BRIGHTS DISEASE FATAL MALADY.
End Comes at Mldulght at Hl Fifth
Avenue Home railing of m Mao Whose
Genius Won llliu Fame and Wealth
A Rscldent of Rock Island Since
iUpin Moore succumbjd at 11 :3Q
o'clock last night to the effects of
Bright's disease, with which he had
b?en confined, at his home, 3520 Fifth
avenue, for months.
Mr. Moore's health had been poorly
lor liJ years, but it was not until din
ing the last year that it had become
such as to alarm his family, although
he had suffered neveral previous at
tacks that it was feared would result
Mr. Moore was born in Chester
countv. Pa., Oct. 27. 1831, his father's
name being Hibbard and his mother's
Jane (tSawthrop) Moore. His father
was of English and his mother of
Scotch descent. Gilpin Moore re.
mained in Pennsylvania at school un
til he was 1 1 years of ae, and then
came to Rock I-land, to which town
his father had come saveu years be
fore. His father was a blacksmith.
and after his arrival in Rock Island he
alternately attended school and
worked in his father's shop until
he was 18 years of age. Mr.
Moore, at that age. possessed more
than ordinary ineenanical ability, and
desiring to learn thoroughly the ma
chinist's trade, he apprenticed him
self for three years in a machine shop
in this citv. where he faithfully served
his time, and afterward was given en
tire charge of the shops as superin
tendent, tilling the position until
1861, leeominr noted in Hock Island
and vicinity as a workman and inven
tor of rare abilitj-.
During lbi Ms fcrvices were en
gaged by Deere & Co., of Moline, and
when the now immense agricultural
manufacturing c iicern was organized
as a stock company in 18ts, he be
cameastockholder therein and took tbe
position of superintendent of the iron
department, which heactively held un
til his health failed, and in which posi
tion his inventive genius largely devel
oped, he having taken out numerous
essential and important patents for
improvements "in agricultural imple
ments, not the least of which has re
sulted in the production of the splen
did "(iilpin,"' a sulky plow which has
carried the name not only all over
America, but also into foreign coun
tries DIs Imentlve fienlun.
Mr. Moore's work in his father's
shop, his chances at the practical
working of machinery, his schooling
in mechanism, drafting and design
ing, tended to develop extraordinary
inventive faculty and genius, not only
in plowa and cultivators, but also in
engines of all descriptions.
Though Ho closaly identilijl with
one of Moline's largest industries,
Mr. Moore had always been a resi
dent of Rock Island since coming hera
in 1M.5. and his death removes one of
Rock Island's most substantial and
respected citizens. Though he did
not take an active part in affairs po
litical or social, he had a wide ac
quaintance and enjoyed staunch
friendships, and his demise will cause
Mr. Moore was married March 3,
1853, to Miss Ludica Criswell, whose
death occurred March 17. lH'Jo. Mr.
Moore afterward wedded Mrs. Jennie

James Shannon, a local 125-pound-er,
made his public debut as a bidder
for pugilistic fame at Turner hall last
night, meeting Henry Biermann, one
of Moline's shining Tights of the roped
artna. in a boxing exhibition that
was tlated to last 10 rounds. But
Shannon, in bis anxiety to give his
adversary the quick finish, persisted
in fouling and was disqualified in the
sixth round, the decision going to

to the affair as possible, 'the crowd

But Sliatition proved an agreeable
surprise to his admirers, as well as to
the Moline lighter ami the ciowd o

trary to expectations. Shannon was
cool as a cucuuiIkt throughout the
contest, and there wasevery indication
he would score a clean victory
h.id he obeyed the adinon
itions of the referee to re

action tor their monev. bile neithe
man displayed much science. Bier
mann was probab y better equipped
in this respect than Shannon, but the
latter bad the best ot it in coolheaded
ness and strength to deliver effective
punches. He plaved his dukes with
remarkable rapidity on Biermann's
slats. Biermann responded with
((iiial alacrity, but he did not land

In the second round Shannon drew
first blood, a stream of "the crimson

a vicious poke. Biermann was dizzy
when tbe gong sounded.
There wtre cries of foul in the third
round from Biermann's corner, llsf-
eree llorton was obliged to go be

was sent to the ropes several times.
and once protested to the referee that
Shannon was hitting him in tbe
breakaway, ihe referee during the in
