Claiming that her niece had broken

band's affections. Mrs. Victoria Starks
yesterday sore out a warrant for the
arrest of her husband. Leslie, and his
foul-mate Viola, on a disorderly con
duct charge. Officer Sullivan nabbed
the couple at 705 Eleventh street last
night and this morning both of them
were given 12 days at hard labor. The
principals In the case are all colored.
Mrs. Starks told a pitiful story in
court. She alleged that her husband
v as infatuated with his comely niece
to such an extent that he had threat
ened to kill his wife, in order that the
lore affair might proceed uninter
rupted. tai.f; or pkhkiih.
"It all started several months ago
when we were called to Indianapolis
by the death of a relative," recited
Mra. Starks. "Viola begged to be tak
en back' with ns as far as Chicago so
that she could make a lady of herself.
At Chicago, the relative with whom
Viola was to hare made her home, had
left the city and the girl then begged
to be taken along to Rock Island.
"My husband fell In love with the
girl and immediately became cold to
ward me. Every night, when my hus

went to- meet him.'- She turned my
home into -a beer parlor. and every
night she and my husband sat up until
after midnight, drinking and carous
"Leslie, my husband, has not worked
for several weeks, but Viola has lived
a life of shame and has handed over
her. earnings to him. I have suspected
Leslie of infidelity and when I couldn't
stand it any longer, I decided to call
the pe-lice in on the affair."
The husband told an entirely differ
ent story and denied any itr-propriety
of conduct. He staunchly defended
the niece and turned against his wife.
After hearing the case, Magistrate
Smith addressed the girl: "I will give
yo a 12-day sentence at hard -labor.
You can wash windows and scrub
floors far a while. That will take the
beer and high life out of your system.
At the expiration of your sentence, if
you do not get out of town, I will vag"
you for six months."
A similar sentence was given to the
man. It will be remembered that
Starks and his niece were arrested
several monhs ago on complaint of
Mrs. Starks, who' claimed the lovers

away until 4 o'clock In'the morning.

That William Francis Burns, 'Dav
enport, was in the performance of his
duty when he was fatally injured at
the coal shutes in the Rock Island
yards, at Thirty-first street, Sunday
night, was the verdict of the coroner's
jury this morning. ' '
The inquest was conducted by
Coroner R. C. J. Meyer, Moline. at, the
undertaking parlors of Charles H.
Wheelan. 1620 Third avenue, at 8
o'clock this morning.
The testimony which was of the
greatest import was that of E. F.
Webo, 'engineer on the engine upon i
which the Davenport young man was-!
firing. He said: I
"I had "worked for the past eight
days with Burns. We were going into ;
the coal chutes to take on fuel and
then were going to tank up with water. !
I signalled to the man at the chutes
that 1 wanted six tons and he told me
to take chutes number three and four.
"The first thing I was aware of, as
I was backin? into the chutes was a
great commotion. 1 had thought that
Burns was standing on the tender as
is the custom when backing into the
chute buM'saw him fall to the ground.
I applied the emergency and s.ung
down from the cab. He was crawling
away from the engine and I he'.ped

. --- n o " j
we iock mm into the office and he
was later taken to the hospital. . I
don't exactly know how he happened
to be leaning out. of the window. I
thought that he was on the tender.
The engine was going at about two.
miles .an hour. The post which he
struck was about ten inches from the
train. There is not room enough foB
a man to stand between the post and
a passing train without beiu killed or
The switchman on the train, J. J.
Rowley, testified as to the location of
the train and the body when lie ar
rived. Joseph Burns, a brother of the
deceased, who has been a fireman for
the past, three years, told the jury
that he did not blame anyone for the
death of his bro her. The jury seem
ed content with the evidence of these
three men and a short while later
brought in the verdict.
