A MYSTERIOUS TRAGEDY
The leldef Jnliu riatt la Mollae
strange Fxperlenee of a Roam,
That was a strange experience of
August Johnson, room-mate of Julius
Piatt, whose suicide in a Moline boarding
house Monday night was spoken of in
veBtetday's Akgxjs . Piatt was discovered
t'.ead on his bed with a hole In his fore
head from a 22-caliber revolver, which
was (Ueped in his right hand. The Dis-
l atch says, his body was first seen by
August Johnson, a carpenter, who was a
fellow boardir and occupied the same
room with Pratt, at about 6:30, when he
arose. The mai had evidently laid there
dead when Johnson went to bed at 11
o'clock that night, but was not noticed by
Johnson. Indeed it is said he had dnssed
and was about to leave the room this
n.orniog, before the ghostly siht aU
ti acted his attention. Plait was last seen
a ive at supper that evening about 0:30
o clock. He left the table before the others
d d. It is supposed that he went to his
room immediately afterward and seating
himself on the bed, fired the fatal shot
which took effect in the centre of his
forehead. Mr. Johnson occupied a bed
in the northeast corner of the room, while
that occupied by Piatt stands in the north.
wost corner. When Johnson went to
hi) room last night there was no light
burning, and he retired without procur
intone, frome say he had a "jig on.
Tl.is morning te did not awake until
6:;0 o'clock and he dressed hastily in or
der to co to work, without looking across
tbu room. Not hearing anything of Piatt
he turned as he was going out of the door
an 1 looking back saw Piatt lying on the
bed with his clothes on sr.d a revolver in
his right hand.
Concluding that something was wrong
he was frightened and battening down
sta rs notified Mr. Oberlander, the land
lord, of the circamstances.. M. Ofcer-
lan ler, after going to the room and observ
ing Piatt's position on the bed with the
reviver in his hand, a spot on bis fore-
heal and blood covering one eye and at
bis nose went to the Peal house and
telephoned for the police. Officer Messer
wet t to the place and after ascertaining
the situation of affairs, had the room
locked, and notified Coroner Hawes.
Piatt was a native of Germtinv and wss
about 40 years of age. He has resided in
Mol ne off and on for more than a dozen
years, and this last time for about a year
and a half. For the greater portion of
this latter time be has boarded at Ober
lander's. He has made that his home
keeling bis trunk there when employed
and boarding elsewhere. It was shown
that he was a single man, thouth he bad
been married and was divorced from his
wife who is married again and now living
in Chicago, He has no children. No
cause was shown for the suicide, and
none of the witnesses bad observed any
thing peculiar in his actions of 'ate
Piatt had beeu in the habit of frequently
sitting on bis bed in the evening reading
until be would go to sleep and fall back
ward on the bed, where he would sleep
through the night without undressing.
The body when found this morning was
in a s milar position, lying across the bed
with the feet banging down in front. On
the b d near the foot was piled several
pictures, a few small articles of under
clothing to the deceased, etc.
Son e 20 or 25 were present at the meet'
ing of Episcopalians in the Business asso'
ciation room, Saturday evening. An or
ganization was effected by the election of
John J.Ingram, chairman, and Mrs. C. J.
Cooper, secretary. A petition was pre
pared, addressed to Bishop Burgess, recit
ing tbf desire of tbe Episcopalians of Mo
line for the establishment of a congrega
tion here, and asking his consent thereto
This wis signed bv most of those present
at the rieetine, and a committee of 10, of
which Mrs. A. R. Bryant is chairman, was
appointed to circulate it for tbe purpose
of procuring the signatures of as many
others as possible.
An adjournment was had until next Sat
crday evening, when another meeting will
be held at tbe Business association room
to hear tbe report of the committee and to
take me h further action as may be deemed
advisab e. Moline Dispatch .
The t. Paul Globe says:
Considerable feeling has been created
among the lumbermen at Stillwa
ter and elsewhere along the St. Croix and
Mississippi by the action of a prominent
Clinton, lowa. lumberman, who has ma
terially teduced the prices of lumber. It
is said by some that he is desirous of sell
ing out, and has taken this step in order
to get toe Weyerhauser syndicate or gome
other wtaltby lumbering concern to buy
him out. A Uuincy, II!.. lumberman
stated ytsterday that as long as this state
of affaire existed be would follow tbe ex
ample of many other dealers, and pile his
lumber ii the yards rather tban comne'e
with tbe Clinton man. Although they do
not consider that be is injuring the mar
ket muct, they would like to see harmony

Tbe word has gone forth that the
scheme to run the track of the Milan
street railway straight up Eleventh street
to Fourth avenue, and thus save the ex
pense of relaying and mainttining 10
blocks of track is off. Mr. Loudtrback K
a generous soul, and when he learned
thai the people of Seventeenth street
wanted him to abide with them so tin
tliev could tax his road for paving tiie
thoroughfare from First to Seventh ave
nue, he said, "its a go btreet railway
magnates like to pay for permanent im
provements like brick paving. Union..
The Union teems to be dying harder
in the failure of the street railway moves
ment alluded to, than of all others which
had its advocacy, notwithstanding thit
it has become quite accustomed to re
verses in tbe matter of its street
car schemes. Of course "the street
railway magnates like to pay
for permanent improvements like
like brick paving" tbecheerful spirit with
which they have always met such public
spirited efforts both here and in Diven
port has amply demonstrated that fact
and there was no reason to believe they
would shirk a responsibility on a street
on which they already have rights near the
business put of town for the sake of
helping advance a few blocks out as far
as Eleventh street. But by tbe way,
what has become of that street railway
project on Eighteenth street, to which
about a year ago the morning paper gave
its enthusiastic and cordial endorsement?

such strong medicine," said tbe teamster
"You know John Oleson, of the Wauers

quired the druggist. "His baby, when
eighteen months old. got hold of a bottle
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and
drank tbe whole of it. Of course it made
tbe baby vomit very freely but did not
injure it in the least, and what Is more, it
cured the baby's cold." Tbe teamster

UNLIKE TEA & COITEE -
The claims of cocoa as a useful article of diet are steadily
winning recognition. Unlike tea and coffee, it is not only a
stimulant but a nourisher; and it has the great advantage of
leaving no narcotic oiTects. Hence it is adapted to general
use. The strong may take it with pleasure, and the weak
