SOME FAMILY HISTORY.
Otvtloprd by the Maikra Tr'al a
Davenport Doins Time For Mur
The llailus trial is making slow pro
gress in the district court. Yesterday
Dr. L. B Atkinson, of Rochester, Iowa,
was placed upon the stand to testify to
'the age of the prosecution witness. lie
Wig the attending physician at the time
ot tne gin s oirtn, ana. nxed the dale as
Sept. 15, 1879. Mrs. Sarah Kiddle, sis
ter of Mrs. Mattock, was called ta testify
to the same fact.
The questioning of Mrs. Riddle devel
oped as interesting bit of unwritten fam
ily history. On cross-:xaraiuaMon the
attorneys for the defense asked:
"Is your huaband liviDgf"
"What is bis business?''
"It is a blacksmith.''
"Is he working at his trade?"
"In the penitentiary?"
The court ruled against further ques
tioning, but the story connected with
Riddle's incarceration is given to us as
follows: In the fall of 1SS4. when Mrs.
Matlock was Mrs. Ammerman, she and
her sister. Mrs. Riddle, and their hus
bands were out riding near their home in
Cedir county, Kiddle began abusing his
wife, Ammerman interfered, a quarrel
and tight followed and Ammerman was
whipped. He refused to allow Riddle to
ride further in the vehicle, which belong
ed to the Ammermans, and Riddle pro
cured a revolver, followed Ammerman
and shot him. He was tried at Tipton,
found guilty, and sent to Anamosa for
life. Matlock was Ammerman's partner
at the time of the killing, and sometime
afterward he married Mrs. Ammerman,
Ada Ammerman, the prosecuting witness
in the Ha kes case, is the daughter of the
murdered mnn and the present Mrj. Mat
oc'i. Davenport Democrat
J. C. Rice's corcediucs appear at the
Burtis ote.-a bouse at Davenport tomtr-
row night in the excruciatingly funny
comedy, "A Knotty Aff ir." It is one of
the best and plliest attractions on the
road and will be witnessed no doubt by a
th'b clemsnceac case.
Those who have not read Dumas' novel
of the same name may be told that the
incidents of the play grow out of the
exploits of a banished Kussi in countess.
There is one scene in the play which has
been much talked of which is where Iza
poses as a model for a statue which her
husband is making. This scene has bem
much criticised owing to the realistic
manner in which it was prt sjnted at first.
Modifications have been made without any
loss of dramatic interest. The com, any is
composed ofjwell known plaer::SustayuB
Lvick, Charles Kent. Jennie ReilTarth
a'.d ethers of the original cast. Miss
Sybil Johnstone continues as Iza, and
one should not fail to see this beautiful
performance at the Burtis, Davm iort,
nest Monday, D.c. 14.
A party of surveyors for the Jackson
ville & Southeastern extension, arc now
in the vxinity of Monmouth working this
way. The Monmouth Review says:
In conversation with a gentleman of
this city the engineer said that he thought
Monmouth's rbances of being on the road
were good. It was on almost direct line
from Beardslown to Rick Island and was
not much out of the way from Havanna.
He thought the line would go either
through Galcsburg or Moamouth with the
chances in favor of this place. He said he
was of the opinion and thought the com
pany wa9 of tie same mind that Mon
mouth would be the better place for
them to strike. Ex-elUnt reasons made
tim hold his opinion. He thought
chances for the road wou'd he better here
than in Galesbur,;. The fre'ght business
was large and a new road would have a
chance of getting a shire of it. The
country along the proposed route here
was all ri.ht for railroad building. He
thought the road would be built next
spring. The Jacksonville & Southeast
ern could do much wors than to strike
Monmouth on a r.mte to the north. While
this city is not in crying need of mnre
north and south facilities for business,
another road could find an opening here.
