Tomorrow is the day when those who
can afford -to will eat turkey. Others
less fortunate or with different tastes
will dine on goose, duck, chicken, or
plain spare ribs. Unfortunate indeed
will be those who are not able to have
some unusual article on the bill of fare,
for feasting is everywhere conceded to
be the most appropriate way to cele
Home gatherings will be the order
tomorrow. Schools, colleges and uni
versities will generally have a short
vacation, and many of the students will
be home tonight or tomorrow mern-
ing for the remainder of the week, and
all will gather round the groaning
board at home. Generally speaking, it
will be found, if a careful inventory of
the year is taken, that all will have
much to be thankful for.
In Rock Island, as usual, there will
be little business transacted. Stores
and factories will observe the day, as
will city and county offices. The post-
office will be open till 10 a. m. only,

State's Attorney Scott Brings Matter
Before Judge Gest, Who Post
When the circuit court convened this
afternoon State's Attorney Scott enter
ed a motion to nolle pros the indict
ments against Josephine Collett, who
is held under the same charges as
William Nagle in connection with the
death of Carl Brady at Island B June
1905. Action was postponed by
Judge Gest until Friday, when the mat
ter will be more fully considered. The
Collett woman has the same avenue of
escape from murder charges as Nagls
was freed upon, and there seems to be
no other upon which to hold her in
view of the turn that the prosecution
of Nagle has taken.

Next in importance to the feast, at
least from the viewpoint of many, will
be the football game between the Rock
Island and Bloomington high schools
at the Island City park. Bloomington
has one of the strong high school elev

measure up its prowess with teams
that have met the Bloomers this fall.
It will be the final contest of the sea

will begin at 3 o'clock.

Major E. C. Moderwell, formerly a
well known resident of Geneseo and a
member of the state legislature when
Rock Island and Henry counties were
in the same district, died Sunday night
at the Columbus state hospital, Colum
bus, Ohio. He had been at the hospital
for IS months suffering from a form
of insanity. During the civil war parti
cles of a gold pen were driven into
his body by a bullet. The particles af
terward worked up into his brain. Ma
jor Moderwell served in the 12th Ohio
cavalry. He was a member of the Illi
nois legislature luring his residence in
Geneseo, but for a number of years
he had been a resident of Chicago
where he practiced law. He was 68
years of age.
The remains of James Gaffey, who
died in Great Falls, Mont., a few days
ago after an operation performed for
appendicitis, arrived last evening ac
companied by a brother, John Gaffey,
and were taken to the home at 2213
Fifth avenue. Mr. Gaffey was 38 years
old and had lived in this city nearly all
his life until about 15 years ago, when
he went to St. Paul, Minn., where he
worked at the boiler making trade for
about 10 years. He then went to Great
Falls, Mont., and was employed there
up to the time of his death. Mr. Gaf
fey was a member of the Fraternal
Order of Eagles from which follow-in;;
pallbearers were chosen: D. C. Kel-
ley, D. R. McFarlane, Mack Glynn,
Thomas J. McMahon, Clem McQuaid,
and C. J. Meenan. The funeral 'was
held this afternoon from St. Joseph's
church, , Dean J. J. Quinn officiating.
Burial took place at Calvi.y cemetery.
William Nagle was found not guilty
by the jury at Cambridge yesterday af
ternoon of the crime of robbing Carl
Brady on Island B in the Mississippi
river on the night of June 9, 1905. The
verdict was reached in three hours, be
ing reported to Judge Graves at &:30
Nobody was more dumbfounded by
the finding than the attorneys for the
defense. When the jury was deliber
ating, H. A. Weld and Adair Pleasants
counsel for the defense, took the after
noon train for Rock Island, after first
leaving in the hands of the clerk of
the court a motion for a new trial, with
the instructions that it be filed as soon
as the verdict w-as rendered. But for
obvious reasons it was not necessary to
file the motion.
The charge of robbery is as effectu
ally killed as that of murder was in
habeas corpus proceedings before the
state supreme court, and an
other important step in the liberation
of a man whom the world believes and
whom the evidence almost unquestion
ably shows to have been guilty of one
of the most diabolical crimes ever com
mitted in Rock Island county, has been
Other Chnrem ltemnin.
Nagle was not released, and will not
be. There are still several indictments
pending against him, and they will be
taken up in order oi the severity of the
punishment, chances for conviction be
ing considered. The next trial will be
for burglary in the night time while
armed and inflicting a wound. As was
the case before the robbery charge was
brought to trial. State's Attorney Scott
is confident of conviction. The case
will be taken up at Cambridge before
Judge Graves Monday, Dec. 10.
Yesterday's verdict furnishes another
example of the peculiar results that
often attend trial by jury. Failure to
convict apparently resulted from a mis
understanding on the part of the jury
of the instructions. Judge Graves made
it plain that it would be illegal to re
turn a verdict of guilty if it were found
that Brady was dead at the time the
alleged crime was committed.
Differed vu AiilioRlluu.
From statements by jurors made af
ter the finding was reported it is gath
ered that there was a division of opin
ion as to the manner of applying the
instructions. The state's evidence had
tended to show that Brady was uncon
scious at the time it was alleged his
clothing was rifled, and he did not re
cover before his slayer completed his
bloody work. Some of the jurors held
that the victim was virtually dead the
moment he lapsel into unconsciousness.
and this view eventually prevailed and
had great weight in determining the
verdict. It seems, also, that the testi
mony of Josephine Collett, the state's
chief witness, was not given great

Much admiration is expressed of the
pair of Wisconsin deer that E. H. Guyer
shot in his recent hunting trip to
Wisconsin, in company with Phil Mit

on exhibition at H. Tremann's Sons'
butcher shop. They are adorned with
handsome antlers which Mr. Guyer will
preserve as mementoes of his success.
Three deer in all were killed by Mr.
Guyer, all on the run, and all fine
