Mrs. Peter Kerker, of Davenport,
whose death occurred yesterday morn
ing, was born in Bavaria Sept. 9, 1S23,
and was therefore in the 6Sth year of her
age. She came to America in 1835, and
on June 7, 1843, was married to Peter
Kerker in Peoria. From there Mr. and
Mrs. Kerker removed to Weston. Mo.,
and a second removal, to Davenport, was
made in 1S53; The 'husband died a year

Lira to the grave. Mrs. Kerker was the

Cornelius Breenahan died at the home
of his mother on Elm street at 3:30

always lived with his mother. The fun

The Democrat of this morning contains
the following notice of the death of H.
T. Wadsworth, of Davenport, and well
known in this city, at Salt Lake City yes
terday: A telegram was received by W. C.
Wadsworth Thursday to the effect that
his son, Harry T. Wadsworth, died at the
residence of J. C. Conklin at Salt Lke
City about 6 o'clock that morning.
The word was not unexpected by his
friends about the city, for it was general
ly known that the young man was very
low and had little if any Lope of recov
ery, and it was fully expected by his
father and relatives here and in Rock Isl
and. Harry T. Wadsworth was born in this
city 30 years ago. This place has always
been his home, and he had the acquain
tance of a very large number of citizens
here. He traveled considerably, making
a trip to Europe some time ago, and was a
bright young man, destined, his friends
hoped, for a long and useful career.
About a year ago, however, an ailment
of the throat appeared that made him
serious trouble. The case seemed to
baffle the physicians, steadily progressing
till finally, sometime ago, began to as
sume the form of consumption. About
the first of February last, he went to Salt
Lake City, hoping that the latitude and
dry air of that renowned region would
prove of benefit, but it seems the change
was made too late. At fire't be took np
his quarters at the Hotel Cullen. but
something over a weak ago, seeing that
the end could not be far off, Mr. Conk
ling, an old resident of this city, and a
firm mend of the young man and his
family, took him to his own home and
there he remained until he died. A short
time ago his mother left for hiB bedside
and was with him when be died.
Concerning the funeral arrangements
nothing is now known, but the remains
will undoubtedly be brought back to Dav
enport for interment, and further an-
I nouncement will b3 made.

The Xew Tomer.
The work of replacing the high tower
oyer the draw of Rock Island bridge with
a shorter and stronger one has been com
menced by the Western Uoioa Telegraph
company. Four large poles have been
erected, cue at each corner of the draw,
opening on the stationary portion of the
bridge. The 50 telegraph and telephone
wires now running across the bridge will
be temporarily and perhaps permanently
cabled and for the time being will be sus
pended from these poles, where they will
be high enough to permit the passage of
boats through the driw and at tbe same
time be out or line with the work of erect
ing the new tower. There are four elec
trie light and power wires now crossing
the bridge which will also have to be dis
posed of some way, but without cabling.
Twenty-six of the smaller wires belong
to the Western Union company and 24 to
the telephone company. They will be
twined into four cables, two for the wires
Of each company.
The necessity for the new tower arose
from the fact that the o'.d one was too
weak to hold more wires, and it is de
sired to swing 28 mare wires acrc33 the
bridge to accommodate the power and
light currents of the street car syndicate.
The new tower will be 15 feet shorter
than the old one and will be stronger
everyway. It will be little higher than
the other two towers on the bridge and
thus the strain from tbe wires will be
more uniform, whereas its height has
made it to bear tbe heaviest burden here
tofore. The work also contemplates the re
moval of the fixtures from the other - two
towers on the "bridge and their enlarge
ment to accommodate the additional
number of wires that have been men
tioned. Tbe Working Girls' dab of New York

SHOT TO KILL.

Woman Hhoots Hcrselr
and Her lloeband.
Another shooting affair, one much
more serious than that of a week ago. oc
curred at Le Claire this morning. About
a year ago. Miss Mary Kelly, formerly of
Le Claire, and later of Diveaport, was
married to Newton Xesbit of Le Claire,
since which time they have, to all appear
ances, lived happily together. Some do
mestic trouble, however, arose which
ended in Mrs. Nesbit shooting her hus
band and then shooting herself at about
8 o'clock this morning
Nesbit is a riverman and last year was
employed as fireman on tbe rafter. Still
water. During the past winter.however,
he had been attending bar in LeClaire.
His wife objected to this avocation, and
that is what led to the trouble. He per
sisted in the last named pursuit, though
h:s wife r epeatediy entreated him to give
it up, and at lan it came that every men
tion of the matter invov?d a quarrel.
One of these not iafrvq i ent unpleasant
occurrences took place at the breakfast
table this morning. In the course of the
anima'ed conversation. Nesbit wes
particularly offscsive and his wife sud
denly producing a r-.vjlver fired. The
ball struck Nesbit ia the back of the neck
and he fell unconscious The woman
then turned the revolver on herself and
fired twice. Tbe first bill entered two
inches below the ear and the second made
merely a tcalp wound. Neighbors at
tracted by the shooting rushed into the
house and found Ne6bit and his wife ly
ing on tbe floor, but the worn in was still
conscious. Nesbit, too, wis soon re
vived, buf he is in a precarious condhion,
and while the wi man my be saved, it is
not improbable that both wi;i die. Physi
cians have probed the wounds of both for
the bullets, but so far have failed of suc
cess in both cases.
Nesbit is 24 years of ge and was born
in Le Claire. His wife is about the came
age and had lived there in all about 12
HE KNEW HOW.
Hot When He Tried It On I Didn't
It whs not a kind thing to do, but he
was a young newspaper reporter, and
was, whether justly or xmjustly, regard
ed as "fresh." His city editor sent him
np to a meeting, and he started out a
little too eagerly, for he got the address
wrong. He was not so familiar with
New York as reporters generally are,
and by the time he got the address
straightened out and found the correct
one the meeting was over and he looked
only upon closed doors.
On the elevated train he met three
other reporters going down to their
offices, and he told them his dilemma.
"Oh, it's lucky you got on this train."
said one brother news gatherer. "The
very man you want to see is on this
train. There he sits down there in the
cross seat the old man with the um
brella and the gray beard."
"And he's a peculiar old chap,"' said a
second man. "You have to know how
to treat him. He's the president of the
society, yon know."
"You want to be diplomatic," put in
the third conspirator. "You've got to
let him see that yon know him. You
want to come np behind him, clap him
on the back a good, rousing whack,
you know and sar. 'Hello. Jenkins, old
boy, how did the little shindy come off
to-night:' Then he'll think he knows
yon and will tell yon the whole story."
"Be sure yon crack him on the back,"
"Oh, trus-t me," said the young report
er, with a confident smile. Down the
aisle he went, and reaching the "presi
dent" he gave Li in a terrific thump ou
the back. For one second there was an
awful calm. Then ' Jenkins, old boy,"
raised his umbrella and started for the
offender. It was a chase fur the door,
the young man yelling out his apologies,
the old man frantically brandishing his
umbrella and making violent whacks at
the head of his assailant. The younger
man reached the door in advance, how
ever, and darting throngh it slammed it
in the old man's face. As the wrathful
old gentleman was returning to his seat,
red and panting, three yonng men with
out consciences were letting out howls
of laughter. New York Tribune.
