THE .HOCK ISLAND xVRGUS, MONDAY, JULY 25, 1910.
NO ONE BLAMED
FOR AUTO MISHAP
Jury Which Investigated Death
of Alfred Sutherland Re
turns Open Verdict.
TAXI DRIVER EXONERATED
Victim Met His Death Unavoidably
Through Walking in Front of
E. H. Ellinghouse, 1608 Bridge
avenue, Davenport, driver of the taxi
cab which ran down and killed Al
fred Sutherland in this city Satur
day evening, was completely exoner
ated from any blame in the matter
by the coroner's jury which gave its
verdict this afternoon after having
heard the testimony of the eye wit
nesses to the accident. The accident
took place about 6 o'clock at which
time Mr. Sutherland was crossing
from the southeast corner of Fourth
avenue and Nineteenth street to the
northwest corner. The taxicab which
is the property of the Davenport
Taxicab company, was coming east
on Fourth avenue. In the machine
besides the driver were S. W. and
Charles Pierce of Davenport and C.
S. Estrada, a Florida cigar merchant,
who is staying at the Davenport ho
tel. The party had been to Pros
pect park in Moline and to the Watch
Tower and they were returning from
the latter place when the accident
Deputy Coroner Fred Entrikln of
Moline conducted the inquest in the
absence of Coroner J. F. Rose. The!
jury was convened Saturday even
ing but after examining a few wit
nesses it adjourned until this morn
ing and the inquest was continued.
How Accident Hapitened.
Dr. E. M. Sala saw the accident from
the window in his office in the Sala
fiats, and from his story told to the
coroner's jury this morning, it seems
that the accident was unavoidable.
The doctor said: "I saw the taxicab
coming up -the street from the west at
a rate not to exceed 10 miles an hour.
Out cf my east window I could see an
Elm street car golrg south, and I no-
ticcd that it stopped suddenly. I look-i
od uut of the south window again and;
saw a man lying just behind the rear
wheels of the taxi, which had also ,
Etopped. I ran down to the street at;
once and found That the man was still 1
breathing, though unconscious,
him carried to my office, whore
Dr. A. E. Williams examined him. We
were unable to he!p him, however, as
his chest was practically caved in and
the heart and lungs Lad probably been
punctured. He died within 10 minutes
after the accident. From what I could
see, I believe that the man became con-
ftiaoit v tt thrt r.rpsinprt of tho Street
car and that he stopped directly to
front of the taxi. He was crossing the ;
street diagonally from the library cor- j
xhgt and the taxi was going east on:
Fourth avenue, the street car hiding j
it from the victim's gaze. He stopped 1
in the street to let the car pass and
then walked directly in front of the
auto, which could not he- stopped or ;
turned in time to prevent the accident." .'
Tried to Save HIns-lf. j
Sutherland did his best to save htm- j
self from falling under the wheels of j
the heavy taxi. When ho found that ;
being struck war. unavoidable, ho '
reached for the front of the inaemae
and attempted to hnng on until it was
stopped. lie caught hold of the radi'i.
tor, but could not keep hi-s grip, and
went under. Tlv; two v.lucis on the
loft side of the machine passed over

Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Schmidt of
Davenport, while returning to their
home Saturday evening in their rig
after a visit on this side of the river,
were struck by an automobile which
hurled them from the rig and came
close to having serious results. For

the worst injuries were serious bruises
sustained by Mr. Schmidt. The col
lision took place about 9 o'clock on
the Rock Island arsenal just after the
rig had left the first bridge. Mr.
Schmidt turned out of the car tracks
after leaving the bridge in order to
let a street car pass and the auto
which must have been following the
car pretty closely turned out also and
crashed into the rear of the rig. Be
sides hurling the occupants to the
paving, the buggy was smashed be
yond repair. Regardless of the dam
age he had inflicted and of the pos
sibility that the victims might be ser

onward and his identity is unknown.

MOTHER ALMOST FRANTIC
Little One Was Safe In Care of Kind
hearted Woman Ice Cream
A woman's piercing screams fell
upon the ears of pedestrians who hap
pened to be in the vicinity of the Har
per house corner at midnight last night
and for a time it was thought that
murder was being done. The screams
came from in front of the Family the
atre where a young woman was seen
reeling around in apparent mental
agony. To her cries were added the
screams or another young woman a
minute later, but the second woman
did more than scream, she told In her
cries what the trouble was and the
result was that the mystery was soon
cleared up and the screaming and cry
ing stopped. A big crowd of both men
and women were drawn to the scene
by the cries and it was the topic of
conversation for an hour afterwards.

It seems that the two women are
sisters who have apartments in the
Family theatre building. One of them

lesterday evening the sisters went
visiting and the child was left In the
apartment to amuse itself as best it
could, tftfter becoming tired of play
ing on the floor it crawled to an open
window and was soon In danger of
falling to the pavement. It was also
lonely and unhappy, and its cries at
tracted the attention of a woman who
was vending ice cream cones from a
little stand across the street. The
woman took It upon herself to go over
to the apartments and take the child
across the street -where it would be
safe. 'The little one played around
under the eyes of its self-appointed
guardian and finally becoming tired
went to sleep. The vender could not
very well take it back before its
mother came home, so she remained at
her stand until after midnight with the
child in her arms. Finally the mother
and her sister returned and went to
their rooms. The child was not In
sight and they jumped at the conclu
sion that someone had stolen It. Both
rushed frantically Into the street and
the screams from both startled those

I.effnnn to Mother.
The woman who had charge of the
child sent word across the street by a
man that the child was safe and the
mother rushed across the street and
snatched the sleeping little one and
hugged it to her bosom in an ecstasy
of joy and relief. Gradually she calm
ed down and then she went back to
her room, after thanking the kind
hearted woman who h?d cared for the
little one. It is probable that she will
leave the child alone no more while
she goes away for a good time.
