A horse att ached to a side-bar buggy
came down Seventeenth street at a rat
tling gait last night, but was halted be
fore it did any great damage.
A team belonging to Chas. Vandevcer,
living on Big Island, broke away from a
hitching post in front of Stewart & Moots
gomery's store this morning and tore
down Second avenue and across Market
Square to Third avenue and down as far
as Bean's grocery at a frightful rate. On
Second avenue the maddened brutes col
lided with a buggy belonging to N. R.
Zeigler, of Moline, which was overturned
and the horse injured, while at Third
avenue and Seventeenth street the wagon
was left on the sidewalk. As it hap
pened, no one was injured, but it is
marvellous that such is the case as the
horses were in a blind fury. Such
vicious beasts ought not to be brought
into a community of civilized beings.

F. M. Strohmer, living out on the bluff,
was arrested - by Officers Kramer and
LoDg last night on complaint of bis wife,
who charged him with abusive conduct.
Magistrate Wiyill held him in bonds of
$300 to keep the peace. Strohmer had
published a card in a Moline paper,
warning the public not to trust his wife.
The latter retaliated by inserting a no
tice that he bad not supported his family
for five months; that her husband is an
anarchist, and has been particularly un
reasonable since be had bis foot taken
off by jumping from a train in Daven
port. His well-known principles in this
direction, she says, lost him his place on
the island, and has made it difficult for
him to get work anywhere. She de
clared that what money he does mike he
spends for his own uses, not for bis
family. All this vexed Strohmer, and

It was sultry and raining hard last night
and tbe fire refused to barn. The only place
where any work was done was at the raft,
where dynamiting was continued through
out the entire day, and a large part of the
upper end has been dislodged. Some of the
hots fire yesterday were terrific both in
effect and noise. One charge contained 140
pounds of the explosive.
Terrible Odor from the Debris.
The smell of burned and decaying flesh
almost drove the dynamiters from their
work. The odor emenating from this pile of
debris is simply terrible. An effort will be
made to have tbe work at the bridge con

special inducement will probably be present

is to have everything thoroughly systema

Mr. Fulton, superintendent of the Cambria
Iron works, has declined to serve on Gov

that he is too busy with the work of getting
the Cambria plant in operation. The declin

cene in the Court Koom.
The see ie around the court was intensely
dramatics. Inside every seat and every foot
of ground was occupied and even the bench
was invtdod. Outside in the corridor a
great crcwd, made up in the main of
men wh se countenances denoted their
Celtic origin, struggled and tore
and bat in vain against the
tarred deors. Sullivan, escorted by Sheriff
Matson a id two deputies, was brought in by
a private entrance. Ho was a shade paler
than usuc I, and at the audible commotion
caused bj his appearance bis eye swept the
crowd with a bunted look, as if in appre
hension of a hostile demonstration. Then he
took a sei.t among his array of counsel.
The Judge Is Tardy.
Three 'clock was the time that had been
fixed by Judge Tuley for rendering the de
cision, but that hour came and went by. and
still his b nor was absent. As the minutes
went by Sullivan became perceptibly nerv
als, and his agitation was communicated to
the speciators. All sorts of rumors went
around the room concerning tbe delay, but
the hum of conversation stopped like a clock
when, at o:45, the judge made his apiear
ance. , Summary of the Evidence. .
Withoi t any delay he plunged into tbe
case. Having explained the petition and the
law unon which it was based, be proceeded
to briefly review the testimony taken by tbe
coroner's jury, and which had covered 1,100
pages of type written copy. He quoted
especially from the witnesses to whom
Cronin 1 ad said that Alexander Sullivan
would be the cause of his death, and that the
latter hail instigated a conspiracy to kill him.
None of this evidence, he said, would be ad
mitted in a court of law. This excluded there
was pra rtically no evidence against him.
It was conceited that Sullivan was an
enemy of Cronin; it was aW conceded that
Cronin was a bitter enemy of Sullivan.
Theories That Prove Nothing.
There were several theories of the murder.
One was that he was murdered by people for
revenge, growing out of the society troubles.
Assuming this to be so, what evidence was
there idt ntifying Sullivan with the crime?
He was not shown to be connected with the
renting cf tbe cottage or the hiring of the
horse ami buggy. It was not shown that be
knew O'f ullivan or bad met any of the other
prisoners No act could be traced home to
him. Tbe theory that Cronin was killed to
prevent the exposure of the secrets of the
triangle was unreasonable. It did not ap
pear tha: Cronin was tbe possessor of any
vital fact. All be had would have been in
existence after his death. He could not have
taken it with him, and all of the evidence
taken at the Buffalo investigation was in the
possession of Dr. McCabey, of I'hiladulphia,
and othei-s. As to tbe theory that it was
perpetrated as a result of a decree of the
Clan-na-l taeL the fact stood out that Sulli
van bad fevered his connection with that or
der years airo. How then could he influence
or control it ? It was not shown that he hail
ever met or had any business dealings with
any of the other conspirators. Tbe jury was
influenced by hearsay testimony.
The Strongest Evidence Very Weak.
The sti-ongest evidence against Sullivan
was furn shed by himself. It was the protest
Issued nv) days af :er the doctor s disappear
ance aga nst him sitting on tbe Sullivan trial
committee. It was couched in language of
extraordinary virulence and hatred. But that
very pu' titration at such a time tended to
show that. Sullivan bad no knowledge of the
conspirac y. It seemed incredible that if he
was a party to it be could promulgate such a
document right after tbe murder. The
evidence pointed to Sullivan as a man who
desired ivvenge on Cronin, but it pointed to
no overt act. Ito impartial man could make
up his mind that any jury would convict
Sullivan on this evidence. The mere fact
that one party was an enemy to tbe man
killed was no proof that he was a participant
in tbe murder.
The Final Conclusion,
He bad, therefore, come to the conclusion.
and not vithout very considerable hesitation.
that bail to such an extent as to secure his
appear an ee, should an indictment be found.
should be accepted. Sullivan preserved bis
usual com demeauor when tbe conclusion
was announced, and an attempt to applaud
was suppressed by tbe bailiffs.
Balled and at Liberty.
There was an argument between the state's
attorney nd Mr. Trude as to the amount of
bail. Tha latter, who said Sullivan was al
most entirely without means, thought (5.00()
to (10,010 was sufficient. Finally t'Jil.OOO
was agreed upon. Tbe four gentlemen named
swore to the aggregate possession of over
(500,000 of real estate, the bonds were made
out and signed, and Sullivan walked out of
court a free man.
The giand jury 8ent several hours in
bearing tbe witnesses who testified ' before
the ooror. er, but nothing of importance was
Another Arrest Made.
Tbe po ice last night arrested Thomas Tier
ney, a te imster employed by O'Sullivan, the
iceman, nnd be was locked up at the Central
station. Tierney baa been under surveil
lance eter since Dr. Cronin's body was
found, and it is believed that be knows
good deal about tbe murder.

Kansas City, Ma, June 15. William G.
Melville, a clerk In the offloe of the Trans
Miasouri Railroad association was hi Chioago
on April 15 last, and registered as TV. G.
Melville at McCoy's hotel in that city. Chi
cago detectives beard that John J. Maroney,
who is implicated in the Cronin murder,

and after comparison of Maroney 's hand

Tbe detectives also discovered, as is alleged.

They Present Their Grievances to Governor
Borey His Reply.
Indianapolis, June 15. A committee of
Clay county striking miners called upon
Governor Hovey yesterday and bad an audi
ence of an hour. Tbe committee represented
that they had very little work during the
present year, sometimes not more than two
days a week, and that wages had not aver
aged more than (5 per week to those who
had secured the most work. This was un
der the scale of 1888, and when it was pro
posed to reduce the scale still lower they saw
no possible chance of supporting tbemsplves
and families. They said that whole rami
liea bad had nothing to eat for a week ex
cept what had come through charity, and
some would have starved but for this.
A Concession from the Operators.
The governor then produced an agreement
which be secured from the operators and in
which they bad promised to make an allow
ance according to the 18S8 scale for their
coal, a concession that be had obtained. Tbe
committee contended that even this would
not enable them to make a living. They
seemed determined not to go to work, and
the governor told them that if application
were made to him by the commissioners of
the county he would issue a proclamation
calling upon the people to contribute to their
needs. Tbe committee took the agreement
signed by the operators and will submit it to
the strikers. Tbe number of dependents re
ported at Brazil yesterday was 5,203, and
only (300 in contributions for their support,
