This nioi ninjr at 5:30 in the upper
Koek Island yards at Fort v.foiirth
street, as passenger train No. 3 was
pulling in from the east. Engineer
Webber noticed a man apparently
dead, lvin r across the west-bound
track, and when the train arrived at
the depot he untitled Niht Yardnias
ter Duncan, and lie took a switch en
gine and recovering the man took him
down to :he depot. Prom letters
fotiud up. n the man's person, it is
supposed his name is Thomas Tolle,
his home being in Nebraska City,
Neb. It s also supposed that the
man came from Chicago, as letters of
recent date are postmarked there.
The man was apparently between 2"
and ISO years .of age. There was a.
deep cut across the abdomen, where
a wheel h:.d passed oyer, ami also a
hole in the head.
Coroner Hawes was called and a
jury composed of J. AV. Day, fore

Einfeldt. .vas summoned. Dr. IIoI

the bowi Is protruding from this
wound. : ml some smaller bruises
about the right.knee. Witness said
either wo' ind in the head or spine
would cause death.
Frank Hushno was the next wit
ness calle 1. He testified to being a
switchman in the Koek Island yards,
and said that Engineer Dickernian
of No. :i, told h i in that a man
was lying across the track at the
crossing on Forty-fourth street,
and he in turn notified Night

he in the meantime accompanied by
Yardmas er Duncan, going up on en

which were found lying across the
tracks with the head "inside the rails.
Witness also testified that two un
known men told him that the man
was kille I by freight train No. '.):!.
The coroner's jury then adjourned
until tomorrow morning at 7:"i.
and the remains were taken
in charge by Undertaker Knox.
From -etters found upon his
person, it is supposed that he was at
onetime editor of the Omaha Ferret,
and also that he was intimate with a
young la ly in Des Moines. Iowa.

I.ncul F.fl'i rt HhouUI lp Made to l'rovlde fur
The A iters of yesterday spoke of
the prospective, excursions to be made
to this locality under the auspices of
the stati board of agriculture, and
in honoi of. and for the benelit of the
foreign commissioners to the agri
cultural building at the World's fair.
The date of the excursion is Aug. l'.l
two weeks from tomorrow and
while ti( definite plans arc yet com
pleted, it is believed to be the inten
tion to come, west on the Koek Isl
and din ct to Koek Island ami Mo
line, and then proceed by boat to
Clinton, and thence back to Chicago
via the Northwestern. Of course,
the success of the undertaking, us
well as he impressions created in
the min Is of the visitors will depend
largely upon the reception accorded
theiii at this end of the line. In this
view of the matter what will the
local populace do in the premises?
Had not we better be stirring about
and adopting some general arrange
ment of making the brief stay of the
foreign visitors pleasant. A visit to
Kocklsland arsenal, a trip to the
Watch Tower and drives about the
twin cities should all be included in
the program of entertainment.
Worth Looking After.
A few months ago the three cities
joined in a movement of this kind.
They jtintlv purchased a topograph
ical "map and took such other steps as
would tlraw attention to this locality
among visitors to the fair from
abroad. They talked of excursions,
etc., and other proper courses of pro
cedure such as would result in good
to the t ommunity. Now the excur
sions a-e coming". How shall we re
ceive them? Let the council and the
Improvement association join hands
in f urnishirg the answer to the ques-sion.

The Ro-k laland's Professional Rain Maker
at M uses tine.
Muscatine is to be the scene of an
art i ticial rain experiment. The Koek
Island expert rain producer is ex
pected on the ground tonight, and
hence the people of the lower end of
Rock Island county at least may ex
pect a forced precipitation some
where about Saturday night or Sun
day. The Muscatine melon tields
may be thanked for this little novel
ty in the way of tampering with na
ture's forces. The island crops are
suffering in consequence of the im
penetrable drought that has so far
existed. These crops include melons
and sweet potatoes, though the latter
crop is in a better condition at pres
ent than the former. The continued
hot son and no rain lias converted
the island sand into a veritable fur
nace and cooked the earlier melons
badly, and the vines also showing its
bad effects. There is no question
but that s good rain once a week for
the next three weeks will -treble the
yield on Muscatine island.
The Koek lMlanil to the ICesetie.
In view of the fact that the Koek
Island road annually hauls from
1,600 to 2,000 carloads of island pro
duce to different parts of the count ry
it is to that transportation company's
interest that the crops give a full
yield. Realizing that fact, several of
the island gardners and farmers rc
ipiested the Muscatine agent of the
Koek Island to communicate with W.
I. Allen, assistant general manager
of the road, with a view of having
C. Ik Jewell, of (ioodland, Kansas,
the successful rainmaker in their em
ploy, come to Muscat fne and bom
bard the heavens. Agent (ioiild tel
egraphed Mr. Allen and received
word Wednesday that Jewell was in
southwestern Kansas and could not
come for at least three or four days.
As every day without rain is bad for
t'.c crops, it was .felt that was bad
news. Manager Allen was interes
ted, however, and a second dispatch
was received from him Thursday
morning as follows:
Chicago. Aug. 8. C. M. Could.
Agent: Rainmaker Jewell leaves
Chickasaw. Kan., on No. I today,
ami will come through, leaving St.
Joe on No. 10 tomorrow. I have
told him to stop at Fruitland. the
work at that station being more cen
trally located for covering the melon
and potato districts. Are there any
other points in your vicinity that
would like to have him? His rain
falls generally cover a section of
country i' to (!0 miles each way.
W. L. Allen.
How it Operate.
A good deal has been heard here
concerning the Rock Island's work
at rainmaking in the drouthy west,
but all sounds mythical at this dis
tance; a good ileal like Iowa prohibi
tion sounds to a New York rounder.
There is more to it than mere talk
ing, though. The following is a dis
patch from Topeka. Kan.:
The Rock Island railroad officials
have such faith in the results of the
rainmaking experiments of their
agent, C. P.. Jewell, of (ioodland,
that they have fitted out another rain
ear and sent it west today under the
supervision of H. Hutchinson, who
has been Jewell's assistant in his re
cent work. Koth men have been at
work at Sugdon for several days, and
Monday night a heavy rain fell. To
day Jewell went to Phillipsbnrg.
and Hutchinson will meet his new
car, just finished, at the Horton
shops at Clifton The company ex
pects to keep the two cars on the road
for the remainder of the season.

Again W. II. Harris' ever popular
Nickel Plate circus is with us. It
gave an entertainment this afternoon
and will give one more performance
on the postoflice site opposite Har
per's theatre this evening. It is the
earnest endeavor of the management
of Harris' Nicked I'late. whose repu
tation is already established in this
city, to carry out all its promises
just as heralded in advance. The
show conies this season decidedly im
proved, and embraces among its
principal features, talent of a very
superior quality. including an
abundance of skilled feats of
horsemanship, striking aerial fea
tures, novel athletic astonishments,
comical clowns, a clever troupe of
trained animals, including the fa
mous elephant Oypsy, and a host of
other novelties, not forgetting to
mention the $ 10.O0D den of perform
ing lions. Taken all in all, there is
certainly not a bet ter 1-ring circus
on the road than the above organiza
tion now in the city, and considering
t he extremely low price of admis
sion charged, all should avail them
selves of the opportunity of at
tending. Remember only one more
performance tonight on the post
oflice lot, and 20 cents admission.

from Illinois. When the congress
men read their morning papers they
found a big editorial telling how han

York Sun arrived, the congressmen
found another editorial concerning
"the Hon. Benjamin T. Cable, the
rich and clever democratic mana

the senate. When any one speaks
of the senatorship to Mr. Cable he
goes off to one sidp and has a little

At the Illinois headquarters there
is much confidence expressed that

The other two candidates

point that while Ohio is not a demo
