SU1 Brad atne Davanport, I
Mrs. Mary Sinnett, aged 35, was
found jdead in bed this morning
about 9 o'clock at her home between
Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets near
Second avenue, on what is known as
Cracker alley. She had been com
plaining for the past few days, and
said she had asthma, being confined
to her bed.
The woman's husband, Joseph Sin
nett, left her several - eor3 ago, going
out west, ana Das never provided for
her or the three little children. Mag

of age, respectively. The poor wo
man had struggled for the little ones,
but being unable to do so. the Ladies'
Aid society has at different times
supplied her wants.
A Sad Cane.
It is indeed a sad ease. The story
of little Maggie, a bright child, is
that she got up this morning about 7
o'clock to start the fire and prepare
for brettkfast, her mother being
asleep and snoring at the time.
After some moments had elapsed her
mother seemed very quiet, and was
lying in a peculiar position, and the
child becoming frightened, ran next
door and summoned Mrs. Nelson,
and sent for Dr. Sala, who pro
nounced the woman dead.
The police and Coroner Bawes
were notiucd. A jury was impan
nelod composed of Marion E. Swee
ney, foreman; H. C. Harris. C. A
Martin. John Larson, L. V. Eckbart
and Thomas Bollman, which, after
listening to the different witnesses
whose evidence was comparatively as
stated above, excepting that of Dr
Sala, who stated that he had been
treating the woman for two and a
half years as a pauper, and tbat she
iiaa consumption, returned the fol
lowing verdict: "That Mary Sinnett
came to her death from natural
causes, to-wit, pulmonary consump

Henrv Catton, father of the famous
billiardist, Billey Catton, and who
had spent the most of his deplorable
life in the jails or penitentiary, was
found dead in a doorway at the corner
of Second and Perry streets, Daven
port, yesterday. He was better known
as "Burke Lynch," a name which he
assumed when arrested for participa
tion in the tragic riot on the steamer
Dubuque about twenty years aro,
and for which he got 10 years in the
penitentiary. Burke Lynch was a
notorious upper river desperado in
those davs, and when Catton took
this name it was the one commenda
ble deed of his existence, in that he
saved the good name of his family
from scandal. The cause of his
death is supposed to be drunk
enness and exposure.
The remains were cared for by his
daughter, the funeral being held at
Davenport this afternoon.

from New York to Chicago 200 miles,

over 600 miles, bridging the rivers
and tunnelling the mountains and

of 4S hours. All the bridges
and crossings will be constructed of
iron and steel, and iron supported on
stofle piers and abutments, the road
passing over all north and south
lines. The motive power will be
