The interest in tbe Findley case ccutin
ties unabated allbouf h the testimony yes
terday and especially in the afternoon
was unsensational and dry, being priori
phlly directed to the charges of drnnken
ness and cruelty. That the defendant
was a drinking mm U abundantly proven,
bat as to whether he is an habitual drunk
ard tbe witnesses are not agreed.
Tbe charge of infidelity has been sus
tained by no direct proof as jet, and the
circumstances tend to show the facts are
Dawn Griffin, a si iter of the complain
ant, was the first witness after the noon
recess. She is 10 years old, and was
quite intimate at the Findley home, vis
iting there on an average of three times
a week and that half or the times that
she saw Mr. Findley on these occasions
he was "full." That he was irregular at
meals and stayed out nights. That she
was present on one occasion when he
choked his wife, ard witness screamed
and made him desist. That her sister
always treated Mr. Findley as a wife
Mary Andrews, of Rock Island, a half
sister of Mrs. Griffin, testified to several
occasions when Mr. Findley was drunk
and to conversations with him when he
told about being to dances with other
women and told witness not to tell his
wife. She admitted on crofs rximina
ticn that she had been divorced from her
first hueband, a Mr. Davis, about two
Frank Thomas and Emily Thomas,
nest door neighbors to the Ficdlej's,

housekeeper and prepared tbe meals on
lime, but that Mr. F.ndley was irregular
at meal time and was in the habit of
drinking after work, but that they only
saw him very full on the occasion of tbe
final separation. They were present
when be smashed his furniture and tried
to persuhds him not to do so. Findley
said be was going to leave bis wife be-
cause sbe was mean to him and would not
talk to h'm; did not accuse her of un
faithfulness. David Patterson testified that he had
known the Findleystix or seven months,
tbe families were on visiting terms.
Knew of no trouble tetween Findley and
his wife except on tbe day he broke the
furniture. Oa that day his wife was vis
iting witness and was going to take dinner
there. Findley cami; to the place where
witness was woraing and was drunk ; said
he was gaine to Davtnport for an im-.
proper purpose, and if he got home in
time would be at witness' home for sup-,
per. He did not come until quite late
ani was so drunk that be reeled. He
quarreled wltb his wi'e and pushed her
across the room calling her vile names.
He did not accuse his wife of any im
At this point tbe case was adjourned
1 he testimony this morning was of a
cumulative character and was mainly
upon tbe charge of UruDkenness. The
complainant was egiin carried into the
court room and remained during the
morning session .
Jessie Pearl Findley, the five-year-old
daughter of the partit s, was examined by
the judge as to her capicity to be a wit
ness and by consent cf all ibe parties was
allowed to tell her stcry unsworn. Sbe
sa:d her papa used to get drunk and she
knew be was drunk because he staggered

all right, but when be was mean they got
Mrs. Eva Patterson, the wife of the
witness who testified yesterday, substan
tiated her husband's testimony accept as
to Findley's saying he was going to
Davenport for an improper purpose.
Nostic Starofsky, Atwell Mowry,
Thomas Kearney and John MesBer, police
men of Moiine, stated that they had seen
the defendant drunk or under the influ
ence of liquor fiye or six times within the
past two years. Star 3f sky said in addi
tion that be had seen Findley in the com
pany of women of bad reputation from
Davenport in Moliue, and had seen him
take the midnight train at Moiine for
Roy Griffin, the six year old brother of
the complainant, told about the occur
rences on the day of tbe separation when
he choked his sister and smashed up the
furniture, and also that he often got
drunk and was so at tiis time.
Mr. Meese thendesi-ed to recall Mrs.
Findley to testify as t J her treatment of
her husband, and especially as to her
faithfulness to him, but the court held
that this 6hould have oeen brought out
when the witness was on tbe stand be
fore and declined to a low her to be again
eum'ned. This was nil the testimony
offered by tbe compla nant.
Mr. Kenworlby then made a motion to
exclude from the consideration of the
jury all evidence as to adultery and. hab
itual drunkenness an i eliminate those
two charges from the i:ase. This motion
upon argument was d nied, and the case
was continued until tt is afternoon when
tbe defense began.

arrival of delegates to the Slate Liquor
Dealers' association, says: "George Wag
ner, the tall and handsome proprietor of
tbe Atlantic brewery and malt bouse,
Rock Ifland, accompanied the Rock Isl

Wagner, the son of tbe proprietor of the
Atlantic, who is a delegate from Rjck
Island to the convention.

ing to the alley is up ready to receive the roof and everything now points
to a speedy completion of the work. Tte only way we know of to make
