The funeral of Edmund Murphy

Burns and Frank Blochlinger. Bur
ial -was In Calvary cemetery.
It developed at the inquest Satur
day night, which was held over the
remains at the Wheelan undertaking
rooms, that death was not caused di
rectly by injuries sustained hn Mr.
Murphy fell to the pavement after
attempting to board a street car in
Mollne Jan. 24. A postmortem ex
amination of the body was conducted
at o'clock Saturday by Ir. Joseph
DeSilva. who attended Mr. Murphy
during his confinement, and Irs B.
J. Lachner of Rock Island and A.
H. Arp of Mollne. Dr. DeSilva in
telling the coroner's Jury what he
knew of the case, stated that he had
been called on the afternoon of the
accident to the street car barn. A
cursory examination showed that the
left bip had been injured. He had
Xhe Injured man removed to St. An
thony's hospital. It was thought
then that the hip had been dislo

the postmortem examination that two
large abscesses had formed on the
kidneys and that the arteries leading
to the heart had hardened, causing
death. The injuries which were sus
tained by Mr. Murphy only hastened

The verdict of the jury was re
turned after the testimony of the
physician, the crew of the car.
Charles Widen and Henry Wynes.
and A. J. Schillinger of Moline and
Jerry Cunningham of South Rock Is
land had been heard. It was to the
effect that Edmund Murphy came to
his death from a complication of dis
eases aggravated by injuries sus
tained in an accidental fall while
trying to board a street car.
