At a meeting of the directors of
the Uock Island Savings bank and
Trustee Thomas, of the Kick Island
Industrial Home association, at 4::J0
yesterday afternoon, arrangements
were made by which the bond issue
of the association was placed with
the bank at 7 per cent. It was orig
inally contemplated to con line the
amount of the bonds to the amount
of the indebtedness on the propsrty,
but tho baDK j-s a precautionary
measure insisted that the building be
heated by steam, and accordingly the
amount was raised to $13.uv.l, and
the negotiations were closed on this
basis, Davis company agreeing to pat
in the steam heating apparatus at
the most reasonable figure and to ac

proposition in a few days looking to

the formalities were disposed of and

Steve O'Connor Attempt to llaog Himself

Since tho incarceration of Linke

O'Connor in the bull pen" by him'
self. His actions became more seri

by tearing a towel, with which to
hang himself. ' lis wouldn't work:
neither would his suspenders. Then
he removed his shirt, and manufac

strangulation, in which hcncarlj- suc

A Heartless Neighbor Said.
The coroner's inquest over the re
mains of Willie Kraul, of Davenport,
who was drowned in a pond there
Saturday afternoon, developed some
sensational features in reachiug the
verdict 0 . accidental drowning.
The principal witnesses were Mrs.
II. K. Nc-Abern aud Frank Lenox,
aged lit years, and Frank Daily, aged
14 years, both of the last named two
playing with little Willie Kraul when
the accident happened. The two
boys, according to the testimony,
were playing oa the raft, which was
a piece of sidewalk, when Willie
came to them aud wanted to get
aboard. The boys asked Willie if he
could swim and he stated that he
could a little. While the boys
were on the raft Willie jumped oil
once of his own accord and suc
ceeded in getting ashore. He then
got on the raft again and it was
pushed out into the center of the
pond. Daily and Lenox then jumped
off the raft and after swimming
about some they tried Vi get on the
raft, and yoonjj Lenox did, but Daily
in trying to get on tho raft tipped it
and the two boys en it went into the
water. Daily and Lenox swain
ashore and iu looking back observed
that Willie was straugling, and be
coming frightened ran away.
A Ill-artless Attitude.
The testimony of Mrs. Newborn
was in substance the same as the
boys", with tho exception that her
sister, fearing the boy wonld drowu,
called to W. K. Puis, assessor, who
lives eloso ly, to help save the lad.
and ho replied, Let him drown."
Mr. Newborn's sister, considerably
agitated, exclaimed, Oh, think of
tho poor broken heartod mother!"
and Mr. Pal replied, This wiil
teach them a lesson; let them keep
their children at home." Chief
Kesslcr aud Officer Goettscb, who
bad been telephoned for and were
hurrying to tho scene and were but
several rods away when they passed
Mr. Pdls, and heard him say, "Let
him drown! What do we give a
d n?"' The chief states that this
exclamation threw both him aud the
oflicer olt tho subject entirely, and
both of them thought when they got
to the pond that perhaps the report
of someone drowning was only a
fake. '-I iFdn't enre to jiimp ia the
water if mi one was in it," remarked
one of tlie odicers to a Democrat
reporter last evening, nnd then
have the people laugh at us after
ward, lint whca we found that a
child had actually drowned, wc
were tterly dumbfounded at the
remark that Puis had made."
An Open '8a Itch.
The lightness of the train alone
prcVonfc-d a damaging Decides t n
the C., U. & tj. at Alexis Sunday
night. Someone, presumably ma
liciously bent tramps, opened the
switch. Theevcning freight leaving
here at G:15 with Knpiaeer DeSolIcr
and Conductor McCarthy, was thrown
from the rail and completely over
turned, but fortunately without ma
terial dansage or injury to trainmen.
It was an unusually lightly made-up
train. coii.p jsed of about eight cars.
Had it been a train of average length,
th abrupt stop would have caused a
pile-up with destructive and proba
ln'v f.ul results.

As the improvement of grading nnd
building progresses. It impresses one
with the prediction so o'ten made
that this part of the city would be
built up more rapidly than any oth
er, if an opportunity was ever afford
ed, on account of the excellent loca
tion. . Dr. Aeay has his building well
under way, K."a.' Meek has his plans
all ready and will begin operations
in a to days, and several others are
preparing plans so as to commence
building this fall. This addition
certainly affords the best advantages
for a good investment.
More Profession il It ill

opportunity to see professional ball
in Rock I 'land again, although only
an exhibition game, will no doubt
attraet a larc number of people. A

be in a league that is not controlled

Kowo In Mnrrr Tury Krcnrd niua as a
The Chicago Inter Ocean contains
an interview with William C. Clark
on the success of safe blowing. He
is spoken of thus: One of the
most expert safe blowers in this
country or any other, for that mat
ter, is "William" C. Clark, now a resi
dent ff Chicago. Some foolish
friends of Mr. Clark have been claim
ing that he is the only man who
knows anything about blowing open
a safe, a statement which Mr. Clark
himself promptly refuted !a conver
sation with a reporter." And after
an entertaining talk on the subject,
to Clark is attributed the remark: I
have opened every known make of
safe, exoept oue. and will wager any
reasonable amount that there is no
Faf. made that I cannot open within
three hours, without injury to the
C.uod Word for Oar Charlie.
The Aledo Democrat takes partial
exception to thecxtrcme credit given
Clark by saying: "Now this ac
count may be of considerable won
derment to the citizens of Chicago
ami New York, but to Cock Island
might seem silly child's play. The
idea of ojH-ning any ie of the fifty
different combination safe locks by
force is entirely unnecessary. It
may be so where Charles Fiob'g, of
Uock Island, is not obtainable, lie
is a man who can open any pafe with
out injury to contents or safe. No
matter how complicated or of what
make, he - can, blindfolded, open
any of them. Some have tho jif t
of prophecy some aro conjur
ers aud soothsayers but Charles
Fiebig is a safe lock expert from iu
stinct. In his work he employs
mostly his highly trained touch. He
pays no attention to the noises ordi
narily observed by men in trying to
open safes for if he did he would
not succeed. Nor does ho do it by
guess. If he did this would require
several years perhaps to epen a safe.
It does not take a complicated safe
to have several millions of possible
combinations. It is a sixth sense
which lie cannot teach to others. He
is frequently called by telegrams
from his shop in Kock Island to Den
ver and points more distant."
