the Lnrortanate Accident
Which Orrnrred TneKday After-
Frank Singelman. the father of Louis
Singtlman. the 12 year old lad who was
scalded at the Electric Light Works in
Moline on Tuesday afternoon as men
tioned in The Argus last evening, ap
peared before Magistrate Wivill yesterday
afternoon and swore out a warrant
charging the fireman, Andrew Lindquist,
and William Lucklem, the engineer, with
assault with a deadly weapon. Officers
Mulqueen and Sundchn arrested both
men last evening and they were locked
up at the armory. Mr. Singelman's
story Is to the effect that his two sons
were in the habit of playing about the
boiler rooms there as did other children
in the neighborhood. The smaller boy
was told by the engineer and fireman on
Tuesday afternoon that if he did not go
awsy they would turn the hot water on
him, and he accordingly left, but shortly
after his 12 year old brother Louis, went
to the boiler room when suddenly the
water from the exhaust pipe was turned
on him and he ran at once to his home
where he was found to be terribly scalded,
and the matter of his recovery is now
The men were both brought before
Magistrate Wivill this morning, and it
appears from the story that neither knew
that tbe boy was near the exhaust pipe at
the time. It is customary to blow eff
about that time every afternoon, and the
end of the pipe is so situated that it
would be impossible to see anyone if he
was at the opening. The men also
state that they had no knowledge of the
accident until they had gone home that
evening. Magistrate Wivill held both
men in bonds of $1,000 to the 26th.
The men were immediately released on
bonds furnished by S. S. Davis.
