The upper end has setsation!
Today Coroner Hawes is being enter
tained by the f'enizeng of Fort Byron and
vicinity and is pursuing an investigation
which may develop soxethingof a nature
quite out of the ordintry, but the facts,
no matter what they niy be, are attended
by a circumstance highly romantic
Lest evening about 7 o'clock Ban Was-
sell, living in the upp r end of Poit By
ron, rushed breathlessly into a store ia
that place and told a story of how a
phastly discovery bad been made by two
women in a corn field in what is known
as Canon about a mile above Port
An Argcs reporter was present at the
time, being at that particular moment
awaiting a train on his return from the
fair. Hurrying into a buggy the reporter
and Mr. Wassell drova to the home of
Mrs. Victor Johnson, who related a
strange story to ti e reporter, which,
while it my seem peculiar, is neverthe
less true, ana can ne vouched lor by a
number of people.
mrs. Johnson's strange dream
On Thursday niht Mrs. Johnson
dreamed that a young lady in the neigh
borhood had given b rib to a male child
and bad deliberately put her offspring to
death and buried it beneath a pile of brush
in a neighboring con. field, and that Mrs.
Johnson in company with a Mrs. Larson,
a neighbor, had gone to the spot and
found the child and returned it to its
On Friday Mrs. Johnson's d reum of
the previous night so weighed upon her
mind that she called on Mrs. Larson, to
whom she related an account of her sin
gular dream. The , latter was also
amazed as the girl spoken of in the
d:eum as being the riother of tbe child
had called on Mrs. Larson shortly before
and appeared greatly excited, and when
questioned regarding her strange actions
she became angry ai d left the bouse, say
ing as she did that I Irs. Larson was too
ready to suspect her of wrong doing.
.Vra. Lir3on noticed that when the
g;rl alludtd toltft her (Mrs. L arson V)
house she went directly home, and short
ly afterward was set-n going up the river
in a skiff in company with another fe
male, which is supposed to have been
tbe latter's sister. All these facts being
linked together, the two women conclud
ed to make an investigation of the field
in which Mrs. Johnson dream'
ed they had found the infant
and accordingly the two proceeded to the
spot and undernea h a pile of brush in
the corner of tie feld sure enough they
ACTUALLY FOl SO THE REMAIXS
cf a male infant wtich they Quickly cov
ered up, being afraid to inform anyone
until the return of their husbands from
work in the evenirg, to whom they re'
lated theatrange circumstances surround
ing tbe case.
Tbe reporter in company with Beveral
witnesses was then taken by Mrs. John'
son through a dense wood to a lonely
spot in a corn field where she pointed out
the spot where th! infant lay. It was
found about six inches under ground and
was nude except k handkerchief, which
Was wrapped about the head. Tbe
ladies sta'e that t'u: child was dead when
first found by them and it was apparently
not more thin a day or two old.
Coroner Ilawes was immediately noti
fied and the body in the meantime was
tiken in charge by Undertaker Wendt.
THE INQUEST IS TROGKES3.
A jnry was empanelled this morning
consisting of Jimes J. Li Velle, foreman
L. S. Pearsall. D A. Malarkey. Mark
Ashdown and A. H. Wendt. and a num
ber of witnesses were examined. Dr. W.
S. Block made a post mortem examfha
tion and reported that the infant had
bten born alive, and in his opinion had
come to its death by being smothered.
The inquest is still in progress and will
probably be finit-hd late tonight. The
testimony ixplicutes one Lena Dum
strandt, the youtg woman whom Mrs.
Johnson had a premonition of in the

SEEKING LEGAL SEPAKATIOM
Tbo Flattie,. l.vorrn case la the Cir
cuit Conrt-Char-ieB and conater
Charaea-The Unelier If a mace Matt.
The sensational trial at the present
term of the circuit court is furnished in
the divorce case of Cora M. F.ndley
against Eli Findley called for hearing yes
terday afternoon. The charges and
counter charges involve about all the
statutory grounds except desertion, con
sisting of hibitual drunkenness, extreme
and repeated cruelty, infidelity, and what
not and the usual racy, salacious and
sensational details are to be expected.
I ce complainant is a rather prepos
sessing young lady of 23 years, formerly
Miss Cora Griffin. The defendant for a
number of years until these troubles cul
minated, was engineer at the Moline
Mailable Iron company and is said to be
a hard workir.g.iadustrious nun. W. A.
Meese represents Mrs. Findley while
Maj. Beardsley and J. T. Kenworthy are
the defendant's solicitors.
Though Mr. Meese disavowing any in
tention to that end, the appearance of the
complainant while being carried into the
court room by four baliffs and reclining
in a chair with her foot bandaged and
resting on another chair, tended to give
somewhat of a dramatic effect to the
scene and ws calculated to create con
siderable sympathy with the pury as well
as tee spectators. This effect was bright-
entd'by the fact, apparent to everyone.
that the complainant was not shamming,
but was really suffering from a severe
attack of icflimmatory rheumatism.
After the usual preliminary skirmish
ing in securing a jury, which is com
posed of Alvin Farber, John Loding,
John Lewis, Henry Blakesley, Fred Jenk
ins and C. C. Studley of the regular
panel and William Bundle, M. A. Gould,
John Cascaden, Otto Grotjan. W. L.
Nichols and Gjorge Parks, tailsmen, the
opening speeches were made by Mr.
Meese and Major Beardsley for their re
spective clients. The complainant was
then called to the stand, and after being
examined in chief and partially on cross
examination, the case was adjourned un
til Mondiy morning.
Mrs. Findley testiSed in brief that she
was m air itd to the defendant on the 27th
day of May, 1S86. and that there was ore
child born to them; that prior to her mar
riage she was a type-setter earning f 9 to
12 per week; that they lived in Moline
about four years on Fifth street between
Third and Fourth avenue; that defen
dant worked as engineer at the Moline
Malleable Iron company and lost very lit
tle time; that his habits of drinking were
bad, be often got drunk and came home
and abused her, that he bad a habit of
going out nights and remaining to 12, 1,
2 and sometimes all night; that on
three times that she can fix definitely
he choked ber, and on two occasions
BtrucK her; that upon numerous
other occasions be struck her, but
she cannot fix the time or place, that he
pointed a revolver at bar and threatened
to kill her; that before leaying ber on
May 21, 1S91, he broke up the furniture,
and aleo threatened to kill her; that when
drunk be cursed and Bwore at witness
and called her vulgar names in tbe pres'
ence of their little giil; that he never
accused her of or intimated to witness
that she was guilty of any unfaithfulness
Upon cross examination nn new facts
were elicited except that the little girl
(who is the bone of contention in tbe
case) was born Aug. 30, after the mar
riage. There are a large number of witnessess
in this case, and the prospects are that
the trial will occupy several days of next
The jury ia the case of Mueller vs. the
Rock Island road returned a verdict for
