is constantly "grandstanding," framing- sentences with an eye toward the newspaper publicity involved. Mayor Thompson, in campaign addresses, depicts Judge Lyle with a halter around his neck, the leash attached to a newspaper building. And, asserts the mayor, "Big Bill" wears no halter. To this Judge Lyle retorts, "Gangsters cannot live and carry on their criminal deeds if the mayor decrees it otherwise. The outcome of the primary, on Feb. 2-1, means Lyle or lawlessness!" Hicklin asserted that the firm hopes to attract industries to ea^tern Iowa by selling electric power at low rates.

He added that the water level of the Cedar and Iowa rivers would be decreased at flood time by one and one-half feet.

He pictured the lake as an excellent breeding place for game fish. Opposes Measure. Senator Irving H. Knudson of Hamilton county opposed the measure as detrimental to the state's conservation program. He urged that the natural beauty of rivers be maintained and said that only private interests would profit by the bill. An amendment by Senator O. P.
