" - ' a i FOflKfi "B?,| L - ISLAND PEOPLE MEET A RECEPTION. Jfwirty an ManrtrmJ Itjek. l»l»nd Attempt to S«1*«i the Woodmen ft* Jfslton Bet Aro Sent SI»n<te<t. •• • H*!Mi Back Ha4 it not been for * mere accident, the people of Fulton would be incoming the los* of the Head Office of the Woodmen of America, which „„, ~av£ bought so hardtokeepV , The town was the scene of one of tne ! most thoroughly excit!ng,tno8t intensely sensational scenes Tuesday morn- lag that has been known in this vicinity for many years. About 1 o'clock a special train of eight box cars, bearing iieatly an hundred of the leading citizens of Bock Island, headed by the mayor of that city, arrived in Fulton, and in the stilly hours of the night, the p ia traders began the work of =seizing the furniture and contents of the M, W. A. Head Office and loading them into the cars preparatory to removing them to their city. Plans Ware Well Laid. It will be remembered that the STANDARD of last Saturday announced the fact that the injunction, preventing the removal of the office, had been dismissed by the Appellate Court at Ottawa. The Bock Island people, evidently fearing that the case would be Appealed to the Supreme Court of the State, took this method of securing the offices before such action could be taken. Their plans were well laid. They were to make the trip at the dead of night, completely rifle the 'office and •tart back on their return trip before the good people of Fulton had awaken- sure were they of the success of their - undertakings, that the matter was given to the morning papers, so 'tis said, ' and a brass band—the best in the city —was engaged to meet the delegation on their return trip. A general pow- 'wow was to be held this morning and there was to be great"rejoicing in the land of the great Black Hawk and festive beer balls. The morning . papers of that place tell how they "did it" in glowing language and black head lines and the people of Fulton are laughing x in their sleeves over a good work well done. . Fulton Caught On. The scheme of the Rock Island peo pie was discovered by the merest acci- ' .fieaf. ;They had been working quietly for some time and had about half the goods loaded Into the pars. A young man and'his girl, who had been attend- ing a party.^happened -4>y -the-offices- a^d, noticing that things were, not as they should be, began investigations. It was the work of but a few moments - rto determine what-was up.—Bealizlng =- thelmmlneDfcdabgerptbe^voung-man "got a move on himself" and aroused the town. ", • " Turned In tb« Fire Alarm The first thing be did was to torn in the fire alarm and explain matters to everyone who put in an .appearance, Soon the news spread all over the city and plans were ma.de to frustrate the move, A crowd was stationed at the offices, and when the visitors returned ! .for. another load of goods, they were "1net at each' door by a Swift stream" of <?o?d water from the Fire Department hose. Boon pandemonium reigned supreme. , - , - NeWInJxmetion Secured. While the strife was going on some cool-headed man 'phoned to Attorney MeCalmont, of Morrison, and at 3 o'clock, that gentlemen arrived in the city, armed with an in junction, properly signed, and the people from' down the river were compelled to return the goods they had seized, and .await the action of the Supreme Court, for an appeal will be taken at once. : ' ', Incident* of the Scrap. Paring the scrap, one Eagan, said to be a newspaper reporter from" Bock Island, was discovered with braes knuckles on his fists. He was arrested and put in jail; be ia now at home, but is under $200 bodes to appear at Fulton for trial. While the hose was turned on the Intruders, the Mayor of Bock Inland attempted to cut it with & hatchet. Peputy Sheriff Joel Farley seeing the move,.pulled bis gun and told his fewuoy that if be cat that nose it would t» his last action.
