James Whelan, a young man twenty
three Tears of ago, whose home is in
Sheffield where hi mother re tides, and
who has been employed by thj dim of
Lark in & Stephens, Mr. Larkiu being his
uncle, met with a terrible misf mune and
one that will probable cost bin his life
shortly before 3 o'clock this morning.
How it happened will probably nerer be
known, but at any rate he was run down
by a passing switch engine in the Rock
Island yards bark or the Cabli mansion
and near the target where the Rock Isl
and and the Burlington tracks cross, his
left arm being crushed to a pu p and In
juries sustained about the het.d, which
from appearances, must prjve fatal.
Whelan says that he attemptec to cross
the track and thought he had abundance
of time and the neit thine he knew he
picked himself up at the side or the track
bis left arm banging in shred; and bis
head bleeding and terribly cut. He made
his way to the target house, a few roils
distant, and Henry Oest, the 'arget ten
der, took the sufferer in and miuie him as
comfortable as possible, wbilt he tele
phoned the company's surgeon. Dr. S. C.
riummer. On arrival, the latter saw at
once that the injuries were of t very seri
ous nature and he ordered tht the man
be taken borne at once, but ater it be
came evident that St. Luke's hrspital was
the best place for him and thit ler be was
conveyed. There Drs. Carer, Barth
and riummer found the lef. forearm
and arm from uiej elbow up to the
juncture of the mille and upper third
crushed and mangled in a moet shocking
manner, and amputation at out three
inches below the shoulder joint was nec
essary. On the right side of the
bead there was a scalp wound about
threeand-ashalf iuches long, while
the frontal bone was dep -eased and
communated from the corontl suture
forward three inches, by one snd a half
inches in width. The wound I. as the ap
pearance of being cut by the fWnge of
the car wheel. The doctors found the
operation of dressing this wo ind a very
difficult one, as a large quanli y of small
particles of bone Did to be jicked out
before it could be dressed, anil while the
patient is rational, they state the chances
are against him. as the reaction from the
shock must produce very sever results.
Whelan is unable to tell aoytnmgof
the circumstances of how he tame to be

was dressed as if going away, an 1 it is sup

matter bow filthy it may be. yet he did
that very thing this morning. On his
way down town and somewbtre between
Eighteenth street and Market fquare after
crumpling a piece of paper in bis pocket
for some distance he threw it away.
Later the fact dawned upon hh mind that
he had previously stuck a I fty dollar

taken the discarded paper and on investi

He must have been reading tie Uniun'i

However, the mayor will pay a suitable

THE HEAD-UOOBER TRIAL.
ASIallrloaa Attack aa the Prealatatt
Klder aa Well aa Faster ae. aaa the
The Peoria Journal a few days since
copied from the Galesburg Press and
reople a two column attack, not only on
Presiding Elder Head but upon
Pastor Gue, of this city, purport
ing to be a statement from the
standpoint of Mr. Hoober regard
ing the recent trial of himself and
Mr. Head. Marked copies of these pa
pers were mailed to every newspaper of
importance in the state, and to Mr.
Hoober's old parisboners in Smithen, IN
linois, and also to about eyery member of
Mr. Gue' church in Rock Island. The
evident object of this scheme was not
only to work injury to Mr. Head but to
Mr. Gue, and in view of the fact that
when the conference closed that vindK
cated Mr. Head of roost of the charges
and of all of the serious ones, no atten
tion was paid to it by the Arqos. But
one of Mr. Head's former parishioners has
come to bis defense In the following
communication to the Peoria Journal:
Ed. Journal: We notice in your Sat
urday's issue a nauseating mess from the
Galesburg Prtu purporting to be a
christian review of the Head and Hoober
trial at the late conference at Galesburg.
We were a little surprised to see the col
umns of the Journal used in circulating
the paid statements of Hoober from such
an unreliable source. We are quite sure
that the Journal would not father such
onesided statements. The article is low,
unchristian and ungentlemanly, and with
all its pretended sanctity cannot hide its
true ppiril . The columns of the Journal.
however, have given it respectability and
must be credited with the reply. The
trial is over, and a long bitter fight
ended. The preachers returned to Uwir
homes humiliated, and many of them sick
of the whole business. Elder Head had
no fault to find with the report of the
committee, while Hoober claimed to be
vindicated and satisfied. Now what is
his plain christian duty in such a case?
Is he to continue to whine and wince
around like Peck's bad boy, because of
wrongs discovered and floggings received
yesterday? Or is be to rush to the press
for the healing of bis wounds, and the
reestablisbment of a saintly character? If
vindicated and satisfied, what more does
be want? It does look very much as if
he was not quite sure that the stains had
not all been rubbed out.
The public has doubtless had enough
of this already, and much more than in
telligent people care to hear, but it is
very hard to be compelled to eat stale
meat without resistance. Elder Head has
many warm friends here in Peoria, and in
Hale chapel, who propose to stand by
him; but for the sake of peace and the
good of all concerned they have kept
silent. Not one word has appeared in
print from them in any of our city papers,
but now justice demands them to speak.
Hoober's pretended review of the case
was altogether misleading, and some of
his statements absolutely false. He
quotes one witness as saving that three
tourtbs of the people of Hale chapel were
opposed to the return of Rev. Tullis. It
looks very much as if this statement was
made for eflect and not for the cause of
truth. What the witness said was that
be believed that three fourths of the peo
ple of Hale chapel were opposed to the
prosecution of Elder Head by Hoober,
and bis friends in the church. Then
when he saked if he believed the Rev.
Tullis was assisting Hoober, why the
church unanimously asked for bis return,
be stated that none voted in the nega-
but some did not vote, because of
the Rev. Tullis, and that the church was
not unanimous by any means. It is a
little strange to say the least to begin a
newspaper article with a terrible woe
pronounced upon tbe christian liar in
self-vindication of what a six-days' trial
failed to accomplish, and then prove
yourself one in an article.
This trial was the most bitterly con
tested one that has been before the con
ference for years. esecially was this true
n the part of the prosecution. They
were determined to humiliate the elder by
taking bim off his district, and this is all
tbey hoped to do. but in this they signal
ly failed, and Hoober. is evidently still
mad. Nothing criminal was sustained
agairst the elder, but it does look as if
the brethren finally agreed to let Rev.
Cummings admonish the elder just a lit
tle, in order to beal the wounded feelings
of the good Hoober. Now as a friend of
the elder, we want to say, if Mr. Hoober
and bis friends want to bring up the
whole nauseating mess of evidence for
and against, and the part that Hale chap
el took and must take in this whole mat
ter that the people may be able to form
an opinion as to who came out of the
furnace with the least smell of fire on bis
garments, we are ready, but for the sake
of Hoober himself and tbe suffering pub
lic, we mucn prerer to leave it lust where
tbe fifteen judges left it after bearing all
tbe evidence pro and con. Obsehtbh.
Mr. Hmd waa eaea thla morning sad
be staled that while he had conversed but
little on tbe subject since the trial, and
especially with newspapers, yet he felt
ery indignant at the course Hoober had
pursued, and he believed it a malicious,
contemptible and underhanded effort on
his part to injure both him (Head) and

era) members aa did 'Disowned,' all did
themselves and the play fine justice
Nrom a spectacular standpoint 'The Sea
naif is tbe company's best play. Tbe
scenery in each of their productions is
special and fine, but the great tank scene
in last night s play is most realistic, and
v. as so manipulated that there were but
few in the audience who did not imagine
themselves for the nonce looking upon a
real storm on a real sea, and applauding
tbe beroism or tbe boy who ventured
across tbe bay on such a night. This sea
scene is indeed a fine one.
The famous Campinini-Whimey com
binalion appears at tbe Burtia, at Daven

McDarrah replied that be had no reason
to resign, as he was perfectly satisfied
with his job. This morning tbe boss
again approached McDarrah, and asked
him if he tad not changed his mind,
and why his resignation was not forth
coming. To this Mr. McDarrah
replied that he did not propose to resign,
and that if he wanted to get rid of bim to
remove him without any foolishness or
