Suit Resulting From Accidental Death
of Two Boys Is Heard in

Involvet $10,000, Two Claims Being
Combined Defense Won in the
This afternoon In ,the circuit court
the trial of the Linnberg case against
the city of Rock. Island was begun.
The ;ase is one of unusual interest,
and it has already been heard here,
Appealed to the appellate court, and
reversed and remanded for trial. There
ar two of the suits, but the city and
tbe attorneys for the plaintiff have
agreed to allow the decision in one to
be binding in the other.
Involve Doable Tragjedr.
The suits are for 15,000 each, for
the death of John Llnnberg's two little
sons, July 4, 1902. The two boys were
drowned Jn a pond on Thirty-eighth
street, the older boy losing his life In
trying to save. his brother. The plain
tiff alleges that the city was negligent
itt allowing the pond to exist. In the
first trial of the case here the court
instructed in favor of the city, holding
that the plaintiff could not ' recover
unless it was shown that the city's neg
ligence was the direct cause of death.
The boys were playing on a raft at.
the time of the tragedy. City Attorney
J.. F. Witter represents the city, and
C. E. Dietz and Searle & Marshall rep
resent the plaintiff.
