It was an unfortunate night that
Paul Rychaert, who works on the
Johnson farm, about a mile from Milan,
spent in Rock Island, and this morning
he was bound over to the grand jury
on a charge of larceny and also of an
assault with a deadly weapon. The of
fenses were separate and distinct, the
alleged theft of a bicycle having taken
place In front of the Gustafson &

place on Eighth street.
IHe a Knife.
Paul Schyvers is lying at his home
with a knife wound in his back, one m
his breast and several on his head, as
a result of the attack of Rychaert. He
was unable to appear at the hearing
before Magistrate Elliott this morning,
but there were enough witnesses to ef
fect the bind over.
Alfonse De Smither, the bartender
In the saloon at the corner of Eighth
street and Fifth avenue, told the story
of the beginning of the trouble. The
two men were playing pool in the sa
loon, and Paul Rychaert talked of get
ting a team and hiring Schyvers to do
teaming in the city. A controversy
arose and the man now under arrest
told the victim to come outside with
him. After the drinks were paid for,
the bartender told all to get out, as it
was close to midnight and he was go
ing to close the place.

The two left the saloon, and when
another went out he heard the cries of
the injured man about a block away,
and going down there he found Schy
vers badly cut up and saw R3'chaert
running away. A physician was call
ed, and it took about two and one-half
hours to stop the flow of blood and '
dress the wounds. After several hours
Rychaert was traced to the Vande!
Voorde boarding house on Fifth street
and Twelfth avenue. Vande Voorde
was surprised to learn that the man
was in the house, saying that he did
not know when he came. Captain Hem-
enway searched his prisoner before
leaving the place and found a knife
covered with blood and his shirt was
Rychaert's defense is that he was
struck first, but he admitted using the

The bicycle taken was the property
of C. B. Johnson. 921 Eleventh avenue.
It was standing in front of the Gustaf
son & Hayes store and both men were
inside. Rychaert says that when he
came out there were several wheels
along the curb and he took that one
for his, although his had a chain and
this was chainless. Johnson says that
when he came out there were no
wheels there. DcSmither, the bartend
er, said that when Rychaert came to
the saloon he insisted upon bringing
the bicycle inside, although they told
him they did not want it in there.
