Found Broken Rail. A. Hiegel, pro
prietor of the City bakery, on East
Third street, has placed the Rock Is
land road under obligation and who
may be a candidate for one of the Car
negie medals. Mr. Hiegel was dis
turbed about 11 o'clock Tuesday night
by the great and unusual racket that
the trains made in passing along the
dump in the rear of his home and place
of business. He was used to the nor
mal racket of the trains and it didn't
disturb him at all. But this evening
the racket was abnormal. There was
a terrific jolting of the cars as they
passed his house that convinced him
that something was wrong. Mr. Hiegel
states that he finally took a lantern
and climbed up onto the Rock
Island right of way, and there found
that a rail had broken and that a piece
a foot and a half long was out of place.
The cars had been jumping this aper
ture, and fortunately, the ends of the
rail had stood 'the racket so far, and
there had been no derailment. Mr.
Hiegel at once conveyed word to rail
road men that the track was in such
shape, with the result that a crew was
sent to fix the break, while traffic was
delayed for an hour or so during the
Wade Not Candidate. Hon. Martin
J. Wade of Iowa City has positively

the idol of the Democrats of Iowa and
also a great favorite with the students
of the state university.
Colliided With Train. Thursday
evening. E. G. Frazier, a young man

ter, drove from the north end of the
Rock Island bridge on this side of the
river and started towards LeClaire
street at the same time that a C, B. &
Q. passenger train was crossing that
street at its usual rate of speed. The
horse became frightened and unmaa
ageable and plunged against the side
of the train with disastrous results.
The horse-was thrown against a tele
phone pole and injured to some extent
before being -caught; The cutter and
harness were badly demolished but for
tunately Mr. Frazier escaped injury by
jumping from the cutter a second be
fore it crashed into the moving train.

Suggests -Christmas Presents O. A
Stephens, president of the. Moline Plow

letter, suggesting that the aldermen
who voted favorably upon the petition
of the Plow company for switch track
rights on Fourteenth street should be
"remembered" in the way of a substan
tial "Christmas present" from the Plow
company. The letter was unsigned, ex
cept by the brand "XXX" and hinted
so strongly of graft in the city coun
cil that Mr. Stephens at once made it
public. The chances are the letter is
simply in the nature of 'a hoax, and no
harm was Intended.
