TO CONTROL A CHILI).
A Struggle Between a Sister and a
Am Adopted Boy, and What a Claim
o Him Lea to Ab Exritlnjc Time.
Consldeiable of a sensation was created
on the ferry between 5 and 6 o'clock last
evening, and later on the streets of Rock
Island, by the efforts of Rev. Geo. K.
Hoover, Iowa state superintendent of
the American Educational association,
to recovei from Daisy uorey a young
girl of about eighteen years, her brother
John Q. C rey, a boy eleven years of age.
ine circun stances or the case are some
what peci liar, and became quite excit
ioR in the manner in which they cul
minated lant evening.
, Six or seven years ago John Corey
lived with his family, consisting of his
wife and three children at Muscatine.
The woma i was his second wife, he be
ing the father of four other older chil
dren by ti former wife. About the
time mettioned, Corey being out
of work, and there being do
mestic difficulties in his family,
left home io search of employment.at his
trade, that of a steam and gas fitter.
Mrs. Corey soon after became mentally
deranged aid was sent to Mercy hospital
at Davenport, where she is still confined.
Corey then arranged with bis wife's sis
ter, Mrs. Anna M. Frolaich, to take care
of the younger children three in number
Daisy, J )hnny Q. and Elsie paying
her weekly for the service thus performed.
The cbildron did not get along well with
the aunt and three years ago Daisy ran
away and for some time has been keeping
house for ler father in Davenport, who,
by the nay, is now employed in
the new Milan canning factory. The
other cbil lren did not receive the
proper d scipline and care under
their aunl't charge in Muscatine and
Rev. Wilcox, pastor of the Baptist
church there, who is also connected with
the American Educational association,
took their case before Judge Waterman
in the district court of Muscatine count
ty and the -esult was that Mr. Wilcox
was appointed guardian of the children,
and he decided to turn the boy over to
the American Educational association,
that he mi( bt be placed in proper hands.
Yesterday Mr. Wilcox determined to
send the bey to Superintendant Hoover
at Davenport, and this was what led to
the disturbance of last evening. The
boy was stirted from Muscatine on the
Firefly, a tilegram being cent to Mr.
Hoover to meet the boy at the C, R. I.
& P. depot at Davenport at noon, but
he did not get there in time and
when the train arrived, Johnny learned
through a drayman the location of his
sister. He found her, and after relating
bis story to her she decided to take him
out to their father at Milan.
The girl and boy mide the trip with
out incident, and on returning home the
lady who occupies the same house with
the girl in Davenport told her that Mr.
Hoover had called several times during
the afternoon in quest of the boy, and
was detera ined to get him. The girl,
Daisy, immediately started back to Mi
lan, and ht.d reached the ferry dock on
the Davenport side when she was con
fronted by Mr. Hoover, who demanded
That gentleman had in the
meantime reached the depot, and
finding the train had arrived, traced
the boy to Daisy's home, made several
visits there in search of bim and had
gone to th 3 dock to await the return of
the two from Milan when he discovered
them. Hi approached the girl and
asked her lier name, and learning it, told
the boy tbut he intended to meet him at
the train, etc., and that he had a good
home arranged for him in the country.
The boy pud no attention to Mr. Hoov
er's remarks, but the girl spoke for bim
and said tbat the boy was her brother and
she was taking him to Milan. Mr.
Hoover toe k hold of the boy to take him
back up town, but the girl pulled the
other way tnd then it was that the ex
citement bgan. The girl began to cry
and Mr. Hoover lost his temper and
made some unbecoming remarks to sev
eral gentl imen, who, not knowing the
circumstances, interferred on behalf of
the girl. Just then the ferry started off
and the girl and ber brother jumped
on the back deck. Mr. Hoover jumped
on in fror.t, and when the ferry landed
on this sir e refused to let the children
get ofi, and they went back to the other
side. The gentlemen who had witnessed
the early part of the proceedings were in
waiting there, as was quite a crowd, that
had congregated, and all in sympathy
with the girl. Mr. Hoover hurried to
the police patrol station, and sent in an
alarm, which brought the Davenport pa
trol wago i, and Captain Martin to the
boat, and while the officer was talking to
the girl, tie boat pulled out again, and
brought thu officer to this side, Mr. Mar
tin refusir g, however, to make any ar
rests. A Lumber of the crowd who had
witnessed -he entire affair, and were de
termined t see the girl through, came
over on th ) trip. When the boat touched
landing here, the girl seized her brother
and leaped off on the dock. Hoover
interfered, but was prevented from
offering --any forcible resistence to
the girl's determination to take her
brother, and be then went to
Mr. Harm'i saloon and telephoned to the
Rock Ialt nd police station. Officer
Sexton stated toward the boat, but met
the crowd in front of Mitchell & Lynde's
bank. -Che officer refused to
do anything further than to dis
perse the crowd, and Mr.
Hoover went to Justice Cooke and ob
tained an order to Marshal Miller to hold
the boy until this morning, and the lit
tie fellow if as taken to the station
A collec Aon had in the meantime been
taken up f ir the girl, and one of the
crowd fan isbed a rig and drove her out
to Milan to see her father, who came in
last night i Ad stated that he desired to
retain con rol of the boy. This morns
ing, however, Mr. Hoover brought over
an order from the guardian to Marshal
Miller to deliver the boy to him, and
this was done.
A prominent tri city society event was
the marriage at Trinity church, Daven
port, last evening, of Miss Mamie Leon
ard to Mr. Nicholas Eubnen, Jr. Many
were present from this city. The Demo
rrooabiy no two Davenport16 young
people nave been more widely known,
more universally popular, than Miss Ma
mie Leonard, whose home has been with
ber uncle, Judge James Grant, and Mr.
Nicholas Kuhnen. Jr. Last' evening
friends vied with friends to do them
honor, and bid them God speed in their
happiness. At 7-30, when the rector of
Trinity church. Rev. D. C. Garrett, en
tered the chancel the auditorium was
filled with a company. The dec
orations, which were placed by Mrs.
Bills, the florist, were beautiful in the
extreme. Tropical plants, roses, smilax.
creamery flowers of the catalpa, blos
soms and buds, were intertwined with
vines until the chancel and choir were
transformed into a bower of beauty.
The most notable floral piece was the
double gate spanning the central aisles
through which the bridal party passed.
The letters "L" and "K" were
wrought in tints, and the pillars.
were or purest white. The bride en
tered on tbe arm of her uncle. Her dress
was of poult de soie with Domt d' sd
plique trimming and a veil of tulle fasten
ed by a diamond Din. She carried a
bunch of snowy perle de jardin roses.
Her maid of honor was Miss Nell Larimer
of Omaha, and the bridesmaids were
Misses Marguerite Eubnen, Annie Kuh
ner and Lilla Gleim. Their dresses were
of white crepe and each carried a bunch of
jacquiminot roses. The brideBgroom's
best man was Mr. James P. Donahue.
while Messrs. Ed. Van Patten. Harry
Wadsworth, Tim Murphy and Ernest
Allen officiated as ushers. The daintv
pages who entered the silken bands
of the floral eate and unrolled the
ribbons on either side the aisle were
Nellie Leonard, Alice Eubnen, Bessie
Cassell and Hugh Barr, Jr. Through
the service the organ was heard softly,
and in the two wedding marches the
Lohengrin and Mendelssohn rendered
while tbe bridal party were passing to
the church and again when they retraced
tbe aisle, the harmony was rich and
beautiful. Preceding the service a double
quartette half concealed by a floral screen.

with charming effect. The chorus were
Misses Fay and Todd. Mrs. Richards.
Mrs. Downer and the T. E. quartette.
After the troth had had been mutually

guests to the number of 300 assembled
at the residence of Judge Grant, where

Aid. Daniel Corken, wbo returned
yesterday from his trip up the river, re
ports having made a thorough inspection
of the various kinds of paving material in
use at St. Paul, and also the wonderfully
rapid growth that city is making. He
was particularly interested-in the new
mummoth building of the Pioneer Prexs
company which is to be three stories high
and the largest newspaper building in the
world. He was several days going and
coming the guest of Capt. Whistler, of
the F. C. A. Denkman, and of Capt.
O'Connor, of the LeClaire Belle, and he
reports both as having entertained him
handsomely. He says Capts. Whistler
and O'Connor are veritable advertisers of
Rock Island that they never loose a
chance to say a good word tor the city
along the river. At Winona Aid. Corken
saw Capt. Thompson and 2ir. J. E.
Cooke and they treated him royally. Al
together he is exceedingly delighted with

A dispatch from Galesburg says tbe
cross-examination of the Rev. C. A.
Nybladh, charged with the paternity of
Anna Anderson's child, consumed all day
yesterday and is not yet completed. His
answers were frequently fragmentary and
vague. Tbe prosecution was hampered
by the continual objections and com
ments of his attorneys. He was accused
of having a convenient memory. He
denied having written or received the
damaging letters produced in court or of
having giyen Anna Anderson any pres
ents whatever. Tbe prosecution an
nounced that it should endeavor to prove
his complicity in these things by other
The first witness was Miss Anderson,
who appeared in court with a three-year-
old child, which she charges Nybladh
with being the father of. Although
closely questioned by Nybladh's attor
neys, she told a straightforward story,
and was earnest in her story that the
pastor had led her estray while she was
at work in the college in Rock Island,
while he was a student there. Nybladh
was put npon the stand in the afternoon,
and denied every charge made against
him, yet admitting that he had paid $550
to the girl when the child was first born,
but this, he says, be did to save the girl
from disgrace and to save himself from
suspicion. He claimed that a Chicago
lawyer came to him at Rock Island tbe
day be graduated, and blackmailed bim
into paying the money. Nabladh's at
torney claims that the whole thing is a
put-up job, and that as soon as this case
is settled. Miss Anderson's attorney and
several of the most prominent members
of the First Lutheran church at Gales
burg, would be held responsible. The
trial is creating the most intense feeling
among the church people, and the circuit
court room has been engaged to accoms
modate tbe crowd.
Among other parties who are present
to attend the trial is the Rev. Mr.
Lindeblad. of Moline. There was served
on him a summons to appear as defendant
in a $10,000 slander suit entered by Nyb
ladh in the October term of tbe circuit
court. Nybladh charges Lindeblad with
being the author of his troubles.
Andreas' combined shows came to
Rock Island to-day, and this morning a
good many people came down town to
see the parade. It was not as big or at

be, but it does claim that it is all it ad
vertises, and it often happens that the
best goods are done up in the smallest

out to witness this afternoon's perform

will be given, which will doubtless also
be well attended.
