people as 4vcre e cr seen together

east of Ulack Hawk Watch Tower,
for a bath" in the shoal water at the
upper end of the island near the pier
which the jrovcrnment has erected in
connection with its Hennepin canal
const ruction. There were three
you ii ladies and the same number
of gentlemen in the party, all clad in
their bathing suits. Fifteen minutes
later two of the party, Miss Fannie
Sudlov Mid Clark lbiford. were
drowned, while three of the others
had the most remarkably narrow es

The Sail Ei eut.
The circumstances of the sad event
as relate.! by the snrvivers and oth
ers at Cnnp Yagabondia, where a
heart-ron ling spectacle was pre
sented to an Aniits representative,
who readied the scene shortly after
the occurrence this morning, are that
the party composed of Misses Fannie
Sudlow. Mary l)art and May llland
inp; anil Messrs. Clark ltnford. A'i!l
Keator and Cy Dart, Jr., had gone
up to tin head of the island to en
joy a bath near the hore where I ho
water wns shallow, as had been the
custom yince 1 he establishment of
the cam J last Monday. The thought
of the hast danger wa probably
the last to enter the mind of any of
the light-hearted grtmi. On reach
ing the bar. which extends out into
the river. Mi-s Sudlow was the tirst
to enter he waler. She was followed
cio-e!v bv Mr. l'.uford. Then fol
lowed' M s lari and Will Keator. and
then M r islanding, who was accom
panied bv t'v I:irl. and just as the
latter w: s about to step into the
water, h heard a .-cream, and the
entire partv preceding him was
lilunged into the water. I'nknown to
them tic water had worn away a
pocket t 'trough the sand, and a hole
H or l'J feet deep formed., into which
the vol nir people stepped. Miss
lart and Miss lilanding and Mr.
Keator scrambled for the sand bat
on the opposite side and reached it
safely, though with all it waseipial
toadea:h i-truggle. and the young
people saved themselves only after
the mos: der-pcratc efforts.
How tlie Young Teople IVrislieil.
It was apparent from the first that
Miss S idlow had gone into the
deepest water. She could not swim,
but vii nig Ib.ifor.l could, and the
version of those who witnessed the
t raged v is that he endeavored to
save In r. bu not only did the
voting iadv perish, but her gallant
companion lost his life. too. As
soon as young Dart saw the peril of
his ct mpaniotis. and realizing
that he could not swim himself,
he ru-hed down the bank and
seizing a boat was joined by a fisher
man wi o happened to be near by.
and t he v pulled out into ihe river.
Miss Sudlow's body Hunting by just
as thev did so. ami grasping it they
hurried to "hore. The lady gasped
once as her body was taken from the
water. and every possible ef
fort wa-; made to resuscitate her. but
to no a' ail. MMic body was laid out
in the camp, where but a short while
before the beautiful girl was the
merries' t of the party.
The llmlies Itronulil H.iiiic.
Searching parties were immediate
ly formed ami the river dragged for
the body of Mr. liuford, and these
efforts were rewarded by success at

Knox at once took both in charge and
brought them to this city, the ar
rangements for the funeral lieing yet
to lie determined upon.
The ody of Mr. lUiford was recov
ered 1 v Kami Downing and Jacob
Imhoft and was about '')0 feet from
where the accident occurred.
Coroner llawes, on being apprised
of the ciicumstances, determined
that no inquest was necessary, and
he will spare the grief-strieken fami
lies that annoyance.
As B inn as the news of the casual
ty reac lied the city, people began to
hurry to the scene of the catastrophe.
Physicians were telephoned for and
DrI Ludewig was soon at the camp ad
ministering to the survivors, all of
whom had sustained a great nervous
shock. The doctor divided his time
among the patients and soon all were
on a fiiir way to recovery.
T lie I'nfortunate Young People.
Miss Sudlow was the only daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. II. B. Sudlow,
and attained her 21st birthday last
January. She had just completed a
courst in an eastern seminary, grad
uating with high honors. She was a
sweet, lovable young woman, the
joy of her parents' hearts, and the
light of their home.
Clark II. Huford was the only son
of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Buford." He
was 21 the past spring. Had re
cently graduated in a creditable
manner from the state university at
Champaign, having perfected him
self in the science of architecture,
and had formed a partnership with
K. S. Hammett, of Davenpert,
the lirm having embarked under
name of Hammatt & IJuford, with
every promise of success, the junior
member being particularly ambitious
and enthusiastic over his prospects, j
the plans for the new No. 4 building
adopted by the board of education
being largely evidence of his skill
ami talent. He was the pride of his
parents, whose entire hopes were
centered upon him. and the blow
that has fallen upon them in his sud
den loss is well nigh crushing.
The camp which was formed last
Monday had intended to continue
another week, it had proven .-uch a
-sjiecess, and yesterday Mr. and Mrs.
Sudlow were among the guests
of the day. The party was
chaperoned by Mr. and Mrs. F. D.
Taylor and was composed of. Misses
May lilanding. Anna Frvsinger, Jen
nie Wilcox, Bessie Lee, Margaret
Stewart, Fannie Sudlow, May Dart.
Anna Moore, Sarah Dart, and Messrs.
Tom Lee. (ieorge Price, Clark II.
Huford, Will Keator, Stewart Annan.
Cy Dart, Ed Denkmann and Franlz
Mr. and Mrs. Taylor were boih ab
sent at the time of the tragedy. Mr.
Taylor having gone up the river to
secure some fishing bait, and Mrs.
Taylor having gone to the Tower to
meet some friends. Before' depart
ing she asked the bathers not to start
until her ret urn. but they thinking
she was only anxious to see the fun,
jokingly disregarded the injunction.
Mr. Sudlow was at Cable at the
time, and was notified by telegraph,
coming in on a special, an receipt of
the distressing intelligence.

The Davenport Business Men's as
sociation at its meeting last evening
adopted the following resolution:
Your committee, to which was
referred certain resolutions offered
by Mr. Boss and Mr. MeGuirk. to
gether with various communications
in reference to silver coinage and the
currency; question now agitating our
country, begs leave to report and
offers for adoption by the associa
tion t he following:
Whereas. The business of the
country is undergoing a serious de
pression, resulting in many failures
and a general paralysis of trade:
Whereas. This state of affairs is
traceable to the w ant of . confidence
in the value and stability of our cir
culating medium caused by the com
pulsory purchase of large amounts of
silver; be it
Besolved. That the i xperiment of
compelling the government to pur
chase 4.61 o.(KM ounces of silver
monthly has had a fair trial and has
proved a detriment to all commer
cial interest-;, and has created dis
trust at home and abroad: and be it
Ile-olve.l. That the Davynport
Business Men's association earnest
ly urges congress about to assemble
in special session to immediately re
peal Ihe compulsory purchase
clause of the so-called Sherman act,
and that in Ihe judgment of this as
sociation a representative commis
sion should be appointed by con
gress, which commission should
study the whole body of coinage and
currency laws of the United States
and other countries and report at
the regular session of congress to
the end that a comprehensive plan
for a safe and elast ie currency may
be carefully mat tired in the light of
the w irld's experience.

Here's a Coitil ieat ion.
Yesterday Sheriff Hud Winter, of
Grundy county, M..., arrived in Dav
enport with requisition papers for J.
W. Brown, arrested by Sheriff Junes,
of Scott county. Brown was turned
over to Sheriff Winter, and under
pretense of obtaining money to settle
the mutter he (Hrow'n) enticed Sheriff
Winter to this side of the river and
then refused to go back to Missouri
with him. Now Brown, through the
efforts of his attorney,. Major Beards
lev, brings a counter charge against
the officials of Grundy county for
blackmail, lie claims that the charge
is running a gambling house and says
that the ea-e was settled once for a
certain amount of money, which was
paid, with the exception of 2.",
which was to be paid in a certain
time, and not being paid, he was ar
rested. The Twics-llH: t Trouble.
George Tw iggs was arranged be
fore Justice Eagle this morning on
tlie charge of assault with intent to
commit great bodily injury. Twiggs
was accused of assaulting another
eoloreit imtivnluai Ike Hart liv
name with a brick bat. There was
great interest manifested in the af
fair in colored circles, and the ius-
t ice's office was crowded with a large
delegation from that section of tlie
community. Ihe tight occurred at
Hart's place on the east, side Sunday
night, and the general tenor ofthe
evidence was to the effect that it was
a vigorous and many-sided row. Af
ter the testimony was all in. Justice
Eagle ruled against the charge con
tained in the information and fined
Twiggs S3 and costs for assault and
batterv. Lizzie Kellv, a (kiskv dam
sel, was also implicated in the im
broglio, she being accused of smiting
Hart on the craiuum with a water
pitcher. She was not on hand, how
ever, owing to the fact that she took
Ircnch leave at the county jail
Wednesday night. She was conlined
on the top floor, but the jailer, im-
pelleu by kindly instincts, leaving
the cage doorconiniuiiicatingwith the
attic open, Lizzie meandered to the
second storv and jumped from a win
dow on that Hoor. And she is still
numbered among the missing.
Henry Xold. who was arrested for
assault upon Chief Brahm of the fire
department, was let dowji casv tin
morning. He simply apologized and
paid the costs.
Chris Lee got into an altercation
with John Boro last night and final
ly tried to pound him. Lee got in
only once punch, but Magistrate
Schroeder taxed him $." for that thi
Chief Sexton made some changes
in his force today. Ollicer Cromp

other changes also.
