Last evening between S and y
o lock Ollieer Oh weiler was called
upon to investiaie the eonduet of
two women living in a brick house,
at 321 Seventeenth street. When
the ollieer art ived at the house, he
found two men and two women
playing cards, and having a general
good time. Addressing one of the
men, he said:
What are you doing here'.'"
"Well, her hus :uid left her last

for her. ' was the rep! v. And
the other man being asked the same
OjUestion. he repliil tiint he was just
playing a social game of cards. The
officer then turnel to the women and
accused tlieni o running an im

and giving a pretty good account of
themselves., the t llieer left.

lint between 1 and 1 o'clock a
man came staggering into the police
station faint from the loss of blood.
On being questioned, it was found
that his name wa- ltiehard McSorlev,
the husband of one of the women.
lr. Sala was sun moned and dressed
the man's injuries, which he found
to have been inllieted with a pocket
knife. KighJ s'.abs were found be
sides a number o:' bruises sustained
After restoratives were given Mc
Sorley told his story that on dast
Monday he left home with the in
tention of getting work in Milan or
on the canal. He succeeded in ob
taining work in Milan, which he
finished last evei ing and came home
to spend the nig it. but was to go to
work on the canal at noon today.
When he reached his house he fomid
his wife ami her sister in eompanv
with a man by the n:ime of (Jrove
and a stranger, and he then told his
wife that he did lot intend to work
out there and have her conduct her

for his clothes, saying to his wife
that she could do as she was doing,

This morning McSorley "s wife
called at the police station and
wanted him to go home, but he re
fused, saving lie would rather sleep
in the gutters" of the city even if he
knew he would die than to go to his
former home. As yet the police
have not captured his assailants, and

has disappeared with the two
Dr. Sala said this morning that Mc
Sorlev was getting along as well as
he po'ssiblv could be expected to un
der thr circums ances. and that he
hail no fears of consequences unless
blood poisoning should ensue. The
cuts, he said, were all deep, but the
man's, life had cen saved by his
clothing, and the fact that all had
stuck the bone in-stead of penetrating
a vital part. Three were on the
shoulder blade while two struck
ribs. There were three smaller ones
w hich did not am unit to much.
It has since been learned that the
second one of the assailants is known
by the name of Williams, and that in
Davenport Wednesday night he
knocked a man senseless with a beer
glass, and lied to this city under the
impression that he had killed him.
The r.lKllt'-litl, Street I'uveinflit
Patience, has al out ceased to be a
virtue with the property holders on
I'ighteenth stro t. sotith of Fifth
avenue, because of the delay in com
pleting the pavement. The con
tractors. Edward & Walsh, have had
the street in readiness for the work
for some time, bi t the National Clay

delivering the brick. 'Fifth avenue
will be reached tonight, and it is
hoped that the clay company w ill he

the material for the next two blocks
as the people facing the street are
practically shut off from it entire

pushed the brick manufacturers as
they have a right to do under the

The Muscatine Journal of last
evening has the following relative to
the progress of the Drnry toll road
The Drnry Toll Road company is
all ready to commence operations,
having secured the charter and ob
tained the right of way. Under the
terms of the charter the road must
be commenced this year, which
means that as much as is undertaken
must also be (iuished this year. The
special point that interests Musca

1101s neighbors. Their soring tra.
is something which Muscatine mer
chants have never yet enjoyed, either
by ferry or high bridge, on account
of the always impassable condition
of the old dug" road at that season
of the year. This fact alone should
interest every business man and citi
zen of Muscatine. The Journal no
tices that the bridge company has
waked up to the importance of this
matter and has issued the following
call for a meeting of its stockholders
MrscATiNF., Ia., Aug. 10. lSltS.
To the stockholders" of the Mus
catine Hridge company: there
will be a meeting of the
stockholders of the Muscatine
Bridge company at the city hall in
Muscatine on Friday evening, Aug

The pressure of time for the con
struction of the road this vear is a
very important matter. In accord
ance with its charier the Toll Bridge
company must advertise for bids for
the construction of the road for two
weeks before letting the contracts.
This will make it impossible to com

ever, when the contract is once let
the work will be pushed for all it is
worth with a large force of men and
Hi? Thii!ff For Muscatine.
The best psted of our Illinois
neighbors say that muscatine mer
chants will lie surprised at the in
crease in their Illinois trade when
1 his permanent road is completed.
The toll charge will cut 110 figure
and Illinois people living 20 and 2."i
miles from the bridge sav thev will
make Muscatine their regular trad
ing point if they can always have
t he assurance that they can reach
here without being stalled bv the
bottom roads. The completion of
the Drury toll road will give them
this permanent assurance.
So it will be seen that Muscatine
proposes to reap a harvest out of
this public improvement in Rock
Island county and to increase its
inroads into the trade of the lower
end of Rock Island county which
ought in reality to be brought to
Rock Island, and which would if
there was a proper direct road to
the lower end, or if the Milan
bridges were free.

The Thistle came down with eight
strings of lumber, and the Kit Carson
with 10 strings.

A tirst-elass programe of wrest

I catch-as-catch-can wrestling match
between Harry Woods, of Big Rock,
Iowa, and George Reynolds. Thev

declared a draw after a very des
perate struggle. Next Harry "Graft
and Charles Goobee wrestled a
match, eatch-as-eatch-ean, Goebcc
winning after a good match.
Then Farmer Burns wrestled these
two powerful-looking athletes to

the farmer simply toyed with them
when it came to wrest ling, winning
two falls from each in a few min
utes' time amidst great applause.

The event of the evening was the
bout in which Denny Hurley, of Chi
cago, challenger of America at 122
pounds, was to spar four rounds
with George Allen, of St. Eouis. for
points. Allen commenced to slug
from the start, and Hurley retal

that the referee stopped proceedings,
which were hot enough while they
lasted, and bid fare to show some in

railroad reduction on the Rock Isl
and, today said: All western roads
arc not making as much money as
they should, but if the Rock Island
loiks say tuey will cut down wages
for 30 davs and then bring them up
to standard wages they will do it."
"But as regards letting out union
switchmen, what do you think?"
"Well, this the Switchmen's Mu
tual Aid society is a very strong one,
and its members always look for pro
motion of a good man. and fearing
that this will give them too much of
an 'edge,' so to speak, they will not
promote them, but will take some
one else instead."
"Do you think the employes will
accept a 10 per cent reduction?"1 was
No, I hardiv think thev will, un-
less at the end of !0 davs thev receive
their old wages.1'
To Seek an Expression.
The different brotherhoods in the
Rock Island road's employ have
appointed representatives to go over
the entire system and secure the
ballots of the men on the question of
a 10 per cent reduction in wages for
i'O days. There is a man appointed
for each division to secure the ex
pression of the men. The switch
men of this division are disposed to
disapprove of the idea, though no
action has vet been taken as a bod v.
