A BUSY LIFE ENDED.
E. P. Reynolds Passes to His Rest
at Wyniore, Neb.
Oue oflt.ck I.land ,1 B. Kmwh and
Mt K-tteme4 Citizen IV o
The sad intelligence was conveyed over
the wire this morning of the death of E.
P. Reynolds of this city at 9:15 last even
ing;, at the home of his youngest son, E.
P. Reynolds, Jr., in Wymore. Neb.
Notwithstanding that the first of last
January the erroneous report came of
Mr. Reynolds' death at Wy more, the in
formation having been misconstrued ow
intj to the news of Mr. Reynolds' brother's
death, the sadness finally coming practically
without a fore
runner, was as
deep and as
gretted as any
the wires to
this city. Mr.
a well known
E. V. JUynolds. man Bnd Uked
by all, owirij to his lorg time residence
in this city and to his eenial. good ways
and charitable instincts. He was one of
the few men whose milk of human kind
ness was practically beyond measure, and
with whom an acquaintance meant re
spect and admiration for the many good
qualities constantly showing themselves.
His history has been almost the history
of the transportation problem in this
country, and his acts are made more en
dearing by these monuments of his own
ingenuity and energy than any words of
tongue could speak or pen could write.
That a good man has gone, one in whom
the community felt a more than kindly
interest, and that a vacancy in the citi
zenship of this city has been created that
none else can fill no one will gainsay.
The acts and life of him who has gone
beyond is more than worthy of the emu
lation of those who are now with us or
who may come among us .
lion. E. P. Reynolds was born on the
Orion river near Montpelier iu Washing
to county Vermont, Feb. 13, 1817. His
father was a Baptist minister and he was
ODe of a family of five brothers and three
sisters. His parents bting poor, young
Elishc. was at an early age compelled to
support himself and acquired his bock
knowledge in an attic over a merchantile
store in Boston where he worked for his
board and clothes. Early recognizing
the posfcibiliiies in the west for a man he,
in company with his elder brother Nazra,
recently deceased, started on the long
trip to the head of Lake Michigan. Arriv
ing there and not being well pleased with
the locality which has since become the
site of the city of Chicago, they deter
mined to push on westward to the Mis
sissippi river. This was done largely on
boat, except an occassional lift on the
way by a friendly teamster. Coming
down on the Rock river they commenced
their residence in Reck Island county by
accepting service on the old Knox farm
near the end of the Moline bridge, as
farm laborers. This was about 1844, but
the venture not proving as successful as
anticipated, the subject of this sketch
three years later left the farm and he be
came engaged in brick business, con
tracting, erecting buildings, etc. This
line he followed for seven years, when in
1S53 he enlarged his field of operation,
ta king in the construction of public
works. For four years he was engaged
in enterprises of this sort including the
running af a saw mill on the site of the
present C, R. I. & P. engine house.
In 1857 he engaged in the work of
railroad construction, which has since
been his chosen avocation un
til the present time. Among his earlier
work was some grading on the present
R , I. & P. railwny; he and Thomas
Saulpaugh the latter now of Mankato,
Minn., were associated together for more
notable contracts, bemg the St. Faul,
Dubuque and Louisiana bridges over the
Mississippi river. the Glasgow and Piatts
mouth over the Missouri river, and the
Cincinnati Southern railway over the
Ohio river, besides a large amount of
miscellaneous railway construction. The'
largest contract he ever took to complete
in one year, and in fact one that ranks
among the heavy contracts of the coun
try, was the construction of 250 miles of
the C, B. & Q . furnishing everything
except iron, ties and spikes. The amount
he received for this work alone was $1,
500,000, and during the time he was en
gaged in it he employed 3,000 men and
In 1860 Mr. Reynolds purchased 350
acres of land in Hampton township,
which has been occupied by tenants
In 1881 Mr. Reynolds associated with
him bis two older sons John and Ben, in
the business, the firm being E. P. Bey
nolds & Co., which it remained until the
present date. During this time the firm
has done much important work on the
Burlington, Rock Island, Missouri Pa
cific, Chesapeake & Ouio, and Sioux City
The deceased was one of the original
organizers of the Rock Island Savings
b ink and its first president, and was a
director at the time of his death. He
was mayor of the city two terms, from
1878 to 1880, and his administration was
one of the best in the city's history.
A little less than a year ago, Mr. Rey
nolds went with his wife to California in
hopes of benefitting his health, and on his
return stopped at Wymore where his
youngest son resides, and where be has

THK MARY MORTON'S FATE.
Th Well Known Packet Mnnk Halow
1'larKHVllle 8atordy-Kofk Inland
The Diamond Joe line packet, Mary
Morton, with about 100 passengers
and crew, struck a snag just below Town
Island and about a mile below Clarksvllle
Saturday morning and sank in 12 feet of
water. She tipped badly when she first
struck, righted almost immediately, and
now lies squarely on her bottom and in
good shape to be raised. None of the
passengers or crew were icjured, but
about two cars of freight floated off into
the river She had a big trip. Pilot
Ed FVest was on watch when she struck,
and Engineer Chas. Battam showed his
grit by staying by his engines in water
up to bis hips to answer signals from
the pilot house. From the fact that she
sank in less than seven minutes from the
moment she struck, she must have
smashed a pretty large hole in her hull
and the damage can hardly be estimated.
The passengers and crew were taken up
to Clarksville by the ferry boat Edith and
forwarded by rail to their various desti
nations. Capt. James Boland was in
command of the boat.
Oj hearing of the fate of the Morton
Capt. John Killen of the flagship Pitts
burgh, and who is superintendent of
the Jo line, telegraphed to St. Louis for
a competent diver to go to the spot and
examine her and be ready to report to
him upon his arrival.
The Diamond Jo line had just made
arrangements to make a change of sched
ule, and had issued to agents all along
the river a lot of new tims cards. The
wreck of the Mary effectually changes
the card without the interferance of the
agents or officials, but it doesn't make
life or work any easier for the two boats
that are left. Wnat the emergency
schedule will ba cannot now be told.
In the cargo of the sunken steamer was
considerable freight for Rock Island,
which was as follows:
F.A. Druckmiller Two kegs American
Trefz & Co. Eight cases of toys.
Henry Dart's Son; Two cases choco
late. J. W. Stewart Sixty-eight bundles
Jahns & Bertleeon One cask of
earthenware, 46 pieces of iron pipe, nine
iron pieces of fittings, four closet tanks
and fittings, one rough marble, one can
putty, two bath tubs.
Blake & Burke Twenty-nine pieces of
iron pipe, eight iron pipe fittings, two
sacks of wool, one barrel of earthenware,
one crate of copper, sinks.
Hartz & Bahnsen Ten barrels of paint.
