FACE AND BODY MUTILATED
Had Returned to Ascertain Whether
Charge Had Been Exploded.
"By the delayed explosion of a blast
at the Silvia mines near Carbon Cliff
late yesterday afternoon William A.
Hunter, a miner, was mangled so
terribly that he died at 3 o'clock this
morning at the Moline city hospital,
where he had been brought for sur
The accident occurred just after
the men had quit work for the day.
It is the custom, of the miners to
place their blasts and prepare their
fuses the last thing before quitting
for the day, touching them off at a
given signal and all retiring to places
of safety till after the explosions
Hunter and the other miners work
ing with him followed the usual cus
tom yesterday afternoon. After the
blasts had been exploded llunter de
cided to go back and see what sort
of a layout he would have to begin
today's work upon, and accompanied
by William Benson, another miner,
who held a light and kept at a safe
distance, he went into the place
where his charge had been laid. To
his surprise he found that there had
been no explosion there and suppos
ing 'that the fuse had been burned
out he went forward to investigate.
Just as he placed his hand upon the
top of the hole that had been drilled
the charge went off.
Thrown Into Pool of Water
The unfortunate man was thrown
backward into a pool of water, from
which his companions took him and
carried him to the surface for dead.
When it was ascertained that he was
still alive he was taken to his home
at Coaltown and Drs. A. II. Arp and
A. K. Beal, of Moline, were summoned.
It was then decided to take him to

The surgeons found their work of
dressing the injuries a frightful task.
His eyes were destroyed, the left one
being blown out of his head, and his
face was hacked in pieces from eon
tact with the flying fragments of
rock. It was found necessary to am
putate the left hand above the wrist,
and the thumb and forefinger of the
right hand were also taken off.
The injured man did not recover af

performed, and he died at the time

Coroner Eckhart went to Moline
this afternoon for the purpose of
holding an inquest over the remains.
BOARD TO AGAIN WRESTLE
WITH SMALLPOX BILLS
The December session of the coun
ty board was convened at the court
house at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
Among the various matters to come
up for consideration are the smallpox
bills contracted by the city and which
the council has refused to liquidate,
holding that the county alone is liable
for them. At this session the steward
of the county farm is to be appoint
ed and the positions of janitor, en
gineer and elevator boy at the county
building filled for the ensuing year.
No opposition to the reappointment of
John Swank as infirmary steward has
thus far appeared and it is not likely
there will be any changes in the In
cumbents in the county building posi

Last evening the organization of
the Tri-City Bowling league was per
fected at a meeting held at the Cen
tral alleys in this city. There are to
be six clubs in the league, two from
the Central alleys here, two from the
Brunswick alleys in Moline, and two
from the Allen alleys in Davenport.
It was settled that the schedule
shall include a series lasting 10 weeks,
10 games being played by each club.
The meetings will be held Monday ev

next Mondaj-, one in each city. The
details of the schedule were left with
A. D. Sperry, of this city, to arrange.
The A. B..C. rules will govern the con
tests arid the winning team will be
awarded a trophy.
The clubs that will enter have not
yet chosen their names and unless

by number in the beginning of the
series. By-laws were adopted last ev
ening. Each club is to appoint one
member of an executive committee
and that body is to hold a meeting in
this city next Friday evening for the
purpose of finally ratifying the sched
ule and attending to other details.

general principles upon which all fra
ternal insurance societies are based
and alluded to the Woodmen as head

and importance. Then he spoke of
the need that all fraternal societies
are beginning to be awakened to of
some sort of rate revision to insure

so pointed out that the Woodmen are
leading the van and opening a way
for others to follow.
