DISCHARGE OF QTJN ACCIDENTAL
Tragedy Occurs Yesterday at Cast
Mollne Dies at
Fred I'm nison, a "red 21, of Walker
Station, was sh;t accidentally yester
day by Frank llatiean. a companion,
while hunting, and died at 1 o'clock
this morning at the Moline City hos
pital from his injuries.
Willie Wiese was the third member
of the party that started out for a
hunt about '' o'clock 5 11 the morning'.
Kaeh carried a shot gun. Between 2
and '.) oVIock. while on the homeward
journey, the young men came across
rn libit tracks between ihe railroad
rails just beyond the (Irinnell school,
in East .Moline.
The rabbit was trailed to a clump
of brush,' Burnison anil Wiese in the
lead, with Katican about ten feet to
the rear of them. The rabbit was
frightened from it:', lair and Burnison
and Wiese each took a shot, bringing
down their game. In the excitement
Uatican's gun was discharged just
how, he is unable to explain. He says
be was carrying t li gun 011 his arm,
with one finger on the trigger, but he
does not remember pulling the trig
ger; at any rate, he claims he did not
raise his fun to shoot at the rabbit,
for he saw that it had been landed by
Falls Mori ally W01111 led.
ISttrnison fell prostrate to the
ground. His companions, almost craz
ed by the tragic happening-, tenderly
lifted him in their arms, and gnve an
alarm, which resulted in an immediate
call for the Moline ambulance. It was
so long in coming, however, that they
decided the quicker wav T iret t inir
the injured man to a place where he
could be properly cared for was to
board an intei urban with him. This
they di 1. soon reaching the hospital,
where Dr. A. 11. Arp was on hand to
minister to the wounded young; man.
The physician, on examination, found
that his wounds were necessarily fa
tal, and that there was nothing in his
power that could be done beyond
making his remaining hours as pain
less as possible. The charge entered
the right side, below the ribs, destroy
ing one kidney, wounding the other,
and passing through the spine.
No Oufl III Rlameri.
Coroner L. V. Eckhart conducted an
inquest, the jury returning a verdict;
of accidental death, and attaching no
blame to Buticnu. Burnison lived with J
his widowed mother, lie is survived
also by three brothers and one sister.

ning. Power will be turned into the huge
shops of the Rock Island mad at New
shops this week, probably Wednes
day. - The work on the power house
reached the long looked for climax
Saturday eveirng, when the last of
the heavy machines was set on its
Foundations. Now the chief work is
to make the connections and then the
first test of the pla'it will be made.
!t is officially announced that the
plant will be in operation between the
irst and the 15h of January.
Something like 1S7 machines have
icen set in the machine shop, and the
jeavy machinery for the blacksmith
hop has been going on in like pro
portion. The storehouse, too. has
Leen tinnsforined into something like
1 great granary with its huge bins
for the reception of nuts, and bolts,
ind every manner of Miiall supplies.
The work of tilling this three-story
.iriicture with the vast amount of
mpplies to be used by the bridges and
, mining department has been stead
ily in progress, and Chief Storekeeper
V. E. McLeoiI has fitted handsome
piarters in the building for the -ommodat
ion of some twenty-five

to be issued all the supplies used in
the maintenance of the Kock Island

The blacksmith shop will contain
iboul forty-tvto forges, beside the

'here. There are still some twenty
forges yet to install, but this is a
work of a few days only. Twenty-fie
carloads of machinery are yet to ar
rive ami be set in place, principally in
the machine shop, and this work will
on.sume upward of twenty-five days.
A force of :;;h to .00 men will be
inpli.yed at the shops from the start.
Vhen the shops open it is the under
standing that the road will impart
men in large numbers from the vari
ous points. There is repair work al-
eady on hand and in prospect sntti- j
ient to keep a force of ."mi busy, and
