The grand jury referred to is
that of Whiteside county, but it waa

consequently no indictment could be

Mr. David T. Snider, of fears, waa
found dead in his bed at bia borne at 6
o'clock last night by bis wife, Mrs. Emma
Snider, on ber return from a visit to rela.
Uvea four miles beyond Milan, ber sister
and cousin returning with ber. Mr.
Snider bade bis wife good-bye in the
morning at 8.30 and was then i i apparent
good health. lie afterward came to
town and at 2:30 in tbe after loon waa
teen by Anna Koetter, a neigh or, to get
off a car and go directly home, entering
by tbe back way. There waa nothing in
his appearance then to denote illneaa.
On Mrs. Snider's return abe lefl ber sister
and cousin with the horse and entered
the bouse. She noticed Mr. Snider's bat
in tbe kitcben and going tip ttairt to bit
room saw bim lying iu bed. fbe spoke
to her husband, but received no reply
and approaching tbe bed waa frightened
by the ghostly white appearance of bit
face. She at once descended the
stairs and notified ber sitter and
cousin of her discovery, and expressed to
tbem her fear that her husband waa dead.
Cut. Thompson and J. D. Woodruff,
neigbbora, were called, and Dr. Geo. A.
Wiggins, of Milan, summoned. Tbe lat
ter made an examination of the bodv.
pronounced it dead, and tbe reault of
heart disease. The clothing waa re
moved except the under clothing, and tbe
body waa lying on tbe left tide and face.
There were no wounds or ev dences of
violence, and tbe tongue and throat did
not indicate corosive medicine or poison
entering the mouth, and the otter organs
were in normal condition, anl no evi
dence whatever of injury about the body.
The doctor thought Mr. Snider bad been
dead three or four houra.
Coroner Hawea, on being t otifled of
the tudden death proceeded to Hears, and
with a jury composed of C. Vr. Hawet,
Phil Miller, Lawrence Kramet, C. Bert
Seaia. William Bears and J. D.
Woodruff proceeded to hold an
inqueat, tbe evidence being practically at
abown by the atatement heretofore ap
pearing. A verdict of death from heart
disease waa returned.

la the face of all the braga certain of
tbe Davenport papen are making about
the "superiority" of the Davenport pave
ment now in process of construction
over the Rock Island pavement aome-
time ainoe completed, it afforda one
tometbing more than passing interest
to examine the modus operandi employed
across the river, and the manner inwhich
the pavement waa put dowa in llock Is
land. To begin. Rock Island put down
tlx blocks, whereat Davenport ia not em
barking in paving beyond the extent of
three blocks. But mark tbe contrast I In
Rock Island the contractors finished up
tbe work aa they progressed, and the
general traffic of the city was not in the
leaat particular interfered with. From
the first only one block was closed. and but
for a few daya, whereaa atreet car
transportation waa not interfered with
in the least degree, it being unnecessary
to transfer passengers during the entire
progress of the work. In Davenport
only one block it completed while two
others are torn np and closed to travel.
Street car passengers are transferred tbe
distance of a block, and through tbe en
tire paving district the car tracks are as
if tunning over a field of potatoe bills;
tbe atreet interaectiona are left to tbe
laat and atick up above the intervening
newly graded street like tbe old Second
avenue spavin backed hump. After rid
ing on a atreet car through the portion
excavated one feels at if be had been on
a sea voyage so much is the motion of
tbe car swayed aad rocked.
Tbe Davenport pavement may be all
right when it is completed and the Argu
hopes tbat it will be, but there ia woful
awkwardness shown in the operation,
which nevertheless would not have been
alluded to but for tbe way one Daven
port paper in particular bat departed
from its path of usefulness to follow the
dictations of envy and to unfairly critN
cize the way in which the work waa done

construction of thia very desirable pro

Tonight at Harper's theatre we are to

dy Nolan ia vastly relished at Tony Pas

A Terrible Wreck.
trainmen on tne council Blunt ex
press on the Rock Island road, arriving
here this morning, tell of a terrible wreck
on tbe Milwaukee road a mile this tide of
Glenn Park, and which was due to crim
inal carelessness on the part of the engi
neer of tbe C, M. & St. P. train. Tbe
C. R. I. ft P. and C..M. ft St. P. tracks
are parallel for a distance of twen
ty miles this side of Council Bluffs,
ana n is customary to race over
this part of the track. Last night the
Milwaukee engineer bad orden to pass
fast freight at Glenn Park, which on the
Rock Island track is Glendale. On reach'
log that point tbe Rock Island train,
with which tbe Milwaukee was racing on
tbla occasion, passed a freight which
stood on the siding. The Rock Island
waa about five lengths ahead of the Mil
waukee, and the engineer on the latter
train it ia supposed forgot bis orden
and dashed on at the rate of fifty milea
an hour after bis Rock Island rival, and
a mile out collided with tbe freight. The
racing engineer, James Pullen, was
killed; bis fireman escaped, aa did the
crew on tbe freight, but an Italian pas
senger was roasted alive and it is believed
othen lost their lives in the wreck.
The Rock Island train atopped and as
sisted in removing the wreck and then
came on east.
A Trip far tbe Preaa.
By invitation of President W. A.
Moore, of the Moline Central Electric
Slreet railway, a number of the represent
tatiyes of tbe press of Rock Island and
Moline made a trip over the Prospect
Park and Fairmount bracbea of the road
this morning in one of tbe magnificent
new electric can recently received by
the company from the Pullman Car com
pany, of Chicago. Afterward, through
the courtesy of President Moore, a din-.
ner was served in tbe McKinnie block
restaurant, and afterward an inspection
was made of the plant of tbe Merchants'
Electric Light company, where is also
located the power atationof tbe electric
line, and where all the workings were ex
plained by Mr. Scoville, of tbe Spngue
company, who also accompanied tbe
tourists on their ride, and added much to
the enjoyment of the occasion by hit in
telligent explanation of the system.
Can on the electric route now leave
suburban ends of tbe track every forty
minutes and tbe city end every twenty
minutes. This gives a car ud the hill aa
far aa Seventeenth avenue every twenty
minutes. There has been more or leas
trouble at tbe power nation, but the na
tion is now so well equipped with both
steam and water power that no annoying
delays may be expected. Tbe power at
present used to generate electricity for
the can ia ateam. There is plenty of
water power, and to spare; but be
fore it can be used satisfactorily some
improvements to regulate the current
must be put in. When a car carry
ing two 15-horse power moton catches
bold or leU loose of the trolley wire, it
makes a big difference with the current
and with tbe machinery which generates
it. When both can happen to do the
aame thing at tbe same time, it makes
double the difference. Thus, when both
the railway and the electric ligbu are run
by the same power, a great difference is
made in the lights whenever the cars
catch hold. This thing can be obviated.
a reporter was told, by proper current
regu.ators. At present they are obviated
by using steam for tbe railway dynamo.
and water power for tbe light dynamo.
It was a very pleasant trip and all were
lavish in their commendation of tbe en
terprise of tbe company and their praise
of the courteous manner of entertaining
the members of tbe press.
