Yesterday's joint sessions of the

done at chairs and tables placed near
the windows on the north and west
sides of the room. The spectators
of whom there was present all the
time an interested group of 10i1 or
more, passed from one point of inter

Death or Mrs. K.I. I'inneo.
Mrs. M. K. Pinneo, wife of E. V
Pinneo, died at her home over 1721,
Second avenue, at 9 o'clock last
evening, of nervous prostration and
paralvsis, aged fyJ years. She had
been in feeble health for several
years. Deceased was born in Eng
land, coming to this city with her
husband, the late Alfred Gates
in 175. Thev embarked in the dry
foods business, which she con
ducted during her widowhood and
which has been in charge of Mr. Pin
neo since their marriage. Mrs. Pin
neo was well known and had many
friends who will learn with sorrow
of her death. She leaves, besides
her husband, one daughter, Mrs.
Frank Attwater, of this city.
The funeral will be held from the

ceased. Circuit Court Callings.
The case of Oltmann vs. the Rock
Island National bank and T. S. Sil
via is still in progress in the circuit
court and will probably be finished
tonight. The case grows out of the
levying by Sheriff Silvia on the stock
of goods in the American clothing
store on the grounds that they be
longed to Samuel Arndt, who was in
charge of it. Mr. Oltmann claims
that the goods belonged to him but
they were sold as belongingto Arndt;
hence the suit for $ 10,000. .
The Outraccous Attempt to Ittow up
The attempt to blow up the resi
dences of Editor John E. Mahin, E.
M. Kessinger and N. Kosenberger at
Muscatine yesterday morning, as de
scribed in last evening's Aitfius, was
the one topic naturally, which agi
tated all minds in that citv all day-
yesterday. The effect was to com
pletely paralyze business. No one
thought or talked of anything else
but the dastardly crime, ami even
the schools were closed for the day
in consequence. Ihe Journal of last
evening, I w inch Mr. 3ianin is edi
tor, introduces its account of the af
fair by saying:
The most dastardly deed ever
known in this city, yes, we might
say the state, was perpetrated at the
small hour of nisrht. about 1:30
o'clock this morning when the tools
of the saloons almost simultaneously
used dynamite or some otner icrrioie
powerful exnlosive on the homes of
John Mahin, editor of this paper, E.
M. Kessenger, a reiireo. capnaiisi,
and N. Kosenberirer. an attorney.
jeopardizing not only the lives of the
three persons named above but, the
innocent lives of the methers, chil
dren, guests and help. It is some
thing that pen can not describe, for
words do not suince. jnai iius
should be done in Muscatine was
never anticipated or thought of by
the better class of citizens. What
are we coming to? "Will anarchy
reign supreme in this city?" are the
questions every good citizen is ask
ing of himself todav.
The three houses were completely
wrecked. It is believed dynamite or
nitro o-lvcerine was the explosive
used, though among the debris in the
cellar of the Kessinger house was
found the twisted and blackened
fragments of a 25 pound tin powder
cam The bottom and top were torn
ilT nnil the tinted sides were bent and
twisted. How much of the deadly
explosive was contained in this re
ceptacle is not know n.
The escane ot the occupants oi me
three houses attacked was marvel
ous. In Mr. Mahin s house me en
tire family were thrown from their
beds, while Mr. Mahin's son. Harold.
who slept on the second floor, was
found down stairs, iiiougu uum
bird, nn.l not knowinir how he got
there. At Mr. Uosenberger's resi
dence, the 1'ieatest damage was done
1 1. Iiaiw heinnr leveled to the
ground. The Journal says:
Almost M iracnloiis .
When Mr. Kosenberger recovered
himself he did not know where his
familv were. Ilis wife found herself
down in the cellar covered with plas
ter, lath and Mooring, while her babe
was buried beneath her feet, and the
other little one was wedged in be
tween some of the timbers. She
picked up her precious babe and pro
ceeded to help the other one out of
its dilemma. Upstairs Mrs. Kosen
beger's sister. Miss Hattie Prier. of
Brighton, and Miss Emma McCul
lougli, of Nebraska, were sleeping.
The shock threw the former out of
bed and the walls having bulged out,
thus permitting the second Moor to
drop to an angle 40 degrees, she
rolled down to the ground without
much injury except to receive sever
al pretty bad bruises. Miss McCul
loufh was also tumbled out and slid
down or climbed down a studding.
In the fall or throw down to Mr. K.,
he had his left ankle badly
wrenched and sprained, it being
swollen to more than twice its nor
mal size. The little babe received
several bad scratches on its head.
Mr. Kessinger's home was the
least damaged of the three, though
all the the windows and doors were
shaken out and the interior is in a
state of chaos. The family and
guests all escaped injury.
The Financial Loss.
It is hard to estimate the loss pe
cuniarily, but it will reach at least
if 10, 000 to $15,000, for no insuaance
companies insure against such losses.
Mr. Mahin's loss will be in the neigh
borhood of $0,000. for it practically
means the rebuilding of the house
from the ground up. It will take
$2,01)0 or $3,000 at least to replace
Mr. Kessinger's loss, and nearl5' the
same at Mr. Uosenberger's.
The lives of 20 people in all were
imperiled by the explosion.

The Journal tnus annuuies iu
The cause of this deTihsh deed is
apparent on the face of it, from the
fact that these three homes, whose
owners are interested in the prosecu
tion of the saloons, were destroyed
after there was an indication that the
law would be enforced.

Farewell Banquet to M. Arnold and Wire
The Fresldent Kemembered.
The rooms of the Standard club
was the scene of a brilliant assem
blage last evening, the occasion being
a farewell banquet to M. Arnold and
wife. Some 40 couples from the
three cities were present. The prin
cipal feature of the evening's enter
tainment was dancing, which was in
dulged in until 11 o'clock, when the
guests partook of a delicious spread.
Mr. Arnold has been associated with
the business interests of the tri-
cities for 25 years past, having sold
out his grocery business here a few
weeks ago in order to embark in trie
dry goods line. His failure to find a
suitable building for a store has
brought about his determination to
remove. Mr. Arnold and his amiable
wife have many friends in the three
cities who while regretting their de
parture exceedingly will wish them
success and happiness in their new
home. Mr. and Mrs. Arnold leave
tomorrow for Milwaukee, after which
they will visit the World's Fair and
from there they go to Savanna, Ga.,
where Mr. Arnold w ill probably lo
A Happy Presentation.
A very happy feature of the occa
sion which will long be remembered
by those present was the presentation
of a handsome remembrance in the
shape of a beautiful silver cigar box
containing 100 fine imported cigars
to Louis Kohn, the popular president
of the club. The presentation was
made by Edward Kahn on behalf of
the members of the organization and
was ably responded to by Mr. Kohn.
The box of uniiiue design artis
tically decorated and bears the
following inscription: "Presented
