One of the Freight Car Burglars A
Yeath'lwnfhll A Bold Barclary
Other Wrong Doings.
Mr. Ianiel Delancy, of Chicago, ar
rived at the Harper this morning, his
mission to Rock Island being a truly sors
rowful one. He is a successful business
man in Illinois metropolis, being a
member of the wholesale liquor firm of
Delaney & Murphy, on Nos. 10 and
12 ' Waltash avenue, and among the
men apprehended and bound over
here it cently in connection with
the friight car burglary in the
Rock It land yards, is his son. The
young n an when arrested gave the fic
titious Dime of Harry White, in hopes of
concealing his identity and the depths of
sin into which be had fallen, from his
parents. He was one of the two ar
rested in Davenport at the same time his
two other companions were caught here,
on the c ay following the burglary and
one wh) refused to come back to Illinois
without a requisition.
He is about twenty -four years of age
and during his youth was not only given
all the iid vantages essentiil to the mak
inn of t successful ctreer. bnt was en
dulled by his pnrcnts in every fond wish
of his heart. Asjtie advanced into man
hood h i became dissipated and finally
instead of carrying out the hopes and de.
sires of his parents and improving under
the protection of a happy home and the
guidance of kind parents, he left home
and net ame a rover. He came into con
tact w!th evil associations and chose
their ways instead of the paths his pa
rents h id laid out for him ana into which
they vainly labored to direct bis footsteps.
He lost his self-respect and became des
perate and recklcss.and one vice led on to
another until the crime for the commis
sion of which he and bis fellow prisoners
now fare the penitentiary.
His l ather, who has learned of his son's
downfall, and almt.sl bowed down with
sorrow and remorse over it. has come to
Rock Island, not particularly to intercede
in his tvhalf. but simply to see that jus
tice is done him, and if guilty, to offer no
obstacle to his suffering the penalty pre
scribed by law. The wreck of this young
man is indeed a shattered hope to his in
dtilgeiit parents, and thej circumstances
aresu:h as will be read with sorrow by
The police this morning arrested James
Miller, a river in -in, who has been in
Rock Island before, and who is wanted in
Winona, Minn not for a crime but to
testif j in behalf of the state for the pros-
jecutioa of another's murderous act in
which Miller was the victim. He was sit
ting 03 a barge near Winona last summer
when a man approached and attacking
him with a stiletto struck him several
vicious blows, inflicting a number of
j terrible wounds. The assailant was ar
rested and bound over. Miller in the
meantime leaving the town. Now the
trial h approaching, and Miller is wanted
as the most important, prosecutiocr wit
ness, 'ut for some reason he prefers not
toretirn to Winona to testify. Officer
Welch arrived from Winona and took
him i charge.

10:15 to find that in her absence the house
had been entered by means of a window
on tbe east side, and a pair bracelets, a

Tbe home of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Koeh

the joining or the lives of Mr. Geo. F.
Roth and Miss Mary E Koehler. Rev. A.
B. Meldrum performed the ceremony in
accordance with the ritual of the Episco

strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march,
played by Miss Lonie Koehler, cousin to

flower girls; then the bridesmaid. Miss
Millie DeSanto, and the best man, Mr.
Frederick Roth, and following them the

After the service and the extending of

on courtship and marriage. Mr. and
Mis. Roth received many handsome

On their return they will occupy their

Rock Island is proud to claim, and is
much admired both for her grace and
At the home of the bride's parents, Mr.
and Mrs. E. Terry, at Muscatine, last
evening occurred the marriage of Mr. W.
B. Mclntire and Miss Georgia Terry. It
was a quiet home wedding, but none the
less happy and important. The offi
ciating ministers were Rev. McCauley of
Wilton, tbe former home of the bride,
and Rev. W. S. Marquis of this city.
About fifteen were present from Rock
Island. Tbe ceremony was followed by
a sumptuous weddincr repast and
the display of a gorgeous list
of presents, including a beautiful set of
pearl handled silver knives and forks
from friends here, and a check for a lib
eral amount from the groom's father.
Mr. and Mrs. Mclntire left last night for
Kansas City, on their way to their new
home at Superior, Neb. The groom.who
is a member of the dry goods firm of Mc
