One of the most pitiable .cases of
insanity that has come before the
commissioners in months was the case
of l'lith .Jthnson. who was brought
before them Saturday. The woman
was almost a raving maniac and it
took two oflicers to guard her while
the commissioners were taking the
necessary testimony to adjudge her
insane. It did not take long to do
this. One look at the poor creature
and a few moments listening to her
mad talk would convince the most
skeptical. She seemed to think that
she was endowed with supernatural
power and stated that she was in
league with the eternal one.
Saturday night at about 11:30
o'clock train No. 5. the Milwaukee
Southwest Limited, crashed into the
rear end of a freight train on the
main line in West Davenport, near the
Mueller saw mill, with damage
to both the passenger engine and to
the caboose and a number of freight
cars. No one was injured, with the
exception of a brnkeman on the
freight and a fireman on the passen
ger engine, who jumped and were
slightly bruised. The manner of the
accident is not known precise!-, it be
ing thought that a mistake in orders
being the cause. The passenger was
traveling at a moderate rate of speed
and tipon striking the freight sus
tained no damage save the smashing
of the electric headlight and the pilot.
The force of the collision, however,
was great enough to telescope the ca
boose and wreck the freight car im
mediately in front of it, which was
loaded with beer. The ca
boose caught fire from the stove
and was badly damaged by the flames

from the Central station and Hose

At Friday evening's meeting of the
Davenport Academy of Sciences the
subject of sending a collection of
mound builders' relics to the world's
fair at St. Louis was discussed and
the matter left in the hands of a com
mittee. The Davenport academy pos
sesses the finest collection of mound
builders relics in the world and it
would attract much attention if dis
played at the exposition.
Judge Itollinger has ruled, that a
contract signed by an employe of a
railroad which stipulates that in case
the employe claims damages of the
road the claim shall le filed with the
company in 30 days or it cannot be
collected, is void and cannot be held
as a bar to a subsequent claim for
damages. The decision was made on
a point of law which came up in the
cne of DeRoy Mumford vs. the C, R.
I. & P. Kailway company, and is held
to be one of the most important rul
ings ever made in the district court.
Attorney Charles T. Cooper has re

the criminal charge of forgery. Thi

A bill was introduced into the state
senate Saturday at Des Moines by
Senator Hughes and in the house by
Representative Healer for the state to
appropriate $30,000 on condition that
the city of Davenport furnish a like
sum for the purchase of the Camp
McCIellan tract in this city, the same
to be used as a state park, in ease
the property may be seeured for the
sum of $100,000." When informed of
what had been done at Des Moines.
Charles S. Heed, president of the
Camp McCIellan company, stated that
the representatives at Des Moines
must be crazy to even dream that the
Camp McCIellan property could be
purchased for $100,000. Mr. Reed
stated that the property had already
been mortgaged for $200,001), and said
that if the state of Iowa wanted the
property for $750,000 it could have it
at that figure, but not for a cent less.

Pupils of the grade school are giv
ing Supt. Smith emphatic indorsement
of his plan of establishing a savings
bank system in the school. So suc
cessful has been the inauguration of
the system that pressure is" being
brought to bear on Mr. Smith to ex
tend the savings bank to the high
school. It has been his idea to estab
lish his plan in the high school as the
pupils advanced from the grades, in
this manner merely encouraging the
continuance of habits of economy as
the pupils grow older. He has not yet
decided as to what course he will fol
