KINGSBURY & SON,
170.r Secend Avenue.
We were approached a fVw days ago to become a party to
scheme which was explained to ns in the following language:
"We (the schemers) will place a half dozen men in your city and will
visit every house, offering for sale a ticket costing the purchaser 25 cents.
This will entitle the ho'der any time within six months to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $-.75 making a total of l! (HI a dozen
Cabinets and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame aud
pictures you can represent as worth $4, f " or $G; we will swear it's worth
whatever you say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the
25 cents that we collect. t)h", yes, the public will bite at worse than this.
Rut its a great scheme as the frame you give away costs $12 00 per bun
dred, 12cts with every order. Suppose one of your neighbors were to go
into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $2.00 per dozen, Buy the extra
picture and frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme he
would get 12.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame, FhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the leading photo
grapher but we are bound to work it through some one. Yes, we may
strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. We give no bond
that be will contiuue in business, but he w ill if he can, because you see
this Scheme gives him better iirioeai than lie now obtains."
It is needless to say that KASMUHSEN declined to employ peddlers and
tramps TO wohk such questionable tactics. The only means we use to
create business are:
1st. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
2d. We guarantee satisfaction.
3d. Our Gallery contains more aud better instruments, back-grounds
and all appliances for making Photos, twice over, than all the other Gal
leries in the city combined.
Whenever such inducements can be offered it is unnecessary to employ
"Tramp Ticket Fakirs," but that they are now being employed here in
Rock Island is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

Last evenirg Coroner Hawes sum
moned a jury composed of H. C. Wivill,
Geo. Foster, L. V. Eckhart, Phillip Mil
ler, John Albn cht and I. Bamberger and
proceeded to the scene of young Dimick's
death and made examination of the body.
Adjournment was then taken until this
morning, when the task of taking the ev
idence was con menced at Coroner Hawes'
The first witness examined was Mary
Ranshaw, who testified that she resided
at No. 117 Nineteenth street ("the
toboggan.") She said she was twenty-
four years of tige and a seamstress; was
at 11? Nineteenth street on Saturday
night, July 27. Dimick came in about
10:30 p. m. and asked for a drink
of cider; I gayishim the cider. Miss Cook
and myself were standing inside the bar

cated. Witness testified she saw Mrs.
Dimick open the glass door and step into
the room and say: "It is here I found
you, you dirty pup!" and walk up to him.
drew her p stol and fired at him
Dimick threw up his hands and said.
"My God, Li'.zie, you have shot me f
She then drew the revolver on the wo
man behind tie counter and said: "you
are the dirty thing that is running after
my husband!" "I was behind the bar and
pulled the pistol out of her hand. There
was no one there but us three. Mrs.
Dimick said 'Oh, my God, have I shot
you?' Dimici replied, 'You have fixed
me now.' Th iu 1 ran out the front door
and threw the revolver out in the weeds.
Dimick could walk, the witness said, and
his wife walked down the steps
aDd cot him irto the buggy and drove
him home. Witness stated she knew
Dimick only by heresay. He had not
been there in r ne year, but she had been
! there since li e cHh of June last. She
further said the ran from behind the
counter and tr ok hold of the pistol and
held to it until Mrs. D. let go of it, and
then threw it rut.
Alice Cook Hated her residence was at
the same plact on Nineteenth street, her
age twenty-tbiee years and occupation,
housework. Was not acquainted with L
D. Dimick. Last she saw of him was in
that house, 1 17 Nineteenth street at
10 :'M p. m , Saturday. That was the
second time she had ever seen him. Then
she said, "it is no saloon; we sell cigars
and cider. He came there about 10:30 and
was there abo it five minutes before he
was shot." Witness never saw Mrs. Dim
ick until that night, and first saw her
when she camt in through the glass door,
when she bad come through the broken
pane. She si.id: "Here you are, you
dirty pup; this Is where I found you,
and pnll"i th revolver and fired. mod id
to me, "you are the dirty thing that is
running after my husband," and put the
revolyer in my face. Mary Ranshaw
grabbed the revolver and walked around
from the end c f the counter and took it
from her. Diuick said: "My God, Liz
zie, you have shot me," and she said, "Ob,
Lute, my husband, I have killed you,"
and went to him. Dimick staggered
back toward the glass door, where
Mrs. D. bad entered. Witness also
sid: ''Dimick was not in the house
ten minutes wlen his wife came in. I
do not know Mis. Dimick. I never saw Mr.
Dimick but out e before through a win
dow . His wife took him by the arm and
took him to the buggy, and I suppose
drove him home. There was no strug
gle between Dimick and his wife. She
was about six feet from him when she
shot at him."
Dr. Calvin Truesdale stated that he
was summoned by telephone to go to
Dimick's stable Saturday night. On ar
rival he found L. D. Dimick in a buggy
on his knees leaning forward on a seat
and manifest ng great pain. Wit
ness bad him taken out of the
buggy and up stairs to his room. On
stripping, witness found a gun or pistol
shot wound jiist below the edge of the
heart and over the seventh rib. . 'I imme
diately gave bin an hypodermic injection
of morphine to relieve the pain. In the
meantime Dr. Cowden came in and on
further examination of the body we found
what we supposed to be a bullet under
the skin over ibe region of the left kid
ney, which we removed, He had a fair
pulse and did not seem to be suffering
from the 6hock very much. We were
disposed to tiink that the ball had
glanced from the rib and passed around
without passing- through the body. Dim
ick had been drinking, evidently, and
from that cause and from the morphine
given him, was somewhat delirious
through the night. I remained
until 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning.
When I first spoke to him he seemed to
be fully impressed with the idea that be
was going to iie and volunteered the
declaration that his wife was in no way
to blame; that the shooting was occa
sioned by his c rasping the pistol in en
deavoring to Use it from his wife. This
declaration, of his was corroborated by
the fact that the shirt over that part of
his body where the bullet entered bad a
hole burned it and the shirt for some dis
tance around the burnt hole was black
from partially burnt powder, showing
conclusively to my mind that the pistol
must have been in very close contact with
the body, and could not have taken place
had the firing been done at any distance
away. The direction of the ball was
The doctor then told of the change in
the patient's condition Sunday, which al
tered the theory as to the nature of the
wound and established the belief that the
ball had cut through the kidneys. Dr.
Truesdale further said: "Sunday he be
came a little more quiet and fully ration
al. He learned by some means, I do not
know how, that his wife had been arrest
ed. He manifested a great deal of feels
ing and again reiterated bis former state
ment as to how he came to be shot." The
doctor said the cause of death was un
questionably the result of the pistol shot
wound. The shirt worn by Dimick was
also submitted, showing close proximity
when the pistol was fired.
Farrell Brennan was sworn, and said
that he was twenty-three years of age, a
hostler in Dimick's batn. Had known
L. D. Dimick ten years. He testified:
"Saturday evening was my night off.
Dimick asked me if I would stay that
night, and I did stay. Mr. Dimick
asked his wife if she wanted to go to the
show. She said she would like to go and
stay a short time, but thought it too
warm to be long down there. He said he
wanted to stay at home acd attend to
business. Dimick said to bis wife, ' will
you go with Harry Brady?' and she said
she would go with him a little while.
Mrs. Dimick got ready and she and
Harry Brady started for the show. After
she went Dimick was sitting in front, and
a young man came along and stepped up
to speak to him. Dimick said to me, '.
want to use the black horse this even
ing.' At about ten minutes of 8 o'clock
he said, "hitch up the horse.' . The young
man said 'where are you going Lutet'
to which Lute replied. 'I am going
down town; will you ride along down?'
Both got in the buggy, and the young
man asked him if be could ride
with him as far as the Rock
Island house. . Mrs. Dimick re
turned about 10 o'clock; Harry Brady
was with her. She saj, 'where is Lute?'
I said 'he is out. She said 'the black
horse is out?" I answered 'yes.' Mr9
Dimick said 'I am going over to the drug
store; will be back in a few minutes.' In
about fifteen minutes she returned with
Dimick in the buggy. He was leaning
over on one side of the buggy and called
to me to 'get the doctor soon as you can.'
Dr. Truesdale came and I helped carry
Lute up stairs. Lute said when be came
in the stable 'my God I am gone,' and
said to his wife 'Lizzie you are not to
blame; I wish it had happened a long time
This concluded the testimony, and the
jury after deliberating over it until noon
adjourned until 3 o'clock this afternoon .
The jury had not yet agreed at 4:15
this afternoon, and at that time Coroner
Hawes, who had become naturally pro
voked, gave instructions to the jury to
agree or state its inability to agree with
out delay, that he might, if necessary,
get another jury.
