COYNL'S CASE DISMISSED.
Judge Smith Quashes Both Indict
Technical Onmlon4 ilie Catine The
The-two indictments against W. L.
Coyne for subornation of perjury were
quashed by Judge Smith this morning
because of technical omissions they did
not state to what court tbey were return
able, and the words "in the year of our
Lord" were left out where they should
have appeared. Coyne, who has been under
bonds since the grand jury returned the
bills against him, was again
made a free man. It was re
ported this morning that the grand jury
would again be called together and in
structed to draw the indictment properly,
but this course, if considered at all, was
finally abandoned. The technical insuN
ficieccy of the indictment was argued be
fore Judge Smith yesterday afternoon and
this morning by J. T.Kenworthy, Coyne's
CDuntel, 8tate's Attorney Sturgeon ap
pearing in behalf ot the state, and
the court rendered his decision.
The jury in the esse of Clinton Wads
worth and Henry Bartley charged with
robbing a peddler's wagon near Cordova,
after beiDg out all night and until 10
o'clock this morcin?, returned a verdict
finding Wadsworth guilty as charged in
the indictment, and fixing bis punish
ment at one year in the penitentiary, and
Bartley not guilty.
Edward Yassens pleaded eui'ty to false
pretenses in the circuit court this morns
ine and was sentenced by Judge Smith to
three months in the county jail and pay
a fine of $1.
This afternoon the case of George Kelly
charged witti burglarizing Kerr's livery
stable, is being tried. M. M. Stureeon

Concerning the removal of the boat
building plant of the Iowa Iron works
from Dubuque to St. Louis, Capt. Isaac
Lutk, of the Diamond Jo line, said to a
St. L'juis reporter that the members of
tbe company were of the opinion that St.
Louis was a much more eligible point for
the location of tbe works than Dubuque,
and if a suitable location could be secured
there, both the iron and wood boat build
ing plants of tbe company would be re
moved to that city. Should this be con
summated, the general offices of the Dia
mond Jo line of boats would also be re
moved to St. Louis. Tbe Iowa Iron
works maintains the most extensive in
land iron boat building establishment in
the country, and it3 removal to St. Louis
would place the firm in position to get

Superintendent Wiilard, of the Thorn
son-Houston Electric company, lias been
busy for some time workiug on a tVvice
for setting the red line cars urd r tfce rail
road viaduct at Brooks' crossing. Th
cars go under all right now, but when
the trolley pole is bent to tbe wire under
the bridge it forms a bow, the center of
which strikes the wire and throws off the
current. To overcome this Mr. Willard's
plan is to attach a second wneel on tbe
pole whtre it bows and thus catch the
current until the cars are thr -ugh the
enclosure when the wheel at
the top of tbe pole will again
come into play. An experiment will be
made soon.and if it is satisfactory another
car will be put on that line and tfce elec
tric cars will run through to the Corn
Planter works in Moline. There is a
similar low bridge on one of the east loop
lines in Davenport and if Superintendent
Willard's plan works here, it will also be
adopted in Davenport.
The work of conveying the feed wires
to Davenport is well under way. Two of
them were taken over Wednesday morn
ing and the others wiil soon bs fiere.
Tbeie has been another controversy with
the Wesiern Union people, but the final
order has been received from Capt. Lyon
to go on with tbe woik. and it is being
proceeded with. The syndicate expects
to run an electric car on the Third street
line in Davenport one wetk from today,
and to make regular trips on tb t road
thereafter. Tne oiber lines will be started

Ear of Children.
Many children are troubled with ear
ache, followed by offensive discbarges
from tbe ear, to which no attention what
ever is paid. There is great danger of the
hearing being impaired by such neglect,
and even loss of life itself, as the inflam
mation, which causes th.s discbarge and
which is situated in tbe tympanic cavity,
is very liable to extend into the mastoid
cells and the cranial cavity, resulting fa

Sir. Vlntonn Hoepital BUI.
The fate of Representative Vinton's
measure to provide this part of Illinois
with an insane hospital is watched wi'h
great interest. Tbe following in the
Chicago News contains additional points:
'Mr. Vinton was considerably dis
gusted at the disposition of his bill to
create a northwestern hospital for the in
sane. It had been reported out of the
committee on state institutions fnvor-
ablv. but was unfortunately accompanied
by a minority report ana was referred to
tbe committee on appropriations .air
Vinton thought he saw misfortune in
this action of the house, because the
committee an appropriations had been
disposed to slash and cbop in a promis
cuous wav. Possibly, however, bis bill
mav have as (rood luck hereafter as did
the reformatory bill, and itis reasonable
to suppose that he will make proper ef
fort on tbe floor of tbe house to resusi
A Graceful Table Decoration.
A wom&n who cave a charming luncheon
had neither vases of cut glass nor silver in
which to arrange her flowers; she used in
their place a wide leghorn iiat liileU witti
damp moss. As it was to be a violet
luncheon sbe wired the flowers in small
bunches of ten or twelve, and set them in
irregular graceful fashion in the moss, and
tied the brim of tbe hat in toward tbe cen
ter with a wide band of lavender satin rib
bon made into a large bow at the side.
From beneath tbe Lat a narrow ribbon of
the same color was laid to the plate of each
guest, and terminated in a small, careless
looking bunch of violets. White and
creamy foods in salads aud soups, cakes
and creams look best when violets are
chosen for a luncheon. Tbe table damask
should be white or creamy, too, and wholly
without starch or bluing, so that it will
bang in graceful folds. ew York Post.
Don't Wash Tour Corset.
There is absolutely no economy in wash

$L35. Nearly a dozen different makes are
to be bad at this figure, and by arrange
ment with the firm at least six styles wiil
be sent home, so that the customer stands
a good chance of a fit. For $3.50 one can
get tbe finest quality of English lasting
finished with floss stitching and lace edg
ing and made with two side steels and 8
boned back. Allowing one year's wear at
least, this is only an outlay of a penny
day for a corset that will mold a poor
figure into a good form, brace a woman up
and add eighty per cent, to the lit of her
