Steamer Wheeler Disabled by
Broken Shaft While Near
ing Rock Island Bridge.
RESCUED BY PEEBY EOAT AUGUSTA
Raft Goes to Pieces Horse and
Wagon Fall Off Draw
While to wins a string of logs
toward the draw of the Rock Island
bridge at 10 o'clock this morning the
mala shaft of the steamer R. J.
Wheeler broke, letting down one side
of the wheel and disabling the boat,
and for a while a collision with the
draw pier seemed imminent, in which
event the craft would undoubtedly
hare been wrecked.
The Wheeler's whistle sounded the
distress signal and the ferry Augusta
went hurriedly to the rescue, towing
the Wheeler to the Davenport shore
where the damage, which is con
fined to the shaft, will be repaired.
The Wheeler, which is owned bv Davis
Bros., Burlington, Iowa, was cap
tained by William Davis. Newton
Long was the pilot. The string of
logs struck the draw pier. The raft
was broken in two by the collision
and hundreds of logs were scattered.
They were later gathered up and
towed to the Rock Island shore below
Seventeenth street, where the other
half of the raft had been tied.
A singular accident happened while
the draw was being opened. The last
vehicle in the procession that was
driving off the south end of the bridge
was occupied by David Zefren, who was
bringing a load of potatoes from Dav
enport to Rock Island. In some un
explained manner the draw was
moved before he had cleared
the span, and the consequence
was the driver, horse and wagon were
pitched foremost onto a ledge that
projects about five feet from the south
shore. The wagon was demolished. It
was nearly an nour before the horse
could be lifted onto the road. The
guards procured a rope, tied it around
the animal, and with the assistance of
spectators, lifted it up.
Zefren was badly bruised.
Zefren claims he did have time to
clear the draw, but the guards insist
he had ample time, but did not hurry
when told to do so.

MR. M'ENIRY'S SIDE.
Judges in Senatorial Contest Hear
the Evidence of Rock Is!- .
SECRETARY'S MINUTES EJTEODUCED
Swisher Says Henry County Pre
vented Credentials Com
At .9:30 today hearing of the
McEniry-Andrews senatorial contest
in the county court was re
sumed and the forenoon given up to
the examination of witnesses for Mr.
McEniry. Charles Swisher was first
placed on the stand and testified on
the general proceedings of the con
vention and the action taken by the
credentials committte, of which he
wa3 a member. Ha insisted that
there were but four properly certified
proxies in the Rock Island delegation
and that the Henry county members
of the credentials committee had re
fused to take action, preventing a re
port being made.
Peter Schleuter, also a Rock Island
delegate and a member of the cre
dentials committee, was placed on
the stand, and at ence demonstrated
which side he was on. Several mo
tions upon which he was supposed to
have voted with his county's delega
tion he claimed not to have heard,
and while he admitted having been
with his delegation and having voted
for the nomination of M. J. MeEniry,
he denied having understood the reso
lution ho signed and which was put
to the Rock Island delegation the last
time entered the court room.
W. A. Jones, of the Moline Mail,
gave a very clear account of the en
tire proceedings of both divisions of
the convention and was not cross
questioned. Peter Olson and J. E.
Larkin, Rock Island delegates, who
went with proxies, identified the
proxies they had carried and testified
to having voted with their county's
delegation on all questions. Frank
Gustaf3on and H. L. Wheelan also
testified to having voted with ttie
Rock Island delegation, and the latter
examined and identified the minutes
of the meeting nominating Mr. Mc
Eniry, of which he was secretary, and
testified to the genuineness of the sig
natures on the list of credentials of
delegates purporting to have been ap
pointed at the Rock Island county
The proxies, minutes and list of
delegates were adrniited as evidence.
Kock island's Evidence All Id.
In the afternoon the examination of
witnesses was resumed, and R. C.
Beck, E J. Burns, Dan W. Gould. W.
C. Allen, Frank E. Samuels, Mike
Murrin. C. B. Marshall. M. O'Rielly
and F. L. Swisher were successively
placed on the stand by Mr.
McEuiry's attorneys, and gave
general testimonv on the facts of the
convention .and the certification of
proxies. After William McEniry had
been permitted to make a statement
as to the part he had taken be an
nounced that the evidence for his side
was all in.
DELEGATES GIVE TESTIMONY.
A. D. Majhew Says Appointment of Ryan
as Chairman Was Unauthorized.
When the legal objections raised by
Mr. McEniry's attorneys had been
disposed of yesterday afternoon, the
examination of witnesses was begun.
A. D. Mayhew, of Kewaaee, who was
a loember of the democratic senatorial
committee authorized to call the con
vention, was the first one placed on
the stand to testify in behalf of Rock
Island county. His testimony was to
the effect that A. B. Anderson, who
called the convention to order, had
not been authorized by the committee
to name Rvan as chairman, and that
he, Mavhew, had never sanctioned the
recommendation of Ryan as temporary
chairman. A rigid cross-examination
by Judge Wilson failed to change his
Dr. R. C. J. Meyer, of Moline, was
next called to the stand, and his testi
mony covered the entire proceeding"
of the conveniion, from the call to
order in the morning to the nomina
tion of M. J. McEniry by the Reck Isl
and delegation. He was closely cross
questioned by Judge Wilson with ref
erence to the manner in which pro
ceedings had been conducted, upon
which Rock Island county claimed to
have secured the convention
C. C. Coyne, of Port Byron, next
testified, repeating what Dr. Mejer
had said in a general account of the
doings of the convention. William
Filbert and C. W. Hink were also
cilled up and questioned by William
McEniry as to the manner in which
they had voted on the several propo
sitions before the convention.
Hearing All Delegates.
As it was plain the Rock Island
men were going to examine all the
delegates from this county as to the
manner in which they had voted, on
some of the propositions at least, and
thus establish the fact that Chairman
Ryan had been unfair in some of his
rulings. Judge Adams here stated
that to economize time he would re
quire that the delegates be examined
in a body. Here Mr. Andrews' attor
neys proposed to admit that all the
delegates from this county had voted
the same as those who had testified,
but Joe Dunham and Mr. Andrews ob
jected, and as it was nearly 6 o'clock,
court was adjournea till this morn
