Mrs. Isabella Wright, mother of S. R.
Wright and Mrs. Henry Carse, of this
city, died at Holstein, Iowa, Sunday eve
ning at 10 o'clock. agei 70 years.
The remains arrived in this city this
morning and were taken to the residence
of Henry Carse on Fourth avenue, from
which place the funeral will be held to
morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock. Mrs.
William Sige, of Omaha, another daugh
ter, who accompanied the remains of Ler
mothci;here from Iowa, notified the rela
tives in this city of her death, but the
messages were not received here. Yester
day, however, a message was received
from Mrs. Sge, saying that she would
"arrive with mother tomorrow,"
and the relatives here having no intima
tion of Mrs. Wright's death, naturally
misinterpreted the meaning of the mes
sage and thinking she was merely com
ing on a visit, they were pleased over the
prospects of seeing her. and the grand
children were particularly elated over the
prospect of a visit from grandma, whom
they had not seen for some time. Joy
was turned to poignant grief when they
learned the astounding fact of her death.
The remains were conveyed to the res
Uence of Henry Carse, n Fourth avenue,
where had been prepared a welcome to the
aged lady where once she lived, but which
proved to be a sad home-coming ia all
that the term imjlies.
Mr. Wright died in Rock Island IS
months ago, and the surviving cbi'dren
are: Charles, of Davenport, Mrs. Henry
Carse, of this city, Mrs. Jennie Sge. of

THE SCHOOL ELECTION.

It will be remembered that at a recent
council meeting a resolution was present
el by Aid. Corken and adopteJ, provicK
ing that at the school election next month
thiri be more than one polling place in
stead of simply one 89 hs bscn the cus
tom in passed years. The idea of concen
trating the place of balloting has led to
such scandalous abuses in recent years es
pecially a year ago, wh;n one man man
ipulated the entire vote and succeeded by
the introduction of non-resident voters in
defeating the popular will of the people,
that the idea was apparent to all
friends of our public schools
that some method should be
adopted to protect the purity of the ballot
in school elections. Thus came Aid.

cretionary with the mayor to designate as
many voting places as be might thick
Mr. McConochie was seen on the sub

to appoint three voting places, believing
tbey would be enough. The mayor also
said tbeie was a mistaken idea as to the
time of the election, that it will be held

that a horrible murder had been commit

the disturbance bad been caused by three

A Clever Idea.
"Inasmuch as the council has decided
to improve Seventh avenue east of Elm
street, I have a suggestion to make which
would greatly improve the appearance of
the thoroughfare," said a citizen to an
Argus reporter last evening. "That is to
boulevard that portion east of Thirty
eighth at least, and running through Edge
wood park, and not only have grass
plats on each side, but through the mid
dle of the car tracks, thus leaving iust
enough roadway for carriages and mak
ing a most beautiful street. Tbey have
such a plan in Washington, D. C where
there are electric roads, and I believe it
would do nicely bere. It would reduce

was fully attended and the house was

"Iam waitlnjr for a bunco sharp who
ought to have got into town yesterday or
the day lx-fore from New Orleans," said a
detective from police headquarters, who
ptood in a doorway on Broadway, near
Twenty-sixth street. "He has been out of
town for nearly two years, but he had to
6kip Xew Orleans on account of a heavy
job he put up on a farmer down there.
We've got to get him and send him back.
I never saw him with whiskers, but I'm
told he wore 'em when he started north.
You see I missed him at the depot. He
didn't come in on the express. Probably
got off at the last stop and came in on a
local. I think he'll be along here some
"That's a peculiarity of the crook in this
city. He adores New York to an extent
that leads him into taking all sorts of
risks, and he simply can't stay away from
this strip of land right along here on Broad
way. Now, there are certain dives all
through this locality where crooks are in
the habit of congregating, but when one of
them is wanted he will avoid these places,
knowing that they are the first spots ex
amined by the police. They are like
ostriches, however, that stick their heads
into the sand about Broadway and come
out here in the boldest way, thinking them
selves lost ia the crowd.
"I was on a burglary case a few months
ago, and was looking for a man who was
good for fifteen years when 1 once got the
iron on him. Well, I did the downtown

set eyes on thecliap. I went into dens
where anywhere from ten to twenty jail
birds would be, but my man never showed
"I was beginning to get tired, when one
day I thought I would walk up Broadway.
I was going by the St. James hotel when I
saw a quiet looking, well dressed man with
gray mustache and beard standing on the
steps. His high bridged nose and small
eyes were familiar. I made as though I
was going to enter the hotel, and got close
enough to look at his right cheek. There
was the mark I was looking for a long
scar just under the beard where it grew
thin on the cheek.
"I took my man without any more ado,
and he said when we were on the way to
headquarters that Broadway had always
got him into trouble. It really is the most
fascinating street in the world, you know,
and I don't blame the lxys for sticking to
it. even if it does play them false. Hello!
There's Mr. Bunko. I'll have to lie ex
cused. All the way fruni Xew Orleans,
and on Broadway the fir-t day."'
Tlie detective sterijifd from the doorway,
walked tip behind a young man with a

shoulder slipped a pair uf handcuffs on
him, and before a crowd could gat her had
