Fatal Shooting of Thomas
The Hareeraaa Mewwaaiel Arreate

arlBie Captareel Other Worka ef
The A rocs of last eTenicg contained
mention of the probable fatnl shooting in
his owa house at McCauselind, twenty
miles north of Davenport, bv a burglar.of
Thomas McCaurlund, one of the best
known men in eastern Iowa and western
Illinois A Davenport Democrat' Gazette
representative visited the stene of the
shooting yesterday and ft and the resi
dents of the village up in ar ns and sure
rounding the house, whil searching
parties made up of farmers vho bad hui
ried in for milea around were scouring
the country for tbe burglars and vowing
speedy vengeance upon then, if captured.
The facts were shown in tliecase to be
not entirely dissimilar to tb sensational
Scbnell tragedy of Chicago. At about 2
o'clock yesterday morning, the night
prowler, who it was sutiseqm ntly learned
had a companion, entered th bouse, and
the one who did the shooting, removed
bis shoes and ascended to tbe room of Miss
McCausland, who give tbe ilarm to her
father, and ,lhe burglar Attempted to
escape; On the stairway b was over
hauled by Mr. McCausland. aod tbe
scoundrel tired three shots at his pur
surer, one of which entered tbe left
shoulder, striking tbe collar bone And
going downward, imbedding itself in the
region of the heart. The wounded man
returned the Ore. but without effect.
The burglars fled, .nd Sher ff Leonard,
of Davenport, started for tbt country in
pursuit. The would-be mi rdenr left
bis shoes on tbe inside of tl e boue in
his flight, and early yesterday morn
ing be was traced by bis bare
fot printing on the frosted
g-ounj and toward noon wa captured
eight miles away and just ovei the Clin
ton county line. He was still shoeless
and on being confronted wltL tbe evi
dence of bis guilt, made an open and
clean coofessiou. acknowlet!rintr the
burglary and tbe shooting by him and
implicating an accomplice. I t gave bis
name as John Webb, a man who bad
been employed as a section band on the
railroad in the neighborhood the past
The IteiiuxTiU-Gaiette of tbi 4 morning
contains the following additional facts
concerning the case:
Sheriff Leonard and Depu y Sheriff
Jones left Clinton at 5 o'clock Tuesday
afternoon in charge of the prisoner John
Webb. Tbey were advised be 'ore start
ing that lynching parties bad organized
to intercept them at tbe DeW tt bridge
and also at the lower bridge over the
Waptie. Sheriff Leonard was equal to
the enx reencT. Tbe crowd reached the
lower bridge at 8 o'clock; but tbe ofrirers
bv a fast drive got there an bo ir earlier.
They saw nothing to alarm tbem until
thev got to Princeton. Al this point tbe
sheriff saw Dr. John Knox wbo bad at
tended Mr. McCausland during the day
and urged him to return to MtCausland
station and obtain if possible an ante-
mortem statement from the dving man.
While at Princeton a crowd of men
gathered and acted in a threatening man
ner, but the sheriff made a sut den de
parture and by a rapid drive go; to Dav
enport al midnight and lodged Webb in
iSlieriff Leonard's stay in I avenport
was a short on. Within half an hour
be in company with Coroner Bnwden
started for tbe McCausland station to
pursue tbe search in the light of informa
tion they obtained from Web), who gave
them valuable pointers.
Tbe danger is not over. Public senti
ment in tbe community of "Md'ausland
alation and all through tbe nortl ern part
of the county is ripe for vengemce. If
an arrest is made and there is certainty of
the right party or parties, there vill be an
execution without legal form.
Soon after he bad fallen into t e hands
of tbe sheriff Webb made a coifesaion.
He admitted that he was in Mi inie Mr
Causland's room Tuesday morn Dg. He
admitted that shots were fl-ed. but
claimed that the shooting was dt ne by an
accomplice. Tbere is every reas in to be
lieve tbat Webb gave the name t f bis pal
and that he also disclosed tbe o K-rations
and deeds of a gang of villa ns with
headquarters in Chicago wbo rorlied the
railroad station at McCauxiaud of $V0 a
few days since, and also the pos ofrlce at
Martins, four miles west of there. More
of Ibis will ba known in a day or two.
Minnie McCausland, daughter of tbe
wounded man, made tbe followicg sensa
tional statement: "
It was between 1 snd 2 o'cl tck Ibis
morning wnen lua burglars ecurea me
bouse. There were two of them. I was
leeping np stairs in the southeast room.
Tbe first thing I remember was the bear
ing of footsteps in the adjoining room.
It was dark, but 1 beam A man alR inio
be middle of my room . I btga i calling
for papa as loudly as I could j 11. Tbe
man stood still for as much as l:ve min
utes, and then be went to tbe bjrcsu of
my bed and rubbed bis bands over tbe
top of it. He stood at Ibe edge oi tue oea
an instant and then put bis batid under
tbe pillow. I tried to gel out of ted, but
the man seized me by the nx-k and
bands. Tbe man told me to keep still
and tbal be wanted tbe combit ation to
tbe safe in the store wbere I stay during
tbe day. I told him that I did not know
it. lie wanted to know if I ovned tbe
business. He kept telling me to keep
quiet and said he would not Hurt me.
Tbe burglar told me mv father was not
in tbe bouse for be had aearcuid every
room. He said he wanted money and
must have it. I gave him $i in silver
taking it from under mypillcw. He
told me not to show up, meanitg not to
tell papa. I began crying and be again
said he would not hurt me. Tlere was
something white over tbe man's I cad and
be was strongly perfumed. ben tbe
man went out he atopped at the Joor and
did aomething to bis clotbes i nd then
went down stairs. He bid me goodnight
and told me to lie down and ;o sleep.
About tbia time I beard papa get
ting ud. raoa started aner me man
with bis revolver in bis nana sna over
look bim At the foot of tbe stai s. The
burglar said. "Wbo is this?" t.nd papa
answered. "Who are your At this sec
ond a shot was Bred by the buiglarand
bit bim. Papa fired two shots at tbe
burglars, for there were two of them wbo
weut out of tbe bouse and tiey tired
back two or three shots. Papa came up
stain moaning And saying be was shot.
Z then ran to tbe railroad station just a
little way off and gave the alarm.
Mr. McCausland was fifty yeais of age
ml une of thd most prominent stock
buyers and shippers in tbe state of Iowa,
being also well known in Kocl. Island
and other counties in Illinois. He was
interested in the Stock Exchange. For
a number of yean he was chaii man
the board of supervisors of Scott county.
At 3:30 this afternoon no further
arrests have been made, and .it. Mc
Causland is sinking rapidly.

Tbe Moline THpUeK of last evening,
commenting at length on tbe McKinnie
Root imbroglio in tbe Modern Woodmen
of America and McKinnie's sensational
accusations concerning Root after having
himself been deposed as head physician,
Tbe order began with one big flaw in
its laws. Besides regular subordinate
camps over nine or ten slates in the
northwest, a man could gain membership
in tbe order as a member of an imaginary
ramp. No. 26, known as "Independent
Camp," with headquarters at Fulion, and
all dues payable at tbe head offices.
Finally one member of this camp died, as
well as a man can die who his never
lived. Tbe imaginary man's dues bad
been paid by somebody for eight or ten
months. He (John Bernum) bad died in
Texas, and been buried in a certain cem
etery in Ohio. The $3,U00 insurance
money was paid to somebody. Tbe
proofs of death have since been investi
gated by McKinnie and others, and it is
found that all tbe signatures from both
Texas and Ohio are fraudulent. No such
men as the signers have ever lived In
any of the places named in either
state, and Ibe oldest inhabitants had
never beard of John Bernum. either
of bis life, death or burial, and affidavits
have been obtained tbat there is no such
cemetery as the one be was alleged to
ave been buried in, at or near tbe Ohio
town where bis burial was certified to
ave taken place. Clearly, Bernum was
wholly fictitious, and tbe payment of his
f 3.IMH) death claim a fraud on tbe order.
Dr. McKinnie simply sought to find out
li o bad thus defrauded the order, who
bad been paid this $3 tHNJ. Strange to say
he met with opposition, and obstacles
were thrown in bs way on every band.
Even to this day the men who paid out
the money have not moved toward ferret
ing out the fraud. Head Consul Root
aeems satisfied with the statement, that
be was swindled, and "paid out f3.000 to
widow who came to bim with properly
executed vouchers, approved by the man
lmself wbo now seeks to blacken tbe
reputation of the principal officer It
the principal officer bad turned in and
elped tbe bead physician to ferret out
tbe fraud and to recover, if possibi e, the
$3,000. the fight would have fallen
It would take columns to show bow
the order now happens to have an exec
utive council composed of men wbo were
not elected at tbe Des Moines convention
last November, because of some members
ithdrawing disgusted, aod others re-
gnmg and going their way with or
ithout explanation. Thus a council,
hicb has begun to be known in the or
der as the Hoot council, has been se
cured. This connctl, while not caring a
flj about the lost $3,000, is very solici
tous altout a certain large amount of
money which it alleges McKinnie has
overcharged for bis services. By tbe
way, too, the books were once examined
by a man named Morrison, and the doc
tor's accounts were declared correct. The
same "expert" was ordered a little later
to do the same work again, and the sec
ond time be discovered tbe alleged dis
itb its bead officers neglecting to in
vestigate an acknowledged fraud against
the order, and removing from office tbe
man who bas conducted the investigation
on his own account, tbe order would seem
compelled for its own safety and good
ame, to take some decisive action.
About the only course left is to call a
pecial meeting or the bead camp. We
nderstand tbal this action, tbougb ex
pensive, bas been decided on by a com
mittee of safety recently organized. Tbe
camps will be asked to vote on tbe ques
tion, and if one-third of tbem vote yea
the bead camp will beronveued under the
laws of tbe order.
There is certainly aomething very rot
ten somewhere in tbe councils of the head
camp and the one thousand members of
the order in tbe cities of Rock Island.
Moline and Dayenport and tbe adjacent
country will anxiously watch all proceed
ings that may reveal tbe guilt and place
it w here it belongs. Many a dollar of
bard earned money bas gone into this
society. prompted solely by the noble pur
pose of creating a fund for the benefit of
widows aud orphans in the eyent of tbe
death of the members, and it one cent of
this money bas been misappropriated or
fraudulently expended some one must
suffer, and suffer dearly for it.
A Chicago paper of today devotes two
columns to the alleged fraud and McKin
nie version. A meeting is to be held to
morrow night at Cedar Camp's ball, in
Davenport, at which J. C. Root aod
others will speak.

A very pretty home wedding was cele
brated at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H.
P. Hall The- Maples at 10 o'clock this
morning, Rev. R. F. Sweet, of Trinity
parish, conducting the beautiful form of
ceremony which united in sacred bonds
the lives of Mr. Charles C. Truesdale and
Miss Minnie J. Hull. Biehl's mandolin
orchestra played the grand wedding march
from Mendlessohn as the bridal pair en
tered tbe room, the bride appearing in an
exceedingly becoming travelling costume.
Mr. Hull gave his daughter away. Only
intimate relatives and very intimate
friends were present, those from out of
town being Messrs. Harry and William
Truesdale, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Oaskell
and Mr. and Mrs . Steel, of Minneapolis,
wbo came down by private car, and Mr.
Chas. Hall, of Omaha.
Immediately after the ceremony an
elaborate wedding breakfast was served,
which had been prepared by Erell &
Math, and tbe noon train bore the bappy
young couple on their wedding tour,
which is to last about ten days, and in
cludes a visit to Chicago, Minneapolis
and other points of interest and pleasure.

many magnificent presents, showing tbe

Daniel Sully appeared at Harper's thea
tre last evening in bis new pUy, "Daddy
Nolan," a comedy similar in many re
spects to the "Corner Grocery," and oth
er productions growing out of "Peck's
Bad Boy." Mr. Sully s reputation is too
well established to need any words of
encomium, aod bis support by the mem
bers of the company was unexceptionally
good throughout the entire performance.
Tbe audience was kept beat lily amused
from the time tbe curtain rose on tbe
first set until it went down upon the last

ferent comicalities was frequently testi
fied by roars of laughter.
Concerning Kiralfy's great production,
"Anliope," at the Burtis, Davenport, to
night and tomorrow night, a Philadel
phia exchange of recent date ssys:
Tbe Kiralfys never did botber them
selves much about plots in their produc
tions, but in "Antiope. which was pro
duced here for tbe first time last evening,
tbey seemed to have cared even less than
usual, and the Impression left on the
mind is that of a succession of lovelv
dances and brilliant pictures. There is
no doubt in tbe matter of grounding and
coloring tbe Kiralfys are masters, and
tbe result is shown in "Anliope" in a se
ries of stage pictures tbat pleases the eye
aod entrances tbe the vision. Everything
is made secondary to the spectacular ef
fects. The ballet, of course, is tbe feature.
and it is present in force in every act.
It is a good ballet as ballets go, and is
made up really and truly of young wo
men who dance well and pose cleverly .
Tbe marches were well arranged, and no
more brilliant spectacle bas been seen in
this kind of show than the march of tbe
Amszons in act 2d. It was a blaze of
color and a glitter of arms and armor tbat
dazzled tbe eye and called out deafening
Of the introduced features the most
notable and tbe most sensational was the
dancing of Carmencita, a pretty young
Spanish girl; ber dancing is wonderfully
agile, and called out a storm of applause.
Mr. Dan O'Leary, tbe popular advance
agent, arrived in Rock Island last even
ing and completed tbe preliminary ar
rangements for tbe engagement of Mrs.
George S. Knight at Harper's theatre next
Tuesday evening. Mrs. Knight has been
playing in St. Paul at tbe Newmarket
theatre, and the papers in that city apeak
n tbe highest terms of her plays and
company, she is presenting this season
tbe same line of musical comedies as tbat
which bas been rendered so popular by
Rosin a Yokes during tbe past few sem.
sons, and it is a pleasure to note tbat
Mrs. Knight has met with fully as great
success as has ber English competitor.
The entertainment will undoubtedly be
the best tbat win ba given in Rock Island
during tbe season and all who attend are
assured a very enioyable evening.

If tbe residents of Davenport, those
wbo own property here, those who work

faith enough in their own city to improve
tbe public streets and parks, bow can
they expect outside capital to seek ins

ers to put their money into Davenport

That is what Rock Island has been do
ing tbe past season, and it has been with
a large measure of success, too. Further
more. Rock Island is going to keep right
along on the road of progress without
balling or turning to tbe right or left.
Improved streets and sidewalks make the
