HILL ARRESTED AGAIN.

W. 1$. Hill, the colored citizen residing
t 535 Nineteenth itreet, and who has
been twice detained by the police before
on us.icion of having perpetrated the
fnghtf illy cruel outrage on Mrs. Hill on
the nigUt of Not. 5, by throwing the con
tents of a bottle of nitric acid on her face
while uhe slept, but released each time
for wt:it of proper evidence, was again
arreste l by Officer Kramer ibis morning.
This time Hill will be required to answer
to a formal charge preferred
by State's Attorney Sturgeon
accusing him of the crime of mayhem.
The state's attorney was not In the
city at lhe time of Hill's former arrest,
and while evidence was acciimuldted by
Chiel Miller at the time, as published in
The Ajigcs from da to day. sufficient to
base strong BUFpicions of Hill's guilt, in
the abf ence of means of establishing a
motive for the crime the chief was, by
attorneys whom he consulted, advised
not to hold him, and he was released.
The public is familiar with Bill's having
purchased nitric acid at the Fourth ave
nue drog store here and also at Harmon's
drug stare in Davenport at the latter
stcre the night of the commission of the
Hill I as engaged Us j Beardsley to de
fend hita and tbe preliminary hearirg
will probably come up before Magistrate
Wivill tomorrow morning.
Mrs. llill is reported by Dr. Einyon
still suflering from the effect of the vit
riol, and the disfigurement will be greater
than at first anticipated.
All laU week the sheriff's- effice was
shrouded in a veil of mystery. Everyece
connected with the office was sworn to
absolute secrecy and an air of great
solemnity prevaded all the place. The
cause for all this gradually leaked out
when it was whispered about that tbe
sheriff vi as laying for an attempt at jail
delivery which was tbe outcome of a let
ter received by that executive from a
prisoner within, the walls to tbe eSect
that plaus tor a jail delivery were being
speedily perfected, and that it might be
expected to occur any evening between
supper time and locking np time, and
further designated two windows, tbe bars
of which had been aawed almost through,
so that tuings" were almost ready to make
the attempt. .
The iheriff in some way forget tbe
eld adige that "a bird in tbe
hand is worth two in the bush,"
so instead of at once taking measures
to have the bars repaired, and thus frus
trate the plana of bis birds, he played
ignorant of the fact in order to give them
a chance to escape, that he might have
the satisfaction of catching at least aome
of them. He accordingly notified the po
lice to be in readiness for a call for assist
ance, at d tbe outcome was awaited in
breathless suspense. The floe working
of the caie may be appreciated when it is
mentioned that even the prisoners inside
tbe jail "tumbled" that they were being
watched from outside and let the plans
drop, and tbe radiant hope that had beat
high in the bosoms of tbe sheriff and po
lice dropped with a dull, sickening thud,
and their visions of glory have passed
It is HUppcsed. the bars "tampered
with" have been repaired now, which
upon sober thought ' would seem to be a
wise precautionary measure.

Mrs. M. A. McK nley, mother of M.
R McKinlt-y, foreman of the Moline
Plow company's foundry, hsd a remark
able experience Sunday, which is told by
the Republican-Journal as follows:
She hae been f dieted for about a year
and a half with tbe entire loss of sight in
her right eye, brought on, as she believes,
b the, glnr of the tun on the oay at San
D'eg'S C.il , where she lived a number
of ary. Sbe noticed her sight failing
gradually, black streaks appearing before
the affected optic, which finally culm.n
ated in entirely shutting out the liht.
This sfftc.ed tbe other eye. and finally a
few weeks ago, sbe had her eyes exmin
el by a lecal oculist, who imparted the
still intelligence that in all probability the
other ete would shortly be sightless also,
an I advised an operation. Being almost
70 years old, sbe did not feel able to
stand the shock ot an operation, but tbe
worry over tbe prospect of being totally
blii d made her tick. Finally, as sbe is a
fi;m believer in God and His power 'o an
swer prayer, she btgn playing
that her siaht iniht he restored.
biiturday liight she was unable to sleep,
and continutd in pnyer over tbe matter
all night. Sunday morning she was
most aureeably astonished to find that
sbe could discern objecis in the room,
but did not date to speak of it for fear it
might be imagination. However, at noon
she could see quite cleaily. snd on put
ting her band over the well eye could
plainly distinguish every ol.ject in tbe
room the children, the color and texture
of their clotbiDg in fact could see quite
distioctlv. Today sbe can uee her eye
still better though there is a slight twitch
ing or pu!siticg of one of tbe nerves.
This is truly a remarkable case and
seems to be attributable to nothing else
than ansxer to prayer as Mrs. McKinley
and ber family fiimly believe. Such
cases when reported are usually discredi
ted and set down as the vagaries of irre
sponsible cranks but here is a case right
in our midtt which anyone who chooses
can have the fullest chance to investigate
and tbe circumstances of which have
been well known to tbe physcians of tbe
Syr op of Figt.
