Two Animals Die From Neglect
CEIMUfAL PROCEEDINGS STARTED.
1W Secend ATenne.
Martin Wright and C. Petentonf or Black
Hawk, Hade Defendant to Grave
Charges Preferred by Rock Is and Cltl"
ens Most Inhuman If the Allegations
be True .
A. case of alleged cruelty to anima'a
has just come to li-jht in which, if tbe il
legations are correct, the panic ehaged
are deserving of the most extr me cen
sure. Ia Magistrate Wivill's court suits
bare been filed by S. B Her.dren and
Frpd Bruhn against Msrtin Wright and
C. Pe;erson for damages of $2 M) fer tbe
death of two colts, aged respectively
4 ar.d 2 years, and damages of $75 to
another horse, all of which wire being
wintered on the defendant's farms Stale
warrants charging them with cruelty to
animals were also sworn out, and the
prosecution will begin at once.
Tbe Cause of the Actloti.
The reason of the damige mi's and
criminal proceedings grows out of the
fact thai last Bummer tbe complainants
in the case .Messrs. Henderson und Bruhn
took two colts and anotner ho-se out to
the farms of Messrs. Wright aid Peter
son, beyond Milan to have them taken
care of, andduring the summer and fall.
It is said, that the horses got an nicely
and the owners we?e well ea isfltd with
their treatment. It if further
alleged that during the fall the two own
ers went out and arranged ta have tl e
horses taken care of during :he winter,
agreeing to pay a certain sum for tbe
same. Supposing that the tr rses were
of course receiving tbe prep r attention
they paid no further aUentiot, except to
inquire occasionally, when they were told
that the horses were getting along all
Claim They Were Starved.
Finally tbe colts bath died, and after
investigating tbe case tbe complainants
claim to be able to prove tht.t tbe colts
were simply starved to dea'h. A post
mortem examination revealed the fact
that the stomachs of tie animals
contained nothing but bits o' bark and
twigs that they had nibbled from trees.
During alt tbe cdla weather of Decem
ber, January and tbe pretent month,
tbe colts were in so open p tiiture, with
no covering or shed cf an 7 kind to
prelect them from the stora , and wee
not given anything whatever to ea:, aN
though several stacks of hsy were
within a few hundred feet 0! where tbe
horses were pastured. Nfi;hbors state
that it was pitiful to se the poor
beasts walking around and around in a
circle as horses will do wa :n hungry,
and tbtre wa9 a good de il of talk
among residents in that vicinity of
breaking tbe fences down and allowing
the acimals to get at the buy near by.
The stories that are being told of how
inhumanly tbe dumb animals were
treated are even worse than here stated,
and if they are true an exanple should
be made of men who have no more re
gard for God's creatures than to allow
them to be exposed a winter like the
present one without food or shelter.
If there were reason for anxiety con
cerning a full cut of logs ia the Missis
sippi woods this winter, says tbe Lum
berman, the loggers would te complain
ing of tbe weather that has prevailed for
tbe past two weeks. Dee d snow and
constant storms added to this severe cold
has made work slow for man and beast.
During the last two weeks I .-as work has
been c!one than during any equal period
since Dec. 1. But no great complaint is
beard from any point, for snow and
frost now insures a lengthening of
tbe logging season to April 1 or
near that date, and very few
camps will care to prolong the season
beyond that date. The an w is from
two to three feet deep over almost tbe
whole field of operations on tbe gTat
river. This will go far toward bringing
the logs down when the tpring thaw
According to the figures of tbe lumber
cut ia the white pine dis .rict the past
season, Michigan still lead ns a lumber
producing state. There was cut in
Michigan approximately t, 800 000.000
feet of lumber. Wisconsin is a close
second with 8.600,000 feet, while Minne
sota produced but 1.280.000.000 feet.
A change baa been made in one of
Rock Island's best known millinery
establishments, by which Mrs. Mary
Blackburn has associated be rself in busi
ness with Miss Kate Byrnes. All tbe ar
rangements have been completed and the
change takes place at once. The business
will hereafter be conduct d under tbe
firm same of Byrnes & Blackburn.
Miss Byrnes, tbe senior member, has
been in business here for 1? years and by
her tact, business sagacity and thorough
knowledge of this particular line has
built up a large and profitable trade.
The new member is also well known and
popular, and that "they w:ll meet with
abundant sncceis there ia no doubt what

NEW RAILROAD PROJECTS,
An Election Across the Klver Yesterday
A M"uscatine Proposition.
The railroad election in Le Claire and
Princeton township, Scott county, took
place yesterday and there was a good
deal of enthusiasm manifested by tbe
supporters of the project, and opposition
by those opposed to it that was just about
as determined. The vote resulted as fol
Le Claire. 160
Total 311 3SS
The Democrat in commenting on tbe
vote on tbe proposition says: "The
greatest argument for the arousing of
Davenport enthusiasm is found, after all,
in the opposite direction tbe coming ot
the Jacksonville Southeastern road.
Particulars cannot be too intimately re
lated bore, bat it can be generally sttted
that the assurance of tbe construction of
this line to Clinton is practically the as
surance that the J. 8. E main line will
enter this city; ia fact all three of the
tri cities. It cannot exactly be said that
this latter assurance is official, but it
comes privately fro n official sources and
is just as reliable as though it had been
signed, sealed and delivered."
A Mascmtliie Schema.
The Muscatine North & South railroad
companjhasbeen incorporated, with a capi
tal stock of f 10.000. 000. William Battinr,
Richard Musser, P. M. Musser, Henry
Jane and G. M. Titus are the director;,
and it ia proposed to build a railroad be
tween Muscatine and Chicago or to some
point connecting with Chicago, and from
Muscatine west to the Missouri river.
Fifty miles of new road, it is claimed,
would connect the city with any one of
four trunk ;lines ether than the Rock
Island, the only one there, and from the
high standing of members of the new
company considerable importance is at
tached to tbe move.
At the meeting of the Stevenson club
last night it was decided to hold a grand
Inaugural ball on on the evening of
March 3. It will be held at the Armory
and will be a strictly invitation affair.
Every precaution is being ttken to assure
thereby a strict supervision of invita
tions and tickets and it will no doubt be
made a social success. Committees hare
been appointed who will have the affair

TO BEAT HIS HONOR.
Schroeder Fixes Up a Slate of
HOT . AFTER TEE MAYORALTY.
Finding That the Mayor Had the Pins Pat
Cp to Carry the Convention for Ills Own
Crowd, the Sixth Ward Alderman Con
ceive a Plan for His Own Salvation.
Things political may be running along
noislessly for the republicans, but no
less actively; and the waring factions are
opposing eaeh other with all the force at
their commaud. As heretofore stated,
the mayor has the inside track as far as
having bis own way with the convention
is concerned, and his little administra
tion ticket, composed of himself for tbe
head of it, Ruben Koehler for clerk, J.
L. Haas for attorney and William Ken
nedy for magistrate loons like an ante-
Realising thia, Aid. Schroeder, of the
rSxthward, who would rather forfeit 10
years of his life than fail of becoming
mayor, has made out a little ticket of
his own, which will be presented to
tbe convention when it shall meet
This scheme involves tbe name of W.
F. 8chroedr for mayor, that of Hugh
A. McDonald for city clerk, M. E.
Sweeaey for city attorney and Robert
Bennett for police magistrate. Schroeder
has brought himself to the belief that
there is too much German in the Mc
Conocbie ticket for him, and as far as
his chances are concerned, he is prob
ably correct in such a yiew of the situa
tion. Other Candidate.
But these two tickets are not tbe only
ones ibe republican may have to choose
from. Th3 names of W.B.Ferguson
and Henry Carse have been mentioned
with much earnestness for the bead of the
ticket in tbe last few days, while J. Alex
Montgomery is thinking seriously of
coming out for clerk, and H. A. Weld is
by no means sleeping on his oars in his
canvass for the police magistracy nom
Returned te Work.
All tbe men who quit work at Deere &
Co.'s Tuesday haye returned to work and
Gilpin Moore says the differences have
been satisfactorily adjusted. Mr. Moore
saysjtbe reason the men quit work was
because of a change made by tbe com
patty in te price of work to be paid Mr.
Gale, who has a number of men and
boys working for him. The old prices
were established when the company bad
much less of this class of work to be
done, and consequently Mr. Gale em
ployed but a few hands. Since then the
amount of this kind of work has in
creased, Mr Gile has to have more hands
under his supervision, and new machin
ery and appliances have been provided so
that a much greater quantity of work is
In consequence of this Mr. Gale was
enabled to m&ke a larger profit on tbe
work done under his supervision than the
company was willing to pay nnder present
conditions. Mr. Moore says further that
be had informed Mr. Gale that he did not
desire to have him make any reduction in
the wages paid bis helpers, as it was not
intended that the change in prices should
affect them. Mr. Moore says concerning
tbe settlement of the differences, that a
few mistakes bad been made in the figures
recently given out. These errors were
readily coirected, and both parties are
satisfied. Mistakes of this kind, he says,
are liable to occur in any readjustment of
prices, and such mistakes tbe company is
at all times willing to remedy when they
are brought to tbe notice of its officers.
Leak in a Postal Car.
The mallear on the C, M. & St. P.
coming into the city Tuesday evening
see mi to have a had a leak in it. At
least, one of the Moline mail sacks
dropped out of it in some unexplained
manner, and was picked up along the
track yesterday morning by William
Scbultze, who lives in the east end, while
he was on his way to his work. He
found it, or rather a piece of it, about
five blocks east of the Twenty-third
Btreet telegraph station, Moline. He'
also fouud a portion of the mail that
had been found in it, and handed bis
find in at tbe postofflce. . A little later
Charles Johnson, of the Moline postofflce
force, went up and walked a long dis
tance along the track. He succeeded in
finding the balance of tbe bag, very bad
ly torn up as though it bad been dragged
some distance by the train. He also suc
ceeded in finding more of the mail, some
of it valuable. It is not likely that very
much of tbe mil is lost, but some of it
so badly soiled and torn up that tbe ad
dresses cannot be read.
