The interest in the Finrilty case was
centered mHinty in tbe tesiimony bearing
upon the Sitrlin? pi?ode jesterday after
noon, and quite a large audience was
pnsent. The ccntr. I figure was Tbeo
drre Wood, a young msri apparently
25, although claiming to be 36 yews old.
He made a vtry poor imi rtfsion upon the
evidence, though be answered tbe ques
tions pot to him pr imptiy and evaded
Before proceeding with the rebuttal.
Gust Peters, timekeeper at the Moline
Mnileable Iron Wi.rk. wascalled totestify
as to tbe hours thai Mr. Findley put in
at the thop, and said that on au average
he mf(ie about 340 b -urs her month.
Mrs Maggie Wood, tbe wifi of Theo
dore Wood, was thin called. She knew
tbe Find ey's atd is on visiting terms
with them; did not know of any improper
conduct beiwem her huibacd and Mrs.
Findley on Aug. 4; her husband took
breakfast, dinrer and supper with her,
and returning after sjppcr about 0 o'clock,
remained until abou . 11 o'clock with her.
Tbis covers tbe time testified to by the
clerks at the Randolph Louse when they
inferred that Wood i.nd Mrs. Findley were
together. She also stated that on the oc
casion that Mrs. Findley stated she saw
her hufbiud talking to witness, that Mr.
Findley asked witness to run away with
Theodore Wood .said he was 36 years
oli aDd a painter bj trade. Had at one
time a contract t.t SecLIer's carriage
works in Moline. Went to Sterl ng on
Aug. 3rd aud was there on the 4'h. re
turning to Moline m tbe 5 b. That
while there on the 4'.h he met Mrs
FiLdley and escorted her to the Randolph
house. At ber no, itst be registered for
her an.! piid her b.U with her money.
rThat he met her three times during the
day tit the hotel, cace in the momitgat
about 10, occe in tbe afternoon when be
bought her girl tome fruit and once
abtiut 8 o'clock in the evening; that he
remained not over 15 minutes at either
time, thai nothing improper occurred be
tween thtm there or at any other
time. He admitted taking her buggy
riding to Rock Islatd on July 25".h meet
ing her without arrangement on the street
and inviting her to go ia tha baggy in
stead of the car; tht he returned to Mo
line with her about 9 o'clock. He ad
netted that he v.sitrd the home of Mr.
Findley on the day of the separation, but
said that he bail bei n to tbe shop to see
him prior to going to his home and called
them to tulk about a dance that he and
Eli were getting up That when Eli came
home be seemed a. gry about something,
but did not ecuss him of anything im
proper, atd since that time had been
friendly with him. The cross-eximina-
tion was a rattler, but the wi'ness re
mained cool and c Elected and was not
mixed as much as tbe examiner appeared
Nostic Staroftky, a policeman of Mo
line. testified that during the examination
of the little girl, th.j clerks of the Ran
dolph house applie 1 vile epithets to Mrs.
Findley and said tl.at they had educated
and stuffed the lilt e girl to sweur Bginst
its father, which '.acguage OEe of them
had denied using.
Mrs. Findley wa called and said that
she went to Sterling in response to an
anonymous letter stating tbat her hus
band wbs in Sterling with Mrs. Woods.
She denied any improper conduct either
at Sterling or when buggy riding or any
other time with Wood or aDy one else.
Her denials were (harp and positiye, and
upon the close of her examination court
adjourned until th is morning.
The cross examination of Mrs. Findley
this morniDg conducted by Mr. Ken-
j. tby was rig'd, severe and
exacting, and wbih confined to the points,
tbe Sterling trip, the buggy ride and the
alleged exchange of iingB between the
witness and Wood, it covered every pos
sible phase of tbes-i matters. She made
a Bpeciflc denial as to each point made by
tbe defense and d d it in so straight for
ward a manner as to carry considerable
force. The only new fact brought oat
was the belief of the witness that the
anonymous letter she received informing
ber that ber husband was in Sterling, was
written by Mr. Findley or Ome one in
his interest for the purpose of tripping
Dawn Griffin testified that she bad been
given a ring by Mrs. Findley after the
separation and thut afterwards she ex
changed the ring with Mr. Woods for
one he had. Tha: this ring was one that
Mr. Findley had glvea his wife before
"Mrs. J ace Griffin testified that she
knew of her daugater going to Sterling
on August 4, and the purpose of her
going. On cross examination she denied
tbat on AugUBt 15 she had told Mr.
Findley that she knew nothing about her
daughter going t Sterling. With this
witness the coup ainatt closed her re
buttal. - !
The only further witness called was
Mr. Findley, who said that when ha went I
vuRviiut, to in b uiK.io tbe siatement
that ii. . i k nice f.,r a mrried omn
to go to Sterling with married man.
Mrs. Griffin eaid she knew nothing about
her daughter going to Sterling.
Afier consultation between court and
counsel it was agreed to submit to the

peated cruelty on the part of the defend
ant to the compkinant and the question

The Union ia now desperately endeav
oring to console the power behind the
throne by blackguardirg Capt. Marshall
and Acting Secretary Grant. This is a
pretty proceeding isn't it. It creates such
a nice impression to see a newspaper
which boasts of always being alive and
kicking when Rock Island's interests are
at stake, attempting to slander govern
ment officials simply because they did not
locate a great international project in a
manner that would permit one individual
to demand $50,000 for necessary rights.
A representative of tbe Mississippi Val
ley Manufacturers' Insurance company
has been making some queer statements
in tbe east. A letter from T. C. Camps
bell under date of New York was received
by McEniry fc McEniry this morning
Btating that a gentleman claiming to rep
resent tbe company had stated to Ber
mond, whose suit against the company
has attracted some attention in the press,
that the company had passed into the
hands of a receiver and offering to settle
for $500. The company ought to kick
pretty vigorously against any such mis
statements as that.

a great deal of complaint has been

pense a wngon exactly like tbe new one
at the Central engine house, and to keen
it in repair, the ordinary wear and tear
excepted, if the council will in return
agree to take it ( ff their hands whenever
tne company is dissolved. It would seem
that the offer is one that can be consist
ently accepted by Jthe council, especially
as me city will have a paid man at the
house who could look after the wagon,
and as the Gilpics have now two horses
and would no doubt make a valuable ac
quisition to the paid department. Then
again the council would not feel like dis
banamg the Gilpins until the time comes
for a paid company in tbe east part of
town, and then the wagon would come
in ail right for the paid department.
