Hi lrrn'A Promotion.
According to later reports it is John
Eilleen who has been elected general su
perintendent of the Diamond Jo line of
steamers, instead of F. A. Bill, as stated
yesterday. If this be true the promotion
is a well merited one. Killeen com
menced at the lowest round of steamboat
life as a deck sweep and through his
indefatigable energy and industry he has
climbed to the highest place of responsi
bility. Mr. Killeen's duties as superin
tendent will not interfere with his posi
tion as master of the flagship, Pittsburg.
At the annual meeting of the Diamond
Jo line of steamers, held at McGregor
on "Wednesday, E. M. Dickey
John Killen and Fred A, Bill, of Dubu
que, were elected directors. E. M. Dickey
was elected president and Fred A. Bill
secretary and treasurer . The following
wire elected general officers: John Kil

superintendent and general agent at St.

soon as the season opens and will be

E. M. Dickey has removed with his

A MerioBM Accident.
Frank Mooney, a young man employd
by Geo. Lukens. of South Rock Island,
met with a serious accident in Moline
yesterday morning, being thrown from a
buggy near Williams, White & Co's
blacksmith shop. The Dispatch says
that Dr. Wessel and the police .were
notified by telephone. When they ars
rived he was beginning to regain con
sciousness, and he was taken in the
patrol wagon to the police station.
Mooney complained of pain in the back
or the head, where it had struck the
ground in his fall. Dr. Wessel. on mak
ing an examination, found that there was
no fracture of the skull at that point, and
that he was suffering from concussion of
the brain. Bondages were applied and

temptM te ft hoot II r. '
A bold attempt to burglarize the home
of John M. S hofer who resides on Mo
line avenue n jar the line, wa9 made by
some unknown scoundrel on Thursday
night at about 11 o'clock. Mr. Schofer,
who is emplcytd at the Corn Planter
works in Mo'.ine, has been kept away
ftOm tome tho past few evenings by the
extra rush of work at the shops, and on
Thursday eyeaing was kept later than
usual, leaving no one in the house but
Mrs. Schofer nd her sister who slept in
adjoining rocms in the second story
Not feeling very well, Mrs. Schofer had
retired at an early hour, leaying the
kitchen door unlocked and a light burn
ing in her room for her husband's re
turn. At abcut 11 o'clock she- awoke
and was terrified at seeing a strange man
in her room. Greatly startled at this
sudden intrusion, she called her husband's
given name, "John," and sprang from the
bed, but the vi Han had siezed her bus
band's revolver which Had been laying on a
dressing case aid pointing it at the ter
rifled woman, he deliberately pulled
the trigger. The bullet, which was from a
32 calibre revolver, barely missed her head
and passing through a door which was
standing open near the head of the bed,
lodged in the nail near by. He then
turned and fl?d from the house, taking
with him the revolver belonging to Mr
Schofer. The noise and shot startled
Mrs. Schofer's s.ster. who was in the ad
joining room, and the ladies then called
in a neighbor who remained until Mr.
Schofei's return a few minutes after.
The burglar was evidently some one well
acquainted with the surroundings and
was bent on obtaining money, perhaps
knowing that Mr. Schofer had received
his wages the day before. He had ran
sacked some drapers down stairs before
going to the rooms above, but nothing
has been missed but the revolver.
The Rock Islatd police were not noti
fied, but this morning obtained a descrip
tion from Mrs Schofer and are now
searching for the offender. Mrs. Scho
fer describes the man as a tall, heavy,
dark complected man, with dark mus
tache, and thinks that she would be able
to recognize him if she should see him
agin, the fright '.ending to impress him
on her memory.
F. G. McCoy was bound over to the
circuit court in bonds of $100 on a charge
of larceny by Justice Wivill this morning.
On complaint of J. C. Rasmussen, this
morning Justice Wivill fined Max Tax

run at large.
Police Officer Glass seems to be in no
end of trouble. What with his recent
episode in the biIodq oa Seventeenth
street and First avenne, and the loss of
his club yesterday morning, it would
seem that he hid trouble enough, but bis
afflictions seem to multiply instead of di
minish. Early this morning he had a
serious dissertation with a calored citi -zen,
which proved quite amusing to spec
tators. As one small boy termed it "it
wae great fun to see the copper chewing
the rag with the cc lored man."
