A portion of the Long View trolley
near the corner of Sixth avenue and

and tied up traffic for severs,! hours.
At the same time, the lives of pedes

A fate similar to that which he dealt
out to a fellow countryman some two
years ago, befell Cyriel Gotelere in the
beet fields of Michigan a short time
ago when a negro stabbed him to
death. (The negro was arrested and
is now awaiting trial on a charge of
murder. About two years ago, Gotel
ere engaged in a saloon brawl with a
man by the name cf Van Hecke and
as a result, the latter died in St. An
thony's hospital. A blow from Gotel-
ere's foot had caused a fractured skull.
Gotelere was traced to Michigan, ar
rested and brought back to Rock Is
land for trial. He was found guilty of
manslaughter and sentenced to prison.
After he was in Jcliet for 11 months,
he was paroled through the efforts of
Attorney V. E. Whiteside.
Two weeks after he was paroled, he
left the state and thereby violated the
terms of his release. Nothing was
heard of him till the news drifted to
the city that he had died in another
