TFEE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTEW.
Monday, Mat 27. 1889.
In the warehouse of W. A. Pilgrim.on
First avenue, is as pretty a water craft as
the sea f arer could wish to feast his eyes
upon. It is a sail boat, the property of
Messrs. S. F. Lynde, F. J. Kinney and
Will Dart. It was built by ex-Mayor
Thomas Mnrdock and his son, the late
St. Elmo Murdock, is designed not only
for beauty in model, but for fast sailing
purposes and the gentlemen named have
reason to be proud of their new posses
sion. Mr.' A. O. Dart, who ' is as much
at Lome on the water as on land, and is
extremely partial to such modes of recre
ation, was first attracted by the boat and
he negotiated for it for its present own
ers. The craft is what is known as a
"Barragat Sneak," has dimensions of
sixteen and one-half feet by five and one
half beam, an iron center board, with
water tight compartment in the stern and
is bulkbeaded forward. It has been en
tirely refitted by Matt Frederickson, a
sailor and ship carpenter, handsomely
painted and provided with canvas deck.
It carries an immense tug sail and is
capable of making ten mill's an hour up
stream. The boys expect to beat any
thing in these waters with it. It will be
launched this evening.
The two Hawkeye clubs of the Inter
state league Davenport and Burlington
played their first game on the Daven
port grounds Saturday afternoon before
a large audience, many of whom were
from this city. The batteries were
Rbines and Harrington, from Davenport,
and Ilagerman and Weckbecker for Bur
lington. The former Davenport players,
Reising, Moyer, Phillips and Manlove.all
received ovations, while Manager Lucas
was the subject of many hearty greet
ings. Davenport won the game by a
score of 7 to 4. An unpleasant incident
occurred in a protracted argument be
tween the captain of the Davenports and
the umpire, over a decision, and while it
kept the audience in suspense about ten
minutes, it served to disgust a good mauy
who may go to a ball park to see science
In play and not in argument. Yesterday
the Josephine brought an excursion of
400 people from Burlington to see the
second game, but it was necessary.owing
to the wet weather, to postpone it. To
day the same clubs are playing again and
tomorrow Sunday's game will be played.

A pitiable subject presented himself at
tbe police station yc sterday afternoon.
He gave his name as Joseph Burton, Jr.,
a business man of Chicago and to Desk
Sergeant Sexton he unravelled a pathetic
tale. It was that he had been on a pro
tracted spree, had left Chicago be knew
not when, nor did he know how he got to
Rock Island. At any rate he had come
to his senses and amid his remorse and
desperation penniless, as he was, among
strangers bad contemplated suicide and
bad ridden across the river two or three
times with that end in view, and finally
feeling that he should place himself
under restrictions lest he do away with
himself, he applied to be locked up. His
wish was complied with and afterward
he asked for a rope to hang himself with
and this being denied, tried to butt his
brains out on tbe iron grating of bis cell.
This morning he was more rational and
gave the name and address of his father.

Saturday afternoon a man named
Peter A. Anderson, of Galesburg, rented
a borse and cart at Tindall's barn and
took it to Benton's barn in Davenport,
where he sold tbe outfit for $00. Marshal
Miller learned the facts and went to Dav
en port and secured Anderson, he having
been arrested by the Davenport police in
tbe meantime, and brought him to Rock
Island. Magistrate Wivill this morning
held him in bonds or $500 for horse
stealing, and $200 for the larceny of the
cart and harness. Anderson went to
Officer nettcr Saturday night pulled
tbe house of ill repute in tbe old palace
row on Second avenue, and arrested a
woman who gave her name a Lew Bovn
ton for conducting It. Deputy Marshal
Long took in Ed Henderson for being an
inmate. Magistrate Wivill fined the pro
prietress $10 and costs and Henderson $5
and costs, which was paid.
One of those frequent neighborhood
disturbances promises a ventilation in
Magistrate Wivill's court this evening.
Robert Cox has been arrested for forcibly
ejecting Miss Bridget McGee from bis
premises. The parties live on Twenty
first street and tbe trouble is said to grow
from a neighborhood unpleasantness
of long standing.
Officer Fletcher arrested Fred Meilo in
the lower end of town last night for
abusing his stepson. Magistrate Wivill
imposed a fine of $5 and costs today.
C. P. McLain and Osborne Meechara,
of Molina, were arrested yesterday for
reckless driving on Moline avenue. A
line of $3 and costs was imposed.
Owen Schneider and John Kinney, the
tramps who stole the shoes from Scbnei
dor's Elm street store Saturday, were held
in bonds of ( 100 each this morning.

Chicago, May 27. Dr. Cronin was buried
yekterday. The body bad teeu lying in state
at tbe First Cavalry armory since Saturday,
and tbe catafalque was surrounded with
floral tributes to tbe deceased. Early yester
day moroiug the friends of the deceased
formed in line and were admitted to take a

was performed and the body having len re
turned to tbe hearse tbe jropesion moved
through tbe principal streets to tbe Union
station, where cars were taken and the start
made for tbe cemetery. Arriving there the
body was laid in tbe receiving vault without

! The streets through which tbe procession
passed were lined with sight-seers, who qui
etly and reverently watched the long line,
numbering about 3,000 men, pass by to tbe
solemn strains of dead marches played by
half a dozen brass bands and the raulttVd rat
tle of the snare drums of the four or five

' Daniel Cougblin is in a tight place. He is
the policeman referred to in these dipatcbea
Saturday as having hired the rig in which
Dr. Cronin was taken to bis death. Satur
day night Cougblin was placed under arrest
as a " witness" whom it was safe to hold.
This was done after he had been examined by
Ubtof of folios Hubbard and Mayor Cregier.
the latter of whom, in view of the gravity of
the case, is taking a personal part in the inves
tigation. Officer Whelan, Coughlin's part
ner, basal8o been relieved from duty,
av Coughlin Tells His Story.
: To both tbe chief of police and tbe mayor
Cougblin told practically tbe same story,
which was taken down by a stenographer. It
Is in brief that a few days before the mur
der was committed a man called on him, rep
resenting himself as a friend of Coughlin's
brother, a livery stable keeper at Hancock,
Mich. He said bis name was Thomas Smith.
and that Coughlin's brother had told him tc
hunt up Dan. Cougblin played the host to
tbe best of bis ability, and on the day of tbe
murder Smith said he wanted to takea buggy
ride, but feared tbe liveryman would not trust
a stranger with a horse. Cougblin said he
would make that all right, and obtained tbe
rig for Smith, as heretofore described.
When tbe disappearance of Cronin was
made known, Coughlin admitted that be bad
asked the livery stable man Dinan to say
nothing about the rig, as being an enemy ol
Cronin he feared suspicion might point his
way. Capt Schaack beard of the rig a short
time after tbe disappearance of Cronin, and
hunted it up, and learning that Coughlin had
a band in obtaining it, sent him to find Smith.
Coughlin said that be found Smith,
but that the latter told a straight story, and
he so reported to Schaack, but after being
told to find Smith again, be discovered that
he bad flitted gone to New Mexico. Smith
had told Coughlin that he bad an aunt on
Halstead street, but where is not known, nor
to what part of New Mexico Smith has gone.
Later A United Press reporter came up
with a "Smith" at tbe Socialist meeting at
Waverly ball yesterday afternoon who seems
to be the Smith wanted, and ilhe is Coughlin
is in a tight ilace. L C. Crowley told the
reporter that he knew Smith, but would not
point bim out, although he said he was in the
city. Smith was discovered, however, and
admitted bis name, bis acquaintance with
Coughlin, bis residence at times in Hancock,
Mich., but denied that he bad seen Cougblin
before last Tuesday, or that Coughlin bad
helped him obtain a horse and buggy. He
knew no other Tom Smith in Hancock,
nor had be any relative. in this city. Smith
is employed by a real estate dealer here, and
his friends say that Coughlin, finding it nec
essary to invent a name for the unknown
buggy driver, chanced to think of bis newly
found friend, and afterwards, in order to
carry out the story, gave the mysterious in
dividual not only the name, but tbe former
home address of his friend.
Clues, but Very Indefinite.
- Capt Schaack says be took the white horse
and the buggy 8mith used to the residence
of the Conklin's, but Mrs. Conklin could not
identify them. A reporter took the same
rig to the same place Saturday evening and
Mrs. Conklin absolutely identified them and
said she did not fail to do so when Schaack
took tbem there, but said she could not be
A discovery which would be valuable if
the person involved could be found is that
the furniture found In the house
where the murder was committed
was purchased from ReveU, tbe
house furnishing man, about Feb, 20. It
was first taken to a room right opposite the
Opera house block on Clark street, where Cro
nin had an office, the person who brought the
furniture renting tha whole floor to get that
particular room. Later, it seems, it was taken
ta the murder cottage, where it was found.
Tbe salesman who sold the furniture says he
believes he could identify the purchaser if he
could see him again. But he is not known,
nor dots the description be gives fit any one
well enough for action; it would do for hun
dreds of men. None of this furniture was
ever used apparently.
Most Startling Kumar Yet.
The air is full of rumors and charges, but
probably tbe most startling is to the effect
that Cronin's death was decreed by tbe Clan-na-Gael
on account of LeCaron's statement
to the Parnell commission that there were
more spies in America; and not only that but
also the death of W. J. Hynes, Father Olea
son, Capt L P. O'Connor, John Devoy, and
two others. The discovery of Cronin's mur
der has given the others a respite.
Woodruff's Employer Arrested.
The man King, described by tbe prisoner
Woodruff as the person who hired him to
steal a horse out of Dean's bam the night of
Dr. Cronin's disappearance, was captured at
3 o'clock yesterday morning in a house of
Of World-Wide Interest.
This murder is one of interest in every part
of the world, where there are Irishmen. The
fact that it is charred that Cronin was ura-
mpyedf because he was fighting a faction of
IS ihKatiouttiits has set talk'going every
where. Le Caron, the detective who testified
at tbe Parnell trial, has been In
tel viewed, and is very talkative.
Tb London Daily News says: "Le
Caron confidentially uttered the namee of
several men whom be believed were the mar
del ers of Cronin, and one especially as being
to prime mover in tbe tragedy, bnt all we
art at liberty to state is that the persons thus
referred to have not as yet figured in the
pu blished reports of the crime."
Irish opinion is divided. Some prominent
men are confident Cronin was killed by a
ba id of conspirators connected with some of
thc societies, while others scout the idea and
say it was impossible, and still others charge
it n the British government
SUICIDE OF A CLERGYMAN.
A Young Episcopal Curate Blows Out Hil
Brains Over a lxv Affair.
1 Baltimore, May 27. Rev. Henry Green
field Schorr, assistant rector of St Paul's
Protestant Episcopal church, corner of
Charles and Saratoga streets, committed sui
cidd yesterday morning by blowing bit,
bnJns out with a pistol. Mr. Schorr was 29
yet rs of age, and had been in his present po
sition since last October. His rooms were at
St Paul's House, a church charity on Sara
toga street, and about 9:30 yesterday morn
ing a shot was heard in his room, and tbe
matron, Mrs. Hunt, ran to the residence of
Re 7. J. a B. Hodges, rector of St Paul's,
and told him. Upon Mr. Hodges' arrival at
tbe House he burst open Mr. Schorr's door
ml found the young curate dead with a bul
let bole through his bead, the bullet having
crashed its way through the trail some over
Causes Suggeoted for the Act.
There are two causes which are believed to
ha'e incited Mr. Schorr to his rash deed. Tbe
firet was the fact that some time ago he be
caiie surety for a loan of $1,000 obtained by
a fiend, who failed to pay when the loan be
cai le due and Mr. Schorr had to pay it The
friend was to have made the sum good by
monthly payments, but he never did, blow
ing his brains out instead. This suicide
affcted young Schorr very deeply. Tbe
Otter and more probable cause is the fact
that be proposed marriage to a young lady
Sa'urday nigbt He was deeply enomored
of her, tut she rejected him, which so ex-cifc-d
bim that tbe young lady wrote a not
to Dr. Hodges about the matter.

AN OUTRAGE IN FRANCE.
Brutal Arrest and Incarceration of Three
EW YORK, May 27. A Philadelphia spe
cial to The World says: There will be laid
bef ire tbe state department at Washington
City to-day the details of an outrage on three
Nev York ladies traveling in France, which
for brutality exceeds any yet periietrated on
Airerioan tourists. The ladies, Mrs. A. L
Doit, Miss Fanny Nostrand, and Miss Nan
nie Marvin, ordered some garments from a
drevraaker, to be delivered at a certain time,
Thi dressmaker failed to keep her agreement,
and tbe ladies went to Mentone without re
ceh ing or paying for the garments.
The Ladles Forced Into a Cell.
That night they were arrested at their ho
tel, taken to the station-house, forced into a
cell, and confined there several hours. The
French police were brutal in making tbe ar
rest, and the outrage was perpetrated with
out regard for their sex, for the advanced
age of Mr Dorr, or for the unquestionable
ind cationsthat the ladies were well supplied
wit i money. Tbe families of these ladies
are well known in New York, Philadelphia

Again Capital Notes.
Washington City, May 87. The residents
at Guthrie, Oklahoma, are having a season
of excitement over the doings of the city
council which was elected at tbe organization
of the town, and public meetings have been
held demanding their resignation and a new
election. The trouble is that the councilmen,
"clothed with a little brief authority cut
such fantastic capers" as made the sovereign
citizen of Guthrie dive into the recesses of bis
mind in search of new and expressive cuss
words. The council did well at first and
brought order out of chaos in quick time and
few motions, but having done that, and hav
ing an eye to tha main chance, they are now
trying to bring a little profit out of tbe red
sand of which the territory and especially
Guthrie seems principally composed.
Looking Ont for Number One.
Tbe council are appointing officers at big
salaries, and it goes without saying that the
officers are men who can be tru-tet Among
these officials are two or three boards of ar
bitration to settle disputes as to claims of
lots. It is charged that the councilmen took
time by the forelock when it came to "getting
there," anl did w wait for 13 m. April 22.
That being the case tbe arbitrators ignore
that fact in deciding who owns a lot, and go
on tbe principle of first come first served.
Arbitration came high, too, and the position
is a decidedly nice, soft one. Then the coun
cil is going right ahead to provide Guthrie
with the nppurtances of a metropolitan oity.
They have granted a franchise to a water
works company; also to build a bridge,
grade the streets, etc., and are generally mak
ing the money (which they raise by high
taxes and other means, such as heavy licenses
for doing business in tbe town) fly.'
A Meeting and a Protest.
The above facts are from a letter written
to the interior department by Inspector
Pickler, who goes on to say that a petition
asking tbe council to call an election for a
new one was signed last Friday week by
about all the citizens of tbe place. Inde
pendently of this the citizens held a meeting
and had passed resolutions to notify the pres
ent council that they were "fired," mayor
and all, and appointing a committee of seven
to call a new election. There was much ex
citement, and some of the coooler heads
called on Inspector Pickler to talk to the
meeting. He did so, and after much trouble
succeeded in getting the resolution reconsid
ered and a committee appointed to ask the
council to order an election by ballot,
with registration of voters, etc., and the in
spector says he has no doubt the request will
be complied with.
An Interesting Study.
Mat Pickler says it is a very interesting
study to watch this pure democracy evolve
a government and set their machinery in
motion, but it will be done peaceably, orderly
and without trouble, if liquor does not enter,
and the United States marshals and deputies
are to be commended for their vigilance in
this direction. New people are still arriving,
and the town (as does also Oklahoma City)
continues to grow as rapidly as at the begin
ning. It is simply wonderful. The city
governments of all the other towns in the
territory of Oklahoma are running smoothly
and tbe officers of the land offices are hand
ling the business in a very commendable
A telegram from Chicago says that J. A.
Ellis, a niemlier of the Guthrie council, is
there, and declares that Inspector Pickler's
story is grossly exaggerated.
A telegram from Guthrie says that another
disturbance occurred yesterday o-er an at
tempt to evict a settler from a lot The
troops were summoned and protected the

Washington Citt, May 27. Porry Heath,
Washington correspondent of The Indiana
polis Journal, sends the following to his
paper in relation to the story of trouble be
tween the president and United States Treas
A dispatch received here yesterday incor
porating an Indianaolis special to a Chicago
paper announcing that there was a "differ
ence" between Treasurer Huston and the pres
ident and that a "row" was imminent over
the distribution of offices to Hoosiers, and
that the former had gone to his home at
Connersville with his miud bent on resign
ing, created considerable stir in political, and
especially Indiana, circles. It took but a
short time, however, for those interested to
ascertain that there was no truth in the
The Hnosier Must Be Patient.
It is true that Mr. Huston has not suc
ceeded in securing appointments for all of
the Indiana friends he hoped to make happy;
but that is because their applications have
not been reached or there are not places for
them. This was to be expected. But be is
not complaining, and of course the president
does not blame him. The Hoosiers must be
patient and in due time the president with
the assistance and advice of Mr. Huston, the
Republican congressmen, the chairmen of the
county and other committees, and Republican
workers generally throughout the state, will
give to them just as many places as he can.
He intends to show his appreciation of them
and their work, and to demonstrate his grat
itude. But he must have time.
Commissioners to BaytL
Washington Citt, May 27. It is accepted
as a fact, notwithstanding that tbe state de
partment refuses to confirm it that a com
mission will be sent soon to Hay ti to negotiate
for a coaling station in Haytien waters.
Whether there is anything else in the wind is
not known, but there is a deal of speculation
as to the commission being instructed in the
line of the "vigorous foreign policy," of which
Blaine is said to be tbe advocate. The com
missioners are said to be Gen. Lew Wallace
and Col. Beverly Tucker.

Washington Citt, May 27. To-morrow

age of 62 years, has been a most excellent

of tbe office with as brilliant a record as any
army officer could possibly have.

Washington Citt, May 27. Congress

After having been precipitated Friday night
at Berwin down a thirty-foot embankment to
the track of the Pennsylvania railroad, her
body pinned to tbe ties by the debris of a
wrecked phaeton and a struggling horse so
that she could not move, she lay there while
the western express train came thundering
on and never fainted. Fortunately her bead
was nearly six inches from the rail. She
felt the scalding heat of the fire-chamber as
the engine dashed by, but smiled when she
was released and wanted to clamber up the
Went Over an Knibankment.
Miss Brady and Mr. H. F. Ward.an amateur
photographer, had been on a twenty-five-mile
trip to obtain some views, and were on
their way home when the horses got restive
near the railway track, and Ward got out
and went to their heads. The animals began
to bark toward the embankment. Ward ran
to the phaeton and tried to rescue Miss
Brady, but it was too late. George W.
Johnson and his brother William, who live
on the other side of the embankment, came
rushing down and across the track with a
The Express Train Coming.
Suddenly came the rumble of the express
train. One of the Johnsons seized the lantern
and ran down the track just as the headlight
gleamed around the curve. He waved the
lantern frantically. The engfneer saw that
there was trouble, and put on tbe brakes.
Mr. Ward called to Miss Brady and asked if
she could move herself. She answered "Na"
A neighbor called out in despair: "My God,
tbe girl will lie killed." Then the men sprang
to one side, and the train crashed into the
horse and phaeton, both of which projected
over the rails. Tbe train came to a stop just
before tbe last two cars reached the debris.
Mr. Ward, by this time frantic, sprang for
ward expecting to see his companion be
headed. The -Brave Clrl "11 RlchU"

A Ship's Stoker Gives an Ocean Terror
Some Wood to Chew.
New York, May 27. John Kelly, a stoker
on board the ocean steamship George W.
Clyde, which arrived from Hayti Friday, is
the hero of a wonderful tale. Tbe George
W. Clyde started from San Domingo city
and touched Porto Plato and Cape Hayti. A
man can get drunk there for about 2 cents,
and some of tbe sailors seized the opportu
nity with alacrity, among them Kelly, who
was more than "three sheets in the wind"
when the ship sailed.
" Man Overboard ! "
Suddenly, to the horror of the many pas
sengers who stood on deck watching tbe calm
eea, the groggy seaman jumped overboard.
There was a panic. Tbe passengers crowded
to the side of the vessel, and one of them, in
his anxious efforts to save the stoker's life,
threw a chair after him. It was a plain
wooden chair, about t wo feet high, with a wide
com I or tal ile seat Kelly grasped the chair and
managed to get into a comfortable floating
The Tier of the Ocean.
In the meantime the crew on board were
making ready to pass tbe liue out when a
cry or horror came from tbe passengers: "A
shark I A shark!" and the back of a huee
shark was seen close to the wretch in the
water. The sense of danger sobered the
stoker better than the Kith in the warm sea
had done. He awoke to the terrible situa
tion to which be seemed doomed, while the
passengers kept on screaming. The shark bad
disappeared, and tbe m-xt moment his fear
ful throat would stick up from underneath,
ready to swallow its prey of human flesh.
Kelly Shows Ilia Nerve.
This tbe stoker knew, and be hastily swam
five or six fest to one side. Tbe next mo
ment the widely-opened jaws of tbe monster
stuck out from the water. Then Kelly rose
to the occasion. He grablied the chair and
threw it into the abyss of death that was
yawning beside bim. The shark seemed puz
eled. This was a morsel he had Kever tasted
before. He wrangled with the fleshless bones
with surprise and disgust.
Hauled Aboard All Safe.
In the meantime, while the monster was
shaking and worrying tbe chair, his hideous I
eyes blazing with anger, John Kelly was I
brought on board with little difficulty, as
sober as possible. The passengers surrounded
the stoker, warmly congratulating him on
his miraculous escape.
