HEAR THE CHARGES
John Morrison, One of Injured
Men, Testifies Against
FINK STILL IN HOSPITAL
Case Against Colored Man is Contin
ued State's Attorney Denies Set
tlement of S little Case.
The preliminary hearing of the case
agalnt Jesse Turner, the colored man
charged with assaulting John Morrison
and Jacob Fink, two river men, Aug.
12, with a deadly weapon, was com
menced this morning before Magistrate
Elliott. Morrison, whose wounds were
less reious than those of Fink, has
been reltased from the hospital, but It
will be another week before Fink will
be able to be out. Morrison testified
this morning, stating that Turner had
attempted to hold up his companion.
Fink, and that in the fight that ensued
Turner wiided a p.K'kct knife, injuring
both of the others. Turner had little
to say. merely reaffirming his former
statement that it was Fink and Morri
son who attempted the robbery. The
hearing was continued until Aug. 30, in
order that Fink may testify. There is
no charge against Morrison, and he
Srttlruirnt Is Impilblc.
Statements made in the Peoria pa
pers in connect ion with the accounts
of the preliminary hearing of II. A.
Suttle here, to the effect that a com
promise is to be effected ant the pros
ecu t ion of Suttl dropped, are denied
emphatically by State's Attorney J. K.
Scott. "Such a thing as a settlement
of a criminal case out of court would
be impossible, in the first place, and
no such thing would be considered in
the second." he ald. Mr. Scott ex
plains that perhaps the civil side of
the difficulty -between Suttle and thf
officers of the Cypress Gold & Copper
Mining company has been confuse1?
with the criminal action. Mr. Scoti
holds that the fact that Suttle has
1801-1503 -. 2nd. Ave. SCQt lilAJQ
made civil settlement is proof of the
guilt of the criminal charge. .
The preliminary hearing will be tak
en up again tomorrow morning before
Judge G. Albert Johnson. When the
adjournment was taken Saturday after
noon the case for the state had been
practically concluded, though the
state's attorney reserved the right to
continue his examination of witnesses
tomorrow. It is possible that H. L.
Dooley will be recalled. The hearing
will probably not be concluded for sev
eral days more.

very pleasant time and a most
successful encampment. The escort
for the Illinois department com

tention from the many thousands
of visitors gathered to witness
the grand, parade. Their uniforms and
white caps with gold trimmings were
unique in appearance and they receiv

they passed through the great crowds
"Many touching incidents occurred
during the great gathering," said Com
mander Buck, "but one which im
pressed me most, happened while a
small number of veterans gathered and
told stories of hardships in the great
rebellion. A veteran of many a hard
fought battle in speaking of the parade
which was about to take place, said
that he would march if it cost him his
life. The story telling continued." said
"Private" Buck, "but it was not long
before the veteran was noticed with
hl3 eyes shut, seemingly asleep. When
an endeavor to arouse him failed, little
attention was given him. It was not
long until his comrades became alarm

he had answered taps before the pa
