Yards A Coupling Link Driven Into Ills
John K. Eberhart, residing at
Seventh avenue and Twenty-fourth
street, met with a distressing acci
dent while at work on a scaffold at
the new residence of l'rof. Bishop on
Twentieth street at 4:20 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. Mr. Eberhart,
who is a carpenter, and (ius Swan
son, a helper, had just linished work
on the scaffold and were preparing
to descend when the structure gave
way and the former fell to the ground
below, a distance of 4 feet, striking
on some rocks and sustaining in
juries from which lie may not re
ceiver. Th" unfortunate man was
picked up and carried into the house
where .he was tenderly eared for and
afterward conveyed to his home. He
was attended by Dr. Asay and after
ward by lrs. Bradford. Plummerand
Craig. Upon examination his spine
was found to be injured, causing
partial paralysis. Everything that
medical skill and science could pro
vide was done anil it is hoped that he
will now get along all right. Mr.
Eberhart, though i4 years of age. is
of a rugged constitution which is
rrcatlv in his favor, (ins Swanson
the helper managed to save himself
bv getting hold of the eaves when
the' scaffold fell.
A l-:rakein:in Seriously Injured.
Thomas Costigan, a brakeman in
the K. I. & 1'. vurds, and residing at
!S4I Case street, lavenport. met with
a frightfully paintul aecnlent at
o'clock this morning. lie was en
gaged in making ut" a t rain if transient
oars and had' just stepped in between
two cars to make a coupling when a
number of oars were kicked down bv
the switch engine into the train he
was working on. with such force that
the link he was holding in the act of
coupling was driven into the groin,
lacerating the tlesh fearfully, laying
bare the nerves and muscles, com
pletely paralyzing the leg and
femoral artery. The man suf
fered I lie most exerutiating
pain iniagineable. He was taken to
the waterworks and Dr. l'luinmer
called. The surgeon, after makinga
hurried examination, summoned the
patrol wagon and had the man taken
to his home? at Davenport. Dr. lMum
mer accompanying him. The injury
is regarded as of the- most serious
nature, especially as it affects the
femora! artery, which is likely to
cause hemorrhage and fatal results.
The remains of Mrs. Edward Mo

The Cnlon's Idea or It McConocliie No
Criterion for the New Mayor.
The Union of this morning an
nounces: The Akgls does not seem to be
afraid that the withholding of his ap
pointments on Monelay night by Me
etill means the smashing of the dem
ocratic caucus state. It says there
is no reason whv he should make any
concessions to tlie republicans, and
eloes not expect that any further cau
cus will be held; the delay, it asserts,
was "Merely with a view of. giving
the republican aldermen a respectful
hearing in advance if they had any
suggestions to make."' We cannot
speak for Mr. Medill. of course, but
would not suppose that he w oulel in
vite men to a "respectfull hearing"1
if his mind was set against the
things he might expect te hear. The
delay indicated that he hael seen the
error into which he had been
inadvertently led by his partisan
friends, ami 'that he took time te rec
tify it before it lieoame toe late. His
aeldress certainly indicated a desire
to follow in the footsteps of his pre
decessor, and to elo that he should
first of all have a non-partisan civil
service men chosen feir fitness and
merit rather than party service and
hehl responsible aceorelingly.
The Union states the Audi's' posi
tion correctly for once, b it said.
There is no reason whatever te expect
a change on Mr. Meelill's part from
the course already attributed to him
as regards his appointments, and that
he will make no eleviation from those
determined upon as hitherto an
nounced, the Akc.I's is fully oonli-di-nt.
Because he has yielded to the
persuasion of the republican alder
men who desired to have a hearing
before making his appointments, is
no reason why he should waver in his
judgment already lixed or make the
least change in the list of his ap
pointments as tleeided upon. So
that if the Union is contenting itse-lf
with any idea or hope of seeing the
slate smashed." as it -puts it. it will
be doomed to disappointment.
The assurance of the Union in ex
pecting such results, is on a par w ith
the- conclusion it has accepted that
there ha been anything to indicate
that Mr. Medill proposed to follow
in i he footsteps of his predecessor.
The new tnayor was elected on a
platform of direct opposition to Me-Conochie-
polities in any form, and
for him to adopt such methods as
characterized the McConoi hie way
of shaping his administration two
vears ago. would be not only a dis
regard for the principles upon which
his candidacy 'was based, but would
be verv apt to be suicidal as well.
The MeConochie idea of civil service
which closed his eyes to the- short
comings of one poliecman on one
hand because he was backed by the
in tluenee".and at another time- le-d
him to disregard the litm-ss of either
offices and attempt to remove such
men from eflice as Supt. Murrin of
the waterworks is a beautiful idea of
civil se-rvice. isn't it? A creditable
record to hold up for t lie example of
a new mavor and expect him to em
ulate. The I nion Should Take a liest.
As a matter of faef. therefore, the
Union might as well save its breath.
Ds advice is hardlv ne-edeel in view
of the el-etion results, and its thinker
seems to be as badly off as its in
formant who was responsible for thi:
.mnoiineement -which apl'eareil in
this morning's issue:
The republican aldermen visited
Mayor Medill's oilice by invitation
last evening anil spent two or three
hours there, presumably talking over
themunieipal situation. 1 he mayor
doubtless invited and obtained their
views as to the changes he propose-
to make. Whether he will proht ly
them remains to be seen on 1 hurstlay
Mr. Medill received no visits from
republican aldermen by invitation
last evening or any other time. A
number of them called voluntarily
and gave him their views to which the
mavor gave respect lul Hearing as ne
had agreeel to do, not with any inten
tion o7 making any changes as the
Union presumes. " If Mayor Medill
has any disposition to recognize re
publicans in positions not heretofoie
settled upon in his mind, he would
be more ant to be expected to re-poet
the wishes of those republicans w ho
supported his candidacy, though to
be sure-, in so uom m- it....
