ACCIDENT AT HIS HOME
Had Closed Gate, Horse
Taking Sudden Lunge
as He Reaches Seat.
Peter Roth, 7:5 years of age, re
turning at 7 o'clock last evening to
his home on Seventeenth street, Soum
Heights, after delivering a load of
berries to the city, fell from his wag
on when inside the gate of his prem
ises and ruptured tne veins of his
neck, death ensuing at 1 o'clock this
Air. Roth was driving a single wag
on. The gate leading to the premises
was closed when lie leached It. He
lighted, opened the gate, led the
horse through, closed the gate, and
then started to climb into the seat of
the wagon, when tin- horse made a
sudden lunge, throwing him to the
ground ,on which he alighted on his
CMptalM of ln in In eek.
The horse did not run away, and
Mr. Roth regained control of it and
drove it to the ban). No one knew of
the accident except himself until he
reported it to his son. Ferdinand Roth,
with whom he made his home, both
engaged in gardening. The old gen
tleman complained of pains in the neck
and head, but said they would soon
h ave him, as he had fallen only a cou
ple of feet, and could not have been
Injured in any way seriously.
The son advised him to lie down and
rest, which he did, but Ike appeared to
grow more restless as the evening ad
vanced, and the son suggested that he
bad better summon a physician, to
which the father objected, ridiculing
the idea. He told his son to go to beJ
and get his night s sleep and not wor
ry any further about him; that he
would be all right before morning.
Iiirs In I IMW ! II i Son.
Along towards midnight the son
was awakened by groans coming from
the room in which he bad left his father
lying. He hastened to the side of his
lather and found blood coming from
his nose. He lifted him in his arms
and tried to speak with hiiu. but he
was beyond human aid. and expired
before a doctor could reach him. He
was probably strangled by internal
hemorrhages. On examination of the
body this morning the nock was found
in a highly colored condition. Indica
ting that the veins and cords had been
broken by the fall.
Peter Roth was a native of Ger
many and had been a resident of Illi
nois for half a century. His wife died
suddenly last spring of heart failure.
Coroner I. .V. Kckhart held an inquest
over the body this morning, and the
jury. August P. Schmid. B. F. Knox. H.

"Then they had the credentials com

had district members of the creden

committee on credentials presented

the convention, declared that the mi

TRIES TO ATTACH
STEAMER ST. PAUL
Daniel Sherd, Colored, Says He Has
$3 Coming for Work Performed.
Daniel Sherd, employed as porter
at the Rock Island house .tried to at
tach the steamer St. Paul, of the Dia
mond Jo line, for $ ! which he claims
he has coming to him from the com
pany for services rendered. But he
has not got the money yet. He went
this morning to Justice Cleland and
asked that officer to attach the St.
Paul on her arrival here today., but
when Sherd was asked to furnish a
heavy bond for undertaking such a
proceeding, he was struck with awe.
Not to be defeated. Sherd had Con
stable Simon Goldberg take the bill
to the engineer on the St. Paul, which
arrived here this afternoon, for col
lection. The engineer, Thomas Pier
son, however, said that Sherd would
never see that $3, "because," said he,
"Sherd, in the first place, worked but
one day at $1 per day. and in the sec
ond place he took French leave at
Sherd was employed by Mr. Pierson
at St. Louis June 24. as a roustabout,
and, according to Pierson's story, he
did a poor day's work there, and upon
the boat's departure he kept himself
hid around the boat in order to shirk
work. When at C'larksville, Pierson
says. Sherd unceremoniously left the
boat without a parting tear.
According to Sherd s story, he work
ed on the boat June 24, "5 and 2f. On
the last date, he sas. he took sick and
was put ashore without getting his
money for the work he had done.
would select a ticket which should be
supported by a united democracy, the
cheers were redoubled. Bryan became
very denunciatory. He contended the
action of the Hopkins element in Illi
nois was like to that of "ordinary
train robbers" and argued at great
length in favor of the minority report.
Menzies. of Indiana, followed in op
position to Bryan. His speech was
from tiie outset, and he criticised Bry
an for coming into Illinois to take part
in this contest.
Quinn, of Illinois, who was chair
man of the Illinois convention, was th?
next speaker, and defended the state
convention, and declared himself a.
good democrat. "So good a demo
crat." he said, "that I never call a
man a train robber and a thief unless
I know the facts." He criticised Di van
for what he- termed his in te reference
in Illinois affairs.
Bryan concluded the discussion in a
second-speech in which he maintained
the position he had already taken, and
insisted i he action of the national com
mittce was (be approval of the claim
thai fraud had been committed in Illinois.

rules Objections to
DELAY OF ONE YEAR
Jury Will Now be Called
to Pass on Prop
AH objections to the legality of the
ordinance passed by the Rock Island
city council for the improvement of
Fourteenth avenue from Thirty-eighth
street east to the Moline line were
overruled in the decision rendered in
the county court this morning by
Judge E. E. Parmenter, before whom
arguments were heard for 10 days. He
has had the matter under advisement
since last week.
The chief contentious of the object
ors, who were represented by the
leading legal talent of the county,
were that the board of local improve
ment was without authority to origi
nate an improvement; that the de
mand for the same had to come from
the holders of the property abutting
on (he street to be improved, and by
petition presented to the board, and
that the assessment could not be ap
plied to property off the line of the
city Ha. tin- Power.
Judge Parmenter holds that the city
is empowered to go as far beyond the
line of the improvement as it is shown
the property is to be benefited thereby.
In providing for the paving of Four
teenth avenue the city has taken ad
vantage of a new enactment of the Il
linois legislature authorizing the levy
ins; of an assessment without a peti
tion from the owners of the property
benefited by the improvement, and the
opinion of Judge Parmenter is taken
as a signal victory for the municipali
ty, in that, in future, it will not he em
barrassed by those who. under (he old
order .could defeat an undertaking of
the character contemplated on Four
it will cost approximately 140,000
to pave Fourteenth avenue between
the points designated. Th" assess
ment roll has been prepared and the
commissioner finds that the greater
pan of the property for several blocks
north and south of the avenue will be
benefited by the paving of the thor
oughfare and accordingly has spread
the cost over a wide territory.
III Nut Pave Till -r.
A jury now will be impaneled to
pass on the benefits, lowering the as
sessment where, in its judgment, it is
too high, and vice versa. The city
lias given up hope of beginning the
improvement this season, in view of
the delay that has been caused through
the fight that has been waged against
the ordinance by the objectors, but it
will have all in readiness (o put it
