Aa Mrs. Part ngton sajs, "there's noth
ing like a trial of the domestic infaciliiies
of people to d it tract tbe attention ol the
pub'.ic." This is certainly being verified
in the divorce case of Cora M. Findley
against Eli R. Findley, the trial of which
was resumed in the circuit court yester
day afternoon .
Te gods and little fishes; how hot it
wast f And the teat was not tempered by
the long, tediom and repetitious cross
examination of tbe complainant which
occupied the bulk of tbe afternoon ses
sion. The major tried his best to break
the force of her testimony or involve her
in some glaring contradictions, but she
maintained substantially the same story
that tbe told in chief. Tbe usual
amount of slush was injected into the ex
amination, the sole purpose being to
cater to the depraved taste of the large
audience who seemed to cloat over a little
filth or a double entendre as a precious
Briefly stated Mrs. Findiey testified to
the fact that her husband was in the habit
of getting drun't and abusing her, and
also that on three occasions he choked
her and at one time he struck her.
As to bis unfaithfulness she knew noth
ing except that he stayed away from
home nights, went to tbe neighboring
village, across tt e river, and claimed to
know sporting women there, and was re
portei to he that kind of a man. She was
still suffering f Dm the attack of inflam
matory rheum a ism mentioned in our
last report, bad to be carried into court
and reclined while testifying. The de
fense claimed tb.it this is mere shamming
and characterize i her sickness as a fraud
enacted for its effect upon the jury.
Mis Jane Gr tfio. the mother of tbe
complainant, was the next witness. Her
testimony was ir brief, that Mr. Findley
was in tbe habit of staying out nights and
coming borne drunk, and that when drunk
be was mean anil ugly to his wife. She
detailed particularly tbe trouble culrain
aiing in the sepiration and said it was
ciusc.1 by bis ducking, tbat he never
accused his wife of unfaithfulness, but
said she was keeping company with
women who were putting bis wife up to
boss or run bim and he wasn't going to
he hos$t-d by any woman; tbat he was
going to leave bis wife; that witness said
for bim to po bene and think about it
and then if be concluded best to go, to
go q iietly; tbat lie then went home, and
upon her follow ng him there as she
agreed, she found be had smashed the
stoves, cbairs. dinbes fcnd other articles of
bnutithold furniture to smitbereenB.
While the exartiiration was in progress
court adjourned intil this morning.
A ter an hour's preliminary business
the court took c p tbe broken thread of
the case at about 10 o'clock this morn
ing. Tte niminaticn of Mrs. Griflin was
concluded in aboi l an hour, nothing of a
sensational character being devel
oped, and the ent re time occupied in the
recital of little family jus. It was as tedi
ous and uninteresting as a November cray.
Numerous conversations between the par
ties were state 1, many tf which bad no
bearing on the Iss le, but the burden of
them all was tbat if tbe defendant were
given tbe cbi:il he did not care what
steps were taken us to tbe divorce.
Mr. Kenwortby conducted tbe cross
examination and got tbe witness com
pletely befuddled. The points made were
tbat tbe bad onl.7 tetn Mr. Findley six
times in three yeura and of these times
only three when ha was "full" whereas in
chief she had said that she had seen him
at least 20 times a year. Also that
she had but a limited knowledge of any
acts of cruelty depending solely upon
statements made by;her daughter.
Dr. A- H.Arp was then called and said
tbat be was called to see the complainant
shortly after the attempted abduction of
the child oy Mr. Findley. th it she was
suffering from a fain in her chest and
arm but that upon examination no ribs
were broken . He said that be was called
to treat her last Thursday and found her
Buffering from inflammatory rheumatism,
and tbat it was impassible for her to walk
on her foot or bear any weight on it.

ALD. ADAMS RESIGNS.
The Hi vr.tlt Ward Kfprree.tative
Surrenders Hit. H alii the C.oidl
t'fcamb r Vnexpectrdij-.
It bas been known for some time that
Aid. J. C. Adams contemplated resign
ing his seat as m mber of the municipal
assembly from the Seventh ward in view
of the fact that be expects to spend most
of his time during the winter and spring
in Chicago, where he has arranged to
study law. But it was not expected tbat
bis resignation would come with tbe
abruptness with which it was presented
at last eight's council. meeting.'
A'd- Adams bad made a strong plea for
tbe improve sent of Seventh avenue east
of Elm street. An ordinance had been
presented for doing the work by special
assessment, in lieu of which Mr. Adams
offered a resolution that it be done by
general taxation, accompanying the same
with an earnest and able speech. The res
olution, however, was tabled, and a sub
sequent motion by Mr. Adams that the
city expend f 500 on the improvement
failed of passage, whi'e the special assess
ment ordinance was referred. Now. if
there is one thing for which Aid. Adams
has worked long and faithfully, it is the
improvement of Seventh avenue. Ithas
been his hope by day and his dream by
night. Lasrnigbt Mr. Adams expected
to see tbe realiz ition of his fondest antic
ipations. But it cime not. It was
on this account that Mr. Adams, follow
ing tbe example of the late illustrious
New York senator, on the impulse of tbe
moment resigned his seat, stating that it
was evident to him tbat tbe council was
prejudiced against tbe Seventh ward.
Tbe mayor advised tbe alderman to put
his resignation in writing, and he did it.
The alderman reiterates his opinion that
the council will not treat the Seventh
ward friendly and as he was sent to tbe
to accomplish certain things for the ward,
he believes it his duty to resign in failing
to do so.
Mr. Adams left with his family for Chi
cago at noon today.
The Akgcs thinks it would be wiser
for Mr. Adams to reconsider his resignas
tion undtr the present circumstances, and
if he sees the wisdom of offering it later on
for good reasoas.he would le ive the coun
cil under more pleasant conditions, than in
the fury of disappointment.
Frederick Arthur, son of Lafayette
Cameron and wife, died at his parents'
borne, 723 Sixth avenue, at S:10 o'clock
last evening of consumption, aged two
years. Tbe funeral occurred from his
parents' home this afternoon at 3:30
Sunday night at hu residence in Dav
enport occurred the death of Dr. P. F.

in Davenport 20 years. During his res
idence there he had made many warm
friends who will sincerely mourn bis
death . He leaves with bis wife, one son
Edward, a member of the firm of Staby.
Bereer & Snell. The funeral occurred
thi morning at 10 o'clock.
Asmus Nissen, for a number of years
in tbe employ of M. Scbnell of this city

fever, aged 83 years. Deceased was
a member of Hecker lodge Hi. I. O. O

day announcing the death at Benton

tbe city, having teen in the employ of
George VV. D Htrris, wnen the latter

The site for Rock Island's public build
ing has been selected.
The Warren lot at the southwest corner
of Second avenue and Sixteenth street is
Commissioner Avery's preference and the
Marshall-Ferguson property at the north
west corner of Third and Nineteenth is
second choice. This information is con
veyed by the following Washington tele

Either of the sites can be nronntvd for
This may be reasonablv exnected to
settle the question of location of Rock
Island's public building. O? course the
selection is bound to cause much gratifi
cation and no little disappointment.
This was expected. It is the natural
outcome of tverv location the govern
ment makes of a public building. It is
so in every city where a public building
is erected. It is not now probable that tbe
special comnfssion heretofore believed
ould be appointed will come to Rock
Island. The next step will no doubt be
tbe purchase of tbe favored property, and
tbe acceptance of plans.
While as above stated there will be
many disappointed, it is to be booed no
one in Rock Island will follow the very
bad example of disappointed property
holders a. ong the Hennepin canal route
and cause delay in actual construction by
stirring up a row with the government.
