THE RAILWAY RIGHTS.
A Petition in Circulation on Elev
enth Street. '
The Myndioate to Auk the Three
Block Heretofore Described
A rroposed Alteration.
The Davenport & Rock Island street
railway company has in circulation a pe
tition among the property holders facing
on Eleventh street between Seventh and
Fourth avenues, praying the council to
give to the syndicate the right to con
struct and maintain a street railway along
said. street. Under most circumstances
there could be no objection to granting
the petition without conditions other than
those which it is customary for the city
to reserve to protect its own rights and
those of its citizens, and as far as The
Argus is capable of judging from con
versation with different citizens. there can
be no objection in this case if the
street railway people will give satisfactory
assurance that no part of the original
line of the Milan road on Seventeenth
street and Seventh avenue is to be aban
doned. The belief heretofore expressed
in The Argus that it would be a mistake
to remove 13 blocks of track spoken of.
seems to be shared by all classes of peo
ple, and especially by our business men.
The suggestion, however, hs been
msde that if Managing Director Louder
back is desirous of making the Third ave
nue, Nineteenth street and Second ave
nue loop, he can very easily do it with
the track rights he now has by putting in
a curve and switch at Seyenteenth and
Third, at Third and Nineteenth and at
Second and Seventeenth. By this means
cars could turn east from Seventeenth at
Third avenue and run to Nineteenth
thence north to Second, around the
Harper bouse corner and west
to Seventeenth. This would sim
ply involve the abandoning of the one
block between First and Sacond avenues.
The opposition to Mr. Louderback's
hitherto announced plan should not be
construed to refer to his desire to make
a loop route of his Milan line by using
the syndidate tracks on Third avenue and
Nineteenth street and Second avenue, nor
does there appear to be a manifest objec
tion to his having the three blocks asked
for on Eleventh street. The public i
interested only in so far thatthe line on
Seventeenth street and Seventh avenue
shall be maintained, and the council can
only see that it is continued by having an
agreement withLouderback in giving him
any further privileges. The Argus' po
sition is as it has always been, to secure
all the additional railway advantages pos
sible, but to keep and protect, as far as
possible, all that the city already has.
Farmer" Bnrns in Town and Migns
Wiih comstock Davenport's tiall
"Farmer"' Burns, the Iowa champion,
arrived in the city yesterday and signed
the articles of agreement to wrestle Com-
stock, who has been so anxious to meet
him. It will he for $100 a side, catch as
catch can, two points down and will be
under the auspices of the Rock Island
Athletic club- It has not yet been de
cided just when the match will take place.
That will be settled by the club at its
meeting tonight, but it is very probable
that it will occur next Tuesday evening
as Burns cannot remain here much later
in the week. Since he wrestled here
last, the Iowa champion has been
on a tour in the east and has been very
successful in his matches. He is a much
smaller man than Comstock. standing five
feet 10 inches and when stripped tips the
bsam at 167 pounds, whi'.e Comstock
stands about six feet and weighs 200
pounds. The coming match promises to
be one of unusual interest as Burns is
well known here and has many friends
who will "go broke on him," and Corn
stock, though he has been here but a
short time, seems to have gained the con
fidence of a number who say they will
back him against Burns.
Jim Collins, the well known runner,
has been in the city since yesterday eves
ning. He stopped here on his way east
from Nebraska, where he has been since
his return from Europe. It is under
stood he is arranging some handicap
races with some of our local sprinters.

One or fie X mono as Coyne Case on
Trial at Omaha Involve TVatimony
From 31 any Former Rork Islanders.
The Crangle-Maish case which is fami
liar to nearly everyone in Rock Island
and in which W. L. Coyne of this city is
probably the most interested party, and
out of which have grown a number of
criminal prosecutions involving that in
dividual, ha9 been occupying the atten
tion of the Omaha courts of late and a
number or ex-Rock Islanders have been
called to tell what they knew about
Coyne's reputation for truth and veracity.
The Bee speaks of the testimony of E.
H. Bowman, Jr., formerly circuit clerk of
Rock Island county, and now a resident
of Omaha, and continues:
In the evening an extra session was
held, and it was during this extra session
that things livened up, and it looked for
a time as though Mr. Coyne's reputation
would be considerably the worse of wear
before morning Coyne himself was put
upon the stand first, but his testimony
did not contain much of importance, ex
cept his denial of the truth of the deposi
tions of Henry Fluegcl, in which he ac
cused Coyne of having tried to buv his
J. J. Paris, an attorney who was for
merly a iesiiient of Rock Island and a
member of the firm of Parks & Pleasaut9,
now of Wichita, Kn.. was asked whether
the depositions th tt had been introduced
by liecjnr.iin rs Fluesrel'a were really
signed by Fluegel. He examined the
eiffQKture a moment and then said in a
Very decided way that the signature was
not FluegelV At this point Benjamin
interrupted I. N. Flicklinger, who was
doing the examining, and requested him
to produce the original depositions, that
they might compare writing. Fiicklinger
r p ed that the depositions were
ii the hands of J. L Haas of
Rock I -land, and that he would
not give them up. The questioning then
proceeded. Parks statea that he bad
known Coyne since 1872 and that hi3 gen
eral reputation for truth and veracity was
bad. In reply to the question what made
him think that the depositions above re
ferred to were not in the hand-writing of
Fluegel, he stated that the name was not
spelled correctly, and that Fieugel knew
enough to spell his own name. He said
he and Coyne were not friends; in fact,
they were not on speaking terms, and had
not been since shortly after they became
acquainted. He could tell the circum
stances that led up to the trouble between
them, but Benjamin was not anxious to
be enlightened on that point, and in a
short time Parks was allowed to step
J. K. Cooke, who has been deputy
county clerk at Rock Island, but is now
in the Swift packing house office in
Omftha, was then called to the stand. He
had known Coyne for eighteen years, and
had known him personally about ten
years. His general reputation tor truth
fulness and veracity was bad, and he
would not believe him under oath where
there wa9 any money at stake. Coyne had
been indicted 14 times for perjury,
felony and subornation of perjury, but
for some reason or other only one of these
cases had ever come to trial. In the
one instance he was tried and found guil
ty, but on an appeal to the supreme
court the decision or the lower court was
reversed, after which the case was dis
missed. On cross examination consider
able talk and back talk was indulged in
which ciused some amusement among
"Do you know anything from your own
personal knowledge about Coyne's repu
tation since you left Rock Island, or do
you form your opinion from what you
have already heard?" was asked by Ben
jamin. "We'.l," was the rep'.y, "I know what
the people in Rock Island have been say
ing about him for the last 10 years, and I
suppose his reputation is still lasting."
"But you didn't have any personal
"No, I know what he was up to a year
ago. and I have never had any reason to
think that he had mended his ways."
"Where have you obtained any infor
mation as to Coyne's actions since you left
"I received a letter from my father
which spoke of him."
'What did it say of him?"
"It said that there was a probability
of a lot more indictments being returned
Several more questions were asked by
Benjamin for the purpose of tangling up
his witness, but the result of it all was to
show up his client in such an unfavor
able light that he at last gave up the
cross examination entirely.
Apropos of these same proceedings it
is interesting to note the filing of a pre
cipe in the office of the circuit clerk to
day for a suit for 525,000 against W. L.
Coyne. J. L. Haas is the plaintiff and
the suit is for libel. Messrs. W. H.
Gest and Adair Pleasants are attorneys
for Mr. Haas who bases his charge on
the allegations made by Coyne in a suit
brought some time since by Coyne against
Messrs. Haas, Guyer and Pleasants and
dismissed on a demurrer, but in which he
accused Mr. Haas of perjury of suborna
tion of perjury, fraud, etc. Mr. Haas
further charges Coyne with having made
accusations against him in the Omaha
case of having concocted evidence in said

the Central Presbyterian church ias:
night drew a large audience, and the en
tertainment, it need hardly be stated,
merited well the compliment extended
in this respect as well as the apprecia
tive disposition manifested. The various
selections by Mrs. Jones and her talented
family, including as they did, solos, duets
and concerts, were all hiehly enjoyed and
deservedly encored. Misses Eva Nor
mojle and May Freeman also contributed
their part as did Misse3 Belle Folsom and
May Culton. These were the musical
features, vocal and instrumental; richly
enjoyed also were the readings by Mrs.
Runcie the gifted elocutionist, of "The
Charity Fair" and the "Elf Child," the lat
ter in response to an encore, and "Miss
Maloney at the Dentists" by Mrs. Jones
which, too, was heartily encored.
