m it ted lhe r nae f Verdict er the
At the inquest which was hld over the
remains of the unnamed male child found
near Port Bjron under such strange cir
cumstances on Fiiday evening, Dr. W. S.
Block, who mtde the post mortem x
smiiation testified: It was a male infant
fall term, slight cjanusis. most marked
about the head and extremities with
slight scar by bruise on forehead and left
temporal rfgiocs, tupetfhial scar to right
of umbaiicui, incised wound over femoral
and first perforating artery at a depth of
onebalf an inch. The vesseli not in
jured, and that the wounds were made
after death; the abdomen soft and placid,
heart and liver normal. There being no
extreme marks of injury in the opinion of
witness, death was caused by suffocation
when from one half hour to 2 hours old.
The testimony before the jury bore out
the facta as outlined ia Saturday even
lag's Argus. No evidence was intro
duced to show that Lena Dun strandt was
the mother of the child, although circum
stances point strongly to her as such.
As she was known to be about to become
a mother and her sudden disappearance
on Friday together with the fact that she
was taken by her sister in a skiff to
Princeton, Iowa, a distance of four miles
for the purpose of taking the Verne Swain
when she could have bearded the boat at
Port Byron and saved a three mile ride
in the skiff.
Other circumstances point to the
that her sister Anna DumstraDdt,
guilty knowledge of her sister's
though when on the witness stand
pretended to know nothing of it
and also perjured herself br first
fUtly denying that i he had taken her sis
ter to Princeton in a boat, but when
overwhelmed with the testimony of four
other witnesses who had seen the pair
going up the river in a boat she finally
broke down and confessed that she had
rowed her sister to Princeton, bat still
insisted that she knew nothing concerning
her sister's condition. She also said af
terward that her sister intended to go to
Bloomicg'.on, where she has friends.
Mrs. Johanna Dumstraudt, mother of
the girl, Lna, Mrs. SimueUon, a neigh
bar, and Frank Billon, also a neighbor,
were eximintd as were Mrs. John Larson
and Mrs. Victor Jjhnson who first dis
covered the boJy, after which the jury
retired and shortly afterward returned a
verdict that the unnamed male infant
came to its death by suffocation at the
hands of parties unknown.
Aboat the Law Water 3latk.
Some of the reporters in river towns,
says the Dubuque Telegraph, have evi
dently forgotten or ere ignorant of the
fast that the "low water mark" so often
spoken of in river reports is fixed by gov
ernment survey and cannut be changed,
except by the government authorities,
even though the water go btlow the lowest
previously known record. This error is
seen in the following dispatch, printed in
the St. Louis Globe -Democrat:
The river report in future will road so
much above or below the low water matk
of 1691, instead of 1S64. as before. Late
last night the water in the channel stood
at 1 inches below the famous low water
mark of 1864 This has teen the subject
of much interesting discussion among
river men today, there being no change ia
the stage of the water. Capt Daniel Dav
idson, of the raf tboat Reindeer, one of the
oldest steamboatmen on the river, and
known from New Orleans to the head of
navigation, among other interesting
things has this to say regaiding the pres
ent condition of river affairs: "Steam
boatmen nave perfect record of the low
water of 1861 on a bowlder of the Keo
kuk rapids canal, called Mechanics'
rock. This mark is more reliable than
any other, such as the br'dge or any
other gauges, and there are a score of
riveimen who are guided almcst entirely
by the mark on Mechanics' rock, and it
can be absolutely rdied on when the
statement is made that the water is now
below that of 1861 and hereafter reports
will date from tbis year."

The Po.it al Tih,raph company has
now secured its t'uLl of way from Peoria
to Rork Island, tx. epUog through tbe
cily of Moline, where the ordinance was
laid over for one meeting, the compary
objecting to a clause providing for a
night office. The Dispatch says:
Rock I-land has passed the ordinance
giving the company ihe right of way
without requiring a night office, and it
would seem we should be as .liberal as
our neighbors. While guarding our own
interests, we should avoid asking any
thing that will tend to give as a reputa
tion for freezing out capital that seeks
investment here in any legitimate enter
prise. Rock Island has always enjoyed a repu
tation for encouraging outside capital.and
outside enterprises, and treating them
fairly, and it has never lost by so doing.
This city has been assured by tbe repre
sentatives of tbe company that a night
office will be provided. If this promise
is not carried out the company will be tbe
loser. Rock Iiland has been igaorel in
this matter of proper telegraphic facili
ties long enough, and it looks to tbe new
company for relief. It will be tbe suf
ferer if it fails to provide it.
