P.ible Evldeoce Mrs.
Mrs. W. 3. Hill, who was made the
unfortunate Tictim of a fiendish assault
at her home on Thursday nitht, is still
confined to her bed from its effects. Hill,
who was detained at police headquarters
all day yesterday, was released last night
Chief Miller having been advised to take
such a coun e by a number of attorneys,
whose opini -n he sought in the absence
of the states attorney. The impression
of those with whom the chief sought coun
sel was, that while there as strong cir
cumstantial evidence against Hill, there
was notbins as jet learned to establish a
motive for such an act on his part, and
hence it would be a difficut matter to con
Chief Miller, however, does not pro.
pose to let t ae matter rest here not that
he is particularly anxious to fasten the
blame upon Hill any more than he is to
exonerate' him, but he is determined to
find the one who is guilty of the heinous
crime, if pot sible. This morning he fell
upon a piece of strong evidence of a cir
cumstantial nature. In his conversa
tiorjs concerning his purchase of nitric
acid, Mr. Hi 1 declared that it was secured
several days ago for a hoof disease of his
horse, and that he bad purchased it all at
the Fourth avenue drug store. This
morning Chief Miller ascertained that a
cilored man answering Hill's descrip
tion had purchased a large bottle of ni.
trie acid at Harrison's pharmacy in Dav-.
enport early Thursday evening before the
occurrence. Mr. Htrrison remembers the
man's appearance perfectly, and he was
expected over this afternoon to identify
Hill. . '
When seen by an Argus reporter who
called at her house this morniag, Mrs.
Hill was apparently indignant at the
charge ibat had been made against her
husband. In answer to a question from
the reporter as to whether she had any
cause to suspicion any one of it, she re
plied, "no s. r, I cannot imagine why any.
one should wish to treat me in that way.
I do not know why my husband should
be suspected of this crime as our
domestic relations are, and always
have been very happy. I was
present wh;n the boy told my bus.
band to get the nitric acid for the horse's
hoof, but the bottle which he got wag
fonnd in my husband's pocket where he
to'd the chitf of police he could find it."
"Then in your opinion the suspicion
against your husband is unwarranted,"
was the question put by the reporter.1 ..
"It certahily is. for when I first was
aroused by the liquid being thrown in my
face, I saw a man disappear into the hall
way and a cbair was placed near the door
as if to trip any pursuer. I immediately
went into my husband's room and found
him in bed, and he afterward got up and
went after the doctor."
Mrs. Hill was apparently yery much in
earnest: and to all appearaaces believes
her husband innocent,, notwithstanding
that her stc ry does not agree with her
husband's in one particular, as he stated
yesterday t a reporter that he was
aroused by lis wife's cries and went to
her room, when he discovered that the
vitriol had baen poured npon ber face.
He still maintains that chloroform was
used instead of nitric acid, and that who
ever did it,attempted to pnt him under its
influence als3. When the reporter men
tioned to hiti the conflicting statements
of himFelf at d and his wife this morning
as to which entered the other's room, he
said, "Well, I was so under the chlorc
form that I could not remember circum
stances or what I said yesterday."
Water Main Trouble.
Supcrinter dent of Waterworks Murrin
has been pretty busy since Thursday
night's fire repairing water mains which
the unusual pressure bursted. At Third
avenue and Fourth street a 12 inch pipe
gave way and the lower floor of the
stove works was flooded in consequence.
Tbis damage was repaired, however, by
noon yesteriay. But the bursted 12
inch main on Second avenue east of
Twentieth ws not so easily repaired.
The unusual pressure of 105 pounds
which was necessary to reach School
Building No. 6 caused a defective place
la the pipe to break, and the water
soon found its way ' to the sur
face. Bupt. Murrin's forces worked
all day yesterday and until 8 o'clock this
morning, when work was suspended until
this morning on account of the necessity
of blasting. At daylight work was re
samed, and Mr. Murrin hopes by this
evening to have the broken main re
placed. At 10 o'clock this mcrning a portion of
the bank caved in on William Beddig
who was stooping down cutting the pipe.
His shoulder was wrenched and his left
arm cut by teirg brought in contact with
tie ragged edne, of the pipe. ' The in

Mr. DeGear to jump over a fence of a

at that moment Mr. Gte'jer's little girl
rushed out and said a man had been in

Gaetjer at once gaye chase to the man

crouched behind a fence at the corner of

doing there be said be was simply eating

was W. H. Austin, that his home was in

and was expecting a pension from the

could. He asked enough money to se
cure a bed for the night and Messrs.
Weisler and Gaetjer who were at first dis

were so impressed with the apparent sin

Speakieg of tie Chilian affair, General
W D. Flagler, chief of ordnance of the
United States army, who wss at the Audi
torium, said to a Chicago Iiter-Ocesn
reporter that while this country has no
coast defenses, it possesses the best known
small srms and the best type of heavy
armament in the world.
"We are by no meacs the defenselets
country that many people imsgine," he
continued. "The Lnittd States would
not adopt a magszice arm in use by any
country in Europe. Oir 8Drinefield

the European continent. Military men
abroad know that the models of our

officers over the rank and file is a merit
although sometimes contemptuously
spoken of. West Point is in advance of
any military academy in tue world and it
has turned out officers sufficient in num
ber and training to commnand a large
army, and when needed we have the very
best aims and equipments for 200.000
men. When the people decide to go to
war they will furnish the men by the mil

appropiations for our arsenals. Our

the present work on the navy ordnance
I feel that San Francisco, Boston and
New York will be in a fair state of de

"In the United Slates," he continued,
"it is always easier to get men than guns

the men by the million and the govern
ment ought to see to it that the guns are
ready for them if needed in defense of
