The artesian well on the premises of
Mr. Geo. Wagner's Atlantic brewery is
now completed, as far as it is necessary
for all practical purposes to Irill it. The
well is a remarkable success and will
serve as a means of abundant wa'er sup
ply for all Mr. Wagner's purposes in the
future. The experiment wta made upon
the basis of County Superintendent J. II.
Southwell's opinion that it would be
praclicaMe and the result is certainly
very complimentary to that gentleman.
''The mouth of the well it about forty
feet above low water mark in the Minl

evening. "Its flow is thirty feet above
the mouth. Its depth is 1)63 feet and

about litHi gallons a minuta. The water
is clear and probably possesses some

Considerable excitement existed in the
lower end of Rock Island county and in
Muscatine Sunday, when it waa reported
that the body ot a dead man bad been
found on BurdeU'a island. The dead
man proved to be Albert Scbrimpf , a aon
of Antone Scbrimpf. While out hunting,
a man named Frank Karey, discovered
tbe body. At tbe aide was tbe left hand,
while beneath tbe body, which was lying
on its back, waa the right band with a
revolver grasped firmly in It. Tbe weap
on did Ita work well. In the forehead
was a frightful gash or openiag fully an
inch In diameter. But one of tbe cart
ridges bsd been discharged. There waa
one thing that could not be aolved, nor
baa It yet to the satisfaction of bia
friends. For a distance of fully one hun
dred yards distant from tbe body blood
could be traced, and here and
there were little pools of blood,
which would indicate that tbe deceased
had walked that distance before falling,
after he had ahot himaelf, but there is
one that off sett this. There was not the
slightest trace of blood on bis clothing,
and if be had walked thia distance after
committing the fatal deed it would
appear that his clothing would have
aome blood marks, especially when it is
taken into consideration that he was
found lying on his back. Just wben tbe
deed was done is not known, nor will it
ever be. He had left bis boarding place,
at John Wiggers' residence, Xo. 907 Lu
cas Grove road, near Muscatine, at about
1 80 on Saturday afternoon, and that was
the last seen ot him until Karey ran
across bim. He was out bunting and bis
dog obtained scent of the blood knd fol
lowed it up until he found tbe body, Mr. I
K. being at ita heels at the time, finding
the body as above described .
The Inquest was held in Muscatine
yesterday morning. A fact was devel
oped that offered a at quel that may have
led to the rash act. Aa ia aboye stated.
tbe deceased was the son of Antone
Scbrimpf, a laboring man, who, it seems,
last year on numerous occasions saw fit
to abuse and whip tbe boy, whoae health
was none the best. The Muscatine Jour
On the 1st ot last December be admin
istered unto his son a sound flogging, for
what cause we cannot aay, and caused
the boy to leave his home. The bo v. be
coming tired of this treatment, sought
refuge at the home of John Wigger?
here he secured a bearding place.
From Mr. W. wa clean tbe following
story, as well as tbe above: The boy was
penniless, and through the kindness of
John Kobes managed to pay for his board
until aprlng. wben Albert secured work
and began refunding tbe money and pay
ing his board by installments aa fast as be
could, his father, knowing be was at
work aougbt to garnishee his waees.
but Mr. Wiggers interposed with a
board bill, ao tbat the boy should not
be denied bia rights. As soon aa Mr.
S:brimpf thought the bov bad settled bis
board bill be again sought the garnishee
process, but was foiled. These attempts
to deprive tbe boy of even money eoougb
to live upon, especially wben he was sick
greater portion or tne time, so thor
oughly discouraged the boy that life was
not worth living. He had aawed a half
cord of wood on Saturday morning and
gave no intimation of hia iutentions; nor
were bis friends inclined to think be
would do aucb a thing, as be bad said
several timea be believed be would leave
town as bis father waa bothering bim so
much. Wben he failed to return on Sat
urday night or Sunday morning they be
gan suspicioning that he had ended his
existence, and were deeplv Dained to
learn yesterday that he bad put a bole

They were of ail agea.ranging from sev-
entecn to forty -five and over. Some of
the young girla, from all appearances, bad
not been leading the life they are in very
long. Most of the old women were mar
ried wben young and afterwards were de
aerted by their husbands, and, falling in
with women of ill repute, they, too, have
become disreputable. Suoh women are
to be pitied more than blamed. One of
the most notorious characters of the city
waa among those whom tbe bouse of de
tention sheltered last night. She was
married in Ireland years and years ago,
at the age of seventeen, and she and ber
hatband came to thia country. Shortly
after arriving here, be basely deserted

some disreputable girla and bas been on
the road to rain ever since. Another of
the young girls who waa there was the
young lady who waa enticed from St.
Paul to this city by a man named Vergbo
a lew weeka ago and then deserted. Sbe
is now with the notorious Maggie Delfs,
who is keeping one of tbe vilest dens of
sin in tbe city. Another woman who
waa captured waa one of tbe trio at
whom Mrs. Dimick, of Rock Island, ahot
wben sbe accidentally killed ber hus
band. There were few young girla who
scarcely knew wbat they were arrested
for. Tbey bad been approached on the
streets by disreputable women who in
tended to leave tbe city for a abort
time, and were finally urged to go and
keep house for them until they re
turned. One young girl of eighteen
years when tried for being an inmate of a
bouse of ill-tame atated tbat sbe did not
know what she was there for. Sbe was

who bad gone to Sterling, III . and tbe
police came in and arrested ber. She waa
not fined, bnt will be kept in the bouse
of detention for a few days, lectured and
then released. Most of tbe girls have
been floe looking at one time and many
of them belonging to good, respectable
families in other citiea. Several of them
were unable to pay their fines and a few
hackdrivers paid them for them. There
were several colored women in the lot
also. Half of them were girls 15 to 18
years of age.

Another serious accident was narrowly
averted at the Twenty fourth street
crossing last evening. The driver on one
of tbe bridge cars misinterpreted the sig
nal of the guards, who told him to stop,
and be drove rapidly over, and barely
missed collision with a locomotive which
was backing down. Tbe gates which.
by the, way, ought to be coming along
about now would have done away with
the danger, butjthe only absolute remedy
is the viaduct. In the inoantiiue. bowi
ever, bustle out the gates.

letter from Division Supt. E. M. Herr, of

ciplinary action thus taken, it is to be
hoped. will have Its effect not alone upon

priateness in coming from the kennel of
the hound." That was the thought of the
Altars when it first applied it to tbe
Union. The poor thing had better think
before it barks again.
Tbe Union attempts to intimate that
the Altars has sustained Mr. McEnlry's
course while city attorney in dismissing
tbe Rock Island cases against the bolting
butchers. The Arocs has done nothing
of tbe kind, nor does it do so now. But
inasmuch as the supreme court bas en
tirely dispose,! of the proceedings, and
handicapped the city in iu efforts to
guard the aanitary welfare of the people
with regard to meat Inspection, there is
no particular need of "crying over
spilled milk." Let the Arocs further
say for tbe Union' edification that it is
not "toadying" to Mr. McEolry nor any
one else. It Is The fact of the Union's
"toadying" and having been scared into
it at that, that has aroused tbe A Rat s'
contempt for the morning sheet.
