down by electric motor car No . 34, of
tbe red line, in charge of Motormon J.
A. Walsh and Conductor William Totten
In front of his parents' homa, shortly be
fore 1 o'clock this afternoon. He was
picked up and carried intj Ellis' coal
office by II. D. Folsom, wh) was passing
at the time, and from there was taken to
his home, corner Second avenue and
Thirteenth street, and pbytictans imme
diately summoned.' Drs. Cwter, Eyster,
Truesdale and Comeeys. of Philadelphia,
who is visiting in the city, arrived short
ly after, but tbe little fellow bad not suffi
ciently rallied from the shock to admit of
anything but a hasty examination. From
this it was shown that the light arm was
literally Ground to pieces as far up as the
shoulder ioint, while there were a num
ber of cuts about the scalp and hips, and
bruises all over the body. How serious
these injuries may prove could not be
determined at otce, but that they were
of a very grave nature the physicians at
once conceded. The poor boy will
surely lose his Tight arm. at id possibly his
It is not known exactly bow the acci
dent happened, as several playmates were
with the unfortunate boy at the time, in
cluding his little brother Charles Negus,
Jr. , and each tells a different story as to
bow it occurred. The nost probable,
however, is that of Arthur Evans, of
Brooklyn, Iowa, a ceusin f tbe injured
boy, who states that the toys had been
playing tag in the street and that Waldo
Negus was hanging on the back cf a dirt
wagon that was passing down the avenue
and when the wagon wa3 almost abreast
of tbe car, which was comiag up town.
he dropped off, and either started across
or fell in tront of the car.

pinions, told substantially tbe same
Motorneer Walsh stated that be was
looking ahead at tbe time but eaw no one
on tbe track. He had not .ced some chil
dren along the side of the track and when
he felt tbe jar of tbe car he thought they
bad thrown a brick or tometbicg on the
rail. He did not know then that his
motor had run over anyone until he

Conductor Totten, who was talking to
the motoneer at the time, did not see the
boy and the first he knew cf it, was when
he got off tbe car and went back. Tbe
motoneer also states that be had sounded
bis gong at tue corner, and was not runs
ning at more than ordinary speed, as he
stopped the car within a ft w feet when
be saw the man motion hici to stop.
In the opinion of Mr. Fclsom the ran
tjrman was cot to blame, although lie
pays that the latter was talking to the
conductor who was standing in tbe front
door of the car. As soon as it was known
to them Superintendents Hchnitger and
Hill hurried to the home of the boy and
offered any aseietance they might render.

The report tbat tbe business of the

mistake. Tbe receipts of vheat by river
yesterday were by far tbe largest of any
during tbe season. Tbe wheat from

has just begun moving, and a large in
crease of receipts in tbe n.tar future is
expected, which will continue for weeks,

Here occurred the first thing that
looked like an accident that coutd mar
the day's events. The finish for second
place was alraoft neck and neck between
Peoria Chief, Baker Boy and Almont.
The first horse broke into a run juat be
fore the wire was reached, and lo avoid
him after passing tbe wire the driver of
Baker Boy swerved slightly from bis
course. There was a crash of snapping
8 pokes, and Almoni H. was drawing an
overturned sulky. His driver jumped,
but his foot was caught in the lines and
he n as dmwa along the around for sev
eral yards. Taen the line broke and re
leased uiin, aud li-v arose to his feet with
an agility tbut showed him to be but lit
tie hurt. The driverless horse settled
down and tatids the turn, corniag back to
tbe gate to be caught.
Tbe free-for-all Racing race resulted as
follows. Go j's btst time beiug 2:191 in

In this race tbe firbt attempt to tcctre
was attended by a lamentable accident
which tbe Democrat detcrioes as fol
lows; Tbe pole horse driven by its owner,
C. A. Smith, of Chicago, and tbe favor
ite in the pools, swerved so as to bring
tne sulky ag&iDSt tlie raihcg and partial
ly overturn it. Tbe driver attempted to
leap to tbe ground, but a lurch of tbe
sulky sent him down between it and
tbe borse. An attempt to get c ut over
tbe shafts failed and he went beneath
the horse's heels. The reins, tbe ends
of which were fastened together, caught
bis foot, and for an eighth of a mile be
was dragged beneath the sulky. A cry
of horror rose from the crowd, and there
was but one opinion written upon all
countenances that if Smith escaped
dentil it wnultj be arointcl". But when bp
finally became, dibenianglod and was
picked np, be expressed himself as bein
"all right." He was hard!? that, iliougu.
Dick tjnu struck iuui iu the face una pou
sihly stepped upon him, but in the excite
ment of the moment be oid not feel that
be wts hurt. He was brought in to tbe
Kimball house last tvtnicc and although
a little ft: II from bis bruises was able to
move about, and unites iuterual injuries
develop he promises to be all right in a
wetk or two. Shortly after the accident
a suggestion that a collection be taken
up lor Smith's hneht wis put to the
crowd, and as a resu't Smith was pre
sented wi;h a hatfull cf money as he lay
near the stables upon a pile of straw.
A rnuut of the money showed $114.50
Dick C. contiuued ou his way around
the track after leaving bis driver in tbe
dust. Had tbe horse been left aione be
would huve stopped yoluntardy .f'er
running a little. .jiut nothing would do
but Uiit liit-u should iuu out and wave
their arras at him, yeii at htm, tnrow
sticks at him, and so on, until finally the
poor borse was so scared that he
wouldn't bave stopped had be run up
against a house. After making the cir
cle of the track six time Dick stopped
from sheer exhaustion and was secured.

It begins to look more as if there was
something coming out of the reported
street railway negotiations. Today W
Cole, an expert from Chicago, arrived to
look over the books of both tbe Daven-
j port & Rock Island and Davenport Cen
tral Electric road6 and the indications
point strongly to a consolidation. This
will, it is believed, affect Davenport more
than Rock Island, and possibl7 not Rock
Irfltiud at all . It is to be he pe l so, as
Rock Island is satisfied with its present
facilities, knows wbst the Chicago syndi
cite is doing and will do, and does not
desire a change.
Dr. Alien is in Chicago f course all
the s'.reet car officials here are reticent.
b. t to a man up in a balicon it would look
as if the Allen lines were to be assumed
by the syndicate. It will be the best
thing that ever struck Davenport if it is
