BURNED IN EFFIGY.
CoL, W. E. Stevens Given an I'npleasant
Col. W. E. Stevens, of Moline, who
was bound over recently to the cir
cuit court for assaulting Mrs. Martin
Derkens, with intent to commit a
gross crime, had an unpleasant re
minder last eveniug that things are
getting warm for him in Moline.
About 9 o'clock parties unknown
erected an effigy at the colonel's
front gate made of straw", saturated
it with kerosene and set it on lire.
It set up a big blaze, and it is said
the incident has alarmed the colonel
considerably, and that he may ap
peal for police protection if further
demonstration of public feeling is
In a SpIoua Condition.
The Moline Republican-Journal
says of Mrs. Martin Derkens, of that
city who recently had Col. W. E.
Stevens arrested for criminal assault:
Dr. Arp saw Mrs. Derkens twice
yesterday. In the forenoon when he
called she was suffering more than
on the previous day, but he did not
discover any cause for immediate
alarm. In the afternoon the lad'
was thought to be worse, and Dr.
Arp was again called. It is a very
peculiar case, and while the attend
ing physician is hopeful, there is no
denying the fact that the woman's
condition is very serious. Dr. Arp
is doing all possible for her. Should
the doctor deem it necessary at any
time the overseer of the poor is
ready to provide -another physician
for consultation. 1-ast evening.
State's Attorney Searle was advised
of the woman's condition, and he
came up to Moline in the evening.
He will probably be ready to take
her ante-mortem statement at any
time if it becomes necessary.
