The first criminal case was called in
the district court yesterday afternoon.
It was that of the state vs. C. J. John
son. the bachelor carpenter, who is
indicted on four separte counts for
lewdness. He is being tried ou one
of these indictments in connection
with his unspeakable actions in the
vicinity of Ninth and Terry streets.
Johnson is better known as "Jack the
Hugger." His acts have both terror
ized and mortified girls aud women
who happened to be passfng Sixteenth
and Hock Island aud Ninth aud Perry
streets, as also the vicinity of Tenth
street aud Tremont avenue. He was
rounded up and Jailed. Attorney
Charles 11 Hubbcll appeared in his
defense, but when that attorney found
no retainer fee he withdrew from the
case altogether. Thereupon Johnson
swore that he would conduct Lis own
defense, and he is now doing so.

Inquest is Held.
An inquest was held last evening
over the remains of Juergen Johansen.
whose body was found yesterday in
the river at the lower end of the city,
as stated in The Argus. The evidence
showed it to have plainly been a case
of suicide. On Oct. 23. seven weeks
ago. Johanssen left his boarding place.
U3S Rockingham road, under such cir
cumstances that it was believed he in
tended to do away with liimself. He
had left his valuables behind him. and
despite a most careful search his
whereabouts could not be discovered.
A reward was offered, but this had no
effect in locating him. From the find
ing of the body in the slough, it is
plausible that the old man left his
boarding house and went directly to
the river, where he sought death.
Juergen Johanssen was born in Ger
many in 1S12 and came to this country
when 2" years of age. For many years
he was the superintendent of a vine
yard in California, and came from there

HAD TO HIDE IT
A mother wrote us recently
that she had to keep Scott's
Emulsion under lock and key
her children used to drink
it whenever her back was
turned. Strange that children
Iiourd like something that is
o good for them. It's usu
ally the other way. Scott's
Emulsion makes children
comfortable, makes them fat
and rosy-cheeked. Perhaps
that's -why they like it so
much they know it makes
them feel good.

Decision by Attorney General Respect
ing Powers of Railway and
Attorney General Hamlin has handed
down a decision of the utmost import
ance to all the cities of Illinois. It is
to the effect that the Illinois state rail
way commisison has jurisdiction over
stret railway and interurban lines as
well as steam passenger and freight
The question was raised by that of
grade crossings being constructed by
the interurban lines now being built all
over this state, and the matter was fin-!
ally staken to the attorney general i
It was contended by the street car
interests that the jurisdiction of the
railroad and warehouse commission ex
tended only to steam roads, hence it
could not regulate the matter of grade
crossings with them.
The decision is of great importance
and may have a bearing on the future
building and management of electric
railways in this state.
