At Monday night's meeting of the Mo

cation was received:
The Woman's Christian Temperance
I'uion of Moline beg of you that no
licenses to sell intoxicating drinks be
graited by you the coming year. In lie
half of the Christian churches, also the
larj;e audience in Knowles hall who re
cently expressed their disapproval of the
lice nse system by a large majority rising
vote; in behalf of the darkened, desolate
homes, the aching hearts, suffering child,
hood, bewildered boyhood, tempted man
and womanhood, we ask this reasonable
thing of you. We ask you to use the

ords on this question records that you

blot, the slavery system; records that you

Moline, HI., April 21, 1890.
The petition was laid on the table by
unanimous vote, the mayor having stated
th it the prayer was out of order, inas
much as the saloons had already been

granted, the licenses could not be re

A PAINFUL ACCIDENT.

Wymaa Beardaley A X arrow Kn
Mr. Wyman Beardsley, son of Maj. J
M. Beardsley, and fireman on the C, B,
& Q. switch engine 364, of which L. V
Adams is engineer, met with a painful
accident and a narrow escape at 6 o'clock
last evening. The engine bad returned
from Moline and just south of the Bur
lington depot building Fireman Beards
ley jumped from the cab to turn a switch
in order that the engine might be run into
the round house. Having turned the
switch he attempted to mount the step
on the tender of the engine as it backed
up, but his left foot caught in the frog
and was held firmly, and before he could
give the alarm to the engineer the engine
bad struck it and snapped both bones
above the ankle. The shoe was pulled
from the foot in the exertion to extricate
the member from its perilous position and
remained fast in the frog. Eog'neer
Adams stopped the engine in time to
avert further disaster and the unfortunate
fireman was soon conveyed to bis home
on Twenty-second street, where Drs.
Truesdale and Plummer reduced the frac
ture. It was a marvelous escape from
something more serious, as had the engine
been moving faster than it was the young
fireman would beyond question have met
a fate too horrible to contemplate.
Mr. Beardsley is an industrious and
sober young man and bis misfortune is
deeply regretted by all who know him.

Wm. B. Wbiffiii, who died last Saturday
at the asylum in Kankakee. The de
ceased was a veteran printer and jour
nalist, and the Peoria Journal prints the
following biagrapbical sketch: .
Mr. Wbiffla was born in Bedford. Bed
fordshire. Eng., Oct. 20, 1823. and came
to this country when sixteen years of
age, locating in Ulica, N. Y. In 1850 be
entered a printing establishment in that
city; in 1852 he went to Chicago where
he worked on the' Prairie Farmer. One
of the bands in the office was Ben Sea
ton, now of the Prairie CAirf .Cambridge,
Henry county, III. Another chum was
Gersbom Martin, now of Galesbure.
Mr. Whiffln married in Chicago Miss Isa
bella Brownfleld, by whom he had one
daughter, the late Ella Whiffio, who died
in this city a few years ago. Mrs. Whiffln
died in Peoria while Mr. Whiffln was lo
cal editor of the Union, then published
by Geo. W. Raney. In 1859 Mr. Whiffln
married Hattie, the daughter of G. W.
Smith, of this city. Soon after that he
moved to Metamora and took
charge of the Sentinel, and was
also county treasurer. After living
there some years he came back to Peoria
and set up aiob office. Then he re
moved to Lacon and established the Mar
shall county Democrat which he conduct
ed up to the time of bis death. He
leaves a wife and two sons, W. T. and
Lee B. He hss a brother, U. M. Whif
fln, of Rock Island, and three sisters
Mrs. E. A. Thurlow, of Peoria, Mrs. A.
Thurlow, of Seattle, Washington, and
Mrs. Hanna M. Poil. Mr. Whiffln was in
attendance upon the editors' reunion in
this city on February 22, and was one of
the four men who had taken part in the
organization a uaarler of a century be
fore. He seemed to be in vigorous
health, and laughingly remarked to us
that be believ i he was good for a quar
ter of a century more, and be certainly
looked it. He was a vigorous build, very
strong and muEcular. And yet within a
month he was stricken down almost in s
moment with a fatal disease, and now has
been called to his long home.
