Murphy's shantyboat. On attempt
ing to open the door they found it
barricaded. By . using considerable
force they managed to force it open
a little and found a shovel used as
the barricading instrument. Drawing
it out of the way they entered and
found a woman, unknown to them,
lying dead on the couch, while on.
the table was an enipty bottle amt
near at hand an empty glass stand
ing on a chair. The identity of the
woman has not yet been ascertained,
but the circumstances all seem to
indicate suicide. . The woman was
seen alive at 3 o'clock by Murphy, or
Otto Assaman, as his name is sup
posed to be, who prepared a little
food for her. She came on the island
Friday afternoon having been direct
ed there by an ex-bartender named
Kinney. She seemed to be looking
for some one who lived on the. inl
and. When she reached the shanty
boat settlement she stopped at Mur
phy's boat and had since '..been there.
Neither Murphy nor ant- of the other
denizens of the region seem to know
who or what she is. According to one
of the parties interviewed during the
investigation, the woman is n former
inmate of Mother Mitchell's estab
lishment and was later at Ivorenzen's
saloon, but these parties could give
no clue to her name.
Adam Kcrz, a steamboat pilot, caus
ed a writ of attachment to be issued
against Capt. George Winans, owner
of the Saturn and Neptume, which ply
the Mississippi between Dubuque and
St. Paid. Kerz claims that Winans
has not paid him all of last year's
salary, which amounts to $505. In
his application for the writ, Kerz sets
forth that he acted as pilot on both
the boats for a period of 213 days.
and that he was to receive $5.00 a day.
Ho asks that the boats and furniture
be sold at auction to satisfy the claim.
The writ was placed in , the hands
of the Dubuque' county sheriff, who
will serve it. The progress of the
action will be closely watched be
cause the parties are well known to
river men. The Saturn and Neptune
are raft boats.
The "Associated Press reports of
Saturday announce the death of Col.
John 11. Givel, at South Bend; Ind.,
at the advanced age of 85 years. De
ceased was a veteran of the Mexican
war and formerly engaged in news
paper work in St. Louis and Daven
port. In this city he was connected
with the old Democrat, but lefe here
so long ago that but few Davenport
ers of today recollect him. His death
was due to a stroke of paralysis.
liev.'P. M. Weddcll, father of Kev.
J. W. Weddell, formerly of this city,
died at his home in Piqua, Ohio, last
week very suddenly. He was one of
the pioneer ministers of that vicinity
and his death was a great shock to
all who knew hiin. He entered the
ministry in 1H49 in Pennsylvania,
since which time he served many
large churches in the west and east.
The funeral was held Wednesday, at
which appropriate tributes were paid
by the ministers of the city.
The city dump boat is sunk in the
river at the foot of Harrison street
and some little difficulty may be ex
perienced in raising it. The wharf
barge ia also sunk alongside of the
bump boat. The two were towed up
from their winter quarters Saturday
by the Lone Star and their sinking
was occasioned' by the springing of
a leak. The boats 'were only recently
overhauled and were supposed to have
been in good condition.

Thursday evening a merry crowd
of girls from Augustana Business col
lege, gathered at the home of Miss
Julia Young, in South Moline, to
spend a social evening. It will be re
membered that last Monday a class
meeting was called for the purpose of
holding a St. Patrick's social. The
boys were opposed to this, and on the
following evening the girls held a
secret session to make arrangements
for one. Soon after the meeting was
called to order a noise was heard and
girls opened the door that opens in
to the cloak room, and saw about
six young men scrambling out off the
windows. When the girls investigat
ed some of them found their hats
gone and the rest hud no hat pins.
This left many young ladies to go
home bare headed. Finally they de
cided to have the social at the home
of Miss Young. The Young residence
was tastefully decorated in the class
colors, lavender and silver gray..
Games were played and many musical
numbers were rendered by members
of the jolly crowd, and refreshments
were served. A very pleasant evening
was spent and the girls are sure that
the boys were sorry Friday morning
when they heard them telling about
the good time they had for having
been so rude. The following ladies
were present: Agnes Twomey, Theo
