BY HENRY VERNUIS
Two 32-Calibre Bullets Enter
Stomach and He Cannot

As a result of a shooting affair in
j Leon Callaewaert's saloon in East Mo
line this afternoon, John O'Connor, of
B'.oomington. is in the city hospital
and will probably die of two bullet
wounds in his stomach. Henry Ver
mes, aged 21. who did the shooting, is
in jail awaiting an investigation.
O'Connor, with three others, all
! strangers, entered Callawaert's saloon
this afternoon shortly after 2 o'clock.
In a short time the three men began
to start trouble, and were ordered out
by the bartender. Yernuis. Instead of
becoming orderly, O'Connor picked up
a chair and thiew it at the bartender's
head. The chair shattered a mirror,
and was followed by a heavy cuspidor.
Yernuis then drew a 32-calibre revol
ver from behind the bar, at sight of
which the nun with O'Connor fled
from the room.
O'Connor stood still, and the two re
volver she's were directed at him wi
careful aim. Both took effect in the
stomach and abdomen, and Dr. Taylor
who has charge of the patient, says he
annot live. The injured man was re
moved to Moline on the interurban, and
was taken to the city hospital in the
OtVrrN o ltt-Mitumr.
Sheriff Heider and State's Attorney
II. A. Weld were summoned to the
scene by telephone. Yernuis was ar
rested without offering any resistance.
Tho state's attorney was called to take
a statement from the injured man.
The three companions were held as
witnesses, and were lodged in the Mo
line police station.
O'Connor is a man about "S years of
age, and nothing could be learned up to
press time as to his business or family.
