of the articles taken from the place
were found in his posession. Yellow
ended a 20-day sentence for vagrancy
at Muscatine" Friday, when Deputy
Sheriff Hull went down after him".
The train which leaves Muscatine at
9:10 in the evening was taken. What
occurred on the trip can be better
described by a traveling man, whose
story will be corroborated by every
one who witnessed it with probably
the exception of the deputy sheriff:
It was the most outrageous and cow
ardly piece of business I've heard of
in a Ion? time, mere is barmy any
question but what the prisoner is a
bard customer ana would njrut n tne
opportunity was presented, but hand
cuffed, as he was, he was powerless.
We had hardly left Muscatine before
the'olHcer, who in my opinion had a
good load of liquor on board, began
abusing the man, who was acting
uneasy and seemed desirous ol chang
ing his seat. One time the prisoner
called for help. At this he received
a couple 01 blows irom tne oiiicer s
lists wnicn brougbt tne blood spurt
ing from his nose. And again the
deputy sheriff pounded his man
without any provocation so lar as 1
could see. During the battle the
deputy sheriff missed his man and
struck the window instead, breaking
t and cutting 'his hand. The pas
sengers were becoming indignant.
The conductor, Mr. Glaspell, was
called upon and told the oiiicer that
he would nave to act more humane
or else the duty of ordering himself
and prisoner from the train would bo
fragged From the Train.
'It was a little after 10 o'clock
when we reached Uock Island where
a couple ol policemen boarded the
train ani offered to assist the deputy
sheriff from the car with his prison
er, lie didn't want help. Taking the
helpless man by the legs, the bailiff
diagged him from the seat and down
onto the platform, his bleeding head
bumping on tne car steps, ihe
prisoner was walked to the patrol
wagon. It is a wonder to me that
the deputy sheriff was not mobbed.
lie deserved it, even n his victim
is a criminal."
The trainmen and other passengers
tell the same story. Trainmaster
Scott saw Sheriff Hemenway abaut
the damage to the car, which he said
would be adjusted.

Mary Mortoa la a rredlcasaeat-Caase or
The excursion boat Mary Morton,
the erstwhile Diamond Jo packet, is
no longer permitted to sail the inland
seas. Her license was revoked Fri
day .evening. There have been
rumors for some time of infractions
on the part of the owners of the craft
of the laws governing and regulating
steamboat navigation. As a const
quencean investigation by Inspectors
George Knapp and Samuel Niiuick
was made and the license of the Mor
ton as an e&cusion steamer and that
of Frank McCaffrey, son of Capt.
Jack McCaffrey, as a pilot, have been
revoked. The charges are under
stood to be running shorthanded,
and it is understood that there are
other complaints against her by the
inspectors. It is positively stated by
numerous witnesses that in leaving
Davenport with the excursion of the
Kock island teiepnone operators,
Thursday night, after a delay of
about an hour and a half, the Morton
swung out into the stream without
either of the signal lights that the
law requires shall be hoisted for the
warning of other craft at night. An
effort was made to put up these lan
terns, but they blew out, and finally
tne boat pulled out with neither one
burning. This, of itself, would call
for the. revocation of the boat's
license, if there were no other charge.
Capt. McCaffrey Saturday sold the
Morton to the Douds t team boat com
pany in which be is a heavy stock
holder. The inspec'ors, on their recent
visit, also examined the City of Wi
nona, Capt. Streckfus' new boat, and
also the Linwood excursion boat.
Myrtle, and found them -all right.
It was reported yesterday that the
Schulenburg was also in peril of
having her license revoked. As far as
tho Morton is concerned she should
be a first class boat, although it is
a little strange that the Diamond Jo
line should have sold her if. sha was
altogether perfect, as she wai built
by the Company, and only, a few
years ago thoroughly overhauled and
is not so very much smaller than the
Sidney or Pittsburgh.
