WHERE IS SUNLEY?
A School Janitor Under a Serious
DISAPPEARANCE F0M THE CITV.
Aern?d of a 51 o.t Terrible and Out
rageons Crime W. II. Manley
of Betiding K. 6,
Quite a sensation was created jester
day by Mrs. Spencer Bagley b wearing out
a warrant before Justice Cooke charging
Wm. H. Sunley, late janitor of the
No. 6 school building, with rape com
mitted upon her 13 year old daughter.
Jessie, who is somewhat large for her
age and of a timid disposition. The
crime is alleged to have been committed
last April and has bees continued at
various intervals until last December.
Mr. Sunley gave up his position as jani
tor at No. 6 Saturday and is among the
missing. The warrant was put into
the hands of Constable Martin yes-,
erday who failed to find him nor has he
been seen since.
Mr. Sunley is a married man and has a
daughter and son, the former of whom it
may be said, is striving to be, and is a
source of great benefit to the family.and
to whom it must be deep sorrow and
mortification, and it is indeed deplorable
that the family should be dragged in
to such a scandal.
Up to the present time Sunley has
failed to appear, and it is te'ieved he
left town Sunday morning, knowing that
he was to be prosecuted. In October
last the board of education held a special
meeting to consider charges of a
similar' nature preferred against Sunley
by the fathers of two girla who were in
attendence at his building. The meeting
lasted until after mid-night, the tnari
hearing all the testimony that could be
adduced on either side on the subjict and
in the end did not feel justified ia finding
Sunley guilty. At the time the parents
of the girls, who had made the complaint,
were ad?ised by members of the board to
institute criminal proceedings before a
justice of the peace and through the pro
cess of law the guilt or innocence co ..Id te
more clearly established But whila the
matter wa9 dropped, there wa9 a strong
feeling against Sunley which has been
revived with greater intensity through
these later proceeding. There is also
much dissatisfaction expressed that the
accused has been permitted to escape, as
the enormity of the crime charged is
such that the full penalty of the law
shouM be visited upon him. His flight,
of course, cannot be construed otherwise
than as an evidence of guiil in some de
gree, and in this view of the case, not on
ly the parents of public school children,
but the general public will not only be
shocked, but indignant that a man guilty
of an outrage should escape. The crime
charged strikes one as so terrible and
cowardly, the more it is considered, that
public feeling, which is already running
high, is likely to increase rather ahan to
abate until the accused is brought back
and the fullest investigation made and
the result known.

A CRUEL SHAME.
Two Moline Young Men Commit a
The X amen fTve Rroprrtable fcilrlw
Linked With ThetrMln a De
. Moline was in the tormoil of a great
sensation yesterday and a well founded
righteous indignation was in the expres
sion of all who heard of the matter, or dis
cussed the subject. The Journal of last
evenmg thus states the ciBe: ,
Two young men of this city. Charles
Wilson and Charles Gustus, both f whom
are well known, haye been instrumental
in branding with shame a couple of inno
cent young ladies, and their action can
not be too severely condemned. It is
bad enough that these young men of good
families, moving in the best society, one
or both of them members of church or
ganizations, should enter the slums of
Davenport for a general debauch, but
when upon arrest, they permit the numes
of two Moline girls, entirely innocent, to
be coupled with theirs in an act of dissi
pation and vice, is so revolting to ail hav
ing a proper regard for the ends of jus
tice, that to spare them would seem but
a hollow mockery.
Wilson, during the past four months,
has been a reporter on the Journal, and
were it pos ible, we would spare him and
his parents, but he was not willing to
spare those who are innocent, and by
should his name be withheld from priotT
Mr. Gustus was, until recently, connected
with the Republican in a similar capacity.
Both young men have departed for Min
neapolis. The story is is a long one. On Sunday
Wilson and Gustus went to Davenport
and put in the early part of the night at
the notorious assignation house of Biddy
McGee. Tbe place was pulled at 11
o'clock and all the inmates locked up,
Gustus and Wilson among the rest. On
Monday morning at 8 o'clock they were
arraigned for trial ia the police court.
The two girls who were arrested with
them, it is understood, are named Kin
yon, and that they formerly lived in Mo
line. One was the victim of aa alleged
abduction, some months as a railroad
man taking htr to St. Louis.
All the parties gave fictitious name
WiUod and Gustus appearing on the
court docket as Cbas. Williams and Chas.
Gretn. while the two girls assumed the
names of two respectable young ladies of
this city.- The Davenport police say the
young men handed in the names, and
are responsible for their use. They, at
least, were present, and if they did not
suggest the names, ai ilaimed, permitud
them to be used wi n intelligence enough
to understand the terrible wrong being
done. All were fined $10 and costs,
which was ptid and the (Hendt r re
leajed. At S:3J Wilson telephoned the
Journal that ho had business in R c'i IK
and. and coul I not he tion); till later. Hi
was then trAking due has e to j.et back
and cover up t U tracks
The nanus jriven, including those of
the innocent joung ladies, appeared in
the DavfnpArt papers, copies of which
reached MyTiue. The irj lry is an irre
parable one. The father of one of the
young ladies visited Davenport yesterday
and secured the following affidavit;

dramatic production, "Fabio Romani."
The most meritorious performance fiat
has been given in Pittsbu;h. for a long

Aiden Benedict's company, this week.
Large audiences witnessed b th repre

and the company fully able to render a
pleasing version of it. Walter Lawrence

while Miss Frances Field's Nina is the

true to nature, and plays the insidious
