THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1910.
IN STREET FIGHT
Conclusion Arrived at by Cor
oner's Jury in Investigat
ing Moline Death.
SLUGGED BY COMPANIONS
JLeft Lying Unconscious Between the
Kails and Is Hit by Street Car
Today at noon the coroner's jury,
whyeh has been hearing the evidence
of the companions of Cyriel Carlier,
who died Sunday morning at the Mo
line city hospital as the result of
wounds received Saturday night, re
turned a verdict that death was the
result of injuries caused by slugging
and kicking by unknown hands and
later being rolled by a street car while
lying in an unconscious state.
Carlier was out for a time with a
number of friends Saturday night.
While the party was returning home
Carlier was attacked and left lying in
the street car tracks between First
and Second streets on Third avenue in
Moline.- The testimony of the com
panions was heard, since Monday, and
today several were called to the stand
for the second time.
Details Arc Forgotten.
All of them had forgotten all they
knew of the assault, and so were un
able to enlighten the jury as to the
facts of the attack, although it is
thought that most of them know just
who the assailants were. The police
are at work on the mystery, but have
not succeeded in securing enough evi
dence to establish a case agahist any
of the companions.
last night by Officer Krebs after
neighbors had told the latter that
Joe was beating his wife. He was
arraigned before the police magis
trate this afternoon on charges of
assault and battery. The testimony
brought out the fact that Joe and
the woman, whose name is Anga Gar
leaseh, are not married. She had de
cided to leave Joe and go to Buffalo,
N. Y., to which Joe objected. Neigh
bors testified against the fellow and
he .was fined ,?100 and costs. He
could no tpay and was sentenced to
jail for 20 days. He was given a
warning as to what the law says
about men who live with women who
are not their wives. The two had
lived together for about two years.
O my Garden full of roses.
Red as passion and as sweet,
Falling not when summer closes,
Lasting on through cold and heat!
O my Garden, full of lilies,
White as peace, and very tall.
In your midst my heart so still is
I can hear the least leaf fall!
O may Garden, full of singing
From the birds that house therein.
Sweet notes down the sweet day ring
Till the nightingales begin!
O my Garden, where such shade is,
O myGarden, bright with sun,
O my loveliest of ladies,
Of all Gardens sweetest one!
